WrestleMania 28 Predictions: Predicting the Finish to Every Match
It has been a long trip from the Royal Rumble in January through the Elimination Chamber in February, but now the Road to WrestleMania has made its final stop as we’re just mere hours away from WrestleMania 28.
Sun Life Stadium will be rocking tonight, as the WWE has put together one of the greatest cards in recent memory with Triple H taking on the Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell, CM Punk defending his WWE Title against Chris Jericho and, most importantly, the Rock taking on John Cena in the main event.
With countless articles here on Bleacher Report making picks on who will tonight at WrestleMania, the following slideshow will take a look at who will win tonight at Sun Life, but also how they will on the biggest stage in professional wrestling.
Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix and Eve
Even with the extra star power of television personality Maria Menounos inserted into the match, I think this will be a bathroom break or kitchen run for more wings whenever this match happens tonight at WrestleMania.
It would be great if the WWE cared about the Divas division like they did when the roster was filled out with the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita and Victoria, among others.
Ultimately, Maria Menounos will likely get the pin over the Diva’s Champion Beth Phoenix tonight, continuing their disputes, while also making the division just a little more irrelevant in the WWE.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny 12-Man Tag Team Match
Even though the WWE just lumped all of their unused talent into this tag team match tonight, I think it has the opportunity to be pretty exciting. You can guarantee that it will break down and everyone will be fighting at the same time.
With the high-flying ability of Kofi and R-Truth to the power of Mark Henry and the Great Khali, there are enough different styles of wrestling that will keep the fans at Sun Life Stadium into the match, as the winner becomes the sole GM of Monday Night Raw and SmackDown.
In the end, I think Team Teddy will come out on top tonight after Captain Santino Marella does his best impression of Mick Foley’s Mr. Socko and hits the Miz with the Cobra to get the win for his team at WrestleMania.
Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes
After the near-constant belittling of the Big Show by Cody Rhodes over the several weeks, the former WWE Champion will finally get his hands on the outspoken Intercontinental Champion tonight and possibly take his title from him as well.
During the match, I think the Big Show will let out his frustrations for the aforementioned attacks and dominate the majority of the match against Rhodes, much to the expected delight of those in attendance at Sun Life Stadium.
Even though it would be great to see the Big Show walk out of WrestleMania with his first Intercontinental Championship, Cody Rhodes will catch the biggest superstar in the WWE with his Disaster Kick finisher from the middle rope and retain his championship.
Randy Orton vs. Kane
Among the matches set to take place tonight at WrestleMania, this match has a great chance of being lackluster, as Orton and Kane were tossed into this feud after Elimination Chamber, as they had no current rivalry.
As for the match, I think Orton will come out on top of Kane tonight after hitting an RKO on the Big Red Monster out of nowhere as he’s being lifted up to be hit with a chokeslam.
Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan
Of the eight matches on the card for WrestleMania tonight, it seems that even the Divas tag team match has gotten more build-up than the World Heavyweight Championship match between champion Daniel Bryan and Royal Rumble Winner Sheamus.
Despite that, I think Sheamus and Bryan will be able to put on a good match tonight, as the WWE has given two relatively new superstars a championship main event match tonight.
After breaking loose from the Lebell lock submission in the later moments of the match, Sheamus will hit the Brogue Kick on Bryan and win his first World Heavyweight Championship of his career in a hard-fought match.
Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk
Out of all the matches tonight at WrestleMania, I think the CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho feud has had the best build-up of any match, including Rock-Cena, as Jericho has definitely made it personal with talk of Punk’s family.
Even with the stacked card, the WWE Championship match will be the show-stealer tonight, as Punk and Jericho are two of the best workers in the company today and will definitely have the crowd into it from the opening bell through the end of the match.
For the winner of the match, it is really tough to tell how this match will end, but my guess is that Punk will retain against Jericho after making Y2J tap out in the Anaconda Vice submission hold.
Triple H vs. the Undertaker, Hell in a Cell
Personally, I think it would be a stupid decision by the WWE Creative team if they have Triple H, who has done more than enough in the WWE, to end the streak of the Undertaker tonight inside Hell in a Cell.
During the course of the match, I believe we’ll see Shawn Michaels get involved in the match physically after getting knocked out of the ring inadvertently by the Undertaker.
In the end, I believe the Undertaker will improve to 20-0 after ducking out of the way of Sweet Chin Music to let the Game receive it, giving the Phenom the chance to get the pin and escape Hell in a Cell with his undefeated streak.
The Rock vs. John Cena
No matter if you’re rooting for the Rock or John Cena tonight in their “Once in a Lifetime” match at WrestleMania, there is no doubt that the contest is going to be one of the best in the history of the WWE’s premier event.
If you’ve seen the match of Cena’s where he defended the WWE title against Rob Van Dam at ECW One Night Stand, I expect the crowd to be fully against Cena tonight, mirroring the crowd from the Hammerstein Ballroom (but maybe a little more PG than the rabid ECW fans).
I know I’m going to get some hateful comments on this one, but John Cena will keep his promise and beat the Rock after reversing a Rock Bottom attempt into an AA for the win.
