WrestleMania 32 predictions and analysis

Published Add your comment

The biggest show of the year is live this weekend. WWE heads to Dallas, Texas for what is set to be a record-setting night of wrestling entertainment. 

Shane McMahon will do battle with not only the ownership of the company on the line but also Undertaker's WrestleMania career. Roman Reigns and Triple H will collide with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and Brock Lesnar faces the toughest fight of his career when he takes on Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred Street Fight. 

As always, fellow WWE writer Raza Kazi has also shared his predictions ahead of the biggest night in sports entertainment.

Kalisto could have been used so much more effectively than this, he could have been put in a feud with a whole host of talent and instead, WWE landed on Ryback. This is a guy who has failed to get over with the WWE Universe for a good few months and now they have decided to hand him a championship match at WrestleMania. This should have been a ladder match, there was no need for WWE to set this up, but I hope they allow Kalisto to retain because I still feel he has a lot to accomplish as Champion. 

RAZA: I believe this is going to be a good match, the feud itself hasn't been fantastic so it's a pre-show worthy match. I think fans are forgetting that these two have had a brilliant match in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament last year and I believe they'll translate that same chemistry into this match. I don't think Kalisto has been a brilliant champion and this match could genuinely go either way, but I'm sticking with Kalisto to retain.

I don't fully understand why this is on the card, other than to promote Total Divas some more and to allow Lana to finally be put in a sanctioned match, but I think this will be dreadful. Luckily, there is another Divas Match that fans are looking forward to more, which means this is just a filler match, and I see Bad and Blonde being the stand out team. 

RAZA: This isn't the Diva's match fans are looking forward to, the excitement is being saved for the three Diva's on the main card who could steal the show. In this match, I think all eyes are on Lana to see how she performs and if she's ready to carve out an in-ring career at last. At the end of the day, it's 10 women thrown together to take part in a match because there was nothing else to do, there's no real substance to the match. I believe the Total Divas will win and Brie Bella picks up the vital pinfall.


A rivalry that has been slowly simmering for quite a while now, thankfully it could finally come to an end. Obviously, neither team has the tag team championships, which means this is now about more than just championships. The Dudley's used The Usos to turn heel and finally The Usos get to extract their revenge. Hopefully, this is the only Samoan victory on the night. 

RAZA: Again, this isn't a match I'm really excited by but it's good that these two teams have a match and I do believe they'll get the fans excited heading into the main card. The heel turn is fresh and I feel it could really set Bubba Ray up as a singles star shortly, for that reason, I feel The Dudley Boyz win this match.


This match was unveiled at WrestleMania 30 as a way to honor one of the giants of WWE over the past few decades, it has since become a filler match over the past two years that has failed to do very much for the winner, with last year's winner The Big Show, currently teasing retirement.

That being said, The Wyatts could shake it up this year and hopefully, they will be the difference, if Harper is fit then I think he could win it. 

RAZA: There are still a few names to be announced in the 20-man over the top rope battle royal, and I think it will be a surprising winner, one that hasn't been announced. As always the battle royal is getting some more importance before the event after the event remains to be seen.

It's not clear whether Cesaro is ready to take part as I do think he could win it for the second time. A wild stab in the dark; I'm going with Bray Wyatt to finally pick up a WrestleMania win.


I am one of the fans who can't understand why this has been made into a ladder match once again, last year's version of this match completely stole the show and with the star power in this match then it is entirely possible that it could happen once again.

My hope is that Sami Zayn gets the victory and sets up the Kevin Owens feud we have all been waiting for. 

RAZA: This is going to be one fun match that the fans will love, expect some big spots and Zack Ryder to come agonizingly close to unhooking the title. The match last year was brilliant with Daniel Bryan winning it, but this year I think it'll be KOMania despite strong challenges by Sami Zayn and others, Kevin Owens will retain his title.


The fourth match between these two in a matter of months, my worry is that they may not be able to top the matches we have already seen. Obviously, both men always pull it out of the bag, but since AJ won the rubber match last time, the 50/50 booking rule would dictate that Chris Jericho is set to win this one. 

RAZA: The feud finally ends at WrestleMania and this is a huge moment for AJ Styles. Jericho has been a fantastic heel in this rivalry and he's really made Styles go over as the fan favourite despite being the newcomer.

I believe all of his hard work will pay off and AJ Styles will pick up a debut WrestleMania win.


It was perhaps a god idea to keep the tag team championships out of this match because they will then be saved for if the Balor Club do make their presence known the night after, then The New Day will be a great challenge for them.

Even though I believe that the titles should be on the line at WrestleMania, it was a good call there from WWE, and The New Day will obviously retain. 

RAZA: Again, a huge moment for the New Day as they have had a fantastic year and they deserve a big night at WrestleMania. There have been rumours about a fourth man coming down to the ring to even the odds; many speculating it'll be John Cena, to the excitement for the match is there even though there's nothing on the line.

I feel the WWE have invested too much in the New Day to have them lose on the biggest night of the year; The New Day win.


This is THE Divas match of the night, the match all women's wrestling fans have been waiting for and if rumors are to be believed, it could be the match that finally brings back the WWE Women's Division. These three women have changed women's wrestling in WWE over the past few years and it is only right that WWE allows them this accolade.

We have seen what Sasha and Becky can create alone, but with Charlotte in the mix, this could be one of the stand-out matches of the night. Sasha Banks to win. 

RAZA: On a personal level, I want to see the dark horse surprise the WWE Universe and pick up the win. Out of the three involved, Becky Lynch is the only one who didn't hold the NXT Women's Championship and she's already being overlooked in this match. I feel Charlotte has had a good run as champion in this wonderfully booked feud, but I only see one winner.

It'll be a great weekend for her family with her cousin being inducted into the Hall of Fame; the fans chant her name without fail on a weekly basis so Sasha Banks walks out with the gold in a match of the night contender.


This match has become just another match on the night now that all fans are happy assuming that Roman Reigns will win. Now that the match is set to be changed to a No DQ as well, this leads me to believe that Triple H will have his henchmen help him retain and he will once again screw Roman over.

There will be inference but I think Triple H will win this one, on his 20th anniversary at WrestleMania.  

RAZA: There's been so much backlash surrounding this match; it's making me less and less excited for it. I smell shenanigans in this match, especially if it's being changed into a no disqualification match.

That means we could see a return, perhaps The Rock involved or even a heel turn. Either way, Roman Reigns gets his WrestleMania moment and wins the title.


This is the most anticipated match of the night and you can see why. Dean Ambrose has been in undeniable form lately and The Beast is, without a doubt, his biggest test. Dean will not go down easy and in turn, he could be Lesnar's biggest test too. The Wyatts also lurk around because they are not scheduled for their own match which means they could easily become involved in this.

With rumors of a Brock vs Bray feud going forward, the feeling is that either Ambrose helps Brock fend off The Wyatts and then takes advantage of the distraction, or Brock easily takes out all on-comers. I would prefer to think the former will be the answer. 

RAZA: This is a match I'm looking forward to, the best-booked match on the card and Ambrose is finally looking like the star we know he deserves to be. I want to see the Jon Moxley come out in him; I want to see the most devastating, careless version of Ambrose we have ever seen. At the same time, I want the best version of Brock Lesnar where he continues to destroy Ambrose.

It's funny because usually you'd assume Ambrose stands no chance, but at WrestleMania it looks like it could happen; I'm taking a risk and saying Dean Ambrose wins the match.


This for me is the main event of the night, so many scenarios, so much riding on this match that it is impossible to predict the outcome. There are rumors that Undertaker could be facing John Cena at next year's WrestleMania, which means he has to win, but only Shane would be able to set up the rumored brand split.

This makes it all confusing, in my head I feel like The Undertaker should be allowed to bow out in his hometown after a hard fought match, so I think Shane will win this, thanks to a lot of outside interference. 

RAZA: There's so much on the line in this match that I can't even decide who I want to support in this match. First off, I hope it steals the show as it deserves to, I hope neither man gets injured - but I want to see Shane dive off the Cell and create a lasting memory. Again, it's something which could go either way but a Shane win makes the streak seem meaningless if Shane loses then his return seems meaningless.

I feel The Undertaker will be back for revenge at some point; Shane McMahon pulls off the surprise of the night.
