WrestleMania 38 was confirmed as a two-night event when WWE released their upcoming schedule yesterday. This was well-received in the locker room, because many prefer the two-night set-up. It appears that the company is going to carry on with that same idea even after the pandemic.

Many have wondered, for years, why WWE never borrowed from NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom set-up to go with two-night events. The pandemic caused WWE to take that idea and now they are running with it.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about WWE’s upcoming schedule and how the two-night WrestleMania in Dallas likely means the company will carry on with that idea for all future WrestleMania events.

They are going to do a discount if you buy both shows. I would presume also that means all WrestleManias going forward, including Hollywood the year after, will be two-night affairs. That makes sense.

It was also noted that there are a ton of benefits to running a two-night WrestleMania event. That includes bonus ticket sales, merch money, and it also ensures that fans aren’t worn out during a six-hour event. It might be a bit grueling to attend two night’s worth of shows, but the benefits greatly outweigh the drawbacks in this situation.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
