While nothing has been 100 percent confirmed, Wrestling Observer Newsletter‘s Dave Meltzer revealed the projected card for WrestleMania 34 on Thursday, according to his sources.
As reported previously, Roman Reigns is reportedly penciled in to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in the main event. The rumored match between John Cena and The Undertaker is also still expected to take place.
Recently signed former UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey — who made her debut immediately after the women’s Royal Rumble match on Sunday — is expected to participate in a tag team match alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
However, Johnson is set to film Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” shortly after the event, so may not be able to participate for insurance reasons and would be replaced by WWE Hall of Famer and RAW general manager Kurt Angle.
Meltzer also projects that Women’s Royal Rumble winner Asuka will challenge SmackDown Women’s champion Charlotte Flair, which will lead to the rumored all-women’s Elimination Chamber match at the upcoming pay-per-view, leading to a match between Nia Jax and RAW Women’s champion Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania.
Here’s a look at the entire projected card, according to Meltzer’s sources:
Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns
John Cena vs. Undertaker
WWE Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles
HHH/Steph vs. Ronda and The Rock (or Kurt Angle)
RAW Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax
SmackDown Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka
Jason Jordan vs. Seth Rollins (If Jordan is able to compete)
Intercontinental Championship: The Miz vs. Braun Strowman
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Cruiserweight tournament finals
Interestingly, Meltzer’s projected card excludes the likes of several top active competitors, including former WWE champion Jinder Mahal, former Universal champions Finn Bálor and Kevin Owens, former RAW Women’s champions Sasha Banks and Bayley, former SmackDown Women’s champions Becky Lynch and Naomi, both of the current RAW (Sheamus and Cesaro) and SmackDown (Usos) Tag Team champions, Sami Zayn and Samoa Joe, whose status is still questionable as he recovers from a foot injury.
Presumably, the remaining male talent would participate in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, which was included on the WrestleMania pre-show last year.
But again, this is all speculation until WWE officially confirms the matches leading up to the event.
