Rants & Rumours: 2021 Predictions Followup!

I’m not very good at this! Now that our last show of the year is in the books, it’s time to make the call on the right, the wrong, and the down right awful predictions made by me for 2021!

I almost gave myself “correct” on my champions to close the year with Becky & Charlotte, but I gave the brands wrong so I can’t do that. So many of my champs to close the year aren’t with the company anymore, and although THAT isn’t funny, it is hilarious how badly I missed the mark with those predictions. We’ll see how things go for 2022!
