WrestleMania 34 is now just over four weeks away, but WWE still haven't decided which of the show's biggest matches will act as the main event.

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar's Universal Title bout was long thought to be the leading candidate, but according to Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, their clash could be surpassed by Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Meltzer writes that the mixed tag match will be the most heavily pushed thing on the show, and that "it feels like the main event." He adds that the precise card order probably won't be decided for another few weeks, but while the show was built around Lesnar vs. Reigns for close to a year, Rousey's arrival has changed the game.

Brock's future may have something to do with this. Meltzer notes that the general feeling is that Lesnar will leave after 'Mania, and that WWE are trying to paint him as a villain so that fans celebrate his departure. Whatever the case, given that Rousey is likely considered the company's biggest mainstream star, her match closing WrestleMania 34 does make business sense.
