Last night, WWE presented its summer show Summerslam LIVE at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. The show was a solid show throughout, with a really strong and exciting kick off match with The New Day Vs. The Usos. The Usos are new Smackdown Tag Team champions, but both teams fought tough. Other highlights of the card was the Sheamus/Cesaro Vs. Ambrose/Rollins which I really enjoyed and we got NEW Raw champions with Ambrose/Rollins. The Fatal four way, was a fun and good match. Braun Stroman is a MONSTER, as he threw the announce desk on the helpless Brock Lesnar. I can’t wait to see these two in the ring together. Here are some video highlights of the night :
Well it’s that time of year again…Time for WWE Summerslam, the WWE event of the summer. This years Summerslam takes place again at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. This is the third year that Summerslam is coming from The Barclays Center. I like the buildup of this event, as it feels like a big event feel. The card is stacked and I think we are going to get a really good show. Here are my predictions , of what is going to go down tonight. Join us HERE tomorrow for our Summerslam Recap!!!
- The New Day Vs. The Uso’s : The New Day are newly crowned champs, and I see them holding onto the titles for a lil while longer. The Uso’s time has come and gone and I think they need to split up . Winner = New Day Rocks!!
- Big Show Vs. Big Cass (Enzo Amore locked in shark cage) : Rumor has it that Enzo and Cass will reunite here as HEEL tag team and destroy The Big Show in the process. I could see that happening , as Big Cass on his own is zzzzzzz. Winner = Big Cass
- Cesaro/Sheamus Vs. Ambrose/Rollins : I like the reformation of the shield with Ambrose and Rollins , and their whole WE are not friends storyline. I could see Ambrose/Rollins winning and then arguing the whole time through their title run, until they are friends again . Winner = Ambrose/Rollins
- AJ Styles Vs. Kevin Owens : I’m going with Kevin Owens , just because Shane Mcmahon is special guest referee, and i’m a big Kevin Owens fan. Or Shane might screw over Owens leading to a Shane Vs. Owens match at Survivor Series. ….. Winner = Kevin Owens .
- Finn Balor Vs. Bray Wyatt : This might be a surprise match of the night, as these two can go and get nasty and evil…I see The Demon destroying Wyatt. Winner = Finn Balor .
- John Cena Vs. Baron Corbin : Baron just lost his Money In The Bank briefcase match this past week, so a Corbin win is in the cards as Super Cena doesn’t need the win and Corbin needs it …Winner = Baron Corbin .
- Jinder Mahal Vs. Nakamura : Good match, and I like having Mahal as champion. Its too early for Nakamura, its his first title match and he needs a lil bit more buildup. Nakamura will hold the title , and probably before the end of the year but now it belongs to Mahal . Winner = Jinder Mahal
- Lesnar Vs. Reigns Vs. Joe Vs. Strowman : It’s Strowman’s time and his time is TONIGHT. I see a break in Brock’s future with WWE , as rumors circulate that he wants to return to UFC. The buildup to Strowman has been strong. I see Strowman winning, then maybe at Royal Rumble Brock wins and challenges Strowman for the title at Mania…..Winner = Braunnnn Strowman!!!

In what will be a shocking turn of events, CM Punk has reportedly received and signed a deal for a WWE appearance.
While details are not available at this time, pro wrestling reporter Dave Meltzer says that it is not a contract, but rather “an agreement to make a small amount of appearances for some undetermined dates.”
For wrestling fans everywhere, this is a start. Opening the doors after exiting the company back in January 2014 is exactly what many have been waiting for. While this does not mean that a full time schedule is in “The Straight Edge Superstar’s” future, it mends that their broken relationship is on the mend.
Speculation is that CM Punk is to make some kind of return at this year’s SummerSlam, “seeing how things go.” Punk was very vocal in his reason for leaving, and it is possible that he wants to see if things will be different this next time around. A limited agreement between the two, therefore is perfect for Punk, who may want to ease back in a little at a time, before commiting to a long term situation that would mirror the same creative concerns that he had before.
Either way, for CM Punk to be seen once again on WWE programming is now certain, even though to what capacity at this time is unknown.
The WWE presents its first aptly named Great Balls Of Fire show on Sunday night. The buildup has been well done for this show , as Raw has been stepping it up these past weeks. Here are our predictions of what is going to happen on the show :
- Alexa Bliss Vs. Sasha Banks : I like the bad diva Bliss as champion , and having all the divas fighting her is a interesting storyline. Sasha had her time with Charlotte, its time for someone new . Winner = Alexa Bliss.
- Seth Rollins Vs. Bray Wyatt : A pretty much throw away match , as both really don’t have a beef with each other. Not sure why WWE is doing this match and not Finn Balor Vs. Wyatt, maybe they need something for Seth , as he has a new WWE movie coming out in August. Winner = Bray Wyatt.
- The Miz Vs. Dean Ambrose ; In their 300th match together I see The Miz winning over Ambrose, as I like the buildup of The Miz. Winner = The Miz
- Neville Vs. Tozawa : I like Tozawa , but its still too early for him to win the cruiserweight title, but give it time and it will be around his waist if the WWE plays it right. Winner = Neville
- Sheamus/Cesaro Vs. The Hardy Boyz : This is a Iron man match, and I see the beginning of the Broken Hardy Boyz in this match. Sheamus/Cesaro are on a tear in WWE , and I don’t see them losing so quick. Rumor has it that the WWE wants the Hardys to have more separate matches. Winner = Sheamus/Cesaro
- Roman Reigns Vs. Braun Stroman : This is a ambulance match, will WWE superman Reigns beat the monster. I think Stroman will go over Reigns in this match, as rumor has it that WWE wants Stroman to go against either Brock Lesnar or Samoa Joe. Winner = Braun Stroman
- Brock Lesnar Vs. Samoa Joe : As this is the first match between the two heavyweights, I see maybe a DQ or some interference maybe with Stroman. This is a feud that can keep on going for at least till after Summerslam. Winner = Nobody……….
The thirty third annual Wrestlemania is done and in the history books. This Wrestlemania had the feeling of a big event , as the Wrestlemanias in the past felt more like big glorified Monday Night Raw shows. This had the big event feel, where you couldn’t figure what was going to happen next. Now i’m changing formats today, as I am reviewing the show as a whole instead of going to review all the matches at the event.
There was good storytelling throughout the show, that made sense to either build a story line or end a story line. I always think of Mania, as either the end of season for some WWE stories or a brand new season for some. This Wrestlemania had both.
The match of the night was most definite The Undertaker Vs. Roman Reigns, as the old dog was taken out of his YARD by the new dog. This was a perfect send off for The Undertaker, as he left his hat and coat in the ring. It was a great passing of the torch story line that WWE is great in telling. It will be interesting to see what WWE does with Reigns.
All in all, Wrestlemania lived up to the hype and delivered the goods. Well done WWE well done, now keep it up…………
The day has finally arrived…..Wrestlemania 33 is upon us….Coming live from Camping World Stadium in Orlando Florida , WWE Wrestlemania will be another night of history. It all kicks off at 5pm with the pre-show on WWE Network and then the show goes LIVE on WWE Network and PPV around the world at 7pm EST. Here are the predictions of the major matches at Mania :
- Andre The Giant Battle Royal : Of all the people involved, I see Braun Stroman or Sami Zayn taking it all this year . Stroman is the latest WWE monster and Zayn is the upcoming superstar.
- Gallow/Anderson Vs. Sheamus/Cesaro vs. Enzo/Cass : Enzo/Cass are over with the fans and I think , they deserve their Wrestlemania moment. As this is a ladder match, expect lots of craziness involved with all superstars. Winner = Enzo/Cass
- Bayley Vs. Charlotte Vs. Sasha Banks Vs. Nia Jax : As Bailey is a life long WWE fan , I think its fair to finally give her a Wrestlemania moment with a pinfall victory over her “friend” Sasha Banks. I see a heel turn of Sasha at the end of the match, as she congratulates Bailey on her victory. Winner = Bailey!
- Aj Styles Vs. Shane Mcmahon : This match is going to be nuts, as I see Shane jumping off a lot of things around the Wrestlemania set for this match . But a Shane win will really do nothing for both performers, so I’m going with a AJ Styles win . Winner = AJ Styles.
- Seth Rollins Vs. Triple H : Triple H always has a match at Mania, and this one is no exception. I see a brutal match happening between the two, but I see Rollins finally getting his revenge on his mentor. Should be brutal . Winner = Seth Rollins
- Bray Wyatt Vs. Randy Orton : I hope Bray could over come the viper to keep the title, as I am a big Bray Wyatt fan . I think we’ve seen way to many Age Of Orton’s and its time for Bray to have his Mania moment . Winner = Bray Wyatt
- Chris Jericho Vs. Kevin Owens : The two former best friends will battle it out at Mania. Jericho is scheduled to start touring with his band Fozzy, after Mania so I see a Owens wins . Winner = Kevin Owens
- Goldberg Vs. Lesnar . Another squash match with Lesnar getting the victory in maybe a minute. Winner = Brock Lesnar
- Undertaker Vs. Roman Reigns : I wish they would have kept the streak alive for The Undertaker as he is a true legend. Many say that this will be The Undertakers last match and I wish he was ending his career with a battle with John Cena than Roman Reigns. The Big Dog will triumph over The Undertaker , but the deadman might just have one or two last rides left in him . Don’t ever count The Undertaker out. Winner = Roman Reigns
