How To Watch Wrestlemania 38 On Peacock
The biggest wrestling event of the year, Wrestlemania 38 is almost here. And here’s how you can watch Wrestlemania 38, exclusively on Peacock.
Once again, the WWE has split Wrestlemania 38 into two nights. So it’ll take place on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3. It’s expected to be around three to four hours each night. Which makes Wrestlemania a lot easier to watch, then having it start at 6PM and last until almost 1AM, like it has in the past. It’s something that many fans hope WWE continues to do in the future.
Wrestlemania 38 will be taking place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be full capacity, as many of WWE’s shows have been since last summer. AT&T Stadium held Wrestlemania 32 in 2016, which had over 100,000 people attend. And it’s likely going to be the same thing this year, but doubled since there’s two nights.
When does Wrestlemania 38 start?
Both nights of Wrestlemania 38 will start at 8PM ET/5PM PT. And should conclude around 11PM ET/8PM PT, there’s really no set time limit for either night of Wrestlemania 38, so it could go on much longer. There will be a pre-show happening an hour ahead of kickoff, at 7PM ET/4PM PT on each night of Wrestlemania 38.
That is much better than having a single seven hour long Wrestlemania, as we had before COVID.
And with Smackdown happening on Friday night and Raw on Monday, that’s four straight days of wrestling. Which is a dream for any wrestling fan out there. This Friday’s edition of Smackdown is being called “Wrestlemania Smackdown” and there are some Wrestlemania matches happening on Smackdown this Friday. Like the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Following Smackdown, is the Hall of Fame ceremony that will see The Undertaker go into the hall of fame in his home state of Texas (he’s from Houston, not Dallas).
Wrestlemania 38 match card
As always, the card is subject to change. And since this is a two-day event, it’s possible that matches could be moved from one day to the other. However these are the announced matches and days for each match.
Seth “Freaking” Rollins will have a match at Wrestlemania 38, after meeting with the company’s Chairman of the Board, Vince McMahon at headquarters. However, we do not know his opponent or which day he will have his match. Considering how light the card is for day 2, we expect it to be on Sunday. There’s also plenty of rumors of Rollins facing a returning Cody Rhodes at Wrestlemania. WWE themselves have been hinting at it too. Rhodes was one of the founding members of AEW and then decided not to renew his contract with AEW and left in February. Reportedly, he signed with WWE three weeks ago, but has not really shown up on WWE TV just yet. WWE is likely looking to use this as a massive surprise at the event itself. A founding member of a competing company, jumping ship to WWE is a big deal, giving Monday Night Wars from the ’90s vibes.
Another rumors match is Finn Balor (c) vs Damian Priest for the United States Championship. As of this writing, following the Wrestlemania Raw on March 28, that match has not been made official. There is still a chance that something happens at Smackdown on Friday, or some kind of backstage angle at Wrestlemania this weekend to make this match actually take place. But as of right now, it’s not happening.
