In what could be the biggest and most spectacular event in WWE history, WrestleMania 39 takes over Hollywood boasting a star-studded match card. Night 1 - which aired on Saturday (April 1) - saw John Cena lose to Austin Theory, a great performance from YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI and much more, but what does Night 2 have in store?
Once again, the pay-per-view has been held across two nights on April 1 and April 2 at California’s sold-out SoFi Stadium. It was initially scheduled to be the venue of WrestleMania 37, but was relocated to Tampa, Florida due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The road to WrestleMania has once again been exhilarating, coming off the back of a brutal Elimination Chamber and a Royal Rumble show which saw ex-AEW star Cody Rhodes and The Judgement Day member Rhea Rhipley win their respective rumbles. Fans in LA and worldwide saw Rhipley win the SmackDown Women’s Title on Night 1, defeating Charlotte Flaire.
One of the biggest storylines that has glued viewers’ eyes to WWE’s weekly iterations of RAW and SmackDown is the much-loved Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens’ feud with The Usos of The Bloodline. The team of Zayn and KO main evented the first night of WrestleMania where they defeated their rivals to win the Undisputed Tag Team Championships.
Major talking points heading into Night 2 of the ‘show of shows’ include whether or not Roman Reigns’ over 900-day reign as Undisputed Universal Champion will come to an end by the hands of Cody Rhodes. The ‘son of a plumber’ is hoping to finish his WWE return with the major championship after he left competitors AEW to join the company one-year-ago.
But what was the full match card of Night 1 and what should BT Sports and WWE Network viewers expect for Night 2 of WrestleMania 39, what time does it start in the UK and how can you watch it? Here is everything you must know this weekend.
