Report: NXT Stand & Deliver scheduled as matinee before night one of WWE WrestleMania 38

WWE WrestleMania 38

This year's schedule for WWE WrestleMania 38 week continues to take shape with PWInsider reporting a discussed change regarding NXT that would have seemed unfathomable just a few years ago.

The website said that while this is still preliminary in the planning, this year's NXT Stand & Deliver is currently planned for Saturday, April 2nd on the first night of WrestleMania 38.

While the venue has yet to be determined, the idea is the show would be a matinee running from noon to 3 PM Eastern.

If that happens, that would be the first time since NXT began running events during WrestleMania weekend that one of its centerpiece shows wouldn't have its own night.

PWInsider also reported that the preliminary plan is to air the Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday, April 1st on both Peacock and WWE Network after SmackDown is off the air.

It's unknown if that would mean the ceremony would be taped ahead of time as it was last year. If it went live, it would begin at 9 PM local time in Dallas, Texas.

WWE announced their slate of events earlier this week, but didn't provide specific dates.
