Re: Extreme Rules 2016: Early match predictions
Steel Cage Match
Roman Reigns (c) vs. AJ Styles
I'm expecting some kind of fuckery in the main event of Payback that will lead to a rematch between AJ and Roman. Whatever it is, I think the rematch will take place in a Steel Cage to try and prevent interference from Gallows & Anderson and The Usos. And it will allow AJ to pull off some 'HOLYSHIT/THIS IS AWESOME" spots off the top of the cage.
Last Man Standing Match
Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho
Last Man Standing would be better suited for this match. Ambrose won a LMS match at Royal Rumble earlier this year and Jericho put on a classic LMS match with Triple H at Fully Loaded 2000 and beat Kane later that year in another Last Man Standing.
Street Fight Match
Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
I agree with the other posters on this one.
Elimination Tables Match
Enzo & Cass vs. The Dudley Boyz
Another one I also agree on. The Dudleyz are likely to cost E&C the No. 1 Contenders match at Payback.
Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
This is a good idea from the poster above especially with how Corbin has been destroying guys since his Raw debut. Use this to write off Ziggler from TV for a while.
Extreme Rules Match
The Miz (c) vs. Cesaro
I think Miz will retain the title at Payback by getting himself DQ'd or Countout, giving Cesaro another shot at the belt. Extreme Rules Match will allow Maryse to interfere and help Miz beat Cesaro by Pinfall and retain the belt. As a new power couple in WWE, I can't see Miz losing the belt just yet.
Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks
Charlotte seems to have ran through everybody relevant in the Womens division except for Sasha and Bayley, who I see coming up soon and dethroning Charlotte of the belt.
Tag Team Championships
The New Day (c) vs. The Vaudevillians
The Vaudevillians win the No. 1 Contendership at Payback.
United States Championship
Ryback (c) vs. Apollo Crews
As I predicted in another thread, Ryback wins the US strap from Kalisto at Payback and then drops it to Apollo Crews but it probably won't be in this match. In a rematch cause WWE loves booking rematches.
Don't think those last three matches will have stipulations. Not every match at Extreme Rules does.
