Neville vs. Akira Tozawa for the Cruiserweight Championship (Preshow)
If Neville loses this title to anybody in a one on one match I will be amazed. Whilst this will be a very good match, Neville is 100% certain to win.
Enzo Amore vs Big Cass
This feud has been perfectly booked: let Enzo deliver platinum promo and platinum promo, whilst Big Cass looks 7 foot tall. I think this feud carries over into Summerslam so they can “settle” their differences in Brooklyn. For that reason, and that reason only, Big Cass does not win. Either Enzo wins or Cass gets disqualified.
Seth Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt
Does this match have a storyline? No, seriously, does it? Sadly this feud is destined to bore us until Hell in a Cell. Rollins will win here, because Wyatt will seemingly never win an important match.
Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship
I never thought I’d care less about a Sasha Banks feud, but this is what happens when you don’t get secondary story lines for the women to keep them relevant. Clealry the plan is for Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss to face off at Summerslam so Bliss wins here.
Cesaro and Sheamus vs. The Hardy Boyz in an Iron Man match for the Raw Tag Team Championships
It seems that the WWE watched NJPW’s recent Dominion show: the tag team action that night was utterly excellent and they need to respond. These two teams will tell a great story within the ring, but the work itself will be largely handled by the excellent Sheamus and Cesaro. This is a very long match for a tag-team bout, enough time for a broken costume change? I expect the Hardy Boyz to win here, purely because Sheamus is to have time off this month.
The Miz vs. Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship
Anybody else bored by this feud? Both are excellent but its about time that Ambrose turned heel. The Miz wins thanks to his goonies and moves on to Finn Balor.
Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns in an Ambulance match
Back at the Royal Rumble I would have bet against me saying this, but, I love Braun Strowman. They know they have money here so I can’t see Strowman being booked poorly. I see a triple threat match at Summerslam between these two and Lesnar for the Universal title, so… a draw? If I have to pick I’m going for Roman though: they just love their superman!
Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe for the Universal Championship
I’ve wanted this match for years, and it hasn’t disappointed. Somoa Joe will come out of this thing looking like a million dollars but Brock will still win. I’m expecting a twenty minute match with a lot of close finishes.
Is this the most predictable card of the year? Let me know and follow my Facebook page.
