WWE's eight Predictions For WrestleMania 31

The brand-new Levi's Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area will play host to WrestleMania 31 on March 29, 2015.

Fans are still recovering from the aftermath of WrestleMania XXX; which has arguably been one of the most successful WrestleMania events of all time. Wrestling fans witnessed Daniel Bryan walk out as WWE World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Batista, Randy Orton and Triple H earlier on in the night.

Antonio Cesaro had his breakthrough moment after winning the first ever Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, but most importantly who can forget the infamous Paul Heyman reaction when the beast incarnate Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker, to end the streak.

Only two weeks have passed and the WWE.com staff are at it again with their bold predictions for what will occur between now and WrestleMania 31. Continue reading to see what they are predicting, and whether you agree or disagree with their predictions.

John Cena will join The Wyatt Family - This looks quite likely to happen, perhaps in the upcoming weeks or months but definitely not towards WrestleMania 31 where this rivalry will have ended. John Cena and The Wyatt Family have been locked in an interesting feud for quite some time now, thanks to Bray Wyatt; which resulted in John Cena defeating Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania XXX.

This was inevitable as John Cena had been on a pay-per-view losing streak whereas it was quite the opposite for Bray Wyatt. Now the two are set to go at it again at Extreme Rules in a steel cage match, and there is a chance that even for a short while, John Cena will join The Wyatt Family, as an unwilling member like we saw with Daniel Bryan.

We've already seen John Cena don the sheep mask to 'trick' The Wyatt Family, and he has already been part of The Nexus when they formed, so this won't be anything new for Cena and won't be a permanent thing. A prediction which looks very likely that it will eventually happen.

The 2015 Royal Rumble winner will be Roman Reigns - Roman Reigns and The Shield are enjoying life in the WWE right now, and after his incredible showing at the past Royal Rumble event where Reigns broke the record for most eliminations and was runner-up to Batista; Reigns will already certainly be a favourite for the 2015 Royal Rumble.

Again, this looks like another prediction which is almost certain to happen. Reigns has been touted to have a massive face run in the company when The Shield eventually disband, perhaps later this year.

Reigns will be a part of The Shield and Evolution bout in a couple of weeks, before a rumoured match against Triple H at SummerSlam. This will set Reigns up nicely for a good Rumble win, and a rightful spot in the main event of WrestleMania 31 to catapult him into the main event spot for good, will be become the champion? Let's wait and find out.

The WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be split to two titles - There has been a mixed reaction regarding the unification of the two championships. Some thought it was a great decision to have one man as the best, the face of the company holding both belts. Whilst some believed it was a better decision to leave them separate, as the WWE Championship acted as the bigger championships and the World Heavyweight Championship was the smaller title, something the mid level talent held to elevate them into the main event limelight.

But WWE.com are saying that by WrestleMania 31, the titles will be split again. This is probably a favourable and likely prediction by many fans as this has had an affect on Friday Night SmackDown, with no World Heavyweight Championship the show is not taken as seriously.

If fans don't see superstars such as Roman Reigns, Cesaro or even Cody Rhodes as WWE World Heavyweight Championship material, then maybe by splitting them up will do them the world of good where they can challenge for the World title.

Stephanie McMahon will target the Divas Championship - This prediction was an odd one as it isn't something you would immediately think of when talking about the plans for the next year or so. But WWE.com have predicted that principal owner Stephanie McMahon will target the Divas Championship. 

This could go a number of ways, it depends on who the champion is as Paige may not be the best diva to have in this feud, whilst AJ Lee will be a better fit if this is something the WWE go with. 

What makes this prediction more interesting is that if Triple H decides to target the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, this would give The Authority a lot more heat in the process. A bold prediction which we'll have to wait and see as to what the plans are for the championship title.

Zeb Colter will form The Real Americans once again - Since Cesaro switched sides from being a Zeb Colter guy to becoming a Paul Heyman guy, Zeb Colter only has one superstar in Jack Swagger. WWE.com are predicting that within the next year Zeb Colter will form The Real Americans once again.

This is perhaps not the best of 'bold' predictions to make as it is almost a certainty to happen, in fact Colter has been very vocal on his Twitter account, where he is 'taking applications' to recruit the newest member of The Real Americans.

There will be a number of candidates that can work well under the legendary manager, with Damien Sandow currently a frontrunner, but we will definitely be seeing The Real Americans again.

Cody Rhodes will successfully cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase - The Money in the Bank match is another way a superstar manages to reach the main event level, of course some fail along the way in Damien Sandow when he failed to cash in on John Cena, but more often than not in superstars such as CM Punk and The Miz, they went on to make a name for themselves and the latest prediction states that Cody will be the next to do so.

He came close last year only to lose out to Sandow and he has been in the tag team scene for the majority of last year where they defeated The Shield to become WWE Tag Team Champions, so perhaps a Money in the Bank win is great for Cody's future.

Definitely a bold prediction, he is definitely capable of unhooking the briefcase but the big question will be whether Rhodes can come across as a legitimate WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and not just someone to hold it for a short while.

Cesaro will leave Paul Heyman, and challenge Brock Lesnar - Again, this isn't the boldest of predictions as it is something which has been rumoured on GiveMeSport before. Brock Lesnar and Cesaro is a match which the WWE are considering to put on at either SummerSlam, or WrestleMania 31 if a match with The Rock does not come to fruition.

This will be a similar storyline to the CM Punk - Brock Lesnar feud we saw last year. Heyman turning on Punk which culminated in a brilliant match between the pair. This time round, Heyman will elevate Cesaro into a main event superstar and will eventually turn on him to set up the epic encounter.

The Undertaker will retire - Fans are still unaware about The Undertaker's current situation. Has he retired? Is he taking more time off? Who knows, but the prediction states that The Undertaker will have one more match at WrestleMania 31, which will be his final match and he will eventually retire after it.

He recently lost the streak and it wasn't met to a great reaction by the fans, but it was still a good way for The Undertaker to bow out, losing to someone who was a genuine threat to the streak.

Who are the real contenders to face him? Sting is still up in the air, Kane looks a possibility too and John Cena has never had a shot at The Deadman at WrestleMania either, his situation is one to keep an eye on.
