    The Revival vs. Enzo and Big Cass for the NXT Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    I have to say I have very little interest in this. Enzo and Big Cass have to be on the main roster soon and The Revival are aggressively dull. The idea of a NXT showcase match on a main roster show is great but this seems like a poor choice. Hopefully the crowd is into Enzo and Big Cass as that will desperately be needed for the match to work considering the opponents.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Dawson and Dasher win.

    Tim:

    Dasher and Dawson are a bore. This match is whatever to me. I don’t care for Enzo and Cass taking a loss on a main roster show that is being broadcast but they did the same with Kevin Owens dropping his NXT belt at Beast In The East during his transition to the main roster. Time moves on and it won’t matter too much in the end… I guess. Enzo and Cass are amazing together and hopefully they’ll get that call-up soon.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Dashon and Dawser win.

    Tom:

    I don’t really care for Dash and Dawson at all as wrestlers and I find them super hokey, just as I do every wrestler who claims to be “old school” in such a pandering way. #HardHitsNoFlips! #MemphisHeat! #ArnAndTully!

    Contrarily, I am very much in love with Enzo and Cass but they seem to have one foot out the door of NXT so I’m not sure what’s going on here. I wish they’d gotten the belts back in Brooklyn, oh well! Anyway, I’m still moderately excited for this because hearing Enzo and Cass get an insane reaction in front of a bigger crowd is one of my favourite things about wrestling right now, so I really hope that happens.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: #QTMarshall

    The New Day vs. Sheamus and King Bad News Wade Barrett for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    The New Day are lovely but I don’t care about this unless it’s the Wrestlemania match. Sorry.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: New Day wins.

    Tim:

    Sheamus and Barrett are alright in the ring and The New Day are just entertaining. These two teams don’t really do much for me together but maybe it’ll be alright.

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

    Tom:

    Have they officially retitled Sheamus and Barrett as “The Lads” now? I hope so. I don’t really have any thoughts about seeing these teams wrestle but it would be fun seeing Big E banter Sheamus into submission live on the award-winning WWE Network.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt

    Joey:

    This match as a rumored Wrestlemania attraction was not impressive but it’s really cool on a secondary show like this. I’m looking forward to seeing how they work together and think the match should end up coming together well. A rare Brock Lesnar secondary show match is always fun.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Brock Lesnar wins.

    Tim:

    I think I’ve only ever seen one intriguing Bray Wyatt match but I’m totally down to see him be thrown around by Lesnar on a thrown together network special.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Brock Lesnar wins.

    Tom:

    I totally forgot this was happening and I can’t say I’m too interested in it. Bray does nothing for me these days, nothing at all. Brock doing awful things to his fellow human beings is enjoyable, but I’m not expecting anything new or surprising from this match.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Brock Lesnar wins.

    Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship

    Joey:

    Don’t tell Tom but if Dean Ambrose wins the title, I will sell our Monday Night Raw tickets and pretend my dog ate them. (I don’t have a dog.)

    WWE has done a great job setting up this match. I desperately want Ambrose to lose and I don’t necessarily view this as a great match combination so my only motive here is cheering for Triple H and panicking every time Ambrose has a near fall. At the end of the day, Triple H will save us once again.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: ALL HAIL

    Tim:

    Dean Ambrose has been put in a great spot. I think he’s been incredibly weak on the mic and his delivery has been a huge turn-off for me through this whole feud. In the end this doesn’t matter because the boring story being told is about Roman Reigns becoming “the man.” Triple H and Ambrose is not a match-up I have any interest in. The only thing I care about in the main event scene is watching Reigns and Triple H’s crowd reactions. Things are that bad.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Triple H wins.

    Tom:

    Hey, did you guys hear Joey got a new dog? Apparently its bed is right next to the drawer where he keeps all his tickets, hopefully that doesn’t cause any problems.

    So, this match – I’m not sure what purpose this is all serving! Is it just killing time while they figure out what to do with old Roman? They’ve presented Ambrose about a hundred times better than they have Reigns in the build-up to this, and I think the match itself could be pretty good but it’s just hard to get too invested in it all. Also, I bloody LOVE silliness in wrestling usually, but Dean’s silliness just rubs me the wrong way. Here’s hoping “The King of Kings” keeps him from being too wacky.

    Interest Level: BOW DOWN TO THE/10
    Prediction: BOW DOWN TO THE KING

      It’s not pleasant to read about 3 guys who hate Ambrose every special event predictions
