Tag team match
Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar (with Alicia Fox)
Winner: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa
Why: I can see Dar being the one that takes the fall because we know Kendrick doesn’t want to be involved with Tozawa.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher
Winner: “King” Neville
Why: It’s going to set up for the Aries and Neville feud for the simple fact on 205 live Neville said that he is the greatest cruiserweight.
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass
Winner: “The Club” Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
Why: this was a feud we have seen when the club first came to the company, now they will beat them with the titles on the line.
WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
Winner: Charlotte Flair
Why: Charlotte is undefeated when it a network special and the women’s championship is on the line.
Sami Zayn vs. Samoa Joe
Winner: Samoa Joe
Why: Samoa Joe is the enforcer of Triple H’s new faction that is about to be shown
Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax
Winner: Nia Jax
Why: Jax needs this victory so she can get into the championship hunt
Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
Winner: Braun Strowman
Why: Taker will have his mind games during the match to distract roman, even though strowman is going to defeat Reigns.
WWE Universal Championship
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Goldberg
Winner: kevin Owens
Why: I can see Brock pulling a deja vu moment when Goldberg interfered in Brock’s match against Eddie Guerrero at vengeance before wrestlemania 20. I can also see Chris Jericho getting involved to set up a match between Owens and Jericho.
I am loving what WWE is doing with 205 live, they are booking Neville in the right direction. What is going to make it more sweeter is when Aries challenges him for the championship at Wrestlemania, The reason why I’m saying this is because while I was watching 205 live I noticed they brought up during the Neville and perkins match that either Aries and Neville weren’t participants in the Cruiserweight Classic. I am waiting for Neville versus Aries because that is a dream match that I want to happen, the possibility of it happening and it being for the cruiserweight championship will be the added cherry on top. Fastlane is going to be in Aries hometown, that is where I can see they plant the seeds for the feud.
Now with NXT I could see Authors of Pain losing the titles at Takeover Mania 2, because I feel they will be the enforcers for Triple H’s new heel stable along with Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens. The question is going to be who will be the team to dethrone them, the answer is actually simple it going to be D.I.Y because I see a triple threat tag team match between them, The Revival, and Authors of Pain. Because I have a feeling Authors of Pain will go to raw, and The Revival will be the team that goes to smackdown. D.I.Y will have the tag team title reign that will break the Ascensions reign, speaking of lengthy title reigns, Asuka is going to have hers broken at Takeover Mania 2, people are wondering who is going to defeat Asuka for the championship, It will be Ember Moon who will Eclipse Asuka reign.
Let me know what you think WWE might do, because you never know they could be watching to see what people are thinking.
Monday Night Raw had a lot of shock value to try change things up storyline wise. But really they planted the seeds of the break up between Jericho and kevin Owens, Honestly I love how they had it done, now it going to set them up to face off at mania because, you can see it now Kevin Owens is going to screw Jericho during his US title match to Sami Zayn. Speaking of Sami Zayn, it looks like they are planting the seeds for a Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn feud which could be for the US title, which I think would be amazing because their feud over the number one contendership was epic in NXT.
The tag team division I love that the Club is the champions, One thing that I am waiting for is to see Cesaro and Sheamus break up, Because Cesaro should be on smackdown where he could have a chance to be in the title picture. But who do I think could dethrone the club for the tag team championships? It will be the Authors of Pain, once TM61 is ready for action once their member is healthy. I could see Authors of Pain versus Gallows and Anderson.
Now with the women’s division, I respect that they change the woman’s champion on Monday Night Raw during the Main Event. Bayley as the champion is going to be good for the company, because she is a woman that has her merch selling out. Does this mean that she is going to be a short reign or will she defeat Charlotte at Fastlane or when they have the next rematch? Honestly I think Charlotte will get the title back at Fastlane because WWE is pushing her PPV title match streak. I honestly think that WWE will make the women’s championship match a fatal four way with Bayley getting the title by pinning either Charlotte or Nia Jax.
Well it is going to be interesting to see how the Raw road to mania will shape up after fastlane.
