So far, everything was going smoothly for WWE, but following the announcement of a fresh start by Vince McMahon, WWE's officials are reevaluating their plans.
The same goes for Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 35 PPV.
As per the rumours, many matches were planned to take place at WrestleMania 35, but because of what has transpired in recent weeks, it seems a new card for WM 35 is being considered.
Today we've come with the list of biggest and most prominent plans for WM 35 that are in rumours. So, let’s get right into the list.
Follow Sportskeeda for the latest WWE news, rumours and all other wrestling news.
#7 AJ Styles vs Randy Orton
We haven't had a chance to see AJ Styles vs Randy Orton on the big stage such as WrestleMania. The only time we saw these two men coming across each other was in 2017 when they fought for an opportunity to headline WrestleMania.
The two did come across each other last week when they squared off in a Fatal 5-way for the No.1 contender's spot for the WWE Title at Royal Rumble.
But, according to Joes Peisich of Barnburner‘s No Holds Barred podcast (h/t Ringside News), “AJ Styles vs Randy Orton is currently pencilled in for WrestleMania 35.” This could explain why AJ Styles recently lost the WWE Championship to Daniel Bryan.
Maybe this was necessary for Styles in order to face Orton at WrestleMania 35.
Therefore in the coming months, you could see Styles and Orton involving in a quarrel. And that can happen as early as next month since Styles is yet to face Daniel Bryan at the Royal Rumble PPV for the WWE Championship.
Hence, Styles' match with Bryan at RR could be the last match before "The Phenomenal One" gets involved in a feud with 'The Viper" Randy Orton.
#6 Shawn Michaels vs Daniel Bryan
Over a long period of time, we haven't received a chance to see Shawn Michaels coming across Daniel Bryan ever, thanks to the early retirement of HBK from in-ring competition.
However, according to Joe Peisich of Barnburner‘s No Holds Barred podcast (h/t Ringside News), "WWE is currently planning to book a Student vs Teacher match at WrestleMania 35."
Though this match sounds good in many ways, and we'd be happy if it was done a few years ago, but booking this match at this point of time will be a huge mistake as no one wants to see it, following the announcement of new-era.
Moreover, if WWE will organize this match on the grandest stage of all, it'll be a huge mistake as Bryan is the current WWE Champion and there's no way that he's dropping it before WrestleMania 35, which means he will fight HBK with the WWE Championship on the line.
Therefore, nobody wants to see this match happening at WrestleMania 35, let alone putting the WWE Championship on the line.
#5 Batista vs Triple H
We've never ever seen Batista coming across "The Game" Triple H. The same was mentioned at SmackDown 1000 when Batista teased a match between him and HHH at this year's WrestleMania.
Batista said, "HHH has done everything in his career except beating him". Hence, this statement made by him has led many people in believing that they will finally see these two legends in the same ring at the same time.
#4 Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair
This triple threat match between Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair is being rumoured for a very long time. Why not?
It's expected to be the main event this year's WrestleMania, and women in the main event of WM for the first time is definitely a big thing.
Though this triple threat match sounds pretty amazing, this is not the match that WWE universe wants to see. Because if WWE books this match for WM 35, we'll not get to see Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey, which is a match that every fan wants to see happening, more than anything.
And booking this triple threat match will kill the chances of this match taking place in the near future as WWE ends most of their storylines at WrestleMania. Therefore, I think WWE should book Lynch vs Rousey, rather than Lynch vs Rousey vs Flair.
#3 Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey
The match between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey was called off due to the injury sustained by Lynch a week before Survivor Series PPV.
This change in plans has led many people in believing that this match might take place in the main event of WrestleMania 35. Why not?
The recent heel turn of Becky Lynch has taken her to a whole new level. And a match between these two women in the main event of WrestleMania 35 is worth watching. But only time will tell if we get to see a Rousey vs Lynch matchup at WM 35.
#2 Batista vs Randy Orton
At WrestleMania 35, a match b/w Batista and Randy Ortonhave more chances of happening than Batista vs Triple H.
Triple H suffering a torn pectoral muscle at the WWE Crown Jewel event is the reason that Batista vs Orton matchup might happen.
So, unless HHH recovers from the injury that he sustained recently, Batista vs Orton is more likely to happen at this year's WrestleMania only if the animal still wants to be a part of it.
#1 Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins
A future match between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins has been up in the air for a while now. In fact, Seth Rollins is the current favourite to win this year's Men's Royal Rumble match.
Also, the plans for this match was reported to be nixed following the match between Rollins and Dean Ambrose at TLC PPV, but it seems that the match is again on the table.
Moreover, Brock Lesnar is rumoured to leave WWE around WrestleMania, so this might be the heads up for Rollins to win the Universal Championship from Lesnar at WM 35. Therefore, only time will tell if we'll see this rivalry getting renewed soon, till then let's see what happens at Men's Royal Rumble match.
