WrestleMania 35: Predicted match order of the PPV
- What will the match order be at WrestleMania 35?
Match order is extremely important in wrestling, particularly on a seven-hour show. WWE might not go with what's mentioned in this article, but this is what I think is the most likely order.
I'm going to skip the 3 pre-show matches because their order doesn't really matter. Sorry everyone on the pre-show, but after Survivor Series, when Michael Cole literally told us the pre-show doesn't count, there aren't many folks left who care about it.
Moving on to the main card.
#1. The Miz vs. Shane McMahon
The reason I think this will open the show is partly that Shane is Vince's son, and as much as we don't want to see him wrestle, we have to for some reason.
As it's a falls count anywhere match, it may not end up being as bad as we imagine. The match will probably be incredibly chaotic which would be a hot way to open to the show, much like Shane vs. AJ at WrestleMania 33.
While I don't think it should go on first, I think it holds the most chances of doing so.
#2. AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton
This could be a good place for this match.
While it won't match the craziness of the opener, it can have a slow start and hopefully build to an exciting finish with either the RKO or a Styles Clash. Both men are great workers, so having a well-worked match should be a normal day at the office for them.
They shouldn't go too slow but there is no need to start big if the opening match is a wild brawl. Hopefully, it won't get the same treatment from the crowd as other matches that went second at mania like Jericho vs Owens. While the crowd wasn't completely dead, they were not into it much either.
