I'm still hoping Vince will come to his senses (yeah, I know) and postpones the card. Nobody wants to see Wrestlemania at an empty bingo hall.

Bingo hall?

There are rumors that this move to the PC is something that Vince has to do for insurance reasons. There will be another event at MSG in the summer that will be the "real" WrestleMania. They might not even run the event at the PC, but they have to show that they tried to find an alternative. Who knows? Insurance is definitely a big part of this whole story.

Is there any chance that this will not be the worst Wrestlemania in history?

I don't think it will be the worst WM in history. I'm just hoping that it doesn't go the 6 hours or whatever and gets time shortened to a more manageable 2-3 hrs. I understand not pushing it until summer, because really who wants to see these angles dragging on for another 3 months or so. This way we can get the payoffs, and move on.

I think there are 8 matches so far:

Brock Lesnar vs Drew McIntyre 
Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair
Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler
Goldberg vs Roman Reigns
John Cena vs Bray Wyatt
Undertaker vs AJ Styles
Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins
Edge vs Randy Orton

That's more than enough. They can save tag title matches, and US/IC title matches for Raw and Smackdown.

I agree, but remember this is still technically available on PPV.  They already blocked the time they want with the PPV providers, so if they blocked 8 hours we're getting 8 hours.

WWE dropped the major news on Monday that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, WrestleMania 36 will be moved from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. The move came as an absolute shock to fans, given that it means a card featuring the likes of John Cena, Goldberg, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will take place in front of an empty arena. But according to a new report from wrestling insider The Fight Oracle, who has broken a number of backstage stories in the past, all of these plans could be changed again in the coming weeks.

Obviously, none of this has been confirmed as of yet.

**HUGE WRESTLEMANIA RUMOR**
>WrestleMania will NOT happen from the PC in Orlando. Why?
>WWE’s insurance policy says they have a duty to mitigate damages (in this case that means finding a new venue)
>WWE announced WrestleMania as the new venue w/intent to satisfy that requirement

He continued — "The thought is the City of Orlando will shut down the WrestleMania event from the PC. At this point, WWE will have shown they tried their best to move the event (mitigate damages) and they'd get paid by their insurer. WWE will look to stage WrestleMania June 7. MSG is targeted."

It's worth pointint out that between the White House's advisement that no more than 10 people should gather together in the coming weeks and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's advisement that no mass gatherings with more than 50 people should take place, WWE will already be in a bind trying to put on a show the size of WrestleMania inside the PC.

June 7 is the date that’s been floated for more than a week now. I really hope this is true.

Okay, this all makes sense now. Lets hope this is the plan.

Imagine John Cena calling spots in an empty arena.

Oh lord, I didn't even think about that aspect. The women also. Well at least they have all this free time to put their match together and practice it at the performance center. The WWE wrestlers, announcers and staff involved in Wrestlemania and the buildup should be quarantined until the show to keep them from getting covid. They should only be allowed around eachother. Only essential family members should be allowed in the quarantine zone also. :)

Is that word for word what he typed? He might have some lingering issues if it is.
“Gets not” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue

I believe so. I saw it on PWInsider and didn’t check his Twitter.
