There is only one episode of WWE Raw remaining before WrestleMania 35 takes over the New York and New Jersey area at MetLife Stadium, and this week’s episode of Raw continued the road to the big PPV taking place on April 7th.
During this week’s show, Triple H revealed that Batista has made yet another demand before he will agree to face The Game at WrestleMania. The match featuring the former Evolution partners is already a No Holds Barred contest, and on Raw Triple H announced Batista wants The Game to put his career on the line in the match.
The Game agreed, meaning should he lose to Batista at WrestleMania 35, Triple H’s in-ring career in WWE will be over.
‘SNL’ Stars To Wrestle
It was previously announced that Saturday Night Live stars and Weekend Update hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che will be appearing at WrestleMania as guest correspondents, but this week on Raw it was announced they will have a much bigger role on the show.
After a segment aired on Raw featuring Colin Jost taking shots at Braun Strowman, The Monster Among Men demanded that Jost and Che enter the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal match, and Alexa Bliss made it official. Therefore, at WrestleMania, both Che and Jost will be competing in their first WWE match as they are now official battle royal participants.
