Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match: Ambrose has had his fun the last few weeks, but Rollins wins and regains possession of the belt.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: I think Roman Reigns makes the most sense, and it gives WWE a year to feel comfortable with him, allowing him to cash in whenever they're ready to pull the trigger.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens: I'll say Cena wins, but it'll be a disqualification or something like that. I don't think he beats Owens cleanly.
Ryback vs. Big Show, WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: I liked Ryback winning the Chamber match and I think he's fine as champion for now, so he wins and retains (even though they already did the big spot, the Shell Shock on Big Show, on Raw).
Nikki Bella vs. Paige, WWE Divas Championship Match: The announcers have really been pushing the number of days Nikki has been champion, so I think she retains. With Paige's speech on Smackdown wanting to change things, I don't know where they go with that if she loses, though.
New Day vs. The Prime Time Players, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: New Day retains as well, but I could see PTP getting a short reign.
@gregmparks - live Tweeting of Raw and Impact, wrestling thoughts and other slices of life.
Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match: They've hit pretty much all of their Greatest Hits playbook throughout Rollins' entire title run so far, but the one that they've yet to hit is the "Make it look like there's dissension, but everyone comes back together at the PPV to win, then reveal on Monday that they're stronger and better than ever, until next week where they tease dissension again" angle. I need to come up with a shorter name for that. Anyway, Kane chokeslams Ambrose, because God forbid Rollins look any kind of self-reliant or competent. Rollins retains.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: They're starting to tease that Roman's the guy that hasn't won the big one, so now's as good a time as any to have him win the big one. Reigns wins.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens: Toughest call of the night by a mile. At this point, beating Owens is going to be a big deal and they'd be insane to waste that on John Cena. But at the same time, I can't see Cena jobbing clean twice in a row. I'm going with a DQ finish here, with Owens sensing defeat and destroying Cena with a chair to give Cena the DQ win. Owens hits the apron powerbomb post-match to send Cena on a short vacation.
Ryback vs. Big Show, WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: They're doing pretty well with Ryback right now and this win could make him seem legit. Ryback wins clean.
Nikki Bella vs. Paige, WWE Divas Championship Match: geemoney notes that the announce team is mentioning the length of Nikki's reign and that has me convinced that they're going to try and scrub AJ from the record books, just to be completely petty. That means Nikki retains.
New Day vs. The Prime Time Players, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Prime Time Losers have worked hard, but they are who they are and I think New Day retains.
I'm getting PPV exhaustion. Luckily, MITB is usually a good one.
Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose, WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match: Rollins. He's been booked to look way too weak and he gets yet another win over Dean Ambrose. I think they're still going with Rollins defending against Lesnar at SummerSlam in some way (or another triple threat).
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Reigns. He's the only one that really works here.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens: Owens should win, since they've already had him beat Cena clean and there's no need to undo that now. Owens should cheat this time, though, because they really need to keep Owens a heel with heat and he's getting good heel reactions still, even against Cena.
Ryback vs. Big Show, WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Ryback.
Nikki Bella vs. Paige, WWE Divas Championship Match: Nikki, I guess.
New Day vs. The Prime Time Players, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: New Day.
Rollins Reigns (Kane's the only other guy that makes any sense, and man, wouldn't that be a waste of the briefcase) Cena (I feel like a third match between these two should be a no-brainer) Ryback Paige New Day Barrett
Originally posted by texasranger9Dean Ambrose wins the title. They need a big moment for the network only shows. This leads to a July 4th Supershow win back for Rollins.
Just to comment on this.. Rollins isn't going to be at the July 4th show. They're running a second house show on that day, which is currently advertising Rollins, Reigns, Wyatt and The Ryback. Ambrose is the wild card, as I haven't seen him advertised for either show, so his fate in this match will determine if the WWE Title goes to Japan or Canada on Independence Day.
One random question. I see where this month is free too. Now I haven't taken advantage of any of the 3 free months, but if your product is so good, why do you give it away for free?
You could try asking Netflix that? They offer a free month for would-be subscribers too, and I hear they're doing okay.
Originally posted by El NastioMoney in the Bank Ladder Match: I have to think the Kofi/Brock thing in Japan means something. Kofi.
The story is that Brock is going to Japan because he wants to visit Masa Saito and by working a show, he'll have his transportation paid for and be able to write the entire trip off as a business expense.
Getting ready to head to Columbus for the weekend to see this one live, my second live PPV of the year after the extreme mixed-bag (but insane live experience that was the Royal Rumble). Get your wife into wrestling, folks. It's a good decision.
MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH Roman Reigns vs Randy Orton vs Sheamus vs Dolph Ziggler vs Neville vs Kofi Kingston vs Kane What a lackluster lineup this one is. Neville and Kingston will both do entertaining, crazy things but the rest of this seems designed to keep the crowd from getting too invested in a potential winner that isn't Roman Reigns and getting another Rumble on their hands. (The only other truly credible winner is Randy Orton and he's The Least Interesting Man In The World. There are interesting storyline ways to go with both Kofi and Kane but neither of them are winning this. Neville is way too new to be in the world title picture yet and Dolph Ziggler doesn't win anything. I guess giving it to Sheamus is something they would do but I'm not nearly nihilistic enough to suggest that such a world is even possible.) It is crazy to me that this match only has seven people in it when Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Luke Harper and Stardust all aren't on the card.
(Oh, and there's a teeny, tiny part of myself that believes - or wants to believe - that midway through the match, BROCK LESNAR's music hits, he annihilates everybody, leaves with the fucking briefcase and they spend the time between now and Summerslam with Paul Heyman and The Authority hashing out if that "counts" or not to justify why Brock doesn't cash it in immediately and murder Seth Rollins.)
LADDER MATCH FOR THE WWE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP Seth Rollins (C) VS Dean Ambrose I listed this one second because I think - after a tremendous match (these two tore it up in a LUMBERJACK match last year - I can't wait to see what they do with a ladder), when the smoke clears, the new Mr. Money In The Bank Roman Reigns is going to be holding the belt. The question is, does he turn it into a triple threat (where he will get booed for screwing Ambrose even if that's not the company's intention) or will he wait until Rollins cheats his way to a victory? OR will he wait until AMBROSE wins the belt, fuck his "best friend" over, steal his title and start the heel turn that will finally make him the star the company wants? I'm, obviously, voting for #3 but betting on #1.
Kevin Owens vs John Cena Remember when Rusev was a thing? He was this almost invincible old-school undefeated monster Red Menace heel. Nuclear heat. A future world champion for sure. Fights John Cena at Fastlane and...the company does the right thing! The growing monster heel beat the established top superstar who has long since been at the point where it was time to start giving back and building the next generation to the top of the card. And what happened next? That's right - John Cena beat him three times in a row in increasingly silly matches and now he's Lana's sad ex-boyfriend. I'd love to believe that Kevin Owens is going to be the exception to this rule because, you know, he's the best in the fucking world - but Owens being that good makes him a legitimate threat and John Cena's career has been built on doing what's best for John Cena and not the company and then hiding behind sick kids and pretending like he was in the military when he gets called on it. John Cena wins, clean in the middle of the ring with the AA. He beats him again in the rubber match at Battleground and then in some stupid gimmick match at Summerslam and then AGAIN in a nothing match on RAW in a few months to build to Cena's title match at Hell In A Cell with Heel Roman Reigns. (Cena loses that match, only to beat him for the title a month later and then win three rematches.) Owens moves on to a lackluster feud with Ziggler that he barely wins and spends the rest of the year tussling endlessly with Big Show. Sami Zayn makes his main roster debut early in 2016 and they reignite the feud heading into the Royal Rumble but JBL says they're a bunch of small-time dorks acting like people care about their history on the main stage and no one does and Michael Cole agrees while Booker T talks to himself. They are both unceremoniously eliminated ten minutes into the Rumble by Kane. By the end of 2016, Owens is in a comedy tag team with Damien Sandow, jobbing to Enzo and Cass on Superstars. By the end of 2017, he's getting WELCOME BACK chants in Ring of Honor. El Generico is the Lucha Underground champion. Anyway, yeah, Cena wins.
I'd love to be wrong.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH The New Day (C) vs The Prime Time Players I love the PTP but The New Day is way too hot to take the belts off of now.
DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Nikki Bella (C) vs Paige Same thing I predict every month where Nikki retains to ultimately put over a Seriously Has To Debut Soon Right? Charlotte where I get the match result right but the Charlotte part wrong.
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Ryback (C) vs The Big Show I go buy a Kevin Owens shirt and come back when I hear them play Ryback's music again.
PRESHOW MATCH King Barrett vs R-Truth Barrett never beats anybody (and the story there could pretty much begin with "Remember when The Nexus was a thing?") and even though R-Truth should probably be an exception, he isn't.
