Seth Rollins is unsure if WrestleMania 36 will go ahead or not, saying the show is ‘up in the air’ during an Instagram live Q&A session.
As things stand, WrestleMania 36 is still scheduled to take place on April 5 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa despite the coronavirus pandemic.
WWE has already taken steps in reaction to the pandemic by moving their Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown shows to their Performance Center in Orlando for the foreseeable future.
However, they are yet to make any altercations to WrestleMania, but many fans believe the show will be eventually be postponed until a later date, or cancelled in the Tampa area by their officials.
Speaking during an Instagram live video, Seth Rollins shared with fans the information that he knows about the status of WrestleMania 36.
The Monday Night Messiah, who will be at the Performance Center this week for Raw, said ‘nobody knows’ if WrestleMania is going ahead, and that fans should just wait for further announcements on WWE social media accounts.
Rollins said, via Fightful: “WrestleMania. I don’t know! Don’t ask me questions! I don’t know! I am not in charge of that. I go where they tell me. This Monday, I’ll be in Orlando at the PC doing Raw in front of nobody just like SmackDown was on Friday. Probably just how NXT will be on Wednesday.
“About WrestleMania. Nobody knows. It’s all up in the air. So just wait for further announcements from WWE social pages.”
Rollins is currently feuding with Kevin Owens on Raw, and their storyline is expected to culminate in a match at this year’s WrestleMania.
Even with the coronavirus pandemic, Vince McMahon is yet to cancel or, more likely, postpone his biggest event of the year, but the decision could be made for him over the next few days.
That’s because Tampa’s Hillsborough County has said if Vince doesn’t postpone WrestleMania soon, they may be forced to ‘pull the plug’ and do it for him for public safety reasons.
We’ll have to wait and see if this year’s Showcase of Immortals still goes ahead, and if Rollins vs Owens is added to the card, over the next few days and weeks.
