Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre headlines this year's bizarre WrestleMania. 


Day one of WrestleMania is done, but the event isn't even close to over. Today, for the first time ever, is day two of the professional wrestling extravaganza. On day one of WrestleMania 36, Braun Strowman was crowned new Universal Champion, and The Undertaker defeated AJ Styles in an absolutely bonkers boneyard match. Today's show, which will be headlined by Brock Lesnar versus Drew McIntyre, promises to be just as spectacular (and hopefully insane). 

Originally scheduled for the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, this year's WrestleMania is taking place at WWE's Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Instead of the planned 60,000-plus attendance, there are no fans in the Performance Center. It's weird, but day one of WrestleMania went surprisingly well. It was a fun show. WrestleMania 36 is also available via the Fite service.

Now we're just counting down the minutes to rount two, which will surely be an absolute blast. Other than the WWE Championship match, Edge returns to wrestle his first singles match since 2011 against Randy Orton. Fan-favorite John Cena is also back, taking on "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Funhouse match. If day one's Boneyard match is anything to go by, the Cena match will be both incredibly absurd and fun.
