Simulation predicts WrestleMania 26
By JOHN POWELL - SLAM! Wrestling
With WrestleMania just hours away, predictions are running wild just like Hulk-A-Mania did in the '80s.

Will The Hitman finally get his pound of flesh from Vince McMahon? As we do every year, to get the answers to those and other pressing WrestleMania questions we turn to our friends at THQ and their phenomenal Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 video game. Here are the interesting predictions it made (minus the Money in the Bank match) for tonight’s extravaganza from Arizona.

Bret Hart vs Vince McMahon: The Predictions
As wrestling fans, we love to make predictions. But those in the business itself do too. Though Undertaker versus Shawn Michaels and the two world title matches are probably more important to WWE in the long run, it's the Bret "The Hitman" Hart against Vince McMahon Street Fight that has people talking.

Security always a concern at WrestleMania weekend
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling
