As the countdown to WrestleMania 34 is on, attention begins to turn to what matches will take place on "The Grandest Stage of Them All".

We already know that Shinsuke Nakamura will challenge Smackdown's WWE Champion, AJ Styles, while Asuka will challenge the Raw Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss.

Also, we know that the winner of the men's Elimination Chamber match, which takes place on Sunday, February 25th, will challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship.

But currently, there are no fully confirmed matches due to upcoming Championship defences.

As wrestling fans we all love to do a bit of fantasy booking, myself included. And with very little being set in stone to take place at "The Greatest Spectacle in Sports Entertainment" I figured I'd try my hand at presenting five matches I think should take place at Wrestlemania 34.

#5 Bayley vs. Sasha Banks

The Hugger and The Boss have great history together

We've seen these two face off back in NXT, where the pair had an incredible series of matches, the most notable of which was at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in 2015, where Bayley and Banks produced what can only be described as magic on a night when Bayley would capture her first NXT Women's Championship. That match has been considered by many to be WWE's match of the year in 2015, male or female.

Since their transition to the main roster though we haven't seen these two face off as part of a feud. They had a match last year on Raw, which had number one contendership implications, and it seemed in early 2017 that WWE might have been teasing a potential match between the two for last years WrestleMania, but the match never materialized and instead saw a Fatal Four Way between Bayley, Banks, Nia Jax and Charlotte Flair.

However, during the Women's Royal Rumble match we saw Sasha Banks eliminate Bayley, and have seen some on-screen tension developing on Raw between the two best friends. They will both compete in the historic first ever Raw Women's Elimination Chamber match later this month, giving the perfect opportunity for further seeds to be planted for Sasha's heel turn and the match to be built strongly heading into WrestleMania. If their history of matches is anything to go by this would be another instant classic.
