WrestleMania XXXIII will be the 33rd annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by WWE, to be held on April 2, 2017 at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. It will be the second WrestleMania hosted at the Orlando Citrus Bowl after WrestleMania XXIV and the third to be held in the state of Florida, after the aforementioned WrestleMania XXIV in 2008 and WrestleMania XXVIII in 2012. It will also be the seventh time the event will be held outdoors after WrestleManias IX, XXIV, XXVI, XXVIII, XXIX, and XXXI. The New Day will be the official hosts.
WrestleMania will feature professional wrestling matches that involve different wrestlers from pre-existing feuds, plots, and storylines that will be played out on WWE's primary television programs. Wrestlers will portray villains or heroes as they follow a series of events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.
The tickets went on sale on November 18, 2016, with individual tickets costing $38 to $2,130. On October 31, 2016, traveling packages with accommodation ranging from $950 to $5,900 per person were sold.
The card will include matches resulting from scripted storylines and have results predetermined by WWE on the Raw and SmackDown brands. Storylines are produced on WWE's weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, and 205 Live, the latter of which is cruiserweight-exclusive.
The winner of the Royal Rumble match traditionally earns a world championship match in the main event of WrestleMania. This year, it was for either Raw's WWE Universal Championship or SmackDown's WWE Championship. Randy Orton won the 2017 match, the second time in his career, and will challenge for his brand's WWE Championship at WrestleMania 33. On the January 31 episode of SmackDown Live, Orton warned WWE Champion John Cena, who had just won the championship at the Royal Rumble, that if he manages to retain the title at Elimination Chamber on February 12, he will be taking the title from him at WrestleMania. Orton and Bray Wyatt then faced Cena and Luke Harper where Orton pinned Cena. Orton is scheduled to face Cena on the February 7 episode.
At WrestleMania XX in 2004, Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar in their first match against each other. Both left the company after the event, but Lesnar returned in 2012. After twelve years, Goldberg returned in 2016 and immediately began a feud with Lesnar, thanks in part due to the WWE 2K17 video game, which featured Lesnar on the cover and Goldberg as the pre-order bonus. This culminated in a match at Survivor Series, in which Goldberg humiliated Lesnar by defeating him in one minute and twenty-six seconds. Both then competed in the Royal Rumble match; Lesnar entered at number twenty-six and dispatched of several other wrestlers before Goldberg came out at number twenty-eight and once again humiliated Lesnar by quickly eliminating him from the match; Goldberg was soon after eliminated by The Undertaker. The following night on Raw, Lesnar and Paul Heyman appeared and challenged Goldberg to one final match at WrestleMania 33. On the following Raw, Goldberg accepted Lesnar's challenge to officially set up the match. Before their match, Goldberg will be facing WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens for the championship at Fastlane on March 5.
