1 – NEVILLE & THE LUCHA DRAGONS VS. STARDUST & THE ASCENSION (KICKOFF MATCH)
Stardust lost the big important SummerSlam match, and I see this culminating in a Survivor Series freakshow battle, so I’m gonna say we see a rare win for the hapless trio of Stardust and The Ascension.
2 – WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE NEW DAY VS. THE DUDLEY BOYZ
The New Day is pure gold right now and there’s no way they drop the straps within a month. I think they cheat to beat the Dudleys here with a rematch happening next month. The Dudley Boyz will get one last run with the tag belts, but it needs to build longer than this.
3 – DOLPH ZIGGLER VS. RUSEV
This feud was already kind of a dud, and now it’s missing Lana, so I say Ziggler wins this and both guys quietly move onto better feuds. They can’t possibly have a worse one.
4 – DEAN AMBROSE, ROMAN REIGNS AND A PARTNER OF THEIR CHOOSING VS. THE WYATT FAMILY
I’m hoping the partner will be Cesaro, since seeing him left off these most months makes me pretty sad. As for the winner here, I say the Wyatts avenge their loss last month, plus Cesaro keeps up his losing streak.
5 – DIVAS CHAMPION NIKKI BELLA VS. CHARLOTTE
This would have meant so much more a week ago, but WWE loves taking away accolades from those who left them. The longest-ever Diva’s champion finally loses her belt here, which will hopefully be followed up by Charlotte becoming the new record-breaker.
6 – INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION RYBACK VS. KEVIN OWENS
It’s been four months since Ryback won the IC strap, but it’s felt like twice that. Owens could use a belt in WWE, and if he did an open challenge alongside Cena, I’d be watching every week. At the very least, we get an interesting IC title feud for the first time in ages thanks to an Owens win.
7 – UNITED STATES CHAMPION SETH ROLLINS VS. JOHN CENA
The Jon Stewart thing was funny and made the news, but it was a bit sad to see Cena lose the U.S. title in a schmoz on PPV after his entertaining open challenges. I say Cena wins his belt back here and goes back to defending it on Raw for a few more months
8 – WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION SETH ROLLINS VS. STING
Sting should probably get a WWE Title reign to add to his list of accomplishments, and when better than WWE’s lazy fall months? I say Sting wins here and loses his belt around the anniversary of his return where he’s screwed out of his belt by his eventual WrestleMania opponent who is… oh, let’s say… Moe.
