With reports suggesting that Triple H wanted a “smaller” card for WrestleMania 39, more details of cutbacks have been revealed.
As previously reported, Triple H wants a small card for this year’s show, which means a lot of names that have been working on TV and live events will be hanging out backstage at Mania.
The report notes that there will not be a battle royal planned and only “a small handful of talent” are being used for this year’s WrestleMania.
In the new issue of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has highlighted where further savings are being made for the two-night event, writing:
“There are going to be cutbacks to the show, but not in ways that any fan would notice.
“Less personnel will be brought in and some of the foreign language announcers that had been brought in previously will be announcing via remote, which is also something that a lot of sports teams and networks are doing more of.
“The idea is to increase the profit margin of the show in getting the company ready for a sale.”
It was recently reported that WWE are set to meet potential buyers in April in preparation for first-round bids.
