WWE WrestleMania 34 is going down this Sunday, April 8th, live on the WWE Network. We’ve got the announced match card, show predictions, and our overall thoughts for you to check out below. Let us know what you think is going to happen on Sunday by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Kickoff Show: WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal
We believe that the final two participants will be Bayley and Sasha Banks, as the entire match is centered around the feud between the two. With that in mind, Bayley getting the win is a good way to get the fans excited early on in the evening.
Kickoff Show: Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
This match is almost impossible to predict due to the fact that not all of the participants have been announced yet. We’re actually going to go with someone who isn’t announced for the match, but is rumored to be returning to the ring soon, and that someone is Samoa Joe.
Winner: Samoa Joe
Kickoff Show: Cedric Alexander vs. Mustafa Ali
Cruiserweight Championship Match
This is a potential “match of the night” contender and one of the bouts that we are most excited to see. Either one of these two would make a great Cruiserweight Champion, but we’re going to go with Mustafa Ali, simply due to his top-notch promo work as of late.
Winner: Mustafa Ali
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Nia Jax
Raw Women’s Championship Match
Anything outside of a dominant Nia Jax win would make the story WWE has been telling over the past few weeks that much more offensive. This feels a lot like the Triple H//Booker T feud from 2003, but we’re hoping it doesn’t end in similar fashion.
Winner: Nia Jax
The Bar (c) vs. Braun Strowman and ???
Raw Tag Team Championship Match
As far as Braun Strowman’s mystery partner is concerned, Elias seems like a likely candidate. A Braun and Elias team could help rejuvenate the Raw tag scene while giving both men something of importance to do. Braun has yet to capture championship gold in his WWE career and this seems like the perfect opportunity to change that.
Winner: Braun Strowman and Elias
Randy Orton (c) vs. Rusev vs. Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal
Fatal-4 Way United States Championship Match
The addition of Rusev made this match must-see. Anything outside of a Rusev victory, on Rusev Day no less, would be a massive letdown.
The Miz (c) vs. Finn Bálor vs. Seth Rollins
Triple Threat Intercontinental Championship Match
WWE doesn’t have an off-season, which means the show never ends. If this was a season finale, Seth Rollins getting the victory would be the right call. It’s not, however, and we really want to see Daniel Bryan and The Miz duke it out for the Intercontinental Championship, so we’re going to pick The Miz to retain.
Winner: The Miz
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Asuka
SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match
No One… Is Ready… For Asuka.
In all seriousness, this match is going to be incredible. If these two get enough time, they have a chance to steal the show. Asuka’s streak is one of the biggest and best things going in WWE right now, and it’s not the right time for it to come to an end.
The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Bludgeon Brothers
Triple Threat SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match
The Usos have finally made the main card of WrestleMania! Lately, their work has been some of the best stuff in all of pro wrestling, not just WWE. Watching Jimmy and Jey retain their SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship is a feel-good moment, which is what the show is all about.
Winner: The Usos
John Cena vs. The Undertaker
This match isn’t official, but it’s more than likely going to happen. With that in mind, we don’t have any predictions about how WWE is going to pull this off, which version of The Undertaker is going to appear, or even who is going to win the match. All we can say is that it’s going to be a really fun moment that fans will talk about for years to come.
Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey vs. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H
Mixed Tag Team Match
Ronda Rousey’s debut is one of the major selling points of this year’s WrestleMania, which puts a lot of pressure on Ronda, who is having her first pro wrestling match. Triple H and Kurt Angle will more than likely be doing the majority of the wrestling in the ring, but the end of the match will be Ronda tapping out Stephanie to get the win for her team.
Winner: Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey
Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
Daniel Bryan’s return to the ring, happening in the same building in which he won the WWE Championship four years earlier, is going to be the highlight of the night for a lot of fans. Bryan is a major star in the wrestling world, and fans want to see him win his first match back. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn can head back to Raw post-Mania, and Daniel Bryan can join them so he can feud with The Miz (fingers crossed).
Winner: Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns
Universal Championship Match
If this match is anything like their previous encounter from WrestleMania 31, then us fans are in for a real treat. These two beasts are likely going to beat the holy hell out of each other for 15 minutes or so, but when it’s all said and done, Roman Reigns will be your new Universal Champion.
Bonus Prediction: Roman will get the victory via the assistance of Vince McMahon, turning Roman heel in the process.
Winner: Roman Reigns
AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
WWE Championship Match
Odds are this will be the best wrestling match of the show, if not the entire year. These two had an encounter a few years ago that sent shockwaves through the wrestling world, and with the added pressure that is WrestleMania, we expect even bigger and better things this time around. This match probably won’t go on last, which is a shame, but it’s no doubt going to be an instant classic, regardless of when it happens.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
