WWE Summerslam Predictions

Alright we are at the hottest party of them all as WWE likes to call it for Summerslam as it has been a while since i have done a predictions blog for wrestling, I know people were shocked to see my blog dry for a while from wrestling. Well here we go here is my predictions for this year’s summerslam.

Brock Lesnar (c) (with Paul Heyman) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe vs. Braun Strowman Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE Universal Championship

Winner: Braun Strowman

Reason:I could see WWE wanting to start the Monster vs Beast storyline for WM 34 by having Braun Strowman win the championship sunday. Braun will be the one to pin Roman Reigns or brock. But I wouldn’t be shocked if Samoa Joe wins the championship either.


Naomi (c) vs. Natalya  WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship

Winner: carmella via cash in

Reason: Naomi will be the one to retain against Natalya, carmella will cash in her money in the bank and defeat naomi because they are in New York which is her home state.

Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Sasha Banks  WWE Raw Women’s Championship

Winner: Sasha Banks

Reason: they are going to start to plant the seeds towards a Sasha Banks and Bayley wrestlemania match for the championship

Jinder Mahal (c) (with The Singh Brothers) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura  WWE Championship

Winner: Jinder Mahal

Reason: Jinder has the numbers game at his advantage against Shinsuke, But on the other hand I could see Shinsuke winning the championship to set up something down the road between him and AJ Styles.

Akira Tozawa (c) (with Titus O’Neil and Apollo Crews) vs. Neville WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Winner: Akira Tozawa

Reason: They just crowned him champion, why would WWE just put the championship on someone to take it off of them a couple days later, plus this is momentum for the titus brand as a whole.

AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens WWE United States Championship Shane McMahon will serve as special guest referee[33]

Winner: AJ Styles

Reason: somehow some way shane will get involved to cost owens the championship which could make shane go heel against Owens in the future.

Randy Orton vs. Rusev

Winner: Rusev

Reason: Rusev lost to John Cena at Battleground, this is the pay per view for Rusev to get all the heel heat back by beating the viper randy orton.

The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and/or Xavier Woods) (c) vs. The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso ) WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship

Winner: The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso )

Reason: I feel that the New day need to split up, and The Usos have been more entertaining after winning the championships. I love the USO Penitentiary storyline that they have going on for them.

Big Show vs. Big Cass Singles match
Enzo Amore will be suspended above the ring in a shark cage

Winner: Big Cass

Reason: Enzo some how some way will find a way to cost big show the match, but in reality he is going to turn on big show and reunite with Big Cass.

The demon Finn Bálor vs. Bray Wyatt Singles match

Winner: “The Demon King” Finn Balor

Reason: Bray Wyatt saw Finn as Fatal Finn Balor but he has not witnessed the Demon King in person. This is where I can see Balor getting one up on Wyatt

John Cena vs. Baron Corbin Singles match

Winner: Baron Corbin

Reason: Gut feeling that Corbin is going to get revenge against cena for costing him the money in the bank cashing in on smackdown.

Cesaro and Sheamus (c) vs. Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

Winner: The Shield

Reason: If you are going to reunite two thirds of the shield you need to have them win the tag team gold, possibly have Roman Reigns join and win the IC championship.

That was my predictions for summerslam be on the lookout because i will be giving out my NXT brooklyn predictions

Thoughts on WWE

Monday and Tuesday was action packed night for WWE to push forward with storylines for Elimination Chamber and Fastlane but also WWE Wrestlemania, now that their is news that Seth Rollins could potentially miss mania again this year due to a knee injury, unless this is a storyline angle and he is not bad enough to where he can miss the events. But my question that still remains is who will be the one that replaces Rollins to face either Samoa Joe or Triple H at either Fastlane or Mania.

While the Raw brand is still trying to figure out their road to Wrestlemania, it seems like the smackdown brand might be on a way that fans might actually want to see for their main event match since orton won the rumble, with elimination chamber coming up I can actually see John Cena lose his world title to Bray Wyatt which will set up Randy orton and Bray Wyatt for the WWE Championship. Now I know but what about John Cena? Well I think WWE is going to have a Total divas intergender match having Miz and Maryse face off against John Cena and Nikki Bella. Now there’s rumors flying they are doing this because Nikki Bella might be retiring due to her neck injuries, another rumor being tossed around that after the match John Cena might actually ask Nikki to marry him which could seem like a surprise to people.

Now I am actually looking forward to Elimination Chamber more so than Fastlane because of the fact that WWE SmackDown is booked better and it shows compared to Monday Night Raw. I am loving that Smackdown’s woman’s division is shown in a better light then compared to Raw being just Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Nia Jax. But on smackdown you have Alexa Bliss, Natalya, Mickie James, Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, and the one that I think will be the next WWE Woman’s Champion, Naomi which is way overdue to have a reign as champion, because she should have been the one that dethroned AJ Lee at Wrestlemania 30 but couldn’t happened to an eye injury she suffered by a botched move from Askana. I know I am going to get heat from the Bliss Fanboys, But I honestly think WWE needs to put the championship on Naomi, she is one of the most underrated women on the smackdown roster, her having the championship will be a big accomplishment, because it was since JAZZ held the women’s championship, that it was around the waist of a woman of color.

I know people want Alexa or Becky to have the championship, Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t mind it. BUT Naomi does deserve to have this chance to be champion, I don’t care if it is a short reign or a long reign. I would just love to see her with the championship around her waist while the fans feel the glow.

Let’s get back to Monday Night Raw shall we? I think it is time that Rusev has another reign as a champion. I know that Sami Zayn is in the picture for the united states championship, But I think Rusev would benefit more from having the reign going into Wrestlemania because you could set up a confrontation with Kurt Angle at Mania.

Now for the universal championship, as much as I don’t want to say it but the money match will be Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar with the championship on the line. But I would like to see Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens for the universal championship or even Finn Balor vs Owens. I think knowing Vincent Kennedy McMahon’s mind, he is going to want to have the championship match between the two part timers. I wouldn’t be mad if they actually got one of them to be full time if they were to win the championship.

As for the tag team championships, if The Club wants to weed out the nerds so they say. I could see them having an interesting program with D.I.Y or maybe rehash the feud with the New Day for the championships. But there’s one tag team that I would love to see get a shot at the tag team championships at Mania, that tag team is Revival, they were the tag team the revolutionized wwe tag team scene through NXT.

Let me know what you think will happen going towards mania, you can hit me up on twitter at @WarriorMW23 and you can hit me up on my facebook page facebook.com/MattWardCSR8723

Mickie James returns

Last night on WWE Smackdown Live we saw the anticipated return of Mickie James during the steel cage match between Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch. Now I know fans are confused why Mickie is being paired up with Alexa that it doesn’t make sense to them. Alright wrestling fans here is my take on this storyline.

Mickie James is returning so she can help spotlight the younger talent that are on the roster, now if this works out right we could potential be seeing a double turn in the making because if you look at the pairing of Alexa Bliss and Mickie James they are both playing crazy type heels against a lone babyface in Becky Lynch. Now here is where the switch of heel and babyface happens.

We all have been hearing talks that Sasha Banks hinted at wanting a shot at the women’s championship for Smackdown Live. Let’s say smackdown trades Sasha Banks for let say Naomi, Becky Lynch has stated if she was to turn heel no one would expect it. But here is where i think the turn will go to shock the fans.

Alexa and Mickie are bragging about how they are best on smackdown live that Becky Lynch comes out and says that their is one team that you haven’t beat. Sasha Banks comes out to the shock of Alexa Bliss and Mickie James, then Daniel Bryan makes a tag team match for Elimination Chamber. The match goes on as things were starting to get strange between Mickie and Alexa, right when Alexa goes to make the Mickie walks away from the tag saying “I am better than you” then Sasha makes the tag to Becky then she gets into the face of Alexa as Sasha was standing right by here as they are looking at Alexa then bam that where Becky hits Sasha with the exploder suplex as she looks at Alexa and smirks and lays down for Alexa. Then Mickie rushes to Sasha aid, then Becky and Alexa start attacking Mickie and Sasha which leads Becky to turn heel against someone that people wouldn’t think she would turn against. We will see Mickie as a good girl going up against the bad girl Becky Lynch

Now let’s be honest i know wrestling fans are going to moan and groan if they don’t get things their way. But if WWE would pull off a storyline like this that got you invested where the turns surprise you would you be interested to watch this storyline happen?
