WWE Backlash 2020 Results United States Champion Apollo Crews def. Andrade (1/1) Got the first one! Women’s Tag Team Champions Bayley & Sasha Banks def. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics (2/2) Glad they retained, it was an ok match. Looking forward for their break-up. Sheamus def. Jeff Hardy (3/3) The feud will continue and I'm almost 100% sure we'll have some type of an Extreme Rules Match. RAW Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Nia Jax ended in a Double Count-Out (3/4) Again, the feud will continue, but sad for Asuka, after the departure of Paul Heyman, her push is stopped. Universal Champion Braun Strowman def. The Miz & John Morrison (4/5) WWE Champion Drew McIntyre def. Bobby Lashley (5/6) RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits vs. The Viking Raiders I'm not gonna count it, because their match didn't actually start. Randy Orton def. Edge (6/7) An excellent match, but sad for Edge, he suffered a triceps injury so he'll be out 6 to 8 months. It was really a filler PPV, didn't see anything special. No really good storylines. But SummerSlam is coming close, so I hope things will go better.
OK, let's do this prediction as quick as possible. WWE Backlash 2020 Predictions Edge vs. Randy Orton First we have "The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever", which is a singles match between Edge and Randy Orton. I haven't watched any RAW or SmackDown show in a month, right after the Money in the Bank PPV, so I'll be using lots of logic and no actual storyline. OK, back to the match. Edge and Orton last competed at WrestleMania, where Edge won a Last Man Standing Match. They will probably push this feud for one more PPV, let's say SummerSlam, so basically they must even the score. Edge leads 1-0, so Orton have to win the match to level the score 1-1. Prediction: Randy Orton WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley Next we have the WWE Champion, defending his title against the powerhouse Lashley. But unfortunately for the challenger, Drew is still far from dropping the title, so Lashley is just there to eat a Claymore Kick and the three count. Prediction: Drew McIntyre Universal Champion Braun Strowman vs. The Miz & John Morrison A 2-on-1 handicap match, similar to the 3-on-1 handicap match, which took place back at Elimination Chamber, where Strowman lost his Intercontinental Championship. Probably Miz and Morrison will try to do the same and use their numbers advantage to hold the monster down. Maybe in their heads this sounds good, but in reality we'll see the Strowman Express, squashing them beneath. I'm eager to see if Wyatt will do something after the match, because definitely, their feud is not over yet. Prediction: Braun Strowman RAW Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Nia Jax Asuka has just won the title and this is her first title defense. I don't like Nia Jax, she's not a good worker, rather pretty unsafe and I hope she's not getting the title anytime soon. Prediction: Asuka Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus No idea what's the storyline in this one. The only thing I know is that Jeff defeated Sheamus in the Intercontinental Championship tournament. A second loss for Sheamus will be a bit tough to handle, so looking for Sheamus to even the score at one a piece. Prediction: Sheamus Women’s Tag Team Champions Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross vs. The IIconics It was a little weird to see that Bayley and Sasha took the belts off of Bliss & Cross, because I expected The IIconics to do that. The thing I'm eager the see the most is the blow-up between Sasha and Bayley and I'm thinking, when is the rightest moment to do this. SummerSlam or not, there is no logic to give the titles to Bayley and Sasha and to take them off two weeks later. The thing I'm sure for is that the titles will 100% play later into their break-up. Prediction: Bayley & Sasha Banks United States Champion Apollo Crews vs. Andrade Andrade has held the title for a big period of time and really, he became boring. Apollo as the new champion is a fresh face and he can deliver pretty good matches. Apollo has just won the title, so giving it back to Andrade is not an option. Prediction: Apollo Crews RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits vs. The Viking Raiders Well you got me here. I have no idea about this one. In the last month a series of pre-recorded videos were shown on episodes of RAW, showing the two teams, battling in different sports. This is so 50/50. Prediction: The Viking Raiders
Here is the draw for the Intercontinental Championship Tournament: On the May 15th episode of SmackDown: Daniel Bryan def. Drew Gulak Elias def. King Corbin On the May 22nd episode of SmackDown: AJ Styles def. Shinsuke Nakamura Jeff Hardy def. Sheamus So we now know the semifinal matches: Daniel Bryan vs. Jeff Hardy Elias vs. AJ Styles I'm try to predict the outcome of the tournament. Daniel Bryan vs. Jeff Hardy. This match can go two ways. The first is to have a hard fought match with Hardy getting the win and the second way is Sheamus to attack Jeff leading to a Bryan win. But because both Jeff and Bryan are babyfaces I'll go with the first option - a great technical match with Hardy snagging the victory. Elias vs. AJ Styles - definitely going with the hot heel, AJ Styles is winning this match, presumably after interference from Corbin. And for the final we have Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles. Sheamus will interfere and cost the match for Jeff, thus continuing their feud. So my prediction is that AJ Styles will win the tournament and become the new Intercontinental Champion.
Kick-Off Match: Jeff Hardy def. Cesaro (1/1) A decent match, a little longer than expected. Cesaro looked great in defeat, while making Jeff to look great. The next chapter of Hardy's career started with a success. On to The Celtic Warrior. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day def. Lucha House Party, The Miz & John Morrison, The Forgotten Sons (2/2) It was an OK match, but it was far from what I'm expecting from a tag team bout. Maybe they decided to work a safe match, which worked well enough. The ending was a bit slopish, because it didn't make any sense for the referee to eject Jaxson Ryker from the ringside in a No DQ match. Bobby Lashley def. R-Truth R-Truth vs. MVP did not happen, so I'm not going to count it. SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley def. Tamina (3/3) Well build match, as Tamina represented the power and Bayley - the technicality and strategy. Tamina started strong, but Bayley found a way attacking her leg. The story between Bayley and Sasha is so much entertaining for me and I can't wait for all of it to happen. Tamina was able to deliver the Samoan Drop, but Sasha interfered which resulted in Bayley to roll-up Tamina for the 3 count, thus retaining the title. Universal Champion Braun Strowman def. Bray Wyatt (4/4) Amazing! In everything Bray is in, matches, promos, he delivers big time. As expected we had "Firefly Fun House" Bray. Some great action from both, I loved the match. Bray behaved pretty crazy throughout the whole match. The ending was pretty interesting too. Braun used some of Bray's mind tricks to be able to beat him. From Bray's point of view, it was like in his childish mind that his old friend is back and for some time, he was happy, but he was betrayed again. After the match, we saw Bray's psychopathic look, signaling that this is not over and that "The Fiend" is about to surface. WWE Champion Drew McIntyre def. Seth Rollins (5/5) Awesome match. Good back-and-forth action. We had every stop, that a championship match needs, but a very weird handshake after the match between the two. Let's see where this handshake will take us to. PS. I don't like Seth's new theme song. Asuka won the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match (5/6) Otis won the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match (5/7) Both of the Men's and Women's Ladder match was a lot of fun to watch. In the headquarters, there was a lot of funny skits, including Paul Heyman, Stephanie McMahon and Vince McMahon. The winners for me, didn't make any sense. First for the Women's, why only 3 of them were on the roof. Where were Shayna, Carmella and Dana Brooke, nowhere to be seen. I'm little disappointed that Shayna didn't win this. Even more pointless was the win of Otis, at least it was funny. It's sad that Otis will definitely fail at his attempt to cash in the briefcase, unless he loses it in a match to another superstar. It was a decent PPV with the most interesting matches for me were the Universal Championship and the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. The choice for winners was a bit strange for me, but let's hope it can work.
WWE Money in the Bank 2020 Prediction: SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley vs. Tamina Singles Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship The main story around the SmackDown Women's Championship is centered on the friendship of the current champion Bayley and Sasha Banks. We will continue to watch the disintegration of their friendship, until Sasha turns into babyface and challenge Bayley for the title, presumably at SummerSlam. Plus, Tamina pinned Bayley at the go-home show of SmackDown, so there is no chance for Tamina to walk out as champion. Prediction: Bayley wins and retains the title SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. Lucha House Party vs. The Miz & John Morrison vs. The Forgotten Sons Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship A lot of times the Tag Titles have changed hands in Fatal 4-Way matches, but I think we must take in consideration, that The New Day and Lucha House Party lost a tag match against The Miz & John Morrison & The Forgotten Sons at SmackDown. For me, Lucha House Party have 0% chance of winning the match, as well as The Forgotten Sons, because it's too early to put the titles on them. And really, putting the titles back on Miz & Morrison will do nothing for them, as they just lost them and from this point on you can build their dissension resulting in a match. So I think The New Day are the best choice for now, because of the coronavirus and WWE trying to keep their fans happy and distracted from reality. Prediction: The New Day retains Asuka vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Nia Jax vs. Dana Brooke vs. Lacey Evans vs. Carmella Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a Women's Championship Match Contract So taking in consideration the things happening for both RAW and SmackDown Women's Championships, I think the winner of the match must be from the RAW brand, because as I wrote above, the feud for the SmackDown Women's Championship going forward to SummerSlam will be between Bayley and Sasha, so I don't think any other threat will be added for them, therefore Lacey Evans, Carmella and Dana Brooke drop out as an option to win. Nia Jax doesn't really need the briefcase and Shayna is way more well build, than Asuka and really the briefcase does suit Baszler's character. Prediction: Baszler wins the ladder match Daniel Bryan vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Aleister Black vs. King Corbin vs. Otis vs. AJ Styles Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a World Championship Match Contract Here I'm really stumped, because I have no clue who could win the briefcase. From RAW we have - AJ Styles, Aleister Black and Rey Mysterio, as for SmackDown - Daniel Bryan, King Corbin and Otis. People who I can't see winning the briefcase are Otis and Rey Mysterio. Corbin is permanently in the mid-card, WWE once tried and gave him the MITB briefcase, but it was a failure, but I do expect to see someone to throw Corbin off the building. Aleister Black is still new to the roster and he has yet to win a mid-card title before being pushed to the main card. Bryan is good option to win the match as the biggest babyface going in, but the briefcase does suits much better on a heel, so we're left with Styles. After his disastrous pre-WrestleMania run, it's time again for a push. Prediction: AJ Styles wins the match Universal Champion Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt Singles Match for the Universal Championship At first, I was afraid from this feud, because I didn't see neither of them losing, but sometimes you must watch a bit further to see the truth. As we all see in the promotion picture above, Strowman is not facing "The Fiend", but the "Firefly Fun House" version of Bray Wyatt. So this feud will definitely continue after Money in the Bank, as for this match I think Braun will retain the title resulting in Wyatt going nuts and calling his "friend" for help. Eventually as "The Fiend", Wyatt will defeat Strowman to capture his second Universal Championship. Prediction: Strowman retains WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins Singles Match for the WWE Championship I hope for this to be a great match. WWE did a great work, building McIntyre to this point, as he delivers great promos and matches as well. Seth is here only to lose, as Drew had just won the title and he will hold it for at least a few more months. Prediction: McIntyre retains the title Jeff Hardy vs. Cesaro Singles Match A match just put out there to fill up the card. Hardy has just returned from injury and as we saw in the previous weeks, he will start a feud with Sheamus. So this match is just to shake off the ring dust from Hardy with Cesaro as a great sport. Prediction: Hardy wins R-Truth vs. MVP Singles Match Again just a filler match to fill up the card. There is no storyline going on between this two, so guessing the winner from this is a 50/50. Maybe MVP's associates Shane Thorne & Brendan Vink could help him to pick up the win. Prediction: MVP
Yeah, WWE will continue to broadcast shows and despite the situation they will be LIVE. Unfortunately, a lot of superstars have been released, due to the Corona virus outbreak. Some of which so far are: Drake Maverick Curt Hawkins Eric Young Karl Anderson EC3 Lio Rush Kurt Angle Rusev Zack Ryder Luke Gallows Heath Slater Rowan Sarah Logan No Way Jose Mike Chioda Mike Kanellis Maria Kanellis Aiden English Primo & Epico And many more to come. Freshly hot out of this SmackDown, we have NEW SmackDown Tag Team Champions, as Big E defeated The Miz and Jey Uso in a Triple Threat Match to win the gold and now The New Day are 8th time Tag Team Champions. Edit: For now Bray Wyatt, not "The Fiend", is scheduled to face Strowman at Money in the Bank. If that is about to happen, Strowman will have better chances of retaining, but if the PPV is taped, then we could see both Bray Wyatt and "The Fiend", via camera tricks and cuts.
WWE SmackDown - April 10th, 2020 - Results & Review The show began with the new Universal Champion Braun Strowman who delivered a babyface promo, but was interrupted by Shinsuke Nakamura who challenged him to a match. With that, the main event was set. Women's Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross def. The Kabuki Warriors This was a WrestleMania rematch, as Bliss & Cross won the match, retained the Women's Tag Team Championship and end their feud with The Kabuki Warriors. Now as Bliss & Cross are done with this feud, they are ready for new challengers, as later in the show, in a backstage promo, they were challenged by Carmella & Dana Brooke. I'm glad that the titles, at least for the time being, are featured more often in the shows, as that's probably the reason, the switch was made at Mania. Elias performed a song, celebrating his win over King Corbin and probably announcing, that he'll participate in the Money in the Bank's ladder match. Dolph Ziggler def. Tucker (Heavy Machinery) Before the start of the match, Tucker showed some pictures on the titantron of Otis & Mandy being together, as a part of their WrestleMania storyline. During the match, Tucker was wrestling quite angry, maybe teasing for a future heel turn, but I hope not. Ziggler pinned him after a Super Kick, just as a rebound for his loss at Mania. The Miz & John Morrison hosted "The Dirt Sheet", reviewing some WrestleMania results in their funny way, also noticing that Miz is still not cleared to compete. The segment was interrupted by The Usos and The New Day, as Big E announced that at next Friday's SmackDown, The Miz would defend the SmackDown Tag Team Championship in a Triple Threat Match, against Big E and Jey Uso. The Forgotten Sons def. Lucha House Party It was a NXT debut for The Forgotten Sons, so of course they would win this one. For me, this is one of the best storylines going on SmackDown right now. It has great booking so far, a slow booking that will eventually explode and when that happens, it will be so f***ing AMAZING! I'm talking about the relationship between The Boss Sasha Banks and the SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley. Bayley slowly turns in a person, whose only goal is to stay champion. In attempts to do so, Bayley will use Banks as a scapegoat and throw her into the hands of her enemies, just so she can stay away and be safe. This plot is already going, as Bayley & Sasha's promo was interrupted by Tamina, who challenged Bayley to a match. Bayley, as a standard heel, knows that she won't be able to defeat Tamina on her own, so she threw Sasha into the fire, causing her to face Tamina first. The match was scheduled for next Friday's SmackDown and if Tamina defeats Sasha, she will receive a championship opportunity against Bayley. I just want to congratulate Sasha here for showing an amazing acting skills. They both acted amazing. I just love how Sasha's expression changed from a cocky-confident look to а worrisome and uncertain one, realizing that her friend had just screwed her. I f***ing hope they to this right. Sheamus def. Cal Bloom I love that Sheamus has returned to his old hair style. It was a squash match, just to keep Sheamus look strong. Universal Champion Braun Strowman def. Shinsuke Nakamura Strowman won a hard fought battle against Nakamura, really great ME. The thing that followed the match was way more interesting, as on "Firefly Fun House", Bray challenged Braun for the Universal Championship. It's a common sense that Bray will go after Strowman, because they have a past together and I hope WWE and Bray himself can make this rivalry very intriguing and entertaining. But I'm not that excited, because Strowman had just won the title and I don't see him dropping it so soon. If, IF, Bray is here to lose, just let Bray wrestle and not "The Fiend"! It's great feud to have, but it's way too early to have these two against each other, because at the end, one of them must take the loss.
WWE WrestleMania 36 Results Night 2 Kick-Off: Liv Morgan def. Natalya Both Morgan and Natalya had good chemistry and worked a good kick-off match, as Morgan picked-up the win with a roll-up. Charlotte Flair def. NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley (1/1) Amazing chemistry, great athleticism from both women, amazingly worked match! Started slow, picked-up the pace. Charlotte started to work on Ripley's leg. The leg continued to be the main target of the match and after great 15-20 minutes of back and forth, Rhea submitted to the Figure-8. Aleister Black def. Bobby Lashley (2/2) No hype for this match at all, because it didn't have any story. OK performance, I'm just glad it's out of the way. The seeds for Lashley & Lana's break up were planted. Otis def. Dolph Ziggler (3/3) This match got me all invested in. Great long term booking from February, where this feud started, to all the way here. I'm really happy WWE decided to finish this storyline and turn in into a fairy tale. The match was OK, but the thing that mattered was giving the story a happy ending with Mandy Rose on Otis' hands walking into the sunset. Edge def. Randy Orton (4/4) Very enjoyable match. It's good they gave them so much time to work with. It really looked like, these guys hate each other and tried to destroy one another. Brilliant! The match lived to it's hype. These two created really something special and unique. Rob Gronkowski def. 24/7 Champion Mojo Rawley RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits def. Austin Theory & Angel Garza (5/5) Match, that I don't have any interest in. What happened after the match was more interesting. Theory, Garza and Zelina Vega attacked and assaulted The Street Profits, but Bianca Belair came for the rescue. SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley def. Lacey Evans, Sasha Banks, Naomi and Tamina (6/6) Loved the match. Sasha and Bayley worked for the whole match together and were able to eliminate Tamina and Naomi. With some misunderstanding Bayley kicked Sasha in the head. That led to a confrontation between the two, which allowed Evans to eliminated Sasha. Bayley and Evans had some back and forth, but in the end Bayley retained with the help of her friend, Sasha Banks. Great story told in the ring, really interested to see how WWE are going to build the rivalry between Sasha and Bayley. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt def. John Cena (7/7) Just bizarre! I wish it didn't end so fast. From the start to the finish I couldn't move my eyes away from it. All of this throwbacks to the past - Cena's debut against Kurt Angle; Cena doing rap of his doctor of thuganomics gimmick; their match from WrestleMania XXX, etc. Great work from both. Bray Wyatt is something completely unique! Drew McIntyre def. WWE Champion Brock Lesnar (8/8) As expected, very fast match, something like Goldberg - Strowman. A lot of finishers in just 2 minutes. 3 F5s and 4 Claymore Kick were enough to crown a new WWE Champion and that is Drew McIntyre. I think the match was hurt of not being held in front of a live crowd, because it would certainly be longer in duration and the crowd would go nuts after the victory of Drew, plus the fireworks. Still congratulations! That's it for this year's WrestleMania. For what is was, it has been pretty entertaining. I really appreciate that despite the situation, WWE decided to please us with this two-day spectacle. I really hope that things will get better soon and that the halls will be filled again with fans that these wrestlers deserve. As for my prediction: in night 1 I got 5 out of 8 matches and as for night 2, I got all 8 of them correctly. So overall from 16 matches, I got 13, which is pretty outstanding. See you again next time, when WWE is on PPV, whenever that is. Night 1: 5/8 Night 2: 8/8 Overall: 13/16
@bmo Why someone would still be wrestling in this age. Probably for the love of he business or he's doing it for the money? Well it's for the money, money. He is an Attitude Era big attraction, a big name from the past, which people will pay to see and he's a ratings booster as well. In Vince's world if someone is a moneymaker like Goldberg is, he'd rather use him than a new superstar, who is not properly built. Simply put, Goldberg is money and Vince loves money. About AEW, I'm really just watching WWE, I'm not watching any other wrestling promotion.
WWE WrestleMania 36 Results Night 1 Kick-Off: Cesaro def. Drew Gulak Very decent match with an interesting finish. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross def. Women's Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors (1/1) A great oppening match. It was funny to watch, but had a little sloppy ending. Still we have new champions. Elias def. King Corbin (1/2) A roll-up with grabbed tights. Very stupid finish... RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch def. Shayna Baszler (1/3) What the f**k...? And really, without crowd it's really weird. Still a match can't hype me up. Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn def. Daniel Bryan (2/4) The first match with a great storytelling and in-ring action, which actually got me invested. Zayn running away from Bryan, Gulak fighting on the outside with Cesaro and Nakamura. Bryan had the control for almost the whole match, as this way they're telling us that without the help of Cesaro and Nakamura, Bryan could easily defeat Zayn, which I hope will result in some storyline onwards. The end was very well executed. Nakamura and Cesaro on the outside attacked Gulak, Bryan went for a suicide dive and then climbed to the top rope, just to be welcomed by a Helluva Kick. Very well crafted match, which really showed that if you're good wrestler, you don't necessarily need a crowd. SmackDown Tag Team Champion John Morrison def. Jimmy Uso and Kofi Kingston (3/5) Even better that the previous match, even better than I expected it to be. Just the guys knew what they're supposed to do. Amazing match, they did lots of great spots and the end of the match was really awesome as well. Jimmy, Kofi and Morrison were all on three different ladders and unhooked the titles, but they all hold them. Jimmy and Kofi head bummed Morrison and he fell, but with the titles in his position, thus winning the match. Kevin Owens def. Seth Rollins (4/6) I can surely say, best match of the night. Great back-and-forth, amazing sequences and amazing counters. These two just tore the house down. Initially the match was won by Kevin Owens by DQ, after Rollins hit him with the ring bell. The match was restarted as a No Disqualification and no count-outs. Both continued a little longer, as in the end Owens put Rollins on top of the commentary table on jump on top of him from the WrestleMania sign. Then he returned him on the ring and executed a stunner for the win. Mojo Rawley def. 24/7 Champion R-Truth Braun Strowman def. Universal Champion Goldberg (4/7) Meh... 4 spears and 4 power slams and the think that annoys me the most is that Goldberg defeated Wyatt, but he just lost to Braun. Probably Goldberg's contract expires after Mania and he didn't want to resign, so yeah Strowman is the new Universal Champion. The Undertaker def. AJ Styles (5/8) Great theatrical movie in that boneyard match. Great spots here as well. Loved that Taker used some supernatural powers, like teleporting, making fire out of nowhere, also throwing Luke Gallows from the top of the barn and throwing Styles with a chokeslam from the top of the barn as well. I imagined Taker putting Styles in the grave with a Last Ride, but either way it was fun. So that's it from night 1. The show started really sloppy, but it improved by every next match. The matches that I loved, that really kept me glued to the screen were Zayn-Bryan, the triple threat ladder match, Owens-Rollins and Taker-Styles. The one I think was the worst from night 1 was for the Universal Championship. I predicted correctly 5 of the 8 matches, not the best result, but it could be worse. Tune in back tomorrow, as we'll follow the second night of WrestleMania!
So here are the matches that will take place tonight: Women's Tag Team Championship Elias vs. King Corbin SmackDown Tag Team Championship Intercontinental Championship Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles RAW Women's Championship Universal Championship And these will take place tomorrow: John Cena vs. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt Edge vs. Randy Orton Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley SmackDown Women's Championship NXT Women's Championship RAW Tag Team Championship WWE Championship
