WrestleMania 35 is coming up on April 7th, but WWE still needs to work out a few key pieces to form the event. It looks like we will see some big changes and with WWE’s booking, you never know what will happen. However, we have some very good ideas.
WWE got off to a slower start this year than in previous years when booking the show of shows. Of course, the Royal Rumble match winner Seth Rollins claimed his Universal Title Match against Brock Lesnar on the day after the Royal Rumble and Becky Lynch called out Ronda Rousey. However, only one of those matches is currently intact.
There are a couple of matches booked for WrestleMania right now including Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair, but that is full expected to change. There are also a few programs in the works and fans can certainly see the writing on the walls as well.
We have decided to make things a lot easier and put out all of the matches that are rumored/booked for this year’s WrestleMania card. At this point, we have a much better idea about what to expect as well.
Let’s get some basic ones out of the way first. The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal are expected for the show of shows once again. These matches give plenty of WWE Superstars a chance to perform on the grandest stage of them all and it is also a way for WWE to gain some extra attention by booking some lesser-known talents from foreign countries so they can gain exposure and pop the local markets.
The Boss n Hug Connection vs Team Bestie
Sasha Banks and Bayley won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles and everyone was happy for them. They also threw down a pretty big hint even before the new tag team titles were announced that they wanted to face Trish Stratus and Lita at WrestleMania. That match seems to be very likely at this point.
Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins
Rollins won the 2019 Royal Rumble match and claimed his match against The Beast Incarnate on Raw the next night. This match is still on the card even though Seth Rollins isn’t cleared to fully compete just yet. The reason why WWE has given The Architect time off was so he can rest up for his WrestleMania match.
Rey Mysterio vs Andrade
Mysterio and Andrade tore the house down on several occasions on SmackDown Live and after R-Truth was able to retain the US Title last week, Andrade jumped Mysterio to continue their feud. A hair vs mask match has been rumored between these two. Andrade’s hair has become much longer in recent months and would make a bigger prize for Mr. 6-1-9 to claim. The fact that WWE is marketing Mysterio’s mask doesn’t make it likely he will be losing if that is the case, but we have been surprised by their booking before.
Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch
This match is something that WWE is building toward. It is highly expected to see Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair added to WWE Fastlane by the time the pay-per-view rolls around next Sunday. That Fastlane match could very well see Lynch defeat Flair and earn a spot in the Raw Women’s Title match which is also expected to main event the entire evening.
Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston was set for a WWE Title opportunity at WWE Fastlane. Then Vince McMahon changed up the plans once again. Kevin Owens was going to be Daniel Bryan’s Mania opponent and it appears that McMahon simply switched the two around. This might be frustrating for Kofi Kingston’s fans, but it could also be nothing but good news. Because if KofiMania continues to run wild, he will not only get his WrestleMania moment, but also possibly bring home the WWE Title for The New Day.
The Miz vs Shane McMahon
The Miz and Shane McMahon’s partnership was started as The A-Lister used their common bond of parental approval to soften him up. Now the two are former SmackDown Tag Team Champions after winning the titles at the Royal Rumble and losing them the next month to The Usos. McMiz has another chance to win the tag team titles at WWE Fastlane, however, this could also be a perfect location for Shane McMahon to turn uber-heel and betray The Miz in front of the A-Lister’s hometown crowd in Cleveland Ohio. Since the next step after that is the show of shows, it only stands to reason that these two could battle in MetLife Stadium.
Asuka vs Lacey Evans
Vince McMahon sees something big in Lacey Evans. Her backstory mixed with her ability to perform in the ring and her classic look is very attractive to McMahon and he sees big dollar signs. It is said that Vince McMahon considers Evans one of the future top three female Superstars in the company after Ronda Rousey’s exit. Therefore, Lacey Evans’ usual gimmick of coming out just to be noticed on WWE television could translate into a SmackDown Women’s Title match against Asuka at WrestleMania.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Final
Buddy Murphy is the WWE Cruiserweight Champion and holding onto his title very well. He recently took some time off for vacation because he can. After all, he won’t likely be defending his title again until WrestleMania rolls around. There is currently a big tournament going on during 205 Live to determine his opponent for the event.
Triple H vs. Batista
This match is something that Batista wanted to happen years ago, but Triple H and Stephanie McMahon didn’t know how big the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie would be so they passed on the match with a movie release tie-in. Now it is only a matter of time before The Animal vs The Game is made official for WrestleMania.
The Usos vs. The Hardy Boyz
The Usos’ WWE contracts are up at the end of April. The company does not want them leaving either. Therefore, they made Jimmy and Jey Uso SmackDown Tag Team Champions. It appears that The Usos will roll through Fastlane and into WrestleMania as champions. With the Hardy Boyz recently returning to the fold as team and dropping a big hint that they are after the blue brand’s tag team titles, it seems like this could be an excellent WrestleMania moment (and possible send-off) for The Usos. Hopefully, this match won’t be a kickoff show encounter.
