Meltzer is reporting that WrestleMania 35 is slated to start at 5:30 P.M. EST. This would likely follow a pre-show that lasts two hours, we assume.
Meltzer claims that the current plan for the show would mean WrestleMania won’t wrap up at 11 P.M. as expected by many. Rather, it may continue through the night into the early hours of the morning.
WWE is perfectly fine to do this for a number of reasons. As we’ve reported this week, WWE is changing the lengths of their PPVs and have informed international partners of this. Additionally, the show will primarily be watched on the WWE Network. This means unlike with Raw or SmackDown, WWE has no limit to how long their content is.
Depending on how you look at it, WrestleMania could very well exceed 6 or 7 hours, potentially even excluding the two-hour pre-show that the event will have.
The one big, obvious problem here is that people in the arena will grow tired very quickly as they did this past WrestleMania. The longer WWE makes the show, the more likely it is that people will walk out before the main event.
What are your thoughts and opinions? Would you like or dislike a longer WrestleMania?
