It's Mania Time!! The Smarks present SmarkMania 2 as our festivities to predict/reveal/speculate/rumour-monger/talk shit/mark out about this weekend in New Orleans as WrestleMania 34 and NXT TakeOver New Orleans are the top events in a spectacle packed WrestleMania week.

The build for WM 34 has been well executed and interesting. No less than 13 matches (14 if Undertaker shows up?) putting every belt on the line, a consequence of being banished from SmackDown Live and one of the most highly anticipated premiere matches in WWE history. The 4 main singles belts for RAW and SmackDown Live are traditional one on one matches, but that's where the easy stuff ends. The Intercontinental belt match is a Triple Threat. As is the SmackDown Live tag belt match. The RAW tag belts match involves an unknown contestant. The United States belt match is a Fatal 4-Way match. The feud between SmackDown Live management and The Yep! Movement should get some finality as Daniel Bryan returns to in-ring action. A new Cruiserweight champion will be determined. Carmella still lurks with the MITB contract. And Rowdy Ronda makes her match debut against The Authority. Will John Cena get his wish? It's gonna be a long Sunday of rasslin'.

NXT TakeOver is a much shorter event but nonetheless has huge matches for the brand. The Mens and Womens Championships are one on one, but things change past those two. The first North American champion will be crowned after a 6-Man Ladder Match. After some shenanigans on the go-home show, the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winner and the Tag Team championship winner will be the same after a Triple Threat decides it. There will be a new storyline after Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa finally end their feud and one of them moves on.

Will we be able to cover this all in two hours? No fu**ing idea, but we're gonna give it a shot. Tune in, dammit.
