Viewership For This Week's WWE Raw

Share

The sports entertainment leader is going all out this year with the ladies taking center stage.

The Rock reportedly won't take part in WrestleMania 34 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday after discussions about a potential musical segment with WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Jarrett and current WWE Superstar Elias was scrapped. It all begins at 5:00 PM EST with the WrestleMania Kickoff pre-show, with WrestleMania proper starting at 7:00 PM ET.

To sum up telegraph booking, it's when the creative team pretty much gives away the result of an upcoming pay-per-view match by booking the losing side super-strong on the go-home episode.

The kickoff show will feature three massive matches. After The Rock appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and made some.interesting threats regarding anal hygiene towards his former WWE rival (who is also his real-life pal) - Cena responded when he was on the show the following night. The annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal will be on the kickoff show, as will the inaugural WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal. Among them are odds for the Cruiserweight Championship match where they have Cedric Alexander as a 1 to 3 favorite against Mustafa Ali (2/1) to win the vacated title.

This is a match that takes place at WrestleMania every year. One of the biggest questions going into WrestleMania 34 is whether or not The Undertaker will answer John Cena's challenge.

Whatever WrestleMania installment you attend, it isn't guaranteed to be one of the greatest of all-time, but the memories you'll create will last a lifetime. And while Rock was cornered by the Wyatt Family at WrestleMania 32, Cena (who was off television with a shoulder injury), came to the aid of his old rival, and they successfully fought off the culprits.

For months, there have been rumors that it would be John Cena vs. The fun tonight should involve Daniel Bryan, Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

We all know Rousey can get it done in the octagon, but WrestleMania 34 will be her in-ring WWE debut. This went on for weeks and we never saw him.

Asuka (-350) is the favorite to upend Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's title, while Nia Jax (-250) is expected to beat the Raw Women's champion Alexa Bliss.

See the full list of the card below.

The WWE and Universal Championship matches are two of the most important contests on the card, and WWE will make sure both bouts live up to the hype. Standing once again in the ring, Kurt Angle, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Ronda Rousey's war of words quickly escalated beyond trash talking and towards the realm of the physical as the Game clobbered Angle in the back of the head with his microphone.
