There’s no bigger night on the wrestling calendar. And now they are two.
Following last year’s debut of the two-night format – we’re excluding pre-taped, fanless 36 – WWE WrestleMania 38 once again sees the world’s largest professional wrestling company take over a stadium twice.
This time it’s at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, with two shows on Sunday and Monday mornings (AEDT) each expected to hold 60,000 fans.
Combined, they will surpass the record WrestleMania 32 crowd at the same venue, when they claimed over 100,000 attendees (actually it was 93,730…for entertainment purposes only, folks. Expect over 100,000 claims this year.)

The two-night format means that, rather than rushing into one long show, the company can make plenty of time for big games – and shows, of which there are plenty this year.
After all, WrestleMania itself is the biggest star these days – although one match, declared the greatest WrestleMania match of all time by the company, was reasonably well constructed – which means there has some… let’s say unique fights on the map.
Here’s what to expect from WWE WrestleMania 38.
WHEN DOES WWE WRESTLEMANIA 38 START?
WrestleMania 38 is live from Dallas, Texas on April 3-4, with the main card starting at 10:00 a.m. AEST on both days and the pre-show starting at 8:00 a.m. AEST.
Each show should last approximately four hours.
The easiest way to watch WrestleMania 38 is on Main Event via Foxtel or streaming on Kayo.
WHAT IS THE MATCH CARD FOR WRESTLEMANIA 38?
Night 1 (April 3, from 10am AEST)
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
WWE Raw Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) against Bianca Belair
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Usos [Jimmy and Jey Uso] (c) against Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs
Seth Rollins vs. TBA
Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio vs. The Miz and Logan Paul
Drew McIntyre vs. Happy Corbin
the new day [Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston] against Sheamus and Ridge Holland
Remarks: The main event of the first night is expected to be a segment of The KO Show, hosted by Kevin Owens with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as guest.
Austin hasn’t wrestled since retiring at WrestleMania 19, and it won’t be an official match, but a long physical showdown is expected.
The Flair-Rousey title fight is expected to be the last real match of the night.
Seth Rollins’ mystery opponent will be announced overnight by Mr. McMahon. This is expected to be the return of Cody Rhodes, having signed a deal after helping start rival AEW promotion.
Night 2 (April 4, from 10am AEST)
Winner Takes All match to unify WWE Championship and WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c, WWE) vs. Roman Reigns (c, Universal)
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship: RK-Brother [Randy Orton and Riddle] (c) v Street Profits [Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford] against Alpha Academy [Chad Gable and Otis]
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship: Queen Zelina and Carmella (c) against Sasha Banks and Naomi (c) against Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan against Natalya and Shayna Baszler
Johnny Knoxville vs. Sami Zayn [Anything Goes match]
Pat McAfee vs. Austin Theory
Edge Styles vs. AJ
Bobby Lashley vs Omos
Remarks: Lesnar and Reigns will clearly be the main event for this show, marking the third time the pair have competed in a WrestleMania main event together. This is Reigns’ sixth main event at WrestleMania in eight years.
Given Knoxville’s track record, his match with Zayn should be an entertaining car crash, while Edge-Styles could be excellent.
Just like with the Stone Cold segment on night one, there is a plot around Vince McMahon’s role in the McAfee-Theory match on night two. The original plans saw McMahon wrestle McAfee, but given his advanced age, they clearly thought better; the WWE owner could still get involved.
If any matches are added, it’s likely he’ll be here on night two – it’s weird that neither Intercontinental Champion Ricochet nor United States Champion Finn Balor are on the card, for example.
