WWE WrestleMania 36 ‘likely to be cancelled by bosses’ over coronavirus fears

In a big development surrounding WrestleMania 36, local authorities have suggested it’s a matter of time until the show – taking place on 5 April – is cancelled.

With the status of WWE’s massive annual extravaganza still up in the air – despite the fact it’s set to take place in less than three weeks at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium – we now have the strongest indication so far that it will have to be postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to Fox 13 Tampa Bay, Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller admitted he may have to ‘pull the plug’ if the company doesn’t make the tough decision on its own.

He said: ‘I’m hoping that Vince McMahon and WrestleMania and WWE make the call themselves but a week from now, if they’ve not done that and we’re still in the situation we’re in, we’ll probably have to pull the plug on that.’

While Florida governor Ron DeSantis has called for all mass gatherings to be cancelled over the next 30 days, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister urged WWE to ‘follow suit’ and show some ‘caution’ in an unprecedented situation.
