WWE has announced a kickoff fan event for WrestleMania 40 next Friday in Philadelphia.

The April 5th event, much like the one that took place in Las Vegas in February, will feature live appearances from talent. It will be unticketed and free for fans to attend.  

So far billed to appear are Paul Levesque, Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Gunther, and Sami Zayn.

Hosted by Michael Cole and Pat McAfee, the event will take place outside the Wells Fargo Center at 5 pm ET and will also be streamed live in the US on Peacock, and on the WWE Network internationally.

The Wells Fargo Center hosts SmackDown and the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony later that night.
