WrestleMania 38 Night 1 – Live recaps and analysis

The biggest event in professional wrestling is ready to touch down at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. WrestleMania 38, a two-night affair at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, will spotlight the superstars of WWE with all of the promotion’s titles on the line. Saturday’s festivities include three title matches, the return of an icon and the first match for a social media star.

The night is likely to kick off with WWE Raw Women’s champion Becky Lynch facing Bianca Belair in a rematch after Belair stunningly dropped her title to Lynch in just 26 seconds at SummerSlam last August. Other standout matches include The Miz teaming up with social media star Logan Paul to take on the father-son duo of Rey and Dominik Mysterio, Edge facing AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins facing an opponent that Mr. McMahon will introduce once Rollins is in the ring.

The other two title fights on Saturday’s card: The Usos will look to retain their SmackDown tag team titles against Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs, and Ronda Rousey will aim for the SmackDown women’s championship, as she chose a match with Charlotte Flair after winning the women’s Royal Rumble in January.

Also, in what is expected to be the main event of Night 1, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will walk down the ramp for an appearance on the “KO Show,” hosted by Kevin Owens. The assumption is that hands will be thrown, beer will be chugged and someone will be on the wrong end of a stunner.
