John Cena vs. The Rock: The Rock wins, Cena spirals out of control soon after.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee: My love of this feud is well known - the Undertaker wins, which will then kick off another leg of the journey for the Triple H character.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match: Punk wins, I could see the feud continuing.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match: Daniel Bryan wins, moving us towards Byran/Orton. DanielBryanBIGYESx4.exe
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship: Rhodes wins. I could see Show snapping after though.
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Orton wins, next feud commences with Bryan.
And then two matches which are actually intertwined:
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: Kelly & Maria: Beth and Eve win. Eve wants to go celebrate, and asks Ryder to go with her. He agrees. Leaving us with....
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line: Team Teddy is a man short. Ryder comes to his senses and hits the Rough Ryder on someone, Team Teddy wins.
Oli's predictions: I'm gonna be the minority on a couple of these, I think.
John Cena vs. The Rock: The Rock. I want to see him win it. There will be a faceoff the following day, I bet, where Cena extracts some form of revenge, and a promise for a rematch...the next year.
Undertaker vs. Triple H: Triple H wins after Shawn interferes.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho: One of the most uncomfortable things I've ever had to see is having family issues turned into fodder for a wrestling feud. Whether it's true or not...it really turned me off the match, and Jericho. Punk retains.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus: Sheamus wins. AJ has enough of Bryan's abuse and clocks him.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny:Team Teddy...I'd love to see a returning Evan Bourne turn heel and eliminate Kofi or something during the match.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show: Show wins, but by DQ. The feud carries on to Extreme Rules.
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Kane wins. Don't know why, but he wins anyhow.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: How often do celebs lose at Wrestlemania? Exactly. K2 and M2 win.
Cena vs. Rock. I hope it is Cena or my kids will be crushed. Personally I could care les because any excitement I had for this match was crushed in the awful build up. The Rock I knew and grew up with is dead. However, why would he come back for money when he is making a ton? I see the Rock going over but putting Cena over on Raw as the greatest wrestler he ever faced.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus Again, my kids LOVE Sheamus, but they are younfg and do not understand the excellence that is Daniel Bryan. The fact that he was almost banished forever from WWE for spitting on Cena to now Champ is remarkable. I am calling for the mini upset with Bryan (YES!!!) retaining.
Jericho vs. Punk Once again, my kids love Punk. They think is awesome. And they hate jericho - who is my all time favorite. I don;t see Jericho coming back to lose two PPV in a row. Jericho takes this one and sets up a rematch - which Punk will win - which will set up the rubber match. At that point, there will be three PPV of Punk vs. jericho and the winner is me for that.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny Of all the matches, this is the 100% lock. No way Team Johnny loses. Hate him if you will, but I cant imagine RAW without Johnny BUT I can imagine Smackdown without Teddy. Faces hit their spots, but the heels take the victory. And it should be Mark Henry with the win to get him back on track.
Cody Rhodes vs. The Big Show God I love Cody. I never thought he would breakout this well, but color me wrong. However, he no longer needs the IC. And Big Show could use a win and the crowd needs a reason to cheer. So Big Show takes this one, uses the IC to get over a lesser wrestler and Rhodes moves up the ladder.
Randy Orton vs. Kane Orton is my second most hated wrestler. I hate everything about him. I see no value in him at all. That ismy opinion. I love Kane - he is a company guy who does what is asked of him and can still work a decent match. I hope he wins, but I am sure the "viper" will strike with his shitty RKO and get the win.
KK/MM vs. Beth & Eve Wasted spot. Nothing more nothing less. KK/MM because why not?
Undertaker vs. HHH HH is the wrestler is hate hate the most. I can not stand the sight of him. I think for every thing good he has done for wrestling, he has done three things to set wtrestling back. Again, personal opinion. He will DEFINATELY ge the pin on 'Taker, but Michaels will refuse to count the pin, HHH will confront him, 'Taker gets the last Ride on HHH, Michaels does a quick 123 count and 'Taker goes 20-0 and QUICKLY leaves the ring. HHH and HBK have their shoving match which leads to security breaking them up and eventually a one year build up to their match. And by the time they leave the ring EVERYONE will forget 'Taker was even in the match. God I hate HHH.
- Cena goes over Rock. Something happens afterwards where Rock and Cena get to fight off a heel/heels, handshake of respect afterwards.
- Taker over HHH. I don't think HBK comes back, and in the end he ends up not doing anything to screw either guy. Both Taker and HHH do stretcher jobs/assisted walkouts.
- Punk over Jericho. Postmatch shenanigans with Jericho attacking Punk with weapons lead to Extreme Rules rematch in Chicago.
- Sheamus over Bryan. Failed AJference leads to boot to the head.
- Orton over Kane.
- Team Johnny over Team Teddy. Miz gets the win for TJ.
- Show over Rhodes. This is a shame, as Cody is awesome right now, but he is ready to make the leap. I wouldn't be surprised to see him challenging Sheamus for the big gold belt this summer.
- Phoenix/Eve over Kelly/Maria. Wouldn't be surprised to see Maria end up pulled into a ringside role and someone inserted in her place. Either way, Phoenix wins to stay strong for eventual Kharma feud.
-Funkasaurus will dance backstage with Gene Okerlund and Mae Young. Ron Simmons (HOF Inductee 2012) will say "Damn".
Cena - although I don't think he wins clean Undertaker Bryan - moves on to feud with Randy Orton Orton - moves on to feud with Daniel Bryan Punk - this is the only one I don't feel confident about Team Johnny - Eve interferes and Ryder eats the pin Kelly and Maria Cody Rhodes - I predict this WM loss causes Show to snap and turn heel
John Cena vs. The Rock I just don't see them leaving the Miami crowd pissed off. I'm thinking Rock wins her and Cena takes a rematch at SummerSlam or Mania.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee The more interesting thing here is gonna be how deteriorated Taker looks. If he pulls out a good match, he could reasonably coast to a 25-0 streak only having to do one match a year. If he struggles, it'll be 20-0, HoF next year. Taker wins.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match Punk was the breakout star this year. Don't see them feeling safe with giving him a WM loss just yet. Winner: Punk
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match I predict this will be the year of Sheamus, but I'll say Bryan uses nefarious means to sneak away and have Sheamus chase for awhile so it'll really mean something when he gets the belt. Winner: Bryan
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line Damn do I hate everything about this match. From most of the participants (Otunga carrying a thermos does NOT make him watchable), to the entire evil GM trope that needs a long vacation. Johnny's team wins because they have members who need the rub (Henry, Ziggles) whereas Team Long is a bunch of comedy guys that can get back over with skits and promos. Winners: Team Johnny L
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship This is the first time I've cared about Cody. Big Show doesn't need the belt. Plus, the whole anti-streak thing could give Show a big moment a year or two down the line. Winner: Rhodes
Randy Orton vs. Kane Orton kinda lost his place with the rise of Sheamus, Punk, and Bryan. But it'll keep him from burning the fans out on him like Cena. Winner: Orton
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve Winner: Female John Cena and the Celeb
Cena over The Rock. Jericho over Punk for the WWE Title. Bryan over Sheamus to retain the World Title. The Undertaker d. Triple H; The Streak reaches 20-0. Team Johnny wins, but McIntyre gets eliminated early just to piss me off. (It would please me very much if he destroyed everybody.) Show d. Cody for the I-C Title. Orton d. Kane. Babyfaces win the divas match.

John Cena vs. The Rock: WWE has done a great job building it so that it's tough to call. Story-wise, it makes more sense for Cena to go over. The Rock cost Cena the belt last year, got the pin for the team at Survivor Series, he's been built up as the guy to beat, and the story is in Cena climbing the mountain.
Yeah, Rock would like to add Cena to his trophy case alongside Hogan and Austin, but that just makes him more the obstacle in the way of Cena's goal.
Yeah, it's in Miami. Still, the crowd reaction did nothing to stop The Rock from winning at WM18 against Hogan, and I don't think it'll stop Cena from winning here. Cena. Possibly by either an Austin-style mid-match turn or finding a new fire and kicking Rock's ass.
I know nothing about SummerSlam rumors or next year's WrestleMania, so I'm making my prediction based on just what I've seen.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee: 20-0 is such a round number. Undertaker.
Regarding the two world title matches: One heel wins, and one title changes hands. Not sure which way to go on either, but if I had to make a call...
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match: Punk should really get the WrestleMania win here, but at the same time, I don't see both champs retaining and this feud going away. This one, I'm going against the grain (and who I'd rather see win) and saying Jericho. He didn't come back for nothing.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match: Sheamus wins. The Rumble winner has been getting the shaft the last few years. Only reason Bryan retains is to set up a feud with Orton, but they can still give Bryan the belt back and do that soon-ish.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship: Rhodes. I mean, come on. Show doesn't need to win at WrestleMania, right?
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Orton.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: Kelly & Maria: Beth and Eve. Sure.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line: Team Johnny. Heel GMs play better. Maybe Teddy gets a job as Laurinitis' assistant.
All you guys picking HHH (which - it frankly shocks me that ANYONE would actually predict an Undertaker loss at WrestleMania) can get Trips at +800 on Bovada, according to Deadspin. In other words, you bet $100 to win $800 if HHH breaks the Streak.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos -350 Beth Phoenix & Eve +225
Randy Orton -500 Kane +300
Cody Rhodes -120 Big Show -120
Daniel Bryan +225 Sheamus -350
CM Punk -250 Chris Jericho +170
Team Teddy +550 Team Johnny -1000
The Undertaker -1500 Triple H +800
John Cena -270 The Rock +210
I love that Cody and Big Show is dead-even right now. And Bryan, Jericho, and the Rock are all underdogs.

For all we know, these specials could be similar to the Hall of Fame or "Mania Behind The Mania" specials they had on Spike, albeit Raw-brand specific. So I don't know that necessarily means the return of SNME.
