Wrestlemania 32 Predictions and Picks

Triple H Roman Reigns

The WWE rolls into Arlington, Texas for Wrestlemania 32 at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. The biggest event of the wrestling year has come together nicely despite the company dealing with several major injuries to their top talent.

The card looks like it could be filled with some exciting matches, even though this year’s go-home show on RAW was pretty subpar.

However, betting on wrestling comes with more perils than other sports. You need to worry about what is best for storylines moving forward, and also that Wrestlemania typically sets up the rest to the wrestling year for the WWE.

So before you get in too deep, here are picks and predictions for all the best matches on the card and whether or not there is value to be had.

Roman Reign vs Triple H

Let’s start with the most predictable match on the card. The WWE has been building Roman Reigns for the better part of three years now with the idea that he would be the top face in the company and, despite the constant boos, the company is not likely to give up on that plan now.

Triple H is nothing more than a transitional champion during a period where injuries have ravaged the WWE’s roster. He still does a surprisingly good job telling a story in the ring despite his age, but he is not able to defend the title nearly enough to hold it anymore.

Personally, I expect this to ultimately play into a storyline in which Triple H loses control to Shane McMahon and runs an invasion angle with NXT. This would give the company a summer storyline to carry them through Summerslam.

The champion has not retained the WWE World Heavyweight title since it was created, fusing the WWE and World Heavyweight title, in 2013. Don’t expect this trend to change in Arlington Sunday. I don’t like it and most fans don’t like it either, but Reigns will be holding the belt with confetti raining over him at Wrestlemania 32.

Pick and Prediction: Roman Reigns via pinfall

Is It Worth Betting? There is no value in this line unless you think Triple H pulls off a miracle and beats Reigns.

Shane McMahon vs The Undertaker

Any concerns that Shane McMahon would not be willing to sacrifice his body the way he did back in the day were put to rest on RAW after the eldest McMahon son elbow dropped Undertaker through the announce table. McMahon has a lot riding on the line with a win giving him power over RAW.

That being said, Undertaker losing to Shane is not an option. Taker’s streak ending against Brock Lesnar was shocking enough, but a loss to McMahon would tarnish him and Lesnar’s legacies in one fell swoop.

Expect this match to be sluggish for the most part, but featuring the huge spots that have dictated Shane’s forays into the ring. Undertaker should ultimately dispatch McMahon, but Shane will show resilience and perseverance that will appeal to his father, leading to him gaining control over RAW anyways.

Pick and Prediction: Undertaker via pinfall

Is It Worth Betting? Both McMahon and Taker are slightly in the minus-money in this one. A solid profit for a wrestling match or part of a parlay.

Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar

This bout looks to be one of the most closely debated heading into Wrestlemania. The WWE has been successfully building Dean Ambrose to become this generation’s adored, hardcore legend, but he will be facing the most physically imposing man to ever set foot in the ring in Brock Lesnar.

However, Lesnar is a part-time guy. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ is more about cashing his big cheques and taking eight months of the year off from the grind of wrestling. Lesnar seemingly has little issue helping another wrestler go over, with a smaller emphasis on his personal victories within the ring than earlier in his career.

Ambrose has been getting extra rub from hardcore legends leading into the street fight. ‘The Lunatic Fringe’ has played the tough-as-nails, impossible to keep down role perfectly. Ambrose will end up getting beat pillar to post in this match, but will use his resilience and weapons proficiency to cement his top tier status within the WWE.

Pick and Prediction: Dean Ambrose via pinfall.

Is It Worth Betting? As of this writing Ambrose is a small plus-money underdog. I can’t imagine this line closing this way, so getting DA early may be your best bet.

Rest Of The Card

Kevin Owens enters a seven-man ladder match as the Intercontinental Champion and it is hard to see who offers a legitimate threat. Sami Zayn may be the best option given his history with Owens and the apparent need for the belt to get over on the main roster. Don’t fall for the red herring, Zack Ryder, as his feel good story is nothing more than commentator fodder.

Pick and Prediction: Sami Zayn wins the IC Title 

Is It Worth Betting? Tons of value outside of Owens, if you believe anyone can ultimately take the strap from KO.

Sasha Banks rightfully enters her three-way match against Charlotte and Becky Lynch as the favorite. Fans love Banks and she has all the wrestling ability and swagger the women’s division needs for a true rebirth.

Pick and Prediction: Sasha Banks via submission (on Charlotte)

Is It Worth Betting? There is no value on Banks, but if you feel Ric Flair could play a role there is a spot for Charlotte.

The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale is pretty much a jobber fest. There is not a lot of exciting things to say, but most rumors have pointed towards Braun Stroman ultimately winning the event. The previous two winners of this were just mid-carders, so expect someone who is solid, yet in a rut to win.

Pick and Prediction: Bray Wyatt Wins

Is It Worth Betting? Every competitor is plus-money, so this is definitely worth a look if you are inclined. However, predicting a winner is not easy in the 20-man field.
