Rumors and speculation are always rampant around WrestleMania. But this year especially, the Road to WrestleMania 35 has been fraught with twists and turns. Plans seem to change on a weekly, sometimes daily basis.
Some of this is beyond WWE's control. Roman Reigns was diagnosed with leukemia, forcing him to relinquish the WWE Universal Championship. WWE couldn't have possibly predicted that Becky Lynch and Kofi Kingston would gain the fan support they did. Now both are booked in world title matches.
But other swerves seem beyond narrative logic. Asuka lost the Smackdown Women's Championship in what was reportedly a last-minute decision. And other superstars, with mere days to spare before the biggest WWE event of the year takes place Sunday at 7 p.m. ET, still don't have matches confirmed. The WWE is walking a fine line between unpredictability and recklessness.
Here are the eight craziest rumors we've heard on the Road to WrestleMania 35. Take these all with a grain of salt; Vince McMahon is infamous for changing plans at the 11th hour.
