Two Wrestlemanias in the same year?

Jul 10, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

WWE made a major splash in 2018, holding two Royal Rumble events in the same year for the first time ever. The first came in its usual spot in January. The second was the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia that took place in April.

According to a new report, this could be a format that WWE is looking to do for Wrestlemania.

This news comes from Jon Fisher of BarnBurner.ca. According to Fisher, WWE is planning on holding two WrestleMania events in one year before 2020.
The report says that there isn’t a definite name for the second event just yet but it will be similar to the Royal Rumble and Greatest Royal Rumble idea. The report says that the first event will take place in April and the second will happen in October.

There are reportedly three cities being discussed to host the second event: Saudi Arabia, London, and Australia.

Take with a grain of salt for now. WWE is coming into some big money from their new television deals in 2019 which certainly makes things interesting.

    Saudi Arabia and Australia are countries, not states.

    London for any PPV would be amazing.

    @Terror WWE tried that idea in the late 90’s and early 2000’s with PPV’s that were available only in England and it was an epic failure, with the WWE losing money on every single PPV production cost wise.

    With how bad the product has been the last month, I don’t think the best idea is to create more product.

    I don’t get it to be honest. You can call any show anything you want. Like last year with that starrcade bs, that was just a house show. And a boring one at that. No one in their right mind is going to buy into this as “another” WrestleMania, just as no one bought in to the second Royal rumble. It didn’t mean anything, the winner didn’t get a title shot, and the matches barely had any meaning. In my opinion, they could call every show WrestleMania, all it’s going to do is hurt the “real” version in April.
