WWE Wrestlemania 27 Predictions: The Undertaker's Streak Will Stay Alive
Wrestlemania 27 is almost here and this could be the biggest one of them all since Wrestlemania 20. In this spectacular event, it features three main-event matches:
The Miz(c) vs. John Cena for the WWE Championship.
Edge (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Triple H vs. Undertaker with the Undertaker's Wrestlemania undefeated streak on the line!
Other matches include: Michael Cole w/ Jack Swagger vs. Jerry "the King" Lawler with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the special referee.
Sheamus defends the U.S. Championship against Daniel Bryan.
CM Punk takes on Randy Orton.
Big Show, Kane, Vladimir Kozlov and Santino Marella take on the Corre (Wade Barrett, Ezekiel Jackson, Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater).
Snooki, Trish Stratus and John Morrison vs. Dolph Ziggler and Lay-Cool.
Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes.
Did I mention The Rock is hosting Wrestlemania and has already got himself involved in the WWE Title match?
Here are my predictions for this huge event!
Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes
Rey Mysterio has been a thorn in Cody's side for a long time. Rhodes had his nose broken by Mysterio's leg brace a while back and Cody is looking for his revenge. Cody and his father, WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, have already started their revenge on Rey by attacking him and ripping off his mask in front of the entire world.
Who will have their revenge at the big dance?
Rey Mysterio will defeat Rhodes.
Mysterio will be even more motivated to defeat Rhodes after having his mask ripped off. This will be a classic match and Rhodes will be on the attack from the get go. Rey Mysterio's speed and agility advantage will be a big factor and he will hit a 619 for the victory.
U.S. Championship Match: Sheamus (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
Sheamus and Bryan have been feuding for weeks leading up to this showdown. Sheamus had claimed he would retire if he had lost his U.S. title match on Monday Night Raw a few weeks ago, but prevailed and won the title. This should be a close contest because Sheamus has the strength advantage, but Bryan has the speed and technical skills advantage.
In the end, Sheamus's size and strength will help him get the victory.
Bryan will try to make Sheamus tap, but the Irishman won't let it happen. He will hit the bicycle kick to Bryan to get the victory. Sheamus has been on a mission since vowing to retire a few weeks ago and won't lose the title that he just gained.
Eight Man Tag Match
The Corre have been claiming to own Smackdown since the day they got there. They have attacked like wild dogs on the likes of the Big Show, Kane, Vladimir Kozlov and Santino Marella. Wade Barrett leads this young team that looks motivated to take over Friday nights. It won't be an easy task at Wrestlemania though.
Big Show has been attacked several times by the Corre and will be looking for his revenge. The same can be said for Kane, Marella and Kozlov. The big size advantage goes to Big Show and Kane and that will factor in the outcome. Barrett and the Corre have been way too cocky for their own good and that will be their downfall.
Kane and Big Show hit chokeslams to win the match.
Six Person Tag Match
John Morrison, Trish Stratus and Snooki take on Lay-Cool and Dolph Ziggler in this six person showdown. Trish and Snooki have had their hands full the last few weeks and look to take out their frustrations on Lay-Cool. Vicki Guerrero will probably be at ringside for this contest so she will be a factor. I think Kelly Kelly comes out to even out the odds and contain Vicki from interfering.
Morrison has the speed advantage over Ziggler, but Ziggler always finds a way to even out the odds by cheating. Snooki has no ring experience at all, but she likely won't be asked to wrestle too much here. Trish is the veteran and she will be in the ring for the majority of the contest when either Michelle McCool or Layla are in the ring.
Morrison, Snooki and Trish will get the victory here and Snooki will get the pinfall. Trish will hit Stratisfaction on McCool and Snooki will get the cover and the win for her team.
Michael Cole vs. Jerry "The King" Lawler
This feud has been building for a long time. Michael Cole has tried to make life miserable for Lawler and will have Jack Swagger in his corner. Swagger has already attacked King several times and Cole has been egging him on for awhile. King obviously has the ring experience, but how much of a factor will Swagger play? What will help King is that "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will be the special referee and will make sure order is restored.
He won't let Swagger interfere or let Cole use dirty tactics.
Lawler will finally get his revenge and end this feud. Lawler will be plenty motivated to tear apart Cole, and with Austin as the ref, he will be able to do so. Lawler hits the piledriver for the victory on Cole and the gets the win. Swagger will try to interfere, but Austin will give him a Stone Cold Stunner for his efforts. Michael Cole will also get a Stunner at some point during the match.
Stone Cold will celebrate with Lawler at the end with some Steveweisers.
CM Punk vs. Randy Orton
The CM Punk and Randy Orton feud has been building for months. Orton has been attacked by members of Nexus on several occasions, but finally will be able to take on Punk without interference. Orton took out each member by giving them the dreaded "punt kick" and defeated them so that they will not be able to interfere in this match. Punk has vowed to teach Orton a lesson, but will have his hands full.
These two absolutely despise each other ever since Punk attacked Orton at the Royal Rumble. Punk has tried to get into Orton's head, but it hasn't worked so far. How will Punk defeat Orton without the assistance of the Nexus? Punk will use his head and force Orton into a mistake.
Many people think Orton will have his revenge without any Nexus members interfering, but I think Punk will find a way to win. Punk will take advantage of an Orton mistake and hit the GTS for the victory.
World Heavyweight Championship: Edge (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Alberto Del Rio won the Royal Rumble in January and chose to challenge Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. This feud has also been building for quite sometime. Edge has been attacked several times by Del Rio and his bodyguard, Brodus Clay. Luckily for Edge, his best friend Christian has returned and will be in Edge's corner at Mania.
Del Rio attacked Christian last year and put him out of action for months, but Christian returned in February to help out his buddy Edge. There is no love lost between these two.
I have seen this too many times where the champion has his best friend in his corner at Wrestlemania and loses the match. Christian will turn his back on Edge and cost him the championship. Del Rio will put on the arm bar and make Edge tap. Alberto Del Rio will be the new Heavyweight Champion in his rise to stardom. He will get his big push and be the new face of Friday Night Smackdown.
Undertaker vs. Triple H (No Holds Barred)
Undertaker puts his Wrestlemania "Streak" on the line in this epic showdown. They have clashed at Wrestlemania before at Wrestlemania X-Seven, and Undertaker prevailed. Undertake and Triple H have so much respect for each other, but this will be a war. Shawn Michaels will make an appearance here. Will he help Triple H?
Both wrestlers returned last month and immediately started to feud and build this rivalry. Shawn Michaels has shared his thoughts on both men and gave reasons on why either man could win. He missed his chance to end the streak last year after Undertaker defeated him for the second year in a row. Will Michaels look to help out his friend and end the streak, or will he keep himself out of the match and not interfere?
The end of the line looks near for both wrestlers, but they will put on an epic match. Undertaker will look to use his size and speed advantage, but Triple will look to get into the "Deadman's" head.
Undertaker will keep his "Streak" alive. He will defeat Triple H and give him the Tombstone for the victory. Both Triple H and Undertaker will be fired up for this match and they will not disappoint.
This match will steal the show.
WWE Championship: The Miz (c) vs. John Cena
In what is the most anticipated match on the card, The Miz defends his title against John Cena. This rivalry has been hot since the Miz attacked Cena at the Royal Rumble and cost him a shot at winning it. Cena and the Miz have traded blows and promos with each other ever since. The most interesting part about this match is the fact that the "most electrifying man in sports entertainment" got himself involved in the feud.
The Rock returned in February and immediately cut a promo on both competitors. He called out John Cena; Cena responded with a rap. the Rock responded with a promo of his own by mocking Cena's rapping. The Miz didn't take too kindly to being left out of this war of words so he cut a promo on both of them. Last Monday night, the Rock returned live and immediately he and the Miz traded blows.
The Rock was attacked by Alex Riley and the Miz. Riley got tossed out then the Rock gave the Miz the People's Elbow. After that, Cena was waiting and gave the Rock the Attitude Adjustment. This makes things very interesting for Wrestlemania.
How will the Rock involve himself in this match?
John Cena will regain the WWE Championship and win the match. It has been way too long since Cena has worn the gold around his waist and the Miz's reign is about to end. The Rock will come out during the match, with the referee knocked out, and attack both guys. We will see at least one Rock Bottom and one People's Elbow for sure. It will be a close contest, but Cena will hit the Attitude Adjustment to get the win.
