Why WrestleMania Is Two Days, Matt Hardy & Brodie Lee’s AEW Debut

The decision to split WrestleMania 36 is in hopes of limiting the number of people inside the WWE PC. Also, Matt Hardy & Brodie Lee debuted for AEW.

Why WrestleMania 36 Is Two Days

It was confirmed and reported here on WrestleNewz that WrestleMania 36 will indeed take place, just from the WWE Performance Center and without an audience.

And it will also take place over two days as a way to keep the number of people inside to a minimum. With the CDC still asking to limit gatherings to 50-or-less, this allows the WWE to try and do that.

The event is scheduled for April 4 and April 5 with recently-signed and former NFL standout Rob Gronkowski serving as host. Several bouts remain confirmed including Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE title, Goldberg defending the Universal belt against Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch putting her women’s ttile on the line vs. Shayna Baszler and John Cena returning to face “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.

More information is expected to be announced on SmackDown this Friday on FOX.

Despite restrictions due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), All Elite Wrestling gave fans around the world something to talk about on AEW: Dynamite Wednesday.

Matt Hardy, long-rumored to be joining the promotion after his days with the WWE were numbered, made his debut at the close of the show.

While Chris Jericho sang the praise of himself and the Inner Circle, a drone known as Vanguard 1 flew into the ring. Matt Jackson said he made a call to even the odds after the Inner Circle took out Nick Jackson.

Hardy appeared from the rafters, doing his customary “delete” taunt as the show faded to black. It has been confirmed that the Blood and Guts match coming up between the Inner Circle and The Elite will feature Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Ortiz and Santana against Cody, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Hardy.

There has been no confirmation for when the match will take place after AEW officials canceled the planned card for New Jersey next week.

Hardy concluded his latest WWE run on March 1. The 45-year-old has held 14 tag team titles over the years in WWF, WWE, Ring of Honor, WCW and TNA.

Brodie Lee Makes Stunning Entrance

Reason For Luke Harper's Release Request Revealed

Dynamite also featured the AEW debut of Brodie Lee, the wrestler formerly known as Luke Harper in the WWE. Lee was revealed as the Dark Order’s Exalted One.

Lee led a group that attacked Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian, leaving them down and out.

The 40-year-old Lee was released by the WWE in December after requesting to be let go. He held the NXT tag team titles with Erick Rowan, the SmackDown belts with Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and Rowan, and is a former Intercontinental champion.
