Ladders and dream matches.
The Lucha Dragons vs. The Dudley Boyz on the kick off show
The Golden Truth vs. Breezedango on the kick off show
Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
These two have the most boring matches and it’s still going on for some reason. Dolph Ziggler is the most aggressively uninteresting personality in the business today. Baron Corbin is extremely lucky the brand split is coming or he would be in trouble. I’d love to not meet anyone out there in the world excited to watch this one.
Interest Level: 0/10
Prediction: Ron Swanson’s favorite wrestler wins.
Are we on the third month of this now? Is that it? It feels like it’s been going on for years. “The Big Breakfast” Baron Corbin had a promising main roster debut at Wrestlemania by winning the prestigious Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Okay, maybe that wasn’t a huge deal but it showed that maybe they wanted to get behind him immediately. Instead they throw him to the black hole of irrelevance known as Dolph Ziggler and decide to not let it ever end. Get this over with please!
Interest Level: BIG FAT ZERO/10
Prediction: Baron Corbin wins and can hopefully rebound from this huge mistake.
FUCKING ZIGGLER MAN. Hopefully Breakfast kicks his ballbag literally off and yells “YOU GOT SWERVED… BITCH” so we can put this to rest while also kicking off a fantastic new season of the WWE Network’s hit hidden camera show.
Interest Level: 2/10
Prediction: Corbs finally escapes the Ziggler black hole to do something interesting on the main roster.
Sheamus vs. Apollo Crews
I am looking forward to this!!! God bless the good people that make Breaking Ground and the not so great people that make Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. Apollo Crews may be my favorite person featured on Breaking Ground and I love watching him wrestle. Sheamus has a dull presence but he’s always pretty good in the ring. I think this is the best spot for him on the card but how about WWE keeping him off TV and making him work the dark match during the weekend of his #1 hit movie appearance?
The match WILL deliver. I will be pleasantly surprised if Apollo gets the win but I think Sheamus is the victor here.
Interest Level: 9/10
Prediction: Sheamus wins.
This match should be fine, I guess. It seems like Crews got thrown on to the main roster without much of a plan so this is way better than him fading to the background. He needs a good showing because that unfortunate Jericho match still comes to mind when I think of him post-NXT and I know he’s better than that. Sheamus is a good hand when it comes to ring work so this should do the trick. I figure Sheamus will win but hopefully they can get Crews a big win sometime soon.
Interest Level: 5/10
Prediction: Sheamus wins.
Weird. So weird. I feel very bad for old Crewsy, his main roster debut felt rushed and it hasn’t really done him any favours. That one match with Jericho was absolutely hideous and even though a feud with WWE’s newest crossover star Sheamus has some potential, it still feels like an uphill battle.
Speaking of Sheamus, he was fairly excellent in that new Turtles film, and by “excellent”, I don’t mean he was good at acting or anything like that but it was always fun and surreal to see him onscreen and sometimes that’s enough.
Interest Level: 4/10
Prediction: Crewsy wins but gets beaten up a bit after.
