2014 : The Year In Review

For the past few years, I have been publishing a New Year's Day post where I predict things to happen within the upcoming twelve months.

Then, on the final day of the year, I look back at my forecasts to see how close I was.

Here are the guesses I made along with some thoughts.

The Super Bowl will be contested in a blizzard

Unless I meant a blizzard of points against the Denver Broncos, I was incorrect here.

Hulk Hogan will return to World Wrestling Entertainment in some capacity

I was correct. Hogan did return.

Luis Suarez will win the Golden Boot at the World Cup


Brazil will win the World Cup

Even more WRONG!

Manchester United will win the FA Cup, Liverpool will win the Premier League

I should stop with the football predictions, shouldn't I?

The Carter family will either sell TNA Wrestling or close up the promotion

I wonder how close I was here. Spike TV dropped TNA in the summer and it was touch-and-go whether TNA would get a new TV deal before the end of this year. They did eventually.

Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal

It's going to happen eventually. It just didn't happen in 2014.

Shawn Michaels will come out of retirement and wrestle Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania XXX

He didn't.

The Ultimate Warrior will be the main inductee at this year's Hall of Fame ceremony

I had this one correct.

Despite rumours at the time of publishing, Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole will not return to The X Factor UK

Simon Cowell and Chery Cole did. Dannii Minogue didn't. I'll take half credit here as the story referred to all three being brought back.

The fight of the Century will finally be booked when Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao agree to battle it out

This fight still hasn't been booked. However, the rumour is it could take place in 2015. I didn't get it right, though!

Finland will win gold for ice hockey at the Winter Olympics

Nope, it was Canada.

Michelle Keegan will participate in I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here


The WWE Network will get off to a patchy start with complaints of streaming issues during WrestleMania XXX. By SummerSlam, these issues will not be as prominent.

More right than wrong here.

Luis Suarez will leave Liverpool in the summer and head over to Real Madrid or PSG

Damn! I should have added Barcelona to the list.

Danny Dyer's Eastenders run will come to an end

Incorrect. He appears to be doing okay.

WWE's reality show, Total Divas, will get cancelled

Maybe next year.

Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker will main event WrestleMania XXX

Well, it took place at WrestleMania XXX. It wasn't the last match on the card, though.

Cardiff City will be relegated from the Premier League

This did happen.
