What's the story?

WrestleMania is now less than two months away and it seems that whilst Raw and SmackDown are building towards Elimination Chamber and Fastlane, it is thought that the WrestleMania card is slowly taking shape as well, which is why odds have now been released on which match is likely to the main event this year's show.

In case you didn't know...

No matches have actually been made official for WrestleMania yet, with Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka the only two stars who have guaranteed their place on the show. AJ Styles still has to defend his Championship at Fastlane before his match against Nakamura can be made official.

There have been rumours that Ronda Rousey will be part of a tag team match with Triple H, The Rock and Stephanie McMahon, as well as The Undertaker facing off against John Cena and Roman Reigns challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.

It seems that there is a lot of competition for the match that goes on last on April 8th, and with Daniel Bryan's in-ring status unknown at present there is no telling which match the company may see as their biggest draw.

The heart of the matter

Bet Wrestling has released the odds for who they feel will the main event this year's WrestleMania and perhaps unsurprisingly it is Lesnar up against Roman Reigns for the Universal Championships, which means that Reigns would be set to main event his fourth consecutive WrestleMania event.

The Undertaker's match was the main event last year as he faced off against The Big Dog, so it makes sense that The Deadman's match is the second favourite to end the show, especially if it is against John Cena and it really is his final outing. Interestingly though, any women's match is now considered to have the same odds to main event the show as The Undertaker, which shows just how far The Women's Evolution has come.

Even though The Royal Rumble winner is guaranteed a WrestleMania main event spot, it seems that Shinsuke Nakamura is the third favourite to actually be given that spot. Any match featuring The Rock and Ronda Rousey's debut on the WWE stage are the two matches that round up the top six as it seems that Rousey's pull isn't enough to see her become the first woman to main event WrestleMania.

What's next?

WrestleMania is now just under two months away and as soon as Fastlane is over next month WWE has less than a month to begin announcing matches for the biggest event of the year. The main event match for the show will probably be known next weekend if Roman Reigns emerges victorious at Elimination Chamber.

Author's take

Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns was the first main event that Reigns competed in at WrestleMania back in 2015 and it seems that it's come full circle since the duo may be able to finally finish what they started all those years ago. It would have made sense for Nakamura and Styles to be the main event but Lesnar is a draw for WWE so it seems that he will always be seen as the better option.
