WWE WrestleMania 39 matches, card, date, location, news, stories and information
It’s been 18 years since WWE last hosted its annual landmark event in Southern California, as the 39th edition of WrestleMania will land at SoFi Stadium for the weekend extravaganza in Inglewood starting Saturday, April 1st.
The main event will see Roman Reigns put his undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line against Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes. Reigns, a six-time world champion, held the title for almost two and a half years. Meanwhile, Rhodes returned to WWE during last year’s WrestleMania after helping launch the All Elite Wrestling promotion.
Other titles at WrestleMania 39 include both women’s championships. Asuka, the winner of the women’s Elimination Chamber match in February, will take on Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Title. The SmackDown Women’s Title will be up for grabs as Charlotte Flair looks to retain her belt against Rhea Ripley. Ripley earned her title shot by winning the Women’s Royal Rumble in January.
