>> Click Here To Bet On Pro Wrestling and More! <<

As it stands, the complete card for WrestleMania 39 has yet to be settled in more methods than one. Not just do we not understand a minimum of a handful of matches that are yet to be validated, however we likewise do not have any matches definitively set for either specific night.

When you consider the possibility WWE deals with the SmackDown prior to WrestleMania as another “WrestleMania SmackDown” episode and practically a 3rd night in and of itself like the previous 2 years, that makes complex things even further.

Seeing as how WWE has actually done such little to promote the Hall of Fame ahead of time and is hurrying at the last minute, it would not stun me at all if we do not find out the complete lineup for Night 1 and Night 2 of WrestleMania 39 till simply a couple of days in advance– if not on the Friday prior.

Dealing with what we presently understand, what we can presume will be on the card, and a few of my random dream reserving recommendations that might not always remain in the works, here are my tips for how to cancel WrestleMania Weekend 2023.

Matches Yet to Be Announced/ Confirmed

  • It appears like they’re staying with this Bobby Lashley vs. Bray Wyatt rubbish, regardless of how the fight has no story, nor any heat to it. I’m integrating that on the card, although if I were running things, this naturally never ever would have been a concept.
  • Dominik Mysterio vs. Rey Mysterio appears like a lock.
  • Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. The Usos has to take place.
  • I’m anticipating Drew McIntyre and Sheamus to have a Triple Threat versus Gunther.
  • The Ronda Rousey circumstance has me perplexed. Do they do double-duty with Rousey and Shayna Baszler battling Becky Lynch and Lita on whatever night the six-woman tag does not take place? Well, I have an alternate recommendation.
  • I’m not anticipating anything else to be revealed as far as matches go. Triple H apparently desires a smaller sized card, and when in 2015 had 7 and 9 matches (however some were much shorter), that implies we’re taking a look at 6-7 matches per night at a lot of.

Friday Night SmackDown

I do anticipate the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to return on the SmackDown prior to WrestleMania, instead of to be on the card itself. They do not even look like they wish to do kickoff matches any longer to put it on there, regretfully. Have a look at my dream reserving breakdown of that match if you’re interested in specifics of what I ‘d finish with individuals like Solo Sikoa (my choice to win), Damian Priest, Karrion Kross, Santos Escobar, Otis and more.

I would likewise recommend having Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler beat Becky Lynch and Lita for the tag group titles on this program. Damage CTRL costs and interferes Becky and Lita the match to offer a lot more heat to their six-woman tag. This likewise maximizes Rousey and Baszler to combat other ladies at WrestleMania to get other names on the card.

Who? Well, I believe on top of all the other promotions that would be peppered in for the 2 hours, among them need to be Adam Pearce picking 3 other groups to combat Ronda and Shayna. In my perfect world, it would be Liv Morgan and Tegan Nox together, Natalya and Raquel Rodriguez together, and Carmella with Chelsea Green. Nattie and Tegan look like a system recently, however, so let’s simply state Nattie/Tegan, Liv/Raquel and Carmella/Chelsea. Deadly 4-Way for the tag titles contributed to the card. Simply slot in the Ronda/Shayna vs. Becky/Lita thing and nix the other names.

Night 1 and Night 2 Main Event Options

  • Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes definitely needs to go on last for Night 2.
  • The method I see it, the 2 primary choices for the centerpiece of Night 1 are A) Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens vs. The Usos or B) Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley. My perfect situation would be the tag championship, however I might really quickly see WWE believing they require to put Flair/Ripley on to prevent criticism of not having a females’s match in among the 2 centerpieces.
  • Logan Paul vs. Seth Rollins and John Cena vs. Austin Theory are 2 other matches that might go on for the ending of Night 1, however I believe those aren’t reasonable or as most likely compared to the other 2.
  • Presuming the females’s match goes on last for the opening night, I would believe the next finest area for the tag championship would be the opener of Night 2 to get the crowd hot.


  1. NIGHT 1 Opener= Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Gunther vs. Sheamus
  2. Dominik Mysterio vs. Rey Mysterio
  3. Brock Lesnar vs. Omos
  4. Six-Woman Tag Team Match: Damage CTRL vs. Becky Lynch, Lita & & Trish Stratus
  5. Whatever Gimmick Match They’re Planning: Bobby Lashley vs. Bray Wyatt
  6. SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley
  7. Promotion Segment including LA Knight
  8. Centerpiece = Tag Team Championship Match: Kevin Owens & & Sami Zayn vs. The Usos

Begin hot. I believe Sheamus wins the belt by pinning McIntyre to keep Gunther from looking weak. A title modification to start Mania is constantly a great concept, especially after what I’m sure will be a terrific brawl in between those 3.

Dom and Rey aren’t going to have the very best match, however it is still a fascinating sector. Keep the crowd rather hot, however dip them down.

Lesnar and Omos are DEFINITELY not going to have a complex or long match. This is a prospective restroom break for some individuals and you can bookend it with commercials and discounts to make that much more so. Lesnar will do his huge relocations and pop the crowd and then, likely, leave the arena, because he likes going on early for Night 1.

Reward the crowd for enduring that sector by providing the legends and the six-woman tag. This has more time, for sure.

I’m presuming Lashley vs. Wyatt will be some sort of trick match like the Pitch Black thing. I likewise presume it will be trash. Let’s utilize that as the conclusive restroom break for individuals desiring to stroll away for a minute.

Semi-main goes to Flair vs. Ripley. Boooo, we have a brand-new champ. Likewise, yaaay we have a brand-new champ. I do not believe the crowd response is going to be extremely hot for this, so I do not believe it is wise to have it as the centerpiece of Night 1 or an opener.

Evaluating by the response he got in Madison Square Garden this previous weekend, I believe you require to have a discount section with LA Knight. Preferably, this is the report that Stone Cold Steve Austin will do something with him (most likely offer him a stunner which’s about it). Substantial pop for the crowd. Not something they HAVE to view as far as matches go. It permits individuals to cool down a bit while likewise hyping them up for the centerpiece.

Centerpiece goes to Zayn and Owens winning the tag titles. Everybody’s delighted and reviewing the night with fond eyes due to the fact that you left them with an excellent long lasting impression and an excellent opener.


  1. Opener = Hell in a Cell Match: Edge vs. Finn Balor
  2. Raw Women’s Championship Match: Bianca Belair vs. Asuka
  3. Logan Paul vs. Seth Rollins
  4. Promotion Segment = The Miz
  5. Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler vs. either Becky Lynch and Lita OR 3 other groups (Liv Morgan/Raquel Rodriguez, Natalya/Tegan Nox, and Carmella/Chelsea Green)
  6. United States Championship Match: Austin Theory vs. John Cena
  7. Hall of Fame Parade
  8. Indisputable WWE Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes

Begin hot once again. Well, as hot as you can get. Brood Edge versus Demon Balor inside Hell in a Cell is something that does not be worthy of a complete year of an integrate in my mind, however on paper, individuals will lose their shit over it, I’m sure. Plus, you can establish the cage the night prior to which conserves time on the card you can offer to other matches, rather of requiring some downtime filler bumper things.

There is ZERO heat to Belair vs. Asuka aside from that all of us understand how fantastic they are. Embarassment on WWE for not developing this whatsoever. All they keep doing is gazing at each other. Regardless of how remarkable both Superstars occur to be, they can not be dealt with like this is Andre vs. Hogan or whatever. This is a great area for them in my mind where they can flaunt their skills and not remain in a death area.

Logan Paul and Seth Rollins will most likely have a fantastic match. I’m anticipating some bumper sections ahead of time, so this will efficiently start hour 2 (minus the kickoff hour, obviously).

Preferably, The Miz has a sector here as the host that includes a legend. In my mind, I ‘d enjoy to see The Rock appear and after that, element that into the centerpiece.

Women’s tag group championship is next. Whether it’s a Fatal 4-Way or simply Becky and Lita pulling double-duty, I believe this remains in a comparable semi-death-spot like Wyatt vs. Lashley. Sorry, however it simply isn’t going to be the greatest concern.

Ramp things back up to Theory versus Cena for the United States title. When (ideally) Theory keeps, this is going to get some boos. You require to permit yourself a dissatisfaction prior to the primary occasion. Considering that Cena’s there, it wakes up anybody who wasn’t interested in the ladies’s title match, as there sadly simply are individuals who will instantly compose off a ladies’s department match as dull no matter what.

Buffer section prior to the centerpiece is the Hall of Fame parade. It functions as a restroom break for individuals who do not wish to miss out on Cody versus Roman, however it likewise generates some smiles after Theory winning ahead of time.

The night ends with Cody Rhodes beating Roman Reigns. In my perfect situation, we see Zayn, Owens and The Rock assist battle The Usos and Solo Sikoa, and we end WrestleMania with everybody commemorating and pulling a WrestleMania 10, holding up Cody like Bret Hart was gotten.

What do you believe the lineup should be for these nights? Drop your concepts in the remarks listed below!
