WrestleMania 37 is less than three weeks away, and WWE has made some progress in setting up the card for the two-day tournament. By the end of the show, eight matches had been announced, five of which were specifically scheduled for the first night (Saturday, April 10) or the second night (Sunday, April 11). The event will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and will feature up to 25,000 live fans each night.
Check out the full WrestleMania match schedule below, along with a summary of what’s happening in each match.
World Cup: Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre – Lashley helped McIntyre cost the World Title in Elimination Chamber, easily defeating The Miz for it eight days later. McIntyre won a handicap match this week on Raw to banish Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander from the ring.
SmackDown Women’s Championship: Sasha Banks vs Bianca Behler – Behler gets her first chance at gold in SmackDown with her win in the 2021 Women’s Royal Draw. The duo failed to win the WWE Women’s Title at Fastlane, and Banks appears to have switched sides in the process.
Bad Bunny vs. The Miz – Almost every week after the Royal Rumble, a rap star appears on WWE television, usually at the expense of the former WWE Champion. Rabbit responded to Miz’s challenge this week by patting him on the back with a guitar.

FIFA World Cup? Roman Reigns vs Edge – This match has been scheduled since Edge chose Reigns as his opponent for Mania in Elimination Chamber. However, in the past 24 hours there have been multiple reports that Daniel Bryan will be included in the race after a controversial finish at Fastlane between him and Rules.
Raw Women’s Championship: Asuka vs Rhea Ripley – The Nightmare made her debut on Raw this week and immediately challenged Asuka for her title. The Empress agreed.

Raw Tag Team Championship: The New Day vs AJ Styles & Omos – The giant routinier Styles makes his ring debut in a doubleheader with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods for the Raw titles.
Randy Orton versus Fiend: Orton tried to take out both Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss at the end of Raw this week, but got another Mandavo and Sister Abigail from a badly burned Fiend. The match was confirmed a few moments later.
