WrestleMania 39 Predictions
Roman Reigns (+300) vs. Cody Rhodes
When the bell rings to start the WrestleMania main event match on Sunday night, Roman Reigns will have been champion for a whopping 944 days. Right up through the go-home episode of RAW this past Monday, Cody Rhodes has been built up as the man who will finally take down the Tribal Chief and put an end to this historic reign.
Clearly, the WWE betting odds are on board with that outcome, as Reigns is a +300 underdog. However, before you run and bet on "The American Nightmare," there are rumors about WWE's desire to extend Reigns’ title run to the 1000-day mark.
Rhodes has already wreaked havoc on The Bloodline during the leadup to WrestleMania. That theme continued on the go-home episode of RAW, when he dealt Solo Sikoa his first-ever loss. His momentum has to stall sometime, right? No doubt, and Reigns will get some assistance if he does retain the title.
But a +300 price on the most dominant champion in recent history is too good to pass up.
Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens (-3000) vs. The Usos
Thanks to a bit of intervention from Cody Rhodes, longtime friends Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are finally back on the same page. The storytelling of Zayn’s time in The Bloodline was the best thing going in the WWE this past year.
Although Jey Uso ultimately rejoined the Samoan faction alongside his brother Jimmy, subliminal remarks made it clear that the pressure Reigns placed on his twin brother made him feel forced into doing so.
The only way to conclude this incredible months-long story is to crown Zayn and Owens as champs. From there, it would be quite possible that The Bloodline ultimately implodes.
Sheamus (+140) vs. Gunther vs. Drew McIntyre
Sheamus already boasts a Hall of Fame-caliber resume, but the one major blemish is that he's never held the Intercontinental Championship. After coming up short against Gunther one-on-one in 2022, he gets another shot in the form of a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania.
The third man taking part in what's guaranteed to be a heavy-hitting fight is Drew McIntyre. Just one month ago, Sheamus and McIntyre were on the same page as a tag team. That's all out the window now with a title on the line.
This is without a doubt one of the toughest matches on the card to predict. It would hardly be a shock to see Gunther overcome the odds and retain the title, but the Triple Threat rules mean he doesn’t even need to be pinned to lose his championship. Sheamus capturing the one title that's eluded him at WrestleMania is a script that truly writes itself.
Austin Theory (-400) vs. John Cena
Aside from a single face-to-face meeting on RAW three weeks ago, there's been very little direct buildup to this United States title match. John Cena overwhelmed Austin Theory on the mic that night and is clearly the face in this matchup. But the problem with Cena capturing the title is that he's nowhere close to being a full-time WWE superstar.
WWE did announce this match will be the first to take place on Saturday night, undoubtedly in an effort to get the fans into SoFi Stadium early. But fans who do arrive on time will likely be destined for disappointment. Theory has yet to defend the championship in a “clean” match, and his WrestleMania encounter with the 16-time world champ figures to be no different.
Seth Rollins (-350) vs. Logan Paul
Based on the buildup to this match, one might believe social media icon Logan Paul holds a legitimate shot at upsetting Seth “Freakin” Rollins. After all, Paul’s elimination of Rollins at the Royal Rumble was what first ignited this whole feud. Since then, he's screwed Rollins out of a win at the Elimination Chamber and knocked him out cold with sucker punches twice on RAW.
On Monday’s go-home episode of RAW, Rollins said he'll be “the joke” if he loses to Paul at WrestleMania. Surely, WWE isn't going to make one of its biggest stars lose to a part-time outsider, right?
The -350 price on ‘The Visionary’ to win probably should be much higher.
Brock Lesnar (-800) vs. Omos
What exactly is going for Omos right now? His incredible physical stature and nothing else.
Standing over seven feet tall and weighing over 400 pounds, Omos is undoubtedly a physical specimen. However, he's terrible in the ring and regularly loses matches at premium live events that are built up solely around his massive size.
Perhaps even more telling is that Omos bested Brock Lesnar in each of their face-to-face exchanges on RAW leading up to WrestleMania. It’s impossible not to harken back to the Crown Jewel event from last fall, when Lesnar was thoroughly dominated throughout his match against Bobby Lashley, but he ultimately emerged victorious.
A similar script and outcome is likely here.
Edge (+100) vs. Demon Finn Balor
Hell in a Cell matches are always bangers, and the disdain that Edge and Finn Balor have for one another only adds to the intrigue of this WrestleMania showdown. Since Balor made The Judgment Day turn on Edge, these two have been going at it nonstop. And Balor has been getting the better of him to date.
Edge upped the ante on this match even further when he called out the Demon Finn Balor, who hasn't been seen in quite some time. While there could be some hijinks coming from The Judgment Day, we’ll back the “Rated R Superstar” to get some redemption on the grandest stage of them all.
Rhea Ripley (-1000) vs. Charlotte Flair
Rhea Ripley has said she's destined to become a star and needs to take down Charlotte Flair. She's been borderline unstoppable in WWE since joining Judgment Day. Look no further than entering the Women’s Royal Rumble at No. 1 and lasting the entire time to win this title opportunity.
While Flair is arguably the best female wrestler the sport has ever seen, a loss to Ripley at WrestleMania is one she can more than afford to take. Recall that Flair got the better of “The Eradicator” when the two battled for the NXT Championship on this stage three years ago. Ripley has come a long way since then.
Bianca Belair (-110) vs. Asuka
*Yawn* Look, there’s no denying that WWE screwed up, with the script calling for Ripley to choose Flair as her WrestleMania opponent instead of Bianca Belair. As a result, we're left with a very bland matchup between the RAW Women’s champ and the weird/creepy Asuka.
Belair won the title at last year’s WrestleMania, and she's carried the red brand for an entire year since. The buildup to this match has been both awkward and extremely underwhelming. If there’s a prop on Asuka to spray her blue mist, fire away on "Yes." That said, WWE has built Belair up to a point that it should take more than blue mist to end her current title reign.
Rey Mysterio (+150) vs. Dominik Mysterio
Rey Mysterio will go head-to-head with his estranged son Dominik on the same weekend he'll be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. After months of mental and emotional torture, Rey finally snapped and slugged his son on last week’s episode of SmackDown after Dominik mouthed off to his mother, who was sitting ringside.
Based on crowd reactions alone, it’s quite clear Dominik is the most hated man in all of WWE right now. With help from his Judgment Day cohorts, Dom has also been winning almost every exchange he's had with Rey lately. There’s no way he beats his legendary father clean.
Given how emotional this storyline has been, backing Rey to get vengeance at +150 odds makes for a compelling pick.
Becky Lynch, Lita and Trish Stratus (-215) vs. Damage CTRL
Becky Lynch’s extended feud with Bayley ultimately turned into her recruiting Hall of Famers Lita and Trish Stratus for backup. Then Lynch and Lita took down Damage CTRL’s Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky to capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. This back-and-forth storyline is now set to culminate with a tag team showdown between the two groups.
There isn’t much to work with here in terms of buildup and gut feel. Harkening back to the underwhelming RAW Women’s title match, there's clearly some work for WWE to do when it comes to the women’s division on the red brand. We’ll go with ‘The Man’, Lita, and Stratus simply as a crowd-pleasing result.
Viking Raiders (+135) vs. Strowman/Ricochet vs. The Street Profits vs. Alpha Academy
It's somewhat surprising that Braun Strowman and Ricochet are the betting favorites to win this men’s tag team showcase match due to their lack of long-term continuity relative to the other teams.
Speaking of continuity, longshot Alpha Academy can be ruled out immediately given that Otis is currently torn between staying alongside Chad Gable and pursuing a modeling career with Maxxine Dupri and the Maximum Male Models.
When it comes to incentive, the winner of this match will likely get the first opportunity at the WWE Tag Team title post-WrestleMania. With Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens fully expected to defeat The Usos, it would make more sense for their first defense to come against a heel pairing.
The “heel” persona certainly doesn’t fit The Street Profits. But it suits the Viking Raiders, who are overdue for a push since returning with Valhalla by their side.
Morgan/Rodriguez (OFF) vs. Natalya/Shotzi vs. Rousey/Baszler vs. Green/Deville
At the time of writing, there are no betting odds listed for the women’s tag team showcase. But those making pool picks or otherwise on all 13 WrestleMania matches can quickly cut this field in half. Clearly, the winner will be either the team of Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez or the dominant tandem of Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler.
It's very strange to see Rousey in what most would consider an “undercard” match at WrestleMania. The winning team will be whichever one WWE prefers to push. Rousey and Baszler seem like the most logical choice to prevail.
