Promotions all over the world have gone from strength to strength and increased in popularity.

With growing popularity, there is an increase in demand for shows. With that, some shows, like tournaments are too large to be contained to just one night, introducing “wrestling weekenders”.

We discuss weekend-long shows such as: Fight Club: PRO’s Dream Tag Team Invitational (DTTI) – held over 3 nights. Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles (BOLA) – held over 3 nights. Progress’ Super Strong Style 16 (SSS16) – held over 3 nights. ICW’s Shug’s Hoose Party – held over 2 nights

Recently, wrestling giants, NJPW and WWE have gone in the weekend-long event direction, with their biggest shows Wrestle Kingdom and Wrestlemania taking place over 2 days, instead of one.

NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 14 event saw a dedication to the retirement of Japanese wrestling legend Jushin Thunder Liger and the highly anticipated “Double Gold Dash” where they planned to see IWGP Heavyweight champion take on the IWGP Intercontinental champion in a title for title extravaganza.

After COVID-19 took the world hostage, WWE chose to move their biggest show of the year to the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando and splitting their over the top show to two days.

The panel discusses the highs and lows of experiencing the change in direction of demand for wrestling shows as well as discussing events or companies that could benefit from increasing their product to provide a weekend-long experience.
