WrestleMania: The time of the year that every wrestling fan dreams about, where dream clashes happen and history is written in the big book of 'Mania memories. WrestleMania 31 is sure to be another success with some high profile matches.
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale:
This competition first took place at last year's WrestleMania and is sure to be a traditional match in events to come. Last year, Cesaro took home the prestigious trophy; this year we are looking at a new likely winner in Damien Mizdow.
Mizdow has been the sidekick of The Miz and has recently come into his own. We will likely see Miz and Mizdow as the final two competitors with Mizdow turning on his former boss. Also it is to be noted that Sheamus is rumored to be entering the match and returning from his injury, he could be another favorite, as well as big men, Big Show, Kane, Mark Henry and the hungry Ryback.
Prediction: Damien Mizdow wins by last eliminating The Miz.
Nikki & Brie Bella vs AJ Lee & Paige:
This is the one match with very little hype going into it, and will probably be the opening match of WrestleMania.
Expect the Bella twins to win. Either Paige or AJ may turn on each other, accidentally or on purpose, to cost them the match and thus starting a new rivalry between them.
Prediction: Nikki & Brie Bella win.
Ladder Match for Intercontinental Championship:
This match will have seven competitors trying to climb the ladder and go for the championship. Current champion, Bad News Barrett has the odds against him. Joining Barrett in the match are Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Stardust, R-Truth and Luke Harper.
Both R-Truth and Luke Harper would be very unlikely choices to win, as well as Stardust whose new image is entertaining but given the competition it would be difficult to see him win. It's a tough decision between Daniel Bryan and Dean Ambrose, although it wouldn't be surprising if Barrett retained or if Ziggler won. Daniel Bryan winning this title would bring serious legitimacy back to the mid-card championship.
Prediction: Daniel Bryan wins.
Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton:
This is probably the toughest match to predict the winner in. There is the self-proclaimed future of the WWE in Seth Rollins and there's the veteran viper, Randy Orton.
This will be great match put on by two great performers. Rollins may have J&J security with him and they could play a part in the outcome of the match.
Prediction: Randy Orton wins.
John Cena vs Rusev for the U.S. Championship:
Rusev has been on a role as the U.S. Champion and looks to continue that roll by beating John Cena again on Sunday and representing his Russian flag while doing so.
Rusev may want that but Rusev likely won't get that. Cena has had great performances at WrestleMania's for years and although Rusev seems unstoppable, it is only his first WrestleMania and Cena looks to bring the title back to the United States of America. Keep in mind that Rusev has never been beaten in a WWE ring.
Prediction: John Cena brings the title home.
The Undertaker vs Bray Wyatt:
It seems like yesterday that The Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania was broken, when he lost to Brock Lesnar last year the WWE Universe was shocked and The Undertaker hasn't been in the ring since.
Bray Wyatt issued the challenge to the Deadman in a match which will feature the previous character of darkness in the WWE with the current one, almost a passing of the torch. That being said the chances of the Undertaker losing again at Wrestlemania are slim.
Prediction: The Undertaker wins.
Sting vs Triple H:
Sting is the last WCW holdout to never compete in a WWE ring. Fans saw Sting make his first appearance on WWE during the Survivor Series pay-per-view. Since then, Sting has issued a challenge to WWE COO Triple H for a fight at WrestleMania.
This battle is sure to be one for the history books as the legend from WCW goes head to head with the legend of the WWE. This will be Sting's first WWE match ever.
Prediction: Sting wins
Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns:
It seemed a foregone conclusion that Roman Reigns would win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. That is until Brock Lesnar announced his multi-year contract extension with the WWE.
Many thought that Lesnar would return to UFC meaning that he would lose to Reigns at 'Mania, but that's not the case as Lesnar is here to stay. His challenger Roman Reigns won the Royal Rumble to earn him a main event match against Lesnar for the championship.
The fans showed their displeasure with Reigns, booing and jeering him. Reigns since has put on a couple of good matches but the fans are still not sold on him. What once seemed like a sure thing is now completely up in the air. Not to mention, Seth Rollins could use his Money in the Bank contract to try and win the title which has never been done at a Wrestlemania. This should be a great main event.
Prediction: Brock Lesnar retains the title.
