Tonight it is once again Wrestlemania! One of my favorite times of the year! And as always, here are my yearly predictions on who I think will win each match. This year though, I will give some reasons for a couple of my predictions instead of just making my picks.
And as I have said prior, I have no affiliation with the WWE … I’m just a life-long fan. This is just something that I love to do each year for fun.
I’m going to list each match according to it’s ‘importance’ or excitement level in my eyes:
1. Rhonda Rousey/Kurt Angle vs. Stephanie McMahon/Triple H
Now of COURSE the winners here are going to be Rousey and Angle. My reasoning is because it is Rhonda’s WWE debut – and in Wrestlemania at that. So they’re not going to allow her to lose. And with that said, a secondary prediction is that Rhonda will be the one to actually win the match itself.
2. John Cena vs. Undertaker
John Cena has been calling out the Undertaker for the last little bit leading up to Wrestlemania. Is the Undertaker going to show? Well of course he is! Undertaker doesn’t ever not answer a calling out. And my pick is definitely Undertaker – he always will be as many know he’s been one of my favorite’s since I was a kid. And why will Undertaker win? Well, 2 reasons: 1. He’s the Undertaker LOL! and 2. I feel like this match is basically trying to “reincarnate” or vindicate the Undertaker and his winning streak. It definitely hasn’t been the same since Brock Lesnar broke it.
3. Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax
Hands down my pick here is Nia Jax – the drama/storyline between these two remind me so much of being bullied when I was a child: all the popular girls would pretend they were my friend then all of a sudden they’d do something to just shatter me. Alexa Bliss is one of those bullies and users, and she needs to be knocked down a few levels.
4. Charlotte vs. Asuka
My pick here is Charlotte. I don’t have any real reason why other than I prefer her over Asuka. Although, one thing that stands out for me is that Asuka’s winning streak needs to be broken – that right there is reason enough for the win.
5. Daniel Bryan/Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn
I am so excited to see Daniel Bryan back in the ring!!! But, I am actually unsure how this one is going to go. If Kevin and Sami win, then they get their jobs back. And Shane just got out of the hospital, so he isn’t in top shape at all. I am choosing Daniel and Shane as the winners just because I prefer to have them take the win, but I am skeptical because well let’s face it: we haven’t seen Daniel Bryan wrestle for some time and as mentioned Shane is still injured. But, if they do win, I’m sorry Shane but I think that Daniel will have a better chance of winning the match as at least he has more strength to do so right now.
6. Rusev vs. Bobby Roode vs. Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal
Hmmmm … this is a tough one for me. If I could pick 2 then it would be either Rusev or Randy Orton. But I can’t can I? LOL! Okay – well my pick here will be Randy Orton. No reason – he’s just my favorite out of the four.
7. Shaemus/Cesaro vs. Braun Strowman/???
I actually should have put this one up higher on the list LOL! Okay firstly, who the heck is Strowman’s partner? We still don’t know as he refuses to fill anyone in! Well, my prediction is that based on Strowman’s attitude, he is likely either going to reunite with Bray Wyatt – or – he is going to do it all on his own – alone. And who do I think will win? It will be Braun Strowman (sorry Shaemus I still love you).
8. Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
I don’t like the feeling of this match – just because it’s Brock Lesnar. He’s brutal and we’ve all seen what he can do. I am going to have to go with Brock Lesnar as my predicted winner. But let it be known that I’m going against my heart because I would normally choose Roman because I am always hoping and praying that Brock will at some point be knocked down a few notches. One thing I can say too is that this match is NOT going to be very pretty …
9. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles
I choose Nakamura as the winner – but because I feel like it is his time to hold a belt.
10. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor vs. The Miz
Geez I hate it when there’s more than 2 in a match LOL! Harder to choose a winner and sometimes hard to keep track of what’s going on in the match itself when they’re going at it. Well, I am stuck between Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, but bottom line is I believe I will choose Seth Rollins as the winner.
11. New Day vs. Usos vs. Bludgeon Brothers
Another match to hurt my brain LOL! Well, I want the New Day to win. However, I know deep down they will not. So I have to go with that gut feeling because I am supposed to be making predictions here. The winners are going to be the Bludgeon Brothers – just for the simple fact that they are as scary and brutal as Strowman and Lesnar.
12. Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Holy Hannah how am I going to predict a winner in this one? Too many to narrow down … but I guess I have no choice? LOL! Okay okay … but for this one you guys need to let me pick 2 names. My predicted winner is going to be either Baron Corbin or Matt Hardy. I’m feeling more strongly about Matt just because I have this sense that whoever does win this has had some amount of time amassed in the WWE.
13. Women’s Battle Royal
So just like the Andre Memorial I am choosing 2 names here. I predict either Sasha Banks or Becky Lynch as the winner.
14. Cedric Alexander vs. Mustafa Ali
I’m going in truly blind with this one. I have no clue lol! Okay intuition don’t fail me now – it’s the last match. Okay, I predict Cedric Alexander as the winner.
Okay folks! So those are my predictions for Wrestlemania 34. As always, I will come back the next day to review my predictions and see how good or bad I did. Happy Wrestlemania to all the fans out there! Oh I am so excited – 4 more hours and it starts. Now … time to get my munchies for tonight! See you all tomorrow!
Love to all, Lisa Caza
