WWE Extreme Rules 2017: 5 Bold Predictions

2 of 6


5. Austin Aries wins the Cruiserweight Championship

With little in the way of competition for the Cruiserweight division’s top two—Neville and Austin Aries—a title switch is on the cards. This will allow the feud to continue on through SummerSlam, while evening the score somewhat.

Neville’s vice grip on the Cruiserweight Championship has been entertaining, but it’s time for the heel to get his comeuppance. This reign has helped refine Neville’s character, from The Man That Gravity Forgot into The King of the Cruiserweights. He’s on top of his game, but Aries will come away with the gold.

After coming close to losing the title at Payback, Neville got himself disqualified to ensure the title remained in his hands. There will be no such finish this time around, as this contest is a Submission Match.

Neville has dominated the division since capturing the title at the Royal Rumble in January, but Aries finally overcomes The King by making him tap out.
