Wrestlemania XXXI

Kickoff Pre-Show: Fatal 4 Way for the WWE Tag Team Championship
The Usos vs. Los Matadores vs. Big E and Kofi Kingston vs. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd
I don't have much to say about this match. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd will remain champs.

Kickoff Pre-Show: Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Konnor, Viktor, Kane, Big Show, Darren Young, Titus O’Neil, Jack Swagger, The Miz, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fandango, Adam Rose, Zack Ryder, Erick Rowan, Sin Cara, Damien Sandow, Goldust, Mark Henry, Heath Slater, Hideo Itami
This match is full of mostly jobbers. One of them won't win. I like the Ascension, even though they're mostly just on house shows. I really like Curtis Axel. I've liked Heath Slater since his debut with Nexus. I like Damien Sandow but they ruined the character he started with. Barely any of these guys have been on Raw or Smackdown the past couple weeks, so why should they win? Kane and Big Show are the biggest names here. It's going to come down to them as the final two and it's going to start a feud after Big Show wins.

Ladder Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Bad News Barrett vs. R-Truth vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Stardust vs. Daniel Bryan

I really like Dolph Ziggler and would love for him to win. But he's won the past couple matches against D. Bry. I don't see them having him win on Wrestlemania. I'm surprised they are having an odd number of men in this match. I'm thinking Sheamus will make his return and become a challenger in this match. If he does, I think Sheamus will win. If he doesn't, the winner will be Daniel Bryan. Can't let all his fanboys down, after all!

Sting vs. Triple H
Sting is going to win, hands down. He's in Wrestlemania for the first time ever! Who hasn't wanted to see Sting in a Mania match?! Everyone's been wanting this for almost 15 year, since the end of WCW. Sledgehammer vs. Bat. Pedigree vs. Scorpion Death Drop. Sting didn't come onto WWE to lose his first Wrestlemania match.

AJ Lee and Paige vs. The Bella Twins
I'm disappointed that this isn't a match for the Diva's Title. After AJ giving Paige an elbow on Raw, I wouldn't be surprised if they change it to a Fatal Four Way. Paige proposed that she and AJ become a tag team. But does she have ulterior motives for that? After all, there isn't much to gain for the women by being a tag team. It isn't like there's a Diva's Tag Team Championship...but there should be. I'd like to see the match end with Paige using PTO on one twin and AJ Lee using the Black Widow on the other.

Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton
Seth Rollins has been having his ass kicked. He's going to have it handed to him by Randy Orton in this match. But Rollins can't win without help. J&J Security is going to interfere and cost Orton the match, making Seth Rollins the winner. Will he then cash in his MITB case against Roman Reigns or Brock Lesnar?

WWE United States Title
John Cena vs. Rusev
Rusev is still undefeated in a match. All his talk about the US is really getting old, annoying, and boring. I don't love Cena, but I love that he loves this country. The winner will be John Cena after putting Rusev in the STF, followed by the US flag popping down.

Bray Wyatt vs. The Undertaker
Why is the Undertaker returning after losing his streak last year? Because he can. We don't get to see the Tombstone until Taker is there. I think next year's Wrestlemania will be Mean Mark's last, retiring in his home state of Texas. As for this year? Bray Wyatt will rest in peace.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship:
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar
I'd like to see Roman Reigns win. He comes from a long line of Samoan wrestlers. But he still has some improving to do, especially on the mic (though he has gotten better). I didn't watch wrestling when Brock Lesnar was in his heyday. I loved it when I was a kid, then stopped watching it for a long time and just picked back up with it a few years ago. I also didn't have cable in the past 2 years so I've missed a lot. I just started being able to watch again right before the Royal Rumble. So I've never seen Brock Lesnar wrestle. But I know he's good. Brock Lesnar is going to win. He just signed a three year contract with WWE. He isn't going anywhere.

I can't wait until Sunday! I'll be watching to see which of my predictions happens. I also can't wait to see some of my childhood favorites being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday - the Bushwhackers and Macho Man Randy Savage! I'm glad that Macho Man's family decided to go against his wishes of being inducted without the rest of the Poffo family. Only thing I'm not looking forward to is Eva Marie hosting it.
