WrestleMania 35 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network. It’s the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history.

On Monday morning, the WWE announced travel packages for the weekend and in the details, there were some changes that surfaced regarding NXT TakeOver and Wrestlemania AXXESS.

First up is NXT TakeOver as WWE has officially changed the name from ‘NXT Takeover: Brooklyn’ to ‘NXT Takeover: New York.’ The ‘Brooklyn’ series has been the name for the past 4 years at the Barclays Center during SummerSlam weekend. This show goes down on April 6th in New York City, NY and is considered the biggest special for the yellow brand of the year.

Regarding Wrestlemania AXXESS, WWE has changed up the schedule as in the past it would run from Thursday until Sunday morning on Wrestlemania weekend. Starting in 2019, it will now be running from Friday, April 5th, 2019 to Monday, April 8th, 2019, which means that there will be AXXESS sessions on Monday after WrestleMania. WWE never did this in the past.

Travel packages go on sale next Monday while tickets to WrestleMania go on sale on Friday, November 16th.
