WWE Makes WrestleMania 38 Line-Up Change, Kickoff Pre-show Start Times Revealed

WWE has confirmed that there will be two-hour WrestleMania 38 Kickoff pre-shows, one for each night.

The WrestleMania 38 Kickoff pre-show is scheduled to begin at 6pm ET on Night One and Night Two. The Kickoffs will run for two hours, until the main card begins at 8pm ET.

There is no word yet on who will be featured on the Kickoff panels, or what matches will take place on the Kickoff.

In more news on the WrestleMania 38 card, WWE no longer has AJ Styles vs. WWE Hall of Famer Edge assigned to a specific night. The match was previously announced for WrestleMania Sunday, but now it is once again listed for Night One or Night Two. AJ is returning to RAW this coming Monday to continue the feud with Edge, so we should find out then if the bout will air during Night One or Night Two. Out of the 12 matches/segments announced for WrestleMania 38, only two have not been assigned to a night – AJ vs. Edge, and The Street Profits vs. RAW Tag Team Champions RK-Bro.

WrestleMania 38 will take place on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below is the current announced card, along with rumored and expected matches:
