Once again, there is a pay per view tonight so let’s try to guess the winners. As always, I guess who I think will win, not who I want to win. This is based off of where I think WWE stories are going and what scenario makes the most sense to continue that plan.
25 man battle royal featuring wrestlers from Raw and Smackdown.
No one other than Sami Zayn has been announced for this match. As the Andre the Giant battle royal has taught us, winning the battle royal doesn’t really matter or give a push to the winner. Based off of who is not in a match tonight and would be available for this I’m going to guess… Omos is the easy answer. Crazy answer is Veer debuts and wins this.
Damian Priest (US champion) vs Shinsuke Nakamura (Intercontinental champion).
Shinsuke just got pinned a couple weeks ago in a tag match, so clearly WWE has faith in him. Priest is still being built up and a win over Nakamura would be a good way to continue that. Winner: Damian Priest.
RK-Bro (Raw tag team champions) vs The Usos (Smackdown tag team champions).
With this match, Randy Orton has had more pay per view matches than anyone else and coincidentally if he wrestles on Raw tomorrow he will have the Raw record as well. The Usos are tied to Roman Reigns. I think the Usos win through some shady means and RK-Bro has a rematch on Raw so Randy can have a match. Winners: The Usos.
Big E (Raw World champion) vs Roman Reigns (Smackdown World champion).
No winner. I don’t see either man getting pinned because that won’t work out well for either brand looking strong. The Usos get involved. RK-Bro comes out to even the odds. Maybe King Woods too.
Becky Lynch (Raw Women’s champion) vs Charlotte Flair (Smackdown World champion).
My friend Matt said he thinks they’re setting up another Survivor Series screw job here and I agree. Especially with the paid off referee from this past Smackdown. That referee counts Charlotte as the winner. Becky loses but loses none of her heat and can say it didn’t count. Winner: Charlotte Flair.
Team Raw (Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Carmella, and Queen Zelina) vs. Team SmackDown (Sasha Banks, Shayna Baszler, Shotzi, Natalya, and Toni Storm).
This comes down to Bianca and Liv as the survivors and Team Raw wins. They’re both getting pushed in the Raw women’s title picture. None of the other women are being pushed to that level. Sasha and Shotzi will get each other eliminated, protecting their heat. Winner: Team Raw.
Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, and Austin Theroy vs Team Smackdown (Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, King Woods, Happy Corbin, and Sheamus.
That Raw side is just flat out more stacked. Smackdown gets screwed over all the time in matches like this. Seth Rollins is the lone survivor for Team Raw and he brings this up for the next few months as he pursues the World title.
Alright, those are all of the matches currently announced. Who do you think will win tonight? I’ll turn on the TV by 7 to find out how right I am with these predictions.
