Predictions: TLC 2016
Another damn PPV, another set of predictions. Back to these being separate now that the Weekly Wroundup covers 3 (and soon 4) shows. My overall prediction for the entertainment value of this show? Five out of ten, tops, with Lynch-Bliss being the best match of the night.
No Disqualification Match: Nikki Bella vs. Carmella
The outcome of this match literally does not matter, but the feud is months old and going nowhere, so let's say they end it with Nikki winning and figure out some othre pairing amongst whichever four women on the roster aren't in the title picture for another couple months.
Chairs Match: Baron Corbin vs. Kalisto
Speaking of feuds that need to end. But I need to make some picks that go against what I want, and nothing wouild go more against what I want than Baron Corbin winning this match.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: Heath Slater and Rhyno vs. Randy Orton & Bray Wyatt
Orton and Wyatt win this, because Slater and Rhyno are so past done. And hopefully they drop the belts to American Alpha.
WWE Intercontinental Title Ladder Match: The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
This has to be Ziggler, right? I mean, I've lost track of the point of this feud already, but dude doesn't put his career on the line for a one month title reign. Assuming Miz only got the belt back so that Miz-Zayn could be a heel-face thing, Ziggler gets the belt back.
SmackDown Women’s Championship Tables Match: Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss
I think they're moving closer to a title change on Smackdown, but I don't think they're there yet. That, plus Alexa getting the upper hand on Smackdown this week, makes me think Becky retains.
WWE World Championship TLC Match: AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose
Gonna go AJ here. Mainly because I think Dean Ambrose has done all he has as champ. But would that end their feud? Because I'm sick of them wrestling each other, too. Ellsworth will be involved and will be used poorly.
