Wrestling fans will, this weekend, have the time of their lives, as Wrestlemania lights up DStv and GOtv screens this weekend. They also get the additional benefit of watching live boxing with a double world championship bill from Las Vegas.
A whole week of wrestling excess culminates in the show to end all shows at the Superdome in New Orleans, where up to 80 000 fans will pay homage to WWE superstars like John Cena, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, Braun Strowman and Sasha Banks all parading at WrestleMania 34.
There is also the much-anticipated debut of former mixed martial artist, Ronda Rousey, who previously reined as the most dangerous woman on the planet.
Excitement is already at nuclear levels with several red-hot contests beginning to boil over. One of the biggest head-to-heads will see man mountain Lesnar up against fan fiend Reigns, who booked his spot in the Universal Championship after twice belting Strowman. There’s plenty of beef between the pair, especially after Reigns was arrested at a Raw event with Lesnar, then beat him with a chair.
Much of the interest will be on Rousey, making her WWE debut at WrestleMania. A lot of interest is also swirling around the potential battle between Cena and The Undertaker, who has come out of retirement – again! Cena himself has said it’s a contest he wants, ensuring fans are set for a likely classic in what may indeed be The Undertaker’s final assignment.
DStv will also broadcast the pre-show as well as the kick-off show live prior to the event on SuperSport.
