So about Wrestlemania 35

The following is a cross-post from my Wrestling site, SquaredCircle.ie

So about Wrestlemania 35… It was brilliant! Well, about 95% of it anyway. The only match that let it down was the Baron Corbin vs Kurt Angle match. Other than that, it was a solid way to begin the 2019/2020 season of WWE.

Without further ado, let’s have a recap of last night’s show!

27

Has it been a year already?

It feels like yesterday that I wrote 26 but yet, here we are….27.

The past year has been a bit of a up and down for me and realisation of who I really am.
I am not going to flaunt that my 26th year has been great…It has in some cases, but at other times, it hasn’t and like anything else, it is very easy to focus on the negatives.

There is probably about 101 things that I have missed, but that is some of the highlights!

So what about 27?

Well, I don’t have any goals and I am not going to set any. Some things that are happening though.

  • I am going to Paris, France in February for the Final Fantasy XIV: Fan Festival
  • I am going to Iceland!

And outside of that, I am going to be ‘relaxing’. Work as I have been doing for the last 3 years with Blacknight, work on the Wressling blog and I am planning on starting a new blog in relation to Overwatch Esports for Season 2 of the Overwatch League. More info on that later.

And who knows, plans will change and I cannot plan for an entire year. I have just got to see where 27 takes me!

Much love!

WWE Super Show-Down PPV Predictions

The following is a cross-post from my Wressling blog at https://wressling.blog
Wressling.blog is a finalist in the Sports Category for the Blog Awards Ireland 2018.
More info about the event will be on my personal Twitter @PadraigFahy and of course my Wrestling Twitter: @Wressling_


From Melbourne, Australia, it is WWE Super Show-Down. These are my predictions for the upcoming PPV which is being shown at 10AM (UK/Irish time) on Saturday October 6th on the WWE Network!

The show is being held in the Melbourne Cricket Ground which normally hosts 100,000 people but I believe the numbers are close to 75,000.

With that said, let’s get into the predictions for this PPV.

WWE Summerslam 2018 PPV Predictions

Welcome everyone to my 3rd SummerSlam predictions. This year, once again, the show is being brought to you from the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York and this 6 hour show is STACKED to the hill!

So without any delay, let’s get into these predictions:

NON-TITLE MATCHES:
Tag Team Match (Kickoff Show)
Rusev & Lana vs Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega
PREDICTION: This feud has been more about Aiden English and whether he is going to turn on Rusev/Lana or maybe visa-versa but I have really enjoyed the build up to this match quite a bit and its really nice to see Zelina Vega inside a WWE ring performing rather than solely being a manager. Rusev & Lana to win.
Singles Match
Finn Bálor vs Constable Baron Corbin
PREDICTION: This is a rubber match from Extreme Rules and while this has been a comedic little feud, this is nothing but damaging for Finn as it is showing him to be a mid-carder and to be honest, he should be in the Universal Title scene as he was in that Universal Championship match this time 2 years ago! Finn to win!
Singles Match
Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
PREDICTION: This feud has been 8 years in the making since the original NXT gameshow and what a feud this has been and it is great that we are getting the blow-off match right now in 2018 and it is still shocking to see Daniel Bryan back in action. Daniel Bryan to win
Singles Match (If Braun loses, Kevin becomes Mr. Money in the Bank)
Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens
PREDICTION: This feud was started a bit too early as it seemed to have stretched from the early days of the build up of the Extreme Rules PPV in order for it to just be about the MITB case. I don’t expect Braun to lose this as he is just a tank (And a monster) and I think a few months without seeing KO will do no harm. 😉 Braun to win and retain his MITB case.
TITLE MATCHES:
Tag Team Match for the RAW Tag Team Championship (Kickoff Show)
The B-Team (C) vs The Revival
PREDICTION: The Revival have come out of nowhere and all of a sudden going against a remade The B-Team who have had their theme changed to a really crap song (in my opinion of course) and from the looks of things, they could be losing those titles really shortly as there isn’t anything more that they can do with those titles. The Revival to win!
Singles Match for the Cruiserweight Championship (Kickoff Show)
Cedric Alexander (C) vs Drew Gulak
PREDICTION: This will go down as a fantastic no matter what way that you look at it and I feel that they should be moved to the pre-show of NXT Takeover as they are that good of a match. Cedric is fantastic in the ring and Gulak is just as great in terms of promo. Cedric to retain the CW Championship.
Tag Team Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Bludgeon Brothers (C) vs The New Day
PREDICTION:The Bludgeon Brothers are by far the best dominant Tag Team in WWE today and I can see them go on to be a lot bigger (Hopefully they will get moved over to RAW at the next Shakeup), so I would like them to retain the titles for another few months. The Bludgeon Brothers to retain!
Singles Match for the United States Championship
Shinsuke Nakamura (C) vs Jeff Hardy
PREDICTION: The new “Enigmic” Jeff Hardy is here taking on Shinsuke, but he has to be careful to not get trapped by Randy Orton if he is lurking around. This feud has been pretty ‘meh’ so hopefully at Survivor Series, we hope to see something bigger. Shinsuke to retain.
Triple Threat for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
Carmella (C) vs Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch
PREDICTION: Right, a couple of predictions. Either Charlotte wins and Becky turns on her or Becky wins and Charlotte turns on her. Carmella is going to lose the title to Charlotte or Becky but I can’t really decide on whom is going to do what. I would love to see Becky win without any turning from with Carmella and Charlotte but who knows. Becky to win!
Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship 
Dolph Ziggler (C) vs Seth Rollins
PREDICTION: With the returning Dean Ambrose by Seth’s side, it evens the playing field when it comes to this match and I feel that Seth is ready to become the IC Champ once again. Hopefully at the next PPV, we will get Drew McIntyre vs Dean Ambrose. Seth to win.
Singles Match for the RAW Women’s Championship
Alexa Bliss (C) vs Ronda Rousey
PREDICTION: Well, you do not have to know wrestling as to what is going to be happening in this match. Simply put: Ronda to win the RAW Women’s Championship. The feud has been meh at best and I’m tired of chicken-shit-heel Alexa. It’s boring now. Let’s get some new faces winning.
Singles Match for the WWE Championship
AJ Styles (C) vs Samoa Joe
PREDICTION: This has been a rematch that has been a few years in the making with the last singles match that they had was back in 2012 in TNA. Now Joe has his sights on Styles and his WWE Championship. To be honest, AJ has done what he can with the WWE Championship and it wouldn’t hurt him if he lost the title and I can see Joe being a monster heel with this title. Samoa Joe to win.
Singles Match for the Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar (C) vs Roman Reigns
PREDICTION: Just like Alexa v Ronda…we know how this going to go. It’s the 4th match between Brock and Roman and at this point…I am sick of talking about it because of how trash the Universal Championship is in WWE. Just give the title to Roman and lets be done with it. Roman to win. 

 

And that is it. Apologies for the posts going up a bit late, but I have had a boat-load of work ahead of me and I didn’t get ample opportunity to get it done.

I am not going to be Live Tweeting the PPV but I hope that you follow on Twitter: @Wressling_ for when new posts get released! 🙂

WWE NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4 Predictions

The following is a cross-post from my dedicated Wrestling blog at https://wressling.blog


For the 4th time, WWE’s Yellow & Black brand, NXT is taking over the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York for the pre-Summerslam PPV.

Without further ado, let’s predict this PPV:

NON-TITLE MATCHES:
Single Match
EC3 vs The Velveteen Dream
PREDICTION: EC3 has been a breath of fresh air since appearing on NXT and a being in a high profile match against Dream can only accelerate his career and he can be on the main roster within a year which I would love to see. I love Dream’s matches and he will be exciting to watch. Velveteen Dream to win.
TITLE MATCHES:
NXT North American Championship Match
Adam Cole (C) vs Ricochet
PREDICTION: This should be one of the matches of the night (What am I saying, all the matches should be matches of the night 😛 ) but Ricochet is a fantastic wrestler and has the potential to make this match a 5 Star match. Adam Cole is a really good champion but he doesn’t need to have the title to be ‘big’. Ricochet to win the title.
NXT Tag Team Championship Match
The Undisputed ERA (C) vs Moustache Mountain
PREDICTION: ERA is probably the best tag team in wrestling today and between the 3 of them. They could hold the NXT Tag Team Championships for a very long time (Hopefully they will only lose them when they decide to go to the main roster) – In saying that, I do love Tyler Bate in Moustache Mountain and what they have achieved in the NXT UK division. I would like to see them take the titles and bring it with them to the NXT UK shows and put on a great performance there. Moustache Mountain to win the title. 
NXT Women’s Championship Match

Shayna Baszler (C)

vs Kairi Sane
PREDICTION: This is a re-match that has been a year in the making. A rematch of the initial Mae Young Classic tournament but this time, it is for the NXT Women’s Championship match. Kairi’s elbow is probably the best in the business but Shayna has great MMA skills that can help her retain the championship, Both of them are tough fighters so I would like to see them have a long match. Kairi Sane to win the title.
NXT Championship Match
Tomasso Ciampa (C) vs Johnny Gargano
PREDICTION: Well, this is the match that I have been looking for. These two have had the best fued in ALL of WWE for the last good few years and it is nice to see a conclusion to this. I predict that this is going to be a hard hitting match as we have seen in the last couple of matches that they have had and with that, I would love to see Johnny to come out on top and become the NEW NXT Champion. Johnny Gargano to win the title.

So there we go, I have ALL the titles change hands tonight as there is potential for call ups after Summerslam. Ciampa, ERA, Cross…Maybe a few more,..who knows.

I will more than likely NOT live tweeting the event this time but I am looking forward to it!
