Gronkowski to host 2-night WrestleMania event

March 19, 2020

Not only will WrestleMania go on amid the coronavirus pandemic, but it will also be a two-night affair.

WWE announced Wednesday that WrestleMania will take place over two nights, April 4 and 5. On top of that, the annual glitzy pro wrestling spectacular will be hosted by former NFL star Rob Gronkowski.

It was a tweet by Gronkowski that broke the news, followed by a WWE media release confirming the announcement.

On Monday, WWE said WrestleMania would be moving from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, to the promotion’s training facility, the WWE Performance Center, in Orlando, Florida.

A WWE spokesperson told ESPN on Wednesday that the event will take place not only at the training facility but also at multiple other locations. The release Wednesday noted that the two-night event will be held with “only essential personnel” on a closed set during the production, which means no fans will be in attendance at any of the locations.

Upward of 70,000 were initially expected at Raymond James Stadium.

It was previously reported that Gronkowski was in talks with WWE and would appear on the promotion’s “Friday Night SmackDown” this week.

Since last Friday’s SmackDown episode, WWE has been holding its TV shows on a closed set at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
