The WWE is ready to start the Road to WrestleMania. While everything starts officially at the Royal Rumble, there will be lots of stories that startup leading to that big event as well. The Rumble will only see two of the people getting world title shots at WrestleMania -- one male and one female competitor -- but there will be so many other angles and storylines kicking off as well.
Most major titles will be on the line and the biggest superstars in the WWE will take part in the biggest show of the year. Some will get a chance to shine in the biggest matches of the year and others will get a chance to steal the show on the undercard. With WrestleMania 35 promising to be the start to a new era of the WWE, here is a look at what your 10 favorite superstars are rumored to be doing at WrestleMania 35.
10. BECKY LYNCH
Becky Lynch is on a crash course with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35. The two were supposed to fight at Survivor Series but Lynch ended up with a concussion and Charlotte Flair took her place. Charlotte was supposed to get the match at WrestleMania against Rousey but Lynch's popularity is undeniable.
Now, there are rumors that the WWE could make this a three-way and include Charlotte, who destroyed Rousey at Survivor Series with a kendo stick. Rousey cost both Charlotte and Lynch the SmackDown women's title at TLC, so the table is set. Right now, the only thing that most people agree with is that Lynch and Rousey will wrestle at WrestleMania 35.
WrestleMania means one thing -- an Undertaker match. Even after Undertaker seemingly retired after laying his hat and coat in the ring after he lost to Roman Reigns, he came back the next year to beat John Cena in a squash match. He then returned three more times in 2018 to beat Rusev and lose to Triple H and DX.
Don't believe that Undertaker will skip out on WrestleMania 35. The question now is whether or not Undertaker will end his career with a three-match losing streak. The biggest WWE rumor is that Undertaker will battle Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 35.
8. SETH ROLLINS
Early WWE rumors indicated that Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns would battle in a three-way match at WrestleMania 35, started by Ambrose turning on Reigns. However, Reigns' leukemia diagnosis got in the way of that match and Ambrose turned on Rollins instead.
There is almost no chance that Rollins and Ambrose will battle at WrestleMania 35 if it is for the Intercontinental title. Instead, there are heavy WWE rumors that Rollins is headed back to the main event scene and might be the man to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship.
7. THE MIZ
The Miz looked like he might be headed for a match with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35. However, after Bryan turned heel, those plans seemed to fly out the window. Miz could turn face but he is the most natural heel SmackDown Live has. As a result, there is a new storyline brewing.
Miz has been sucking up to Shane McMahon since Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. At that event, Miz fell to injury and Shane won the Best in the World tournament, subbing for him. They have been playing the story of Miz wanting to team with Shane but it looks like this might lead to McMahon's annual WrestleMania match.
6. DREW MCINTYRE
The one WWE superstar that looks to be in for the biggest push in 2019 is Drew McIntyre. If Seth Rollins gets the Universal Championship shot at Brock Lesnar and wins the title from him, the biggest odds indicate that McIntyre will be the man that Rollins feuds with first.
That means that McIntyre will get a huge push into WrestleMania to make him the most obvious contender. Winning the Andre the Giant battle royal is one way, but seeing how that has never resulted in a big push for the winner, it is not big enough for McIntyre. However, McIntyre beating someone like Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 35 would be all it takes to move him to the main event level.
When Asuka came up to the WWE main roster, she was undefeated since signing with the WWE while working in NXT. She was even protected and surrendered her NXT title to move up instead of losing to anyone. That all came to an end when she lost to Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 34.
However, while Asuka disappeared from title contention after that, she won more matches in 2018 on television than any other female. Now, after WWE TLC, she is the SmackDown women's champion and we don't expect her to lose it anytime soon. Asuka will be at WrestleMania 35 as the champion, but the only question will be who challenges her for the title.
4. AJ STYLES
AJ Styles is involved in an interesting storyline that sees him at odds with the McMahon family. Vince McMahon tried to bring out the animal in Styles and was rewarded when AJ laid him out. The next week, Shane McMahon and Styles had to be separated. Styles is in line for a huge push and a hopeful change in character.
There are a few thoughts. One is that Styles will start wrestling with an edge and fight Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 for the world title. Another is that he forms a version of the Bullet Club on SmackDown Live. A third option is winning the Royal Rumble and being the man to beat Brock Lesnar. Whatever he does, AJ Styles will be in one of the most important matches at WrestleMania 35 and will probably steal the show.
3. SASHA BANKS & BAYLEY
The WWE is creating a women's tag team championship. There are some serious contenders to the new titles, including the Riott Squad, IIconics, Nia Jax & Tamina, and Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. However, the one team that is likely to win it all is the Boss and Hug Connection -- Bayley and Sasha Banks.
When WrestleMania 35 rolls around, it will either be the finals of the women's tag team tournament or a match where the titles are either awarded or defended. No matter what type of match it is, the one team guaranteed to be there is the Boss and Hug Connection.
2. THE ROCK
There were some strong rumors that the WWE was bringing back Dwayne Johnson for a single's run to lead to WrestleMania 35. The rumors indicated that The Rock could have won the Royal Rumble or he could have just come out and challenged his cousin Roman Reigns to a Universal Championship match.
This would lead to WrestleMania 35 with Roman Reigns vs. The Rock. Whether or not this is true, it is meaningless now after Reigns leukemia diagnosis. However, there are rumors that the WWE has big plans for The Rock at WrestleMania 35 as he could end up as the headliner for the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame class.
1. BRAUN STROWMAN
Braun Strowman is in an awkward situation. He has gotten a number of Universal Championship matches against Brock Lesnar and he has lost every time. Lesnar has pinned him cleanly more than once. At Royal Rumble, the two will fight again and most people assume Lesnar will win again.
The main thought is that Lesnar will make it to WrestleMania 35 and will lose his title there. What does that mean for Braun Strowman? He loses too much to Lesnar and that has hurt his credibility. There isn't much he could do at WrestleMania that could help him. One thought is putting someone else over like Drew McIntyre. The only other real option is the Andre the Giant battle royal -- where he just destroys everyone.
