The time is getting ever closer to WrestleMania 32, and there are now eight matches confirmed and in place for the card. Still, more will be coming for the big four-hour event in early April, and it is expected that more will be added on Monday Night Raw. Roman Reigns is back and has his sights set on Triple H, but Dolph Ziggler looks to get another shot at being on the biggest wrestling pay-per-view of the year.
WWE.com has released their preview for Raw on Monday, and there are a few noticeably absent names. The five points for this week don’t mention Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, The Undertaker, or Shane McMahon.
According to the WWE Live Events page, three of the four aren’t even scheduled to be there on Monday night. Ambrose will be there, but don’t expect Lesnar until next week for the go-home show.
One of the more interesting points of this week’s preview is that Dolph Ziggler is still not on the WrestleMania 32 card. He fought Triple H last week for a shot at getting any match he wanted, but he lost to The Game. Still, all is not lost.
WWE.com states that fans shouldn’t be surprised “if the former World Heavyweight Champion attempts to instigate his way into another all-or-nothing bout on Raw.” One other notable thing is that the title of Ziggler’s section is “ZigglerMania” which goes right along with Kevin Owens’ recent phrase of “KOMania.”
Friends no more
It should be no surprise that Divas Champion Charlotte isn’t friends with Becky Lynch any longer and certainly has no love for Sasha Banks. Still, the three do have to have respect for one another and their extreme talent and skill.
They’ve each been dealing with other divas here and there, but look for all three of them to return focus to each other on Raw and their big match at WrestleMania 32.
Still the B.A.D.dest
Naomi and Tamina Snuka may have found themselves an ally in the “Ravishing Russian” known as Lana. They’ve also made a number of enemies in Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, and Paige. It is rumored that these six divas may end up getting a six-diva tag match at the big PPV.
Giant among men
So far, the four members of the Social Outcasts are the only names that have added their names to the 3rd Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. There are going to be at least 16 more names added to the big match, and look for many of them to be named on Monday Night Raw.
WrestleZone is reporting that this year’s match will actually air on the USA Network as part of the seven hours of coverage on WrestleMania 32 Sunday. It is likely going to be a part of the Kickoff Show along with maybe one or two other matches.
The Game has changed
After returning to WWE television last week, Roman Reigns put a beatdown on the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and his WrestleMania opponent, Triple H. It was a bit of payback, and now it’s likely going to result in a WWE Champion that isn’t happy at all.
After a few weeks off of TV, this main event program is finally going to get the attention it deserves and really needs. There is also talk that another big surprise could happen before WrestleMania 32, and it could have a huge impact on the WWE Title match.
Once Monday Night Raw even begins, it will be less than two weeks until WrestleMania 32, and the build-up is ongoing. Roman Reigns and Triple H in the main event is the focus, but a few added twists could be thrown in. It’s going to be a big night on Monday, and there is so much that is set to take place.
