I don’t know if this is the least excited I have ever been for a WrestleMania in my life. Last year, I was at WrestleMania 33 and I had the time of my life watching it in person and enjoying it. This year, I just feel like WrestleMania 34 which takes place from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans could be one of the more disappointing ones in history. The event just boasters a very lackluster lineup of matches that no one wants to see and matches that we have seen before. For example, we already saw Roman Reigns take on Brock Lesnar for a title at WrestleMania 31 and the best decision they made that night was having Seth Rollins cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase. Does anyone really care about the Ronda Rousey/Kurt Angle vs Stephanie McMahon/Triple H match? The only smart thing they did was not have her face any of the Women’s roster because hopefully her in ring skills are better than her mic skills cause that needs a lot of work. There are a lot of matches on the card that look interesting, but a lot are just not that exciting. One thing is for sure, I only want the American Bad Ass version of The Undertaker showing up tonight to confront John Cena.
The only interesting matches that are on the card is obviously the return of Daniel Bryan to ring action when he teams with Shane McMahon to take on Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. It has been a long time since we’ve seen Daniel fight anyone and i am sure the crowd will be pumped up for that one. The match that sees The Miz defend his Intercontinental Championship against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor should be a match of the night contender right along the dream match. The dream match of course is the rematch between Shinsuke Nakamura and WWE Champion AJ Styles. The last time these two met, it was Wrestle Kingdom 10 in Japan and that match was out of this world. Now, we get to see it in a WWE ring and it should tear the roof off the Superdome. While I am not really looking forward to it, I am interested to see if the WWE does what we expect them to do when it comes to Charlotte vs Asuka. We expect the WWE to allow Asuka to continue her undefeated streak especially after the fact that she won the Mixed Match Challenge with The Miz.Are they going to allow Charlotte to be the one that ends the streak? Who knows, but I seriously doubt it.
Does anyone really still care that the Andre The Giant battle royal is still happening? I don’t think so and I think they ruined it last year giving Mojo Rawley the win, but it also proved that winning that means nothing in the business as far as your future cause Jinder Mahal was WWE Champion. The WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal took a huge hit when it was forced to change it’s name from The Fabulous Moolah Memorial Tournament to that. I don’t disagree with the name change, but that was bad Mojo for the battle royal itself. You know the Triple threat match over on Smackdown Live looks awfully familair to me, but oh yea it’s the same match we have seen time and time again, but this time with The Bludgeon Brothers added into the mix. The one question that I have for this match is are they keeping the titles with The Usos or are they going to push The Bludgeon Brothers? I’m not completely sure in what direction the WWE is going to go in with Nia Jax taking on Alexa Bliss only because I’m wondering if they are going to give Nia her shot at being a champion or not?
I am a little excited to see Mustafa Ali take on Cedric Alexander for the vacant Cruiserweight Championship because Cedric has definitely earned his shot at being champion in my opinion. You know what I want to see tonight as well is Rusev celebrate Rusev Day at WrestleMania walking out US Champion again! I am definitely curious who Braun Strowman chose as his tag team partner to take on Raw WWE Tag Champs Sheamus and Cesaro because there are a lot of names being thrown around. If you ask me, there is a part of me that wants to see Bray with him, but Braun doesn’t need Bray because he has his own star power. I am a huge fan of Bray Wyatt, but the WWE sealed his fate. Anyways, while I may have said that I am not excited for a lot of the matches on the card, I hope the WWE does pull this off and they have an amazing show. I love WrestleMania and always have since the first one I watched which was WrestleMania III. Enjoy the show and here are my predictions for tonight.
Cedric over Mustafa
Becky Lynch wins women’s battle royal
Tye Dillinger wins Andre The Giant Battle royal
Roman over Brock
Asuka over Charlotte
Alexa over Nia
Seth will win the IC Belt
Braun and partner win Tag team titles
The USOS retain
Booby Roode regains his US title
Shinsuke over AJ Styles
Kurt and Ronda over Triple H and Stephanie
Sami and Kevin over Daniel and Shane
