Vince McMahon will announce who will run RAW. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon or Shane McMahon.
I’m almost positive (and hopeful) that Vince is going to announce a brand split. It needs to happen. Their is too much talent that doesn’t get showcased enough. I desperately miss the brand split era. There could be the WWE draft again and so much more use with rising stars. The only problem being, they wouldn’t have a world championship for Smackdown. This will also give WWE a chance to make the United States Championship mean something again. Instead of being a filler match on the pre-show.
Ryback vs. Kalisto for the United States Championship
Not much to be said here. I love watching Kalisto in the ring. Similar to a young Rey Mysterio. Blah Blah Blah. Not excited about the match. I’ve never been a fan of Ryback. Also, putting a championship match on the under card/Pre-show is degrading to the championship and the performers. Ryback wins. New feud with Apollo Crews.
Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
Baron Corbin is on the rise, Dolph Ziggler is an established face in the company. By demolishing one of the most resilient fighters in the WWE you start to build Baron Corbin as a monster. WWE desperately needs a new monster, someone who gives you chills when their music hits because you know someone is about to get their ass kicked. They will put on an entertaining match. Corbin comes away with a decisive victory after hitting “The End of Days”
Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
Honestly, I’m just tired of seeing Sami Zayn get beat up. I want to see him dish out some punishment and show a more hard hitting style than we’ve seen. Kevin Owens consistently has good matches. Owens match ups with John Cena after he RAW debut were amazing. Zayn just recently had ,without a doubt, the match of the year with Nakamura. These two know each other so well, and are both so talented. I can’t wait to see them tear the house down. This match will steal the show. Sami Zayn will pick up the win.
Chris Jericho Vs. Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose’s popularity is at the peak of WWE right now. He is probably the most over star on the roster. To be honest I’m not completely drawn into this match. I think it will be a great match, I just don’t find myself on the edge of my seat to know what is going to happen. Ambrose will pick up the win.
Enzo Amore and Collin Cassidy vs. The Vaudevillains in the Finals for the #1 Conterndership to the WWE Tag Team Championships
This will be an exciting match up. This is to showcase the Tag Team talent being called up from NXT. The Divas aren’t the only one having a revolution, the tag team division is looking better and better as more NXT stars are called up. The Vaudevillains are a talented team, but I’m afraid their gimmick will be lost on the main stream audience and they will end up being forgotten like The Ascension. Enzo and Cas will pull out the win. The Promos we can look forward to seeing The New Day vs. Enzo and Cas will be great!
Charlotte w/ Ric Flair vs. Natalya w/ Bret Hart for the WWE Women’s Championship
Natalya is one of the most gifted female wrestlers on the roster. She is definitely deserving of a Women’s Championship. Her on screen character leaves something to be desired, and her mic skills are sub-par. Her in ring ability, however, is far better than most in the WWE. Bret Hart is there to “even the odds” against Ric Flair being in Charlotte’s corner. Although, I doubt Bret Hart is going to yell profanity at Charlotte or tell her to kill her self. So is it really even? It gives the illusion that Natalya has an advantage. Charlotte, despite the playing field being leveled by Bret Hart, will pull out the victory.
Cesaro vs. The Miz w/ Maryse for the Intercontinental Championship
I just have to say, The Miz may be the luckiest mother fucker alive. Starting on the real world and growing to main event Wrestlemania as WWE Champion and be married to Maryse? Don’t get me wrong, The Miz is good, but is he really that good? I digress, any match with Cesaro is something to keep an eye on. I would like to say that Maryse won’t be a factor, but she probably will. I don’t think Cesaro will win the Intercontinental Title, because he needs to be pushed to the World Title scene. With the help of Maryse, Miz retains.
AJ Styles vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
There has been alot of talk about how this match will go. Will Anderson and Gallows help AJ win? The internet, in its infinite wisdom, thinks that Anderson and Gallows will actually help Roman and turn on AJ. Could Roman be the new leader of the WWE’s take on the bullet club? God I hope not. It’s possible that they could pull that off, and Roman NEEDS a heel turn. I just don’t like the idea of Roman running the bullet club. In either scenario, I don’t think they will put the belt on AJ (yet). Roman retains.
