Corey Graves Predicts WWE Will Have A New Megastar By The End Of WrestleMania 37 Weekend

"I'm going to say by the end of WrestleMania weekend, WWE has a new megastar that we didn't realise we were sitting on"

This weekend at WrestleMania 37, the WWE main roster will perform in front of fans for the first time in over a year. Capacity inside Raymond James Stadium for the two-night event has been set at 25,000 and fans in attendance will witness many matches, including Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship and Edge vs. Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan for the Universal Title. 

Corey Graves and Vic Joseph previewed The Showcase Of The Immortals on After The Bell and the SmackDown commentator predicted WWE will have a new megastar they didn't realise they had on the roster by the end of WrestleMania 37 weekend. 

"The overarching theme, and I dare call it a curiosity from my perspective, is to how the WWE Universe is going to react to Superstars. I think, particularly at the beginning of night one, everybody is just going to be so enamoured with the fact, 'Wow, we're here. WrestleMania in person,' the electricity is gonna be off the charts," Graves stated.

"But let's be honest, WWE fans, sports entertainment fans, pro wrestling fans are a bit of a fickle bunch. They like to have their input and they like to be vocal. I'm curious – I'm gonna make this prediction. I'm going to say by the end of WrestleMania weekend, WWE has a new megastar that we didn't realise we were sitting on," he continued. 

"And I don't know who that is. I have a feeling, and this may sound kind of contrarian, Bobby Lashley. I saw the backlash on social media after The Hurt Business was broken up on Raw a few weeks ago. I hated it as a fan, as a fan of those guys, as a friend of all those guys. I hated seeing that kind of departure. But I think Bobby Lashley right now, and I might be dead wrong, but I think Bobby is resonating with fans in a different way. It's a throwback, but it's fresh… I think Bobby might get one of the best ovations of anybody all weekend. 

"But if it's not Lashley, if maybe it's somebody a little more obscure, someone is going to leave Raymond James Stadium this weekend with a badge of honour from the WWE crowd that have not been able to vocalise how they feel, or what they love, or how strongly they feel positively or negatively about somebody on the card."
