How bad were the Mania predictions?


Not everyone will go back and tell you how off they were on predictions, but not this guy. I’m going to quickly go down the Wrestlemania card and my predictions from my “Wrestlemania Predictions Sure to be Wrong” piece.

ROMAN over Undertaker – got this one right, although I did also say that I didn’t think this is Undertaker’s last match. Sure seems like it was, but you never know for sure until its official. 1 for 1

BROCK over Goldberg – I almost got this exactly right in my brief match description. 2 for 2 so far.

ORTON over Bray – well my first misstep. Make no mistake though, most everyone thinks Bray should have won this. 2-3

AJ STYLES over Shane – I had a feeling about Shane but I did officially pick AJ. I was sure the match would be better than expected and it was. 3-4

SETH over Triple H – I was way off! Way, Way way off. 3-5

OWENS over Jericho – Wrong again. The pick was mostly about the fact that no one was picking Jericho. 3-6

CENA and NIKKI over Miz and Maryse – Nailed it, with the proposal too. 4-7

DEAN over Corbin – Right on the money with this one but Corbin will get this title soon. 5-8

BAYLEY over Sasha, Charlotte, and Nia – Another one right! Although I was expecting the Sasha heel turn. It didn’t happen but it will. 6-9

HARDY BOYZ over Enzo and Cass, Cesaro and Sheamus, and Gallows and Anderson – would have been very difficult to predict this one. 6-10

NAOMI wins SDL Women’s title – very happy I was right about this one 7-11

NEVILLE over Aries – I thought this was a really good match as expected. And I got it right 8-12

MOJO wins The DRE’ – Pretty sure no one saw that coming. 8-13

I was concerned about time but Mania went until Midnight eastern this year and they did shorten some matches but the big ones had enough time so it really wasn’t an issue.

While this was a bit of a predictable Wrestlemania, I’ll take 8 correct out of 13 matches. From here on out I’ll be here for you to stop by and get some predictions for all the PPV’s.

Predictions sure to be Wrong – Probably.

I remember being a little kid and the big debate between my friends was, at that time, is that pro wrestling stuff on TV real or fake? The industry had not pulled the curtain back yet. For us kids, we weren't sure. The adults in my life told me it was fake and that's why it was so "stupid" to watch. But even at that early age I was hooked. We all were. Most of my friends stopped watching over time. We all figured out that it surely was scripted and the big events drew some friends back in sometimes. I never left. This was the mid 80's. Any thoughts I had of ever turning the TV off were quickly swept away when I heard about Wrestlemania. It was going to be like nothing else we've ever seen. And it was. That was a long, long time ago. I've been on board ever since. If I had to choose, I'd say Bret Hart is my all-time favorite. Other than wrestling, I like movies, star wars, MLB (Yankees), NFL (Cowboys), GoT, TWD, and great debates. I live in Connecticut and can be found all over the state and sometimes in NYC.
