WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is predicting that plenty of gold will change hands at WrestleMania 39.
At last month’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley won the men’s and women’s Rumble matches respectively, and have both declared their upcoming ‘Mania matches.
On his podcast, Kurt noted that he expects Rhodes to dethrone Roman Reigns and Ripley to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. He said,
“Without a doubt, I think those matches are going to be really, really good. You know, Cody Rhodes. I’m expecting him to win this thing. I think it’s his time and Rhea Ripley, I wouldn’t doubt if she won it, too. She’s been up and coming. She’s been pretty strong lately. So, you never know.”
If Kurt’s prediction comes true, it will mark the third year that the Men’s and Women’s Rumble match winners have walked away with the goal, after 2019 (Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch) and 2020 (Drew McIntyre & Charlotte Flair.)
