With WrestleMania 37 a shade over two weeks away, the cards are finally starting to take shape for both nights of the event.

This week on SmackDown, three exciting singles matches were added to the event that will no doubt get the thumbs up from fans.

The first added is a singles match between Seth Rollins and Cesaro. Following a Fastlane rematch between Rollins and Shinsuke Nakamura, the man with the most ‘Drip’ on SmackDown viciously beat down Nakamura after vanquishing him for the second time in a week. Cesaro soon made the save which prompted Rollins to make the challenge for a WrestleMania match in a backstage segment while promising Cesaro would never swing him again.

Within seconds, Cesaro confirmed his acceptance of the match by attacking Rollins…And hitting him with a swing.

Remarkably, despite being with WWE for a decade, this will be Cesaro’s first singles match at WrestleMania. His biggest moment at the event previously was winning the first Andre The Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30. The match will take place on WrestleMania’s first night.

Secondly, it was confirmed that long time friends and rivals Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will meet on night two of the event. Whilst announcing that YouTube personality Logan Paul will appear on SmackDown next week for the ‘Red Carpet Premiere’ of Zayn’s documentary, it was also announced that the pair will face off at the Raymond James Stadium in another bout that will surely be met with huge approval by fans.
