|The Shield’s new entrance gear!|
AJ Styles (100% Virus Free) vs Finn Balor (Demon S. Pumpkins)
Under the circumstances, with this basically being a Raw exhibition match, Finn has to win. There’s no value whatsoever in putting Styles over Balor unless you plan to somehow continue a cross-brand promotion brought on by a spur of the moment viral outbreak. Balor pumpwins.
Sort Of The Shield vs The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman & Kane (TLC Match)
Roman Reigns is out, which is fucking fascinating from an epidemiological standpoint. He’s being replaced by Kurt Angle, which is fascinating and possibly troubling from a medical ethics standpoint. The old math was that you don’t bring The Shield back and have them lose. The new logic still holds if Angle is wrestling the match. If, as I’ve heard suggested, it’s a swerve and it’ll be Jason Jordon actually working the match, it’s possible Miz’s side could prevail. But I’m going to stick with my original prediction of the faces winning.
