14 Early WWE Predictions For WrestleMania 31

11. Survivor Series Grudge Match

On the go-home episode of RAW before the Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Eric Rowan got their jobs back after being fired for only three weeks. These three men should, at least in theory, want revenge for such treatment, especially after how the Authority€™s pawns were involved in the Rumble match itself. As a result, it wouldn€™t be surprising to see a grudge match in the form of a six-man tag team match featuring Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan against Kane, Big Show and Luke Harper. From a storyline perspective it would make sense for this to be one of those rivalries that gets a lot of time, while still involving the Authority, but also elevating these three wrestlers. It would be interesting to see the Authority€™s focus turn from the main-eventers like Bryan and Cena towards this trio so that there can be more build for their match. After all, Cena and Bryan don€™t need to be involved with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon as much as these guys do. As for the match itself, it would only make sense for team Ziggler to win, especially considering that their opponents, and especially Kane, have been getting involved in matches and causing disqualifications over the past year. So it would be nice for the guys who got screwed by the Authority to get a measure of revenge at WrestleMania.
