Triple H vs. Roman Reigns, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: The Reigns era officially commences, but for how long? But boy, if Triple H wins...
Shane McMahon vs. Undertaker, Hell in a Cell Match; if Undertaker loses, he will never fight at Wrestlemania again, and Shane McMahon will take control of Monday Night Raw: This is tough. I'm going to say Shane wins just to shake things up on TV for a bit, though they'll backtrack on the Taker stip.
Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose, No Holds Barred Street Fight: Ambrose gives it his all and takes some crazy bumps, but I mean, it's Ambrose: Lesnar wins.
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch, Triple Threat Match for the Divas Championship: I think Charlotte loses the belt here, but to Banks or Lynch? I'll go Lynch.
Chris Jericho vs. A.J. Styles: Gotta be Styles here.
Seven-Man Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Kevin Owens retains. Hopefully we get a meaningful Owens vs. Zayn singles feud upcoming, though.
New Day vs. League of Nations, 4-on-3 Handicap Match: New Day wins.
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal: I don't know, uh, Heath Slater? If they can get someone, I would tend toward a big name coming back from injury.

George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.
Triple H vs. Roman Reigns, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: ROMANWINSLOL.
Shane McMahon vs. Undertaker, Hell in a Cell Match; if Undertaker loses, he will never fight at Wrestlemania again, and Shane McMahon will take control of Monday Night Raw: I'll go with Taker.
Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose, No Holds Barred Street Fight: My heart and my head are telling me two different things. I'll go with my heart. C'mon Ambrose, you can do it!
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch, Triple Threat Match for the Divas Championship: It's been so long since I've watched a show that I've never seen any of these women wrestle. Um, Banks I guess? Maybe?
Chris Jericho vs. A.J. Styles: Styles.
Seven-Man Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: For maximum hilarity, I'll say Zack Ryder wins it. I know, I'm throwing my "money" away, but I'll look like a genius if he actually does.
Kalisto vs. Ryback, United States Championship Match: Kalisto.
New Day vs. League of Nations, 4-on-3 Handicap Match: New Day wins.
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: Henry wins it as a going-away present.

Reigns wins, then turns heel on Raw. I can hope, right? Undertaker wins. They find another way to get Shane into the McMahon Family Power Struggle (2016 version). Lesnar. Banks. Styles. New Day. Kalisto. Owens retains, then continues 1v1 feud against Sami. Total Divas. Strowman wins the ARMBAR. Usos.

And mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours!
Triple H vs. Roman Reigns, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match - Reigns. As much as I wouldn’t mind HHH burying this one, it’s better to pay this thing off and wear Vince out.
Shane McMahon vs. Undertaker, Hell in a Cell Match; if Undertaker loses, he will never fight at Wrestlemania again, and Shane McMahon will take control of Monday Night Raw - Shane, because this is such a great underdog story!
Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose, No Holds Barred Street Fight - Lesnar, because come on, underdogs can’t win!, Realism suddenly comes into play except in the above match. After all, they have to save Lesnar’s 3-year unpinned streak for someone like Big Show or Braun Strowman. Not the guy who could really use it.
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch, Triple Threat Match for the Divas Championship - Sasha.
Chris Jericho vs. A.J. Styles - Jericho. Yeah, I know it makes no sense.
Seven-Man Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match - Owens retains. Don’t really see anyone in this match except Zayn having a shot and Vince probably doesn’t see the appeal in Zayn.
Kalisto vs. Ryback, United States Championship Match - Kalisto. Another great underdog story!
New Day vs. League of Nations, 4-on-3 Handicap Match - New Day. I expect a 4th person to be added to this, maybe Rock who does very little but makes it count.
Dudleys vs Usos - Dudleys
Andre Battle Royal - Big Show repeats (as far as names on WWE.com). Is Braun Strowman not in this?
Three people have picked Ryder to win the IC title in a match he is only in because Neville hurt himself, and the IC ladder match must have exactly 7 participants - no more, no less. He has literally no reason to be in this match. And fuck it, I pick him to win too. Why not?
So, my line-up is:
Reigns (holding out for a heel turn, but he gets the belt either way) Shane, I guess? Does anyone care about this match? Ambrose. It's not like they've ever booked him decently, but after his loss to HHH, he needs this win real bad, and Brock's gotta lose to somebody eventually, right? Banks. It sure seems like they've finally realized what they've got on their hands there, and somebody's famous uncle is going into the HoF. Styles. Jericho's always been good for putting guys over. Ryder, for the reasons listed above. Kalisto. Why put any belt on the Ryback? New Day, because the LoN are in a worse position than ND was at this time last year. Uhhh, Dudley Boys, I guess? Total Divas, and I bet Brie gets the pin. and I pick, not Brawn Strongman, but Bray Wyatt to win the ARBaR.
Wooof. Bonus prediction - I am going to be exhausted at the end of the night.
Roman Reigns Taker Brock $a$ha Bank$ AJ Styles KO Kalisto The New Day Total Divas Dudleyz Mark Henry for the ARMBAR (are any of the Wyatts in it? Is Bray still hurt? Will they do another mini-NXT tourney like last year's that put Itami in?)
ARMBaR: Now is the time for the #SocialOutcasts to officially start trending! Heath Slater wins by laying low and then with help from his fellow #SocialOutcasts
Total Divas vs Bad and Blonde: Total Divas lives and dies by the girls being catty to each other. They can't do that if they win. Bad and Blonde win to let the Total Divas bitch on their show.
Usos vs. Dudleys: I didn't realize this was happening. Let's say uhhh... The Usos
New Day vs. LoN: If you could see me gesturing with my hands, you would know that the New Day are waaaaaaaay up here while the rest of the tag division is way down here. League of Nations win so The New Day can move onto bigger and better things. In a perfect world Big E would move into the title picture with Kofi and Xavier backing him up all the way.
Intercontinental Ladder Match that must have SEVEN men no matter what: Sin Cara so that both the Lucha Dragons have belts for a pleasing sense of symmetry.
US Title Match: Kalisto See: pleasing sense of symmetry, above
Jericho vs Styles: Chris Jericho wins after a hard-fought match in which AJ earns his respect. The two end up re-forming Y2AJ because they still have a lot of T-shirts to sell.
Lesner vs. Ambrose: Has Ambrose won any pay-per-views since The Shield broke up? Maybe all he needs is the magic of Wrestlemania! Dean Ambrose wins with the help of the craziest foreign object he can find- maybe a coo-coo clock?
Women's Title Three-Way: Sasha Banks may have a famous cousin being inducted in the hall of fame, but Charlotte's father is Ric F'n Flair, and I think they'd give HIM the Women's Title if they could. Charlotte wins but still gets to debut a new title belt.
Taker vs Shane: The real winner is the cage, who has the best theme song in all of wrestling. But as far as pinfalls go Shane McMahon wins after climbing out of the cage, on to something even higher, and then jumping down on (or near) the Undertaker. Luckily, with Shane now running Monday Night RAW, Undertaker doesn't have to leave Wrestlemaina forever because Shane makes it all okay. He also ushers in a new area of 2 hour RAWs, lots of pure, mat-based wrestling, compelling female characters, honest and insightful commentary, and all the titles having intrinsic and significant meaning. He also buys me a pony and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens make out on live TV.
World Title Match: Even with the Shane era of peace, love and chinlocks Triple H needs to stay on the program somehow. HHH retains after he and Reigns make a double turn.
Why yes, I am still trying to get every prediction wrong, why do you ask?
It's the most important meal of the day.

Sometimes I pick who I think will win. Sometimes I pick who I *want* to win. This is definitely the latter.
So far it looks like Kalisto vs Ryback, Uso vs Dudleys, and the 10-woman tag matches are all on the pre-show. ARMBaR is now on the main show.
Is the pre-show going to count for the prediction rankings for this event?
1) The Wyatts, who aren't even important enough to officially be booked for WrestleMania, end up being the only ones to get the rub from Ambrose/Lesnar.
2) Stephanie McMahon gets to be involved in any change from divas title/division to women's title/division that may happen, possibly via bringing someone into The Authority, at WM or the Raw after.
3) John Cena returns unannounced to win the ARMBaR, paying off the multi-year, low-key running gag of Cena repeatedly attempting to announce his entrance into the Andre Battle Royal only to be forced out of it.
And speaking of Undertaker finishers- what ever happened to his "Taker Care of Business" submission he used for a couple weeks back about a month and a half ago? Does he use it at all anymore, or did they drop that already?
