Powell’s POV: The Smackdown Tag Title match was announced on Tuesday. Alexa Bliss has been named the host of the event. Elias is advertised for a performance, and Joan Jett will play Ronda Rousey to the ring. The Kickoff Show begins at 4CT/5ET on WWE Network, and the second hour will also be broadcast on USA Network at 5CT/6ET. The main show begins at 6CT/7ET and is slotted to run 5.5 hours, meaning WrestleMania will be a 7.5 hour show (or more). Join me for live coverage on Sunday beginning with the Kickoff Show, and members will hear an audio review hosted by Jake Barnett and I on Sunday night.
