WWE WrestleMania 34 2018 Pay-Per-View Online Results Predictions Spoilers Review
WWE WrestleMania 2018 Spoilers

WWE WrestleMania 34 Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar Universal Title

Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns

I've hated this idea since the moment it seemed possible around the 2017 Royal Rumble, but it's clearly what we're getting. It didn't work the first time, so why in the hell does WWE think it's going to work when it's a rematch and LESS people like Reigns now?

I hope it not only blows up in WWE's face, but I hope it does so in spectacular fashion to make a statement where they think twice about doing anything similar to this again.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns takes the title.

WWE WrestleMania 34 AJ Styles WWE Championship Shinsuke Nakamura

WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

This is now official, save for any kind of injury taking place to prevent it, or some twist/swerve with another person getting involved, but I doubt either of those are going to happen. With AJ Styles as champion, there's no better challenger on the SmackDown brand than Shinsuke Nakamura. This match will be a stark contrast to everything Reigns vs. Lesnar represents in pretty much every fashion. This will be "the smark match" while that will be "what Vince wants" and the main event. This means Nakamura won't be closing the show. Then again, there's another match that might be the main event no matter what, even with Lesnar/Reigns on the card.

PREDICTION: A new champion is crowned as Shinsuke Nakamura takes the title.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Cedric Alexander vs. Drew Gulak or Mustafa Ali

The finals of the Cruiserweight Championship tournament are confirmed to be taking place here, but the two men who will be in those finals is still up in the air as there are still two matches left to go.

Semifinals matches: Drew Gulak vs. Mustafa Ali.

With the way the brackets are positioned, I think we're looking at Cedric Alexander vs. Mustafa Ali, where WWE probably saw their great matches together and figured they should be rewarded with a spotlight at WrestleMania. If that's the case, I honestly don't know which person I'd go with for the favorite to win, as I wouldn't be shocked at all if Ali were to take it, but Alexander makes the most sense.

PREDICTION: For now, I'm going with Cedric Alexander taking the title.

WWE WrestleMania 34 Rousey Angle HHH Stephanie McMahon

Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon

Basically, this is Kurt and Triple H trying to do the bulk of the work, while Ronda gets in the ring and does publicity and tries not to botch too much with Stephanie, who is also not a ring general by any means. The idea of having two legitimate non-WWE athletes teaming up against the husband/wife combo is something that can appeal to a market WWE won't be able to get with something like Styles/Nakamura.

PREDICTION: Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey win.

WWE WrestleMania 34 Miz vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor

Intercontinental Championship Match: The Miz (c) vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins

This is a much better option than just having Braun Strowman squash The Miz, and I think this will be a damn good match, too. I hope it is given enough time. I can see them all having solid chemistry together and it's one of those matches where I'm totally cool with any of the three walking out with the title, instead of particularly rooting for one person over another. Rumor has it, this might turn into a Fatal 5-Way with Elias and Braun Strowman, but we'll see about that.

PREDICTION: Finn Balor wins the title

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Asuka

Well, WWE doesn't have much time to really set this up outside of hoping fans are purely behind it because of the names attached. I'll add more of my perspective of how this is going once they add more to the program other than the two of them looking at it each other breathing heavily. To be perfectly honest, I think Asuka is overrated as an in-ring performer (she's fine, but she's no Shawn Michaels, she just has a streak) and while I like Flair more now than I ever have before, I'm not certain that I'm going to love this match as much as I'm supposed to. Still, that's something up in the air, and I have to be willing to give it a chance and be proven wrong.

PREDICTION: Asuka takes the title.

WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal

So in the interest of being fair, they've added a women's equivalent to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal (despite how there hasn't been an announcement of that, yet) and originally went with the name of the Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal. Within a few days, enough people made enough of a stink to get WWE to acknowledge the bad things Moolah was responsible for in the past, and it's now just being referred to as "the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal" as there isn't enough time to figure out an alternative person to name it after and get a different statue commissioned. I applaud WWE for listening to those people and not just ignoring everything for the sake of their preferences. Anyway, as far as the match itself goes, I imagine the most likely winners are going to be Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James, Natalya, or Ember Moon.

PREDICTION: Right now, let's just go with Sasha Banks.

John Cena vs. The Undertaker

It's not official, but let's be honest and just admit that it is.

PREDICTION: The Undertaker is victorious.

Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

As it stands right now, this is the match, but I imagine we're getting a change (hence why I haven't uploaded the photo yet).

They can't just do Owens vs. Zayn, even though that's what's been "announced". We've seen that a million times and it won't be worth getting invested in again. Likewise, since Owens and Zayn have split up, they can't realistically team up and fight Shane McMahon and a partner unless they want to throw away all the tension between Owens/Zayn from the past few weeks. Plus, who would the partner be? Dolph Ziggler? That doesn't suffice, and I have no faith anymore that Daniel Bryan is wrestling.

Thus, I have to assume it's another Triple Threat match, where the bonus material that they'll try to sell people on is that Daniel Bryan will be the special guest referee.

PREDICTION: It depends on how it changes.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 3/16/2018)

Raw Women's Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Nia Jax

Alexa Bliss is definitely fighting Nia Jax. The only question is whether Bayley and Sasha Banks are included in the match, or if WWE really tries to squeeze them into a separate singles match. I doubt the latter is going to happen, unless the game plan is for Jax to steamroll through Bliss so quickly that their match is less than a minute long and Bayley/Banks essentially makes up for it. However, with the Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal, this might just be straight up Jax/Bliss very quickly.

PREDICTION: Nia Jax takes the title.

5th Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

I imagine this is where you're going to find a lot of people, including some that are virtually guaranteed like Curt Hawkins, Goldust, Heath Slater, Mike Kanellis, Mojo Rawley, Rhyno, Sin Cara, Tye Dillinger, The Ascension, The Colons, The Miztourage, Titus Worldwide, Zack Ryder, etc. Rumor has it Goldberg is winning this. I guess we'll see.

That is, of course, unless they just don't do it because they've prioritized the women's battle royal instead, which would be VERY stupid in my opinion.

PREDICTION: I have no idea yet, but I feel like I will have a shortlist very, very soon.

United States Championship Match: Randy Orton (c) vs. Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal

A few months back, I was calling for Roode to win the title and to face Orton. To an extent, we're getting that, but there's also the added element of Jinder Mahal, who is definitely not skipping out on this feud after all that has gone down. Since Orton just won the title, I don't think we're seeing it change hands again here. I do see him pinning Mahal this time, instead of Roode, though. There's a chance more people get thrown into this match like Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler, yet those feel more like battle royal competitors right now to me than making this three-way feud even more muddled.

PREDICTION: Randy Orton retains.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The Bar (c) vs. Braun Strowman

Well, this is the current situation, even though they've already spoken about how it might be a reversed decision or something. There have been rumors of Matt and Jeff Hardy getting this title shot, along with possibly Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt teaming up. It would also seem weird if Strowman singlehandedly holds the tag team titles, but stranger things have happened in the past, so maybe this actually is going to happen.

PREDICTION: TBD when it becomes official.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Bludgeon Brothers

I figured this was the direction they were going after the past few weeks, but it was sold even more by the attack at Fastlane. Now, it's just a matter of confirmation and simultaneously excluding other teams from getting into the mix, too.

PREDICTION: The Bludgeon Brothers win the titles.

Elias Musical Segment

At this point, I don't think Elias is going to be in a match unless he's participating in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, which may or may not even happen. Instead, I think we're getting a promo from him and Jeff Jarrett will hit him with a guitar.

PREDICTION: Elias does his thing and gets humiliated as a result of it.
