WWE Rumors: Major ‘WrestleMania 36’ Matches Being Changed

With less than two months to go until WrestleMania 36, WWE still doesn’t have a lot of the matches set. Two matches have been officially confirmed, and a number of others are rumored, but until they’re officially announced, nothing is set in stone. The speculation and rumors flying around the card for WrestleMania is proving to be wrong, and there is talk that some “sure thing” matches are about to change.

Only two matches are official for WrestleMania 36 and they both spun out of the results from the Royal Rumble matches. Drew McIntyre has chosen to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship, while Charlotte Flair will take on Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship.

Later this week, the WWE superstars will fly to Saudi Arabia for Super ShowDown, which could settle a lot going forward. One of the biggest matches on the card is Bray Wyatt defending the Universal Title against Goldberg in a match of pitting “The Fiend” against a legend.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, it has been rumored that Wyatt will win that match and go on to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36. Now, things are starting to change, which means it would not be totally out of the question for Goldberg to win the title this week.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, by way of Wrestling Inc., two scheduled matches are reportedly being changed. One of those is Wyatt vs. Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship, and if that is indeed the case, it could lead to Goldberg simply taking the place of “The Fiend.”

There is another match that could possibly change, and it involves John Cena. On this week’s Friday Night SmackDown, Cena is scheduled to make his return to WWE and set up a program that was supposed to be with Elias, but even that also looks to be out the window.

A lot of what happens on Thursday in Saudi Arabia could signal where WWE is going, as a win by Goldberg at Super ShowDown could foreshadow what’s coming to WrestleMania. There has been no word on what matches could replace the two earlier reported bouts.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer states that “five or six” matches for WrestleMania 36 have been changed recently, and almost all of them from SmackDown. Once Super ShowDown is over, more will be known and lead into Elimination Chamber, which will really help the card fill out for the WrestleMania in Tampa, Florida.
