WrestleMania 37 is a very special event for the WWE because it will be the first major wrestling show to have 10,000+ fans in over a year.

The match card for the two-day event is slowly taking shape on WWE progamming, and Dave Meltzer provided some new updates in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

As of this writing, eight matches have been confirmed for the PPV. On Saturday, April 10th, the main event will see Bobby Lashley defend the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre. Sasha Banks will put her SmackDown Women's title on the line against Bianca Belair on night one. Bad Bunny's singles match against The Miz has also been announced for the first day.

The main event on Sunday, April 11th, will be a triple threat match for the Universal title featuring Edge, Daniel Bryan, and Roman Reigns. All the creative changes for the Universal title match have been covered in a separate article.

Plus, Rhea Ripley will face Asuka for the RAW Women's Championship, while The Fiend and Randy Orton are expected to battle in a stipulation match, which hasn't been announced yet.

The New Day will defend their newly-won RAW Tag Team titles against AJ Styles and Omos. The last confirmed match for the PPV is a singles contest between Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon.

In addition to the confirmed matches, Meltzer noted down the other rumored matches expected to be added to the match card.
