Cheap Predictions: Pick WrestleMania XXX results and win!

bryanhhh
Can you pick the winners at the year’s biggest wrestling show? Then you might get your choice of wrestler theme closing out next month’s Cheap Popcast. Read on for Dave’s picks and then make yours!

Hey all! If you haven’t heard on Cheap Popcast lately, I’m made a monthly tradition of predicting the results of a pre-determined event! The reader who makes the most correct predictions gets to pick the song that plays at the conclusion of next month’s episode of Cheap Popcast! First, though, a recap of Elimination Chamber’s predictions. I went five-for-seven, but we actually had two predictors notch a perfect card and get all seven. While Itchy Sunburn got every prediction correct, Ampatient was closer in picking the main event’s running time, and thus will have his choice of theme (The Undertaker’s Ministry of Darkness theme) closing out the episode.

Here’s how the prediction contest goes. I’m going to make my picks in this here article, and then open up the replies to you awesome listeners. You will then pick a winner (or if you’re feeling risky a rare draw/double DQ) for each match (don’t worry about getting the finish right, I’m just looking for winners), and then, just in case there’s a tie for correct predictions, pick a running time for the final match listed (the presumed main event) as a tiebreaker.
Due to time constraints, I won’t be counting the pre-show match, but if you want to predict a winner, nobody’s stopping you…

What does the winner get? Well, you can make your mark on the next Cheap Popcast episode by choosing the next show’s closing theme. Pick the wrestler theme and include a YouTube URL to a wrestler’s theme alongside your predictions (including the running time of the final match listed) and I’ll give you a shout-out before throwing to our episode-ender. Let’s kick off the predictions!


DANIEL BRYAN VS TRIPLE H
Daniel Bryan appearing in the main event of WrestleMania XXX is a no brainer, though his path isn’t entirely clear. Does he lose this via nefarious means and get inserted into a four-way dance? Is it a double DQ or count-out? I think they’re just going to go all-out to make this Bryan’s night, so I saw Bryan wins..

ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL
As a battle royal mark and a person who likes seeing new faces get a chance at WrestleMania, I love this match. They’ve been hyping Big Show WAY too much, and the dude has enough Mania memories as is, so I say someone else gets the rub this year. After nearly a year of floundering post MITB cash-in, I think Ziggler starts on a comeback trail and finally gets a Mania memory all his own, so Dolph Ziggler wins.


THE SHIELD VS KANE AND THE NEW AGE OUTLAWS
If there’s gonna be an underperformer on the card, it’s here. As much as The Shield has proven they can perform, they’ve never worked with a trio as underwhelming as Kane and The New Age Outlaws. I say they keep this one short and as sweet as possible with The Shield winning.


JOHN CENA VS BRAY WYATT
John Cena’s first WrestleMania was a decade ago, and he’s had plenty of monumental victories. The losses he’s had have been to established stars like The Rock, so I think he’s due to give someone a real push (not like Miz’s flukey victory a few years back). The Wyatts have been on fire this year, and I think they keep things going with a surprising show-stealing match and a Bray Wyatt win.


DIVAS INVITATIONAL MATCH
I don’t know how you fit 14 Divas into a match that will last 5 minutes, but I’m actually looking forward to seeing how the chaos plays out. It’s a new season of Total Divas, and I think they’ll finally give the belt to one of the cast members, so I say Naomi wins.


THE UNDERTAKER VS BROCK LESNAR
It’s WrestleMania and it’s The Undertaker. The Undertaker wins.


RANDY ORTON (CHAMP) VS BATISTA VS TBD FOR THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
As per my previous prediction, I say Daniel Bryan wins his way into the main event. I think he’ll cap off the night by finally getting a proper title win and celebration. Bryan wins at 24 minutes.

    Also, if you need filler music for between segments, might I suggest Disturbed’s cover of Austin’s theme? The vocals can be a little much, but it’s still something different that people might not remember – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa-InpeDb-c
