WWE changed around WrestleMania thanks to the pandemic, and that was a very nice change for fans. WrestleMania is now a two-night event, and they can now double their ticket revenue and enjoyment for fans at home. It seems that AEW might want to try this out as well.
NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom event is also a two-night show now. Tony Khan is well aware of this, and he would like to make that kind of multi-day money for his company.
While speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Tony Khan was asked if AEW could do something similar with a multi-day event. It seems that he is not opposed to this idea.
“We could do one event spanning a weekend and we could also do multiple events across a week. It’s something we’re considering, especially as we keep entering so many new debut markets. We’re looking forward to expanding and holding more huge events.”
WWE has a lot of things going on right now, and WrestleMania is in the rearview mirror. Pro wrestling fans might not expect another two-night event until, perhaps, NJPW holds their next Wrestle Kingdom. It seems that you can’t count out AEW, because Tony Khan might pop on that idea as well.
AEW has yet to announce a two-night event on their schedule. They have played arenas on multi-nights, but it was to tape Rampage on a separate night. Even the AEW Grand Slam event is a one-night show that they split up.
We’ll have to see what AEW does next, but a two-night event is certainly a possibility. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this, and every other story in the pro wrestling world.
