Welcome everyone to my predictions of Wrestlemania 33, dubbed “The Ultimate Thrill Ride”.
This Wrestlemania should be a lot more interesting than last year’s Mania as that was a disaster (Especially that Roman vs HHH match. If you want to read my predictions for last year’s Wrestlemania, click here! ( Part 1 | Part 2 )
Just as a note, all but ONE title is on the line. The SmackDown Tag Team Championship is not on the line at Wrestlemania. I feel bad for The Usos who just became Tag Champs not getting a Wrestlemania match. It sounds like that The Usos are going to be in the AtGMBR. Disappointing.
And here we go:
Seth Rollins, Undertaker, Miz & Maryse, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, Neville, Kevin Owens, Enzo & Cass, Bayley, Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Naomi, Randy Orton to win all their matches.
(C) = Current Champion | BOLD = WINNER
- Seth Rollins vs Triple H in a Unsanctioned Match
PREDICTION: Well, we could have seen this match come from a mile away. This has been in the making since November of 2015, but now has got to the point where this is now a “Dream Match” and should be a very good one.
Seth Rollins to win
- The Undertaker vs Roman Reigns
PREDICTION: Are you booing yet? No? Well you should. Simply put, to get Roman over with the crowd, WWE needs to either turn on Taker or simply win. WWE will see this as a good thing but everyone will hate it.
But at the same time, if Roman DOES win, It will mean the 2 in 23-2 in the Undertaker’s streak…Not that it really matters anymore.
Undertaker to win but with a mad outlash from Reigns afterwards.
- John Cena & Nikki Bella vs The Miz & Maryse
PREDICTION: The promos for this fued has been fantasic and I cannot wait for this match. Miz is a really good heel right now and John Cena can match that pretty damn well.
This will also see Maryse actually compete since 2011! Good to see her back in the ring. I would like to see her back for good and fill up the SmackDown Women’s Division after mania and perhaps go after the title! The Miz & Maryse to win.
- Shane McMahon vs AJ Styles
PREDICTION: We know that AJ is going to whoop Shane’s ass. While Shane was very good in the ring last year with The Undertaker, I am not sure if he is ready to take on a person like AJ. He should have chosen a slower opponent…like James Ellsworth :P
AJ Styles to win, but I would be surprised if Shane does go over which will look bad for AJ.
- Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal (Kickoff Show)
PREDICTON: We only know of a few people and I have to agree with some people regarding who is going to win this and that is Braun Strowman. There is no one else that can win this. Good luck to him!
- Neville (C) vs Austin Aries for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. (Kickoff show)
PREDICTION: This is a shame…a dire shame. The CW match is on the pre-show of the biggest PPV of the year. This is terrible booking decision by WWE. Just shows how much they care about this.
This is a REALLY good fued that they have going on and with Neville being a heel, it is really really realllly good right now and should be a great match, but very bad booking decision from WWE.
Neville to retain
- Chris Jericho (C) vs Kevin Owens for the WWE United States Championship
PREDICTION: This should be a good match considering the calibre of both of these guys. I would love to see this match drawn out for a good solid 20 – 25 mins!
Kevin Owens to become champion
- Gallows & Anderson (C) vs Enzo & Cass vs Cesaro & Sheamus in a Triple Threat Ladder Match for the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships
PREDICTION: Gallows and Anderson are really good right now, but considering that this is a ladder match, it makes things unpredictable…but this is a predictions post…soooooooo
Enzo & Cass to win (Extra point if Enzo get the belts himself)
- Bayley (C) vs Charlotte Flair vs Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship
PREDICTION: Is anyone else ready for another edition of “Hot Potato” with the RAW Womens Championship, because I sure am NOT PUTTING UP WITH IT ANYMORE! Please keep the belt on ONE person for a long time and for that, I want Bayley to retain.
- Goldberg (C) vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship
PREDICTION: Well this match will last all of 5 mins and if this is the last match on the card, I will be very disappointed…This needs to be put in the middle to not be a predictable mess during the show. While the two of them are very good, I cannot see Goldberg being around for much longer, so I would like to see Brock Lesnar to become the new Universal Champion.
- Dean Ambrose (C) vs Baron Corbin for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
PREDICTION: After the two of them trying to kill each other multiple times on SmackDown LIVE, this should have been an Extreme Rules or perhaps another “Asylum Match” shudder. This needed a stipulation but it looks like we are not going to get one!
Dean Ambrose to retain
- Alexa Bliss (C) vs Natalya vs Becky Lynch vs Carmella vs Mickie James vs Naomi for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship (Kickoff show)
PREDICTION: Well, Naomi returned to SmackDown LIVE this week to enter herself in as she is now back from injury. Good to see her back and filling up this match with more than just the same 3 faces.
Becky Lynch was going to be my prediction, but now that Naomi is back, it is time to get the belt of Alexa. Naomi to become Champ
- Bray Wyatt (C) vs Randy Orton for the WWE Championship
PREDICTION: This should be a great great great match! I love both of these wrestlers and both are very deserving of the title! Randy though hasn’t had a singles title in nearly 3 years so it would be very nice for him to have a belt back on him.
Bray has the potential to retain and I will be happy for either to retain.
This is a very hard prediction to call, but I have to go with:
Randy Orton to become champion
And that is the predictions. A few things to note:
1) I am very dissapointed with WWE’s booking decisions. The SD Womens and Crusierweight matches being on the pre-show is a terrible decision!
These are very high calibre matches and should have not been taking lightly. It is very easy to see the interest that Vince has in the company and who is REALLY running the shows.
I might have a post out by the end of the week for NXT Orlando as that has a couple of good matches (Shinsuke Nakamura vs Bobby Roode for the NXT Championship).
