What Is WWE Wrestlemania 39? What Are The 10 Big Expected Fights?
The annual WWE flagship event, WrestleMania 39, is scheduled to take place this weekend and has been the subject of several riveting pre-show storylines.
Major surprises are in store for the audience, as previous champions, social media stars, and WWE icons will all make debuts.
Roman Reigns, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, will defend his title against well-known talent Cody Rhodes at the two-night event.
On Night 2 of WrestleMania 39, Reigns, who has held the title for more than 900 days, will defend it in what may be the final match of his illustrious career.
The United States Championship matchup between WWE great John Cena and rising star Austin Theory will begin Night 1 of the event.
Brock Lesnar, a former WWE and UFC champion, as well as social media sensation Logan Paul are slated to make appearances at WrestleMania 39.
Throughout the course of the two nights, there will be a total of 13 matches, six of which are championship contests.
Vince McMahon, the owner of WWE, conceptualized WrestleMania in 1985, and it swiftly rose to the top of the pro wrestling world.
Top superstars including Hulk Hogan and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, as well as special guests like Mr. T and Cyndi Lauper, competed at WrestleMania I at Madison Square Garden.
Since then, WrestleMania has established itself as a tradition in the wrestling world, drawing crowds every year to celebrate the conclusion of the biggest stories in the WWE. On both Saturday and Sunday, Peacock will stream the event live.
The Bloodline faction, which comprises Reigns’ actual family members as well as his cousins Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, and Solo Sikoa, is one of the major plotlines of WrestleMania 39.
The Undisputed WWE Universal Title and the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships are held by The Bloodline, who have dominated the WWE product for almost three years.
Because of the fact that both of Reigns’ and Rhodes’ fathers are WWE royalty, the two second-generation wrestlers have been engaged in a feud recently. Rhodes won the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble, earning him a shot at the championship.
Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, who have been engaged in conflict with The Bloodline this year, will oppose The Usos as they defend their tag team championship. Before abandoning The Bloodline at the Royal Rumble, Zayn was even referred to as the “Honorary Uce.”
Other interesting storylines to follow involve Charlotte Flair defending her SmackDown Women’s Title against Rhea Ripley in a repeat of their WrestleMania 36 confrontation, and Paul trying to win the respect of the WWE by defeating seasoned wrestler Seth Rollins.
When WrestleMania 39 takes place over two nights, WWE fans can anticipate an exciting weekend of action, shocks, and epic storylines.
