WrestleMania XXVII Predictions
This is my super early prediction card for WrestleMania 27. This is assuming that the superstars that are currently in the WWE stay in the WWE. All of the story lines in this card are purely made up from my brain.
However, I feel that what I have come up with would be a great WrestleMania card for next year. Hope you enjoy. This card is open for all criticism and praise.
1) Legacy (c) vs. The Hart Dynasty for the Tag Team Championships
Here is how I see this storyline playing out:
Both Legacy and Hart Dynasty have Hall of Fame families. This could create a unique storyline where both teams think that their family was better than the others'. You could even have Ted DiBiase Sr. and Dusty Rhodes insult the Hart family and have some of the Harts retaliate.
Hart Dynasty would win this match to give them the gold that they rightfully deserve for their hard work in the tag team division. This match could see Tyson Kidd and Ted DiBiase launch their singles careers after a strong match-up like thike.
The WWE should give this match some time during WrestleMania, as both teams have great tag team talent and could put on a real show here unlike the tag team bouts at WrestleMania in the past.
Winner: Hart Dynasty
2) Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Big Show for the US Championship
This would be the classic David vs Goliath storyline that the WWE always pulls off.
I predict that the Big Show and the Miz will break off at some point during the year. Afterward, Big Show would take Miz's US championship.
Rey Mysterio would take it from Big Show sometime after that which would set the Big Show off, leading to this match at WrestleMania.
While this storyline is not the freshest thing that could happen, it would still be interesting with Mysterio and Big Show at late points in their careers.
I would have Mysterio keeping his title in this match to put David over Goliath and give the fans what they want.
Winner: Rey Mysterio
3) "Money in the Bank" Ladder Match
The Money in the Bank ladder match participants would be: The Miz, John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne, MVP, Shelton Benjamin, Kane, Matt Hardy, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre.
Many of these guys were in the MITB ladder match at WrestleMania 26, however none of them came out victorious.
None of these guys have ever won a world title with the exception of Kane for one day, so this match would be very unpredictable to the WWE fans.
I would have The Miz winning here, as he is closest to being a main-event superstar in this group. This would put The Miz in the main event for a long time and he could feud with Morrison to put both of them in the main event.
Winner: The Miz
4) Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Maryse vs. Michelle McCool for the Women's Title
Instead of putting all of the divas in a match, give the premier divas a triple threat match for the championship. This has worked in the past with Trish Stratus vs Lita vs Jazz...
The women's wrestlers of today aren't quite as talented as these three but it would still provide a good match.
I would have Beth Phoenix keep the title here and prove her dominance in the women's division. The fans love Beth because she will play any role the WWE wants her to and she does it well. Might as well have her succeed on the biggest stage of them all defending her championship.
Winner: Beth Phoenix
5) Jack Swagger vs. Sheamus
This match is what all fans would love to see at WrestleMania, two of the best young superstars that the WWE has to offer battling it out. Jack Swagger's technical wrestling ability vs Sheamus's pure strength.
The storyline would be easy to develop for this match. Jack Swagger and Sheamus have both been champions in the past year. Their feud could be fueled around who is the better young superstar of the WWE. Both are not too bad on the mic and both have great wrestling ability.
I would have Sheamus win here to put him on a new level. The WWE obviously loves this guy (along with HHH and HBK) and the best way to put him over is to win a WrestleMania match.
6) John Cena vs. CM Punk
This would be a great WrestleMania match that could steal the show. Have Superman face the evil villain.
This feud could get heated with CM Punk saying that the fans love Cena when they should love him. Then Cena would give one of his fiery emotional speeches on how Punk is afraid of him, ect...
It would be a lot like a Cena and Jericho feud except it's new and fresh.
I would have a stipulation to the match be that if Cena loses then he joins the SES. I would then have CM Punk defeat Cena at WrestleMania to put Punk over as a top heel and have an interesting story line with Cena for once when he joins the SES.
The WWE could do a lot with this match.
Winner: CM Punk
7) The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho
The Streak vs. Chris Jericho... There is no one more ready to face the Undertaker at WrestleMania than Chris Jericho. Like him or not, he is probably the most talented wrestler the WWE has today.
This feud could happen a number of different ways. Chris Jericho plays a cocky heel that thinks he's better than everyone else so it would be easy for him to think that he could end the streak. The WWE could turn this one into a classic.
I would have the streak live on in this match. While Chris Jericho is a viable opponent to end the streak, I don't see it ending at 18. I think the Undertaker will get to 20-0 and retire.
Winner: The Undertaker
8) Edge (c) vs. Christian for the World Heavyweight Championship
Here's how the story plays out:
Christian and Edge reunite but not as a tag team on Smackdown. Christian helps out Edge with his rivalry against Chris Jericho and Edge helps Christian win the IC title... ect.
Christian goes on to win the Royal Rumble. No one can believe it. Earlier that night Edge successfully defended his title. Edge tells Christian that it's always been his dream for both of them to be world champions on the different shows. Later, Christian attacks Edge and says that he is challenging Edge for the title at WrestleMania.
The storyline would be a lot like Matt vs. Jeff Hardy. Christian could talk about how Edge has gotten all the fame and attention and what not. This could be a very heated rivalry going into WrestleMania. At WrestleMania, Christian should win his first world title against his "brother" Edge.
9) HHH (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Batista
This could be a very interesting storyline to end WrestleMania...
HHH and Batista could be feuding and talking about who was the real dominant force in evolution... This is when Randy Orton enters the storyline and talks about how they were both meatheads while he was the crown jewel.
I would like this storyline to get very heated outside the ring and inside the ring with all three men. All three men are great wrestlers and would put on one hell of a main event for WrestleMania... I would have Randy Orton win the match and capture the title from HHH
After the match I could see all three men shaking hands out of respect and then the Evolution theme song plays. With Randy winning it is sort of a passing of the torch from HHH and Batista to Randy Orton.
After WrestleMania I could see Batista retiring and HHH taking some time off and letting Randy run with the gold and be the true breakout star of Evolution.
Winner: Randy Orton
