It’s 2015 which means that another year of wrestling is underway, recently the authority were reinstated by John Cena and it turned out to be one of the biggest twists of the last few months of 2014. Nobody predicted that they would be brought so soon after losing power, this means that WWE has plenty more twists in store and here are some predictions for 2015.
Big Show will make a face turn (again):
This is more of a given however it still counts as a prediction. If there’s anything that Big Show is known for, it’s how often he switches sides, in fact he switches so often that nobody cares and if you were to bet against big show making a turn you’d receive a good amount of money should he fail to do that. The circumstances under which Big Show switches sides are still up for debate but knowing WWE’s creative team, it will be handled in a very underwhelming manner.
John Cena will equal Ric Flair’s record:
At this point it’s not even a prediction, it’s a given because winning world championships is what John Cena does. Since John Cena won his first world championship in 2005 he’s held a world championship every year with the exception of 2012 when CM Punk had the WWE Championship for the whole year.
WWE has slowly built up John Cena’s reputation as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, having him deal with powerful rivals that other wrestlers can’t and having him be endorsed by the likes of Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan and The Rock. John Cena is clearly on the tail end of his career and for him to do something that’s truly defining, he must equal Ric Flair’s record.
Cena currently has 15 world championships to his to name whilst Ric Flair has 16 so it’s not hard to see John Cena going for one last title run this year.
Kevin Owens will join the main roster:
Kevin Owens signed for WWE in 2014 and made his wrestling debut at NXT: R Evolution, already he is in a feud with top NXT star Adrian Neville and seems to be headed towards a feud with NXT Champion Sami Zayn when he wraps up business with Neville.
Owens has 14 years of experience under his belt and this has been repeatedly mentioned in NXT, with that much experience there’s no need for him to be held up in developmental for so long.
Seth Rollins will cash in at WrestleMania 31:
Seth Rollins won the Money in the Bank briefcase in June and has yet to cash it in. Brock Lesnar’s limited TV schedule hasn’t given Rollins much of an opportunity to cash in his briefcase but with WrestleMania around the corner, he has the perfect chance to cash in.
Whether it be Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns that stands victorious at WrestleMania 31 Seth Rollins will be in a great position to cash in for his first WWE World heavyweight Championship run and with all the future talk that Seth Rollins has being spewing onto our screens over the past few months, it only makes sense the wrestling calendar starts off with Seth Rollins as the world champion.
Survivor Series will be a disappointment:
Survivor Series is typically the worst of the big four pay-per-views however Survivor Series manages to be especially disappointing. With Survivor Series, it tends to have a decent build up however it always has matches that fail to live up to the hype. There’s not much of a reason to believe that this year will be different unfortunately but this is something you can bet on.
