What to watch for at SummerSlam
ABC News - over 1 year
As fully loaded as Sunday's SummerSlam card is on paper, it's difficult to pinpoint one matchup that stands out above the rest as the no-brainer to headline. In this case, that's a good problem for the WWE to have, considering just how deep the roster has become one month after a brand extension and draft divided it in half. The result has been a number of intriguing storylines set to culminate inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which will host the 29th edition of WWE's second-biggest pay-per-view. While a showdown between veterans ? Brock Lesnar? and ? Randy Orton? has the most star power of any match scheduled for Sunday night, and is being pushed most prominently across both Raw and SmackDown Live, the ? rest ? of the card offers plenty of bouts that are more important to the company's immediate future after the kickoff of its so-called "new era." Let's take a look at what's at stake in each match. ...

WWE ‘Extreme Rules’ Matches And Predictions: Will Daniel Bryan Wrestle? Who Will Escape The Cage As WWE Champ?
The Inquisitor - almost 3 years
WWE presents Extreme Rules this Sunday, and there are eight big matches on the card. A number of titles are on the line and there is a steel cage, Daniel Bryan’s health, a Russian chain, and even a Chicago street fight to enjoy and wonder about. Let’s check out some predictions to see what may end up happening on Sunday evening. Seth Rollins has everything stacked against him here with Kane guarding the gate (they haven’t been best friends lately) and the steel cage keeping out J&J Security…which obviously means he will retain the title. WWE isn’t taking the belt off of him after just having him cash in a month ago. It won’t be a clean victory, but he’ll escape the cage somehow while Randy Orton gets screwed over. Winner and Still Champ: Seth Rollins John Cena doesn’t need a belt to keep his status, and two losses in a row for “The Bull” would really hurt Rusev. Throwing in the Russian Chain means that this wouldn’t even be a bad loss for Cena. Expect this one to be pre...

WWE: WrestleMania 31 Predictions
isports web - almost 3 years
These are confirmed matches at WrestleMania. I’ll be taking a look at what I think will happen at the big show this year. This is not the official lineup in any way shape or form. Also, I must add that this year’s build has not as been below average to say the least. With that being said this card is still loaded with talent. Kick off show Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs The New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston) vs Los Matadores vs The Usos will battle for The Tag Team Titles. This match starts before the actual event. In my opinion WWE has thrown in other tag teams that we the audience don’t care about. It’s not the wrestlers fault, but WWE’s booking and storyline. I do think there will be a couple of cool spots and hot tags in the match. In the end the champs should be able to retain. Winners. Still Tag Team Champions Tyson Kidd & Cesaro Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal The match has been moved to the kick off show as well. The match really comes down to a couple of comp...

WWE: Final predictions ahead of Wrestlemania 31
isports web - almost 3 years
Wrestlemania is finally upon us. Three nights from now the superstars of the WWE will step into the ring on the grandest stage of ‘em all inside Levi’s Stadium. Rivalries have been building for months, but the time for talk is over. Its either put up or shut up. Im going to take a look at each contest and predict who will walk out of Santa Clara victorious. Pre Show: Fatal Four Way Tag Team Championship Match: Tyson Kidd & Cesaro (C) vs. The New Day vs. Los Matadores vs. The Usos This matchup has been brewing for a couple of weeks now. Each team has been paired off at one point or another in recent weeks, and tensions have been building. A fatal four way match is the best way to get at these teams in the ring without having to book separate matches. I like what Cesaro and Kidd have done during their run with the belts and would like to see them develop and grow as champions, but their reign is going to be halted by the Samoan twins. Winners and new Champions The Usos Inter...
