    Fact: At some point in the future, maybe 40-50 years, the WWE will close its doors due to lack of popularity. I know that it has been around in its current form for nearly 40 years, but eventually it will have problems and come to an end.

    FACT or FICTION: HHH will get into the Hall of Fame before Vince.

    I'm going to go FICTION if only because I think the Network will continue to appeal and people will still sign up to it, which will sustain the business for plenty long enough even if house show gates and ad revenue go down.

    EDIT: Bugger, too late on that one. For HHH being a HoFer before Vince I'm going to go with FICTION, mainly because I think HHH will, like Vince, not induct himself and that Vince will go in the moment his inflated steroid abused heart goes pop.

    FACT or FICTION: Within the next 5 years, one of the current 205 Live rostered talent will hold one of the major titles on either Raw or Smackdown (so US, IC, WWE, or Universal).

    For what it's worth, 205 Live roster taken from Wikipedia:

    Akira Tozawa
    Ariya Daivari
    The Brian Kendrick
    Cedric Alexander
    Drew Gulak
    Enzo Amore
    Gran Metalik
    Jack Gallagher
    Kalisto
    Lince Dorado
    Mustafa Ali
    Noam Dar
    Rich Swann
    TJP
    Tony Nese

    FACT: One of those guys I could conceivably see winning either the IC or US title. BUT the next and only guy who is under 205 to win a major title in the WWE will be Balor.


    FACT or FICTION: The Undertaker will be the second person ever to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and retire the next night. (cough, cough, Cena retires him in a retirement match)

    I mean, it could happen, but I'll go FICTION because it seems like there's a lot more roads that lead to it being fiction than fact from here.

    FACT or FICTION: low attendance at Takeover events will see NXT scaled back dramatically within five years.

    FICTION, but only because I don't think it'll be low attendance for a serious length of time. The one thing they might end up doing is cutting down holding out of town Takeover shows in non-wrestling markets. They've not really gone to anywhere 'non-traditional' prior to Houston, in my opinion.

    FACT or FICTION: Owen Hart gets a HoF induction before the 20th anniversary of his death.

    My instinct is that it's fiction. I honestly don't see Martha changing her mind anytime soon.

    Fact or Fiction: Ring of Honor will ultimately be a more successful 'second' promotion than TNA/Impact/GFW ever have been.

    Fact. ROH is already the 2nd promotion in the US. And probably 3rd in the world, behind NJPW.

    Fact or Fiction- 205 Live will be cancelled by the end of next year

    Seems like a big call to say they are already there, but OK. I must admit I haven't looked at any numbers lately to disagree with you.

    I see that as a FACT, if I'm honest. Late next year, but while I wouldn't be stunned if it made it to the 2019 Royal Rumble, I'd be more surprised than if it didn't.


    FACT or FICTION: A celebrity will appear as an active competitor in a high profile match at Wrestlemania in either 2018 or 2019.

    Fiction. I wouldn't count Ronda Rousey

    Fact, the guy is young and has so much time to improve. Seems like the WWE can see the potential too and are giving him plenty of time to develop, build on his skills and crate a character.

    As long as he doesn't stuff it up he will be one of the best.

    Fact or Fiction: Jericho will wrestle in the WWE in 2018

    Fact, you know it's all just a matter of time.

    Correction to Pennywise, CMLL is still the 3rd biggest promotion in the world.

    Fact or Fiction: With all the injuries stopping the SHIELD, WWE will finally turn Dean Ambrose heel on his return and he will have a feud of the year type program with Roman Reigns.

    Has Vince McMahon Lost Confidence in Roman Reigns.

    I want so hard for it to be fact but my faith in the WWE with Dean Ambrose is not what it once was so I will have to say fiction. My bet would be he returns against Rollins or winds up back in the intercontinental title scene.

    Fact or fiction, Jinder Mahal will never regain the Word Championship.

    Controversial as this might be, I think that is probably FICTION.

    FoF: NJPW will surpass the WWE as leader in the pro wrestling marketplace within our lifetime.

    Fiction, I feel like it will rise up and sweep up a lot of critical praise but will struggle to become a mainstream cultural institution in the west as WWE has managed to do.

    F/F Getting the Glorious theme song was the worst thing that could have happened to Bobby Roode long term.

    Fiction. Roode is 40 and yes he is still is in great shape, but he only has a few years left. He will turn heel and the theme will be as where it belongs, as a heel theme.

    Glorious has gotten Roode over with the WWE immediately, and will keep him that way for a while.

    F/F: Sable gets into the Hall when Lesnar does so they can go in together.

    I'll go with Fact, she can be on the undercard and he will be a headliner.

    f/f Triple H will still be wrestling in 10 years time

    Fact, but I believe he shall have a break in between. And by wrestling, I mean one show (WM) each year. He's done as an active competitor.

    FoF: The last match on the Wrestlemania card this year will involve the Undertaker.

    Yes, Cena/ Taker.

    FoF: Bryan have a chance to wrestle again in WWE
    And Jacob wrestled with God.

    Instinctively I'd say Fiction. If he is going to wrestle again I think it'll be elsewhere.

    FoF: The 2006 Royal Rumble is a poor man's version of the 2004 Rumble match.

    Fact: Benoit was so central to the 04 Rumble, while (as I recall) Rey spends a lot of the 06 Rumble missing in action. It's like a less visible version of the '16 version in that respect (although obviously Reigns didn't go coast to coast).

    FoF: The women's Rumble this year will be better received than the men's Rumble this year.

    Fiction. I really care less for the women.

    New Day will split in 2018
    And Jacob wrestled with God.

    Unfortunately Fact. Xavier is the first to break away followed by Big E in a main event push after Mania.

    F/F: Big E wins the WWE title by the end of 2018.

    I said he'd be the WWE Champion in 5 years when he was with Ziggler/AJ, that must have been 2013-ish. So for personal reasons, I hope that's a FACT.

    FoF: The Rock won't go into the HoF until Mania goes to Miamia, or at least Florida.

    Fact for sure. Rocky is Florida more than Rocky is WWE

    Fiction. The Cena match will be set up at RAW 25, but the retirement stip may bea few weeks away.


    FOF: Orton's Mania match will be as art of the ARMBAR as there is nothing for him to do.
