What in the hell? Didn’t we just do this last week? Yes we did. But WWE is going to experiment with two pay per views one week apart and see how things go. I was unexcited about this whole concept, but dammit, one return is all it takes. I am at least curious for the main event. Not that there was much time to build the show. I’ve been surprised before, and maybe I will again.
Now to guess who I think will win each match and why. You’ve been here before. You know how this works.
Bayley and Sasha Banks (WWF womens tag team champions) vs Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
I think this is a perfect opportunity to move things forward. Build up Shayna. Build towards Shayna vs. Nia. Pull the trigger on Sasha vs. Bayley. A title change is needed here to move the plot forward.
Winners and new champions: Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Apollo Crews (US champion) vs. Bobby Lashley (with MVP and Shelton Benjamin).
If Bobby is going to be in a faction and built up, he needs the win here. I could see Apollo joining the Hurt Business later too. If you cant beat them, join them idea.
Winner and new champion: Bobby Lashley.
Ketih Lee vs. Randy Orton.
No way Keith Lee loses his first main roster match. Even a match of this caliber.
Winner: Keith Lee.
Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins and Murphy.
I’m impressed with Dominik, sure, but I just don’t care. This story has gotten so ridiculous. But there’s potential for this to be a surprise great match. With Aliester turning heel I’m not sure what other twists are left for this story. I think it’s time for the faces to win.
Winners: The Mysterio family.
Matt Riddle vs. King Corbin.
As my Keith Lee logic would say, Riddle should win here. But I think WWE will hit Riddle with a bunch of losses to see how he reacts then build him back up. And they’ve always been high on Corbin.
Winner: King Corbin.
Big E vs. Sheamus.
Please build up Big E. Every fan and every bit of logic says it’s time to start building him here. Have him win the Rumble. Have him main event Mania. It needs to start now.
Winner: Big E.
The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan) vs. The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce) (Pre Show).
Riott Squad just got back together and I’m really predicting IIconics are split up so Peyton can get a singles push.
Winners: Riott Squad.
“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt (Smackdown/Universal champion) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman. No Holds Barred match.
This was a nothing story until Roman returned last Sunday. It still wasn’t anything until the contract signing on Smackdown. Roman is now a Paul Heyman guy. I am all for heel Roman. Take everything Paul did for Brock Lesnar and put that energy towards Roman. I can’t wait. Have him destroy everything from now until WrestleMania. Then have a big guy who needs that push and win defeat him. Someone like Big E.
Winner and new champion: Roman Reigns.
