Rob Gronkowski to Host “Unprecedented” Two-Night WrestleMania

WrestleMania, Gronkowski

WWE made a huge announcement on Wednesday night when they broke the news that this year’s WrestleMania would be a two-night event, hosted by none other than Rob Gronkowski.

WrestleMania 36 is now set for a historic two-night presentation on WWE Network with former New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski hosting The Show of Shows at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5.

The 2020 edition of The Showcase of the Immortals will make history as the first to span across multiple days.

Earlier this week, it was announced WrestleMania 36 would emanate from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and only essential personnel will be on the closed set during production.

Titles and legacies are on the line as WrestleMania 36 features a loaded slate of matches. Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre challenges WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, Universal Champion Goldberg defends his title against Roman Reigns, and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch looks to fight off the rise of Shayna Baszler. Also, 16-time World Champion John Cena also returns to battle “The Fiend” Bray WyattAJ Styles hopes to put the “final nail in the coffin” of The Undertaker’s career and much more.

Gronkowski revealed the new format and his role as host on his Twitter earlier today. The three-time Super Bowl champion also promised more details when he appears on SmackDown this Friday on FOX at 8/7 C.

Gronkowski is scheduled to appear on this Friday’s episode of SmackDown and promised to reveal more details during his appearance. With no fans set to be in attendance due to the coronavirus threat, having a hype man like Gronk host the festivities will certainly add to the star factor that WrestleMania is known for.

This marks a historic moment for WWE as it’s the first time they are hosting WrestleMania over multiple nights as well as the first time the event is held in front of no audience. Additional history will be made that night when the NXT Women’s Championship will be defended for the first time on the ‘Mania card.
