WrestleMania is the longest-running pay-per-view event in WWE history. WWE's biggest show has been held in 16 states and in Canada. WrestleMania 33 will take place on Sunday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, the third time in the past 10 years that Florida has hosted the event. This year's card already features 13 announced matches; the record for most matches at a WWE pay-per-view event is 16, at both WrestleMania 4 in 1988 and at WrestleMania 18 in 2002.
- Sunday will be the third one-on-one meeting between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. Goldberg defeated Lesnar at WrestleMania XX in 2004 and at Survivor Series last November. He also eliminated Lesnar in this year's Royal Rumble Match.
- At Fastlane on March 5, Goldberg defeated Kevin Owens to win the Universal Championship. At 50, he is the second-oldest superstar to win a world title in WWE history. Vince McMahon won the WWE Championship in 1999 at the age of 54.
- Goldberg has never lost a one-on-one pay-per-view match (7-0), including a victory against Lesnar in his only previous WrestleMania appearance. Goldberg's two wins since his recent comeback lasted a combined 1:49, and none of his pay-per-view matches lasted more than 15 minutes.
- The WWE Championship has changed hands 21 times at WrestleMania, more than any other title, and a new WWE champion has been crowned in the main event in each of the past four WrestleManias. The last WWE champion to successfully defend the title at WrestleMania was CM Punk at WrestleMania 28 in 2012 against Chris Jericho.
- Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will meet for their third one-on-one match at a pay-per-view event, with Wyatt holding a 2-0 advantage. Wyatt won by forfeit at Backlash last year when Orton could not complete after Wyatt attacked him backstage earlier in the night. Wyatt also pinned Orton at No Mercy one month later thanks to a distraction from a returning Luke Harper.
- Orton earned this WWE Championship match by winning the 2017 Royal Rumble. However, only two of the previous nine Royal Rumble winners have gone on to win a world title at WrestleMania, but none of the past three.
United States Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs. Kevin Owens
- This will be the sixth time the United States Championship has been defended at WrestleMania. The title changed hands in three of the previous five such matches, most recently when John Cena defeated Rusev at WrestleMania 31 in 2015.
- WrestleMania represents the second one-on-one meeting between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens. On Oct. 3, 2015, at the "Live From Madison Square Garden" WWE Network special, Owens defeated Jericho to retain his Intercontinental Championship.
- Jericho will compete in his 14th career WrestleMania match, tying Bret Hart for sixth most in WWE history.
- Owens will become the seventh superstar in WWE history to compete for two different singles titles in his first two WrestleMania matches. The last to do so was John Cena at WrestleMania 20 (he won United States Championship) and WrestleMania 21 (he won WWE Championship).
- The Undertaker is 23-1 at WrestleMania, the most wins in WrestleMania history. No other WWE superstar has even 10 WrestleMania victories entering this year's event (Triple H and John Cena have nine each).
- The Undertaker won his first 21 WrestleMania matches, by far the longest streak in the event's history. Edge is the only other WWE superstar to even win five straight WrestleMania matches. Brock Lesnar broke "The Streak" at WrestleMania 30 by pinning The Undertaker.
- No one has more WrestleMania experience than The Undertaker. His WrestleMania matches have lasted a combined 6 hours, 54 minutes and 53 seconds, the most time spent in the ring at WrestleMania in WWE history.
- Roman Reigns is 3-1 at WrestleMania. The last superstar to win at least four of his first five career WrestleMania matches was Daniel Bryan.
- This will be Triple H's 21st career WrestleMania match, second most all time behind The Undertaker. Triple H made his WrestleMania debut in 1996 at WrestleMania 12 (he lost to the Ultimate Warrior), and he has missed just one WrestleMania event since (he did not compete at WrestleMania 23 because of torn quadriceps).
- Triple H has nine WrestleMania victories, tied with John Cena for second most all time behind The Undertaker (23).
- However, Triple H also hopes to avoid his 12th loss at WrestleMania, which would break a tie with Shawn Michaels and Big Show for most all time.
- WrestleMania will be Rollins' 45th career pay-per-view match. Regardless of Sunday's outcome, only Cena, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will have a better win percentage through 45 pay-per-view matches than Rollins (25-19).
- Styles held the WWE Championship for 140 days, the longest reign since Seth Rollins' 220-day reign in 2015. It was also the fifth-longest reign after a superstar's first WWE Championship win in the past 20 years.
- Shane McMahon will compete in his first one-on-one match since last year's WrestleMania, where he lost to The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match. That contest became famous for McMahon's leap from the top of the cell and subsequent crash through the announce table.
- This will be McMahon's fourth career WrestleMania match and the first time he has competed at consecutive WrestleMania events. His father, Vince McMahon, also competed in four WrestleMania matches, going winless (including loss to Shane at WrestleMania 17).
- John Cena and The Miz haven't met at WrestleMania since 2011, when The Miz defeated Cena in the main event to retain his WWE Championship (with an assist from The Rock). Sunday won't be the first WrestleMania meeting between Nikki Bella and Maryse. At WrestleMania 25 in 2009, both women competed in a 25-Diva battle royal on by "Santina" Marella.
- This will be the sixth mixed tag team match in WrestleMania history and first since WrestleMania 27 in 2011.
Mixed Tag Team Matches - WrestleMania History Winner Defeated WM 27 John Morrison, Trish Stratus & Snooki Dolph Ziggler & Lay-Cool WM 16 Too Cool & Chyna The Radicalz WM 14 Marc Mero & Sable Goldust & Luna Vachon WM 10 Bam Bam Bigelow * Luna Vachon Doink the Clown & Dink the Clown WM 6 Dusty Rhodes & Sapphire Randy Savage & Queen Sherri
- Nikki Bella is 0-3 all-time at WrestleMania, and no woman has ever lost four WrestleMania matches. Most recently, Nikki and her twin, Brie, lost to AJ Lee and Paige in a tag team match at WrestleMania 31. She did not compete at last year's WrestleMania because of a neck injury.
- This will be the eighth fatal four-way championship match in WrestleMania history. Good news for Bayley: The champion(s) successfully retained in each of the previous seven such matches.
- A women's title hasn't changed hands at WrestleMania since Mickie James defeated Trish Stratus for the Women's Championship at WrestleMania 22 in 2006.
- Three of the four women in this match have won both the Raw Women's Championship and NXT Women's Championship. Nia Jax has yet to win a title in her short WWE career.
- Bayley and SmackDown's Alexa Bliss are just the third and fourth women in the past 10 years to defend a championship in their WrestleMania debut. Each of the previous two successfully retained (Charlotte at WrestleMania 32; AJ Lee at WrestleMania 30).
- Sasha Banks looks to win her fourth Raw Women's Championship, which would tie for the fourth-most women's title reigns in WWE history.
- Banks is 0-5 in pay-per-view title matches, with all five losses coming to Charlotte in either one-on-one or triple-threat matches.
- Nia Jax looks to become the first superstar, male or female, to win a championship in his/her WrestleMania debut since Mickie James won the Women's Championship at WrestleMania 22 in 2006.
- The Intercontinental Championship will be up for its 23rd defense at WrestleMania. The title has changed hands 10 times at this event, including each of the past six times it has been defended.
- WrestleMania will be Ambrose's 51st pay-per-view match since the start of 2013, four more than any other WWE superstar.
- Corbin is seeking his first championship in WWE, and the Intercontinental Championship will be his first opportunity to claim one. Corbin is 0-2 in title matches since getting called up to the main roster, both of which were for the WWE Championship. However, this will be his first one-on-one match with a title on the line.
- Corbin is 5-1 in one-on-one pay-per-view matches, winning each of his past five.
While the current iteration of the Cruiserweight Championship has never been defended at WrestleMania, the original version of the title was defended twice at this event, and the champion retained both times. At WrestleMania 19 in 2003, Matt Hardy successfully retained against Rey Mysterio. At WrestleMania 20 in 2004, Chavo Guerrero retained in a 10-man Cruiserweight Open gauntlet match.
- At WrestleMania, Neville will have been Cruiserweight Champion for 63 days, the longest reign since the title was reintroduced last September.
- Neville is 5-0 all-time in one-on-one pay-per-view matches, most recently defeating Jack Gallagher at Fastlane to retain his Cruiserweight Championship.
- Neville has not lost a one-on-one match since Bo Dallas defeated him on Monday Night Raw on Oct. 17, 2016.
- Austin Aries will make his WWE pay-per-view debut at WrestleMania. In the past 15 years, only three superstars have had their first career WWE pay-per-view match occur at WrestleMania and won the match (excluding celebrities).
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
- Sunday will be Big Show's 17th career WrestleMania match, tying Shawn Michaels for fourth most all time.
- Big Show has lost at WrestleMania 11 times, tied with Triple H and Michaels for most in WWE history.
- Big Show was among the final two participants in each of the first two Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royals. He finished runner-up to Cesaro at WrestleMania 30, but won the next year by last eliminating Damien Sandow.
- In each of the past 10 tag team championship matches at WrestleMania, the champions successfully defended the titles. Tag team titles have not changed hands at WrestleMania since Edge and Christian won the belts at WrestleMania 17 in a TLC match against The Dudley Boys and The Hardy Boys.
- This will be the fourth triple-threat tag team title match in WrestleMania history. New champions were crowned in two of the previous three.
- Cesaro and Sheamus are the only team in this match with previous WrestleMania experience, with a combined nine WrestleMania matches between them.
- Sheamus has twice won at WrestleMania, and his first win was third fastest in WrestleMania history.
- Enzo Amore and Big Cass are 0-3 in WWE tag team title matches. They were also 0-2 in tag team title matches during their time in NXT.
SmackDown Women's Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) v. All SmackDown Live women available to compete
- WrestleMania will be Bliss' first title defense since winning the vacant SmackDown Women's Championship on Feb. 21.
- Mickie James seeks her seventh women's championship, which would tie Trish Stratus for most in WWE history.
- Natalya will compete in her fourth-career WrestleMania match. Only Trish Stratus (five) has more among female superstars all time.
- Becky Lynch is 2-0 this year at pay-per-view events, and a win at WrestleMania would give her more such wins than she had in all of 2016 (2-7).
- Carmella is 0-5 all-time at WWE pay-per-view events. The only two women in WWE history to lose each of their first six career pay-per-view matches are Jacqueline and Maryse.
