One of the other most-talked about matches for the weekend is Becky Lynch defending her Raw Women's Championship against Bianca Belair.

Typically, there's a Kickoff Show which airs one hour prior to the main card. There, you'll see at least one match take place. In the past, Wrestlemania--and a few other mainstay PPVs--had a two hour preshow, but that seems to be history now. WWE's Wrestlemania Kickoff Show will air on Peacock, Twitter, and YouTube both days. However, Saturday's Kickoff will also air live on the USA Network.
How to watch:
If you want to watch the main card for WWE's Wrestlemania, you can purchase the event through your cable or satellite provider or watch it on Peacock.
