With Mike the Ref, Andre C, The Wrestling Mind Brian Hamilton, and “MRB 1.75” Ryan Passmore

 

Intercontinental Title – Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Wade Barrett 

Match Did Not Happen

Mike – Bryan.  Very cheap victory, but wil squeak one more month out before taking time off.

Andre – Barrett.  Bryan just can handle the grind right now.

Brian – Barrett.  Portrayed injury will lead to injury time

Ryan – Bryan.  Clean win, and match of the night.

Andre – Kidsarro.  Dominant victory

Brian – Kidsarro. Decisive win

Ryan – Kidsarro.  Clean Win

 

Kiss my Arse – Shaemus vs Dolph Ziggler

Mike – Ziggler.  However, either Shaemus does not follow through on the stipulation, or a donkey will appear.

Andre – Shaemus.  Needs momentum to get heel character going

Brian – Shaemus.  Need to build him up.

Ryan – Shaemus.  A lot of boots and a lot of boos.


Chicago Street Fight – Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper

Mike – Harper.  Great spots but no wins for Ambrose

Andre – Ambrose.  Going with heart, finally gets first PPV win

Brian – Ambrose.  Match suits him the best

Ryan – Ambrose.  Vicious match that may steal the show

 

United States Title Russian Chain Match – John Cena (c) vs Rusev

Mike – Cena. Can’t see Cena giving up belt, and Rusev can still claim to not be pinned or submitted.

Andre – Cena.  Keep getting over to establish title

Brian – Cena.  See Andre’s Answer

Ryan – Cena.  Lana interferes and accidentally costs Rusev the match.


Divas – Nikki Bella (c) vs Naomi

Mike – Nikki.  Nothing much to see here, other than it will be a dirty match.

Andre – Nikki. Just another divas pointless match (piss break)

Brian – Double DQ/Countout.  Brie or locker room will interfere.

Ryan – Nikki.  Like Heel Naomi but Nikki prevails


Last Man Standing – Big Show vs. Roman Reigns

Mike – Big Show.  Interference by Bray Wyatt costs Reins the victory, setting up that feud.

Andre – Reigns.  Not going to bury him here.

Brian – Reigns.  Hard hitting match, and Reigns will barely get up.

Ryan – Reigns.  Will look very strong

  

WWE World Heavyweight Title Steel Case with RKO not allowed – Seth Rollins (c) vs Randy Orton

Mike – Rollins retains.  Either interference costs Orton the match or Rollins gets DQ’ed for using RKO.
