WWE has been through a lot of turmoil in 2015. However, the injuries of major players and a sniff of the retirement of some of WWE's greatest legends this year has made things bleak for the company. Some major problems lie ahead for the company in 2016, you can read about those here. With all this turmoil, it is obvious that many bets are going around the world for and against the entertainment sports giants. Here we bring you 19 of the boldest predictions about WWE for 2016, many of which may be true.
Because one thing we know for sure is that he has been coveted by WWE. Now WWE won't want to waste such a huge star's entry on something as ordinary as NXT. So where then? The world's guessing Royal Rumble 2016.
Picture an event at Madison Square Garden that is featured exclusively on the WWE Network. This would pull back fans who are jumping ship and maybe this would help the company increase its rating as well.
After his return in December 2015, Zayn is believed to be the heir to the top babyface throne which right now rests with Balor. It is therefore obvious that Zayn may be able to make it to the main roster.
Ambrose is one of the most talented overall performer of the three former Shield members, and he could therefore carry the championship home.
If Bayley makes the heel, the reactions of the NXT fans will be very, very exciting. If this happens before she has a feud with Asuka, both can be strong when they are called for the main roster.
Because beating John Cena has made him look like a biggie. Now he might have a lot of feuds with other giants in the game because of the standard he has raised for himself and this might go a little tough on Owens.
Because this isn't really necessary on NXT and in fact, many are wishing that the heel authority might disappear as it slows down the pace of the game. If WWE is listening to these wishes, they probably might act as well
After having lost a match to Holly Holm, it looks like Ronda Rousey may not want to deteriorate her image as a champion by taking further risks in the ring.
This is just a prediction based on the fact that some or the other bigshot in WWE always seems to be injured and John Cena has had his time away from the company last year which leaves Lesnar to be the chosen one. To sit out.
Some woman needs to carry forward the idea of the Divas Resolution.This could be the best worker in the company at the moment which happens to be Asuka.
Only because there is nothing that WWE has got to do with Wyatt anymore.
Because with this, WWE might be able to 'generate' their next superstar, given the fact that they need one right now, very badly.
Because even if he is a major star at this moment, he cannot be the one who would carry on that tag for the next decade. The best thing to do with him then would be to make him face a defeat at someone's hand and help that someone become the next star.
Because nor Asuka, neither Bayley would be on NXT for a long time. NXT needs a fresh face and then, who else can be better than Blue Pants?
It is a prediction made every year but this time, it looks pretty possible because his retirement and the big thank you would also increase the show's rating which it needs badly at the moment.
Because he is a champion right now and if WWE needs a new star, it can well be Balor. This would also lead to a formation of a Balor Club shortly then.
Because he is popular and he might not win a heavyweight championship because it would be too hard to believe then. But he needs a rise and a singles title might just give him a hand.
Because this would give the company more content to feature, more action and more of the ratings eventually.
Because if Punk's UFC battle does not go as he planned, he might get a call back to where he started. He has potential, he has the face and we don't see one reason why he won't return in the given conditions.
