Wrestlemania 32 Predictions
Kickoff Pre-Show Matches
Each year WWE figures out a way to get all the Divas on the Wrestlemania card and this year is no different. Natalya, Paige, Alicia Fox, Brie Bella and Eva Marie vs. Lana, Tamina Snuka, Naomi, Emma and Summer Rae will probably be a quick scramble of a match with an outcome that will more than likely play out on E! with Total Divas than in the ring on RAW and/or Smackdown. I see Total Divas going over with either Brie or Eva Marie getting the pinfall or submission.
Winner: Total Divas
After The Dudley's nostalgia tour wore didn't net Bubba Ray and D-von a record breaking 10th tag team title run they turned on the fans and took it out on The Usos. Last year at Wrestlemania The Usos lost in a Fatal 4-Way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship, this year The Usos will get a victory and get back on track to regain the WWE Tag Team Championship this year.
Winner: The Usos
Let's be honest, Ryback is better as a "monster heel" leaving a path of pain and destruction in his path. Meanwhile WWE is breding Kalisto as the next Rey Mysterio after both Sin Cara's have failed. Kalisto's run with the United States Championship continues past Wrestlemania 32.
Winner: Kalisto Retains
The Main Card
With this being Third Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, WWE has to make winning this match mean something. Previous winner Cesaro had a horrible heel turn, while last year's winner Big Show continued to turn more than a bad night of sleep. With a considerable smaller battle royal participant list (20 down from 31 and 30 in previous years) this should give viewers more of a focused storyline. So far the announced participants are The Social Outcasts, Kane, Big Show and Tyler Breeze confirmed but based on the RAW angle last night, it looks like other participants include Damien Sandow, Goldust, R-Truth, Darren Young, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, Fandango, Konnor and Viktor. Leaving four spots unclaimed. Rumors have stated that Tyler Breeze is in the doghouse, but I think the WWE still has hopes for "The Gorgeous One" and winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle will be a great start to a bright year for Breeze.
Winner: Tyler Breeze
AJ Styles debut at this year's Royal Rumble and it still feels like we're in the honeymoon period. Though his feud with Jericho has taken up the majority of his time in WWE there have been three distinct storylines. From a feud about mutual respect, to a short lived tag team to Chris' jealousy getting the best of him. AJ Styles has shined on the big stage and he won't go dim at his first Wrestlemania.
Winner: AJ Styles
The last time the Intercontinental Championship was defended in a singles match on the main card at a Wrestlemania was WM28 when Big Show defeated Cody Rhodes. Another tidbit, Dolph Ziggler has never had a singles match at Wrestlemania. When it comes to this match, this will just be another chapter in the Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn feud that began in Ring of Honor. Kevin will win this battle, but this war is far from over.
Winner: Kevin Owens Retains
The New Day are good guys now who get to induct The Freebirds into the WWE Hall of Fame, and The League of Nations are just a generic foreign faction who probably won't make it to Summer Slam. The New Day are on a roll and this babyface thing is just getting started.
Winner: The New Day
Dean Ambrose has gotten help from hard core legends, (Mick Foley's barbwire bat, and Terry Funk's chainsaw) who happen to be as crazy as the lunatic fringe, to take down the beast incarnate (great job WWE you got me to use your dumb nicknames). But it will be all for not. Brock will take everything including the kitchen sink and will still be standing tall when the final bell rings.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
When this match was first announced I pegged Charlotte to continue her reign. She has found a great flow with her father Ric Flair as genetic perfection (R.I.P. Axelmania) . But when "news" surfaced that WWE is about to scrap the Divas title in favor of a Women's Championship, my mind changed. It wouldn't make sense for the current champion to introduce a new belt, so "The Boss" Sasha Banks will be the new Divas champ.
Winner: Sasha Banks
The night Shane returned has to be arguably the best thing to happen during the Road to Wrestlemania. But the weeks after have been hit and miss. Why would The Undertaker do Vince's bidding, why would Shane just agree to wrestle anyone or wrestle period? This is the WWE and you're not suppose to think too much about the plot. With that said Shane can take over the company with a victory meanwhile if Taker loses he can never wrestle at Wrestlemania again. My dream scenario would be Sting interfering in this match helping Shane and in turn setting up a match between himself and Taker at Summer Slam. I mean its been 25 years since Shane "bought" WCW from up under Vince's nose. Plus WWE has had bud guys in charge for way too long, but with that said i don't know if I can see Taker losing twice at WM. I'm probably gonna regret this but...
Winner: Shane McMahon
When it comes to Wrestlemania Triple H is undefeated when going in as the WWE champ, he is in the best shape of his life and is arguably more over now than he has ever been in his 20+ year career. That's more than likely thanks Roman Reigns not having a defined character, lack of mic skills, and a moveset that makes John Cena look like Dean Malenko. Being in back to back Wrestlemanias for a chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is no small feat, and Roman won't have to worry about someone cashing in Money in the Bank. At this point WWE has to see what they have with Roman Reigns. Give him time as a champ, if it doesn't work then switch him to heel, so Seth Rollins can return as a babyface to reclaim what is rightfully his.
Winner: Roman Reigns New WWE Champ
