Speaking of WrestleMania 33, we previously reported that current champion AJ Styles is expected to drop the WWE World Title to John Cena at this sunday's WWE Royal Rumble or shortly after. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports today that neither Kevin Owens or AJ Styles are expected to be champions headed into this year’s WrestleMania event.
It's also been confirmed that the WWE Title will be defended at February's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, inside the Chamber. The RAW brand has the Fastlane pay-per-view in February.
Here are the matches that will most-likely take place on the card:
* Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar
* Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns
* Triple H vs. Seth Rollins
* Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens
* Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton
* Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal
* Charlotte vs. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax
There are rumors on Orton winning the Rumble match and Wyatt winning the Chamber match, setting up their match for the WWE Title at WrestleMania. The Observer notes that if that does not happen, it's because plans changed.
It's likely that either Taker vs. Reigns, Jericho vs. Owens or Goldberg vs. Lesnar would be for the WWE Universal Title but Owens vs. Jericho makes more sense as the United States Title match as Jericho currently holds that belt.
WWE NXT Superstar Samoa Joe is expected to be called up soon with a push and Joe vs. Cena at WrestleMania has been pitched. There have also been rumors of Styles vs. Shane McMahon.
