WM 34 Predictions

It's that time of year again; Wrestlemania (WM)
Now I can't say that I'm excited about this year's WM. Only because I feel that it's really predictable. However, that doesn't mean that it won't be entertaining as hell. Nor does that mean that my predictions will be correct. I mean I've been wrong before, so it can easily happen again.
Predictions are as follows:

1) Dolph Ziggler wins Andre the Giant Battle Royal
2) Becky Lynch wins Women's Battle Royal
3) Bludgeon Bros. def Usos and The New Day
4) Cedric Alexander def. Mustafa Ali
5) Kurt Angle/Rounda Rousey def. HHH/Stephanie
6) Braun Strauman/ TBD def. The Bar.   ( I have no idea who Strauman's partner is going to be)
7) Seth Rollins def. Finn and The Miz
8) Sammy/KO def. Daniel Bryan/Shane
9) Charlotte def Askua with Carmella cash in
10) Shinsuke def. AJ Styles
11) Roman Reigns def. Brock Lesnar
12) Undertaker confronts Cena...a match....? Probably not.

Wow that's alot of matches. Hopefully they will keep the filler down to a minimum and every match can get at least 15 min. That's not including entrance and exit times.

2017 review in professional wrestling

2017 is now in the past. Alot of ups and alot of downs in the world of professional wrestling. 
Overall, this year has been a really good year for a pro wrestling fan. The world seems to be getting smaller with the internet. Before there were matches in the "indy" scene or in different countries you couldn't see. But that is no longer the case. With stars like Kenny Omega, The Young Bucs, Adam Cole, Kazuchika Okada and Cody Rhodes. The scene of professional wrestling has changed. 
Think about this. The biggest match and possibly what will be the best match in 2018. Will take place in Japan. That has probably happened before, but with the internet and social media. EVERYONE knows about it and all who want to see it, will see it. Plus on top of that; WWE has little to nothing to do with it. 
2017 solidified what we found out in 2016. You don't need WWE to make a HUGE impact.

Speaking of WWE. The biggest up for me was the return of the Hardy Boyz at WM. The biggest down was Alexia Bliss This is Your Life! I personally can't stand "This is Your Life" segments. None of them have been good. NONE!   

Switching gears to NXT; Still a very strong brand with great talent. It was better last year, but that doesn't mean that NXT in 2017 was bad. With stars like Ember Moon, Alister Black, Velveteen Dream, Sanity, and Undisputed Era. 2017 was a strong year for NXT. 

TNA, Impact Wrestling, Global Force Wrestling....? How many name changes can you go through in one year? Not only that, how many people came back to that company and turned around and left again? Besides the early part of 2017, when the Broken Hardys were there. I can't say there was something ground breaking or awe inspiring that happened in the six sided ring in 2017.

Sadly I have not watched much Lucha Underground or ROH this year. I hear great things that are happening in those companies and 2017 has been a good year for both.

So long 2017. Hello 2018. *Cheers*

NXT Takeover has done it again...well for the most part. It was a solid PPV, I just wasn't all that excited about the main event. It was just okay. Spoiler Alert: Adam Cole made his debut in NXT.

How WWE can/should fix Bayley

Starting off, I want to say that I really like Bayley. Both as a character and wrestler. So this is not an "attack" on her or her ability to wrestle.
Now that I got that out of the way. Let's start with where the character was getting stale.
Did they give her the belt too soon? Personally, I don't think so...Did she do much with the belt when she had it? Not really, and that's were the problem started...in my opinion. She didn't present as a confident champion. She didn't hold the belt long enough to increase that confidence and make her the person to beat.
Then there was the feud with Alexa Bliss, who just tore into Bayley on the mic and backed it up in the ring. Again making Bayley look weak both on the mic and in the ring. And of course their match at Extreme Rules made both women look bad, but especially Bayley.  She didn't get extreme because she's too nice? She wouldn't do whatever it took to win? She just looked so weak and incompetent.
Bayley has gone from a strong women's champion in NXT to a little insecure girl who can win, but does so because of luck and not skill.
Do you see the problem? Her character hasn't evolved. And now her momentum has been halted due to injury.
So, how to fix this? It's pretty simple, toughen up Bayley and make her more confident. She doesn't have to tell us she was a fan when she was a kid. That's not necessary; the people are behind her the connection already exists. She doesn't have to turn her heel, please don't!!
When she comes back from injury. Have her feud with Alexa again. Let Alexa cut a promo on Bayley. And Bayley doesn't have to say anything...She just has to punch Alexa in the face. Then in a backstage segment. Have Bayley say she is sick of being treated like a child, having her kindness mistaken for weakness by Alexa and then challenge Alexa to a No Holds Barred match. Make
the match long enough and make Bayley  aggressive through that match, and have her WIN IT!
That's all WWE has to do. How hard is that?
