WWE reportedly making huge changes to Wrestlemania 35

courtesy WWE

WWE was hell-bent on making history with the 35th edition of Wrestlemania set to emanate on April 7th. Going by the speculations, this one was going to be the longest of all-time with 17 matches on the card. Including the two hours of the kick-off show, the length of the show could last up to eight hours.

Rajah.com reported that WWE is re-considering the match card of Wrestlemania 35 since it would be painful for the fans to sit for that long time. So they might just decide to trim down two or three matches and keep the show consisting of 14 matches.

As per PWInsider.com, WWE is now thinking of dropping the two men’s tag team championship matches off Wrestlemania card. In that case we may not see the Hardy Boyz vs. Usos dream bout. These left names from the tag team division should end up competing at the 6th annual Andre the Giant Battle Royal. As much as we’d like to see separate tag team title matches, time-limit might not allow the creative team to arrange this.
