WrestleMania 34 is on track to bring big business and audiences.

Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Braun Strowman and a mystery partner: It's a shame Strowman isn't in a high-profile singles match on WWE's biggest show, but I have no doubt that he will leave WrestleMania as one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions.

This Sunday night, the center of the wrestling world will be the banks of the Mississippi River, as WrestleMania 34 descends on New Orleans. While Styles has developed quite the fan base during his time in WWE, Nakamura has ascended the WWE ladder in quick succession, earning this main event match by winning the Men's Royal Rumble.

It seems that there's a good chance it's going to get even better, because PWInsider is reporting that The Undertaker has been spotted in New Orleans, so it seems that he will indeed be making some sort of appearance at WrestleMania.

There's going to be a lot packed into the three-hour show so let's get down to the live results for Monday Night RAW on April 2. This match could really go either way.

How he does that is a different matter altogether; but the build up to this dream match - if it was Wrestlemania 30 - has been phenomenal. That being said, I think that's where they're going. His matches with Benoit and Guerrero in the early and mid 2000s are the gold standard for me, and his frenemy feud with Brock Lesnar basically defined the early SmackDown era of the first brand split. I also could see someone returning from injury - Big Cass or Samoa Joe, for instance - prevailing. During their time with New Japan Pro Wrestling they put on an instant classic. The Usos, who have reinvented themselves into one of the most entertaining Tag Teams in WWE, will win the crowded match and continue to shine on Smackdown.

It's a title he is very familiar with and one he has actually held twice before.

Despite rumours that this year's Andre the Giant Battle Royal would be taken more seriously by the company, the match still finds itself sat on the kick-off with very little big-name talent involved. The victory will be of no benefit to the victor, as the fact that the two previous winners are competing in it again highlights.

That was the last time we saw Undertaker on television, and it didn't make any sense.

In my opinion, this match is the best option for a hot opener. This would be a great match to show to someone who has never seen WWE before, just for the reactions. Rousey will surely take the fight to Stephanie, a surefire way to get WWE fans fully behind the former UFC champion. That leaves Balor as the obvious choice for the victor here, and a strong run with the Inter belt will do him the world of good. Where WWE packs its show with matches no one is interested in, the NXT offers a trim, tight affair - and one that's fun from top to bottom. Rusev is super over right now, and the company placing him on the card is a clear acknowledgement of that. Jinder Mahal is looking to get a belt back.

It may seem that only one man has any real chance of winning this match, given the fact that Lesnar's WWE contract is set to expire and he seems intent on returning to the octagon once again - but I can't help thinking that what will likely be the main event of the evening will nearly certainly end in chaos, one way or another. The New Day vs. Bliss already had her crowning moment at the Elimination Chamber, and it is imperative that Nia wins, especially since this would be a sweet moment for her. Jax has yet to win a Women's Title despite being billed as incredibly dominant, so taking the title at 'Mania off of a bully would be ideal. I'm going to stick with booking trends with this one and give it to the Bludgeons.
