WrestleMania 36 is now tantalisingly close. Yes, the biggest event of the 2020 WWE calendar starts today and continues on Sunday – and we're here to tell you how to catch all of the action live. This year's Showcase of the Immortals may have a slightly different look and feel to it but it's still set to be a PPV spectacular unlike any other. Don't miss a second of the action – here's how to watch a free WrestleMania 36 live stream this weekend from anywhere in the world.
The main talking point heading into tonight's first bell is that WrestleMania 36 will be held behind closed doors for the first time in its illustrious history. Indeed, in 2020 it will take place over two nights and feature multiple locations – another first. The WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida is the main 'venue', after the event was moved from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa due to restrictions on mass gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.
There have been a few last minute changes to the WrestleMania 36 card, too, after Roman Reigns pulled out of his Universal Championship showdown against Goldberg over coronavirus concerns – Braun Strowman is being teased as a replacement for the clash. Elsewhere, Dana Brooke and Rey Mysterio are also in quarantine and will miss the event.
The silver lining for WWE fans is that WrestleMania 36 will be host by none other than Rob Gronkowski, the NFL legend and former New England Patriots star. Gronk won three Super Bowl rings and earned five Pro Bowl appearances over the course of his injury-shortened career, retiring from the game as the best tight-end of all-time in the eyes of many.
Other highlights of the WrestleMania 36 card include The Undertaker vs AJ Styles in a Boneyard brawl, and an old school grudge match between Edge and Randy Orton. The headline fight of the night, though, is the WWE Championship showdown between current title-holder Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre.
Rrrready to rrrrumble yet? We'll tell you the best ways to live stream WrestleMania 36 below – and for FREE! Read on for everything you need to know about the big WWE pay-per-view this weekend.

Live stream WWE WrestleMania from outside your country
Scroll down if you're reading this in the US, Canada, UK or Australia, as we've outlined all your WrestleMania 36 live stream options below. If you're from Japan and want to see the Kabuki Warriors defend their WWE Women's Tag Team belts against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross, then hop right over to the WWE Network – where a free trial offer awaits you (more on that below).
But if you're unlucky enough to be in a country where the only way to catch the wrestling is through expensive PPV or via some dodgy, illegal stream you've found in the less salubrious corners of the internet, you may well discover that your home coverage is geo-blocked where you are. If that's the case, you'll want to use a clever bit of software called a VPN so you can watch a more reliable and secure WWE live stream.
Free WrestleMania 36 live stream: watch on the WWE Network
How to live stream WrestleMania 36: watch in the US for free
If you’re watching from the United States, then subscribing to the WWE Network is your best bet as it is the most cost effective way to watch, as its free 1-month trial will let you catch all this weekend's action without dropping a dime.
Pay-per-view providers like Dish and Xfinity are also showing WrestleMania 36 on TV, but pricing is set at $59.99-69.99 – a big chunk of your toilet paper stockpile budget. And if you're after more than just ridiculous costumes and trash talk, don't forget that Disney Plus is currently offering a FREE 7-day trial and boasts loads of great content – from The Simpsons to Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar.
Also, remember that if the WWE Network's free trial isn't available where you are, you can always use a VPN to access the service just like you would from home.
How to live stream WrestleMania for free in Canada
As is the case in the WWE’s home country, the WWE Network is also the cheapest, most convenient place to watch WrestleMania 36 in Canada. However, you could choose to go with SaskTel, Shaw or BellMTS – but expect to pay similar prices to PPV providers in the US.
And anyone outside of Canada wanting to live stream WrestleMania 36 like they would from the Great White North should consider trying a VPN to access the services and coverage they normally would with a 6-pack of Moosehead to hand.

How to live stream WrestleMania 36 for free in Japan
The Kabuki Warriors are the reigning WWE Women's Tag Team Champions and will defend their belts at WrestleMania 36 against challengers Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. That means wrestling fans in Japan have every reason to want to get up early on Sunday and Monday morning, with WrestleMania action set to start at 8am Japanese Standard Time on both days.
The WWE Network has been available in Japan for the last few years and, given its free trial offer, is the most affordable way to get a WrestleMania live stream in Japan. Local PPV options certainly exist – check your provider, but DMM.com, J:Com and Sukachan are likely all offering the event – but don't necessarily represent the best value for money.
