FITE TV issued the following press release to promote the various events they will be broadcasting during WrestleMania weekend.
It is that time of the year again when pro wrestling fans unite for a weekend-long celebration of pro wrestling in New Orleans. The biggest wrestling gathering is also the busiest weekend on FITE.TV with a schedule featuring 10 live events and special field reports from FITE’s own SoCal Val.
Once again, FITE will be the broadcast partner for some of the best wrestling shows in the lead-up to the Wrestlemania Sunday featuring WWNLive Experience, a live marathon of nine shows spanning over three days, and ROH Supercard of Honor XII set to beat its own record-setting attendance of last year with a huge showdown live from the UNO Lakefront Arena on Saturday, April 7th.
“Thanks to all the partners for putting on such great programs. We’re thrilled to bring the action from the biggest wrestling weekend of the year to pro wrestling fans around the world on the FITE platform”, said Michael Weber, FITE COO.
FITE programming kicks off on Thursday, April 5th with three WWNLive shows highlighted by EVOLVE 102 where Matt Riddle takes on EVOLVE Champion Zack Sabre Jr. for the EVOLVE Championship title.
The action keeps on rolling on Friday, April 6th when WWN will broadcast three more live events on FITE featuring EVOLVE 103 where Matt Riddle faces Japanese powerhouse Daisuke Sekimoto, and the much anticipated WWN Supershow: Mercury Rising featuring top wrestlers from EVOLVE with three championship titles on the line.
Saturday April 7th will feature three more WWN Live shows including the all women’s wrestling event Shimmer 100, the ever-popular Style Battle and the over the top Kaiju Big Battel. FITE is offering the binge-worthy weekend of online pro wrestling to viewers at the exclusive package price of $89.99 for all of the nine WWNLive shows on FITE.
To complete the weekend of wrestling excess on FITE, on Saturday, April 7th, ROH Wrestling is bringing the heat with its Supercard of Honor XII showdown that’s expected to be the largest attended ROH event ever. The Supercard of Honor event will be headlined by a huge main event battle between New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar Kenny Omega and “The American Nightmare” Cody. The match-up has been brewing for months and will top off a jam-packed card already available on FITE pay-per-view for $24.99.
In addition to the live broadcasts, FITE special contributors – pro wrestling stars and journalists – will provide daily scoop and backstage interviews from New Orleans so FITE viewers can join in on the celebrations from anywhere in the world.

Powell’s POV: The bundle idea is a great one in that it gives viewers a chance to catch all of the WWN events at a reasonable price of roughly $10 per event. I have sang the praises of the FITE TV app many times and continue to do so, as they have a ton of pro wrestling content available either via pay-per-view or even free of charge in many cases. For instance, if you don’t get the weekly ROH television show in your market, it’s available for free every Monday on FITE, and that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the pro wrestling content they offer.
