It’s time for another pay per view! As with all previous ones, I try to guess who will win and who will lose. Not based off of my own desires, but where I think the stories are going. Only six announced matches, I don’t think any are on the pre show. Also, I really don’t know if I’ll be watching this show live. There is a ton going on at home right now. Stay tuned to tomorrow’s podcast to hear all about it! On to the matches.
Bobby Lashley (Raw world champion) vs Drew McIntyre vs Braun Strowman.
Roman Reigns (Smackdown world champion) vs Cesaro.
I’m going to put these two together because I have the same feeling on both. There is no reason to take the titles off of either of these two men yet. Lashley clawed to reach this position for what 15 years? Roman is absolutely holding his title until next year’s WrestleMania. Cesaro would be a good candidate to take the belt off of him then. But not tonight. Drew was a great world champion and should have that title again. Braun I’m just meh about and I feel most fans are wondering what he has to offer other than being big. I think Reigns vs Cesaro could be a sleeper of the night but there will be no title changes here.
Winners and still respective champions.
Bianca Belair (Smackdown women’s champion) vs Bayley.
Rhea Ripley (Raw women’s champion) vs Asuka vs Charlotte Flair.
Again with the same situation. There is no reason to build up both of these women and take the titles off of them a month later. I don’t see Bayley having a problem taking the loss. If Rhea loses the title she doesn’t take the pin. I could see Charlotte pinning Asuka and build up to Rhea vs Charlotte for the title. I could see that, but I don’t. Time to build up new champions that can always be in this main event spot and constantly either reign or be a threat.
Winners and still champions.
Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode (Smackdown tag team champions) vs Dominick and Rey Mysterio.
Every PPV should have a title change or a major gimmick match and here is the one and only one for this show. The father and son Mysterio team should have won the titles at WrestleMania in front of fans. This title change is a month too long, but a good story.
Winners and new champions: Dad and Dom Mysterio.
Damian Priest vs the Miz in a Lumberjack match.
Honestly, what is there to do for either man after this? Miz has been made the fool of already in this story and yet it continues. I think Miz pays off a lumberjack or pulls something sneaky with some help to get the win. Damian will be pissed and want a rematch in a steel cage or something. Something to keep any outside interference out.
Winner: the Miz.
So who do you think will win tonight? Maybe I will play it in the background while doing dishes and other things. But it is not a PPV worthy of putting a VHS in front of the cable clock.
