Former WWE champions Kofi Kingston & Sheamus get a WrestleMania match

Seth Rollins wasn’t the only former champ who got some good news yesterday.

There was uncertainty about how or if it would happen, some of which was caused by Big E suffering a broken neck on SmackDown earlier this month. But former WWE champions Kofi Kingston and Sheamus now have a place on the WrestleMania 38 card.

WWE announced yesterday that Kingston and the recently returned Xavier Woods will face Sheamus and Ridge Holland (along with the nefarious Butch, natch) on WrestleMania Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Here’s an updated look at everything that’s been announced for this weekend...

WrestleMania Saturday (April 2)

- Stone Cold Steve Austin confronts Kevin Owens on The KO Show

- Seth Rollins vs. an opponent of Vince McMahon’s choosing

- Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s championship

- The Usos (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs for the SmackDown Tag Team championship

- Drew McIntyre vs. Happy Corbin

In addition the main cards, WWE also has two hour Kickoff shows planned for each night. Something like the New Day vs. Peaky Blinders tag match could end up on the pre-show, along with perhaps United States and Intercontinental title defenses for Finn Bálor and Ricochet?

We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, give us your latest thoughts on these line-ups for WrestleMania 38.
