New Orleans is the host city for WrestleMania this year with the Mercedes-Benz Superdome the stadium being used by the WWE.

WrestleMania XXX also took place in the same building as Daniel Bryan completed his fairytale journey to the WWE Championship, winning two matches on the night.

Starsport now takes you through all the confirmed matches for WrestleMania 34 announced as of Tuesday, March 13.

Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns – Universal Championship

Roman Reigns won the men’s Elimination Chamber Match to earn a shot at Brock Lesnar.

The two previously fought in the main event of WrestleMania 31 but Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to prevent us from finding out who would have won.

This year though we are set to find out who is truly the better man of the two with the Universal Title at stake.

Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle vs  Stephanie McMahon and Triple H

UFC legend Ronda Rousey made her WWE debut at the Royal Rumble but it was at the Elimination Chamber event that things got really interesting.

Rousey would put Triple H through a table and immediately make an enemy of The Game and his wife, Stephanie McMahon.

Kurt Angle would stand by Rousey’s side and a Mixed Tag Team match has been announced for WrestleMania as a result.

AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura – WWE Championship

WWE Champion AJ Styles is scheduled to face Royal Rumble winner Shinsuke Nakamura in what many people see as the ultimate dream match.

Styles had to win a Six-Pack Challenge at WWE Fastlane against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin and John Cena to ensure the match went ahead in New Orleans.

Nakamura warmed up for his title match by defeating Rusev at Fastlane in a terrific contest.

Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair – SmackDown Women’s Championship

Asuka had the right to pick her WrestleMania match after winning the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match back in January.

The Empress of Tomorrow has never been beaten in her WWE career, a staggering two-and-a-half years to date.

Asuka appeared at WWE Fastlane after Charlotte Flair defeated Ruby Riott and made it clear she wanted the daughter of the Nature Boy on April 8.

The Miz vs Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins – Intercontinental Championship

The Miz demanded to know his opponent for WrestleMania but he got more than he bargained for from RAW General Manager Kurt Angle.

The Intercontinental Champion will face both Finn Balor and Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat match on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

It means he doesn’t have to be pinned or submitted to lose his beloved title.

Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Final

A new Cruiserweight Champion will be crowned at WrestleMania 34 after Enzo Amore vacated the belt following his departure from the company.

A 16-man tournament has been held ever since and we are now at the semi-final stage as we get ever closer to WrestleMania.

The final match at WrestleMania will be Cedric Alexander or Roderick Strong vs Mustafa Ali or Drew Gulak.

The first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal

WWE have announced women not involved in the title matches at WrestleMania will have the chance to compete in the first-ever Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal.

Similar to the Andre the Giant version for the men this gives the female athletes a spot on the card and could tell us who the WWE sees as their top prospects in the division.

Check back here as WrestleMania 34 matches are added over the coming weeks leading up to the event in New Orleans.
