LIVE WWE NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS REVIEW AT 7:30PM AT PROWRESBLOG
Hey everyone, it's time for another WWE PPV. This time it is WWE Night of Champions 2013.
I'm not really feeling this card at all. It's a two match show and it's hard to argue otherwise. The other problem is that one of the matches that is being really shilled, is the handicap match, which really shouldn't be much of a match either way.
Let's get to the card:
WWE Tag Team Championship #1 Contender - Tag Team Turmoil
I would have to put the Prime Time Players as the favorite here. They've been getting a push and WWE is into them at the moment. If they don't win though, The Uso's have the next best chance. WWE has been establishing them over the last few months, but if they win, it would just lead to another Shield match. I'm picking The PTP's here. I guess they will beat The Real American's to win. If WWE is smart, The RA's should be in for most of this. WINNERS - The Prime Time Players
WWE Tag Team Championship - The Shield vs The Winners of Tag Team Turmoil
WWE US Championship - Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler
Picking a winner in this one is a little hard. Dolph would theoretically win if he wasn't getting jobbed out and there's no real reason for Ambrose to lose at the moment. To be honest, I don't think Ambrose will lose the title. He could lose the match due to Shield interference, which is highly possible, but I don't think Dolph can win the belt. It wouldn't do anything for either man. WINNER - Dolph Ziggler by DQ
WWE Divas Championship - AJ Lee vs Natalya vs Naomi vs Brie Bella
World Heavyweight Championship - Alberto Del Rio vs Rob Van Dam
RVD really should win here. He's more over since ADR isn't over a lick and he has been pretty good in his comeback. Something is going to have to keep this feud going and an RVD win would do it. Alberto doesn't need the win and neither result does anything for him. WINNER - Rob Van Dam
Elimination Handicap Match - CM Punk vs Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman
The match won't be that great most likely and it's probably going to lack logic. Elimination matches are cool but really neither heel should leave once they lose. Also, if I was Axel, I'd make sure Paul got out ASAP which is real life, wouldn't be that hard. As I mentioned earlier, I'm not really feeling this. I have no feelings towards Paul getting beaten up especially since Meltzer hinted that he may be off TV for a while if Punk does get him.
I'll take the underdog bet here and take the heels for the win. I don't know how it's going to happen, but something will happen. Punk will get his shots in but in the end, he will lose. WINNERS - Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman
WWE Championship - Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan
The match should be good. It's going to get a lot of time and there should be tons and tons of shenanigans going down. Anyone from Triple H to Vince to Cody Rhodes to The Shield to The Big Show or even Stephanie could interfere and they all might even get involved. The heat should be there and both guys have worked well with each other before.
The obvious pick here would be Randy Orton. WWE has basically confirmed that DB is not the guy, so therefore, he will lose and not be protected like he has been for the last few weeks. DB's going to take a whooping here and probably get cheated out near the end when victory is in sight. Someone's going to interfere to cause him to lose and it may even be The Big Show. DB should win here though. He's been taking abuse and now it's time to dish out abuse and win, but it's not going to happen. I'm going with Orton here. WINNER - Randy Orton
Stay tuned for long couple of days for myself with WWE Night of Champions, WWE Total Divas, WWE RAW, ROH TV, Sumo and maybe something from Japan.
