No Mercy ends the long drought of Pay Per Views following SummerSlam this weekend. That means it’s time to make some random predictions that will almost certainly lead to me owing Cameron Abbott more Portillo’s Hot Dogs.
Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Jason Jordan
I don’t think Jordan’s ready to hold the belt yet but they might continue this feud out for another PPV or two but I think The Miz retains here.
Prediction: The Miz
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville vs. Enzo Amore
With the amount of heat on Enzo backstage, I can’t see them giving him a belt but having him in the 205 Live/Cruiserweight scene might be putting more eyes on it. But ultimately I think we’ll see Neville retain
Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt
I want Finn Balor to win. I think Finn Balor should win. So I think WWE creative is going to troll me and fall back on their 50/50 booking to give Wyatt the win here, since Balor won at SummerSlam.
Prediction: Bray Wyatt
Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs. Cesaro & Sheamus
Sheamus still has to go film so WWE movie soon so I don’t see him and Cesaro winning the belts back and this feud seems to be gearing up toward Anderson and Gallows facing Rollins and Ambrose next.
Prediction: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose
Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Nia Jax vs. Emma (Fatal 5-Way Match)
I can’t see any reason to add Bayley into this match this late in the game other than to give her the title here as a welcome back from injury. It’s a shame because I’d prefer a powerhouse run by Nia Jax for a bit but it seems like they might give it to Bayley in order to set up Asuka’s eventual push (since she defeated Bayley for the NXT title before her record-setting run).
John Cena vs. Roman Reigns
Reigns will win and continue to be just as bland and bad on the mic as Cena has highlighted. And the fans will boo.
Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman
I want Lesnar to lose. They’ve started selling Strowman merch. I think Braun will win and give Lesnar a vacation until maybe the Royal Rumble?
