Viewer’s Guide to WrestleMania Week for April 2021 Programming Lineup


Thursday (April 8):

Another edition of This Week in WWE will be available on Peacock, but today is also packed with a pay-per-view and a special episode of NXT UK.

First, NXT UK Prelude will take place. It has been filmed in advance and it will air as a regular episode of the show on Peacock like everything else, but it’s treated like a special edition. The lineup is as follows:

  • Promos from several Superstars have been advertised, like Ilja Dragunov
  • NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray and Isla Dawn vs. Emilia McKenzie and Meiko Satomura
  • Noam Dar vs. Tyler Bate to determine who gets the next shot at the NXT UK Heritage Cup
  • NXT UK Champion WALTER will defend his title against Rampage Brown

Then, Night 2 of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver will have a pre-show at 7 p.m. ET with the true show starting at 8 p.m. Unlike the prior night, this will not be airing on USA Network. It will be entirely on Peacock.

The card for night 2 is as follows:

  • NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart (c) vs. The Way
  • Unsanctioned Match: Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly
  • NXT North American Championship Match: Johnny Gargano (c) vs. TBD Winner of the Gauntlet Eliminator from Night 1
  • NXT Cruiserweight Championship Ladder Match: Jordan Devlin (c) vs. Santos Escobar (c)
  • NXT Championship Match: Finn Balor (c) vs. Karrion Kross

It is unclear at this time if WWE Main Event was recorded and will air, or if it will just be a recap show with no actual matches.
