Reasons Why the Warriors or Cavs Will Win the NBA Finals


By: Kyle Boris

The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers are meeting in the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year. Steve Kerr and the Warriors have won 2-out-of-3 thus far with a third championship in reach. Seemingly, the only person in their way is, arguably, the greatest basketball player of all-time.

Some complain that they would have preferred a different matchup this time around, seeing as though we’ve seen this movie play out already for the past three seasons. But, unlike The Hangover 3, Little Fockers and every other terrible sequel, this franchise just seems to keep coming with hit after hit.

The fourth movie in this installment has added the injury questions with 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodola and 5-time All-Star Kevin Love. Nick Young and JaVale McGee are the buddy cop duo you never you knew you needed in this blockbuster. Then, there’s the role players don’t feature in many scenes, but if they shine, could make or break the film for a certain team. I’m looking at you Jordan Clarkson, Jeff Green and George Hill.

With all the different storylines intertwined in the 2018 NBA Finals, it’s difficult to come up with a definitive reason as to why either team will hoist the O’Brien Trophy this year. That is why I went to social media to ask for one reason, one word or one sentence why the Cavs or Warriors will win the NBA Finals. After going through all of them, let’s check out the results.

1.) Warriors because they know how to put the ball in the basket


These two Twitter users believe the Warriors’ offense is just too much to keep up with and they might be right. Durant, Curry and Thompson are all among the top 20 in points per game this postseason while the Cavs have only one player. That one player happens to be Lebron James who finds himself at number 1 with 34 points per game. That being said, Kevin Love is the next guy on the list for the Cavs, but he lands all the way at 42 with only 13.9 ppg.

The Warriors have three guys who could legitimately drop 30 a night, while the Cavs struggle to have a player other than Lebron drop 20. Kevin Love has scored 20+ just four times, while the rest of the Cavs have combined for two 20-point games, one from J.R. Smith and another from George Hill.

This postseason the Warriors have played one less game than the Cavs, but still have outscored Cleveland 1,855 to 1,821. The offensive fire power cannot be questioned and Lebron and co. will have to either try to keep up with Golden State, shut them down or just keep relying on the King. But, can they actually do that for a fourth consecutive series?

2. Warriors because Lebron is playing WAY too many minutes

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 10.14.06 PM

Lebron James is a player unlike any we’ve ever seen before. He rarely misses games, he plays entire contests and he looks like he might actually play forever. But eventually, that has to take a toll on him, right? Right?!

The man has AVERAGED 41.3 minutes per game. The four main guys for Golden State are all averaging around 38 minutes per game with Curry getting the most rest at 35.7 mpg. A 3-minute difference might not seem like a lot, but when every minute counts, that little bit of rest could be the difference especially when the Warriors can rain 3’s on a team at the snap of Thanos’ fingers.

And when Lebron is on the court, he’s leading the postseason in usage rate regarding players who have played at least 7 games. James’ usage rate is at 35.9 while Durant is the highest Warrior at 31.2.

There have been rumblings that Lebron is exhausted and that he’s getting tired. Even so, he still has found a way to take his team to victories over the Pacers, Raptors and Celtics. Even so, that could be a different story once he attempts to tackle the Warriors. Let’s say Lebron and Durnat take a play off together, the Warriors STILL have the Splash Brothers(remember them) to rely on, while the Cavs would be lucky to have a healthy Kevin Love.

Can the Cavs afford to take out Lebron? Can they afford to not have him involved in most possessions? Maybe none of that actually matters?

3.) Cavs because the NBA is…RIGGED

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 10.15.15 PM

I for one find this hard to believe because I like to believe that everyone is a good soul and no bad would ever be done in the world of the National Basketball Association. But…but! There are plenty of people out there who feel very strongly that our beloved NBA is indeed rigged.

A quick advanced Twitter search using the words ‘NBA’ and ‘rigged’ from May 27th(when the Cavs clinched) until now, will result in thousands of tweets from users who believe the NBA is definitely rigged.

I’m all about rigged television. I’ll tune into WWE each and every week even if it’s rigged so that Roman Reigns wins all the time. You bet I’m into some scripted entertainment, but if the NBA was actually rigged, the lights would go out before Game 1 and Russell Westbrook would show up in a Cavs uniform.

4.) Warriors because the Cavs just don’t have enough

It was mentioned earlier that Cavs players not named Lebron or Kevin have struggled to make an impact and in order for them to have a chance this series, they’ll need a Kyle, a Jordan, a Jeff and a George, and maybe even a Rodney to show up and contribute.

The Warriors have multiple players that contribute every night whether it be their four All-Stars or their role players such as Shaun Livingston and Kevon Looney. To be able to take down a team like the Warriors, it’ll take more than just Lebron and Kevin(if healthy) to get the job done. That was evident in Golden State’s series vs. the Rockets.

Houston was able to win three games that series and it was no coincidence that role players stepped up to match the big four of the Warriors. In Game 2, P.J. scored 22, Trevor dropped 19 and Eric put up 27. In their Game 4 and Game 5 wins, Gordon also scored 14 and 23 to help take the load off James and Chris.

The Cavaliers’ versions of Eric, Trevor and P.J. can be seen in Kyle, Jeff and J.R., but those guys haven’t proven that they can consistently help out Lebron. If that’s not the case when the Finals begins, we very well might be looking at a sweep.

5.) Cavs because Whatever Happened to Predictability?

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 10.14.27 PM

You can never go wrong with 80’s/90’s sitcom parodies and CBS Sports tweeted out a fantastic mash-up to get you ready for the NBA Finals with the Family Matters theme song to put the icing on the cake.

Did the makers of the video use Kevin Durant eating a cupcake on accident? Was it intentional that Klay Thompson was shown missing a dunk? Do they know something we don’t? Maybe “Coach Perk” is the X-factor that the Cavs needed all along?Screen Shot 2018-05-30 at 10.50.53 PM

6.) Warriors because they have SNIPERS


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

At the end of the day, the Golden Warriors are sending three of the best shooters in the world onto the court each and every night. During the regular season, Durant, Curry and Thompson combined to make 614 3’s and all three were in the top 10 in 3-point percentage among players who took at least 300 3’s.

That’s tough to swallow and even tougher to prepare for.

The Rockets had the bodies to compete with the Warriors thanks to their ability to score the basket at a high rate. But, how will the Cavs do the same when some of their best shooters are under-performing during the playoffs?

During the regular season J.R. Smith shot a respectable .403 from the field, but has seen that number drop to .356 thus far in the playoffs. Jordan Clarkson, another sharp-shooter, had a .456 field goal percentage, but that number has plummeted in the playoffs to .309.

Those numbers got the Cavs by in the earlier rounds, but when up against a behemoth like the Warriors, Clarkson and J.R. are going to need to improve for Cleveland to have a chance.

Even if Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith shoot better, it’s no given that it will be enough. The Warriors have three MVP Awards between Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. It’s not often you see former NBA MVP’s playing together while both are still in their prime and it’s scary to think these two could be along for the ride for the foreseeable future.

Both guys averaged exactly 26.4 ppg during the regular season which just further showcases just how in-sync the duo is. The only other team to have two players average over 25 ppg was the Pelicans’ duo of Anthony Davis(28.1) and DeMarcus Cousins(25.2) with the latter only playing 48 games due to his season-ending injury.

Durant and Curry are at the top of their games and if Steph keeps shining and shimmying, while Durant keeps making contested long-range shots, the Warriors could be on their way to back-to-back titles.


7.) Cavs because Lebron James

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 12.29.36 AM.png

Sometimes the answer is just two simple words.

Lebron James is playing at an almost unfathomable level right now and only he knows just how far he can actually take this team.

James has played in 18 games this postseason. Here’s some of his scoring numbers in those games.

He’s been a fan of scoring 40+ points as he’s put up 46, 46, 45, 44, 44, 43 and 42 so far.

He’s shot at least 50% from the field in 13-of-18 games. He’s also had a double-double in 13-of-18 games.


But somehow that’s just the norm for Lebron James. You would think after playing an entire NBA season there might be some lay-off, but he’s actually just doing what he does in the regular season and carrying it into the playoffs. James shot 54% from the field in the regular season. His field goal percentage during the playoffs? 54%.

He’s also just staying on the court more than ever in order to make sure his team has the best chance at winning. King James averaged 41 minutes in the Conference Finals vs. the Celtics in order to help lead the Cavs to victory. Will that kind of effort be enough for the Cavs to win another championship with Lebron at the helm? There’s not many players that could take down a dynasty-in-the-making like the Warriors, but if there’s someone not to bet against, it’s Lebron James.

As Twitter user @Da_Manveer said, “Cavs will probably not but hopefully win because(Lebron James) is the greatest basketball player of all time.” And if that doesn’t sum up most of America’s feelings, I don’t know what does.

8.) Whoever Wins 4 Games First

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 10.10.17 PM

The real answer to this question was quite obvious all along. Basketball fans around the world will be gifted another entertaining series whether the Warriors sweep, Lebron pulls off the unthinkable with a miracle series-winning shot in Game 7, Nick Young and J.R. Smith do Nick Young and J.R. Smith things, or Cedi Osman gets in a game. The 2018 NBA Finals are here so let’s enjoy this fourth installment in this series before the credits roll on another NBA season.

Building the Perfect Royal Rumble


By: Kyle Boris

Since January of 1988, the WWE has held an event that would come to be one of the key components in creating new stars, bringing back old ones and ultimately being the starting point on the Road to WrestleMania. The Royal Rumble is a match like no other that brings millions of fans from around the world together to count down from 10 to 1 multiple times throughout the night in hopes that their favorite superstar will walk through the curtain. After all 30 participants enter the contest, we are eventually left with one winner who earns the biggest reward; a shot at a championship of their choosing at WrestleMania.

Building the actual Royal Rumble match can be a tough task and sometimes fans find themselves questioning the outcomes and stories that are weaved into the match. But, with all the bad that comes with the match, there is plenty of good. Whether it be a wrestler entering at number 1 and outlasting all 29 of their opponents or someone getting thrown out within seconds of them entering the fray, the Royal Rumble has produced some of the best moments in WWE’s history.

John Cena returns from injury at the 2008 Royal Rumble

My goal is to build the best Royal Rumble using a superstar’s entry from a previous year in which they succeeded, shocked or surprised. There is many ways to build a Royal Rumble which is what makes it fun to watch. Which #1 entry had the most memorable performance? At #20, did someone have the night of their lives? The only rule is that a superstar can be only used in this list(unless it is a totally different character). Check out entry #’s 1-30 to see where your favorite Royal Rumble performances will land.

Clash of Champions Predictions

via WWE

Smackdown Live is set to host Clash of Champions with every title on the line. The Usos, Charlotte Flair, Baron Corbin and AJ Styles all head into the night with the goal of successfully defending their championships. Elsewhere around the card, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will literally be fighting for their WWE careers. With the stakes high, the rulers of the blue brand, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, will be right in the middle of the action as special guest referees.

Which competitors will gain momentum, gain credibility, and gain gold as the Royal Rumble nears? Tune into the WWE Network on December 17 to find out and check out our predictions for the night’s biggest matches.

1.) Kickoff Match

Mojo Rawley vs. Zack Ryder

Kyle Boris: Ever since the Hype Bros broke up, the rivalry between the two has not gotten much time on Smackdown Live. However, the animosity between the former partners has escalated on Twitter of all places. Ryder and Rawley have traded jabs online with each one getting more and more personal. It’s unfortunate this has been pretty much ignored heading into Clash of Champions with the pay-off match taking place on the Kickoff show. Let’s see if these two can get the crowd around them, but ultimately I think Mojo gets the win. Who knows if this leads to a mid card run as a heel for the former leader of the Hype Train.

Result: Mojo by pinfall

Jason Zoblin: This is actually an interesting bout because both competitors are out for revenge. Rawley is seeking revenge because he thinks Ryder has been holding him back while Ryder is out for redemption after Rawley stabbed him in the back. This is a way for both of them to get out of the crowded tag team picture and strive for a singles push I think this will ultimately lead to a bigger push for Mojo who will come out on top on the Kickoff Show.

Result: Mojo by pinfall

2.) Tag Team Match

Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers

KB: Poor Breezango. They’re gonna get squashed aren’t they? This is the case of another Smackdown Live storyline that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. When The Fashion Files first started it was the hottest program in the WWE and as it cooled off it was just kind of implied that BB stood for Bludgeon Brothers and then we got a last minute announcement that the two teams would face off on Sunday. Harper and Rowan have looked good so far in their short run and they’ll probably take care of Breeze and Dango rather easily.

Result: Bludgeon Brothers by pinfall


JZ: This is going to be fantastic to watch because these teams are total opposites. Breezango is fun and glamorous as evident on the Fashion Files, and the Bludgeon Brothers are extremely dark and edgy. This will be a squash match to kill some time because I think the Bludgeon Brothers are being built to be a dominant force.It’ll be intriguing to see what they can do once they get in the ring with the likes of the Usos and the New Day and because of that they’ll need some momentum starting with a win over Breezango.

Result: Bludgeon Brothers by pinfall

3.) United States Championship

Baron Corbin(c) vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Bobby Roode

KB: The Glorious One Bobby Roode is the perfect fit for the United States Championship. He could really bring more prestige to the title. That being said, I still think it’s early in Baron Corbin’s reign and he’ll probably weasel his way into a win against Roode and Ziggler. Without an influx of babyfaces in the midcard, the feud between Roode and Corbin should continue heading toward the Royal Rumble.

Result: Corbin by pinfall

JZ:  Bobby Roode and Baron Corbin have been feuding for quite some time now and even though I prefer Roode as a heel, I’ve like the work these two have put forward. Throwing Ziggler into the mix makes it interesting because Roode has been feuding with him since he got called up, adding heat to their rivalry. It pains me to say that Ziggler will probably lose and take the pin because he deserves better, but that’s the truth. I don’t think Corbin is cutting it as champion and he’s being overlooked completely. With that being said, I think the result will be glorious, and we’ll see a new champion.

Result: Roode by pinfall

4.) Smackdown Live Women’s Championship: Lumberjack Match

Charlotte Flair(c) vs. Natalya

KB: When these two women lock up, you’re almost guaranteed a 4-star match. These two have tons of chemistry and the added distraction of the lumberjacks is a nice change of pace. At this point in their careers, Charlotte is the superior wrestler and it would be nice to see her get a long reign with the belt. However, with the lumberjacks at ringside, including Carmella who still controls the Money in the Bank, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Natalya or The Princess of Staten Island walk away as new champion.

Result: Charlotte by submission


JZ:  The new storyline with the Riott squad has been interesting to follow. To have some NXT stars come in and tear the house down has been exciting to watch. Now, having them ringside will add a different element to this championship match. I think this will be the last match between Natalya and Charlotte for awhile since they’ve fought many times. It will be one last brutal fight between them and it should be a solid match because they both work so well together. I just think Charlotte is too dominant and deserves to hold the belt for awhile until Carmella ultimately cashes in down the road.

Result: Charlotte by pinfall

5.) Fatal Four Way Tag Team Championship

The Usos(c) vs. The New Day vs. Rusev & Aiden English vs. Gable & Benjamin

KB: This match has the potential to really steal the show. Expect a lot of near falls as all of these teams have a good argument to be the Tag champions. With all these teams involved, it feels like this contest could be one where the Usos lose without getting pinned. My heart says Rusev Day will reign, but my gut says Gable and Benjamin will win their first big match together. It would be a great story for Shelton who has overcome a lot in his second stint with the company.

Result: Gable & Benjamin by pinfall


JZ: This contest is stacked with talent. It has been fantastic to see all of these tag teams step up in the past few months on Smackdown Live because Raw is lacking in the Tag Team division. This will be an exciting matchup seeing everyone go at it. It’s hard to say who’s coming out on top, but because Gable and Benjamin were supposed to get their championship match a while back, I think they deserve to win and they’ll be looking for vengeance.

Result: Gable & Benjamin by pinfall

6.) WWE Championship Match

AJ Styles(c) vs. Jinder Mahal

KB: Jinder Mahal doesn’t have a ton of momentum heading into his rematch for the WWE Championship against AJ Styles. He’s coming off a loss to HHH on the WWE’s recent overseas tour in a match that was being billed as “The Biggest Match in India’s History”. Somehow, Mahal didn’t come out on top, but now the focus turns to his rematch with the Phenomenal One. Styles needs to be champ heading to the Rumble and despite the expected interference from the Singh Brothers, AJ should be able to make it happen and leave Clash of Champions on top.

Result: Styles by pinfall


JZ: I’m looking forward to this rematch. Jinder was not my favorite champion to say the least, but he made things interesting and he was entertaining to watch as champion because he seemed unstoppable with the help of The Singh Brothers. This should be a captivating rematch, but I can’t see Jinder becoming a two-time champion. I want to see AJ hold the title for a while heading into Wrestlemania so at Clash of Champions we will have a phenomenal win.

Result: Styles by pinfall

7.) Tag Team Match: Special Referees- Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon

Owens & Zayn vs. Nakamura & Orton

(If Owens & Zayn lose they’re fired)

KB: There’s no way Owens and Zayn are getting fired…right? Arguably the two most exciting members of Smackdown Live, the former enemies are the main focus each and every week. It’s been teased that we might be seeing a Daniel Bryan heel turn, but perhaps WWE is setting us up a for a swerve leading to a Shane McMahon turn in which he helps Owens and Zayn keep their job. There’s plenty of different dynamics heading into the match and it’ll be interesting to see which one is explored. Could the friendship between Nakamura and Orton be short-lived? There’s plenty of speculation, but ultimately I believe we’ll get a solid match with a screwy finish in which Kevin and Sami keep theirs jobs.

Result: Owens & Zayn by pinfall


JZ: The fact that if Zayn and Owens lose they will be fired gives an added bonus to an already important match. The feud between Zayn, Owens and Shane O’ Mac has been the main focus on Smackdown and each week something crazy has happened. Zayn has been a great heel and it was a well-needed switch because his run as a face wasn’t taking him anywhere. He went from facing Mike Kanellis to being in the main event of Clash of Champions. The four of these guys always work well together and with Bryan and Shane involved there’s so much that could happen. I really think somebody will betray somebody and we will see this storyline continue, but I can’t see Zayn and Owens getting fired so I think they will somehow win this match.

Result: Owens & Zayn by pinfall

Survivor Series Predictions


Oh how a couple of weeks can really alter a card. It seems like swerve after swerve kept being thrown at the WWE Universe and ultimately the combination of swerves turned Survivor Series into must-see television.

The stacked card is highlighted by returning legends, breakout stars waiting in the wings, former rivals and prolific stables. And oh yeah, Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles.

As we’ve been told multiple times, Survivor Series is the only time of the year where Raw and Smackdown superstars go head-to-head. That being the case, we’ll be treated to quite a few unique match-ups. Let’s get a deeper look at the card as WWE attempts to put together one of the best shows of the year.

1.) Cruiserweight Championship

Enzo Amore(c) vs. Kalisto

EnzobadaboomKyle Boris: This match will kick off Survivor Series, but I don’t expect it to tear the roof down. Enzo will probably have quite a few minutes to speak his mind before the match and that will probably be the highlight of the match. Kalisto is a formidable opponent, but he doesn’t seem to be the right one to take the belt from Amore. Shenanigans from Drew Gulak will most likely spoil Kalisto’s opportunity.

Prediction: Enzo by pinfall

Jason Zoblin: This has been an exciting feud thus far. Enzo is a fantastic heel, he’s incredible on the mic and he has really come into his own after his end with his former partner, Big Cass. He’s making 205 Live relevant with Neville out of the picture. Kalisto is incredibly talented as well and it’s been great to see the two compete against each other because of how different their styles are. However, I think Enzo holds on to the belt, but only until Neville returns to claim his throne.

Prediction: Enzo by pinfall

2.) Champion vs. Champion

The Miz vs. Baron Corbin

KB: If we’re heading toward the direction of WWE feuds taking place on Twitter then I am all for it. We already know how dynamic The Miz can be on the mic(and on his phone), but this feud really shed light to how good Baron Corbin can be when pushed and matched up with someone like The Miz.

As for the match itself, it’s not going to win match of the night honors, but the hostility these two shared on social media definitely make this more intriguing than it had any right being.

Prediction: Miz by pinfall

JZ: The constant bickering between these two has been great to see. These are two brash, angry superstars and it will be interesting to see them go at it. Corbin had been coasting for a couple months after losing his Money in the Bank opportunity, but the United States Championship has gotten him back on track. He now has the chance to prove himself against a veteran like The Miz. However, The Miz’s experience will be the difference here.

Prediction: Miz by pinfall

3.) Champions vs. Champions

Cesaro & Sheamus vs. The Usos

KB: Tag wrestling has been sensational in 2017 leading up to a champions vs. champions match between The Bar and The Usos. I fully expect both of these tandems to pull out every stop to prove who is the best of the best. The Usos have been at this for years and are arguably doing their best work of their careers, while The Bar got thrown together and somehow turned into one of the most exciting and fun to watch teams. This really could go either way, but I think Jimmy and Jey get it done because of their longer history.

Prediction: The Usos by pinfall

Ai1UjGnYJZ: The Usos are one of my favorite tag teams in the WWE right now. They’ve been so captivating as heels that the crowd has recently recognized it and been on their side. Sheamus and Cesaro have also been great as their battles are always intense. Because Sheamus and Cesaro were thrown into this match at the last moment, I think the Usos have the advantage.

Prediction: Usos by pinfall

4.) Women’s 5-on-5 Elimination Match

Team Raw: Alicia Fox, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax & Asuka


Team Smackdown: Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, Tamina & Natalya

KB: Is there any way this doesn’t end up being Asuka as the sole survivor forced to take down the entire Smackdown Live team? Asuka can’t pick up her first loss here, especially in a tag match. Her match with Emma was decent, but Survivor Series has real potential to be her coming out party.

Prediction: Team Raw as Asuka is the sole survivor


JZ: This one should be a fun one and as is the case of late, the women have the chance to steal the show. What would really make the match great is a return from Paige. She’s been out long enough and her return could give Team Smackdown the  spark they need.

Prediction: Team Smackdown with Becky as the sole survivor

5.) 6-Man Tag Match

The Shield vs. The New Day

KB: In a contest containing six of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE, it’ll be interesting to see whose side the fans are on. This would be the perfect match to start the main card with as both teams will get the crowd roaring.

The Shield have just recently gotten back together so it makes sense to have them go over, but I wouldn’t be surprised if best friends Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn find their way to the ring for this one leading to a dirty finish.

Prediction: The Shield by pinfall

via Sportskeeda

JZ: Two of the most popular stables going face-to-face so it should be gripping to watch. It has been amazing to see The Shield come back to life because the trio are at their best when they’re together. Roman, Dean and Seth will be out for revenge and Survivor Series is their chance to get redemption.

Prediction: The Shield by pinfall

6.) Champion vs. Champion

Alexa Bliss vs. Charlotte Flair

KB: Bliss vs. Natalya didn’t have anyone jumping out of their seat with excitement. The last-minute substitution of Charlotte Flair immediately turned this into a star-studded affair that everyone will be tuned in for. With Charlotte just recently getting the belt, I think she’ll use that momentum to represent the blue brand.

Prediction: Charlotte Flair by submission

JZ: It’s exciting to see Charlotte in this match and champion again. She is easily the best female athlete in the WWE right now and she is a fantastic addition to this PPV. With that being said, Alexa Bliss is a great heel, and can bring it every step of the way regardless of the opponent. This one is a toss up, but I don’t see Charlotte losing.

Prediction: Charlotte by pinfall

7.) Men’s 5-on-5 Elimination Match

Team Raw: Kurt Angle, HHH, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor & Samoa Joe


Team Smackdown: Shane McMahon, John Cena, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura & Bobby Roode

KB: Angle vs. Cena. Joe vs. Roode. HHH vs. Shane. Balor vs. Nakamura.

The combinations are endless for this match and each one gets more and more exciting. No matter the logistics surrounding the fight for brand supremacy, this match is what it is; 10 of the most amazing figures on the roster thrown together to make moment after moment.

In the end, I think Orton is one of the survivors because of his fantastic record in these sort of matches(see below) and his new buddy Nakamura will join him to help fend off Team Raw after HHH and Kurt fight with each other.

Prediction: Team Smackdown as Orton and Nakamura are the remaining members

JZ: Throughout the past few weeks, it has been awesome to see the two brands get ready for this encounter. With Smackdown taking Raw under siege, and then Raw retaliating this week, it has been thrilling stuff.

This match could end up the starting point for future feuds between possibly HHH and Kurt Angle or even Shane McMahon. It’s going to be a fun one to watch, but I do think Angle will lead his team to victory.

Prediction: Team Raw as Kurt Angle and HHH are the only survivors

8.) Champion vs. Champion

Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles

KB: I didn’t hate Jinder Mahal as much as everyone else, but man is the a phenomenal upgrade. Not many actually wanted to see Mahal and Lesnar fight. Lesnar/Styles is the money match and really turned a good card into a great card. I think the two styles of these competitors will gel well together and if Brock can go at least 15 minutes this has potential to be Match of the Year because of the aura around it.

Prediction: Lesnar by pinfall

downloadJZ: This showdown will be one for the ages. A Wrestlemania worthy event. AJ Styles is not only one of the best athletes, but also has become a crowd favorite in such a short time. Brock is ruthless and fierce like a bull and it will be intriguing to see how Styles attempts to take down the beast. My heart says AJ, but logistically Brock has to stay strong leading up to Wrestlemania. At the end of the night, Lesnar will remain the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion.

Prediction: Lesnar by pinfall

WWE Hell in a Cell Predictions


Smackdown Live has been know for exciting matches and feuds because of the way the talent is utilized and the matches are usually the focus compared to Raw which has always been known for it’s gripping and compelling storylines. So, with that being said, Hell in a Cell should produce some thrilling moments. With two traditional Hell in a Cell matches slated for the PPV along with a few title matches, the balanced card is capable of exceeding expectations.

1.) Kickoff Match

Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. Hype Bros

Kyle Boris: The fact that this match is taking place on the Kickoff show should give Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin a decent amount of time to show off some of their chemistry. The Hype Bros have been teasing a break-up for a few weeks now and expect to see that culminate at Hell in a Cell as they the animosity grows. I wouldn’t be surprised to See Zack Ryder leave Mojo hanging as he looks for the hot tag.

Prediction: Gable & Benjamin by pinfall

Jason Zoblin: The kickoff match should be a great way for Shelton Benjamin to get back into the spotlight. It is great to see him back in WWE and his new partnership is a great addition to the tag division. On the other side, the Hype Bros are a great mix of fun and this match will do what it’s supposed to do; get the crowd HYPE. I think because of his experience and the roll they are on, Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable will pick up the win.

Prediction:  Gable & Benjamin by pinfall

2.) Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

KB: GLORIOUS! Following in Nakamura’s footsteps of working with Dolph Ziggler for his first program on Smackdown Live, look for Bobby Roode to make his presence known as he picks up his first big win on the main roster. I’d love to see this match open the show so a hot crowd can really get behind Roode. Another loss for Ziggler will really leave him in no man’s land and maybe the only answer is a move to RAW.

Prediction: Roode by pinfall

via WWE

JZ: Dolph Ziggler has always been an underrated superstar in WWE. His in-ring abilities and mic skills are uncanny, but it always seems like something is missing. Bobby Roode is the best new superstar on Smackdown Live and has easily transitioned after his successful career in NXT. Roode is incredibly talented, and no matter what Ziggler says, Bobby has the best entrance in the business. I ultimately think this match will be a stepping stone for him to move up on the roster and Bobby Roode will have a GLORIOUS win over Dolph Ziggler.

Prediction: Roode by pinfall

3.) Randy Orton vs. Rusev

KB: Can handsome Rusev get a big PPV win? The man is one of the more talented members of the Blue Brand, but has gotten lost in the shuffle along with the likes of Sami Zayn. Randy Orton recently appeared on Edge and Christian’s podcast and stated he knows where he is in his career and wants to help put over some of the younger guys. Maybe he does that this Sunday, though I expect some shenanigans from Aiden English to help Rusev pick up the huge victory over The Viper.

Prediction: Rusev by pinfall

JZ: This feud has been brewing ever since SummerSlam. Both of the matches between these two have been quick and we really haven’t seen how well these two can fight each other. At the end of the night, because of Orton’s experience, he should come up with the win thanks to an RKO outta nowhere!

Prediction: Orton by pinfall

4.) Women’s Championship

Natalya(c) vs. Charlotte

220px-Charlotte_WrestleMania_Axxess_31_(cropped)KB: Is anyone enjoying Natalya’s reign as champion? I know she’s been in the business for a while now and this is a great milestone for her, but it’s disappointing that we still haven’t gotten a feud between Charlotte and Becky Lynch. That’s the feud everyone wants to see and hopefully we get that sooner than later. It can begin to take shape with a championship win for Charlotte at Hell in a Cell.

Prediction: Charlotte by submission

JZ: Natalya has been a successful champion as of late and she has proven herself to be an absolute force. With all the competition in the division, it has made her look stronger because she is the one holding the belt. However, this is no question Charlotte’s time to shine. The second she became a Smackdown Live superstar she has wanted the title and now as a babyface, she’ll have the crowd behind her and I think she will conquer the women’s division on the Blue Brand. 

Prediction: Charlotte by pinfall

5.) United States Championship

AJ Styles(c) vs. Baron Corbin

KB: The Phenomenal One can make anyone look good so I’m looking forward to seeing some of Corbin’s best work, yet. Styles will bring out the best in Corbin to make him look like a formidable opponent, but at the end of the day Corbin will be no match for Styles and his extensive offensive arsenal. Styles should eventually move onto bigger things and enter the WWE Title picture, but Corbin shouldn’t be the one to take the belt away from him.

Prediction: Styles by pinfall

JZ: AJ Styles has been a perfect addition to not only Smackdown, but to WWE in general. He is easily one of the best athletes in the business and is extremely exciting to watch. At this point, I think Baron Corbin is essentially a waste after he lost his Money in the Bank cash-in against Jinder.

Eventually, good heels become great when they get some fan recognition, but unfortunately Corbin hasn’t reached that level, yet. I really think this match should have been a Triple Threat with Tye Dillinger thrown in the mix but unfortunately it did not happen. This will be a quick match where AJ will retain, and hopefully it will get Corbin out of the title race, because he is not as deserving as Dillinger.

Prediction: Styles by pinfall

6.) Tag Team Championship – Hell in a Cell

New Day(c) vs. The Usos

KB: This match, like it seemingly always does, will probably steal the show. These two teams put on great match after great match and now they’re heading into Hell in a Cell. In what should be the final match of their feud, I’m preparing to see a back and forth affair between two fantastic teams. I think the hot potato with the belts will come to an end, however, as the New Day get the win and move onto new competition.

Prediction: New Day by pinfall


JZ: This feud has become personal throughout the weeks and it has progressed into probably the most brutal stipulation to date, Hell in a Cell.

The Usos are brash, raw and they can flat out wrestle. The New Day’s gimmick can get tired at times, but they have always remained relevant and they can seriously work a crowd. I feel this will be the last match between them for awhile and another tag team will be waiting for the winner. I see the New Day ultimately retaining.

Prediction: New Day by pinfall

7.) Hell in a Cell

Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon

KB: Kevin Owens precisely said he was going to throw Shane McMahon off the Hell in a Cell. I don’t think he’ll actually do that… I mean, he can’t, right?

Either way, we all know these two are capable of performing some crazy stunts and will probably lead to some of the best moments of the night. I really do believe that Owens is going to do what he said and just beat down Shane until he can’t anymore.

Prediction: Owens by pinfall

JZ: With Kevin Owens destroying Vince and insulting Shane’s family, this rivalry has gotten so vindictive that this match will be brutal. Something will big happen whether Shane jumps off the cell again or someone goes through it, but because of the circumstances of the feud and how personal it has become, Shane will be victorious and be the hero for the company.  

Prediction: McMahon by pinfall

8.) WWE Championship

Jinder Mahal(c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

KB: Nakamura has wrestled all over the world against some of the best competitors in the world. That being said, I can’t see a wrestler of that nature losing to Jinder Mahal twice. No offense to the Modern Day Maharaja, but the Jinder Mahal project isn’t working and it needs to come to an end. This reign has built him up enough that when the WWE goes on their India tour, it won’t matter if he has the belt or not. Shinsuke is where the money is and it’s time for the belt to change hands.

Prediction: Nakamura by pinfall

003_Jinder_0532017rf_522b--64b6980468b766ba0fe8146e90193984JZ: To be honest, I think this whole fiasco with Jinder should end soon. WWE really wanted to grow their fanbase in India so this experiment was plausible, but I did not think it would last this long. Shinsuke is a great competitor and is absolutely flawless in the ring. He deserves to win, but I’m afraid this Jinder Mahal reign might last a little longer.

Prediction: Mahal by pinfall

WWE No Mercy Predictions

via WWE

WWE No Mercy has two WrestleMania main event caliber matches on the card as John Cena and Roman Reings will headline alongside the Universal Title Match between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman. The Staples Center should be rocking as four of the company’s biggest stars look to make their moment.

The rest of the card has potential with four title matches and a rematch between the Demon Finn Baylor and Bray Wyatt. Alexa Bliss, The Miz, Neville, and Ambrose & Rollins will look to continue their strong runs as champions while Emma, Nia Jax, Jason Jordan and Enzo Amore look to win their win first singles championships.

Take an in-depth look at each match and be sure to check out all the action at 8PM on Sunday, September 24 on the WWE Network.

1.) Intercontinental Title

The Miz(c) vs. Jason Jordan

The_Miz_2013Kyle Boris: Quiet on the set. This is the match that should open the show. The crowd should have a ton of energy at the start of the night and hopefully Jason Jordan can use that to garner a positive reaction. The live audiences haven’t fully committed to Jordan yet, but he’s been an absolute joy to watch in the ring and people will start to take notice.

Once Jordan starts to connect, he’ll really be off and running, but until then he won’t be ready to take down the leader of the Miztourage. The Miz will come out on top and continue his reign as champion.

Prediction: Miz by pinfall

Jason Zoblin: This storyline has been building for a couple months now and I cannot wait for the send off. Jason Jordan needed a push, and the storyline with Kurt Angle could have been handled better, but it is finally starting to pick up steam. Jordan is an incredible athlete and he has put together a great string of matches including bouts against John Cena and Roman Reigns.  Now, the Miz will be stepping in and will be a huge test for the former tag champ. The IC champ has turned into a major player on Monday nights and his mic skills are uncanny making him one of the best heels the company has produced. With all of that, I think Jason Jordan will defy the odds and after a long, grueling match, will take home his first singles championship.

Prediction: Jordan by pinfall

2.) Raw Tag Team Title

Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins(c) vs. Sheamus & Cesaro

KB: The tag team division in the WWE has been on fire of late with The New Day and The Usos running things over on Smackdown Live and the four competitors in this match tearing it up on Raw. Expect a hard-hitting affair featuring a bunch of great spots. The contest will probably see quite a few near falls, but it seems too early to take the belts off the new-look Shield.

Prediction: Ambrose & Rollins by pinfall

JZ: Cesaro and Sheamus have really grown into quite the impressive tag team even after dropping the belts. They are two of the more talented athletes on the roster and have worked very well together. However, I have really enjoyed Seth and Dean’s title reign over the past month. They have a new sense of confidence in the tag team division and it is great to see 2/3 of the Shield back together. Rollins and Ambrose are going to take care of Sheamus and Cesaro, and I don’t see them losing the belts anytime soon… as long as they can stay on the same page.

Prediction: Ambrose & Rollins by pinfall

3.) Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt

KB: When it comes to these two wrestlers, you’re looking at two of the more unique characters in the business. That being said, both of these guys seem to be stuck in a rut. I’m not sure where this feud goes after this. Bray can’t fall cleanly to Balor again, right? But if he wins, are we getting a Round 3? Does anyone really want that?

Both of these men are missing something(I.E. Balor Club/Wyatt Family) so maybe we’ll get a little surprise toward the end of the bout.

Prediction: Wyatt by pinfall


JZ:  Both of these competitors have been extremely talented throughout their careers. Bray has turned himself into a main eventer, and even recently a world champion. The feud he has been having with Finn has been personal and this could shape up to be a blood match between the two. Balor is angry and fed up with Bray’s antics and will ultimately take him down as Wyatt’s weird and unorthodox tactics will not lead to a victory. 

Prediction: Balor by pinfall

4.) Raw Women’s Title

Alexa Bliss(c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax vs. Emma vs.  Bayley

KB: The addition of Bayley into this match is an interesting one as the spokesperson for #HugLife showed more intensity on Raw this week then we’ve seen from her in months. I expect a strong showing from Bayley in her return, with Nia Jax impressing as well, however the champ, Alexa Bliss, should be able to find a way to steal a win in this multi-person match.

Prediction: Bliss by pinfall

JZ:  The women’s division has truly been an absolute force over the past couple of years with some roadblocks along the way, but now the female athletes are truly a force to be reckoned with which is evident by the fact that five women are walking into No Mercy with a legitimate shot at taking home the gold.

Alexa Bliss has been an exciting heel champion. She’s a bully, and it’s been gripping to see how each and every female contender has tried to take the title away from her. It was awesome to see Bayley back and get placed into this match seeing as those two have unfinished business. Ever since she ended her alliance with the champ, Nia Jax has led the charge, however, the numbers game could be too much if the other four women team up to take out the strongest competitor. In the end, Alexa will weasel her way to the win and retain.

Prediction: Bliss by pinfall

5.) Cruiserweight Title

Neville(c) vs. Enzo Amore

KB: Does anyone think Enzo can actually hang with Neville in between the ropes? Amore has been beaten down by someone different every week whether it be The Miz or Braun Strowman. He’s been using heel tactics of late and the only conceivable thing that could make this contest intriguing is a classic face/heel switcheroo with The Realest Guy in the Room winning the belt by cheating to a chorus of boos.

Prediction: Enzo by pinfall

Neville_bio--6f4fc678305919b59e064680a6cf6c2aJZ: Neville has turned into such a strong champion and has made 205 Live a legitimate brand and has truly created a name for himself. He is also extremely well-rounded and he just seems to get better and better each week. His opponent Enzo is a funny character, and is fantastic on the mic, but he does not have the skill set yet to lead 205 Live.

Prediction: Neville by pinfall

6.) John Cena vs. Roman Reigns

KB: Somehow, with all the trash talking and low blows these two  have delivered, they still have yet to come to actual blows. At No Mercy, these two behemoths will look to steal the show in what should be a “passing of the torch” moment with Reings going over as Cena heads to Hollywood. It’ll be interesting to hear the crowd’s reactions throughout as both men are arguably the most polarizing figures in the company.

Prediction: Reigns by pinfall

JZ: Oh baby, I can’t wait for this one. John Cena has been THE guy for many fans, including myself. No matter how many times a year he’s fighting, he’s been consistently putting on great matches. On the other side, say what you want about Roman, he has been a great performer, regardless of how everyone feels about him. This one will be a long, well fought, exciting, and personal bout, but I think with his big-match experience, Cena will come out on top.

Prediction: Cena by pinfall

7.) Universal Title

Brock Lesnar(c) vs. Braun Strowman

169_RAW_04172017cm_4655--3f3af3788e23ec55d4d00b7869a146c1KB: Is there anyone bigger in the business right now than Braun Strowman? I mean that figuratively and literally. This man is on fire and he deservedly needs a belt to back up his star power. A win over Brock Lesnar would shoot him to the moon with no sign of turning back.

Is WWE ready to take the belt off the Beast Incarnate? Well, they should be and Braun Strowman should be the one to conquer said Beast.

Prediction: Strowman by pinfall

JZ: BRRRRRROCK LESNAR and the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman! It’s been amazing to see how far Braun has come as turned into such a key part of the Raw brand. He’s a destructive force, an incredible athlete and can hold his own with anyone in the locker room. This is Braun’s moment; main eventing at the Staples Center against the Mayor of Suplex City. The Monster Among Men seems unbeatable right now, but we’ve seen Brock overcome almost every other obstacle in his way, and it might be too soon for Strowman to take down the Universal Champion.

Prediction: Lesnar by pinfall

Dream 3-on-3 Teams for the 2020 Olympics: Fictional

By: Kyle Boris


The 2020 Summer Olympics are still three years away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start to get excited at all the possible scenarios that could play out in Tokyo. How will Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez follow up their 2016 performance? Is Michael Phelps really done? What else can we expect from Katie Ledecky?

If that wasn’t enough, the International Olympic Committee just announced a brand new event that has fans around the globe putting together dream teams. 2020 in Tokyo will feature the debut of the 3-on-3 basketball event.

The U.S. men’s and women’s teams have dominated the sport recently and a once exciting event has stalled because of the dominance. To counter that, the 3-on-3 tournament has inserted a newfound passion and excitement into Olympic basketball.

Now, we’re still not entirely sure who will be playing in this event or if NBA players will even be allowed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t put together a few dream teams to represent the United States. And by dream teams…I mean dream teams. Because, sure, we could go swim through the talented rosters of the NBA to put together possible teams(we will), but why not go to the place where skill and talent all depends on the people making it. Here are some fictional 3-on-3 teams from television and film that I’d like to see repping the red, white and blue.

Dunder Mifflin

PG: Michael Scott

SF: Stanley Hudson

PF: Jim Halper

Okay, if the boys at Dunder Mifflin are going to bring home the gold, Jim is going to have to carry this squad. As seen in the Season 1 episode “Basketball”, Michael is more of a trash talker that cannot back it up. He also isn’t afraid of fighting with his teammates as evident when he yells at Stanley for not being good at basketball.


Thinking about it now, the only chance we have is if Dwight initiates a fake fire drill.

Chances of Gold: 5%

Bel-Air Academy

Coach Smiley

PG: Cornflake

SG: Carlton Banks

SF: Will Smith

Yes, Carlton and Cornflake will be absolute liabilities in the backcourt, but this team is all about the Fresh Prince. I mean, this man was nailing shots off the jump ball. How can anyone guard that? Is that even legal?

Probably, not.

If defenses show a little respect to the guards and Will has some space it’s a lock for the gold. If the game comes down to the wire, though, we might be in some trouble. Coach Smiley better draw up something better than this.

Chances of Gold: 35%

Flint Tropics

Coach Jackie Moon

PG: Ed Monix

SG: Clarence Withers

C: Jackie Moon

Now, this? This is a backcourt. After putting aside their differences, Monix and Withers combined to make a perfect mix of savvy vet and exciting young gun. Teams will have a tough time guarding the trio and will have to always be prepared for the alley-oop that the Tropics will have stored in their back pocket.

The X-factor of this team is the player/coach Jackie Moon. If he can keep his cool, restrain from cursing out referees, fighting bears in steel cages and harassing fans while still being a team player, then I think the Tropics have a chance.


Hmm, not looking great.

Chances of Gold: 55%


PG: Troy Bolton

SG: Chad Danforth

SF: Zeke Baylor

I really just want to see this because of the prospect of a possible in-game dance off between Zac Efron and the Wildcats and Team Russia.

giphy (18)

Nothing screams ‘Pride for your country’ like a random dance in the middle of the game.

Chances of Gold: 12%


Coach Arthur Chaney

PG: Tom Stewart

SG: Air Bud

SF: Josh Framm

Ain’t no rule says the dog can’t play basketball!

I haven’t read the official basketball handbook and neither should you. Just let the dog play, unless you’re afraid of getting beaten by a dog. That’s how Coach Arthur Chaney goes about his business and gets into the heads of the opposing coaching staff. It’ll be tough for two kids and a dog to stand up for the US of A, but Chaney could be the real difference maker.

Even if this team gets bounced in the first round, we need to at least get an Air-Bud shoe deal out of this. Big Baller Brand doesn’t currently have much of an audience when it comes to dogs, but the Air-Bud 7’s could put an end to that.


Chances of Gold: K-9%

Tune Squad

PG: Bugs Bunny

SG: Michael Jordan

SF: Bill Murray


This is it. This is the squad. THIS trio took down the Monstars on the biggest stage of them all; not to mention the stakes that were involved in that one. Michael Jordan would still be signing autographs on Moron Mountain if it weren’t for a last second play that defied physics.

giphy-downsized copy.gif

No other 3-on-3 team in the world has faced the kind of competition that the Tune Squad has gone up against. Spain, Australia, Serbia and every other country better watch out because an actor, a rabbit and a baseball player are coming for the GOLD.

Chances of Gold: 110%

10 Possible WrestleMania 33 Moments


WrestleMania is already right around the corner and the card is shaping up to be an exciting, yet long(13 matches), night of wrestling. All of the major belts are on the line, personal feuds will shine bright and returning stars will make their presence felt. With plenty of action at the helm, fans can be in store for quite a few “WrestleMania moments”. Moments like when Hogan slammed Andre, Lesnar broke the streak, and Daniel Bryan rising to the top of the WWE are just a few examples of WrestleMania moments that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Where on the card will the best WrestleMania moments come from this year in Orlando? Will a breakout star solidify her place in the business? Could two monsters of the industry make up for a poor match years ago? Will the fans chant for a victorious Roman Reigns?(probably not  that one) We won’t find out for sure until April 2nd, but let’s take a look at 10 Possible WrestleMania Moments that could define the show.

Samoa Joe or Braun Strowman Win The Andre the Giant Battle Royal

Right Braun_Strowman_in_September_2016now, the Andre the Giant Battle Royal boasts Curt Hawkins…Mojo Rawley…Apollo Crews…and the Big Show as the only participants in this year’s annual event so far. Not really the Mount Rushmore of the WWE. The rest of the entrants will probably consist of Ziggler, Breezango, Jinder Mahal, Kalisto, Titus O’Neil and whoever else doesn’t have a place on the card. However, none of those guys look primed to win this year’s event.

There are, however, a couple of big names without a match. Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe are both without a match even though they will probably be involved with major angles during the show. Strowman could possibly interfere in the Taker/Roman showdown while Joe could make his presence felt by helping either Kevin Owens or HHH.

Hopefully, one of these men get the chance to actually have a match. Either man could potentially use the battle royal to showcase their dominance as they steamroll through the competition rather easily. The ending would probably come down to them ultimately eliminating Sami Zayn(sorry Sami) to win the match and go on to hoist the Andre the Giant trophy after a dominating performance.

John Cena Proposes to Nikki Bella

Sometimes, the WWE is more than just wrestling. Okay, more than just sometimes. Even though the idea of John Cena getting on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend is nauseating to most, it would be a great opportunity for the company to gain mainstream attention. The Total Bellas’ cameras will probably be filming as well so they could kill two birds with one stone.

The story writes itself and it would give WWE a love angle that could turn into not only a WrestleMania moment, but also a viral moment. WWE doesn’t always do romance angles right, but when they do, like when Miss Elizabeth and Randy Savage reunited, it makes for a great feel-good experience. I personally want to see it happen so that I can say  I witnessed a grown man propose in jorts.

Bray Wyatt Picks Up His First WrestleMania Win

Who would have thought that a year after being humiliated by  John Cena and The Rock at WrestleMania 32, Bray Wyatt would be  defending the WWE Championship and headlining WrestleMania 33?

via SkySports

It truly is remarkable, but this moment could leave a sour taste in our mouths if  Wyatt is defeated by Randy Orton and sent back down the totem pole. Wyatt is on top of the world right now and is destined to be the future and lead Smackdown following WrestleMania. He deserves to defeat Orton CLEANLY and celebrate as the jam-packed arena light up their phones and bow to the Wyatt that runs the riot…err…the Bray that runs the fray…I’m sure he’ll think of something better.

The Cruiserweights Receive a Standing Ovation

Slowly, but surely, the cruiserweights are starting to find their groove. It started with the    rambunctious Rich Swann oozing personality into the division. Then, it got a serious player in Neville thrown into the mix. Jack Gallagher provided his gentleman ways along with his  unique style to the group. All three have put on great matches at the last few RAW ppv’s, but finally the cruiserweights may be ready to take it to the next level with the help of Double A .

Austin Aries had been sitting out for months on the commentating team, but when he stepped back in the ring, he immediately became the most dangerous man in the division besides Neville. The two have the experience and star power to put on a great match that should have the crowd on their feet and could theoretically begin the real Cruiserweight Revolution.

Sasha Banks Turns on Bayley

Just picture it now. Bayley overcomes the odds and retains the Raw Women’s Championship on the biggest stage of them all. Sasha and Bayley celebrate in the middle ring and Bayley offers one of her signature hugs only for Banks to strike the champion and steal her WrestleMania moment.


Banks is a great heel and we know from their days in NXT that the two former friends can put on a classic every time out. It only makes sense for the two to finally come to blows because of Sasha’s jealousy and desire to be champion.

Former Divas Fight for the Smackdown Women’s Championship

This Smackdown Women’s Title match has a lot of mystery surrounding it. We don’t even know what kind of match it’s going to be. We can probably cross out Gravy Bowl or Evening Gown matches because it’s 2017(hit up the network to see the state of women’s wrestling in the early 2000’s). The most likely scenario is a battle royal of some sorts.

Alexa Bliss is slated to face every available women on the roster which as of now is Natalya, Becky Lynch, Mickie James, Carmella and possibly Naomi, if healthy. There has to be more though, right? If not, why not just call it a fatal five way and build with what you have?

That being said, this could be a great opportunity for the WWE to bring back some former divas into the match. Kelly Kelly, Victoria, Lita and maybe even soon-to-be Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix could join in on the fun and get one more WrestleMania moment.

Jericho and Owens Hug It Out

First Brangelina. Then, JeriKO. Is everything we know about friendship and love a lie?

Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho’s friendship carried RAW for much of 2016. Whether it be their hilarious segments or 5-star matches, the two were able to captivate the audience every time out. That was until, of course, the Festival of Friendship when we found out everything was a lie.

The break-up has set up a match months in the making and ultimately could end up stealing the show in Orlando. The two are sure to have great chemistry and will put forth an emotional contest. No matter who wins, it would be great to see the two hug it out at the end just to give us a slither hope that life isn’t a lie…even if it ends with Owens attacking Jericho just like Y2J did to HBK years earlier.

AJ Hits the Styles Clash…off the Stage?

The sole purpose of this match is for them to do something crazy, right? But what could it be? AJ can carry anyone in the ring, but Shane’s move-set, besides jumping off things and those ridiculous punches, is pretty much non-existent.

They already did the table spot on Smackdown so that’s out of the question. There’s no cell for Shane to jump off so we won’t be seeing that. The only thing that comes to mind is…the stage?

Shane likes to jump. He takes your White Men Can’t Jump and jumps even higher. Hopping from crazy idea to the next, the man just won’t give up. Did he have to fight the Undertaker? Absolutely not. His legacy was already set in stone. But, he did it and fans loved him even more. Certainly he would be done after that, right? Nope. Now, he faces the best wrestler in the business and we all know he’s going to attempt to top last year’s feat. How could he possibly do that? Climb to the top of the freaking stage and ultimately eat the Styles Clash as the two fall into the abyss…

Something Spectacular for Goldberg/Lesnar

All signs are pointing to Goldberg and Brock Lesnar headlining WrestleMania and ending the show. If I would have told you that a year ago you would have thought I was stuck in 2004. But here we are. Goldberg has Brock’s number so everyone assumes Lesnar will win this time around. The question though is how?

If these two go on last, the WWE must have something special in store. If Lesnar were to just squash Goldberg it would be no different that Survivor Series and would probably lead to resonating boo’s. No one knows what it will be, but let’s just hope for something worthy of a WrestleMania moment.

Roman Reigns Beats the Undertaker Using the Tombstone




No, but seriously, we all know  Roman is going to beat The Undertaker, right? The Deadman doesn’t need a win and Reigns can benefit significantly from a win over the future hall of famer. Just imagine if all the seeds of a Reigns heel turn led to him getting boo’d out of the stadium after taking down The Undertaker with his own finishing move and in part claiming his yard. The Roman Reigns era would officially begin and half of the WWE Universe would hate nothing more than Reigns while the other half might come to respect the Big Dawg.

Elimination Chamber Preview

By Kyle Boris

Smackdown has used some solid storytelling to set up the match ups for the Elimination Chamber PPV. The Blue Brand’s first PPV of the year is also being anchored by three women’s matches, all of which are intriguing. The Wyatt family also do battle along with a free-for-all for the Tag Team Championships. The night will culminate with a traditional Elimination Chamber match for the WWE championship. Let’s take a look at each match up to see how things might play out.


Nikki Bella vs. Natalya

This one has gotten quite personal and Natalyla has been the one delivering the more brutal blows especially when taking shots at Nikki’s relationship with John Cena. Unfortunately for Natalya, I think Nikki gets the last laugh at Elimination Chamber. BTW! We all got the last laugh when Nikki posted this amazing impression of Natalya.

Prediction: Nikki Bella by pinfall

Apollo Crews & Kalisto vs. Dolph Ziggler

In reality, if Dolph Ziggler were to beat both Crews and Kalisto cleanly it would pretty much bury both young competitors. What would it say of them that both highly talented men couldn’t beat one superstar. With that, I’ll take the good guys to pick up the victory and send Ziggler on a downward spiral with his new heel ways.

Prediction: Crews & Kalisto by DQ

Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James



Of the 3 women’s matches on the card, this match intrigues me the most and hopefully we get it down the road again with the title on the line. On one hand, I think Becky needs to pick up a win because she’s been losing lately at the hands of Alexa Bliss. But, I think Mickie needs a big singles win which would be her first singles PPV win since the Royal Rumble in 2010 when she defeated Michelle McCool to become Women’s Champion.

Prediction: Mickie James by pinfall

Randy Orton vs. Luke Harper



Luke Harper is one of the more underrated wrestlers on WWE’s roster and this match could give him the spotlight needed to prove his worth as a single’s competitor, however, Randy Orton is coming off a Royal Rumble victory and needs to gain as much momentum as possible heading into WrestleMania. I’ll take Orton, but maybe we see some outside interference from a returning Erik Rowan.

Prediction: Randy Orton by pinfall


Tag Team Turmoil

American Alpha(c) vs. Slater & Rhyno vs. Breezango vs. The Ascension vs. The Usos vs. The Vaudevillains

Kyle: Ahh the classic ‘give every tag team on the roster a title opportunity that they didn’t deserve’ match. None of these teams have earned the right to hold the belts. The Vaudevillains haven’t won in ages. The Ascension picked up their first win on Smackdown in ages. Slater & Rhyno have lost all momentum. Breezango’s gimmick has actually entertained me, but does that mean the Fashion Police is going to head into WrestleMania with the belts? The Usos have the track record, but does anyone really want to see them as champs? Jordan and Gable are freaks of nature and need some more competition. Can we get The Revival called up in time for a WrestleMania match?

Prediction: American Alpha by pinfall


Smackdown Women’s Championship

Alexa Bliss(c) vs. Naomi



The Queen of glow is finally getting the shine she deserves in what is easily the biggest match of her career. A year ago, if I told you Naomi would be fighting for a women’s championship against Alexa Bliss, you would have laughed. Now, it’s happening and people are actually excited. Hopefully, Naomi gets a chance to showcase her impressive athletic ability, but ultimately, I see Bliss continuing her strong reign as champion and heading into the show of shows as champ.

Prediction: Alexa Bliss by pinfall


WWE Title Match: Elimination Chamber

John Cena(c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin vs. Bray Wyatt

This elimination chamber match is huge for shaping the landscape of WrestleMania season and it could go in quite a few different directions. Cena could retain and move on to face Orton. Maybe Styles will win and set up a triple threat with Orton and Cena at Wrestlemania? The Miz and Bray Wyatt could deservingly walk away champ as well. Corbin picked up a huge win on Smackdown so he’s in the mix too. Dean Ambrose is the wild card, but he has the Intercontinental Championship to worry about. In a coin flip, I’ll take AJ Styles to regain his title setting up a multi-man match at WrestleMania.
