Wrestlemania is approaching, so it's that time of the year to pretend we are Vince McMahon, and imagine what the big show at Camping World Stadium will look like on April 2 in Orlando, Florida.

There's no science behind predictions. As we know, storylines can change in the blink of an eye and injuries happen. But now that we are post-Royal Rumble, we certainly can speculate with some confidence what the Wrestlemania card would and should look like.

Here we go, Wrestlemania 33, as it might be:

Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg

This may or may not be for a title, as there is still a lot of time left between now and Mania. Goldberg has humiliated Lesnar twice now at the Survivor Series and the Royal Rumble. Lesnar will be around the WWE longer than Goldberg will. It will be time for Lesnar to get his revenge and retire Goldberg once and for all.

Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt

Orton won the Royal Rumble and is going to Wrestlemania, but who will be champion? Well, there's an Elimination Chamber event on Feb. 12 in Phoenix and it makes sense for Orton to challenge his 2016 mentor, Wyatt, for the championship. With his elaborate entrance and great walkout song, Wyatt is poised for a championship run against his most prominent protege.

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman vs. The Undertaker

Reigns has been feuding with Strowman for a couple of weeks and each one has cost the other the Universal championship. The WWE has built up Strowman strong for months, which is exactly why they will probably feed him to Reigns for the victory at Mania. But wait, we have The Undertaker, who also battled with Reigns at the Royal Rumble. The crowd would go nuts every time Strowman and The Undertaker double-team Reigns. Look for The Undertaker to prevail here in a match that would be much better than it sounds. The streak continues. Sort of. The new streak.

Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho

This bromance officially comes to an end at Wrestlemania. While these two are hilarious together, the finger-pointing is escalating to the point of no return. Owens recently did nothing to help Jericho when Strowman was hammering on him during Monday Night Raw. Their egos are too big to continue to share the spotlight. These two will collide at Mania, but the question is, will it be for one title, no titles or both the U.S. and Universal championships?

Charlotte vs. Nia Jax

It looks like Jax is getting positioned for a big run for the title after squashing Sasha Banks. This could be the feud that turns Charlotte baby face. Charlotte, one of the best female wrestlers in a long, long time, would have the crowd behind her against the imposing Jax. As good as Charlotte is, she should turn into a "good girl" and sell some T-shirts.

Bayley vs. Sasha Banks

Bayley will one day get the WWE women's championship, but she's gonna have to go through Banks first. Banks is on the verge of turning heel. Bayley has been doing her best to befriend Banks, but at some point Banks is going to take out her frustrations on Bayley and set up for a big match at Mania.

Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe

Joe has finally arrived in the WWE and it looks like he is Triple H's hired gun to take out the architect. This match could be the show stealer. Rollins and Joe would probably have the best match on the card. They both work stiff and have a lot of respect for each other. Triple H will probably do something lame like appoint himself guest referee, but it won't matter. We're talking about a great match here.

John Cena vs. AJ Styles

Just because why not? These two have great matches together and how fitting would it be for Styles to get a win over Cena at Wrestlemania? Would it be for the championship? Who knows. Styles deserves to be champion because he is the best wrestler in the world. He doesn't need the title, however, to define him. He's great with or without it. Cena always seems to have good matches on the PPV stage.
