Wrestlemania 34: WWE's women wrestlers continue fight for a level playing field

08 April 2018

I think Balor wins this one just because he hasn't won anything since becoming the first ever WWE Universal Champion, a title he had to vacate due to injury. Apart from both the WWE title matches, all the other belts will also be defended at the event this year. They have faced each other before when they were in New Japan Pro Wrestling, but now fans want the general audience to witness the athleticism and in-ring storytelling that happens when these two meet.

WrestleMania 34 is on track to bring big business and audiences. Therefore, WWE has bothered to reveal Taker in advance as this won't compel anyone to purchase the network. Roman Reigns will once again challenge champion Brock Lesnar, this time for the Universal Championship. Since 2014, Wrestlemania Week has become a bigger event with two additional ticketed events: "NXT: Takeover New Orleans", which features the next WWE stars in action; and "Smackdown Live", a second live weekly broadcast in addition to "Monday Night Raw". You may not know how thrilling the ongoing feud between the New Day and the Usos has been, for example, but you've probably heard of The Rock.

Outside of maybe three championship matches, consider the results of WrestleMania 34 to be unpredictable.

IPL 2018, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings, Live cricket score
Bravo is 34 now, hasn't played competitive cricket for the last two months, and his statistics in the IPL are shockingly average. In the Opening match of Indian Premier League ( IPL ) 2018, Mumbai Indians takes on the team Chennai Super Kings .

There are some obvious unknowns out there, and then there are some more obscure ones.

There's added intrigue, because since joining WWE, Asuka is undefeated. The Undertaker had a farewell moment in last year's WrestleMania, but New Orleans is the city where his incomparable WrestleMania streak was broken by Brock Lesnar four years ago.

So, now that we've established that WWE and Wrestlemania are real players in the "real world", let's talk about why it's fun.

Sonny Gray pitched six effective innings and rookie Miguel Andujar hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly before the Yankees broke away. Braves 8, Rockies 3: Brandon McCarthy used his arm and bat to help Atlanta win at Coors Field in Colorado's home opener.

WrestleMania 34 is on April 8. Which matches on the card are ones you can't afford to miss on Sunday? However, no WrestleMania is ever complete without a few surprises and shocking entrants that leave the WWE Universe speechless.

Two brands with colorful, to say the least, histories face off in a show that should benefit all parties involved. But it's more than just that, as the tag team titles are on the line. If anyone in this match could use a win of any sort, it's Becky. WWE's iconic yearly show has always marked the unofficial start of the wrestling year, and it's only grown in stature since its inaugural event in 1985. This would be a great match to show to someone who has never seen WWE before, just for the reactions.

You can get a sense for what WWE stars will experience at the top of the ramp in this behind-the-scenes video. "That would be a 5% increase over last year's paid subscriber number, enough for WWE to tout that they've reached a milestone of 2 million total subscribers for the first time in the service's history".

Give Irving credit for this: The 2017-18 season has definitely been insane for the Celtics and their emotionally-drained fans. With or without Irving , things will need to change if the Bucks want to advance into the second round of the playoffs.

In the special attraction mixed tag team match featuring women's MMA standout Ronda Rousey, Kurt Angle and Ronda are favored at -530 to defeat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a grudge match. There are plenty of potentially show-stealing matches on the card, and plenty to keep fans invested, especially in the United Kingdom, where the show will not finish until the early hours of the morning.
