WrestleMania 35 – The Complete Preview

Wrestling events don’t come bigger than WrestleMania. The WWE’s flagship annual event is the Superbowl of sports entertainment and attracts tens of millions of viewers from across the world. Last year’s WrestleMania was a blast – one of the most insane spectacles ever put on by World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. This year looks set to top it, though.

Hosted by Alexa Bliss, WrestleMania 35 is being billed as having ‘The First Ever Women’s Main Event at WrestleMania’. When Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch step into the squared circle, it’ll be the biggest women’s WWE moment yet. But they’ll be plenty of dudes wrestling too. And all kinds of crazy action going on…

 

When is WrestleMania 35?

Exact start times for specific matches are hard to predict, but we can give you the general time…

We’re looking at around 10.30pm as the time the event should get underway on Sunday April the 7th.

 

Where’s it going down?

WrestleMania 35

This year’s event comes from one of the biggest names in US sporting stadia – the MetLife Stadium. Home to both the New York Giants and the New York Jets, it’s a hugely impressive place and perfect for an event like WrestleMania.

Built at a cost of $1.6 billion, it was the most expensive stadium ever built when it opened nine years ago.

Although it’s the home of pigskin in New York City, weirdly the 82,550 capacity stadium isn’t in the city. It’s eight miles away in the much smaller city of East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Odds & Predictions

Wrestlemania

Here are some of the very best odds for the main matches at WrestleMania 35, along with our predictions on how we think they might go:

Ronda Rousey (5/2) vs. Becky Lynch (1/5) vs. Charlotte Flair (8/1)
Flair’s unlikely to upset the big hitters here. While Ronda’s losing the plot at the moment, so we’re backing the mighty Becky Lynch.

Brock Lesnar (17/10) vs. Seth Rollins (2/5)
We see a new champion here… Seth Rollins.

Batista (17/10) vs. Triple H (2/5)
This could be the last time we ever see Batista in the ring. And we think we’ll see him lose. Triple H to win.

Randy Orton (4/6) vs. AJ Styles (5/4)
We’re backing the slight outsider AJ Styles for this one.

Shane McMahon (5/2) vs. The Miz (1/4)
The Miz should win this battle of the former tag team pals.

Kurt Angle (2/5) vs. Baron Corbin (17/10)
Kurt Angle to win his last ever wrestling match.

Samoa Joe (1/3) vs. Rey Mysterio (2/1)
We’re tipping the bigger odds on the Mexican here. Rey Mysterio to win at 2/1.

Buddy Murphy (1/5) vs. Tony Nese (3/1) 
Buddy Murphy to keep hold of his belt.
