The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the only one WrestleMania 37 The event will take place over two nights on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. This will be the first live fan-attended show in a full year.
We are two weeks away from show time and this is what WWE has planned so far.
- Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre (WWE Championship)
McIntyre lost his title to The Miz’s Money in the Bank cash thanks to a deal with Lashley. After Bobby took down Miz, McIntyre has established himself as the next in line.
- Sasha Banks (c) vs. Bianca Belair (SmackDown Women’s Championship)
Belair won the Royal Rumble and ultimately decided to challenge Banks for his title at the blue mark. They briefly flirted with the two, perhaps winning the team titles, but once they failed, they focused more on a personal rivalry.
- The New Day (c) vs. AJ Styles & Omos (Raw Tag Team Championship)
This was kind of a meeting. It is noteworthy for being the first real match involving Omos.
They have been arguing back and forth for a while, with Miz stating that he is the star and Bunny is a real star.
- Braun Strowman vs. Shane McMahon
It started when Strowman became enraged at the machine due to unfair treatment and turned into his desire to get revenge on McMahon for calling him stupid.
When Rollins returned from paternity leave, no one embraced his vision. Cesaro made a show of his display of disgust and this led to a fight.
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Edge vs. Daniel Bryan (Universal Championship)
Edge won the Royal Rumble to earn his shot, and has been pushing his dream of regaining the title he never lost (he left it vacant when he had to retire a decade ago). Bryan made his way thanks to a decision by Adam Pearce after a few turns of unfair treatment in Disposal chamber and Fast lane.
- Asuka (c) vs. Rhea Ripley (Raw Women’s Championship)
Initially it looked like this would be Asuka against Charlotte Flair, but the latter was diagnosed with COVID-19 and does not appear on television while she recovers. Instead, Ripley, who had vignettes aired for her main list debut, appeared with a challenge.
- Big E (c) vs. Apollo Crews (intercontinental championship)
Crews has completely turned around, having put E on the shelf for a brief period thanks to ladders falling on his neck. Now, he will have another shot at the title.
- The Demon vs. Randy Orton
Orton burned the guy to death and then resurrected and now they’re going to fight for it.
- Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
Zayn has been driving a conspiracy and Owens is the voice of reason. It’s professional wrestling, so there’s only one way to solve this: by bringing in Logan Paul, of course.
Those are all the matches announced so far. Rey & Dominik Mysterio vs. The Dirty Dawgs for the SmackDown tag team titles looks likely, as does a multi-tag team match for the female tag team titles. Riddle vs. Sheamus could also be happening. It’s unclear if there will be a battle royale for men and women once again this year, but that would complete the card.
