Following statements made by Tampa city officials on Thursday, WWE released a new statement regarding the possibility of WrestleMania 36 being canceled due to concerns over the spread of coronavirus. The event is scheduled to take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on April 5, though the state is currently in a state of emergency due to the virus outbreak, leading its governor to ask that no mass gathering events take place for the next 30 days. The statement read, "While we remain committed to hosting WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, April 5, we are putting contingency plans in place in the event that it is cancelled by government officials, civil authorities and/or local venues. "The health and safety of our fans, performers and employees are our top priorities and we are monitoring the situation closely with our partners and government officials in Tampa Bay," the statement continued.
