Predicting The Next 10 WWE PPV Main Events

There’s a science to issuing predictions of pro wrestling storylines. Well, it’s certainly not an art: if it was, it would probably make more sense and be prettier to look at.

10 Biggest Career Transformations In WWE History

Some wrestlers change very little over the course of their careers, while others undergo radical transformations. Those who change are usually the smartest, as they know how to gauge changing fan reactions and adapt their presentation accordingly; while those who stay the same tend to be either too blind to see fans getting bored with repetition, or in too comfortable a position to consider doing something else.

History has shown that pretty much anyone that’s rubbed the Boss up the wrong way can make amends and be back on Raw one day, whether it’s Steve Austin bringing his ball back in 2003, the Ultimate Warrior building bridges to finally make it into the WWE Hall Of Fame last year shortly before his untimely passing, or Bret Hart putting the most infamous wrestling bust-up in history to rest when he returned to WWE’s flagship programme after over 12 years away in 2010. What Happened: After an amazing early push that saw him win the Royal Rumble, bag a Money In The Bank contract and win his first World Title courtesy of a cash-in on a white-hot CM Punk (yeah, it didn’t really benefit anyone in hindsight, did it?)
