WWE Battleground 2014 Review

WWE Battleground 2014 took place at the St Pete’s Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. The inaugural Battleground was not very good. Will this year be any different? Let's take a look.

The first match on the Pre-Show was Fandango taking on Adam Rose. Layla and Summer Rae have now put their feud behind them and come out with the Rosebuds. In a short match, they distract Fandango long enough for Rose to hit the Party Foul and get the win. This match seemed to be more about the angle between the four of them and less about selling the Pay-Per-View. 
Winner: Adam Rose 
Predictions: 1 for 1

The second match on the Pre-Show was between Naomi and Cameron. There seemed to be a lot of hair pulling by both women in this match and some wrestling moves thrown in there. The end comes when Cameron throws Naomi front first into the ropes then rolls her up for the victory. This match was not very good and it had a terrible ending.  
Winner: Cameron 
Predictions: 1 for 2

The first match is a 2-out-of-3 falls match for the Tag Team Championships with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenging The Usos. The Wyatts work on Jey Uso and get the first fall after Jimmy Uso gets tagged in and gets creamed with a big boot by Harper. Jey Uso later on gets tagged in and takes the opportunity of Harper missing an avalanche splash to roll him up and get the second fall. After some back and forth, The Usos get the third fall after hitting a double superkick followed by a double splash on Rowan. I thought that the first two falls seemed a bit sudden. However, I thought it was a really fun match to watch, especially with the near falls near the end.
Winners; The Usos
Predictions: 2 for 3

Next is Dean Ambrose taking on Seth Rollins. At least that was the pan. Ambrose attacks Rollins while he was giving a backstage interview and he is restrained by the road agents and the referees. He is then thrown out of the building by Triple H. I guess we won’t see the match after all.

Now a match that I was looking forward to: Paige challenging AJ for the Divas Championship. Paige gets the advantage early on before getting hit with a tornado DDT. AJ later on applies the Black Widow but Paige gets out of it and hits the Paige Turner for 2. Paige goes for the PTO but AJ avoids it and almost kills Paige with the Shining Wizard to get the victory. Whilst I wished it went on for a bit longer, I thought it was a good match. The next night, Paige attacks AJ and turns heel. It will be interesting to see how Paige does as a heel because she has always been a face as “The Anti-Diva” while she was in NXT. So far, it hasn’t been too bad, so we’ll see how it turns out.
Winner: AJ
Predictions: 3 for 4

Next was Rusev with Lana taking on Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter. The match starts with Lana slapping Zeb Colter as soon as he starts to speak. During the match, Swagger keeps on trying to put on the Patriot Lock. Rusev does get to wear down Swagger, including sending him flying over the top rope. Swagger hits some big moves like the Swagger Bomb and he counters a superkick inot the Patriot Lock. Rusev does manage to get to the rope and the action goes to the outside. Swagger again applies the Patriot Lock but Rusev manages to send Swagger into the ring post. Rusev just manages to slide back in before the ten count to get the victory by countout. Afterwards, Rusev applies the Accolade on an unconscious Swagger. I thought it was a good match and it was refreshing to see Rusev have to work hard to get the victory. I look forward ot seeing more matches between the two.
Winner: Rusev
Predictions: 4 for 5

We now get Seth Rollins coming out and officially(?) winning his match against Dean Ambrose via forfeit. Ambrose, who Triple H had banned from the building, runs in and attacks Rollins. After a lengthy brawl, security manage to get Ambrose out of the building. It seems like they building it up to a match at Summerslam and that should be a good contest.
Winner: Seth Rollins (I guess)
Predictions: 5 for 6

Now another match that I was looking forward to: Bray Wyatt taking on Chris Jericho. Jericho, during the match, tries to apply the Walls of Jericho but Harper and Rowan interfere and eventually get sent to the back by referee Mike Choida. We get some really good back and forth between the two before Jericho hit the Code Breaker out of nowhere to get the win. It was a good match although nothing really stood out and I was surprised that Jericho won
Winner: Chris Jericho
Predictions:  5 for 7

After we see Dean Ambrose attack Seth Rollins as he was leaving the building, we get the battle royal for the vacant Intercontinental Championship. The competitors are: Big E, Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro, R-Truth, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Zack Ryder, Titus O’Neil, Damien Sandow, Heath Slater, Diego, Sin Cara Version 2, Xavier Woods, The Great Khali, Kofi Kingston, Bo Dallas, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz and Sheamus. Khali is, thankfully, eliminated early on and there were some good bits: Cesaro knocking Kofi off the apron and landing on top of Big E's shoulders; Cesaro then superplexing Kofi off Big E's shoulders back into the ring; and Cesaro getting shockingly eliminated by Heath Slater. It looks like Ziggler and Sheamus are the final two and Ziggler eliminates Sheamus by dropkicking an attempted shoulder block from the apron. However, The Miz, who had spent that last half of the match in a heap by the announce table, slides in and eliminates Ziggler to become the new Intercontinental champion. I really enjoyed the battle royal and whilst I was gutted that Bo Dallas didn't win, I'm happy with Hollywood Miz winning and I loved Ziggler's reaction afterwards.
Winner: The Miz
Predictions: 5 for 8

The main event is a fatal 4-way match with Roman Reigns, Kane and Randy Orton challenging John Cena for the WWE World heavyweight Championship. In the beginning, you get to see Kane and Orton work together. That falls apart when Kane covers Reigns after a DDT and Orton doesn’t take that well. You get teases of Cena and Reigns fighting each other but either Kane or Orton put a stop to it. Cena does hit the AA on Kane but he rolls out of the ring. Cena then puts Orton in the STF but Reigns drags Orton out of the ring and throws him over the announce table. Cena and Reigns then have a mini-match, in which Reigns hits the Superman punch then a spear. Reigns, later on, spears Orton through the barricade then spears Kane inside the ring and Cena breaks up the pin. Orton RKOs Reigns but Cena hits the AA on Orton, sending him on top of Kane. Cena then pins Kane to get the win. 
I thought this was a decent main event. They really made Reigns strong, although I don’t really see him as a World Champion, and they told a good story throughout the match. 
Winner: John Cena 
Predictions: 6 for 9

I thought the Battleground was good, with some enjoyable matches. However, the two matches they had for the Pre-Show were not very good. Even though a lot of their audience are watching the event through the WWE Network, there are some people paying to watch it. To help with that, they need matches on the Pre-Show that are enjoyable and I feel that they failed on that count. I hope that the Cesaro/RVD match on the SummerSlam Kick-off Show will be better than these matches.

WWE Summerslam 2014 Preview

WWE's biggest event of the Summer, Summerslam is taking place this evening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Will we see a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion after the event? Let's look at the card.

Rob Van Dam  will face Cesaro on the Kickoff show. This could be a good match to watch and I think that Cesaro will win here.
Predicted Winner: Cesaro

Rusev will face Jack Swagger in a flag match. Their match at Battleground was pretty good so I'm hoping for the same here. I can see Swagger winning but I'm going for Rusev here.
Predicted Winner: Rusev

The Miz will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Dolph Ziggler. I think this could be a really good match and I'm going for Miz to win here.
Predicted Winner: The Miz

Brie Bella  will take on Stephanie McMahon in something that I'm quite interested in seeing. Stephanie is not a wrestler but I'm sure her husband Triple H would have made sure she was capable in the ring. Whilst I believe that Stephanie has been in the right during this feud, she is the heel and I think that Brie will win here.
Predicted Winner: Brie Bella

Bray Wyatt will once again face Chris Jericho with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper banned from ringside. I don't know about this as Jericho won last month and if Wyatt wins, it might feel like he doesn't need his buddies. I'm going for Wyatt to win here.
Predicted Winner: Bray Wyatt

Paige will once again challenge AJ Lee  for the Divas Championship. The matches between the two have been pretty good, although it would be nice if they can given a bit more time. I think that AJ Lee will win here.
Predicted Winner: AJ Lee

Dean Ambrose will get his hands on Seth Rollins in a Lumberjack Match. As Mr Money in the Bank, I feel that Rollins needs to look strong. However, WWE have not done good over the last few years so it's tough to say. I'm going for Ambrose to win here.
Predicted Winner: Dean Ambrose

Roman Reigns and Randy Orton is a match that I'm quite looking forward to seeing. Like the Ambrose/Rollins match, this is a tough one to call. Reigns has been on fire recently and I think he will win here.
Predicted Winner: Roman Reigns

Brock Lesnar will challenge John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. This should be a good match. Lesnar may be a part-time wrestler but he has to win here otherwise I feel that him ending the Undertaker's Streak would be a pointless exercise.
Predicted Winner: Brock Lesnar

I'll watch Summerslam over the week and the Battleground review will be up in the next few days. Until then, I hope you enjoy the show.

WWE Money in the Bank 2014 Review

WWE Money in the Bank took place at the TD Garden in Boston. After this event, we will see a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion as well as a Money in the Bank briefcase holder. So, who will they be? Let's take a look.

The first match is for the Tag Team Championship as The Wyatt Family challenges The Usos. The Usos show some good double team moves to get some near falls. The Wyatts later on, start to use their strength and size to wear down Jey Uso. Rowan misses a shoulder charge into the corner to give Jey the chance to tag in his brother. Despite Harper hitting a big boot to slow down the momentum, and almost winning it with a sit-down powerbomb, the Usos hit 2 consecutive splashes to get the win and retain the Championships. I really enjoyed this match and I really liked both teams here.
Winners: The Usos
Predictions: 0 for 1

We now get the Divas Championship match as Naomi (with Cameron) challenges Paige. Naomi takes advantage by throwing Paige from the ring to the floor then doing a suicide dive. During the match, we get a lot of pinfall counters. Naomi hits the rear view, which I fucking hate, to get a near fall. Despite Naomi's best efforts, Paige hits the Ram-Paige to get the win. I was actually really impressed with Naomi's athletic ability and I hope she can continue to improve.
Winner: Paige
Predictions: 1 for 2

Next we see Damien Sandow, dressed as Paul Revere, taking on Adam Rose.  Sandow does get some offence in the early going. However, Adam Rose does manage to hit a headlock driver to get the win. The match wasn't anything special. I just feel sad for Sandow. This time last year, he won the opportunity to have a World Heavyweight Championship shot. Since he cashed it in and lost to Cena, he seems to be on a downward course and that's disappointing.
Winner: Adam Rose
Predictions: N/A

Next is the Money in the Bank ladder match between Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston,  Rob Van Dam and Dolph Ziggler. Highlights of this match include: Ambrose tilting the ladder with Kofi and he then bounces off the ropes and splashes Swagger, RVD and Ziggler on the outside; a rolling thunder by RVD sending Rollins onto a ladder; Ambrose suplexing Rollins off the ladder; and Ambrose dislocating his shoulder. Rollins starts to climb up the ladder but is stopped by Ambrose who runs back in. When Ambrose climbs up and is about to grab the briefcase, the Corporate Demon Kane runs in, pulls Ambrose off the ladder and gives him a chokeslam then a tombstone piledriver. Kane then helps Rollins climb the ladder and grab the briefcase. I thought this was a pretty good match and while I did predict that Rollins would win, I'm quite surprised that he actually won. I'm interested to see when he cashes in as it could result in a great feud depending on who the Champion is at the time.
Winner: Seth Rollins
Predictions: 2 for 3

We now get a tag team match with Rybaxel taking on Goldust and Stardust. Goldust and Stardust work really well together and Rybaxel do get some time wearing down Goldust. Eventually Goldust gets to tag in Stardust and he almost wins the match after reversing a muscle up into a cross rhodes for 2. Stardust takes advantage of Axel accidentally hitting Ryback with a clothesline to roll up Ryback and get the win. It was a decent match to watch. I'm kind of torn with Stardust at the minute. Half of me thinks it's great, half of me think it's stupid. Despite that, at least it means that the Rhodes brothers aren't breaking up.
Winners: Goldust and Stardust
Predictions: 2 for 4

The next match is Rusev fucking up Big E(spoiler alert!) To be fair, Big E does get more offence than he did at the last Pay-Per-View and makes it a bit of an even contest. Big E spears Rusev off the ring apron to the floor, which looked nasty and he hit a few suplexes as well. However, it was all in vain as Rusev does manage to apply the Accolade and, despite Big E's best efforts, he is forced to tap out, giving Rusev the win. I thought this match was pretty good and it was nice to see Big E put up more of a fight than he did last time.

Winner: Rusev
Predictions: 3 for 5

Next is the Divas match between Summer Rae and Layla with  Fandango as the special guest referee. Both women spend the match flirting with Fandango at every opportunity; and it does degenerate into a catfight with little wrestling moves actually taking place. Lyal does hit a high kick to the head of Summer Rae to get the win and afterwards, kisses Fandango. I did not give a fuck about this match, which is a shame as Layla and Summer Rae are good wrestlers. Hopefully, they will get better things to do.
Winner: Layla
Predictions: 3 for 6

The main event is a ladder match for the vacant WWE World Heavywieght Championship between John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Kane, Sheamus, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton and Roman Reigns. All of this is under the watchful eye of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at ringside. Highlights of the match include: Kane chokeslamming Cena to the cheers of the crowd; Kane helping Orton out; Reigns spearing Kane; Wyatt doing the Sister Abigail to Orton; and Orton pulling Cesaro off the ladder into a RKO, making the Authority jump up in celebration. In the end, Cena AA's Kane, pulls Orton off the ladder and AA's him on top of Kane. Cena then climbs the ladder to collect the belts and become a 15-time World Champion (sigh).

I did enjoy the match, although I felt the middle bit of it was a bit slow. Cena winning was a bit predictable but I'm ok with it for now. I don't mind him going past Ric Flair's 16 World Championship reigns, which seems inevitable. As long as they don't give Cena 10 title reigns over the next two years, then I will be happy.
Winner: John Cena
Predictions: 4 for 7

I thought that Money in the Bank was a decent show. It may seem that Cena being Champion once again might be boring. However, the presence of Seth Rollins could lead to an interesting feud. Only time will tell.

WWE Battleground 2014 Preview

The second ever WWE battleground event takes place this evening at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. We will get to see an new Intercontinental Champion crowned; plus will John Cena retian his WWE World Heavyweight Championship? Let's look at the card.

Taking place on the Pre-Show will be the explosion of the Funkadactyls as Cameron takes on Naomi. We all knew this was coming for a while and I think that Naomi will win.
Prediction: Naomi

The other match on the Pre-Show will be Adam Rose taking on Fandango. This should be a decent match and I suspect that Adam Rose will win here.
Prediction: Adam Rose

 The Tag Team Championships will be on the line in a 2-out-of-3 falls match. Eric Rowan and Luke Harper will challenge The Usos. This has the potential to be an entertaining match and it should be a lot of fun. I predict that The Usos will retain here.
Prediction: The Usos

Bray Wyatt will face Chris Jericho in a match that I'm really looking forward to.This one is quite a tough one to call but I'm going for Wyatt to win here.
Prediction: Bray Wyatt

Another match that I'm looking forward to is the Divas Championship with Paige challenging AJ Lee. My only worry is that it could be placed as the penultimate match and it may not get a lot of time. Despite that, I think that AJ Lee will win here and their mutual respect might fracture beyond repair.
Prediction: AJ Lee

Dean Ambrose will take on Money in the Bank Seth Rollins.This should be a really good match and I think that Rollins will win.
Prediction: Seth Rollins

A 20-man battle royal will take place for the vacant Intercontinental Championship. The participants are Alberto Del Rio, Big E, Bo Dallas, Cesaro, Curits Axel, Diego, Dolph Ziggler, Heath Slater, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam, R-Truth, Ryback, Sheamus, Sin Cara Version 2, The Great Khali, The Miz, Titus O'Neill, Xavier Woods and Zack Ryder. I can see a few people winning it but I'm taking a punt and going for Bo Dallas to win here.
Prediction: Bo Dallas

The main evnet for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is a fatal 4-way between John Cena, Randy Orton, Kane and Roman Reigns. Cena will win here but will he have to deal with a cash-in by Seth Rollins afterwards?
Prediction: John Cena

I'll get to see it during the week, so until then I hope you enjoy the show.

TNA Slammiversary XII Review

TNA Slammiversary XII took place on Sunday 15th June at the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. How will the TNA landscape look after this event? Let's take a look.

The first match is a ladder match for the X-Division Championship as Sanada  faces the challenge of Tigre Uno, Manik, Crazzy Steve, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards. We get to see a lot of aerial moves such as Tigre Uno doing a corkscrew springboard splash to all the competitors outside.  Crazzy Steve comes very close to grabbing the belt but Sanada comes in and stops that. Later on, Manik seems to brutally murder Davey Richards with a sunset flip powerbomb onto the ladder and Sanada manages to climb up and grab the belt to win the match. I really enjoyed this match and it was a great way to open the Pay-Per-View.
Winner: Sanada
Predictions: 0 for 1

We now get the first qualifying match for the main event as Bobby Lashley faces Samoa Joe. Highlights of the match include: a suicide dive by Joe; and a spinning neck breaker by Lashley. The end comes when Lashley hits a spear to win the match. There wasn't that much that stood out. However, I thought it was a pretty decent match.
Winner: Bobby Lashley
Predictions: 1 for 2

Magnus (with Bram) takes on Willow (with Abyss) next. This was a decent match although both guys didn't do anything that stood out, although Willow did do a reverse splash to Magnus and Bram on the outside which was pretty cool. In the end, Magnus bounces Willow's head off the turnbuckle then hits a back suplex side slam to get the win.
Winner: Magnus
Predictions: 1 for 3

Next was a segment in which Kurt Angle announced the next inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame. That turned out to be Team 3D. I think this is a really good choice. Team 3D, otherwise known as the Dudley Boyz, were one of the top tag teams at the turn of the millennium, winning 23 tag team championships in ECW, WWE and TNA; and were involved in some of the greatest tag team matches in history. I still find it weird that the TNA Hall of Fame involves wrestlers that are still active. But anyway, a good choice.

We now get the second qualifier for the main event as Kenny King takes on Austin Aries. The match goes back and forth and we can to see King being cocky when he is dominating Aries. However, that comes back to haunt him as Aries makes his comeback and gets the win with a top rope brainbuster. It was a really enjoyable match and it looked like that anyone could win it.
Winner: Austin Aries
Predictions: 2 for 4

We now get The Von Erichs take on the team of Jesse and DJ Z. Jesse and DJ Z work over Marshall and later on, Ross before he gets the hot tag to Marshall. The Von Erichs look to have the match won but Jesse comes in and hits Ross with a steel chair to get disqualified. Afterwards, Kevin Von Erich comes in and applies the Von Erich claw on DJ Z. I thought the Von Erichs did pretty well in this match. However, I think it would have been better if they won the match cleanly.
Winners: The Von Erichs
Predictions: N/A

The Knockouts Championship is on the line as Gail Kim challenges Angelina Love with Velvet Sky. Kim tries a springboard hurracarrana but Love counters it into a powerbomb. Later on, Velvet Sky sprays hairspray into Kim's face right in front of the referee Brian Stiffler and Angelina Love hits the Botox Injection for a 2 count. Senioe Referee Earl Hebner comes in, ejects Sky and Stiffler and referees the match himself. Kim does make a comeback. Kim dropkicks Hebner and looks like she twice has the match won. However, Stiffler is busy tending to Hebner. Love counters a roll up into a roll up and Stiffler slides in and counts the 3 count to get the win. I thought it was a good match and I wonder what the repercussions for Stiffler's actions will be.
Winner: Angelina Love
Predictions: 3 for 5

Next is a Texas Death Match between Ethan Carter III and Bully Ray. There was a brutal bit where Bully kicks a steel chair into EC3's face. Overvthe course of the match, they both use chairs, tables, a cheese grater, a Dallas Cowboy trash can containing shards of glass, and a rope connected to a cowbell. Bully exposes the ring boards and tries to powerbomb EC3 onto them. Rockstar Spud comes in to save him but he gets destroyed with a kendo stick. EC3 hits the one percenter, driving Ray onto the boards for a 9 count. Dixie Carter runs in and is chased by Bully. She runs into EC3 that somehow knocks her out. Bully tries to send Dixie through the table. However, EC3 hits him with a kendo stick and Rockstar Spud pulls Dixie off the table just before Bully falls through them. The referee counts to ten and EC3 wins the match. I quite enjoyed this match, although I didn't really like the ending.
Winner: Ethan Carter III
Predictions: 4 for 6

The penultimate match is between Mr Anderson and James Storm. Storm injures Anderson's knee early on and Storm focuses his attack there. The end comes when Storm spits beer into the face of one of the Dallas Cowboys watching the show. A couple of minutes later, Cowboys player George Selvie comes to the ring and distracts Storm long enough for Anderson to hit the mic check and get the win. Whilst I thought it was a bit short, I quite enjoyed this match and I can see them having some more matches in the foreseeable future.
Winner: Mr Anderson
Predictions: 4 for 7

The main event is a steel cage for the TNA World Championship. Eric Young will face the challenge of Austin Aries and Bobby Lashley. Aries and Young team up briefly to take down Lashley before they start to fight each other. Highlights of the match also include: Aries doing a powerbomb pin on Young for 2 followed by a running dropkick on Lashley; Young doing an AA type move on both Lashley and Aries; Young doing an elbow drop on Lashely from on top of the cage; and Aries doing a brainbuster for 2. Lashley misses a spear and goes flying out of the cage and Young gets the win after reversing a brainbuster into a piledriver. I really enjoyed this main event, although it was quite short. I'm still finding it a bit weird Young being the Champion. However, that doesn't matter as Lashley wins it on the following Impact.
Winner: Eric Young
Predictions: 5 for 8

I quite enjoyed Slammiversary. I thought most of the matches were good, although a couple seem to be a bit short. Despite that, I'm sure TNA are starting to head in a good direction. They probably won't be but there's no harm in being optimistic.

WWE Money in the Bank 2014 Preview

The 2014 Money in the Bank takes place this evening in the TD Garden in Boston. At the end of this, we will have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. So, who will it be? Let's look at the card.

Big E will once agian take on Rusev. This shouldn't take long for Rusev to win here.
Predicted Winner: Rusev

The team of Rybaxel will take on the team of Goldust and Stardust. This is an interesting one but I can see Rybaxel pulling it out of the bag here.
Predicted Winners: Rybaxel

Naomi will be challenging Paige for the Divas Championship. Whilst it would be interesting if Naomi does win, I can't see it. Therefore, Paige to win here.
Predicted Winner: Paige

In the other Divas match, Summer Rae will face Layla with Fandango as the special guets referee. Whilst I like all the competitors, I seriously do not have the slightest fuck about this match. However, I do have to make a prediction so...fuck it, Summer Rae to win.
Predicted Winner: Summer Rae

 The Wyatt Family will challenge The Usos for the Tag Team Championship. This could be a good match and I'm going for The Wyatts to win here.
Predicted Winners: The Wyatt Family

The Money in the Bank ladder match will be between Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Rob Van Dam and Kofi Kingston. Bad News Barrett was supposed to take part but he suffered a seperated shoulder so is unlikely to compete.
This is a tough one to call but I'm going for Seth Rollins, with some help from the authority, winning here.
Predicted Winner: Seth Rollins

There will be another ladder match for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship between Sheamus, Corporate Demon Kane, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Randy Orton and John Cena. This should be a good match to watch and it would be a change of pace to see someone new like Cesaro win it. However, I feel that Cena will win here.
Predicted Winner: John Cena

I hope to put up reviews of Slammiversary and Money in the Bank over the next few days. Until then , I hope you guys enjoy the show.

TNA Slammiversary XII Preview

Slammiversary XII (technically X) takes place this evening at the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. Will MVP's plan to have complete power succeed? Let's look at the card.

Mr Anderson  will take on James Storm in a match that could go either way. I'm going for Storm to win here.
Predicted Winner: James Storm

Willow will take on Magnusand I still don't get why Jeff Hardy would go with this gimmick. Anyway, I believe that Willow, or whatever the fuck his name is, will win here.
Predicted Winner: Willow

There will be a ladder match for the TNA X-Division Championship as Sanada  faces the challenge of  Manik, Tigre Uno, Crazzy Steve, Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards. I think this could be a fun match and I think that Tigre Uno will win here.
Predicted Winner: Tigre Uno

Two of my favourite wrestlers in TNA right now, Bully Ray and Ethan Carter III, will face each other in a Texas Death Match. This could go either way but I believe that EC3 will scrape his way to victory.
Predicted Winner: Ethan Carter III

Gail Kim will challenge Angelina Love for the Knockouts Championship. This is a tough one to call but I think that Love will retain here.
Predicted Winner: Angelina Love

Samoa Joe  will take on Bobby Lashley with the winner taking part in the World Championship match. I would love Joe to win here but I think that it's more likely that Lashley will be victorious.
Predicted Winner: Bobby Lashley

In the other match to dtermine the third wrestler in the main event, Austin Aries will take on Kenny King. King is not Champioship material and, unless it's under questionable circumstances, he won't win here.
Predicted Winner: Austin Aries

In the main event for the World Championship, in a steel cage, Eric Young  will take on those two winners. I can see MVP's plan for total power having a slight setback so I'm going for Young to win here. 
Predicted Winner: Eric Young

I won't get to see this til Wednesday evening. Until then, I hope you guys enjoy the show.
