WrestleMania 35 is coming to East Rutherford New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium on April 7th. The easy part is booking the venue at this point, and now WWE needs to stack a show worthy of the WrestleMania name.
There are plenty of options available, but a few big hints and rumors have already been dropped that could help us predict at least a few top matches for the upcoming Mania card.
There are likely to be even more matches for WrestleMania than WWE TLC’s dozen seeing how it is usually given a few more hours of broadcast time. The undercard matches can be arranged as time goes on, but a few marquee matches could already be penciled in.
We’ve gathered up the most likely matches for WrestleMania next year that have been bouncing around. You never know what can happen in WWE especially while Vince McMahon is in charge. So please keep that in mind as you enjoy this list.
Triple H vs Batista
Evolution had their big reunion for one-night-only at SmackDown 1000 and they dropped a huge hint on the WWE Universe when Batista said that Triple H hasn’t defeated him yet. This caused The Game to give Batista a look as if to say, “We’ll just see about that.”
At this point, Triple H is injured, therefore he’s not cleared to compete. He tore his pectoral muscle off the bone at the WWE Crown Jewel event pretty early in his main event match with Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker and Kane. Since then he’s been rehabbing his injury.
Triple H is working hard and hopes to be cleared as soon as possible. Whether that means a WrestleMania match against Batista is in the cards or not is another story, but it’s very interesting.
Of course, even if Triple H can’t receive medical clearance in time, Randy Orton is still around and placing him against Batista would make a lot of sense as well. They were both in Evolution so WWE could continue that story. However, Orton vs Batista might not have the same appeal that The King Of Kings vs The Animal would.
