Two more on the books. WrestleMania 36 is less than eight days away and WWE is scrambling to do everything they can for the show. As different as this show is going to be, there are still some things that are being held over from previous editions, including adding in several matches to the show. The card is already packed and now it is packed even more than it was.
With so many people running around WWE, you almost have to have a lot of titles to give them things to do. The company has had a bunch of gold (and silver) for a long time now and that is not likely to change anytime soon. A good chunk of those titles are going to be on the line at WrestleMania and after Friday night, we now know how two more of them will be defended.
This week on SmackDown, two more title matches were set for WrestleMania. First, Drew Gulak defeated Shinsuke Nakamura, meaning that due to a pre-match stipulation, Daniel Bryan will receive an Intercontinental Title shot against Sami Zayn. Then in the main event, the New Day defeated the Usos via DQ when John Morrison and the Miz interfered. As a result, Miz and Morrison will defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against both teams in a ladder match.
They were big matches. Check out how things went down and New Day’s thoughts on the title match:
Opinion: These sound fine on paper, Zayn is banged up and Miz and Morrison have not had the strongest title reign so far. Hopefully we get the best out of everyone because that’s what the show is going to need to survive given all of the changes. Maybe it can wind up working out well enough, but given how badly this show has gone so far, I’m not sure how much I’d believe that.
Which of these matches sounds better? Who do you see leaving with the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
