WrestleMania 36 continues to get weirder: a few days after announcing the event will take place at the WWE Performance Center in front of no fans due to coronavirus concerns, WWE has now announced that the Show of Shows will be a two-night event, at 7pm ET on both Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5. It will also, for some reason, be hosted by former New England Patriots tight end and reported recent WWE signee Rob Gronkowski.

A two-night WrestleMania has been a hot topic in the rumor mill and on fans’ wishlists for some time now, especially following NJPW’s successful two-night Wrestle Kingdom event earlier this year. But nobody thought it would manifest in this way. WWE seems to be doubling down on the weirdness of this situation. One thing’s for sure: for one reason or another, this will be a WrestleMania we will never forget.
WrestleMania will air live on Saturday, April 4th and Sunday, April 5th on the WWE Network.
