    Survivor Series 2016 Preview and Predictions

    Raw vs. Smackdown

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

    The Miz vs. Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship

    Joey:

    I was looking forward to Sami Zayn kicking Dolph Ziggler’s smug fucking face off but this is the better match. Zayn being the hometown favorite against the most hated heel on the show sets up a great scenario. I definitely think Zayn is winning here and bringing the Intercontinental Championship to Raw. The potential of the two titles on the line switching shows would benefit all involve.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Sami Zayn wins.

    Tim:

    I’m down for this. These two could put on a show stealing match if given the time.  I am really just glad Sami Zayn is being used in an important way. I hope they go with Zayn winning the championship here in front of this crowd. Daniel Bryan has been talking about trading Miz to Raw a whole lot with Cesaro and Zayn being the two names he brings up the most. I doubt Smackdown gets to keep the Intercontinental Championship and gain the Cruiserweight Championship. So, I’m going to predict something off the wall here to keep things spicy even if it doesn’t quite make sense. Daniel Bryan has already made the deal to trade Miz for Zayn to Raw because he doesn’t believe Miz will win. Stephanie McMahon thinks Miz will beat Zayn and agreed to the deal. Miz will defeat Zayn, prove Bryan wrong, and take the belt to Raw.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: The Miz wins.

    Tom:

    The Toronto crowd utterly rejecting Ziggler would have been a beautiful thing to witness live, but I think Zayn/Miz might actually be the better match! Zayn is the closest thing to Daniel Bryan on the current roster, so I’m excited to see what he can do with Miz, and I’m sure the crowd will be hot for it. I don’t think Miz has become the revelation that some people think, but he’s definitely improved and he’s capable of having excellent matches with people who are better than him.

    Storyline wise, I’m expecting the result to see Miz moved to Raw, though I still think Sami will be winning the title.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Sami Zayn wins.

    The Brian Kendrick vs. Kalisto for the Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    This is another cool match that has been worth the wackiness of the brand split. The Raw vs. Smackdown matches feel somewhat important, especially the ones with something on the line. WWE needed to go with a face to be the face (HAHHAHAHAHAAH) of the division and TJ Perkins completely bombed. Kalisto could have a better shot as someone the fans are familiar with.

    Fun fact: The crowd at a MSG house show in March went fucking nuts for Kalisto. The kids are big into the LUCHA LUCHA LUCHA thing. He’s the guy.

    Anyway, something needs to change here. Smackdown getting the cruiserweight division would make up for the lack of talent depth and make it nearly must-watch.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tim:

    Kalisto can be very messy but I can’t help but enjoy him under the right circumstances. Kendrick and the Cruiserweight Division as a whole have been a huge disappointment on the main roster. Hopefully going to Smackdown and getting their own show will help put them back in the great place they were during the CWC. Raw just wasn’t working out. Kalisto will be a good encapsulation of what the division is for now.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tom:

    I’m excited for this! I enjoy Kendrick but Kalisto seems like a much better representative of the division, or at least while it’s still taking off. It’d also be nice to see Neville pulled in, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see on that. Anyway, should be a fun match and something to provide a nice break from all the multi-man business.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    WWE Summerslam 2016 Preview and Predictions

    Jon Stewart is back!

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

    summerslam-2016-banner-new

    Preshow: American Alpha, The Hype Bros and The Usos vs. The Vaudevillains, The Ascension and Breezedango

    Joey:

    I wish it was American Alpha vs. The Usos or Breezedango. I think this could be fun but who really cares?

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Good boys win.

    Tim:

    It’ll be nice to see American Alpha do some stuff, I guess. This’ll be forgettable I’m sure.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: The Uso Alpha Bros win.

    Tom:

    Aw yeah, let’s kick this off right! Tag team action! Oh yeah! Oh YEAH!!

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: American Alpha and pals win.

    Preshow: The Dudley Boyz vs. Sami Zayn and Neville

    Joey:

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Sami Zayn and Neville wins. Bubba turns on Devon.

    Tim:

    I’m going to take this time to say this whole Sami Zayn being in a thrown together tag match on the pre-show thing is incredibly lame. He’s had a great year in the ring and won his biggest match to date in my favorite match of the year so far just last month. All of that and this is where he’s at? You could’ve been creative and somehow worked into him and Owens tagging for a while instead of Jericho or something. ANYTHING. If this is what you were going to do with him why not just let Owens beat him again?

    The Dudleyz are for the trash and I don’t want to watch two great wrestlers take on boring garbage people in a pre-show match. They’ve done nothing interesting since they’ve returned to the company. I’m pissed! I’m letting the world know.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: The Dudleyz win because this is shit!

    Tom:

    Poor Sami. Poor Neville. Get them damn Dudz outta here. Hopefully Sami and Neville use the “fighting spirit” they learned in Japan to shoot on Big Bubba with some signature strong style strikes! Minoru Suzuki! MAMMA MIA!!!!!

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Sami and Big Adrian win.

    Cesaro vs. Sheamus (Match 1 in their Best of Seven series)

    Joey:

    There’s nothing wrong with either man and they have decent matches. The problem is it gets extremely repetitive and we all know this will likely culminate in nothing. I can’t say I’m overly excited but it could be good. They have to put this in the opening slot or on the pre-show while the crowd is still hot.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Sheamus wins.

    Tim:

    These two are awesome wrestlers. They really are… but Sheamus can suck the life out of me despite that. It is some sort of weird magic he has. It doesn’t help that I’ve seen them wrestle more times than I ever needed to. The story hasn’t been compelling at all. They threw in Zayn beating Sheamus for some reason. It’s just strange. We have six more of these to go. I’d rather Cesaro be doing bigger and better things at this point. It just seems like a roadblock and not a match I can be excited about despite wanting to be.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Cesaro wins.

    Tom:

    It’s hard to comprehend this being their first match in a best of seven series because it already feels like they’ve wrestled enough that there shouldn’t be too much question about who the better guy is. IT’S CESARO, LADS. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS.

    Speaking of which, it’s testament to how great Cesaro is that I have any interest in this at all!

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Cesaro wins. Continue reading

    Kalisto vs. Alberto Del Rio in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match for the United States Championship

    Joey:

    The rivalry between Kalisto and Alberto Del Rio has been met with its fair shares of ups and downs. I’m not particularly excited about this but it’s not something I plan to skip. Kalisto being champ is something new and cool so I’m hopeful of that continuing.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tim:

    I like the idea of Kalisto as champ. He fresh and I really think he has potential. This feud has just been odd though. Every match is a mixture of cool moments and really bad flubs. ADR has been pretty pathetic this go-around. This seems like the blow-off. I’m pretty happy about that. I can totally watch these two try this out one more time. There are worse ways to spend my time. How about we do Kalisto vs Neville next?

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tom:

    I can’t do it. I’m sorry. I like Kalisto and I wish they’d give him someone more interesting to scrap with because Berty D.R. is doing nothing for me right now. Best of luck to the both of them though (with the luck divided in Kalisto’s favour on an 80/20 split).

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: I’m too tired.

    The New Day appear on The Cutting Edge Peep Show

    Joey:

    This should be a humorous and interesting segment. I’m very happy this is happening instead of another random match with the Usos. My assumption is this segment is used to set up a TLC Match between The New Day, Usos and Dudz at Wrestlemania.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: TLC WM match is announced.

    Tim:

    Sure, why not? The New Day are fun to watch no matter what. The Dudleyz will have to join in though… and we’ll have to hear references about those old TLC matches again. Alright, maybe this won’t be all that fun.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Dudleyz show up and I fix some supper.

    Tom:

    Mostly, I’m hoping we get a fantastic sneak peak at Edge and Christian’s new Network show, because I have a feeling it will have shades of Swerved to it and that will be just wonderful. New Day interacting with Attitude Era stars is always a pleasure regardless though, so this should be fun (until the Dudley Boyz come out).

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: I ask Tim about his supper.

    The Dudleys vs. The Ascension vs. Mark Henry and Jack Swagger vs. Darren Young and Damien Sandow in a pre-show match for guaranteed two spots in the Royal Rumble

    Joey:

    Anyone but Bubba Ray.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Devon and motherfucking Bubba Ray wins.

    Tim:

    This seems like the most underwhelming pre-show match ever. I’m pretty apathetic towards everyone involved except those damn Dudleys. I really can’t stand them so of course they’ll win.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: The Dudley Boys win.

    Tom:

    This whole deal is kind of bullshit because I believe it’s for a “guaranteed” two spots in the Rumble, so I’m sure we’ll see some of the losers show up. I, for one, will be fucking furious if we don’t get Mark Henry show up.

    Anyway, The Dudley Boyz are winning this because fuck everything.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: The Dudley Boyz win.

    The New Day vs. The Usos for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    The irrelevance of RAW these days has made this feud come off overexposed and boring. I don’t imagine there’s a lot of excitement for the match but these guys are all extremely talented. This is their first true big match against each other and I am expecting a huge performance by both teams.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: The Usos win.

    Tim:

    The New Day have had a rough month. I’m expecting them to debut a new musical instrument. Maybe a mandolin or a recorder. The possibilities are endless. ANYWAY, this match will be fine. You can usually expect a solid performance by The Usos. The New Day will be acting wacky like they’re popular Vine stars or something. I say it nearly every month but WWE really needs to work on the tag division.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    Tom:

    Fucking Chris Jericho, man. His return and mini-feud with The New Day was absolutely dreadful and detracted from this match to the point that I forget this was even a current feud. I like both teams a good amount and think this should be fun – Usos are weird, they’re a team that I have a habit of taking for granted but they always pleasantly surprise me when they end up being pretty great. Those leggings they’re wearing are weird though.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch for the WWE Divas Championship

    Joey:

    This is one of the better WWE diva programs in quite some time. Becky Lynch is firing on all cylinders and is one of the most compelling performers on WWE television right now. Charlotte is also hitting her peak with the new character hiding some of her flaws. I’m all on board for this and I’m hoping it goes for another month.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Charlotte wins.

    Tim:

    This feud has been one of the very few good reasons to watch WWE programming this month. Becky Lynch hit a whole new level with her mic work. Charlotte being a heel  makes her so much more watchable. This feud has been the most exciting main roster Diva’s feud in a long time and it’s definitely the most interesting feud on WWE TV at the moment. They should really put the belt on Lynch but they seem pretty dedicated to Charlotte holding it. WHATEVER.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Charlotte wins.

    Tom:

    They finally figured out that having a likeable character clash with an unlikeable character might make for a compelling Divas Championship feud, as opposed to just having them all be varying shades of unpleasant! Who would have thought?!? Becky has been doing a tremendous job lately, both on the mic and in the ring, and Charlotte is MUCH more effective in a heel role. Even mad old Ric has been a decent presence! The Divas Revolution is REAL!!!! WE DID IT!!!

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Charlotte retains.

    This Or That (1/20/2016)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeyOnEarth and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    More exciting WWE signing: AJ Styles or Shinsuke Nakamura?

    Sorry, New Japan.

    aj-nak

    Joey:

    Nakamura is great but the AJ Styles signing is definitely the more exciting news here. Styles has been one of the best wrestlers in North America for the past decade and has been deserving of this opportunity for just as long. I can’t wait to see how he performs in the WWE atmosphere and want to see him face off with some of the current top stars like Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Finn Balor. All of these wrestlers are at the top of their game and Styles could have a very special run with the company.

    AJ Styles

    Tim:

    I enjoy Nakamura a great deal when he’s going all out in a match. I think he’ll try his best in the WWE system and that will be interesting to see. A lot of the magic behind Nakamura is how he is presented and I can only hope WWE understands that. I think AJ Styles is one of the best wrestlers around. I’ve always wanted to see him in WWE and they have a great roster full of fresh matches for him. While you’ll never see me buying AJ Styles merchandise I can not deny that he’s on a level all by himself right now when it comes to in-ring performances. He’s worked his way to the top of almost every promotion he’s stepped foot in. It’s going to be surreal to see him in a WWE ring.

    AJ Styles

    Tom:

    I am very excited for old AJ to finally get a go in WWE, but he seems like a slightly safer bet in terms of getting a decent run and baby, I am addicted to unpredicatibility and sweet, sweet chaos. WWE still hasn’t shown they know how to use a non-English speaker in a prominent role, so Nakamura’s signing is much more exciting to me – if there’s anyone who can overcome a language barrier through sheer charisma, it’s Nakamura but I still think it’ll be an uphill battle. DO YOUR BEST SHINSUKE MATE, INVEST IN SOME MAD OLD OUTFITS AND KEEP MAKING THOSE FACES.

    Shinsuke Nakamura

    This Or That (10/29/2015)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeyOnEarth and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s the last edition‘s results:

    Who would you rather see Undertaker wrestle at Wrestlemania 32?

    Sting – 53%, John Cena – 47%

    More promising NXT talent?

    Chad Gable – 61%, Apollo Crews – 39%

    Halloween?

    Yay – 72%, Nay – 38%

    Who will leave Survivor Series as WWE World Champion: Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns?

    Sheamus is not an acceptable answer.

    Raw_Reigns_Rollins-e1445936656540

    Joey:

    This question comes down to if you believe Dean Ambrose will turn heel on Roman Reigns. That’s the only thing that can prevent the title change. I just don’t see that happening. I don’t think Ambrose is valued enough to be put in such a position of a big match. He’s more so in the Ziggler territory. This is the show I see Reigns getting his title win. It’s a softer crowd, the story is fitting, Rollins is running out of challengers. Just seems like the timing has lined up too perfectly for it to not happen here.

    Roman Reigns

    Tim:

    Now might be the best time to do it when it comes to the story but I can see them waiting to make Reigns the champion on a bigger stage. At least one of the former Shield members needs to make a big change so Dean Ambrose turning heel and elongating Reigns’ chase for the title seems likely to me. At the moment this whole thing comes off unnatural and forced to me but here we are. Here’s to hoping they throw in some unexpected challenger for Rollins to wrestle while Ambrose and Reigns feud over who is the coolest guy in high school.

    Seth Rollins 

    Tom:

    Nice to see that we’ve all acknowledged the biggest issue as being how stale Ambrose is right now. I really, REALLY can’t stand how lame Dirty Dean is as the “unstable” face who loves cold beer and hey, where the women at?!? I’m not sure if he’ll be any more effective as a heel, but jeez, at least I’ll be supposed to hate him then.

    Also, Rollins is only just coming off a Kane feud so it’d be a real shame for his run to end now. Give the boy a couple more months so he can get that behind him and lose the title with a little dignity.

    Seth Rollins

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 Preview and Predictions

    Also known as No Mercy 2002.

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

    Cesaro, Neville and Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus, King Barrett and Rusev on the pre-show

    Joey:

    I’ll be honest and admit I tuned out when these six had their match together on Raw this week so at least it will be kinda new to me. I still can’t be too excited about it. They basically have rotating singles matches every week. I’m sure it will be fun on the pre-show. Glad to see Neville and Cesaro doing something.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cesaro, Neville and the other guy win.

    Tim:

    I’m highly displeased with the product lately. It’s been hard to watch but I DO watch it because I’m a real fan. This is a match I’ve already seen and I’m good on not seeing it again. There are a million better things Cesaro, Neville, and Rusev could be doing.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Sheamus, King Barrett, and Rusev win.

    Tom:

    This is exactly the same match from Raw. Why is this here?

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: What’s going on?

    wwe-summerslam-2015

    The Prime Time Players vs. New Day vs. Lucha Dragons vs. Los Matadores for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    We see this kind of match every Wrestlemania and it’s always a fun time. It should be improved this time with New Day being so over and Lucha Dragons likely being a fan favorite. Definitely look for New Day to get the titles back.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: New Day wins.

    Tim:

    It’ll be nice to watch The Lucha Dragons do their thing. The New Day are usually a good time. I’m not too interested in this one but it should have some good spots.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins. 

    Tom:

    I feel like there’s been so much attention taken off the tag division lately that it’s hard to be too interested in this, even though it’s likely to be pretty good! Lucha Dragons seem to have been relegated to Main Event type shows with Los Matadores, while PTP have mostly been on commentary duties. Thankfully, The New Day has been consistently great so hopefully they get the belts back.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    This Or That (8/6/2015)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Who has had more great matches in WWE?

    Brock Lesnar – 67%, Undertaker – 33%

    More unlikeable on-screen couple?

    Dolph Ziggler and Lana – 88%, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H – 12%

    Which show will be better?

    Ultima Lucha – 76%, NXT TakeOver Brooklyn – 24%

    Which is better?

    Peanut butter – 58%, Jelly – 42%

    Who needs a win more at Summerslam: Brock Lesnar or Seth Rollins?

    Summerslam.

    brock-seth

    Tim:

    I’d prefer both of these people win their matches at Summerslam but Seth Rollins can take the loss and eventually bounce back. His character needs to evolve some anyway. Being the dominant beast who beat the Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak is such a huge part of Lesnar’s character that that having The Undertaker get his win back from Brock Lesnar would be such a huge goof-up.

    I always thought the big conclusion to Lesnar’s WWE run would be a young star making his name by being the one who brought down the man who broke the streak and ran roughshod over everyone he faced afterwards. Wasting this potential moment on The Undertaker seems nearsighted and dull. The Undertaker doesn’t need the win and the match won’t be anything to talk about. You’re killing the very special momentum of one of your biggest attractions for nothing.

    Brock Lesnar

    Joey:

    While it would be damaging to Seth Rollins if he loses multiple times to John Cena and has his title reign end at Summerslam, I think Brock Lesnar needs the win more. If Rollins loses the match and the title, what really changes for him? Regardless, he will be the #1 heel in the company. If Lesnar loses, part of the magic of his rare appearances will be gone. It started when he defeated Undertaker and it would end if he loses back. Brock is the coolest thing WWE has had in years and you can’t sacrifice ruining that in this scenario.

    Brock Lesnar

    Tom:

    I’d like to play the contrarian here but Brock losing to old man Undertaker would be a colossal bummer. Seth’s run so far has already had a fair amount of nonsense so I don’t think a Cena loss is going to hurt him too badly, though obviously it’d be nice if he retains. However, if Brock loses to your dad… man, that’ll look pretty ridiculous for everyone.

    This Or That (7/30/2015)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Who do you side with in their podcast wars?

    Steve Austin – 74%, Roddy Piper – 26%

    Better WWE reality show?

    Tough Talk – 61%, Total Divas – 39%

    Better Hulk Hogan Funko Pop? (Well, this is awkward!)

    Hollywood nWo – 71%, Hulkamania – 29%

    Better Fast and the Furious star?

    Vin Diesel – 80%, Tyrese – 20%

    Who has had more great matches in WWE: Undertaker or Brock Lesnar?

    Has ‘Taker’s long run or Brock’s short run produced more great matches?

    brock-taker

    Tim:

    There are way less Undertaker matches that I like than Brock Lesnar matches. The few matches that I think are classics are on a whole other level though and I don’t think Lesnar’s best matches can even be compared to those Undertaker matches. I do think Lesnar has had more high-caliber matches though. A lot of Undertaker’s catalogue is pretty boring. When Brock wrestles it is special and almost always hits a memorable level.

    Brock Lesnar

    Joey:

    Despite Undertaker having literally hundreds of more matches, I strongly believe Brock Lesnar has had more great ones. In his first run, I recall many classics vs. Kurt Angle, The Rock, Undertaker himself, Eddie Guerrero and others. In his recent run, he probably has another 5-7 truly GREAT matches. Sure, it seems like ‘Taker would have more but really remember the style of matches he used to have before the Wrestlemania streak became a big deal in the mid 2000s and how disappointing a lot of his non-WM matches were. Give me Brock’s library over the Deadman’s.

    Brock Lesnar

    Tom:

    When I got back into wrestling, it was probably the worst time to be re-exposed to The Undertaker – it was a few months after Wrestlemania XV and his matches were mostly a chore. Also, to a 14 year old, he just seemed like an older, less interesting Kane (which seems crazy to say now, but back off trolls, Kane was GOOD AS FUCK back then).

    This continued for… god, a solid three or four years, maybe? It was only around 2001/02 that he seemed to get back into the swing of things and started having some memorable matches. Realistically though, I think all his truly great matches were from feuds with Bret and Shawn around ’97 and then the latter half of The Streak – the rest of it is predominantly shuffling around with The Great Khali and that. His great matches could be REALLY fucking great though.

    So, even though Brock is my favourite guy to watch currently and his (admittedly smaller) catalogue of matches is of a much higher overall quality, I still don’t think he’s had as many great ones as ‘Taker. Hopefully he’ll get there though! Never leave, Brock.

    The Undertaker
