Steph! Steph! Steph +++ Mizzz isn’t an A-lister – he’s an A-hole +++ Seth Rollins forgets to name his challengers for the Ice Bucket Challenge +++ AJ Lee dedicates her life to Paige +++ Suplex – repeat, cont. +++ Cesaro impersonates Muhammad Ali +++ Sheamus is an incredible U.S. champ +++ It’s a Falls Count Anywhere match +++ Kendos, Chairs, and a Table +++ Charles Robinson has got a déjà-vu +++ This is awesome3 +++ Dean Ambrose’s head is harder than cinder blocks
My expectations for this show are exorbitant! I’m telling you. One of the reasons is that I’ll watch it live and go to work just two hours later. So, me basically putting myself in some sort of a jet lag needs to be worth it. Much will depend on Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins and I hope it is scheduled for as late as possible. On paper, most matches look interesting but most importantly are unique and not done already for a couple of times. This really could be a great PPV. After the disappointment that was Battleground, improvement isn’t very hard this time anyway.
Dean Ambrose is going to be a movie-star +++ This is awesome +++ Seth Rollins breaks Dean Ambrose’s heart +++ Kane knows what’s best for business +++ Eva Marie loses some extensions +++ Bo Dallas is inspirational at making excuses +++ Roman Reigns apparently has a weak spot
The next PPV is rolling on and I’m doing just another preview. By now you already know perhaps that I really suck at predictions. Usually because I create my own storylines in my mind that will never happen but somehow that influence me thinking about the outcome of certain matches. The good thing is that even creatives, not to mention the wrestlers themselves, often don’t know until five minutes before a match, who is going to win. Take this here as just another possible storyline in an alternate dimension. It might not happen here but maybe somewhere else.
The real reason behind Super Cena being champ again +++ The briefcase of Seth Rollins is loaded with TNT +++ Only a Real American can be even against Rusev +++ One minute silence for Wade Barrett and Daniel Bryan +++ Cesaro steps even up his heel behaviour +++ Damien Sandow is Vince McMahon +++ The Wyatts grind the Walls of Jericho +++ Paige is a woman of few words +++ Seth Rollins’ first attempt to cash in fails miserably
How can you stare at people with a mask on? +++ Dean Ambrose has to deal with a lot of people +++ Paul Heyman isn’t amused +++ The Usos and Big E should have a manager +++ Roman Reigns has to deal with Randy Orton and his servant Kane
This is going to be one unusual review of Smackdown. It will be very short, it will include a short prediction for Payback and there will be just a huge rant. Well, the last one won’t be very surprising for every regular reader of this blog section. But sometimes I also tried to be funny. Since I haven’t got much time left, here are my predictions for the outcome of the matches at Payback (the winner is written in capitals / red are the actual results):
