How to Watch WWE WrestleMania 40 (+ Full Match Card)

The WrestleMania 40 event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7. You can watch it live on Peacock if you're in the U.S., or on the WWE Network if you're anywhere else in the world.

WrestleMania 40 is just around the corner and the excitement is palpable. The event, dubbed "Wrestling is Cool Again," owes much of its buzz to The Rock. But as the big show approaches, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Hollywood star is taking centre stage over Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes in the main event.

The Rock's Involvement

Wrestling fans have had mixed reactions to The Rock's comeback. On one hand, his star power has brought attention to the event. On the other hand, his actions and comments have stirred controversy, particularly his personal attacks on Rhodes and his family. The Rock's dominance in the storyline has also made Reigns appear less relevant, raising concerns about the portrayal of WWE's top stars.

Cody Rhodes Needs To Win

For many fans, the ideal outcome is clear: Cody Rhodes should emerge victorious. Rhodes has worked hard and deserves to fulfill his dream and uphold his family's legacy after a protracted journey. Winning would mean more than just a personal victory for Rhodes; it would also bring much-needed stability to the WWE Universe, which has been yearning for an enduring champion who can be seen as an authentic representation of the brand.

As WrestleMania 40 approaches, the question remains: Will Cody Rhodes finally get his moment in the spotlight, or will The Rock's overshadowing presence alter the course of WWE history?
