You can mark your calendars. WrestleMania 36 is something we have never seen before. For the first time ever, there is a two night schedule for the show, meaning that some matches will be taking place a full day before the next. I’m not sure what to expect from the show as a whole, but as of Monday, we have a better idea of what might be taking place on the first night.
There have been a lot of big matches set up for WrestleMania and a lot of them have been built around personal rivalries. Some of these have been going for a very long time now and one of the longest such rivalries is between Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins. The two have been feuding since November and now we know a little more about their impending showdown.
Rollins attacked Owens during this week’s Monday Night Raw, leaving Owens laying in the ring. Owens got up and had something to say to Rollins, during which he announced that their match will take place on Saturday. This is the first match officially assigned a day of the two available. WrestleMania was taped in advance last week, meaning that the shows can be edited together however WWE prefers. There is no word on how many match days will be announced in advance.
It was a rather serious promo. Check out what Owens had to say:
Opinion: This is something that might not mean much in the long run, but it is nice to know what to expect from either night. If nothing else, it might help fans who are wanting to know which night they would prefer to watch if they can’t do both. There are a lot of combinations that could be figured out and while they may not matter much at the end of the day, it can be fun to know in advance.
What will headline both nights? How would you set up the two shows? Let us know in the comments below.
