A brand new pay per view is premiering this Sunday for the WWE and although the only thing that I can think about is “Dang! No Elimination Chamber for 9.99!?!?”, this PPV is vitally important because, it adds the shoulder stripes and some lines to the Road To Wrestlemania.
5 Key Matches and all of them will literally determine what happens at Wrestlemania 31. J.R Bang and I got our predictions, wishes and theories as to how this breaks down.
IC Title Match: Dean Ambrose vs Wade Barrett
Cam’s Pick Dean Ambrose: It’s all set up for Dean to take this, because The Shield breakup has lead to every members obvious benefit. The feud with Ambrose and Bray Wyatt was a nice set up for them to both shine at Wrestlemania and since Ambrose doesn’t have that speculated match, he might as well gain a title.
To be honest, I’m not even sure how Ambrose ended up mid-card status but, I think winning the IC Belt puts both Ambrose and the IC Belt back in casual conversation.
Tag Team Title Match: Cesaro and Tyson Kidd vs The Usos
Cam’s Pick: Cesaro and Kidd: Let me be clear. I don’t really want to see Tyson Kidd win ANYTHING! I don’t even like seeing his face on TV, although top spot will always go to Bo Dallas [who I think is the ugliest kid on TV] but, the writing’s on the wall for Cesaro to win a title and have at least a decent start to this year and for that, I’m happy! Ceasaro swings his way to a victory with Tyson “Saturday Morning Cartoon Face” Kidd and they both capture their first tag team title.
I still prefer Cesaro to come out with the red jacket and the foreign rap music…but it is what it is.
Diva’s Title Match: Paige vs Nikki Bella
Cam’s Pick: Paige: Shout to my Bish “Pale Ale”!!! And I mean that affectionately! I LOVE PAIGE! I think everything about her is dope. I wish Eric Bischoff was still around, so he can make her spin the wheel for some H.L.A! All that being said, Paige is actually a very good wrestler and the better Diva’s Title Wrestlemania match is Brie vs Paige. I absolutely DO NOT want to see Nikki vs Brie ever, EVER AGAIN!
U.S Title Match: John Cena vs Rusev
Cam’s Pick: Cena by DQ: I think Cena is just here to build Rusev’s steam for Wrestlemania. I think this match will be better than expected but, Cena wins by DQ. Rusev’s not going to lose his title and his streak at the same time at a new PPV. IF he did….his contract might as well be up that night! Whatever gets Lana to Wrestlemania I’m with it. The DQ, sets up the new American Hero at Wrestlemania match. Since Cena is the New Hulk Hogan, it’s only right he wins the title for all the troops that rock with him on the grandest stage of them all.
Cena has went a long time without a title. Cena can win the U.S Title, I just don’t believe it happens this Sunday.
Winner Faces Lesnar at Wrestlemania Match: Roman Reigns vs Daniel Bryan
Cam’s Pick: Roman Reigns: I just don’t want to believe that the people have said “YES” so many times that it’s going to cost Roman Reigns his earned title opportunity. Life isn’t fair and that’s not Roman Reigns problem. On the low, Reigns has plowed throw quite a few “Challenges that make him look ready” and I expect this to be no different. Since the Universe will hate him either way, they can make it look like Bryan gets screwed by the authority in some way but, realistically right now, Bryan losing straight up would make perfect sense to me. Reigns isn’t the first guy to get a chance at the brass ring before people felt it was time. He won’t be the last either.
Roman Reigns shot himself like a torpedo out of a submarine and did the most Video Game like spear I’ve EVER seen to The Big Show on RAW. That made me believe he’s going to win and head to Wrestlemania and look formidable against Brock Lesnar. This Wrestlemania, Paul Heyman shines on a whole new level because of lack of mic talent!
FastLane has to be eventful to excite us about Wrestlemania. I don’t think the cancel page crashes this time but, I do expect these matches to start a build up to lead to a Wrestlemania a lot of people won’t appreciate until 5-6 more pass…at least minus the main event.
