Wrestlemania is this Sunday! I wanted to opened some sweet WWE packs but unfortunately the only things for sale were 2014 Topps WWE rack packs. There weren’t even blasters, I checked. But I got incredibly lucky the last time I opened a 2014 Topps WWE rack pack… but unfortunately I can’t capture lightning in a bottle two times in a row.
I actually got a bunch of doubles and the only interesting card was the Mankind insert. Mankind was my favorite wrestler back in the day and I really should go through my cards and sort out all my Mick Foley/ Mankind/ Dude Love/ Cactus Jack cards. I should have a bunch.
Anyways, here are my Wrestlemania XXX predictions for what it is worth.
Fatal four-way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship
Los Matadores and Ryback & Curtis Axel have been non- factors in the tag team division. The Real Americans have hinted a breakup in the past and this could be where they start feuding after coming so close to the tag team titles only to fall short probably because a miscommunication or a backstab. That leave the Usos retaining.
The Shield vs Kane and The New Age Outlaws
I foresee Kane and The New Age Outlaws winning. It creates the doom and gloom situation that Triple H and his lackeys may actually win. Plus a loss will accelerate the breakup of the Shield.
Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational
This is going to be a mess and there are going to be so many botches. All the divas will probably be targeting AJ Lee in the beginning. AJ Lee will be hurt outside the ring only to suddenly steal a win after a big spot taking out all the divas. This creates the most interesting story lines in the Diva division. The alternative is one of the Bellas winning for the Total Divas show…
André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Big Show has to be the favorite to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. The storyline and the parallels are just too obvious… may too obvious.
John Cena vs Bray Wyatt
John Cena always wins.
The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar
The steak just can’t end here. There has been a lot less buildup for this X vs the The Streak match and if Brock Lesnar wins, it would just be a waste and it would overshadow Daniel Bryan’s moment.
Daniel Bryan vs Triple H
Daniel Bryan has to win this match. It will probably be a long grueling match, there will probably be ref bumps and there will probably be run ins by Kane and the New Age Outlaws. Still there is no way Daniel Bryan doesn’t make it to the main event. It would be sweet if Triple H actually taps out to the Yes! Lock. It will give Daniel Bryan the most momentum and the “you tapped out” chants would be sweet.
Randy Orton vs Batista vs Daniel Bryan
The big Wrestlemania moment has to be Daniel Bryan overcoming impossible odds to be the champ again. Daniel Bryan will be tired and hurt after his match with Triple H. He may actually not make it to the ring right away and a doctor may be pleading with him to just go to the hospital. Randy Orton and Batista will team up to take out Bryan. With Bryan out, Randy Orton will suddenly RKO Batista but Batista kicks out, leaving the door open for Bryan. A couple of false finishes later Bryan covers Orton and the rest is history.
