Wrestling Reviews: WrestleMania 35 Review (March 7th 2019)

Originally Written March 7th 2019 – Finished March 9th 2019

Update: I wrote majority of this review on the day of WrestleMania, I finished writing everything last night and added the pictures today. Also this review is a little different because I wrote it as I was watching it so a lot of the stuff written was my reaction to what was happening and me slightly commenting it, along with giving my thoughts on the match too.

Talk about an opener, Yolanda Adams at WrestleMania singing America The Beautiful!?………nice!! I don’t know how they got Yolanda to be there, but that’s pretty cool I won’t lie.

Disclaimer: I’m watching WrestleMania a little later, it’s about 8:30pm my time as i’m watching, it won’t be when this goes up but yeah……also i’m skipping the kickoff, hopefully it was good, i’ll probably go back to it later and watch, but let’s continue on with the show!!

Main Show: Opener

Alexa Bliss has arrived to Mania, letting us know that on a night like this we don’t need a host, we need a goddess and that if she wants a WrestleMania moment she can just get one with a snap of a finger.

and with a snap of a finger (Bliss’s finger) we get a surprise appearance from Mr Hulk Hogan, well alright then, not a bad surprise…….it was nice seeing you Hogan

After Hogan “messed up the name” of the arena and said what he wanted to say, he and Bliss do his famous Hulkamania poses and then we get the advocate of Brock Lesnar walking down the long WrestleMania ramp heading to the ring……..you know I gotta say Heyman walking to the ramp to Hulk Hogan’s theme, was actually pretty funny and his walk actually went with music, just wanted to point that out.

A livid Heyman, isn’t quite too happy about his client Brock Lesnar not being the main event of the show……..stating that him and Brock will get on a jet to Las Vegas and find appreciation there.

Looks like we’re getting the Universal Championship title match first, very interesting……..also Seth’s titantron effect for Brock Lesnar, the whole “Beast Slayer thing” was pretty great, nice effect!!

Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar (Universal Championship)

Brock Lesnar wastes no time he goes straight after Seth once he gets close to the ring………Lesnar starts the match in control, giving him an F’5 outside of the ring, he then launches Seth onto the apron LED lights……the match still has yet to start, he also sends him over one of the announcers table……..

Not even giving him time to recover as Seth’s tossed all around the outside of the ring, Brock even launching him towards one of the german announcers……..so far this match is looking more on the side Brock and less on the side of Rollins…………

Rollins is being badly beaten and bruised as Lesnar hits 3 German suplex’s, Lesnar tries to go for an F’5 Seth escapes and pushes him towards the ropes where Brock collides with the ref, having him fall outside of the ring, giving Rollins the chance to take advantage and how does he take advantage you ask!? He does so with a low blow to Lesnar, which I knew the moment the ref was out of the ring, he’d do………..

Rollins then catches Brock with a kick and 3 Black Out Stomps…….WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT, NO FLIPPING WAY (I had to go back and watch that all again because I was just so…….I couldn’t believe it) HOLY SMOKES, 3 BLACK OUT STOMPS TO THE BEAST THAT IS BROCK LESNAR, SETH FREAKING ROLLINS SLAYED THE BEAST, WHAT!!

Thoughts: I mean Seth said whether he leaves WrestleMania in one piece or he couldn’t stand and what not he was not leaving WrestleMania without the Universal title and what do you know……..he pulled through on that promise…………..

AMAZING OPENER, FINALLY!! NO MORE OF THE LONG WAIT TO SEE THE MAIN TITLE OF MONDAY NIGHT RAW………i’m speechless, seriously can’t believe that happened and i’ll tell you as well, neither did Paul Heyman or the Beast Brock Lesnar HAHA!!

AJ Styles Vs Randy Oron:

Nice start on the match between Styles and Orton, Randy tries to end the match early by attempting and early RKO, which Styles avoids. Outside of the ring Styles catches Randy with a forearm smash.

Randy later gains control of the match for a good while, Styles comes back with a good amount of momentum, soon taking control of the match, Styles tries to go for a Styles clash, but Randy escapes it, Randy then tries to hit an RKO, but AJ dodges it, he then comes off the ropes and gets caught with a power slam by Orton.

Styles locks in his calf crusher to Randy, who tries to avoid it, but ends up getting caught with it anyway, he then struggles to get out of it for a bit, but eventually does when he grabs the ropes of the ring forcing Styles to break the submission.

Style with the target on Randy’s knee, he then goes for his Phenominal forearm finisher, but stops and senses Randy as he tried to attempt his RKO on him, Styles then goes for a 450 splash, goes to pin Randy, but he kicks out, Randy with a superplex to Styles.

Randy catches Styles with an uppercut almost knocking him out of the ring………Randy sets up for his RKO after chatting up with the crowd, doesn’t land it the first time, but goes for it again and you think he would’ve gotten the 3 count, but Styles kicks out of it…….

Styles with a pale kick to Orton after escaping from what looked like was an attempt at a serious RKO from the tope rope. Styles hits a Phenomenal forearm to Randy outside of the ring, back in thr ring, Randy goes for an RKO, Styles escapes it then hits his the Phenomenal forearm off the apron to win the match.

Thoughts: Not a bad match, I thought both Styles and Randy performed well, there were some nice moments along with some surprising, but overall it was quite a decent match, I enjoyed it.

The Usos Vs The Bar Vs Rusev & Shinsuke Vs Ricochet & Aleister Black (Smackdown Live Tag Team Championships)

Match is underway, a lot is happening everyone’s getting some shots in on each other, Ricochet with an impressive launch to Cesaro, I can’t even describe what it was to you guys, but it was pretty cool though, Cesaro catches Ricochet with an uppercut to Ricochet then goes on a swing spree with him, while Sheamus hits every opponent who tries to get involved in the match with forearm chest hits, pretty good moment.

He then locks in a sharpshooter to Ricochet, Jimmy now in the ring catches Cesaro with a super kick, breaking the submission. Aleister with a nice moonsault to Rusev, goes for a pin, but the pin gets broken up by Shinsuke………Ricochet with a shooting star press to Shinsuke to save Aleister from being pinned.

The Bar I have to admit have been pretty impressive in this match, the moment they get advantage they are on top of it!! We just got a whole lot of superstars in the ring after what looked like a superplex powerbomb or something happened and for some reason Ricochet is the only one not affected by it, how in the world!? I have no idea, but it was very impressive. (Moment)

Oh my goodness, that was SUPER CLOSE!!! Ricochet almost won the tag team titles for him and Black…………I got a delayed reaction to it, because I wasn’t sure if it was happening or not, but everyone came in to stop that from happening.

Also Cesaro with a nice uppercut to Jey Uso, Jimmy with a nice superkick to Cesaro, Rusev with a kick to Jimmy, Black with his finisher Black Mask to Rusev, Nakamaura with his finisher Kinshasa to Black and everyone is just having a good ole time!! In the end, The Usos retained, not even mad, it was either them or Ricochet & Alesister Black.

Thoughts: I enjoyed it, everyone performed great in this match, so much happened and it was good, i’m glad one of my favorites were the victor in this match.

We then take a little break from the show to congratulate all of the inductees in this years WWE Hall Of Fame 2019, congratulations to everyone that was inducted.

The Miz Vs Shane McMahon (Falls Count Anywhere Match)

Shane isn’t making it easy for Miz as he playing chase around the ring, using Miz’s dad as bait to get him off his guard. Shane in control of the match at the moment, hitting him with a tv monitor, he then goes for his famous tope rope announce table jump, but Miz’s dad gets involved and challenges him to a fight!?……..

He seriously steps into the ring with Shane not really knowing what he was getting into, Shane as expected doesn’t make it easy for him and of course attacks him, which Miz does not take lightly as he goes after Shane and just lays it to him………

In the crowd now, Shane delivers a DDT to Miz, Miz launches Shane off the small ramp in the crowd. Miz is not playing around with Shane now as he continuously attacks him with a steel chair to his back as well as targeting his leg. Miz has gone mad, he doesn’t care who’s in his way, his main focus is inflicting pain on Shane.

Ooooh my goodness, Miz just launched Shane over the other side of the arena, kinda when Shane lands on top of a gulf cart and onto the floor……..then Miz lands his finisher the Skull Crushing Finale onto the tech area and Shane kicks out of that somehow………Shanes going up a high place, which means daredevil Shane or I don’t know whats going to happen…….HOLY SMOKES MIZ JUST SUPERPLEXED SHANE FROM 15 FEET IN THE AIR………..in the end though Shane somehow still won……….what a crazy match!!

Thoughts: I don’t have any, that was an insane match between Shane and Miz, but both did really great out there, really great!!

The Hug Connection (Sasha Banks & Bayley) Vs Nia Jax & Tamina VS The IIconics Vs Divas of Doom (Natalya & Beth Phoenix) (WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship)

Everyone’s going mad in the ring as it goes underway, the IIconics with a nice double team to Sasha…….Beth with a double suplex to the IIconics. Sasha with a nice transition into the Bank Statement to Beth, Natalya with a double sharpshooter to both Bayley and Sasha……..pretty good (moment) Nia and Tamina in control of the match here, both try to attempt a superfly splash, Beth knocks Nia off the tope rope. Sasha with a tribute to Eddie Guerrero using a frog splash to Beth Pheonix……….

Closing parts of the match, Beth Pheonix delivers a glam slam to Bayley, she goes for a pin, but Billie Kay with a sneaky tag in, taking out Beth, not only taking advantage of Beth’s finisher to Bayley, but also picking up the win and becoming the New Women’s Tag Team Championship…………congratulations girls you earned it!!

Thoughts: Not the greatest match, but it wasn’t that bad, it was alright, but the IIconics picking up the win in the end I think that made the match a little bit better than alright, I was super happy they won, I think they earned it and deserve it, even though this wasn’t the greatest match, I still enjoyed it.

Daniel Bryan Vs Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

Kofi goes flying and he sticks the landing too, Daniel catches Kofi with a submission…….Kofi kicks Daniel out of the ring, goes for a dive to Daniel, but just eats the announce table when Daniel steps out of the way, giving Daniel control of the match.

Daniel hit his corner kicks to Kofi, Kofi launches himself goes to land a stomp to the chest of Bryan, but ends up getting caught with a Boston Crab submission, Kofi struggles for a bit, but eventually escapes from it.

This match is getting heated, you can tell both Daniel and Kofi want this and i’m loving every single moment of the back and forth their giving us!! This is the kind of match that you don’t want to take your eyes away from nor miss a second of………..Kofi hits his SOS to Daniel, so close man, but Daniel kicks out of it.

No matter how many times Daniel lands hit after hit, kicks after kick, Kofi continues to ask for more letting him now he’s not done nor will quit so he can keep on bring all the attacks he’s got on him………also not sure what he did, but Kofi just pulled some impressive move on Daniel.

Rowan then tries to get involved, Xavior and Big E help out to keep Rowan from getting too involved by landing their tag team finisher to him outside of the ring. Daniel lands his finisher, after dodging Kofi’s Trouble In Paradise finisher, he goes for the pin, but Kofi kicks out…….

He then later locks in the Lebell lock to Kofi, trying to get him to fade with it, but Kofi soon escapes and just lays in with the punches on Daniel. Closing parts to the match Kofi sets up his corner finisher, hits Trouble In Paradise, pinning Daniel and becoming the NEW WWE CHAMPION!!!!!! He so deserves that maaan!!!

Thoughts: KOFIMANIA BABBYYYYYY!!!!! THAT NEW CHAMPIONSHIP LOOKS SOOO GOOD, I LIKE IT!!! REALLY GREAT MATCH THIS WAS, ONE OF MY HIGHLIGHT MATCHES!!

Update: It’s been a while since we saw the original WWE title and so I forgot what the original title looked like and so my brain thought it was new, but it never changed haha, well it did, but you know what I mean, I guess I got so used to Daniel’s title that my brain completely discarded the original design.

Rey Mysterio Vs Samoa Joe (United States Championship)

Thoughts: Well this match didn’t last long, did it!?………well then congratulations to Joe for retaining………Mysterio did well in the start he just fell short in getting the title as he was put to sleep with Joe’s Coquina clutch submission………

Roman Reigns Vs Drew McIntyre:

Woooah how awesome is that, McIntyre got a Scottish band to play his theme at WrestleMania……..pretty cool, but that was for the moment, now it’s time to get serious as we get ready for the big dog to arrive………..and he has arrived the big dog.

Match is underway in 3……..2…….1……LET’S GO!!

Roman starts off the match in control, delivering a samoan drop to Drew……..Drew catches Roman with a spin buster, he goes for a pin, but Roman kicks out. Roman goes for a drive by move, but is left hitting air when McIntyre moves out of the way and goes for a few attacks on him on the apron……….back in the ring McIntyre delivers quite an Alabama slam to Roman.

McIntyre was about to attempt Dean’s dirty deeds finisher onto Roman, but Roman quickly counters that one. Roman goes for his superman punch, McIntyre dodges and hits him with a headbutt, Roman uses the momentum of the headbutt and lands the superman punch, he then sets up for his finisher, spears Drew, pins him and wins the match.

Thoughts: I’m just glad Roman won, also the match was pretty alright, I enjoyed it!!

Ladies and Gentalmen Elias:

Elias finally gives us the performance that we’ve all been waiting for, accompanied by the Elias band………pretty good performance there, I gotta say, I thought Elias did really well on the drum, Elias on the piano was pretty good too, oh but Elias on the guitar, yeah that was impressive………nothing like a nice groovy, mellow chilled out, kind of music to go with the evening of WrestleMania.

Elias with the White Stripes niiiice, every time I hear that song the first thought that comes to mind is Football (soccer) that’s the theme to me of football haha, but that awesome, also the crowd with Elias name in lights, that that was incredible, real nice!!

So apparently, the performance didn’t happen yet, but it is now……..wait……no it’s not……..for some weird reason we’re getting a black and white video of the world series with Babe Ruth!?

Sooo the world series just finished and we got a another surprise, Mr Thuganomics in the house, well alright then, holy smokes…….that’s insane he came out with everything he used to wear back when he had this gimmick.

This is both interesting and kinda weird at the same time, he does his whole rhyming thing and gives Elias a few words and ruins his performance………with insults……….well that was something, glad to see Cena bring back his old Thuganomics gimmick for the night.

Thoughts: I’m speechless and I don’t have much to say, I just know that that was a really unexpected surprise, it was good though real good!! Sorry about your performance Elias…….your one man band though, that was cool!!

Triple H Vs Batista (No Holds Barred, if Triple H loses he has to retire)

I gotta say Triple H always has the best WrestleMania entrances……..he sure has got himself quite a ride to get him to the ring, that’s awesome!!

Well this match has definitely started……..Batista throws Triple H over the announcers table, then over the barricade. Triple H then throws a tool box at Batista, then attacks him with some chains. He then tries to break his fingers with some channel lock tool, hits him with a steel chair and rips his nose ring out with some pliers……….lovely!!

Batista in control of the match now………Triple H gains back momentum a bit, goes for the pedagree to Baista, he counters and lands a move, goes for a pin, but Triple H kicks out. Outside of the ring, Batista goes for his Batista bomb, off one of the announcers tables on top of the steel steps, Triple H counters and tosses him over another announce table, he then sends him a DX Crotch chop and drives him through the announce table.

Both Triple H and Batista recover after that drive through the announcers table, Triple H outside of the ring, Batista inside of the ring, as Batista is recovering in the ring, Triple H goes on search for his famous old friend that is the sledgehammer as he heads back into the ring to try and do some more damage on Batista he ends up being met with a spear from the animal who then goes for the win, but doesn’t quite get it when Triple H kicks out of it.

Batista now with the Sledgehammer, goes for the attack, Triple H counters, Triple H then goes after Batista but gets caught with a spin buster, he then catches Triple H with his Batista bomb finisher. Batista tries to get Triple H to land on the bottom of the steel steps, but Triple H ends up countering it and powerbombing him onto the steel steeps, Triple H then lands his pedigree finisher to Batista goes for the pin, Batista kicks out………

Batista with a DDT onto the steel steps as Triple H was trying to hit him with the sledgehammer, both men down and what do we have here a well Ric Flair trying to help out and encourage Triple H in the match, Ric goes over to Batista and taunts him, getting him super hyped, Triple H uses the steel steps as leverage to land his attack to Batista using the sledgehammer, he then hits the pedigree and wins the match.

Special guest appearance by Ron Simmons………DAMN, that never gets old!!

Kurt Angle Vs Baron Corbin (Kurt’s Farewell Match)

Match is underway, Angle goes straight after Corbin, Corbin later gains momentum and control of the match, Angle delivers a few German suplexes, Corbin catches Angle with his deep six move, goes for a pin, Kurt kicks out, we then later get an Angle lock submission to Corbin, who struggles to get out of it for a bit, but eventually gets out of it.

He then mocks John Cena’s “You Can’t See Me” line Kurt catches him with a nice hook to the face, then hits 3 German suplexes to him, goes up to the top rope, Kurt with a nice moonsault, however he misses the mark, giving Baron Corbin the control of the match and letting him take advantage as he hit his end of days finisher and pins Angle, winning the match………….

Thoughts: Kurt Angle’s farewell match, ended the tour with Baron Corbin pinning him……….I thought this was going to happen, I had a feeling this would happen and the crazy part is, Corbin did not cheat, he legitamally won just by hitting the end of days and pinning Angle cleanly, could Kurt possibly have passed over the torch to Corbin as a nod that he respects him as a superstar!?

I don’t know……….but to talk about the match………..it was alright………..it was enjoyable to me for what it was, I don’t think you can really complain too much, I mean okay yeah Kurt lost his farewell match, but if you look at it this way, all he did was put over a younger talent, I mean if it wasn’t for the whole Kurt and Angle feud,

We really wouldn’t be talking about Baron Corbin, it’s been a while since he’s been a little bit of the talk in the locker room and town and him beating Kurt Angle, not just at WrestleMania, but during his farewell match, that kind of achievement, yeah that’ll get people talking about him again, at least for a bit anyway…….

I’m sure they’ll set it up saying that he put Kurt on the shelf and got him to retire or something like that, but yeah…….wow he actually beat Kurt, a little surprising, but also not that surprising at the same time. Kurt losing his farewell match that’s not gonna change anything and that’s not going to define his 20 year career,

He’s got a whole lot of matches and moments that we will look back on and say, that was a really good moment, this too will be a moment, but it doesn’t mean that it’s going to be a bad one, but overall, I thought the match was okay.

Thank You to Kurt Angle for sharing his wrestling career with us and giving us the chance to be apart of it for the amount of years that he was doing it for, you went out there, put everything you had on the line and gave us something we will remember, I hope when you look back on your career, you remember it all with a smile and all, once again Thank You Kurt, it was a pleasure watching you perform.

Finn Balor (The Demon) Vs Bobby Lashley (Intercontinental Championship)

Finn Balors entrance and attire are amazing!!! Match starts off in Finn’s favor, when he takes complete control of the match, not even thinking of stopping……..Lashley now with the control on Finn who just attacks from left to right and at every angle of the ring. Outside of the ring, Finn catches Lashley with a slingblade and follows it with a shotgun dropkick launching him toward the barricade.

Back in the ring for a moment, where Lashley just spears the heck out of Balor through the ropes off the apron and back outside of the ring…….Balor with a nice powerbomb to Lashley, followed by his finisher the Coup De Grâce, pinning Bobby not only winning the match, but also winning and becoming the New Intercontinental Champion as well………….niiiiice!!

Thoughts: The match was decent, could’ve been a little better, but I thought it was still enjoyable, i’m glad Finn won so yeah, although I gotta admit Lashley did have a few good offenses towards Finn, but in the end it was The Demon who took home the gold and I couldn’t be happier about that.

A Metlife Stadium record: 82,265 attendees……..wow……that’s a lot of people!! Also Alexa Bliss’s wardrobes (outfits) their nice, I like the blue dress not related or anything but I just wanted to say that, also that dance break between Carmella and R-Truth……..very long and weird haha, but fun too…..by the way congratulations to Carmella for winning the women’s battle Royal, didn’t watch it, but congrats to her on winning it.

MAIN EVENT TIIIIIIIME!!!!

Charlotte Flair Vs Becky Lynch VS Ronda Rousey (Winner Take All, Triple Threat Match For The Raw & SDL Women’s Championship)

Charlotte on a helicopter………….I thought she was going to jump out of it, she didn’t……….still a nice entrance though. Joan Jett at Mania that’s so cool, I thought the performance was alright, Joan Jett’s cool…….also I don’t know how Ronda’s able to go from smiling one minute and then all of a sudden go straight serious, that’s talent.

Back to the entrances as the Queen has arrived………but that’s over it’s time to stand and greet The Man that is Becky Lynch!! Let’s go Becky you got this, it’s your time………..IT’S GO TIME!!!

This match just got serious………and it just started…….Ronda goes after Becky and Charlotte, inside and outside the ring. Becky and Charlotte back in the ring giving each other a fight. Ronda with a double armbar over the ropes to both Charlotte and Becky, Becky escapes, leaving Charlotte to take a little more damage.

Becky then knocks Ronda out of the ring……….Becky and Charlotte back at it to each other again, Becky locks in her disarmer submission to Charlotte, Ronda heads back into the ring and breaks the submission……….

Charlotte with a submisson to Ronda, Becky breaks it with a bulldog to Charlotte then hits a double DDT to both Ronda and Charlotte. Becky with a Bexplex to Charlotte, Ronda with a double crossbody to both Charlotte and Becky, she then locks in a double submission armbar, Becky and Charlotte double team on Ronda.

Becky trying so hard to submit Ronda……..Charlotte gets back in the match and later delivers a Spanish fly off the tope rope. This match is pretty intense, so much is happening and i’m loving it!! That figure 4 submission to Ronda by Charlotte off the ring post………goodnesss (Moment) Becky breaks the submission…….

Back in the ring, Charlotte again attempts the figure 4, transitions it into a figure 8, Becky with the break of the submission with a leg drop off the top rope. Becky sets up a table in the ring, Ronda flips the table not giving in to what the fans want, Charlotte with the double spear to both Ronda and Becky, tries to pin them, but they both kick out, leaving The Queen frustrated……….

Charlotte sets up the table in the corner and continuously rams Ronda’s face against it, Charlotte spears Becky, she goes for the pin, but Becky kicks out……..Charlotte goes through the table a bit……..now it’s just Becky and Ronda left in the ring as Charlotte rolls out of the ring………….it’s the Man’s time I feel it!!!

Ronda with the piper’s pit finisher to Becky, Becky somehow, don’t know how exactly gets Ronda’s shoulders to stay on the mat, pinning her and becoming both the Raw Women’s Champion and the Smackdown Live Women’s Champion!!!

Thoughts: I’m soooo happy for Becky, she totally deserved that win, although it’s going to be seen as controversial, buuut hey she won so it doesn’t matter. We got ourselves, KofiMania and WrestleMANia (quoting Michael Cole here) in the same night, what a night and evening (cause I had to catch up on some matches) i’m so happy, my reaction is a little different today, compared to last night, but i’m still happy knowing that Kofi won, Becky won and so many others that I predicted would win, congradulations Becky Lynch you absolutely deserved every bit of that celebration when winning the titles!!!

Final Thoughts: I enjoyed WrestleMania, there were some pretty great matches, as well as special appearances and all that jazz, there were so many good moments, of course certain matches could’ve been better, but even if they weren’t the greatest I still enjoyed it, KOFIMANIA, HECK YEAH!!!!

The Man, yes please (both Becky and Seth) The IIconics winning was nice, Roman, it’s always good to see Roman, glad he won!! that SDL tag match with The Usos, Ricochet & Aleister Black, Rusev & Shinsuke and The Bar, that was pretty good, really good, I was happy to see The Usos won that match, although I wouldn’t have mind if Alesister and Ricochet won it either………..

There’s so many different things to WrestleMania that I enjoyed, overall it was a good PPV, nice 2002 I think Cole said Cena appearance, that was surprising did not expect that at all, WrestleMania 35…………you’re on my good list!!!

Annnnd with that, we now come to a close to this blog post, that was WrestleMania 35 with a lot of surprises and title changes, also Finn Balor winning and just him as a whole, with that entrance and attire of his………..Niiice, real nice!!!!

Let’s Talk Wrestling: WrestleMania 35 Predictions

So with WrestleMania around the corner, literally 2 days away, I thought i’d share some of my predictions on who I think could possibly take it home this Sunday, we have a lot of interesting matches headed out way, including the very first Women’s main event featuring Ronda, Charlotte and The Man Becky Lynch, so without further ado let’s talk predictions on what we could look forward to this upcoming Sunday at WrestleMania 35.

Let’s starts with the match everyone’s talking about that is:

Ronda Rousey VS Charlotte Flair VS Becky Lynch For The Raw AND SDL Women’s Championship (Winner Takes All)

Who would’ve thought that after 35 YEARS of WrestleMania it would finally be the Women’s turn to main event on the grandest stage of them all that is WrestleMania!? That is insane, we all know that it took ages for the Women’s division to go from being referred to as Divas transitioned to being called WWE Superstars along with the Men……

Then we had the Raw Women’s Championship reviled to us and then later the SDL Women’s Championship (Which I think is the best title, but i’m probably just being bias, kidding they’re both nice titles)

We got to watch them be included into the Royal Rumble as real competitors and then watched as they were then given their very own all Women’s PPV that was Evolution. We were recently and finally given a very well deserve women’s tag team division and got to see them battle it out at Elimination Chamber to see who would become the inaugural holders of those said Women’s Tag Team Championships……..

Now we get to watch as they put their hearts and souls on the line and go to town this Sunday as the main event of WrestleMania, talk about history in the making, I don’t know how this match is going to turn out, but I know that it’s going to be one hell of a match between those 3 Women come Sunday and I look forward to watching it all unfold when they do face off.

Now I gotta say, i’d be lying if I said this matchup wasn’t a tough match to call, I mean have you seen the 3 women in that match!? It’s gonna be a little tough, we have Charlotte who was the very first Raw Women’s Champion, who just recently became the new SDL Women’s Champion defeating Asuka for it, then we have Becky who was the very first SDL Women’s Champion.

Then there’s Ronda who recently signed with the WWE, leaving UFC and then later became the Raw Women’s Champion a little later after she had just arrived, all 3 women are pretty great in the ring so it’s going to be a very interesting and tough match when we see this match happen.

Prediction: Like I said this is tough, however i’m going for The Man known as Becky Lynch to win this match on Sunday, why because I really want her to win and take both title home and i’ve been doing some thinking Ronda and Charlotte already have titles, The Man however doesn’t which means……….it could be her time to shine Sunday and she could become the Raw and SDL Women’s Champion at the same time………

Making history again within the history making match so, yeah i’m going for Becky Lynch here no brainer whatsoever, even though I love Charlotte, I’m going with The Man that is Becky Lynch as my pick for this match, to win it.

Brock Lesnar Vs Seth Rollins (Universal Championship)


Brock Lesnar………Seth Rollins…………Brock The Beast Incarnente, Seth Freaking Rollins (a.k.a. The Man……other man) tough choice here……..you see we have Brock who’s held this title for waaaaaaay to long, we only ever see it when a big PPV comes around because Lesnar can’t be bothered to show up at least once on a regular Raw show unless it’s when the PPV starts to approach closer to when the match is supposed to happen or the day after the PPV, Brock is pretty much how the weather is nowadays,

You never know what you’re going to get with the weather and you never know when Brock is going to show up on Raw unless it’s advertised. That being said let’s view Seth Rollins, we all know that he won this year’s Royal Rumble outlasting 30 other competitor and that he chose Brock Lesnar of all people to face when he could’ve went for Daniel Bryan, but he chose the toughest route thus this match would be born……….

Seth has improved tremendously as an in ring competitor, he’s always been really good on the mic, he’s had his fair share of moments where you didn’t know how to feel about him, but then later won us over with just being Seth Freaking Rollins and now we will watch as he tries to slay the beast once and for all, his determination to dethrone the beast incarnate from ruling over the WWE and bringing terror everywhere he steps………

Is quite the bravery I must say and I wait for the day, that is this Sunday where we will finally see Suplex City burned to the ground and we hear those sweet sweet words BURN IT DOWN as the village chants in happiness and joy as the beast finally becomes the vanquished one.

Prediction: In translation if you guys couldn’t understand what I was going on about, which i’m sure you picked it up, but just in case, no worries i’ll explain it, my prediction is that Seth defeats Lesnar this Sunday, because i’m tired of seeing him as the Universal Champion, especially when we only see the title every once in a blue moon, if you want us to start taking the title seriously, give it to someone who will bring (as the Miz would say) prestigious value to it instead of only getting to see the title every few months, at this point the Universal Championship is like a special guest.

And with that line you should know, that should not be the case, it’s a championship title, not a visit to your nan’s house or a some kind of unannounced family member who decided to drop by on the most awkward day of the week………the one I want to win is pretty obvious at this point.

The New Daniel Bryan Vs Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

Now this is the match that everyone wanted, needed and was begging for Daniel Bryan Vs Kofi Freaking Kingston for the WWE Championship!!

It took a whole lot of arm crawls up the hill, a whole lot of obstacles in his way and a whole lot of opponents to face just for Kofi to get this match, even though he had gotten through them all, there was always something that kept trying to keep him from reaching this point…….

11 years Kofi had to fight just to get this opportunity, 11 years Kofi had to watch as others get the WWE Championship, now we know why they call him Mr 24/7 (UpUpDownDown reference)

It’s because no matter how much they tried to keep him from getting the title, no matter the amount of twist and turns, roadblock after roadblock, after roadblock, he never stopped trying, He was a replacement for Mustafa Ali in the Elimination Chamber where we saw him almost capture the title when he and Daniel brought the house down.

He then was given an earned opportunity to face Daniel at Fastlane, which was ripped from him when Vince McMahon replaced him with Kevin Owens, then at the Fastlane PPV, it seemed like he was finally going to be given his shot at the Championship, until Vince again screwed him over by getting his hopes up only to be baited into a handicap match against The Bar……….then he was put into a Gauntlet Match which should’ve been his golden ticket to finally getting an opportunity at WrestleMania……..

Which he earned, but of course was screwed out of it again when he had last minute opponent that was Daniel Bryan, losing that one, mind you he faced 5 opponents prior to Daniel Bryan……….then we got our last opportunity for Kofi to be able to go on to WrestleMania and face off against Daniel Bryan, but it would not be in Kofi’s hands……ohhhh…..noooo

That oppurtuinity would be in the hands of his fellow partners Big E & Xavior Woods (the other halves of the New Day) to compete in a gauntlet match and help Kofi go to WrestleMania after they were considering leaving WWE due to Vince being unfair to them and Kofi as well.

If they were victorious in defeating all of their opponents, Kofi would be heading to WrestleMania, however if they failed, Kofi would no longer be given another opportunity in the WWE…………….it was a hard match, but the New Day pushed through it, they did get put into a table, well Big E did by the Bar, even though they had two more opponents to face off against……

Their next opponents would be non other than their good time rivals that were the Usos, but surprisingly they forfeited the match, because they knew Kofi Kingston deserves to me at WrestleMania and the last opponents would be non other the Daniel Bryan and Rowan who is always with Daniel………..and even though Daniel tried everything to keep the New Day from winning and Kofi from facing him at WrestleMania in the end the New Day won when Rowan got counted out of the match……….

Which gave is our KofiMania dream, a lot of obstacles he had to overcome and he finally was given his chance all thanks to Big E and Xavior woods.

Also it’s pretty ironic that Daniel is the one telling Kofi he’s a B+ player that’s pretty Rich coming from him, considering that, he was Kofi at one point where everyone thought he was a B+ player and didn’t deserve the title, but I mean I guess it makes sense that it would be Daniel saying it, it’s kinda like Triple H Vs Daniel Bryan back in 2014 all over again, only this time Daniel’s Triple H and Kofi is Daniel, it so crazy seeing the tables turn there.

Prediction: Now with that long introduction on Kofi’s journey, you probably think i’m going to want him to win, well let me tell you, that’s not true, i’m going for Daniel to win and retain at Mania……..yep…………

HA!! yeah, no i’m just pulling your chain, it’s a no brainer that i’m going for Kofi to win this, he’s been through so much and has done so much just to get to this point in his career, Kofi deserves this moment, he deserves to be WWE Champion and I feel like he will become WWE Champion!!!

It’s going to be a New Day at KofiMania Babbyyyyyy, let’s go!!

Triple H VS Batista No Holds Barred (If Triple H loses he must retire)

I’m going to be completely honest here………….I don’t really care who wins between Batista Vs Triple H, Batista is just a really huge drama queen, he’s been away from the WWE for a good amount of years, then he randomly shows up and demands Triple H give him a match at WrestleMania.

Which Triple H does, Triple H then gives him a stipulation with the match being No Holds Barred and then we had Batista demand a stipulation last Monday on top of that stipulation, telling him to put his career on the line!?………Alright then, I don’t really feel anything with Batista, I like his theme song, that’s pretty much it, but since he returned I don’t know there’s just something about him that makes me want to tell him to go somewhere.

I’m not bothered on him being in the WWE, he wants Triple H’s career on the line, but what he doesn’t know is that Triple H barely even compete’s anymore, so whether he wins or loses I don’t think it’s going to bother Triple H, but that being said, I do look forward to watching this match, I just don’t care who wins it between the two.

Kurt Angle Vs Baron Corbin (Kurt’s Retirement Match)

So everyone was pretty surprised and not all that happy when Kurt announced that Baron Corbin would be his opponent in his very last match in the WWE, as he would be retiring at WrestleMania. He’s had a long career Kurt, I mean he won a gold medal with a broken freaking neck talk about dedication right there………

It’s crazy to think he returned back in 2017 after being inducted into the Hall Of Fame and then later on became GM and then an in ring competitor again and now he’ll be having his farewell match this Sunday…………

There’s so many moments Kurt Angle brought to us while in the WWE and they will always be something we will look back on, along with all of his greatest match as well, it’ll be sad seeing him retire, but at least we have this Sunday to look forward to……….now when it comes to Baron Corbin, well he’s a different story and I don’t really know how exactly to talk about Corbin so let’s just get into the predictions for this match shall we!?

Predictions: This is a bit hard to choose from because I feel it could go two ways, although it would be real nice seeing Kurt Angle win his farewell match, I don’t know Kurt could possibly pass Corbin the torch here come Sunday leaving Corbin to gloat every single week about it oooor we could have Angle beat Baron and humiliate him…….

While giving us a really good farewell match as well, either way I don’t really mind which way this match goes, but if I had to choose who i’d want to win, I think I would want Kurt to have good send off and win his farewell match, we’ll see what happens!!!

Drew McIntyre Vs Roman Reigns:

As we all know Drew McIntyre has been pretty on top of things lately, we all knew him as one of the 3MB members, he then went away from WWE for sometime and then later returned after a good amount of years, came back and was on NXT and now he’s on the main roster.

He then paired up with Dolph Ziggler for sometime, even winning the Raw tag team championships I believe, then those two split because of Drew and then he temporarily joined forces with Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley, which lead to a feud between them and the Shield, once Roman returned and of course the Shield one because their the Shield, but now Drew’s out trying to ruin peoples careers………….

After Lashley, Corbin and McIntyre’s defeat at Fastlane thanks to Roman, Dean & Seth, the night after Fastlane………Roman was scheduled to face off against Baron Corbin after being away from the ring for 5 months at the time I believe recovering from his fight with Leukemia.

The Shield had just said their final farewell as a stable, with them moving on to go and do other things, Seth preparing for Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania to get the Universal title from him, Dean deciding on where he wanted to go next in his career and Roman wanting to focus on getting back into singles action after being away for so long………

Fast forward Roman is in the ring ready for his match, he waits for Baron Corbin to get into the ring, only to be surprised by an ambush from behind by Drew McIntyre, raining on Roman’s return back as a singles competitor and that’s the reason why we now have this match happening…….well with the request of Drew McIntyre is the reason we’re getting this match.

Predictions: This match could go two ways, either McIntyre defeats Roman, to continue on being this dominate force that he’s been built up to be oooor Roman wins this showing us that it doesn’t matter if you find yourself kicked down or stopped in your tracks along your journey, you can still come back and kick ass………….

This is hard (she says for the 3rd-4th time) Drew has been given this huge momentum since coming to the main roster and I have to be honest he’s been doing one hell of a job with that momentum too, the persona he’s gotten makes him seem a little unstoppable here, that being said……….

Roman he’s been through a lot, after just winning the Universal Championship he had to relinquish the title due to his Leukemia returning and having to take time off to recover and then later returning 2 months ago to tell us he’s in remission, which was the best news for everyone, but not as great as it was for Roman………..

He’s been through one tough rollercoaster ride and now that he’s back in the ring, ready to go, that’s it, once we see an ounce of momentum from him, we know that he’s not going to stop once he’s started.

This match is one of the tough ones to predict, but because I love Roman and because he’s one of my favorites, i’m going with the Big Dog here in this matchup, although Drew’s been on top of his game lately, I can’t go against Roman, plus I look forward to seeing him give McIntyre a taste of his own medicine especially after what he did to him and everything……..

Bobby Lashley Vs Finn Balor (Intercontinental Championship)

I don’t have anything to say as to introduce my predictions on this match, like I did with the other predictions, but I do have one thing that i’d like to say and that is, why did WWE feel the need to express that Finn would be arriving at Mania as the Demon King……..why!? Why not have where Lashley now knows he’s up against the Demon king at WrestleMania!?

They could have had it be a surprise, they could’ve had Lashley so off his game because he wouldn’t have saw this coming, this could’ve been Finn’s secret weapon here………..I just don’t get it, i’ll get back to this in my highlights for Raw & SDL, but for now let’s just get to the prediction……..

Prediction: I want Finn to win and regain the title……that’s it, that’s my prediction, I didn’t think he had a long enough run with title before so, I want him to win this match.

Shane McMahon Vs The Miz (Falls Count Anywhere Match)

Shane McMahon now known as the best in the worrrrld!!! Vs the A-lister and the must see WWE Superstar on tv The Miz………….former SDL Tag Team Champions and now they’re rivals………..no one would’ve saw Miz and Shane teaming coming and when it did it was weird, but also surprisingly nice to see, we didn’t think they’d work well as a team when put together, but hey we sure were proven wrong when seeing them in action together.

I remember saying how they just looked like a very odd pair, but once I saw how well of a team they were, well I still thought they were an odd pairing, (not as much as Gable and Roode of course, because that’s a real odd pair there) but I actually liked seeing Shane and Miz as a tag team, I got more use to seeing them working together than Roode and Gable, still can’t get use to them as a team, but I don’t mind them.

But back to Miz and Shane………who would’ve saw Shane turning on Miz coming after they lost and failed to regain the the titles back from the Usos after losing it to them at Elimination Chamber. I did not see Shane turning coming, if anyone would’ve turned I thought it’d be the Miz, but no it was Shane and that was surprising……..

I mean we all know Shane is capable of being a mean guy…….heel is what I mean, but he also plays the good guy really well too, which is why it was shocking seeing him just brutally attack Miz in his hometown the way he did, it’s like a switch had been turned on randomly and you just watched a completely different person appear in front of you.

I mean you look at Shane and he just doesn’t seem like this guy that would go ambushing people, unless he was provoked then you’re like, watch out for Shane, but randomly ambushing, can’t wrap my head around that, but it happened and that’s why we’re getting this match, demanded by Shane too.

Now let’s go to the Miz, because it was 2 weeks ago where he just wow’d me and i’m sure everyone else who watched his promo addressed to Shane when he talked about having to earn his way to where he is, as well as well as his father’s love. We all know how great Miz is on the mic, they way he delivers his promo’s is undeniably great, he’s just hands down one of the greatest when it comes to mic work and he’s also pretty great in ring too.

Miz knows how to bring the heat wherever he goes, whether he’s a face or a heel and that’s why people love and hate him, but like he said whether you cheer or boo him, you can’t deny his work ethic, because he’s always on the ball with everything that he does and it’s great.

Predictions: I’m going to go for The Miz to win this match, I feel he needs a redemption from last time, I mean he got pinned twice by the Usos and attacked in his hometown, so I think he needs this win, I feel this is going to be one of those tough matches, especially since it’s a falls count anywhere match and with Shane and Miz we know they both know how to perform well when in a match, so I know that it’ll be an interesting one, but I think Miz can win this, we’ll have to wait and see though.

Samoa Joe Vs Rey Mysterio (United States Championship)

I don’t have a lot to say with this match, we all know Samoa Joe became the United States Champion when he won a fatal 4 way on Smackdown Live out beating Andrade Cien Almas, Rey Mysterio and R-Truth who was the champion at the time only he wasn’t the one that got pinned for Joe to get the title and as for Rey he tried getting the title from Joe at Fastlane, but wasn’t quite successful, but was given a rematch for it at WrestleMania.

Now i’ve notice that Rey Mysterio’s son has been tagging along with him and the reason for that is because he’s training to become a wrestlers himself, which is nice that he wants to follow in Rey’s footstep, it’s crazy because I didn’t realize when Rey was being interviewed that the person standing next to him was his son Dominic, he’s grew so much from the last time we saw him in the WWE and that was many, many years ago, crazy!!

Prediction: I don’t know who I want to win here, I think i’m just gonna watch this one and see how this match turns out, I will say this though, I have some weird feeling that Dominic is gonna somehow get involved in this match.

Whenever Rey would be interviewed, he always spoke about Samoa Joe so, I wouldn’t be surprised if he decided to get himself involved sometime during the matchup, plus if he’s training to become a wrestler, you know something’s bound to happen, I could be wrong but i’ll still be keeping my eye’s out for anything trickery to go down or something……….

The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection (Sasha Banks & Bayley) VS Divas of Doom (Beth Phoenix & Natalya) Vs The IIconics Vs Tamina & Nia Jax (Fatal 4 Way Women’s Tag Team Championships Match)

Well, well, weeeell………a fatal 4 way Women’s tag team championship match, it shouldn’t have had to be a fatal 4 way, but it’s what we’re getting not that i’m complaining………I think Sasha and Bayley have done a pretty nice job at keeping the title, they were the first women to become the Women tag team champion back at Elimination Champber and they’ve had a pretty good reign with it too……….

Nia and Tamina they’ve just been out for revenge to get the title, Natalya and Beth they pretty much were just added to this match after Beth came out of retirement and the IIconics they earned their spot to be in this match after pinning Sasha and Bayley during their match on Smackdown Live 2 weeks ago, in all honesty I think this match should’ve just been team vs team Bayley and Sasha Vs The IIconics considering they were the ones that fairly beat Sasha and Bayley, but a fatal 4 way is fine………

Prediction: This ones a little hard, but i’m either going for Bayley and Sasha to retain or for the IIconics to win the titles, as for Natalya and Beth and Nia Jax and Tamina I don’t know I feel like they should’ve had their own separate match, since they were the ones that had a problem with one another, for them to be added to this match,

I don’t know, plus Nia and Tamina already got a title shot and Beth and Natalya even though they’ve been friends for years for them to just be given a shot at the title after they’ve just gotten back together as a team, I feel they should’ve just went against Nia and Tamina and then went after the titles later, I mean if Beth is going to be wrestling for a while, they could’ve just came back to it afterwards, but we’ll see what happens………

Buddy Murphy Vs Tony Nese (Cruiserweight Championship)

I don’t really have a pick for this match, I stopped watching 205 Live for a good while so I don’t really know what’s happening in the Cruiserweight Division so whoever wins is alright with me!!

I know that Buddy Murphy has been Cruiserweight Champion for a good while so i’m going to guess that he’s having a good title reign, as for Tony Nese I know how good he is because i’ve watched him perform before, but good luck to both Murphy and Nese during this match.

The Andre The Giant Battle Royal and The Women’s Annual Battle Royal:

And last, but not least, when it comes to both the Men and Women’s Battle Royal, there’s a lot of people there so i’m just going to watch to see, but if any of my favorites are in there, i’m gonna go with them to win.

If i’m being honest here, I don’t really get why the women’s have a battle royal when there aren’t really many of them in it, it’s literally like 8 to 10 (well I counted it’s actually 13) in the battle Royal, I mean I get them wanting everyone to be apart of WrestleMania, but still, it’s not going to mean anything they were all just added to one just for the sake of it……..

Whoever wins is going to just say “I won a battle royal at Wrestlemania”

They could’ve had them fight for something like how the men are fighting to be called the Andre The Giant Memorial winner, like I know that’s a different thing and it’s to honor Andre The Giant, but if they are just going to throw the remaining Women’s division into a battle royal without really anything to it, it just make people see it as unimportant and it shouldn’t be like that, but who knows maybe the battle Royal will be good one, but we’ll just have to wait and see on that come, well tomorrow night……..

That’s all of my predictions for Wrestlemania, tomorrow’s PPV is going to be one heck of a show, hopefully most of my predictions here are right, but we’ll see, I look forward to watching what goes down tomorrow, I can’t wait for the Women’s main event, can’t wait for Kofi Vs Bryan and so many other matches it’s gonna be good, hopefully we get a few surprises, but we’ll see.

All The Love ❤ ❤
