Wrestlemania 34: The biggest wrestling event of the year is finally here. Every championship in WWE will be put on the line Sunday night inside the Superdome in New Orleans, and WWE has put together one of the greatest WrestleMania cards in history for what should be an epic 6-hour-plus megashow.
WWE WrestleMania 34 will begin at 7:00 p.m. on the WWE Network.
The WrestleMania 34 kickoff show, which includes three matches, will begin at 5:00 p.m. ET on the WWE Network and YouTube.
The second hour of the kickoff show will also be broadcast on the USA Network. You can sign up for the WWE Network here.
We’ve finally reached the end of the road to WrestleMania, and can you guess what’s there waiting for us? Use the context clues provided. That’s right, it’s WrestleMania, and it’s the 34th edition of the annual super-event. Normally in this previewing space we give you five reasons to watch whatever WWE pay-per-view we’re talking about, but this is Mania, bay-bay. Let’s bump that to seven reasons — one for each hour long the show is!
Where You can Watch Wrestlemania 34
Oh, yeah, WrestleMania is super long, just an fyi. If you don’t want to watch seven hours of the show, tune in at 7 p.m. ET for the official start time: the pre-show will have matches on it, and that will kick off at 5 p.m. ET on the WWE Network.
Asuka and Charlotte are going one-on-one and we are not ready and/or worthy
Charlotte Flair is the most dominant women’s champion WWE has going. Between the WWE Women’s Championship, RAW Women’s title, and SmackDown Women’s belt — the one she currently holds — she’s a six-time Women’s Champ. Charlotte isn’t just where she is because she’s the daughter of Ric Flair — she’s incredible in the ring, knows how to tell a story, and while she’s currently playing a face, is one hell of a heel.
Asuka, on the other hand, is 256-0 in her WWE career. That includes NXT, WWE, house shows, everything. WWE made a big deal of her being the longest reigning champion of any kind of NXT, as well as for breaking Goldberg’s record undefeated streak — something even Goldberg himself complimented the Empress of Tomorrow on. Now she’s the first-ever winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble, and she chose to challenge Charlotte, the only other performer out there who can challenge Asuka’s claim to the throne for the women’s division.
Both performers are the face right now, but they’re also both capable of thriving as a heel — it will not only be fascinating to watch the match in general, but to see what directions and further storylines come out of this matchup. If Charlotte can’t beat Asuka, then who can?
Here is the full list of matches for Sunday’s show.
