    Yep. If it’s the biggest show of the Summer (Wrestlemania Jr.), it will probably be a longer show again, with a Cena match, and IC match, and another tag match. We’ll probably get 11 matches with 2 of them being pre-show.

    I honestly wish they would do more with the uk championship i really do

  • CC

    Both main titles, both womens titles, the cruiser title but no IC and only one tag championship, yet we have Orton vs Rusev? (probably just so they dont leave Orton out and can bury Rusev even more)
    Next we will see Cena vs someone just so they can squeeze him onto the card as well.

    Chances are, the missing titles will be relegated to the pre-show card.
