This was exactly my notion as well. Curse you for posting first. *shakes fist*

World: John Cena vs. HHH

My Pick: Cena

He quite simply can't lose. They didn't turn him heel because it would damage his merch sales, and crossover appeal, right? What would squashing him at 'Mania do. Cena wins.

WWE: Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio vs. "The Legend Killer" Randy Orton

My Pick: Rey Mysterio

Orton SHOULD win and deserves to win, but they can't get away with it. Any other option ends WM with horrendous boos, and not the good kind. Rey wins, loses it to Orton quickly (maybe like Tuesday.)

Money In The Bank Ladder Match: "The Whole F'n Show" Rob Van Damn vs. "Nature Boy" Ric Flair vs. Finlay vs. Lashley vs. Matt Hardy vs. Shelton Benjamin

My Pick: Ric Flair, considering Flair is the storyline of this match, he kind of has too.

Women's Championship: Trish Stratus vs. Mickie James

My Pick: Mickie James

Love, love, love Mickie James

No Hold Barred: Vince McMahon vs. "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels

My Pick: Shawn Michaels.

United States Championship: "Canadian Crippler" Chris Benoit vs. JBL

My Pick: JBL

World Tag Team Championship: The Big Show and Kane vs. Carlito and "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters

My Pick: Carlito and Masters, again they kind of HAVE to win. And considering the build-up (they're dumb, cocky, have no chance) that usually means they win.

Casket Match: The UnderTaker vs. Mark Henry

My Pick: The UnderTaker

Playboy Pillow Fight: Torrie Wilson vs. Candice Michelle

My Pick: Candice Michelle

Hardcore Match: Edge vs. Mick Foley

My Pick: Mick Foley (and Edge immediately does something heinous and lays him out afterwards, ala the HHH v. Michaels SS 2002 Streetfight.) Edge gets nothing from winning and Foley is proven to be a fraud. Have Foley win, Edge lay him out, blow it off in a rematch in the Hell in the Cell.

The Boogeyman vs. Booker T/Sharmell

My Pick: The Boogeyman

I like the idea of Flair calling his shot afterwards, but I just doubt that will happen. ESPECIALLY if the planets align and Bret Hart makes any sort of appearance at the show. Regardless, if this match goes on last, they give it to Cena in the Match of the Night. It would have to be.
Pick: Cena

The fanboyish mark in me is begging for the right outcome here.
Pick: Mysterio

I really don't see Bret showing up here. Not unadvertised... right? That said, I think the match will be our evenings SPORTZ ENTERTAINMENT BONANZA.
Pick: Vince McMahon, via chicanery

I gotta give this one to Flair, but what will be interesting is how they set up a summer feud between Shelton and RVD for the IC strap.
Pick: Flair

Gosh, I wonder if they'll let Henry break the streak...
Pick: Undertaker

Count me as an Alexis Laree fan from her MCW days, but I don't know if she'll go over here, when they can drag it out to Backlash.
Pick: Trish Stratus

I'm not that interested, but I imagine it will work into a nice match.
Pick: Benoit

Are worms scary? Really?

They make Carlito and Masters a tag team, then immediately begin the breakup tease?
Pick: Carlito and Masters

Pick: Candice Michelle

I disagree with the detractors... this match will be a pleasant surprise.
Pick: Edge

-Mickie James pins Women's Champion Trish Stratus [NEW CHAMPION; Clean/semi-clean win.]
-Chris Masters & Carlito beat World Tag Team Champions Kane & Big Show [NEW CHAMPIONS; And they cheat to win, too.]
-Edge pins Cactus Jack
-Undertaker beats Mark Henry in a Casket Match
-Ric Flair wins Money In The Bank II
-Shawn Michaels pins Vince McMahon
-Triple H pins WWE Champion John Cena [NEW CHAMPION]
-Rey Mysterio beats World Champion Kurt Angle & Randy Orton [NEW CHAMPION; Pinfall on Angle after RKO or something.]

They HAVE to close with a face going over.

Rey v Angle v Orton (World Title)
Prediction: Raymond Stereo - sets up Orton vs. Rey-Rey for Orton's title grab.

Cena v HHH (WWE Title)
Prediction: HHH, setting up the Cena pursuit of the title again.

Flair v Shelton v RVD v Hardy v Lashley v Finlay (Money in the Bank)
Lashley will kill Finlay, but Finlay will incapacitate Lashley somehow as well. That leaves the RAW faction to eliminate Hardy, who I believe is only in there for some insane bumps with RVD. So, it comes down to Flair and Shelton. Flair would make a nice farewell if he would only retire already. Shelton makes a great development project for the ME, so I'm going with that. They can always pull a title match out for Flair later.
Prediction: Shelton

Edge v Foley (Hardcore Match)
Prediction: Edge, 'cause Foley is just gonna build up other guys at this point.

Mr. McMahon v HBK (No Holds Barred)
Prediction: HBK

Undertaker v Henry (Casket Match)
Prediction: Taker

Benoit v JBL (US Title)
Prediction: JBL, and the feud can continue.

Boogeyman v Booker and Sharmell
Prediction: Boogeyman (*sigh*)

Trish v Mickie
Prediction: Mickie

Candice v Torrie (Pillow Fight)
Prediction: Candice

TBS/Kane vs. Carlito/Masters (World Tag Titles)
Prediction: Carlito and Masters

Does Bret Hart make a live appearance at the show, for whatever reason?
Prediction: No

Why not.

- This has the potential to be a really, really fun match to watch. Stiff as Hell, and I get the impression that JBL will absolutely love working this match with Benoit. The shame of it, though, is that they really haven't done much to build to this particular match. Benoit retains.
Winner: Benoit

LINGERIE PILLOW FIGHT: Candice Michelle vs. Torrie Wilson
- They slap each other with pillows. Victoria comes out and attacks Torrie. The majority of the guys in my bar, hetero as they are, complain and ask what the fuck the point of that was, and what it was doing on a Wrestlemania.
Winner: Candice Michelle

Booker T vs. The Boogeyman
- WWE decides for whatever reason that they want this to go ten minutes. Whoever's reffing is told to relay the message "go home" after four. Boogey wins.
Winner: The Boogeyman

WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Trish Stratus (C) vs. Mickie James
- I've absolutely loved the slow burn to this feud, and have felt it's been one of the better booked aspects of RAW the past few months. I also think James is terrific in her role, and don't think she's all that bad in the ring. Mickie wins the title.
Winner: Mickie James (New Women's Champion)

WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES: Kane & Big Show (C) vs. Chris Masters & Carlito
- I'm REALLY glad they decided to pair Masters and Carlito. Masters can learn more if he's not forced into singles matches, and it can be a fun pairing. It's also about time to get the titles off Kane & Show. It's just a shame that there's no tag division whatsoever on the RAW side.
Winners: Masters & Carlito (New Champions)

HARDCORE MATCH: Edge vs. Cactus Jack
- This'll be...okay, but not great by any stretch of the imagination.
Winner: Edge

CASKET MATCH: Undertaker vs. Mark Henry
- ...c'mon. I think this'll be the first time in what seems like forever that Taker has actually won one of these.
Winner: Undertaker

MONKEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH, PART DEUX: Rob Van Dam vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Ric Flair vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Fit Finlay vs. Matt Hardy
- I don't think this'll be as bad as everyone thinks. You've got Lashley in there to do a few impressive power spots. You've got Hardy and Van Dam to work as bump machines. You have Flair working the psychology end of an old man who doesn't belong in the match, but still hangs in there (and that'll be the story being told throughout the match). You've got Shelton, who is just plain awesome. Finally, you've got Fit Finlay...who will HIT PEOPLE IN THE FACE WITH LADDERS. Seriously, you can't go wrong with this. Especially that last part. Flair somehow wins, although not in a convincing fashion at all.
Winner: Ric Flair
Additional prediction: Despite smarkish apprehensions, this match gets a **** rating.

THE BATTLE OF WHO COULD CARE LESS: Shawn Michaels vs. Vince McMahon
- I think the last time this much time was spent on something that when it's all said and done I could care less about, Hogan vs. McMahon at a previous Wrestlemania. What a coincidence. It'll be fun to watch for awhile, but if they go longer than fifteen minutes this match is going to drag. HORRIBLY.
Winner: Shawn Michaels
Additional Prediction: McMahon blows his knees out (again) fifteen minutes in.

- I see there's a few other posters who have been thinking along the same lines I have ever since Flair gave his pre-match interview for the MitB qualifier on RAW awhile back. HHH wins, Flair cashes in, Flair walks out of Mania with the title. Keeps it for a month, if that.
Winner: HHH
Additional Prediction: Flair cashes in, wins title

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: Kurt Angle (C) Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio
- They have to end the show with a feel-good moment, otherwise it just wouldn't be Wrestlemania. With the promotion he's gotten lately, and two consecutive weeks of losses, Rey wins. Eddy's family comes down to the ring, as does Batista, to hug Rey and help him celebrate. Eddy chant breaks out, PPV feed ends.
Winner: Rey Myserio (New Champion)

Despite the pretty weak overall card, the past week I haven't been as pessimistic about the show as I was a couple weeks ago. That has far less to do with TV build than it does with me really analyzing the card and saying "you know, this doesn't look too bad."

Edit: And Bret Hart WILL NOT BE THERE. AT ALL.

Money in the Bank. Flair, if for no other reason than he has been hugely entertaining all year, arguably more than anyone else on either roster. Lashley gets to look impressively strong, and Matt takes sick bumps from Finlay who gets to look vicious. They put this on first to pop the crowd.

Edge v. Foley. Foley takes 4 minutes getting to the ring. Edge in a bloody match, after Lita-ference breaking up Mr. Socko. Edge gains nothing from this match, Foley collects a paycheck.

Mickie v. Trish. Mickie wins, to keep the most interesting women's feud in years going. I'll say she wins with help from other divas who are also sick of Trish's long reign.

Masters/Carlito v. Kane/Big Show. Masters applies the Masterlock to Big Show. Show in the midst of breaking it, Carlito tries to hit Show with a chair but hits Masters instead, breaking the Masterlock. Kane chairs Carlito and the faces are DQ'd preserving Show's 0-fer streak. Champs retain, adds to the storyline and Carlito/Masters get rematch the next night on Raw where they will win despite their differences, to get the belts.

Taker v. Henry. Taker. Short, break out the Tombstone, maybe the fat guy gets it from the apron into the wooden casket.

JBL v. Benoit. I like the idea of an Austin appearance here. I'm not sure how it fits in. Toss-up, but good match. I'll take JBL as it will shake things up a bit.

Torrie v. Candace. GoDaddy.

Shawn v. Vince. HBK, in a thoroughly bloody/entertaining match. Shane appears and takes a big bump somehow.

Boogeyman v. Sharmell and Booker. Sharmell gets a bucket of worms dumped down her dress. Boogey, in a short comedic relief match after a couple of bloodbaths. The crowd will need to reset their emotions before the last 2 matches.

Mysterio v. Angle v. Orton. This is the among the toughest matches to call, my heart says Rey, my head says Orton gets the push, both'd be happy with Angle retaining. I'll go with Rey, who will lose it to Orton shortly thereafter.

Triple H v. Cena. Triple H. Cena wins it back on a rematch clause the next night on Raw, adding legs to the feud and eventually another title for HHH, who is becoming obsessed with Flair's record # of titles.

Sorry, but no Bret in the ring.

The hardest thing to predict will be the backstage segments - not just the interviews of upcoming matches, but the laying the groundwork for the future feuds. Sure, there will be plenty of divas floating around and it might be a way to get some of the HoFers a PPV check without having a nostalgia rumble. I'm thinking we might get a bonus match with MNM or the juniors, maybe Val/Vis will get to complain about not having a match. They need to get Teddy Long on, hopefully it's not just a "good luck Playa" to Lashley.

What the hell...why not? After some debate, I won't be watching the show at a movie multiplex, only because the busses running out to my place stop at around 5:00pm or so. Michael Cole said about fifteen or twenty times during the press conference, it starts at 4:00pm pacific.

Is anyone going to keep track of these, like last year?

Anyhow: Oliver Predicts the Big Time!

Rey d. Orton and Angle

HHH d. Cena

MitB: Flair wins.

Foley (as Cactus Jack) d. Edge

Mickie d. Trish

Kane/Show d. Carlito/Masters

JBL d. Benoit

Torrie d. Candace

Vince d. HBK

Taker d. Henry (duh!)

Boogieman d. Booker T and Sharmelle T

I think the Raw heavyweight title showdown will be the main event, and as well...with the way the crowds have been 50/50 cheering and booing Cena, I'm kind of thinking we may see a dual face/heel turn: with HHH turning face and Cena turning heel. Kinda like Bret/Stone Cold

Oh, and Bret? Won't be at the show. I'd love to see him interfere in the Vince/HBK match....but nah.

Who can resist Wrestlemania predictions?

I've been thinking about this one. Now, here's the thing. Cena is embarrassing them. They cannot continue to have him come out there as the babyface champion and constantly get booed, even if he cutely acknowledges it. So why haven't they turned him yet? Merchandise sales? Maybe, but the status of the WWE championship is a more important thing to consider. Mainstream celebrity? I don't buy it -- his album is long off the charts, and other guys have successfully promoted movies (whatever happened to that, anyway?) as heels. So why haven't they turned him? Maybe because they're saving it for Wrestlemania, where he'll do the ol' double turn with Triple H, who has been a heel forever (by today's standards) and probably isn't as loathed as he used to be. But here's where it gets a little complicated. Triple H has held the title 10 times before. You can't have him turn face at some point during the match and then win the title, because where's the big accomplishment in that? Where's the excitement? No, a newly heel Cena has to retain, the Trip has to chase him after Wrestlemania.

Definitely not Angle -- poor guy. Always the transitional champion. That leaves Orton and Mysterio. I'm sure they're not confident in Mysterio's abilities to be a convincing champion, but the storyline is a little too good to resist. Notice that Mysterio is the guy getting the mainstream press just for getting a shot. So Mysterio it is.

People seem to like Flair for this, but not me. Flair has settled into his late-50s role and winning a title shot isn't really compatible with it. The "one more run" promos are probably a red herring. I'm torn between Shelton and RVD here, but I love that idea about RVD calling in his shot at One Night Stand -- they have to do something at the ECW PPV to top last year -- so I'm going with him.

I gotta tell you, it's so obvious that Edge is going to win this, I'm tempted to go with Foley. Aren't the fans eventually going to catch on that Foley loses every time and stop buying him as a threat, barbed-wire bats or not? I'm tempted, but I won't. Edge.

Mickie is a great character. Trish has to drop the belt eventually. Mickie.

The Kane Show, despite the cute name I just gave them -- did you see that? -- aren't really a tag team. Carlito and Masters have a nice rapport, plus WWE is obviously in love with them. Carlito and Masters are my patented Lock of the Week.

This is a tough one! Uh, Benoit. JBL with the U.S. title seems a little anticlimactic, I guess. And he doesn't need a belt, especially that one.

Candice was in Playboy more recently, right? And she was in those commercials? I fast forward these angles. Which one's the heel again? Anyway, Candice.

Damn, I already named my patented Lock of the Week, didn't I? And you can't go back on your patented Lock of the Week. Anyway, naming this one Lock of the Week would kind of be cheating. But still, Taker. Though I would seriously mark if Henry won, seriously. That would be so awesome. The difference is he isn't afraid of the Undertaker! Just like half of his other casket-match opponents!

A lot of people are predicting a non-finish here, but I say Boogeyman goes over more or less clean. He ain't losing, that's for sure.

Vince's ego seems to be even bigger than usual lately, and what with Shawn in the twilight of his career, you can't really claim it doesn't make sense for Vince to win. But the only reasonable culmination of this angle is Michaels taking one home for the Lord. Hey, maybe Vince will turn face afterwards! Michaels will show him that he, in fact, can have what he has! We get a feel-good Christian storyline to match the direction of our society at large -- VKM is nothing if not current.

No, Bret will not show up.

Sir, a jelly donut, sir!

    At least that's how I remembered it. Then I looked into it and realized I was way off. Live-music wrestlers have performed kinda well at WM...

    14: HHH, Won
    14: HBK, Lost
    16: D'Lo & Godfather, Lost (does this count?)
    17: HHH, Lost
    18: Dudleys, Lost
    18: HHH, Won
    19: Undertaker, Won
    21: HHH, Lost

    *Live-music wrestlers are 3-5 overall, 2-3 in title matches and 1-3 in main events (if you count HHH-Taker (17) as a main event.

    *HHH is on that list a lot, isn't he?

    *I'm sure I'm missing someone.

You forgot Lawrence Taylor who had Salt n Pepa playing him to the ring when he beat Bigelow at WM 11. I think it was 11 anyhow.

Rey v Angle v Orton (World Title): Rey's win would be the mark-out moment of the night.

Cena v HHH (WWE Title): Cena

Flair v Shelton v RVD v Hardy v Lashley v Finlay (Money in the Bank): Flair wins to set up a last title run.

Edge v Foley (Hardcore Match): Edge wins through chicanery. The bigger question is whether Foley creates that special "Wrestlemania moment" that they've been hyping for weeks.

Mr. McMahon v HBK (No Holds Barred): HBK wins.

Undertaker v Henry (Casket Match): Taker. Duh.

Benoit v JBL (US Title): JBL wins.

Boogeyman v Booker and Sharmell: Booker wins if there's any justice in this world.

Trish v Mickie: Mickie wins to set up the chase.

Pillow Fight: There's a reason she's nicknamed "Torrieberg."

World Tag Titles: Carlito and Masters. But will they defend them?

A bit off the track, but I just found out I have to go out of town on a business trip for the next two weeks, so it looks like I'm going to miss this Sunday nor be able to order a replay.
If anyone is taping it or making a copy, I have a bunch of DVDs and tapes (ROH mainly) to trade if someone can hook me up.

I'd really appreciate it, PM me if you can help me out.

My predictions:

1. Show/Kane vs Carlito/Masters (Tag Team Championship Match) -> Show/Kane by pinfall, Carlito accidently bumps into Masters, causing Masters to end up in Chokeslam. Split is the next night after rematch.

2. Boogeyman vs Booker T/Sharmell (1.5 on 1 handicap match) -> Boogeyman by pin with "easy, lighter" slam on Sharmell while Booker runs away from the ring, leaving Sharmell alone with Boogeyman. Leads to cage match on a Smackdown/next SD PPV.

3. Mickey vs Trish (Women's Title, "These Divas look so cute" match) -> Mickey in an upset by pin, loaded Mick-Kick
without ref seeing.

4. Benoit vs JBL (US Title, Revenge match) -> Benoit wins by submission -> Crossface

5. Edge vs Foley (Hardcore Match) -> Foley finally gets the win by pinfall, Lita-ference with a dropped barbed wire bat accidently bashed on Edge's head.Both will be busted up pretty bad, but what could you expect

6. RVD vs Finlay vs Flair vs Hardy vs Benjamin vs Lashley (Money in the Bank - And we spend the next several months wondering when he will cash in the title shot Match) -> Lashley in an upset, enough said.

7. Candice vs Torrie (Playboy Pillow Fight - Got to go to the bathroom to revive everyone from the last match) -> All remaining to watch are the real winners, but Candice wins with the "Brick in the Pillow" to Torrie.

8. Undertaker vs Henry (Casket Match - "Megasized") -> UT wins -> Daivari returns to try to interfere, and both Henry and Daivari gets stuffed in the casket, of course Daivari goes in first)

9. Michaels vs Mr. McMahon (No Holds Barred, or fighting against the boss that would get you fired in the real world) -> McMahon will do anything and get everyone involved (Shane [If his child hasn't come out], Spirit Squad, anyone else we could think of), but HBK comes up with the Sweet Chin Music. The ref would be knocked out, and Bret Hart comes out. HBK gets the Sharpshooter on McMahon, and Hart enters the ring, gets the ref in position, and Hart picks up the refs hand and calls for the bell. HBK wins by "submission," Hart and HBK talk smack to VKM, and Hart leaves, saying goodbye to everyone.

10. Triple H vs Cena (WWE Title Match) -> Yeah, it will change here. HHH, with the pedigree, 1..2..3. New Champion, and the world will be back on its axis. The next night, HHH sledgehammers Cena's belt to pieces, and Mr. McMahon will give him the regular title belt. Plus, we get the usual 20 minute opening segment of HHH blabbing about returning to the top.

11. Mysterio vs Orton vs Angle (Triple Threat World Title Match) -> I would put this match last. Mysterio gets the win for Eddie, pinning Orton after a frog splash. Angle will be knocked out of the ring, being a non-factor in the end. Next Smackdown, Angle challenges Mysterio after saying that he was not pinned in the match. Angle wins title again on SD.

I don't know how it will turn out. It would be nice to get it, but with so much on (Women's Final Four and White Sox/Indians [Yeah, I'm a Cub fan, but it's the first game of the year], and not living alone (if I was alone, I likely would get it), I'll just read the recaps.

A few questions on the RVD wins MITB2 and cashes in the shot at the ECW PPV against Trip theory:

1) Last time RVD and Trip were programmed against each other was fall '02, and Trip was injured at least twice by RVD. Why would he agree to be programmed against him now since his place in the company/family has been further solidified since fall '02?

2) Considering neither big title was defended last year at the ECW PPV, why would either be defended this year, particularly Trip's? As someone who never worked ECW, he wouldn't fit into the concept. Also, it could be argued that an ECW PPV is 'beneath' Trip's stature, and thus wouldn't warrant him having a PPV match there, especially since a RAW PPV would be the next PPV after the ECW PPV. Also, May/June has been the time period where HITC has occurred the past few years, thus, if RAW has HITC, it would be probable that Trip (or whomever the champ is at the time) would already be in an extended program building to that match.

    2) Considering neither big title was defended last year at the ECW PPV, why would either be defended this year, particularly Trip's?

Obviously there's no way they can recreate what they did last year. That was something you can only do once. They need something different to justify a second show beyond "some of those same guys, plus Terry Funk, minus the Dudleys." RVD winning the title in the ECW version of Benoit at Mania 20 or Flair at Starrcade '93 would be something. Would Hunter be a good enough sport to participate and would the crowd 'accept' a WWE storyline intruding on their fantasy world show? I dunno, but point is they need something to build Two Night Stand around besides "we're back! uh, again."

    Last time RVD and Trip were programmed against each other was fall '02, and Trip was injured at least twice by RVD. Why would he agree to be programmed against him now since his place in the company/family has been further solidified since fall '02?

Basically, because he can win and lose the title whenever he pleases and work with whomever he pleases, dropping the title to Van Dam and getting it back shortly thereafter just gets him one step closer to 17, plus he gets to be the focal point of something that could otherwise temporarily overshadow him.

He could just as easily not lower himself to participate, but it's a far more likely scenario than Ric Flair cashing in the same night he wins the briefcase, which is an idea I guess we're going to have suggested at every Wrestlemania they have a Money in the Bank match from now on. (Flair cashing in and getting one last shot at glory is a fine, fine story, but it's something you build up ahead of time, not give away immediately.)

    Also, May/June has been the time period where HITC has occurred the past few years, thus, if RAW has HITC, it would be probable that Trip (or whomever the champ is at the time) would already be in an extended program building to that match.

It's probable that you're giving them too much credit in terms of long-term planning. HHH has Cena at Backlash in a rematch and I would hope they don't try to do a Hell in a Cell after that. Heck, he could do a HIAC rematch and win the belt back from Van Dam.

How can you not accept that as an inevitability? If they're gonna run MitB matches every year, then the notion that the winner cashes in his shot on the same night is just as much a certainty as the notion that two guys can win the Royal Rumble by having their feet touch the floor at the same exact time.

As I said earlier in the thread - what would he do, wait a whole year? The dude's pushing 60...why wouldn't he cash it in as soon as possible? In fact, why wouldn't he cash it in against a guy who just ended a match 5 minutes previously? Against his most hated rival of the past 5 years? Ric Flair, the character, has already established that he wants title reign #17 very, very badly. And he's OLD. And he plays DIRTY. On top of all THAT, he's gonna have 2-3 hours rest. Take advantage of that shit the first chance you get.
