WWE Has Until Thursday Evening To Tape All Of Wrestlemania 36
The show must go on for WWE, especially with Wrestlemania 36 so close. They have been aggressively taping content for the coming weeks, as the situation in COVID-19 worsens. Over today & tomorrow they will be taping the content for Wrestlemania to ensure that this can go off without a hitch. With it being stretched over two nights, will WWE make it despite a new tight deadline?
County Officials In Florida Cracking Down
Orange County officials in Florida have mandated a “stay at home” order. this goes into effect at midnight on Friday morning. This at least means that WWE will have finished taping everything up to and including WrestleMania 36, as the order will be lifted on April 9th. This means they only have two days to tape 8+ hours of high level professional wrestling. It will be the do or die moment for Wrestlemania 36 that we will experience in a future WWE 24 special.
What Will WWE Do If They Don’t Make It?
They will likely be taping the most important matches first, things like Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg, ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena, Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler and more. This will ensure their biggest feuds are paid off for this show. We could see matches like Street Profits vs. Andrade & Angel Garza & Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley cut from the card if things get tights, as well as any other matches or segment not deemed essential. They will have to do as much as possible to fill two nights, but video packages will fill a good chunk of that time regardless.
A Potential Backup Plan In Texas
Should WWE not be able to get everything done in time over the next two days, there is one option they could use. There is similar order in a key part Texas at the moment, set to end on April 3rd. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has a similar setup in place there for his ‘Reality of Wrestling’ promotion, which could be used in a pinch for the last minute preparation of Wrestlemania. This would be a hard move, but a possible one that would buy them some extra time.
