WWE Clash Of Champions Predictions!!

UPDATE – See the early betting odds for this event by clicking here!

It’s that time again! Sorry I have been really busy and not writing as much as I should be! I recently launched a new podcast about wrestling on an all-new internet radio station. I’ve been so busy I almost forgot the PPV was this Sunday!

You can watch it on the WWE Network for FREE if you are a new subscriber! If you live in the Boston area, you can still get tickets on Stubhub or TicketLiquidator, but as you already know, this will be a sold out show!

So here are my thoughts on the matches as they stand as of today:

Zack Ryder vs. Mojo Rawley – MOJO!!!!!!! Need I say more?

Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers – Oh Breezango, what have you gotten yourselves into? I think that Harper and Rowan are going to murder them.

United States Champion Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler (Triple Threat Match) – I am so looking forward to this match!!! All these guys are great wrestlers, and are hard-hitting wrestlers. I think that Bobby Roode does have the ability to take the belt away from Corbin, however, I don’t think it will happen in a 3-way match, especially where Ziggler is involved.

Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees) – Sigh. WHYYYYYYYYYYYY???? While I am sure this match will have its moment’s and I like all the guys involved, WHY???  Someone tell Owen and Zayn they are 6 years too late on the Occupy hype train, that crashed and burned 3 years ago fools. Lame. I don’t care who wins… this is stupid, fire whoever wrote this garbage, not Zayn and Owens.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Rusev & Aiden English (Fatal 4-Way Match) – I am so happy to see Shelton Benjamin back in action, even if he does have to team with Gable… (ha!) I think this match is gonna be your typical clusterfuck 4 way tag, with lots of broken bodies. The Uso’s will most likely retain…

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya (Lumberjack Match) – This match is going to be awesome! I love watching both these women wrestle, but sorry Charlotte, I gotta go with Nattie on this one! Get that title back on your waist where it belongs!!!

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal – Sigh…. why? Wrestling was getting interesting again, and then we got slapped in the face with a momentum stopping bitchslap. I really don’t want to watch the same people wrestle again and again and again. Jinder lost… he is a cheater, and does he really deserve a rematch? Nah they won’t give us Styles vs Nakamura yet… But I would have much rather watched him wrestle Rusev than Mahal again. AJ will retain the championship, or WWE may be attempting to incite a riot in Boston.

While this is a “Smackdown” branded PPV, I am not as excited for it as I usually would be. The highlights of this PPV will be the women’s match and the tag team clusterfuck for me.

Survivor Series 2017 Predictions w/Update Goodness!

This Sunday is Survivor Series live at the Toyota Center in Houston Texas! Tickets are still available from StubHub and Ticket Liquidator, so get them now as they are sure to sell out!

The matches have shifted quite a bit since their announcements as we have two new Champions, as AJ Styles and Charlotte Flair replace Jinder Mahal and Natalya in their respective champion vs champion matchups. I am also super sad they released James Ellsworth, and if you share my sentiment, you should use the hashtag #BringBackEllsworth

 

So here are my thoughts on the matches as they stand as of the time of this writing!
Edit: 2 more matches announced, which i saw on nodq.com
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs Breezango (Pre-Show): Breeeeeeeezango! What more needs to be said?
Elias Sampson vs Matt Hardy (Pre-Show): I hope this is a sing off. No really, I do. I also think Matt will win with help from Jeff who will run in from the crowd.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
Enzo Amore (C) vs. Kalisto (Kickoff Match): We have already seen these two fight it out, and I think this will be an enjoyable match. Since people seem to truly despise Enzo in an out of the ring these days, there is a good chance he will retain the title.

Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. United States Champion Baron Corbin: This is going to be a great match. I love Baron Corbin, and think he moves incredibly well for a big guy, and this is a great matchup. The outcome will be based on whether or not the Miztorage is at ringside. If they interfere, The Miz could be victorious. But who knows, Corbin may be smart enough to stomp them out early, leaving The Miz to fight on his own… My heart says Corbin, but my gut says The Miz.

Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos: Really Looking forward to this match. I think it’s going to be a lot of fast-paced fun, with some huge tag team moves. I think Cesaro and Sheamus will take this one.

The Shield vs. The New Day: The Sheild is reunited once more, now that Roman Reigns has returned, but will their newly rekindled alliance be enough to overcome the incredible bond The New Day has built. I am going to be unpopular and say The New Day will be victorious.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair: I really wanted to see Nattie tear Bliss apart, so now I guess we get to see Charlotte do it instead. Charlotte… duh

Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Team RAW: Sasha Banks, Asuka, Alicia Fox, Nia Jaxx, Bayley
Team Smackdown: Naomi, Becky Lynch, Tamina, Carmella, and a 5th woman TBA:
BRING BACK PAIGE ALREADY YOU FOOLS! On that note, the 5th woman from team Smackdown could really make this… Not really sure which team will take this, but wth the current line up, I think team RAW may have this one…

Men’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Team RAW: Kurt Angle, HHH, Jason Jordan, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman
Team Smackdown: John Cena, Shane McMahon, Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, Bobby Rhoode:
WHY DO WE HAVE TO SEE HHH AND SHANE IN THE SAME FUCKING MATCH? Is Stephanie going to be the secret 5th woman… UGH Its like those marks who buy a company to put themselves over… on that note… team RAW will probably win just because they have Strowman.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. WWE Champion AJ Styles (Champion vs. Champion Match) I don’t want to watch this match. Mostly because I still hate Lesnar, because he is boring and a shitty champ. And honestly its going to be a struggle for him to be in a believable match with Styles, who can wrestle circles around him. I say Styles, cause fuck Lesner.Overall I am Looking forward to the show, no matter the snarky tone I get when I write about the matches.

WWE Battleground 2017 Predictions

I been doing PPV predictions for a few months solid now, and generally am doing pretty well with my guesses. My last predictions didn’t have a live review paired with it, as Great Balls of Fire fell on my birthday, so I hit the beach instead. Honestly the Smackdown brand is way more watchable and interesting right now, and RAW’s creative team needs to get their heads out of their asses, and use their talent right. So here are my predictions for Battleground, which I will be watching this Sunday!

Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English (Kickoff Match) – I have to be honest, I really haven’t seen a ton of either of these guys work, but from what I have seen I think this should be an entertaining match. I think Dillinger will take it

Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis – I think this match should be pretty enjoyable, but we all know Kanellis is getting the win on this one.

Breezango prepare to close the case at WWE Battleground – I Personally think it’s The Ascension.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day – I like both teams a lot and I like what they do in the ring together. I think The New Day is really going to have to fight for those titles, so I think The Uso’s will retain, at least until Summerslam

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin – The heat between these two has been pretty good. I think this match will be one of the high points of the night, and Nakamura will be victorious.

United States Champion AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens – AJ will retain the title, but these two are going to beat the snot out of each other.
John Cena vs. Rusev (Flag Match) – This may not be a popular opinion, but its mine, fuck your flags. The premise of this match is stupid, I hope Rusev chokes Cena out with Old Glory to take the win.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana (Five-Way Elimination Match to determine Naomi’s opponent at SummerSlam) – Really looking forward to this match, I personally want to see Becky vs Naomi at Summerslam, but I have a feeling we may seen Lana take this one.
 
WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton (Punjabi Prison Match) – First I would like to say, fuck prisons, and fuck this culture of normalizing and glorifying imprisonment. We see Orange is The New Black and kids movies like Minions 3, promoting prison as if its summer camp, then this stupid played out racist stereotypical shit was done already with The Great Khali. The US holds the most prisoners in the world, and India rounds out the top 5 countries with the most prisoners, but based on population the US far outshines them, in many cases for profit. That being said… Jinder will probably retain the championship through Summerslam at the very least.
