Three huge matches were announced for WrestleMania last night, including the return of the 16-time world champion John Cena.
Cena, who was pretty emotional yesterday night and had a fantastic in-ring segment with Austin Theory, will get a shot at the United States title after Theory challenged him for the belt. Cena originally said no, but then gave the fans what they wanted. This will be Cena’s first scheduled WrestleMania match since 2015.
Seth Rollins didn’t know his WrestleMania opponent last year until he was in the ring, but this time, he knows pretty well in advance. After facing Logan Paul on Miz TV, Rollins will get the chance to get his hands on the man who eliminated him at the Royal Rumble. Rollins wanted Paul on Raw, but Paul said that he’s a premium attraction and would not wrestle in Boston and wants a bigger stage. The Miz, as host of WrestleMania, then said he’ll make the match for WrestleMania. Paul ended up having the last laugh after delivering the stomp on Rollins.
And a six-woman tag team match has also been announced as Becky Lynch, Lita, and Trish Stratus will team up to take on Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY. The match was set up during an in-ring segment where Stratus laid down the challenge.
The Women’s Tag Team titles are expected to still be on the line on night two of WrestleMania despite Lynch and Lita wrestling in this match and one of the teams will be pulling double duty.
