It turns out that WWE had plans for a special entrance involving a former champion at WrestleMania 36. Unfortunately, this was just of many things planned for the biggest event of the year for WWE to be nixed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Dave Meltzer had a note in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that stated Bray Wyatt, who would’ve been portraying his alter-ego The Fiend” at the show, would’ve had a live musical performance.
Code Orange, the band that recorded Wyatt’s theme song, has stated recently that “they were in talks to play Wyatt’s music at WrestleMania until everything changed.”
Wyatt wrestled John Cena in the Firefly Fun House Match at WrestleMania 36 – Night 2 in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center on the WWE Network.
If WWE didn’t have to move the show from Tampa, Florida at a stadium to the Performance Center in Orlando, it’s likely that this contest would’ve been a singles match.
Many fans have praised WWE and those involved in the contest due to its cinematic type presentation as it was a highlight of the show in addition to the other cinematic contest involving The Undertaker and AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match that headlined the first event.
