3 matches that should happen at WrestleMania 36

This year, the WrestleMania event will be live from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Manifestly, the show will also stream live on the WWE Network and pay-per-view.
The road to WrestleMania kicked off in amazing fashion at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, an event that set the stage for the biggest matches at this year’s WrestleMania. In the lead-up to Mania, two preliminary pay-per-views, (Super ShowDown and Elimination Chamber) will take place in February and March respectively.
Thus far, only one match has been officially announced for WrestleMania, which is for WWE Championship match between the Champion, Brock Lesnar, and the Royal Rumble 2020 winner, Drew McIntyre.
It’s safe to assume that Mania will have between 14 and 16 matches on the card. The Road to WrestleMania is the busiest and most unpredictable time of the year for the fans.
Consequently, there are a handful of matches that could and should take place at this year’s WrestleMania. Let’s look at 3 such matches.

3. Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler for the Raw Women’s Championship

The Man versus The Queen of Spades is one of the blockbuster matches rumored for WrestleMania 36. Originally, Baszler was expected to win the Women’s Royal Rumble match, but a last-minute shift in plans resulted in Charlotte Flair emerging victorious. If recent reports are to be believed, then it’s a safe bet that we’re getting a dream match between Baszler and Lynch.
Baszler had an impressive outing at the Royal Rumble. She was the final entrant, tossed over eight women over the top-rope, and was also the runner-up. Even though a Rumble victory would’ve been the most viable way to kick-start the feud, there is still plenty of time to build hype for the match.
Lynch has run through just about everyone on the main roster, but Baszler is one of the toughest opponents the former has ever come across. Bazler has a pretty good chance of dethroning the Man.

2. ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt vs Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship

The Big Dog recently done rivalry with King Corbin. On the other hand, The Fiend further extended his championship reign by overcoming the challenge of Daniel Bryan. The next direction seems simple, straight-forward and quite logical: a Universal title show-down between SmackDown’s biggest stars, Reigns and Wyatt.
Reigns was initially expected to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match, but Drew McIntyre put an end to those plans. No matter what route he takes, fans know where he’s headed – to yet another high-profile World Championship match against an abominable and dominant champion.
Apparently, WWE has been wanting to do this match for a long time and WrestleMania feels like the most opportune time. Some reports claim that it has already been ‘penciled in’.
When you think of how far Wyatt’s come in a year, it’s almost a miracle. He has undergone a complete transformation into one of WWE’s spookiest creations.
Reigns has always been the apple of Vince McMahon’s eye, one could only envision Wyatt’s push as a stepping stone for the Big Dog. However, history has shown that it is not wise to bet against Wyatt. Thus, Wyatt could defeat Reigns at Mania, a feat the likes of the Undertaker and Triple H couldn’t accomplish.

1. Sting vs The Undertaker

This is one of those matches that fans expected in WWE. WWE’s Phenom versus WCW’s Scorpion, The Deadman versus The Vigilante, Tombstone Piledriver versus Scorpion Death Drop, Hell’s Gate versus Scorpion Death Lock, Undertaker versus Sting. Two cornerstones of their generation, Undertaker and Sting, are two of sports-entertainment’s greatest creations.
This  is a dream encounter is actually being considered for WrestleMania 36. Sting is currently retired from in-ring competition and Taker is only called up two to three times a year for special events.
Sting has articulated his desire to face Taker, so he wouldn’t mind coming out of retirement for a match against him. This could sound far-fetched to the casual fan, but we’ve learned to expect the unexpected from WWE.
Critics will argue that this match is taking place far too late as both men are way past their prime, but supporters will argue that the entrances and stare-downs will be enough to get the crowd on the edge of their seats.
Given their age and physical limitations, the match should be kept short, but there’s no valid reason for it not happening at all. If WWE lets this slip through its fingers, it would be a monumental missed opportunity and an unmistakable offence.
