WrestleMania XXX predictions

Discussion in 'PPV's & Specials' started by Mr. Perfect, Aug 27, 2013.

  1. I am not looking for your dream card or what you *want* to see happen.

    I'm asking for your predictions of what the top main events will actually be. This is just for fun! We can look back and see if anyone guessed correctly, 7 pay-per-views from now...(obviously if either Stone Cold or The Rock agree to return for WM, that will change everything)....but just for fun.

    How well can you predict the WWE?

    Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

    Royal Rumble winner John Cena vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. CM Punk

    I think the triple main event you mentioned could end up being the top marquee matches (except with Punk winning the Rumble as rumored, not Cena... I could see it coming down to Punk and Cena as the final two and Punk tosses Cena out to everyone's surprise), but there's a handful of different ways this Mania could go so it's hard to say. Punk winning the title seem somewhat plausible, but what about Bryan? Bryan/HHH almost seems like a given and after Bryan defeats HHH and helps shift complete power and control back to the hands of Vince McMahon, where does he go then? The whole endgame to this Bryan vs the World (i.e the Corporate glass ceiling of WWE) angle seems to be that Bryan will prove them wrong and reclaim the WWE Championship and show that he is an A player. That can't happen when Punk is the one headlining and winning the title at Mania. All of this also makes me believe that Bryan will either defeat HHH before Mania in a grudge match and then go to win the title there (Cena could be the guy that Vince chooses to represent him against HHH at Mania) or the Bryan/HHH match at WM30 also has the title at the center of it. Either Bryan walks in as champ and retains the belt against HHH or the title somehow finds it's way around Triple H's waist and it's he who Bryan has to defeat to finally reclaim it. I can picture HHH holding the title up and saying that if Bryan really does want it back, then he will ultimately have to go through him.

    I'm skeptical of them combining the WWE Title match and the power struggle angle into one, though. But I'm even more skeptical that Punk is being given the title over Bryan at Mania, which would mean Bryan isn't getting it anytime soon, perhaps an epic Summerslam 2014 main event between Punk and Bryan where Bryan goes over then but would they really play out Bryan finally getting his well deserved reign as champ all the way to next summer? What would Bryan do between WMXXX and Summerslam 2014? (I'm starting to ramble here so I'll move on.)

    So, I could just as well see this sort of card playing out: Cena/Undertaker, Punk/Lesnar and Bryan/HHH.

    Elsewhere on the card, I'm thinking Sandow will cash in his briefcase to become World Heavyweight Champion. The 30th Wrestlemania is the ideal place to do something historical that has never been done before and ever since the inaugural MITB match at Wrestlemania 21, no one has yet to cash in AT a Mania. It seems like such an obvious moment and people keep waiting for it but fourteen MITB matches (six of which were at Mania in the past) and thirteen cash ins later, its yet to happen. Maybe Ziggler is champion by then and retains his title only to be cashed in on Sandow. Someone finally cashing in on the big stage and a first ever World Heavyweight Champion being crowned in the process is truly deserving of a Wrestlemania moment that will be replayed in the future. As for who Ziggler is wrestling beforehand, maybe Orton. With the three aforementioned matches above, that leaves Orton out of a big match and just holding his dick doing nothing despite his important role in the middle of everything happening right now, so putting him in a world title match with Dolph Ziggler (Ziggler could have won the belt by then and Orton wants to win the WHC to make up for losing the WWE Title) is a sure way of making sure he still lands in a semi-important role. I'm fine with Ziggler/Orton as they've produced great matches in the past. Ziggler retains, Sandow cashes in afterwards.

    I could also see The Shield splitting and ending up in a triple threat match with each other or something, or maybe it'll be just Rollins/Ambrose with Reigns going off to do something else. Maybe Goldberg and Ryback really will happen as well, who knows. Could be interesting to see.

    So, that's one card I could see happening - Cena/Undertaker (promoted as Undertaker's retirement with a slogan of "Win, Lose Or Draw, The Streak Ends On April 6th, 2014"), Daniel Bryan/Triple H (which centers around the WWE Title as well as who will ultimately control the WWE), CM Punk/Lesnar, Dolph Ziggler/Randy Orton (with Ziggler retaining the WHC and then getting cashed in on Sandow afterwards), either Ambrose/Rollins or Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns, Goldberg/Ryback (maybe), etc.

    I've read about the rumored Vince vs HHH split, and I hope they don't do it. I don't think they will. It's so cliche. Leave the focus on Bryan getting revenge, getting his WWE Title back. McMahon's ego makes the split a possibility, if he decides he really wants to be written off tv (for the millionth time) in some grand fashion at WM 30, it could happen. So a HHH-McMahon split could happen, but I hope it doesn't and I think they will come up with something better. Steph would have to choose a side, it just seems corny to me.

    I see Daniel Bryan having his huge win and finally capturing the WWE Title from Randy Orton at some late 2013 PPV in a gimmick match, but then he will be screwed out of his championship (by HHH and/or the McMahons) at Royal Rumble. He will be screwed again by HHH in his WWE Title rematch at Elimination Chamber. This will be the final straw. Bryan challenges HHH to a match on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Some kind of stipulations will be added, and Bryan will get the huge "WrestleMania Moment" win over HHH.

    You can't underestimate the significance of that to the tons of casual fans who buy only Wrestle Mania and watch wrestling only in "WM Season". They have no idea who Daniel Bryan is...he got knocked out by Sheamus in 18 seconds, and he won a Tag Title match last year.... He really doesn't have any notable WM Moments. Wrestle Mania tends to be real "mainstream" booking wise, geared toward casual fans, so Bryan beating HHH on the biggest stage is equally as big for him as if he was becoming WWE Champion at that point.

    I'm not saying Bryan being in the WWE Title match wouldn't be good or can't happen, there's a good chance that happens. Looking at the amount of time between now and WM 30, it's far fetched to think they will stretch his title win out that long....Also, I'm factoring HHH into my prediction. Remember how he inserted himself into an angle with CM Punk during Punk's rise? He will likely do the same thing with Bryan.

    Plus, what is Cena going to do when he comes back from injury? No one to get revenge on. He lost his WWE Title fair and square, so he will be in the WWE Title scene when he comes back, believe me.
     
  5. My triple main event:

    The Wyatt Family v The Shield - the losing group must split up as stipulation.
    Daniel Bryan (C) v CM Punk (RR winner).
    The Undertaker v John Cena.
     


  6. * I would be overjoyed to see Damien Sandow cash in and become World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania. Epic is the only word for what a moment that would be!

    * I don't think The Shield will be split so soon. But who knows, WWE loves to break guys up...but a feud with the Wyatt Family makes sense. They can keep the 2 groups separate until WM Season.

    * No way should "Draw" be in the slogan. Who would buy that? "Win or Lose, The Streak Ends April 6th" is fine. If this is Undertaker's final WM, I'm sure that will be promoted.
     

  7. I think The Undertaker vs. John Cena is the biggest money match for WWE, but apparently Undertaker wants to fight Lesnar.

    I'm not arguing with the buyrate potential of Lesnar vs The Streak.... plus I love Lesnar matches, so putting Taker vs. Brock instead of vs. Cena, the main event match will probably be 10 times better!
     

  8. I have no interest in seeing part-timer v part-timer.

    Plus, it would be a missed opportunity if Cena didn't face the streak during his career and at WM30 it seems the right time.

    Also, how else would Cena get on the card? Round 3 vs the Rock? No one else is big enough to challenge Cena and fans don't want to see him involved in the WWE title picture atm.

    Taker v Cena at WM30 is logical.

  10. I agree that Bryan defeating HHH would mean just as much if not more as winning the WWE Title but the question is where does Bryan go after the HHH victory? The whole point of this story line isn't just defeating and proving HHH and his regime wrong, it's getting the belt back in the process and proving he is worthy of being a world champion and the face of the company. Bryan having the title for maybe a couple of months from late 2013 to early 2014 doesn't really cut it. I don't see the point in giving the belt back to Punk instead of Bryan when Bryan is the more popular superstar at the moment and the fresher main event star and Punk just held the title for 434 days.

    By the time Wrestlemania season gets here, The Shield will have been together for a year and a half. I never expected them to be together that long, honestly. They'd probably be splitting by the end of this year if it weren't for the fact that they've just found a new role in being HHH's hired muscle, which I'm sure has given them more longevity as a group.

    And I personally love the slogan "Win, Lose Or Draw." It's a slogan that shows that any outcome is possible, even though no one likes a draw. But no one would legitimately believe a match of this caliber would end in a draw anyhow.

    And yes, Sandow cashing in and walking out as WHC at WMXXX would be awesome. It would be a great way to start the post-Wrestlemania period as far as having a fresh World Heavyweight Champion and Sandow could talk about how he was the one guy smart enough out of all the MITB winners to create a huge immortal Wrestlemania moment by cashing in at the event itself.
     
  11. Honesty?

    I See this

    Punk vs Austin
    Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar.
    Cena vs HHH
    The Rock vs Daniel Bryan
     

  12. I agree, that is THE biggest possible match they could make, and it's the match they need to make before Undertaker retires.

    I'm just going off what I read online that he wants to fight Brock. That's the prediction.

    But maybe Undertaker has already agreed that he'll fight Cena at WM 31 and then retire after that. It's all speculation at this point, but I enjoy it. I haven't even considered the Streak ending in years.... even with the great match vs HBK, I still didnt ever buy that the Streak would end. But with Cena as the opponent, you wonder...
     
  13. * If Stone Cold returns for 1 more match, I promise I will give my grandmother a Stunner....and a Perfect Plex.

    * Cena already made HHH tap out at WM, so I doubt they'd book that match again.

    * No way would they pit Rock against Bryan, cannibalizing his popularity. No chance in hell.
     

  14. I'm not predicting Punk to re-capture the WWE Title, I'm saying he's in the hunt and with no other worthy opponents (as of now), he will likely be stuck into the WWE Title picture. Cena could win it for the 1285th time...or The Viper retains. With 2 other "happy ending" main events (Undertaker defeating Brock, Daniel Bryan defeating HHH), they could give Orton the big WM win and still end the show on a good guy win, as they always do (except 2000, 27)

    Bryan becoming WWE Champion doesn't need to be at WM. He's done it already, maybe multiple times by WM time. You've got to predict this thing long-term....by the time WM 30 rolls around, its been 8 ppvs. Bryan surely has already re-gained the WWE Title and proven himself, so he can set his sights on the man who has been fucking with him since Summer Slam, HHH. I'm telling you, a match with HHH @ WM is as big if not bigger than him winning the WWE Title for the 3rd time. Making the evil HHH tap out at WM would be a major accolade for Bryan's career.
