New matches announced...and a big change to another...for WrestleMania.
The showdown between The Miz and Bad Bunny will now be a tag team match. Miz and John Morrison vs. Bad Bunny and Damien Priest. The challenge was laid out by Priest after Miz and Morrison defaced Bad Bunny’s $3.6 million dollar Buggati.
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles will be defended at WrestleMania. But first, we need a challenger. A Tag Team Turmoil match will decide that on Night 1 of Mania - Naomi & Lana vs. Dana Brooke & Mandy Rose vs. The Riott Squad vs. Tamina & Natalya. Those teams were announced on last night’s Raw. WWE’s website listed a fifth team - Carmella & Billie Kay.
Anyway, whichever team wins on Night 1 will challenge the champs, Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler on Night 2.
Raw women’s champion Asuka and her WrestleMania challenger Rhea Ripley were NOT able to coexist last night. They lost to a non-title match to the WWE women’s tag champs Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. Ripley attacked Asuka during the match, allowing Baszler to PIN Asuka.
Drew McIntyre survived a final hurdle on his road to Mania, beating King Corbin. WWE Champ Bobby Lashley warmed up for their showdown with a non-title win over Cedric Alexander.
Xavier Woods rolled up AJ Styles for an upset win...and U.S. Champ Riddle pinned Mustafa Ali in another non-title match...
