WWE WrestleMania Title Match Could Have Bizarre Conclusion

Triple H WWE

Speculation is running wild ahead of WWE WrestleMania 40.

On the April 1st edition of Raw, WWE all but confirmed that the Tag Team Titles would be split up for the first time since May 2022. The Raw and SmackDown Titles have been treated as one entity since The Usos defeated Randy Orton and Matt Riddle on May 20th of that year.

Since then Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have held the gold as well as Cody Rhodes & Jey Uso, and current champions Judgment Day.

However, on Raw, Michael Cole said that all four title belts will be suspended above the ring for the Six Pack Tag Team Ladder Match at WrestleMania.

Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed the changes.

They mentioned that both the Raw and Smackdown tag titles will be held above the ring and the match will continue until all four belts are retrieved. They have not brought up the possibility of one team getting down one set of belts and another team getting the other but by the description it sounded like that was a possibility.

It’s not being promoted as such directly.

Meltzer added that he was told as late as a week ago that Pretty Deadly were listed internally for the match despite losing a qualifier.

For reasons unknown to me, because they had already been knocked out of the tournament, Pretty Deadly was internally listed for this match as late as a week ago

There has become more and more talk about the potential to create two champions in this match so picking a winner is weird because there could be two winners. The gambling odds are favoring Miz & R-Truth.

WWE Moving Away From Vince McMahon Tradition

It’s been announced that Grammy Award winner Coco Jones will perform the American national anthem to open WrestleMania Saturday.

Interestingly, America The Beautiful has traditionally been performed at the event, but it seems this has been dropped. WrestleMania 40 is the first time that Vince McMahon hasn’t had an influence over the spectacular he created back in 1985.
