WWE's WrestleMania 36 to go ahead over two nights for first time as NFL legend Rob Gronkowski hosts

WWE have announced that WrestleMania 36 will take place over two nights for the first time as former NFL legend Rob Gronkowski will host.

The annual event was due to take place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay in Florida on April 5 but has now been moved to WWE's training facility in Orlando. 

But they have announced that it will not only take place at their facility but also across 'multiple locations'.

And it is set to be broadcast behind closed doors due to the coronavirus but will still be shown live on WWE Network on April 4 and 5.

In a statement they wrote: "WrestleMania will not only take place at WWE’s training facility but will include multiple locations over two nights. All locations will be closed sets with only essential personnel."

The NXT Women's title match will see Charlotte Flair fight against Rhea Ripley and in Raw, Shayna Baszler will fight Becky Lynch.
