WrestleMania 32 is quickly approaching us on the 4th of April! Around just over 2 weeks until the event hits our screens. Unless you happen to be one of the lucky people who are attending the event in person.
There has been plenty said online about the prepared events so far, with a myriad of opinions being put forward. Some people are happy, some are not.
In our opinion, it isn’t the matches themselves which can be criticised, but the build up to the event itself. Usually at this time in the year, I’d be sitting, waiting, excited about what was approaching. The grand daddy of them all! But…I’m just not that excited. It just feels like any other PPV.
Most of the discussion comes with the headline act. Roman Reigns and Triple H. Now, I think it is pretty safe to say that the vast majority of people are not that excited towards the prospect of Roman Reigns walking out of WrestleMania 32 with the title around his waist. I mean, honestly, I think WWE creative and Vince McMahon would have to be genuinely delusional to think that they can pull that off with any sort of positive reaction as everything currently stands. The only way I can see it vaguely working, is if Roman Reigns turns heel in some way. Everyone hates him anyway, might as well make it your intention instead of trying to force everyone to like him, right?
Anyway, here are some early predictions for the matches which have been announced so far on the WrestleMania 32 card:
3rd Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
So far, the only people who have actually been confirmed to be taking part in this, are the members of the social outcasts, and I think we can safely say those jobbers won’t be winning anything this WrestleMania.
If we were to make an educated guess. Last years winner, Big Show, will likely be an entrant, and based on his size, it would make little sense for him to be irrelevant in the Battle Royal. Also, last year, we saw NXT’s Hideo Itami enter the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Therefore, we may see more people come from NXT, as it has been clear in the last 12 months that the impact of NXT has severely grown.
We have seen many new additions to the roster over the past 12 months. Included in that list is Braun Strowman. If we were to have a guess purely on sheer domination. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Braun Strowman walk away the winner, as he has very little else going on.
Returning from injury? – Could we potentially see someone like Cesaro return from injury to dominate the Battle Royal? It is unlikely, but it is something we have our fingers crossed for. We are definitely missing the Swiss Superman here at WhatWrestling.
#1 Prediction – Braun Strowman
#2 Prediction – Someone from NXT (Likely Finn Balor or Samoa Joe, depending on previous night’s result)
Lucky Guess – Cesaro
