WWE Extreme Rules 2015: Another Set of Predictions


Here’s another set of predictions for tonight’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

More from WWE

WWE Extreme Rules culminates from Rosemont, IL at 8 pm ET, and can be seen on WWE network for just $9.99. Coming off one of the better WrestleMania’s in recent memory, the final card seems to leave much to be desired.

The final card looks like this:

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

Tyson Kidd and Cesaro w/Natalya (c) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E)

At last the WWE has heard the fans voice their displeasure with the New Day faction and as of late the New Day has started to find its niche. With the Usos sidelined with the injury to Jey Uso, the Kidd/Cesaro combo, needed opposition worthy of feuding with. The New Day is that team and quite frankly they are a talented bunch, despite their poor booking. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro have been one of the better tag teams put together over the last 10 years in my opinion and are just getting started. I look for the Kidd/Cesaro tag team to win this one convincingly possibly feuding next with the Lucha Dragons.

Winner: Tyson Kidd and Cesaro

Singles Match

Bad News Barrett vs. Neville

With the injuries starting to pile up for WWE Intercontinental champion Daniel Bryan, BNB needed a feud for Extreme Rules. Enter the WWE’s latest sensation Neville who has shown the ability over the past few weeks to get the most out of his matches facing the likes of Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler over the weeks. Tonight though Bad News Barrett will take him to school and at some point will get his shot at winning back the IC strap.

Winner: Bad News Barrett

Chicago Street Fight Match

Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper

This match is possibly the most exciting to look forward to with Ambrose and Harper being 2 of the WWE’s better workers on the roster. Ambrose and Harper could steal the show here and both could use the win to be honest. In a knock out, drag out brawl, I like Ambrose going over here with the possible ascend up the ladder towards main event status.

Winner: Dean Ambrose

Kiss Me Arse Match

Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus

Sheamus returned to WWE television a few months back with a new look and a new attitude. He has been on a path of destruction in his return, taking out many of the smaller talents on the roster. That list includes Daniel Bryan, Neville and his opponent Dolph Ziggler. If we know anything from Ziggler, he never backs down, doesn’t duck or dodge anyone, and he is always prepared the steal the show. In the end though, Sheamus will prove to be too much for Ziggler and will be victorious.

Winner: Sheamus

WWE Divas Championship Match

Nikki Bella (c) vs Naomi

Naomi has been one possessed woman of late defeating Natalya, Brie Bella and putting #1 contender Paige out of commission. She also in recent weeks defeated the current divas champion Nikki, and will look to do so again tonight. I love the change to Naomi’s character and honestly she could be the most talented diva on the WWE roster at the moment. She deserves a run with the WWE Diva’s title but tonight won’t be the night for that as Nikki will squeeze out a victory and retain her title.

Winner: Nikki Bella

Last Man Standing Match

Roman Reigns vs. Big Show

This feud has been physical and violent at times with Big Show getting the upper hand thus far. Physicality usually usually makes for compelling TV. However, this feud has been done over and over and has run its course. Tonight Roman Reigns will get the W, and move on to a more meaningful feud perhaps against the WWE champion (Orton or Rollins).

Winner: Roman Reigns

WWE United States Championship Match

John Cena (c) vs. Rusev w/Lana

John Cena is a 15-time World champion and has done a great deal to bring the U.S. championship back to prominence. He and Rusev have had a great feud over the past few months with entertaining matches the past two pay-per-views. Rusev has been unbelievable since he arrived on the scene last year and quite frankly deserves to be champion but in the end, I think John Cena will hold on to the title and go on quite a bit of a run with it.

Winner: John Cena

WWE World Heavyweight Championship/Steel Cage Match

Seth Rollins (c) w/J&J Security vs. Randy Orton

The WWE has done a great job of building up this feud over the past few months or so if you factor in the build to their feud before Randy Orton went on a brief hiatus, to now. With that said, Orton is a 12-time world champion and does not need the title to legitimize his status at this stage. Instead he needs to help Rollins grow and be looked at as a star and face of the company. Rollins gets the win here with help from the Authority, en route to a feud with Roman Reigns.

Winner: Seth Rollins
