Well that’s different. There are a lot of things going on in the world at the moment and wrestling is no exception. With so many changes every few moments, you never can tell what is going to happen next. WrestleMania is currently twenty days away and it is looking less and less likely that any kind of traditional show will be taking place. However, there might be another idea.
The changes that the Coronavirus have caused have shaken up the wrestling world, though WWE is managing to stick around with shows at the Performance Center. That doesn’t really work well for WrestleMania, but the company is running out of places to hold the event. With the traditional show not really an option, WWE is considering something else and it would be a first time situation for WrestleMania.
According to TMZ, WWE is considering holding WrestleMania 36 in an empty stadium. There is no word on where the show would be held, or if the company would be required to have a smaller talent pool than usual to meet CDC recommendations. WWE has been holding events at the Performance Center with no fans, which will be the case again with this week’s shows.
Empty arena matches have happened before. Check out the most famous one:
Opinion: I’m not sure I can imagine this happening but we’re in completely uncharted territory with the whole thing. Hopefully things can get a little better in the near future, but for now we might be looking at a very unique setup for WrestleMania. It wouldn’t surprise me to see an empty arena stadium, or perhaps postponing the show. There are all kinds of options, but it’s all over the place at this point.
