World Champion John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar
Mascara De Fuego: Brock. I think its obvious that this title change needs to happen, that being said I hope the WWE does not change their minds at the last minute and make Brock’s defeat of the Undertaker at WrestleMania mean nothing by changing the ending to this match. Sometimes we need to be predictable in wrestling. This has to happen, this needs to happen. The WWE needs the WWE Title on someone who isn’t going to wrestle on every show. They need a big fight feel every time that title is on the line. It’s something they might want to continue to do when Brock loses the title at some point. This is a great way to push the Network, forcing people to go there to see this title fought for. Cena has needed to take a back seat from the main event for a long time. I’m sure they would contest that they “need” him but if that is the case then you’re not forcing yourself to invest in the other parts of the roster. Cena is the one guy who never leaves but I think he would benefit from doing so for a bit… maybe that would force the WWE to invest in someone else.
Great Puma: Brock Lesnar. Whether it’s Reigns, Bryan, or Ambrose, the man they have beat that’s going to make the greatest possible Wrestlemania moment next year is Brock Lesnar. Brock just way too much momentum for it to be wasted on another edition of LOLCENAWINS. I look forward to seeing Cena be on the offensive for less than 30 percent of the match. I also expect to see Cena bleed the hard way in a very brutal match.
RAW, brought to you by the WWE Network for… $9.99….
Word came out late Sunday night that Spike TV is opting not to renew TNA’s contract. The news even made it to the main stream as TMZ has even picked up the story. Even more strange are the stories that Vince Russo being involved with TNA still could have a deciding factor for Spike to sever ties with the organization.
So, what now?
At the moment it looks like TNA and Spike are trying to negotiate something out of this news. Possibly in regards to staying with the cable channel or an extension until TNA can find a new home.
IMPACT was still pulling a decent rating and if Spike doesn’t want wrestling anymore, maybe TNA could look at lesser known channels like ION who use to carry the WWE’s Main Event Sh0w.
If TNA does go under for lack of finding a new home, one could only imagine that it would be a matter of time before the WWE would purchase their library for the WWE Network. This could be a good move if for just filling in the void of explaining Sting’s career after WCW folded.
This is a big blow to the wrestling community and we will have more on this situation as it unfolds.
Paige snaps, we get a new trio, Stephanie gets arrested and the main event to SummerSlam is officially SET!
Fatal Four Way for the WWE Title
John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns
Mascara De Fuego: Cena. Its fairly obvious that Hunter’s plan “C” is Brock Lesnar. I still think it’s a great idea to put it on Lesnar and it only makes sense against Cena. He gets vengeance for losing his first match back to the fed which was against Cena many moons ago. Not a bad selling point. The match should be good but not great.
Great Puma: Cena. The cat is outta the bag ain’t it? Promotional poster leaks of Cena vs. Lesnar at Summerslam are all over the interwebz. Is the WWE smart enough to use web leaks to sway their audience in a different direction? I’m thinking not. I expect Reigns to get the most shine despite the inevitable LOLCENAWINS outcome. Looking forward to Brock Lesnar destroying Super Cena in August.
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
Great Puma: Rollins. People love the chase. The WWE loves the chase. If Ambrose wins, this feud dies. Rollins winning by cowardly, heel ways, would push the storyline and just make the crowd adore Dean Ambrose more. I say Ambrose kicks Rollins ass for thirteen to fifteen minutes, and then Rollins wins with a lot of help from his Authority stablemates. And the beat goes on and on and on and on…
Mascara De Fuego: Ambrose. Man, I really hope this is match of the night. Feels right about time to do this match and Ambrose needs a good win after this week’s beat down. I can’t wait to see these two finally working against each other.
