The day is finally here. The biggest day in all of professional wrestling/sports entertainment. WrestleMania 38 has finally reached us. The now two-day spectacle has a ton of matches on the card that includes stars from outside the ring. Taking place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the 2022 WrestleMania will be a two-night event, but what time does WrestleMania 38 start in each night?
The WrestleMania start time for both nights is 8 p.m. EST on Peacock. There is also a preshow that will begin at 6 p.m. EST on both nights. Both nights of the event look to be packed with exciting matches. Of course, there will also be some surprises.

Night 2 of WrestleMania 38
Raw Tag Team Championships: RK-Bro (Matt Riddle & Randy Orton) (c) vs. The Street Profits vs. Alpha Academy
Women’s Tag Team Championship — Queen Zelina & Carmella (c) vs. Sasha Banks & Naomi vs. Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan vs. Natalya & Shayna Baszler
While this is certainly a collection of thrown-together teams chasing after a title that Zelina and Carmella won in November and have only defended once (in January), it’s nice to see more people get their chance to participate in WrestleMania.
Johnny Knoxville vs. Sami Zayn
WWE is very good at working celebrities through a match. Aside from Tyson Fury, it’s hard to remember any recent celebrity matches that haven’t led to big “Wow! Can you believe it?” reactions. With that in mind, expect Zayn vs. Knoxville to be a fun ride while it lasts. Zayn is exactly the right kind of heel to lose this match and have that loss be a benefit in building him up.
You would hope that WWE would not go so far as to have a quality superstar like Zayn take the L for “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville. The no-disqualification stipulation should present opportunities for run-ins and fun stunts from other stars from the film franchise. At present, Knoxville has not endeared himself to the roster and Zayn is not in any other feuds, so a superstar run-in seems unlikely. Maybe WWE surprises everyone with a fun cameo to aid Knoxville, but Zayn really should win this.
Bobby Lashley vs. Omos
WWE has booked themselves into something of a no-win situation here. Lashley is returning from several months on the sidelines and his return should result in a win. Omos has been unstoppable as a singles star and that aura takes a massive hit when he suffers his first loss. So, where do you go? Tank Lashley’s momentum on his return or cut Omos’ monster heel run off at the knees. If there’s any out here, it may be in finding the cheapest way for Lashley to lose, which could come down to MVP turning on him and moving on to manage Omos. That would benefit the monster by giving him someone who can work the mic and extend the program with Lashley for a while.
Pat McAfee vs. Austin Theory
McAfee has shown that he can wrestle shockingly well in multiple matches in NXT. Theory is a talented wrestler but he isn’t exactly Adam Cole, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this were a minor step down overall from those past McAfee matches. Still, WWE has fully bought in on Theory, from having him taken under Vince McMahon’s wing to a spot in Elimination Chamber and now a featured WrestleMania spot. That should mean a win for the guy who will be wrestling every Monday night.
Raw Tag Team Championship — RK-Bro (c) vs. The Street Profits vs. Alpha Academy
The talk since RK-Bro began their run has been that Randy Orton and Riddle will have to split and feud. That’s probably true given that WWE loves to split up tag teams. As entertaining as RK-Bro is as an act, you get the sense that WWE is getting antsy to break them up for a less entertaining feud. That Orton has come to fully embrace Riddle as being his friend is probably a sign the team is doomed. Losing the titles on the big stage could certainly kick off that story and Alpha Academy are the more entertaining team to run forward as champs. Pick: Alpha Academy win the titles — Brookhouse
Edge vs. AJ Styles
The Edge we’ve seen dropping promos straight out of a late 1990s e-fed has been the low point of Edge’s return. WWE has largely followed the same pattern with Edge rivalries since his return — stretching things out over a string of two or three matches. With that in mind, it’s unlikely that the story between Styles and Edge ends with just one match, even if it manages to steal the show at WrestleMania. With that in mind, it may make more sense for Edge to take the win.
Title vs. Title — Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns (c)
Given that Lesnar is 2-0 against Reigns in WrestleMania main events, it certainly would make sense for Reigns to get the win here, just like his cousin Dwayne finally getting his win over Steve Austin in their third WrestleMania clash. Still, my internal bias is overriding logic. The Reigns championship reign is completely stalled out. The momentum was gone months and months ago and no amount of Reigns cutting the same stale promo is fixing it. The only way to get his momentum back is to end his run as the unbeatable champion. Reigns can get his win over Lesnar down the road in the inevitable fourth Lesnar vs. Reigns WrestleMania main event.
