Alexa Bliss, Mickie James and Natalya vs. Becky Lynch, Naomi and Nikki Bella
Predictions & Winners: Ever since Alexa Bliss captured the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship, she’s built up a shocking alliance with the returning Mickie James. She’s been forced to make that happen since Becky Lynch has been on her tail lately. As for Nikki Bella, she’s been embroiled in a feud of her own with Natalya. With the addition of the returning Naomi, we’ve finally arrived at this big 6-woman showdown. Miss Bliss has been on the winning end of a lot of her matches lately, but we think her newfound alliance will break down during this meeting. The good gals will prevail and give us one of the more happier outcomes of the evening.
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Bayley (WWE Raw Women’s Championship)
Predictions & Winner: Charlotte is starting to come into her own as the Queen of the Raw Women’s roster. After dealing with Banks, she’s moved on to one of NXT’s other former Horsewomen – Bayley. They’re on a collision course that will unfold during this PPV and it will be contested for the Raw Women’s Championship. Since we’ve already witnessed so many back and forth title changes throughout 2016 for the Raw Women’s Title, we don’t see that trend continuing into the start of 2017. Bayley will fight hard and look to be on the winning end during this title encounter, but Charlotte Flair will steal the win somehow and crap all over Bayley’s childhood dream.
AJ Styles (c) vs. John Cena (WWE Championship)
Predictions & Winner: Both these men put on a series of incredible matches last year. Styles dealt such a severe blow to Cena at SummerSlam 2016 and it caused him to take a hiatus from the squared circle. Now that he’s returned to SmackDown Live, Cena’s made it clear that he’s looking to dethrone the “Champ That Runs the Camp,” AJ Styles. Styles has defended and retained his title so many times in 2016, but his biggest challenge looks to be WWE’s resident Superhero. When these two meet once again at the 2017 Royal Rumble, expect to see another MOTY candidate as Styles and Cena tear each other apart. We all should know how this works, right folks? Cena’s taken so many L’s from Styles and now it’s time for AJ to get his ultimate comeuppance. Cena will finally defeat his current nemesis and head to SmackDown Live as its new “Face That Runs the Place.” Don’t be surprised when AJ throws himself February’s upcoming Elimination Chamber PPV Championship match, though.
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Roman Reigns (No Disqualification Match for the WWE Universal Championship; Chris Jericho Will be Suspended in a Shark Cage Above the Ring)
Predictions & Winner: And now we’re here to speak on the Raw feud that we’re beyond sick and tired of watching. Although we enjoy all three men’s work, we’re just fed up with the repetitive matches between these personalities. Hopefully, this PPV championship bout marks the last time we’ll see Owens, Reigns and Jericho dealing with each other. So here’s the thing – Y2J captured the US Championship by beating Reigns on Raw. Him and Owens hold the top two titles on Raw because of that result. But it’s looking like a future beef between Owens and Jericho over who really owns the US Championship could be set up for WrestleMania 33. Which means we think Reigns is going over here and walking out of this show as the NEW Universal Campion. Reigns will win after some misplaced interference from Y2J, which will backfire and cause Owens to lose. Reigns will take the title home and leave Owens and Y2J to argue over what just went down.
