It’s time for another set of predictions, this time for ‘The Ultimate Thrill Ride’ – Wrestlemania 33. This go around we’re shaking things up a little by having myself (Rob) go head to head (to head) with Ross and Dan in a predictions-off. Loser buys the beers!
Personally, I’m not that excited for this years event. I’m still suffering from ‘The Ultimate Disappointment’ of Wrestlemania 32. I’ve barely watched wrestling since that show. Hopefully, this can be the show that turns it all around again!

Fantasy booking this event looks so much better than what we are getting, and there’s no excuse for injuries this year either!
Oh well, without further moaning. Let’s get to it!
6 Pack Challenge – Smackdown’s Women’s Title
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Mickie James vs. Carmella vs. Naomi
I’m a little disappointed that this has been limited to only the 6 women. I was hoping for a few surprise returns from ‘Divas’ past and maybe the shocking return of Eva Marie. The ultimate heel.

I want Alexa Bliss to win, probably the best mic talker the women’s division has ever seen. She’s been phenomenal this past year and frankly deserves it. It’s Naomi’s hometown and WWE will think this matters. That’s why I think she’ll win but I’d love Mickie or Bliss to get it. I love crazy Mickie.
Hometown girl Naomi is everyone’s pick for this match. Continue reading
