    I know that Wii U Gamepad uses Wifi to communicate with the Wii U, and for Wii U to send video signal to Wii U Gamepad.

    Is it possible for the Wii U to send out one video signal, and multiple Gamepads can receive that same signal without cut framerate? Or the Wifi protocol won't allow that?

    There's a way to sync 2 gamepads with custom-made homebrew app but you would experience:
    1. Screen Tearing
    2. Signal Dropout
    3. Performance Drop
    4. Weak connection
    You could try but Wii U naturally won't let you pair 2 gamepads at the same time.

    Didn't Nintendo planned on enabling Support for 2 gamepads?

    Yes they did, but it seems that the idea was discarded, maybe because of performance issues.
