All you need to know in front of the two-night occasion set for Raymond James Stadium in April
WrestleMania has consistently filled in as the zenith occasion in WWE every single spring. The most recent version of the greatest demonstration of the year is simply not too far off as WrestleMania 37 will become the overwhelming focus this end of the week. The greatest stars in the organization perform under the most brilliant of lights, and those lights will positively be the most splendid they've been in some time as WrestleMania 37 will permit fans at a restricted limit into the arena without precedent for more than one year. By and by, similarly as a year ago's WrestleMania 36 which had to happen inside the void WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, the greatest display of the year will go down throughout not one but rather two evenings.
The show will highlight eight titles on the line across 14 matches, including every one of the four of the advancement's top titles being set available to all. On the men's side, all-inclusive hero Roman Reigns will guard his title against Edge and Daniel Bryan with Bobby Lashley shielding the WWE title against previous top dog Drew McIntyre. Likewise, Raw ladies' hero Asuka will guard against Rhea Ripley and SmackDown ladies' boss Sasha Banks will shield her belt against 2021 ladies' Royal Rumble victor Bianca Belair.
WrestleMania 37 goes down Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11 from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The occasion, streaming live on Peacock, will start at 8 p.m. ET on the two evenings with the opening shot shows driving in start at 7 p.m.
Let's take a look at the leaks&rumours which say how the action will play out.
WrestleMania 37 predictions - Night 1
Natalya and Tamina VS Naomi and Lana versus Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke VS Riott Squad (Tag Team Turmoil; champs get a title shot on Night 2)
The female tag team division has been handled with little care for any long-term storytelling beyond the champions. These teams have all been mixed in one way or another in the last few weeks and months, but the only team that seems to have a real drive to be treated as more than an afterthought is Naomi and Lana.
Pick: Naomi and Lana win
Raw Couples Championship: The New Day (c) vs AJ Styles & Omos
This was an odd direction for Raw's tag titles at the event, but it would be even weirder to put the belt on Styles and Omos . The general sense with Omos is that he is not a hard worker, so having him in a more bodyguard role has been the best way to use his incredible size. It feels like I'm setting up more of a division between Styles and Omos than some sort of title run. For that reason alone, expect a New Day win.
Pick: The New Day retains the titles
Seth Rollins vs Cesaro
For years, fans have wanted Cesaro to shine more on WWE programming. WWE has been doing that for most of 2021 and it's a good thing they've done it because it's great as a fired-up babyface, which is something SmackDown needs the most of. Rollins is designed for a role like this, where he can beat credible opponents until it's time to raise the card and get back to the main event. Logic suggests that this is a point where you elevate Cesaro knowing that Rollins will not be affected in the process.
Pick: Cesaro wins
Shane McMahon vs Braun Strowman (Steel Cage)
There are scenarios where McMahon wins this and the rivalry spreads, but the story has already been so eye-catching up to this point that it just has to end in 'Mania'. To be fair, Strowman has really done a fantastic job with the mic when he was unleashed on Raw Talk, and he sold the fight better than any individual segment on Raw, but what has been on television has been unfortunate. This match will likely exceed expectations because McMahon is a psycho and will take a big hit or two. In the end, Braun will look strong and hopefully it will be a surprise success. Pick: Braun Strowman wins
Bad Bunny and Damian Priest vs The Miz and John Morrison
There are times when celebrities can show up on a show and not pass, but I'm not sure fans realize how committed Bad Bunny is to make this work. Not only has he reportedly moved part-time to Orlando so he could actively train at the WWE Performance Center for the past few months, but he has also appeared on most editions of Raw since the Royal Rumble. WWE is always criticized for having an older-leaning audience, so give them credit for going out and finding a young non-wrestling superstar to help grow the business. Bad bunnyHe can have a tremendous celebrity debut, and that only helps Priest, who has a WrestleMania match after only a few months on the roster. It's probably Morrison, not the two-time WWE champion The Miz, who takes the fall, but in the end, Bad Bunny is gone.
Pick: Bad Bunny and Damian Priest win
SmackDown Women's Championship: Sasha Banks (c) vs Bianca Belair
The build of this match has been largely disappointing, but there is likely nothing disappointing in the ring. These are two special athletes with great personalities and there is very little doubt that they will deliver on the big stage. There's no reason this isn't Belair's big moment. It's the right time to pull the trigger and establish her as one of the elite women on the WWE roster. It will also be welcome to leave Banks' somewhat underwhelming title in the past and begin a new reign with Belair that can hopefully build some momentum.
Pick: Bianca Belair wins the title
WWE Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) vs Drew McIntyre
WrestleMania is that show every year where faces go crazy more often. There are places for heels to win on the two-night card, but a year after trying to put McIntyre on Brock Lesnar in front of a sold-out Raymond James Stadium, WWE now has a chance to do it on Lashley, whose popularity is growing. constantly. WWE victimized themselves by failing to put the title on Lashley much earlier on the schedule, which would have led to a long reign and an understanding fan base when they decided to put the leash back on McIntyre . Because LashleyJust won the title after a 16 year journey, he feels unfortunate and a little sad that he has to give it up so quickly. I just don't see WWE squandering this opportunity. Remember: online fans are just a subsection of the people who watch WWE . While the sentiment here is that the title should be kept around Lashley's waist , McIntyre will still get some long-awaited big pop after carrying Raw on his broad shoulders for the past year.
Pick: Drew McIntyre wins title
