5 biggest WrestleMania 34 match rumours that you need to know
WrestleMania season is almost upon us and the rumoured match card for this year’s annual extravaganza is among the most exciting WWE has put together in a long time.
The WWE Championship and Universal Championship matches appear to be set in stone, while the outcome of the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble is almost certain to produce the first one-on-one encounter between two female Superstars at WrestleMania for 11 years.
In this article, we take a look at the five biggest matches that are rumoured to be taking place in New Orleans on 8 April.
#5 Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar
In a repeat of the headline match at WrestleMania 31, it’s been rumoured for the last year that Roman Reigns will challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 34.
It’s been clear over the last few months that WWE is building to a match between the two, with Lesnar defeating Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman in title matches on pay-per-view and Reigns picking up statement victories over The Undertaker and John Cena.
“The Beast” is expected to depart WWE in 2018 and, unlike their meeting at WrestleMania 31, “The Big Dog” is expected to gain a rare clean victory against the former UFC star at "The Show of Shows" to win his first Universal title.
Expect Reigns to earn the championship match at the Raw-exclusive Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in February, as opposed to him winning the Royal Rumble – that didn’t go down so well last time the Rumble was in Philadelphia.
