The card keeps growing. We are less than two weeks away from WrestleMania 36 and that means there is still time to build up the card. With this year’s show featuring two nights instead of the usual one, WWE may be interested in adding in some extra matches to the card than they normally would. That seems to be the case, as the card has gotten a little bit bigger.
Monday Night Raw has a lot of talented wrestlers on its roster, meaning that they can put together quite a strong set of matches for WrestleMania. Some of these matches will involve titles, but others will include matches focused on personal rivalries with a grudge to settle. However, some of them will have neither of those things, which makes this year’s show somewhat different.
WWE.com has announced a pair of matches for this year’s WrestleMania. First up, Aleister Black will face Bobby Lashley. The two have never fought before and have had no major interaction on the main roster. Second, the Street Profits will defend the Raw Tag Team Titles against Angel Garza and Andrade. Garza and Andrade have teamed together once before in a loss to Humberto Carrillo and Rey Mysterio on the March 2 Monday Night Raw. These matches bring the current total for WrestleMania to eleven.
It’s an eclectic group. Check out everyone in action:
Opinion: I might need a bit of an explanation on these matches as they feel completely random. Even the WWE.com preview for Black vs. Lashley mentions that they have virtually no reason to fight other than it could be a good match. That’s all well and good at a live event, but that’s not what WrestleMania is for (at least not the modern version). This could get out of hand in a hurry and would you really be surprised?
