SummerSlam [PREDICTIONS]

I’m back again for some more WWE predictions! SummerSlam, the biggest party of the summer. WWE’s last chance to get me back into wrestling full time before I have to make a decision on whether or not I’m going to Wrestlemania again next year. Right now, I’m firmly in the no column though.

Holy shit, this is going to be a long show. When you include the pre-show (which I won’t actually watch) there’s going to be 13 matches tonight. 13! Good lord, no thank you. Most of them don’t appear to have any real rhyme or reason either. I’m looking at you Zayn/Neville Vs The Dudley Boyz…

I don’t have the patience or the time to give my in depth opinion for each match, so this is going to be very much a speed round of predictions from me. Let’s get started!

Pre-Show

Sami Zayn and Neville Vs The Dudley Boyz

Why does this match exist? If it was soley to get Neville and Zayn on the card, couldn’t we have just set up a 1 on 1 match and given them 10 minutes to blow our socks off?

Winners: Sami Zayn and Neville

12-man Tag Team Match

Too many cooks spoil the broth, just like too many tag teams tend to ruin a match. Much like with the ‘Divas Revolution’ WWE are just throwing everyone together and shouting “HEY, WE’VE GOT A TAG DIVISION! DO YOU LOVE IT YET?!” No, I don’t you haven’t done anything yet. Big fan of American Alpha in general though.

Winners: American Alpha

Cesaro Vs Sheamus

Considering we’ve already had 2 matches between these two in the last month and Cesaro won both. A best of 7 seems rather pointless. At least this way WWE are warning us about the amount of rematches they’re intending to do. Which is nice.

Sheamus picks up the win, probably dirty so that Cesaro can chase him down throughout the series. Easy booking.

Winner: Sheamus Continue reading

NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II [PREDICTIONS]

It’s almost time for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II. Not that catchiest name of all time you’ve got to admit. I’m still somewhat in my wrestling funk post Wrestlemania and I’m finding it hard to get hyped over anything WWE in general. Unfortunately this does included NXT, which I haven’t watch properly in months.

That said, I am going to watch the show and with it being NXT and all, I’m expecting a pretty decent show. Will it match last years? Probably not. HOWEVER, I love me some predictions so I thought I’d just throw my thoughts out now so that I can potentially look real smug later on.

Ember Moon Vs Billie Kay

Well, this is already awkward. I don’t actually know who either of these women are. I’m sure I’ve seen at least one of them wrestle but I’m so out of the loop I don’t know what’s going on. Hey! I already told you I was rusty on this! Cut me some slack after all, you decided to keep reading, if anything this is your fault.

Winner: Billie Kay Continue reading
