Powell’s POV: WWE has yet to announce brackets for the World Cup tournament. There will be a one-hour Kickoff Show beginning on Friday morning at 10CT/11ET. The actual event will start at 11CT/12ET and the WWE Network schedule page lists a four-hour window. I will be covering the event live as it airs on Friday.
