As of last night the Wrestlemania 26 card is official and final. Here are the matches along with my thoughts and predictions.
Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk (If Punk wins, Mysterio joins the Straight Edge Society)
This could actually be the match of the the night. CM Punk has always wanted to wrestle Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania and now he gets his wish. I think Mysterio wins and avoids being put into the Straight Edge Society.
Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase
This match will be a great match but I think Ted DiBiase will win the match. He’s inducting his father into the Hall of Fame the night before and it’s he grew up in Arizona as a little kid. I think you’re going to see some great things from all three but DiBiase will highlight the match.
Triple H vs. Sheamus
Most people don’t know but Sheamus is Triple H’s training partner so in a lot of ways it’s teacher vs. student without that being shown on TV. I think Sheamus is going to have biggest victory of his career. I really love how Triple H is taking a step back out of the Main Event and letting the spotlight shine on someone else. He knows he has to start building the younger guys up for their to be a future in WWE. This match is a start.
Unified WWE Tag Team Championship
ShoMiz (The Big Show and The Miz) (c) vs. John Morrison and R-Truth
I think Morrison and Truth will win because WWE needs something dynamic and no one is more dynamic then these two. I think it’s time that Morrison and Truth will be all over the place on Sunday and they will walk away with the gold.
No Holds Barred
Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon
Thirteen years fans have waited for this and I really think that Bret Hart is going out the way he should have all along. Bret Hart will give Vince the beating of his life and he will leave with a happy ending. Bret will prove that he still is the best there is, the best there was and perhaps the best there ever will be.
Money in the Bank ladder Match
Christian vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Jack Swagger vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Matt Hardy vs. Evan Bourne vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston
Well in my opinion their are two guys I am picking for this match. I really think Kofi Kingston or Christian will win. They are the most two deserving of a title shot. Kofi is definitely the future of the WWE if they actually use him right. I am glad they gave him more of an attitude and made him more serious. As far as Christian goes, it’s a given. He is World Champion material and he proved that in his time in TNA. WWE needs to see the same thing and give him a chance to shine even more.
WWE Championship Match
Batista (c) vs. John Cena
The first time around Batista won the match and in my opinion the match sucked because there was no buildup. I think this match is going to be awesome because of the insane buildup. I think Cena will win the match and prove again why he is the biggest star in WWE, as much as I don’t like him. This is the dream match everyone has waited for and this time it’s done be right. Cena will get the gold back once again.
Undertaker’s undefeated streak vs. Michaels’ career
No disqualification, No count-out
The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels
I think we all have to face the facts that Shawn Michaels career is over and that The Undertaker will go 18-0. It’s going to be hard to repeat what they did last year but because their are no rules in this match I see something crazy happening. If Shawn’s going out, he’s going to go out in a blaze of glory. I think this match will be match of the year again. Farewell Shawn you have had a wonderful career.
World Heavyweight Championship
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Edge
Edge will complete his comeback journey by winning the World Heavyweight Championship. How ironic is it that Stu Hart is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and two of his students are in the main event of Wrestlemania. I think these men are going to show why Stu Hart was the greatest Wrestling trainer in this business and they are going to have a classic World Title match. Edge will walk aways being a 10-time World Champion.
So there you have it my Wrestlemania 26 predictions. Check back next Monday for Wrestlemania 26 results and recap. There will be “Destruction in the Desert” and it will be “The Showcase of the Immortals” once again. It’s Wrestlemania!
