    WWE Great Balls of Fire 2017 Preview and Predictions

    Yep.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TomBlargh and @OrinAnne@TimWelcomed refuses to be involved in this post because he didn’t want to sully his good reputation by writing “balls” a lot.

    Neville vs. Akira Tozawa for the Cruiserweight Championship on the kick off

    Joey:

    Neville is still the best thing in the cruiserweight division and there’s no way they can take the title off him now. The Tozawa story with the Titus Worldwide Brand is great stuff. I love Titus playing the LaVar Ball of the cruiserweight division. Tozawa/Neville is one of the better cruiserweight bouts we’ve yet to see, so this should be fun! I expect Neville to retain as he’s probably not losing until Kalisto joins the division.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Neville wins

    Tom:

    I’m not very interested in this show at all so I’m just going to get my wife @Sydneyb79 to help with some fantastic predictions. Take it away, Sydney!

    Sydney: “Well we like Neville… who the fuck is the second guy? I’m going to Google him. *gets her laptop* Akira… Tozawa. Oh, okay. Well, he has some fun shorts in his Wikipedia profile picture so that’s why he gets my vote.”

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Tozawa wins.

    Orin:

    Is Akira “Titus Worldwide” Tozawa on the Neville Level? Will Titus O’Neal’s newest recruit to the Titus Brand have what it takes to dethrone the King of the Cruiserweights? No matter what happens, one thing is for sure: these two Cruserweight Superstars are sure to show the world what their balls are made of. I can’t wait to find out what happens tonight on WWE’s Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view, presented by Rocket League.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: A dream match for the ages.

    Enzo Amore vs. Big Cass

    Joey:

    Big Cass beating the hell out of Enzo Amore is a lovely thing to witness. Their segments against each other still feel odd. Hopefully the match starts to set them apart and get the story going. Enzo did a great job on Raw this week. Good for him but hopefully Cass throws his ass off the stage.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Cass wins

    Tom:

    Sydney: “That’s hard. Um. They’re both from Queens, right? (Me: “No, Enzo is from New Jersey.”) Okay, so fuck Enzo. It’s Big Cass.”

    Interest Level: 8/10 because he’s representing Queens.
    Prediction: Big Cass wins.

    Orin:

    Mama Mia! Enzo’s balls are sure to be full of a spicy marinara, but I’m not sure that he has what it takes to pull out a big win tonight on the award winning WWE network. I can’t wait to witness this emotional confrontation between the self-proclaimed The Realest Guys in the Room. When the dust clears, who will come out on top? There’s only one way to find out and that’s by tuning in on your internet-enabled device LIVE tonight.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: A LIVE matchup brought to you by Rocket League.

    WWE Extreme Rules 2017 Preview and Predictions

    Let’s get extreme.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed@TomBlargh and @OrinAnne.

    Rich Swann and Sasha Banks vs. Noam Dar and Alicia Fox on the kick-off show

    Joey:

    Sasha Banks being involved in a cruiserweight feud is a good idea for the division. Hopefully it leads to more interaction between the normal wrestlers and the cruiserweights instead of pretending they are in different worlds. Noam Dar is probably my least favorite cruiserweight (sorry not sorry) but there’s a lot charm in the act here with Alicia Fox. The match will probably be one of the more entertaining ones on the show.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Sasha Banks and Rich Swann win.

    Tim:

    I am still incredibly bored by everything on Raw. There are a couple of things on Smackdown that really grab me. NXT is a super enjoyable show to me right now. Raw? It’s not what I am looking for at this juncture. Anyway, while I was trying to come up with what to say I did this.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Banks and Swann win.

    Tom:

    I for one am absolutely delighted to see Alicia Fox make her startling return to a PPV, even if it is on the preshow. She had a rough couple of years on Total Divas, given that she was chiefly featured as either Paige or Rosa Mendes’ friend, but now she’s “the richest prize on 205 Live” and she’s back on top.

    I enjoy her and Noam Dar as an odd couple and the idea of seeing Sasha Banks in a mixed tag match with Rich Swann as her partner is such a weird shift from everything else she’s done on the main roster that I’m fairly into this. I’ll take weird over boring any day of the week!

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Rich Swann and Sasha Banks win.

    Orin:

    To be honest, this is my most anticipated match of the evening. Alicia Fox and Noam Dar are a charmingly kooky pairing and Sasha genuinely looks like she’s been having a great time doing little dances with Rich Swann. Alicia is wonderful no matter what she does and, in my opinion, Noam has done an excellent job playing the weasely little greaseball. He doesn’t get a ton of credit for it, but he’s really put 110% into this silly, never-ending storyline. He’s great with jokey facial expressions and seems naturally gifted at looking like a horned up rat. I love it.

    Interest Level: 9.5/10
    Prediction: Sasha and Swann take it.

    Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries in a Submission match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    I love King Neville but this feud has to end as soon as possible. They have done good work together long enough. There just comes a time where you have enough of it. I can see this match going either way but I badly hope Neville wins.

    Potential opponents for Neville if he wins: Kalisto, Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, Mustafa Ali, Akira Tozawa

    Potential opponents for Aries if he wins: TJP, Gulak, Nese, Dar.

    Exactly. Go King!

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Neville wins.

    Tim:

    WHY IS THIS STILL GOING ON? They’ve thrown in TJP for whatever reason and it just will not stop. I enjoy these two when they wrestle each other but I GET IT. PLEASE LET IT END.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Austin Aries wins.

    Tom:

    It doesn’t get more extreme than a submission match! Somewhat boring stip aside, Neville is still just about the best guy in WWE right now in a lot of ways but I’m ready for his feud with Aries to be over. I trust them to have a good match and do something interesting, but I just can’t get invested in a feud where Aries is meant to be the guy I care about.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Neville wins.

    Orin:

    Ehh. It’s a bummer to not be excited about a Neville match, but here we are. I don’t really care about this, although both him and AA are obviously more than capable of putting on a good one. Instead of this, they should just do a backstage segment with Neville tweeting out all caps insults about Aries’ plant-based diet book.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Aries wins. Continue reading

    WWE Payback 2017 Preview and Predictions

    Still not the Mel Gibson movie.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson on the kickoff show

    Joey:

    Please have someone throw Enzo Amore off the stage already. PLEASE!

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Gallows and Anderson win.

    Tim:

    My interest in WWE is at the lowest point it’s been in years and Raw is the brand I am most disinterested in. I’m hoping things will straighten out on each brand after Payback but I have some worries. NXT has been surprisingly good the past three weeks. Oh, this match? I have nothing. No thanks.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Enzo and Cass win.

    Tom:

    I can’t think of anything to say about this. Nothing at all.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Okay.

    Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    Neville and Austin Aries had a pretty good showcase in the windy WrestleMania pre-show match. I imagine this one will be better since the majority of fans will already be in their seats. Neville and Aries are really the only guys that have gotten over in the cruiserweight division. I’m expecting Aries to win here so they can continue the feud for another month.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Austin Aries wins.

    Tim:

    I am looking forward to this. Aries and Neville are a great match-up and the two biggest parts of the Cruiserweight division right now. I think they can pull off something better than the fun bout they had at Wrestlemania. I do hope Aries slips on his banana at some point but I have a feeling it won’t happen this time as he is fixing to be the champion.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Austin Aries wins.

    Tom:

    I disagree with Joey’s notion that Aries and Neville are the only two to have gotten over in the Cruiserweight Division; Neville has been amazing in his new role, but I feel like Aries is still kind of riding the hype over being a former indies star, as opposed to any of his WWE performances. Not that he’s been bad, I just don’t feel like interest levels or fan investment have increased for him. Also, I think Jack Gallagher has been a much bigger deal in terms of breaking out as someone people are interested in seeing (or at least him doing silly umbrella things), though he’s hamstrung by the division still feeling like a throwaway, time-filler thing.

    Anyway, match should be good but they should have high-powered fans pointed at the ring to make Neville’s hair flow beautifully like it did at ‘Mania.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Neville wins. Continue reading
