WrestleMania won't be held in front of a stadium full of people in Tampa, FL, but the show will go on. And this year, it's too big for one night.
WrestleMania 36 will be held on Saturday and Sunday with matches already taped at the WWE Performance Center and other locations. While the event might not look like the larger than life spectacle that fans have come to expect, John Morrison says there is still a buzz about the show among the performers.
“I mean, yeah, the atmosphere is a little bit different than an arena full of 100,000 people, but it’s still WrestleMania," he said. "It still has this vibe, it still feels like the most important show of the year. It still had that buzz backstage," Morrison told Muscle & Fitness.
Spending time at home during the coronavirus pandemic, Morrison, like so many others, has watched Netflix's "Tiger King" documentary. And he believes Joe Exotic was built for the wrestling business.
“I feel like I've watched every single action comedy movie out there, so now I feel like I've been just looking for good stories that I take longer [to watch]… We’re watching Dave, the Lil Dickie show on FX. It's new. It's a good one... Tiger King, I’m on episode five. Yeah, fascinating. In another life, that guy [Joe Exotic] could've been a wrestler," he said.
Exotic had ties to the wrestling business as he promoted NWA Texoma Wrestling a few years ago.
As for Morrison, he is scheduled to team with The Miz to defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles in a triple threat ladder match against New Day and The Usos at WrestleMania 36.
