• Future Of WrestleMania Revealed
When WWE was forced to move WrestleMania 36 from the Raymond James Stadium to the Performance Center with 0 fans in attendance, WWE decided to make it a 2-night event.
WrestleMania 37 was also a 2-night event, but with limited capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
WrestleMania 38 will be the first full-capacity WrestleMania since 2019.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE isn’t planning to move back to single night WrestleManias, as the 2-nights events are shorter, more enjoyable in terms of time and they also end up making more money:
“WrestleMania is gonna be a 2-night thing going forward. The first step was 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.
I talked to people there and they certainly gave me the impression that the idea is two 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 two days.”
