WWE Wrestlemania 40 Events Will Use A Slight Change In Name

WWE is working hard to ensure that WrestleMania 40 lives up to its history as anticipation for the event grows. Fans are set for a remarkable experience on April 6 and 7 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. WWE has made a fascinating alteration to the branding of its pre-shows ahead of WrestleMania weekend.

The upcoming week’s schedule, which details every event leading up to WrestleMania, has been released by the organization. The pre-shows for WWE pay-per-views, commonly referred to as “Kickoff” presentations, have changed significantly. ‘Countdown To (insert program name here)’ is the new moniker for them.

It’s interesting that the word “Kickoff” has been retained for Friday’s event, which appears to adhere to the schedule from earlier pre-shows. However, the pre-shows on Saturday and Sunday immediately preceding WrestleMania are now referred to as “Countdown To WrestleMania.”

Every night, these programs will begin at 5 p.m. ET and last for two hours, ending at 7 p.m. ET with WrestleMania.

Stand & Deliver comes first on the Saturday schedule, followed by WrestleMania and the Countdown To show. The Slammy Awards will return on Sunday in the meantime.
