Daily Update: Full WrestleMania 32 card, plus notes from SaturdayBy F4W Staff | @WONF4W | Mar 26, 2016 11:33 am
Final WWE WrestleMania Line-Up
WWE on Sunday has a show in Washington, DC, but the last TV taping before WrestleMania will be a combined Raw and Smackdown show on Monday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The show is expected to be a sellout. Here is the current WrestleMania 32 card. As always, this may not be the correct match order and changes may occur:
- Preshow: Andre the Giant Memorial Battel Royal: 20-man Battle Royal for the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy
- Preshow: The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) vs. The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) in a Tag Team match
- Kevin Owens (c) vs. Sami Zayn vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Zack Ryder vs. Sin Cara vs. The Miz vs. Stardust in a 7-man Ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
- The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) vs. The League of Nations (Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Rusev and King Barrett) in 4-on-3 Handicap match
- Charlotte (c) (with Ric Flair) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat match for the WWE Divas Championship
- Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) in a No Holds Barred Street Fight
- AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho
- Kalisto (c) vs. Ryback in a Singles match for the WWE United States Championship
- Triple H (c) vs. Roman Reigns in a Singles match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
- Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match; if Shane wins, he will get control of Raw and Undertaker will be barred from competing at WrestleMania again
We will have a complete preview of all these matches later in the week, as well as a Hall of Fame preview, so look for those in the next few days.

Hulk Hogan is awarded $115 million by jury over the Gawker sex tape lawsuit. Will he collect?
Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Well before the Hulk Hogan vs. Gawker Media trial began, it was not a secret that Gawker believed they would lose the case before a jury, but believed they would win it on appeal.
But in a trial that got worldwide attention, as much for the questions of what constitutes legitimate news versus invasion of privacy, as the fact Hogan was involved, Gawker never saw what was coming.
A St. Petersburg jury of six people awarded Hogan $140.1 million, even more than the $100 million he was asking for, with one juror making it clear the figure was because they wanted to send a message to the company.

- Remember former WWE & Hulk Hogan buddy Zack Gowen? He’s going to be on American Ninja Warrior.
- WWE is bringing “bucks & bravado” to Dallas for WrestleMania week. (Not the Young Bucks, but the money kind.)

- If you missed the ESPN E:60 feature on NXT, it’s airing early Sunday morning at 1:30 AM and 3:00 AM on ESPNews.
