Normally I publish my predictions on the Saturday before the PPV, but I was conflicted about the main event. However, as of now, I’m fully confident about my picks. Feel free to comment, and give me your feedback.
Kalisto vs Alberto Del Rio
While this match may be good, I can’t say I’ll be rushing to watch it on the preshow. The WWE has completely killed this feud. With that being said, I expect Kalisto to be pinned first, then pinning Del Rio twice.
Charlotte vs Brie Bella
Within one week, I’ve enjoyed the build up to this feud. With rumours about Bella’s retirement circulating around the wrestling world, it makes me wonder if they’ll let her win this match. I hope they don’t compromise their plans for Charlotte just to have a “feel good” story for Brie. This match should be a stepping stone for the champ to make her look good before Mania.
Ryback, Kane, & Big Show vs The Wyatt Family
I definitely see the Big Show in a different way after his interview with Austin. Hopefully he gets a decent spot in what has been a terribly booked feud. If the Wyatts are scheduled to have a program with Lesnar, they need this win.
Winner: The Wyatt Family
Naomi & Tamina vs Becky Lynch & Sasha Banks
There’s only one way to go for this contest. Becky and Sasha will emerge victorious, as they’re most likely setup for the title match at Mania. It’s essential they look strong. I’m fully expecting Banks to turn on Lynch after the match.
Winner: Becky Lynch & Sasha Banks
Kevin Owens vs Dolph Ziggler
One would believe this is where Owens finally goes over, but I’m not fully convinced of that. The WWE hasn’t been scared to make Ziggler go over Owens clean. Plus, they love playing hot potato with secondary titles. Even with that knowledge, I’ll still lean towards KO.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Chris Jericho vs AJ Styles
I’m in firm belief that this match will steal the show tonight. We know they have chemistry, but even then I feel like held back on their previous matches. It’s fair to say they have big plans for AJ heading into Mania, so I can’t see Y2J going over .The only way this doesn’t steal the show is if the Miz interferes.
Winner: AJ Styles
The New Day on the Cutting Edge Peep Show
Here’s my bold prediction for night. Since the New Day is in need for new opponents, I predict that we’ll see Enzo Amore & Big Cass emerge as the new contenders.
Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose
The mark in me really wants Dean Ambrose to win. Perhaps he will, and we’ll be given another Wrestlemania miracle run. On the other hand, the analyst in me says Reigns will win. If they go with Reigns, why did they invest all this time into Ambrose? It can be argued that the Lunatic Fringe is the most over wrestler going into this .I’m 100% convinced Brock doesn’t win, because the Wyatts will cost him the match.
Winner: Roman Reigns
