Hideo Itami (c) vs. Akira Tozawa
Kickoff Show: Cruiserweight Championship Match
Any championship match, especially those at WrestleMania, should always be about the two best performers going toe to toe in the middle of the ring for the title. These men are two of the best the cruiserweight division has to offer, and I have no doubt that they would put on one hell of a show.
Winner: Hideo Itami
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Kickoff Show Match
I may be in the minority, but I absolutely love the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. I think it’s a great way to get everyone on the show, and an even better way to introduce new stars to the audience. As far as new stars are concerned, there isn’t anyone on the WWE roster that I’m higher on than Pete Dunne.
Winner: Pete Dunne
Samoa Joe (c) vs. Finn Bálor vs. Cesaro vs. Matt Hardy vs. The Miz vs. Bray Wyatt
Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match
Kicking off the main card of WrestleMania with a ladder match has become a bit of a tradition, and rightfully so. The opening action is an extremely important component of the show and a ladder match is guaranteed to get the crowd on board right out of the gate.
A 6-man ladder match with the Intercontinental Championship on the line is the perfect way to start the evening’s festivities.
Winner: Finn Bálor
The Usos (c) vs. The Authors of Pain
SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match
The Usos have been one of the best acts in WWE in 2017, and The Authors of Pain have done nothing but improve since their arrival in NXT. It makes sense that these teams will eventually cross paths, and a championship bout at WrestleMania seems like the ideal battlefield.
Winner: The Authors of Pain
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
New Orleans Street Fight
I truly believe that a heel Dean Ambrose could set the wrestling world on fire in 2018, and a street fight with Seth Rollins is exactly what The Lunatic Fringe needs to get the ball rolling.
Ambrose is currently injured and may end up missing WrestleMania, but if he can return in time to build this match for a few weeks, it’s a no-brainer.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Becky Lynch
SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Submission Match
A submission match between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Live Women’s Championship has the chance to steal the show, as these two submission specialists are some of the best performers in the entire company.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Braun Strowman has been among the top guys in WWE for quite some time now and deserves to have a WrestleMania moment next year. John Cena, the biggest name in the business, is the perfect foe for The Monster Among Men.
A win over The Face of WWE cements Strowman as a legitimate threat moving forward, and I believe 2018 will be the year he captures a world title for the first time.
Winner: Braun Strowman
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
Hell in a Cell Match
As great as Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are as a team, they’re even better as hated rivals.
The story between these two goes back for over a decade outside of WWE, and I feel like ending it all with a match at WrestleMania is a fitting conclusion to their epic conflict.
I’d turn Sami Zayn face, and have him close out this classic story with a win over Owens, inside of Hell in a Cell, which is a tip of the cap to the moment these two united on WWE soil for the first time.
Winner: Sami Zayn
I’d start this one off by revealing that Triple H was the mastermind behind the Jason Jordan/illegitimate son angle, falsifying the entire thing in an attempt to sabotage Angle’s career and remove him from WWE for good. Angle attempts to get revenge on Jordan, who was in on the whole thing, at Elimination Chamber first, but loses after The Game interferes.
That leads to this matchup, the ultimate throwback to WWE’s legendary Attitude Era, which will help fill 75,000 seats at the Superdome, as well as grow the WWE Network subscriber count.
Winner: Kurt Angle
Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
Universal Championship Match
I may be in the minority, but I find the idea of this WrestleMania rematch very exciting. Their first matchup at WrestleMania 31 was excellent long before Seth Rollins’ legendary cash-in, and Roman Reigns is a far better performer now than he was then.
I truly believe, like Goldberg/Lesnar from last year, that this has the potential to be one of the better matches on this show, despite fans complaining about it online prior to the show. Hopefully, those same fans will give it a chance because, if they do, it could be a classic.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Raw Women’s Championship Streak vs. Title Match
I have a feeling that WWE is going to pull the trigger on this matchup way before April 8th, which is unfortunate, to say the least.
I can’t think of a better story than Asuka’s undefeated streak versus Paige’s Raw Women’s Championship, on The Grandest Stage of Them All, to build a match of this caliber. Two mega-stars facing off with such high stakes is hands down the biggest and best thing they can do for the Raw women’s division at ‘Mania.
AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
WWE Championship Match
The chances of WWE going with AJ Styles/Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34 are high, but the chances that it closes out the show are slim to none.
I think that’s ridiculous, for a multitude of reasons. First of all, 2017 was AJ Styles’ year and he deserves the main event spot on the biggest show WWE has to offer. Second, fans can only see so many “Roman Reigns is the guy now” closing segments at ‘Mania before it becomes too much to bear, and we’re reaching that point.
This is an awesome way to close what should be a fantastic night. Fans who have seen their first encounter know what Styles and Nakamura are capable of in the ring together; this match as the main event could make this show one of the best WrestleManias of all time.
Winner: AJ Styles
