    ****. Forgot it was Extreme Rules this Sunday. Thought we still had another week. Christ. What a poor run-up to a PPV.

    Anyway, predictions:
    - Kidd/Cesaro def. The New Day to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships.
    - Dean Ambrose def. Luke Harper in a Chicago Street Fight
    - Sheamus def. Dolph Ziggler in the Kiss Me Arse match
    - Daniel Bryan def. BNB to retain the Intercontinental Championship (if it goes ahead)
    - Naomi def. Nikki Bella for the WWE Divas Championship
    - Big Show def. Roman Reigns in the Last Man Standing match, after interference from Bray Wyatt
    - John Cena def. Rusev in the Russian Chain match for the WWE United States Championship
    - Seth Rollins def. Randy Orton to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

    That theme is very Mick Foley-inspired. I like it.

    BNB's is the best in the company right now, though. No doubt.

    So, Rollins retains. As expected. Very run-of-the-mill PPV.

    Called it being the main event which I'm pleased about.

    Rusev-Cena would have been such a waste. It's been announced at Payback, so I expect Rusev to regain the title there.

    I thought the PPV was pretty dull personally. The wrestling was decent but the booking sucked and there was nothing to really get excited about. Expect Cena to get his 3rd straight win over

    Yeah nothing to really get excited over. This and payback will just be fillers til Summer slam where they actually put effort into it. And of course lesnar will be at Summer slam

    Pleasantly surprised by the New Day against Kidd/Cesaro. Hope they give those two teams some TV time. Maybe get them headlining SmackDown or something to mix up the formula.

    Reigns-Big Show exceeded my expectations, too. Great performance from the former, and he sold the **** out of that chokeslam through the two tables.

    Shame about Bryan's neck situation. The guy needs to calm down and take stock. He talks about respecting the business and wanting to take crazy bumps, but he needs to be more savvy and smart and prolong his career.

    I want an un-Americans type stable with BNB, Sheamus and Paige. Would give Neville an outlet as a babyface, too. He could stand up to them. He's blown me away since debuting on the main roster. Especially considering Bo Dallas, Adam Rose and The Ascension's failures.

    Person I was most hoping for (and now dissapointed) was Corey Graves tbh, he just has that look.

    Neville will shine in the midcard

    Can see Neville, BNB, Sheamus and Ziggler becoming such a reliable quartet for the midcard. Akin to Booker T, RVD, Guerrero and Benoit during the 2003 Heyman-era of SmackDown.

    Shame about Graves really, but I fully expect Zayn and Balor to be impressive when they are called up.

    It's a shame to see Ambrose losing heat since the Shield break-up. He was red-hot then, but he seems to have regressed with these zany promos. They need to make him more serious. I think a heel turn would do him the world of good at this stage.

    Yeah the new day as heels is quite good imo and I've loved kidd and cesaro together since day 1. Thought reigns big show could be a car crash of a match and that fans would boo the crap out of it but thankfully I was wrong. Were some great spots in the match, the chokeslam like you said and the spears through the barricade and from one announce table through another :cool:. Crowd was into the match too and firmly behind reigns . Yeah Bryan needs to take it easy or early retirement beckons. What was the point of the ryback Bo dallas segment lol.

    Great chemistry between them. Hope they get the straps back at Payback or MITB.

    Yeah they need to bring out more of his psychotic side and turn him into a heel. That's where he'll thrive best. I thought that was the direction he was headed in after the string of losses but I guess not.

    You can't make a crazy guy look "crazy" and have him face at the same time. Atm it seems like his persona is the fighting hillbilly what with the vest and jeans (which seriously need to go).

    On that note, Reigns would look a lot more believable if he gets rid of the combat vest too.
