Finn Balor has been in limbo since returning from shoulder injury post-WrestleMania a year ago – from the inaugural WWE Universal Champion to many questionable feuds, Balor has been in a weird spot. I don’t believe I need to begin listing his accolades. Rusev is the cult hero of Smackdown, and you have three solid workers in Randy Orton, the USA champ, Bobby Roode, who isn’t being used right as a face, and Jinder Mahal, an underrated former WWE champ.
The WWE is offering a free trial for one month by signing up and inputting a payment method. The main card will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Bryan v McMahon is a good match to build-up over the summer, but there is absolutely no reason why the build to it has to start on Sunday. Look for the “American Badass” to show up with Kid Rock singing his song in hopes of delivering one “last ride” to John Cena.
The show is starting!
But the report from Sunday morning that Rey Mysterio was already at the WWE hotel sparked speculation that he could be preparing for a more full return to the WWE.
The Interconitinental Championship still has Finn Balor favored slightly, however Seth Rollins has become a close underdog.
Another great move from Charlotte-a spanish fly from the top rope!
Prediction: Rousey has to win this, right? During a pin attempt from The Miz, Balor hits a Coup de Gras on the back of the Miz. He follows up by stomping The Miz, and picks up the pin fall victory.
One major element of gossip in New Orleans has been rumours Shane McMahon will turn heel and cost his partner Daniel Bryan their tag match with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on Sunday.
Three of the hardest workers in the wrestling business are going at it for the working man’s title. I really thought that The Miz would hold on to his title, but now he will likely get some time off to enjoy the beginning of fatherhood.
Rollins is now WWE’s latest Grand Slam Champion.
Asuka will face Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship in a bout that could steal the show.
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. But Asuka has the longest winning streak in WWE history – male or female.
The men’s WWE Championship and SmackDown Women’s Championships have similar trajectories and either of these matches can be the quintessential moment fans will be talking about for years to come. Asuka is unimpressed and just kicks her in the thigh.
Asuka, the victor of the first-ever Royal Rumble, will face The Queen Charlotte Flair in their first-ever meeting.
Well, I’m 0-2 on predictions. In a match that won’t be very technical, expect the Usos to retain. WWE has officially announced that there will be no limit on the timing of the show and it will go on for as long as the fights continue.
This isn’t an official match, but most people assume that The Undertaker will finally accept Cena’s challenge tonight. Cena runs to the back, and it seems that the match is on! The other challengers are Bobby Roode with odds of +765 and Jinder Mahal at +905.
