you don't wish - otherwise you would just remove "qiet" and "rhgb" from your boot configuration and add "rd.plymouth=0 plymouth.enable=0" followed by a "drcaut -f" and "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" as i do for 10 years now (for the first two parts)

You can also just hit the ESC key after the boot selection and it will show you the output.  That way, you see it when you're interested, and not if you aren't.

I also think it is far to basic and simplistic though, part of the current bad trend in my eyes. My young daughter has got bitten by this. Her machine was slow booting stuck with the bar 3/4 of the way through. So she reset it and it was the same, tried resetting at this stage again a few times. It was doing an fsck ...
Just a few lines of text description of what is going on below, the bar, by default with system configurable option to show the full works in the GUI, would be much better and educational. Even a bit of text saying "press the Escape key for more information" would be better.
