Cena (Probability 95%) Punk (60%) Sheamus (65%) Undertaker (100%, duh) Team Johnny (55%) Big Show (60%) Orton (99%) Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos (90%)
Other probabilities: Cena vs. Rock will be a classic SOLELY based on crowd reaction (90%) A World Title match jerks the curtain (80%) Jericho throws a tantrum (60%) Hell in the Cell will have blood (35%) Stone Cold will appear stunnering someone (20%) Ryder will be buried in some way (50%) This Wrestlemania will be one of the better ones (60%....give the World Title matches enough time, and we're on a good way) Hot Newz' fantasy booked Wrestlemania would be 10x better than the actual product (100%)

Oh man, the resulting crowd riot would be worth it to see this match end from a run-in by a new guy nobody knows.
John Cena vs. The Rock: Every part of me thinks that The Rock should win this match. That said, putting Rock over Cena has the side-effect of admitting the attitude era was better than what they've done for the past 10 years. Plus, Rock has gotten the best of Cena at every turn. I gotta go with Cena here. They'll try to do some big moment after the match to send the crowd home happy, but I think they've lost their minds about the reaction being 50/50.
Undertaker vs. Triple H: Undertaker easily.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho: Jericho's return has been his worst one yet. No one cares at all. He needs the title to get him some momentum, but with the family stuff brought in, I'm going with Punk winning here and Jericho winning the title in Chicago next month.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus: The Royal Rumble winner needs to win this match to keep the Rumble from becoming completely meaningless. Going with Sheamus. I'd love for Bryan to win since he's been doing great on Smackdown, but I think him keeping the title neuters the Rumble.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny: Team Johnny. Not sure what they'll do with Teddy after this though.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show: Cody cheats to win. I had Big Show down for a win by DQ or something to keep the title on Cody, but I have too many faces winning.
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Orton wins because Kane winning accomplishes absolutely nothing.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: Going with Beth and Eve. WWE showing Maria pinning Beth sets it up for Beth to get her win back. Maybe Kharma returns to get in Beth's face after the match.
Brodus Clay kills someone in a couple minutes.
They've done such a terrible job promoting this show that it's hard to pick winners this year. The only match they've done a good job with is Taker/Triple H, and that build peaked a week early. Cena/Rock has been underwhelming, and other than a few minutes each show, the rest of the card has been treated like an after-thought.
Cody Rhodes over Big Show via DQ when Big Show kicks too much ass
Orton over Kane
Phoenix/Eve over K2/Maria aka "Mrs. Torchslasher"
Team Johnny over Team Teddy. Dolph pins Santino, leading to US title match on Raw.
Sheamus over D. Bryan (ugh)
CM Punk over Chris Jericho

John Cena vs. The Rock: Winner: The Rock Afterwards Cena turns heel and reforms the nWo with Nash and the DX Duo.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee: Winner: Triple H Next year Undertaker returns and points out that he is still undefeated at Wrestlemania as Bikertaker, so we get a triple threat with the DX Duo.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match: Winner: Chris Jericho
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match: Winner: Sheamus, via an AJ turn
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line: Winner: Team Teddy when Zack pins Henry
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship: Winner: Cody Rhodes
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Winner: Kane
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: Winners: Beth Phoenix and Eve
Dark Match Battle Royal Winner: Hornswaggle
Edit: The Canadian Nexus (Gabriel and Kidd) win the Undefined Tag Team Titles
Crap, I keep forgetting to do these and it's almost April 1 (here anyways).
John Cena vs. The Rock:Cena wins. Moral.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee:Undertaker wins. Moral.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match: I dunno, I can't see a title reign for Jericho at this point. Unless of course, it's just to transition the nelt back to Cena at then next PPV. But I'm probably guilty of over thinking here. So I'll goo with CM Punk winning.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match: I feel as if this chapter of "Daniel Bryan: World Champion" isn't quite ready to be closed yet. But I have no faith in the WWE to carry off a small heel champion beats a big babyface challenger at wrestlemania. But I dunno, it doesn't feel as if there is a big swell of momentum behind Sheamus. Conflicted! I'll go with Sheamus winning.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line: Team Johnny wins. Teddy is always kinda meh and disposable and can be easily brought back in the future. I can see Vince really loving the John Laurenitis character.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship: Given the build, I can't see Cody winning unless Show is being punished for getting too fat again or some such. Maybe this releases Cody to fued with new champ Sheamus over the Summer? But this leaves a largely meaningless belt on Show, who is above it. Anyway, Show wins.
Randy Orton vs. Kane:Orton wins. I almost feel sorry for Orton being in a WM afterthought match. But it's Orton, so meh.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: I feel sorry for Natalya here. She by rights, and by any semblance of sensible booking is in this match. Instead she is performing in the role of el stinko and this is a celebrity match, not a comedy match. So Kelly Kelly and co win. Beth probably eats the pinfall too.
Might as well do this as I find ways to distract myself from writing papers.
John Cena vs. The Rock: Cena wins, even with all the rumours I still think Cena will win this clean as a sheet.
Undertaker vs. Triple H, Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels as Special Referee: Taker wins this one.
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho, WWE Championship Match: This is really a toss up, I will go with Jericho because I think Punk continuing to go crazy leading to Extreme Rules works better.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus, World Championship Match: I really want Bryan to win here, but I think Sheamus is going to win.
Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny, Control of Raw and Smackdown on the line: Team Johnny gets the win, thanks to The Miz.
Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show, Intercontinental Championship: This is a tough match to call, Show doesn't need the belt, but he needs to look strong in this match. I see Cody cheating to win, and Big Show knocking him out immediately afterwards.
Randy Orton vs. Kane: Orton wins by embracing the hate.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix & Eve: I'm guessing this gets turned into a lumberjill match and somebody interfering to give the babyfaces the win.
This looks like a pretty good card with a bunch of matches that could be extremely good. I have high hopes for this one.
Justin, cable ratings or not - riddle me this, Batman? Whose wrestlers were on mainstream TV back in the day? Whose wrestlers were on Talkshows and gameshows and other major media outlets? Which wrestling promotion had a Network contract?
