Can you blame them? There is no secret to the fact that WrestleMania 36 is going to be one of the most unique shows in the company’s history. Over the last week, the plans for the show have changed several times and there is still the chance that it is going to change again before the show’s currently scheduled date. Right now, things seem to be as firmly in place as they have been in a few days, but not everyone is happy.
The biggest problem with all of these changes is how WrestleMania will not feel like the biggest show of the year. The event will be taking place in front of no fans at the Performance Center and that is not the kind of thing that makes a show feel like WrestleMania. As it turns out, that might not be the most popular decision among some of the wrestlers.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, a majority of the roster is hoping that WrestleMania will be postponed. There have been various rumors as to what would happen should the show be postponed, with possibilities ranging from holding the show in June at Madison Square Garden or another date in the future. As of now, WrestleMania is scheduled to take place on April 4 and April 5, with some parts of the show possibly being taped elsewhere.
Spoke with a source who states, and this is a direct quote, “a majority of the talent are still hoping that Mania gets postponed”
Take that as you will.

Can you really blame them? Check out what WrestleMania is supposed to look like:
Opinion: I can’t say I blame anyone for being upset about this as the whole idea of WrestleMania is the biggest show of the year. Of course it’s a weird year and there is only so much that can be done, but it must be devastating for wrestlers who are expecting to be going out there in front of 70,000 people and then seeing the minor league training center with no one in the stands. You can’t please everyone, and that’s sad for everyone involved.
