Drew McIntyre continues to make the media rounds to promote WrestleMania 36 where he’ll be challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
During an interview with Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, McIntyre was asked about WWE’s decision to split the show over the course of two nights.
WrestleMania 36 will be held on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center and other locations. With the outbreak of the coronavirus, WWE taped both nights of the show in advance.
According to McIntyre, he thinks WWE made the right call for not only this situation with the virus but to break the show up into two parts because the show is usually too long.
“Yeah. I think WrestleMania would be good over two days. Especially if we’re gonna do it the way we’ve done it for the past few years, because it’s too long (for one). But also, it’s once a year and the fans look forward to it, and generally they travel from all over the world.
To spread that over two days to give them something really big to look forward to, so you have that one night and you’re talking about it the next day, and you’re all excited like “Oh I want to do it again.” Then you will be able to do it again the next day and it’ll give you an even bigger memory when you’re going home.
I think this is the ideal year to start it and test it out. Spreading it out over two days gives people something to look forward to in these times, but going forward I really think it would be a good model so it’s not overkill.”
McIntyre continued by noting that despite as good as the matches will be, there is something with having too much wrestling even in the times that we’re living in now.
He stated that spreading it over two days is perfect because each time you give people something to look forward to each day.
McIntyre also talked about how he’s handling the coronavirus pandemic, his plans for the celebration should he win the title and more. You can read the entire interview here.
