Matt Burns' WWE Wrestlemania 34 Predictions

April 7, 2018

 

WWE WrestleMania 34 has finally arrived, the showcase of the immortals, the grandest stage of them all. This is the big event that every wrestler on the WWE Roster aims to be on and to try to get a WrestleMania Moment, to be immortalised down in history to be remembered for many years to come. It’s also the big event where most current storylines will come to close, but also have some shock twists and turns. It’s usually the event that most would state “Anything can happen” and something a long them lines, usually does.

 

With all that being said, let’s get on with the predictions.

 

Like in previous predictions, I will be following these rules/guidelines: -

  • I will be predicting only the current matches that have been announced so far at the moment in time. (With the excepts of John Cena Vs Undertaker, which hasn’t been announced but think will happen due to all the build-up that they have been doing leading up to WrestleMania 34 & If I think a Money In The Bank Cash In will happen)

  • The matches will be in Random Order as I don't know what order they will be presented to us.

  • If a match gets restarted due to some rule breaking being found out and etc, then the restarted outcome will be considered the true cannon result and the previous one will be discarded due to the restart.

  • (c) - Refers to the Champion(s) heading into the match

Pre-Show

 

WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal

 

Winner: Sasha Banks

 

The reason why I have gone for this option, is to try and continue the angle of Sasha/Bayley to keep going, which we could then have Sasha hold the victory over Bayley, which will push things closer to boiling point and get the feud ready for when WWE do decide to put them in a singles match against each other.

Pre-Show

 

WWE Cruiserweight Tournament Final

 

Cedric Alexander Vs Mustafa Ali

 

For the vacant WWE Cruiserweight Championship

 

Winner: Cedric Alexander

(And New WWE Cruiserweight Champion)

 

I think that this match will be the stand-out match for the Pre-Show, as both are very reliable talent, that the WWE Universe (Crowd, Fans & Etc) can get behind and they also have some interesting, high-risk offence that will make it stand out. The reason why I think Cedric Alexander will take the win, is because I feel that on more than one occasion he has come close to becoming Cruiserweight Champion and that he was originally going to become the next champion when Enzo held it, which then became vacant and sort of meant that Cedric has had to wait a bit longer for it, so he will be hungry and ready for the chance.

Pre- Show

 

André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

 

Winner: Samoa Joe

 

This will be a great way to allow Samoa Joe to make a grand return to the WWE and what a time to return as well, at WrestleMania. There have been reports that on Raw that Samoa Joe was backstage, watching the show, catching up with work colleague and possibly to make arrangements for when he returns. If Joe doesn’t return at WrestleMania then he will most likely return on the Episode of Raw after WrestleMania putting himself in the WWE Universal Championship picture from the get go. However, I think WWE will see that by having Joe return during the Match, he could use this to get momentum and get himself into the WWE Universal Championship by simply dominating this match and eliminating his completion in short work.

The Bar (Cesaro & Sheamus) (c)

Vs

Braun Strowman & TBA (To Be Announced)

 

for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

 

Winners: Braun Strowman & TBA

(And NEW WWE Raw Tag Team Champions)

 

The match I feel is the easiest to predict what the result will be because Braun seems to be a 1 man wrecking crew, that seems to be going through opponent, after opponent and still looking favourably in the WWE Universe’s eyes as well. What will actually be more difficult to predict, is who will be tagging with Braun Strowman for this match and if I was going to make a prediction, I wouldn’t mind stating, that I think it would be Elias because he has been getting over with the WWE Universe, especially when he mentions “What does WWE Stand for, Walk With Elias”.

Fatal Four-Way Match

 

Randy Orton (c) Vs Bobby Roode Vs Jinder Mahal Vs Rusev

 

for the WWE United States Championship

 

Winner: Rusev

(And NEW WWE United States Champion)

 

I know that to many, they might not consider Rusev to be a top choice to be the victor in this match, but have you seen how over "Rusev Day!" is getting. Rusev's merchandise seems to be doing well, which might work in his favour.

 

However, what might not work in his favour, is the fact that there is a rumour that he might have been added into this match, due to possibly considering leaving due to not being happy with his current direction and WWE didn't want to lose him with the whole "Rusev Day!" going so well.

 

Now I feel that him winning the WWE United States Championship, would create a WrestleMania Moment, because the WWE Universe will most likely start chanting "Rusev Day!" which I am sure that Vince would approve of this.

Triple Threat Match

 

The Miz (c) Vs Seth Rollins Vs Finn Bálor

 

For the WWE Intercontinental Championship

 

Winner: The Miz

(And STILL WWE Intercontinental Champion)

 

I know that most will have Finn Bálor down to win this match as he seems to be the odds on favourite, but I think this match will throw in a nice surprise by having The Miz get lucky and possibly steal the win from under Finn to defend his championship, at which point this could be a possible turning point for Finn to do a slow burning Heel turn.

Charlotte Flair (c) Vs Asuka

 

for the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship

 

Winner: Asuka

(And NEW WWE SmackDown Women's Champion)

 

This match will have plenty of hype going into it specially with the fact that Asuka has never been pinned or submitted since arriving in the WWE. Now 1 of 2 things could happen here, which would be that Asuka becomes the New WWE SmackDown Women's Champion and moves over to SmackDown or The Streak is over at WrestleMania, however I think WWE will want to keep The Streak going for a bit longer and so Asuka will come out the winner but she won't be celebrating for long because Carmella will arrive with Money In The Bank in hand.

Money In The Bank Cash In

 

Asuka (c) Vs Carmella

 

For a WWE SmackDown Women's Championship

 

Winner: Asuka

(And STILL WWE SmackDown Women's Champion)

 

As much as most won't expect Asuka to be victorious in this match after a hard-fought contest against Charlotte Flair, I think Carmella will get too cocky for her own sneakers and it will end up costing her the match, with either by a roll-up or a surprise submission for Asuka to win. 

Mixed Tag Team Match

 

Kurt Angle & Ronda Rousey

Vs

Triple H & Stephanie McMahon

 

Winners: Kurt Angle & Ronda Rousey

 

If this Match Headlines WrestleMania as the Main Event, I will understand why they have done it, because to try and use Ronda's Mainstream Pull to get as many people watching the Event, however this is her Debut Match for the company and feel that either the WWE Championship Match or WWE Universe Championship Match should be the Main Event. 

 

However, with that said, I think that Triple H & Kurt Angle will recreate the magic that they had in the past and put on a very good show but also being careful of any injuries that they might have. I think that Stephanie will get some shots in on Ronda but will quickly want to leave as soon as Ronda sets her focus on her.

 

I think the end will come with a Double Submission, with Kurt doing an Angle Lock on Triple H & Ronda with an Arm Bar on Stephanie.

Triple Threat Tag Team Match

 

The Usos (Jey & Jimmy Uso) (c)

Vs

The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and/or Xavier Woods)

Vs

The Bludgeon Brothers (Harper & Rowan)

 

For the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship

 

Winners: The Bludgeon Brothers

(And NEW WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions)

 

The reason why I have gone with The Bludgeon Brothers, is simply to allow another team to be holding the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, put a fresh team in the mix because I feel that the SmackDown Tag Team Championship has been going back and forth between The Usos (Who have handle the Championship for a long time now) & The New Day (Who handle it before The Usos). Also, if The Bludgeon Brothers do win the match, it will setup a feud for them against The Usos and they seem to work well against them as well. So, it will bring more for the SmackDown Tag Team Division.

Alexa Bliss (c) Vs Nia Jax

 

For the WWE Raw Woman's Championship

 

Winner: Alexa Bliss

(And STILL WWE Raw Women's Champion)

 

I know that Alexa Bliss has held the WWE Raw Women's Championship for a long time now, but I think she will be successful at WrestleMania because she will most likely have Mickie James getting involved somehow and come away with the victory. Plus, Nia has only recently possibly turned Face, so I would say give that some time first before having her become the next WWE Raw Women's Champion - Most likely at the Next PPV.

Daniel Bryan & Shane McMahon

Vs

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

 

If Owens & Zayn win, they will be rehired to SmackDown

 

Winners: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

 

There are 2 ways I can see this going, which is that if Daniel & Shane, do get the victory, then Kevin & Sami will most likely be getting transferred to Raw. If Kevin & Sami do win, I think the victory will arrive by the hands of Daniel Bryan, who could surprise everyone and turn Heel to help them, get their jobs back. So, then Shane will Fire Daniel Bryan as the GM of SmackDown (Which will leave an opening for a New GM), but also have him on his Roster to at least try get some form of payback on him.

Surprise WrestleMania Match

 

John Cena Vs The Undertaker

 

Winner: The Undertaker

 

For how much hype and build-up that has been happening since John Cena first called out The Undertaker, it would be a massive shame & let down for a match not to take place. Especially when for 4 weeks Cena has had the WWE Universe calling out for him.

 

I will say I do expect that Cena will attempt one more time at WrestleMania, only this time the lights will go out and we hear "Dead Man Walking" and the Music for The Undertaker hits but it's "The American Bad Ass" version of The Undertaker who answers the call.

 

This will throw Cena off his game as he will have been expecting "The Dead Man" version of The Undertaker, which the mind games will most likely cost John Cena the match, by possibly him attempting a move The Undertaker usually does, for it to be countered, then done on him instead.

AJ Styles (c) Vs Shinsuke Nakamura

 

For the WWE Championship

 

Winner: AJ Styles

(And STILL WWE Champion)

 

This Match will most likely be the Match of the Night because they have created magic previously at Wrestle Kingdom 10. So, they will most likely want to go one better and bring the house down once more.

 

The reason why I have picked AJ Styles for the victory, is simply because the last time, they encountered each other, Shinsuke came away with the win and that I feel that it would even them against each other, which will most likely lead to a 3rd encounter against each other which will be even bigger, as they will have one victory against each other.

Brock Lesnar (c) Vs Roman Reigns

 

for the WWE Universal Championship

 

Winner: Roman Reigns

(And NEW WWE Universal Champion)

 

This match is most likely going to be the easiest to predict, seeing as this match could have been predicted for almost a whole year and is something that WWE has tried to get done at a previous WrestleMania, but WWE changed it, as it wouldn't be best for business.

 

However, they have put themselves in a position where they have to do it, this time around especially with the fact that there is talk of Brock going back to the UFC and etc. This time though, it's different because they are addressing the situation instead of hiding it, which has actually slowly allowed Roman to get some of the WWE Universe (some still Boo but can't win them all) and I think the Promos that Roman has done, have been better than some of his past ones as well.

 

So at least they have done it the best they can and we can look forward to see a Full Time Roster Champion being crowned at WrestleMania 34. However, WWE could always throw a twist in and have Brock win it, which will have everyone wondering what's going to happen, but I feel that Roman will become the Next Universal Champion.

These are my predictions for WWE WrestleMania 34

 

I think there will be a good number of shock twists and turns at this PPV Event and most of the time WWE don’t let us down. I feel that there will be some surprise visits from the past, that will most likely try to help push the current generation onto bigger and brighter things. What will also be this year’s WrestleMania Moment? Well there is only a limited number of ways to find out, which are, to either be there or to watch it on the WWE Network/PPV. However, if you are reading this, I highly doubt, you will want to miss this event.

 

So, with all that said, please let me know in the comments section below, if you agree, disagree and what your predictions are for WWE WrestleMania 34.
