WWE WrestleMania XL Spoilers 2024

WWE has yet to announce any official matches for this card.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 11/27/2023)

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Title Scene

I'm fearful of the idea that WWE is still trying to get The Rock vs. Roman Reigns, and they'll still put everything else on hold until that either becomes an official reality or is definitely off the books. Considering Royal Rumble is at Tropicana Field in Florida, I'm very suspicious The Rock can win that and challenge Roman.

The backup plan is probably Cody Rhodes, unless the rumor is true that Roman is going to be retiring or taking a huge amount of time off and that they want Cody to win the championship to offset that and truly "finish the story." I'm hoping above all scenarios that Cody does beat Roman (even though I hope Roman doesn't retire as a result).

If it ends up being The Rock fighting Roman just for the sake of it, then Roman has to win and we'll just be waiting another whole year for Mania 41 to be the only time he'll drop the title. I don't want another 12 months of not having Reigns around, holding those titles hostage.

World Heavyweight Championship Title Scene

After going through some different ideas throughout the year, like Gunther winning the Royal Rumble and beating Rollins for this belt, once the CM Punk rumors started, he jumped straight to the top of my list. Now that he is officially back, I'm sold on the idea that he's winning the Royal Rumble and challenging Seth Rollins in the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 40.

Both Women's Championship Title Scenes

Becky Lynch vs. Rhea Ripley for Raw's Women's World Championship?

Bianca Belair vs. Charlotte Flair for SmackDown's Women's Championship?

Jade Cargill is interesting to think about. I could see them booking her in a featured match against Flair or Belair if they aren't in that title match, but I don't know who would fight Flair/Belair or Iyo Sky if that were the case. I can't picture it being Iyo versus Kairi Sane or Bayley, for example. It's hard for me to believe, as well, that Cargill will make her debut and immediately get a title shot at WrestleMania, so I think it's more likely she's in a non-title featured midcard match.

What else is interesting is that Becky is currently the NXT women's champion. How long they want to keep that belt on her is up in the air. My guess is this is happening just while they're negotiating television rights and once a deal is made, this main roster attention on Tuesday nights will slow down drastically, Becky will drop the belt (Cora Jade? Blair Davenport? Roxanne Perez?) and then go right for the top title on Raw as she's the top babyface on Monday nights and there's no bigger match for Ripley than The Man.

Jey Uso vs. Jimmy Uso

This feels like a lock. Maybe Solo Sikoa blurs the line and doesn't end up 100% backing Jimmy? Maybe we get a Triple Threat?

Intercontinental Championship Title Scene

I'm assuming Gunther will still be champion, and he'll be going up against Brock Lesnar.

If it isn't Lesnar, then I'm drawing a blank on who else could fill in that blank. Maybe Randy Orton?

United States Championship Title Scene

Logan Paul is most likely holding this title until WrestleMania. Two potential options I could see him dropping it to are LA Knight and Kevin Owens. It makes more sense—to me, at least—for this to be LA Knight's spot, but the rumor mill has Owens vs Paul, and he is the more established name of the two. If I were a betting man, I'd bet more on Owens being in this match and Knight doing something else, like winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, or having a non-title grudge match with someone. I did think for a hot minute that Paul would potentially fight Randy Orton, but that ship has sailed with the US title win. If it isn't Paul against Owens or Knight, then I'm lost.

Men's Tag Team Championship Title Scene

Will these belts still be Raw and SmackDown separate, but unified in defense? Are they going to be actually unified into one set of titles instead? Or will they be fully separated once more as Raw Tag Team Championship and SmackDown Tag Team Championship?

Let's break down those scenarios.

  • Both Belts "Unified" (Current Setup OR Actually Unified) = This probably should revolve around The Judgment Day. Maybe it's still on Priest and Finn Balor. Maybe by then, they've switched it up and it is on Balor and JD McDonagh or something. But they can't just do them against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, so if it is Judgment Day, maybe against Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa? Maybe it's a multi-team setup with KO/SZ, #DIY and a team like The Street Profits to have two heel teams and two babyface teams?
  • Two Separate Titles = This is where I could see WWE playing into #DIY having the Raw tag titles and maybe The Street Profits having the SmackDown tag titles. Possibly LWO. Maybe even Pretty Deadly, but I doubt it. I wouldn't bet on Brawling Brutes or OC holding the blue brand's belts. Possibility they give them to Austin Theory and Grayson Waller, though.

Women's Tag Team Title Scene

Ha! You think WWE is going to put any effort into planning out what's going on with these titles until maybe 2 weeks before the show? C'mon now. They haven't cared about this division since before the belts even existed.

As a future projection goes, though, it seems like you can always count on Raquel Rodriguez being involved in these titles. More than likely, this is the multi-woman mashup that we've been getting. I'd venture a guess to say Chelsea Green and Piper Niven go up against Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark, possibly Asuka and Kairi Sane of Damage CTRL, and maybe a fourth team of Raquel and someone (Shotzi? Zelina Vega? Liv Morgan?).

Don't count out other teams like Natalya and Tegan Nox, Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell, Katana Chance and Kayden Carter, Maxxine Dupri and Ivy Nile (somewhat), Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn...or even seeing new teams form, like Nia Jax teaming with someone (though Tamina just makes the most sense, but she's been MIA). Then again, if they do another "Women's Showcase" match with 4 teams, maybe that's where those teams come in. Or, maybe WWE brings back a female equivalent of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal? Can we finally get my pitch of the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal?

Other Feuds

  • I really hope we get Cody Rhodes beating Roman Reigns for the title, but if not, I think there's a chance Rhodes vs. Randy Orton takes place. Keep that in mind. Alternatively, if Orton isn't involved in that and we DO get Rhodes vs Reigns, then Orton (as mentioned) could be either an opponent for Gunther, Drew McIntyre, or maybe leading a group against The Judgment Day. I still don't know how The Judgment Day will be factored into the card outside of possibly a multi-team setup for those titles, with Dominik Mysterio not necessarily competing (as he could be on the Stand & Deliver card for NXT to compensate). Tough calls to make.
  • Names like Shinsuke Nakamura, while big enough to certainly have a spot on the card, will probably be relegated to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, whether that happens here or on the SmackDown prior to Mania. I could see the same applying to people like AJ Styles and maybe even Sami Zayn, sadly. Solo Sikoa would be arguably my top pick to win it.
  • Grayson Waller Effect segment with someone like The Rock as a special guest?
  • We're getting something between Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio. Whether that is a multi-man match with people like Carlito, Dragon Lee, Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde, and even potentially Angel Garza, Humberto Carrillo and Bad Bunny getting involved, or it's just Escobar against Mysterio, I do think it's going to be on the card in some fashion.
