Then, On Sunday, April 6th at 7:00pm its the greatest wrestling event of the year, WrestleMania 30, live from Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana. Hulk Hogan will be the WrestleMania host. There is a two-hour pre-show starting at 5:00pm.
Rumor has it the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of New Jersey and Real Housewives of New York will be attending this event.
Once again my party will be at Buffalo Wild Wings for the PPV. What an atmosphere. It’s packed with wrestling fans and it makes it feel like we are at WrestleMania.
I started a tradition, four years ago, where I would pick who would win the match and in what order the matches would be. In 2010, I was 7-2 in who would win, but a dismal 0-9 in the order of the matches. In 2011, I was 5-3 in who would win, but again a dismal 1-7 in the order of the matches. In 2012, I was at my worst with a 4-4 record on who would win, but as it has been for the past three years, I sucked in the order of the matches, going 1-7 for the second year in a row. Then in 2013, I really stunk it up as I went 4-5 with my predictions on who would win, and a dismal 2-6 (did not pick the pre-WM match). This goes to show you that the WWE must know better than I on where a match should be placed. My four year record for who wins is a respectable 20-14 in predicting who will win the matches and an awful 5-29 in the order of the matches (did not pick the order of the WM29 pre-match).
Anyway, that will not deter me, as I am again going to pick who will win and in what order the matches will be. Even though I tell you how a match will end, if the person, or team that I pick wins even though they don’t win it the way I say, it still counts as a win for me. Sorry my predictions, my rules. LOL. Its on with the predictions:
The WWE had announced that the following will be shown during the WWE WrestleMania pre-show which will start one-hour before WrestleMania and will be on the WWE Network:
WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show
WWE Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Championship Match
- The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) © vs. Curtis Axel & Ryback, Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) and The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger)
The WWE wants to give the Los Matadores a chance to win the title, but it will not happen here. Anyway who wants the Los Matadores as champs? There was talk about breaking up The Real Americans, and Axel and Rybeck have had many chances to win. So I will go with the Uso’s retaining the title.
These are the matches that will appear during WrestleMania.
Singles Match with the winner in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
- Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan
The authority has gone out of their way to snatch victory, upon victory from Daniel Bryant. He wins the championship and on the same PPV they take it away, or he wins the title and the authority says he cheated to win and remove the title from him. This has been building for almost a year. I expect Bryan to win otherwise the fans will revolt! Oh no! How about a swerve? Let’s have a double pin and both make it to the title match. No that’s what I’m talking about.
6-man Tag Team Match
- Kane & The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)
This could be a great match. The “old guard” of Kane and The New Age Outlaws versus the “New Guard” of The Shield. Dogg and Gunn are crafty partners and they know what it takes to win, while Kane will supply the power. Rollins is underrated and somehow I am not high up on Ambrose but there are many who like him. The outcome will be provided by the next great WWE star, Roman Reigns, as he will spear Kane to get the win.
30-Man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Winner gets an Andre The Giant trophy.
- Big E, Fandango, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Titus O’Neil, Christian, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, The Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Brad Maddox, 2 mystery wrestlers.
It was always common for the big man to win the Battle Royal, so logic says The Big Show will win. We know it won‘t be The Great Khali and I don‘t think it will be Brodus Clay. I would like Big E to win the Royal and start his path towards greatness. But one thing always stands out to me and that has been that the Big Show has always been compared to Andre the Giant. So for that reason I will pick the Big Show.
- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
John Cena not in the main-event. Yes! Yes! Yes! He goes up against an up-and-coming Bray Wyatt the man in charge of the Wyatt family. This will not be easy for Cena as each of the Wyatt’s have laid the “Smackdown” on Mr. U-Can’t see me. Well they must have seen him to have beat him up, and with that, Bray will see Cena for the pin and the win. That’s right Wyatt wins…..Do I hear any Yes! Yes! Yes!
- The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
Personally, I think Brock Lesnar can wipe the ring with the undertaker. The Taker looks old and frail. Lesnar is stronger by far, and he will have to hold the match together, which I don’t think he can do. In past streak matches against the Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and CM Punk did just that. This match would have been better suited to be The Undertaker versus Daniel Bryant, with Daniel ending the streak and starting his own legacy in the WWE. But noooo, we get Lesnar versus the Undertaker. This could possibly be the worst match of the night. I have to make a prediction, so I will go with the Undertaker who will be 22-0 at WrestleMania.
Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for the WWE Divas Championship
- AJ Lee © vs. Naomi, Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya, Eva Marie, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, Layla and Tamina Snuka.
Now this match was created to give the crowd a chance to relax before the Title match for the World Heavyweight Championship. This could be an entertaining match. You have Natalya, Layla, AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka who are talented wrestlers. The Bella Twins are much improved in the ring. Naomi and Cameron have shown they can wrestle and in some matches so can Alicia Fox and Aksana. The rest are just there for the ride. In the end I think AJ Lee will retain the title.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
- Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. Winner of Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan and Triple H
The odds are stacked for possibly the best Wrestler in the WWE today, Daniel Bryan. Orton, Batista and Triple H are beasts in the ring. Triple H is the best of the three. I don’t think that they brought Batista in to lose in this match, but he will. Orton has lost to Bryan on many occasions and yet he could possibly retain his title. Ahhh, Triple H can now smell the opportunity to become the Champ once again. Wouldn’t it be nice of the man who runs the WWE is also the Heavyweight Champ? No! No! No! It won’t happen. What will happen is sometime during the match Triple H will get Daniel Bryan into the pedigree, and Orton will block it. Later in the match Randy Orton will get Daniel ready for the RKO when it will be Triple H’s turn to give Orton the Pedigree and roll Daniel Bryan on top of Orton to give Bryan the pin and the win. Yes! Yes! Yes!
This might not be the strongest WrestleMania in history. I think its being done on purpose to given Daniel Bryan his WrestleMania Moment.
There you have my predictions.
Who do you think is going to win this years matches??
