    Apollo Crews vs. Elias Samson

    Joey:

    I have no idea how Elias Samson made the card but I’m glad Apollo Crews gets a spot on the huge show. My assumption is Crews wins in under 5 minutes and shows off that beautiful smile.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews wins.

    Tim:

    I’m excited that Apollo Crews is on the show but I have to say that I am not on board with The Drifter. Crazy, I know. Elias Samson is hardly even one-dimensional. He shows no promise at this time. He barely even exists. Hopefully he’s been put into the spotlight lately to make his defeat at the hands of Crews feel somewhat meaningful. I’m just trying to make sense of him.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews wins.

    Tom:

    I feel bad for Apollo Crews, he seemed to be getting a bit of momentum for a while and now he’s stuck drifting around. “DRIFTING AROUND”! DRIFTING! Because Elias Samson is The Drifter! Okay, that’s it.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Crewsy wins.

    Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin

    Joey:

    Baron Corbin beating the shit out of Austin Aries is a true dream match. Aries is such an asshole but he’s definitely talented so the match should see an interesting clash with Corbin improving and at his best lately. I think they will have a very good match together but we need Corbin to drop some banter and destroying Aries at the end for optimal results.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Baron Corbin wins.

    Tim:

    I cannot stand Austin Aries but I am curious to see him compete in the WWE environment, especially against the likes of Baron Corbin. I’m not really sure if I genuinely like him or if he’s just a good laugh for me but I think this match could help me understand these strange feelings I have towards The Lone Wolf. The Big Breakfast. Baron Corbin.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Austin Aries wins.

    Tom:

    I’m so excited for this. I remember Austin Aries being fun to watch for a while, but years of TNA have made it impossible to care about him and he seems like a genuinely poor human being. Contrarily, Baron Corbin is perhaps the BEST human being! I can’t wait to see him kick Aries about a bit, hopefully only pausing to tell him to go back to Shit-kara.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Baron Corbin wins.

    The Revival vs. Enzo and Big Cass for the NXT Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    I have to say I have very little interest in this. Enzo and Big Cass have to be on the main roster soon and The Revival are aggressively dull. The idea of a NXT showcase match on a main roster show is great but this seems like a poor choice. Hopefully the crowd is into Enzo and Big Cass as that will desperately be needed for the match to work considering the opponents.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Dawson and Dasher win.

    Tim:

    Dasher and Dawson are a bore. This match is whatever to me. I don’t care for Enzo and Cass taking a loss on a main roster show that is being broadcast but they did the same with Kevin Owens dropping his NXT belt at Beast In The East during his transition to the main roster. Time moves on and it won’t matter too much in the end… I guess. Enzo and Cass are amazing together and hopefully they’ll get that call-up soon.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Dashon and Dawser win.

    Tom:

    I don’t really care for Dash and Dawson at all as wrestlers and I find them super hokey, just as I do every wrestler who claims to be “old school” in such a pandering way. #HardHitsNoFlips! #MemphisHeat! #ArnAndTully!

    Contrarily, I am very much in love with Enzo and Cass but they seem to have one foot out the door of NXT so I’m not sure what’s going on here. I wish they’d gotten the belts back in Brooklyn, oh well! Anyway, I’m still moderately excited for this because hearing Enzo and Cass get an insane reaction in front of a bigger crowd is one of my favourite things about wrestling right now, so I really hope that happens.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: #QTMarshall
