Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Becky Lynch [WWE World Women’s Championship]
Rhea Ripley will retain the world women’s championship against potential 2-Time Royal Rumble Winner, Becky Lynch, in a first-time-ever match that was once teased in NXT and teased a lot more recently on Raw. Usually, Royal Rumble Winners should solidify their victory with a title win at Mania. However, thanks to how established Lynch is already, she is in that special situation where she does not need the world title anymore. Ripley needs this win a lot more to solidify her spot as a top star in the WWE, so she will win here and continue her dominant reign in 2024.
Prediction: Rhea Ripley
Seth Rollins (c) vs. CM Punk [WWE World Heavyweight Championship]
For what should be the boldest prediction of WrestleMania Night 1, CM Punk will return to WWE after 10 long years to win the Royal Rumble he left in 2014 and win the world title from Seth Rollins, who called him a “cancer” to professional wrestling. This is debatable, but it seems that Rollins is working the WWE fanbase so that their feud in WWE is just that more heated and entertaining. Thanks to Punk creating the Shield and both Rollins and Punk wanting to mainevent their first WrestleMania, this main event should be one to remember for centuries without a heist.
Prediction: CM Punk
