205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick tweeted earlier today that there will be a major WrestleMania announcement taking place on tonight’s show.

You may remember a couple of weeks back that Maverick and WWE teased that a few new names would be turning up on the purple brand, and since then, the only one has been Humberto Carrillo formerly of NXT.
With the announcement coming so soon before WrestleMania, speculation is that a tournament will be held to determine Buddy Murphy’s challenger for the Cruiserweight Championship at ‘Mania, during which we could see a few new names debut, and potentially win. I’d been saying for months that I’d love to see Ricochet in such a role, but after his Raw debut last night, that looks unlikely. Unlikely, but not impossible.
There is also the possibility that the announcement could be something entirely different. Let us know what you think it could be in the comments below.
