New women’s matches for WrestleMania 37, Bad Bunny’s WrestleMania debut changed to tag team match

Apr 5, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

The Miz and John Morrison vs. Damian Priest and rapper Bad Bunny is now official for Night One of WrestleMania 37.

WWE had previously announced The Miz vs. Bunny in a singles match for WrestleMania, but it was recently reported that Priest and Morrison were not announced due to minor injuries. The same report noted that the singles match may be changed to the originally-planned tag team match, if Morrison and Priest were able to compete. It looks like they have been cleared as the change was confirmed during tonight’s go-home edition of RAW. The tag team match was the original plan going back to earlier this year.

Tonight’s go-home RAW saw Miz and Morrison use red paint to vandalize Bunny’s $3.6 million Bugatti that he and Priest drove to the venue in. Miz and Morrison later ambushed Bunny as he checked out the damage, attacking him from behind. That led to Bunny and Priest hitting the ring and issuing the challenge for the tag team match at WrestleMania. Miz and Morrison then interrupted on the big screen and accepted the challenge.

In other WrestleMania 37 card news, WWE has confirmed that Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will defend their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at the big event. It was announced during tonight’s RAW that Night One of WrestleMania will feature a four-team Tag Team Turmoil match with Lana and Naomi vs. Tamina Snuka and Natalya vs. Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott vs. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke. The winners will advance to Night Two to challenge Jax and Baszler for the titles.

WWE teased during last week’s SmackDown that Carmella and Billie Kay may also get involved in the #1 contender’s match. Kay appeared on tonight’s RAW in a backstage segment with the other tag teams, and noted that Carmella was reviewing her resume. It looks like the Tag Team Turmoil match could end up featuring 5 teams.
