The 9

  1.  Miz TV with Finn Balor

Russ:  Well, I feel that Bray will somehow be involved, maybe just a little bit to further his feud with one of these guys.  Or maybe the WWE wants to have Miz vs. Finn now.  Either way it is a damned waste of talent!  Finn should be wrestling at this PPV not being interviewed.  Same goes for The Miz.  This is a travesty of justice!  

Kent:  I just listed this as I assume something will come out of this.  Plans for Bray vs Finn appear to be scrapped and now Miz has to get this no talent hack with a cool entrance over.

  1.  Enzo and Cass vs Gallows and Anderson

Russ:  I think this will be an entertaining match, but I’m kind of sick of these guys feuding over nothing.  

Winner:  G & A

Kent:  Gallows and Anderson should win.  Enzo and Cass should turn heel.  They should feud with Heath and Rhyno.

  1.  WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville vs. Austin Aries

Russ:  I missed 205 this week and haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.  Still I think Neville needs to hold onto the belt to make it and him on another level.  Austin is great, but he doesn’t need the title right now.  

Winner: Neville, some kind of cheat, maybe interference with the help of TJ Perkins

Kent:  I haven’t watched 205 in a few weeks, I know, I know.  I still think that Neville is best served as champ so that when he does lose to someone like Tozowa, it is a bigger thing.  I’ll go Neville.

  1.  Raw Women’s Champion Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss

Russ:  I’m torn on this one.  On the one hand Bayley should keep the belt and try to make something out of her title reign before she becomes a complete lost cause.  The other hand I really like Alexa and she should have the belt.  

Winner:  Bayley, but I won’t be disappointed if Alexa wins.  

Kent:  Bayley’s time in the sun is over.  It’s always better to have a heel champ with chasing face.  Still, are they ever turning Sasha heel or what?  Also, I want Emma vs Bayley. I’ll go with Bliss.

  1.  Raw Tag Team Champions The Hardly Boys vs. Sheamus & Cesaro

Russ:  I think The Hardly’s are going to retain here.  At least one more PPV anyway.  After that all bets are off because somebody is about to go broken!  I agree with Kent that something may happen with Sheasaro, but I won’t take any credit for the thought of it.  

Winners: The Hardly Boys

Kent:  Sheasaro are going to have something of interest happen tonight.  I have been saying it all week. I think they turn heel but don’t win the belts.  Just keeping it warm for the Revival.  Hardly’s with the win followed by heel turn for Sheasaro.

  1.  United States Champion Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho

Russ:  I can’t see this turning out any other way.  KO is winning or at least retaining the belt.  Still this has been so telegraphed for the past 3 weeks that it seems like WWE might try to swerve us here.  

Winner:  Jericho, but still US Champ KO

Kent:  This seems to be the worst kept secret in WWE.  KO is winning this.  Look at his push.  He’s the most valuable heel on SD.  Jericho is going back with his band very soon.  This is all common sense shit.   But if Jericho wins, he goes to SD.  Hmmmm, nah KO wins.

  1.  Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe

Russ:  Well, I want my boy to win, but Joe needs the win way more than Rollins does.  I look for this to be the match the night.  

Winner:  Joe, come on WWE make it right.  

Kent:  If Joe doesn’t win, I will not ask a single RAW question on this week’s Wrestling 9 Deuce.  Russ and Keri will be stuck asking them.  I’m super cereal.  My pick, Seth Rollins because WWE hates me and Joe.

  1.  WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt — House of Horrors Match

    Russ:  I can’t wait to laugh at how horrible this match is going to be.  I just wish I was watching with someone else to share in the laughter.

Winner: Bray because it is non-title and Randy will find out what a house of horrors match is.  

Kent:  Nobody cares.  Since Bray needs the push more and it is non title and Bray had a one month title run, you would think that he would win.  You would think that.  Maybe Dean interferes because Dean isn’t even on the fucking card and he’s intercontinental champion.  What the fuck? The IC belt is the RAW belt, but the SD US title is on the PPV?  What the fuck? I’ll go Randy.

  1.  Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman

Russ:  There is no stipulation to this match.  So either they are already going to have Braun fall to Roman or the match never gets off the ground and a DQ happens so we can have a stipulation match at their next PPV.  

Winner: Braun from Roman DQ

Kent:  Roman doesn’t job.  Braun does.  Roman is the guy


Bonus Deuce

  1. What match are you least looking forward to?

Russ:  This isn’t a terrible card, but I guess if I had to choose it would be Enzo and Cass vs. G & A.  I’m just not feeling these guys in fighting each other anymore.  

Kent:  Honestly, Braun vs Roman.  It doesn’t feel like a big match to me.

  1.  Which match gives you the biggest raging clue?

Russ:  Rollins vs. Joe, as if that was a shock to anyone.  Rollins gives me that clue feeling just being on my screen.  These two should put on a hell of a match.

Kent:  Bray vs Randy.  Watching car accidents can be fun.
