Another show and another bunch of mostly correct guessing from our panel!
Let’s meet our esteemed panel…
Chad French: I write about wrestling on this website. I also enjoy Pabst Blue Ribbon in a non-ironic way. Possible drinking problem.
Drewcifer Jones: Co-host of The Road Home From Wrestling podcast and all around swell guy.
Anthony Harper: Lifelong wrestling fan,new father and a Cubs supporter from back when that meant something.
Dave Dynasty: Host of the Dave Dynasty Show and huge Pro Wrestling fan. Also a lover of paperboy style hats.
Lee G: Journalist. Reporter. Pro Wrestling Enthusiast. Maker & Owner of Lee G News. Cincinnati Reds fan. ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage is Lord.
Jamie B: Another lifelong wrestling fan and brings a woman’s touch to this bunch of weirdos.
Josh Martin: Another lifelong fan, good dude and huge NJPW mark.
and now our latest contributor…
Travis D: Lifelong wrestling and horror fan responsible for the
#IndyPowerRankings and Drunken Horror Adventures.
WWE Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Kevin Owens
Chad French: As much as I would love to see KO as WWE Champion I think we are getting Bryan/Kofi at the big show. I really hope we get a Sami appearance costing his buddy the win so we can have one of the greatest feuds ever at Mania with the roles reversed.
Drewcifer Jones: Daniel Bryan will retain the title one way or another. I expect some outside involvement in the form of a returning Sami Zayn or maybe Bray Wyatt.
Anthony Harper: Bryan only because he has to have the title for Mania, if the Kofi match is to happen.
Lee G: Kevin Owens. I’ll be pulling for him too!
Jamie B: It’s a shame we have to wait for Kofi Kingston to get a title shot, but I can’t complain about Owens returning to take his place. Really pulling for Owens to pull out a victory here.
Josh Martin: Kofi costs Owens the title, hopefully going heel.
Dave Dynasty: Daniel Bryan.
Travis D: Daniel Bryan retains via Rowan chicanery.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch (If Becky wins, she gets added to Raw Women’s Title Match at WrestleMania)
Chad French: Becky will win and we will have completed the longest possible way to get to a match.
Drewcifer Jones: I think Flair wins and Becky will have to find an alternate means to get into the mania match.
Anthony Harper: Becky by DQ because no way Ronda stays out of this match.
Lee G: The Man!!!
Jamie B: We already know Lynch will win and be added to the Mania match. I wish a win also meant Charlotte was back out.
Josh Martin: Rousey beats the shit out of both women, we get a no contest and the triple threat.
Dave Dynasty: Becky Lynch… duh…
Travis D: Becky wins with Ronda interference (because Ronda wants to make sure she gets her hands on Becky at Mania)
The Shield vs. Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley
Chad French: If Dean is actually leaving (which who knows at this point) would they give him a huge money feud with Roman on the way out? I wouldn’t. I’m going to say they go with the happy ending on this show. We may get shenanigans on Raw Monday.
Drewcifer Jones: The Shield wins. I’m really sad we couldn’t get at least one Blue Brothers reference during this angle though.
Anthony Harper: Why are they a trio? Makes 0 sense. I want to say The Shield, but with Rush and Elias, I’m not sure someone doesn’t get involved. Screw it… The Shield!
Lee G: The Shield will win this match for the fans. But I’ll be checking out Drew and Bobby. They’re getting pushed right now.
Jamie B: I love a good Shield reunion, but this one felt too forced. Regardless, I’m excited they are back together for now. I think Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre steal the win.
Josh Martin: Shield loses, probably because of Dean.
Dave Dynasty: The Shield… can’t mess up a feel good story can they?
Travis D: Corbin and Crew after Ambrose turns on Reigns.
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Miz & Shane McMahon
Chad French: I am all about babyface Miz right now so when they lose (The Usos somehow are always in prime placement for reigns they may not deserve) I hope it’s because of the evil jerk son of the billionaire owner. Bonus points if Shane cuts the stupid hair of Poppa Miz.
Drewcifer Jones: Usos win. Miz and Shane finally turn on each other. I expect Shane to be the antagonist in this story.
Anthony Harper: Admittedly, I haven’t been able to catch much Smackdown lately, so I’m just surprised this is still a thing. The Usos.
Lee G: The Usos. They deserve a PPV title defense.
Jamie B: I’m here for anything involving the Miz’s dad. I’m not big on he and Shane holding the titles, but I think they may get one over on the Usos tonight.
Josh Martin: Usos.
Dave Dynasty: The Uso’s… ugh they need to mix it up!
Travis D: The Usos retain (leading to Miz and Shane feuding)
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Nia Jax & Tamina
Chad French: Sasha has never defended a belt on the main roster but maybe having a defense against two of the worst they got will earn her one.
Drewcifer Jones: I think Nia and Tamina are going to win this one. Sadly….
Anthony Harper: Jax and Tamina win as Banks never gets to hold a freaking title.
Lee G: Nia Jax & Tamina (for the culture!)
Jamie B: Banks and Bayley were the predictable win for the Women’s Tag titles. I imagine they aren’t going to lose them too quickly.
Josh Martin: Huggers.
Dave Dynasty: Banks and Bayley
Travis D: Sasha and Bayley retain
SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Mandy Rose
Chad French: I think Asuka retains here so they can feed her to “Miss Sexy Gloves” at Mania.
Drewcifer Jones: Mandy Rose wins I think this will be a rematch at mania.
Anthony Harper: Asuka, if there’s any justice in the wrestling world.
Lee G: ASUKA’s gonna kill you!
Jamie B: Asuka scared us recently with a bad fall at a house show. I hope she’s truly okay as she says, because she deserves a lot more out of this title reign. She will retain tonight.
Josh Martin: Asuka.
Dave Dynasty: Asuka… shouldn’t even be a match!
Travis D: Asuka retains
Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival vs. Aleister Black & Ricochet vs. Chad Gable & Bobby Roode (Triple Threat Match)
Chad French: Roode and Gable bore me to tears. The NXT two will have bigger and better things available. I hope this means that the best team on the roster actually gets to retain…and on a PPV none the less!
Drewcifer Jones: Wow. I didn’t know this was a match. This will be really good. It must be a triple threat so that Gable and Roode can win without pinning any of the new guys. Gable and Roode win.
Anthony Harper: Black and Ricochet, I’ve been oddly impressed by these two as a team.
Lee G: Aleister Black & Ricochet
Jamie B: I’m pretty excited about this match. Recently debuting Black and Ricochet have been looking on point, I think they may be our new tag champions.
Josh Martin: Revival.
Dave Dynasty: The Revival… let them have a run!
Travis D: The Revival retain pinning either Gable or Roode
Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade (Kickoff Match)
Chad French: Anyone else notice that giant human shaped hole on the other side of Rey? Like they are adding someone else in but were too lazy to make it not obvious. If it’s hust the two announced I’ll take Andrade because he needs it and Rey is bulletproof. If not I pick Randy Hardy Rusev for the win.
Drewcifer Jones: Who’s turn is it to win in this exciting but story less feud? I’ll guess Andrade.
Anthony Harper: Andrade no reason besides it’s a kickoff match and he needs it more.
Lee G: – The King of Mystery
Jamie B: It’s a shame to put this on the preshow kickoff show given what we’ve seen from these two. I’m guessing we get a DQ finish thanks to Randy Orton.
Josh Martin: Andrade.
Dave Dynasty: Mysterio… and match of the night!
Travis D: Rey Mysterio wins and gets attacked again post-match
I think we are all looking forward to Sunday and to see how right and or wrong that we were. Thanks to everyone for reading and please come back soon!
