WWE Great Balls of Fire comes to us live from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Sunday night. The Kickoff Show starts at 6PM CT with the main card beginning at 7PM CT. The following predictions are the way I would book the show along with how I think WWE will.
Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship
I’ve really enjoyed this feud. RAW in general is a much more enjoyable experience for this viewer when Paul Heyman is motivated and fully engaged in the feud he and Lesnar are in. Lesnar has to win here, but I hope Joe is made to lose in a way that keeps him strong.
My Winner: Lesnar
WWE Predicted Winner: Lesnar
Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns in an Ambulance Match
I expect WWE to give Reigns the win here, but I’d rather see Strowman continue to get the better of Reigns leading to their blow off match at Summerslam.
My Winner: Strowman
WWE Predicted Winner: Reigns
Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks for the RAW Women’s Championship
I don’t expect a clean finish in this one. I’m a big fan of Alexa and I don’t want to see her run end here. Somehow either Bayley or Nia, perhaps both get involved and figure into the finish. My hunch is Bayley costs Sasha the win due to her interference backfiring.
My Winner: Bliss
WWE Predicted Winner: Bliss
Dean Ambrose vs. the Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
In no way should they put the title back on Ambrose. In fact, they should end this feud and not go back to it for another 2-3 years.
My Winner: Miz
WWE Predicted Winner: Miz
Seth Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt
I’m as big a Bray Wyatt fan as there is, but unfortunately WWE’s booking of him has beaten me down to the point where I just don’t care about him or this feud. The wrestling in this match should be very good, but as far as who wins, it doesn’t make a difference.
My Winner: Wyatt
WWE Predicted Winner: Rollins
Sheamus & Cesaro vs. the Hardyz in an Iron Man Match for the RAW Tag Team Championship
The tag team division on RAW was just hotter when Matt and Jeff held the titles. In addition, there just aren’t enough top babyface acts to feud with Sheamus and Cesaro. Put the belts back on the Hardyz because they should never have dropped them in the first place.
My Winner: the Hardyz
WWE Predicted Winner: Sheamus & Cesaro
Big Cass vs. Enzo Amore
Cass has to win this match. A loss would seriously jeopardize whatever singles run WWE has in store for him. Nobody expects Enzo to win and sometimes going with what’s most obvious isn’t a bad thing.
My Winner: Big Cass
WWE Predicted Winner: Big Cass
Neville vs. Akira Tozawa for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Neville continues to do stellar work as champion. I’m also a fan of Tozawa and I expect him to win the title, just not here. Neville should retain here while also making Tazawa look good. I expect this feud to continue leading to Tozawa finally winning at Summerslam.
My Winner: Neville
WWE Predicted Winner: Neville
Enjoy the show!
