As Wrestlemania season rolls on, 2020 is proving to be the strangest year ever for WWE’s biggest annual show. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, it was previously revealed that Wrestlemania 36 wouldnot take place at Tampa, Florida’s Raymond James Stadium–opting instead for it to be broadcast from WWE’s Performance Center with no audience–and that this year’s Wrestlemania will take place over two nights, rather than one.
Now comes the news that Wrestlemania is heading to ESPN. At least, older Wrestlemanias are. WWE and ESPN have announced a series of encore presentations of the show, which will air on ESPN and stream via the network’s app.
On Sunday, March 22, Wrestlemania 30 will air on the network. That installment of the event featured Daniel Bryan, Batista, and Randy Orton battling over the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event. It’s also the show where Brock Lesnar ended The Undertaker’s undefeated streak.
On March 29, Wrestlemania 32 will air. That show saw Shane McMahon return to fight The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match, while Roman Reigns and Triple H battled for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Lastly, on April 5, Wrestlemania 35 will air. This is the 2019 installment of the event, which saw Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda Rousey face off on the main event for the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships. This was the first time women main evented Wrestlemania. This particular encore presentation will begin at 3 PM ET, before the second night of Wrestlemania 36 kicks off on the WWE Network.
