Our 2015 Predictions!

Editors note: Last year, Jan and I combined our predictions into one amalgamated column.  This year, we’re going to present it a little bit differently.  This year, Tyler, Jan and I have come up with our own separate predictions (five each), and we will examine them again this time next year.  So, without further ado, here’s how we, the Chinlock.com writing staff foresee the 2015 year of professional wrestling.
