It’s the most wonderful time of the year for wrestling fans, as WrestleMania weekend fast approaches.

In recent years, WWE’s blowout show - akin to the SuperBowl of wrestling - has been stretched out across two nights, and the same is true for 2022’s event.

But just exactly what can we expect? What are the marquee matches, and who is predicted to walk away with championship gold?

Here is everything you need to know.

When is WrestleMania 2022?

As has been the case over the last couple of years, WrestleMania is taking place over two nights in 2022.


The first night of festivities will take place on Saturday 1 April, with the second night on Sunday 2 April.

It will take place at the AT&T Stadium in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex city of Arlington, Texas.

Which matches will it include?

A number of highly-anticipated match ups have already been announced ahead of Wrestlemania 38, with plenty of championships on the line in what promises to be an exciting night of WWE action.

The show’s main event will feature Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns with WWE billing the match as "The Biggest WrestleMania Match of All-Time", which will see the unification of the promotion's two world championships, Raw's WWE Championship and SmackDown's Universal Championship, held by Lesnar and Reigns, respectively.

How can I watch it in the UK?

WrestleMania 38 will be shown on pay per view in the UK.

WWE fans can watch the action unfold through the BT Sport Box Office. The service is also available for Sky customers.

Alternatively, WrestleMania 38will be streamed by the WWE Network.

The WWE Network costs UK viewers £9.99 per month and can be cancelled at any time.


What else is happening?

As has become tradition in recent years, a number of smaller, more independent wrestling companies are also setting up shop in Texas this weekend, making for an unofficial festival of wrestling in Texas.

So if you’re not a fan of WWE’s more ‘mainstream’ wrestling product, there will likely still be plenty for you to enjoy.

Take for instance GCW’s ‘The Collective’, an umbrella term for an event that spans the entire weekend, and showcases the very best in independent wrestling.
