After both Cesaro and Paul Heyman, and Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter tried to get Rob Van Dam to join the respective sides of their current feud, RVD was caught in the middle of that feud and just joined it as a third party. Now this Sunday, the three men will compete in a Triple Threat Elimination Match at Extreme Rules.
Stephen’s Take: This makes me think of the old ECW days and there would be three way dances galore. This should be a good match between guys that have some history with each other. I think this is all about Cesaro becoming a bigger star and hopefully moving into that IC title picture.
Stephen’s Prediction: Cesaro
Mike’s Take: RVD, Swagger and Cesaro are going to steal the show in this match. RVD is RVD, Swagger’s in-ring work is extremely underrated, and Cesaro’s work has always been really good, and it’s been getting better recently. The “extreme” crowd in East Rutherford is going to be very into RVD, and Cesaro as well, so all the elements are there for this to be the match of the night. As for a winner, Cesaro is a no-brainer here. I wouldn’t mind seeing Swagger make RVD tap out, to help him get a little boost from this match, but this match has to end with the King of Swing living up to his nickname, then hitting the Neutralizer for the win.
Mike’s Prediction: Cesaro
Predictions for the three main event matches are still to come.
