WWE.com — WWE Fastlane 2015 predictions

“As WWE races toward WrestleMania 31, no event before The Show of Shows holds as much intrigue or importance as WWE Fastlane, which airs live Sunday on WWE Network.

The fabric of WrestleMania’s WWE World Heavyweight Title main event will be determined when Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan joust for the top-contender spot. Also at WWE Fastlane, four titles will be defended, brothers will duke it out and three of WWE’s most popular Superstars will take aim at The Authority’s handpicked wrecking crew.

But who will win? Check out these WWE Fastlane predictions by WWE Hall of Fame announcer Howard Finkel, “The Voice of Extreme” Joey Styles and WWE.com editors, and add your own in the comments section below.”

WWE.com — WWE.com’s Top 25 Matches of 2014

“Whew, 2014, right? What a year it’s been: There were New Days, Uso craziness, Boo-tista, Bluetista,green Stardusts, Eras of Vacancy, good news, bad news (and Bad News), stunt doubles, evil twins and a vanishing Cody Rhodes (seriously, where’d that guy go?). Raw was occupied, Streaks were broken, Hulkamania ran wild, vigilantes dispensed justice, Kings of Swing were crowned and a full-fledged takeover ran rampant down in Full Sail University. And here we are now, when all the eating, sleeping and conquering has repeated itself to the last day of December, to bury and to celebrate 2014 in extravagant fashion.

No WWE fan needs to be reminded of the bar that in-ring competition set for itself this past year, but with so many classic matches in a single 12-month span, the question begs: Which was the best? WWE.com editors convened to select the cream of the crop (#Madness) and count down the year’s 25 best contests. Here’s how we did it: Several editors convened to select the matches, each of us ranked them on our own and consolidated them into a collective ranking depending on how each match was scored by all the editors. The process was arduous, contentious, and a steel chair may have been wielded at some point, but it was as democratic and collaborative as we get for this annual process. So pull up a chair and relive a hell of a year in WWE competition, presented by Foot Locker, and see what made our No. 1 spot. See you in 2015.”

WWE.com — 10 things we want to see in 2015

“The New Year always comes with so much promise and unpredictability. Who could have guessed last January that Evolution would reunite or that Daniel Bryan would finally get the better of The Authority in 2014? And the mere thought that someone could end The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak was irrational. But it all happened. 

After a year that drastically changed sports-entertainment forever, the bar is set pretty high for 2015. The WWE Universe wants to see more jaw-dropping, heart-thumping moments, and 2015 will surely bring them. As the New Year gets under way, look at the WWE Universe’s wish list for 2015.”

WWE.com — Editors’ Choice: Who is the future of WWE?

“Seth Rollins likes to call himself “the living, breathing future of WWE.” Even if he only got that moniker thanks to a glowing endorsement from his benefactor, Triple H (who, ahem, must have heard it first on WWE.com), the claim has some legs. Mr. Money in the Bank is nothing if not one of the most dynamic, versatile and physically gifted Superstars the WWE Universe has seen in years: A Jeff Hardy-style daredevil with a well-earned dash of megalomania to go with it, Rollins really does have it all.

Still, he’s certainly not the only guy in contention to be “the future.” Rollins has blinders on, as well he must, but there’s an astounding crop of talent sprouting around him even as he continues to reach both literal and figurative heights in his very young career. Just as we predicted Rollins as a future main-eventer all those months ago, WWE.com editors again regroup to select the Superstars (and Diva) we’ve pegged as the future of WWE. Plan accordingly.”

WWE.com — The Top 10 Matches of 2014 … So Far

“2014 is only seven months old, and there’s already been enough great wrestling in WWE to fill up three calendar years and 15 year-end recaps.

Ordinarily, we at WWE.com wait until the end of the year to unveil our definitive best-of lists, but there’s been too much good stuff already not to pause and acknowledge the work of the Superstars and Divas up to this point. So, WWE.com presents our somewhat hasty but thoroughly argued-over list of the top 10 bouts of 2014 so far.”
