• WWE Is Looking For A New Major Attraction For WrestleMania 38 After Shane McMahon’s Exit
As we have reported before, Shane McMahon was scheduled to have a match at WrestleMania 38.
Shane wanted to face Austin Theory, but WWE Officials had pitched a match against Seth Rollins.
However, none of these matches are scheduled to take place now, as Shane won’t be working WWE’s biggest show of 2022.
According to Wrestlevotes, WWE is now looking for a new major attraction for the Show of Shows:
“Source states the spot Shane McMahon was going to have on the WrestleMania card was to be positioned near the top. Therefore, WWE now needs a new ‘major attraction’ matchup outside of the titles. This goes w/o saying, but the WM card is still in complete flux. It’s quite amazing.”
If WWE is looking to bring a major star from the past back for a big match, then the only option they have is Goldberg, for which WWE will have to sign him to a new deal, as his current contract expires at Elimination Chamber 2022, where he will face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.
The Undertaker is retired, Triple H is dealing with health issues, John Cena noted that he won’t be available for WrestleMania 38 due to Hollywood work, Batista is retired and has no intentions of wrestling again, and as usual The Rock won’t be available for a match.
The following 2 matches have been officially announced for WrestleMania 38 (which will likely be the main events of the 2 nights):
– Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar
– SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
