WWE Road To WrestleMania

The WrestleMania 38 Card


WrestleMania 38 weekend is now less than four weeks away.


For the third straight year, WrestleMania will be a two-night event. WWE is billing day one and day two as “WrestleMania Saturday” and “WrestleMania Sunday”, respectively.


This year’s event will take place at AT&T Stadium — home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys — in Arlington, Texas on the Apr. 2-3 weekend.


There are currently ten matches on the card for WrestleMania. Furthermore, we know that Hall of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin will be a special guest on “The KO Show”, hosted by Kevin Owens.


The four confirmed matches for WrestleMania Saturday are Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship, Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, Drew McIntyre vs. Happy Corbin and Rey and Dominik Mysterio vs. The Miz and Logan Paul.


Both Flair (+350) and Lynch (+225) are betting underdogs to lose their respective matches and titles. Rousey is a giant -600 favorite to win the SmackDown Women’s title, and Belair is a -350 favorite to dethrone Lynch. Some of the top sports betting apps are offering new customers risk-free bets that are worth up to $1,000.


WrestleMania Sunday will be headlined by WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a “Winner Takes All” Match. WWE will unify the two championships, with the winner becoming the new unified champion.


The second night of WrestleMania will also feature Johnny Knoxville vs. Sami Zayn, AJ Styles vs. Hall of Famer Edge, Austin Theory vs. Pat McAfee and Naomi and Sasha Banks vs. Carmella and Queen Zelina and Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley for the Women’s Tag Team Championships.


RK-Bro became the new Raw Tag Team Champions on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. They will defend the titles (opponent to be announced) at WrestleMania. WWE hasn’t announced which day the match will take place.


WrestleMania Rumors & Notes

It was previously reported that WWE was trying to get the aforementioned Steve Austin to return for a match at WrestleMania, which will run in his home state of Texas.


Bringing in Austin will go a long way in helping sell more tickets for the massive two-night event.


But Austin’s appearance on The KO Show essentially confirms that the WWE legend will not actually return to the ring. We can expect a physical confrontation of some sort, and it’ll likely culminate with Austin performing his signature ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ finishing maneuver.


Austin wrestled his last match at WrestleMania XIX against The Rock, which the latter won. Injuries subsequently prompted Austin to announce his retirement at the age of 38, but the Hall of Famer continues to make sporadic appearances. He was involved at WrestleMania XXX and WrestleMania 32.


Regarding the Austin Theory-Pat McAfee bout, Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t WrestlingNews.co) that WWE chairman Vince McMahon will play a central role in the match.


“Vince McMahon is still in the angle,” Meltzer explained. “I don’t know if it’s going to be a handicap match. I don’t know if it’s going to be Vince McMahon in the corner of Austin Theory, but getting heavily involved in the angle and everything like that. Right now, Vince McMahon is the key to that match. That is the drawing of that match, is Vince. “


Theory and McMahon have been working together aplenty on Monday Night Raw over the past few months. Theory, McMahon’s latest project, has enjoyed a notable push in 2022.


He even got a WWE Championship match against Lesnar at Saturday’s MSG show, which the latter won. Now, Theory will go up against the former NFL punter and beloved sports media personality. And if recent reports are accurate, McMahon will somehow get involved.


There was also speculation that former AEW wrestler and Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes would eventually land in WWE.  Last week, Ringside News reported that The American Nightmare was “scheduled for WrestleMania.”


On Sunday, however, Ringside News heard from a source that Cody is no longer listed on the “internal documents” for WrestleMania.


Cody’s potential return to the WWE is a giant question mark at this time. Cody and his wife, Brandi Rhodes, left AEW last month following the expiration of their respective contracts.
