Drew McIntyre Wants WWE WrestleMania To Remain A Two-Night Event
WrestleMania 36 & 37 have been presented across weekends
Drew McIntyre has given his personal thumbs up to WWE continuing to present WrestleMania across two nights going forward.
The last two WrestleManias - 36 and 37 - have been across a weekend due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In previous years, WrestleMania has stretched to being close to seven hours long, including the pre-show, with fans and critics noting significant burn-out during those shows.
However, the recent two-night spectacle across a weekend has been highly praised as it presents WWE's most iconic show in a more manageable way, and McIntyre is keen to see the 'Showcase Of The Immortals' continue in such a manner.
Talking to the Battleground Podcast, McIntyre said: “I like the two-night format. Obviously it was created because of the times we were living in and it gave everyone an entire weekend of WrestleMania when there was no other original content, at the time.
"I think it’s really cool to have a WrestleMania weekend, or SummerSlam weekend. As much as I love WrestleMania and be performing on it, I couldn’t imagine being in the crowd for up to seven hours at a time. It’s such a long event.
"I remember wrestling Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 35 and we were on a little later, and you could feel the crowd getting a little burnt out as the night goes on because they’ve been there for so long. If we broke it into two nights, we’ve got those shorter events and the crowd’s got their energy from start to finish. They can pick a night, they can pick both nights, or make a weekend out of it.
"So, I’m all about it, but again, I don’t understand the business behind it and what makes the most sense, so I can’t make that decision. But for me, personally, it gets a yes."
