A new report has claimed that WWE intends to continue holding WrestleMania as a two-night spectacular.
Besides being forced to hold shows in front of no fans, the biggest change WWE made during the COVID-19 pandemic was to hold WrestleMania 36 across two nights.
They repeated the idea for WrestleMania 37, this time with a crowd in attendance, and this year is set to be no different as the 38th edition of ‘The Showcase Of The Immortals’ takes place in the AT&T Stadium on April 2nd and 3rd.
On the latest edition of the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer discussed plans for WrestleMania going forward and said that people in WWE give the impression that they will keep the event running over two nights in future.
“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.”
