WrestleMania XL is almost upon us! Continue to join The Illuminerdi as we discuss what the ramifications of Night One can mean for Night Two!

WrestleMania XL has already ensured a truly epic card for Night One with most of the matches adding further fuel to the fire that will ignite on Night Two! Today, we’re going to be discussing the first three matches on the Night Two card to ensure you’re informed on what’s coming this Sunday!

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin'” Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre

Kicking off Night Two we got one of the most heated rivalries in WrestleMania history as the Visionary Seth “Freakin'” Rollins faces off against the Scottish Psychopath Drew McIntyre…with exclusive commentary by the Voice of the Voiceless CM Punk! With McIntyre delivering excellent heel work (and claiming to be the reason why Punk was injured at this year’s Royal Rumble) whilst Seth is pulled in two directions with Cody and The Bloodline, the match is sure to be one for the ages.

Drew’s heel work has been brutal and hilarious, with memes and fourth wall breaks aplenty giving Drew even more heat and attention than he’s had in years. Now, with the opportunity to not only win a championship in front of a live crowd but to put Rollins in his place at the bottom of the food chain, McIntyre is one Sunday away from being the face of Monday Night RAW. However, in the shadows and on the mic is the Second City Saint of CM Punk, biding his time until he can take on Drew and shut his mouth once and for all.

WWE Women’s Champion Iyo Sky vs. Bayley

The fans have been behind Bayley for a very long time, no matter how evil she’s been. As a member of the Four Horsewomen who helped bring the Women’s Division the much sought-after respect it rightfully deserved, the fans have been clamoring to see Bayley win a championship worthy of the work she’s put in. However, standing in her way is Iyo Sky, the genius of the skies, and the embodiment of Bayley’s sins.

Having formed Damage CTRL years ago with Sky, Bayley is solely responsible for Iyo Sky’s ascendency to the WWE Women’s Champion. However, with the power gone to her head, Iyo and the rest of Damage CTRL turned on Bayley following her momentous win at the Royal Rumble this year, leading to Bayley needing to defeat her protégé and claim her well-earned title once and for all.

L.A. Knight vs. A.J. Styles

The Attitude Era has found its footing almost a quarter of a century since its heyday in the work of L.A. Knight (yeah!). With catchphrases and lines reminiscent of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin, the fans have flocked to back the wrestler. However, this newfound popularity hasn’t sat well with many, case in point is the Phenomenal A.J. Styles who, after seeing Knight’s popularity gain him a spot in a match Styles was supposed to compete in at Fastlane last year and by being left out of the Elimination Chamber after a loss to Randy Orton whilst Knight made it to the PLE, didn’t take to kindly to the Megastar.

Following several attacks and brutal feuds that have left Styles’ house in ruins (once again…man, Styles can’t catch a break can he?), Knight and Styles agreed to a singles bout at the Showcase of the Immortals, thus allowing Knight to have yet another opportunity to further his Megastar status at WrestleMania XL.

WrestleMania XL Night Two Concludes…

That was just the beginning of Night Two. The night has three more explosive matches planned: Logan Paul defends his U.S. Title against Randy Orton and Kevin Owens, The Pride (Bobby Lashley and the Street Profits) seek revenge in a 3-on-3 bout against the Final Testament (Karrion Kross with the Authors of Pain, Scarlett, and Paul Ellering), and concluding with the monumental main event with the long-awaited rematch between “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes and the WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns, with The Bloodline’s fates hanging in the balance with Night One’s Main Event.
