WWE reportedly looking to make a permanent change for the future of WrestleMania shows. It seems that company wants all the upcoming WrestleMania events to be two-night show.

The first two-night WrestleMania event first happened in 2020, when WrestleMania 36 shifted from Raymond James Stadium to the Performance Center. Following year, WWE also announced two night WrestleMania event, although it had a limited capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the latest episode of the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer reported that WrestleMania 38 was a test to see if the event does well with ticket sales with a two-night format as it’s the first WrestleMania without any restrictions due to the pandemic.
“I think WrestleMania is gonna be a two-night thing going forward. I think was the first step 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.” (H/T – WrestlingNews)
Meltzer further stated that it’s better to go for a two-day event as they can more money with new format. He spoke to people in WWE, who indicated this would be the idea in the future, and The Grandest Stage of Them All will continue to take place across Saturday and Sunday.
“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 seven-hour show just doesn’t work. That’s more tiring than the two days.”
