Update On Matches Airing On Saturday And Sunday, "New" WWE WrestleMania 36 Matches Revealed, More

Update On Matches Airing On Saturday And Sunday WrestleMania
Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss vs. WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Asuka and Kairi Sane is now official for WrestleMania 36. The titles will be on the line.


The title match was made official during tonight's go-home edition of RAW, right before Asuka defeated WWE NXT Superstar Kayden Carter in singles action.

Tonight Zelina Vega also announced that Andrade is currently dealing with a rib injury. Vega ended up announcing NXT Superstar Austin Theory as Andrade's replacement for tonight's tag team match, which saw Owens and The Profits getting the win.

It looks like Theory may be affiliated with Vega moving forward because she announced him as the hottest free agent no more.

Regarding Andrade's rib injury, Vega called it serious but that wasn't what was reported last week when the injury was first revealed. It was noted last week that Andrade's rib injury was "very minor" but bad enough that he was not going to be medically cleared to compete at last week's WrestleMania 36 tapings. Andrade apparently suffered the injury during last week's RAW when he and Garza teamed up to defeat Ricochet and Cedric Alexander. They then participated in a post-match run-in with The Profits.

After the six-man match, WWE then confirmed that Theory will replace Andrade at WrestleMania 36. It will now be Theory and Garza challenging Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins for their RAW Tag Team Titles. There's still no word yet on when Andrade will be back in action, but we will keep you updated.

It's interesting that Theory is already making his WrestleMania debut as he just debuted with the company in August 2019. The former EVOLVE Champion and WWN Champion was signed after participating in a February 2018 tryout at the WWE Performance Center. Theory just lost to Tyler Breeze on last week's NXT episode. He defeated Isaiah "Swerve" Scott back on the March 4 NXT episode, but lost to Tommaso Ciampa on the February 26 episode. The tag team match on tonight's RAW was Theory's main roster debut.

In other news on the WrestleMania card, Kevin Owens cut a promo and noted that his match with Seth Rollins will air during Night One of WrestleMania 36, on Saturday. Furthermore, user Luap sent us a photo on Twitter showing that his local cable guide in Canada lists the following matches for Sunday: Roman Reigns' replacement vs. WWE Universal Champion Bill Goldberg, John Cena vs. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House Match, and Shayna Baszler vs. RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

The taped WrestleMania 36 event is scheduled to air on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 at 7pm ET, via the WWE Network and pay-per-view. It was taped on a closed set with no fans, at the WWE Performance Center and other locations. The Kickoff pre-show will begin at 6pm ET on both nights, and we will have live coverage beginning then.

Despite spoiler updates we've learned since last week's WrestleMania 36 tapings, WWE currently has 16 matches advertised for the big event. It should be noted that the different line-ups for each night have not been made official. We hope to have the finalized line-ups for each night soon. It's believed that at least 8 matches will air on each night.
