It’s almost time for the biggest wrestling event of the year! Find out how I think each match will go down in our WrestleMania 33 predictions!
1. Singles match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries
I could see this match going either way, but the build up with Aries over the past few weeks point to him winning his first championship in WWE. Nevill has been a fantastic champion, so I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing him hold it a bit longer.
my Pick: Austin Aries wins the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
2. 2017 André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal for the André the Giant Memorial Trophy
Mojo Rawley, Apollo Crews, Big Show, Curt Hawkins, Braun Strowman, Goldust, R-Truth, Primo, Epico, Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas, Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn, Fandango, Tyler Breeze, Dolph Ziggler, Rhyno, Heath Slater, Jason Jordan, Chad Gable
Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Konnor, Viktor, Kalisto, Aiden English, Simon Gotch, Sin Cara, Titus O’Neil, Mark Henry, and `Tian Bing
This is a tough match to call with so many guys involved. I really think Braun Strowman will eliminate The Big Show to win this match. The dark horse in everything here would be Tian Bing who was added recently to the match.
my Pick: Braun Strowman
3. Singles Match for the WWE Championship
Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Randy Orton
I think that Bray Wyatt will retain the WWE Championship due to some type of interference by Erick Rowan and Luke Harper. I think we’ll see the original Wyatt Family return to prominence with this match. Maybe even Sister Abigail in the flesh?
my Pick: Bray Wyatt retains the WWE Championship
4. Singles Match for the WWE Universal Championship
Goldberg (c) vs. Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman)
This match feels like the most predictable one on the card thus far. I fully expect Brock Lesnar to beat Goldberg in a quick match to win the WWE Universal Championship. It’s possible that Goldberg wins and instead drops it on Raw, but I don’t think that will be the case.
my Pick: Brock lesnar wins the wwe universal championship
5. Singles match
The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns
I think that this may be The Undertaker’s last year. With WWE invested in Roman Reigns (and rightfully so), I definitely see Roman pulling out a victory over The Undertaker. I do hope that’s not the case, but it really looks that way right now.
my pick: Roman Reigns
6. Non-Sanctioned Match
Seth Rollins vs. Triple H
I’m going to say that Seth Rollins will win this match after interference from Mick Foley in some way shape or form. I expect lots of interference in this bout.
MY Pick: Seth Rollins
7. Singles Match
Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles
I can’t see AJ Styles losing this match. It’s a foregone conclusion that he’ll be winning this one considering he’s the one with the most to lose and gain from this.
MY Pick: AJ Styles
8. Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax
I’m going to go against the grain a little bit in this match and say that Bayley will retain her title despite the overwhelming odds. It’s the definition of her character and it makes the most sense. This one could go a number of ways, though.
My pick: Bayley retains the raw women’s championship
9. Singles Match for the WWE United States Championship
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Kevin Owens
I think that Kevin Owens will take the title from Chris Jericho. This whole storyline was to build Owens up and I think this will accomplish that. Jericho will be leaving WWE shortly as well, so it’s a safe bet.
MY Pick: Kevin Owens wins the WWE United States Championship
10. Mixed Tag Team Match
John Cena and Nikki Bella vs. The Miz and Maryse
If John Cena and Nikki Bella don’t win, I’ll be surprised. I do think this match will somehow tie into Total Divas with a proposal by Cena or something after the match.
MY PIck: JOHN Cena & Nikki Bella
11. Singles Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Baron Corbin
I believe this will be Baron Corbin’s crowning moment at WrestleMania. I’m surprised they haven’t announced some type of special match for this. I think Corbin will take the title in a back and forth match.
MY Pick: Baron Corbin wins the wwe intercontinental championship
12. Triple Threat Ladder Match for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Cesaro and Sheamus
I’m going off the board and predicting that The Hardys will come back at WrestleMania to win the Raw Tag Team Championship in this Ladder Match. I mean, why else would this be a Ladder Match? The other teams have no real ladder experience.
MY Pick: matt & Jeff Hardy win the raw tag team championship
13. SmackDown Women’s Championship Match Open To All SmackDown Live Contracted Women
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Mickie James vs. Carmella (with James Ellsworth) vs. Naomi vs. ???
I’m going with Naomi to win this match. I think we may see someone like Eva Marie come back or some legends possibly make a comeback to the brand, but I believe Naomi will walk out champion in her hometown.
MY Pick: Naomi wins the smackdown women’s championship
This show should be jam-packed with action and I’m excited to see what’s in store!
