• Possible Change In Plan For 2 Title Matches At WrestleMania 35
The Revival is going to defend the RAW Tag Team Titles against the team of Aleister Black & Ricochet on tonight’s episode of RAW.
The Wrestling Observer previously reported that this RAW match would most likely be used to set up a match between these two teams at WrestleMania 35, but it looks like that’s not the case anymore.
Wrestling Observer is now reporting that The Revival is scheduled to start a new program and defend the RAW Tag Team Titles against a new team at WrestleMania 35 this Sunday.
On the SmackDown side, The Usos are scheduled to defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles in a multi-team match. The plan was for them to defend against The Bar, The New Day and Aleister Black & Ricochet.
However, WWE used the team of Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura in place on Black & Ricochet at recent Live Events for the above stated match and these Live Event matches are usually practice matches for the big PPVs. So this began speculation that Rusev & Nakamura might be a part of the SmackDown Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania 35 (and that’s why they weren’t added to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal).
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
