In the last episode of Monday Night Raw aired in the night, which was the one following the last PPV made in WWE, Fastlane, the Stamford-based federation began to heavily throw down the show card of the shows, going to formalize several matches that had been in the air for some time, but which still did not have the on-screen ok to be added to the card of the most awaited event of the year.
If the match between Randy Orton and The Fiend was almost certain for several months, other disputes have been modified or raised quite quickly, such as the match between Asuka and Rhea Ripley, with the absence of Charlotte Flair, stopped for covid, which thus made the federation opt for a more drastic resolution, with the name of the former NXT Women's Champion that came out at the right time, like from a magician's hat.
After seeing the match of Bad Bunny and The Miz also confirmed, with the two who initially seemed to be able to take part in a tag team match in WrestleMania, alongside their two friends, John Morrison and Damian Priest, in the end the WWE opted for a single match, which was soon joined by the dispute between Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon, who will thus have their face to face during the Showcase of the Immortals.
After confirming all these matches, WWE has also begun to select the various contests that will make up the two nights dedicated to the Grandaddy of Them All, with the two matches valid for the world titles of Raw and Smackdown, which will most likely close both the evenings, from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
WrestleMania 37 will have limited fan attendance this time around
So let's see which matches, for the moment, WWE has entrusted to the "night 1" and "night 2" of WrestleMania. Wrestlemania night 1: - WWE Title match: Bobby Lashley vs Drew McIntyre (likely main event) - Smackdown Women's Title match: Sasha Banks vs Bianca Belair Wrestlemania night 2: - Universal Title match: Roman Reigns vs Edge (vs Daniel Bryan?) Probable main event - Raw Women's Title match: Asuka vs Rhea Ripley - Randy Orton vs The Fiend.
The following matches that have already been confirmed remain to be assigned at the moment: -New Day vs AJ Styles & Omos for Raw Tag Team titles - Bad Bunny vs The Miz - Braun Strowman vs Shane McMahon. The COVID-19 pandemic prevented WWE from having fans in attendance for last year's WrestleMania.
However, WWE has decided to allow a limited number of fans for WrestleMania 37 and are taking the necessary health and safety procautions to do so. The company has already launched ticket sales for the event and is expecting to host at least 45,000 fans per night.
