Hmmm... my biased predictions.

Becks & Naomi vs Carmella & Natalya - have to hope for Becks to get some respect here.

Nakamura vs Rusev - Damn... talk about a clash of styles. The crowd will be hot for Rusev, but Nakamura is the one with the WM match. Hard to make a call, but probably Rusev.

Usos vs New Day - probably the best match of the night. Usos retain. (Ane even though he already had a match, the crowd will be chanting "Rusev Day" unless these two are damned near killing each other like they did in that cage match with all the kendo stick shots.)

Roode vs Orton - also probably a good match. Roode retains. Orton would gain nothing by taking that belt; he doesn't need it.

Flair vs Riott - I say Riott to change things up in the women's division and set Charlotte up to go back to Raw.  She has little charisma with the women on SD and hasn't done much there and would be better suited to Raw. And maybe could help out Rousey, since we're stuck with her).  Probably a 3.5 star match.

Six-Pack Challenge - probably a giant clusterfark of a match. Pulling for Sami, but expecting AJ to do the "beating the odds again and again" thing (which is getting tiresome, and I've been an AJ fan for something like 100 years.) (Though I have no idea how that gets Cena to WM and I can't see them NOT putting him on the card. I will be seething if he breaks Flair's record, plus Cena vs Nakamura would be
absolutely awful. ANYONE else in that match would be hundreds of times better.) (He's also not earned any forgiveness for that rumor he was going to work a program with Elias and put him over. Asshole.)

I also forgot about MITB. With my luck, as I am happy Riott has the belt, Carmella will come out and take it from her. Though any shake up is good, and Charlotte needs to go back to Raw, anyway - she has much more chemistry with the women on there than she does with the SmackDown! crew.

This is the last single-brand PPV, isn't it?  I wonder if that signals the beginning of the end for the dual brands, and whether or not that is a good or bad thing.

Oh sh*t is this today?  I cancelled the network a few months ago.  I only watch an hour of RAW and Smackdown usually. Having a baby has made being up to date on wrestling kind of difficult.  Thank goodness for r/squaredcircle so I can still be in the loop.

Sadly, he can win all he wants but we'll never see it.
 
2018-03-11 05:42:18 PM  
knowing what the preliminary WM bookings are makes predicting this kinda rote.. nevertheless, if you want them, here they are:

Six-Pack: AJ
US Championship: Roode
Tag Match: Usos retain via DQ because of Bludgeon Bros. interference
Women's championship: Charlotte
Shin-Rusev: Shin
Carmella/Nattie-Becky/Naomi: *flips a coin*

Carmella may tease, but will NOT cash in tonight

The Bestest: Carmella may tease, but will NOT cash in tonight


Honestly, I don't think they have any idea what to do about that since she's not really over as a heel or a face - she just kind of exists in an "oh, she's still there" sort of way, not as good in the ring as other women there, and they already did the failed cash-in with Corbin.

Were I writing it, I'd have her still holding it heading into the next MITB match, thinking she's outsmarted the system, only for her to find out it had an expiration date and she has to fight for it again, just like everyone else.

(In full fairness, they botched that whole "first women's MITB" from the start by injecting Ellsworth into it in the first place and not having someone, no matter who it was, get a clean win.)

If Styles drops the belt tonight, I swear to GOD I will shank somebody! >:-(

Captain Steroid: If Styles drops the belt tonight, I swear to GOD I will shank somebody! >:-(


...how would we explain to the Stamford PD how Dunn fell on THAT many sharp objects after he jumped from the top of Titan Tower?

Anyway, not 100% sure I'm going to watch tonight. I've got the $9.99, but I'm at my sister's house on a combo Spring Break/mom coming home from rehab week.  Might grab my tablet and watch it on that.  Sister's working late, so it's just me and her cats until she gets home.  Also, I frigging HATE typing on my laptop's keyboard because my touchpad's sensitivity.

Six-Pack: I call shenanigans, somehow ends up with a tie between AJ and Cena, giving him a his match at WM: AJ/Shinuke/Cena Triple Threat.
US Championship:  Dangit, Bobby!  (Orton gets DQed.)
Tag Match: Usos retain via DQ because of Bludgeon Bros. interference
Women's championship: Charlotte, and Carmella teases a cash-in.
Shin-Rusev: Shin. Sorry, can't be Rusev day in Japan in until Russia and Japan settle their dispute over Kuril Islands.
Carmella/Nattie-Becky/Naomi: *flips a coin, accidentally hits a cat.*

Perhaps we (or at least I) should clarify.  AJ dropping the belt to Cena would prompt spontaneous shanking.  Dropping to KO or Sami... or to a lesser extent Dolph would be okay.  Corbin still needs a little bit more time in the oven, so to speak.

My order of preference: Sami, KO, Corbin, AJ, Ziggler.... everyone loses, everyone quits, WWE closes its doors.... Cena.

You forgot both the final heat death of the universe, and the arrival of the Aurora Borealis, at this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within the Nationwide Arena.

I usually play "how drunk is Renee Young?" but it appears tonight is "guess what the hell Booker T is on" instead.

Oh good, Art Garfunkel is on the pre-show tonight.

So, what Dumb-Ass-Fantasy-Booker would do is this: Charlotte beats Ruby Riott. But the Riott Squaddd beats Charlotte down after the match, so that she is unable to defend herself when Carmella suddenly cashes in. Pinning a barely conscious Charlotte, Carmella is finally the champ!

At which point, Asuka's music hits! She comes dancing out, and lets Carmella know that she is the chosen opponent for Wrestlemania!

So you're advocating that Asuka should not end Alexa Sammartino's reign on Raw. Sounds peachy.

Booker is actually saying Baron Carbon.  That is all.

The story they're inexplicably telling is a wholly unnecessary (and not really wanted, either) face turn for Nia, who will be the one to take Alexa's belt.

grain of salt, but preliminary WM booking has Nia-Alexa for Raw title, Asuka-Char for SDL title, Carmella cashing in on Asuka immediately after and losing

Becky Lynch is fun on Twitter. She interacts with the fans a lot, so her account is way more than just a promotional tool.

That's, oddly, what my husband just said - that it would be interesting and surprise booking.  Kind of makes sense.... Vince supposedly loves Corbin.

As is my luck, many of them do. Just not Sami. My husband kept asking him to wish me a happy birthday and nothing. But I've been acknowledged by Jimmy Jacobs, Rosemary, Chris Daniels, and KO.

The Lucha Underground people are great with their twitter. During the show, it's not unusual to have conversations with stars, producers, trainers. It's damn fun to livetweet LU, because you never know who'll respond.

Oh, and I follow both you and Scorpio Sky on Twitter. I don't always pay 100% attention to whose name I'm looking at, so more than once I've wondered why you were tweeting about upcoming matches of yours.

I wish they would do the six-pack match first so I can turn it off when it's over and work on getting my hour of sleep back.

Good evening wrestling fans!  Expecting Styles to somehow retain.  Not sure about the women's division, though. I don't expect Flair to lose to Riott, but Carmella is still a potential factor.  Just hoping for entertainment from the tag title match.  Low expectations for Nakamura/Rusev.  I think the performers could make it work, but kind of expecting it'll not be given the time it needs.  Roode/Orton feels like them trying to just find something for RKO to do.  They just might put the US Title on Orton because of that reason.  Women's tag match I also expect won't be given the time it deserves.

/If they want Carmella to get nuclear heat, have her hold the MitB until 'Mania and have her end Asuka's streak after an epic match with Flair.

I couldn't decide either, but I'm bored, and I actually have a decent connection for once.

It would be really nice if they would take an interest in one on one matches instead of everything being tag teams and near rumble-level matches.

Also: what the hell did Chad Gable do? The guy is a total package (could use a little mic help, but that comes with time) and he's not getting the push he needs.

They set him and Shelton up as the heirs apparent for the tag titles, and promptly, repeatedly, jobbed them. I have no idea what's going on in WWE Creative.

Dunno, but he's probably getting paid $141.66 per match.

Unpopular opinion around here, but I am unironically and unsarcastically looking forward to when Ronda is regularly main-eventing pay-per-views.

The kickoff show is broadcast elsewhere besides the 9.99, so they're trying to sell it to those people.

I'd blame Vince for shoving her down our throats.... but I have a suspicion this may be HHH's doing.  Maybe if she was a bit taller, she'd be more of his type.  But she is close...
