It’s the biggest night of the year for wrestling fans — WRESTLEMANIA! This year marks the highly anticipated 32nd anniversary of the legendary event. Wrestling’s biggest night will take place on Sunday, April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Dallas, and broadcast live around the world on WWE Network.
There are several intriguing matches on this year’s card. While we 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 our top talents have made thrown caution to the wind and made these predictions.

INITIAL THOUGHTS ON THIS YEAR’S BIG EVENT
The Heartbreak Duke: This year’s Wrestlemania is shaping up to be a great event. I must admit, I was skeptical as Wrestlemania neared. Without stars such as Cesaro, Cena, Rollins and Orton, would the WWE be able to put together a strong card? This year, that answer is YES! YES! YES!
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Can you smell it in the air? Wrestlemania is upon us! The blood, sweat and, most likely, tears will flow Sunday as the superstars who are NOT INJURED compete for their Wrestlemania moment! Of course, I’m kidding. This Sunday’s Wrestlemania card may seem lackluster at first glance. Look a bit deeper and you’ll see the matches are interesting and, dare I say, unpredictable in a certain manner. Many fans are complaining about the lack of build and excitement for Sunday’s event. I must remind those fans of the lack of build we had last year and the phenomenal Mania that took place. So, strap in kiddies because it’s time for Wrestlemania 32 predictions … it’s gonna be bumpy!
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: This week the WWE circus has taken over Dallas in preparation for Sunday’s big live event. If anything, the WWE has proven time and time again for at least one weekend, the Sports Entertainment world has no choice but to step aside and watch as the WWE Superstars climb a 20ft ladder of supremacy. Will they reach the gold or come crashing down through a pile of well-stacked tables outside the ring?
Total Divas (Brie Bella, Natalya, Alicia Fox, Paige and Eva Marie) vs. B.A.D and Blonde (Tamina, Naomi, Summer Rae, Emma and Lana)
The Heartbreak Duke: I’m not into this match but appreciate that these women are getting onto the card in some way. I’m interested to see Lana’s ability in the ring. Not many B.A.D members and Blonde have had any success as of late, and with the name recognition of Total Divas, I’ll go with the Total Divas on this one.
Winner: Total Divas
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: This past Monday night we saw Paige taking on Emma. It was cool seeing Emma back on Raw and picking up the victory. After the match the divas, except for Lana, brawled in the middle of the ring. Who was gonna be the final member of Team Total Divas to take on Team B.A.D and Blonde?! Eva Marie! And the crowd goes … mild? Yes, Eva Marie comes out awkwardly to boos and even a few cold shoulders from her teammates. That brings us to this Sunday. I have to go with Team Total Divas for the fact Brie is supposedly making her last appearance on Monday night. Also we’re still not done playing off the feel good Daniel Bryan retirement. It only makes sense to have the Total Divas win but please don’t have Emma or Lana take the fall. They’ll be dead in the water at that point, if they’re not already. I’m also calling a “heel turn” by Eva Marie. I put that in quotes because no one enjoys her to begin with … sorry?
Winner: Total Divas
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: The stars of Total Divas are set to take on a newly formed stable. Team Total Divas feat. Brie Bella, Natalya, Paige, Alicia Fox, and, fresh from her recent stint at NXT, Eva Marie are set to take on Team B.A.D. and Blonde feat. Tamina, Naomi, Summer Rae, Lana, and another diva back from NXT, Emma. Emma is a household favorite around these parts, but rumor on the street is Brie Bella is set to retire Monday night and I see this as a way for her to go out on top. On the other hand, Team B.A.D. and Blonde’s have been on a slide. A pre-show match with nothing of note at stake is the type of match where heels thrive. I think I just talked myself into an upset.
Winner: Team B.A.D. And Blonde
The Usos vs the Dudley Boyz
The Heartbreak Duke: This match should’ve been on the regular card. On television in recent weeks, it has been played out with intrigue, and it should be a competitive match. Both teams are talented, and it is nice to see them work well together. Can experience overcome youth? As much as I’d like to see the Dudley’s defeat Rikishi’s boys, it won’t be so, and the Usos will be back on track to, hopefully, achieve a tag title soon.
Winner: The Usos
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Honestly, I forgot this match was taking place until this past Monday night. It should be a good one too. The Dudleys are fantastic heels when given the tools. The Usos are amazing workers that, due to the crowd’s disdain for Roman Reigns, haven’t been getting fair treatment by the audience. I expect a fantastic contest between these two teams and, if it’s booked right, all four men will come out looking strong. With that, I’m going with the Dudley Boyz. I’ve got a feeling they are grooming them to be a top heel tag and they need to remain dominant. If all goes well I hope we see a Bubba Ray (Bully Ray) singles run in WWE. For now though, Dudleys to win this pre show tag!
Winners: The Dudley Boyz
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: Our second contest set for the pre-show is a matchup that left many scratching their heads. Why isn’t this on the main card? The Dudley Boyz vs The Usos has been ramping up for a while with as much heat as you can ask for going into a PPV. The Dudley Boyz heel turn has been a lot of fun to watch while The Usos remain trapped in this sort of mid-tier purgatory as of late. I hope the Usos get back on track soon, but I have a feeling The Dudley’s have one more run in them and this is the stepping stone to move forward.
Winner: The Dudley Boyz
BATTLE ROYAL PREDICTIONS:
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
The Heartbreak Duke: Battle Royals are hard to predict. I am sure of one thing: Big Show won’t win two in a row, and I think he and Kane will take each other out. Bray Wyatt will win this one. Wyatt deserves success and screen time, and perhaps this will be the kickstart he needs. Hopefully WWE Creative wakes up and pushes this guy.
Winner: HBK! (kidding) Bray Wyatt
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Oh my … ummmmm … I don’t know what to say about this match. Half the guys I would book to win are in a ladder match later in the night. Monday we saw, sadly, a preview for the Battle Royal. It was a who’s who of superstars who’ve been booked as jobbers as of late. All I can hope for is we see a fun Social Outcasts spot. Also, the Wyatts haven’t been booked on the main card so I hope for a good showing by the non-injured members. Luke Harper is out with a torn ACL and Bray is having back issues. That leaves Rowan and Strowman. WWE really wants Strowman to be a top level monster. I guess winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal would be a step in that direction. I don’t know. I swear more interesting stuff is coming. For now, Braun Strowman to dominate the Battle Royal
Winner: Braun Strowman
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: The third annual Andre the Giant Battle Royal is a toss up at this point because I’m trying to predict an outcome before all contestants have declared themselves eligible. I do love me some Battle Royals though. Seeing as how the Wyatt Family has been left out of the Main Card this year, I have a feeling they’ll all declare and dominate. It would be nice to see WWE Creative make a course correction for Bray Wyatt after the golden opportunity he had at this year’s Royal Rumble. Five men left. Four willingly step over the top rope.
Winner: Bray Wyatt
MAIN CARD PREDICTIONS:
A.J. Styles vs. Chris Jericho
The Heartbreak Duke: Their work together has been awesome! While their first match left a bit to be desired, it was still good, and their chemistry has only gotten better. Their match at Roadblock was fantastic, and their brief tag team work was great. Jericho’s heel turn left me wanting another match, and that will happen at Wrestlemania 32. On this big stage, Jericho and Styles will go all out, and this could be the match of the night. Styles wins (hopefully with the Styles Clash).
Winner: A.J. Styles
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Now we’re talking! These two have been putting on spectacular matches since the Rumble. Although we’ve seen this match a bunch of times already it will still be an excellent showing of their abilities on Sunday night. I don’t necessarily agree with the build as Styles should’ve never been booked to do the same mocking gimmick heel Jericho has been doing. If we hadn’t seen it multiple times prior I would say this match would steal the show. That being said, this is going to be an amazing match. Jericho is going to put over Styles, no doubt in my mind. Hopefully we see the Styles Clash on the grandest stage of them all!
Winner: AJ Styles
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: This year, WM32 kicks off with a perfect trip to the bathroom. A beer run. Nap. Fluff your pillows and ready yourself for the tired story of A.J. Styles vs Chris Jericho. I couldn’t be less excited for this matchup. I understand I am the outcast here. Everyone is going nuts for these two. Actually, I take it back. I look forward to Jericho calling Styles a “stupid idiot” over and over. Ooo! A drinking game is afoot.
Winner: AJ Styles
Intercontinental Title Match: Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Stardust vs. Sin Cara vs. The Miz
The Heartbreak Duke: This will also be a great match, as will Styles vs. Jericho, and is hard to predict. I’ll start with process of elimination: Ryder, Stardust, Sin Cara, Ziggler and Miz will not win the IC title in this one. That leaves Zayn and Owens. My head says Owens will win because he’s been on the main roster longer as Zayn just came up to RAW. This will be a whirlwind match and fun to watch. I’m picking my winner because I think him winning will promote an entertaining, lengthy feud: Sami Zayn.
Winner: Sami Zayn
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: I applaud WWE for trying to get as many superstars onto the card as they could. They’ve had to work with countless injuries and more changes than I can count. As much as the smark in me wanted to see El Generico (Zayn) taking on Kevin Steen (Owens) at Wrestlemania I understand why they are going with this multi-man match. This match is going to be amazing. These are talented workers who aren’t going to pull any punches and do their best to steal the show. The obvious storyline coming out of this contest is Owens vs Zayn so one of them has to come away with the belt. In most cases, I would say Owens retains as the money is always in the chase for the belt. However, Zayn is also facing Nakamura on Friday night at NXT Takeover: Dallas. They are not going to have Nakamura lose in his first match with the company. That means Zayn is going into this match with a loss. I don’t think WWE is going to have Sami Zayn lose twice in one weekend. So, I’m going with Zayn. This will continue the Owens/Zayn feud and hopefully we get a few callbacks to their previous matches in NXT.
Winner: Sami Zayn
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: The IC Title is up for grabs yet again as seven men will punch each other in the face until one man reaches the belt in the latest edition of Ladder Matches Are A Must For This Belt At WrestleMania. I don’t understand why this wasn’t built on the back of the Zayn/Owens rivalry. A one-on-one match would have been grand. Instead we have The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Stardust, Sin Cara, and Zack Ryder joining the party. I understand after half the roster went down in 2015. I get this is a way to get hard working road dogs on the card. But couldn’t they just as easily get the same amount of work on the worst matchup of the night, Kalisto vs Ryback? That would have pumped up everyone’s interest in that match. “But Kalisto and Ryback are feuding right now, J-Mo.” Yeah. And Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are gathering their friends for tea time?
Honestly, this is the match I’m most hyped for still. No secret Sami Zayn is a household favorite, his music often is used to calm my thrashing toddler. Zayn and Owens have a rich history to draw from. With Owens holding the belt, he can continue to dodge his old friend. If Zayn reaches the title first, then Owens has a reason to go after Zayn. Or Stardust could win and I will cry man juice from my eye portals.
Winner: Sami Zayn
The New Day vs. The League of Nations
The Heartbreak Duke: I am not much of a New Day fan. I am a fan of the League of Nations, but one can’t deny the roll the New Day is on. They are one of the hottest tag teams WWE has seen in a while, and with the League not getting much of a push, I can’t see them winning, although this should be a fun contest, with the upbeat style of the New Day up against the aggressive League of Nations.
Winner: The New Day
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: I’m a simple guy. I wake up every morning and have my big bowl of Booty-Os! I smile every time the New Day comes on the screen. Their promos are fantastic and all three of them are great workers. The League of Nations is beginning to grow on me and I could finally see them as decent heels on Monday night. Del Rio getting into Woods’ face prior to the match is something that stuck with me. This is going to be a great match that leads to a League of Nations beat down. Remember, it’s four on three at this point. As the New Day are getting pummeled ….THE ROCK’S MUSIC HITS! He comes running down and lays out all four League of Nations members and helps New Day pick up the victory. They all had that fantastic promo about a month ago and I can’t think that was for nothing. Shenanigans will distract or knock out the ref which will lead to the Rock helping New Day pick up the victory. NOW THAT’S NOT BOOTY!
Winners: New Day
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: The New Day are about to walk into a lion’s den on Sunday. For the first time ever, the three man tag team champions are about to be outnumbered and outsized. It will not be pretty. If only there were some way the match could be fair. But how? The New Day tried bringing in a fourth once before when they were set to take on The Usos and The Dudley Boyz, the night the Dudley’s turned heel, as a matter of fact. Do you think Mark Henry would be willing to help out if The League of Nations are really taking it to The New Day? No? Perhaps The Godfather since he’ll be in attendance as a newly inducted member of the Hall of Fame? Faarooq? D’Lo Brown frog-splashing into Dallas like a man possessed? Man! If only there were some other former member of The Nation of Domination that was announced.
Winner: The New Day feat. The Rock
Kalisto vs. Ryback for the U.S. Title
The Heartbreak Duke: Kalisto will take this one. This is your typical David vs Goliath contest, which I will have Ryback squashing his diminutive opponent for most of the match. Kalisto’s persistence will pay off in the end with a successful title defense.
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Honestly, this is my bathroom match. Kalisto is a fantastic worker and Ryback has been improving. That being said, I don’t care. Kalisto can do more with the belt than Ryback can so I’m going with Kalisto for the win. Hopefully this is a short feud and we can end it at Mania.
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: Feed me more … nachos. I’ll take two hot dogs. Large Coke. Oh, do you have onion rings? Whoops. Sorry. Figured I’d give you a glimpse of what I’ll be doing during this match. A trip to Pop’s sounds like a good break during this Kalisto v Ryback match. They’re perfectly fine. Just have no desire to watch this forced rivalry.
Bonus Prediction: Ryback Moves Forward in solo work and joins the IC ranks.
Divas Title Match: Becky Lynch vs Charlotte vs Sasha Banks
The Heartbreak Duke: This match will not disappoint! All three women deserve this chance in the spotlight at Wrestlemania 32. I am STOKED for this one. All three are deserving of holding the Divas championship. Actually, it should be renamed the Women’s Championship, but that’s a story for another time. This will be a fast-paced, back and forth match, and I’ve gone back and forth on my prediction. As with my IC title match prediction, I choose this Diva, as I think her winning will enable a wildly entertaining feud to continue.
Winner: Becky Lynch
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: This match will be the greatest women’s wrestling match in Wrestlemania history. These women, who I refuse to call divas, have been busting their ass to put on great matches on the main roster and in NXT. This will be a Wrestlemania moment to remember. I guarantee at the end of this match tears will be shed. Now, since the introduction of the “Divas Revolution” the fans have been crying for a Sasha Banks push. We saw her get cast to the side as Becky and Charlotte have been mainly involved with the title picture. Sasha Banks enters the title picture and the crowd goes crazy. What I want to happen and what I think will happen are two different things. I’m a huge Becky Lynch mark so I want her to go over. That being said, I only see one woman coming out on top here and that’s the Boss, Sasha Banks. Hopefully this leads to a rematch at Payback.
Winner: Sasha Banks
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: Next up is Divas Title action as the li’l Lass Kicker and The Boss look to beat the crap out of some stuck up Flair. Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte are set for a three-way and I’m all sorts of excited. Becky Lynch has been working her tail off as of late and earned the shot at holding the title at the end of this match. I don’t know if it’ll go down like that because there is a certain (lucky) charm to her “Oo, ya know I almost had your arse” promos. Add a lot of Warwick Davis to that quote and you’ll see what I mean. Sasha Banks could easily take the match though. Or Ric Flair could easily ensure Charolette limps away the winner. But I know it’ll be a fun one to watch. And the Lass Kicker is due a break.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar
The Heartbreak Duke: This will be violent, no doubt. Ambrose will be broken at the end of this one, no doubt. Lesnar will lose, no doubt. Yes, I said it. Dean Ambrose might have to be carried out after this one, but all of the “passing of the torch” talk makes me think ol’ Dean will be victorious. Besides, Brock has to lose sometime, doesn’t he? A street fight is Dean’s best chance.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Brutal. That’s one word I can use to describe what we will see between these two men Sunday night. Lesnar dominated since beating Taker two years ago, as he should be. He hasn’t been truly beaten since Summerslam 2012. Whoever finally gets a win on Lesnar will soar to the top of the roster. I believe Dean Ambrose will be the one to defeat the one in 22 and 1. Ambrose is the right guy to topple the Beast. This will not hurt Lesnar, he’s still the brutal ass kicker who will destroy anything in his path. However, it’s time for his “streak” to come to an end. With the street fight stipulation you leave the match open for shenanigans and openings for Ambrose to pick up the victory. This will not be the last time we see Ambrose for the night but we’ll get to that later.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar will be a bloody mess. Isn’t it wonderful? This match has been so hyped up. Mick Foley and Terry Funk have even come to Dean Ambrose with advice and even gifting the Lunatic Fringe cherished items of destruction over the past two weeks. There is no denying The Beast Brock Lesnar is a force to be reckoned with in any type of match, but Dean Ambrose has tunnel vision right now. This match will be special. A smarter fan might go with Brock, but I have a feeling he’ll need some motivation for PAYBACK on May 1st.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Hell in a Cell: Shane McMahon vs The Undertaker
The Heartbreak Duke: I am having a VERY hard time with this one. If Undertaker wins, why was Shane brought back? If Shane loses, what is the purpose for keeping him around after Wrestlemania? On the other hand, if Shane wins, two things will happen: Undertaker will be finished, and Shane will take control of RAW, eventually turning heel. This will be entertaining. Shane will be his usual Daredevil self, and Undertaker will carry the match like the consummate professional he is. I might as well flip a coin on this one. Here goes:
Winner: Shane McMahon
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: It was strange typing that. When this match was first announced, I was excited. Then, I thought about it and was confused. There’s no doubt in my mind this match will be awesome. These two will put on a spectacular show and the cell just adds to all of the bells and whistles that’ll be used to put on a great match. Unlike most, I enjoyed Monday’s table spot. It proved Shane O Mac can still pull off the daring spots he made famous in the past. I have a bad feeling on Sunday night we will see a spot that will rival the Taker/Mankind King of the Ring spot. Neither man needs to do that, especially at their age. I hope both men make it out of this match okay. I see Shane winning. I don’t know how but it doesn’t make sense to continue to dangle that idea of a “new Raw” just to have it squashed. I don’t believe this is Undertaker’s last Mania no matter the finish. They’ll bring him back one way or another.
Winner: Shane McMahon
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: As of right now the HELL IN A CELL is scheduled in the penultimate matchup. Shane-O-Mac goes head-to-head with The Undertaker. The fate of RAW hangs on this matchup, as well as The Undertakers. Shane has proven over the course of the last month he fears nothing, not even the Dead Man. Predicting a winner on this one is as easy as talking to a critic about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I would like to see this match be pushed to the final slot, but more on that in a bit. Also, the one stipulation for the Undertaker is if he loses he’ll be finished as set by Mr. McMahon. Well, if Shane wins he’ll get control of RAW. Couldn’t Shane reinstate The Undertaker Monday night out of some sort of mutual respect? That is if The Dead Man isn’t already planning a retirement. Lets face it folks, time might be up for ‘Taker. He’s been at this a long time. Sometimes you need to hang up the boots. This match might be that show-stopping showcase. But at the hands of Shane McMahon? After all the battles. Years of ass kicking. Shane McMahon? Maybe.
Winner: Shane McMahon
World Title Match: Triple H vs. Roman Reigns
The Heartbreak Duke: Man, I hope my HBK appearance happens during this one! This will be a barn burner. This one has been built up very well over the past few weeks, and it would be disappointing if this match isn’t stellar. It will be physical, with many near falls. One thing is for sure: Triple H will not walk out with the title. Reigns will get his Wrestlemania moment, but only after a heel turn. Yup, I’m calling it here! Vince will screw his son-in-law, helping Roman to victory and making Trips face, in a bold double turn.
Winner: Roman Reigns
The Heartbreak Duke’s Final Thoughts: There you have it! Another year’s predictions in the books! This will be the biggest Wrestlemania ever, and it shouldn’t disappoint. What do you all think? Let me know at iconvsicon.com.
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles: Surprisingly, this is the match I’m most interested in. Roman Reigns will get booed out of the building. At the same time, I see no chance Triple H will leave Wrestlemania with that title. So, here is my prediction with a bit of fantasy booking. This match will be physical and we will finally see some of the emotion from Reigns we saw at the beginning of this feud. After some brutal back and forth, Super Reigns hits Triple H with the Superman Punch and the Spear. He goes over clean. The crowd is pissed! The confetti is falling and Roman has that goofy smirk on his face. He’s still playing that sarcastic babyface everyone hates. Out limps Dean Ambrose and rolls in the ring to celebrate with his friend. He brings the beer they always talked about and the crowd dies down a little because everyone loves Dean. They toast and then Reigns smashes Ambrose in the face with his beer. He lays waste to Dean Ambrose. I’m talking about a 10- to 15-minute beat down. They’ve been lenient with the blood lately so I want to see it here. Ambrose is wearing a crimson mask. Reigns takes his hand, runs it across Ambrose’s face, and wipes the blood on the title and puts it over his shoulder. He walks to the top of the ramp, turns, and smirks. The crowd loses its minds and Wrestlemania goes off the air. One thing has to happen, Reigns needs to leave Mania as a heel. They’ve been pushing babyface Reigns for so long and it’s done nothing. I don’t blame Roman, he’s doing the best he can with what he’s been given. Roman is the kind of guy who should be a silent killer. A heel turn can do a lot for him.
Winner: Roman Reigns
The Phenomenal Dylan Lyles’ Final Thoughts: Wrestlemania 32 will be awesome. Mania is bigger than the card. We will all tune in and enjoy it as it’s our night to be proud wrestling fans. I’m excited for this coming weekend and it kicks off Friday night at NXT Takeover: Dallas! I hope you all have as much fun as I’m going to have!
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison: Last but not least we have Triple H vs Roman Reigns in what is expected to let all the air out of the awesomeness that was ‘Taker and Shane-O-Mac. We all know Roman Reigns is winning this match. Like we all knew he was losing the title to Triple H at the Royal Rumble. So on and so forth. WWE Creative backed the fans into a corner. Personally, I like the cut of Reigns’ jib. I’d like him to roll with the title for a while. But the WWE Universe isn’t going to allow it until he turns heel. So, back to that Hell in a Cell match for a second. Move this match to the 10 slot, bring HIAC up to the finale. Now, after Roman is booed out of the arena, fans have something to focus on. As Shane and Taker battle relentlessly for dominance, suddenly Roman’s music hits. He breaks into the Cell and either a) delivers a spear to Shane and assists Taker or b) delivers a Superman Punch to the Dead Man and pulls Shane on top of Taker for the 1-2-3. I guess there could be another option, too. C) have him partner with Vince to screw Shane.
BOOM! REIGNS IS NOW HEEL!
That is a fantasy. As is scheduled one can assume he’ll turn heel before the night is out, but it won’t take much effort from WWE Creative. I’ve heard rumblings he may turn on Dean Ambrose post match setting up Payback on the road to a huge Summer Slam where I’ll guess Seth Rollins might find himself in the mix setting up a frenemy triple threat?
Winner: Roman Reigns is your new WWE World Champion
Hacksaw Jeremy Morrison’s Final Thoughts: There you have it, folks. One thing is certain, the pros heavily outweigh the cons when it comes to WrestleMania 32. I’ll be watching on the edge of my seat. Hopefully these predictions don’t prove too embarrassing. I hope you all have a wonderful WrestleMania experience, regardless of the outcome.
