It’s that time of year again.

The Mecca of professional wrestling. Where fans do their annual pilgrimage from all over the world to Vince McMahon‘s third love-child.

I am, of course, referring to WRESTLEMANIA!

And this year Vinny Mac’s baby turns 30-years-old. Boy has it given us some fantastic memories.

Hulk Hogan slamming Andre gets a lot of plaudits but my favourite Hulkamania moment was when he saved the USA from Sgt Slaughter and General Adnan.

My favourite wrestler of all-time is Randy Savage, so WM IV always gives me warm memories winning his first WWF title. His match of the year winner at WM III was exquisite but the emotional roller-coaster of WM VII tops the lot.

The ladder match between two soon-to-be Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon at WM X or the double character turn of Austin V Bret Hart at WM 13.

TLC matches between the Hardy Boyz, Dudleys and E&C blew us all away and a list of Mania memories wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the Undertaker’s streak.

But at Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans, the WWE has a chance to create some new memories.

Raw has been putting on good shows for just over a month but sadly the build-up to this Wrestlemania was not as smooth as it should have been.

We can only assume they messed up the damp squib that would have been the main event and have quickly re-worked it, because Batista v Randy Orton was never the right way to go.

And hopefully WWE have learnt their lesson for next year’s showpiece event because, as shown from The Rock v Cena and their year-long build-up, if you give something time to develop buy rates will come in.

So without further ado here’s my predictions for this year’s Showcase of the Immortals.

Tag title match

I feel they’ve missed a real trick to give Cesaro a much-needed singles push by using him in the battle royal.

The Usos have had a fantastic year and deserve to cap it off by retaining their titles at Mania.

Six-man tag match

Again feel like they’ve missed a trick by not doing more with one of the best factions the WWE have come up with in more than a decade. That is The Shield, of course – not Outlaws and Kane.

They teased the will-they, won’t-they angle but as I mentioned above I think poor planning and Daniel Bryan or HHH being thrust into the main event meant they held off on a Shield triple-threat.

Hopefully this does mean a TLC ladder match between The Shield and The Wyatts a little further down the road. Because their short feud just wasn’t enough!

But back to Mania… The Shield should surely pick up the win.

Divas title match

This shows the state of the women’s division in the WWE at the moment that they had no real storyline but they instead threw everyone in the one match.

I can see it going three ways:

1. Brie Bella wins then her and D-Bry are a couple with all the gold. But does she deserve it? I wouldn’t say so.

2. It’s a year to celebrate legends and Tamina, daughter of Jimmy who was involved in main event of Wrestlemania one, might just step out of AJ’s shadow by winning her title.

Or 3. AJ Lee to retain the gold. She’s far and away the best diva of this bunch. She’s great on the mic and in-character – it’s a shame WWE have let her go stale.

A win here and a feud with Paige from NXT. Champ v champ would be welcomed.

Andre the Giant battle royal

I think Sheamus is an obvious contender to win this inaugural event.

Big Show is a good candidate and, being a giant himself, it would be a nice way to commemorate the Eighth Wonder of the World.

But there are three participants still to be announced for this one.

I wouldn’t put it past the Hulkster to dawn the tights and pick up the win himself.

Expect a big name to be announced as a surprise and I’ll take a punt that CM Punk will win this.

Cena v Wyatt

This has been brilliant.

John Cena, yet again, hasn’t put a foot wrong and we’ve yet to see the young and exciting Bray Wyatt look out of his depth – he certainly hasn’t in his exchanges with Cena.

His promos have been nothing short of awesome – spine-tingling stuff.

Cena has his critics but he has always put over the talent when needs to which makes me think Bray Wyatt and his hearty crew will pick up his first Mania win.

Daniel Bryan v HHH

This has been coming for months and I’ve enjoyed the new corporation angle on a weekly basis. It has however, ruined far too many PPV main events so I’m glad we’re finally getting a pay-off.

HHH and Steph have been excellent in promos these past few weeks. And I expect this one to be fantastic but Daniel Bryan will pick up the victory.

Brock Lesnar v Undertaker

Brock, for me, is an interesting choice for this mainly because his rough style won’t benefit the wrestling style of an ageing Undertaker.

But it may be signalling that this will be one last hoorah for the Deadman. I hope I’m wrong…

But expect Undertaker and his streak to stay alive.

WWE World Heavyweight title match

Randy Orton has been booked horribly in the build-up and has no chance of winning a title match even though he has the belts.

Batista would send the crowd home absolutely distraught and they wouldn’t dare do that to a Mania crowd.

But I predict HHH to make a run-in, turn on Orton and Batista then hand Bryan the title after gaining respect for him due to their match earlier.

And the crowd will have their pop. And the Yes movement will have a new champ in Daniel Bryan.
