Breezeango vs The Uso's
Considering this match was announced in the last few days I don't seeing being anything more than just a way to get these two teams on the show in some form even if it is the pre-show. I will say that I really do think that WWE brass like Brezze & Fandango as a team which is a good thing for both these men. As far as tag teams I think that at this point The Uso's are somewhat bullet proof and are pretty capable of taking a loss especially if it means helping another team gain something. Breezeango wins.
Beck Lynch vs Natalya
Last month it was Sheamus vs Apollo Crews that was the ify match that everyone was unsure about and though the interest level may be higher for this match tonight it still in my book needs to show how different they are and why we should care. As far as the overall prospect of the feud I really have enjoyed as let me ask you when was the last time the WWE had a women's feud that didn't involve the title. As far as things go I'm not sure who needs the win but I will go with Becky just to give her something if I have to pick.
WWE United States Championship Match:
(c) Rusev w/ Lana vs Zack Ryder
Hmm what is wrong with this picture? I know a lot of fans still love the "Long Island Iced Z" but it is hard to forget that he lost twice in one week to The Miz and then basically went off TV until he beat Sheamus on Smackdown a few weeks ago which some how netted him to deserving enough to face Rusev for the title. My interest level for this match is low and therefore this match doesn't really matter to me. But I will say I see Rusev's temper to get the better of him allowing Ryder to win and gain another shot at the gold in a few weeks at Summerslam to keep the feud going and let Ryder become credible and more deserving of the gold.
Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs Sasha Banks & ???
This is a great wrestling wonder as surprises always attract a crowd and make the interest grow to the peak of possibilities. I mean I have heard everyone from Nia Jax to Trish Stratus as possible partners for Sasha tonight and it is with reason to believe those possibilities. However, remember we have thought Finn Balor would debut for how long? I can honestly say I am stumped as to who Sasha's partner is especially after Mick Foley coming on as Raw's GM so I am just going to wait and see. Though I don't see it being Bayley I still do believe that Sasha and Unknown will win.
New Day vs Wyatt Family
After the travesty that was the fight at the Wyatt Family compound.... no matter what WWE tries to tell you. The idea that we are suppose to take that low budget horror film as something serious is a joke and darn insulting to the viewer. I will keep this one short considering they split the Wyatt Family in the Draft I don't see a reason why the New Day would not win this match so that's why they will win the match and pretty much effectively end the feud with the Wyatt's.
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match:
(c) The Miz w/ Maryse vs Darren Young w/ Bob Backlund
Well the match that nobody has been waiting for and I for one love Bob Backlund, but I think it's more likely they put back together the Prime Time Players then if they would actually let Darren beat Miz. Miz has been one of the best IC champions in recent memory as has been one of the best heels WWE has since the start of 2016 and the idea that he should lose tonight is Ludacris. Miz wins clean and may put an end to Making Darren Young Great!
John Cena, Enzo, & Big Cass vs The Club
I'm going to keep this short, because much like the Wyatt Family were split up in the WWE Draft so was The Club. Which my book would lead me to question the idea of why The Club deserves the victory tonight if they will not be a stable anymore after tonight. It is a 50/50 possibility that Finn Balor will make his debut tonight and in some way help keep The Club together but I will count on the side of him not being their over him actually showing up.
Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn
Anyone who followed their careers before the WWE know that these two have been feuding with the public eye since 2009 when Kevin turned his back on Sami at Final Battle by beating him with a chair. But shh nobody is suppose no that. I only bring that up to give perspective on how long it has been that Kevin has been feuding in some form with Sami Zayn. These two broke in together in IWS up in Canada, and the only mistake I think WWE made last Tuesday was by not putting both Kevin and Sami on different shows to effectively end the feud between these two rivals for good. This one is easy though because Kevin won last so that means Sami needs the win here tonight and that' how it will go.
WWE World Championship:
(c) Dean Ambrose vs Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins
Quote whatever dirt sheet you want and effectively keep your opinion of Roman to yourself because I have heard enough of it about how bad or good Roman is. The point is in some case it doesn't matter who we want or don't want it is up to WWE brass to decide and that why Roman won the belt in the first place. Then again the idea that Roman could become a 4 time champion in less than a 1 year makes me sick to my stomach. Let me second what I said it is not that Roman makes me sick it's how he is booked that makes me sick and also the idea that he has been gone for 30 days and not a part of the build up for this match at all pretty much yet he is getting the shot. What type of message does it send that someone could fail a test but still get a World Title shot even though they are returning on the night of the show, what a joke!! I am under the impression that this match will not have a decisive winner and that it will lead to the introduction of another World Title for the company and the title will go to either Raw or Smackdown depending on who wins the match tonight. If Roman wins nobody will be happy, but then again what type of message does that send to talent and the fans that someone could be suspended 30 days and then come back and become World Champion. Dean wins as he is the only one to gain anything with a win tonight.
