Ah, brand-specific PPV's. SLightly longer episodes of the weekly shows. Should be a couple decent matches, though.
WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) vs. Jinder Mahal
SHOULD: I hate Randy Orton so much that yes, I think Jinder Mahal should beat him, even though Jinder Mahal really shouldn't beat him.
WILL: No fucking way Jinder Mahal wins this.
United States Championship: Kevin Owens (c) vs. AJ Styles
SHOULD/WILL: KEvin Owens needs the title and the WWE needs him to have the title. I expect the feud to continue at least until Summerslam, so shenanigans should ensue to protect Styles.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler
SHOULD/WILL: Of course Nakamura wins his debut.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Breezango
SHOULD/WILL: This is a tough one, but Breezango aren't qute over enough yet. If you give them the titles, it'll be American ALpha all over again. Let the Usos cheat, let them win, keep the program going while you actually rebrand Breezango as the Fashion Police and give them a new entrance theme that isn't the horrible mashup of their two old themes. Something fans will pop for.
6-Woman Tag: Naomi, Charlotte Flair, & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella, & Tamina (with James Ellsworth)
SHOULD: Charlotte murders everybody.
WILL: The faces will win because the heels stood tall on Smackdown. They may use this match to kick off Charlotte vs. Naomi at Summerslam. Or they may not.
Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin
SHOULD: Sami Zayn should fucking beat fucking Baron Corbin to get a fucking big win against a fucking big opponent on a fucking big show for a fucking change.
WILL: Zayn fights valiantly with a lot of heart and loses.
Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan
SHOULD: Match gets cancelled.
WILL: I'm gonna flip a coin and say Luke Harper because who gives a shit?
Kickoff Match: Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English
SHOULD: I'm not sure why they're having a third-time rerun of two of Tye Dillinger's debut establishment squashes on a pay per view kickoff show, but they are, so Dillinger will win again.
WILL: I'm not sure why they're having a third-time rerun of two of Tye Dillinger's debut establishment squashes on a pay per view kickoff show, but they are, so they must be planning an every-third-week undercard Smackdown feud with Engligh that will kill Dillinger's momentum. English wins.
