WWE WrestleMania 36 will take place on Apr. 5 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT live on the WWE Network with the kickoff show beginning at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT. With only seven matches declared official for this WWE event, the following will address match card predictions as well as the winners for each match almost three weeks away from the grandest stage of them all.
WrestleMania 36! The Showcase of the Immortals and potentially the very first WrestleMania without a live audience. Nonetheless, there are many exciting bouts to look forward to for the biggest PPV of the year. Per WWE’s official website, the following is a preview of the official WWE WrestleMania 36 Match Card thus far:
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Drew McIntyre
Roman Reigns (c) vs. Goldberg
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
Raw Women’s Championship
Becky Lynch (c) vs. Shayna Baszler
NXT Women’s Championship
Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins
The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles
Just like in WWE WrestleMania 35 last year, it is foreseeable that the two battle royals are usually locks for the kickoff show. Let’s start predicting the card with the women’s battle royal, which will hopefully be renamed the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal.
Chyna Memorial Battle Royal [Free-For-All]
Nia Jax should be returning soon and winning the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal would set her up for a championship opportunity post-WrestleMania. Thanks to her immense Royal Rumble experiences and All-Women’s Evolution PPV battle royal victory, winning this battle royal at WrestleMania should not be a tough task for the irresistible force.
As a former Raw Women’s Champion, she should be in the title picture upon her return and a rivalry with the likes of Shayna Baszler, Rhea Ripley, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, or even revisiting her memorable face-breaker rivalry with Becky Lynch would do wonders for her return to in-ring action. Dominant superstars should win these battle royals, and Jax is nothing but dominant.
Prediction: Nia Jax
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal [Free-For-All]
Speaking of dominance, it seems that Bobby Lashley’s storyline with Lana and Rusev has been dropped and he can finally focus on his singles career. Since he has no clear rival on the road to WrestleMania 36, winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal for the first time in his career will set his dominance in the right direction and set him up for a championship opportunity post-WrestleMania.
As a former United States and Intercontinental Champion, Bobby Lashley should be in the main card title picture by now and be in rivalries with the likes of Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns, Goldberg or more importantly Brock Lesnar. He has been reportedly requesting a match with Lesnar ever since he returned to the WWE and his momentum as of late won’t warrant a match with the Beast Incarnate unless he secures a big win, like this battle royal.
Prediction: Bobby Lashley
