I don’t know where I’m at with wrestling right now to be honest. At least for main roster WWE, that is. While there are a few good things happening, there’s just nothing really to grab onto right now. It’s been tough for a while now, but now with the whole Bellageddon situation happening…..Sigh. It’s pushed me over the edge. It really has. Maybe it’s just the straw that broke the camel’s back. Or maybe it’s just them burning a major bridge with me. Everything about the situation is just so inherently wrong but WWE doesn’t care. They went ahead and spat on the legacy of a woman who busted her ass for this company in favor of a talentless piece of trash. And that combined with hearing that they could potentially put the NXT Women’s title on Eva Marie is just sickening. Even though NXT is usually devoid of most of the problems that plague the main roster, that happening is a major enough misstep that WWE’s own saving grace could take a plunge too.
The preshow match of Neville and the Lucha Dragons vs. Cosmic Wasteland, Stardust and the Ascension, should be fun. I’m so happy the Ascension are doing something now – it might not be much – but I’m enjoying this tag team with Stardust. It just seems fun to me – they’re like comic book villains/henchmen.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
I’m not even sure I can be bothered to talk about this shit. I’ve paid almost no attention to this feud and I can’t imagine many others are. They can’t even do the mixed tag because Lana got hurt. I guess it makes the most sense for Rusev to go over then because without Lana being there too, Dolph being triumphant doesn’t do much.
Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and ? vs. The Wyatt Family
Hurray. More of this. The only interest I have is who is the third person. Rumors are Baron Corbin, Erick Rowan, The Rock, Daniel Bryan…. No real idea. If it’s Rowan or Bo Dallas they’re joining the Wyatts.
Prediction: The Wyatt Family
WWE Fourth Rate Women’s Championship
Nikki Bella (c) vs. Charlotte
Does anyone even care anymore? Really? I mean, I understand that they think it’ll mean more if Charlotte beats someone who “set a record.” I do. Unfortunately, the title reign has been god awful and it’s beaten most fans into either a state of indifference or a fit of rage. There’s no person in the world that’s happy about the state of the division or Nikki having such a long title reign. (Bella fans don’t count, they aren’t real people. They are monsters.) It’s gotten so bad I had to demote the Divas Title back down to the Fourth Rate Women’s Championship again – it hasn’t been there since Kelly Kelly held it. It’s so sad considering all of A.J.’s and Paige’s work to bring it back up to the Second Rate Women’s Championship (which is the best it can be), and then it dropped back to Third in November. They should just throw the title in the garbage, god knows it’s been on trash for so long that I don’t know if it can be disassociated with it. I wasn’t really one of the people who were all like “Bring the women’s title back” but now they really should. Or at least make a new design. The belt has always been a tire fire. And I don’t think Charlotte or any of the other NXT girls can save it. Granted Charlotte is the weakest of the NXT girls, but I’m not sure Sasha could even do it. Putting the belt on Charlotte is a start – but even though they’re going to now, how is that a real sign that the division will improve?
WWE Intercontinental Championship
Ryback (c) vs. Kevin Owens
Let’s just put it this way: If Owens can’t beat Ryback, then they’ve finally fucked up with Owens. I’m not happy he didn’t get the U.S. Title, but whatever. That being said, Ryback’s just Ryback. The reign’s been screwy because of his staph infection and being stuck with Big Show and Miz.
Prediction: Kevin Owens
WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) The New Day (c) vs. The Dudley Boyz
The New Day are quickly becoming favorites of mine and I love that the Dudleyz are back. It’s too early for the titles to switch, though, so the New Day will keep the belts it some screwy fashion.
Prediction: New Day
WWE U.S. Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. John Cena
Seth’s first of two title defenses on this show. And, I won’t have a problem either way. If Rollins keeps the title, I’ll be happy. And if he loses to Cena and the open challenges return, I’m fine with that too. But if he keeps the belt, he’d better keep both belts.
Prediction: John Cena
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Sting
I’m just hoping this will be good, really. If Sting wins, Sheamus is cashing in after or the next night. If Rollins wins, Sheamus could still do it. If he cashes in on Rollins, he’d better fail at his cash in. How about Rollins beats Cena, Sting, and Sheamus all in one night?
Prediction: Seth Rollins
Review Sunday. Hurray.
