WWE is always looking to change things up for the betterment of fans and that includes their Premium Live Events as well. By the looks of it, WrestleMania might be changed for good.
Ever since WrestleMania 36 in 2020, the Show of Shows has been held on two consecutive days. The show was shifted from Raymond James Stadium to the Performance Center.
The company held WrestleMania 37 last year on back to back days as well. While speaking on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer stated that this year’s WrestleMania is a test to see if the 2-day WrestleMania format can do well with ticket sales considering there are no restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I think WrestleMania is gonna be a two-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.
I talked to people there and they certainly gave me the impression that the idea is two days going forward. They always can change their mind based on what happens. I think that they all thought that seven-hour show just doesn’t work. That’s more tiring than the two days.”
We will have to wait and see whether WrestleMania will become a two-day event from now on or not. In the end, WWE will do what’s best for business and that is unlikely to ever change.
