An update has been provided on two matches planned for WrestleMania 38 that have yet to be announced.
Per Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has plans for a Finn Balor vs Damian Priest US Championship match.
Balor defeated Priest for the US Title on the February 28 edition of WWE Raw. On the March 14 show, Priest defeated Balor in non-title action, appearing to set up another championship bout.
The report also confirmed that a Omos vs Bobby Lashley bout is pencilled in for the April 2-3 event. Lashley suffered a shoulder injury at Royal Rumble, and was written off TV at Elimination Chamber last month.
Discussing the scheduled matches, Meltzer noted:
Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest for the U.S. title was scheduled, and Priest winning a non-title match on Raw on 3/14 would indicate that. But it’s not been made official.
The other match listed is Omos vs. Bobby Lashley. But there is a caveat. Obviously Lashley did not undergo major shoulder surgery, as was feared from his injury suffered in the match with Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, or he wouldn’t be ready. However, the injury was serious enough that he hasn’t wrestled since and is not cleared at this point. We were told this is the mach provided Lashley is cleared. If he’s not, then they’d have to change plans.
