WWE WrestleMania 40 Date: Is The Show Really Two Nights?

WWE WrestleMania 40 is set to be the biggest show of the calendar year for the company, but is it really split over two nights?

To answer that question quickly, yes, the WrestleMania 40 date is indeed taking place over two nights on Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th, but it isn’t unprecedented.

‘Mania has been a two-night event for quite some time, with the show first being split in half at WrestleMania 36, which took place in an empty WWE Performance Center due to the global pandemic.

Since then, the company has taken the opportunity to sell tickets to two nights of their biggest event, meaning that they can essentially double the gate if they can draw both nights.

WrestleMania 40 Date: How many WrestleMania shows have been over two nights?

As of writing, there have been four WrestleMania events that have taken place over two nights, with WrestleMania 40 set to be the fifth.

The advantage of having two nights is that more performers can get featured on the cards, and it gives the opportunity to have more than one blockbuster main event.

This year, WrestleMania XL will see The Rock and Roman Reigns taking on Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes on Night 1, followed by Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes on Night 2 for the WWE Undisputed Championship.

In years past, WWE has taken the opportunity to give the winner of the Men’s Royal Rumble and the winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble the chance to headline each night, but the stature of the Bloodline feud with Cody Rhodes has been such that it is getting both coveted positions.
