The WWE Universe might have mixed reactions towards Vince McMahon going ahead with WrestleMania 36 despite the ongoing worldwide pandemic. However, we have to give props to the boss for giving the fans a reason to smile despite the tough times.
WrestleMania turned out to be a new experience for both the fans and the performers alike. The event is usually the biggest payday for the superstars, and the fans turn up in large numbers to witness the action. But WWE had to continue with this year's event in their performance center without a single fan in attendance.
Vince McMahon stuck to his motto "The Show Must Go On," and the superstars had to oblige. Despite happening inside an empty performance center, WrestleMania 36 didn't fail to create history. Both world titles changed hands at the event along with two other title changes, and apart from these, there are a few more stats the fans need to know about WrestleMania 36.
With that said, let's take a look at five crazy WrestleMania 36 stats that you should know about.
