WrestleMania 29 Predictions

The Showcase of the Immortals is only a few hours away.  Below I share my thoughts and predictions on tonight's show.  I will be Live Tweeting the event from @S_ATL_Wrestling as well.

  • WWE Champion The Rock vs John Cena--Cena will get the win here.  It's the only thing that makes sense to me.  I am willing to bet you will see a bit of an edge from John Cena, but I doubt a full-fledged heel turn will happen tonight.
  • The Undertaker vs CM Punk--Super Cool Ski Instructor would say this, "If you think CM Punk is going to beat The Undertaker tonight you're going to have a bad time."  They will do the usual false finishes, but I don't see any way at all that CM Punk breaks The Streak.
  • Triple H vs Brock Lesnar (No Holds Barred, Triple H must retire if he loses)--It would be idiotic to have Brock lose to Triple H.  I'm really up in the air on this one though especially with Brock's previous victory in the feud.  Trips is a part-timer though so the retirement stip doesn't really give me a lean one way or the other either.  I think Triple H avenges his SummerSlam 2012 loss and beats Lesnar in a brutal slugfest.
  • World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger--To me, this match is really interesting because the outcome seems much less obvious than the WWE Championship or Streak matches.  I believe the World Heavyweight Title will be welcomed to "Jack Swagger's America" tonight.
  • Randy Orton/Sheamus/Big Show vs The Shield--One of the faces (most likely Orton) may turn tonight.  That being said, I'm saying the face team beats The Shield with no one turning.
  • Ryback vs Mark Henry--Ryback defeats Mark Henry in Hossmageddon
  • WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No vs Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston--Team Hell No retains.  I think WWE is close to pulling the trigger on Dolph and I don't think giving him the tag straps helps that at all.  I'm personally kind of over the whole Team Hell No thing, but it will keep running until they figure out something interesting to do with the Tag Team Titles.
  • Chris Jericho vs Fandango--I would be surprised to see Fandango lose his big WrestleMania debut.  I believe Jericho is taking a little time off after the show as well and has already said he will be back.  Fandango goes over and Jericho will return down the road and get his revenge.
  • Tons of Funk and the Funkadactyls vs Team Rhodes Scholars and the Bella Twins--This is the exact kind of match the faces always seem to win at WrestleMania.  Tons of Funk and the Funkadactyls take this one.
  • Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs The Miz (Interactive Pre-Show Match)--Wade Barrett retains. 
I said previously that I think tonight's show will be "sneaky good."  Now that WrestleMania Sunday is here, I feel no different.  Let's hope that it is a good show at least.  We will see shortly.
