The unique thing about WrestleMania 34 this year is that there are a handful of matches which can rightfully main event the highly anticipated pay-per-view.
Based on WWE’s previous booking, Roman Reigns could be in the main event against as he challenges Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Then there’s the WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura while you can also throw the yet-to-be-announced match between John Cena vs. The Undertaker into the mix too.
THE QUEEN VS. THE EMPRESS OF TOMORROW
However, another main event calibre match which could easily steal the show and create history is the SmackDown Women’s Championship match between Charlotte Flair and Asuka.
Asuka has made the jump from Monday Night RAW to the blue brand to challenge The Queen, leaving Kurt Angle to announce that Alexa Bliss will defend the RAW Women’s Championship against Nia Jax.
It’s obvious why this is such a big deal, as Asuka remains unbeaten in WWE and a clash against Charlotte is something fans have been wanting to see for a very long time. In fact, many believe Charlotte could very well be the one who ends the massive streak as she’s clearly her biggest competition.
However, Cageside Seats have now shared a rumour from WrestlingNews.co which suggests that The Empress of Tomorrow could leave New Orleans on April 8 with the SmackDown Women’s Championship with her unbeaten streak intact.
In fact, if the rumour is to be believed then we might not see Asuka lose a match for another year. This is because they’re claiming that WWE has plans to keep Asuka defeated until a match with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey.
Firstly, whenever WWE does decide to end the streak then it does deserve to be on a huge platform like WrestleMania. Secondly, it’s clear that if this rumour is true then it suggests that Rousey could be the one who ends the unbeaten run, especially since there was some tension between the pair when the former UFC star made her debut at the Royal Rumble - which was won by Asuka.
While it can be considered a risk as Rousey is new, it has been claimed that she’s making great progress in the WWE Performance Center. Plus, it gives her enough time to continue improving which means by the time WrestleMania 35 rolls around, she could be ready to put on an excellent match and dethrone Asuka.
How this one sits with the WWE Universe, though, remains to be seen. With plans constantly changing in WWE, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if they decided to end the streak earlier and go down a completely different route either. But the prospect of seeing Rousey standing opposite Asuka with a championship on the line would be incredible.
Asuka deserves to lose to a bona fide star. It just so happens that Rousey is a mainstream star, so this can bring everyone plenty of benefits.
