Y2J will survive, HBK won't, at Wrestlemania.

If you look at the events that have transpired in the past few weeks you would be dead sure that Edge is really on a role as of now. Since his return the Rated R Superstar has won the Royal Rumble and is seemingly on the right track to dessimate Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania.

The WWE has done a very good job of portraying Edge as seemingly unstoppable at the moment. Chris Jericho’s weekly spear dose is a testimony to that. Y2J seems like a weak champion walking into Wrestlemania. Not because of his in ring abilities but because of the way he has been treated over the past few weeks.

This situation reminds me of a very similar storyline 2 years ago. Randy Orton was the WWE champion then and he too walked into Wrestlemania as a weak champion. Nobody gave him a chance. The result? He punted HHH in the head and pinned the Rumble winner, John Cena to retain his title.

Now, I would admit that the WWE has done a very decent job in making us believe that Y2J would not be walking out of Phoenix the World Champion but that’s not gonna happen!

Y2J will most definitely walk out of Wrestlemania 26, still the World Champion.


First of all, as much as I love to see Egde in action, he is at his best when he works as a heel. A baby face Edge doesn’t suit his persona of the “Ultimate Opportunist.” A loss will give Edge the reason to turn on the fans once again!

Secondly, an Edge victory is highly predictable and virtually nobody is expecting Jericho to win. That’s because ever since Edge got injured and Y2J turned on his tag team partner, virtually everyone knew that Edge would meet Jericho on his return. The return angle is working great and Edge should win the title on the next PPV but not at wrestlemania.

Thirdly, a Wrestlemania main event victory for Y2J at this stage may seem unlikely, but it makes a lot of sense to me. Y2J’s victory in the chamber match seemed more out of sheer good luck as he pinned a virtually unconscious Undertaker. A victory will solidify his status as a main eventer.

Now, moving on to HBK-Undertaker.

As much as it pains for me to admit, the chances of Undertaker’s streak getting over are next to none. The streak itself is so big that it would be wrong to break it.

That means that HBK will be hanging up his boots for good after Wrestlemania.

Undertaker’s streak is legendary and he is entitled to retire undefeated at the grandaddy of ‘em all.

However, seeing HBK going out on losing terms just doesn’t seem fair. The former 4 time world champion will give us the best of himself on the biggest night of the year. This was ensured when their match was made a no disqualification, no countout match. HBK on a ladder, one last time. No freaking doubt about it!

So there you have it! Two instant classics! Mark my words, Y2J will walk out of Wrestlemania, still the World Heavyweight Champion. On the contrary, the show will stop for the "Showstopper"!

What do You think will happen?
