What will the main event be?
The expectations for the Universal championship match between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar were all over the map, but one thing was fairly certain: It was going to be fast, it was going to be violent, and it was going to be a test of the endurance of both men.
Also, it could be the final match for "The Dead Man".
Taker has earned legions of loyal fans, but his run had to come to an end at some point.
There was nothing left to prove for The Undertaker, so he finally left his gear in the ring and retired after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33. I also wouldn't rule out Bray Wyatt vs. High-flying champion Neville will meet Austin Aries, a former TNA and ROH World Heavyweight champion who served as a member of the WWE 205 Live commentary team until recently. Goldberg and Lesnar were leaving WWE after the affair and made a decision to just go through the motions to basically collect their paycheck and ended up getting loudly booed by the sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden for their less than stellar effort.
Could this really be it? This is Reigns' time to shine, and the Taker chose to call it a career. Say it ain't so. Now this could possibly be the last time you ever see me in a ring. It will be special.
Sure the last time the two went head-to-head, at the Survivor Series, the contest, or no contest, was done and dusted inside two minutes.
His return to WWE and capture of the Universal Championship was a dream come true for many WWE fans at first. It will be interesting to see who steps forward to challenge Lesnar (or Goldberg, just in case) on Monday.
Rollins is my pick, and if he does win, it will be Triple H's 12th Mania loss, which would be the most all-time. Sunday's big pay-per-view will be no exception. Triple H and John Cena/Nikki Bella vs.
"I had no intention of trying to put myself on the WrestleMania card, or thinking I was going to be put on it, or thinking it was even a possibility", Goldberg said. And that way could feature interference from Samoa Joe.
Perceptions about women in the ring have shifted over time from industry leaders and more important, the fans.
Speaking of performers, Shane-O-Mac has found a way to deliver the goods in previous high-profile matches.
Thus Raw will either have to go a few big events without a champion or Lesnar will have to commit to far more dates than he usually does. Sheamus and Cesaro are destined to split up eventually, while the belts just don't look right on Anderson and Gallows.
For the fourth straight year in a row, the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal returns to Wrestlemania. It seems like a foregone conclusion that Strowman will win the event. My prediction: He eliminates EVERY other competitor. On an episode of WWE Raw, Braun Strowman called out Roman Reigns but it was The Undertaker who appeared.
On Sunday, the cruiserweight championship will be defended on Wrestlemania for the first time in 13 years.
