    WrestleMania 33 Preview and Predictions

    Red light. Green light.

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

    Neville vs. Austin Aries for the Cruiserweight Championship

    Joey:

    This may be the first time a credible popular face is challenging a credible popular heel since the cruiserweight division became a part of the main roster. That is pretty cool. Neville and Austin Aries have been delivering some compelling segments in recent weeks. They’ve set the tone for an important kickoff match. I think they will have a great match to start the evening/late afternoon. Neville has to retain. That title has changed hands way too many times already and Neville is on fire as a heel right now.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Neville wins.

    Tim:

    EDITOR’S NOTE: Tim is currently dealing with real bad weather in Arkansas, but he may get his predictions in later.

    Interest Level: Pray for Tim/10
    Prediction: Please stay safe.

    Tom:

    ALRIGHT, HERE GOES. I can’t stand Aries as a personality in 2017, especially when he’s meant to be the face. I bloody love Neville though. I think the two will have an excellent match together in a half empty stadium, but the set looks beautiful so that’ll be fun for them.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Neville wins.

    2017 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

    Joey:

    I always enjoy the battle royal on WrestleMania and think it’s a great idea. Everyone assumes Braun Strowman is getting the win here but I think it will be Big Show’s year again. Show got into such great shape for the huge Shaq match and is now relegated to a pre-show battle royal.

    I think WWE rewards him with the win. I also believe they would have bumped something else to the pre-show if Braun was winning or any big surprises were planned. Big Show wins a battle royal with minimal surprises.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Big Show wins.

    Tim:

    EDITOR’S NOTE: Tim is currently dealing with real bad weather in Arkansas, but he may get his predictions in later.

    Interest Level: Pray for Tim/10
    Prediction: Please stay safe.

    Tom:

    The big question is “will Shaq be in the Battle Royal?” and here’s my answer: I think so, yes. I’ve got no idea what Braun is going to do so shut up about that, alright? Maybe Big Show and Shaq team up to eliminate him, I don’t know.

    Anyway, I’m hoping the main story of this is old Sami Zayn and Samoa Joe continuing to rough each other up, with Sami finally getting the win before having a trophy smashed over his sweet head.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Sami Zayn wins.

    Alexa Bliss vs. Naomi vs. Becky Lynch vs. Carmella vs. Natalya vs. Mickie James vs. TBD for the Smackdown Women’s Championship

    Joey:

    This match is likely going to be a mess but hopefully they can find a way to make it work. The ladies of Smackdown have been doing a great job since the brand split and definitely deserve to have this on the main show, assuming it is.

    As much as I’d love for Naomi to get her moment back in her hometown, I believe Alexa Bliss retains and WWE continues to go with her as the champ for a while. Please keep Kelly Kelly away from the ring.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Alexa Bliss wins.

    Tim:

    EDITOR’S NOTE: Tim is currently dealing with real bad weather in Arkansas, but he may get his predictions in later.

    Interest Level: Pray for Tim/10
    Prediction: Please stay safe.

    Tom:

    It’s not on the preshow, thank God! I know the official reason is because we, the fans, demanded that it be on the main show but I think we all know it’s really because they can’t have Naomi’s entrance while it’s still light outside.

    Anyway, is this the match where they have a bunch of old WWE divas show up to launch a feud between the new WWE female superstars to have a scrap over who is strongest/sexiest/most powerful? Hope not! Just let Naomi win, come on.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Naomi wins.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2016 Preview and Predictions

    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.

    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

    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.

    Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler

    Joey:

    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.

    Tim:

    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.

    Tom:

    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

    Joey:

    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.

    Tim:

    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.

    Tom:

    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.

    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.

    Screen Shot 2015-10-10 at 21.13.56

    Tim:

    I’m going to give you some inside baseball real fast. Joey is underneath me with his answer. He put his answer in before I did. I want to reference something he said as I had planned on saying the same thing so here’s what we are going to do. You’re going to go read his answer. When you are done you can scroll up a little bit or move your eyes up a little bit and read mine. Once this happens you will go “oh, I know what he’s talking about because I read Joey’s beforehand.” Go do that now. This is super necessary and important. It will not be a waste of time.

    Are you back? Okay, cool. Let’s do this.

    There’s a lot of things at play in this one for me. I’d love to see Sting get a proper retirement match at a WrestleMania if he and WWE think he could wrestle again. Like Joey said in his answer to this question, my dream match was always Sting vs Shawn Michaels growing up. I always saw the Sting vs Undertaker dream match as people going “these two characters are dark they should fight.” I’m not sure I ever even thought about that match as a kid. There was nothing there to ever make me interested in that. Sting and HBK’s styles would’ve been interesting to watch in a match.

    NOW though… well, there’s nothing really interesting for Sting to do besides a spectacle-laden build-up and showdown with The Undertaker. It would have to be a retirement match at this point in his career but they wouldn’t do a double-retirement as it would take away from the impact of The Undertaker retiring (which I’m almost positive is happening… PLEASE?). If we get Cena vs Undertaker we could possibly get one final Undertaker match that is watchable. I guess that’s the answer but I’m so tired of Cena’s character that I can’t stand him and his matches. Even if they’re good he is insufferable but whatever. NO. Fuck this. Give me Sting vs Undertaker and don’t make me see either guy ever again afterwards.

    Here’s my pitch. You reintroduce Brad Maddox. Sting doesn’t know if he should ever wrestle again. Brad Maddox had a vision while in that cave that he should be Sting’s protégé. He talks Sting into wrestling again and calling out The Undertaker because he saw that moment in the vision. Sting finds his smile and thanks Maddox for helping him get back into the game. Sting takes Maddox under his wing during the build up to the match.

    Meanwhile, you do what seems to be a one-off comedy skit with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose backstage. The Undertaker had just returned to accept Sting’s challenge. Ambrose is daring people to pick up the urn that is just chilling backstage and no one will. Of course, Reigns does because HE’S NOT SCARED. When he picks it up to laugh at everyone for being PANSIES he immediately vomits everywhere which causes him to drop the urn. Over the next few weeks Roman starts getting really strange. He still feels sick all of the time. He only craves raw meat and buys his first motorcycle. Lights flicker whenever he walks in a room sometimes and it’s really starting to freak him out.

    The big match happens. Towards the end Sting and Undertaker are both out. The ref gets to the nine count. LIGHTS GO OUT. You hear screams. Lights flash back on. A baseball bat and the urn are sitting in the spots where Sting and The Undertaker were laying. LIGHTS GO OUT AGAIN. LIGHTING HITS THE RAMP. Lights back on! By the urn stands The New Undertaker Roman Reigns. By the bat stands The New Sting, Brad Maddox. The match continues. Whoever wins it doesn’t matter because of the 5 star classic they put on. The crowd is yelling and losing their shit. Grown men are ripping off their shirts and throwing money at the ring. Kids are being born. The Pope releases a statement the next day about the greatest match that ever was. WrestleMania 32 makes history.

    Sting

    I’ve never been one of the people super into seeing Undertaker vs. Sting as a dream match. My personal Sting WWE dream match was always vs. Shawn Michaels. Sting/Taker would be cool but more so if it were Sting’s first WWE appearance. I’d rather see Undertaker face John Cena at a Wrestlemania because I desperately want to see it happen once before ‘Taker retires. Cena also gives a significantly better chance at Undertaker having a great match in what I personally think will be his retirement bout.

    Tom:

    The Brock Summerslam match was somewhat of a return to form for ‘Taker, but I still think they’ve kind of missed the boat as far as doing something really special between him and John Cena.

    Cena’s been on an absolute tear this year, having innovative, fast-paced matches with a great bunch of younger lads, so for him to slow it down to have an Undertaker match would be kind of a bummer. Let Sting have his ‘Taker match, for fuck’s sake. Spend all the time on the intros and then use spectacular special effects to make it look like they’re firing lightning bolts and crows at one another.

    Neville and Lucha Dragons vs. Stardust and The Ascension on the Kick-Off show

    Joey:

    I’m very happy about this match. Fun little match to the pre-show that continues a story and gets new people involved. Nice way to start the show. I’m not sure we appreciate Neville enough.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Neville and Lucha Dragons win.

    Tim:

    The Lucha Dragons and Neville are a pretty cool trio. The Ascension being paired with Stardust is probably as good as it gets for any of these gimmicks. This will be a good pre-show match as Kalisto, Neville, and sometimes Starfust are fun so watch.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Neville and Lucha Dragons win.

    Tom:

    I really don’t like Stardust! At all! I get what he’s doing and I’m all for variety but his character as it is right now just makes me sad to like a) wrestling and b) comics.  Same goes for The Ascension, so I guess it makes sense to have them together, but they’ll need some serious tweaking before I get into them as a team.

    Neville and Kalisto are still very fun to watch but I want them to move on from what they’re stuck in right now. Have them wrestle each other! That’d work! Sin Cara can go back to NXT and team with Zack Ryder, that seems like it’d make sense.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Neville and the Lucha Dragons win.

    Tim:

    I am really interested in what a Sting vs Rollins match in 2015 will be like but I have to say Cena vs Rollins is what I’m looking forward to the most. Their Summerslam match was great until that ending so hopefully this one can live up to that match and have a good ending.

    John Cena

    Joey:

    I know the luster of Sting will be cool but the last John Cena vs. Seth Rollins match at Summerslam is one of my favorite live matches ever and left me wanting one more match. I’m expecting this to be the match that ends the feud with Cena winning the title back as the United States Championship is best suited with him.

    Considering he’s winning and it’s the conclusion of the feud, they will likely go all out again with a satisfying finish this time so I’m looking forward to it more. I do have faith in Rollins getting the best out of Sting but I think it could easily be a hot mess. I also think Sting is winning the title for a short one month (or maybe one night) run as a way for WWE to get extra attention and build his value back up before WM btw.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    I thought the Rollins/Cena match at Summerslam was absolutely terrific (yes, including the ending and THANK YOU FOR VINDICATING MY CORRECT OPINION, LOYAL READERS) but I’m still a little shocked that my brothers are picking their rematch over Rollins/Sting. Yes, the Cena match is pretty much guaranteed to be better in terms of actual wrestling, but the Sting match could have all sorts of bullshit (including the ongoing saga of Seth’s statue) and I’m fascinated to see how Rollins wrestles with a guy like The Steveman.
