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 this video we show off how strong Braun Strowman is. This World’s Strongest Man competitor is a mountain of a man with a personality to match. He can dead life over 800 pounds, pick up a car and press over 350. He is a beast of a man and I wouldn’t want to piss him off! ENJOY! Braun is the man and hopefully, WWE doesn’t bury him after he loses finally to Roman Reigns.
The WWE Payback aired last night and it was a cluster Fu*k of epic proportions as it just seem clumsy and weird story lines that made really no sense to me. I’m not even going to go through the matches, as the crowd in San Diego made it even worse as they seemed to be in a church and super quiet though the night. First of all why send Jericho to SD?? why and why have The New Face Of America Owens lose his US Title after only a month….WTF….Jericho is going on tour soon with his band Fozzy. The House Of Horrors match was that Horrific….It was like a really bad 80’s horror movie. I was waiting for Jason or Michael Myers to pop out. It was just silly and should and could have been made better with better writing. Roman Reigns Vs. Braun….Why make your number 1 guy who owns the yard now after defeating the legend The Undertaker lose in his first match after The Taker match???? It makes no sense, I know its a buildup to a ambulance match on the next PPV, but they made Roman look weak. I expected better from the WWE after Mania, but this time of the year is usually a lul in WWE action till Summerslam. Time will tell where the WWE is going with these story lines. Time will tell……
On Sunday, the SAP Center in San Jose, California, will be witness to a clash of Monday Night Raw’s best coming off an historic WrestleMania.
With multiple rivals splitting because of the Superstar Shake-up, WWE Payback 2017 will be a night of final clashes between wrestlers who have been feuding since the beginning of the year.
Chief on the Payback card are the three headlining encounters. Roman Reigns returns to battle the man who tried to end his career, Braun Strowman. Bray Wyatt forces Randy Orton to step inside the House of Horrors to pay for his betrayal. And Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho put the final nail in the coffin of their friendship in one last battle for the United States Championship.
Seth Rollins Vs. Samoa Joe : This match will be brutal, but I can’t see either superstar losing so i’m going for a disqualification in this match.
Bayley Vs. Alexa Bliss : I think this match is wayyyy to rushed as Alexa just got to the Raw brand. Sorry Alexa but you will lose to Bayley at Payback .
Hardy Boyz Vs. Cesaro/Sheamus : The Hardyz have to go over Cesaro/Sheamus or lose it and start the broken angle that rumor has it , the WWE has won the right to use the trademark with the Hardyz. Winner = Hardyz!
Kevin Owens Vs. Chris Jericho : The end of the feud of the former best friends. Jericho will be gone soon, as he starts touring with his band Fozzy. Winner = Kevin Owens
Randy Orton Vs. Bray Wyatt : This will be a house of horrors match, and i’m thinking back to the Halloween Havoc shows in WCW. What will the house of horrors match include??? who knows, but I think Wyatt will lose with interference by the demon Finn Balor to ignite their Raw feud. Winner = Randy Orton
Roman Reigns Vs. Braun Stroman : This match I can’t see either one losing as they are both getting huge WWE pushes. Maybe a disqualification or something so both look strong in defeat. Or maybe Stroman destroys Roman and we are without Roman till Summerslam……
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
