Dominik and Rey Mysterio will win the WWE SmackDown Tag Titles

Yes, yes, we are not happy to see Seth Rollins, Dominik Mysterio, and Rey Mysterio on the same brand, since we thought the WWE Draft would end this never-ending rivalry that has become very embarrassing.

That said, this rivalry won’t last for much longer. At least, I hope that’s the case, so I will speak it into existence and be positive. And under that assumption, Seth will move on to a feud with Murphy and then maybe something bigger on Friday nights. Quietly, Seth’s current run is all about working with younger talent, such as Dominik, Aleister Black, and Humberto Carrillo. Hopefully it’ll work out better on a, to this point in 2020, better-booked show on SmackDown.

Anyway, what’s next for the Mysterios? Tagging. I think that’s pretty clear to me, and since they are two exceptional wrestlers, they will win the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships together on this run.

The Street Profits currently hold the titles and should continue to hold them for a while. But I foresee them losing to some heels, leading to an eventual title triumph for Dominik and Rey. That should be a fun tag title run.

Seth Rollins will win the Money in the Bank briefcase

Picking a Money in the Bank winner this far out is another risky play, but these are bold predictions so I don’t run as much risk of ending up with egg on my face. You’ll give me some grace, right? (Who am I kidding? This is the Internet. I am going to get destroyed no matter what!)

Seth Rollins has won the Money in the Bank briefcase once in his career, and it led to arguably the greatest cash-in ever at WrestleMania 31. Really, only Dolph Ziggler’s post-WrestleMania cash-in can compare to Rollins’ “Heist of the Century”. (Another reason why it was so great? We actually got a good line from Michael Cole! I kid, I kid, he’s actually a good commentator.)

Imagine the Friday Night Friar – or whatever we’re supposed to call him now – cutting promos with the Money in the Bank briefcase. Gold. Absolute gold. The briefcase doesn’t suit anyone on the SmackDown brand better than this version of Rollins, if you ask me, but this all may be subject to change as more characters develop on the show post-draft.
