WrestleMania is set to start an hour later than usual on both nights with advertising showing an 8PM ET start time.
WWE pay-per-views have all started at 7PM ET in the past several years, with the Kickoff show starting at 6PM ET. WrestleMania typically has a two-hour Kickoff show which starts at 5PM ET but with WrestleMania now a two-night event, it’s likely that there will only be an hour Kick Off on each night.
WrestleMania 36, which was also two nights, started at 7PM ET on both nights with a one-hour Kickoff show. Night one lasted just under three hours while night two went three hours and 20 minutes.
An 8PM ET start time means that the major part of the show will be in the dark, something that stadium Manias suffered from in the past because of the early start and daylight outside. It will also be a bit of a pain for fans across the pond as the show would start at 1AM in the United Kingdom and 2AM for most of Europe.
