Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many sporting events have been cancelled as a precautionary measure to fight against COVID-19 germs. However, WWE continues to go with WrestleMania 36 without any delay. However, they made major changes in the plan, initially, WrestleMania 36, was supposed to take place at Reymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida on April 5, 2020. However, due to coronavirus pandemic situation now WrestleMania 36 will take place behind closed doors on April 4 and 5 at WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
WWE also revealed that Goldberg will defend his Universal title against Braun Strowman, this weekend at WrestleMania 36. Roman Reigns was scripted as WWE plan to be Goldberg's opponent at WrestleMania 36, however, The Big Dog just recovered from leukemia a year back. As a preventive measure, WWE took the decision at the last moment to go with Braun Strowman as Goldberg's opponent. It must be noted that Roman Reigns is immunocompromised, putting him at greater risk if he contracts COVID-19.
Apart from these things, we witnessed Daniel Bryan and Shinsuke Nakamura match end in disqualification. Sami Zayn will defend his Intercontinental title against Bryan at WrestleMania 36. Daniel Bryan earned this spot thanks to Drew Gulak, who defeated Nakamura last week on SmackDown which grants Bryan a shot at Sami Zayn's Intercontinental champion. We also saw SmackDown Tag Team Champion The Miz and John Morrison address The Usos and The New Day, their WrestleMania 36 opponents. Miz and Morrison said that Usos and New Day will destroy each other, while The A-Lister and The Shaman of Sexy will climb up the ladder.
