Ahead of Wrestlemania 33, WWE has made a late change to its match card. It has now pushed the SmackDown Women’s Championship match from the kickoff show to the main card.
Initially there were three matches for the two-hour kickoff show (which begins at 5:00 p.m. ET Sunday) which included the SmackDown Women’s Championship match, the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and the Cruiserweight Championship match between Neville and Austin Aries.
But later on, the match no longer stated that it would be on the pre-show, meaning that the main WrestleMania card now features 11 matches. They were also quite a few concerns raised as to why the match should not be on the main card and it seems like WWE finally took note of it.
The Wrestlemania kickoff show also includes a talk show where Renee Young joins WWE Hall of Famers Jerry Lawler, Booker T and Shawn Michaels to discuss the events leading up to all the action on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
A sold-out crowd will descend upon the Orlando Citrus Bowl for WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza, WrestleMania. The matches at the ultimate thrill-ride includes –
WWE Universal Champion Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar in a rivalry that started 13 years ago
WWE Champion Bray Wyatt go head-to-head with Randy Orton
