Idea stolen from F4W.

Ground rules:

- No deaths. Injuries are fine.

- Go out on some kind of limb. HHH returns at the Rumble, Russo won't get fired, TNA will continue to do 1.1, WWE will be profitable, etc. is not going out on a limb.

- Someone's gonna get released? Try not to be too obvious with those kind of predictions.

- Try to keep it at maximum ten. LEAVE YOUR BOLDEST PREDICTION FOR LAST.

- Next year, we'll go back and see who got it right and wrong.


1. WrestleMania 27 will do a buyrate comparable to WM8, WM13, and WM19, leading to Vince McMahon becoming more hands-off with the creative direction going forward.

2. Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli will be signed with WWE.

3. As the year comes to an end, we will see the beginning of the Undertaker vs. Alberto Del Rio feud that will likely headline WrestleMania 28.

4. Randy Orton will suffer yet another significant injury, causing WWE to make a move to push a new, fresh babyface when Edge gets sent back to Raw. On the bright side, Edge will find himself creatively rejuvenated by working a long-term feud with Daniel Bryan.

5. Seth Rollins will surprisingly get a significant push on Smackdown shortly after being called up to the main WWE roster.

6. Samoa Joe will part ways with TNA, shortly tear it up on the indy scene in dream matches, and then sign with WWE or NOAH.

7. Christopher Daniels will win the ROH Title as a thank you for everything he did for the indies, and shortly thereafter sign with WWE to be a development trainer.

8. Davey Richards will lose a Win or You're Fired match as he challenges for the ROH Title on anI-PPV, in the process setting a buyrate record for ROH. He will go either to work full-time in Japan or sign with WWE.

9. Paul London will return to pre-WWE form by BOLA, and will sporadically work for ROH, Evolve, and DGUSA. He may even work a weekend for Chikara.

10. ROH, in a move to spice things up due to financial woes, will work an interpromotional feud with PWG or DGUSA, leading to numerous dream matches and boosting all companies involved in the process. This will be the loophole for Kevin Steen to return to an ROH ring.

1. Christopher Daniels will win the ROH Title.
2. Seth Rollins and Bryan Danielson will have some interaction on WWE television and 90% of the IWC will need new underwear.
3. Davey Richards will be replaced as the Indy Darling.
4. Low Ki and Chris Hero will have the USA MOTY.
5. NOAH and NJPW will work together for an inter-promotional feud.
6. ....but it will fail.
7. WWE will take more influence from MMA.
8. But TNA wont and it will hurt their buyrates even further.
9. Alberto Del Rio will win a world championship.
10. Undertaker will retire after winning at Mania.

Wow Superduper! You've definitely gone out on a limb with some of those crazy predictions. Here's mine:

1. One of the Kings of Wrestling will sign with WWE/TNA before the end of the year (I'm thinking Claudio to TNA, with Hero becoming even more of an cult hero by hanging round that bit longer).

2. TNA will announce plans to drop certain PPVs and to replace them with free TV specials.

3. Davey wins ROH title at DBD9. Everyone complains that it's too late and by the end of the year New York has started chanting "Same old shit!" for his crowd dive...yadda yadda...you know the routine. Watch any of Nigel's best matches.

4. Larry Sweeney returns to Ring of Honor. The crowd pop in insane.

5. Ken Kennedy will have one of the worst TNA title runs of all time. It's a disaster creative-wise and business-wise.

6. Dirtsheets will start saying that Vince McMahon is "reportedly high on Seth Rollins".

7. Bryan Danielson makes me cry, by stealing the show at Wrestlemania.

8. A sudden surge of interest in SHIMMER girls, from WWE and TNA, comes about at some point. The ones that fit (the Jen Blakes and Jessie McKays of the world) are the ones that actually get signed, despite IWC experts thinking it's going to be the big names (like Del Rey and Melissa). Kurihara-mania is running wild too.

9. The Shiekuation meets Strangler Corleone and posts photographic evidence.

10. One of the Hardy Boyz "injures" himself.

1. Mike Bennett will defeat Christopher Daniels for the Television title in their first match with each other.
2. WWE's plan with Lesnar & Taker at Wrestlemania will fail and they will go for Kane vs Undertaker a 3rd time.
3. Tyson Kidd will be the first new champion in WWE 2011 when he defeats Daniel Bryan for the US title.
4. Austin Aries will visit Chikara and have a match with Tim Donst at King of Trios.
5. Nexus will be split at Survivor Series with Justin Gabriel turning face in the process.
6. Lince Dorado will win the 2011 Young Lions Cup.
7. EVOLVE will end in 2011.

Chris Jericho will not return.

Mark Henry will still have a job.

Rey Mysterio, CM Punk, R-Truth, David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd, Gail Kim and Melina will all leave WWE. A continuation of the trend where people leave on their own.

Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli will turn down WWE doing to "having pride" and being "real" wrestlers.

Miz will lose the title back to Randy Orton.

Bill Goldberg will not return for the HOF.

We still will not know why Vince McMahon hates Randy Savage.

I like this one a lot, but I'm gonna ask you this - will this year's Rumble winner have ever held the WWE/World title?

Damn, you're getting too specific.

If yes then its out of CM Punk, Great Khali, Miz, Sheamus, Big Show, Jack Swagger and Kane, and if you count ECW it could also be Christian, Ezekiel Jackson or Mark Henry.

Im thinking CM Punk at the moment so ill go with yes.

Also, I looked over previous rumble winners and it seems that my prediction is quite safe. The last time a previous winner won the Rumble was Austin in 2001.

It's just that your idea got me excited to see someone completely new pushed into the main event scene for WM. I miss the days of guys winning their first premier titles at the Granddaddy of 'Em All - Austin, Cena, Batista, HBK.

I do too. The Royal Rumble has kind of lost out to the money in the bank match in that respect.

Which is stupid because MITB wins are always presented as flukes and the champs are never made credible. At least that was the case back when I watched WWE. I'm assuming it will still be the case when Miz cashes his in, if he hasn't already.

5. NOAH and NJPW will work together for an inter-promotional feud.
6. ....but it will fail.
Have you not been watching puro for the last couple of years? The NOAH/New Japan rivalry has been arguably the best thing about puro recently.

1) Dolph Ziggler will win a world title by the end of the year
2) NOAH will finally split and merge into All & New Japan
3) Tyler Black will be released by the end of the year
4) DGUSA will draw a 2 figure crowd
5) Both Edge & Christian & The Hardy Boys will have tag title runs
6) Davey Richards & WGTT will win the ROH World/Tag Titles on the same iPPV
7) Claudio will hold the PWG Title for the entire year permitting injureis
8) PWG & New Japan will work a one shot show together the day before the JAPW show.
