The first night of WrestleMania 36 took place last night and you can check out my review here. There were eight matches on the main show along with a Kickoff Show match. I think the show was well received and a lot of people loved The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match in the main event spot, so it’s good to see. I think WWE being able to edit matches and piece things together to run smoothly certainly helps with the presentation of the show.
Here are the nine matches that will take place on the second part of WrestleMania 36 tonight. The order of the matches will not be as they appear below. We will find out the match order tonight as the show happens.
* Natalya vs. Liv Morgan (Kickoff Show)
* Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler
* Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley
* Smackdown Women’s Title: Bayley (c) vs. Tamina vs. Sasha Banks vs. Lacey Evans vs. Naomi
* Raw Tag Team Titles: Street Profits vs. Angel Garza & Austin Theory
* NXT Women’s Title: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
* Firefly Fun House Match: John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
* Last Man Standing Match: Edge vs. Randy Orton
* WWE Championship: Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre
I think the last three matches all have a chance to be very good to great. I’m more optimistic about Cena vs. Wyatt now after seeing Undertaker vs. Styles last night because WWE is going to be able to edit it and make it look as good as possible as a cinematic fight instead of a wrestling match. If they do too many comedy spots that would hurt the match, though. I think Edge and Orton should have an excellent match where they brawl around the Performance Center and do some big spots. Lesnar vs. McIntyre could be awesome as well. I like the potential of Ripley vs. Flair as well. The other matches don’t interest me as much.
It’s not known right now as far as what match goes on last. I think it should be Lesnar vs. McIntyre. They could opt for Cena vs. Wyatt because they went with Undertaker vs. Styles yesterday. If I had to pick I would go with Lesnar vs. McIntyre as the last match.
I’ll be back tonight at 7pmET for the live review of WrestleMania 36. There’s a Kickoff Show beginning at 6pmET as well. Last night’s show ended right at the three-hour mark for the main show, so I think it will be something similar tonight as well. You can check it out on WWE Network.
