World Wrestling Entertainment had a shaky 2015. The company was in the news because television ratings for Raw plummeted during the National Football League regular season. Injuries impacted numerous mainstays of the WWE roster, a roster that was already lacking depth before the likes of Seth Rollins and Randy Orton were sidelined. The company also did itself few favors, repeatedly producing shows that were boring and even missable for those who could not be bothered to dedicate multiple hours to the product. One can only imagine how poorly things would have gone for the WWE if the company did not have the NXT brand carrying the ball throughout the year.
There are plenty of lazy WWE predictions one could make for 2016. One would not be worthy of receiving any praise for correctly predicting that The Undertaker will show up on WWE television leading up to WrestleMania. Far too often, fans and those who cover the WWE are overly concerned with being wrong when coming up with predictions for an upcoming year. Where is the fun in that? Some of the WWE predictions for 2016 that are included in this piece may seem, on paper, to be wild and out there, but every one of them could prove to be hits before January 2017 rolls around.

2 WWE Will Buy Ring of Honor
1 John Cena Will Break Ric Flair's World Championship Record
Those of you who are not fond of the leader of the CeNation need to brace for this happening. In fact, it would probably be better for everybody involved if John Cena just notched the two championship reigns needed to break Ric Flair's record in 2016 so that it would be over and done, and then everybody could move on. WWE.com has already hinted at Cena matching Flair's mark. There is no reason to believe that Cena will be walking away from the WWE for good anytime soon. The WWE needs to rip the bandage off and give Cena the honor that will be bestowed upon him. Cena's time is now in 2016.
