2017 WRESTLING PREDICTIONS

Below are some incredible predictions made by the Friends during another botched recording of the show. Never fear! Our well-paid leprechauns took great notes, so you can come right back here to see how the Friends did with their creepy & prescient ways.

Erik:
  1. Due to America’s renewed tension with Russia, Rusev is “Americanized” and turned into a patriotic face, a la Nikolai Volkoff in the early 90s.
  2. Current ROH champ Kyle O’Reilly will also be TNA’s final champion.
  3. The next Warrior Award recipient (or close relative of) will have the trophy revoked after it’s revealed later in the year that he/she is a racist pedophile.
  4. Our latest fallen few will include Jimmy Snuka, Vader, Kamala, George the Animal Steele, Jerry Lawler, and Raven
  5. The Miz and Renee Young will begin a real-life backstage affair, and Dean Ambrose will spend some time in jail for assaulting him at his home. This will kick off a new Attitude Era.


Andy:
  1. Monday Night Raw will dip under 1.5 throughout the year at least 5 separate times.
  2. The Hardy Boyz return to WWE, being drafted to the Blue brand.
  3. Long-time referee Mike Chioda will break his arm during a match.
  4. Bo Dallas, The Vaudevillians, Darren Young, Paige, Tamina Snuka, Tyler Breeze, and The Ascension are this year's pink slip recipients
  5. Michael Cole will be fired from his announcing gig for saying something racist.


Blake:
  1. SmackDown Live will edge out Raw in quality, consistently drawing higher ratings towards the end of the year.
  2. Sami Zayn will hold his first singles title, likely the US Championship, after defeating longtime rival Kevin Owens.
  3. The Hardy Boyz return to WWE, finding a spot on Monday Night Raw.
  4. Despite his mega-push, Braun Strowman will not win any gold in 2017.
  5. The Royal Rumble will see the debut of the following superstars: Tye Dillinger, Samoa Joe, and Finn Balor


Eric "The Bikeman" Carlson:
  1. 2017 is the year of Roman Reigns not winning the Universal Title at any point in the year.
  2. 2017 is the year of Stardust returning to the WWE.
  3. 2017 is the year of Kevin Owens holding the Universal Title at least 61% of the year (219 days)
  4. 2017 is the year of Raw going back to a TV-14 rating.
  5. 2017 is the year of Ric Flair sees his record-setting title wins tied by John Cena.
