Wrestlemania 32 Predictions: Sting & Undertaker Will Collide The RCWR Show April 3, 2016 Editorials WrestleMania 32 is almost here ladies and gentlemen. With that being said, let’s get into some predictions for what is shaping up to be the biggest event of all time. WrestleMania 32 Pre-show/Kickoff card Total Divas vs. Team B.A.D and Blonde (10 Diva Tag Match) This match came to fruition pretty randomly, which means it was probably thrown together at the very last minute in an effort to get these Divas a match at the big event. Being that the WWE is so smitten with the Total Divas television show, I’ll go with that team to win this 10 Diva tag match. Winner: The Total Divas Usos vs. Dudley Boyz With this being the Dudley Boyz’s first WrestleMania match in over a decade, I can’t see a scenario where they don’t get the win for any other reason than nostalgia. Hopefully afterwards, they decide to give the fans a “GET THE TABLES!” moment, seeing as how they, along with the Hardy Boyz and Edge and Christian, made TLC matches famous at WrestleMania. Winner: Dudley Boyz Andre the Giant Battle Royal This is the third annual Andre the Giant Battle Royal. The first winner of this match was Cesaro. Last year, the Big Show won. In theory, the winner of this match should be someone preparing to get a major push, or someone who is getting a career achievement award of sorts. As of right now, there is no word on whether or not Braun Strowman is in this match, or any member of the Wyatt family for that matter since they’re dealing with some injuries. If he is though, I’ll go with him. If not, I’ll go with the man who holds the record for most elimination in Royal Rumble history. Winner: Braun Strowman if he’s in it, Kane if Strowman is not in it Kalisto vs. Ryback for the United States Championship I actually think this match could be very entertaining to watch. It probably won’t go too long, but the contrast in styles (high flying small guy vs. strong big guy) should provide some nice action, especially on Kalisto’s end. This match will probably be the highlight of the Pre-show festivities, and I look for the “little guy” to make a hell of a Mania debut, even though it won’t be on the main show. Winner: Kalisto Main Card New Day vs. League of Nations I can’t wait to see the commentary that the New Day provides for that crowd at AT&T Stadium. The greats always shine the brightest on the biggest stages, so expect New Day to be on their A game in front of a crowd that could eclipse 100,000 people. While the League of Nations are coming into their own, and could eventually prove to be a serious faction, the New Day are riding a high that few others are. They’re the hottest thing in the WWE today, so why ruin that by giving them a loss at WrestleMania? When all is said and done, that’s not what’s best for business. Winner: New Day AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho Jericho has routinely put guys over at WrestleMania. With this being Styles’ first Mania match, I’d be shocked if Jericho doesn’t put him over too. After all, Jericho did put Fandango over, in Fandango’s FIRST MATCH. AND NOT FANDANDO’S FIRST WRESTLEMANIA MATCH, FIRST MATCH IN THE WWE! So with all that being said, got to go with the Phenomenal One. Winner: AJ Styles Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks Look for these thee divas to go out there and attempt to steal the show. No short match here, as I think this one goes at least 15-20 minutes. In the end, I think “The Boss” Sasha Banks gets the win. She’s been underutilized thus far since being called to the main roster, and the fans let you know it every time she’s not in action. Charlotte is the crème of the crop in the Divas division, but it’s time to give Sasha some shine in a major way. Winner: Sasha Banks Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match This match appears to be replacing the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Ladder matches have been a staple of WrestleMania, and the Money in the Bank Ladder Match has created some of the more memorable moments at WrestleMania since its debut at WrestleMania 21. With guys like Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn making their Mania debut, look for this match to come down to the two of them at the top of the ladder fighting for the prized title. Who gets it? Winner: Sami Zayn Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose in a Street Fight I’m going to go out on a limb (albeit not a huge limb) and say that this match will be the match of the night. Lesnar and Ambrose are more than capable of putting on unbelievable performances in traditional matches, but with the added stipulation of a street fight, this one should be nothing short of brutal, sadistic and painful. While I think Ambrose will put up a great fight and continue to prove that he’s one of WWE’s brightest stars, I think it’s time for Lesnar to get back into the main event scene, and that starts with a win over Ambrose in front of a huge Dallas crowd. Winner: Brock Lesnar Triple H vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship The buildup for this one has been up and down, but I think the match will be stellar. Triple H is preparing to compete in his 20th WrestleMania, and he lives for these moments. But it’s pretty clear that the WWE has found their next “guy,” and it’s Roman Reigns. Reigns failed to get his WrestleMania moment last year when Seth Rollins swooped in to steal the show, and the title. But with no current Money in the Bank contract owner, look for Reigns to get his Mania moment in a win that, depending on the outcome of the next match, could send the Authority crumbling down. Winner: Roman Reigns Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon in Hell in a Cell (if Shane wins, he gets control of Raw and the Undertaker can no longer compete at WrestleMania) This is by far the hardest match to predict, which also makes it the most anticipated. On one hand, Raw definitely needs a new voice and direction, but on the other hand, can you really envision Undertaker’s final WrestleMania being a loss to Shane McMahon? All I know is that after seeing Shane once again throw caution to the wind, I expect some breathtaking spots and heart-pounding near counts throughout a match that will go a long way in determining the future of the WWE. Anything, literally anything, can happen in this one. But, I’ll go with what I know best in picking this match. Winner: Undertaker Note from The RCWR Show’s Lee Sanders: With what went down at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and Sting announcing his retirement I would like to stress to folks to not be surprised if he makes a cameo in this match to help Shane pick up the victory. The man said he has 1 more match in him but I don’t see it happening. Remember the Sting character…Where there is an injustice he is there to make right. Remember, the WrestleMania Pre-show officially starts at 5 PM on the WWE Network, and then, at 6 PM, it will be broadcast on the USA Network. Don’t miss any of the action. HAPPY WRESTLEMANIA!
