Ronda Rousey (c) (w/Shayna Baszler) vs. Raquel Rodriguez (w/Shotzi Blackheart) [SmackDown Women’s Title]
Raquel Rodriguez will dethrone Ronda Rousey in a swerve because Rodriguez got the rub from Rousey when they shook hands after her debut match on SmackDown. Rousey is rumored to hold the SmackDown Women’s Title at Mania, and it is very likely she capitalizes on Rodriguez’s injured arm to solidify the storyline angle and retain the title. Despite all of that on the road to Rodriguez’s first main roster PPV title match, she still has the best story to dethrone Rousey and can be a breath of fresh air in this depleted division before Charlotte returns for her rematch clause.
Prediction: Raquel Rodriguez
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Alexa Bliss [Raw Women’s Title]
Bianca Belair will retain the title against Alexa Bliss because Belair merely needs a filler feud before she goes to Mania to defend her title and Alexa Bliss is in this spot to kickstart her heel turn against a top babyface. Unlike Bayley and Ripley, Bliss is the only other prospective heel who can afford a loss to Belair. Bliss just needs a strong showing that showcases her heel-like tactics and makes clear to the fans that her character transformation is forthcoming. Bliss will likely battle her tag partner, Asuka, at Mania to redeem herself with a victory that solidifies her heel turn.
Prediction: Bianca Belair
