WWE news: CM Punk's tweet responding to WrestleMania 36 announcement goes viral

WrestleMania 36 will go ahead on April 5, but not from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, as originally planned. 

Instead, the biggest wrestling show of the year will air live from WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando. A statement confirming the news reads: 

“In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place.

“However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view.

“Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania.”

There’s been plenty of reaction to the news from WWE fans, superstars and staff. Some are happy with the decision, while others can’t believe WrestleMania going ahead.  

CM Punk, though, used the opportunity to crack a joke and ruin Roman Reigns… In the same tweet. 

Responding to the news, he wrote: “Well that’s one way to make sure Roman finally gets not booed and nobody chants for meeeeeeee.” 

Brutal. As you can probably guess, there was a mixed reaction to Punk’s tweet. 

The former WWE Champion was called out by someone for ‘begging for a return’ but he responded quite brilliantly. 

“I’m not the one texting begging for a match with me at mania,” he tweeted back. 

Well, that’s quite an interesting subplot. Although, there’s probably no way we’ll ever find out who – if anybody – is ‘begging’ Punk for a WrestleMania match. 

But his original point stands, with no one in the Performance Center for the show, there will be no boos for Roman Reigns. 

Although, should he win the Universal Championship from Goldberg, there would be very few complaints anyway.
