I think Gulak is winning as well

They should put it on the main show instead of Corbin- Balor

That's if they really want more people watching 205 Live. Which I don't

Here's my predictions:

I'm not too sure of most of these.  Which is a good thing 

Preshow:

Gulak over Alexander - new champ

B team over the revival 

Rusev/Lana over Almas/vega.  No clue what happens with English, but I assume he will be involved

Main show:

Ziggler over Rollins. Ambrose turns heel

Styles over Samoa Joe

Bludgeon brothers over New Day. The Bar should have been in new days spot

Rousey over Alexa Bliss.  New champ

Nakamura over Hardy due to Orton's interference 

Miz over Daniel Bryan.  I think they will feud until wrestlemania so the heel should win the first match

Owens over Strowman. By DQ. He wins the briefcase since all he has to do is win. Doesn't have to be by pin or submission

Balor over Corbin. But IDGAf.  This should be on the preshow

Reigns over Lesnar for the belt. Owens cashes in successfully and is the new champ


When it was Becky vs Carmella, I was going with Becky
Now it's a triple threat = Carmella retains 









When

Having not watched one minute of WWE main roster TV since... the first hour or so of Money in the Bank, take my predictions for what they're worth:

Alexander over Gulak.

Revival over B Team.

Almas/Vega over Rusev/Lana.

Ziggler over Rollins.

Styles/Joe has a non-finish that extends the feud.

Bludgeon Bros. over New Day.

Rousey over Bliss.

Nakamura over Hardy.

Miz over Bryan.

Owens over Strowman.

Balor over Corbin.

Carmella retains Smackdown Women's belt. 

Reigns over Lesnar, no cash-in.

The only ones I am absolutely sure about are:

Nakamura
Rousey

So that means 11 I feel could go either way.  And that's a good thing

Wound up 6-7 with my picks

I had the first five on the main show wrong. The last five on the main show right

In hindsight why I had Owens over strowman I don't know.

Ziggler vs Rollins was match of the night
Bryan vs Miz was a close second

Smackdown women's triple threat was very good

Styles vs Joe labored in spots but overall was good

New day vs bludgeon brothers I hated the finish. But the match was very good

Gulak vs Alexander on the preshow was good as well

Reigns vs Lesnar  was better than I thought it would be 

The mixed tag = meh

Revival vs b team = meh

Nakamura vs Hardy = Jeff is hurting.  

Demon vs Corbin was one of 

Three squashes.  Rousey vs bliss was understandable. Poor KO

I had company over so I didn't give the show my full attention, but my first reaction snowflakes are...

Rollins/Ziggler: ****
New Day/Bludgeon: **1/2
Owens/Strowman: *1/2 (SQUASH)
Charlotte/Becky/Carmella: **3/4 
Styles/Joe: ***1/4
Miz/Bryan: ***
Balor/Corbon: * (SQUASH!)
Nakamura/Hardy: **1/4
Bliss/Rousey: *1/2 (SQUASH!)
Lesnar/Reigns: *1/4

Thankfully, having 3 squash matches means the show ended at a respectable time, right around 11:10.

Miz/Bryan and the women's title triple threat I think you're too low. By a half star at least on each

I was struck by how dull Miz vs. Bryan was and how dispassionate the crowd was towards it. 

The women's match was borderline ***, which is pretty good for a Carmella match.

Official Ratings:


Mixed Tag: *
Cruiserweight Title: ***
B-Team vs. Revival: *1/2

Rollins/Ziggler: ***1/4 (same old from Dolph)
New Day/BB: **3/4 (hated the finish, especially knowing Rowan injured)
Strowman/Owens: NR (too short to rate)
Women's 3-Way: ** (still ended up being Carmella's best match. No excuse for rest-holds in a 3-way where they do 1-on-1 the entire match)
Styles/Joe: **** (I liked the finish)
Miz/Bryan: ***1/2 (I loved it, thought Miz did a great job working up to bryan's level)
Balor/Corbin: NR (too short to rate)
Hardy/Shinsuke: ** (basic TV)
Rousey/Bliss: **1/2 (fun)
Roman/Brock: *** (wisely booked)
