With less than 3 weeks left, we’re nearing the finish line on the road to WrestleMania 35. Though there are still matches to be added in the coming weeks, we have a list of those that have already been announced.
As of today (Wednesday, March 20th), the WrestleMania 35 match card stands as follows:
Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Tournament Winner
Cruiserweight Championship Match
As Buddy Murphy has steamrolled his way through the Cruiserweight Division since becoming champion, a tournament was set to determine Murphy’s opponent at WrestleMania. This man would have to fight his way through the rest of the division, plus an NXT opponent or two, to earn his place against the champ.
The tournament is still underway, but the contenders have come down to Tony Nese and Cedric Alexander.
Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch
Raw Women’s Championship Match
This match was originally set between Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch, as Lynch was the winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble Match. Vince McMahon had other plans, however, replacing Becky with Charlotte Flair. At Fastlane, Becky Lynch was given the opportunity to regain her place in the Women’s Championship match – all she had to do was defeat Charlotte Flair.
With only one good leg, things didn’t look promising for Becky. Luckily, Becky pushed Ronda Rousey to the point that she ensured Lynch emerged victorious just so she can get her hands on The Man at Mania.
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins
Universal Championship Match
As he was the winner of the 2019 Royal Rumble match, Seth Rollins had his choice of WrestleMania opponents: Brock Lesnar or Daniel Bryan. Though Daniel Bryan certainly would have made an exciting opponent for Rollins, The Kingslayer has made it his personal mission to defeat The Beast and bring the Universal Championship home.
No Holds Barred Match
Triple H has been dying to get his hands on Batista ever since The Animal attacked Ric Flair at his 70th birthday party, and at WrestleMania, he will finally get his wish. Batista has been demanding that things are done “his way,” but Triple H was the one to pick the stipulation: No Holds Barred.
Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin
Olympian, Superstar, Purveyor of the Three I’s, Kurt Angle announced that he will be competing in his final match at WrestleMania 35. On Raw, he announced that he had chosen Baron Corbin as his opponent, as Corbin had done his best to make Angle’s last run in WWE as difficult as possible.
Although everyone, including us, had hoped that John Cena would be the one to retire Angle, Corbin’s popularity and dedication cannot be discounted, and we’re sure he’s honored to have been given this opportunity.
The Miz vs. Shane McMahon
Poor Miz. After weeks spent trying to convince Shane McMahon that they would make a good team, Shane agreed to become half of the greatest tag team in the world, only to turn on Miz at Fastlane.
On SmackDown Live, Shane explained his actions, stating that he was the best in the world all on his own and didn’t need The Miz
AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton
AJ Styles and Randy Orton’s feud has been growing over the past few weeks, leading to Styles challenging Orton to a match at Mania on SmackDown.
This one technically isn’t official yet, because Randy neither agreed nor declined, but it’s only a matter of time before Orton accepts, as Styles has been doing his best to shatter Orton’s pride.
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
As always, there will be an Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal held at some point during the show. The winner of which will receive bragging rights, as well as the Andre the Giant trophy.
Braun Strowman announced that he will be participating in the match, but the rest of the competitors are still unknown.
Asuka vs. Fatal 4-Way Winner
SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match
Asuka and her SmackDown Live Women’s Championship have been out of the spotlight the last few weeks, but at long last, we have an idea of what she will be doing at WrestleMania.
Next week’s episode of SmackDown Live will feature a Fatal 4-Way match between Naomi, Carmella, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville, the winner of which will go on to face Asuka for the championship at WrestleMania.
Samoa Joe (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
United States Championship Match
Rey Mysterio and Samoa Joe have been involved in several multi-man matches since Mysterio’s return to WWE, creating an entertaining rivalry between the two.
Joe and Mysterio will get a chance to put their skills to the test one-on-one at WrestleMania when Mysterio gets a shot at Samoa Joe’s United States Championship.
