Now that it’s official. With less than five days before WrestleMania 36 and the event already taped in advance, you might think that the card was ready to go. As tends to be the case though, WWE knows how to make their biggest card of the year even bigger and that was the case this week. Most of the show had already been announced but there was room for at least one more.
There have been a lot of matches set up over the last few months but not all of them have been confirmed for WrestleMania. There are so many things to cover in such a short amount of time that something is going to have to be left until the end. That isn’t a knock on the match, but it does show you how much is going on. We now know what that last match will be, at least on the Monday Night raw side.
During this week’s Monday Night Raw, a Women’s Tag Team Title match was confirmed for WrestleMania, as the Kabuki Warriors will be defending the titles against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. This match has been teased for weeks now, with Bliss defeating Asuka on last week’s SmackDown. This will be the first televised title defense since Tables, Ladders And Chairs on December 15, 2019.
It took some time to get here. Check out how the match was set up:
Opinion: The fact that these titles have not been defended on a major show in about three and a half months tells you a lot about what is wrong with them. The fact that it seems like WWE didn’t notice and/or care tells you the rest of it. They haven’t mattered in a long time, assuming you believe they ever mattered in the first place. I don’t know how, but a mercy killing would not be the worst thing in the world for them. It would certainly be better than this.
