We are going to be having an amazing weekend of wrestling. We have world collide which is gonna give us amazing in ring matches and we have my favorite PPV of the year, the Royal Rumble. I will go over my predictions and go over what I thought of Raw and Smackdown.
My favorite match of this week was Mysterio vs. Andrade, I will never get sick of seeing these two wrestle each other. This was one of my favorite ladder matches I have seen in a long time.
I would of liked this segment with Ricochet and Brock better if Ricochet said he would enter at 2 and see a good competition between them at the beginning. Ricochet is so good and he needs something to give him a spark.
Even though the match ended in no contest Drew vs. Orton I enjoyed and would like to see a detailed feud in the future. I really liked Drew’s promo at the end and like I said last week I’ve really liked Drews babyface turn. I would be all for Drew winning the royal rumble.
I was so happy when Buddy and Rollins won tag titles. Rollins is the man on Raw and he should have some kind of gold and as for Buddy Murphy this is huge for him. I am really happy for Buddy.
This Lashley/Lana/Rusev/Liv storyline has kind of gone out of control. I was never against this story but having Liv and Rusev lose really isn’t doing anything for the story. I am hoping Liv and Rusev can go their seperate ways and be stars outside of this story.
I don’t know if I am just not engaged to what is happening on Smackdown or if the stories are just not strong but Usos and Roman vs. Ziggler, Roode and Corbine I didn’t feel at all.
I liked the promo was Lacey Evans but the crowd kinda took me out of it because I thought I heard boos while she was talking about her father’s passing and being inspirational to other. I really thought she knocked that promo out of the park. I loved the Bayley heel beat down, but I do not want Bayley to drop this. I feel babyface Sasha vs. heel Bayley is money and needs to be booked for this Bayley run to end and mean something. We had another match I wasn’t invested into Braun and Elias against Cesaro and Shinsuke. I really feel Smackdown needs a purpose. Either they are a wrestling show, a storytelling show, they need an identity.
Andrade vs. Humberto: I am taking Andrade for this match and for the feud that ended, continued, will end again at Royal Rumble.
Shorty G vs. Shaemous: I am taking Sheamy, it’s his return should be a dominant win.
Bayley vs. Lacey Evans: I am thinking they take the title of Bayley and put it on Lacey. They seem really high on her and the crowd seems behind her as well.
Mens Rumble: I am taking Drew, I feel it is his time.
Roman vs. Corbin: I am predicting Corbin wins and Roman goes far in the rumble.
Becky vs. Asuka: I am taking Bex, this will be her match to prove she is the best.
Women’s rumble: Taking Ronda or Shayna, they need something big for Becky.
Fiend vs. DB: I want it to be DB but I see Fiend winning again.
