Predictions: Wrestlemania 33

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!

Still, I can’t help but think about what could have been. John Cena versus The Undertaker or AJ Styles. Kevin Owens verses Chris Jericho for the Universal Title. Bayley finally breaking Charlotte’s PPV winning streak to capture her first title. 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!

Pre-Show

6 Pack Challenge – Smackdown’s Women’s Title
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Mickie James vs. Carmella vs. Naomi

20170327_wm33_alexabeckynatamickiecarmellanaomi-c2b2bfcda4cd7b1d476e29f5dad7131cRob’s Thoughts:

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 don’t quite understand why Naomi made her return on Smackdown, surely she would have made a great surprise return on the day? Especially as she’s my pick to win. Seems to me that they pulled the trigger to early on that.

Winner: Namoi

Dan’s Thoughts:

Kind of wished they did the original plan and make it a surprise and like a gauntlet match with some past Woman’s wrestlers but whatever.

Winner: Naomi

Ross’ Thoughts:

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.

Winner: Naomi

Hometown girl Naomi is everyone’s pick for this match.


Cruiserweight Championship
Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries

20170313_wm33_nevillearies-5200398cdb5402101c57d273cd93004dRoss’ Thoughts:

This match has potential to be exciting, I know Neville probably won’t use moves from his ‘face’ move-set but it’s Wrestlemania so fingers crossed. Although it has potential, I think it’ll be dull and Double A as slightly more popular, think he’ll just nick it.

Winner: Double A

Dan’s Thoughts:

If given time, this should be a great match but I just see them delaying Aries getting the belt but I like both guys so whoever wins would be great!

Winner: Neville

Rob’s Thoughts:

I suppose it would be hypocritical of me to criticise WWE putting the Cruiserweights on the pre-show considering that I do not and have never watched 205Live. However, isn’t that the precise reason that WWE should put them onto the main show? For more exposure? A chance to shine on the biggest stage? Now granted they’ll probably get more time on the pre-show to have a great match, but fewer eyes will be on it.

As for the match itself, I think Neville will retain. I think the feud between these two can last a lot longer and there is no reason to have a title change so soon.

Winner: Neville

Dan and Rob picked Neville. Ross went for Double A, Austin Aries.


2017 André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

20170307_wm33_andre-430c681388814db3ef74fcdfd3f2bdd8Rob’s Thoughts:

Braun Strowman. It better be Strowman. If you’d have told me a year ago I would be annoyed that Strowman was being wasted in this match I wouldn’t have believed you. It just goes to show that when booking someone correctly WWE can still get someone over. It does seem beneath Braun at this point to be in this match, but if he goes over it’s another notch on his belt I suppose.

Winner: Braun Strowman

Ross’ Thoughts:

I fucking hate this match. It’s literally only there to try to keep wrestlers who deserve to be at Wrestlemania happy. Strowman, Rusev, Sami Zayn and Luke Harper. All four should be on the main card but WWE have dicked them over with part timers, AGAIN?!? Fuck off with your pointless match WWE, shove that trophy straight up your arse

Winner: Braun Strowman

Dan’s Thoughts:

If Braun doesn’t win then this company are seriously stupid idiots!

Winner: Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman for everyone.
