WrestleMania 38’s first night was a lot of fun. (Read our full recap here.) We saw the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Cody Rhodes, plus two strong title matches in Ronda Rousey versus Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch versus Bianca Belair. Now the question is, can WWE top it on Night 2? We’ll find out on Sunday.
The show will be headlined by Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar with both the WWE Championship and Universal Championship on the line. It’s the culmination of the story WWE has been telling since SummerSlam, when Brock returned. Other promising bouts include AJ Styles versus Edge, which could be an instant classic, and Johnny Knoxville versus Sami Zayn, which I have a perverse belief will be fun.
WrestleMania 38 takes place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 2 and 3. For those without a live ticket, both nights start at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m ET. Grappling fans across the pond will have to stay up late, as the shows start at 1 a.m. UK time. In Australia, WrestleMania begins at 10 a.m. AEDT on Sunday and Monday.

How to watch: Peacock, WWE Network
As you probably know by now, Peacock is the new home of WWE’s pay-per-views. The WWE Network has, in essence, migrated to NBC’s Peacock streaming service, and that’s where you’ll go to watch WrestleMania 38. Peacock has three tiers: Free, Premium and Premium Plus. To watch WWE content, you’ll need a Premium subscription. The good news is that’ll set you back $5 a month, less than the $10 for WWE Network.
If you’re outside of the US, you’ll watch WrestleMania on the WWE Network as usual.
