Welcome… to Wrestlemania! Or at least, the Plebs Of Wrestling’s predictions for Wrestlemania! This is it guys, this is the biggest show of the year! I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. As I’ve said a lot over the last week or so, there hasn’t been much wrestling news in the last two months that hasn’t in some way related to Mania. This is the culmination, this is what WWE has been working towards for the whole of 2014 so far. This. Is. Wrestlemania.
There are 8 matches announced for the show including the kickoff match. There are also several notable things about this Mania – for one it’s literally the biggest ever, with 66 performers confirmed for matches on the show. Then add in appearances from the Hall of Famers, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and anyone else who shows up (CM Punk? Sting?). And those special appearances will be the first time we’ve seen some of the biggest names in the history of the wrestling industry on a WWE broadcast in years. And to top all of that off, this is the final event in the Plebs of Wrestling Prediction League! This is the end of the season if you like, and though I hold a fair lead over Matt, you never know what will happen. So, enough rambling about how great Wrestlemania 30 is/will be, let’s get on to the actual predictions!
M It’s Wrestlemania and how can one not be at least a bit excited!? Well it’s a close call for me I’m afraid. There’s a different feel to this year but unfortunately it’s not about the quality of the story lines and talent, but more about the spectacle surrounding the WWE Network promotion and just a downright expectancy that everyone will watch if they make it BIG! I’m a skeptic at heart as I’m sure you know, so I’ll hold my breath on this one till after I see it. The only thing I get excited about at Wrestlemania time is the Raw after it! Anyway, I’m a bit behind Andrew so I’m going all out tonight. Most of these predictions will be strange with added bits all over the shop. If I’m going down, I’m going down swinging!!

It’s the last stop before Wrestlemania, and indeed the last stop before wrestling is changed forever with the launch of the WWE Network! All that means this should be a big occasion, and a damn good show! This is Andrew here with the predictions for the Elimination Chamber 2014, just an hour to go to the show itself! Let’s get to it.

Are you ready? Are you ready for the Road to Wrestlemania? More importantly, are you ready for constant pointing at the Wrestlemania 30 sign that will be present in the arena every week? I know I am. There are a lot of questions over the direction the WWE will take over the next few months, and where they go could potentially define the next great era of the business. The unpredictability is fantastic, and nowhere is it more appropriate than the Royal Rumble match. You can never be sure who will turn up, who will turn on who, and sometimes even who will reign supreme. This really is the best time of year to be a wrestling fan, and it properly starts this weekend!
There are 5 matches currently confirmed for the show, with the slight possibility of a Divas match being added too. There’s also a slight change to the rules for this one, as for the Royal Rumble match itself we will not lose any points for any wrong extra guesses. There’s so much that could happen that I thought it fairer to give us a free reign here to pick up as many points as possible. So, without further ado, let’s do this! Continue reading Royal Rumble 2014 Predictions
Well it’s the last PPV of the year and I’m sure we’re all hoping that the WWE believe in saving the best for last. It’s been a slow year but we have to believe that they have used it to set up some great things going forward into 2014 and beyond. There’s a lot of excitement going in to this one off the back of a fantastic ending to raw. The trick now will be to keep that excitement going and actually follow through for once!!

It’s time for Survivor Series! Historically one of the “Big 4” PPVs but it really hasn’t felt all that special for a while now. Especially this year. The two “top” matches are just not exciting. There are a couple of others on the show though, and since we’re fast approaching the event itself let’s get straight to it! Continue reading Survivor Series 2013 Predictions
Hi guys it’s Matt here. It’s the third PPV in what?……6 weeks?! Some might say that’s a bit too much and I would agree. Especially when you look at the quality of the last 2, which have been mediocre at best!
I’ve been hearing that they are going to stop the whole HITC as a PPV after this and are just going to use the match when a feud deserves it. Again I couldn’t agree more with this, and if they would just do the same with the TLC PPV, I’d be a happy chappy!
Anyway on to business. This does look like it could be a decent show, with some half decent matches and a “promise ” of a conclusion to the wwe championship saga on the card, we can’t really do any worse than Battleground……………..right?
Let’s get started as usual with the pre show then:

Another predictions column? Are we sure? It doesn’t feel that long since the last one. That’s probably because it isn’t, but due to WWE’s scheduling geniuses here we are again! I’m going to attempt to keep this one short because I’m kinda getting bogged down in some uni work, so let’s get to it! Continue reading WWE Battleground Predictions
Hey all! Andrew here with the predictions for Night of Champions 2013, since Matt’s “too busy” to write it, having been at the Manchester United vs Crystal Palace game yesterday (C’mon United!). It’s been a couple of months since I’ve done this predictions malarkey, so hopefully I’ll remember the format and not go off on random tangents throughout.
There are currently 6 matches announced for the main show (a small number, so expect 2 or 3 impromptu “special attraction” matches to take place) as well as the pre-show match, which this time round features the return of the tag-team turmoil gimmick! Let’s get right into them shall we?

Hello again one and all!
It’s August and that can mean only one thing…………that’s right, the return of the Barclays Premier League! “COME ON UNITED”
Oh yeah, and it’s also the time of year where we get ready for the 2nd most explosive WWE PPV of the year!
This one is by far one of the most anticipated cards that myself and Andrew have been looking forward to and for good reason. Good match ups, really good build ups and probably the most exciting thing of all, the genuine feeling of ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen.’ Something we haven’t really had in a long time. So without further ado, here’s the way Andrew and myself think this will go down:
Dean Ambrose (C) vs Rob Van Dam
This could be an excellent rivalry. The Shield’s promo on Raw was about how they are ushering in a new era, and what better way for them to go about it than by taking out the veterans in the company at the minute. RVD is a cult legend from the 90s, a prime example of the “old guard”. And Ambrose and RVD (when he gives a damn) can put on some excellent matches. Unfortunately the rumour is that this will descend into chaos leading to the 6-man-tag match we saw on Smackdown. So, my prediction here is going to e something that you’ve never seen from me before…
Prediction: No contest
The rumours all say that this will turn out to be a 6 man tag match in order to get the rest of the shield involved but most likely to get mark Henry involved in the card. And let’s face it, he does deserve to be on it. The downside is that it’s likely to make this whole scenario lead to a farcical brawl that the big show will dominate on his return to the ring and leave the shield running for their lives. I’m not looking forward to this as I think that it going to take it away from an excellent match between Ambrose and RVD. But as I have to officially predict, I’m going for…..
Result: Ambrose retains title via dq after the shield interfere. RVD, Henry and big show win the resultant 6 man tag

Hello folks, it’s mid July which can only mean one thing……..that’s right Money In The Bank!
This time it’s me Matt that will be your author as Andrew is away on some musical escapades at T in the park. Lucky sod.
Anyway let’s get cracking as we’ve got a big card to get through.
We’ll start with the first match on the kick off. Continue reading MITB 2013 predictions
