I been enjoying the empty arena shows for the most part. AEW has been consistently good each week and WWE as well when it’s not segments heavy they had some decent matches. With that said, WWE has been building to WrestleMania 36, I been loosely keeping up with their storylines but I have my predictions and favorites to win.
WrestleMania this year is broken up into a two night event on the WWE Network, Saturday and Sunday. And what some people don’t know is that WrestleMania has already been taped with multiple endings to matches so no one can spoil the outcome. I think that’s a good idea for the situation we are in.
Back in January Drew McIntyre won the Royal Rumble and that gave him an opportunity to face WWE Champion Brock Lesnar for the belt. Brock has been a dominating champion for a while now and it’s getting old. Entrance, suplex, three minute match… It’s time for the Chosen One to get gold.
Roman Reigns is out of action and won’t be facing Goldberg for the WWE Universal Championship, but Braun Strowman will be taking his place… This match could be good if Goldberg could keep up and not blow up or get winded. Braun doesn’t need a championship to get over but give it to him at least once.
Becky Lynch has been looking weak in her build with Shayna Baszler. Baszler distorted her opponents at Elimination Chamber, took a chunk out of Becky’s neck and so on. If Becky is gonna keep her RAW Women’s Championship she needs to knockout or submit her.
Bray Wyatt and John Cena… Haven’t seen John Cena in action for awhile and it shows having Big Match John not in the title picture. But facing Wyatt again or the Fiend, what’s gonna be different this time? Wyatt strong style and not sale Cena’s five moves, lights out and Wyatt wins. This match, anyone one of them can win.
Seeing Undertaker cutting promos feels like we are getting Biker Taker again. I’m looking forward to this match, AJ can keep up and hopefully a classic match comes from this. I do see Undertaker winning in the end.
I saw Edge return at the Royal Rumble and his return to Monday Night RAW has been handled perfectly. Heel Orton is great. The whole build up has been fire! But Edge needs a win after what Orton put him through.
Charlotte Flair going to NXT challenging their champion is something different and new and I liked it. This is kinda like a dream match between her and Rhea Ripley. I want Flair to win but Ripley besting her would make her stock shoot through the roof! It’s a toss up.
I Those are the matches I’m looking forward to. This two night event has like 18 matches I thought last years WM was long. Also, I like the empty arena setup or is it I don’t care if there’s a crowd. I watch a lot of wrestling on mute, I get more invested that way without the crowd chanting something stupid every few mins. I hope everyone enjoys Mania tonight and hopefully soon everything can go back to normal.
