WWE announced Thursday that it's preparing contingency plans for Wrestlemania 36, which is set for next month in Tampa, Florida.

A statement from the company says it remains committed to hosting the biggest wrestling event of the year in Tampa on April 5th, but it's preparing contingency plans in the event it's cancelled.  

The coronavirus has already affected the Friday Night Smackdown, which was originally to be held in front of thousands of fans in Detroit tonight.

Instead, it will be held at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, with no audience.  Fans can still see it on TV.
