The Masked Ace's Wrestlemania 34 Predictions

Glen Mclaughlin
April 8, 2018

The 34th edition of WrestleMania is nearly here, and WWE has put together what is arguably the most stacked card in the history of the event for this Sunday in New Orleans. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network.

To date, some of the most iconic moments in wrestling history have happened there: Hulk Hogan body-slamming Andre the Giant, Stone Cold Steve Austin refusing to tap out to Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels retiring Ric Flair, then getting retired by the Undertaker two years later. the list goes on and on.

The feud that has dominated Smackdown Live for months comes to an end at WrestleMania with Bryan making his surprising return after announcing his retirement in 2016.

WWE Universal Championship match: Brock Lesnar (champion) vs. I'd love to see WWE pull a swerve and have Paul Heyman double-cross Lesnar and help Reigns win, because a heel Reigns as champion with Heyman as his advocate would be big at the box office.

A kick-off show match that may be overlooked by most fans who don't watch 205 Live, but Alexander and Ali are frequently breathtaking in the ring, and fans should be prepared for high-flying, acrobatic bonanza. On a side note, I expect this match to go on last, as it should. Many people are looking forward to this match because they think that now that the two are in WWE, which is considered the be all end all of sports entertainment, they will earn that last quarter star giving them the flawless match. Now they're facing each other on an even grander stage. History has shown that these two matches don't matter all that much in the end.

Ahem, anyway. I've also got a feeling that AJ Styles will retain the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura, making this one of the rare few occurences of a Royal Rumble victor not triumphing against the title holder.

Let's guess who will be his tag team partners...

WWE Champion AJ Styles will also defend his title against Shinsuke Nakamura while UFC icon Ronda Rousey will make her debut for the company teaming with Kurt Angle to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn - If Owens and Zayn win, they will be rehired to SmackDown.

The annual Battle Royal is a great way to feature all of the talent that didn't make the cut for a singles or tag match later in the card, but the victor hasn't gone on to do much afterward, historically.

WWE has caught a lot of flak for relegating the conclusion of the cruiserweight championship tournament to the pre-show. Daniel Bryan is back! A real brotherhood. We're all about the power of positivity and that's something we want people to see how much fun we're having and that energy is infectious. Their match was rated four and three-quarter out of five stars by The Wrestling Observer Magazine's Dave Meltzer. If there was ever a time for him to come through, it's now.

Undertaker has had some classic matches at WrestleMania against the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Kane and CM Punk.

Without Bryan in the ring, I'd have given this match to Owens and Zayn.

The Miz has elevated the Intercontinental Championship to new heights and will be looking at WrestleMania to be his victory lap following a stellar 2017. Who will his partner be? Something has got to give, and I don't think it's the right time for Asuka to lose her streak.

The Match: Cesaro and Sheamus (c) vs. Braun Strowman and TBD for the Raw Tag Team Championship. The Undertaker or the Deadman retired that day in the ring and now only way Mark Calaway can return is as American Badass or any other new character he may choose (unlikely).
