Walking into WrestleMania 33, the Reigns vs. Undertaker match looks like it can only have one possible ending: Reigns taking the win, and dethroning a legend of the business. High-flying champion Neville will meet Austin Aries, a former TNA and ROH World Heavyweight champion who served as a member of the WWE 205 Live commentary team until recently. Last year, he won 89.3 percent of the matches he was in. Should they steal the show for the second WrestleMania in a row, the women will be that much closer to headlining the PPV. PWInsider has now confirmed that Ross will be calling the WWE Universal Title match between Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg. Royal Rumble victor Randy Orton.
The match itself with McMahon may prove to be better than advertised. The Mizanins cut deeply personal promos about what bad, plastic, shallow, fake human beings Cena and Nikki were, eventually culminating in their magnum opus: Total Bullshit, a multi-part “lost episode” brutally skewering Total Bellas, the spinoff to Total Divas.
The Great American Bash started in the old NWA territory, was taken over by Jim Crockett Promotions which became World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and ultimately ended up in WWE when they purchased WCW. We will see the in-ring returns of Naomi, Maryse, Shane McMahon and The Undertaker. This time, the match will be against AJ Styles, who was not happy about the change for the number one contenders match after Orton’s announcement. There’s the super scientific science of Opposite Momentum to consider (whoever is on top during the last TV appearance of a feud will lose the PPV match). After a heated argument between the two, AJ Styles attacked Shane on the following episode of WWE SmackDown.
Despite the fact that the outcomes are pre-determined, bets can be made on all 13 matches slated for Sunday night’s event.
“So many of them knew my wife and many of them reached out endlessly in the last 10 days, which has really been cool”, Ross said. The holy grail of professional wrestling takes place on Sunday night in Orlando, Fla., with the collective eyes of the wrestling world fixated on WrestleMania 33.
After WWE announced earlier this week that the match would be on the Kickoff Show, fans started using the hashtag #GiveSDWomenAChance. A changing of the guard may be in order, and it may just be the ideal opportunity for Roman Reigns to officially begin his reign.
In the case of Roman Reigns, I think there is a subset of the fanbase that doesn’t like to be force-fed – doesn’t like to be told “this is the guy we should be cheering for”. Triple H in a non-sanctioned match. Some may disagree but I believe Triple H consistently delivers on the biggest stage and Seth Rollins is more than capable of being his opponent on that stage. This is another match where I think Corbin benefits from the win more, but they’ll keep the title on Ambrose. Will there be other surprises? During the attack, Rollins suffered an injury on the same knee that left him out of action for most of 2016. Every wrestler wants their very own “WrestleMania Moment” but only so many actually get to achieve that dream. A non-sanctioned match means Rollins can not sue the company if he suffers a serious injury. Champion Alexa Bliss will defend her title against Becky Lynch, Naomi, Mickie James, Carmella and Natalya and the probability of her emerging with the championship belt is unlikely. Last week, she returned and attacked all participants in the match. I think the odds are tilted toward this being his ride off into the sunset, with the potential of some kind of nostalgia trip down the line. Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax will try stop Bayley from walking out champion.
WrestleMania 33 gets in progress this end of the week and it guarantees to be something exceptional. Lesnar finally got the upper hand just a few weeks ago on Raw with an F5, and through it all Heyman has been the glue holding what should be a ridiculous and unbelievable conflict solidly together.
RAW tag team championship: Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson defend against teams of Sheamus Cesaro and Enzo Amore Big Cass in three way ladder match.
It is one of the hardest matches to predict with any certainty on the card.
Returning to the WWE in 2012, Lesnar faced John Cena after an 8 year hiatus.
John Cena Nikki Bella vs.
– United States Championship match: No match had a better storyline leading to it. That changed when Jericho held a Festival of Friendship and was attacked by Kevin Owens.
So, Goldberg winning the match will come out as an ultimate swerve.
– Lesnar vs. Goldberg: Goldberg has had his way with Lesnar, beating him in under two minutes at their first encounter in Toronto at Survivor Series, then eliminating him at the Royal Rumble.
