So this month’s predictions are going to be for Night of Champions, a PPV dedicated to having only title matches on the card to now evolve out to now feature rivalry matches with this one having three non title matches.
Pre-Show: Neville & The Lucha Dragons v Stardust & The Ascension
This seems like it was a pointless feud between Stardust and Neville spiralling off the outcome of last month match at SummerSlam where Stardust and King Barret lost to Neville and Stephen Amell. I think that this is going to be a win for the Neville and Lucha Dragons, it’s going mainly for the speed aspect and that there could be a altercation that causes all six to be in the ring at the same time and then the win comes out of that with Neville hitting the Red Arrow on Stardust, hopefully ending this rivalry.
WWE Tag Team Title Match: The New Day v The Dudley Boyz
Since returning to WWE in the past few weeks the Dudleys have shown a lot of domination by beating teams like Los Matadores and even sending a I think one member of The New Day through a table. On the other hand I don’t think that the Dudleys will win the titles in this match mainly because of one thing and that is the man advantage that New Day has the one man advantage on the outside and this could be easily the way that they win the titles, unless the Dudleys have a man in the back pocket such as oh say Spike Dudley though unlikely that being, it would be nice to see Spike back in WWE. But in the end New Day win by a distraction but somebody will be going through a table leading to a Table match at next month’s PPV.
Dolph Ziggler v Rusev
I hate this rivalry so much mainly for the fact that this should have ended last month and had both of these wrestlers move on. I think the original concept of this match was that it was going to be a mixed tag match but I think that those plans were nixed after Lana got injured a few weeks ago requiring surgery and she would be out for a few weeks. I really don’t care that much of the outcome since its probable is going to continue over the next week’s but to say a name I think Rusev will win leading to the rubber band match.
Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Mystery Partner v The Wyatt Family
This match does seem that it looks rather interesting on paper. You have the Wyatt Family who have been rather dominant over Ambrose and Reigns since Battleground and I think that this could change especially with this match for one, we don’t know who the third person in for Ambrose and Reigns especially since one person was Jimmy Uso who had been doing commentary on Smackdown was going to be the third man, but the Wyatts took him out and they then kept their mouths shut on who was going to be their third partner and the only thing I could guess is that the third person is going to be pulled from the NXT ranks since the third member of the Wyatt Family was brought up to the main roster as a replacement for Luke Harper. If I had to guess who they are bringing up I’d say either Samoa Joe or Finn Balor, for the outcome I’d say that Ambrose and Reigns will get the win with the help of their third man again like the Rusev/Ziggler leading to a third and final match at the next PPV.
Divas Title Match: Niki Bella v Charlotte
This match seems rather interesting especially with the stipulations that being if Niki gets disqualified or counted out she loses the title. But there is a good way for Niki to get out of this is to have somebody on her team to get Charlotte disqualified. But if this is going to be a straight forward match I think that Charlotte can actually beat Niki, especially since she’s already beat Brie so that’s a plus. Also Charlotte has a lot of fury in her after the outcome of the match that happened on Raw where Niki and Brie did twin magic and the match was nixed causing Niki to become longest reigning champion, overraking AJ Lee and the worst thing is that WWE should have had her defend the title more that 5 times at a PPV instead of holding the title up in boring tag matches that seem to go nowhere. Winner Charlotte.
Intercontinental Title Match: Ryback v Kevin Owens
This match just seemed to come out if no where. You have Ryback who has been defending the title successfully in not it a triple threat match against two former WWE champions but also in single matches on Raw and Smackdown showing that he is a defending champion. Then we have Kevin Owens who has came of a win/loose matches against John Cena and a win over Cesaro at SummerSlam. Owens has a load of potential to actually win this match since he is used to the big title matches especially fighting Cena for the US Title and Finn Balor for the NXT Title. But for going for a winner I am.going to pick Ryback, he’s been on quite a winning streak so far and I see him keeping the title for the next few months.
United States Title Match: Seth Rollins v John Cena
With Cena initiation his rematch clause for Night of Champions after being screwed by John Stewart for him not wanting Cena to overtake/tie Ric Flair World Title reigns. I think that Cena can win this match especially since that Rollins has to do double duty by defending the WWE title against Sting. The only way that I could see Rollins getting a win is if there is either a disqualification or Rollins just books it and waits for his match with Sting. But of that doesn’t happen Cena will get the title back and we could probabalies see the return of the US Open challenge since I do like that segment on Raw since it did showcase a lot of good matches such as the matches Cena had against Sami Zayn and Cesaro. So I would like to see Cena win just to get that segment back.
WWE Title Match: Seth Rollins v Sting
So this is a really weird match, one it’s Sting in only his second WWE match and that it is for a World Title after one segment on Raw. But I think that it’s going to be a rather decent match between the two since its two different styles facing off, however I think that Rollins can have the upper hand depending on the outcome of his match with Cena and if he has any other aces up his sleeve such as Triple H interfering in the match. But overall I still think that Rollins will regain the title. However I think that WWE made a real mistake with the booking if this match and what they should have done was have a triple threat match, Rollins v Cena v Sting, and have both titles on the line in a two fall match, such as what they did at WrestleMania 16 with Angle/Jericho/Benoit where they had a triple threat two fall match for the European title and Intercontinental title. That way you could at least have a good 25-35 minute match and a higher chance for a person to walk away with a title.
Nevertheless I think the show will be an okay one and fans will get a thrill for the mystery partner as long as nobody has spoiled through internet articles.
