OK, now for a little fun to end the round table. Give me One Bold Prediction (AND I MEAN BOLD, PAL) for the rest of 2020.

KP: Andrade is the one who beats Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, just like in NXT. Then Randy Orton turns on him after they form the Legacy 2.0 stable, just like Evolution once turned on him when he won the title.

DA: As ridiculous as the first half of this year has been, predicting anything at all for the second half is bold enough all on its own. I guess my one prediction is Angel Garza will finally win a main roster championship. At this point in time, it doesn’t really matter whether it is the Tag Team Championship with Andrade or a mid-card title, but it will happen.

SS: WWE will hold shows with actual fans and it will not go well. Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn stay away until next year.

CJ: Adam Cole (BAYBAY!) wins the WWE Championship. Guessing what will happen in WWE for the rest of the year is a fool’s errand, but the possibility of Adam Cole receiving a main roster call-up/lateral move and winning the WWE Championship isn’t a far-fetched one. Look, RAW is short on credible heels not named Seth Rollins – that WWE dusted off Dolph Ziggler to work a short program with McIntyre says everything about the situation on Monday nights – and Cole has done everything there is to do in NXT, so bringing him up to serve as McIntyre’s foil seems like the next logical step.

JV: The Undisputed Era appear on RAW the night after SummerSlam. I can see the writing on the wall, and this has to happen sooner rather than later. NXT ratings are normally highest when a main roster star comes to NXT. Adam Cole and company have carried the torch for almost two years, but the ratings haven’t been an indication of this. It’s time for these four men to invade main roster programming and become forces on a larger scale.

Next. It's time for Randy Orton to recreate Legacy. dark

There you have it, folks! Asuka and the team of Bayley and Sasha Banks were voted as the top acts in the company, while the stories involving Jeff Hardy/Sheamus and Drake Maverick’s release left us shaking our heads in utter disappointment.

Hopefully, this wide-ranging retrospective on WWE’s first six months of 2020 provided you with some good (and bad) memories while preparing you for what’s to come. Who knows, maybe we’ll do a last half round table come January.

Until then, enjoy night two of The Great American Bash tonight!
