Bengaluru, April 6: The Miz and John Morrison vs. Damian Priest and Rapper Bad Bunny in a traditional tag team match, has been made official for Night One of WrestleMania 37. As per the earlier announcement, Miz vs. Bunny in a singles contest has already been slated for the Show of Shows.
Later, it was reported that Priest and Morrison had to be taken out of the equation due to minor injuries. It was also noted that the singles match could be changed to the originally-planned tag team match if Morrison and Priest are able to get medically cleared.
Going by the change to the card at the eleventh hour, it's guessed that Priest and Morrison have been cleared just before the go-home edition of RAW for WrestleMania 37.
Per the storyline, Miz and Morrison used spray red paint to vandalize Bunny’s $3.6 million Bugatti car that he and Priest drove to WWE ThunderDome on Raw. Miz and Morrison also ambushed Bunny as he was upset, backstage over the damage to his car.

This segment led to Bunny and Priest coming to the ring and issuing a challenge for the tag team match at WrestleMania 37. Miz and Morrison never came out face to face with them but rather interrupted on the big screen to accept the challenge and make the tag match, official.
WWE has also announced that Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will be defending their Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 37. The Night One of the show will feature a Fatal-4-Way Tag Team Turmoil Match to determine a number-one contender’s team.
The participants of the match will be Lana and Naomi vs. Tamina Snuka and Natalya vs. Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott vs. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke. The winners will proceed to Night Two to challenge Jax and Baszler for the titles.

Teasing from last week’s SmackDown also suggested that Carmella and Billie Kay may also form a team to get involved in the number-one contender’s match.
Kay was also in attendance on this week’s RAW in a backstage segment noting that Carmella was reviewing her resume. So this Tag Team Turmoil match could end up being a Fatal-5-Way, perhaps on SmackDown.
In additional news, Grammy-nominated Bebe Rexha will perform “America The Beautiful” to kick off Night One of WrestleMania 37 this Saturday night. Rexha stated the following during a press release about her participation at The Biggest Event of the Year:
“I’m excited to sing 'America the Beautiful’ at this year’s WrestleMania. Being part of WWE’s biggest event of the year is an honor and I look forward to performing for fans around the world.”
Rexha previously performed “Home” with Machine Gun Kelly and Sam Harris at WWE’s 2017 Tribute to The Troops event.
WWE NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver will also be kicked off on Wednesday night with Nita Strauss performing the National Anthem while WrestleMania 37 Night Two will feature Ash Costello performing her “Brutality” track for Rhea Ripley’s entrance as she challenges Asuka for WWE RAW Women’s Championship.
