Another Match Planned For WM36, Updated Rumored Card

Another Match Planned For WM36, Updated Rumored Card
We noted before that Beth Phoenix and Natalya are scheduled to team up to challenge the Kabuki Warriors, Kairi Sane & Asuka, for the Women’s Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 36.


Beth's return to RAW on Monday's show in Brooklyn will lead to this feud. WWE announced that Beth is coming to RAW to give an update on the condition of WWE Hall of Famer Edge, and that she may be involved in an angle with Randy Orton. It's possible that they don't announce this match until after March 9 because Asuka and Natalya are both in the RAW Women's Elimination Chamber match.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, another match currently planned is Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler.

We noted that there will be the 3rd Annual WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal and the 7th Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal this year. These matches are done to get other talents on the show, and to bring back female Superstars from the past for the nostalgia pop. It's also expected that some NXT Superstars will be used in the Battle Royals.

Regarding the other five planned matches, one will involve RAW Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins. As of ten days ago, the plan was a singles match with Rollins vs. Kevin Owens, but that could end up being Rollins and Murphy defending their titles against Owens and a partner, or multiple tag teams from the red brand.

There will also be a match with Braun Strowman defending the WWE Intercontinental Title. This could be a multi-man match with guys that have been pushed on SmackDown, such as Sheamus. WWE United States Champion Andrade defending his title against multiple challengers is also likely.

New SmackDown Tag Team Champions John Morrison and The Miz are also scheduled to defend. They could face The New Day in a rematch from WWE Super ShowDown, but there was talk of doing Roode and King Baron Corbin vs. Miz and Morrison.
