Welcome to another round of WWE Predictions here at Enuffa.com! This month we're trying a three-man predictions panel, as our colleague Landon Wayne joins Dan and myself for some prognostications.
Well folks, the first post-WrestleMania PPV of 2017 looks quite solid on paper, minus one match (it's pretty obvious which one). It's always refreshing when 'Mania season is over and we can get back to focusing on the actual roster. As for this Superstar Shakeup nonsense, I'm holding judgment for a little while to see how everything plays out. But I do hate this new Jinder Mahal push, which reeks of the same out-of-nowhere booking as in 2002 when the Big Show jumped from RAW, where he was a jobber to the stars for months, to Smackdown, where suddenly he was so fearsome Paul Heyman dumped Brock Lesnar to manage him. Most of us either watch or follow both shows, guys. We're not morons.
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. This show should be quite good overall, so let's get to it.
***So far this season I'm 9/12 to Dan's 5/12. Landon's season will start now.***
Pre-Show Match: Enzo & Cass vs. Anderson & Gallows
I don't care much about either of these teams anymore - The Club got a half-assed, brief Title run that did them no favors, and Enzo & Cass's shtick got old months ago. The match should be okay I guess.
Justin's pick: Enzo & Cass finally get a win I guess.
Dan's pick: I guess. I don't care. Both these teams annoy me at this point.
Landon's pick: Bullet Club, because Landon's policy is Ride till you die, and I will die with Gallows and Anderson
WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Neville vs. Austin Aries
These two had a pretty damn good opener at 'Mania and hopefully they'll get a comparable amount of time. Neville has been a great custodian of the division and I'd probably keep the belt on him a while longer, but I dunno if WWE has the patience for that.
Justin's pick: I have a feeling AA takes the belt here
Dan's pick: AA FTW
Landon's pick: There's no one left for Neville to face, so Aries gets it here.
RAW Tag Team Championship: The Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus & Cesaro
I like this pairing - the Hardyz got one of the biggest pops at 'Mania for their surprise return and Title win. However I don't see them as long-term Champions this time around. S&C really should never have dropped the belts when they did. Plus Matt needs a reason to be "Broken."
Justin's pick: Cesaro & Sheamus recapture the gold
Dan's pick: Hardyz keepz the beltz
Landon's pick: We can do to hold off on the broken turn for a little longer.
