The clock is ticking as the WrestleMania hour draws near. The thirty-first annual spectacle will take place at Levi’s Stadium – in the mystic shadows of the San Francisco Bay Area where anything can happen when the WWE comes around.
Will this year’s event go down as the greatest WrestleMania of all time? Probably not. The card is not the strongest card ever assembled by WWE but it is promising. There is hope to be found on the grand stage this year – we just have to look hard enough.
The eyes of old school WCW fans will be locked upon their forlorn hero as Sting takes part in his first ever WWE match. The one man who many believed (myself included) would never wrestle under the WWE banner. The WCW loyalist has finally arrived at the McMahon-run promotion.
The Undertaker will be coming back to perform once again at WrestleMania. The Deadman has not been seen in WWE since being defeated last year and having his legendary streak snapped at the hands of Brock Lesnar. One must wonder if a match involving The Undertaker will still have as much impact as years past?
John Cena looks to defend the honor of his country in a match that will surely play the patriot card to no end. The red, white, and blue blood of John Cena is pumping fierce as he heads into WrestleMania but can he overcome a super athlete?
And what about Brock Lesnar? Where does he go after WrestleMania? Does he remain with WWE or hit the road? The outcome of his championship match will surely provide some indication on the future direction of The Beast Incarnate.
With all that being said; this is an article designed to look at what should go down on March 29th, 2015 at the home of the 49ers. The time for WrestleMania has arrived and the world is ready to strap in and take the ride.
These as the top 10 things that should happen at WrestleMania:
10. The Next Generation Should be Displayed
This year, WrestleMania will feature many young WWE talents taking part in matches with already established superstars and legends. This is a good thing and should happen much more often within WWE as their chance to display the next generation of superstars is right now, this year.
Think back ten years to WrestleMania 21. John Cena and Batista were both involved in the main event matches of their brands and both men would leave the Staples Center as the WWE and World Heavyweight Champions, respectively. Much of the same should transpire this year.
9. Cesaro and Kidd Should Retain the Tag Titles
Whatever is decided for the WWE Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania will most likely take place on the pre-show. However, that doesn’t mean that we should overlook the tag team picture.
Cesaro and Tyson Kidd are working well together as the current WWE Tag Team Champions. Both men – especially Kidd – have been stuck in a rut for a while and the pairing of these two has proven to spark new fan interest. Hopefully, their title run is not short-lived as they should leave WrestleMania with the titles.
8. AJ and Paige Should Defeat The Bella Twins
Has anybody else grown tired of The Bella Twins? Nikki as Divas Champion is stale and what the hell is with Brie? Is she just Nikki’s sidekick now? How come she doesn’t want to be Divas Champion? Didn’t these two hate each other not long ago? That storyline was never actually closed.
Anyway, come WrestleMania, The Bella Twins will compete in a tag team match against AJ Lee and Paige – the two females who should have been given the lone Divas match at WrestleMania for the championship. Even though this match will entail a bathroom break or beer run, AJ and Paige should defeat The Bella Twins.
7. Mizdow Should Win the Battle Royal
The second annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal is set to take place at WrestleMania. The first match, which was won by Cesaro, provided him with an immediate push; even pairing him with Paul Heyman for a while before it all fizzled.
Needless to say, whoever emerges victorious this year should receive a push of their own. So, who should win? The obligatory “Big Show is the favorite” talk has already begun among the commentators, but everybody knows that Big Show never wins these matches. The winner of this year’s battle royal should be Damien Mizdow as he is completely over with the crowd and such a victory could really benefit his career.
6. Anyone Except Bryan Should Win the IC Title Match
The seven-man Intercontinental Championship Ladder match is bound to be something spectacular. The match could even steal the entire show. The recent hot-potato storyline with the title has been interesting and entertaining to watch and this match will definitely not disappoint.
The only thing about this match that comes off a little sour is the involvement of Daniel Bryan. The man who was in the main event last year and won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is now competing for the Intercontinental title despite no decline in popularity. The feeling here is that WWE had nothing else to do with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania.
Winning the Intercontinental Championship just doesn’t seem like a necessary step in the career of Daniel Bryan, as it will place him back in the mid-card where WWE feels he truly belongs. Come WrestleMania, anybody except for Daniel Bryan should win the IC Ladder match.
5. Seth Rollins Should Defeat Randy Orton
The Randy Orton/Seth Rollins storyline has played out nicely over the past few weeks. Even though Orton “rejoining” The Authority was clearly a ploy on the part of The Viper, having him flip-off Seth Rollins was a nice touch of attitude.
Randy Orton is a seasoned veteran in WWE and has seen his share of glory at WrestleMania, which is why having him go over on Rollins makes little sense. Seth Rollins is supposed to be the future of WWE, therefore he should defeat the guy who has been a main event player for the past decade and solidify his future status.
4. Rusev Should Defeat John Cena
There is a certain kind of feeling that is attached to this WrestleMania match – a feeling that John Cena is going to come out on top and emerge as the great American hero. Which is unnecessary but completely plausible.
Rusev already holds a victory over Cena at Fastlane. One of the problems in WWE is the concept of trading victories, especially when it comes to John Cena. Rusev doesn’t have to win clean but he has to win. What do they gain by having his first loss come at the hands of John Cena? Been there, done that. The bottom line here: Rusev should defeat John Cena.
3. Triple H Should Defeat Sting
There is a lot of excitement and anticipation around this match, as Sting is set to make his in-ring WWE debut against Triple H. The focus here lies on The Stinger, who is North of fifty and has not competed in some time. Hopefully, this match does not fall flat.
Surely there will be a number of people rooting for Sting but this is his match to lose. The underlining concept of WWE vs. WCW has added a lot of substance to this storyline but at the end of the day, WCW were the losers and this match should reflect that. While fans will enjoy the nostalgia of watching Sting wrestle, Triple H should defeat Sting at WrestleMania.
2. Bray Wyatt Should Defeat The Undertaker
The undefeated streak at WrestleMania is now over so that concept is no longer the predominate factor in a match involving The Undertaker. Bray Wyatt has completely and justly sold this match to the audience without The Undertaker ever appearing live on WWE television.
Last year, in his WrestleMania debut, Bray Wyatt was defeated by John Cena in a match by all accounts he should have won. This year, there is no reason for The Undertaker to claim a victory over Bray Wyatt. If he is presented as a defeated man, then allow him to be defeated once again – allow a young superstar to have the greatest victory of his career thus far. This year at WrestleMania, Bray Wyatt should defeat The Undertaker.
1. Roman Reigns Should Defeat Brock Lesnar
While the future of Brock Lesnar remains uncertain, the future of Roman Reigns is clear; he is set to become the next big superstar in WWE. There are still many naysayers that claim he is not quite ready but as it would appear, the time is now.
Therefore, if Roman Reigns is the future of the company, do not prolong the inevitable. Sure, people will be angry with him as champion but it’s time to shift gears in WWE and head in a new direction, which is why at WrestleMania, Roman Reigns should defeat Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
