*** Elimination Chamber spoilers ahead ***
The surprising conclusion to the Elimination Chamber left the WWE Universe in a state of shock as The Miz exited the event as the newly-crowned WWE champion. After surviving a brutal Elimination Chamber match, Drew McIntyre was attacked by the now former United States champion Bobby Lashley, which led to The Miz finally cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase to defeat McIntyre and become a two-time WWE champion.
A lot can happen between now and WrestleMania. The two-night event is scheduled to take place on April 10 and 11 from Raymond James Stadium in Florida. Normally, fans would watch WrestleMania on the WWE Network, but back in January it was announced that beginning March 18, NBC’s Peacock will be the exclusive home of the WWE Network in the United States. But, as always, card is subject to change.
During the Elimination Chamber, it was revealed that WWE’s next pay-per-view, Fastlane, will air on both the WWE Network and Peacock in the U.S., despite the fact that the event takes place three days after the Peacock/WWE Network launch date (March 21). According to the Peacock website, Peacock becomes the exclusive streaming home of the WWE Network in April.
What exactly does this mean for WrestleMania 37? Here’s everything we know.
WILL WRESTLEMANIA 37 BE ON THE WWE NETWORK?
“And a very important note for those of you watching in the United States,” Tom Phillips said during the Elimination Chamber event. “Peacock will be the exclusive home of this year’s WrestleMania.”
If you live outside of the United States, WrestleMania will still be available on the WWE Network. For U.S. customers, Peacock will soon be the only place to watch the WWE Network, which means WrestleMania won’t be available on the WWE Network. When news broke about the WWE/Peacock deal, Variety reported that fans would still have the option to order WWE events via “traditional pay-per-view,” but the $4.99/month Peacock option is a substantially cheaper alternative.
Additional details are expected to be released prior to the March 18 launch date.
SO I CAN WATCH WRESTLEMANIA 37 ON PEACOCK, RIGHT?
Yep. Beginning on March 18, 2021, the WWE Network will be available via Peacock Premium ($4.99/month or $49.99/year). An ad-free option, Peacock Premium Plus, is also available for an additional $5/month.
A seven-day free trial is currently available for eligible subscribers.
