The second week of the Road to WrestleMania 32 is essentially over with Monday Night Raw passing and the SmackDown taping now complete. Well, after this week, there are still only three matches confirmed for the big pay-per-view (PPV), but there are plenty being rumored. Two tag matches, the Divas Title match, and a huge ladder match look to be on the way to the card soon.
The Hell in a Cell match between Shane McMahon and The Undertaker is set and in place even if it doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Deadman returned on Raw and told Vince McMahon that his son’s blood would be on his hands, and the match is set and confirmed.
The main event is also set as Triple H will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against Roman Reigns. It’s kind of confusing what may end up happening in this match as the fans are still not on board with super-babyface Roman Reigns, but they did enjoy Attitude Era-Triple H coming out last week.
The third match in place has Dean Ambrose taking on Brock Lesnar in a No Holds Barred Street Fight. Some are not entirely not sure this one is that well-balanced, but the “Street Fight” aspect of things is really going to work to Ambrose’s advantage.
From there, no other matches have been confirmed, but many more will need to be added in order to fill a five-hour event.
For a while, it was rumored that there would be a triple threat match for the Divas Title currently held by Charlotte. WWE‘s website recapped Monday Night Raw and that included the double-pin in the match between Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch to become the number one contender.
The SmackDown taping on Tuesday saw Charlotte attack both women in the rematch which brought no winner, and pretty much sets the triple threat in stone.
Last year at WrestleMania 31, there was a huge six-man ladder match for the Intercontinental Title and it was won by Daniel Bryan. It appears as if WWE may go the same route this year, and it all began with the oddly short Dolph Ziggler/The Miz match from Raw, according to WrestleZone.
On SmackDown, Ziggler will get the win back in very much the same fashion and same amount of time. It is believed that Kevin Owens will put his Intercontinental Title on the line in a ladder match, or it could end up being Kalisto putting his United States Title up for grabs.
On Monday Night Raw, Bubba Ray Dudley picked up a big win over Jey Uso. According to Wrestling Inc., the Dudley Boyz will attack The Usos and threaten to put them through tables on SmackDown, but end up holding back.
It obviously seems as if WWE is setting up for the Dudley Boyz to take on The Usos at WrestleMania, but a stipulation of some sort will be added. When it’s time to confirm the match, it looks as if it may be a TLC match.
Speaking of tag team matches, another is being built up as well, and it’s kind of out of nowhere. At first, it seemed as if The New Day would be starting a program with the League of Nations, but that appears to have been scrapped. Now, The New Day is beginning a feud with a brand new tag team.
They started out as enemies, but AJ Styles and Chris Jericho now have formed the team of Y2-AJ, and look to go after the WWE Tag Team Titles. On Raw, they defeated The New Day and Styles will take on Kofi Kingston on Thursday while a tag title match is set for next week’s Raw.
Don’t expect a title change just yet. Look for something to happen that prolongs the feud and sets up a title match at WrestleMania 32.
The Divas are heading toward a huge triple threat match for the Divas Championship currently held by Charlotte. Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch ended Monday’s number one contender’s match in a double-pin and happenings on SmackDown will further lead to the triple threat being confirmed soon.
So, that has the current card for WrestleMania 32 looking like this:
- WWE Title: Triple H (c) vs Roman Reigns – Confirmed
- Hell in a Cell: The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon – Confirmed
- No Holds Barred Street Fight: Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar – Confirmed
- WWE Tag Team Titles: The New Day (c) vs. Y2-AJ
- Divas Title: Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch
- Six-Man Ladder Match (IC or US Title)
- TLC Match: The Dudley Boyz vs. The Usos
- 3rd Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Many more matches will be confirmed soon and the rumors are continuing to swirl, but a lot of questions are left unanswered. Will Goldberg actually return? Is John Cena going to be back in time? What will WWE do with The Wyatt Family? So much is unknown for WrestleMania 32, but only a month remains and the questions have to be answered soon.
