WrestleMania Kickoff shows to air on FS1 as FOX Sports to offer Mania on PPV and other programming

FOX Sports is teaming up with WWE this WrestleMania week including the availability of the pay-per-view itself for $59.99 on the FOX Sports and FOX NOW apps. The WrestleMania Kickoff shows on both nights will also be airing on FS1 and FOX Deportes on Saturday and Sunday starting at 6PM ET.

Also, FOX Sports will be presenting 22 hours of WWE content this spring with shows ranging from old pay-per-views to the Ruthless Aggression series, and the new Best Of WWE series.

“We’re pleased to offer this new slate of WWE programming for viewers during these challenging times,” said Mark Silverman, President, National Networks, FOX Sports. “We hope this lineup of sports entertainment programming serves as a much-needed relief for fans. We appreciate the hard work and creativity of the teams on both sides of our long-term partnership with WWE.”

A full programming schedule including all events and specials will follow at a later date. In the meantime, tonight starting at 7PM ET, FS1 will air the Royal Rumble and will be followed by a modified remote format of WWE Backstage at 11PM ET with Renee Young, Booker T, Paige, and Mark Henry as they join from their own home to discuss the latest news ahead of WrestleMania.

“Six months after our historic partnership brought Smackdown to its new home on FOX, we are thrilled to deliver even more premium programming, including WrestleMania, across the entire FOX Sports portfolio,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “In partnership with FOX Sports, it’s a privilege to be able to entertain our fans each week and put smiles on their faces particularly during a time when they need it the most.”
