It's the biggest wrestling event of the year, and you can witness all the action and drama with this Wrestlemania 38 live stream guide. Over 100,000 wrestling fans will be piling into the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas tonight, eager to see loads of thrilling matches until Universal Champion Roman Reigns faces off against WWE Champion Brock Lesnar in the main event on night two.

Excitement has also reached a fever pitch following the news that "Stone Cold" Steve Austin might make an appearance in the ring, in addition to celebrities like Johnny Knoxville and Logan Paul. Other significant wrestlers on the card include Seth "Freakin" Rollins, who will be paired against a mystery opponent (rumor has it that Cody Rhodes will be making his return to the ring with this match), and Becky Lynch, who will be battling it out with long-term rival Bianca Belair once again. 

It's professional wrestling, so there are tons of characters, backstories, and so many feuds that it'll make your head spin. But for fans of the sport, Wrestlemania 38 is destined to be a night to remember. American fans will get to watch the event live on the streaming service Peacock, but you still have options if you're in a different country. The first match will begin at 8pm ET / 5pm CT / 1am GMT on Saturday, immediately following the kick-off show.

Peacock TV - $4.99/month or $9.99/month for ad-free streaming (opens in new tab)

NBC's streaming service Peacock is the official home of Wrestlemania 38, so that's the only way you can stream the event in the United States. Although there is a free plan, you won't get access to WWE matches and other live sports unless you upgrade to Peacock's ad-supported Premium plan ($4.99/month), or go big with the ad-free Plus plan for $9.99/month.

In addition to WWE programming, Peacock has an enormous streaming library with everything from NBC classics like The Office to modern hit series like Yellowstone. 

Unfortunately, the streaming service is only available in the United States (for now), so WWE fans in other countries will have to either pay more to live stream through the WWE Network or access their Peacock account with a VPN.
