It’s that time of year again! Warmer temperatures, drinking beer outside, and the Superbowl of Sports Entertainment! WRESTLEMANIAAAAAA!!!! (Wrestlemania Wiki for more info on it all) This year it will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas where there will be 90,000+ crazy wrestling fans, and millions watching around the world. Hold on a darn minute. There is more going on this week than the 6+ hours of wrestling/coverage/pre and post show this Sunday for Wrestlemania.
You have Triple H’s baby NXT doing a Take Over on Friday April 1st. See Finn Balor defend his NXT title against Samoa Joe, and Bayley defend her NXT Women’s title against Asuka. Of course the only way to watch this take over live is on the WWE Network. It’s your lucky month as WWE is giving you a free month of the network and it includes Wrestlemania.
Then, on Saturday Night you can watch the WWE Hall of Fame, and see the following Hall of Famers get inducted:
The Fabulous Freebirds
Big Boss Man
The times are below for the three days.
|4/1/16||NXT Takeover: Dallas||10 pm ET|

|4/3/16||Wrestlemania 32||7 pm ET|
Here are the cards for the NXT Dallas Take Over and Wrestlemania.
NXT Takeover Dallas Match Card
Great card to see for a take over. I am excited to see Asuka take on Bayley. Asukas move set and whole style is wicked and a breath of fresh air. The Finn and Samoa match I hope is a non-stop brutal assault on both sides, and comes down to someone laying down something huge to take the gold home.
|Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor (C)||NXT Title match|
|Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura||debut match for Nakamura, Last nxt match for Zayn|
|Asuka vs. Bayley (C)||NXT Womens Title match|
|American Alpha vs. The Revival (C)||NXT Tag Title match|
|Baron Corbin vs. Austin Aries||Aries debut match|
|Elilas Samson vs. Apollo Crews|
Mania 32 Match card
Honestly the only matches I am looking forward to is Shane and Undertaker’s Hell in a Cell Match since so much is on the line. Shane can take over Raw with his win, and Undertaker will be barred from future Wrestlemanias where he has shined for 20+ years. The Stakes are high, and I hope its an entertaining match at least no matter what the outcome is. The No Holds Barred match between Lesnar and Dean will be interesting as there has been a lot of build up for this match. Lots of wrestling legends have stopped by to visit Dean and give him pointers and weapon…err gifts to use on Sunday.
AJ Styles and Y2J is a match that I think has the best chance to be a show stealer. AJ has the ability to show us highflying, technical, and crazy moves and Y2J can keep up with him as well. What makes Wrestlemania special to me are the surprises. Celebs or wrestling legends lending a hand in a match at a crucial moment. Screwjobs 🙂
|The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon||Hell in a Cell If Shane loses Shane must hand over the keys to his lockbox over to vince. If shane wins Shane gains control of monday night raw and the Undertaker can no longer wrestle at wrestlemania|
