Hey, everyone. Let’s get a little wild and name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!
Today is yet another momentous occasion. We will be naming The Sexy Wrestler of The Week yet again. This is what we all live for. The excitement. The thrill. The significant rush of emotions. This is why we all wake up in the morning.
it is time to see democracy at work.
There it is. The Sexy Wrestler of The Week is Matt Sydal. Forget the stresses of modern day life while breathing in those bashful eyes. Study the tilted head of a high-flying Adonis. Become one with hair that was shaped by the thoughts of an exotic bird. Open your mind’s eye and swim across the brilliant wrinkles and lines that tell a deep story that can probably be summed up with “I’ve been through some stuff but weed chilled me out, man.”
Is it possible to predict the future of the wrestling world? Given that ‘plans change’ might as well be the official motto of the WWE, this might be easier said than done, but in Over/Under, we’re still gonna try!
Each week, we’ll choose five scenarios and then predict how likely they are to come true, by saying whether it’s ‘over’ (i.e. we think it’s over the odds that it’ll happen) or ‘under’ (i.e. we think it’s under the odds). As usual, members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett are on hand to embarrass themselves by being the ones to make the predictions.
Summerslam 2014: The date that at least one member of The Shield will split off from the group.
The Shield are nearing the one year anniversary of their debut. One of the strongest WWE factions ever, when exactly will they split up?
Seth Rollins will be the first out of The Shield. I’m kind of ready to see him or Ambrose break off and do their own things but also kind of sad about it because Rollins and Reigns are much needed in the tag team division. I can see this happening real soon. Maybe even in time for Wrestlemania.
The Shield breakup is coming sooner rather than later in my guesstimation. I think around the Royal Rumble, Seth Rollins will leave or get kicked out. Everyone can tell he’s a much better babyface and a match with him as face vs. heel Ambrose is something I’d LOVE to see at Wrestlemania 30. Either way, I see Rollins being the person to be split off and I see it happening well before Summerslam.
I’m going to say no – it’s inevitable, but Summerslam just feels a little too soon. With three ‘core’ teams in The Shield, The Usos and The Rhodeseseses, the tag division seems to finally have settled into a nice groove, and the only team I see splitting within the next few months is Cody and Goldust. I’m assuming Rollins is the one who’ll receive the eventual face turn, but I don’t know what he’ll be once they take him out of the tactical gear – he’s so good that I’m sure he’ll be fine in the long run, but it’d just be a shame to see him Ted Dibiase-ing after a Shield split. While there’s plenty of time between now and Summerslam to give him more of a character and a purpose to oppose the other two, they’re so strong as a team right now that I think they could go another year without needing to be divided.
