The KO Show reportedly closing WrestleMania Saturday

Mar 29, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

The KO Show with Kevin Owens and WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin is reportedly scheduled to close Night One of WrestleMania 38.

There have been rumors on WWE closing WrestleMania Saturday with Austin and Owens, but that was up in the air as there was a feeling that WWE would keep Ronda Rousey vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair as the main attraction of Night One. However, Owens and the announcers mentioned The KO Show being the main event of WrestleMania Saturday during last night’s go-home RAW episode.

It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that word going around says Austin and Owens will close WrestleMania Saturday. The other option for the WrestleMania Saturday main event was Rousey vs. Flair, due to Rousey winning the Royal Rumble for the right to headline WrestleMania. At one point WWE billed Rousey vs. Flair as the Night One main event, but that has changed.

Austin is reportedly in great shape for WrestleMania, and it’s believed that the talk show segment with Owens will turn into a brawl, ending with a Stone Cold Stunner to send everyone home from AT&T Stadium.

WrestleMania 38 will take place this Saturday, April 2 and this Sunday, April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below is the current announced card:
