WWE WrestleMania 30 Matches: Full Predictions for PPV's Biggest Clashes
The card has been locked in, and the promo work has been done over the past few weeks. WrestleMania 30 is almost here.
There are several matches which will no doubt capture the imagination of everyone, as a strong-looking card has gradually taken shape over the past few weeks.
The likes of Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan and The Undertaker are all competing in a series of matches that could dictate the direction of the WWE over the next few months.
But how will the big matches pan out, and who will prevail on the biggest stage of them all? Let's take a look.
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
We start with a match that has been in the offing for a good couple of months, as John Cena finally looks to sink Bray Wyatt.
Despite what many people believe about John Cena in the ring, this should actually be a pretty good spectacle. John Cena matches are always well-hyped, and since this is WrestleMania this one will no doubt have a good length to it.
It is the moment that Bray Wyatt truly arrives at the head of the WWE as a top Superstar. It would be best if he is allowed to go it alone and not have any significant interference from Erick Rowan and Luke Harper.
And Wyatt could well prevail. Beating John Cena at WrestleMania 30 would put Wyatt over more than any other match he has had to date. Cena winning almost doesn't seem to fit into where the WWE are looking to go, especially with Bray Wyatt.
It would also make refreshing viewing to see a young upstart knock off one of the top guys in the company. Make it happen, WWE.
The Shield vs. Kane and the New Age Outlaws
There was a recent twist in this storyline, as The Shield have turned babyface in the weeks leading up to the event.
In any event, their duel with Kane and The New Age Outlaws is an interesting and exciting addition to the card—that's for sure.
The Shield have lit up the ring in recent months, with each member of the group really coming to the fore in terms of showcasing their skills.
And given their recent turn, you would expect it to be cemented at WrestleMania 30 with a win. Like John Cena, there is little point in The Shield losing to Kane and The New Age Outlaws.
They won't split at the event. In fact, they will show immense solidarity. The new and improved version of The Shield will continue to grow at WrestleMania.
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H
As grudge matches go, they don't tend to get much bigger than this one.
Daniel Bryan and Triple H have had problems with each other since the middle of last year, when Triple H screwed Bryan out of the WWE Championship.
Since then, Bryan has become the most popular guy in the company and is in a place where he perhaps never imagined he would be.
This promises to be arguably the most anticipated match of the entire evening, with a genuine possibility of both men winning. However, one would expect Bryan to finally get his revenge on Triple H at WrestleMania 30 and pull double duty later in the night.
It has been a long time coming, but the arena will absolutely explode when Daniel Bryan gets the winning pinfall. In fact, it could be the reaction of the night.
Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
The match that is perhaps the most obvious to call but could still steal the entire show.
The Undertaker's last four or five WrestleMania performances have been unbelievably good, and he will likely continue that trend against Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar is the perfect foil for Taker in that they are both part-time and have experience with huge main event matches. But their styles are different, and Taker hasn't faced anyone of Lesnar's stature in quite some time.
Of course Undertaker will win and preserve the streak, but it promises to be a remarkable clash of styles. Paul Heyman will have his say as always, and there will be some near pinfalls for Lesnar.
But there is almost no doubt that it will be 22-0 come April 7.
The WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
Going on these predictions, we have already established that Daniel Bryan will be in this match against Randy Orton and Batista. And it is a real blessing because the match needs more star quality.
Randy Orton vs. Batista has really flattered to deceive. In fact, it has been a disaster. Both men have been unable to pull a top rivalry out of the bag, while Batista has even had to turn heel.
So Bryan's inclusion will be a masterstroke from the WWE and give him a chance to put on a show for his army of adoring fans once again.
However, it is this humble writer's opinion that Bryan will fall short in his ultimate goal, at least for WrestleMania 30. He will not win the championship because it is destined to be around the waist of Batista.
Even though his return to the company has been shocking, you would imagine the promise of handing Batista the belt is still planned.
Dare the WWE do it, after the reaction he got at the Royal Rumble? There is only one way to find out.
