This year’s edition of The Showcase of the Immortals will be the first time ever the event will span across multiple days.

The annual extravaganza was due to take place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay on April 5 until the coronavirus outbreak forced it off.

This week the historic announcement was made that WrestleMania 36 will now be hosted by NFL legend Rob Gronkowski over two nights in various closed set locations over Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 of April.

But WWE may have to think outside of the box again to make sure their champion can compete.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the border between the United States and Canada has been shut down. 

However, The Beast, who has dual citizenship, lives in Saskatchewan, Canada – which may cause major implications.

People are permitted to cross the border but only for “essential business”.

But fellow WWE stars The Singh Brothers, who live in Vancouver, have already expressed their concerns about being able to get to work.

And that could now be the case for the former UFC Heavyweight champ and his prospects of competing at ‘Mania.
