  • Huge announcement on Raw: WrestleMania to feature historic 6-man tag ladder match for Tag Team Championship.
  • Champions Finn Balor and Damian Priest to defend titles against 5 teams, determined via qualifying matches.
  • Fans excited for chaotic match with possible match of the year contender, great opportunity for many Superstars.

The two general managers for WWE’s flagship shows got together on Monday’s edition of Raw to make a huge announcement. About an hour into the show, Adam Pearce and Nick Aldis told the WWE Universe that this year’s WrestleMania would include a six-man tag team championship ladder match.

The only known members of the match are the champions, Finn Balor and Damian Priest. They’ll be forced to defend their titles against five other teams. As for who those other teams will be, that will be determined in a series of qualifying matches over the next few episodes of Raw and SmackDown and will include tag teams from both the red and blue brands. Aldis said the idea was to allow the extremely deep tag team roster and WWE showed clips of several teams, including The Street Profits, Alpha Academy, DIY, R-Truth and The Miz, New Day, The LWO, Pretty Deadly, and others.

As expected, Priest and Balor were not at all happy about the announcement. Having to defend against five other teams and possibly lose their titles without being pinned, they are at a huge disadvantage. The match should be chaotic and wild, with Pearce calling it fitting for the biggest WrestleMania of all time.


John Cena Drops Major Hint About WrestleMania 40 Involvement

John Cena was on the Tonight Show and dropped a fairly significant hint that he’d be part of this year’s WrestleMania.

Fan reaction on the social media post sharing the announcement was quick to peg this as a possible match of the year candidate. Having a ladder match back at WrestleMania is not only a fun idea but that many people in the ring and using ladders is going to make for numerous memorable moments.

Could This Live Up To TLC?

The last time WWE did a similar type of match was the TLC Match between The Dudleys, Edge and Christian, and The Hardy’s. Will teams try and live up to the bar those three duos set in a match that will go down in WrestleMania history?

This is another great way to get a good chunk of the roster on the WrestleMania card, which is something WWE has historically liked to do. With six teams in the match, that means 12 WWE Superstars battling in one match on the grandest stage of them all. For many of these teams, wrestling at WrestleMania will be a first.
