Wrestlemania Backlash 2021 Predictions

By: Justin Hopkins

The name of this PPV makes me not want to watch. I like to try and find the pros and not really like to dwell on negative, but this is pretty much a one match card. The wrestling should be good, because these wrestlers are some of the best that has ever been in the company, but the booking has just been dreadful and that is the sad part. This could all be so much better if they put forth the slightest of effort and not been pumping out some of the worst episodes of Raw. Enough wallowing, lets jump in and try to Predict to the best of my ability.

Damian Priest vs The Miz Lumberjack Match

We kick things off with the rivalry that just won’t die. Hopefully this will be the end, with what I expect will also be the end of the team of The Miz and John Morrison. Priest can get the win and move on to something better.

Winner – Damian Priest

Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match – Dominik and Rey Mysterio vs The Dirty Dogs (Champions)

Now, I have enjoyed The Dirty Dogs as Tag Team Champions. Dolph And Roode have got really got chemistry together as a team. It is unfortunate that they haven’t gotten to defend those belts many times since they won them and I believe this has been their first defense on PPV. Doubly so since I don’t think they are retaining them here. It’ll be a good match but at the end, think we are looking at the first Father and Son Tag Team Champions.

Winner and New Smackdown Tag Team Champions – Dominik and Rey Mysterio

Smackdown Women’s Championship Match – Bayley vs Bianca (Champion)

This will be a great match if given the time. Both of these women are just uber talented in the ring. Wish they would have booked Bayley to be more of a threat. The shape of the Smackdown Women’s Division though. It was either Bayley or Sasha. Since Carmella has just been brought back last week, same with Ruby and Liv. So, yeah, Bayley is really the best option. See what I mean about the booking. Anyways, we aren’t seeing a loss here. Bianca is just getting going.

Winner and still Smackdown Women’s Champion – Bianca Belair

Raw Women’s Championship Match – Asuka vs Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley (Champion)

There are not enough obscenities to describe how much I hate this match. I am not talking about it. Just make Rhea a world ending babyface. Charlotte should be rivaling with Alexa. Give Sonya Deville, Nikki Cross to work with. Let Nikki just destroy the Women’s Roster while Sonya slides it under the rug. Spinning her path of destruction as a way to show Pearce can’t control the locker room to usurp power, and build Nikki up in the process to face Rhea at Summerslam, and stop making Asuka look bad.

Winner and still Raw Women’s Champion – Rhea Ripley

WWE Championship Triple Threat Match – Braun Strowman vs Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley (Champion)

I enjoy the fact that MVP has been talking about the fact Bobby lost his U.S Title in a triple Threat when he wasn’t involved in the finish. MVP has really been an amazing manager in all of this. Of course it’ll be a good match, but it is still way to early for the belt to come off the Almighty One.

Winner and still WWE Championship Match – Bobby Lashley

Universal Championship Match – Cesaro vs Roman Reigns (Champion)

My head tells me that he doesn’t have a chance. That my only hope to see what I want, is he gets cheated out of the win. To go on and win Money In The Bank and use it to demand the rematch and then win the strap in front of a crowd, but I can’t bring myself to go against The Swiss Superman. The only thing keeping me going in WWE, this year, has been the fact Cesaro has been getting the push he so, so deserves, and even if it tanks a pick. I am going for it.

Winner and New Universal Champion – Cesaro

Sorry for being more negative, but I hope you enjoyed and as always….

WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 Predictions

By: Justin Hopkins

And here we are, at our first stop on our road to Wrestlemania, the Elimination Chamber. Which kind of shows how Bi-Polar WWE’s Booking truly is. Some of the bad is not their fault, while others is absolutely on them. Not saying that it is all bad. What they are doing right is exciting and the wrestling, at the very least, should be awesome and if you couldn’t tell with the thumbnail, super excited for one match in particularly. So, lets dive in and try to predict this whopping four.. maybe five match card.

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP – RIDDLE VS KEITH LEE(?) VS BOBBY LASHLEY(C)

Alright, so according to the rumor mill and announce team on Raw, Keith was injured and position in the match may be up in the air. Personally. think it is a work and he will be fine. Certainly hoping so, otherwise we are looking at another match between Riddle and Bobby and getting tired of the feud between Riddle and the Hurt Business. They are fully capable of having feuds with others and the sad part is, think this is going to continue. Think they are looking to change it up though, and by that, I mean Lashley will be dropping his title to one Riddle and have him chase to Wrestlemania.

Winner and new United States Champion – Riddle

RAW’S WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – ASUKA (C) VS ??? (LACEY EVANS)

Before I get to the prediction, I am very happy for Lacey Evans and her family on the pregnancy’s and hope for nothing but the best.

What am I suppose to say about this? They knew Monday that Lacey was Pregnant and instead of trying to get Asuka another opponent, they ran some stupid story that implied that Ric is the baby Daddy. Asuka is one of the best wrestlers on the roster. She gives great to memorable matches and her promos are gleaming with passion. When lockdown was happening and WWE was scrambling trying to figure out how to do this, she was paving the way and making the shows so much better and is thanked with no story. This was a title match based around Charlotte. Asuka hasn’t had her own story since she feuded with Sasha and Bayley. Which in a way, was more their story than hers. Some theories for replacement, if they don’t just drop it entirely. Rhea Ripley, which I would love to see happen, with a proper story leading to Wrestlemania. Rhea and Asuka could legit put on a five star match that would threaten to steal the show, or Charlotte and have her take the title to defend it against Rhea and get Rhea her win back. Which is only happening because they have to fix the damage they made last year when Charlotte beat Rhea. It is amazing how they have this caliber of talent and can’t book a show.

Winner – They drop the match and bring Rhea up tomorrow and start booking for a ONE-ON-ONE match between Rhea and Asuka at Mania.

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH – KOFI KINGSTON VS JEFF HARDY VS AJ STYLES VS RANDY ORTON VS SHEAMUS VS DREW MCINTYRE(C)

Alright, back to happier things. I can’t understand the reason behind the idea of Drew dropping the belt to win it back in front of the crowd at Wrestlemania. It get that it is side, but he’ll get the pop he deserves arriving as Champion and it will be just as glorious instead of trying to manufacture the moment. This match should be great. Probably see a lot of story threads occurring. Kofi losing because of Retribution and can see Orton being taken out by The Fiend. I think he will leave the pod and be instantly abducted somewhere else and Drew picking up the victory and setting up Edge to pick him for Mania and more on why later.

Winner and still WWE Champion- Drew McIntyre

ELIMINATION CHAMBER WHERE THE WINNER GETS A SHOT AT THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP – KING CORBIN VS SAMI ZAYN VS DANIEL BRYAN VS JEY USO VS KEVIN OWENS VS CESARO

This match is going to be incredible. These six guys are going to destroy one another in what is just going to be an amazing match where you can make a case for each of them to win this match, but.. I can’t go against it. For the first time in so long. Cesaro is finally, at long last getting his push, that he has worked so hard for, and I am fully behind it. Owens has had multiple shots. Daniel Bryan can get a title match at any time. Jey’s redemption is still cooking, and it won’t be heel vs heel, but could easily be way to turn Sami face which would be nice, but no. It’s time for the Cesaro Section to stand up and Cesaro takes this match.

Winner – Cesaro

UNVIERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP CESARO VS ROMAN REIGNS

Cesaro isn’t going to win this. Got to be realistic, but think about this. Cesaro wins a grueling Chamber Match, gets beaten down by Jey as Roman makes his way down, but Cesaro gets one big shot in before losing, and we are off from here. Cesaro making a big push to become number one contender at Fast Lane to take on Roman at Mania. Just think about the crowd reaction to finally seeing someone they have been wanting to see have his moment. Drew vs Edge would be stellar, but this could be a great match for someone who has been there all along, and seeds can be planted here.

Winner and still Universal Champion – Roman Reigns

As always, I hope you enjoyed and….

Royal Rumble 2021 Predictions

By: Justin Hopkins

It is the most magical time of the year. Better than any holidays or celebrations or even Wrestlemania itself, it’s the Royal Rumble. That greatest stipulation match. Pitting thirty wrestlers against one another and anything and everything can happen. From surprise entrances to heartbreaking eliminations. Circus like performances to stave off eliminations, all in the hope to be the one to point at the Wrestlemania sign, and this year is especially difficult to predict. Doing such a good job building a several potential winners in both Rumbles and to a point, that is both exciting and terrifying. With some really exciting choices, yet the building sense of grief of them picking someone who could royally torpedo the entire Road To Wrestlemania before it even begins. So, lets dive in and try to predict the Royal Rumble Card shall we.

WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – Nia Jax and Shayna Bazler vs Asuka and Charlotte Flair

We will start with the one that doesn’t matter. They have put less than minimum effort to make these titles feel special. Asuka is double champion who has almost nothing to do and Nia Jax is a constant concern that she will injure her opponent, but I am still going to pick Nia and Shayna because putting the belts on Charlotte and Asuka was a mistake to begin with and maybe they book in a good story. This really should have gone with the Riott Squad.

Winners and new Women’s Tag Team Champions – Nia Jax and Shayna Bazler

SMACKDOWN’S WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – Carmella vs Sasha Banks

This has been a fun little rivalry, and we got to see Reginald show off a bit of his Circus roots and something small for Sasha to do following her rivalry with Bayley and Carmella is a lot better than most people give her credit for. I do expect Sasha to retain her belt in what should be a pretty solid match.

Winner and still Women’s Champion – Sasha Banks

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH – GOLDBERG VS DREW MCINTYRE

Drew… For the love of everything, Drew.

Winner and still WWE Champion – Drew McIntyre ( Seriously, do no put the belt on Goldberg.)

UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP – KEVIN OWENS VS ROMAN REIGNS

I would love to see Kevin win this one. he has been so good on the build up to this and deserves another run with the belt, but I don’t see it happening here. Not at the expense of Roman Reigns, who has saved himself from the never ending void of terrible booking and made himself WWE’s biggest villains. I expect these two to just kill one another and when it seems that they will both be counted out, a returning Jimmy will hold Roman up on his feet. Making the family whole.

Winner and still Universal Champion – Roman Reigns

WOMEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE

This one I think is going to be more tricky to predict. Tend to pull from the legend and alum pool to fill out the numbers. It’ll probably kick off the show. I think that Bianca will be the Ironwoman of the match and will be the one to inevitably be the one to knock out the “Monster” Nia Jax, but will be knocked out by Bayley and while she is celebrating, will be eliminated by Charlotte. It’ll come down to Charlotte, Rhea, Shayna and Raquel Gonzales, with Rhea waling away the winner.

Winner – Rhea Ripley

MEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE

This can be a lot of fun and completely nightmare fuel and the fact they can control the crowd reaction with a button is what makes this scary. Would love to see Randy get number one, upset by the early entry and get even more angry when number two is Edge, but this will go out the window when they reveal the number one and two are announced on Backstage on Saturday. I expect this to be a lot of fun and wouldn’t mind seeing Brock come back for it, but could this be the year. The year I never thought would come. the year they finally give the Swiss Superman the recognition that has been long overdue. May not be the smart choice, but I have to believe that this will be the year of Cesaro.

Winner – Cesaro

While WWE has been a wild ride of some massive highest and ugly lows. Can put it all aside, for the best PPV on the calendar and I can’t wait to see what happens at this year’s Royal Rumble. As always, I hope you enjoyed and….
