This Sunday ushers in the latest WWE PPV, Night of Champions. As usual, every Championship will be defended as well as a few other encounters. Let’s have a look at what could happen…
Pre-Show Six Man Tag Team Match.
Neville & The Lucha Dragons Vs. The Cosmic Wasteland.
This is a continuation of the storyline between Stardust and Neville from SummerSlam but sadly, without the Green Arrow’s involvement. Not much time has been given to this story and I’m not quite sure where the decision came from to include the Lucha Dragons and The Ascension in this story. With that being said, the match should be entertaining to a degree and will likely whet your appetite for what’s to come later that night.
Prediction: The Cosmic Wasteland. Seeing as they’re a new team and have a new name.
Dolph Ziggler Vs. Rusev.
This feud has been going on far too long and sadly, with the lack of Lana due to injury, this match is likely going to just keep things simmering until her return. Recently, we had the change of direction with Ziggler giving Summer a gift behind Rusev’s back so maybe something similar will happen in the match which will distract Rusev, costing him the match. Either way, this angle is getting old, and fast.
Prediction: Dolph Ziggler via distraction roll up.
The Wyatt Family Vs. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and a mystery partner.
There has been a lot of speculation that Daniel Bryan might be the mystery partner to assist the former Shield members in this match. As much as I would like that to be true, I just don’t see the logic in it. That doesn’t mean that it won’t happen as logic isn’t always the strong point when it comes to recent WWE storylines. Unfortunately, I can see the mystery partner being Randy Orton. Another possible return is on the Wyatt side as Erick Rowan might prevent the former Shield members from gaining the victory.
Prediction: The Wyatt Family. They need to get a win back after losing at SummerSlam.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match.
The New Day Vs. The Dudley Boyz.
Probably the most exciting thing on WWE TV at the moment, The New Day. They will defend against the returning Dudley Boyz. The Dudley’s are gunning for their 10th WWE Tag Team Championship and while I think they will undoubtedly get that honour, I don’t think it’ll be at this show. I think The New Day have too much momentum to lose the titles at this stage and think that Dudley’s might be held off to regain the championship until later this year. I could see the Dudley’s regaining the Championship at TLC in December and by that point, we may even have the Hardy Boyz back?
