Speculation about WWE Wrestlemania as a two-night event being a permanent change
During the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed WWE Wrestlemania being a two-night event moving forward…
“I think WrestleMania is gonna be a 2-night thing going forward,” Meltzer said. “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 7-hour show just doesn’t work. That’s more tiring than the 2 days.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
