While just about every single one of this spring's major events have been cancelled, the WWE was not going to let anything stop their biggest show of the year.

WrestleMania 36 will be going down as planned on April 4th and 5th, taking place with no audience. The huge 16-bout card features nine championship matches.

To make things really interesting, FanDuel has rolled out some free-to-play fantasy contests. If you're looking for some help setting your lineup, here are the top fantasy picks for WrestleMania 36.

Bray Wyatt
Nobody knows exactly what to expect for the "Firefly Fun House" match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena, but we can certainly expect it to be an unusual one. We can expect this to be a relatively brutal match, and with FanDuel awarding points for the use of foreign objects, that should translate to big fantasy scoring. John Cena has never shied away from helping push future stars over the top, and we could easily see him on the receiving end of a serious beating in this one.

Daniel Bryan and Sami Zayn
Looking again at FanDuel's scoring system, high-paced matches are prime targets, with submission attempts, pin attempts, kickouts and reversals all scoring points. Daniel Bryan vs. Sami Zayn should be exactly the kind of high-paced, technical matchup that features huge chains of reversals and quick pinfall attempts, with plenty of upside with top turnbuckle moves as well. These two have faced off on the independent circuit, as Bryan Danielson and El Generico, and those matches brought the kind of pace that we're looking for. Seeing as a victory doesn't actually add any fantasy points to a wrestler's total, stacking this match offers a ton of value without sacrificing upside.

Rhea Ripley
The NXT Women's champion, Rhea Ripley should be involved in a fast-paced match as well, facing off with Charlotte Flair. NXT matches tend to bring plenty of technical elements, and this should be a nice competitive bout that features plenty of scoring on both sides.
