WrestleMania 36 wound up being a two-night event back in early April after WWE moved the event from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa to the empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando amid the coronavirus pandemic. The show was received fairly-well overall, thanks in large part to neither night being an eight-hour marathon like the last few WrestleMania events. By all indications next year's WrestleMania, which is scheduled for SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California (at least for now) on March 28, 2021, will go back to being one night. But Triple H argued on this week's After The Bell podcast that WWE should consider keeping WrestleMania as a two-night show going forward.
"I think it was much more enjoyable than the 8 hour extravaganza. I think at some point that's probably what it should be," he explained. "It's just become so big...it started out as a concert that ended up being a festival, and it's this week-long thing. 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...that's a major shift and that doesn't come easy," he added.
