Big Rumor Update on WrestleMania 36, Top Stars Not Wrestling This Year?, More

WWE reportedly has plans for six different women’s matches on the WrestleMania 36 card, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Charlotte Flair vs. WWE NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley is the only official match for The Grandest Stage of Them All as of this writing. Shayna Baszler vs. RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is rumored, as is Naomi vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley. The other matches will be the 3rd annual WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, a tag team match with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka and Kairi Sane, and one other to be named.

There are also plans for the 7th annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to take place this year.

There’s no word yet on what RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Murphy will be doing at WrestleMania, but Rollins is likely headed for a blow-off to the feud with Kevin Owens, either in a singles or a tag team match. There’s also no word on what top SmackDown Superstars like Sheamus and Daniel Bryan will be doing. We should have a better idea of the SmackDown Tag Team Titles match after WWE Super ShowDown when The New Day defends against John Morrison and The Miz as a title change has been rumored.

It’s interesting to note that the current WrestleMania 36 line-up does not have Triple H, Ronda Rousey and WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg on the card, according to the Observer. That could always change, but as of this week they are not booked.

WrestleMania 36 will take place on April 5 from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Kickoff pre-show will likely begin at 5pm ET with the main show beginning at 7pm ET on the WWE Network.
