WrestleMania 37: Date, start time and how to watch in Australia
This annual two-night extravaganza of wrestling is shaping up to be another explosive affair.
WrestleMania 37 is the first WWE pay-per-view event to take place in front of a crowd since March 2020. That's excellent news, signalling that things are slowly but surely getting back to some sort of normal following a year of restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, while there are plenty of fights that should catch fans' attention, each night will be headlined by an exciting bout.
On the first night, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will face off with fellow superstar and former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
On the second night, Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against both Edge and Daniel Bryan. It's all being hosted by wrestling royalty, Hulk Hogan and Titus O'Neil. Here's how to watch all the action from Australia.
