It’s the beginning of 2018 and now the waiting begins. Sunday 8 April in New Orleans. The biggest show in sports entertainment. Wrestlemania 34. The rumors have already begun, the lead up to matches are weaving their way through Raw and Smackdown.
Here are some of the matches being touted for Wrestlemania 34.
The Undertaker v John Cena
This is now being suggested by the WWE Universe as a popular match. Despite The Undertaker allegedly retiring at the last Wrestlemania after being defeated by Roman Reigns, he has recently been seen backstage at Smackdown and is appearing on Raw 25, as is John Cena. I could have cried when he left his hat and gloves in the ring at Wrestlemania 33. Personally, I think The Undertaker is past his best and had this match been 5 years ago then yes it could have been fantastic. Now, however, The Undertaker is 52, and I think I would rather see him enter the WWE Hall of Fame than possibly seriously injuring himself. It’s actually hard to believe that this pair have never met before.
John Cena is another wrestler who sadly now is past his prime. He is making a lot of big movies and is a bit of a part-timer. Whether he does wrestle The Undertaker partly depends on what happens when he enters the Royal Rumble. The chances are he won’t win, but you can never quite tell with the WWE.
Then I have to consider who I would want to win. Much as I love The Undertaker, I also really like John Cena. I have my John Cena cap…..but I also have my Undertaker t-shirt! I guess I’d like The Undertaker to finish his career on a high and win before officially announcing his retirement and then entering the Hall of Fame the following year.
Brock Lesnar v Roman Reigns
This rumor has nearly been going around since the last Wrestlemania finished. They met at Wrestlemania 31, and it was a great match with Seth Rollins turning it into a triple threat match by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase and claiming the win. Now it appears that WWE are working towards a rematch between the two. Rumour has it that Vince really wants Reigns to be the face of the company. Both men have defeated The Undertaker at Wrestlemania and now is the time for them to fight it out to become the true “King of the Yard.” Reigns beating Lesnar would be a real statement and with Lesnar really only appearing in the lead up to big PPV events at least we would see the WWE Universal Champion more often than we do now.
The Four Horsewomen of MMA v The Four Horsewomen of NXT
Bit of a long shot this one, but it really would be an awesome match. The Four Horsewomen of MMA are Ronda Rousey, Marina Shafir, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler. Baszler is already in the WWE and Rousey has been spotted several times at WWE events and her career at UFC seems hit and miss. The Four Horsewomen of NXT are Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bayley. The quartets had a face off during the Mae Young Classic which is why this match has been suggested for Wrestlemania. Both groups have taken their name from The Four Horsemen of wrestling led by Ric Flair – father of Charlotte. Rousey has been seen training at WWE’s Performance Center so it looks like she could be making an appearance at WWE soon. I must admit I don’t know Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke but Shafir has links to WWE – her husband to be is Roderick Strong who is in NXT.
Triple H v ???
Let’s face it, he is going to have a match whether we like it or not! I suppose being the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative for WWE has its advantages. It probably helps if you’re married to the bosses daughter as well. Some rumors are flying around that he will have a match against Kurt Angle. It is possible that Jason Jordan would be involved in this too, possible turning against his “father” as well as Seth Rollins. I don’t really enjoy watching Triple H at Wrestlemania. His entrances are just too much for me, and it always seems he is gloating over his position in the company. I’m not saying he isn’t a great wrestler, it’s just a personal thing!
He will be involved in Wrestlemania somewhere we can be sure of that! You just know that this is the one year he won’t be!!!!
These matches are not guaranteed in any way, shape, or form.
