Is it really that long since we last had a WWE PPV? It must be at least two weeks, so here we go with our predictions for CoC 2020:
Hot news 4 hours before event start - rumours of positive CV tests... Cross "unavailable"?
20:26 - Cross out, and Jax et al match also off. No reason given, but guess has to be positive tests for CoVid. Where does that leave everyone else?
Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso
Silas: Reigns, if the match happens
The Baron: Do I really have to spell it out? If it isn't Reigns, then you have to wonder why on Earth a (potentially) immuno-compromised man came back to wrestle in the middle of a coronavirus pandemic, don't you?
OUTCOME: Reigns. 1-1
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton (Ambulance Match)
Silas: McIntyre, to be loyal
The Baron: Sad gimmick, hackneyed, trite and worn out. Can you tell I'm not a fan of this? I'm going to say Orton, because I think they have to do something with him
OUTCOME: McIntyre. 2-1
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. Nikki Cross
The Baron: Bayley. Surprised if Cross gets it, if she does it will only be to drop it again in a couple of weeks in a nothing match
OUTCOME: Match off
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler vs. The Riott Squad
Silas: Riott Squad
The Baron: I would hope the Squad would get it here. Baszler is hot, but Nia Jax is (as has been shown on numerous occasions) just a liability. I'm going to say Squad
OUTCOME: Match off
SmackDown Tag Team Champions Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro vs. Lucha House Party
Silas: Any justice, has to be Nakamura & Cesaro
The Baron: By rights, Nakamura & Cesaro, so I'm going to stick with that. Not sure that Vincent K likes the idea of a Lucha tag team holding the title?
OUTCOME: Nakamura & Cesaro. 3-2
Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn – Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Winner Take All Ladder Match
The Baron: Crazy booking, utter waste of talent putting them all in one match. Styles. All three deserve it, but Styles didn't come to lose
OUTCOME: ZAYN! 3-2
Bobby Lashley vs. Apollo Crews – United States Championship Match
Silas: Who cares? Lashley
The Baron: Personality vacuum Lashley against someone who is just happy to be there. Is this supposed to interest me? I'm hoping Crews - anything is better than Lashley (and the grammatical atrocity that is "the all mighty" :-/ )
OUTCOME: Lashley. 4-2
Asuka vs. Zelina Vega – Raw Women’s Championship Match
The Baron: Hopefully Asuka, but I think Vega has a push... but I'm going to say Asuka
OUTCOME: Asuka 5-3
The Street Profits vs. Andrade & Angel Garza – Raw Tag Team Championship Match
Silas: SP. Getting a push, and Andrade doesn't seem to have WWE support?
The Baron: Yawn. The SP took ages to get going, and this doesn't really set the world on fire. Let's say A&A for this one.
OUTCOME: SP. 6-3
Silas wins, 6-3
