HHH is still in fantastic shape

Agreed. And he can still wrestle a great match.

Yeah he put on really good matches with ambrose and ziggler last year. It's a shame people mainly focus on the awful mania match lol

Well there's a huge difference between working someone like Ambrose and Ziggler, vs. working someone like Reigns or Old-Sting.

That's not fair to either Wyatt or Owens (especially Owens). Both are great wrestlers who can bring out the best in their opponents. To write them off because they're both a bit overweight just isn't right.

Perhaps. I probably should have worded it better.

HHH is still in fantastic shape

Looking great, which is easy for him since we know he is a workout freak and he doesn't have to deal with the rigors of the road anymore, but being in ring shape is another.

Yep. Two completely different things. HHH probably also doesn't have to worry about the wellness policy....
Often a wrestler will look good and be in otherwise great physical shape, but once they get in the ring, they get blown up very quickly and just can't handle a 20-30 minute match. I noticed it recently watching the Rock's two Wrestlemania matches with Cena. He looked more fit than he ever did as an active wrestler, but he could not keep up with the pace at all, and needed a headlock for a breather every couple of minutes. He looked totally wiped early on. I've noticed it with many recent HHH matches too. Apparently he's been wrestling at house shows to prepare for it, so hopefully it will be enough to help.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Trying to figure out if it makes sense for a big Finn Balor return at Wrestlemania. Lesnar beats Goldberg, Heyman cuts a promo about how nobody can beat his beast, and then the lights go out and the demon shows up owed a match for the title he never lost. Only thing I don't necessarily like about it would be that you'd either have to have Finn lose which wouldn't make any sense (his demon bit should start out with a decent PPV win streak) or have Lesnar finally beat Goldberg only to immediately put over someone else.

I am leaning towards saying that the Lesnar/Goldberg match goes on last, I think that's the clear choice.  And I also think its a solid bet that Lesnar wins; but I can't see Lesnar ending the show with him celebrating.  So there is very likely a curve ball at the end of the night.  Who shows up is anybodies guess.  I don't think Finn would be a big enough of a surprise but its possible for sure.

It's looking like Taker/Reigns is going on last. Apparently Lesnar/Goldberg isn't going to be a long enough match to close out the show.

Either way, the ending of Wrestlemania will probably be extremely underwhelming.

Wow. What an amazing match. The Authors of Pain, The Revival, and #DIY may be an early contender for Match of the Year.

Bobby Roode is one of my current favorites no question.  He has all the tools and deserves a main roster spot.

The Hall of Fame show was good, but WWE needs to condense things a bit as that was a pretty long show.  But of course Wrestlemania will be at least 6 hours long, probably 6.5

My Booty Wrestlemania predicts;

Cruiserweight Championship Match - Neville retains

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal – Braun Stroman

Raw Tag Team Championship Match – Enzo & Cass win

Smackdown Women’s Championship Match – Naomi wins.

Intercontinental Title Match – Ambrose retains

AJ vs. Shane – AJ wins… Shane does something crazy.

Cena & Bella vs. Miz & Maryse – Cena and Bella win, Cena
proposes.

Raw Women’s Championship Match – Sasha wins.

United States Championship Match -Owens wins….which I think that someone winning the US Title a month after holding a Top Title for months is ridiculous… but oh well.

Unsanctioned Match – Seth “wins”.

WWE Championship Match – Wyatt retains.

The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns – The Undertaker wins.

Universal Championship match – Brock Lesnar wins. Match is much longer and much better than the previous ones. (Hopefully Finn Balor or someone leaves with the title somehow)

I agree with Destiny about all the matches he predicted except that I say Baron wins the IC belt and Charlotte wins the Raw Women's title

I agree with most of those (or don't feel confident enough in my predictions to disagree), except I really think Reigns might have this one.

This is the best chance to officially turn Reigns heel. If he defeats Taker the crowd will go nuts especially if he uses some cheating tactic to win. During the Hall of Fame show Reigns gave a very cocky heelish look to the camera so that might be a sign. He's definitely been heelish the last few weeks but it's time to turn it up a notch. There is big money to be made with a heel Reigns; the babyface experiment is done

Cena and Nikki don't need this win. They need to put Miz over. John has been overly arrogant and confident about winning, and that's a great reason why Miz should get the upset win.

I get the impression that Cena feels this match is beneath him to begin with.  Taking the loss would be another step down for him it would seem.

I hope Taker doesn't lose. Even though this may be his last match, he should go out with a win, plus most of the fans hate Reigns, like X-Pac heat, but Vince doesn't seem to care. And expect Lesnar to win. No way is he having 3 straight losses to Goldberg

I haven't watched much Smackdown lately to see the build for that match, but I'd be surprised if that was the case for Cena, just from what I've heard about his professionalism in the past. Fantasy booking for me would have Miz/Maryse winning, let Cena do his rumored Wrestlemania proposal to Nikki afterwards, and then Miz cuts a promo on Tuesday about having beaten Cena and not having any competition and Daniel Bryan brings out a debuting Shinsuke Nakamura.

There will be a couple matches during the pre show, including Neville vs Aries for the Cruiserweight title, which should be dope

Surprised that AJ is in the opening spot, but that's actually a great spot if you're not one of the main events. This match is an abomination though.

AJ did the best he could with what he was working with (ie nothing), but the booking of that match was awful. Shane was sloppy as shit too. Shane should not have been competitive, he should not have beaten AJ in a fist fight, he should not have lost by taking himself out with the table and shooting star press. He should have gotten his ass handed to him by the best wrestler in the world. At least the outcome was correct.

Shane has always been sloppy and has always been put up against wrestlers far above his skill level.  His match with angle comes to mind.

Speaking of that match with Angle.  I saw a before and after picture in 2001 before they were going to do the street fight and then one in 2017 of them hanging together.  Man, they aged horribly in 2017 which was not surprising given the bumps that Shane did in the few matches he did and Kurt having a period with his drug/medication/neck issues.

Neither of them are young either.

Owens / Jericho was good. 2nd match is not a great spot, but they still got a good amount of time. I guess they have to make up the time of the main events.

And now the good women's match? They're totally Wrestlemania 8'ing this card order. Loading up the best matches at the front end so they don't overshadow the weaker main events.
