WWE presents the 30th annual Wrestle Mania this Sunday, live from New Orleans, LA. Below is the card as well as my quick predictions for the show:
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. Triple H/Daniel Bryan
Whoever wins the Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan match I see walking out of Wrestle Mania with the World Championship.
Winner gets into World Title match: Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H
Daniel Bryan wins here and gets the big payoff for what started at Summer Slam last year.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker
The streak continues and Undertaker moved to 22-0.
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
Wyatt gets the win here, giving him the rub that will lead to Wyatt being a main event talent in 2014.
United States Champion Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and Kane
The Shield get the win here and continue to play the tweeners into the summer.
Tag Team Championship: Jimmy and Jey Uso © vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel vs. Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger vs. Diego and Fernando
The Uso’s retain in what could be a very entertaining bout.
Andre the Giant 30 Man Battle Royal: Sheamus, Christian, Big Show, The Great Khali, Mark Henry, Alberto Del Rio, Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston, Brad Maddox, Brodus Clay, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Fandango, Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, Zack Ryder, Titus O’Neil (and 3 mystery participants to be announced)
Unless a big name is revealed as a mystery participant, only Sheamus, Big Show, Christian, Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Mark Henry and Dolph Ziggler have a shot of winning. I’m going with Sheamus to pick up the win.
Vickie Guerrero Invitational for the Divas Championship: AJ Lee (c), Aksana, Alicia Fox, Brie Bella, Cameron, Emma, Eva Marie, Layla, Naomi, Natalya, Nikki Bella, Rosa Mendes, Summer Rae and Tamina.
Many fans are picking AJ to drop the title but I see her retaining on Sunday.
WWE sent out a text yesterday stating Steve Austin will be at Wrestle Mania 30 on Sunday. Austin's last match at a Wrestle Mania was 11 years ago when he lost to The Rock.
Batista will be wrestling in his first Wrestle Mania since 2010. In 2010, Batista lost the WWE Championship to John Cena. Batista left WWE a few months after.
Hulk Hogan returns to Wrestle Mania this Sunday for the first time since 2005. In 2005, Hogan showed up at Wrestle Mania 21. Hogan's last match at Mania was 2003.
Sunday at Wrestle Mania 30, The Undertaker puts his 21-0 when he takes on Brock Lesnar. During the streak, Undertaker has wrestled Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Ric Flair and Edge.
Right now, Daniel Bryan is arguably the most popular wrestler in WWE. On Sunday at Wrestle Mania 30, he takes on Triple H. If he wins, he will get a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship later in the night.
