WWE Payback 2013 Preview

The inaugural WWE Payback will be taking place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois. There are 7 matches on the card and one pre-show match and all the Championships are on the line. Let's look at the card.

The pre-show match will be between Damien Sandow and Sheamus.  Due to the fact that it's a pre-show match, it will be probably no more than 5 minutes. Whilst I would love Sandow to win, it's more likely that Sheamus will brogue kick his way to victory.
Predicted Winner: Sheamus

The Intercontinental Championship will be on the line in a triple threat match as Curtis Axel and The Miz challenge Wade Barrett. This match could go either way as a lot of people think that Fandango will be the next Champion. However, his concussion makes that an impossibility for now. I think that they will go another direction for now and Curtis Axel will be the new Intercontinental Champion.
Predicted Winner: Curtis Axel

The Divas Championship will be on the line as AJ finally challenges Kaitlyn  in what has the potential to be a very good match. For the first time in ages, the Divas Championship has a story going into it as we finally see the Chickbusters explode. This has slowly brewing since AJ twice slapped Kaitlyn into the following week last year. They have been best friends since NXT season 3 and they are both very capable wrestlers. The question is whether WWE will give them the appropriate amount of time for this match. I think that it's time for AJ to have a run as Divas Champion.
Predicted Winner: AJ

The Tag Team Championships will be defended as the team of Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton challenge The Shield. I'm quite looking forward to this match although I don't think that Bryan and Orton will win here. I believe that The Shield will win and Bryan will continue thinking that he is the weak link.
Predicted Winners: The Shield

The United States Championship are on the line as Kane challenges Dean Ambrose. This could go in an interesting direction if Kane wins and it could reinforce Bryan's belief of him being the weak link. However, I don't think that will happen and I believe that Ambrose will retain here.

CM Punk will take on Chris Jericho in what could be a very good match. Due to the fact that Paul Heyman accepted Jericho's challenge without Punk approving it means it could go in quite a few directions. I think that Punk will have the match and defeat Jericho. Whether it means a face turn for Punk, only time will tell.
Predicted Winner: CM Punk

Dolph Ziggler has recovered from his Jack Swagger-induced concussion to take on Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship. I honestly can't see Del Rio winning this so I'm going for Ziggler to win here.
Predicted Winner: Dolph Ziggler

The main event will be a three stages of hell match for the WWE Championship between Ryback and John Cena. The three stages will be a lumberjack match (er,ok), a tables match and an ambulance match. I have actually enjoyed Ryback as a heel and it will be interesting to see him as WWE Champion. However, WWE will probably make Cena go through his Super Cena phase and defeat Ryback.
Predicted Winner: John Cena

I'm still behind on my PPV reviews so I hope to catch up over the next two weeks. I hope you guys enjoy the show.

WWE Extreme Rules 2013 Review

WWE Extreme Rules took place at the Scottrade Center in St Louis on Sunday May 19th. With 9 matches on the card, it looks like it could be a decent event. Let's take a look.

The Pre-show match is between Cody Rhodes and The Miz. Miz gets a couple of early pin attempts and Rhodes gets the advantage after dropping his neck onto the top rope. Both guys applies some basic submission moves before Miz goes for the figure four. Rhodes gets out of it and goes for the cross rhodes but Miz manages to apply the figure four and Rhodes taps out. It wasn't a bad match but I found it a bit weird that they used a lot of rest holds in a short match.
Winner: The Miz
Predictions: 1 for 1

The first match is between Chris Jericho and Fandango.  Jericho gets the early advantage and he keeps on forcing Fandango out of the ring. Fandango finally gets some momentum when Jericho charges at the turnbuckle and he kicks them down. Fandango then does a springboard legdrop and Jericho slows him down with a back suplex. Jericho does a running bulldog and goes for the Walls of Jericho but Fandango kicks him away. Fandango goes for the top rope legdrop but misses and Jericho does the lionsault for 2. Jericho manages to apply the Walls of Jericho but Fandango gets to the ropes. Fandango goes the top rope legdrop again but Jericho hits the codebreaker while Fandango is flying through the air to get the win. Whilst I loved the ending, I felt that it was a repeat of their Wrestlemania match where Jericho gets in the vast majority of the offence; and when Fandango does get in some moves, they seem to be quite basic.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Predictions: 2 for 2

The next match is for the United States Championship as Dean Ambrose challenges Kofi Kingston. Kofi goes for trouble in paradise but Ambrose holds onto the rope. Kofi gets a little bit of offense in before Ambrose gets the advantage with a thunderous clothesline. Ambrose applies the chickenwing but Kingston manages to get out of it. This gives him the chance to make a comeback and hits the SOS but Ambrose kicks out at 2. Kofi does hit the trouble in paradise when Ambrose is on the edge of the ring and he goes to the floor. Kofi, instead of letting the referee count Ambrose out, rolls him back into the ring and covers but Ambrose reaches the bottom rope. Kofi goes for the trouble in paradise again but he misses and hits the ropes and Ambrose hits a headlock driver to get the win and become the new United States Champion. It was a good match and whilst I'm happy that Ambrose won, I am slightly worried that it could lead to the Shield breaking up. Hopefully, that will not happen for a long time.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Predictions: 3 for 3

Next is a strap match between Sheamus and Mark Henry. Sheamus puts Henry down and hits one turnbuckle but Henry gets up and clotheslines him. Henry then uses the strap to bind Sheamus and hits two turnbuckles before Sheamus gets out of it. Shemaus then manages to hit three turnbuckles by going round the outside of the ring but Henry clotheslines him down to the floor. Henry then picks up Sheamus onto his shoulder and carries them to each turnbuckle and Henry starts to touch them. However, Sheamus does it just after him and Henry notices it when it touches the third turnbuckle and looks to see that turnbuckles that he has done so far are both lit up. Henry then headbutts Sheamus to reset both their counts. Sheamus gets the win when he touches three turnbuckles and Henry blocks his way for the fourth. Henry picks him up but he gets off his shoulder and hits the brogue kick. Sheamus then hits the final turnbuckle. This wasn't a bad match and I hope they have a rematch soon.
Winner: Sheamus
Predictions: 3 for 4

Due to Dolph Ziggler's concussion, Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger faced each other in "I Quit" match to determine the No 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. The match goes to the outside and Swagger hits Del Rio with a belly to belly suplex. The action goes back inside and Swagger beats the crap out of Del Rio with a kendo stick. Del Rio does grab the sric but Swagger clotheslines him. Del Rio eventually makes a comeback, hitting a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and a superkick followed by hitting Swagger's back with a kendo stick ad a backstabber. Later on, Swagger hits 2 gutwrench powerbombs then Del Rio applies the cross armbreaker but it's reversed to the patriot lock. Ricardo Rodriguez is considering throwing in the towel but Del Rio tells him not to. Coulter does so instead and Swagger hits the match. Or so we thought. Referee Rod Zapata comes down and tells match referee Mike Chioda that it's the last decision. Then, Chioda gets all NFL when he looks at the replay on a monitor that came out of fucking nowhere and will probably never be seen again. He sees that Coulter threw in the towel and decides to restart the match. Swagger immediately focuses on the injured ankle. However, Del Rio applies the cross armbreaker and, despite Swagger's best efforts to get out of it, he says "I Quit" and Del Rio is your new number 1 contender. I wasn't really a fan of this match due to two things: The referee constantly asking the wrestlers if they want to quit; and the ending with the replay. That has set a dangerous precedent and it has ruined my suspension of disbelief that you need to have as a wrestling fan. This is a really dumb ending and hopefully, they won't do it again.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Predictions: 4 for 5

The Tag Team Championships are on the line in a tornado tag team match as Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins challenge Team Hell No. Hell No get the advantage early on before Reigns and Rollins start to wear down their opponents. Reigns tries to hit Byran with a top rope powerbomb but it's reversed. Bryan applies the LeBell Yes No Lock on Reigns while Kane is preventing Rollins from interfering. Rollins eventually elbows Bryan and Kane hits him with a chokeslam then Reigns hits Kane with a spear. Kane tries to hit Reigns with another chokeslam but Reigns hits him with a flying knee from the top rope then a spear from Reigns. Reigns covers Kane but the pin is stopped by Bryan. The end comes when Reigns puts Bryan onto his shoulders and Rollins jumps off the tope rope and knees him in the face to get the win and make them the new Tag Team Champions. Afterwards, US Champion Dean Ambrose comes down to celebrate. I really enjoyed this match and it turned out to be a good day for The Shield.
Winners: Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins
Predictions: 5 for 6

Randy Orton took on Big Show in an Extreme Rules match. Show gets the early advantage before Orton starts hitting a kendo stick on him. Show grabs it and breaks it and does the same to another stick later on. Show continues to dominant until he misses a shoulder block and this gives Orton the chance to make a brief comeback. Show takes down Orton with a spinebuster then puts a ladder on top of 2 chairs. Show puts Orton on top of the ladder and tries to splash but he misses and crashes through the ladder. Orton makes a comeback and hits a top rope DDT then the RKO for a 2 count. Orton uses a chair on Show's back then gets hit with a spear. Orton does another RKO, this time driving Show's head onto a chair then almost punts his head off to get the pinfall. I thought that was a good match which was quite brutal for the PG era.
Winner: Randy Orton
Predictions: 6 for 7

The penultimate match is for the WWE Championship as Ryback challenges John Cena in a last man standing match. Cena hits a running facebuster but Ryback hits a clothesline almost immediately then a powerslam for a count of 6. He then hits a gorilla press slam followed by a powerbomb for a count of 8. Cena brings in a table, which turned out to be a bad idea as a few minutes later, Ryback sends him flying through it with a fallaway slam. Cena keeps trying to make a comeback but Ryback manages to stop it with a move such as a spear. Cena hits a powerbomb for a count of 8 and later on, Ryback hits a meat hook clothesline for a count of 8. Cena then applies the STF in order to make Ryback pass out. However, Ryback gets up at the count of 9. Cena brings in another table and sends Ryback through it with an AA for a count of 9. Ryback gets another count of 9 with a shell shock then tries to injure Cena's ankle with a steel chair. However, Cena counters and sends Ryback through the barricade with a spear. The match goes into the crowd and Ryback hits Cena with a ice hockey board but when Cena gets up after a 9 count, he apllies a sleeper for a count of 9. Cena then elbow drops Ryback through a table for a 9 count. The action goes to the titantron area as Cena attacks him with a fire extinguisher. Ryback recovers, picks up Cena and they both go crashing through the lights under the titantron. Both men are down and the match is declared a draw. The match was good until the ending. I don't really mind the match ending in a draw but this is for the WWE Championship and you don't even see the referee make the count. You see them go through, the referee start to run to the back, a replay of what happened then other referees and paramedics tending to the wrestlers. I normally enjoy last man standing matches but the last one they had ended with Del Rio taping up Show's feet to help him win. If the WWE continue in that vein, I may start to hate them instead.
Winner: Draw so no contest
Predictions: 6 for 8

The main event is a steel cage match between Brock Lesnar and Triple H. Triple H wanted the match to start quickly as he attacks Lesnar from behind during his entrance, punches Paul Heyman and throws Lesnar into the cage. Triple H continues to be dominant, throwing Lesnar into the cage a few times then hitting a AA spinebuster. He goes for the pedigree but Lesnar stops it and flips him onto the cage. Lesnar starts to throw Triple H round like a rag doll and hits a throwaway German suplex. Lesnar hurts his knee when he tries to knee Triple H and he misses driving into the cage. Lesnar aggravates it when he hits a running powerslam. Triple H takes adavantage and focuses on the knee and he goes for the pedigree. However, Lesnar reverses it by going for the kimura and Triple H punches the knee to get out of it. Lesnar tries to leave the cage through the door and is stopped by a chop block and Triple H tries to go through the door. However, Heyman pushes referee Charles Robinson out of the way and slams the door onto Triple H's head. Lesnar then hits the F-5 for a  2 count. Heyman gives Lesnar a chair and attacks Triple H with it. Later on, Triple H uses the chair on Lesnar, especially on the injured knee. Lesnar manages to apply the kimura but Triple H slams Lesnar into the turnbuckle and applies the figure four. Lesnar then reserves the pressure and Triple H has to release it. Lesnar attempts to climb the cage but Triple H stops that with a steel chair to the injured knee. Lesnar falls down to the ring and Triple H grabs a sledgehammer that was hidden in the top of the ring but Lesnar stops him from using it. Triple H then applies the sharpshooter and Heyman goes into the ring to attack him but he gets hit with a pedigree instead. Triple H then hits the pedigree to Lesnar for a 2 count. Lesnar hits Triple H with a sledgehammer and hits the F-5 to get the win. I enjoyed this match and I wonder who Lesnar will feud with next.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
Predictions: 7 for 9

I enjoyed most of Extreme Rules. The matches were entertaining and good. It's a shame that the matches involving the World Championships were ruined by extremely stupid endings. Hopefully, they won't do anything like that at the next PPV.

WWE Wrestlemania XXIX Review (finally!)

The Granddaddy of Them All, Wrestlemania XXIX took place on Sunday April 6th  at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The last two Wrestlemanias have been ok so how will this one fare? Let's take a look.

The Pre-Show match featured Wade Barrett defending the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz. In a relatively short match, it goes back and forth as Wade tries for the Wasteland then Miz tries for the Skull Crushing Finale. Wade hits the Boss Man Slam for a 2 count then he goes for the Bullhammer. However, Miz ducks and puts Wade down and applies the Figure 4. Wade goes for the ropes then hits the Wasteland for a 2 count. Miz, while on the floor, kicks Wade in the knee to take him down and applies the Figure 4 again. This time, Wade taps out and Miz becomes Intercontinental Champion...for about 24 hours when Wade gets it back (spoiler alert!) It wasn't a bad match to begin the event.
Winner: The Miz
Predictions: 0 for 1

Before we get into the actual Wrestlemania show, the match between Tons of Funk with the Funkadactyls and Rhodes Scholars with The Bella Twins was pulled from the card without any warning or announcement. Later, it was announced that it was for time constraints, which I found weird as they had the first 4 matches and a mini concert within a hour and an half. Anyway, they did have their match the next night on RAW. I didn't see it but I do know that Tons of Funk with the Funkadactyls won in a brief match. Great, I'm now 0 for 2 in my predictions so it's not going well.

Sheamus, Randy Orton and The Big Show vs The Shield

Ryback vs Mark Henry

The Tag Team Championships are on the line as Team Hell No are challenged by Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler and Bryan start the show and Ziggler almost loses the match straight away when he kisses AJ Lee and Bryan kicks him in the head, in a repeat of what happened to Bryan last year. Bryan is all over Ziggler but he manages to tag in Langston. Kane is tagged in and tries to chokeslam him but Langston powers out of it and takes down Kane. Ziggler and Langston wear down Kane although he does get some offence in during this time. Ziggler hits the Fameasser and covers Kane but Bryan breaks it up. Ziggler then hits the ZigZag for a 2 count. AJ distracts the referee so that Ziggler can use the Money in the Bank briefcase on Kane. However, Kane dodges it and hits the big boot then a chokeslam. Kane then tags in Bryan who hits a flying headbutt to get the win. I enjoyed the match although I thought it was a bit short.. Both teams were good and I was impressed with Langston, who had his first WWE match here. As for Ziggler, he got over his loss pretty quickly as he finally cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to defeat Alberto Del Rio and become the new World Heavyweight Champion ( :) :) ad infintum)
Winners: Team Hell No
Predictions: 1 for 5

It looks like Lilian Garcia showed Justin Roberts how to get his name right as Fandango finally makes his debut, in an awesome entrance, against Chris Jericho. Jericho is dominant to start with before he hits Fandango with the codebreaker but he rolls out of the ring. Jericho tries to kick Fandango but Jericho counters it by kicking him in the head. This gives the opportunity for Fandango to get in some offence for something like 30 seconds before Jericho makes his comeback. Fandango throws Jericho into the ringpostt then hits a top rope legdrop to get a 2 count. Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho but Fandango powers out of it then clothesline him. Fandango then tries the top rope legdrop but Jericho pulls him off the top turnbuckle. Jericho goes for the Lionsault but completes misses it so he goes for the Walls of Jericho. However, Fandango manages to counter it into a small package to get the win. The match wasn't as good as I thought it could be as Fandango doesn't get much offence in and when he did, it was quite basic. It doesn't help that the ending was botched when Jericho misses the Lionsault. However, at least they improvised quickly.
Winner: Fandango
Predictions: 2 for 6

After a concert with P Diddy,  we get the World Heavyweight Championship as Alberto Del Rio is challenged by Jack Swagger.  After a few minutes, Swagger gets the advantage thanks to a distraction by Zeb Coulter. Swagger hits a short clothesline for a 2 count. Del Rio manages a pinning combination for 2 but Swagger kicks out then hits a big boot. Eventually Del Rio makes a comeback after booting Swagger who was charging into him. Del Rio goes for the cross armbreaker but it was countered into a suplex then Swagger applies the patriot lock. Swagger later hits a gutwrench powerbomb for a 2 count. Swagger once again applies the patriot lock but when Swagger attempts to go to the mat and apply further pressure to the ankle, Del Rio reverses it into the armbreaker. Swagger gets out of it and applies thepatriot lock again. Del Rio hits an enziguri and pins Swagger but Coulter puts his foot on the ropes. The end comes Del Rio finally applies the cross armbreaker to get the win. This was quite fun match and I would say that I'd love to see Del Rio continue as Champion but he loses it to Ziggler the next night so...yeah.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Predictions: 3 for 7

Now a match that has the potential to be the match not only of the night, but of the year as The Undertaker goes for 21-0 in his streak against CM Punk, who had the band Living Color play during his entrance. As for the Undertaker's entrance, it was awesome as he rises and the are hands from the grave reaching up towards him. During this time, Punk is mocking Undertaker by messing around with the urn that he stole early on in the feud. Punk gets some offence in early but Undertaker stops that and throws Punk round like a rag doll outside the ring. The action goes back into the ring and tries the old school rope walk but Punk grabs the arm and throws him off. This gives Punk the chance to the old school move himself which was brilliant. Punk continues the assault on Undertaker with a swinging neckbreaker. Undertaker makes a brief comeback with a snap suplex. Punk tries the old school again but Undertaker pulls Punk down onto the top rope and he falls to the outside. Undertaker tries the suicide dive but Paul Heyman gets in the way and this gives Punk the chance to go back on the offensive with a high running knee then the Macho Man elbow drop for 2. Punk tries the GTS but Undertaker gets out of it and hits a chokeslam for 2. Undertaker hits the snake eyes then goes for the big boot but Punk hits a high heel kick instead for 2. The action goes back to the outside and Undertaker tries to put Punk through the Spanish announce table with the last ride but Punk gets out of it and kicks him onto the table. Punk then does the Macho Man elbow drop which doesn't break the table. Punk rolls back in and Undertaker gets in just before the 10 count by referee Mike Chioda. Under taker then goes the Hell's gate but Punk counters into a pin for 2. Punk then applies the anaconda vice but Undertaker powers out of it and goes for the chokeslam. Punk gets out of it and hits the GTS. However, Undertaker bounces off the ropes and hits the tombstone piledriver for a 2 count. Undertaker goes for the chokeslam and Punk manages to get out of it, accidentally knocking the referee in the process. Undertaker goes for the last ride but Heyman throws the urn to Punk who hits him on the back of the head. Punk then does the Undertaker pin for 2. The end comes after Punk and Undertaker keep on countering their finishing move into their own. Undertaker eventually prevails and hits the Tombstone for the win. Undertaker then reclaims the urn and gives his tribute to the late Paul Bearer as the titantron displays that he is now 21-0. This was a really good match and all of them played their role brilliantly. I loved Paul Heyman's contribution as well as he was mocking the Undertaker and giving encouragement to Punk. Definitely the match of the night.
Winner: Undertaker
Predictions: 4 for 8

The penultimate match is between Triple H and Brock Lesnar in a no holds barred match and if Triple H loses, he must retire. They start punching each other and the action goes to the outside very early on and this gives Triple H the chance to get the advantage. Brock tries to use a chair and Triple H stops him but whe he tires to grab it, Paul Heyman takes it instead. Brock manages to get the advantage after hitting a overhead belly to belly suplex on the outside. Brock then sends Triple H through the Spanish announce table with a suplex. The action goes back inside and Lesnar continues his dominance with various suplexes, while Heyman is mocking Triple H. Triple H tries to punch his way into a comeback but |Lesnar slightshots him ito the turnbuckle, sending him to the outside. The action goes back inside and Lesnar hits a German suplex pin for 2. After Lesnar elbows Shawn Michaels off the apron,, Triple H hits an AA spinebuster then goes for the pedigree. Lesnar reverses into an attmept at a F-5 and Shawn tries to stop it but Lesnar hits him with the F-5 instead. Triple H hits the pedigree but only gets a 2 count. Triple H gets the sledgehammer but Lesnar grabs him and hits the F-5 for a 2 count. Lesnar starts to hit Triple H with the steel steps and then starts to mock him. Triple H slaps Lesnar and maes a brief comeback but Lesnar tries to apply the kimura and Triple H gets out of it by lifting him and slamming him to the mat. Triple H sends Lesnar into the ring post then hits a low blow. He then starts attacking Lesnar's arm with a steel chair then applies the kimura lock. Heyman tries to break the hold with a steel chair but Michaels stops him with the sweet chin music. Lesnar eventually gets out of the kimura lock by slamming Triple H onto the steel steps. Triple H applies the kimura 2 more times and Lesnar gets out of it both times. Triple H hits Lesnar in the head with the sledgehammer and then hits the pedigree onto the steel steps to get the win. I really enjoyed the match and with Lesnar doing another year, it will be interesting to see what WWE do with him.
Winner: Triple H
Predictions: 5 for 9

After we see the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013, we get Once Twice in a Lifetime as John Cena challenges The Rock for the WWE Championship. The match starts quite slowly as they feel each other out. It goes back and forth for a while before Rock applies a sleeper and Cena manages to suplex his way out of it. Cena tries to apply the STF but Rock stops that from happening. Rock then applies the sharpshooter and Cena manages to roll through and get out of it. Cena goes for the five knuckle shuffle but Rock moves out of the way and hits a DDT. Cena then applies a crossface (not a STF, Michael Cole) but Rock rolls it into a pin attempt for 2. The match goes back and forth and Rock goes the people's elbow but Cena stops that from happening and applies the STF. Rock breaks the grip and hits the rock bottom for 2. Cena then hits the AA for 2. Cena then goes for a top rope legdrop but misses. Rock hits the spinebuster then the people's elbow for a 2 count. They start trading punches before Cena goes for the AA. Rock gets out of it and hits another rock bottom for 2. Rock goes for another people's elbow but Cena jumps up and hits the AA for 2. They start trading punches again and Cena hits the rock bottom for 2. Cena then goes for the people's elbow like last year, which didn't end for him so fuck knows why he is doing it again; Rock jumps up but Cena holds onto the ropes to stop Rock hitting him with a move and he goes forthe AA. However, Rock gets off Cena's shoulders and hits the rock bottom for 2. Both guys try for their finishing moves but Rock hits a DDT then stalks Cena looking to do the rock bottom. Cena gets up from the mat and Rock goes for the rock bottom but Cena reverses it into the AA for the win and Cena is the new WWE Champion. Afterwards, Rock and Cena shake hands and hug. I enjoyed the match and I thought it was better than their match at Wrestlemania XXVIIII. Both guys preformed well, especially The Rock who suffered a serious abdominal injury during the match.
Winner: John Cena
Predictions: 6 for 10

I actually enjoyed this years event. It is better than the last two years as it didn't have anything that really pissed off. The Fandango/Jericho was a disappointment otherwise I thought the other matches were good. Here's hoping that the WWE continue in that direction.

TNA Slammiversary XI Preview

Slammiversary is taking place this evening at the Agganis Arena in Boston. Last year's event was possibly the best one that TNA had done for the last few years. So. how will this one fare? Let's look at the card.

Jay Bradley will take on Sam Shaw for the right to have the last spot in the 2013 Bound for Glory Series. I honestly don't know who these people are, so I'm taking a pot shot and going for Sam Shaw to win.
Prediction: Sam Shaw

The X-Divsion Championship will be a Ultimate X match with Kenny King defending the title against Suicide and Chris Sabin. I'm liking King as Champion so far and the X-Division have been pretty good over the last few months. I think that Kenny King will retain here.
Prediction: Kenny King

AJ Styles will take on Kurt Angle in a match that has the potential to be the match of the night. It's interesting which way TNA will take this. I think that they're going the route with Sting in 1997. I'm going for AJ to win here and further the mystery as to what his true intentions are.
Prediction: AJ Styles

Devon will be defending the Television Championship against Joseph Park (brother of Chris? You know, Abyss?) This could be an interesting contest and I can see Abyss making a cameo appearance and helping his brother to win the title. Therefore, Joseph Park to win here.
Prediction: Joseph Park

Former Knockouts referee Taryn Tarrell will face Gail Kim in a Last Knockout Standing match. This is the first time that I will see women compete in a last man standing match and I generally love those kinds of matches. It's a tough one tp call as I can see both of them winning but I'm going for Gail to be victorious here.
Prediction: Gail Kim

The team of Magnus, Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy are facing 3 members of Aces and Eights: DOC, Wes Brisco and Garrett "Future of the Business" Bischoff. This could be a good match, even though it has Garrett in it. I think that Aces and Eights will be victorious here.
Prediction: Aces and Eights

The Tag Team Championship will be defended in a 4-way elimination match between Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez, Bad Influence, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode, and the new team of James Storm and Gunner. I'm really looking forward to this match as it involves four of my favourite people in TNA at the minute. This is a tough one to call as I really want either Bad Influence or Aries and Roode to win. I don't think that will happen though so I'm going for Storm and Gunner to be the new Tag Team Champions.
Prediction: James Storm and Gunner

The main event is Bully Ray defending the TNA World Championship against Sting. If Sting loses, he cannot challenge for the Championship ever again. Bully has been quite decent as Champion so far and I think that he will win. However, I think my shenangians sense will be tingling wildly during this match.
Prediction: Bully Ray

Due to the TV deal that TNA have with the UK, it won't get shown until Wednesday night. The review should be within the next fortnight. However, due to the fact that I published my Wrestlemania review two months after it happened, I wouldn't hold my breath.
