WrestleMania will continue as planned, but will be presented in a unique way which has never happened. At WrestleMania 2 in 1986, the event took place from Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. The event in 2020 will have the difference of being on two different nights. As of now there are no report about where the locations are occurring.

In the video below, you could hear more details about this unique logistics surrounding the biggest event in sports entertainment.

While speaking to Metro, Edge discussed how important that the world could be entertained by the SuperBowl of pro wrestling..

“This year more than any year we are all in the midst of something we have never experienced before, the world really needs outlets. Whether that is books, whether that is movies, whatever it is, just to be able to try and forget and laugh and have fun and remember what it is to be human.”

“Here’s how I’ve always looked at this job. My responsibility is to make you forget your responsibilities for two or three hours a day, or during that show. That is a huge responsibility, and it’s a privilege. I don’t look past it. I didn’t have it for nine years. Now I come back, and the gravity of that responsibility is not lost on me.

“Sure, it’s entertainment. Yes, we’re jumping around in tights. But a time like this, it’s very, very important. I truly believe that.”

WWE has confirmed WrestleMania 36 will not feature battle royal matches this year to limit the amount of Superstars gathering in the ring.

According to multiple sources, the annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the women’s battle royal matches were pulled from the card to abide by CDC and government recommendations as much as possible while producing the event.

We’re told this is one of the many precautionary measures WWE is taking during the event to “flatten the curve.” As previously reported, the company also has a team of physicians testing everyone entering the Performance Center to ensure they’re healthy before entering the facility.
