Here is my predictions for WWE Wrestlemania this year…
Although the final card may not have been updated fully, I shall still go ahead with my predictions.

No Holds Barred Match With “The Streak” On The Line
The Undertaker vs. Triple H
I have read in wrestling sites that they are still considering whether to have this match as the main event or Cena vs Miz… Personally, I would prefer this match to headline Wrestlemania. I feel that this match has a more MAIN EVENT feeling to it as we would sure to expect many finishing moves executed and kicked out from both superstars, just like how it was done in previous years, to make for an even more exciting match. Look to see kickouts from Pedigrees and Tombstone Piledrivers. This will be a added element that would make this match suitable ti headline the event.

However, with The Rock as the guest host of Wrestlemania, I guess that he would be starting the show and be involved in the Cena and Miz match… It has been rumoured that Rock may actually wrestle in the event against both The Miz and John Cena separately. Hence, its quite difficult to say how the three superstars’ involvement in the show will play out.

Another catch to the Undertaker vs Triple H match is the involvement of the showstopper, Mr Wrestlemania, HBK Shawn Michaels. It is most likely that he will either be at ringside or somehow be involved in the match,given his interference on RAW, participating in the debate. Hence, I won’t be surprise to actually see him appear in some form another or even interfere in the matchup since its a no holds barred match but I don’t see him costing either party their match as the finish will be done by the superstars themselves (although a sweet chin music to them would make the  match more interesting). I would rather go for a memorable match displayed by both superstars.

Another point to make would be that The Undertaker’s streak will be at stake as usual. This would made for an added excitement and watch-point for the match. Though it has not been acknowledged that The Undertaker and Triple H has faced each other at Wrestlemania 17 before, I feel that their match still could arouse the interest of the WWE universe since the match took place ten years ago and the fans from the younger generation may not have seen the match.

With that said, I would have to go with Undertaker to come off with a win. Reason is simple, The Undertaker has defeated Triple H before at Mania and he will pull it off again ashe is the Phenom. The Streak would not be risked at this stage as Triple H does not need to end the streak to helphim advance in his career at this point. Thus, I don’t see Undertaker get his legacy broken.

Winner: The Undertaker  

WWE Championship Match
The Miz (c) vs. John Cena
The Rock’s involvement in this match would surely add excitement to what seem to be a rematch and revisits to the feud between Cena and Miz, which would make the match seem uninteresting. Since the Rock’s return and controversy with the two of them, interest in this match has risen and anticipation to what this three man will bring to the table has been brought to a whoe new level.

Look to see Alex Riley be involved in the match in some small capacity, as The Rock will be a key player in this match. If this match is even going to happen at all, without The Rock wrestling, the winner would be tough to choose…
What would be seem more than obvious would be Cena having his usual fan reaction of “Let’s go Cena, Cena suck” thing…

With an ambiguous feel and not knowing what may happen between these 3 man, it sure is exciting to lookforward to Wrestlemania this year.

Winner: This one is tough but I willgo with The Miz prevailing and leaving mania still The WWE Champion. He needs the championship to assure his credibility more than Cena does.

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Edge (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
This is another match that will be interesting, especially witht he return of Christian and how he will play a part in this match. As with the majority of the Royal Rumble winners winning their Mania matches to become world champions, it could have been Alberto Del Rio’s night but Christian’s involvement could go either way. It has been speculated that Christian could turn heel and cost Edge the championship and the three couldgo into a feud for the championship after Mania…

However, plans are always changed at the last minute and Christian couls be at Edge’s side still, but help him to fend off Ricardo Rodriguez. Since Alberto won the Rumble match and has not held the world championship, I will have to go with him capturing the gold at Mania.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio

Randy Orton vs. CM Punk
There has been a added element between these two in the past few weeks with Nexus members angle playing out, as to whether they can be at ringside with Punk but all of them failed to defeat Randy and thus, this match will be a singles match with no outside interference from Nexus.

I reckon this matchwould be a exciting one with good back and forth and a good story behind to back it up.
However, the anticipation for this match has lost some steam in my opinion, given many more matches in the card that looks far more exciting and hence, they may have to work doubly hard in the match to make it a classic to capture the WWE Universe’s attention and cover the excitementof the other matches.

Winner: Randy Orton, I will have to go for the babyface in this one.

Special Guest Referee: “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Jerry Lawler vs. Michael Cole
(Michael Cole’s trainer Jack Swagger will be in his corner.)

This one would be a fun match to watch!!!
Look foward to seeing Swagger get stunner-ed by Austin and some payback on Cole. There is a slight possibility that Cole might pull the upset with the babyfaces getting their revenge afterwards… BUT, this feud has been built so big that the blowup to it should be a happy ending, especially with Stone Cold as the special referee, there’s no chance of Cole winning. I will have to go with the babyfaces and fan favourite getting the win here.

Winner: Jerry Lawler

6-Person Mixed Tag Team Match
Trish Stratus, Snooki & John Morrison vs. LayCool & Dolph Ziggler
This would definitely be a entertaining and fun match, with Vickie around as well as the return of the seven time women’s champion Trish Stratus. I don’t see why Morrison and Ziggler should be in this match as they seem more of the sidekick to the ladies here as they are clearly the highlights in this match, especially with Snooki there.

I would rather they have Morrison face ziggler in a singles matchup.
With Finlay seemingly released from WWE, the divas’ wrestling and arrangements could very well affected but planning and practice could lead to a good match displayed with divas such as Trish and Laycool to pull off the wrestling part of the match for the divas, since Vickie and Snooki and not really wrestlers…
I guess the ending would have to be Laycool getting their comeuppance after laying out Trish a few weeks back and Trish hitting them with her movesets and finishers, and Snooki getting the pin on Vickie or one of the Laycool members. The lost could be played out after Mania leading tot he breakup of Laycool that was hinted before Mania and the setting up of this match. I will have to go with the babyfaces for this one definitely after so much wins on them from the HEEL side. (It would be good if Lita/Kelly Kelly could be in this match as well, perhaps in Trish’s corner to counter off Vickie.

Winner: Trish Stratus, Snooki & John Morrison

WWE United States Title Match
Sheamus (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
This match should be a good display of moves to perk the WWE Universe up and get them ready for subsequent big matches. Daniel Bryan’s matches are always exciting to watch, given his agility and wrestling skills. Hopefully his girlfriend, Gail Kim would be in his corner. =)

With Sheamus getting the championship just recently, I don’t see him losing it back to Daniel Bryan… And they are slowly packaging Sheamus’ character back on track after losing it for a while and jobbing to other for a few weeks.

Winner: Sheamus 

8-Man Tag Team Match
Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater and Ezekiel Jackson vs. Santino Marella, Vladamir Kozlov, Big Show and Kane

This match will be a match that could be more of a filler spot but if it were to be done as a elimination style, it would definitely be more interesting. It was originally planned to be Christian and Kofi Kingston in Santino andKozlov’s spots but Christian has since been moved to the Worls Championship angle. It was said that Santino has always been good in the roles given to him and garnered good reactions as wanted, a Wrestlemania match for him would be his reward.

This leaves Kofi Kingston hanging with no matches in the event. It was rumoured that there could be a last minute addition of Kofi vs Drew Mcintyre but I would prefer it if they had this match including Morrison and Ziggler in a 4-way match to determine the number 1 contender for the WWE/World championship, since they scrapped the idea of the Money in the Bank this year for Mania.  

Winner: The Corre

Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes
This match could very well be the opener with Mysterio as the hot superstar to bring up the atmosphere of the PPV! The United States championship could be the opener as well though…
This storyline has been progressing wellfor a few weeks and Cody has been threateningt to remove Mysterio’s mask…

I guess that Rey will pull off this one, gaining a victory after all the things that Cody has done to him. He should have his revenge at Mania.

Winner: Rey Mysterio

Other Note
It has been rumoured some time back that there couls be another Divas match as well, but nothing has been announced yet. A Battle Royal or sort could be injected to include all the divas in the matchup if there is a match or a last minute Divas Championship match would be nice as well. Perhaps Awesome Kong could make her debut earlier than the rumoured April and destroy the divas and make an impact at Mania and perhaps setup a feud with The Glamazon, Beth phoenix…

It is also rumoured that Jim Ross could be announcing the Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole match and The Undertaker vs Triple H match. =) 

Thats all for my predictions for WWE Wrestlemania!
