A new report has shed light on the future of WrestleMania and says that WWE is planning to keep their biggest event as a two-night affair.
WWE made one of the biggest changes to their showpiece event in 2020 when they held WrestleMania 36 over two nights in front of no fans as a result of the pandemic.
Since then, the event has continued to be held over two nights with WrestleMania 38 set to take place in the AT&T Stadium on the 2nd and 3rd of April.
Speaking on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer gave his thoughts on WrestleMania going forward and says the impression he gets is that WWE will keep the event running over two nights:
“I think WrestleMania is gonna be a 2-night thing going forward. I think was the first step to see will people buy and they bought in good enough numbers. Did it sell out first day, were the original numbers gigantic? No, but it’s fine. It’s a big stadium. It wasn’t gonna be easy to sell it out two straight days.”
“They haven’t announced 2 days for next year but I think it’s better to go for 2 days. It’s just the nature of what WrestleMania has become. There’s more money to be made and it’s better for the shows…”
“I talked to people there and they certainly gave me the impression that the idea is 2 days going forward. They always can change their mind based on what happens. I think that they all thought that a 7-hour show just doesn’t work. That’s more tiring than the 2 days.”
