WWE Sets Wrestlemania Kickoff Show and Panelists

WWE announced today that the Wrestlemania kickoff show will start at 5PM EST on April 2.  The show proper will kick off at 7PM EST.  While no matches were announced for the kickoff show, the company did establish the panelists for the show.  Renee Young, Booker T, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and Shawn Michaels will be the panelists for the show.

Bill Says:  This is the same crew that worked Royal Rumble’s kickoff show as well.  Michaels was replaced at one point by Peter Rosenberg, but no indication was given of a similar switch here.  We will have all of your Wrestlemania coverage throughout the week and into Sunday, including the Kickoff Show during the 5PM EST hour as it airs on WWE Network.
