1- WWE Tag Team Champions Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The New Day vs. Los Matadores vs. The Usos (Fatal 4-Way)
I pray Catsaro can win this one, because they’re the only ones that have done anything for the tag belts in last year. And with one Uso injured, none of other competitors are ready to get belts.
2- 2nd Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal (Announced participants: The Miz, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Fandango, Adam Rose, Zack Ryder, Jack Swagger, Titus O’Neil, Darren Young, Big Show, Kane, Erick Rowan, Damien Mizdow, Sin Cara, Goldust, Heath Slater, Mark Henry, Konnor, Viktor, and Hideo Itami)
I’m still so hyped about Hideo’s GTS at NXT in San Jose that I almost want to say him, but this belongs to Miz and MIZDOW. Both have done some of the best work of their careers lately, and Damien has earned a Mania moment.
3- Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins
I don’t think Randy will lose his first real match back, and I’m not ruling out a Rollins cash in later. Beat Seth now, then he has a comeback the next night.
4- Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett vs. R-Truth vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Stardust vs. Daniel Bryan (Ladder Match)
Daniel Bryan is too big for the IC belt, and losing it will only be more insulting. D-Bry wins it, and in my dream scenario he spends next three months elevating belt in style of Shinsuke Nakamura.
5- United States Champion Rusev vs. John Cena
Cena wins it for America, because he’s at his strongest at Mania. Hopefully he’ll have a similar restorative run with US belt to Bryan with IC.
6- The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt
Taker will not lose two Manias in a row. That’s as inconceivable as his first Mania loss. I just want Bray to look strong.
7- Sting vs. Triple H
Sting HAS to destroy Trip, and HHH will give Sting his best match in years. I just don’t want to see the Scorpion Death Lock, because I don’t think Sting can do it adequately anymore.
8- AJ Lee & Paige vs. The Bella Twins
Bellas win, likely humiliating AJ. Should make for a good episode of Total Divas in a few months.
9- WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
Oof, this is so much harder than I thought it’d be. I still think Roman will win, perhaps with a turn with Heyman betraying Brock. But I really just want to see a sequel to SummerSlam with Brock tearing Reigns to pieces. But either way, I think we’ll get a Seth cash in at the end of the night.
Up next… Grimm’s picks!
