WrestleMania 36 Predictions – Predicting the Outcome of Every Match

| April 1, 2020 4:15 am PDT
WrestleMania 36 Predictions

Following a great deal of uncertainty, WrestleMania 36 is set to take place across Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

WWE’s Show of Shows will only be available on pay-per-view this year, with the event taking place without a live audience.

Regardless of the unusual circumstances, there are still plenty of exciting matchups for us to look forward to. Can Rhea Ripley defeat Charlotte Flair? And will Edge enjoy a successful comeback?

Here are my WrestleMania 36 predictions for every match.

Brock Lesnar to Beat Drew McIntyre

Most people believe that Drew McIntyre is about to win the WWE Championship based on his trajectory in the past year or so. I agree that it makes a lot of sense, but let’s not forget that Brock Lesnar is now tied to the organization for good and there are no indications for more flirts with the UFC.

I believe the champion could retain his title and continue the feud between him and the Scottish wrestler. It could benefit the WWE and draw a lot of interest by the fans in the long run, so I wouldn’t rule Lesnar out.

If you add the fantastic odds that are available at most places, I think that backing the champion to retain his title at WrestleMania 36 is the smart choice.

Becky Lynch to Beat Shayna Baszler

The fight between those two has been coming and we will finally see them in the ring during WrestleMania 36. Becky Lynch’s WWE Raw Women’s Championship will be on the line, so this clash will be crucial for the storylines of both wrestlers.

Shayna Baszler certainly has a bright future and already was on the losing her own NXT title to Rhea Ripley. Many people believe it’s time for Lynch’s long reign to end and that certainly makes sense.

However, the Queen of Spades has been brutal in the past, biting Lynch and tormenting her on every occasion. Some fans certainly would enjoy sweet revenge and WWE might give it to them. The price for Lynch is too good to miss in this one, so the best bet is to back her against Baszler.

Rhea Ripley to Beat Charlotte Flair

Rhea Ripley is destined to become the next big superstar in women’s wrestling. Despite only being 23, the Australian demolished Shayna Baszler to win the NXT Championship a few months back and has now set her sights on taking down Charlotte Flair.

There’s no denying that The Queen is the greatest women’s wrestler of all time, but her reign will have to come to an end at some point. Flair has been at the summit for years, but it could be time for her to step aside and make way for the new generation.

A battle between Ripley and Flair was inevitable, but few could’ve predicted that it would happen as early as WrestleMania 36. However, Ripley has risen up the ladder at frightening speed, and the NXT champion is fully deserving of her opportunity.

This match is likely to go down as a landmark moment in WWE history. Rhea Ripley looks set to dethrone The Queen.

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to Beat John Cena

No one is exactly sure how this match will pan out. This “Firefly Fun House” bout is reportedly going to be similar to the “House of Horrors” match between Wyatt and Randy Orton in 2017, so be prepared for some surprises.

One thing’s for certain, The Fiend needs a big performance at WrestleMania. Wyatt slid down the pecking order following his humiliating Universal Championship loss to Goldberg in February, so he’ll be eager to show that he’s still capable of competing at this level.

On the other hand, John Cena has nothing to prove. In fact, The Champ made it very clear that he had no intention of fighting at WrestleMania. Having said that, he didn’t need much convincing when The Fiend challenged him.

Ultimately, Wyatt needs this a lot more than Cena, so The Fiend is likely to come out on top.

AJ Styles to Beat The Undertaker

The “Boneyard” match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles is another bout with a lot of uncertainty surrounding it. Nevertheless, it’s set to be an intriguing battle.

Ever since The Deadman got the better of Styles at Super ShowDown, AJ has been taunting the WWE legend. Styles clearly believes that The Undertaker is past his best, and the WrestleMania stage provides AJ with the perfect platform to prove his theory.

The Undertaker is viewed by most bookmakers as the favorite to win this match, but Styles needs a comeback victory. AJ has endured a wretched run leading up the Show of Shows, so it feels like the ideal time for the underdog to turn things around.

Kevin Owens to Beat Seth Rollins

WWE has built this rivalry up really well, and the comprehensive narrative behind this fight makes Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins one of the most anticipated matchups of WrestleMania 36.

Following Raw’s embarrassing display at Survivor Series, Rollins was quick to point the finger at Owens. Rollins believed that KO was largely to blame for their disappointing performance, but Owens wasn’t having any of it.

The two have been at each other’s throats for months, and now they’ve finally got their chance to wrestle head-to-head on the biggest stage of all.

Rollins has had the upper hand in previous battles, but Owens should regain some pride this time around.

Aleister Black to Beat Bobby Lashley

Aleister Black and Bobby Lashley are two of Raw’s standout performers, but one of them will have to accept defeat at WrestleMania 36. With very little history between the two, this is a strange matchup, to say the least.

Black has gone from strength to strength ever since he joined Raw in 2019, and he comes into WWE’s flagship event with plenty of momentum. The Dutch Destroyer’s eye-catching form means the bookies view Black as the favorite to win this bout.

However, Lashley certainly won’t surrender without any resistance. The All Mighty is at the top of his game right now, so this should be a tasty encounter.

Despite Lashley’s power, Black should prevail. The Dutch Destroyer’s rise looks set to continue with a statement Mania victory.

Edge to Beat Randy Orton

This match has been on the cards for a while. As soon as Randy Orton RKO’d Beth Phoenix, it was pretty obvious that Edge’s comeback fight at WrestleMania would be against The Viper.

After retiring in 2011, Edge is ready to show the wrestling world that he’s still got what it takes to compete at the highest level. The Rated-R Superstar made a shock comeback at Royal Rumble in January, eliminating Orton and enhancing their rivalry.

There’s no way that Orton will spoil Edge’s comeback story. At the end of the day, the feud between these two wrestlers has been going on for years, and Edge’s return has given WWE the chance to add a feel-good ending to this tale.

Elias to Beat King Corbin

It’s fair to say that neither of these men is very popular at the moment. King Corbin seems to have taunted just about everyone in his path recently, while his arrogant attack on WrestleMania host Rob Gronkowski has only turned more people against him.

Elias was quick to confront Corbin on SmackDown, and when Gronkowski suggested that the two wrestlers should settle their differences at the Show of Shows, both men agreed.

This definitely won’t be a standout match. In fact, it’s likely to be one of worst on this year’s WrestleMania card. But given that Corbin has embarrassed himself a lot of late, Elias should win this clash with ease.

The Street Profits to Beat Andrade & Angel Garza

The Street Profits demolished Rollins and Murphy to become the new Raw tag team champions. So, after seeing off The Monday Night Messiah, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford should cruise to a comfortable victory against Andrade and Angel Garza.

The bookies view Dawkins and Ford as the overwhelming favorites to win this bout, and it’s difficult to argue with that. The Street Profits are yet to face a challenge for their title, so it’s highly unlikely that they’ll fall at the very first hurdle.

Bayley to Win SmackDown Women’s Championship

With WWE failing to build towards the Bayley vs. Sasha Banks singles match that everyone was hoping for, the best friends have been put into a five-way elimination match alongside Lacey Evans, Naomi, and Tamina.

Bayley is the current SmackDown women’s champion, and it’s difficult to look past her in this bout. Sasha Banks will surely push the reigning champion all the way, but Bayley should retain her belt with a dominant display.

Evans, Naomi, and Tamina don’t stand a chance here.

Betting on Wrestlemania 36

There you have it. That concludes my WrestleMania 36 predictions for every 36 match. It’s definitely going to one of the strangest WWE events we’ve seen, but don’t let that distract you from the fact that there are a number of exciting bouts on this year’s card.
