The Show of Shows is here! It’s the biggest Sunday of the year in sports entertainment, and there are fifteen matches to get through. Fifteen! And that doesn’t even include anything they might throw in with Elias or Cena. When I started watching wrestling I’d get upset if my favorite wrestlers were on early in the card- now I’m hoping they are because I know I’ll be wiped by the last half of Wrestlemania. Anyway, let’s see what we’re in for with these predictions!

Women’s Battle Royal
I could see WWE giving the win to Asuka after she was dropped from the World Title picture only a couple of weeks before Wrestlemania. If nothing else it might quell “Asuka” chants during the show.
Who will win: Asuka

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Braun’s the only one building this match, so he’s the one I’m going with.
Who will win: Braun Strowman

Buddy Murphy vs. Tony Nese for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Last time I saw Tony Nese the only way he could stand out was by counting his abs, so I’m guessing he’s made some huge strides in 205 Live to get to a Wrestlemania title match. I’m picking him to win just because Murphy’s held the title for so long.
Who will win: Tony Nese

AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton
This feud is only about a month old, but I’ve loved it the whole time. Randy and AJ’s promos have been great so far by riding the kayfabe line without actually breaking it. This is one of the matches I’m looking forward to the most, despite it not being for any title and the winner not really mattering. I’m picking Orton to win, but I think AJ has just as much of a shot at it.
Who will win: Randy Orton

Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre
I like Drew and I wish WWE had the time and energy to make this match bigger, but on a card with fifteen matches it feels like a filler feud for Roman until he can fight for the world title again.
Who will win: Roman Reigns

Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin
Kurt’s in bad shape, so I’m guessing he’s going to beat Corbin in about 20 seconds flat.
Who will win: Kurt Angle

Shane McMahon vs. The Miz
This match is going to be a trainwreck, but I’m definitely looking forward to it. Shane’s matches are only as good as whatever he falls from, but with the “falls count anywhere” stipulation I’m sure they’ll find something high enough to earn it at least a couple of stars. I’m guessing Miz will win and Shane will be a face again by Summerslam.
Who will win: The Miz

Samoa Joe vs. Rey Mysterio for the US Championship
Joe and Rey have both been great, and while I would’ve loved to see Joe face Cena and Rey face Andrade at Wrestlemania, these two men will still have an amazing match together. I think Joe’s going to win and I hope he holds onto the championship for a long time.
Who will win: Samoa Joe

The Demon Finn Balor vs. Bobby Lashley for the Intercontinental Championship
I love Finn, but damn did he look goofy sticking his tongue out on Raw last Monday night. It’s been a while since we’ve seen his Demon side, but I’m guessing he’s still unbeatable. To be honest, between the title hopping on and off of these two men and Lio Rush being in and out as Bobby’s manager, this match feels like it doesn’t matter at all. I could easily see them switching the title back the next night.
Who will win: The Demon Finn Balor

The Boss and Hug Connection vs. The Divas of Doom vs. The IIconics vs. Nia and Tamina for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
Beth Phoenix has been awesome since her return. Just awesome. I’m not saying I think she’ll win, but if she did I’d have no problem with it. I think Sasha and Bayley are most likely to win, but I could see WWE giving the Divas of Doom a fun little nostalgia run. As for the other two teams, I think the IIconics need to get a bit better in the ring before holding the belts and I think Nia’s still destined to be a single’s star.
Who will win: The Boss and Hug Connection

The Usos vs. Aleister Black and Ricochet vs. The Bar vs Rusev and Nakamura
This match was just kind of thrown together, so I have a hard time imagining the Usos losing here. The Bar and Rusev and Nakamura have been an afterthought for a while, so I don’t think they’re winning and I suspect Black and Ricochet will be split up after the Superstar shakeup.
Who will win: The Usos

Triple H vs. Batista
I love that this whole match is built around a huge, successful movie star being obsessed with Triple H. That’s like the most Triple H feud ever. The build up for this match has been simple and effective, but not enough to make up for a lackluster match if they give it to us. I like big Dave and I hope he delivers, but even when he was active he wasn’t lighting that ring on fire. The whole feud started with Batista calling out Triple H for never beating him, so I’m picking Hunter to win (also HHH’s job is on the line).
Who will win: Triple H

Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
I want Kofi to win and I think he’ll win, so I’m picking Kofi to win. The only reason I think Bryan might retain is because of his sweet hemp championship, but he’s had it for a while now, so it might be okay to have Kofi bring back the leather belt. I’m terrified though that Big E or Xavier will turn on Kofi the next night on Smackdown. You know how Vince’s mind works.
Who will win: Kofi Kingston

Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship
Before Roman came back I was sure Seth was winning. Now I’m sure Seth is losing. The idea of Roman getting cheered while facing Brock Lesnar is just too tempting for Vince to turn down.
Who will win: Brock Lesnar

Ronda Rousey vs. Becky vs. Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championships
It’s got to be Becky. It has to be. I don’t think WWE would have put this much effort (too much effort) into this storyline just to have Becky lose. The match will probably end with Becky tapping out Charlotte so Ronda can go leave and not have a family while staying undefeated.
Who will win: Becky Lynch

Well I’m tired just from writing out these predictions, so I can’t imagine how I’ll feel once the show ends with Becky holding the championships. I think maybe the Revival will defend against Ryder and Hawkins too? I don’t know. There aren’t any matches I’m dreading on the card though and I think most of them will be pretty good, which isn’t something I can say about most Wrestlemanias. Look, I’ll be happy as long as Kofi and Becky win, and that’s not too much to ask for, right?
