    Roman Reigns May Lose His Championship

    Undisputed Universal Champion, Roman Reigns will square up against the winner of the Royal Rumble, Cody Rhodes for the second time in a row. Roman has been Universal Champion since August 30, 2020. Does Cody have what it takes to end the champion’s prolonged reign? Can he complete his story and achieve what his father never did? Tune in to WWE Network on Monday at 12am to watch the action live.

    Is The Bloodline Unstoppable?

    Roman Reigns’ dominance as champion has been possible by The Bloodline, a tribe comprising Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa and most recently, The Rock. But their unchallenged reign as the dominant gang may come to an end if the duo of Cody and Seth Rollins emerge victorious in their tag team fight against Roman and Rocky. Can The Bloodline be defeated? Find out on Saturday night at 11pm on WWE Network

    Will CM Punk Disrupt Seth Rollins vs Drew McIntire’s fight?

    CM Punk’s dream to compete at Wrestlemania XL was cut short after he sustained a torn tricep from Drew McIntire’s DDT. The former champion is expected to be a ringside commentator when World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins defends his championship belt against McIntire. Punk’s animosity against McIntire is not hidden and fans are eagerly anticipating a possible disruption from him. If Punk interferes, will it favour Seth who is equally caught up in a beef with The Bloodline? Find out  on Monday at 12am on WWE Network.

    Brothers At War

    Erstwhile inseparable twins, Jimmy and Jey Uso will finally take their long drawn out beef to the ring as both men look to get one over the other after prolonged attacks on each other. After Jey unceremoniously left The Bloodline, he has been subjected to recurrent attacks from The Bloodline. Can he make a big statement against his brother and other members of the notorious gang? Will he get help from Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins? All the answers will unfold on Monday at 12am on WWE Network.

    Will Logan Paul Keep Running?

    United States Champion, Logan Paul has constantly shied away from physical confrontations against his Triple-Threat opponents, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens. With his championship belt on the line, will he manage to emerge victorious against his vicious opponents? Watch the action unfold live on Monday at 12am on WWE Network.

    Wrestlemania XL Predictions:

    Iyo Sky (C) Vs. Bayley - WWE Women’s Championship Match

    At the height of their dominance, Damage CTRL couldn’t be matched. Lead by the WWE’s first-ever women’s Grand Slam Champion Bayley, Iyo Sky holding the WWE Women’s Championship since August of last year and the Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane) holding the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, the stable was stronger than ever. Things for the group began to fall apart after Bayley won the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble match, and the alliance began to crack. Bayley has the odds against her in this match, but I feel that after a very hard-fought bout, she emerges victorious and becomes the new WWE Women’s Champion. Winner – Bayley

    Rhea Ripley (C) Vs. Becky Lynch – Women’s World Championship

    Rhea Ripley and The Judgement Day have been running roughshod over the WWE for well over a year now. And though they’ve had their ups and downs throughout, they remain a very commanding force in both the men’s and women’s divisions with a Ripley leading the charge. I think “Mami” has an extremely formidable opponent in front of her in “The Man” Becky Lynch, but does Becky have what it takes to take down the reigning champ? I don’t think so. It will be a barnburner of a match with Rhea walking away… barely… as the Women’s World Champion. Winner – Rhea Ripley

    Gunther (C) Vs. Sami Zayn – WWE Intercontinental Championship

    Gunter’s record-breaking reign as Intercontinental Champion is closing in on close to 700 days! With Imperium by his side, Gunter has become the longest reigning IC Champ in the history of the WWE. And while many, including myself, thought that Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable was going to be Gunther’s opponent at Wrestlemania XL, Sami Zayn earned that spot away from Gable, upsetting much of the WWE Universe. I don’t think Zayn gets the job done this time around, and Gunther’s reign as Champ continues until at least Summer Slam where Chad Gable gets his due. Maybe even in a Triple Threat style match against Gunther and Zayn. Until then though… and STILL, WWE Intercontinental Champion – Gunther. Winner – Gunther

    Logan Paul (C) Vs. Randy Orton Vs. Kevin Owens – Triple Threat Match For The WWE United States Championship

    If there is anyone that deserves a whoopin’ at the hands of both “The Viper” Randy Orton and Kevin Owens, it’s Logan Paul. Over the past year and then some, Paul has showcased his talent as a professional wrestler and sports entertainer, which lead him to his current reign as US Champ. However, anytime there is more than two opponents in a match, the chances of retaining the Championship lessen by quite a bit. I see Orton & Owens teaming up on Paul quite a bit throughout the match, but they will eventually turn their focus on each other. And after a good back and forth between the two, Paul will underhandedly take advantage of the situation and barely squeak away with the win and the US Title. Though, I hope Logan gets the beatdown he deserves in the match! Winner – Logan Paul

    LA Knight Vs. AJ Styles

    It is undeniable that LA Knight (YEAH!) has been on a tear over the past year. Since his call-up from NXT, Knight has set the WWE Universe on fire, which is not necessarily a positive thing. And though the fans LOVE Knight, his popularity has grown to a point where WWE officials behind the scenes have had to “cool him off” a bit. Knight’s opponent at Wrestlemania XL is one of the best professional wrestlers and sports entertainers in the world in the “Phenomenal One” AJ Styles. Styles has had it out for Knight for some time now and the plan is to settle the score once and for all at the Showcase of the Immortals. As a fan, I love both AJ & LA, but in the end, after which should be a great match, I hope Knight walks away with the W. Winner – LA Knight (YEAH!).

    Jey Uso Vs. Jimmy Uso

    It’s the battle of brothers! YEET vs. NO YEET! This fight between the Uso Brothers has been in the making for quite some time now. Uso’s cousin Roman Reign’s and the Bloodline have been the faction in WWE for over three years now, and only until recently seemed impenetrable. Once Jey defected from the group, things began to change. The strength in numbers in the Bloodline benefits brother Jimmy however, and I think this will be the deciding factor in the match, with a little help from younger brother Solo Sikoa.

    Seth “Freakin” Rollins (C) Vs. Drew McIntyre – World Heavyweight Championship

    Seth Rollins won the newly minted World Heavyweight Title back in May of 2023, and has held the championship ever since. The title’s creation came as a result of former S.H.I.E.L.D. stablemate Roman Reigns’ dominance as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champ. Rollins has fought hard, and through many injuries, to keep this title around his waist, but challenger Drew McIntyre has a different plan for the title moving forward. If things go as I think they will, this match could be one of the most talked about from the entire ‘Mania weekend. Will Rollins’ injuries come into play? Will there be some sort of “outside interference” that causes “The Visionary” to come up short? Does McIntyre finally get his Wrestlemania moment in front of the WWE Universe? I think Rollins wins, but barely, and following his hard-fought victory, The Judgement Day’s Damien Priest cashes in his Señor Money in the Bank briefcase to become the NEW World Heavyweight Champion! Similar to how Rollins cashed in on Reigns at Wrestlemania years ago. Winner – Seth “Freakin” Rollins – with Damien Priest cashing in the Money in the Bank contract and defeating Rollins to become the NEW World Heavyweight Champion.

    The Bloodline (The Rock & Roman Reigns) Vs. Cody Rhodes & Seth “Freakin” Rollins – Tag Team Match

    There is a lot riding on this Wrestlemania Night #1 match! If Rhodes & Rollins win, all members of The Bloodline will be prohibited from being present ringside during the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match on Night #2. If The Rock & Roman win, the championship match between Reigns & Rhodes on Night #2 will be a Bloodline Rules match. I believe WWE officials will make it as difficult as possible for Cody to dethrone the Tribal Chief on “The Grandest Stage of Them All” in Philadelphia. “The People’s Champ” & “The Head of the Table” will be victorious in this match, leading to a Bloodline Rules match between Rhodes and Reigns on Night #2. Winners – The Bloodline (The Rock & Roman Reigns)

    Roman Reigns (C) Vs. Cody Rhodes – Undisputed WWE Universal Championship

    With the Bloodline Rules in place, Cody Rhodes will be in the toughest fight of his career against Reigns. Rhodes will be the underdog throughout the match getting beatdown from pillar to post. And subsequently being outnumbered by The Bloodline, Cody’s chances of walking away as Champ will seemingly be slim to none. However, in true, dramatic WWE fashion, Cody Rhodes will pull himself up by his bootstraps and complete his story by beating the longest reigning champion in WWE in over 35 years, Roman Reigns to become the NEW Undisputed WWE Universal Champion in Philadelphia, with the entire wrestling world watching. Winner – Cody Rhodes
