WWE WrestleMania 33: Ranking the chances of Championships changing hands at WWE WrestleMania 33
For many years, fans have been left wanting title matches at the biggest stage. This year, with the brand split adding more belts and feuds, the WWE is set to stuff the WrestleMania 33 card in Orlando with eight (or more) title matches.
Each match has been built with wavering levels of booking consistency and heat, giving some predictions an air of inevitability and others a complete unknown. Certain Champions and challengers appear locks to walk out with the belt, while others would make no sense whatsoever.
Of course, nothing is ever certain when it comes to booking WrestleMania, but here is my reasoning with the current title bouts, and how I see them playing out. From strong Champion favourites to certain victorious challengers, here is the ranking for most likely title changes.
#8 Cruiserweight title
A match that may deliver some of the most memorable one-on-one action from the night also appears to be the most predictable. While Austin Aries retains a solid following and has been a much-needed injection of character to 205 Live, I can’t see him beating Neville at WrestleMania 33.
Aries does not have undeniable momentum behind him, he is an outsider and is, therefore, going to lose to the more established WWE guy, and he turns 39 years old next month.
Neville has managed to claw together just enough substance to stand out as the Cruiserweight Champion, something the WWE has struggled to do since the division’s inception.
To keep switching the belt is not going to help the brand at all, so Neville should and likely will keep it until a more prominent occasion.
P.S. WWE would not put Sting or AJ Styles over in their debuts, what are they doing if they change that up now?
