Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton, WWE Championship Match: This is one match where Drew's title finally feels like it's in jeopardy due to a combination of (a) low ratings, (b) wanting a fresh start for their new tapings in Amway Arena and (c) the relative hot streak Orton has been on. I'll go with McIntyre retaining anyway.
Braun Strowman vs. The Fiend, Universal Championship Match: I think the Fiend wins here, while Alexa Bliss may or may not play a part in the finish.
Sasha Banks vs. Asuka, Raw Women's Championship Match: I see Asuka winning, Bayley and Banks beat her down after the match, leaving her as easy pickings for...
Bayley vs. Asuka, Smackdown Women's Championship Match:...Bayley, who retains. Gonna be really ticked if I have this backward.
Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins, Street Fight: I'll go with Rollins winning.
Apollo Crews vs. MVP, United States Championship Match: I feel like MVP keeps getting title matches though he never wins. Crews wins and retains.
The Street Profits vs. Andrade & Angel Garza, Raw Tag Team Championship Match: I feel like it doesn't really matter; Garza and Andrade win the titles.
Mandy Rose vs. Sonya Deville, No-DQ, Loser Leaves WWE Match: This is tough but I'll go with Mandy getting revenge and the win.
Edited to change the stip for Rose vs. Deville

I guess I didn't see it coming, as I've been really sporadic watching the build for this card. I guess I'll go with:
McIntyre Fiend Asuka X2 - they really think the "two belts" gimmick is the draw, rather than the personality of Becky Lynch that got it over in the first place. And that's no shade at all to Asuka, one of my favorite performers. Dominik Crews Garza & Andrade Rose - Seriously, which of these two women is going to "Leave" WWE? Why even do a gimmick this predictable? I mean, really, no change in the match despite the change in stip, but at least they won't bury DeVille for doing exactly what they asked of her, like they do literally every time they have a woman shave her head.
These predictions are from someone who hasn't seen any WWE on TV for around 11 months so these are based on TV reports...
Orton - Drew can win the title back with a small crowd down the line, but they are really making Randy seem important.
Fiend wins followed by an Otis cash in. Otis & Mandy do a Randy & Elizabeth ending up with a wedding at Wrestlemania - as I said, I haven't been watching and guessing on possibilities and they are going to want to have a happy story to make everyone happy.
Rollins despite a lot of interference. Maybe Murphy turns on him to set up the next feud, but he shouldn't lose to a first timer. Brock v Cain is a good example.
Mandy is the absolute banker win. Sonya may well end up the better at the end of it if they turn her in to a destroyer.
Crews seems to be a favourite at the moment so he wins. Andrade & Garza are good and should win. Both women keep their titles. Will they do both matches following each other so the first gets a cheap win followed by a beat down and a quick win so the second can say they are better? Maybe they lose the tag titles next week so that PPV/special event/badly scheduled event has an outcome of note.
