WrestleMania 32 in Arlington, Texas has ended up being too big for a four-hour pay-per-view. So big, in fact, that three of the matches will appear as part of a two hour "Kickoff Show" on Sunday. The second hour of that Kickoff Show, for the first time ever, will air live on USA Network in addition to the WWE Network.
The hour of the Kickoff Show broadcast on the USA Network will feature two matches, as well as interviews, analysis and video packages explaining everything going down at WrestleMania. USA Network's coverage will begin at 6 p.m. ET on Sunday.
The USA Network coverage of the Kickoff Show will also feature a tag team grudge match between the Usos and the Dudley Boyz and a 10-Divas tag team match between Brie Bella's Total Divas team and Lana's B.A.D. and Blonde team.
For those of you who have WWE Network or have ordered the event on pay-per-view, you will receive a second hour of the Kickoff Show, which begins at 5 p.m. ET and will feature the United States Championship Match between Kalisto and Ryback. The second hour of the Kickoff Show will be simulcast on USA Network, while WrestleMania 32 proper begins at 7 p.m. ET.
