WrestleMania weekend is no longer exclusive to WWE according to Jay Lethal.
Every year, WrestleMania weekend becomes a bigger and bigger spectacle with every Independent company under the sun running a show in or near the WrestleMania host city. This year is the biggest WrestleMania weekend ever with ROH and NJPW teaming up to run G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden the night before WrestleMania 35.
Speaking to CBS Sports, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal stated that "WrestleMania weekend" is no longer a thing and it has now become "Wrestling weekend."
"Not to take anything away from any company and how they are built throughout the years, but it really has seemed to be 'Wrestling Weekend,' not so much 'WrestleMania Weekend' because there has always been so many shows surrounding the big event," said Lethal. "The way we see it is this is wrestling at its finest and wrestling is in a boom period right now. Because of this boom period, things that we thought were impossible -- including another company running at Madison Square Garden, let alone selling it out -- are now possible. Walls in this wrestling world that were up are now being broken down because of this boom period. What a fantastic time to be a professional wrestler and what a fantastic time to be a professional wrestling fan. It's an amazing time for wrestling right now."
Lethal is currently scheduled to be the co-headliner at ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard as he'll defend the ROH World Title in a triple threat ladder match against Matt Taven and Marty Scurll.
