New Wrestlemania 36 Title Matches Announced On WWE Raw; Updated Card
On last night’s WrestleMania 36 go-home edition of WWE RAW, it was confirmed that WWE United States Champion Andrade is currently dealing with a rib injury.
His manager, Zelina Vega announced the same before he was about to team with Seth Rollins and Angel Garza to face Kevin Owens and RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) in six-man tag team action.
Zelina Vega then mentioned WWE NXT Superstar Austin Theory will be Andrade’s replacement for the tag team match on WWE RAW. In the end, Owens and The Profits got the win as Owens was able to hit the Stunner on Garza securing the pinfall count. Following this, it was confirmed that Austin Theory will also be replacing Andrade in the scheduled WrestleMania match over the Raw tag team titles against Profits.
Andrade’s rib injury was reportedly “very minor” but he could not be medically cleared to compete for last week’s WrestleMania 36 tapings. He suffered the injury during last week’s WWE RAW when he and Garza teamed up to defeat Ricochet and Cedric Alexander.
They had a post-match segment with the Street Profits where the injury might have taken place. As a result, NXT star Austin Theory will make his main roster debut at WrestleMania to work as Vega’s new client.
Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss vs. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka and Kairi Sane were also added to the WrestleMania 36 match card. The titles will be on the line as pledged by Alexa Bliss for weeks.
This past Friday night on FOX, Bliss pinned Asuka in a singles contest on SmackDown which worked as an inducer for WWE while confirming the match. With that being said, the current WrestleMania 36 card stands as follows,
