2.) Sheamus vs. AJ Styles [Grudge Match]

While Asuka and Lana winning the Women’s Tag Team Championships would be a Christmas miracle, the luck of the Irish has not been with Sheamus lately. Ever since Sheamus was one of the sole survivors at WWE Survivor Series 2020, he has been losing week after week on WWE Raw. He lost to Riddle in a WWE Championship #1C match three weeks ago and he lost to AJ Styles, The Miz, and John Morrison in a 2-on-3 handicap match with Drew McIntyre last week.

In that handicap match, AJ Styles pinned Sheamus for the victory after Sheamus accidentally Brogue Kicked Drew McIntyre. The booking of Sheamus has been haphazard to the point that no one knows whether he wants to be in a tag team with McIntyre or challenge him for a future WWE Championship opportunity. Maybe it’s a mixture of both, but he will probably challenge AJ Styles to a rematch after last week’s loss and lose because Styles is the #1C and needs the momentum.

Prediction: AJ Styles

1.) Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Randy Orton & Nikki Cross [Mixed Tag Match]

As for the boldest prediction of the night, it would make sense for Randy Orton and Nikki Cross to coalesce due to their common enemies in Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss respectively. This would be a neat go-home angle to build up Orton’s upcoming match with Wyatt at TLC.

On last week’s WWE Raw, Orton and Wyatt’s main event match had an eerie non-finish that clearly leaves some unfinished business from the time Orton burned down Wyatt Family Compound in 2017. When Orton burned down that house, Sister Abigail was in the house. This means that Orton killed Sister Abigail, thereby weakening Wyatt’s spirit enough to dethrone him at WrestleMania 33. However, Sister Abigail has somehow been reincarnated into Alexa Bliss.

On the November 23, 2020 episode of WWE Raw, Alexa Bliss defeated Nikki Cross by connivingly playing with Cross’ emotions. Cross is still trying to get her friend back from under the control of The Fiend, but it seems that Bliss has fully transformed into Sister Abigail at this point. Orton knows that Sister Abigail  is The Fiend’s weakness, so he could put his head together with Nikki Cross to get Alexa Bliss back to reality and take Sister Abigail away from The Fiend once more.
