Pinfalls: WWE WrestleMania 39

With WWE WrestleMania dominating this weekend, my podcast partner Tommy Else and I are back with Pinfalls. Tommy and I analyze the 13 matches and make our predictions.

WrestleMania 39 takes place today and tomorrow at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. As always, it will air on the Peacock Network beginning with pre-show coverage today at 5 p.m. CST.

The matches are:

WWE United States Championship

Austin Theory (c) vs. John Cena

Seth “Freaking” Rollins vs. Logan Paul

Six-Woman Tag Match

Becky Lynch, Trish Stratus & Becky Lynch vs. Damage CTRL (Bayley, Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky)

Brock Lesnar vs. Omos (with MVP)

WWE Raw Women's Championship

Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka

WWE SmackDown Women's Championship

Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley

WWE Intercontinental Championship-Triple Threat

Gunther (c) vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre

Hell in a Cell

Edge vs. “The Demon” Finn Balor

Women's WrestleMania Showcase Fatal Fourway Tag Team

Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez vs. Natalya & Shotzi vs. Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler vs. Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville

Men's WrestleMania Showcase Fatal Fourway Tag Team

Braun Strowman & Ricochet vs. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis) vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar with Valhalla)

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship

The Uso's (c) vs. Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens

Rey Mysterio vs. Dominik Mysterio

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship

Roman Reigns (c) vs. Cody Rhodes

Although we look forward to WrestleMania and think there are some great matches, Tommy and I would still like to see it returned to a one day event. All wrestlers should be at their best, but some of these matches are more worthy of main-eventing a Raw episode.

As usual, I won't give awaay spoilers, but Tommy and I disagree on a few match outcomes. For the year, I have a slight edge on Tommy, as I am 8-2, while he is 7-3.
