We’re Officially on the Road to WrestleMania

  • Pin It

With Royal Rumble weekend behind us, the Road to WrestleMania is now in front of us and it’s looking like it will be a fun journey between now and April 7th. So many developments over the course of three nights.

On Sunday, we witnessed The Man Becky Lynch pick up a stunning Royal Rumble match victory as she took the place of the injured Lana. Lynch received the okay from Finlay out of all people to take Lana’s spot, which seemed really odd to me that he out of all people could give the thumbs up.

Nevertheless, Lynch eliminated Charlotte Flair to win the rumble match, much to the liking of the raucous Chase Field crowd. Fast forward 24 hours later and Lynch found herself face to face with Ronda Rousey, confirming what most of us already knew. Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35. This may main event WrestleMania.

There could also be a little bit of a caveat due to the way Lynch won the rumble match. Charlotte may claim that Lynch’s win was indeed invalid, prompting some type of match or stipulation in the coming weeks which would possibly add Charlotte to this main event match, leading to a triple threat. Charlotte attacking Lynch on Smackdown Live last night may be what gets us from point A (Lynch vs. Rousey) to point B (Triple Threat match) for WrestleMania

Only time will tell if that ends up happening. However, as it stands currently, this showdown between Lynch and Rousey is still one-on-one and could go down as the greatest singles women’s match in WWE history.

 

Then we were made aware that Ember Moon, who potentially could have had a major role at this year’s WrestleMania, will be out for a couple of months due to an elbow injury suffered during the Royal Rumble match.

The injury will force her to miss WrestleMania.

 

Hideo Itami has been granted his release following his loss this past Sunday in the Cruiserweight title fatal four way match.

Itami, who has changed his Twitter name back to Kenta, never ended up being an impact player for WWE after his signing a few years back. He did have an NXT title match versus Bobby Roode back in 2017, but that was really about it.

 

R-Truth made some news as he defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to win his second ever United States title, almost nine years after winning his first. He then defeated Rusev shortly after to retain his title, which then lead to Rusev turning heel and joining forces with Nakamura to attack Truth. Is Truth, who may be finishing up is career, getting that first ever WrestleMania victory? He’s currently 0-5 and would seem like a fair bet that he is now involved in the WrestleMania picture following his U.S. title win.

 

Then we have Daniel Bryan, who not only has made an ally out of Rowan to help his crusade against consumerism and the evils of the world, but now has a WWE Championship made out of HEMP. Yes, you read that right. HEMP.

Bryan has been on an absolute tear as of late when it comes to promos and embracing this heel character. It will be interesting to see who else joins his crusade. Do we see Bray Wyatt or Luke Harper join him, or will either one become the next opponent for Bryan once the Elimination Chamber match is over? Bryan’s road to the grandest stage of them all looks to be the most intriguing because he’s one of the few big time stars that really doesn’t have a clear path. Buckle your seat belts.

 

Another big news story circling the internet is the sudden news that Dean Ambrose will be leaving WWE when his contract runs out in April.

This is an out of nowhere revelation, and would explain why Ambrose had an unimpressive Royal Rumble showing on Sunday. Ambrose will most likely now be left off of the WrestleMania card barring his inclusion in the Andre The Giant battle royal or in some type of multi person Intercontinental title match.

Ambrose lost clean to Seth Rollins on Raw and was attacked by Nia Jax of all people this past Monday.

Speaking of Seth Rollins, his Road to WrestleMania is now clear.

After winning this year’s Royal Rumble match, Seth Rollins had a choice between a WWE Championship match or a Universal Championship match.

He chose to fight the Beast Incarnate.

Brock Lesnar was ready.

Lesnar hit Rollins with SIX F-5’s to dismantle the kingslayer in response to Rollins’ choice to face him at WrestleMania for the Universal Championship.

Seth Rollins’ road started off with a trip to F-5 City. Is Suplex City next for him on this bumpy road to WrestleMania?
