It's Wrestlemania Time!

We've had a few weeks of wrestling-themed content here on YesterYear Retro.  With this weekend being the "Grandest Stage of Them All," Wrestlemania 38, why not keep the wrestling content flowing?  

Admittedly, I've stopped watching WWE these days.  I've switched over to AEW, which reminds me more of the old days than the modern WWE.  Like many fair-weather fans, I'll still be tuning in to check out the "Showcase of the Immortals" this weekend.

I'm looking forward to seeing "Stone Cold" Steve Austin return this year.  He's only billed as "appearing" on the show, but rumor has it he's been training for some in-ring action.   

Please click "Keep Reading" to read on...Two years ago, as the excitement built for the annual event, I wrote several features covering some of my favorite Wrestlemania moments of all time.  Unfortunately, covid had different plans, and just a month into the pandemic, Wrestlemania became a two-night event taped in an empty warehouse at the WWE's training and performance center. 

To get yourself excited about this years 'Mania, check out my features on my favorite Wrestlemania's from years gone by.  Hopefully, they'll remind you of some of the great moments in Wrestlemania history!   

Wrestlemania will air live on two nights from Dallas, Texas.  Night one will take place on Saturday, April 2, while night two will be on Sunday, April 3.  Before WrestleMania night one on Saturday, WWE will produce its NXT Stand and Deliver event.  Both nights start at 8pm Eastern with a special "Kick-Off" Show, airing an hour earlier at 7pm Eastern.
