WrestleMania 35 Card Could Feature 17 Matches [Rumor]

There are currently 10 confirmed matches for WrestleMania 35, but it seems like the creative team is far from done in planning out the rest of the show - which is less than three weeks away.

According to Alfred Konuwa of Forbes, WrestleMania 35 "will likely become the longest WWE pay-per-view of all time," and he suggests that there could be "upwards of 17 matches" on the card.

Why is WWE planning such a lengthy pay-per-view with so many matches? Konuwa suggests the company wants to get as many wrestlers as they can on the big show. Furthermore, Konuwa noted the importance of "employee morale," with All Elite Wrestling starting up soon.

The Universal, Raw Women's, Cruiserweight, United States and SmackDown Women's Championships will all be put on the line at WrestleMania. The other matches have A.J. Styles going up against Randy Orton, Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin Triple H vs. Batista, The Miz vs. Shane McMahon plus the annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

However, it's been widely suggested by multiple reports that Corbin won't actually compete against Angle, and that the latter will face another opponent in his sendoff match. John Cena, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and The Undertaker are also among the many big-named stars who haven't been given opponents yet.

It's also safe to assume that The Revival and The Usos will defend the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships, respectively. It'd be a surprise if Bayley and Sasha Banks didn't defend the new WWE Women's Tag Team Championships, either. Add it all up, and there are still plenty of matches that have yet to be confirmed to the card - but we know they'll be announced soon.

What This Means

As pointed out by Konuwa, WrestleMania IV holds the record for most matches on the show's card with 16 matches, but it looks like WrestleMania 35 could break that. WWE has obviously been worried about losing disgruntled superstars to rival promotions, and one way to satisfy their performers is to give them all a spot on the show. Love or hate the extremely long pay-per-views, WWE seems ready to go great lengths in ensuring the bulk of their talents get to compete in East Rutherford.
