WrestleMania is the Grandest Stage of Them All for any performer in the wrestling industry and many wrestlers work tirelessly on the independent scene for decades before making it there, aiming for their signature 'WrestleMania moment', with the last incarnation being the first appearance for beloved indy darlings such as Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and AJ Styles.
With that being said, the only greater honour than a WrestleMania moment is to win a championship on the Grandest Stage of Them All, as many significant championship victories by men such as Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, John Cena and Seth Rollins go down in history as the greatest of all Mania moments and helped cement their legacies among the greats in history. Although championships do not make or break a wrestler's career (take Mick Foley or The Undertaker for example), WWE giving a performer the ball and the chance to run with it in the form of a Mania championship victory can be the difference between a regular superstar or one who will go down in the history books as a legend in the business.
WrestleMania 33, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, promises to be a true Showcase of the Immortals, with hopefully a healthy roster and another fantastic NXT Takeover. Between now and WrestleMania 33, however, many things can change: new signees, NXT call ups, returns and, as witnessed in the lead up to this year's 'Mania, the injury plague can strike again. Here are the men and women who we believe will have the honour and responsibility of walking out of WrestleMania weekend with championship gold, with the goal of carrying the WWE brand to new heights, and hopefully garner the respect of the fans and their peers in the process.
8 NXT Champion: Zack Sabre Jr.
7 NXT Tag Team Champions: TMDK
6 NXT Women's Champion: Nia Jax
5 WWE Intercontinental Champion: Samoa Joe
4 United States Champion: Sami Zayn
3 WWE Tag Team Champions: Enzo Amore & Big Cass
2 WWE Women's Champion: Sasha Banks
1 WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Seth Rollins
The Shield Triple Threat has been a story two years in the making since Seth turned on his brothers, and whether WWE likes it or not, Seth will return as the biggest baby face in the company once his injury has healed. This sets up the most anticipated match in recent WWE history, which will see a universally hated Roman Reigns defend against his two former brothers. After a 30 minute hard hitting classic, fans will see the return of the Curb Stomp as Rollins pins Reigns at Mania again, making him the biggest babyface in recent memory, and giving fans another epic Seth Rollins moment.
