Report: WWE Planning No Kick-Off Show Match On WrestleMania 37 Night One
The action looks to be saved for the main WrestleMania 37 card
Matches before WWE pay-per-views on the kick-off shows have become commonplace, with some major shows even seeing more than one pre-show bout on the WWE Network.
However, it seems WWE may avoid putting any matches on their WrestleMania 37 Night One kick-off show.
A report from WrestleVotes indicates that WWE Creative have held talks about not featuring any sort of in-ring action during the pre-show segments of WrestleMania 37 on Saturday, 10 April.
For the first time in over a year, members of the WWE Universe will be in attendance at a WWE event, and the first entrance back by a superstar in front of those fans is being considered a massive deal by personnel backstage. As such, they are determined to ensure the potential pop is not lost in what could be considered, with hindsight, a throwaway match.
Six matches have been confirmed as taking place on WrestleMania 37 Night One so far. Sasha Banks will defend the Smackdown Women's Championship against Bianca Belair, while Bobby Lashley will put the WWE Championship on the line against Drew McIntyre.
Elsewhere on Night One, The Miz faces Bad Bunny, Cesaro takes on Seth Rollins, The New Day defend the Raw Tag Team Championships against AJ Styles and Omos, and Braun Strowman will battle Shane McMahon in a steel cage.
