– A new report has the current backstage plans for women’s matches at WrestleMania, including Ronda Rousey’s role. Sports Illustrated reports that the current women’s championship matches are currently pencilled in for the show:

* Raw Women’s Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs Nia Jax
* Smackdown Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs Asuka

The report also notes that Rousey is scheduled for a mixed tag team match against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. WWE is said to be considering The Rock, Kurt Angle, Shane McMahon, and Seth Rollins as her possible tag team partner. The biggest challenge for the Rock are concerns about a WrestleMania appearance causing his films insurance problems. Shane McMahon, meanwhile is still involved in his angle with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Seth Rollins does not currently have a set opponent for this year’s WrestleMania card, and he has longstanding storyline issues with Triple H.
