Here are the predictions of the WNS Staff. Do you agree?
Predictions by Jeffrey Crosby
Kalisto VS Ryback
United States Title
Well, in this one I am going to write what I think should happen. Kalisto has a lot more to lose in this match than Ryback has to gain. What I mean is that Kalisto is given a huge boost because he is the US champion, but if Ryback wins it won’t really impact his character. It won’t mean anything. He will still be Ryback, but just Ryback with a belt. Plus, my personal opinion is that Ryback would look stupid with the US Title. Ryback hasn’t really done anything to deserve another title match in my opinion. I’m not hating on the guy. He seems to be getting a heel push and he has shown noticeable improvement in the ring. Bottom line is that Kalisto needs the W a lot more than Ryback.
Ziggler vs Baron Corbin
At this point I can’t really see Ziggler winning any high profile matches. It’s easy to see that WWE has no interest in giving Ziggler a push. He is basically a mid-card jobber. He gets the occasional big match win, but he isn’t really going anywhere. I remember that Corbin was red hot when he debuted but in this last year he has lost a little momentum in my opinion. He has had a lot of mediocre matches and I believe the WWE put Ziggler because he can put Corbin over and make him look great while doing it. This should definitely be one of Baron Corbin’s best matches.
Winner: Baron Corbin
Chris Jericho vs Dean Ambrose
This should be a good one. After a disappointing match (and loss) at WrestleMania I believe that Dean Ambrose is looking for redemption. Yeah as a character he obviously needs a PPV win. (Jericho doesn’t.) But because Ambrose is Ambrose he wants to redeem himself and put on a great match. At 45 Jericho is still capable of having great matches. After Jericho beat AJ Styles clean at WrestleMania he doesn’t need to prove anything. Winner: Dean Ambrose
Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn
This match is going to have some great technical spots in it, but don’t expect a wrestling clinic. Expect a war. These two are coming to fight. This will be a dangerous match, and in that environment I give the edge to KO. Every recent NXT call up can’t win on the same PPV card. The one to lose will be Sami Zayn. He will still be over with a loss to Owens. Owens will gain even more heat as a heel by destroying Sami Zayn in a fight that is more personal than business.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Enzo & Cass vs. Vaudevillains
WWE Tag Team Championship # 1 Contender’s Tournament Final
This will be a good match. Enzo and Big Cass are the favorites. The New Day vs Enzo & Cass has the potential to be the most entertaining tag team rivalry in a long time. Imagine the promos. I would love to see them win the WWE tag titles. Especially since they never won the NXT titles. Sorry Vaudevillians, but I am giving this one to Enzo & Cass, but it is a wishful prediction.
Winners: Enzo & Cass
Charlotte w/ Ric Flair vs. Natalya w/ Bret Hart
WWE Women’s Championship Match I have only watched one Women’s Championship match, and that was at Wrestlemania. They stole the show. I am excited for this match for two reasons: This match will be good because they are both solid in the ring and because I want this stupid feud to be over. Winner Charlotte
(Champion) The Miz w/ Maryse vs. Cesaro
This match is hard to call. First, Cesaro is returning from injury and is putting on great matches. Second, This title has already changed hands twice last month. I want the IC title to be prestigious again. I would love to see Cesaro as the IC champion. But, now is not the time. I have the Miz either winning cheaply or losing by DQ either way Miz retains the title.
(Champion) Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match Does anybody really think AJ Styles is going to win? I hope not. If the WWE wouldn’t allow Sting to win any matches I doubt they will just throw the title on AJ Styles. Is he going to get a good match out of Roman? No, there will be too much interference. The real question is will the bullet club turn on AJ Styles? I think that one is a yes.
Winner: Roman Reigns
