The entirety of WWE is now building to WrestleMania 36, the biggest wrestling event of the calendar. One match has already been confirmed to take place is Drew McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. A full card is still coming together for the April event, but WWE Hall of Fame star Booker T feels as if he already knows which bout deserves to be in the main event slot.
So many things can happen between now and when WrestleMania 36 takes place in early April. WWE is building the card behind-the-scenes, but injuries and other issues could throw a wrench into the plans and cause alterations to be made.
Booker T is one of the greatest superstars to ever set foot in a wrestling ring. He is likely going to be a part of WrestleMania 36 weekend as part of a panel or pre-show, or maybe even appear in the event itself.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Booker was asked about everything going on with him and about the upcoming pay-per-view. When it came to talking about the main event of WrestleMania 36, Booker said he believes there is only one match that deserves that prestigious spot.
After winning the men’s Royal Rumble match, Drew McIntyre made his decision to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. That match will happen at WrestleMania, and Booker feels as if it should go on last.
“McIntyre-Lesnar is a built-in story. Drew paid his dues. He’s a guy that got fired, had to go out there and find himself, then work his way back up. Drew is a guy that was once labeled ‘The Chosen One,’ and then all of that fell through. To see him back, it’s only fitting to close WrestleMania with that match.”
There is no doubt that this would be a fitting and exciting end to the event. Only one other match has been revealed for the event and that is Charlotte Flair challenging Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship. A dozen more matches could be added to the card before April to fill out the show.
Drew McIntyre has paid his dues over the years, and he’s made it to the top of the WWE ladder. There is only one more rung for him to climb and that is winning the WWE Championship. It is just within his grasp and could come very soon. Booker T feels as if that opportunity against Brock Lesnar should be how WrestleMania 36 closes out in Tampa, Florida, on April 5, 2020.
