Smartie Cup Predictions
WWE Summerslam 2015
Featuring Mike the Ref, Andre C, Brian Hamilton and Ryan Passmore
1) Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
Mike – Sheamus. No cash in tonight, so heel needs to look strong
Andre – Not like it really matters because this is match what 1,000,054 for these two in the WWE. I say Orton wins but this match really doesn't matter.
Brian – Sheamus
Ryan – Orton Clean
2) Tag Team Title Match
Prime Time Players (c) vs. New Day vs. Los Matadores vs. Lucha Dragons
Mike – New Day. Should never have lost the belts, and now that Xavier is proving to be a great talker, they’ll give him the belts just so he can brag about it incessantly.
Andre – Here is the pre show match of the night. I'm not to sure with this one but I'll go with The Prime Time Players retaining the belts Brian – Prime Time Players. Ryan – Prime Time Players. New Day still shines in this match
3) Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
NO CONTEST (Double Countout)
Mike – Rusev. Whole lot of leggy shenanigans. This feud is far from over.
Andre – Ziggler. This is just a matter of opinion cause I think Rusev is stale and I'm a Ziggler supporter.
Brian – Ziggler
Ryan – Ziggler. Coming back off an injury he needs the push.
4) Stephen Amell & Neville vs. Stardust & Wade Barrett
Mike – Team Arrow. Stephen Amell is going to look a lot better than people expect.
Andre – I can only go one way on this one. Have to go with "Team Arrow" Amell and Neville.
Brian – Team Arrow
Ryan – Team Arrow. Fun match, and a good example of celebrity participation
5) Intercontinental Title Match
Ryback (c) vs. Big Show vs. Miz
Mike – Miz. Big guys cancel each other out, and the little weasel sneaks in for the title.
Andre – Ryback retains the title. He hasn't had the chance to run with the title yet due to Staph infection so I think he keeps the belt for a little bit.
Brian – RYBACK (Autopick)
Ryan – Miz in a boring match. Maybe kevin sullivan and john tenta will show up and restart the dungeon of doom.
6) Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose
Mike – Bray and Luke, with the help of newly arrived Leo Kruger Andre – Bray & Harper win to continue on the fued.
Brian – Ambrose and Reigns
Ryan – Wyatts. Maybe with some of Bray’s black magic, they start to become strong again.
7) US Title vs. WWE World Heavyweight Title
Choose Split or one man to have both
John Cena vs. Seth Rollins
Mike – Rollins. Owens comes down and interferes on behalf of Rollins. Next night Rollins offers up belt to Owens as a reward, but Cesaro demands match for it, after beating him tonight, and wins it
Andre – Both men leave with their respective titles. Cena is doing a great job rebuilding the US Title and Rollins is doing pretty good as the guy with the main title. Brian – Cena. May be a split, but I believe Cena will do it. Ryan – Split. Doesn't make sense for belts to switch hands
8) Women’s Elimination Match
Team PCB vs. Team Bad vs. Team Bella
Mike – Team PCB. Face team going against two heel teams. Surprise will be when Bellas get knocked out early.
Andre – Team PCB. I think you'll see Charlotte getting a big spot in this match.
Brian – Team PCB. Charlotte makes Nikki tap out for the finish
Ryan – Team PCB. Charlotte is a big factor in this one.
9) Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro
Mike – Cesaro in a tight one. May be match of the night.
Andre – Because he needs a win again after jobbing to John Cena at the last 2 PPVs, I'll go with Kevin Owens.
Brian – Cesaro Ryan – Cesaro. Owens starts to fizzle. Hope I am wrong.
10) Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
Mike – Lesnar.
Sets up a “If I can’t beat you at 32, I’ll retire” storyline
Andre – Undertaker. Sets up the rubber match at Mania 32
Brian – Undertaker finally beats Brock
Ryan – Taker
by DQ. taker works heel. Sting shows up. Sets up sting vs taker at
mania. Taker wins by dq, brock looks strong.
Final Record (W-L-NC)
Brian - 6-3-1
Mike - 5-4-1
Andre - 5-4-1
Ryan - 2-7-1
