The countdown to WrestleMania 39 is nearing its conclusion, as anticipation for the WWE‘s greatest event of the year is almost at its pinnacle. Nine huge fights are already scheduled for the two-night show, and a few more will be added before April 1. As incumbents look to solidify their edifices, emerging stars hope to reach the summit, and legendary figures want to show they still “have it,” as they say in the business.
Some of these superstars need victory more than others as they stake their claims to yet another moment of greatness. These stars cannot afford to lose to produce new stars. Hence their opponents may finish the job.
Here are five superstars who cannot be seen winning at the headline event.
5. The Usos
For more than 600 days, The Usos have held the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. In the years after they defeated The Mysterios at Money In The Bank 2021, Jimmy and Jey have continuously improved. In May 2022, they defeated RK-Bro to win the RAW Tag Team Championships and establish themselves as the undisputed champions. Since then, the brothers’ work on The Bloodline has kept the WWE Universe on the edge of their seats.
The Usos must lose at WrestleMania 39 because of the Bloodline plot. Sami Zayn is overdue for a victory over his former stable because he tore enormous gaps in the alliance and lost to Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber. It’s almost clear that the former Honorary Uce will exact retribution by unseating The Usos in Hollywood alongside his real-life closest friend, even though the match hasn’t been made official yet.
