SummerSlam & NXT: Takeover Predictions & Thoughts

August 22, 2015


The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Mascara De Fuego: Brock. I’ve been on the fence about this match since Taker showed up at Battleground and nut shot Brock. The reason I’m not crazy about this was that Brock’s been a face since WrestleMania 31 and Taker has come off as a bitter defeated heel since returning. Now the only way I see this working itself out is that heel(ish) Undertaker loses AGAIN to Brock which hopefully in turn makes Taker look sympathetic while still keeping Brock face. This would then set up the next WrestleMania match where the sympathetic old veteran finally breast the unbeatable beast. You could even make it MORE interesting by having the WWE Title on Brock going into that match but I’m sure they will think it wont need it… but, Taker retiring as champion would be dope.

Great Puma: Brock. Undertaker has been taking the heel role of late, and I think the Tri-State crowd will cheer more for a Brock victory than a Taker one. I hate rumors, but I love the scenario of Sting interfering to set up the overdue Taker-Sting ‘mania match we’ve been waiting years for. Brock just had a successful appearance on ESPN. Taker is an icon but he’s nowhere near as relevant as Brock Lesnar is right now. A Taker win won’t do anything for either man’s career. It derails the momentum that Brock has gained since Wrestlemania and Taker would leave with a win and not be back with the roster until probably around the Royal Rumble. I actually have no idea how this match will play out but I certainly am intrigued.


Title vs. Title

WWE World Champion Seth Rollins vs. United States Champion John Cena

Great Puma: Seth Rollins. Nope. I cannot accept Cena tying Ric Flair’s record. Ain’t gonna happen here. It just can’t happen. I expect this to showcase IndyCena with Rollins looking strong. It will be interesting to see if Cena cashes in his receipt and goes for his own flying knee to Seth Rollins’ nose.

Mascara De Fuego: fucked finish. Neither one of these dudes are walking out with both titles, there is no way. Cena has a good thing with the US Title and Rollins still needs a longer run as WWE Champion. Besides, don’t even get me started with stupid ass Cena coming close to Ric Flair’s record… fuck that shit. Should be a good match, hopefully it will resemble more of what Cena did with Owen’s in regards to match quality.
