Figure Four Weekly: Looking ahead to Wrestlemania 34

Though there will always be some complications when putting a big show together, things have pretty much fallen perfectly into place for WWE heading into WrestleMania 34 on Sunday.

The 14-match card was scheduled to be finalized heading into this week's television, with John Cena vs. The Undertaker left as the last thing to be confirmed. In a different era, it would have been insane to not announce such a big match before the go-home episode of Raw. But selling WWE Network subscriptions is a bit different than pay-per-views, and the match almost feels unnecessary on such a loaded event.

The show is scheduled to be at least seven hours long, with a two-hour pre-show and a five-hour main card.

Nearly half of the matches on WrestleMania 34 could headline any other PPV. Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, Ronda Rousey & Kurt Angle vs. Stephanie McMahon & Triple H, Cena vs. Undertaker, Daniel Bryan & Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, and Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka are all main-event level matches.
