Payback 2016: Predictions

Payback

Pre Show:

United States Championship Match: Kalisto (c) v Ryback: So in a rematch (in a way) from WrestleMania since a few weeks afterwards Ryback beat Kalisto in a non-title match means that we’re getting another match. Usually I want to root for the underdog in this match but for this time round I am actually going to side with Ryback on this point. One of the reasons that I am going to side with Ryback is because there could be a side where Kalisto could be possibly injured after the match that the Lucha Dragons had against the Dudley Boys in the Tag Team Tournament. He seemed to be injured but I don’t think that it could be serious plus with Ryback as a champion he could be put in a position where he could open up the Open Challenge which I have been missing from Raw since John Cena lost the title last year.

Main Card:

Dolph Ziggler v Baron Corbin: This seems to be a match that seemed to come pretty much out of nowhere, other than the outcome of the Post-Mania match that these two had that ended in a double count out. I really don’t care that much about this match to be honest since that there doesn’t seem much that could come out of the result of this match but for a winner I am going to say Corbin is going to win since he seems to have a bigger role to play since being a current call up.

Tag Team Match #1 Contender for the WWE Tag Team ChampionshipEnzo Amore and Colin Cassady v The Vaudevillans: Well I think that this is going to be a rather good tag team match that we could see after the rather disappointment that we got from WrestleMania. We have two rather great tag teams called up from NXT that have had good matches since being called up especially with Enzo and Cass who seemed to get over amazing well with the live crowds on Raw and Smackdown plus they even knocked off one of WWE greatest Tag Teams of all time The Dudley Boys. I have seen some of the matches from The Vaudevillains and they too are a pretty good team but I think that Enzo and Cass are going to get the win and then face off against The New Day. I have a small chance that this match could take place on the Pre Show and then having the winners fight on the main card against the New Day, but I think that the match will be on Raw the next night.

WWE Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte (c) with Ric Flair v Natalya with Bret Hart: Well I am really looking forward for this match since the fact that this is going to be something good and pretty much a rematch from NXT a few years ago. From the match that they had just on Raw I am really rooting for Natalya to win this match since that I am rather getting tired of Charlotte winning matches because of the ‘cheating’ that she has used with the help of Ric Flair since that WWE are trying to push her as the new dirtiest player in the game. This is why I am glad that Natalya revealed that her uncle Bret Hart is going to be in her corner for the match and this then does give Natalya an edge in the match for Bret to keep an eye on Flair so that he doesn’t help Charlotte to cheat. But the winner I am going with is Natalya.

Sami Zayne v Kevin Owens: Well it would eventually would have came down to this seeing Zayne face off against Owens on a main stage, which should have taken place at WrestleMania instead of that ridiculous ladder match. I am not going into that much detail with this since that anyone who knows the relationship, just in NXT between these two knows why this match ended up happening. I get the feeling that this match is going to have a lot of good spots in it, even though that this is a regular match and that we are likely to get a follow up at Extreme Rules. I am going to predict that Zayne is going to win this match.

Dean Ambrose v Chris Jericho: So this does seem that it can be a really good match since that you have a person who should have won at the last event and a person that should have lost at the last event. From what I’ve seen from Smackdown and Raw I think that this can be a well told match, they’ve had a lot of good back and forth on the mic and this could carry on well to the match. I really do want to see Ambrose win this match since I do see him as a main event attraction since he hasn’t had a large amount of PPV wins for a while since he held the United States Championship when the SHIELD was still around. I really do wish that they would use Jericho more a person to put over younger talent because I think that would be a good use of a part timer wrestler.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: The Miz (c) w/ Maryse v Cesaro: Oh boy is this not how I thought that this was going to be arranged, but before I would say who I am going to think would win I am going to say how they could have booked this better. First since that Zack Ryder lost the belt and the rematch I think that he should have went back on Raw and attacked Miz on Miz TV and then you have Maryse try and interfere in the fight then you have Emma come down and attack Maryse, that way you have a even playing field with Emma being in Zack’s corner, they could then lead down the road to the PPV and possibly have a mixed tag match, if Maryse is legitimately back to wrestle or even for one night then have a final match at Payback where Ryder would get the win and have his payback. But for this I am going to go with Cesaro for the win for this match since The Miz in my point doesn’t seem that good of a champion.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) v AJ Styles: Now going in to this I already have a prediction on who is going to win and that is Reigns is going to win the match. But he is going to win it non-cleanly. What I think is going to happen is that Styles is going to have the upper hand through most of the match then Gallows and Anderson are going to make an appearance. They are going to interfere in the match but they are not going to be the ones that would cost Styles the match. The lights go out and Finn Balor’s music hits and he appears behind Styles and throws up the sign. Styles throws it up to but then Balor attacks Styles and hits the 1916 on Styles and throws the gun sign over Styles. Reigns gets the cover and the match ends with Balor, Anderson and Gallows standing over Styles in the ring.

My Secret War

For the past few weeks I have been in something of a personal dilemma on if I even want to be continuing on this blog since that I have been dealing with a load of personal problems and that it has been coming quite a big problem for me. 

I have always wanted to do something rather good with this blog since that for my first plan that I wanted to do that being vlogging but then that blew up in my face, then I tried creating another channel that I wanted to do with creating content but then again I managed to f— that up even more since that after seeing the problems that I’ve seen happen I have basically decided to throw that away. When I started this I never knew where I wanted this to go and frankly at this point I don’t even know if I even want to continue even with it past this post.

I think that one of the reasons that I find with my problems is that I have been suffering from a lot of personal problems. There have been a lot of times where I just didn’t even want to write blogs at all. I took a large four or five month break because I felt stressed out trying to come up with blogs that I wrote that are pretty much are all broken and incomplete that it took me to roughly November I think to put out a post.

I also have a feeling that another reason why I have these personal problems is because it feels that I have no idea on who to talk to about any of the problems that I have going on in my personal life. Since most of my friends seem to live quite a distance away from me and they all have things going on with themselves and I always just think that they wouldn’t need something else to clog up their own lives. But over social media I have been putting up statuses that do hint towards something’s but nobody cares on actually asking if there is anything wrong with me.

A lot of the times I wonder what my life would have been like if I did things differently, I wonder what my life would have been like if I never made the biggest mistake in my life and fell for the wrong girl who pretty much crushed my heart. I might have been a completely different person as of this moment, I may have found the right person for me but as of this moment it is still something that has bothered me for the past three years.  

I do wish that I had people to talk to about my personal problems since with all the news about people dying has me feeling rather depressed with my life and that I think by having somebody to outlet myself to somebody who would be willing to listen to me because I get a bad feeling that if I don’t end up getting my feelings out that I am going to end up doing something that I am going to really regret later this year.

I hope that with this blog that at least somebody tries to get in touch with me through this post. But hopefully by the weekend I should be back to writing the 101st blog that was supposed to be my 100th.

WrestleMania 32 Predictions

Well it has been two years since I started doing these predictions for WWE PPV and this could be quite a PPV that could end up going wrong, and possibly a lot of good fan reactions for the next night on Raw.

Pre Show:

8 Diva Tag Team Match: Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Natalia, Paige and Eva Marie v Lana, Cameron, Tamina, Summer Rae and Emma: My god is this a really pointless and filler match that WWE somehow have been scrapped together. I still don’t even know the reason why there is a rivalry between Lana and Brie Bella and I really don’t even care, it just again seems like pointless filler. Faces will go over.

The Usos v The Dudley Boyz: So this didn’t seem that much of a decent rivalry since the fact that this match was originally on the main card and now has been pushed onto the pre show which really does shows how much faith that WWE currently has on this match and second that they need to have more tag teams on the main roster. This just seems to be a complete filler of a match as well as a rivalry and it just seems like another match that I don’t really care about it since that there isn’t much that I think can happen for either team after this match. Dudley Boyz for the win.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: So I think that this could be rather strange match since there is barely anyone left on the roster since most of the roster is either on the card or they are out injured. So in theory I don’t think that this is going to be that much of a good match. I mean you have Big Show, Kane and the Social Outcasts being the ones that have had the rather bigger push on who was in the match. However I believe that there are going to be a few surprise entrance of possible NXT talent, since there is no talent left or maybe even a returning wrestlers like Cesaro. But I think that it could be a member of the Social Outcasts or Kane that wins the match.

Main Card:

AJ Styles v Chris Jericho: So here we go with the another match between Styles and Jericho and I get the feeling, I don’t want to sound negative, I don’t think it could be good as what the previous matches are since the fact that they have been rather back and forth after Royal Rumble and they seem to know more of each other’s moves and I don’t think that it is going to be that special of a match. But there is one thing that I would like to see in this match and that is for Jericho to take a Styles Clash since for the fact that I believe that Jericho is smart enough on how to safely take the move and for it to be a pretty good highlight for AJ Styles who I think is going to get the win and hopefully will be put in a mid-card title picture.

WWE Intercontinental Championship 7 Man Ladder Match: Kevin Owens (C) v Sami Zayn v Dolph Ziggler v Stardust v The Miz v Sin Cara v Zack Ryder:                                  What a way to ruin what could have been a pretty much a good singles rivalry match between Owens and Zayn WWE by putting five other wrestlers into the mix, some of them probably not even deserving of a title shot. I think that there just trying to cash in on what happened after last year’s bout that saw Daniel Bryan win, to the vacate the title, so hopefully this won’t happen this year. This would have been better as a singles match mainly for the fact, like what happened last year fans will be probably be bored with the usual spots that we would expect from a ladder match, someone being put through a ladder after a high risk move, someone close to the belt being pushed off the ladder and possibly this could end up seeing Sin Cara off television again since that he seems to be injured every time that he is put in a ladder match environment. To go out on a limb I am going to say that either Owens is going to retain or that Ziggler is going to win, but I am favouring more to Owens.

 

4-3 Handicap Match: The New Day (C) v The League of Nations:                                         Well this is sure a surprise to me to see WWE making a match where The New Day are the ones on the other end of the extra man advantage. I think that it is a stroke of genius on the side of creative for them since this now makes New Day seem more like an anti-hero stable for the fans to cheer and boo then it is to have two heel teams face off against each other. Also I think that this also a lot of good creativity done on both the side of New Day since that after Raw on 21/3 they seemed to be pretty much over with the crowed and I really want some Booty-O’s. But I do have one problem and that is on the side of League of Nations and that is I think that they have been rather naff since Royal Rumble. They don’t seem to be getting that over with the crowd and I think that they do seem rather wasted, especially with Wade Barret since that he could be leaving the company possibly after WrestleMania and ever since Rusev got buried by John Cena and possibly punished for the leaks last year with TMZ he hasn’t been well since then. Del Rio seems like he just there and Sheamus is just there to be hated. With what could be going on behind the scenes I think that New Day are going to get the win.

 

WWE United States Championship Match: Kalisto (C) v Ryback:                                               I really wish that half the roster was back to full health because I think that if it was this match could have been better. Not to say that I think that either wrestler is bad, it because I think that it seems more of an unmatched fight. You have a best way to put it a cruiserweight fighting against a giant ape of a person that seems to flip flop more times than what Big Show does. In a realistic world I really don’t think that Kalisto would have a chance at all against Ryback however I think that WWE would want to see Kalisto keep the belt for a bit of a run until someone healthy could come along.

 

WWE Divas Championship Triple Threat Match: Charlotte (C) (w/ Ric Flair) v Sasha Banks v Becky Lynch:                                                                                                                          Well I had a feeling that this match was going to happen at one point when they brought these three up from NXT and I have a feeling that this could be possibly a show stealer if it’s done right and that they don’t fall the for the same spots usual triple threat matches happen where they take out one person and then have one-on-one for a bit since that gets boring rather fast. But I think that there could be a rather good chance that we could see a title change either here and if it does happen I think that Sasha would win at Mania since I think that she is willing to do more to win then what Becky would be. However if Charlotte was to retain the title I think that she is going to lose it on Raw the following night.

 

Hell in a Cell Match: Shane McMahon v The Undertaker:                                                          So after Fast Lane, I never expected that Shane McMahon would have ever returned to WWE since that he has been making a name for himself in other parts of the world and staying far away from WWE. His shoot during his return was spot on and it is such a fresh change to see a face figure returning to WWE that is more business side than wrestling. Then we got a few big shocks during the segment for the return and then during the episode of Raw on 21/3, the first was that Shane was back to collect on a debt where he wants control of Monday Night Raw, two Vince then issues a challenge to Shane where he would have to face a person of Vince’s choosing which turns out to be The Undertaker, third Vince then says that the match type will be a Hell in a Cell match. This is just freaking insane to arrange a match like this, then on Raw 21/3 Vince had put quite a ultimatum for the Undertaker for this match where if he were to lose to Shane then to quote Vince ‘be the last WrestleMania for the Undertaker’. I get the feeling that there are going to be a rather lot of good spots in this match and I get the feeling that there could be a chance that there will be a large spot for Shane since that he is rather infamous since that he has had numerous matches where he has had a lot of great spots in PPV history such as his Last Man Standing Match at Backlash 2001 or the insane drop he took at Summerslam 2000, Shane is willing to take risks and if anything was to go from the go home episode of Raw when he put the Undertaker through the announce table anything can be possible and I hope that this time we see something that will be nominated for a Slammy this year. For the win I am going to say that Shane will win it since then that way there can be a lot of really good storylines that can spiral off that could then see Triple H using NXT to bring more people up to the main roster or even another brand split.

No Holds Barred Street Fight Match: Dean Ambrose v Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman): So I decided to watch a young Dean Ambrose wrestle in a company before he joined WWE before I wrote this since that there have been a lot of segments that seems to be at least being a call back to what Ambrose used to do and that was some of the most extreme spots that I have seen since ECW (the proper ECW not the mess that WWE was putting out at that time) and I am really curious on how far WWE will let these two go. I mean it is a Street Fight but there are usually limits to it, at best I do see the likely hood of seeing Ambrose and Lesnar being busted open that just seems likely but hopefully they can do it right and less obvious like what had happened with Roman Reigns and Byron Saxton earlier this month. But for this match I do really want to see Ambrose win this match mainly for the fact that this is pretty much a match that does cater more for Ambrose and I don’t really want to see Lesnar win again. I know that his whole gimmick is being a ‘prize fighter’ but it is boring and that it seems like that they can only do matches that can be on main PPV’s , yet I think that what WWE could do and is have Lesnar use to get over other wrestlers cause I think that these two can put on a really good match and we could see Ambrose possibly headlining Payback. But for this match I see Ambrose winning it.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Triple H (C) v Roman Reigns:               Well I already do have a pick on who I think is going to win this match and that is that this could be a interesting match and that the entrance for this can be rather well put together depending if they go on the side where they do another big blockbuster film for entrances (possibly Batman v Superman) and I think that it would be pretty interesting to see. But for the match I think like the previous matches I think that it could be a really well told match since that Triple H can put over people rather well. However I really don’t think that Reigns even has a chance in this match and I think that Triple H is going to win for this theory that I have, Triple H is holding going to be holding the title until a worthy challenger that can get over rather well with Triple H and that can go over well with the crowds since that there has been a lot of problems with Reigns going over with the crowd around pretty much everywhere, which is possibly down to WWE not giving him that much control with how he would control his character, but there have been some segments where the Reigns that people liked came back but I still don’t have that much hope for him winning. I get the feeling that I know who Triple H is going to be holding on that belt for and that is Seth Rollins, since he is on the route to recovery and there could be a chance that we could see him making an appearance at WrestleMania, possibly informing people that he could be returning soon and then we could see Rollins then take place back in the title in a really good match against Triple H down the road since he didn’t lose the title. So Triple H is going to retain but he’s going to put Reigns over in a rather good match.
