Of course there’s more time. We have finally reached WrestleMania weekend and that means the biggest night(s) of wrestling all year long. While we don’t know what is going to take place on each specific night as WWE has not announced a card for either show, we do know a little something: there are going to be A LOT of matches all around. This includes something that wasn’t even announced before the weekend.
One of the biggest parts of WrestleMania is how many places are broadcasting the show. Of course the is the WWE Network, but we also have the FOX App, plus regular pay per view. In other words, there is no excuse to not be able to see the show, meaning WWE is promoting the heck out of it. What better way to do that than with some extra material that you won’t see on the pay per view?
WWE has announced a pair of Kickoff Show matches for WrestleMania 36, with one match airing per night. First up, Drew Gulak will face Cesaro on Saturday night while Natalya and Liv Morgan will square off on Sunday. Gulak and Cesaro have been part of the Daniel Bryan vs. Sami Zayn feud as of late while Natalya and Morgan’s only interactions were in the Elimination Chamber last month.
Before @WWEDanielBryan challenges @SamiZayn later tonight we're kicking off #WrestleMania with a lesson. Hope you brought your rain coat, @WWECesaro! https://t.co/tJPc5feyiA

There have been some issues. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This brings us all the way to a total of eighteen matches for the two nights, assuming there isn’t anything else added. I would say that we have reached a point of oversaturation but we probably got there when it was just sixteen matches. I can get the idea of some Kickoff Show matches, but did they really need to add in two new ones? Just put something already made on there instead and let the shows breathe a bit.
Which of the matches sound better? Who do you have winning both of them? Let us know in the comments below.
