It’s a Fastlane, baby, drive me crazy.
Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar on the kickoff
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”
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.
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
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.
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.
Interest Level: 2/10
Prediction: Nia Jax wins. Continue reading
