It has been confirmed by WWE that their biggest show of the year in WrestleMania 36 will be emanating from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando with no fans in attendance. The company has also made the announcement that WrestleMania will be split up into two nights on April 4th and April 5th with both shows beginning at 7 PM EST on the WWE Network. Multi-time Super Bowl champion Tight End Rob Gronkowski is set to host both nights. WrestleMania will also take place from multiple locations, other than the Performance Center.
