To be, or not to be…. Will he, or won’t he? That is the question in the minds of WWE fans around the world, as they hold their breath for the return of the Undertaker.
The “Deadman” hasn’t been seen on TV since losing to Roman Reigns at last year’s Mania. The dream match everyone has wanted to see for years at WrestleMania may finally come true. John Cena has called out ‘Taker week after week, begging for an answer, to get nothing in response.
This year’s event, in the showcase of the immortals, will feature many firsts. From former UFC fighter Ronda Rousey’s debut, to Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles, all the way to a potential dream match between Cena and the Undertaker, WrestleMania is as stacked as they come.
One of the most exciting things taking place is the in-ring return of Daniel Bryan. After being forced into retirement two years ago by the company, Bryan has been medically cleared to wrestle again. Behind a global phenomenon in the YES! Movement, Bryan will be heading to the ring alongside Shane McMahon, in a tag match against rivals Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
As mentioned before, Ronda Rousey will also be making her in-ring debut, as she teams up with Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle. The two athletes will face off against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, who are the biggest power couple in WWE. This match is bound for greatness and I will say it. Oh, it’s true, it’s DAMN TRUE!
Royal Rumble winner Shinsuke Nakamura will face WWE Champion AJ Styles from Smackdown. These two haven’t crossed paths yet in the WWE. Nakamura is seeking his first WWE Champion reign since debuting in the WWE. AJ Styles, “The Champ that runs the Camp” will not be backing down. I have high hopes for this match as it will be nothing short of phenomenal.
From Smackdown to Raw now, with Roman Reigns taking on Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, in the Main Event of WrestleMania. These two faced off before at ‘Mania but it ended in the “heist of the century”, with Seth Rollins inserting himself in the match and closing out the show as champion. This time around things will be different, as it is much expected that Reigns comes out the Universal Champion.
Other matches are Charlotte vs. Asuka for the Raw Women’s champion. Asuka’s undefeated streak, ranging over 870 days and 260+ victories, will be put to the test as she seeks her first taste of gold. In addition, Intercontinental Champion The Miz will be defending his title against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, a sleeper match that could steal the show.
Tune in this weekend for the 34th Edition of WrestleMania, the WWE’s biggest Pay-Per-View all year. Starting at 4 p.m. CT with a 2-hour preshow, and 6 p.m. CT the actual show, WrestleMania will take place in New Orleans, the same location as WrestleMania 30.
