WWE announced two matches for WrestleMania 36 and they both come from the Raw brand.
First, Aleister Black will take on Bobby Lashley in singles competition.
Two Superstars looking for a fight. A rivalry nobody saw coming. And one stage big enough to host it. In one of the most intriguing matchups of WrestleMania season, Aleister Black will go one-on-one with Bobby Lashley at this year’s history-making edition of The Showcase of the Immortals.
While the two have had little to no interaction of late, they make perfect sense as opponents. Black has made it clear in recent weeks that he’s no longer willing to wait for fights to come to him, opting to seek out matches with anyone on Raw who’s unwise enough to take them. Likewise, Lashley has reintroduced himself in a major way, transforming from wife-stealing Casanova to human wrecking machine in a matter of weeks as a way to bulldoze his way back into title contention.
In other words, this match is a classic case of two people looking to make a statement, with each suddenly the other’s biggest roadblock to the next level. And now, like the classic math problem, these two trains are on a collision course, with WrestleMania as the shared destination. Sometimes, it’s just that simple.
Also added to WrestleMania 36 is a Raw Tag Team Title bout pitting The Street Profits defending against Angel Garza & United States Champion Andrade.
The Street Profits have taken their game to another level since becoming Raw Tag Team Champions, but at WrestleMania, they’ll have to fend off challengers that know a thing or two about winning gold when they defend against Andrade & Angel Garza.
Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins passed their first test as champions, again overcoming Seth Rollins & Murphy in a rematch at WWE Elimination Chamber after dethroning them six days earlier on Raw.
Now they’ll deal with United States Champion Andrade & Garza — the latter of whom is also no stranger to titles as a former NXT Cruiserweight Champion. The presence of Zelina Vega also figures to be a factor, as La Muñeca is always a threat to tip the scales in Andrade & Garza’s favor.
WWE announced that WrestleMania 36 will take place across two nights with matches being shot at multiple locations. Matches will reportedly be taped on Wednesday and Thursday.
