I leave you with thoughts below!! :))
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP (NO HOLDS BARRED MATCH)
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
Thoughts: If you would have told me a month or two ago that we’d be here, I wouldn’t believe you. I still don’t believe it seeing it on my screen. This Brock reign feels like it’s going to be a different one. Interested in where they’ll go this time. Oh…and no papi….Rey Rey ain’t taking that belt.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
Thoughts: This is not so much about Bryan challenging to me as much as it is about Bray’s quest for revenge on all of his past foes. I think this time….The Fiend mauls DB. Where does this Fiend story go? Does it culminate with Taker? Roman? Hmmm…..
Winner: Bray Wyatt
MEN’S 5-ON-5 TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES ELIMINATION MATCH
Seth Rollins (Captain), Randy Orton, Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, and Ricochet vs. Roman Reigns (Captain), Shorty G, King Corbin, Mustafa Ali, and Braun Strowman vs. 5 NXT Superstars
Thoughts: This is a real headscratcher for me. We have a lot of talent in one spot at the same time. This typically means we will have a LOT of guys who have to get their spots in. Last year, team Raw won….Let’s switch it up this year.
Winner: Team SD
WOMEN’S 5-ON-5 TRADITIONAL SURVIVOR SERIES ELIMINATION MATCH
Sasha Banks (Captain), Carmella, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross vs. Charlotte (Captain), Asuka, Kairi Sane, Natalya and Sarah Logan vs. 5 NXT Superstars TBA
Thoughts: So I have picked Team SD for the men’s match. I typically won’t pick the same brand to do a clean sweep. Since the NXT women haven’t been quite spotlighted, I can’t see them winning.
Winner: Team Raw
Adam Cole (c) vs. Pete Dunne, Damian Priest, or Killian Dain
Thoughts: So did I miss this? Maybe I did, so I can’t say that I can recall the challenger as of this writing. But the fact remains – The Undisputed Era is a problem and I do think they will be reasonably protected on the main stage. For those unaware of what I mean…that boy ain’t dropping that strap.
Winner: Adam Cole
RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler
Thoughts: I have enjoyed this build quite a bit! I think all three women have been handled nicely enough to make it seem as if the field is rather open. Although Becky is still “Duh Man”, I do not see her winning or needing this win. I think the key is Shayna telling us that she’s not Ronda….
Winner: Shayna Bazler
RAW Tag Champions Viking Raiders vs. SmackDown Tag Champions The New Day vs. NXT Tag Champions Undisputed Era
Thoughts: I think NXT shines in two areas throughout the night that will bring eyes to the product – the tag division and the women’s division. I’m going with the Undisputed Era looking strong here and sneaking one out.
Winner: Undisputed Era
United States Champion AJ Styles vs. NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong vs. Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura
Thoughts: Three ways we can go with this one. My gut tells me this one would be a slam dunk for an AJ win. But I think we can spice up the picture and bring a little more light on Naka’s IC reign if he squeezed out a win here.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
Overall Thoughts: Guys and gals….have fun!!!! Your very own Earl Marx will be in attendance at NXT War Games Saturday night! Enjoy that show and enjoy this. I wouldn’t be stuck on sticking to major storylines and whatnot. We get fantasy warfare a few times a year. Sit back and let it flow maannnnnnnnn!
