My Hopes/Predictions for WWE Extreme Rules

WWE Extreme Rules 2015

Kickoff Match

 

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (c) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E)

The problem with this match is that there is absolutely nobody to root for. As a matter of fact, it should be fan favorites The Lucha Dragons (Kalisto & Sin Cara) who are the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship. In a recent #1 Contenders’ Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship on Raw, The Lucha Dragons got screwed when an interfering New Day member Xavier Woods prevented Sin Cara from reentering the ring, which allowed The New Day to get the win by countout and become the #1 contenders. As far as this match goes, I do not have a preference to which team wins or walks out as champions, but I think I am going to root against Cesaro & Kidd. What I am really hoping for is that friction starts to develop between The New Day and it will lead Kofi Kingston to turn face. That is another problem, Kingston is currently a heel and he is not right for that role.

Fatal 4-Way WWE Tag Team Championship Match

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (c) (w/Natalya) def. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) (w/Xavier Woods), The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) (w/Naomi) and Los Matadores (Diego & Fernando) (w/El Torito) to retain their championships

This match turned into all-out chaos. It all started when Cesaro targeted Jey’s injured shoulder at the start of the match. Jey was unable to continue and Jimmy had to go it alone for his team. Since there were no countouts and no disqualifications, the four respective people that were in each team’s corner decided to get involved in the match as well. There was a lot of high flying, a lot of excitement and even though I wanted to see The New Day become the new champions, I thought this was a great match to kickoff WrestleMania 31.
