The RAW View: Predictions for SummerSlam & NXT Takeover Brooklyn II
Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…
This is the RAW VIEW… my totally unqualified…. And I dare say…
UNWANTED predictions for NXT Takeover Brooklyn II and WWE SummerSlam
this weekend. The logic or lack there of for my selection is based on
my own personal preferences… and so you may disagree with me on a
lot of these. Still I would like to see your predictions, so leave
them in the comments section below.
says let’s get started with my predictions NXT Takeover… cause
that airs on Saturday…
Moon, formally known as Athena on the indy scene, is facing an
opponent to be named… and I suspect that the mystery opponent will
get the win. That seems to have been the trend in recent years.
picking No Way Jose to go over on Austin Aries, mainly because Jose
is a lot of fun, younger and has more of an upside than Aries does.
Besides a loss won’t hurt Aries who will probably be moved to RAW
for the Cruiserweight Division in the near future. Besides, if Aries
wins that would be too many ‘crowd friendly wins’ and Brooklyn
needs some salt rubbed into its wounds.
speaking of crowd friendly wins, I’m picking Johnny Gargano and
Tommaso Ciampa to take the NXT Tag Titles from the Revival… the
only chance I see this title switch not happening is if there are
‘issues’ as a result of Gargano defeating Ciampa in the
Cruiserweight classic episode that aired a couple of weeks ago.
I’m selecting Bobby Roode to make quick work of Andrade Almas, who
unlike No Way Jose, I don’t see much in, plus Roode has the
Glorious Bomb meme going for him.
true main event of the The Women’s Championship match for me is a
toss up, but I’m selecting Bayley to defeat Auska. Bayley is in a
unique spot, she’s main roster ready, but she is the biggest star
NXT has that can actually move merchandise. And Asuka is just
awesome, but I can see this extending out to one more Takeover for a
third match if Bayley wins… with Asuka winning an iron woman match.
in the final match, I’m picking Shinsuke Nakamura to defeat Samoa
Joe for the NXT title… cause, no reason, it’s not a match I’m
all that invested in cause I’m not a fan of either guy.
SummerSlam… in the Six-Starlet Tag putting Becky Lynch, Naomi and
Carmella against Natalya, Eva Marie and Alexa Bliss… I’m picking
the heels to win and with Eva Marie pinning Becky Lynch to just piss
Brooklyn off. Yes the very much untalented, universially dispised Eva
Marie pinning The Lass Kicker will get the crowd riled up something
the first of a best of seven series between Sheamus and Cesaro, I’m
picking Sheamus, We’ve already seen these two had two TV matches
past month, and with a best of seven, it’s better for the heel to
get the early advantage with the babyface making a comeback.
there is no chance in hell that Enzo Amore and Big Cass lose to Jay
and Silent Bob… I mean Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens… Brooklyn is
their backyard, and it’s a match result that makes the most logical
picking John Cena to make fairly quick work of AJ Styles, who now has
the excuse of Cena dumping his bony-redneck ass through a table on
this week’s SmackDown
also selecting Randy Orton to put down Brock Lesnar with an RKO and
score the win. Lesnar is tainted goods, he isn’t a draw and it’s
time for him to start putting guys over who are there every day.
the Women’s title match, I’m picking Sasha to retain over
Charlotte. I can see Charlotte winning, but it makes more sense for
Sasha to get the win since she just became champion a few weeks ago.
selecting The Club to take the Tag Titles from the New Days… it’s
not the best move, but it’s the only one that works since Big E was
taken out for the storyline.
am picking The Miz to retaing the IC title over Apollo Crews, because
they have had very limited interaction and it doesn’t make any
sense for Apollo to win now.
the US title match, since Reigns got a win on RAW clearnly over him,
I’m picking Rusev to retain, possibly by DQ
the WWE title, I’m selecting Dean Ambrose to retain the
Championship over the very bland and overrated Dolph Ziggler, who
really shouldn’t be the one facing Ambrose, cause there is now
where for Ziggler to go even if he wins.
for the Universal Championship…. I’m picking Finn Balor, cause
there is no way the WWE is stupid enough to have Finn lose as The
Demon King on his first PPV match. Then again, they were stupid
enough to have him appear on RAW in the gimmick before SummerSlam…
so anything is possible
there you go there are my predictions for NXT Takeover and
SummerSlam… till next time my friends and you are my friends, have
a good one.
