Wrestlemania 26 Match predictions
It's already beginning to look more and more like we'll see Vince McMahon wrestling again as he'll take on Bret the Hitman Hart in a Wrestlemania 26 clash over their 12-year long feud. Vince may try to continually duck out on the match, but it's been announced that the Raw guest host prior to WM26 is Stone Cold Steve Austin. Perhaps Stone Cold will schedule the matchup, or announce himself as the special guest referee?
Here's several more big match predictions for the upcoming Wrestlemania 26 card. These will involve the usual big time stars, such as John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Randy Orton, as well as Undertaker, Chris Jericho and Edge from Smackdown!
Feel free to weigh in with your own match predictions in the comments section below.
John Cena vs. Batista - This feud re-emerged on Raw last week after the show went off the air. Cena played the role of hero to come to Bret Hart's aid in the ring following a heinous attack by Batista. After seemingly chasing off the Animal, Cena raised Hart's arm in the ring to honor the WWE Hall of Famer. However, a hellbent Batista rushed the ring a second time and tossed Cena shoulder first into the ring post. He then dismantled Cena around the outside of the ring, and ended up Powerbombing him on top of some steel steps in the ring. Cena had qualified for the Elimination Chamber earlier on Raw, but Batista eliminated himself by countout on Smackdown. Is he going to take out Batista at the Elimination Chamber PPV? It seems like a possibility because of the fact Batista isn't part of a match, yet. This match may also become the whole Raw versus Smackdown brand superiority match as well as have Vince McMahon and Bret Hart as cornermen, with Hart able to get his Sharpshooter locked on in the end.
Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker (or HHH?) - The way the story looks right now, Michaels is becoming obsessed with his quest to get a rematch against Taker at WM26. He tried to win the Royal Rumble but failed, which according to the Deadman was Michaels' best shot. It's foreseeable that since HBK didn't qualify for the Raw Elimination Chamber, he may take someone out to get into the Smackdown Elimination Chamber. R-Truth or John Morrison might be beat up prior to even getting near the Chamber at the PPV, or Michaels interferes to cost Taker the win. This will incite Taker to tell Michaels he wants to take his soul at Wrestlemania 26. Of course, WWE could always go the other way and cause this whole obsession to be the dividing point of Michaels and HHH, setting up a bigtime match between them at Mania.
Randy Orton vs. Ted Dibiase (w/Cody Rhodes) - After what transpired at Royal Rumble 2010, it seems like it's time for the Legacy meltdown to kick into gear. Since Dibiase and Orton are both part of the Elimination Chamber match, these two will probably end up battling at some point, and their feud will get sparked. I suspect that Rhodes will possibly accompany Dibiase to the ring for the Chamber, or WM26, and turn against him to aid Orton.
Edge vs Chris Jericho (World Heavyweight) - Consider this a triple main event for WM26, with Batista and Cena, and the WWE Title match also playing part. It's obvious that Edge wants Jericho badly following his injury and Jericho's insulting remarks while Edge was off. Jericho will win the Elimination Chamber due to Shawn Michaels' interference, or Batista's, or both. He'll claim the gold to continue his bragging, and Edge will have an easy decision as 2010 Royal Rumble winner.
Triple H vs. Sheamus (WWE Title) - Surprisingly, the WWE has stayed with Sheamus as its champion. A while back I predicted he'd lose the title back to Cena at Royal Rumble, but as we saw, he didn't even face Cena there. They've built up the idea that Sheamus has wins over Orton and Cena now, so that leaves HHH next. It's possible the title will be on HHH as we head into Mania, or he'll take the belt from him for yet another reign as of the big PPV.
The one guy who I'm left wondering about is Rey Mysterio, although there's been speculations that he needs surgery, as does Undertaker. It'd be hard to believe he'd want to stay away from Wrestlemania, so figuring out where he'll fit in at the event is tough right now. Maybe the Money in the Bank? So far I see Shelton Benjamin, Christian, CM Punk, MVP, Evan Bourne, John Morrison and Kane competing in that one. Mysterio has yet to compete in that match, but it seems as if it's for health reasons.
