The 36th WrestleMania, WWE’s flagship annual PPV event, went ahead this weekend despite the ongoing Coronavirus pamdemic.
The event, which was scheduled to take place inside the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida in front of some 80,000 fans, was instead broadcast live from the company’s performance centre in Orlando over 2 nights (April 4th and 5th) with no live audience at all.
According to Nielsen Social, WrestleMania saw 13.8 million total social media interactions on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, +57 per cent on last year’s WrestleMania, and most in WWE history.
WWE superstar Adam Copeland, better known as Edge, wrote on his Instagram account: ” […] hopefully you watched WrestleMania and were able to get lost in it and try to forget about our current reality, even if only for a few hours.”
