WrestleMania Axxess is set to take place next week, starting Thursday, April 5 and continuing daily through to the big day on Sunday, April 8. It gives fans the opportunity to meet their favorite WWE superstars and take part in meet-and-greets, autograph signings, and other activities throughout the event.
WWE have just announced the lineups and schedules for each day on WWE.com, so here they are in chronological order.
Thursday, April 5
6 p.m. – Carmella, Jinder Mahal, Naomi, Samoa Joe, Aiden English, The Dudley Boyz, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, The Revival, Big Cass, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
Thursday contains two big names who will, presumably, not be competing at WrestleMania 34 due to injuries, those being Big Cass and Samoa Joe. Arguably the biggest name in attendance next Thursday will be former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, who will be competing in a fatal four way for the WWE United States Championship at the ‘Show of Shows’ against Rusev, Bobby Roode and defending champion Randy Orton. Also in attendance on the opening day, will be The Dudley Boyz who are to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday, April 6.
Friday, April 6
5 p.m. – The Bludgeon Brothers, Paige, Bray Wyatt, Ruby Riott, The New Day, Authors of Pain w/ Paul Ellering, Johnny Gargano, Breezango, Tye Dillinger, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce, Pete Dunne, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
Friday sees multiple members of the NXT roster in attendance, including Johnny Gargano who is set to take on Tommaso Ciampa in an unsanctioned match at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans on Saturday, April 7, and WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne. Also, two components of WrestleMania‘s WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship triple threat match will be present, those being Harper and Rowan of the Bludgeon Brothers and Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of the New Day.
Saturday, April 7
Session 1, 8 a.m. – Mark Henry, Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Big Cass, Naomi, Kevin Nash, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Dana Brooke, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
In the first stage of a three-part medley on Saturday will be two WWE Hall of Famers, as both Kevin Nash, who was inducted in 2015, and Mark Henry, who will be inducted on Friday, April 6 this year, will be at Axxess. Three former André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winners will also be there, in Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, and Cesaro who, along with his partner Sheamus, is set to defend the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships against Braun Strowman and a mystery partner at the ‘Showcase of the Immortals’.
Saturday, April 7
Session 2, 1 p.m. – Rusev & Aiden English, The Bella Twins, Sami Zayn, Cedric Alexander, The Revival, Paige, Jeff Jarrett, Lana, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
Part two of Saturday’s trio of events includes the attendance of WWE Hall of Fame 2018 inductee Jeff Jarrett, Mustafa Ali’s opponent in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship match at ‘Mania, Cedric Alexander, and two huge SmackDown Live names in Rusev and Sami Zayn. After pinning current WWE United States Champion Randy Orton on Tuesday, Rusev was added to United States title match at ‘Mania, thus making it a fatal four way, whereas Sami Zayn, despite being fired by SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan last week, is set to team up with Kevin Owens to take on Bryan and Shane McMahon in tag team action. Hopefully, there’ll be a tonne of Rusev Day merch there too.
Saturday, April 7
Session 3, 6 p.m. – The Miz, Kane, Kevin Owens, Mickie James, Sheamus, Jinder Mahal, Alicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, Bray Wyatt, The Bludgeon Brothers, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
The third and final installment of Saturday’s edition of WrestleMania Axxess contains, in my opinion, the best field of the bunch. Sami Zayn’s partner in crime on SmackDown Live, and partner in their match at WrestleMania, Kevin Owens will be in attendance, as will the second half of the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus, and Bray Wyatt, who was recently thrown in the ‘Lake of Reincarnation’ by Matt Hardy in the Ultimate Deletion. The biggest name in attendance throughout all of Axxess though could be The Miz. The must-see current WWE Intercontinental Champion will defend his title in a triple threat match at the ‘Show of Shows’ against Seth Rollins and Finn Bálor.
Sunday, April 8
8 a.m. – Trish Stratus, Apollo & Titus O’Neil, Lita, Bayley, Elias, Jason Jordan, Sin Cara, Kalisto, Aleister Black, Kevin Nash, DDP, Zack Ryder, WWE Legends, Superstars from NXT, 205 Live and much more!
The lineup for the morning of the big day includes one of NXT‘s hottest properties in Aleister Black, who by April 8, could be the NXT Champion as he takes on current champion Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas the night prior at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans. WWE Hall of Famer and the final entrant into the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble Trish Stratus will be there, as will Elias, who claims he will give us the “performance of a lifetime” at WrestleMania.
