WWE Network is readying itself for its biggest event yet—WrestleMania 30.

In the lead-up to the sports entertainment extravaganza that the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will soon host, WWE's streaming service is set to serve as a course in WrestleMania history and a means to build up the pay-per-view more than it ever has been in the past.

Fans can dig into previous WrestleManias, countdown shows and discussions of the most memorable moments from The Grandaddy of Them All so far.

The Superstars headed to New Orleans are set to add to that collection of images. Before that, there is entertainment aplenty to experience on WWE Network's schedule of events (subscription required).

In addition, the newest WWE NXT will feature Sami Zayn vs. Corey Graves, a showdown that has been brewing since Graves called Zayn out the night after NXT Arrival.

Graves then gave Zayn a concussion before his scheduled match against Tyler Breeze.

WWE Superstars will follow. The short show has recently been the home of some of the best Divas matches of the week. 

It has been increasingly entertaining as of late, giving fans reason to add to their weekly WWE diet.

Those in search of more history or nostalgia also have WrestleMania Rewind to turn to, which looks back at the event's biggest moments and matches.

Friday also marks the beginning of the WWE Network showing several of the last few WrestleManias, starting with the one that features Shawn Michaels and Undertaker's first of two consecutive classics.

 

Saturday, April 5 

  • WrestleMania Today (from Friday) - 12 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania Legends - 2 a.m. ET
  • Raw Flashback - 3 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania Legends - 5 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania Rewind - 6 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania 26 - 9 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania 27 - 1 p.m. ET
  • WrestleMania Today (Live) - 6 p.m. ET
  • 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony - 9 p.m. ET

Even the strongest WrestleMania hunger is set to be satiated.

Fans can soak up roundtable discussions of past WrestleManias in the early hours of the morning before seeing two recent WrestleManias in a row. Another new WrestleMania Today then comes up just before one of the weekend's biggest events.

The 2014 class will be welcomed into the Hall of Fame. The WWE Network will broadcast the entirety of the ceremony.

WWE will honor Carlos Colon, Paul Bearer Lita and Scott Hall. The same goes for Jake Roberts, Ultimate Warrior and Mr. T, who will all likely deliver unforgettable speeches.

 

Sunday, April 6 

  • WrestleMania Rewind - 6 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania 28 - 9 a.m. ET
  • WrestleMania 29 - 1 p.m. ET
  • WrestleMania Pre-Show - 5 p.m. ET
  • WrestleMania XXX - 7 p.m. ET
  • WWE Countdown (Infamous Gimmicks) - 11 p.m. ET

Three WrestleMania Rewinds in a row, a two-hour pre-show and the last two WrestleManias fill the day before the event fans have been waiting a year for.

WrestleMania XXX kicks off on Sunday night, offering climaxes to conflicts that have been in the works since SummerSlam in some cases.

This will be the WWE Network's biggest test, as it will get the most amount of traffic it has to date. Should the streaming go smoothly, the service itself will be one of the night's biggest victors.

WWE has begun to change the way fans watch its content. The company has added a wealth of programming to lead into The Showcase of Immortals. There is no shortage of hype to digest. 

That event was once shown on a medium that has since faded away—closed-circuit TV. Should WrestleMania XXX and the Network succeed, we will eventually look at traditional pay-per-view the same way we do closed-circuit TV.
