    WWE Extreme Rules 2016 Preview and Predictions

    Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler in a No DQ Match on the kickoff show

    Joey:

    Poor Breakfast. There is basically no chemistry between these two and they have yet to have a noteworthy match. Hopefully the No DQ stipulation helps add to it and Corbin gets the final win in their series. I don’t have much hope for it being anything special and they will not be able to live up to last month’s legendary Ryback vs. Kalisto kickoff match.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Baron Corbin wins.

    Tim:

    This feud has been really forgettable so Corbin has that going for him at least. In a couple of months no one will remember any of this. Corbin definitely needs the win. He needs to work with someone better than Ziggler to get going. He can look good in the right scenarios. Lets just get it over with. I think I just decided to fix me an adult beverage for this show.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: “Big Breakfast” Baron Corbin wins.

    Tom:

    Fucking Ziggler, the debut killer. Just let him get squashed by Breakfast so we can move on with our lives!

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: “The Big Breakfast” gets the big win.

    The Usos vs. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows in a Tornado Tag Match

    Joey:

    The hatred towards Roman Reigns has carried over to the Usos and it’s wonderful. This ensures fans will actually care about their tag matches now and I think this could be a sleeper good match. It will likely open the show to set the tone for the main event. I haven’t enjoyed their tag matches on television much but it was always meant to culminate in a big AJ Styles/Reigns brawl. This time should see a real winner and a legitimate match.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows win.

    Tim:

    When I was little I used to want every tag match to be a tornado tag. I’m pretty excited to see one here. This is a tag match with an actual story and two teams that can be entertaining. The Clubb (I think it needs two b’s so I will spell it with two b’s) should get the win here. This has everything it needs to be a match of the night contender but I have a feeling things might fall apart. Hopefully I’m wrong! Either way I am very interested in this match.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows of The Clubb wins

    Tom:

    Man, I’m pretty into tornado tags (or at least I was in WWF No Mercy for the N64), so this is something I can get behind. Gallows and Anderson have had a bit of a strange debut so far, right? They’ve added an interesting edge to the AJ and Roman feud but it’s hard to consider them as a separate entity that has matches which don’t involve AJ. Anyway, I think this could be a pretty decent time.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Anderson and Gallows win.
