WrestleMania 40 proved to be one of the most enthralling and successful endeavors for the global juggernaut of wrestling, with WWE smashing records and generating staggering business for the company.

The event witnessed title reigns coming to an end, memorable moments created like Cody Rhodes winning the Undisputed WWE title and The Rock’s return to in-ring action, surprise appearances by WWE legends like John Cena and The Undertaker, and history created at The Show of Shows.

However, the show’s grand presentation had its fair share of budget cuts as per the new management in charge. According to PWInsider, WrestleMania 40 featured a reduction in pyrotechnics compared to previous editions, attributed to cost-cutting measures implemented by Endeavor. Discussions even circulated about the possibility of significantly scaling back pyrotechnic displays for the event.

“WrestleMania XL saw less pyro than previous years due to cutbacks under Endeavor. There was talk of even doing far less pyro than what was used.”


The conclusion of The Showcase of the Immortals ushered WWE into a new era with a permanent change that will see small production stages due to the WWE shows having sellouts and wanting to accommodate the maximum audience for their live televised programming.

Despite less pyrotechnics used in their presentation, WrestleMania 40 will be etched in the history books as one of the most successful editions in the history books of WWE forever.
