WWE put up a huge match in their eyes as the main event and expects it to sell well with a less than excitable under-card. I can’t say that I have high hopes for this PPV but hoping with get a clean finish in the main event. Onto the picks:
TLC Match for WWE & World Heavyweight Titles: John Cena (c) Vs. Randy Orton (c)
There has been much speculation on how this match will end, will there be one champion? Will there be just a title switch with Cena as WWE and Orton as World Heavyweight champion? Or will Triple H just say screw it and walk down there to crown himself champion? Not to say that this is the biggest match of the Year for WWE but more less it’s hyped to sell the PPV buys and not to finish this story. Ever since this has been announced I still have a feeling that the payoff for this storyline will be at WrestleMania. Why not? If this is so big then why not have them unify the titles at the biggest show of the year. As noted several times by me or anyone else on the internet, the world title is meaning less and I think for at least the mid carders it might give them more time to tell their stories with only on major world title. I’ll be honest, I really have no idea who will win this match but here is my take: I see this as what it should be. Cena goes on to win it; He holds both titles until WrestleMania 30. Randy Orton wins the Royal Rumble and challenges Cena to a unification match at WM 30. The winner is the “Undisputed Champion” of the WWE. I would have John Cena go over to make the title prestige once again and they would go on to feud over the title. It gives both men a mission and a storyline for the next couple months
Winner: John Cena wins both titles
Handicap Match CM Punk vs. The Shield
Before I get into this, just know that I like all four superstars in this match. WWE thinks that we love handicap matches and I can’t stand them. We have seen The Shield destroy someone when it’s three on 1 for over a year now. So why should we think that one man in Cm Punk, who we have already seen them beat him down in these situation. Have a real possibility of winning or more less get some offense in. I’m assuming that it will be a tag style handicap match but if it’s a tornado style where they don’ t have to tag in then Punk has no shot. I’m not sure where they are going with this but not a big fan of this.
Winners: The Shield
Handicap Match: Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt Family
As noted about the other one handicap match, not sure how the flow of the match will go but I think this will be the better of the two. Same thing with the Wyatt’s if we have seen the Wyatt’s destroy Bryan when it’s three on 1. So why should we think that he can beat them now. No logic on the part of Creative but the ultimate pay off will be Bryan rising up against the family and have a one on one match with Bray.
Winners: The Wyatt Family
Fatal Four Way Tag Team Title Match: Rhodes Brothers © Vs. Rey Mysterio & Big Show, Ryback & Curtis Axel and the Real Americans
This was a thrown together match, Rey Mysterio and Big Show has been just put out there. No background on these two but now their all of a sudden a tag team. I keep thinking back to when Big Show would just destroy poor little Rey and now their best friends. I see big show turning on Rey if they want to make them a full time team. On screen it looks like two superstars that have no direction just put in a tag team. I really don’t see any threat to the Rhodes Brothers in this match and I see a wild tag match but sill champions.
Winners and still champions: Rhodes Brothers
Intercontinental Title Match: Big E. Langston (c) Vs. Damien Sandow
This is more than likely to open the show, on TV and Social Media Sandow has done a good job of selling himself has a serious contender. He has gotten a minute or two on the microphone but has done an excellent job convincing fans that he could be the new champion. I really am into this feud but I know that Langston just won the belt and for right now it looks like Langston will be holding that title.
Winner and Still Champion: Langston
WWE Divas Title Match: AJ Lee (C) vs. Natalya
Once again the diva’s division isn’t the best but this could be an actually surprise in they pull off a good match. Both women can but I still don’t feel that Natalya can be a better champion than Miss AJ Lee. The famous quote “if it’s not broke don’t fix it”
Winner and Still Champion: AJ Lee
Pre-Show Match: Dolph Ziggler Vs. Fandango
Both guys have been on the streak of loses or just flat out we have nothing for you so go out and have a random match. Both good talents that I think creative is looking over. This should be a good match and possible match of the night candidate believe it or not. I might even check this out for the hell of it. It’s really a 50-50 pick but I will go with…
