Some planned WWE WrestleMania matches may not happen

Every match that has been announced for WWE WrestleMania 36 is locked in and will happen but Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there are some matches not yet announced that still up in the air.

Rey Mysterio defeated United States Champion Andrade last Monday on Raw so that seemingly indicates that they will wrestle at Mania. However, Meltzer reports that the match is not locked in for Mania.

WWE announced this week that the New Day will face The Usos next week on SmackDown and the winning team will get a Tag Team Title shot at WrestleMania. That match was not set in stone as of Thursday but it looks like Vince McMahon made his decision on adding that match to Mania sometime within the last 48 hours.

Another match that is still in the air is Asuka and Kairi Sane defending against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross and Natalya and Beth Phoenix. Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss has been announced for next week’s SmackDown but there was no mention of what they will be doing at WrestleMania.

It looks like plans for the Intercontinental Championship match are locked in because WWE announced that Drew Gulak will face Shinsuke Namakura next week on SmackDown. The stipulation is if Gulak wins then Daniel Bryan will get a title shot at WrestleMania.

Meltzer noted that Raw Tag Team Title match plans are not etched in stone yet for WrestleMania. As previously noted, the battle royals will not happen since it would be a bad idea to have so many wrestlers in the ring at the same time.

Whatever the plans might be for unannounced matches, they will be locked in very soon as WWE is taping episodes of SmackDown, Raw and NXT in the coming days and WrestleMania will be taped on Wednesday and Thursday.

Another issue WWE may have is getting one of their biggest stars into the United States for Mania. Click here for more on the story.
