1 – Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin (No Disqualification Match, Kickoff show)
Definitely Corbin… otherwise he’s losing twice on pre-shows and that ain’t no way to build a new monster! Gotta assume they want him to be a new Kane or Taker-type so he at least needs to get a win. SLIGHT chance he loses again but then uses the no DQ stuff to do real awful mean heel shit to Ziggler after the match.
2 – United States Champion Kalisto vs. Rusev
Would like Rusev to win. but after Kalisto makes a herculean effort. He looks great for getting as far as he does, Rusev walks out with a belt and lords it over a returning Cena.
3- Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows vs. The Usos (Tornado Tag Match)
Assuming Usos win so Club can affect the main event. Hm, that actually makes me think Club wins and then the main event goes to Reigns / Usos. Yeah, let’s go with the Usos.
PICK: THE USOS
4- Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho (Asylum Match)
Feel like Jericho is just about done with this latest ride so surely Ambrose wins in HIS asylum? Hoping this isn’t goofball 9000 with pots and mops, but ehhhhhh.
5- WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. The Vaudevillains
New Day wins, SummerSlam seems like the time to take the belts off. That said, Day is over af even without belts so perhaps they lose and chase leading into SummerSlam? Villains also have some genuine heat after ringing Enzo’s bell, so them getting the belts here at a B PPV could allow for a solid program over the summer. I’ll actually say the Villains win???
PICK: THE VAUDEVILLAINS
6- Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn (Fatal 4-Way Match)
Miz’s gimmick kinda depends on him having a belt that other, more talented people want. I’d like him to retain, although Cesaro also needs the rub from a big win. I’ll say Miz wins as the other three experts slowly kill themsselves in a great match.
PICK: THE MIZ
7- WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte vs. Natalya (Submission Match; Ric Flair banned from ringside)
Charlotte wins. This seems so glaringly obvious that a Natty victory would be a genuine surprise.
8- WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles (Extreme Rules Match)
Expecting some interference or post-match craziness to factor into this, but at the end of the day Reigns retains in the road to Summerslam (beach boardwalk to Summerslam?). Maybe Finn appears, but I don’t think so just yet… Balor’s NXT run still has some juice in it and he’s gotta do that cage match with Joe in June.
