This week's tapings of SmackDown saw two further title matches added to WrestleMania 32. If you want to find out later this week when the show airs what these matches are, do not read on in this article.

According to Wrestling Inc, the two championship matches added to The Showcase of The Immortals are the WWE United States Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship. Kalisto will defend his United States title against Ryback, while The New Day will defend their Tag Team titles against The League of Nations.

Earlier this week, after defeating Kalisto's Lucha Dragons tag team partner Sin Cara in a one-on-one match on Monday Night Raw, Ryback challenged Kalisto for a match at WrestleMania for his United States Championship.

The Lucha Dragons tag team member responded to the challenge during an interview with Michael Cole on this week's episode of SmackDown and accepted the summons made by The Human Wrecking Ball.

The New Day were also challenged this week on Raw by The League of Nations for a Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania. Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and Big E accepted the challenge on SmackDown, before Kingston then had a match against League of Nations member King Barrett, which he won.

A brawl then ensued between the two teams after the match, with The League of Nations standing tall at the end.

On the face of it, both of these matches look like they will be entertaining, and they should have title changes as well. The clash between Ryback and Kalisto is likely to be a standard singles competition, while the Tag Team title match could be a 4-on-3 bout. 

The Big Guy's heel turn has had mixed reviews so far, but it can be pushed in the right direction with an entertaining feud with Kalisto for months to come if he picks up the United States Championship at WrestleMania 32 in the AT&T Stadium later this year.

For the Tag Team Championship picture, if The New Day are going to remain as faces rather than heels - they arguably work better as heels - then they need to overcome some sort of adversity for more of the crowd to get behind them.

They already have a strong backing thanks to their charisma, but losing the titles at WrestleMania and regaining them at some point in the future will provide them with even more backing by the WWE Universe. 

These two title matches join several other matches on the WrestleMania card. These include the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred match, and a Hell in a Cell clash between Shane McMahon and The Undertaker.

There is also the triple threat bout for the Divas Championship between Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, and of course, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Triple H and Roman Reigns.
