What if WWE got rid of Wrestlemania

Recommended Posts

So i’m Here to propose a question to you all and as the title suggests it’s what if WWE got rid of Wrestlemania and replaced it with a different and new ppv now first off obviously this won’t ever happen as Wrestlemania is far too big of a show for them and all of wrestling for them to just can it so all of this is purely hypothetical however say if for whatever reason it did happen how much impact do you think it would have on wrestling as a whole and even what do you think the new ppv would be called or what would you like the name to be

Maybe we’d get to see more pyro at shows again because we barely get pyro at shows it’s annoying that we only get pyro for big paper per views and then what paper per view could replace WM? I’d have to go with money in the bank because we can’t put summerslam there because it’s in April but hey at least we get to see matches that we should see at WM.

I couldn't even think of an event to replace Wrestlemania. It is literally the most Iconic show in all of wrestling. It's not replaceable. Nothing could possibly replace it and draw as much. So I really don't have an answer to this question because nothing could ever replace Wrestlemania.

You could never replace Wrestlemania like storm said it wouldn't be a smart move at all the get rid of it because it's such a big name that casual wrestling fans just pay to watch it because of value it has and how iconic it is. But I guess that would mean SummerSlam would be built as biggest pay per view for them afterwards.

If WWE got rid of WrestleMania I feel like they’d lose a lot of money since it draws so much every year and keeps people engaged around that time. It’d make the royal rumble somewhat lose its touch since the goal is to win so you can headline Mania. It’d have a ripple effect and would put WWE on the decline in my opinion.

Are we saying that WWE wouldn't be able to attempt the same sized event with a different name? Even saying that i think the appeal is in the name Wrestlemania and if WWE decided to re-brand it as "Super Slamdown" or something insane like that it wouldn't draw as well. WWE doesn't tend to acknowledge the number of the event lately but the history of the event is in the appeal. I know of lapsed WWE fans who don't watch regularly who still make it a habitat of watching Wrestlemania together because it is that accessible.

Putting aside the effect on WWE that losing Wrestlemania would have we must think of the culture Wrestlemania has created around the event. Wrestlemania Week exists from the longevity and popularity of this mega event which benefits independent wrestling companies and the talent themselves greatly that time every year. Top stars getting multiple well paying bookings and being in the heart of a large gathering of fans is beneficial for them.

Getting rid of Wrestlemania would be like getting rid of the Superbowl in the NFL or the UEFA Champions League in football/soccer. Too iconic and with such a big impact you can never replace it.

Wrestlemania week in a way has become a sort of a Mega Wrestling Convention with many companies hosting shows during that week and around the area where the main show is.

(Watch AEW now say screw that next year and attempt to host a show opposite Wrestlemania, which would be dumb of them to do personally.)
