WWE superstars were left angry after hearing the announcement about WrestleMania 36 taking place behind closed doors at the Performance Center. Vince McMahon’s promotion decided to move WrestleMania from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida due to the growing coronavirus pandemic.
WrestleMania, for the first time ever, will be held as a two-night event streaming on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and available on pay-per-view
According to Sportskeeda, the news were received as a “bolt out of the blue” with a lot of confusion at the locker room and some wrestlers are said to be upset with the way things have transpired.
The wrestling giants have sent out a group email to their stars asking them to come back to Orlando, which would be used as a base of operations for the foreseeable future.
Some wrestlers were able to make the journey but others were left behind either as a result of travel issues or self-isolation.
Therefore, some members of the roster are fully filled in with what is about to happen and other are being left in the dark.
