4.) Ricochet (w/Dana Brooke) vs. SlapJack (w/RECKONING) [Grudge Match]
On WWE Raw two weeks ago, Ricochet lost to SlapJack while Dana Brooke defeated Reckoning. On last week’s WWE Raw, Ricochet and Dana Brooke defeated SlapJack and Reckoining in a mixed tag team match, in which Brooke picked up the win over Reckoning once again with a beautifully executed Michinoku Driver. However, Ricochet has still not picked up a win over SlapJack in one-on-one action, which he needs to defy RETRIBUTION’s ceaseless recruitment request.
RETRIBUTION’s momentum has dwindled lately, and Ali’s disappointment at RECKONING’s losses indicate that RETRIBUTION is on the verge of breaking up. Due to a mishap from RECKONING at ringside, SlapJack will probably lose here so that Ali can be disappointed in him too. The WWE could also tell the story of Dana Brooke’s support at ringside being helpful in Ricochet’s victory over SlapJack as he avoids the temptation of joining RETRIBUTION.
3.) Lana vs. Nia Jax [Grudge Match]
When the WWE books a dream match on live television, it will most certainly result in a non-finish. However, there are some positives to this foreseeable non-finish. Expect Lana to defeat Nia Jax via disqualification after Jax gets frustrated with Lana’s swift offense and dodging of her attacks. In order to tease what’s to come in their Women’s Tag Team Championship match at TLC, Jax will attempt to Samoan Drop Lana through the announce table again.
However, Asuka will make the save so that Lana remains one hundred percent for TLC. This table spot and the nine previous ones will tease a tag team tables match for the Women’s Tag Team Championships at TLC. This stipulation makes the most sense and should be added to make this match more interesting, especially since this tag match has already played out on two consecutive weeks of WWE Raw. Also, Lana tossing Nia Jax into a table at TLC to win the tag belts? Yes, please.
Prediction: Lana (via DQ)
