    Johnny Gargano main roster debut

    The Elite WILL NOT turn up in WWE.

    Charlotte to another Women's Championship reign to her previous 7.

    Becky eliminated last from Women's Royal Rumble to the outrage of millions.

    Charlotte VS Ronda main events Mania.

    Braun Strowman will not have a Universal Title reign in 2019.

    Lesnar will defend and retain his title at Mania, before leaving with little to no payoff.

    EC3 to be called up along with Aleister Black. Both will be at best midcard mainstays after promising starts.

    Drew McIntyre wins a World Title at some point in 2019 in a minor bright moment.

    Undertaker wrestles at Mania. Again. And for an unknown reason wins. Again.

    WWE Title and Universal Title swap shows. For some reason they don't change the belt colours immediately though until it's pointed out by thousands on Twitter.

    HBK has a singles match at Mania. It will be good, but given his perfect retirement being ruined people will dislike it.

    Batista to return on a part time basis and wins a World Title.


    Fcuk me this is depressing stuff I'm writing :pac:

    I'm waiting for Gerry to make his predictions, just to see if they'll be as accurate as they were in the 2018 thread.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Jordan Devlin and WALTER will have a match for the WWE United Kingdom Championship.


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


    Lets see how this goes!

    Drew McIntyre will win the Rumble.

    Pete Dunne will wrestle for the Main NXT Title at a Takeover.

    Ricochet will join the main roster, as will TUE.

    Jericho will lose to Naito at WK and return to WWE, potentially for Summerslam.

    Undertaker will NOT retire.:(

    Jim Neidhart will be the posthumous HOF Inductee.

    Braun will not win the title.

    Elias will hold gold in 2019


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,611 ✭✭✭✭ERG89


    Truth to get confused and try come out at no.30 in the Women's Rumble.
    Lynch to win that match via eliminating Nia Jax.
    Whoever wins the men's Rumble will be forgotten as fast as Nakamura's win was.
    Ratings to rise a bit in the new year but will slump to the same low during the same period next year.
    Model WWE employees will continue to defend a bad product by continuing to say its very hard writing 5 hours of TV a week even when WWE has been doing at least 4 hours for nearly 2 decades.
    Most WWE talents not being pushed now will continue to not be and still won't leave.
    ROH to lose more talent and the MSG show basically becomes a NJPW event.
    The Elite promotion will struggle to sign talent outside of their friends and fan perception of the group will go downhill.
    Omega stays with New Japan and doesn't leave exclusively.
    Most promotions will struggle due to a lack of unsigned talent available.

    A couple of weeks too early for 2019 but Nick Miller of NXT's The Mighty (formerly TM61) was released yesterday. I'd call that unexpected and it leaves Shane Thorne as a solo act.

    A small wrasslin company from the south will be bought up by a billionaire named Ted Turner.
    He will hire some young buck named Eric Bichsoff to oversee things there.

    They plan to take on WWE in some kind of "Monday Night War".
