Thanks to betwrestling.com for sending this in:

Wrestlemania season is often filled with speculation on which of the matches will be put in the main event slot and be the final match of the event. It is considered the greatest of honors to go on last on the biggest and most monumental show of the year. While the matches for “The Show of Shows” is yet non-existent, it is slowly coming together the card draws near. There have also been many rumors from insiders as to what the announced matches will end up being.

Grosvenor Casinos is offering odds on what the finale of Wrestlemania will be and the favorite is a match that has been the long rumored Wrestlemania 31 rematch of Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns. This match is favored at -150, and even though Roman didn't win the Royal Rumble to challenge for Lesnar's Universal Championship, he will be competing in the Elimination Chamber in hopes of getting this title opportunity. Beings as Reigns has main evented the past 3 Wrestlemanias, these odds are completely sensible.

The Undertaker has even odds of +100 to be featured against any opponent in the main event. While Taker seemingly had his final match last year in the main event of Wrestlemania 33 against Roman Reigns, leaked information suggests another match in the works. There are even universally believed rumors of Taker and John Cena finally having Wrestlemania match and strangely there are no odds on that specific match.

The Divas Revolution is apparently still going, with the ultimate goal being a Women's match main eventing Wrestlemania. Women's bouts have already main events recent PPVs and TV Shows, the latest being the first ever Women's Royal Rumble in Philadelphia. This match made history and while Asuka won the match against 29 other women, she was overshadowed by a Ronda Rousey showing up afterwards. It would not be surprising to learn that Rousey's involvement with Wrestlemania are the reason a Women's match going on last is a respectable +100, an even bet.

About the only match officially announced is Shinsuke Nakamura challenging A Styles for the WWE Championship and this match has odds of +200. Another bet being accepted, while it is unlikely he will even show up at the event, see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson having odds of +300 to main event. One possible match for Ronda Rousey being rumored would be her teaming up with Braun Strowman to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon and that match has odds of +300. If WWE could get The Rock for this match, which is what they are believed to want, it would be a payoff to a Wrestlemania 31 angle that took place when Rousey first appeared in a WWE ring.

    WrestleMania Main Event(Final Match of the Event)
    Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns -150
    Any Women's Match +100
    Any Match Featuring The Undertaker +100
    AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura +200
    Any Match Featuring The Rock +300
    Braun Strowman and Ronda Rousey vs Triple H and Stephanie McMahon +300
    Any Match Featuring Daniel Bryan +500
    Braun Strowman vs Brock Lesnar +800
    Brock Lesnar vs Shinsuke Nakamura +1500
 
The whole gimmick of the Royal Rumble should mean more and so the last match of the night should be AJ Styles and Nakamura.
 
It should be a match that will be long and send the fans home happy. Seeing Brock phone it in against someone who will be booed heavily, isn't that option.
 
Nor should it be a women's match just for the sake of it.

It will not be Nakamura vs Styles, that I'm almost certain of, I would actually sooner put money on that match being the card opener rather than the main event.

It will be either Reigns vs Lesnar or The Undertaker vs John Cena.

I don't think they've stated for a long time that winning the Royal Rumble guarantees you the Wrestlemania main event, it just guarantees you a World title match at the show.

It used to be, back when there was one main championship and it was the cornerstone of the Wrestlemania build. Nowadays, just means you're getting a championship match. The main event isn't going to happen unless your name happens to be Roman Reigns. Unfortunately, Styles and Nakamura won't be the main event. The highest it's going to be is maybe 3rd or 4th from the top.

Nobody wants Brock v. Reigns II, but that's what we're going to get. WWE was gracious enough to give us Nakamura as the Rumble winner. The fans are going to have to repay that favor by watching Reigns beat Lesnar to close out the show.

I do believe that we're going to get there, but this isn't the year that the women are going to close the show. Depending on how the women's divisions are looking, I don't think it would be a far cry to say it could happen in the next 2-4 years.

It will 100% be Reigns v Lesnar

Taker v Cena would have main evented when Taker was undefeated and not a shell of his former self

According to a new report from Sports Illustrated, there are two women’s matches set for WWE’s WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view event. This does not include Ronda Rousey’s role and match. The following two women’s matches are currently penciled in for the event:

* RAW Women’s Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Nia Jax
* SmackDown! Live Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Asuka

As previously reported here on eWrestlingNews.com, Rousey is scheduled to take part in a mixed tag-team match against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. According to the SI report, WWE is considering The Rock, Kurt Angle, Shane McMahon and Seth Rollins as her possible tag-team partner. There is fear within WWE that The Rock working WrestleMania 34 may cause his films some insurance problems. As far as Shane McMahon is concerned, he is still involved in an ongoing angle with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Seth Rollins was set to face Jason Jordan at WrestleMania 34 but that will no longer be happening due to Jordan’s neck injury and surgery. Rollins does have some longstanding storyline issues with Triple H, though.

I would expect a clusterfuck type match to be added to the card, so every woman can be on the show.
 
There is no storyline reason that makes sense, as to why Asuka would leave the flagship show, especially as she's already beaten Alexa.
 
I'm not bothered about The Rock. It gets boring bringing back oldies that are never around.

I think it's a safe bet whatever match Roman Reigns is in will main event, as that would mean he would have main evented four WrestleManias in a row. 

These kinds of rumors that state all the likely upcoming matches are exactly why I don't like reading sites like TUP; but I still can't help but to visit. We know months ahead of time what the big matches will be within fair accuracy. I do like this place or else I wouldn't be here, but for once I want to be surprised. 

As a pure fan, the match I want to see the most is actually Brock vs Undertaker again; with Taker getting revenge for ending the streak and maybe retiring as Champion. But that feud seemed to be done in 2015. 

We get what we get.

I could live with any of those matches. It would be good to see Nia as Champion; and we all know Asuka is (very deservingly) getting the belt. 

As for Rocky, I'll take a match with him. It would be good to see him renew his old feud with Hunter Hearst Helmsley. If he can't wrestle, the event will still be good nonetheless.

Sorry but two womens matches is too much, I can't deal with this new girl power trend it's almost as bad as when Triple H turned into a basement dwelling virgin and signed all the vanila midgets from the indys.

I would suspect Carmella will cash in before Asuka can get the definitive win, sparing Charlotte from a clean loss at mania and making Carmella a household name. I've suspected it for a while.

It's a shame they couldn't get another women's match on the card but I suppose the mixed tag will help to serve that purpose.

You say there's no storyline reason for Asuka to leave because she's already beaten the champion. That is the storyline reason. She's already beaten everyone on Raw, champion included. What's the point in staying for a belt when there's so much fresh competition on the other side?

Quote Kevin Owens is reportedly set to face Sami Zayn at WWE’s WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view. Dave Meltzer said the following regarding the match:

“Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn thing made me think that they wrestling each other at WrestleMania. Obviously, if they are going to do something they will do the big tease on March 11th. They aren’t going to be going at each other or splitting up before March 11th, I don’t think.”

Of course, take this report as only a rumor for now.

I'm sure they would love facing their best mate on the biggest stage of the industry they are in, but I wouldn't want to see it.
 
We've had them fued before and not even that long ago. Being on the same page as a team is much more refreshing.
 
If it does happen maybe they will let Sami have a big win over KO at long last, in his much weaker E career.

I'd love to see that match at Mania

The 2 of them put on some phenomenal matches outside of WWE and being best mates gives them that in ring chemistry to put on a potential 5 star match

Whether they would be given the freedom or the time to do that in WWE remains to be seen but given the way the angle has went lately - they had to face off at some point
