Following the March 28 broadcast of Monday Night Raw, three extra matches were added to the WrestleMania 38 schedule.
It’s WrestleMania week, and the two-night extravaganza is just days away. The March 28 broadcast of Monday Night Raw was titled “WrestleMania Raw” and was not a regular episode.
However, three more matches were added to the “most spectacular two-night WrestleMania in history” on the broadcast.
Let’s start with the single bout added during Raw. In a two-on-one handicap battle, Omos defeated the Viking Raiders by a count-out. Lashley, a former WWE champion, makes his first appearance since a post-match interview with Omos in February.
After attempting to take down Omos by running the ropes and hitting the monster with a shoulder block, Lashley was eventually successful. The match was announced for WrestleMania Sunday later that night.
Seth Rollins met with Mr. McMahon prior to the show after threatening to shut down Raw if he wasn’t added to WrestleMania after losing a number of matches to get on the card.
McMahon claimed that he didn’t have to go through all of that and that all he had to do was ask him to join the show. Rollins was then informed that he would be given a match at WrestleMania and that the opponent would be chosen by McMahon.
The bout between Rollins and a “mystery opponent” has been announced for the Saturday show.
A tag team fight between Kofi Kingston and the returning King Woods, who will face Sheamus and Ridge Holland on Saturday, has also been announced prior to Raw. On the March 25 broadcast of Friday Night SmackDown, Woods made his return, quickly defeating Holland.
It’ll be fascinating to see if more matches are added to “WrestleMania SmackDown” on Friday, but for now, here’s how the official card looks after the last episode of Raw before the “Showcase of the Immortals.”
