Backstage News On Dolph Ziggler's First WrestleMania Singles Match

Backstage News On Dolph Ziggler's First WrestleMania Singles Match

According to Rajah, the WWE Champion said: "There could be a chance of headlining WrestleMania this year". In other words, I'm guessing just like you are. Ultimately, though, this should be a very good match if the five-way teaser on Smackdown is any indication.

The Usos are favorites (-175) against The New Day (+125).

According to Paddy Power's betting odds (H/T Bet Wrestling), the only titles where there's any question about whether a title will change hands lands in the USA championship match and the tag team title battle. Hopefully, all of the matches deliver in the ring, but sometimes they fall short of expectations because of the reasons I rattled off earlier. In total, there are six matches on the card, and every Smackdown title is on the line.

Charlotte Flair vs. Ruby Riott for the Smackdown Women's Championship: Congratulations to Riott for seemingly having her name drawn out of a hat and being named Charlotte's throwaway challenger of the month. I assume that will change once Charlotte gets through this match and goes on to face Asuka at WrestleMania. Which team will go into WrestleMania as the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions? Still, I am genuinely looking forward to seeing what type of match these two can produce.

Bobby Roode will be putting his United States title on the line against The Viper Randy Orton.

Charlotte is an overwhelming favorite to retain the Women's title (-1000) over Riott (+500). The former WWE Champion has been fighting tooth and nail to get a crack at Roode's title, but was frustrated to have the match booked without him, despite managing to stand tall over both Roode and Orton during multiple encounters since the Royal Rumble. The Viper was then attacked by Mahal. The WWE SmackDown Women's Champion was attacked during a segment in which she was wondering about her WrestleMania opponent.

The 2018 Royal Rumble victor will be going up against Rusev, who challenged him on the latest episode of WWE SmackDown.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev: Creative clearly wants to send Nakamura into WrestleMania with some momentum. The tricky part is making sure that the Rusev Day loving fans in the building don't make Rusev feel like the bigger star.

On the latest episode of WWE SmackDown, Becky Lynch defeated the Money in the Bank contract victor Carmella by submission.

Which matches will the fans remember most from this show? Flip a coin. Heads.
