On the grand stage. Wrestling fans love to speculate about the biggest matches of the year at WrestleMania and this year’s edition is no exception. It’s hard to go anywhere in the wrestling world without a discussion of the Women’s Title match or Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins. It’s easy to see why too, given how high profile those matches are. There is more to the card than that though and one potential match sounds interesting.

According to Joe Peisich on Barnburner’s On The Mat podcast, WWE may be planning a WrestleMania 35 match between Mustafa Ali and the currently inactive Sami Zayn. Ali recently returned to the ring from a concussion while Zayn hasn’t wrestled since June due to shoulder surgery. Zayn’s return was mentioned back in November but nothing has taken place since then.

Ali is back. Check out what he had to say upon his return:

Opinion: This could be rather interesting but more importantly, it’s just nice to have a match that doesn’t involve a bunch of people at once. Sometimes it’s ok to just run a one on one match instead of going with another triple threat or fatal fourway. The match itself sounds intriguing too as these guys could have a heck of a performance where either of them could win. It almost feels like a bit of a throwback and that’s a nice thing.
