Rants & Rumours: Predictions For 2021 WWE

I normally do a Twitter thread full of predictions that are all wrong, but this year I decided that I would group them all in one spot and keep all the bad guesses together!

I think 2021 is hard to predict simply because WWE (at least the Raw half of things) is so bad right now. It’s hard to see if they adjust and try some new things, or keep down this same path. 

Anyways, predictions!

I’ll start with the usual stuff:
  • Men’s Royal Rumble: Brock Lesnar
  • Women’s Royal Rumble: Bianca Belair
  • Men’s Money In The Bank: Big E
  • Women’s Money In The Bank: Charlotte Flair
  • Wrestlemania 37 Main Event: Roman Reigns (c) vs Bill Goldberg for the WWE Universal Championship
Champions To Close The Year:
  • WWE Champion: Drew McIntyre
  • WWE Universal Champion: Randy Orton
  • WWE Women’s Champion (Raw): Charlotte Flair
  • WWE Women’s Champion (SmackDown): Becky Lynch 
  • WWE Intercontinental Champion: Matt Riddle
  • WWE United States Champion: Keith Lee
  • WWE Tag Team Champions (Raw): Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake
  • WWE Tag Team Champions (SmackDown): The Street Profits
  • WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions: Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott
  • WWE 24/7 Champion: R-Truth
  • NXT Champion: Damien Priest 
  • NXT Women’s Champion: Candice LaRae
  • NXT North American Champion: Dexter Lumis
  • NXT Cruiserweight Champion: Curt Stalion
  • NXT Tag Team Champions: Ever Rise
  • NXT UK Champion: Tyler Bate
  • NXT UK Women’s Champion: Piper Niven
  • NXT UK Tag Champions: The Hunt 
Now some other stuff:
  • NXT Call Ups: Shotzi Blackheart, Rhea Ripley, Karrion Kross, Undisputed Era & Finn Balor moves back to main roster
  • Wrestlemania weekend will include a bigger Hall of Fame ceremony this year so last years planned inductees can have their moment & give speeches
  • Cesaro will be in new tag team with another partner that holds tag titles at some point in 2021
  • Chad Gable with get a short run with a single title that isn’t the 24/7 championship
  • Randy Orton will get to 17 world title runs, being tied with John Cena & Ric Flar
  • AJ Styles will not hold any singles WWE titles in 2021
  • NXT will move to a night other than Wednesday night. 
Some seem like a layup, some are me heaving it up from half court.. that’s the fun in this! It’ll be interesting to see how badly I do when I recap this in late 2021!
