Predicting winners for WrestleMania (Sunday) Night Two

With three massive title matches, WrestleMania Sunday is just as stacked as WrestleMania Saturday. With the overlooking questioning of whether Cody Rhodes will finish the story?

United States Championship Triple Threat: Logan Paul (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Kevin Owens

This feud has entered in a third person because Kevin Owens and Logan Paul are already continuing their beef from the Royal Rumble, where Owens was screwed out of the United States Championship after being spotted with bracks knucks on his hands which Paul likes to use. Still, Owens used them and thus was screwed.

All three men were in the Elimination Chamber match in Perth, Australia. Randy Orton eliminated Owens with an RKO and did the same to Paul. But as Orton looked to hit another RKO, Paul introduced his brass knucks and hit them to Orton, costing him the win.

In the weeks following, Paul formed an alliance with Grayson Waller, Austin Theory, and Pretty Deadly (Kit Wilson and Elton Prince), any top egotistical person Paul has an automatic partnership with. I forgot that Orton ruined Paul’s big announcement of PRIME being the official ring mat sponsor for every WWE Premium Live Event special when the Viper RKO’ed KSI.

Owens and Orton showed a little tension when they lost to Pretty Deadly last week on SmackDown, but things seemed to be alright with them—well, for now, anyway. The two people Paul has beef with he has to defend against.

With the odds against him, Paul will walk out of WrestleMania as the United States Champion. WWE or Paul would want to take advantage of the opportunity of Paul carrying the belt into SummerSlam, which is in Cleveland, Paul’s hometown.

The two superstars have deeply hated each other, dating back to late December, when AJ Styles returned from his time off and attacked LA Knight after fending off The Bloodline.

After that moment, the two have just had it out for each other, with Styles flying halfway across the world to continuously attack LA Knight with a Chair at the Elimination Chamber. Styles then refused to show up at SmackDown, leading to LA Knight at AJ Styles’ house and brawling with him in front of his house in his front yard.

Then there is Styles being tricked into thinking that LA Knight wasn’t disguised as a security guard, leading to another brawl between the two; yep, a lot of hate between both guys.

LA Knight is not in a title match despite how badly fans wanted him to be part of at least the United States Championship match. After being left off Mania last year and with the fans still loving the guy, LA Knight is headed for his first win at his first WrestleMania.

This must be an all-out brawl in Philadelphia, giving fans some pleasant memories of a specific promotion based in Philadelphia called ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling).

Bobby Lashley has been embroiled in a feud with Karrion Kross for months, which saw AOP (Akam and Rezar) return alongside Paul Ellering to form the final testament. The plan is to get all six men to Mania, as Lashley has the street profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) along with him, whereas Karrion Kross has the AOP.

Lashley, Ford and Dawkins needed rivals for their three-person group, with others being tied up in rivalries or still being prepared. The rivalry has been filled with constant brawls and ambushes, so it is a Philadelphia Street Fight at WrestleMania.

Lashley and The Street Profits need to move on from the final testament and move higher towards the card again because this feud is not going anywhere; it’s just an aim to get all six men onto the card. Plus, Lashley deserves a main event-level feud.

WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky (c) vs. Bayley

This is one of the best well-told stories on the Mania Card, alongside The Bloodline, Seth Rollins, and Cody Rhodes.

In January, Bayley won the Royal Rumble match by entering Number One and going the distance, winning the whole match. She had not decided immediately, but it would be emotional when she did.

On the February 2nd edition of Smackdown, Bayley had overheard WWE Women’s Champion Iyo Sky talk about Bayley behind her back alongside Kairi Sane and Auska. These two wrestlers have a strong relationship with Iyo and not with Bayley.

Bayley shocked everyone when she called out Iyo for what she had been doing, coming to an understanding. It led to her being ex-communicated from the group she initially started and making it easier to decide.

The following weeks were heartbreaking for Bayley as Dakota Kai reappeared on television. At the time, this made Bayley believe that Kai was on her side, thinking that she was also receiving attacks from Damage CTRL.

Only to be fooled by Kai during a tag team match when Bayley reaches for the tag, and Kai steps off the apron, forcing her into an ambush; it was all a facade. Bayley has since ramped up the aggression after being on the receiving end of attacks from Iyo Sky. Bayley got some payback for an attack during Iyo’s promotional photo shoot.

Bayley will come short this time, as she must play the long game to get payback. Iyo Sky will win their first encounter, but it might be in a controversial fashion, making fans wanting to see Bayley win at a later date mean that much more.

World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Drew McIntyre

Seth Rollins could be eating two significant losses on WrestleMania weekend, as he will unlikely walk out with the World Heavyweight Championship. Drew McIntyre is currently doing the best work of his career in WWE.

This heel run by McIntyre has seen him improve his social media presence, posting memes related to CM Punk or Rollins. Not to mention that McIntyre was the one who injured Punk and has a ready-made feud for when the Second City Saint makes his return from injury. McIntyre has used Punk’s name to level up his character but again used his motivations that he had had a babyface, now using them for his selfish reasons.

Is there a chance that McIntyre will not walk out as World Heavyweight Champion? There is a good chance that he doesn’t because, for that match in particular, CM Punk will be doing commentary that night and given his dislike for both men, he could play a part in the finish.

Damien Priest has the Money In The Bank contract, and he hinted at potentially cashing it in soon, meaning he could take his chance in this World Title match, especially if he and Balor lose the tag titles. Rollins and McIntyre have been distracted with different purposes, which has been the story of this match, and it could contradict them both.

This week, WWE announced their PLE in June Clash at The Castle, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, at the OVO Hydro. If McIntyre does not get his moment at Mania, he could have his moment in front of his home nation in Glasgow on June 15th.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Cody Rhodes

Whatever happens on Night One of WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes will fight for his life against Roman Reigns. This is especially true if it is Bloodline Rules, as that means any member of the Bloodline can interfere without any consequences.

Bloodline Rules should be how the match goes on Sunday Night because it can make Rhodes’ victory even sweeter. And if you have not seen it already, go check out Rock’s beatdown on Rhodes on March 25th; you’ll see a camera shot of Rock beating Cody up in front of a production truck with the faces of John Cena and Stone Cold on it.

With Bloodline Rules, Rhodes has to call in the calvary, bringing in people who can help him fend off the Bloodline and end this reign of terror that Reigns has been on for four years.

WrestleMania 40 has one of the best cards across both nights, and it sure is living up to being the biggest WrestleMania of all time. Rock is making an in-ring comeback after 12 years away; three Women’s Matches are bound to be great, and there are such great stories behind it, as well as a standout debut. Storytelling and WorkRate are the common themes, adding to speculation that a certain Texas rattlesnake could be making his grand return. WrestleMania XL is going to be unique.
