Backstage Note On WrestleMania 36 Match Changes, Otis Vs. Dolph Ziggler Still Planned

Backstage Note On WrestleMania 36 Match Changes, Otis Vs. Dolph Ziggler Still Planned
While most of the matches for WrestleMania 36 have seen multiple changes, especially on the SmackDown side, Otis vs. Ziggler has not been changed or pulled, and is still on the card.


The match has not been announced as of this writing, but could be confirmed during Friday's SmackDown on FOX. The Otis vs. Ziggler feud was one of the main points of last Friday's show.

At one point it was reported, via @Wrestlevotes, that WWE had plans to do a mixed tag team match at WrestleMania 36 with Heavy Machinery and Sonya Deville vs. Ziggler, Robert Roode and Mandy Rose. The report from Wrestling Observer Radio did not mention the Otis vs. Ziggler match possibly turning into a six-person match.

In other news on the WrestleMania 36 card, the RAW Tag Team Titles match was also changed. WWE announced on Monday that The Street Profits will defend their titles against Angel Garza and WWE United States Champion Andrade at WrestleMania. It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that original plans for the RAW Tag Team Titles likely had The Authors of Pain challenging for the gold. That match would've been nixed when Rezar went down with a torn right biceps earlier this month. There is still no timetable on Rezar's return, but he was expected to be off TV for a few months, even if he didn't need surgery.

We noted earlier today at this link how Rey Mysterio was considered to challenge Andrade for his title at WrestleMania, but Rey and Dana Brooke were pulled from the WrestleMania card due to being in quarantine over coronavirus concerns. WWE considered several matches for Andrade, but ended up putting him with Garza vs. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins.
