Austin Theory (c) vs. Seth Rollins [U.S. Title]
Seth Rollins will win back the U.S. Title from Austin Theory because he needs to complete his feud with Cody Rhodes at Mania with that title on the line. The only way fans can remain invested in the fourth match between these two is if they raise the stakes with a title on the line, especially a title that has eluded Rhodes’ career. As for Theory, he has to lose the title before Mania so that he can have that big rumored match against all-timer John Cena. Since Cena can’t really win the U.S. Title due to his Hollywood schedule, it would not make sense for him to battle Theory for the belt.
Prediction: Seth Rollins
Gunther (c) vs. Braun Strowman (w/Ricochet) [Intercontinental Title]
Gunther will retain the Intercontinental Title against Braun Strowman after he runs through World Cup Winner Ricochet because Gunther needs to continue his dominance as the champ on the road to Mania and Strowman ruined any chances of becoming champion anytime soon after his recent unprofessional rant on Twitter regarding indie wrestlers. Gunther will likely lose his title to either Sheamus or Drew McIntyre at Mania instead because Sheamus needs his unfinished babyface payoff against Gunther and McIntyre needs his consolation prize from losing to Roman Reigns.
