Wrestlemania 36

The meaning of «wrestlemania 36»

WrestleMania 36 was the 36th annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw, SmackDown, and NXT brand divisions— the first to promote the NXT brand. It was filmed on March 25 and 26, 2020 and broadcast as a two-night event on April 4 and 5, marking the first time the event was broadcast over two nights as well as aired on tape delay. On pay-per-view, the two productions were sold as individual shows, with both available as a package deal.

The event was originally scheduled to take place solely on April 5, 2020, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and was to air live. In mid-March, all WWE programming was relocated to the WWE Performance Center training facility in Orlando due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with no audience and only essential staff present. This gives WrestleMania 36 the distinction of being the only edition of the event not to feature a live crowd. The majority of the PPV's matches were pre-recorded at the Performance Center between March 25 and 26. Taking advantage of the format, two cinematic matches — a "Boneyard match" and a "Firefly Fun House match" — were filmed off-site in an atypical, cinematic style. In late-August, Florida lifted restrictions on fan attendance at sporting events, and 2021's WrestleMania 37 was moved to Raymond James Stadium; WrestleMania 37 in turn adopted much of the pirate-themed marketing originally used for WrestleMania 36, including a similar logo.

The card comprised eighteen matches which were divided between the two nights, including one match on each night's Kickoff pre-show and a dark match on the second night. In the main event for Part 1, The Undertaker, partly returning to his "American Bad Ass" character for the first time in over 16 years, defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard match, which was later revealed to be Undertaker's final match, while in the final match from the Performance Center, Braun Strowman defeated Goldberg to win the Universal Championship. In other prominent matches, Becky Lynch defeated Shayna Baszler to retain the Raw Women's Championship, and Kevin Owens defeated Seth Rollins in a No Disqualification match. In the main event for Part 2, Drew McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship, after which, McIntyre retained the title in an impromptu dark match against Big Show (which was shown on the April 6 episode of Raw). In the penultimate match, "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt defeated John Cena in a Firefly Fun House match. In other prominent matches, Charlotte Flair defeated Rhea Ripley to win the NXT Women's Championship for a second time in the opening bout, which was the first time an NXT championship was defended at the event, Edge defeated Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match, which was Edge's first singles match since April 2011, and Otis defeated Dolph Ziggler.

WrestleMania 36 received mostly positive reactions from fans and critics. While it was noted that the event suffered from the absence of a live audience and a poor lead-up (partly due to a number of wrestlers being pulled from the event shortly before its filming, mostly in relation to the pandemic, including Roman Reigns, The Miz, Andrade, and Dana Brooke, all of whom were slated to defend or challenge for championships), most felt that WWE exceeded expectations. The Boneyard and Firefly Fun House matches were singled out as highlights due to their uniqueness and over-the-top tone, while the male world title matches were criticized for their short lengths and overuse of finishing moves.
