Every little chairshot to the back of the head, every sledgehammer hidden beneath the ring, every extra-marital dalliance, every legend beaten to a bloody pulp ... everything that's happened in WWE's past year has been leading up to one magical night -- tomorrow's Wrestlemania.
Wrestling's self-proclaimed Super Bowl rarely disappoints. It's a circus of the stars, with jaw-dropping leaps and tumbles, plenty of choreographed violence, a surprise or two and loads of drama. A night to remember, for sure.
You can bet WWE's stars of stars will step up to the plate once again at tomorrow night's Wrestlemania in Houston. And while the show is anything but predictable, here's how I see things shaking down:
HHH vs. Randy Orton
This will be a war, with lots of interference and chicanery. A Triple H loss and Orton title win with some sort of bogus finish would fuel this feud for awhile. Orton wins via Triple H disqualification.
Edge vs. John Cena vs. Big Show
Cena wins the title while Edge and Big Show embark on their own feud, with Vicki in the middle
JBL vs. Rey Mysterio
JBL is promising something special, but it's hard to believe that Rey will lose.
Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy
It's about bloody time ... with the emphasis on blood. Brother vs. brother? We'll go with Jeff.
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker
Please tell me this won't be the end of Undertaker's Wrestlemania legacy. 'Taker has to win. Please explain to me why nobody ever knows Michaels' superkick is coming. Advice to Undertaker, if you hear some stomping going on, don't walk into a boot!
25-Diva Battle Royal
Please, put Santino in the match. And make him Miss Wrestlemania! It will be great to see former WWE Divas who have been added to the match.
Chris Jericho vs. WWE Legends
Jericho's been flapping his gums. While he may bloody a few of the legends, I have a feeling Mickey Rourke, Ric Flair and the rest of the old boys will have their revenge.
Money in Bank Ladder Match
Christian, Christian ... please let the winner be Christian. MVP or Kofi Kingston are the only other logical choices.
Morrison, Miz vs. The Colons
Carlito has been screwed at just about every other Wrestlemania he's appeared at. So maybe it's finally his time. The Colons win.
