Wrestlemania 36 is in danger of being cancelled.
We may have to consider changing the name of this site to the Coronavirus Times. Another popular event is in danger of being cancelled due to fear of the spread of the coronavirus. It appears that Wrestlemania 36, scheduled to take place on April 5, hasn’t been cancelled as of yet. But with the growing concerns of the pandemic spreading, don’t be surprised if it’s on the chopping block.
Tampa City Hall reporter Charlie Fargo tweeted this out in regards to Tampa potentially cancelling Wrestlemania 36.

Just last week the Arnold Sports Festival expo was cancelled. It’s ironic that WWE star Triple H received an award in Ohio some time back and now his company along with the Arnold Sports brand are in the same boat.
Now it appears that WWE is considering cancelling this Friday’s Smackdown event.
In a statement, the WWE had this to say about the potential cancellation of Smackdown:
“WWE has not cancelled Friday Night SmackDown in Detroit, however, based on the current situation, we are putting contingency plans in place in the event that upcoming WWE shows are cancelled by government officials, civil authorities and/or local venues.”
Fear continues to grow and spread as quickly as the virus and things are beginning to look dire.
