WrestleMania is this Sunday. The event used to be predictable as all hell, as the then-WWF always closed its biggest show of the year with its top “good guy” winning. Today, the WWE does everything it can to avoid being predictable – even at the cost of potentially burying a young talent.
In an overall odd card, I expect the biggest upset of the night to take place when Chris Jericho upsets Kevin Owens. It’s becoming something of a tradition for the Jericho matches at WM to go in the opposite direction. He was upset by friggin’ Fandango at WrestleMania 29 but then in his next WrestleMania match he beat AJ Styles (who was being pushed hard).
One would think the WWE would want to make the younger Owens look good, but here’s saying they’ll pull their upset card here. Also: Brock Lesnar over Goldberg (biggest lock of all-time), Bray Wyatt over Randy Orton, Undertaker over Roman Reigns and Shane McMahon falls through the ring on top of the ring they have set up in Orlando. Doesn’t die though.
Here’s a look at what time WrestleMania 33 will start in Orlando (TV, streaming information).
Sunday, April 2
WrestleMania kickoff show (5 p.m. ET, only WWE Network streaming)
WrestleMania 33 (7 p.m. ET, Pay-Per-View, WWE Network streaming)
Last year’s WrestleMania ended the latest for any WWE PPV event in history, at 11:46 p.m. Eastern. This year’s card will provide a long show, but it’s unlikely the show will run as long. Expect “33” to wrap up around 11:15 p.m..
