Bella was scheduled to captain the Smackdown women's team at Survivor Series, but she was forced to miss the match when she was attacked by an unknown assailant prior to the beginning of the bout. It was great to see Angle back in the ring, with Shield gear on no less. These matches always promise big bumps and crazy spots. After all, what fun would sports be if no one ever talked about them? Ambrose fought back into the match and blasted Styles with Dirty Deeds, only for the champion to recover in time to save his title. The action really kicks into gear one hour later at 8 p. It is astounding that Becky Lynch and Banks are completely out of the title picture on their respective brands at this point. Our prediction: Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann win For the Cruiserweight Championship Enzo Amore has waged war against the cruiserweight division, and while he beat Neville for the title, he quickly lost it to Kalisto.
After two Angle Slams to Sheamus and Cesaro on the outside, Angle and the Raw Tag Team Champions eventually took out The Miz with the patented Shield triple powerbomb with Angle pinning Miz for the win. The odds are stacked against the good guys, and because of that, I'm giving the win to The Shield. I could see Kalisto keeping the title for another couple weeks, but it makes more sense for Amore to take it back and be a two-time champion who now has the ability to brag even more about his accomplishments. That it was the conclusion of a rivalry rather than just another chapter for the sake of filling a pay-per-view card with a gimmick match helped significantly. This went from being a potential laughing stock to a possible show-stealer in a snap. That's not the only big match happening at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
A shocking betrayal by Ellsworth cost Ambrose the match and aided Styles to victory. Balor will still be dressing as The Demon, for some reason. The performers would exceed every last one of them. The six Superstars involved delivered death-defying spots, risking their well-being for the entertainment of the fans. Miz just pisses everyone off. She did so on Raw this week with a brutal backstage attack on Banks.
Alicia wasted too much time at this point and Sasha locked in a Banks Statement for the win. Cesaro and Sheamus, of course, had been battling with Ambrose and Rollins over the Raw tag team titles while Braun Strowman has spent the better part of 2017 fighting Roman Reigns. With Reigns sidelined, that is an even cleaner finish. Ask yourself this question: Where the heck has Nia Jax been the past few weeks? Find and install the app. Featuring intense tables and chairs bumps early in the match, the match built with each high spot until Styles delivered a springboard 450 splash on to Ambrose and through a table and seemingly had the match one. Rollins and Ambrose then hit a Suicide Dive to Miz and the Bar. And to make matters worse for Strowman, he was thrown in the back of a garbage truck before being swallowed up in the back.
The opinions expressed are those of the writer. Edge took his own big bump, enduring an Attitude Adjustment from a ladder, through a table. Since then, the two women have been at war, with Carmella eliminating Bella from the Smackdown Women's Title match at Backlash, and Bella winning a singles match at No Mercy. How did we get here? Neither does the idea of this forced tag team match. Most people assumed Asuka would win in dominating fashion, but the match was presented as an actual match with Emma getting plenty of offense in before The Empress Of Tomorrow made Emma tap out for the win. At one point, Hardy had Punk sprawled out on a table and climbed to the top of a 20-foot ladder.
After being slammed through a table earlier in the match by Strowman, Angle made a roaring return to the match after being taken into the back and his return was all his team needed. Pick: Amore wins the title Women's Championship -- Alexa Bliss c vs. Alicia broke free from an attempted Banks Statement and took the fight out to ringside. Pick: Banks wins Adam Silverstein: I kind of want to go the other way here with Foxy figuring out a way to pick up an unexpected victory, but ultimately I see no way how that would benefit Banks in the least. Secondary prediction: It will be match of the night. This one will feature Drew Gulak doing his power point presentation bit and a Sasha Banks vs. And then suddenly, two of the main stars on the card -- Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt -- were pulled after being diagnosed with viral infections, changing everything.
I did not expect Angle to factor into this feud, and it makes me wonder whether the plan was to add him to the eventual Survivor Series five-on-five match, perhaps with his storyline son in Jason Jordan. The match was nothing fans had not seen before, but the intensity of the rivalry behind it helped propel it past other matches of similar quality. A good idea might be to escalate Angle into a feud with The Miz, which has been teased in recent months while Miz was working opposite Jason Jordan. I'm expecting a nice, clean win for Bliss as James rides off into the sunset following a match that overdelivers. The two superstars had great chemistry together leading up to this battle and put forth a solid match from start to finish before Bliss picked up the crafty win to retain her championship. Here's to hoping Raw does the same thing. Pick: Bliss retains the title Asuka vs.
Upon graduation, I spent more than three years as a columnist for a well-known national sports Web site. The author is a Forbes contributor. Alicia Fox Kickoff Show Brian Campbell: This kickoff show match brings more anticipation with it than the storyline truthfully deserves. But the feud with Alexander, who still has main event potential from an in-ring perspective but not on the microphone, simply hasn't resonated. Our prediction: Mickie James wins The first of two 205 Live matches--yes, two matches--has Rich Swann and Cedric Alexander taking on the team of Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick.
