On Sunday, April 8, WWE's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, will come to a screen near you.
- The "Woken One" Matt Hardy revealed that he was filming for a future "Table For 3" episode which airs on the WWE Network.
WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura: Two years ago, Nakamura successfully defended his IWGP Intercontinental Title against Styles in an outstanding match on New Japan Pro-Wrestling's big Wrestle Kingdom 10 show at the Tokyo Dome.
Both of these payments combined means that Wrestlemania has earned a reputation as the biggest payday of the year and with both Battle Royals missing out on that payday they could upset up to 60 members of the roster.
So let's get through the question that everyone is probably asking right now; Is the match going to take place? Overall, WWE said its content generated 20 billion video views in 2017 - up 32% year over year - while social-media engagements rose 4%, to 1.2 billion.
WrestleMania 34 will also feature Cedric Alexander vs. Mustafa Ali for the Cruiserweight Championship, the annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the first-ever WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal. She will likely win this title and that will give WWE some fresh rivalries on Smackdown, especially if there is another Superstar Shakeup.
There's added intrigue, because since joining WWE, Asuka is undefeated.

- Prior to inducting Goldberg into the 2018 WWE Hall Of Fame, the advocate for the current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman re-watched and commentated over Goldberg's dominant win over his client at the 2016 "Survivor Series" PPV. Will Asuka's streak finally end at the hands of SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair? But for me personally, I've had so many big matches.

Analysis: During the go-home show there were hints that we might get a surprise at WrestleMania. It was believed that the Undertaker would show up at least once before the WrestleMania.
Now, there is a world where part-timers and regulars can coexist, but it's not the one that WWE has created.
A flawless wrinkle in the Sasha Banks/Bayley story would be for one to eliminate the other for a Battle Royal win.
"The last word we got, which was on April 3, is that from Vince McMahon's standpoint, the belief is that the audience knows he's going to show up and this is the "story" that brings him back to 'kick Cena's ass'". The other options aren't much better: The company may also go with the Undertaker taking on Cena, while a dark-horse possibility is that Triple H and his wife, Stephanie McMahon, will tangle with Raw general manager Kurt Angle and former UFC star Ronda Rousey.
I know a lot of people aren't decided on whether they should like or hate Ronda Rousey. Why have Stephanie McMahon say anything anymore, for that matter. It will begin with the kickoff show at 4:30 PM ET.
