    So the "Well I got that wrong" thread made me think we could maybe make predictions for the year ahead?

    Maybe then revisit at the end of the year to see how we did.

    Thinking 5 predictions each. Can be completely out there if you want since it is just for fun. I would just ask that a few be for further in the year than Mania since there are so many rumours doing the rounds for Mania and before it.

    Have to think of some myself so if anyone else wants to start, go ahead. Just wanted to get this posted when I thought of it.

    So will AJ become WWE WHC champion? Big Show to be consistent as only one of face or heel for the full year? :)

    Let the fun begin :p

    CM Punk to return
    Reigns to become world champ
    The big Cena heel turn
    Ambrose or Bryan to win the rumble
    Finn Bálor and Sami Zayn to ppv debut in the rumble match



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,379 ✭✭✭IncognitoMan

    The former shield members to main event a ppv (I'm thinking summerslam) in a triple threat for the wwe belt

    Cena to overtake flair's record this year.

    Cesaro to have his best year in wwe and be one of the top heels by the end of 2015

    Macho Man will finally be inducted into the HOF

    Balor to be intercontinental or US champion

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,216 ✭✭✭Ageyev

    Some serious picks there Liz!

    I reckon Steve Austin will work Mania next year. Gonna hold off on other predictions until next month

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,992 ✭✭✭✭Rjd2

    1.Big Show Will Turn face again.
    2.Big Show will turn heel when nobody expects it in a few months.
    3.Big Show will turn face when nobody expects it a few months after that.
    4.Big Show will once again swerve the WWE universe with a much needed heel turn not to long after that.
    5. Profit:confused:

  • Registered Users Posts: 28,787 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy

    I was going to predict Big Show face turn but realised there's still a month left in this year in which it could happen.

    - The Ambrose/Rollins feud will continue
    - There will be a big face turn that isn't Big Show or Randy. Same with a heel turn. Possibly on the same night. I'll say Rollins face turn.
    - We will see a big return that isn't the usual suspects(Austin, Rock, Jericho) or Punk
    - Bryan won't compete until after Mania
    - Big E will main event at least one PPV (I'm not giving up on him)

    Bonus: Nxt predictions include a Breeze title run, call up for Zayn, Neville and Balor with that being the reason he won't get a title run in nxt), Balor will be the more successful of them though week be close and may even be Rollins/Ambrose levels

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,448 ✭✭✭Garseys

    WWE Network to Launch in UK (early to mid 2015)
    Cesaro to be released :(
    Brocks contract not to be renewed, debuts for Bellator MMA.
    Daniel Bryan to get a huge push once he returns.
    3 top NXT stars to debut night after Wrestlemania (Balor, Zayn and Neville)
    Bayley to be called up aswell.
    All 3 former shield members to hold the title at least once.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch

    A re-split of the WWE & WHC belts.
    A MITB cash-in at either Wrestlemania or MITB itself.
    Sting to not have a match at Wrestlemania.
    DDP will go into the Hall of Fame.
    One of Kenta/Devitt/Zayn to leave or be released before their main roster debut.
    Undertaker to have one last match, but not at Wrestlemania.
    Shane McMahon to make a return.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,417 ✭✭✭WinnyThePoo

    * As the groutch said Shane McMahon to return.
    * Prince Devitt to get appearance at the royal rumble, but won't actually really debut after Wrestlemania.
    * Cena to be out for a long spell with injury.
    * Reigns to an abject failure and be pushed to midcard.
    * Miz to get seriously over.
    * Rollins to blow cash-in.

  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭nasty_crash

    Kenta to be dropped - or at least stay in NXT for the whole of 2015
    Undertaker not wrestling at mania
    Undertaker, Macho Man & DDP will be the HOF class of 2015
    Ziggler will be World Champ at some stage
    Reigns to win and break every record that has ever been recorded in wwe (much to my annoyance)
    Reigns to be World Champ
    Rollins not to be World Champ
    Sandow to be released

    Bonus Prediction - to say that im never watching WWE again that its stupid production - stupid show - wasting wrestlers - writers are crap - pushing the wrong people - at least 40 times in the year... and still watch it the next week!

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 18,258 CMod ✭✭✭✭Nody

    Ziggler to be world champ only to let his mouth run again and go back in the dog house
    Sting vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania
    Bryan to main event Wrestlemania
    At least two in the former shield to go into the dog house
    Kenta to go up on the main rooster but fail due to being written poorly
    AJ to leave WWE to have a child

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd

    Rollins to unsuccessfully cash in MITB
    Ron Mysterious to return and get injured.
    Sting to fight at Mania, possibly against HHH.
    Brock to lose the titles to Roman Reigns, after he has won the Rumble
    Sami Zayn to join the main roster.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,159 ✭✭✭mrkiscool2

    Rollins to cash in at WM 31 against Reigns
    Ambrose to be World Champ by the end of the year
    Finn Balor to be a top guy by the end of the year after entering the Rumble early and being the Ironman of the match before debuting properly the Raw after WM 31

    Sting vs Taker at WM 31
    Kenta to be a heel
    Zayn, CJ Parker and Neville to be called up to the main roster along with Charlotte, Bayley but not Becky
    Rusev gets beat by Cena at WM lol

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭Machismo Fan

    Let's try this again: TNA will have a better 2015 than 2014. Mostly because that really shouldn't be that hard.

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,787 ✭✭✭✭CSF

    Rollins to successfully cashin his MITB case on Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania.

    A bumper Wrestlemania card featuring Lesnar v Reigns, HHH v Sting, Cena v Rollins, Ryback v Rusev, and Wyatt v Orton, leaving, Ziggler and Ambrose without obvious feuds suggesting that somebody will have turned by then. My guess is Ambrose

    Ziggler to be involved in the Elimination Chamber match but get no singles PPV matches for the title. Expect a heelturn.

    Lesnar not to feature in 2015 after his Wrestlemania defeat.

    Nobody from NXT to hit the ground running and reach the upper card by the end of 2015.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac

    Seth Rollins to cash in Money In The Bank on Roman Reigns after he has just beaten Brock Lesnar for the championship in the main event of WrestleMania XXXI. Lots of people have said it, and for the last couple of weeks I have been kind of hoping that he hangs onto the case and cashes it in against whoever takes the title from Brock, immediately after they have won it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,846 ✭✭✭Moneymaker

    1) Daniel Bryan will be WWE Champion in 2015
    2) We'll finally get the Shield triple threat match
    3) Sandow will become one of the most over babyfaces on the roster.
    4) Devitt will debut on the main roster and become one of the top guys.
    5) Charlotte will win the Diva's title at WM.
    6) Ryback will be the guy to beat Rusev.
    7) Roman Reigns will bomb as the top guy.
    8) Cesaro will quit the company, frustrated with how he's been handled.
    9) The Ascension will dominate the tag team division.
    10) Adam Rose will be released.

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,632 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter

    Devitt / Baylor to have a lengthy IC title reign.

    The WWE to realize Roman reigns is not ready to be the top guy yet and nor go with him to beat Brock in the mania main event.

    Sandow to be over Luke crazy but not rise to the main event level

    Adam Rose to be future endeavored

    Ziggler to be the new Daniel Bryan I.e held back underdog.

    Bryan to get a huge push upon his return and get the world title back

    Charlotte, Sami Zayn, Neville & Batley to all make the main roster by the night after mania.

    Charlotte to quickly become divas champ

    The new day to be mid card with maybe a Kofi / Big E tag title run.

    A HHH vs Vince McMahon feud where Vince is represented by someone else (Rock, Sting etc)

    Steen to spend most of the year in NXT just like Becky

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,632 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter

    I've got more...

    AJ lee to leave to be with her Husband who will not return to the WWE in 2015

    Bray Wyatt to start recruiting a new family

    former Wyatt family member Rowen (whom I do think is much improved) to slowly drift away from prominence allowing him to be released in 2016

    Zack Ryder to spend more time on WWE youtube shows than in a WWE ring (at least on TV) but still keep his job

    Christian to retire from WWE

    John Cena to get injured and be out for a few months but come back early again

    Batista to return and actually put over a good few young talents while the crowd continue to enjoy sh!tting on him

    The Macho Man to finally enter the HOF

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,589 ✭✭✭irish_stevo815

    The Rock to be a surprise entrant in the Rumble...HHH also.

    Daniel Bryan to win back the World title at SummerSlam.

    Brock Lesnar to leave after losing title at Wrestlemania (LOL-CENA-WINS)

    Titles to be spilt in 2 by end of year (WWE/World Title)

    Paul Heyman announced as new GM of Raw.

    Ryder, Titus o Neil, Fandango, R-Truth to be future endeavoured.

    Sting vs HHH at Mania.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭A Brad Maddox Guy

    Couldn't decide whether to make serious predictions, fantasy booking predictions or ridiculous ones that'll never happen. So it's a bit of each.

    1. Wrestlemania Main Event will be a/ John Cena vs Brock Lesnar. *shudder* Cena wins, Rollins cashes in on RAW. or b/ Brock vs Rock. Rollins cashes in on the night.
    2. Daniel Bryan to not wrestle at all in 2015 but to return at the 2016 Royal Rumble.
    3. The Shield Triple Threat will happen, most likely at Summerslam for the WWE Title.
    4. Ziggler will turn heel.
    5. Big Show will be off screen for a month filming some awful WWE movie. When he returns it'll be treated as if he was away for ages, he'll be a face with absolutely no reason given nor any comment about him previously being a bad guy.
    6. Tyson Kidd will be a midcard champion. He'll be part of a marital feud where he suspects Natalya is cheating on him.
    7. Kurt Angle returns at the Rumble eliminating Rusev. They fight at Mania for the US title and Kurt wins. Rusev will beat him soon after.
    8. Sting beats Triple H at the Royal Rumble and goes on to fight Undertaker at Mania in a casket/buried alive match. It somehow ends with both men in the casket/ground and neither are seen in WWE again.
    9. CM Punk won't return. AJ will still be on the WWE's payroll and the only way she won't be wrestling is if she's pregnant or injured. But she'll still be employed.
    10. A Network Championship is created. Zack Ryder never wins it.
    11. Sami Zayn will be in the Rumble along with Adrian Neville. Tyler Breeze will be called up and initially feud with Fandango until they realise they should embrace their similarities and become a tag team.
    Finn Balor, The Ascension, Charlotte & Bayley all get called up. Sasha will be NXT Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss will move into Bayley's position. Itami will be NXT Champion.
    12. AJ Styles returns to TNA. Some people still insist it was a work all along.
    13. And finally Brad Maddox will win the Money In The Bank and cash in on every title. Or get future endeavoured and I'll need a new username. Whatever.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,426 ✭✭✭montyrebel

    CM Punk to return to the ring for ROH or GWF (if they have one of their own shows and not just showing someone elses) more likely as a manager than a wrestler though.

    Finn Balor to have a championship match on the Wrestlemania PPV, and as part of the main roster not a NXT match or a dark match.

    Another Irish wrestler, am thinking female, to be signed to developmental by WWE.

    The commentators to become 2 instead of 3.

    William Regal to return to the main shows and not NXT in some capacity.

    Cena to walk away from wrestling in 2015 after breaking Flairs record.
    Sting heel turn.
    Undertaker to return.
    And The Miz to win the world title.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,756 ✭✭✭demanufactured

    Hogan will have one last wwe title run after he gets a creative control clause into his contract...
    Will lose it to Triple H soon after... And will fade into the abyss again for another 10 years.. Making the odd WM appearance.

    Undertaker retires officially.

    Shane mcmahon returns..
    Shane vs HHH at WM.

  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_

    Realistic 2015 Predictions

    1. John Cena breaks & over takes Ric Flair's record of 16 World Championships
    (Typing that made me a bit sick)

    2. The Undertaker will officially ride off into the sunset
    3. Seth Rollins cashes in and wins the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Roman Reigns the night after Wrestlemania 31
    4. Shane McMahon to make a cameo appearance at some point in 2015
    5. Vince McMahon finally calls it a day.
    6. Zack Ryder finally gets Future Endeavored

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar

    Ah sure i'll give this a shot:

    1. Finn Balor to form a tag team with Sheamus and (knowing wwe for some stupid names down the years) call themselves the The Drunken Irish, or the shenanigans.

    2. Kurt Angle to return as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble, win it and face Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

    3. Brock Lesnar the night after mania threatens to leave wwe with the title as theres no competition left for him to face and nobody who can take the belt from him, Glass Shatters and out walks the Texas Rattlesnake, match set, WM32 Texas.

    4. The Rock and Batista to face each other at some stage, Vince cant let this match not happen.

    5. Cena to beat Flairs title record, wwe get Flair, Sammartino, maybe Hogan to endorse him as the greatest champion ever, then if scenario no.3 doesnt happen, Glass Shatters, Stunner, Cena flat out, Austin and the boys share a beer, doesnt get better then that, except a stunner then on the 3 boys :)

    It's very difficult to predict five things for some people, myself included.
    1. Seth Rollins cashes in at WrestleMania
    2. Finn Balor wins NXT Championship
    3. Cody Rhodes remains as Stardust
    4. Rusev gets jobbed out big time.
    5. Sheamus wins the Intercontinental Championship.
