WrestleMania 34 ‘match of the night’ predictions

WrestleMania 34 is just three days away, and the Fourth Wall Wrestling podcast has released its show with a full preview and predictions for each match.

And at the end of the program, Zach and I discuss what we feel will be the event’s “match of the night.

Here’s that discussion:

Zach: “It’s tough. There are a lot of possibilities—I would say there are about five matches, that if it ends up being the match of the night, I won’t be surprised. I think the likeliest scenario is AJ-Shinsuke, because we know with their ceiling is, they’ve worked together before, people love both of them already, their entrances are going to be fantastic. I think that’s the likeliest scenario, but you could talk to me into Alexa-Nia, you could talk me into Asuka-Charlotte, heck you could even talk to me into, I don’t know, Daniel Bryan’s match honestly.”

Pete: “What is your pick?”

Zach: “AJ-Shinsuke.”

Pete: “I think that’s the obvious pick and I can tend to agree with you. I think a lot of people are going to forget about the first Cruiserweight match. I expect that to actually be really good. I remember Austin Aries had a really great match.”

Zach: “That match was amazing last year.”

Pete: “I’m going to go with a little bit of a dark horse because I think I really like the storytelling that all three of these guys will be able to do. The Miz is really the one guy who is not as talented as the other two, but then I think back to how he won the Intercontinental Title back, where he took off the turnbuckle. Super-good storytelling, and there are things that are smart that the Miz can do in that match to keep up with the other two for what they can do technically. And I just like the combination and I don’t think these three wrestlers are going to go in without a plan. Not to say anybody’s going to go in without a plan, but I think they’re going to really want to go for that. I just think these three guys—they say, ‘OK. This is our moment, we’re going to go for it.’ So that’s my dark horse.”

Zach: “They complement each other, and Seth’s hot right now.”

Pete: “Slingblade to the slingblade to the slingblade to the skull-crushing finale.”
