WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 predictions

Just off the top. Why isn't the WWE champion defending his title on this PPV?!?! I don't want to go on a rant about that....for now. I can't say that I'm looking that forward to this PPV. Sure it's HiaC, but it's matches that we've all seen before. How many times have we seen Randy Orton vs. John Cena?
A lot. Hell that's how we ended 2013 and how we started 2014.  The PPV could be better than I'm thinking, I hope so. It's a little sad that the match I'm looking forward to the most is Cesaro vs. Ziggler. Anyway here are my predictions.

1) Paige def AJ
2) Rusev def Big Show
3) Star/Goldust def The Usos
4) Cesaro def Ziggler
5) Cena def Orton
6) Ambrose def Seth Rollins
7) Sheamus def Miz

WWE SummerSlam 2014 predictions

The summer is almost over...unfortunately. But at least there is SummerSlam...somehow, that doesn't make me feel better. Not because of the card of the PPV tonight. But the possible outcome of the main event. Of course I am talking about Lesnar vs. Cena. If Brock wins, will he be around to defend the title? Probably not. We probably wouldn't see him again until Survivor Series or the Royal Rumble. That's 3-5 months without a WWE title defense. That would suck and WWE would suffer for that.  Hopefully that won't be the case.  But let's move on to the predictions.

1) RVD def. Cesaro
2) Stephanie def Brie (with outside interference from another diva possibly Beth Phoenix)
3) Roman Reigns def Randy Orton
4) Seth Rollins def Dean Ambrose
5) Bray Wyatt def Jericho
6) Miz def Dolph Ziggler
7) AJ def Paige
8) Jack Swagger def Rusev
9) John Cena def Brock Lesnar

The Rise and Fall of TNA....???

If you're reading this then you may have heard that Spike TV has severed ties with TNA wrestling. Which means that Impact wrestling will no longer be on TV later this year.  This unfortunately  could be the final nail in the coffin of TNA wrestling. But, not all hope is lost. I only say that because it is very possible that TNA could get another TV contract deal.  I don't know what TV channel would want to pick up TNA. MTV or MTV2. But Spike, MTV, and MTV2 are all owned by Viacom. So TNA may have a harder time getting another TV deal than I originally thought.
Why did I title this article "The rise and fall of TNA"? Well this situation reminds me of what happened to the original ECW. For those who don't know, ECW was on a network called TNN. TNN canceled ECW and shortly there after ECW folded. TNN is now known as Spike TV. Yea....hopefully history doesn't repeat itself.

Sting Vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31...?

It has been rumored for awhile that Sting would take on the Undertaker at a WM at some point in time. Now I'm not sure if this was ever based on any kind of fact or not. It seems that it was a dream match that people wanted to see. Now with the announcement of Sting being in WWE 2K15, it seems that dream match may come true. I just saw it mentioned on facebook yesterday. But I gotta be honest. I don't really want that to happen, if it was 2002...maybe. But it is not.
I'm not sure why Sting would want to have a match with Undertaker in the first place. Maybe he wants his WM moment? Maybe he wants one more match so he can go out on top...? I don't know. But let's think about this. By the time WM 31 gets here. Both men will be in their 50s. I wouldn't expect much from either wrestler. Can they still go? Sure. Will it be the best match in WM history? I doubt it. And there wouldn't be anything on the line. The streak is over(ugh), there is no title defense, and the build up would be short because Taker doesn't come around until a month before WM.
It just reminds me of other matches like Hogan vs. Warrior II or Lesnar vs. Goldberg. They sound good on paper, but they couldn't live up to the hype.

Terri's MITB Predictions 2014

Well, well, well, it's me! Long time, no post! My MITB Predictions are posted below. This is hard to call. I've heard information about BNB being injured and not being able to compete so I don't know how that will sway things in that match. The championship match ought to be good because so many of the people don't seem "ready" to be champ, at least by the standards that we have seen WWE do in the past. Should make for a good PPV.

As normal who I want to win and who I predict will win are typically different:
MITB Championship Match
I want-Roman Reigns
Prediction-Randy Orton

MITB Contract Match
I want-Kofi Kingston
Prediction-Bad News Barrett was my prediction but since the injury I'll say Dolph Ziggler

Layla v Summer Ray
I want-Layla
Prediction-Summer Ray

Big E v Rusev
I want-Big E

Rhodes Brothers v Rybaxel
I want-Rhodes Brothers
Prediction-Rhodes Brothers

Naomi v Paige
I want-NAOMI!!!! but I think Cameron will interfere and break up the Funkadactals

WWE Money in the bank 2014 predictions

This may be one of the hardest PPVs to predict. I really have no idea who is going to win either MITB matches. I'm not sure WWE will take a chance, or they will go their regular guys i.e. John Cena or Randy Orton. So I'm going to take a few shots in the dark and hope that I'm right.

1) Rusev def. Big E.
2) Stardust/Golddust def. Rybaxel
3) Summer Ray def. Layla
4) Paige def. Naomi
5) MITB winner Seth Rollins
6) New Champion: John Cena

ROH Best in the World 2014

I don't know how long it's been since I've blogged about ROH.  Unfortunately it's not on in the state that I live, but with PPV all things are possible. And this was ROH first ever live PPV on TV. How did it stack up? Extremely well. ROH delievers something that the other two companies do not. What is that? Innovation. I don't mean innovation as far as storylines. I mean innovation inside the ring.  If you've been watching wrestling for decades like myself. You want to see something different, something new, something fresh. This PPV didn't waste your time with filler or a lot of talking. There was a short interview with a new talent that they signed, but that was it.
I guess I haven't talked about the matches, well if you hadn't already figured it out. I enjoyed all the matches. Some were better than others, but as far as picking a favorite match. I'm not sure I could pick just one. Maybe the first one, but then again the main event was very good, and so was Steen vs. Sailas Young. So I can't pick my favorite match of the night. You would have to see the PPV to judge for yourself.
My favorite moment of the night was when Cedric Alexander was back body dropped into the edge of the ring.  Wow, just f*!!
The only complaint I have would be the weird camera angles. It seems like they focused a little too close to the wrestlers at times. I think that got better as the show went on, but it was still a little distracting.
My grade for the PPV A- and I can't wait for the next ROH PPV.
