    I Predict!

    ~ Alexa Bitch will win the Women's MitB...mainly because the
    match is stacked with Faces & the WWE are too afraid to let
    Polly Pocket stand on her own without a belt or prop to make
    her look good...

    ~ Charlotte will most likely take a "Huge/Nasty" bump to write
    her off TV so she can have her breast(s) fixed...

    ~ The WWE will NOT have Bayley interfere in the match to
    stop Sasha from winning because it would make too much

    I mean we could have had Bayley in the actual match...but fuck
    what the fans want. Stick Natalya in there...

    ~ Rusev will most likely get involved in the match like Ellsworth
    did because the WWE creative want the fans to hate Rusev...

    ~ Rousey/Jax will be absolutely horrible...mainly because Nia
    is absolutely horrible...

    ~ Carmella will defeat Asuka...possibly with a roll up after a
    cash in distraction...because for some reason Carmella is
    getting a serious push now...even if it makes the rest of the
    entire division look like shit...

    ~ Nakamura will lose his 6 World title match because the WWE
    have & will never put their top title on a Japanese man...

    Then he can piss off back to NJPW because he's a loser who
    hasn't wrestled a decent match since he arrived on the main

    ~ Elias will most likely defeat Seth Rollins to become the Honky
    Tonk Man 2.0 because Rollins has too much momentum & is
    taking focus away from the Plank of Wood...

    ~ The crowd will most likely break out the Beach balls during
    Jinder vs. Plank of Wood...

    ~ Harper & Rowan will retain because Gallows & Anderson may
    as well be called "Taller Jobber & Jobber"

    ~ This will be my last WWE pay per view & show I watch for a
    very long time...

    The fact the WWE COULD have booked Lesnar vs. Lashley to
    main event this pay per view is just depressing...

    But Hey...whatever! Don't care & don't get worked!

  4. Women's MITB - Natalya makes the most sense to win, it can jump start a feud between Nattie and Ronda.. Much prefer Becky or Ember to win though.

    Men's MITB - Braun Strowman maybe?... Wouldn't be surprised if the Miz takes it.

    AJ vs. Shinsuke - AJ better retain and move on to Samoa Joe or somebody else.

    Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey - Neither should lose this match, they're trying to build Nia into a credible monster type character and there's no way Ronda should lose so soon in her career... Double DQ is my prediction

    Carmella vs. Asuka - Would love if Carmella pinned Asuka here just to see the reaction online.. but Asuka has lost so much momentum since WrestleMania.. Losing to Carmella would put the final nail in the coffin.

    Bludgeon Brothers vs. Anderson and Gallows - Harper and Rowan squash them.

    Seth Rollins vs. Elias - Seth is doing so much good with the IC Title, as much as i love Elias, it's best to keep the title on Seth Rollins.

    Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn - Bobby picks up the victory here in a feud that has the fans wondering what the fuck has WWE done with these guys.

    Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal - I hope these guys are ready for the fans to shit all over them.. RomanWinsLOL

    Bryan vs. Big Cass - Can go either way.. I'm picking Bryan in their final match, hopefully.
  5. Women's Money in the Bank: I would like to see Ember, though there is a downside to that, I am figuring Alexa might have a chance, but Natalaya wining it wouldn't surpise me as well to set up her vs Ronda, which is whatver. I will also predict Bayley interferes because we gotta work on that storyline that no one cares, and Charolette will take a nasty looking bump to have time off.

    Men's Money in the Bank: Braun could win it, which is whatever, and the other ones I could see wining would be The Miz, Samoa Joe, or even Kevin Owens. Rusev will takly not do a whole and this whole match will be nothing, but Rusev Day chants.

    AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura: Honestly, I am tired of this feud, which is quite sad, and I feel like this match will be let down just like the others. AJ should retain and move on

    Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey: Nia should win just for the lolz, but honestly Ronda will win in like 10 seconds

    Carmella vs. Asuka: Asuka should just destory Carmella in 5 seconds, but Carmella will reatin because screw pushing a talented wrestler

    Bludgeon Brothers vs. Anderson and Gallows: would love to see The Good Brothers win, but they won't because Jobbers gotta job, right.

    Seth Rollins vs. Elias: Seth should retain for several reasons, but Elias will become the new champion

    Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn: Bobby wins, lol

    Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal: CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK! is all that will be said during this match

    Daniel Bryan vs. Big Ass: Bryan because let this feud just end already

  6. I really don't think Alexa has a shot. If she wins i'll be stunned. Ember would be the best option to win this match.

  7. She has no character
  8. Oh I agree, Ember should win it amd is should be used to build her up, but then that means we may get Ronda vs Ember and I personally don't want to see that. I also said that Alexa had a slim chance of wining, in a sense, but like you I could see natayla wining as well.

  9. I can see any women having a chance at winning this, even Lana in a surprise victory.. That would be the dumbest fucking thing to do though. Ember winning would be a great way to start her career on the main roster, she's the best wrestler on the RAW roster. Has tons of potential and she can develop more of a personality as the year goes on with the briefcase.. She has a year to cash it in after all.

  10. God, if Lana wins WWE just wants their fans to be pissed at them, don't they, lol. I agree it would be one of the dumbest of fucking things WWE has done but look at the company we are talking about. It would be and the reason why I won't be mad if she does win, and she is one of the best women's wrestler on Raw and even WWE currently, so she deserves more, in my opinion. Yeah, I know she has a year to cash in, but realistically, biasedly and pessaramisticly looking Ronda will keep the title, if she does win, for a long time.
  11. You know what? If Becky, Asuka & Ronda all win their respective matches...
    I'll stop watching MST3K episodes & actually care about the WWE product again.

    If not...I'm fucking gone!

    The WWE doesn't care about its fans...they have proven that time & time
    again...and Lana winning...well...she might hey...Rusev might "Pull an Ellsworth"
    & that way the WWE can kill Rusev's momentum & stop the Rusev Day chants.
  12. Nah, I would continue watching MST3K episodes at least they are entertaining. WWE doesn't care about die-hard fans or whatever you want call them, or even wrestling fans, they care about casuals because casual just accept it. Also, you can't kill the Rusev Chants like you can't the CM PUNK! chants.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  13. WTF are you talking about? WWE don't care about hardcore fans because they will watch no matter what. Casual fans are the ones who don't accept shit. When WWE is shit, casual fans stop wrestling. When WWE o bad storylines the casual fans stop wrestling cuz they are only interested in watching a good product cuz they are not die hard
  14. I actually found a Becky Lynch action figure
    with a MitB briefcase accessory the other day.

    It made me smile...

    Then I realized it would never
    I frowned.

  15. Anybody but roman reigns. The end.
  16. A co-worker of mine was talking about how he loves old-school wrestling, and he bought the Network for a month to watch the Dusty-Flair special because he loved the storylines back in the day and how the common man was able to step up to the lavish billionaires. Great promos, enjoyable matches. It isn't that complicated.

    I told him to check out the Gargano/Ciampa feud. He really enjoyed it and wants to watch NXT regularly now.

    NXT caters to the casuals. Raw and Smackdown cater to the hardcores, really, because clearly they're trying to coast by on wrestling quality alone

    Actual post coming soon.

  17. Might as well kill some time doing this, despite not really following the builds to any of these matches.

    Ember Moon's my pick, mostly because I want her to win, I could see basically anyone walking out of her with the briefcase. Of the Raw roster, I feel like only Ember Moon is really likely, maybe Sasha Banks if they want to finally progress the Bayley/Banks feud past the point of both of them just screwing each-other out of victories so both wind up as losers but I don't know if that feud is even still a priority for them, if it ever was. Oh wait Natalya's on Raw and has a connection to Ronda, she might win this just based on that. I'm still hoping for Ember though, so I'll say her.

    This again seems like anyone's game, though far less than the Women's, so while someone like Braun Strowman could certainly win, I'm going with Joe.

    Going with Styles, if they were going to have Nakamura win the belt I figured they would've done it at Backlash. Instead, Styles is going to win it, it just feels inevitable. However, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Styles is not walking out of Money in the Bank WWE Champion and that Samoa Joe is cashing-in after the match. I distinctly recall that Joe made his WWE Championship intentions clear during the build of Shinsuke/Styles, before Backlash I believe. And I believe that Joe had the longest journey to qualifying in Money in the Bank, I could be wrong since he was the only one whose qualifier I paid attention to due to Daniel Bryan's involvement, but his qualification into the match was framed as a much bigger deal. And from what I read, he lost on SDL, and generally a lose on the go-home is a good indication of a victory at the PPV (albeit, less so in an eight man match environment). And of course, the Last Man Standing match is custom made to be cashed-in on afterward, plus WWE has a history of same night cash-in's (both Kane and Ambrose have done it before iirc), and it's a pretty easy way to transition between feuds for Styles.

    Ronda Rousey. Ronda's a better long-term and short-term prospect than Nia Jax so having Nia losing here only makes sense. I think the worst case scenario here is to have Nia beat Ronda clean, it's way too soon. And it's probably way too soon for this match in general, but that's a topic for another time.

    Carmella's leaving with the Championship but I can see Asuka winning the match via DQ or something leading to an Extreme Rules encounter where Asuka wins. As for how, I don't know. If the rumors about Ellsworth are true, he's probably the reason though it doesn't make much sense for him to be aiding Carmella considering she Superkick'd his ass on his way out of the company. I could see Ellsworth try and screw Carmella out of the title but botches it so bad and gets Asuka DQ'd, or accidentally hits Asuka, getting Carmella DQ'd and Asuka pissed off so she murders him then and there. This could lead to like a Steel Cage at Extreme Rules or something.

    I don't know, they can't be booking towards a clean victory from Carmella. So much of the build to this match has been reinforcing Asuka as the dominant competitor she was prior to her first loss, hence her winning in handicap matches and scoring the victory in the ten woman tag.

    The Bludgeon Brothers are squashing the Good Brothers because that's what they do.

    WWE will swerve us and have The Good Brothers defeat The Bludgeon Brothers.

    Rollins shouldn't be dropping the championship anytime soon here.

    Lashley will win for his Sisters and his right to wear a flat cap. Jinder Mahal will win in boring Jinder Mahal screw-job fashion in an attempt to get fans to cheer for Roman when the feud continues and Roman inevitable gets his win back. Bryan will win against Cass because Cass beat up a midget without permission and Bryan should be moving to [figuratively] bigger things.​

  18. Let me give being Grievous a shot...

    Women's MITB feels like it's too predictable. All the buildup says Natalya's winning, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's to set up either a future challenger or a swerve. With Rousey going into the UFC HOF, plans could change here and a lady from SDL could take home the briefcase... but all of this just seems odd.

    The one thing I can see happening is Natalya winning and doing the Seth Rollins cash-in to make it a triple-threat, just for Nia to pin her. Because sometimes you have to fantasy book what sucks the most because don't tell me that's not a likely scenario. Anyway I'm predicting a clean Rousey win in the Raw Women's title match.

    Onto SDL, many are calling Ellsworth interfering and causing Carmella the match... Let me do the opposite here and just predict them to do the right thing. Asuka proves she's still dominant over the mouthy broad and wins clean as a sheet, because I'm tired of this. In all the divisions. I get that in 2018 the good workers are naturally the best babyfaces but you can't have your quality talent facing cans in every match. Asuka vs Charlotte rematch please. Asuka vs Becky please. Asuka vs Naomi please. Turn her heel, I don't care, can we get some matchups that sound good with this loaded roster you have?

    Speaking of, Bryan vs Joe please. Bryan vs Styles please. Bryan vs Nakamura please. Even though these have happened on Smackdown I'd still love to see some rematches. Let Big Cass take an L here and go to Main Event for a while.

    As for the men's MITB, I'm predicting Miz and think it'll be a good call, but think the New Day member should win, because... I don't like MITB going to either damaged characters, untalented wrestlers (when compared to the main eventers), or someone who can just be named #1 contender anyway. I like the idea of Big E or Kofi sneaking in the ME scene.

    While a lot of people look at Zayn vs Lashley (prediction. Lashley. Know everyone's upset about him being booked the way he is, but anyone remember in 2014 when Sami Zayn was an obvious choice for the next top babyface of the company? Like some people say Lashley should be? Hell. I would book a double turn here.) as the worst booked feud, my vote goes to Hardy and Wyatt vs the B Team. This is why I like the Dakota Kai storyline on NXT going the way it is. She'll get hers someday just like Bayley did, but you had to wait a year for Bayley and it was worth every single day that you did. Watching the damn B-Team go from nobodies beating other nobodies to fluke-winning a battle royal to squashing dudes to #1 contenders in 4 weeks is the opposite of that. It's a shame Raw doesn't have any other tag teams (hashtag remember the revival) to spend as opponents for now while building up the B-Team in the background... Speaking of. Raw is 3 Hours Long. Three fucking hours of Raw and you can't come up with any cool segments with WOKEN MATT AND BRAY WYATT. Go to the Hardy compound if you want. Hell let Hardy say weird shit over a ghost lantern in the ring I don't care do something

    Speaking of tag titles Bludgies retain, next

    Seth Rollins and Elias has one good outcome, I think. Elias exploits the injured neck of Rollins and brutalizes the guy, winning the belt relatively clean and getting a truckload of heat as a vicious heel, then you blow over the rematch on Raw as an extended injury angle and then let a recovering Rollins face Reigns for the #1 contendership and get an amazing underdog win and be the best conquering hero ever.

    All I can say about Roman vs Jinder is to echo Solid Snake. There are many recent WWE PPV's that should have been a couple of hours. I get why Dominion was 5 1/2 hours long, with their style, the length of the main events, the intermission, etc. There is no excuse for this card being 4 hours. Most recent 3 hour PPV's would have been better at 2. Just make Roman look strong and hit three superman punches in 10 seconds and pin him. Because just like this preview, this show's going to run out of gas and you'll just want to pass out most of the way through. Can I stop typing yet? lol

    It'll be interesting to see how Styles vs Nakamura goes, btw. Figure Rousey will main event, but hey, I can't really predict this one but we'll see how it goes.
  19. I predict the entire pay per view will be a complete mess
    with the results tailor booked to guarantee most of the
    WWE fans with an I.Q higher than that of a dung beetle
    are annoyed & pissed off by the time the show is over.

    Knowing the WWE...

    Carmella will pin Asuka thanks to the returning Blobfish...
    Alexa Bitch with win the MitB briefcase thanks to Mickie James...
    Ronda vs. Nia will end in a no contest...


    I actually physically hate wrestling just the thought of
    it makes me feel sick...and the thought of fans defending the poor
    booking makes me feel even sicker...
