WWE WrestleMania 32 Predictions!

I can't believe Wrestlemania 32 is taking place this Sunday. Not sure if it's because the road to the PPV never picked speed, but it doesn't feel like we're days away from WWE’s Christmas. Anyways, the card is surprisingly solid. Tons of matches I'm excited to see. It's just that the buildup hasn't been ideal. With that being said, here are my thoughts on each match, alongside my predictions.

1. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. Sin Cara vs. Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Stardust vs. The Miz (Intercontinental Title Ladder Match)

To be honest, a part of me wanted the IC title match to be a singles contest between Owens and Zayn, but I'm actually excited for the match. For the second Mania in a row, the Intercontinental belt will be on the line in a 7 man ladder match. Sadly, many injuries from guys like Cesaro, Luke Harper and Neville have left us with a bizarre lineup. While KO, Zayn and Ziggler make sense, it’s weird to see other names like Stardust, Zack Ryder and Sin Cara. Still, I'm glad that everyone is getting their Mania match, and I'm sure the bout will be full of crazy, exciting spots. I think KO is retaining, but guys like Zayn and Ryder could get it.
Prediction: Kevin Owens 

2. The New Day vs. The League of Nations

WWE has made a lot of booking mistakes in the last couple of months, but they have nailed the New Day. I was scared that their face turn would decrease their comedy and originality. Luckily, they're just as wild as they were a month ago, and the crowd can finally cheer them without feeling guilty. This is not a championship match, so in my head, this match was strictly created to put New Day over big time. Rumors are saying the Rock will show up to help them. Obviously, I think New Day is winning. Any other result would be disappointing, to say they least.
Prediction: NEW DAY

3. Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch (Divas Title)

I'm super excited for this match. The program hasn't been spectacular, but it's the first time in a couple of years that the Divas match seems to be as important as some of the male bouts. The crowd will get behind them, and as long as they're given the right amount of time, it should be an excellent match. I don't think Becky will get it, so that leaves us with Sasha and Charlotte. I think Sasha will get the Mania moment earning the belt.
Prediction: Sasha Banks

4. Ryback vs. Kalisto (U.S. Title)

I'm so disappointed in the way this match has been booked...oh wait, it hasn't even been booked. These guys barely got TV time, and they're just fighting because...it's Wrestlemania? I feel like booking doesn't know the ending to this match. If most of the matches are won by faces, Ryback's winning. If most matches are won by heels, Kalisto is winning. Considering Kalisto is the new Latin star, I'm going with him.
Prediction: Kalisto

5. AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho

AJ Styles will perform at WrestleMania. How crazy is that!? This will be a fun, fast-paced match that sees Jericho passing the torch. I believe 2016 will be a big year for AJ, and what a better way to kick it off than a win at the biggest stage of them all, against an absolute legend
Prediction: AJ Styles

6. Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose (Street Fight Match)

This match is going to steal the show! If booked right, Dean could look like Stone Cold at Mania 13. Withstanding a bunch of pain without giving up. It'll make him look like a superstar, and the crowd is going to love it. I predict Lesnar will go in, suplex Dean about 15 times and win the street fight. Also, hope Ambrose uses the tools Mick Foley and Terry Funk gave him. BLOOD OR WE RIOT!
Prediction: Brock Lesnar

7. Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon (Hell in a Cell)

This match might not be the most technical or impressive one on paper, but I can't wait to see these two go at it.  On top of that, I'm not sure who's coming out on top. If Shane wins, the idea of another brand split is fresh and exciting. At the same time, Undertaker is not losing at Mania again, is he? I genuinely don't know who's getting this one, but I'm putting my money on Shane (HERE COMES THE MONEY).
Prediction: Shane McMahon

8. Triple H vs. Roman Reigns (WWE World Heavyweight Championship)

For a couple of weeks, I couldn't believe how loud the crowds kept booing Roman. And I couldn't believe WWE was actually giving him the victory on the main event of Mania. The more I thought about it, the less worried I got. There's no way Vince doesn't know that the crowd is going to boo Reigns. Just like Rollins cashing in last year, something's going to happen. A legend interfering? A heel Reigns defeating the king of kings? HHH going over? Not sure, but if Reigns leaves the stadium with the gold, it'll be in a controversial fashion.
Prediction: Roman Reigns
