TJF Summerslam Predictions
Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
This is the match we have all been waiting to see since the end of last years Wrestlemania. I’m personally rooting for The Undertaker. I feel like Vince held off on having this match at Wrestlemania intentionally to build up hype for Summerslam. A sort of sloppy seconds if you will. Which kinda pisses me off. I feel like the build up for this could have been done at this years Wrestlemania, as opposed to the what is it, a 6 week build up. Brock took the streak after all. If ‘Taker loses, the loss of the streak was for nothing. If he wins, he pretty much doesn’t get anything in return except vengeance. I feel like it could have had more put into it. Who knows though, this could be the start of an ongoing fued. Like I said I’m rooting for the Undertaker. Guess we will see tonight!
Prediction: Undertaker wins
Title Unification Match: Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Champion) vs. John Cena (United States Champion)
This match just baffles me. I really don’t see Cena taking the Championship, not that he isn’t capable but that doesn’t feel like the direction WWE is trying to go with him.Who knows though, they are both amazing athletes and should have no problem selling this match, at least their spots. I feel like some sort of distraction or situation will pop up that keeps the US title in Cena‘s hands but Rollins wins. Pretty much defeating the whole point.
PREDICTION: Seth Rollins
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Ryback (c) vs. Big Show vs. The Miz
This feud has been dragged out so much. I’m not as excited about it as I was before, but I’m still kind of intrigued and I think it could be somewhat decent. It definitely has potential.
PREDICTION: Ryback retains.
Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper
This seems like a second take on the Wyatt Family and The Shield rivalry . If has the potential to be a real good match.If they can recreate even half of that magic here we are in for a treat and there is no reason they won’t if given the time.
PREDICTION: Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper
The Prime Time Players (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. Los Matadores
So this match has landed on the Pre-show instead of the actual PPV. Which is ok. This will be a good one to keep the flow into going live. I like the Prime Time Players and think they will take it. I think the feud itself is kinda stale. I hope the PTP retain and go onto a more hyped up traditional tag championship match.
PREDICTION: The champions retain.
Team Bella vs. Team BAD vs. Team PCB
NXT newcomers Sasha Banks, Charlotte and Becky Lynch giving the Divas division a much needed boost. I think this is going to be the sleeper match of Summerslam. Really looking forward to this one. I’m a big Paige,Charlotte and Becky Lynch fan and hope they get the W.
PREDICTION: Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch win.
Stephen Amell & Neville vs. Stardust & King Barrett
The Green Arrow and The Red Arrow versus Stardust and…King Barrett?Odd how they just threw King in there but whatever, this should be an entertaining match. Amell apparently has a background of some sort and Neville is amazing. Cody and Barrett will definitely give the crowd the show wants. Hopefully this doesn’t turn into another stale publicity stunt. I think this one will actually play out right though.
PREDICTION: Neville and Amell win.
Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro
Does this match get the bad draw of going on the pre-show or does it get a proper spot in the four hours? If this is given enough time, I could see it being one of the better matches of the night. This will be great to see a fresh match-up featuring moves and a style of wrestling rarely seen in WWE and the crowd will no doubt be appreciative of these two huge talents. Expect a jaw dropping performance from Cesaro, yet an equally impressive showing and victory for Owens.
PREDICTION: Kevin Owens wins.
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
Randy Orton defeated Sheamus in the bruising opening match of Battleground in The Viper’s hometown of St Louis, Missouri. Since then Orton has made sporadic appearances on TV, while Sheamus has continued to remind fans he is the holder of the coveted Money In The Bank briefcase. I’m going with the Irishman on this one. I’m just expecting a standard rematch with nothing special about it whatsoever. Lame.
PREDICTION: Sheamus wins.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
Dolph Ziggler and Rusev‘s feud this summer has been very stop/start due to Ziggler’s injury problems. Instead it has been carried by Rusev’s jealousy over his former valet Lana and replacing her with a copycat Summer Rae.It’s unfortunate that Lana and Summer Rae can’t be added in to make this a mixed tag match.
PREDICTION: Dolph Ziggler wins.
