Yeah, so, I've been lurking around for a few days, and I've been keeping an eye on a few threads (mainly ones I recognize on page one
), you've got a WM coming up, so what the heck, I'll throw my two cents in on predictions.
John Cena (c) vs. Shawn Michaels
I see there have been a few title changes at the top on Raw in short succession. It wouldnt surprise me if you went with another change, and maybe move on to a HHH - HBK feud over the belt, but what the heck, Cena retains
, and this might rumble on a little bit longer with The Game soon to be involved.
World Heavyweight Title
Edge (c) w/Lita vs. Christian w/Tyson Tomko and Maria
A lot of people are picking Edge, and going for a Tomko heel turn. I'm inclined to do the same, but something tells me it'll be another happy Mania for Captain Charisma
Umaga (c) w/Armando Alejandro Estrada vs. Rey Mysterio
A bit like the WHC match, a lot of people have picked Rey because of the odds, and again, I'm tempted to go against the grain (mainly because of my man love for Umaga and Estrada), but this one really does have the makings of a WrestleMania upset, and Rey
should leave the new champion.
Money in the Bank and United States Title Ladder Match
Matt Hardy w/Shannon Moore vs. JBL vs. Chris Jericho vs. Gregory Helms w/Shelley Martinez vs. Kane vs. Rob Van Dam w/Paul Heyman vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Carlito (C)
Gonna go for JBL
to steal it, like he did during his days as champion. Jeff hardy though would be my dark horse to go on a do what his brother did previously. I think matt Hardy
might take the U.S Title though (if there is like a two winner thing), after the Mania he had last year, it would be somewhat of an anticlimax for him to end up as just another face in the pack this year.
Tag Champions vs. Tag Champions
MNM (c) w/Melina vs. Londrick (c)
MNM to take this one ... possibly. Hard to call, but I'll stick to MNM
thanks to some good old fashioned cheating.
Hell in a Cell
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker
. I'm in that group that doesnt think he should ever lose the streak. Not that I'd go down the street and protest about it, I just like to see him win at WM. Retirement stipulation means nothing in wrestling anyway, so there is always a comeback for the loser in some fashion I'm sure.
Street Fight for control of the WWE
Stone Cold Steve Austin is the Special Guest Referee
Vince McMahon w/The McMahon Family vs. Eric Bischoff w/Jonathon Coachman
The McMahon family might just turn on Vinnie in this one in a major shock. I'm just sensing somewhere on this show you'll do something shocking. This might be it, with a Bischoff
No Holds Barred
Mick Foley vs. Randy Orton
Foley gains nothing from a victory. Orton
does. End of dispute.
Ric Flair's Final Match
vs. Triple H
It would only be fitting for Flair to bow out as a winner.
Angle will likely be closer to title matches than Batista in the future, so it makes sense for him to go over.
The Rock vs. Ken Kennedy
He is the future, Mr. Kennedy
to take this one methinks, and The Rock can make a shitty movie.
CM Punk vs. Kid Kash
Punk has the bigger future in the thread, but I'm picking Kash in an upset, for this feud to carry on for another month or two.
1 - What match will open the show?
MNM vs Londrick
2 - What match will be the main event?
Michaels vs Cena I hope. Edge vs Christian does nothing for me personally.
3 - How many titles will change hands?
4 - What will be the match of the night?
Flair vs HHH
5 - What will be the biggest shock on the show?
Mcmahon family turn on Vince.
6 - Will there be any surprise appearances?
Yes, but I havent the foggiest as to who.
7 - What will be the biggest spot of the night?
Something in MITB with Jeff Hardy or RVD methinks.
8 - Will there be any heel/face turns? If yes, who?
9 - How will Ric Flair's career end?
He'll win, then be hoisted in the air by wrestlers young and old (Dusty, Arn etc)
10 - Who will be the 'star' of Wrestlemania 23?
Flair I guess, unless Lesnar ends Takers streak and career.
