This will be the third year in a row that WrestleMania will be split into two nights. The first year came when WrestleMania took place at the WWE Performance Center without fans due to the pandemic. Last year fans were back in attendance at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL, and was also the first WrestleMania event to only be available on Peacock for U.S. fans. The main event of Night 1 saw Bianca Belair defeat Sasha Banks to win the SmackDown Women's Championship, with a Night 2 main event of Universal Champion Roman Reigns retain against Edge and Daniel Bryan.
The Road to WrestleMania marches on this Saturday with the Royal Rumble. There will once again be a Men's and Women's Rumble, with the women's field filled with some big-time names from WWE's past, such as Mickie James, Nikki and Brie Bella, Lita, Michelle McCool, Kelly Kelly, and Summer Rae.
