Mr Main Event’s Predictions for Extreme Rules:
WWE Tag Team Championship:
Cesaro and Tyson Kidd (C) vs. A New Day
This match will be on the pre-show and while I believe that Cesaro and Tyson Kidd deserve to be on the main card, there is no competition. If A New Day wins this, I will be most surprised by this than any other match. A New Day is a team that I do not see last the rest of the year, while I see Cesaro and Kidd holding the belts through the summer.
WWE Intercontinental Championship:
Wade Barret vs Daniel Bryan (C)
There are rumors out there saying that Bryan will not compete and that he will be out a month, however, WWE put this graphic up today therefore if the match happens, obviously the internet will have it wrong again, therefore I am predicting Daniel Bryan to win this match.
Chicago Street Fight:
Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper
This match has the potential to steal the show. This could be a modern day Kane vs Mankind. Having a lunatic fringe take on a deranged monster, and put them in a street fight, they are going use everything including the kitchen sink. In the end, Dean Ambrose will come out the victor.
Nikki Bella (C) vs. Naomi
If you have been following my work the past week, you may have noticed that I took a lot of heat for asking if there was money in Naomi. I said the last meaningful program she was in without her husband was with Cameron. Now Naomi has a mean streak and has gained some buzz, Im going out on a limb and picking her. I have seen divas who go into a title match with a lot of momentum, lose and then we don’t see them back in the title picture, however with the Bellas teasing they are leaving the WWE for bigger things, with Naomi gaining momentum and being one who has great in ring work, this could be her night.
Russian Chain Match for the WWE United States Championship:
Rusev vs John Cena (C)
The rubber match between the two promises to be a good one. The Russian Chain match have the same rules as the classic bull rope match. It will be interesting watching Cena drag Rusev around the ring. Cena will find a way to win this match, but what will be interesting is what happens after the match and where these two go.
Kiss My Arse Match
Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus:
We have seen Sheamus and Ziggler face each other for years. However this is the first time we will see a heel Sheamus in over 4 years. For the first time in awhile, Im entertained by him. Im not too crazy about the gimmick, this isn’t the attitude match. After all we know what arse means. But Sheamus returning to the ring, no way he did not get better.
Last Man Standing Match:
Roman Reigns vs. Big Show
The winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns, had a lot of momentum in the ring going into WrestleMania, but then he ran into Brock Lesnar in a town called Suplex City, and even though he survived, it was Seth Rollins getting the ring stealing his moment and becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Now Reigns will face the Big Show in a last man standing match. While he got a lot of boos from the crowd going into Mania, he took a beating from Brock Lesnar and gained the respect of the fans. I believe Reigns will have to take yet another beating in order to maintain the respect. This match will feature a lot of crazy spots, a lot of tables being broken, but in the end it will be Roman Reigns getting up before the count of 10.
Steel Cage Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (Use of the RKO is banned for this match)
Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins (C)
Seth Rollins is the most entertaining heel in the business. Randy Orton is pound for pound the most ideal WWE Superstar in a long time. The two did their best to steal the show at WrestleMania, and now they are in the main event. Rollins, who received the most devastating RKO in history at WrestleMania, banned the move immediately when he was given the opportunity. This is extreme rules, anything goes inside that cage, therefore Im looking for a punt. But in the end, the resilient Seth Rollins will find a way to escape the cage and remain the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
