Wrestlemania is WWE’s biggest event of the year, as tons of superstars of the past and present come to celebrate the annual event. This year is going to be a special one as it’s set to be the 30th annual Wrestlemania.  The big event is set to take place this Sunday April 6th, 2014 at 7/6c. Tons of superstars will be on hand like Dolph Ziggler, John Cena, and The Undertaker to name a few. One of the biggest names to appear on Wrestlemania this year is the host,  WWE Hall of Famer, who hadn’t been on WWE TV since 2007, Hulk Hogan. Millions of viewers around the world tune into the event every year because its so unpredictable, and while that may be I’m going to give it my best shot to go through the list of matches for this year’s show and say who I think will win each match. Are you ready for some predictions? Well then let’s get started…

1. A Fatal 4 Way match for the WWE Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Los Matadores vs. The Real Americans vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel:

While this match will be on the FREE preshow you can watch on WWE.com or WWE’s Youtube channel, it’s definitely going to be an exciting one. With 4 tag teams in the ring at the same time it’s going to be pure chaos and excitement, but this will be one of the easier matches to determine the winner of. Los Matadores has some exciting moves, but that’s about where it ends with them. The Real Americans have been fighting for weeks and Wrestlemania 30 maybe their breaking point. Ryback and Curtis Axel don’t stand a chance unless WWE wants to give the championship to a team that no one really cares for. The Usos are arguably one of the most exciting tag teams in the WWE today and I’ll be shocked if they drop the championship at Mania.

Winner: Jimmy and Jey Uso (The Usos) retain.

2. Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for the Divas Championship: AJ Lee (c) vs Tamina Snuka vs Brie Bella vs Nikki Bella vs Eva Marie vs Emma vs Summer Rae vs Natalya vs Rosa Mendes vs Aksana vs Alicia Fox vs Cameron vs Naomi

10 divas in the ring at the same time to me is just a disaster waiting to happen. This should have been a battle royal for so many reasons. While I’m happy that the divas are getting their moment on the big stage, I just can’t get behind a match like this. A few of these girls shouldn’t even be in this match since they barely have the wrestling skills or the ability to put on a good singles match. Honestly as negative as I am towards this match I really hope they prove me wrong. As for who wins Eva Marie, Emma, Cameron, and Summer Rae don’t have a chance. They’re too new to the division and while a few are talented it’s just not their time right now. I don’t see Rosa winning mostly for the fact that she’s hardly been seen on TV in weeks. Alicia Fox and Aksana have mostly been used a jobbers for months. Either of the Bella twins has a chance, same with Natalya because of them all being in the title picture for months now. The odds on favorites at least to me to win the Divas Championship though is between Champion AJ Lee, her sidekick/bodyguard Tamina, and the red hot Naomi. While she’s facing 9 other girls for the championships and the odds are against her, she’s still the longest reigning Divas champ for a reason.

Winner; AJ Lee retains her championship.

3. Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: 30-man battle royal for the André the Giant Memorial Trophy:

For those who don’t know what a battle royal is, when a certain amount of competitors, in this case 30, are all in the ring at the same time and must eliminate each other by pushing the person over the top rope. This continues until there is one person left standing who will be declared the winner. There are currently 27 confirmed superstars for the match so which I’m guessing will mean there might be 3 surprise participants. The 27 confirmed right now are Alberto Del Rio, Big E, Big Show, Brad Maddox, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Fandango,Drew McIntyre, Goldust, The Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, R-Truth, Santino Marella, Sin Cara,Titus O’Neil, and Zack Ryder. It’s honestly a toss-up who will win this match, but for the sake of this I’m picking who I want to win.

Winner: The Show-off Dolph Ziggler wins.

4. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns) vs. Kane and the New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn & Road Dogg):

While Kane is the big red monster, and the New Age Outlaws are 6 time Tag Team Champions, The Shield is the team to cheer for right now. This will be an exciting match match, but the winner is obvious. The Shield is hot right now and with one of the biggest breakout stars in Roman Reigns with them they can’t lose.

Winner: The Shield. 

  1. John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt:

This is a grudge match as Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt family have been costing Cena matches for weeks now, so Cena will be looking to get his revenge. The big question is, will Cena be able to beat the seemingly unbeatable Bray Wyatt. Wyatt seems to be winning when it counts and while Cena does have the Superman nickname, I think Wyatt might have found Cena’s kryptonite in this match. It’ll be an interesting match for sure, but as for who the winner will be well.. Maybe you should Follow the Buzzards..

Winner: Bray Wyatt.

6. The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar:

Let’s be honest Lesnar may be known as ‘The Beast’, but The Undertaker doesn’t have a 21-0 streak at Wrestlemania because he’s easy to beat. While some people may like for you to think that the match will come down to the wire and anyone could win, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. If the streak hasn’t ended already, it’s not about to end to one of the guys who’s barely around.

Winner: The streak continues, Undertaker wins.

7. Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H (Winner gets put into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match):

I think besides the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match, this might be the match everyone is wanting to see. Daniel Bryan is probably the hottest superstar on the roster right now with his Yes movement, and breaking the boundaries attitude he really should win this match, but with Triple H you never know. Triple H is the COO and one of the toughest superstars to beat. Triple H will do everything in his power to make sure that Daniel Bryan doesn’t win this match considering he snapped when Daniel Bryan took over RAW to make this match happen. It’s going to be a war that the world is waiting to see, but if Daniel Bryan doesn’t win I wouldn’t be surprised if the crowd literally rioted in the stadium, considering back in the royal rumble when Bryan didn’t enter the Rumble the crowd literally booed the rest of the PPV.

Winner; Daniel Bryan by a beard.

8. Randy Orton(c) vs. Batista vs. Bryan or Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship:

If/When Daniel Bryan makes it into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match it’s going to be an interesting one. I can hear the Yes chants now if Bryan is in the match and how loud the chants would be if he won. Orton has been the champion for months now, but it’s time for his reign to end. It’s been a boring one and it’s time for a new champion to take over. If Batista wins there will be a riot, considering when he won the Royal Rumble he practically got booed out of the building. If Triple H somehow makes his way into the match he might just win, but to me there’s only one winner. Yes Yes Yes!

Winner: Daniel Bryan! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Those are my predictions and I’m so excited to see this PPV take place and to see the surprises that will go down. With Hulk Hogan hosting, and Stone Cold Steve Austin set to appear, along with the already huge matches it’s going to be an unforgettable show. So did you agree with my predictions? Disagree? Who do you think will win? Let me know in the comments below!

You can check out Wrestlemania on PPV when it airs live his Sunday April 6, 2014 at 7pm EST.
