Off The Top Rope: Our Wrestlemania XXX Predictions!

wrestlemania-xxx-hulk-hogan_3095129

It’s the biggest night of the year for wrestling fans — WRESTLEMANIA! This year marks the highly anticipated 30th anniversary of the legendary event. There are several intriguing matches on this year’s card. While I still long for the days of the earlier ‘Mania cards where there were numerous meaningful matches, this card has shaped up rather nicely. Many of these matches could go either way, so it is with great care that I’ve made these predictions. Here goes:

1. Tag Team Championship: The Usos (champions) vs. The Real Americans vs. Los Matadores vs. Curtis Axel and Ryback

Prediction: The Usos retain the titles

I’d like to see the Usos trade the titles back and forth with a different team, but this isn’t the night for the “trading” to begin. Neither Los Matadores or “Rybaxel” are ready for title runs, and I think Cesaro is ready for a stroing singles run. The Usos are running hot right now to they’ll retain.

2. Diva Championship Invitational

Prediction: AJ Lee

There are so many divas in this match that I won’t list them all here. Natalya is the only one I could see taking the title from AJ, but I have a gut feeling that this isn’t Nattie’s night. AJ, like the Usos, is running strong and will retain.

3. Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Prediction: Big Show

I know Big Show is the obvious prediction here, but he hasn’t had a lot of spotlight as of late, and this could be another jumping off point to another strong singles run. Big E would be a worthy winner, but since he holds the Intercontinental Belt, he doesn’t need to win this match.

4. The Shield vs. Kane and the New Age Outlaws

Prediction: Kane and the New Age Outlaws

I LOVE the Shield, but I think the time has come for Ambrose and Rollins to split with Roman Reigns, so Kane and the Outlaws will pull out a victory here. I think The Shield will have the match in hand before Reigns gets turned on by his partners, allowing Kane and the Outlaws to win.

5. John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

Prediction: John Cena

I really want to see the talented Wyatt win this, but he hasn’t been around long enough to deserve this shot. It will be a great fight (emphasis on fight), and Cena will show his more aggressive side en route to the victory.

6. The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Prediction: The Undertaker

Easiest pick of the card. Undertaker’s streak will never be broken, although Lesnar will come very close. This will possibly be ‘Taker’s most violent Wrestlemania match yet, and his powerful aggression will shine through in his victory.

7. Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H

Prediction: Daniel Bryan

I think this match will either be the first or second of the night, as one of the men will have to go on twice. This will also be a fight, one that will likely go outside of the ring rather a lot. Daniel Bryan will get a clean win over his adversary, and will have to overcome a lot of interference in the process. Therefore, Daniel Bryan will get added to the title match with Randy Orton and Batista.

8. WWE Championship Match-Triple Threat

Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Daniel Bryan (added to match via victory over Triple H earlier in the card)

Prediction: Daniel Bryan wins the title

I also think there will be plenty of outside interference in this one, with all three men getting their turn to shine over the others. There will be plenty of fighting, but also scientific wrestling. Daniel Bryan will get his well-deserved win and will get his share of the spotlight.

Bonus Predictions:

1. Wrestlemania I Main Event Showdown: I predict Hulk Hogan and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper will have a “staredown” in the ring, paying homage to the first ever Wrestlemania main event. It is also possible that their tag partners from that match, Mr. T and “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff will show up, as might their corner men, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka and “Cowboy” Bob Orton.

2. CM Punk returns: After Daniel Bryan wins and is rejoicing with the crown and chanting “YES! YES! YES!”, CM Punk will return to the WWE, attacking Bryan and setting up a fantastic main event feud.
