Default How long will WrestleMania XXX be?

Wondering if there's any official word on how long Wrestlemania XXX will be? The last anniversary this big was Wrestlemania XX and that was a 5 hour pay-per-view. Not sure how Mania XX sold so if that was negative then I'm sure they'd not want to do it again but if it was a good buy-rate then why not? It'd certainly be a way to get people on the card and allow for the big matches to get the time they need.

Im really hoping for 5 hours. Although it may not float well with the casuals having to sit for 5 hours, it would be awesome for a huge wrestling fan like myself.

True, but I'm expecting quite a bit of the filler shit they put in last year with all the bigging themselves up whilst a massive audience is watching. Plus they did have to cut some stuff out last year.

I just think there's probably gonna be a fair number of high profile matches out of Cena/Brock/Taker/Punk/Bryan/Batista/HHH/Orton/Jericho (if he's back) that are gonna require at least 15 minutes.

Plus then you have the likes of The Shield (possible triple threat) & The Wyatts that have got to fit somewhere. I reckon a Rhodes Bro's split is on the cards to give them a 1-on-1. Possible Hulk Hogan segment? Is RVD gonna fit on anywhere?

There's quite a bit to get through this year.

They have too much talent for four hours actually

Cena, Punk, Bryan, HHH, Batista, Orton, Lesnar, Taker, ADR, Sheamus, Show, Henry, Jericho, RVD, Shield, Wyatts

Also Hogan is likely coming back in some role, chances of HBK & Goldberg too in the air

Taker/Lesnar
Cena/Orton/Batista
Punk/HHH
Bryan/Wyatt
Ambrose/Rollens/Reigns
Rhodes/Goldust
Jericho/ADR
Sheamus/Henry
RVD/Kane
Show/Ryback

Only one midcard match really

This roster has PLENTY of talent. Punk, Bryan, Sheamus, Cena, Reigns, Orton, Batista, Brock, Taker, Trips, Del Rio, Wyatts, Ambrose, Rollins, Rhodes, Show, Henry, Goldust, Ryback, the tag teams etc. etc. THEN there's the possible Hogan, Jericho, Goldberg, RVD, etc.

I'd say go for 5 hours, but maybe do a 20 minute intermission so the crowd can catch their breath.

My ticket says 5:30, which is central time. So it's the original start time of 6:30 preshow, 7 pm start until 11. Now, unless they decide to go with a midnight end time, it seems like it will be the usual four hours.

Think id rather no intermission, kinda breaks it all up and gets rid of the hype for me. As im coming all the way from Newcastle, Australia, id love a 5 hour event.

feels weird that a axxess session goes as long as the bigger show that weekend. 4 Hours is loooong, but when you go there live, you don't want it to end.

I'm afraid of two things for this WrestleMania.

1) A poorly booked card.
2) A well booked card with bad time management.

Odds of one of them happening are quite high in my opinion.


WrestleMania XXVI could've been much better had they tweaked a few things. They could've cut 10min off the Bret-Vince match/segment and given that time to Punk-Mysterio. They also could've given Batista-Cena about 5 more minutes as well.


If the card is poorly booked, then it doesn't matter how long the show is. It'll suck. If the card is stacked with big matches, then let's hope they cut all the filler and backstage crap and give those matches the time that is necessary to allow for proper storytelling and maybe grow into possible classics.

A good vast majority of the hypothetical cards that are being posted on WF still lack a lot of talent.

Hypothetical card:
Triple H vs CM Punk
The Undertaker vs Daniel Bryan
John Cena vs Bray Wyatt
Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton
Reigns vs Ambrose vs Rollins
Cody Rhodes vs Goldust
AJ Lee vs another diva

Okay, that's good and all... but where are guys like Rey Mysterio, Big Show, Mark Henry, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, or any of the tag teams (Usos, Real Americans, PTP). Heck, that's not even including Batista nor a possible Jericho or Sheamus return. Now imagine if they got HBK or Goldberg to commit? What about (non-wrestling) segments for Hulk Hogan? Now we're dealing with a big time crunch.

Any card with 4 big matches at the top (which is pretty much a given due to the names that are confirmed for the event) is going to need at LEAST 2 hours. Now, the question becomes whether you're able to fit the rest of the card in the remaining 2 hours without sacrificing quality?
