For the first time since 2005, WWE will take over the city of Angels, as the company hosts the 39th edition of the grand spectacle that is WrestleMania.
Boasting a grand total of 13 matches, WrestleMania 39 will offer many of the WWE’s best a glorious opportunity to decide champions and settle long-held grudges on the biggest stage in the world. WrestleMania 39 will take place inside SoFi Stadium—the home of the NFL’s Rams and Chargers—in Inglewood, Calif., marking the company’s first WrestleMania in Los Angeles since hosting WrestleMania 21 inside the formerly-named Staples Center (now Crypto.com Arena).
The widely-anticipated showcase will again feature two nights of action for the fourth-straight year, with Night 1 set to kick off on April 1 followed by Night 2 on April 2. Both nights will begin with a two-hour kickoff show that will feature interviews and backstage segments, set to air on Peacock beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
The main card of WrestleMania 39 will begin at 8 p.m. ET (Peacock), with singer Becky G set to open Saturday night with a live performance of “America The Beautiful.” This year’s slate of action will kick off with a United States championship match for the ages, as champion Austin Theory defends his belt against the iconic John Cena—a match happening 19 years after Cena won his first U.S. title at WrestleMania 20.
A pair of vicious grudge matches stand out among the highlights on the card, with The Usos taking on Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the undisputed WWE tag team titles and Rey Mysterio facing his son Dominik Mysterio. Also slated for Night 1, SmackDown women’s champion Charlotte Flair will defend her title against 2023 Royal Rumble winner Rhea Ripley, Seth Rollins will take on Logan Paul in a possible show-stealer and Hall of Famer Trish Stratus will team up with WWE women’s tag team champions Becky Lynch and Lita (Stratus’s fellow HOFer) to face Damage CTRL (Bayley, Dakota Kai, Iyo Sky).
