Welcome back to your now bi-monthly-ish prediction series for WWE Pay-Per-View’s.
This time, it is Monday Night RAW’s turn with their exclusive PPV, Extreme Rules.
Once again, we do not see the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar which is still a massive shame and (in my opinion) is de-valuing the title putting the Intercontinental Championship in the forefront.
So let’s go!
- (C) = Champions
- Bold = WINNER
- My Prediction
Rich Swann & Sasha Banks vs Noam Dar & Alicia Fox – PREDICTION: Rich Swann & Sasha Banks – Swann and Banks is a unlikely duo and if Sasha was to lose, this would be burying her. Fox and Dar do not need this win whatsoever.
Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Bálor vs Samoa Joe vs Bray Wyatt for the Number 1 Contendership for the WWE Universal Championship – PREDICTION: Finn Bálor – Finn needs to get back into the title picture as he never lost the title and I am not ready for any of the others to have a chance at the Universal Championship. Should be a fun match and a potential Match of the Night…so this is one to watch!
Alexa Bliss (C) vs Bayley for the RAW Women’s Championship – PREDICTION: Alexa Bliss to retain. Bliss has been a great heel in this ‘fued’ with Bayley and it really shows when it comes to the promos. The promo on the 29-5-17 RAW of “This was your life”, while cringy, was brilliant heat for Alexa. Bayley could pull this out of the bag and win, but I highly doubt it. I expect interference from a NXT call up (Bit of a stretch though)
The Hardy Boyz (C) vs Sheamus & Cesaro for the RAW Tag Team Championship – PREDICTION: The Hardy Boyz to retain. Shesaro cannot win. They are terrible heels and they can’t cut a good promo what-so-ever as heels. While I want Cesaro to have a push, the Tag Team scene is not for him. He needs the push with either the IC belt or the Universal Title.
Neville (C) vs Austin Aries for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship – PREDICTION: Austin Aries to win. Neville tapped out on the 30-5-17 205Live to A-Double and this is just a insight that he is going to tap out again at Extreme Rules. Neville is a great champion, but a new champion is needed.
Dean Ambrose (C) vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship – PREDICTION: Dean Ambrose to retain. This is a very simple prediction. It has been a great fued between the two and which we have had before, but I would like to see a new competitor for the belt after this match.
And that is that. Should be a fun and interesting PPV and hopefully this will be the start of Finn Balor getting back to his championship ways!
I’ll be watching on Taima this Sunday night at 1am BST at http://taima.tv/r/sc !
