It’s that time of year. It’s Wrestlemania Weekend and this year’s show has the biggest match of the past ten years, The Rock vs. John Cena!

To celebrate, I’m giving you my predictions for Wrestlemania XXVII. Click below to see what I believe will be match order, winners and why I think they’ll win.

World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus.

Winner: Sheamus.

Why: For the past year Sheamus has been being built for this moment. He’s won the Royal Rumble and is a vicious ass kicker. Daniel Bryan is the best technical wrestler on the roster and Sheamus defeating him will only add to his legitimacy as an ass kicker. It’s ironic that last year these two had a match for the US title but were taken off the card so WWE could showcase their video packages to an audience that already bought the show. Hopefully, that will motivate these two to have a show stealing match.

 

Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes vs. The Big Show

Winner: The Big Show.

Why: For long term growth of the company Cody should win but with the way they’ve been building the match, it’s looks like Big Show will be giving Cody his comeuppance.

 

Team Johnny: David Otunga & Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger & Mark Henry & Miz & Drew McIntyre vs. Team Teddy: Santino Marella & Great Khali & Zack Ryder & Kofi Kingston & R Truth & Booker T.

Winner: Team Johnny with David Otunga pinning Zack Ryder.

Why: Though I have little interest in this match and have no desire to see Johnny Ace on my TV, knowing WWE Creative and their insistence on shoving him down our throats, his team is going to win. Otunga will pin Ryder because a) they’re pushing him because he’s Jennifer Hudson’s fiancée b) to punish Ryder for getting over on his own.

 

Randy Orton vs. Kane

Winner: Randy Orton

Why: Orton needs a solid win to get back in the Main Event picture and what better way to do so by defeating WWE’s resident monster.

 

WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho

Winner: CM Punk

Why: Punk NEEDS to win this match. Since last summer, CM Punk has been the hottest name in wrestling, thanks to the scathing promo he cut against WWE management. Name one wrestler (other than the Rock) that has been interviewed by GQ? The only thing Punk needs to truly elevate him as the man to carry this company is a Wrestlemania moment. Defeating Chris Jericho will be that moment. This definitely has the potential to be the show stealer.

 
The Undertaker vs. HHH in Hell in A Cell with Shawn Michaels as special referee.

Winner: The Undertaker.

Why: The streak has to endure. It’s the one thing in wrestling that cannot be taken back. It would also be really sad if Vince’s son-in-law were the one to end the Undertaker’s Wrestlemania winning streak.

 

WWE Divas champ Beth Phoenix & Eve Torres vs. Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos.

Winner: Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos- Maria pins Eve.

Why: Access Hollywood photo-op.

 

The Rock vs. John Cena

Winner: John Cena.

Why: At Wrestlemania III, Andre the Giant put over Hulk Hogan. At Wrestlemania X8, Hulk Hogan put over the Rock. Now it’s Rock turn to pass the torch and Cena the guy WWE wants to carry it, whether you love it or hate it.
