Double up? WrestleMania has been the biggest wrestling event in the world for a very long time now and there is little reason to believe that it is going to change. Above all else, the show has been the most important night of the wrestling year since 1985. However, the last two editions have been split over two different nights. So how did the wrestlers feel about that idea?
According to Fightful Select, several WWE wrestlers prefer the two night format for WrestleMania as opposed to the one night version. One of the biggest reasons was the lack of the crowd being burned out, which was the case at the end of WrestleMania 35 at the end of its seven and a half hour run time. WWE’s current plan is to run next year’s WrestleMania 38 over one night instead of two, though the plan could still change.
WrestleMania 36 and WrestleMania 37 were held over two nights, with the former in the empty Performance Center and the latter being in the reduced capacity Raymond James Stadium. WrestleMania 38 is scheduled for AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which is the same location as WrestleMania 32. So far WWE has only announced that the show will take place in April 2022 with no specific date given.
There are two different ways. Check out the two nights and one night formats:
Opinion: The more I think about this, the less reason there is to keep it at one night. I have always liked the idea of a one night event because it makes things feel a bit more prestigious, but other than that, it kind of makes a lot more sense to put the event over two nights. It is clear that WWE is not going to do anything to pick up the pace or lower the pretty ridiculous amount of matches, so this is about as good as it is going to get.
Should the show always be two nights? How many matches should be included? Let us know in the comments below.
