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

    Joey:

    New Day returning and The Usos being great heels each helped the Smackdown tag division finally get back on track. The likely American Alpha vs. Fashion Police secondary feud should be good as well. I don’t think WWE can take the titles off The Usos just yet. They are finally clicking as heels. I do think New Day wins the belts by Summerslam, but MITB will be Day One Is H.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Usos win.

    Tim:

    I love WWE right now. It’s running on all cylinders like a finely tuned car. When it comes to The Usos what more can be said about them? They’re the best in the world hands down. The New Day have returned and are also the best in the world too. What happens when these two teams clash will undoubtedly result in a match talked about for decades to come. Needless to say, I am ecstatic about this one.

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

    Tom:

    The  Smackdown tag division has stood out to me for the past month or two because it was probably the one part of the show post-brand split that never quite caught on. I think The Usos are very good in their current roles and The New Day going away for a little while was definitely the right move, as it feels nice to see them back again.

    HOWEVER, my main concern is that The Fashion Police are not involved in this match, and I very badly need for them to stay as a prominent part of the tag scene. I will never get tired of their antics and I will always love them. Feel free to screenshot this if you think you’ll ever be able to use it against me because guess what: not gonna happen.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: The Usos win and I will love Breezango 4-ever.

    Orin:

    I’m a big fan of The Usos as disgruntled men in streetwear who may run a prison. Jimmy and Jey have been placed in charge of something called the Uso Penitentiary––some kind of correctional institution that they’re constantly inviting the New Day to visit. They love their new jobs as angry prison guards! Both teams will deliver some sassy one-liners and sick burns and The Usos will retain. Back to jail for you, New Day.

    Interest Level: /10
    Prediction: Usos win

    WWE Backlash Preview and Predictions

    Jinder Mahal is main eventing this show

    Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English on the kick-off

    Joey:

    I like Aiden English a lot and would like to see him get a genuine push. Tye Dillinger already seems like “just a guy” at this point. Aside from liking the number 10, there is not too much to him as a character. I think this match will just be a basic pre-show bout to get the fans loud with the TEN chants.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Tim:

    I enjoy the Aiden English character and I hope they continue on with it. Tye Dillinger is pretty one note as a character so hopefully they flesh him out more soon. I don’t really have any feelings towards this match and that is a big problem with a lot of main roster stuff right now.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Tom:

    I like these guys, though I worry for both of them. Dillinger is in danger of slipping into the “nice young man with almost zero discernible personality traits” role that Apollo Crews had on Smackdown for about a year, whereas Aiden English has a weird gimmick that I love but seems like it might keep him off the card more often than not. I want them both to do well! Anyway, this should be a neat little thing. It’s interesting to see English get used to being a singles guy again.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

    Joey:

    I legitimately forgot Luke Harper was still on Smackdown and he was probably my favorite thing on the show just a few months ago. Erick Rowan usually does nothing for me, but I am fond of his new bit popping balloons and laughing. Maybe we’ll see some balloons here? I want Luke to win here obviously. I just don’t see it happening. My prediction is Vince saw the Rowan balloon segment and loved it.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Erick Rowan wins.

    Tim:

    Here’s a match with a story behind it! Unfortunately, I feel like it ran its course forever ago and that Luke Harper should be on to grander things. They have yet to make me feel anything about Erick Rowan. I don’t have high hopes for the actual match either. I bet Harper even loses here!

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Erick Rowan wins.

    Tom:

    Poor Luke Harper, he just can’t get out of the Wyatts hole he’s stuck in. I always hope he’ll be allowed to move onto bigger and better things because he’s a unique performer and deserves to be showcased in more high profile matches, but he’s in a weird spot right now. I’d love to see him have a decent feud with the likes of Zayn, Owens or Nakamura, so hopefully this is a stepping stone to that.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Luke Harper wins.

    The Usos vs. Breezango for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    Hot take: I don’t care much for Breezango.

    Common take: The Usos are good as heels.

    I don’t really have any thoughts on this match aside from realizing just how weak the Smackdown tag division is until New Day arrives.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: The Usos win.

    Tim:

    The Fashion Police are a decently funny time by WWE’s standards but it’s not something that will keep my attention for long. They only stand out because the bar for humor on WWE TV is so low. I think Breeze can show signs of being a talented wrestler. The Usos heel turn made them interesting again for a little bit but I’m back to not caring about them. The tag division is in a real bad state but might as well put it on Breezango so them and The New Day can do some wacky LOL-worthy jokes when they come back and go for the titles.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Breezango win.

    Tom:

    YES. OKAY. LET’S DO THIS. I love The Fashion Police and I’ve enjoyed The Usos enormously since their heel turn. I’m very excited for this match as I think Fandango and Breeze are both very underrated as actual wrestlers who wrestle, in addition to being great characters, so I think it could be a lot of fun!

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Breezango wins.

    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

    WWE Fastlane 2017 Preview and Predictions

    It’s a Fastlane, baby, drive me crazy.

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

    Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar on the kickoff

    Joey:

    I enjoy the cruiserweights but I don’t care about this match at all. Just give us an eight man flips match for the pre-show and call it a night.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Swann and Tozawa win. A lot of people tweet “ALICIA FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX”

    Tim:

    I’m a big fan of three of these guys but I’m not expecting much from it since it’s a pre-show match. Akira Tozawa and his charisma have been a gift to the cruiserweight division. His storyline with Kendrick is the best thing in the division outside of Neville’s heel reign. Noam Dar is such a bore. I can’t believe he gets as much air time as he does. Swann still hasn’t found his spot but I’m hoping that changes one day soon. Anyway, this’ll be a nice little pre-show match.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Swann and Tozawa win.

    Tom:

    Tozawa has been so exciting in his limited time on WWE TV, to the point that I badly want him to shift out of the Cruiserweight division so he’s not just limited to wrestling the guys there. However, I can live with it for the time-being. I like all of the guys in this match to various degrees, so even though it’s a TV match, I’m sure it’ll be fine. Also, big laffs at TJP not even making kickoff shows now.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Tozawa and Swann win.

    Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax

    Joey:

    No interest in this feud. I definitely think Nia Jax wins in dominant fashion to remain strong and set up Sasha Banks’ frustration and anger for something later in the show.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Nia Jax wins. Tom tweets he’s not like most girls.

    Tim:

    This is something I just haven’t been able to connect with. Nia Jax just isn’t that great in her role. Best case scenario for this match to be anything worth seeing is Jax dominating most of it and Banks selling over the top for her in crazy ways. I would think Jax gets the win here.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Nia Jax wins.

    Tom:

    Nah.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Nia Jax wins. Continue reading

    Big Cass vs. Rusev

    Joey:

    Everyone ragged on Big Cass for the pants comment on Raw last week, but I thought he looked great on his own. Enzo Amore has become my least favorite person on Raw. Cass on his own has me interested in him again. I’m looking forward to this match. My expectations are sadly Enzo returning to help Cass in between dancing like a scumbag. Hopefully Lana throws him off the stage.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cass wins.

    Tim:

    The build has been horrendous but maybe the match will make up for the weeks of making me want to change the channel. I like Big Cass a lot even though some of his promo work is cheesy. He’s a real asset to the roster. He stands out and is an entertaining tall guy in the ring. He and Rusev are both inconsistent but hopefully they have some chemistry. I’m pretty curious to see how they work together. I’d bet Big Cass gets the win here with help from his pal, horny Scrappy Doo. Just remember: Rusev is the good guy as usual.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Big Cass wins.

    Tom:

    IT’S A ROADBLOCK, BABY, DRIVE ME CRAZY. I think this might be okay. The storyline’s been trash but Rusev is still fairly fun and I like seeing Big Cass be a tall man doing tall man things. Big boots and so on.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Big Cass wins.

    Rich Swann vs. The Brian Kendrick vs. TJ Perkins for the Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    I enjoyed 205 Live a lot this week. The triple threat match is the most I’ve look forward to a cruiserweight match since the move to the main roster. Rich Swann is wonderful and definitely the right choice to be champion. Hopefully this is the final PPV title shot for Kendrick or Perkins for a while with someone new getting an opportunity. Unfortunately the depth is pretty weak. Maybe Tajiri returns to spit mist in TJP’s sexist eyes.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Rich Swann wins.

    Tim:

    I still haven’t been grabbed by the Cruiserweights but this being a three way gives me hope for it to be more intriguing than past Cruiserweight matches. I think they did a little better with the build than they have for previous Cruiserweight title matches but they still have a long ways to go. Rich Swann is awesome. I’m glad he’s the champion and I think that will continue for awhile longer. Can I see Tozawa now?

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Rich Swann wins.

    Tom:

    I still like Kendrick a lot but TJP continues to do nothing for me and I’d rather Swann have someone fresh to scrap with. Is Gran Metallik not available? Are they saving him for something? What about Tozawa or Tajiri? I don’t know if rationing the fun guys out is their plan, but man, the division could really use some other guys being showcased.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Rich Swann wins.

    Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado and Sin Cara vs. Tony Nese, Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari on the kick off show

    Joey:

    The cruiserweight division has been okay. Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann have been the most exciting stars. Tony Nese, Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari feel like the jobber unit of the division. Cedric’s team is pretty cool here. Sin Cara and Lince Dorado looked good in that tag match a few weeks ago. Good choice for a pre-show match, but I wish Swann was involved.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Team Cedric wins.

    Tim:

    For a division that gets different ring ropes every time they wrestle and came fresh off one of the best tournaments I’ve ever seen, the Cruiserweight Division has been pretty underwhelming. Cedric Alexander is a top-tier wrestler so I’m always excited to see him do his thing. Tony Nese looks alright once every six months or so. Gulak can either be really boring or really good but he will always wear that garbage jacket to the ring, so I don’t know what to think. This should be a fun pre-show match but we’ll just have to see. There have been numerous cruiserweight matches on Raw that I would have put money on being good beforehand only to lose that money and my big ass boat.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Alexander and The Lucha Cats win and then form a band.

    Tom:

    I made a face when I saw this match and I’m not sure why! Like, I GUESS this is why we have the cruiserweight lads, to have fun, meaningless matches with flips and Drew Gulak’s terrible jacket? I just wish we could do a little better. Also, where’s Rich Swann? People actually seem to like him.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cedric and pals win.

    Bayley vs. Dana Brooke

    Joey:

    Dana Brooke may very well be the worst wrestler in the world but in a good way. Bayley clearly needs the win here. The Survivor Series team match will help prolong her eventual build to the WrestleMania title shot against Sasha Banks and/or Charlotte.

    Interest Level: 3/10 (Sorry, Bayley.)
    Prediction: Bayley wins.

    Tim:

    I get a big kick out of watching Dana Brooke do anything but I’d rather watch Bayley wrestle anyone else on a big event. We like to have fun here but I prefer good matches to having a laugh. Heck, I like good matches that make me laugh a lot too but those don’t happen often at all. Bayley has to go over here. It has been a rough month for everyone on Raw but especially Bayley. She took a clean L from Brooke when she messed up the cheating finish and then got “boring” chants thrown at the segment she was in the next week. That is wild stuff to happen to one of the best and none of it should really fall on her shoulders. Hopefully she gets into a good feud next month. This one was a huge miscalculation.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Bayley wins.

    Tom:

    HELL YEAH, DANA BROOKE. I wish Dana had the “I’m not like most girls” theme song, except it should be expanded to be “I’m not like most people” because I don’t think there’s anyone else on the planet like Brookesy. Almost everything she does makes me laugh and I am excited to see what she does.

    P.S. Yes, I feel bad for Bayley too, but at least we get to see Dana being crazy.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Bayley wins.

    Nia Jax vs. Alicia Fox on the kickoff show

    Joey:

    Nia Jax squashing local talents really helped introduce her on Raw. The segment with her throwing around Alicia Fox a few weeks ago was quite entertaining. Nothing but love for Foxy who judged a pizza eating contest with Big Show in Brooklyn last month. Respect was earned.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Nia Jax wins.

    Tim:

    I’ve never really found Nia Jax appealing until she did the beatdown on Alicia Fox. Fox, who has been supremely underutilized for most of her career, really sold Jax as a beast. I want more of that here but I’m expecting it will just be a boring pre-show match.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Nia Jax

    Tom:

    The stipulation should be Nia Jax gets Foxy’s place on Total Divas if she wins. I have no other thoughts.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Total Divas returns Fall 2016.

    TJ Perkins vs. The Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    TJ Perkins is a real goof, but he has been unbelievable in the ring over the past few months. The Brian Kendrick added more emotion to the Cruiserweight Classic than anyone else. This was the right match to put on the PPV. I’m rooting for Kendrick but TJP is definitely pulling off the win to start a credible reign.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: TJ Perkins wins.

    Tim:

    I was at work the other day and the janitor was cleaning up near me. I looked at him as he was throwing a Capri Sun pouch away and said “you should throw TJP away while you’re at it.” He didn’t know what I was talking about and seemed kind of scared but if he was a wrestling fan he would have died laughing or at least smirked at me knowingly. TJP has always been pretty good in the ring and seems to be rolling at a whole new pace now. Kendrick was my favorite character in the CWC and brought that emotional weight to all of his matches in the tournament. That run pretty much exemplified what I want from wrestling. TJP is most definitely winning here (as he should) but I’ll be rooting for Kendrick. This is an exciting one.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: TJ Perkins wins.

    Tom:

    I don’t like really like TJP as a person or a wrestler! I know everyone seems very high on him this year, but he just doesn’t really do much for me on any level. However, Brian Kendrick is fantastic and I look forward to him slapping old TJ around for a while. I’m even going to predict that Kendrick wins, because I love being set up for disappointment!

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Brian Kendrick wins.

    Rusev vs. Zack Ryder for the United States Championship

    Joey:

    Noted Donald Trump supporter Zack Ryder is trying to make wrestling great again by sending Bulgarian superstar Rusev behind a wall. Classic WWE storytelling. Hopefully Rusev beats Ryder so badly he has to team with a meathead that jumps up and down like a complete goof for the rest of his career.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Rusev wins.

    Tim:

    The story has been boring and actually made Ryder look worse than he already did a few times. Rusev is great so hopefully after this they put him in a more interesting feud. Any bit of interest I have in this match stems from the hope that Rusev yells some funny things during it.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Rusev wins.

    Tom:

    I feel like I’ve already seen everything I need to from these two. There’s something kind of sweet about Ryder getting another chance to succeed, but it’s a good five years too late and he just isn’t particularly interesting to watch. SOZ ZACK MATE, ALSO SOZ TO ZACK’S DAD, ALSO SOZ TO ALL THE FANTASTIC PEOPLE OF LONG ISLAND.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Rusev wins.

    The Miz vs. Darren Young for the Intercontinental Championship

    Joey:

    As great as Miz has been and as wonderful as Darren Young can be, I hope this turns into a verbal debate between Maryse and Bob Backlund. The Miz deserves a longer reign with the Intercontinental Championship. Let’s be honest – this Darren Young gimmick is ending in a month or two.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: The Miz wins.

    Tim:

    The Darren Young gimmick isn’t working for me and I don’t think it will work for many in the long-term. Backlund can be funny at times but that’s about as far as it goes for me. The Miz should be Intercontinental Champ for a good while. He’s perfect for where he is and they should really let it be for a while more. I’m not so interested in the actual match between these two. Actually, I’m not interested at all.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: The Miz wins.

    Tom:

    I’ve enjoyed the Darren Young / Bob Backlund partnership a lot more since Backlund has been allowed to be his spontaneous, weird self on TV – he’s really only enjoyable when he seems to be about three syllables away from saying something truly insane and awful, which I sincerely hope happens in this match! Young isn’t much as a wrestler, but I like his theme song a good bit so that’s something.

    Miz and Maryse are both good stuff, but Miz is always better when he’s in the ring with someone markedly better than him – that sounds like I’m being unkind or just stating the obvious, but he’s always been better at raising his own game, rather than someone else’s. Anyway, another one I’m not particularly looking forward to, but I won’t be issuing any sorries this time.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: The Miz wins.

    Kalisto vs. Ryback for the United States Championship on the kickoff show

    Joey:

    The WrestleMania pre-show match between these two was good but the lack of a crowd hurt it. I think WWE is intentionally putting Ryback on every pre-show for the rest of the year after he made public comments threatening retirement if it doesn’t change. The match should be good but it’s not anything worth going out of your way to get the show on early.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tim:

    Oh! Sorry, I was reminiscing about that time John Cena made the United States Championship feel important. I’m not the biggest Ryback fan but I do think he has potential to be an entertaining character. Kalisto can be hit or miss but he’s mostly fun to watch. They’re just not being booked to be cared for. Ryback is already hard to care for as it is so them relegating these two to this feud that barely exists sucks. It sucks that WWE creative sucks but what can we do?

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins

    Tom:

    Last month, I was onboard with Joey as far as giving this a chance. Now though? Naw. Naw son. I don’t dislike either guy but I have zero interest in seeing them wrestle again, unless it’s in some kind of match with all sorts of mad stipulations.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Dolph Ziggler vs. “The Big Breakfast” Baron Corbin

    Joey:

    WWE has a tendency to go with “Even Stevens bullshit booking” in the words of Brad Ward so I am terrified of Dolph Ziggler winning here to ruin Baron Corbin’s momentum. Ziggler doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things so they can’t possibly screw over Corbin. The chemistry between these two doesn’t appear to exist and I’m not excited at all for the actual match unless Big Banter lives up to his name.

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

    Tim:

    Ziggler’s ridiculous selling will make Baron Corbin look good but I see Ziggler coming out on the winning end this time and then a rematch happening next month where Corbin gets the win. I can’t say I am excited about any of this. There’s stuff I like about “The Big Breakfast” Baron Corbin but his wrestling isn’t really apart of that. His finisher is good! Ziggler could retire to The Comedy Toilet tomorrow and I wouldn’t mind.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Dolph Ziggler wins

    Tom:

    Ziggler has seemed to be the go-to guy as far as making an NXT guy’s debut as underwhelming as possible (big shout out to my main man Tyler Breeze), so hopefully this is the first and last PPV match between these two. I really hope this isn’t much more than a squash, I don’t enjoy most longer Ziggler matches and I want to see Breakfast become more established on the main roster.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Breakfast’s got this.
