Since I haven’t been fortunate enough to appear on the A1 Podcast for the last two shows due to illness, and the panel did their Wrestlemania predictions on Episode 225, I thought I’d get mine up here on the blog.
Without further adieu…
Pre-Show 5PM ET/2PM PT
WWE Tag Team Championship Match:
Tyson Kidd & Cesaro (w/ Natalya) vs. The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) vs. The New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston w/Xavier Woods) vs. Los Matadores (Diego & Fernando w/ El Torito)
Prime’s Pick: I’d like to see an Usos win here, but I heard earlier Jey Uso was hurt, so I’ll go with Tyson Kidd & Cesaro retaining.
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal:
Adam Rose vs. Big Show vs. Curtis Axel vs. Damien Mizdow vs. Darren Young vs. Erick Rowan vs. Fandango vs. Goldust vs. Heath Slater vs. Hideo Itami vs. Jack Swagger vs. Kane vs. Konnor vs. Mark Henry vs. Miz vs. Ryback vs. Sin Cara vs. Titus O’Neil vs. Viktor vs. Zack Ryder
Prime’s Pick: I actually wouldn’t mind seeing Curtis Axel win here to continue the Royal Rumble elimination gimmick. Mizdow will eliminate Miz. Not that I want him to win, but somehow I see Rowan winning this since WWE is somehow high on this guy.
Main Show 7PM ET/4PM PT
Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Title:
Bad News Barrett vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Luke Harper vs. R-Truth vs. Stardust
Prime’s Pick: Daniel Bryan wins here to quell a potential rioting crowd.
The Bellas (Nikki & Brie) vs. AJ Lee & Paige
Prime’s Pick: Paige pins Nikki despite dysfunction with AJ to set up Paige vs. Nikki for the Diva’s Title and Nikki’s swan song as The Bellas leave WWE in a month or so.
Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins
Prime’s Pick: Ugh, Orton will probably win.
United States Championship Match:
Rusev vs. John Cena
Prime’s Pick: I’d like Rusev to win here but we’ll probably get Super Cena overcoming the odds.
The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt
Prime’s Pick: Meh. Don’t really care. Undertaker to avenge his loss last year.
HHH vs. Sting
Prime’s Pick: Sting. I can’t imagine they’d make all this fuss over him showing up just to have him lose.
WWE World Heavyweight Title:
Brock Lesnar (w/Paul Heyman) vs. Roman Reigns
Prime’s Pick: I really don’t know. I don’t. Lesnar signed a new contract. Reigns was going to be the golden boy but has WWE gotten cold feet? I will go with Reigns just for sheer shock value with Heyman turning on Brock. But don’t be surprised to see another dominant Brock win.
So there you have it. Find out how many I got on Episode 226 of the A1 Podcast in a few days!
