• Backstage News On WrestleMania 38 & The Future Of WrestleMania
WWE was forced to do WrestleMania 36 at the Performance Center in front of 0 fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To make the event seem somewhat special, WWE turned WrestleMania into a two-night event for the first time ever in 2020.
WWE did the two-night thing again this year, but the only difference was that WrestleMania 37 took place with fans in attendance.
According to Fightful Select, two-night WrestleManias are a hit with backstage staff and wrestlers. Also, the fact that fans weren’t tired by the time of the main event was also seen as a plus.
Many believe that the reason WWE didn’t announce a date for WrestleMania 38 is because they are still considering the idea of doing a two-night event again.
“It was also speculated among talent that WWE avoiding the announcement of a certain date for 2022 WrestleMania has the company considering continuing the two night method.”
If the WWE can pull huge number of fans for both nights of WrestleMania (which would be the 70-80,000 number), then they really have no reason to go back to doing one night WrestleManias again, as the ticket sales literally double with a two-night event.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
