WWE WrestleMania 38 2022: As the 38th edition of WWE's premier event takes place this weekend, the splendour of WrestleMania will be on full display.
WrestleMania 38 will take place this Saturday and Sunday at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. It's the third year in a row that WrestleMania has been split into two nights.
WrestleMania 38 is the WWE's forthcoming 38th annual WrestleMania professional wrestling live event. It will include wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brand divisions of the business.
The event will be broadcast live on pay-per-view (PPV) around the world and streamed on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network globally. It will be a two-night event, taking place on April 2 and 3, 2022, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.
Where Will WWE WrestleMania 38 2022 Take Place?
This year's WrestleMania is bigger than ever. The 38th edition of WWE's biggest yearly event will take place in Dallas, and it will be the first time the event is split into two nights, each with a full house.
WWE WrestleMania 38 2022: How to Watch?
- NXT’s Stand and Deliver, noon ET, Peacock (U.S.), WWE Network (international)
- WrestleMania 38: Night 1 pre-show, 6 p.m. ET, USA Network
- WrestleMania 38: Night 1, 8 p.m. ET, Peacock (U.S.), WWE Network (international)
- WrestleMania 38: Night 2, 8 p.m. ET, Peacock (U.S.), WWE Network (international)
The simplest solution is to obtain Peacock. You can still buy the show for $59.99 plus tax on traditional pay per view, but it's a waste of money when you can get it for $5 a month — or even less if you already have the service.
WrestleMania takes place on Saturday, April 2nd, and Sunday, April 3rd. Both nights begin at 8 p.m. ET, with the pre-show (which includes matches) beginning at 7 p.m. ET on both nights.
To Whom WWE WrestleMania 38 2022 will Feature?
There's no doubt that WrestleMania 38 will feature the type of headline-making “WrestleMania moments” that the show has grown renowned for, with most of the card constructed around large returns and celebrity involvement.
Since its beginning, WrestleMania has been a pop culture extravaganza, but it's critical that the over-the-top spectacle is accompanied with substance. While the undercard has been erratic, the main event fights at WrestleMania 38 appear to be deserving of their spots on the year's biggest show.
- Some of the biggest names in wrestling will compete at WrestleMania, including Stone Cold Steve Austin. At least one significant return is expected on Night 1 of WrestleMania 38, with a second appearing to be a foregone conclusion. On The KO Show, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will return to WrestleMania for a match against Kevin Owens. Vince McMahon will match Seth Rollins against an opponent of his choosing, with all indicators pointing to former AEW executive vice president Cody Rhodes.
- The Head of the Table – Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar – will face off in the main event of WWE's biggest and oldest event, with their ‘Winner Takes All' battle putting their Universal Championship and WWE Championship on the line, respectively.
- ‘The baddest woman on the face of the earth' – In the title fight, Ronda Rousey will face Charlotte Flair, the SmackDown Women's Champion. Raw Women's Champion ‘Big Time Becks' – Becky Lynch will defend her championship against Bianca Belair after a history of injuries and fractures.
- A triple threat match pitting The Street Profits against the Raw Tag Team Champions — RK Bro and Alpha Academy – is also on the schedule. Queen Zelina and Carmella will compete against Sasha Banks & Naomi, Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan, and Natalya & Shayna Baszler in a women's tag team match.
- The Miz and Logan Paul will fight father-son team Rey and Dominik Mysterio. In the ‘Anything Goes Match,' Hollywood celebrity Johnny Knoxville will face off against Sami Zayn.
- Aside from the spectacular Live WWE events, the WrestleMania weekend will also feature the much-anticipated ‘The 2022 Hall of Fame Ceremony,' which will feature the induction of ‘The Undertaker' on April 3, 2022, at 6:00 pm IST.

The week will come to a close on April 4 with the Raw following WrestleMania.
In recent years, WrestleMania has been split into two nights, with each night lasting approximately four hours. If you're not prepared, it's a ludicrous amount of wrestling. Still, it's WrestleMania… it's a once-a-year event, and you've earned the right to sit on a sofa for an inordinate amount of time and watch grown adults ragdoll each other. You've worked hard for it.
We'll break down the card and tell you what you shouldn't miss if you're a little pickier and only want to focus on a few major matches.
