After weeks of back-and-forth between Tampa city leaders and WWE, Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment have made the decision to not hold April's Wrestlemania 36 as a live event in Tampa.

Due to myriad health and safety concerns around the coronavirus pandemic, Wrestlemania will instead be held at the WWE Performance Center at in Orlando increasingly the broadcast taping location for much of WWE's weekly programming  without an audience.

Wrestlemania 36 will take place on a closed set, and broadcast on pay-per-view and livestream on the WWE's website. Concerns over coronvavirus not only caused Wrestlemania to be moved, but also caused a host of independent wrestling events and the annual Wrestlecon all set for Tampa that same week to all be canceled and postponed.
