In an unexpected twist Daniel Bryan returns to the ring teaming with Shane McMahon versus Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
“We know our fans are coming early and staying late, and consuming everything the host city has to offer”, he said. The main show starts at 7 PM ET. On Sunday, WWE’s Our Story will have complete coverage of the event, from the perspective of both WWE Superstars and fans.
On Sunday, WWE will be hosting their 34th annual Wrestlemania event live from New Orleans, Louisiana. The Bar should probably win this one, as Braun will not hold the belts for very long, and the whole thing just exists to get him onto the card. His opponent, Shinsuke Nakamura, looks be-be getting prepped for a significant push and that begins with him as the new WWE Champion. I’m inclined to agree. It gave them their first taste of what being in front of more than 75,000 fans was like. Cedric Alexander scored victories over Gran Metalik, TJP, and Roderick Strong to earn his spot at WrestleMania. Nakamura’s time will come, though.
Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle (-530) vs.
There’s added intrigue, because since joining WWE, Asuka is undefeated.
Prediction: Asuka. No doubt. Charlotte Flair. Asuka wanted to Flair so she could, in her mind: “beat the best”. Spanning two hours, the WrestleMania 34 Kickoff features three matches. Particularly on the RAW side as Nia Jax has enjoyed one of the more organic launches to the top of the company in recent memory.
For the first time in the company’s history, two Japanese wrestlers – one male and one female – are poised to win professional wrestling’s richest prizes. It’s also the only place, at this writing, you’ll get to see LA Park, and who doesn’t love the Chairman of the Board?
The Masked Ace has returned, and I have your Wrestlemania predictions here!
-The Usos vs. New Day vs. Bludgeon Brothers in a Triple Threat for the Smackdown Tag Titles.
And just imagine Kid Rock – incidentally in the Hall of Fame this year – the man responsible for the American Badass theme performing for Taker one last time, just too good to be true, right?
But pretty much no matter who is in this match, team Braun is taking the titles. Mayor Mitch Landrieu flew with members of the group representing New Orleans to the WWE’s offices in Stamford, Connecticut, to make the pitch personally.
-Randy Orton vs. Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Rusev in a four-way for the U.S. Championship.
This would confirm scuttlebutt that Lesnar’s contract with the WWE is up and he will make another switch back to MMA.
And on the U.S. title side, I think it is definitely time to get that title back around Rusev! Although it is strongly believed that a match between John Cena and The Undertaker will occur, there has been speculation that he may return as his short-lived biker character, according to Forbes.
– Adam Cole will be wrestling in two matches at NXT Takeover: New Orleans.
I think the only way we don’t see John Cena vs The Undertaker is if someone bigger intervenes.
