NBC PRESENTS WRESTLEMANIA(R) XXVI: THE WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERE ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 7 AT 9 PM ET/8 PM CT

NEW YORK, NY -- July 22, 2010 -- For the second consecutive year, NBC and World Wrestling Entertainment(R) will bring the world's biggest pop culture event to network television when WrestleMania XXVI: The World Television Premiere airs Saturday, August 7 at 9 pm ET / 8 pm CT. The special will feature highlights from WrestleMania XXVI set to music from today's hottest acts in one lightning-fast hour of family-friendly programming.

For one night only, NBC will be the one and only place, where television viewers can witness the grandeur and spectacle of the world-wide phenomenon that is Wrestlemania. WWE Superstars such as John Cena(R), Triple H(R), Randy Orton(R), Chris Jericho(R), Rey Mysterio(R) and Edge(R) entertained a sold-out crowd at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. While the University of Phoenix has hosted the Super Bowl, major college bowl games and high profile concerts, nothing compared to the magnitude of WrestleMania's non-stop action and thrilling pyrotechnics and it will be presented in breathtaking high-definition.

The highlight of the NBC special will feature what turned out to be one of the greatest matches in WWE history. Undertaker(R) and Shawn Michaels are two of the most prolific superstars in WWE history, for one of them, this match was his last. More than 72,000 fans were on their feet throughout the emotional rollercoaster of athleticism. The two immortals put on a performance that thrilled the audience and in the end, reduced grown men to tears.

WWE made history at the University of Phoenix Stadium, as WrestleMania XXVI became the highest grossing entertainment event ever held at the stadium. A total of 72,219 fans from all 50 states and 26 countries attended the event, outdrawing Super Bowl XLII (71,101 attendance) in the same building. WWE's annual extravaganza was broadcast around the world on pay-per-view in more than 100 countries and 20 languages.
