WWE news: WrestleMania 36 looks set to be pre-taped as it has stopped being advertised as 'live'

WrestleMania 36 is set to be pre-taped for the first time ever

The show must go on for WWE - but not in the way we are used to knowing it.

With many sports being postponed and cancelled across the globe, major wrestling in the U.S.A has survived the crisis.

Both WWE and All Elite Wrestling have continued to produce shows, albeit behind closed doors, and with many people in self isolation are posting strong enough numbers and ratings.

But the big controversy has been WWE deciding to go ahead with broadcasting their flagship pay-per-view - WrestleMania - in an empty arena this year instead of postponing the event until the Summer, when crowds can return.

It's annoyed a lot of fans but several wrestlers - including Hall of Famer Edge - have defended the stance to continue with the show, which has now been extended to a two-night event on April 4 and 5.

That means 36 will be the first Mania to occur over two consecutive nights, and the 'first evers' just keep on coming.

According to POST Wrestling's John Pollock, WWE sent round a memo to employees telling them to refrain from advertising Mania as being 'streamed live' on the WWE Network, per Rajah.

WrestleMania 36 will take place inside the WWE Performance Center

It's by no means any confirmation, but it seems to indicate that WrestleMania for the very first time will be pre-taped rather than going live across the world.

It doesn't really make a single difference considering there will be no crowd there, and spoilers are unlikely to get out due to the limited amount of people allowed inside the WWE Performance Center at any one time.

But it is rather strange to think that WWE's biggest show will have already been filmed before the fans get to view it.

The expectation is that matches will be filmed in multiple locations to get around the limited personnel factor, and the card is looking pretty stacked now, with NINE bouts officially made, including Roman Reigns against Goldberg.

There could be more to come, but even with no crowd to witness it live, WrestleMania 36 should still be an entertaining watch!
