Hold on a second now. We are less than four weeks away from WrestleMania 36 but things are getting rather confusing in a hurry. With so many things changing in the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is not clear what is going to happen with the show but there are a lot of options at the moment. At some point it might not be under WWE’s control though, and that was almost the case this afternoon.
One of the biggest ways that has been used to fight the spread of the virus has been through the banning of large gatherings. This can include numbers all the way down to 250 people in some cases, which would make WrestleMania that much more difficult. It was clear that the city of Tampa, Florida would get involved at some point and that point has now come.
On Thursday afternoon, the Tampa, Florida city government held a meeting regarding the Coronavirus. One of the topics discussed was WrestleMania 36, with the decision being made to wait another week to see if WWE itself will make any changes to the event. Should WWE not, an emergency meeting will be held to make a decision on the future of the show. WWE has stated that if left up to them, the show will go on.
It’s an important meeting. Check out the discussion, which begins at about 52:00:
Should it happen, WrestleMania is going to be huge. Check out some of the things scheduled:
Opinion: It really does seem like the city of Tampa is doing everything they can to not cancel the event, but there is going to come a point when a decision has to be made. Things have already been cut incredible close, but how much time do fans need to cancel reservations and try to get some of their money back? It’s going to get very interesting over the next week but for now, the show will go on.
Do you think WrestleMania will be canceled? What happens if it is? Let us know in the comments below.
