Payback

Another three weeks and another mostly meaningless PPV to talk about. I mean, really – this is basically a copy of Extreme Rules but with less excitement. And now we’re throwing in another PPV between this one and what was going to be the next one, Money in the Bank, but that one at least has some intrigue. The Elimination Chamber is coming back – and it will have the IC Title and Tag Team Titles decided inside of it, which makes things interesting. Plus that’s probably when they’ll do Rollins/Kane and Cena could potentially defend against Neville, maybe. At least that’s what I think. and then there’s NXT Unstoppable next week. Way more intriguing stuff after this show than this show itself.

Preshow Match

Damien Sandow and Curtis Axel vs. The Ascension
Damien Sandow and Curtis Axel vs. The Ascension
I mean, really? Macho Mandow and Axel Mania? Really? The “Mega” Powers? Really? I thought Sandow was done with this shit. You had something WWE and you killed it in literally seconds. And just when I think they might do something with The Ascension, I realize they’re just going to job to comedy gimmicks.

Prediction: Damien Sandow and Curtis Axel

Naomi and Tamina vs. The Bella Twins
Naomi and Tamina vs. The Bella Twins
So this is what we’re going to do at PPVs all year – tag team match vs. Bellas, Divas title match, tag team match vs. Bellas, Divas title match, tag team match vs. Bellas, etc.? Count me out. First off, ALL FOUR ARE HEELS. At no point did the Bellas turn face. NAOMI ATTACKED FAN FAVORITE PAIGE BECAUSE PAIGE WON SHOT AT HEEL CHAMPION NIKKI BELLA, PAIGE IS OUT, NOW NAOMI IS HEEL. NIKKI DIDN’T HELP PAIGE FEND OFF NAOMI, NIKKI IS STILL HEEL. ALL OF THEM ARE HEELS. And stop with the tag matches – we need divas title matches. You’re getting closer and closer with Nikki’s title reign to a record no one on the active roster besides Paige has any right to break and you MUST do something about that soon. You have 120 days to get that belt off of her.

Prediction: Naomi and Tamina

Ryback vs. Bray Wyatt
Ryback vs. Bray Wyatt
Why is Bray Wyatt feuding with Ryback? Tell me. Why? Ryback isn’t anything. Bray just fought Taker at WM. Why are they feuding? Why would Bray care about a meaningless piece of crap? Seriously. Please, WWE, come to your senses – let Bray win this, and then do not continue this feud any further. We don’t want it.

Prediction: Bray Wyatt

Bad News Barrett vs. Neville
Bad News Barrett vs. Neville
Did WWE do King of the Ring just to call him King Barrett instead of Bad News Barrett and thus eliminate his over catchphrase for good? It seems like it. Anyways, I’m kind of confused as to why they’re having this again – I know they both won once, but Barrett just won KOTR and Neville was just brought up, and both really need to win this. Kind of booked themselves into a corner. Neville to win because he might be in the running for a U.S. Title or IC Title shot at Elimination Chamber – and if he’s in the Chamber, he or Sheamus is most likely to win.

Prediction: Neville

Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus
Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus
I do like that this feud has progressed – it was nicely done. I should at least commend them for something I suppose. It is kind of weird there’s no stipulation but oh well. I would assume Sheamus would win this one – I think he’s the one most likely to win the vacated IC Title in two weeks.

Prediction: Sheamus

Two out of Three Falls Match for the WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) New Day (c) (Kofi Kingston & Big E) vs. Uppercats (Cesaro & Tyson Kidd)

Uppercats vs. New Day
If this match is anything like their match at Extreme Rules, expect it to be at least second best match of the night. The match at ER was probably my favorite tag match in WWE in a long time. And two out of three falls makes it even better. I expect New Day will retain.

Prediction: New Day

I Quit Match for the WWE U.S. Championship
John Cena (c) vs. Rusev

John Cena vs. Rusev
Because this match SO needs to happen a fourth time. A lot of people are saying Rusev’s going to threaten to hurt Lana to get Cena to quit but why? Cena has arms – he can get Rusev off of her. I bet he tries but Cena does stop him, then Lana throws in the towel for Rusev and in doing so splits from him. Just for the record, if Lana somehow becomes the “face of the women’s division” like some are saying after this while Paige and Sasha and Bayley and Charlotte are around, there’s a serious problem.

Prediction: John Cena

Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton

Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton
Finally, the main event – the one people are actually looking forward to. They’re finally doing something with Ambrose. Unfortunately he’s going to come up short and probably eat the pin which sucks. And they’re still doing shit with Kane because that’s always a good sign. There’s going to be plenty of interference and in the end Rollins will retain.

Prediction: Seth Rollins

So hopefully this turns out good but we’ll see. My review will probably be late because I have plans that day and I’m not watching it live. But I’ll have a review and then soon after there will be some NXT Unstoppable predictions
