Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes vs The Rock and Roman Reigns


This is a tag team match that was not in the plans of WWE and Triple H for WrestleMania 40. However when CM Punk got injured the plans changed quickly and Triple H came around with a perfect solution. This has been building for the last few weeks and at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Press Conference it was clear that 2 sides have been made. And then on Raw this Monday, Seth Rollins said that he is ready to be the Shield for Cody Rhodes. The Rock has said that he will be wrestling at WrestleMania 40 and he and Roman Reigns have formed the new Super Bloodline. This is a match that could easily headline WrestleMania 40 Night 1 and this will be the first non tag team title match that will main event WrestleMania since the first one.

Bayley vs Iyo Sky for WWE Women’s Championship

This is the best storyline heading into WrestleMania and it has been proven week after week in the ratings for SmackDown. This past week the segment featuring these women for over 2.70 million viewers which was the highest In the entire show. They have consistently been the top draws and the fans are invested in this long term storyline. Bayley as a face is something that WWE fans can easily get behind. This match has the best story out of the 3 options to main event WrestleMania 40 Night 1. Last year Triple H said that the match with the best story will main event WrestleMania no matter which match it is. Bayley vs Iyo Sky is a serious contender to be the main event of WrestleMania and this will make Bayley the 4th Horsewoman to main event WrestleMania.

Becky Lynch vs Rhea Ripley for Women’s World Championship

The third option is also a women’s match and it is absolutely amazing to see 2 women’s matches be in the contention to main event WrestleMania 40. Becky Lynch is one of the biggest stars in WWE and since a few months the direction has been clear that this will be the match at WrestleMania for the Women’s World Championship. Rhea Ripley has been a phenomenal champion and she will have held it for over a year when she goes into WrestleMania 40. Rhea Ripley has also become a huge Star and she is on the level of Becky Lynch. Even though Rhea Ripley is a heel., the fans keep chanting Mami Mami and she is a face in the feud against Nia Jax and the fans in her home country in Perth are waiting to give her a hero’s welcome. Becky Lynch will be in the most star studded women’s Elimination Chamber Match. This match can also be the main event Night 1 of WrestleMania 40.
