    Big Dawg Roman Reigns to be the first to beat the Fiend and win the Universal championship at Mania.

    The audience will still be indifferent to him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,120 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Was there a 2019 thread? I wanna see if anyone nailed a prediction.


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 24,773 Mod ✭✭✭✭Loughc


    Johnny Morrison to win the Intercontinental or the US Title depending on what brand he ends up on. That'll be the height of his comeback stint.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,635 ✭✭✭RollieFingers


    Naito to finally fulfill his destiny and leave the Tokyo Dome as double champion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88

    Sheamus goes after the IC belt, becomes consumed by it.. But its actually not a very good story line in the end and we just end up wanting The Bar back more than ever.

    A Bray Wyatt vs Fiend rivalry

    As hilariously bad as everything Bray Wyatt does is I would die from laughter if this ever actually happened.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,413 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    No one called up from NXT gets over with main event Universe fans.

    We had taker vs taker and kane vs kane before so its possible

    Finding someone of a similar build to Bray Wyatt could be hard. They could draw on tattoos and all that

    They could also have the fiend maybe take over another wrestlers

    I can see Dream doing so if he's called up. Even if the character doesn't transfer he's got charisma.


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


    Mine for 2019 were...



    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

    Hasn't the turn already already happened?
    And forgot about Lars.


    - If they stick around, the whole Lana/Rusev thing will be forgotten after they go away for a bit.
    - Shayna to get called up and get treated a bit better than Asuka, until they want to give Charlotte the title again.
    - I know a few are already, but most people to get sick of Becky and start to turn on her.
    - Nikki to become less crazy and challenge more seriously for the title. May even win
    - I know PTH said Alexa, but I expect someone else to retire, as well as Alexa
    - Luke Harper to AEW
    - Surprising release and/or jump to AEW

    I know I could go through them myself, but I think part of the fun of these threads is seeing how everyone did.
    So ye should go to the 2019 thread and post the results of your predictions.

    Y2J returns to WWE

    Braun finally wins a single's title

    CM Punk returns in ring

    Given he's contracted to AEW until sometime in the 20's, we can safely scratch that one off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,873 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Since I thought of it yesterday, I figured there won't be too many changes between now and the end of year.
    So how'd ye do?
    Obviously some predictions were messed up by COVID, which I didn't see anyone predict.

    - Shayna to get called up and get treated a bit better than Asuka, until they want to give Charlotte the title again. Shayna called up at least
    - I know a few are already, but most people to get sick of Becky and start to turn on her. Nope.
    - Nikki to become less crazy and challenge more seriously for the title. May even win Yep. Apart from the win part
    - I know PTH said Alexa, but I expect someone else to retire, as well as Alexa Nope. Can't remember a retirement
    - Luke Harper to AEW Yep.
    - Surprising release and/or jump to AEW Think Rusev counts

    A few of my predictions happened and i would call Adam Pearce a GM :p. With the exception of Lana and Dana Brooke i was right about the releases. No way in hell anyone would of predicted we be watching WWE with a virtual audience.

    So difficult to predict 2021 but i might give it a go

    No one predicted Thunderdome :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    Putting successful predictions in bold.

    John Morrison doesn't go anywhere after his re-debut other than a bland IC reign - no ic reign, and the Miz team has been fun.

    Luke Harper shows up in AEW - boom

    There will only be one more person jumping ship to AEW after a WWE release - Where do I start with this one? :P Let's just say Sting

    AEW runs major show in London - So close, was apparently planned according to JR's podcast.

    CM Punk makes appearance at Wrestlemania, but will not have a match in 2020 - drat, was sure this would have happened.

    Samoa Joe becomes part-time - I mean, it's kind of true at this stage.

    The Fiend will hold the belt until Wrestlemania in which he drops it to Reigns, in the worse reviewed match on the night - Still think this would have happened had it not been for COVID, but glad it didn't

    Naito wins on both nights of Wrestlekingdom - Yes boy!!!!

    Charlotte will leave WWE - There is still time though!

    Morbid one, but Ric Flair will pass away
    Glad to get this one wrong
