WWE’s biggest PPV of the year is none other than Wrestlemania 37, which is coming to Peacock on April 10 and 11. The two-night event will see wrestlers from Smackdown and Raw battle each other on the biggest stage of the year.
2021’s Wrestlemania will span two nights, much like last year’s, taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. However, this year, you’ll be able to attend the event live if you so chose–but you’ll have to buy groups of tickets as social distancing will be in place.
If you can’t or won’t attend the live event, you’ll probably want to watch from the safety and comfort of your own couch. If you live in the United States or Australia, Wrestlemania airs at a reasonable hour. If you live in the UK, we’re very sorry if you want to watch live because it’s going to be two long mornings for you. Check out some global start times below.
Start time on April 10 and 11:
- 5 PM PT
- 7 PM CT
- 8 PM ET
- 1 AM BST (April 11, 12)
- 10 AM AEST (April 11, 12)
Of course, these start times are for the main card. Typically, WWE has a Kickoff Show–which has been two hours long in the past for Wrestlemania–that airs on Twitter and YouTube for free. It’s unknown how long this year’s Kickoff Show will be, but there should be a match or two on each one on both nights. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
How to watch:
For years, the best way to watch WWE PPVs was by signing up for the WWE Network, the company’s streaming service. And while people outside of the United States can still do that, folks in the US will have to access Wrestlemania through NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock–as the WWE Network service will have ended by then.
Peacock will be the new home to WWE content for now, with classic episodes of Raw, Smackdown, and NXT available to watch on demand. Additionally, Peacock will live stream major events and you can check out the backlog of WWE PPVs, original content, and plenty of other things that were available on the WWE Network.
In order to watch WWE PPVs on Peacock, you’ll need a Premium or Premium Plus account, which costs money. A Premium account is ad-supported but only costs $5 a month, and a Premium Plus account has no ads–there’s some small exceptions to that rule though–and costs $10 a month. Peacock also has original series and like other services, as a catalog of movies and TV shows. However, Peacock also will be live streaming the Tokyo Olympics this summer, which is a big plus for fans.
Wrestlemania 37 match card:
The Wrestlemania 37 card is already pretty stacked, with 12 matches already booked. At the time of this writing, the Smackdown Tag Team Championship match has not been booked and neither has the Women’s Tag Team Championship.

- Sasha Banks (c) vs. Bianca Belair – Smackdown Women’s Championship

Who will win? Who will lose? These are two questions people are probably asking about Wrestlemania.
