With the Elimination Chamber event over, here is what the projected card for WrestleMania 38 looks like.
The Elimination Chamber event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia has now concluded. The next show on he calendar just so happens to be the biggest wrestling event of the year — WrestleMania 38.
There was one main title change on the entire Elimination Chamber card, and it occurred in the main event. Brock Lesnar defeated Bobby Lashley, Austin Theory, Seth Rollins, Riddle and A.J. Styles to win the WWE Championship. That makes his impending WrestleMania match with Roman Reigns that much more interesting. Here is how the match card looks for the biggest show of the year.

WWE WrestleMania 38 match card: Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, Champion vs. Champion confirmed
Lesnar vs. Reigns was already confirmed for WrestleMania after the former won the Men’s Royal Rumble match last month. He did not wait long to challenge his adversary, but also expressed his desire to walk in as WWE Champion. Sure enough, Lesnar was added to the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match by Adam Pearce. After Elimination Chamber, Lesnar’s wish became a reality.
WWE is advertising Reigns vs. Lesnar as Champion vs. Champion, Winner Take All.
Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair was already confirmed to be a match at the big show, as Rousey challenged for the SmackDown Women’s Championship by way of winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match. At Elimination Chamber, Rousey (with one arm tied behind her back) and Naomi defeated Flair and Sonya Deville after getting Deville to tap out to an armbar.
The Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania is set as well. Becky Lynch retained her title by defeating WWE Hall of Famer Lita. Earlier in the night, Bianca Belair defeated Alexa Bliss, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. inside the Elimination Chamber to become the No. 1 contender.
The Miz’s feud with Rey and Dominik Mysterio is far from over. After Rey defeated Miz at Elimination Chamber, the latter said in an interview later on that he is not done with the Mysterio’s and hinted that he is bringing in a tag team partner to help him out.
According to PWInsider.com, a pitch has been made for social media star and celebrity boxer Logan Paul to be Miz’s partner. Paul appeared at WrestleMania last year, where he took a stunner from Kevin Owens.
Sami Zayn won the Intercontinental Championship on the Feb. 18 edition of SmackDown by defeating Shinsuke Nakamura. Even after the Royal Rumble, Zayn still continued his feud with “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville. A match between the two will happen at AT&T Stadium.
Those are the projected matches for the two-night WrestleMania, listed above. There will no doubt be more matches added down the line in the leadup to the weekend of Apr. 2-3, and we will continue to keep you updated once more bouts are confirmed.
