This is the reason why WWE decided to add the stipulation where the Royal Rumble winners could face either brand’s champion.


Reports are also saying plans have Ronda Rousey working a mixed tag against Triple H and Stephanie and they are hoping to get The Rock to be Ronda’s partner. If this is the case I don’t get why they made such a big deal of Ronda coming out and stealing Asuka’s thunder if she wasn’t going to be involved in a title match.

Cos Trips and Steph all all over Ronda. It's good that they want to keep her away from the title match...however with Dwayne unlikely to be available to wrestle who'll really take that position? Is this the "Bigger than a title match" thing they're planning with Cena? Or will the let Balor be the one to get the rub from Trips?

I think that's the right call to begin with. Cena would be a good stand-in for The Rock if he's not going to be allowed to wrestle due to insurance issues. Outside of that I don't see anybody being able to reasonably slot into that matchup for a mixed match challenge between Stephanie & Triple H vs Rousey... if Piper were still around and a bit younger, that'd be great.

lol that'd be two mixed tag matches in a row for Cena at Mania. I guess that would test Cena's commitment to being a company guy if he was doing that. Probably get rewarded with a WM35 title win to break Flair's record.

Quote As noted before, it appears WWE is hoping to have Ronda Rousey team up with The Rock to take on the Stephanie McMahon & Triple H duo at WrestleMania. With the Rock's participation in the event truly up in the air, backup plans seem to be to either have Braun Strowman or even Kurt Angle at the ready in case the original idea doesn't pan out.
 
It's clear the other year when Ronda grabbed Steph that the long term plan in a ideal world would be that.
 
Having Asuka take her time to pick a champion blends into it. If she picks Charlotte we might see the mixed tag match (in the new mixed tag era). If she picks Alexa it saves Ronda for Charlotte.
 
If the original idea doesn't happen, it shouldn't happen at all. Braun and Kurt should be in one on one matches on the biggest stage.

I would admit the match as originally planned (Rock & Rousey against Helmsley & Steph) makes sense, as the seeds of it were planted at WrestleMania 31 a few years ago. I could live with it and see it as an entertainment attraction. Plus of course Rock and Helmsley have a legendary rivalry going back to 1997.

However, no way would I want an unproven rookie like Rousey go against a veteran Champ in Charlotte or even Bliss. People should earn matches against Champs, even celebrities. 

If neither are Champ by that time, it's not that bad. I've resigned to the fact that Rousey will take an unearned WrestleMania spot either way because she's a celebrity. 

I actually agree with you that Strowman should be in a singles match at Wrestlemania.

Strowman should definitely be in a major singles match, he deserves better than some celebrity one off attraction, with the run he’s on he needs something with a more long term goal.

I think it’s unlikely The Rock will be wrestling unless they can do it in a way where his participation is kept very minimal and basic so he can avoid injury risk. I could live with Kurt Angle as a replacement for The Rock, it limits the strain put on Kurt by being in a tag match and it makes storyline sense with the history between him and Triple H.

Ultimately this match is all about Ronda's debut so I would rather they use part-timers like Angle than involve any of the full time roster.

They've been building towards Triple H vs Braun so I could see how this would go down, especially since Stephanie is the... er... what do they call her role on TV again? Commissioner? of Raw. It would be very easy to have her come in and lay the smackdown on Braun and for Braun to retaliate, thus setting up the match of his vs the Authority, and just needing a woman to join him.

Still would rather Braun vs Lesnar though... maybe Braun can win the title at the elimination chamber, and then shit can go down while he is champion, get stripped of the title and 'fired' setting up the feud for mania?

Quote  Below is the current rumored card for WrestleMania 34, which takes place on April 8th from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. It should be noted that this is the rumored card based on what has been reported. No word yet on who RAW Tag Team Champions The Bar or SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos may defend against but there could be multi-team matches. There's also no word yet on who WWE United States Champion Bobby Roode might defend against.

WWE Universal Title Match
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar

WWE Title Match
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles

RAW Women's Title Match
Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss

SmackDown Women's Title Match
Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair

WWE Intercontinental Title Match
Braun Strowman vs. The Miz

Ronda Rousey and a partner (The Rock & WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle have been rumored) vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon

John Cena vs. The Undertaker

Finals of the WWE Cruiserweight Title Tournament

The 5th Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

I think everyone is expecting Reigns v Lesnar so thats no surprise

What is a surprise is that they seem to be moving towards Asuka v Charlotte as opposed to having her face off against Bliss. Should be a good match as both Women are pretty much dominant.

Bliss v Jax is interesting as they are both best friends

Strowman v Miz would also be well received and even the mix tag for Rousey is good.

Everyone has wanted to see Cena v Taker for years now but maybe its a bit too late given Takers physical condition

I can’t see Asuka moving to the SmackDown brand unless they plan on trading Charlotte back to RAW with a Superstar Shake Up deal post Mania. Actually Asuka on SmackDown would be beneficial all round considering she’d have fresh opponents (she already beat Sasha and Bayley two straight weeks recently) and if RAW has Ronda, then SmackDown needs a strong female angle heading into Mania.

The rumored card is very hit or miss for me. Some of the matches are must-see, the others I have little to no interest in seeing. There seems to be very little that sits in the middle ground.

The trigger for Cena v. Taker should have happened a LONG time ago. I can't say I'm interested in seeing Taker limp around the ring again. I stand by my opinion that he should have retired after the Lesnar match, because what has been accomplished since then? Pretty much nothing.

Speaking of having no interest: Rousey/??? v. The Helmslys. Unless they're giving Rousey ring time prior to WM (doubting that it'll happen), the match will most likely be male-dominated with Rousey getting maybe 2-3 minutes of ring time before making Steph submit. And anyone familiar with Rousey's UFC work should know damn well that WWE will want her to use the armbar as her finisher.

Continuing with the trend, Reigns v Lesnar II. Yawn...I'm going to be skipping this match. Zero interest in seeing "The Big Dog" overcome the odds against "The Beast Incarnate" and reclaim "His yard". (Did I miss any of the tag lines? I'm sure I did, there's a million of them.)

A bit of a surprise that there is only one multi-man match. Past years have indicated that WWE tries to get as many people as they can on the show, which means a few of the matches have more than 2 men/women in them. Since there isn't any tag-team title matches announced yet, I fully expect one of them to be a gimmick match of some caliber.

Asuka moving to Smackdown may be the best move, since she's practically beaten every woman on the Raw roster many times over. Plus they'll want to keep Asuka and Ronda on separate shows so they can cash on in them facing off later on down the road. Asuka v. Charlotte could (and probably would be) one of the best matches on the show.
