WrestleMania 37 Day 1 Predictions
Match 1: Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley (C) for the WWE Championship
Despite the outpouring of support for Lashley for his championship win on Raw a few weeks ago, McIntyre did not win in front of fans last year at WrestleMania in the main event win vs Brock Lesnar. Because of this, I believe the crowd wants to see this. I believe this match will begin the showcase of the immortals. Prediction: Drew McIntyre wins.
Match 2: The New Day (C) vs Omos & AJ Styles for the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions
The New Day is the fan favorite to win because of the performances put on to recover the titles by Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. This is the first instance where all members of the New Day walk into Wrestlemania as champions. This is Omos’ in-ring debut, with a partner in the phenomenal AJ Styles to further exemplify their talents together. The New Day has walked into many WrestleMania’s was the new champs, but have rarely walked out as the champions.
Prediction: The New Day wins.
Match 3: Bad Bunny & Damien Priest vs The Miz & John Morrison
Bad Bunny’s in-ring debut is set to be incredibly special for him because this is a dream of his that will be fulfilled. Priest has undeniable talent and will bring all of it to the table against former WWE champion The Miz and his best friend John Morrison. These two have been at WrestleMania beforehand and there isn’t anybody better to face the combination of Priest and Bad Bunny.
Prediction: Bad Bunny & Damien Priest win.
Math 4: Cesaro vs Seth Rollins
Rollin has had some of the most memorable WrestleMania moments in recent history. His new and improved version of himself has been hot for the fans with his no-care attitude and his flashy suits. However, Cesaro has been showcasing himself as the great singles star that he is. I believe this Mania match will further show his singles talents and will power him into a future WWE Universal Championship match. Cesaro’s time is finally here, and I believe the match with Seth Rollins will steal the show.
Prediction: Cesaro wins.
Match 5: Shane McMahon vs Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage Match
Shane McMahon’s recently WrestleMania appearances have always been incredible. Everybody knows this man is crazy to put his body on the line the way he does, and that nobody risks it at a more excellent time than him. But this is the monster among men in Strowman we are talking about. Strowman as a face is dominant in the same way he is as a heel, and he did succeed in last years’ Mania as well. He’s doing this for himself and for the fans, and I think this will be a push towards the main even title matches in near future.
Prediction: Braun Strowman wins.
Naomi & Lana vs Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke vs The Riott Squad vs Natalya & Tamina vs Billie Kay & Carmella in a Tag Team Turmoil match. Winner faces Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler on Sunday
There isn’t a doubt in my mind any of these teams can be victorious in this match. Naomi and Lana have been a crowd pleasing combination since Lana defeated Jax in a match on Raw a few weeks back. After their opportunity was sabotaged for the title, I could see this happening. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke are a powerhouse team and have feuded with Jax and Baszler enough times to the point where their victory is coming. This is the same instance for the Riott Squad, the realest tag team in this match, who have deserved this title since debuting. It is obvious these two deserve the opportunity once again to face the champs. Natalya and Tamina have been dominating the Smackdown women’s division as of late in the mantra that they absolutely deserve a shot at the titles, and that this is something they were made to do. The Samoan and Hart Dynasty’s respectively rest on their shoulders as their carry history into this WrestleMania. As for Billie Kay and Carmella, they are entertaining to listen and watch. Billie Kay will no doubt entertain and keep us smiling, and with Carmella it is inevitable that these two will be a bit of a surprise during the match. Any of these women are deserving of having the opportunity of facing Jax and Baszler on Sunday.
Prediction: Lana & Naomi win.
Match 6: Sasha Banks (C) vs Bianca Belair for the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship (Main Event)
Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair have had an incredible year. Belair debuted on Smackdown and immediately made her presence known in her small rivalry with Bayley. The Royal Rumble match solidified her talent and readiness to be on the biggest stage of them all. Sasha Banks, after defeating Bayley in the amazing Hell in a Cell Match last summer, she has been on a rollercoaster only going upwards in the best version of her championship reigns. She looks a lot like NXT Sasha Banks, and the WWE universe has been here for it. Banks has never won at Wrestlemania with a record of 0–5 in her past matches, so it’s interesting to see how this will play out. This match is the main event of the evening and will hold to that; inevitably finishing the show with an even bigger bang than started it.
Prediction: Sasha Banks wins.
