Wrestlemania XXV Preview and Predictions: JBL vs. Rey Myserio

So here we go folks, I’m going to preview and give my prediction for each Wrestlemania XXV match in separate posts.

John Bradshaw Layfield puts the W.W.E. Intercontinental Championship on the line against Rey Mysterio this Sunday. JBL says that he will do something historic at Wrestlemania, something that has never been done before. So what do I think that will be?

Yes, it has been a number of years since the IC title has been put on the line at ‘mania, however, there is more to it than that. Smackdown commentator, Long Island native, and legit badass, Tazz, left his post as color commentator after taping this Friday’s Smackdown on Monday night (yes, that actually does make sense). So I think that JBL’s historic moment will be that he will be the color guy on the pay-per-view for Smackdown matches along with Jim Ross and he will also successfully defend his title against Rey Mysterio. JBL may even retire from the ring, which he is expected to do in the very near future.

What kind of match will this be? JBL is limited because of his bad back, but Mysterio can go and will most likely dominate the bout until JBL comes out of nowhere with his “clothesline from hell” finisher.

By the way, I've become a regular listener of the show "Between the Ropes" which airs every Tuesday night at 6 o'clock on ESPN Florida, but you can listen to the show on the "Between the Ropes" Website here. Oh yeah, and I called in to last night's show to ask the guys a question.
