UPDATE x 3: As previously reported here on eWn, the WWE WrestleMania 36 pay-per-view event will air over the course of two days. According to WWE.com, here is the schedule of matches:
Saturday (April 4th):
* WWE Championship Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar
* NXT Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley

* Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins
Sunday (April 5th):

As of now, each match is being advertised as taking place at the WWE Performance Center. That could obviously change. Also, other matches are likely going to take place, including Edge vs. Randy Orton, but the dates and locations of those haven’t been announced as of this writing.
UPDATE x 2: We reported earlier this evening here on eWn that WrestleMania 36 would take place over the course of two nights. You can see our original report below.
