So this Friday at 11:00AM Central begins an off PPV Event from Saudi Arabia for the first time. Although this basically looks identical to the WM34 card. I don't expect much to happen, but lets break down the card and our predictions.
SDLive Tag Team Championship Match
The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs The Usos
I don't expect them to only keep the straps on TBB for this short period of time. Makes no sense. I expect TBB to come out on top and continue their push to build them as a credible team.
WINNERS: The Bludgeon Brothers retain.
RAW Tag Team Championship Match
"WOKEN" Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt vs The BAR
After the draft I dont expect them to throw us a swerve and make someone go back to their original brand. So expect "WOKEN TEAM" to get the straps and get this push to see how far they can go with it.
WINNERS: "WOKEN" Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt
United States Championship Match
Jeff Hardy (c) vs Jinder Mahal
Again another brand swap. Unless they throw us a swerve and give Jinder the strap and swap the IC title with the Miz or Joe. But I dont see them keeping the strap on Seth for that short period of time and for them to have both titles on 1 brand. Some of these matches are no brainers.
WINNER: Jeff Hardy retain title stays on SDLive.
Intercontinental Championship Fatal 4 Way Match
Seth Rollins (c) vs The Miz vs Finn Balor vs Samoa Joe
So like discussed in previous match, I dont expect such a quick change. If they swap one of the mid card straps they need to swap both.
WINNER: Seth "Burn it Down" Rollins keeps the strap.
Cruiserweight Championship Match
Cedric Alexander (c) vs TBD
So tonight they will announce who CA will face. Which more than likely will be Mustafa Ali.....BUT Buddy Murphy has inserted himself into this feud. I expect this to be the swerve. This match if it becomes a 3 way may steal the show! At least either a solo match with Mustafa or a 3 way with Murphy. I still again think they cant take the strap off of Alexander that fast.
WINNER: Cedric Alexander holds on.
John Cena vs Triple H
This will be interesting. Will Triple H do the job to the leaving Cena or will Cena continue doing jobs and worsen his legacy with a loss to the old and aged HHH. This will be the most interesting match of the card. I think and hope Cena comes on top.
WINNER: John Cena
The Undertaker vs Rusev
Its sad to see that Rusev gets booked to be buried by Taker. I dont expect Taker to win at WM34 then loose 3 weeks later at GRR? Again not sure what that work was pulling Rusev off then adding him again? Just very sad to see he took this match just to get buried. RUSEV DAY has the hottest thing going and their handling its completely wrong. I think the WWE didnt expect this thing to get so HUGE! The Power of the Universe and Social Media. Expect a quick match!
WINNER: The Undertaker
WWE Championship Match
AJ Styles (c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura
Again Im going back to Vince not liking Nak as a top tier guy. With the addition of Joe on SDLive this can be intriguing and I can see them swapping titles since Nak is a heel now. Time will tell. But my gut says AJ. Dont be surprised if Nak takes it.
WINNER: A.J. Styles to retain.
Universal Championship Steel Cage Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs Roman Reigns
His lose at WM34 was to keep putting Reigns over. Lesnar has to leave for his fight for UFC but no one knows the timeline. I can also see Vince still trying to sell Lesnar as a baby face and have him annihilated at GRR. But fingers are pointing to Lesnar leaving........so the strap may finally go to Reigns. That way Lesnar fights his UFC fight and then comes back to fued with Lashley. We can only possibly hope that Paul Heyman turns and goes with Reigns but rumors are circling that he will be paired with Rousey once Lesnar leaves for his UFC fight.
WINNER: Roman Reigns wins the title.
