They have a plan. WrestleMania is less than two weeks away and WWE seems to have the card entirely set. What matters now is selling as many tickets as possible, which is quite the trick for the whole situation. WWE does know how to make people care about their shows, but this year is especially difficult with the show taking place over two nights at AT&T Stadium. It might not be a one year challenge though.
Dave Meltzer appeared on this week’s Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast and talked about this year’s WrestleMania. Meltzer mentioned that the backstage feeling in WWE is that all future WrestleMania events will be held over the course of two nights. This year’s event is being seen as a test to see how tickets will sell for a two night WrestleMania, as WWE feels it is better than the seven hour, one night WrestleMania.
Opinion: This is something you kind of had to know was coming, as WWE rarely goes backwards with almost anything they do. Since just shortening the one night WrestleMania to less than seven hours seems to be off the table, this is about all they could come up with doing. There is something a bit less special about having the show take place over two nights, but at the end of the day, WWE is about making money so it does make sense to go in this direction.
