March 21, 2024

WWE’s WrestleMania XL is set to be a monumental event, marking the return of the annual spectacle to Philadelphia after a 25-year hiatus. Held at Lincoln Financial Field over two days – April 6th and 7th – the event will  offer a star-studded line-up, electrifying matches, and unforgettable moments that will define the year ahead for the WWE universe.

Ahead of this momentous Premium Live Event, here’s everything you need to know about WrestleMania XL.

What is WrestleMania?

In recent years, WrestleMania has transcended the WWE Universe and sports entertainment fandom, becoming a pop culture phenomenon in its own right. The event regularly sees Hollywood entertainers, major recording artists and some of the world’s biggest sports personalities gather for two nights of can’t-miss moments inside the ring and out.

WrestleMania is the biggest Premium Live Event in the WWE calendar, a two-day spectacle that draws millions of viewers worldwide. Growing in popularity every year, WrestleMania 39 smashed viewership records by over 25 per cent year-on-year, and generated in excess of 500 million social views, proving that the event continues to be a dominant force in sports entertainment.

The match card for WrestleMania XL so far…

The Rock & Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes & Seth Rollins

In a match for the ages, Cody Rhodes and Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins will team up against Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Roman Reigns – proving why its The Showcase of the Immortals. The showstopping tag team match, taking place on Saturday night, has huge implications for Sunday’s clash between Reigns and Rhodes. If Rhodes and Rollins emerge victorious on Saturday, The Bloodline will be barred from ringside for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match. If The Head of the Table and The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment are to win, however, the main event title match on Sunday will become ‘Bloodline Rules’, meaning anything goes where the nefarious faction is concerned.

Now, Paul must contend with two former US Champions at WrestleMania XL.
