How WWE of them. On Monday, WWE announced that they would be moving WrestleMania 36 from Raymond James Stadium to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The new venue would have no fans present at the event as the change was forced to be made due to the spread of the Coronavirus. This was one of the biggest changes imaginable, and we might be in for another big change.

With so many changes taking place at once, it seems rather clear that things are being switched up in the blink of an eye. These rapid fire changes are causing a lot of people to be amazed at what they are seeing and with good reason. Who in the world would have ever believed that we could be heading for WrestleMania at the Performance Center? It turns out that even WWE might not have been.

According to the Fight Oracle Twitter account, which has successfully broken stories in the past, WWE will not be holding WrestleMania at the Performance Center and never planned to. The idea behind the announcement was to satisfy their insurance policy saying that they attempted to find a new venue. Instead, WWE will be attempting to run the show on June 7 in Madison Square Garden in New York City. The theory is that the Orlando or Florida government will shut down WrestleMania in the Performance Center, allowing WWE to satisfy the insurance policy and move the show to a larger venue.

WrestleMania has been in the Garden before. Check out some of their moments there:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing where I could imagine it taking place, but I’m not sure how likely it really is. Right now, there is absolutely no guarantee that New York City will be ready to hold the show in June or even months after that. It sounds a lot better than running the show at the Performance Center, but is it a realistic option at this point? WWE may be willing to gamble on that, but if it doesn’t work, I have no idea when or where the show could take place.

Do you think this will work? When do you think the show will take place? Let us know in the comments below.
