Next Sunday on April 5th is 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania. It’s going be in Houston Texas and the Reliant Astrodome, the same city Wrestlemania 17 was in. As most of you know, Wrestlemania 17 is my favorite Wrestlemania of all time. So maybe 25 can knock it off 17 at the top of the charts as my favorite. This year is a little bit different because usually I can predict what is going to happen, but this year because of who I like and who I don’t like it’s really hard for me chose. So with that being said here I go.
Chris Jericho vs. “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat & Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka
This for me is an obvious choice, the legends will prevail at Wrestlemania 25. So far I am really disappointed in how the storyline has gone with this match but if the match turns out to be great then maybe my feelings will change. But I am going with Piper, Snuka, and Steamboat to be in the spotlight one more time. It should be interesting
25-Diva Battle Royal for title of “Miss WrestleMania”
I really don’t know what Diva’s from the past are going to be on there so I am going to say this. If Trish Stratus is at Wrestlemania 25, then I will be picking her. She’s been on more Wrestlemania’s then any Diva I believe. If she is not in the Diva Battle Royal then I am going with Gail Kim.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Kane, CM Punk, Shelton Benjamen, Christian, Kofi Kingston, Finlay, MVP, Mark Henry
Since their are eight guys in this mass of humanity of a ladder match I am going to pick two who I think are going to win. My two picks are Christian and Kofi Kingston. CM Punk won it last year, MVP/Shelton are feuding over the U.S. Title, Kane and Mark Henry winning a ladder match just isn’t believable and Finlay…well I don’t what to say about Finlay. Christian seems to be the logical choice for the win but I have also noticed that Kofi has been getting pushed more as the weeks go by. I would love to see one of these two guys win the match and get some gold eventually.
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker
This is where it gets difficult, because I want so bad for Shawn Michaels to win this match. Shawn Michaels has been one of my favorites for a long time and he’s in my top two favorites in the generation along Triple H. I have never liked the Undertaker. He’s never appealed to me and plus I hear from people he’s not that nice of a guy outside of the ring. I wish I could say that Shawn Michaels will win this match but the Undertaker will go 17-0. Mark my words though, Shawn Michaels will have the best performance of the night at Wrestlemania 25. You bet on that.
World Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison vs. WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito & Primo in a Unified WWE Tag Team Championship Lumberjack Match.
This match I think is going to be a great match. It also gives everyone on the roster a chance to be apart of Wrestlemania. Here is where it gets difficult. Wrestlemania is about tradition so if it’s about tradition Carlito and Primo will win because their are second generation stars and they are carrying on tradition. Unfortunately I think Miz and Morrison have become one of the best tag teams in recent memory. Are they the greatest of all time? Hardly. But on April 5th they will become the first ever Unified WWE Tag Team Champions and cement their place in history.
Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy (Extreme Rules Match)
Fifteen years later after Bret and Owen had a classic, it is now time for Matt and Jeff to do what Shawn Michaels does and that’s steal the show. I enjoy watching both Hardy’s as they are in my top 5 of who my favorites are. I have actually met Matt Hardy before but I don’t think that will help his cause at Wrestlemania. As difficult as it is for me to say this, because I think Matt is the better wrestler, Jeff will win at Wrestlemania and do some crazy stuff along the way. However this could be potentially the match of the night.
Intercontinental Champion JBL vs. Rey Mysterio
Finally the Intercontinental Title is being defended again for the first time since 2002 when Rob Van Dam defeated William Regal to retain the belt. JBL said he wants to make history but on this night Rey Mysterio will win the Intercontinental Championship. This belt is one of the most prestigious belts in all of wrestling history so it’s only fitting that the title is on the line at Wrestlemania 25.
World Heavyweight Champion Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show (Triple Threat Match)
Well this is obvious isn’t it? John Cena will walk out the World Heavyweight Champion again and we can all go back to not liking him. Apparently this match appeals to no one but I think it is going to surprise the hell out of people. I think all three of these men have something to prove and they will prove it in this match. Like I said though when it is all said and done, John Cena will be World Champion once again.
WWE Champion Triple H vs. Randy Orton
Why me? Why it is so difficult? Triple H is my favorite wrestler of this generation and Orton is third among my top 5 favorites. The way the storyline is going I don’t know who will win. The logical thing would be for Randy Orton to win but why would a McMahon lose on the 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania? I can’t take it anymore. My prediction for this match is…………Randy Orton
So there you have it my Wrestlemania 25 predictions. Last time I made my predictions it was for the Royal Rumble and I got them all right. I don’t think I will get them all right this time because everything and anything is possible. I think you will see a lot surprises and it will make for a good PPV. Houston we have a problem, actually Houston you have Wrestlemania, and it’s a week away. I for one cannot wait.
