Mark Madden said that somebody in the business told him they didn’t like the idea of two nights of WrestleMania because they don’t have two Super Bowls. Flair was asked to give his thoughts on that comparison:
“The Super Bowl is 4 hours long, or four and a half, and WrestleMania in New York was until 1:15 in the morning," Flair said. "I guess we’ll see how it goes, but for me, it’s two days, which I love. The more wrestling the better for me. I think two days of wrestling is great. If it gives more kids an opportunity to say they were at WrestleMania, which is a big, big deal because there are so many football players that say they’ve never been to the Super Bowl. They make all this money and have never been to a Super Bowl."
Flair continued, "I tell Ashley (Charlotte) all the time that this is so damn big to be main-eventing WrestleMania. I never did. I was the co-main event. If my career is considered great, good, or whatever, I never main-evented WrestleMania. I main-evented 10 Starrcades, which doesn’t mean anything compared to WrestleMania. In my mind it does, but it’s not the same.”
