Count Triple H among those who prefer WrestleMania to be on two nights.
“The Game” was on this week’s After the Bell podcast and Corey Graves and the WWE executive admitted that he thinks WrestleMania should take place over two nights going forward.
Well, my opinion is my opinion, but I think it was much more enjoyable than the eight-hour extravaganza. I think at some point that is probably what it should be. It’s just become so big that it’s almost — when you think about it in a way — it started out as a concert that ended up being a festival. And it’s this week-long thing. When you think about it in that manner now, Thursday would have been Hall of Fame. Friday was SmackDown. Saturday was going to be TakeOver. Sunday would’ve been WrestleMania. Monday would’ve been Raw. It’s a week-long festival, and I think that big main stage attraction needs to be those two nights and it be this weekend of events. And I do think that’s probably a change that out of chaos comes the genius, and maybe that is the genius of it. And I know there’s been people saying that for a period of time, but that’s a major shift and that doesn’t come easy.
WWE changed up last month’s WrestleMania 36 and pushed it over two nights due to the coronavirus pandemic. The idea was something that has been previously talked about and Triple H is definitely among those who would like to see it again rather than a super-sized show on one night.
He also talked about the now infamous Boneyard match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles including everything that went into it but he didn’t necessarily agree with some fans who believe the “Dead Man” could extend his career with matches like this.
I saw a lot of people afterwards saying ‘God, Taker could go forever in these kinds of format because there’s no physicality’. I’m like, dude, AJ was flying around on the dirt, on the hard ground with rocks. They were beating the tar out of each other, and it was a long shoot.
