WrestleMania 36 is pretty different this year, and it goes beyond Coronavirus forcing the event into the WWE Performance Center where it’s being held in front of a big fat crowd of zero. It’s also taking place over two nights, with part one having gone down Saturday and part two airing tonight, April 5th, at 7PM EST.
The event streams live on the WWE Network and is also available via traditional pay-per-view to those who still buy things through their cable subscribers. Here’s the lineup for night two of WrestleMania 36:
WWE Championship Match – Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Drew McIntyre
Last Man Standing Match – Edge vs. Randy Orton
Firefly Funhouse Match – “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena
NXT Women’s Championship Match – Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
SmackDown Women’s Championship Match (Elimination Match) – Bayley (c) vs. Lacey Evans vs. Tamina vs. Naomi vs. Sasha Banks
Raw Tag Team Championship Match – The Street Profits (c) vs. Austin Theory and Angel Garza
Singles Match – Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley
Singles Match – Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler
Singles Match (Kickoff Show) – Natalya vs. Liv Morgan
You could certainly have a debate about which night is better, but one thing I think we can all agree on? Spreading the event out over two nights sure does help with viewer fatigue.

Still pretty odd: wrestlers wrestling without anyone watching. The crazy bright lights they keep on everything, just highlighting the fact that no one else is there. The echos of both the smack talk and just regular old smacks reverberating through the empty building. We have to say, the UFC does a better job of making you forget the world is in lockdown than the WWE just by blacking out the arena lights and putting the spotlight on the fighters.
