Wrestlemania 35 Predictions

Welcome to my predictions for the show of shows… Wrestlemania 35

With a staggering 16 matches on the card over a (supposedly) 7 and a half hour PPV, it is going to be a long post.

Let’s get into the predictions.

As a special Wrestlemania 35 treat, my predictions are available for FREE. If you wish to see my predictions for upcoming PPV’s, please support me on Patreon: https://squaredcircle.ie/support


NON-TITLE MATCHES

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Prediction: Otis…Cause why not?!

 

Wrestlemania Women’s Battle Royal
Prediction: Sonya Deville. Sonya is a fantastic competitor that is kinda brought down by Mandy Rose. A heel turn would work in her favor.

 

Singles Match
AJ Styles vs Randy Orton
Prediction: This has been a really interesting fued while there was only 2 segments involving the two of them. Both are hard-hitting guys that and with the promos being very much back and forth, it’s difficult to decide. Randy Orton to win.

 

Singles Match (Farewell Match)
Kurt Angle vs Baron Corbin
Prediction: This hasn’t been given a bigger fanfare as it should have been as this match should have been against John Cena, but since we do not know what the heck John Cena is doing, we can only assume that this match is legitimate but I would like to think that this match is not going to be Kurt’s last match. I’d say that this is going to be the start of something bigger, but before he gets to that, he is going to win over Baron Corbin. Kurt to win.

 

Singles Match
Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre
Prediction: This is set to be a good ‘slobber knocker’ in the words of JR, but these are two heavyweights who should be in the Universal Title picture along with Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar. But a simple fight between the two of them is not disappointing though. Roman to get another WM victory.

 

Falls Count Anywhere Match
Shane McMahon vs The Miz
Prediction: This should have been an easy match to predict but given that Shane McMahon is just the best professional wrestler in the world, I wonder if WWE is going to run with that storyline and give Shane the big victory. With The Miz absoluetly destorying SAnitY on SmackDown Live this week, you can see that he could defeat Shane quite easily, but I feel that there is going to be some underhanded tactics from Shane to claw out the victory. Shane to win.

 

No Holds Barred Match
Triple H vs Batista
Prediction: Triple H has a habit of losing at Wrestlemania with 13 losses on the show of shows, so it would only seem fitting that Batista wins this match. We know that on Monday, there won’t be a segment for it and we can more than confirm that Batista is not going to sign a new contract with the company. This is just a Wrestlemania spectacle. Batista to win!

TITLE MATCHES

Singles Match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Buddy Murphy (C) vs Tony Nese
Prediction: Buddy Murphy cannot be stopped and I cannot see him losing this title any time soon. Buddy to retain.
Fatal 4-Way for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
Bayley & Sasha Banks (C) vs The IIconics vs Beth Phoenix & Natayla vs Nia Jax & Tamina
Prediction: The compeitors are a bit of a mixed bag and while I would like to see Natty & Beth winning it, I don’t see Beth having another match after Mania. The IIconics to become the NEW Tag Team Champions!
Singles Match for the United States Championship
Samoa Joe (C) vs Rey Mysterio
Prediction: This should be one of the more ‘fun’ matches as it would be Rey’s first singles match at  Wrestlemania since WM28 (Against Cody Rhodes) – Samoa Joe is a powerhouse in himself and I can see him putting Mysterio to sleep. Joe to retain.
Fatal 4-Way for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
The Usos (C) vs Ricochet & Aleister Black vs The Bar vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev
Prediction: [Spoiler] Black & Ricochet came up short against War Raiders at NXT TakeOver: New York and it would be great for them to claim some good now that they are coming into the Main Roster. If they do not win, I would like to see Usos retaining for now.
Tag Team Match for the RAW Tag Team Championships
The Revival (C) vs Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins
Prediction: This match came out of nowhere… Like who booked this?? I want the ultimate upset and have Zack & Curt win the match.
Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship
Bobby Lashley (C) vs Finn Bálor
Prediction: The Demon is in play here for the first time since SummerSlam 2016 and it couldn’t have been at a better event. Finn needs to win and not be a transitional champion. Here is hoping that he holds the title for a good few month (Maybe till Summerslam or after it)
Singles Match for the Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar (C) vs Seth Rollins
Prediction: I cannot see Brock coming out of this match with the red strap. Seth has beaten Brock before (Through Roman Reigns) at WM31. Should be a very interesting match. Seth to win.
Singles Match for the WWE Championship
Daniel Bryan (C) vs Kofi Kingston
Prediction: The boyhood dream for Kofi is going to be happening tonight and I would love to see Kofi hanging onto the title for a very long time. Daniel has been an amazing champion, but the whole gimmick that he has passed! Kofi to win.
Triple Threat for the RAW & SmackDown Women’s Championships
Ronda Rousey (C) vs Charlotte Flair (C) vs Becky Lynch
Prediction: I can see this being an all-out decimation from all three women but it would send being a
