Gone are the days of seven-hour WrestleMania shows, at least for now. Like last year, this WrestleMania will be spread across two nights. Night one will take place on April 10, 2021, and night two the following day on April 11, 2021. Night one will be the first WWE show to take place in front of actual fans for more than a year. Both nights will air live on the WWE Network starting at 7 pm EST on both Saturday and Sunday. Details regarding the kickoff show on both nights are yet to be announced, but they will be at least an hour, possibly two.
When is WrestleMania 37?
This year’s WrestleMania is currently scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 10th and Sunday, April 11th and will emanate from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The show had originally been scheduled as WrestleMania Hollywood, taking place at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on March 28th – but the switch to Florida, which was reported by Inside The Ropes in October, was confirmed on January 16th by WWE.
The “main show” will begin at midnight in the UK. However, there will be a ‘Kickoff’ show on for two hours first from 10 pm, which will be shown for FREE on WWE’s YouTube channel, as well as Facebook and Twitter, according to Itrwrestling.
How to Watch Wrestlemania 37 on NBC Peacock TV
Because of the deal between NBC and WWE, Wrestlemania 37 will be streamed exclusively through Peacock. While WWE Network lives on, for the time being, Peacock will be the only place to catch live and archived wrestling shows after the company’s own-branded streaming platform is officially shut down on April 4. The deal between the two companies is set to start March 18, at which point WWE will begin migrating paying subscribers over to Peacock.
As we stated previously, Wrestlemania 37 is a two-night event, starting with the first half on April 10 before coming to a close on the night of April 11. The stream for the pay-per-view will begin at 7 P.M. ET, with the Kickoff pre-show starting at 6 P.M. ET. This is likely to be the starting time for both nights of the event.
In order to make sure that you’re ready to go for the biggest night in wrestling, you’ll want to sign up for Peacock’s streaming service. For a limited time, you can sign up for four months of Peacock Premium at just $2.50 per month. This is a 50% discount and brings the total to less than $10, which is great considering that was the monthly price of WWE Network. But in addition to being able to view all of the upcoming WWE pay-per-views, you’ll also get access to Peacock’s vast library of hit movies and TV shows, Forbes wrote.

WrestleMania 37: Will fans be in attendance?
It is hoped that at least some fans will be allowed into Raymond James Stadium for the two-day event.
Super Bowl 55 is also being held in Tampa on February 7 and 22,000 fans will be in the stands.
Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said: “The opportunity for Tampa Bay to host WrestleMania in April is, in true WWE fashion, the perfect comeback story and marks a clear indication that our beautiful city is poised to bounce back stronger than ever, Talk Sport cited.
“We can’t wait to once again showcase all that team Tampa Bay has to offer.”
WrestleMania 37 card
Universal championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Edge
SmackDown women's championship: Sasha Banks (c) vs. Bianca Belair
WWE Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre
Raw tag team championships: The New Day (c) vs. AJ Styles & Omos
WrestleMania 36 aired on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 from the WWE's Performance Center in Orlando and other closed-set locations. Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida was initially set to host the event, but in light of the banning of mass gatherings due to the coronavirus epidemic, WWE elected to move their shows to a controlled environment.
Former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski hosted both nights of WrestleMania, ESPN reported.
WWE WrestleMania 37 predictions
Raw Women's Championship -- Asuka (c) vs. Charlotte Flair: Once Asuka and Flair dropped the women's tag team titles, the wheels began to fall off the friendship. Flair declared herself as the only credible challenger to the long-reigning champion Asuka, so we seem to be headed toward a rematch of the WrestleMania 34 encounter between the two -- a match in which Flair, the SmackDown women's champion at the time, emerged victoriously.
Bad Bunny & Damien Priest vs. The Miz & John Morrison: It only makes sense to finish playing out the Bad Bunny story that has been steadily advancing since Bunny performed at the Rumble. The priest has been the muscle in the pair, and they've beaten Miz and Morrison at nearly every turn both in and out of the ring. This is the kind of "special match" that fits at WrestleMania better than any other time of the year.
"The Fiend" Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton: Since Orton set The Fiend on fire, Alexa Bliss has repeatedly made Orton's life miserable. All the while, Bliss has promised that The Fiend would be reborn. That is likely to happen ahead of WrestleMania, leading to another Wyatt-centric gimmick match. It could also see the return of the cinematic matches that were the highlight of 2020's two-day WrestleMania before the company overused them and they lost steam.
Shane McMahon vs. Braun Strowman: This feud has been brewing for quite some time, and given McMahon's recent verbal attacks on Strowman in which he calls out the "Monster Among Men's" supposed stupidity, these two seemed destined to clash inside Raymond James Stadium. After a one-year hiatus, WrestleMania will again showcase a match featuring McMahon -- which usually tends to deliver some sort of memorable moment.
Intercontinental Championship -- Big E (c) vs. Apollo Crews: Big E and Crews will meet one another at Fastlane in a title match, but you get the feeling that won't mark the end of the feud between these two, no matter the outcome. If Big E vs. Crews isn't the intercontinental title match at WrestleMania, there isn't a ton of time to build to an impactful showcase for the champion.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship -- Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode (c) vs. The Street Profits: The Profits have been waiting for their opportunity to get a rematch after losing the titles to Ziggler and Roode. They've been told by Sonya Deville that they'll get their shot when the time is right -- so when is the time ever more right than WrestleMania?
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal: With two days of WrestleMania to fill, the return of the battle royal would serve as good filler as well as an opportunity to showcase more of the roster under the brightest of lights. The field will largely be driven by who does and does not have an active storyline heading into the event, but the return of a WrestleMania tradition makes sense.
Women's Battle Royal: For reasons similar to the men's battle royal, there's plenty of reason to feature the return of the women's battle royal. This is doubly true with the sad fact that women, while an increasingly core part of WWE shows, still get far fewer featured spots on pay-per-view events than men. With so many talented women needing a chance to shine, WWE will likely load up the ring with a trophy on the line, Cbssports predicted.
