Rumors that could happen at WrestleMania 35
This time every year, right before WrestleMania, we start hearing potential rumors of what could happen on the grandest stage of them all. We always get many surprises, some that we didn't expect (especially if you don't read spoilers or rumors). This year is no different. We complied some of the best and most important rumors for this year's WrestleMania. Click the arrow to read the rumors you need to know.
Gronkowski shows up at WrestleMania 35
Although this is unlikely, Gronkowski has appeared at WrestleMania before. Gronkowski helped Mojo Rawley win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33. Since retiring from the NFL, Gronkowski's name has been in the news, attached to WWE quite often. Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Mojo Rawley, and more, have been found mentioning that they want to sign Gronkowski to a WWE deal. Maybe unlikely, but you shouldn't be surprised if he was involved in the show somehow, possible the Andre the Giant Memorial again. If Gronk does indeed sign with the WWE in the future, it will be another huge signing for the organization.
Conor McGregor helps Becky Lynch
Although this may also seem unlikely, McGregor did announce his "retirement" on social media and has been invited to the WWE by Becky Lynch personally. Lynch has also been seen training with McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh in Ireland. McGregor responded on Twitter telling Lynch that if she needed backup at Mania, he would have her back. With Champ Champ implications in the main event of WrestleMania 35, what a perfect way to become a Champ Champ with the OG UFC Champ Champ in your corner. If this happens, I would absolutely freak out and jump out of my seat! McGregor has the personality that is perfect for a WWE run. It's worth noting that Finn Balor recently tweeted at the Notorious one saying, "See you at 'mania brother." So who knows, never say never. We could see McGregor in a WWE ring this weekend.
Daniel Cormier interferes in Lesnar match
Conor McGregor may not be the only Champ Champ at Mania. Most recently, a video surfaced of Daniel Cormier celebrating Seth Rollins cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Roman Reigns after defeating Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship. There has also been talk about Cormier vs Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight championship at UFC 241 in August. With Lesnar needing a fight camp and need to enter the USADA test pool, he could very well drop the title at WrestleMania 35, thanks to DC interfering.
Four Horsewomen of MMA debut at Mania
Baszler has run through the entire NXT women's division and recently defended her belt at NXT TakeOver: New York against Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Kairi Sane. There's no way Shayna stays on NXT much longer, and going into the main roster with the NXT Women's Championship would be huge for her. The goal was to always have this Horsewomen of MMA vs Horsewomen of WWE feud ever since Jessamyn Duke and Marina Sharif signed with the organization. Because there is nothing left on NXT for Baszler, and both Duke and Sharif have gotten their fair share of in-ring experience, it's time for Ronda Rousey's backup to make their debut. Some bad guys have to win at WrestleMania, and this will be the bummer of the night for many. But it could be likely that the Four Horsewomen help Rousey retain the title against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch on the grandest stage of them all. Or assist in an attack after the match.
John Cena will have a match at WrestleMania
As we know, Kurt Angle is having his final match against Baron Corbin on the grandest stage of them all. Why Corbin? I mean, yes, there is history, but it doesn't make sense for Angle's final match. It would only make sense to have Cena give Angle a proper farewell, similarly to how they met: Cena answering Angle's open challenge. The more I think about this, the more I truly hope it happens. I doubt Cena faces Taker or Elias. It's going to end up being Kurt Angle for his official retirement match.
New tag team belts will be showcased
It has been rumored that the WWE plans to unveil a new design for the tag team championships on both SmackDown and Raw. It might seem as though WWE have left any concerns for their tag team division's presence at WrestleMania 35 until the last minute, because of this. It was revealed that legendary Dave Millican has designed a set of fresh tag titles with the championships apparently already in the hands of WWE officials in New York. Although it has yet to be confirmed, this could be very likely tomorrow night. It's about time, the Women's Tag Titles were beautiful and very different than the current design.
