On Sunday, April 5, 2020, WWE will present its biggest event of the year with WrestleMania 36, and huge plans are already being put in place for the show. Even though 2019 has yet to end, and there is still one more pay-per-view, which airs this weekend, the promotion is already putting things together for WrestleMania in Tampa. Rumors are flying that all three brands will be represented at the biggest wrestling event of the year.
With the brand separation being much more defined since Friday Night SmackDown moved to Fox, WWE is going to make sure there is full inclusion for all its superstars. Not only will the blue brand have proper representation at WrestleMania 36, but Monday Night Raw is going to be present too.
Now, there is speculation that the third main brand, NXT, will have a presence there as well.
WrestleMania 36 is going to take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Matches featuring superstars from both Raw and SmackDown will fill the card, but WrestleVotes is reporting that NXT is going to have some kind of presence there too.
It’s not known if there will be a match, or yellow brand superstars involved in a battle royal, or if they will just make appearances at the show. Of course, there is a lot of time to go before the PPV, but it seems as if all three brands will be in Florida in April of 2020.
Heard from a well placed source, as of now, NXT will have a role at WrestleMania. Not talking about TakeOver, but on the actual Mania card. No details as to who or what, but an NXT presence will be felt at Raymond James Stadium.

Since it is only December, there is no way of telling what is going to happen at WrestleMania 36. If the rumors end up coming true and NXT is a part of the PPV, that is likely going to be because of this year’s Survivor Series.
Once NXT joined the main roster in mid-September, it was announced they would be a part of Survivor Series. The build up leading to the pay-per-view was well done, and fans loved seeing all three shows battle it out for brand supremacy.
It has already been confirmed that NXT will have a presence at the Royal Rumble in April, and it appears the trend will continue with other big WWE events. This presence in April means at the actual PPV and not just NXT TakeOver: Tampa.
WWE has made it a point to make Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, and NXT as equal as possible on the main roster. The three brands are great in their own ways, and that is why they will all be present in the spotlight at WrestleMania 36.
