A Running List of All WrestleMania Weekend 2023 Happenings in Los Angeles (WWE, ROH, NJPW, Indie Shows and more)

- By Rob Pasbani

Columnist Rob Pasbani keeps you up to date on all the events happening during WrestleMania weekend.

It's crazy to think that WrestleMania weekend is upon us. For wrestling fans, the weekend has grown from one day to six days of events in what has become a South-by-Southwest-like event for pro wrestling. It's not just WWE coming to town, a slew of the top independent promotions from all over the world will get together all over Los Angeles to offer fans a taste of their brand of pro wrestling.

All times are Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

The big wrestling convention happening all weekend, with signings and memorabilia is WrestleCon – which will have a slew of notable superstars appearing at autograph sessions. The event happens at the Biltmore in Downtown LA.

WWE will also be hosting their WWE WrestleMania Superstore at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Thursday through Monday. More info here.

Big thanks to Voices of Wrestling for a lot of the info below.
