Hey we are at the second PPV of the Year, WWE’s Fast Lane. Fast Lane as you know by now has taken the place of Elimination Chamber which overall we think will be a good idea. Elimination Chamber has always seemed out of place and logically I think this PPV will fit more with the “Road to Wrestlemania” theme. Hopefully its debut will not be a disappointment and go over a bit better witht he fans than The Royal Rumble did. Let’s take a moment and look at our predictions for WWE’s newest PPV…

WWE World Heavywight Championship No. 1 Contenders Match: Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns

Robbie’s Pick: Daniel Bryan – I truly and honestly want to believe WWE has realized that the fans simply just do not want Roman Reigns as their top guy at this time. Daniel is apparently the money maker on the roster right now. Hopefully WWE likes money.

Shane’s Pick: Roman Reigns – I just see this match existing to shut up the fans who don’t like Reigns, but only for a moment because Reigns is the guy right now and there’s no way he’s not going to Mania.

Derick’s Pick: Roman Reigns – Roman Reigns wins this match but somehow someway Daniel Bryan will be in the Main Event of Wrestlemania.

United States Championship match: Rusev vs John Cena

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – I know right!? You’re probably shocked but I see this as a good thing. Cena going after the secondary titles will be overall good for multiple reasons. It can help give some more credibility to them, it will keep Cena away from Ric’s 16 time record, allow the kids to have their winning hero and honestly I just don’t care about Rusev at all. Like Shane has said on multiple occasions “This isn’t 1983 anymore.” That being said I wouldn’t be surprised if this story leads into Wrestlemania with Hogan in Cena’s corner… AMERICA!

Shane’s Pick: John Cena via shenanigans – They really couldn’t wait until Mania?  That’s the worst part of WWE’s booking right now…they build up to a match by giving you the same match over and over again.  Cena wins but doesn’t get the belt, setting up the same match at Mania.

Derick’s Pick: Rusev – I don’t even know enough about about this big Russian bastard but I’m sticking to my guns. I hate Cena and said I’m not picking him so there!

Intercontinental Championship Match: Bad New Barrett vs Dean Ambrose

Robbie’s Pick: Dean Ambrose – Dean lost enough of his matches during the Bray Wyatt feud. Time for him to be like his former Shield brother and “look strong” Giving him the IC strap is the thing he needs at this time. 

Shane’s Pick: Wade Barrett – As much as I want Ambrose to win this, I just figure Barrett retains.

Derick’s Pick:  Dean Ambrose – I like them both so this was a literally a coin toss decision.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos vs Cesaro and Tyson Kidd

Robbie’s Pick: Cesaro and Tyson Kidd – It’s long overdue for Cesaro to be wearing some gold again in WWE. I’m really digging this team and Cesaro knows a thing or two about being a tag team wrestler. If they are not going to push him as a single competitor let him do what he does best! Maybe Tyson will get the recognition he deserves as well.

Shane’s Pick: The Usos – Giving Kidd & Cesaro makes too much sense, so I figure we’ll go the other way.  Plus, we’ll get to see how much heat Cesaro got for his Twitter being hacked and it saying that he wishes Vince would die already.  Yeah, I know it wasn’t HIM, but still…

Derick’s Pick – Cesaro and Tyson Kidd – You know why? I hate The Usos…. USO DUMB!!!!! STUPID!!!! STUPID!!!!

Dolph Ziggler, Ryback & Erick Rowan vs The Authority

Robbie’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan – Seems like this match was randomly thrown together and Seth may be in a little bit of hot water for his little “Social Media incident”

Shane’s Pick: Team Babyfaces – Because logic.

Derick’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan – Big Show is trying to tie Rey Myeterio’s knee injuries with Face/Heel Turns. Go get ’em Big guy!

Goldust vs Stardust

Robbie’s Pick: Stardust – Maybe Goldust will drop the paint and just be Dustin after this match blows over. Leaving Cody in the paint and the “Crazy one” of the family.

Shane’s Pick: Stardust – Again, why do this before Mania?  Ugh!  Cody as Stardust is killing it right now, so I like him sticking around a little longer.

Derick’s Pick: Goldust – Why you even asking me that? You know where my allegiance lie. I’d follow that guy to the gates of Hell and carry him back! LOVE THAT GUY!

WWE Diva’s Championship Match: Nikki Bella vs Paige

Robbie’s Pick: Paige – Despite the on again off again Bella feud the past year I still think we are getting a Nikki vs Brie match at Wrestlemania.

Shane’s Pick: Nikki Bella – I’m taking Robbie’s logic, and applying the fact that the Nikki VS Brie match will be for the title, so Nikki retains.  Gotta get the story line for Season 19 of Total Divas worked in there somehow!

Derick’s Pick:  Paige – Not picking Nikki anymore either….stupid Cena!

WWE’s newest June PPV is here. WWE’s Payback. I’m not sure why WWE changes their June PPV theme seemingly year after year but this is their new attempt and the card is actually decent. So lets see what our thoughts are for this month’s PPV.

WWE Championship 3 Stages of Hell Match: John Cena vs Ryback

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – Still boring as usual. I mean business… No I was right the first time.

Shane’s Pick: John Cena

Derick’s Pick: John Cena – What can I say? Ryback is not John Cena’s Kryponite and that’s a shame…a damn shame.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio 

Robbie’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler – His concussion was a setback and they kept the title on him. Hopefully they have something big planned for Dolph.

Shane’s Pick: olph Ziggler

Derick’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler – I agree with Rob. I want Dolph to do with The World Heavyweight Championship what CM Punk did with The WWE Championship. Give this man a long run and restore some credibility to this title. It is THE Championship, not a mid card title so use it right. Ric Flair held this belt for God’s sake!!!

Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk

Robbie’s Pick: Chris Jericho – This is what I have been waiting for weeks. The return of “The Second City Saint” but for Y2J to be his return opponent is awesome! As far as the Payback Theme this is the only match on the card that fits the setting. As much as I would like Punk to win I really see this being the turning point of the Heyman/Punk team. I look for Heyman to screw Punk which will lead to Punk vs Lesnar at Summerslam.

Shane’s Pick: CM Punk

Derick’s Pick: Chris Jericho  – Punk should pull a no show. It would absolutely piss everyone off and maintain his status as the ultimate bad guy in the company.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan

Robbie’s Pick: The Shield – Bryan has been on fire and I would love for Orton to go Heel in this match and turn on Daniel. A red hot Bryan vs an evil Orton throughout the Summer would be something I would really enjoy. Both guys doing what they love and playing up their natural talents would be amazing to see.

Shane’s Pick: The Shield

Derick’s Pick: The Shield – These guys are keeping WWE afloat at the moment. No need for them to lose their titles just yet.

Intercontinental Championhip Match: Wade Barrett vs. The Miz vs. Curtis Axel

Robbie’s Pick: Curtis Axel – In a perfect world Axel would be IC Champion and Punk would be recapturing his WWE Championship during this PPV. Later that night it would be revealed Punk was the leader of The Shield all along and the “Paul Heyman Guys” would be running the WWE. However that is in a perfect world and we are doing predictions for WWE…

Shane’s Pick: Curtis Axel

Derick’s Pick: Curtis Axel – Michael who!?!?! Yeah time for this guy to be who he was meant to be and hold the title that his father once did.

United States Champion Dean Ambrose vs. Kane

Robbie’s Pick: Dean Ambrose – Yeah, that title isnt going anywhere.

Shane’s Pick: Dean Ambrose

Derick’s Pick: Dean Ambrose – Again, The Shield…WWE…Afloat….

Divas Championship Match: Kaitlyn vs. AJ Lee

Robbie’s Pick: AJ Lee- Dolph and AJ. WWE’s newest power couple.

Shane’s Pick: AJ Lee

Derick’s Pick: Kaitlyn – Seriously guys… WHO THE F*** IS KAITLYN!?!? WHEN DID SHE BECOME CHAMPION!? Wow this division is easily forgettable.

Pre-Show Match: Sheamus vs Damien Sandow

Robbie’s Pick: Sheamus – This guy is still insanely over as a huge face. A win here early in the show will set the mood for the show.

Shane’s Pick: Sheamus

Derick’s Pick: Sheamus – Sheamus is on the pre-show? Guess he got the “boot” from the main card….see what I did there?

Totally slipped up on us so here are our quick predictions for this months PPV known as Extreme Rules….. Why is Sheamus on the poster again?

WWE Championship Last Man Standing Match: John Cena vs Ryback

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – BOOOOOOOORING! Man alive… 1 month into his undeserved 11th WWE Championship reign we are back to the same old stuff. In the process Cena has destroyed all of Ryback’s momentum and after the PPV Ryback will slip back into midcard Heel Hell. Lost in the shuffle due to the broken system of the Super-Cena face character. Anyone remember when the WWE Championsip was relevant? If only there was a Best in The World and a phenomenal young talent trained by Shawn Michaels and William Regal who could actually Wrestle for the World WRESTLING Entertainment Championship.

Shane’s Pick: John Cena:  This is happening way too early, in my opinion.  This should have went down at Summerslam.  I just have a feeling that we’re going to get this match and then Ryback is going to be feuding with Kofi for the US title in two months.

Derick’s Pick: John Cena – YAY! EVERYONE LOOK! JOHN CENA IS BACK IN THE MAIN TITLE PICTURE….SAID NO ONE EVER!!!!! Seriously didn’t we already see Cena in the main title picture in 2005…and 2006…and 2007…and 2008…and 2009…and 2010…and 2011…and 2012…and OH MY GOD WILL SOME MAKE A WISH KID ASK THIS F***ER TO TURN HEEL ALREADY!

Steel Cage Match: Triple H vs Brock Lesnar

Robbie’s Pick: Brock Lesnar – This has been my favorite part of RAW second only to The Shield. It’s time for Brock to get a solid Win and to avenge his loss from last years Extreme Rules.

Shane’s Pick: Triple H – I’m hoping for a really good match with this one, but I just don’t see Brock pulling it off this time.

Derick’s Pick: Brock Lesnar – Seriously still conflicted over this entire feud. These are two of my favorite guys who just absolutely love to beat the hell out of anyone they are in the ring with and I love it. Seeing them tear others apart always puts a smile on my face but seeing them go one on one with each other is nothing short of a War. Just please Hunter this time….leave the fog machine at home.

“I QUIT” No 1 Contenders Match for The World Heavyweight Championship Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger

Robbie’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – Time for Alberto Del Rio to get his rematch for the World Title and for Swagger to go play time out and put the doobie down for 30 days.

Shane’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – I’m shocked Swagger’s still around and hasn’t been sent home for a while, but maybe this is it.  Or, who knows.

Derick’s Pick: ALLLLLBBBBEEEERRRRRTTTTTTOOOOOO DEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLL RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  – Later pothead! Kick Out at 2 is a drug free zone. Hey while your coming down off that high hopefully you will finally realize you’re not Kurt Angle. Also Alan Parrish is looking for your buddy, they have a game to finish….. I gotta calm down….

United States Championship Match: Kofi Kingston vs. Dean Ambrose

Robbie’s Pick: Dean Ambrose –I swear this whole scenerio is turning into a modern day Fout Horseman or Evolution and I love it. The Shield holding 3 of the 4 titles on RAW? Now to add a chick to the group & Punk to return for his WWE Championship and finally be revealed as the leader all along and I’m happy!

Shane’s Pick: Dean Ambrose –Ambrose has become my favorite part of the Shield and I can’t wait to see how this match plays out.

Derick’s Pick: Dean Ambrose – Yeah….what Rob said. Total Wrestling Nerdgasm!

WWE Tag Team Championship Tornado Tag Match: Team Hell No vs. The Shield’s Reigns and Rollins

Robbie’s Pick: Reigns and Rollins – Time to get the new group rolling and Daniel Bryan back in the title picture where he belongs.

Shane’s Pick: Reigns and Rollins – Yeah, lets get these guys all blinged out. Yeah, I just said it.  Bling is cool…when it’s on The Shield!

Derick’s Pick: Reigns and Rollins – Hold on… still having that Nerdgasm….

Strap Match: Sheamus vs Mark Henry

Robbie’s Pick: Mark Henry – Because that’s what he does!

Shane’s Pick: Sheamus – I want it to go the other way, but, I see Sheamus on this one.

Derick’s Pick: Mark Henry – Somebody’s Gonna Get Their Ass Kicked! Me and Mark Henry’s music plus being stuck in traffic doesn’t mix well. I’m looking at you Chinese couple on Interstate 81…..*shifty eyes*

Randy Orton vs The Big Show

Robbie’s Pick: Randy Orton- Remember when this guy was the no 2 face in the company? Yeah time for him to be the no 2 Heel again in the company.

Shane’s Pick: Randy Orton – Time for them to do something with him.  Yeah, I know that he’s 2 strikes down and the 3rd one is termination, so maybe they’re just hesitant to be put in a position where their champ has to get fired, but for goodness sake, just do something with Randy.

Derick’s Pick: Randy Orton – This guy needs to get back in the game with the quickness. I’m not even mad at him…. I’m just disappointed.

Chris Jericho vs Fandango

Robbie’s Pick: Chris Jericho – This guys has come back time and time again for 32 years now to put people over. Time to give him a solid win to reasure us Y2J is the man and reward him for his time and dedication to the WWE fanbase.

Shane’s Pick: Fandango – I don’t think Jericho’s done in the “putting Fandango over” station of this return yet.  Hoping for a good match.

Derick’s Pick: Chris Jericho – Yeah again what Rob said…. I swear sometimes this dude is literally right in my head sharing my thoughts and knows exactly what I want to say….sketchy!

So here we are at Wrestlemania 29! This year marks the 2nd Wrestlemania during the life of Kick Out at 2! and this has been a pretty good year for our site as well as other wrestling enthusiast that we have met both in life and on the web. This year we added to the group we watch PPV’s with. We’ve introduced new friends to wrestling and took joy in seeing others returning to the world they hadn’t been a part of in a long time. With a year of anticipation leading up to Wrestlemania let’s take a look at our predictions for this year’s “Showcase of The Immortals”

WWE Championship Match: The Rock vs John Cena

Robbie’s Pick: The Rock – As soon as John Cena’s shoulders were pinned cleanly to the mat at the end of the “Once in a Lifetime” match last year we all knew that the tag line used to promote this match was simply bogus. Last year I picked The Rock from the moment their match was made official and I never wavered in my prediction that The Rock would defeat the new name and face of the company. As happy as I was to see Rocky win last year I wasn’t in a hurry to see him fight Cena again, even though we all knew it would happen. This year I have the same feeling that he will walk out victorious, this time with the WWE Championship in hand. Cena will probably take it next month at Extreme Rules. I make this call based on the fact I do not want The Rock to be a transitional champion. If The Rock drops the title at Wrestlemania he will have been Champion for 70 Days. If he loses it at Extreme Rules it will have been a 112 Championship reign. For me it makes more sense for The Rock to retain for the sake of the WWE Championship itself and the credibility that CM Punk restored to the title.

Shane’s Pick: John Cena – “Twice in a Lifetime” but back to the “Same old crap” on April 8th.  

Derick’s Pick: John Cena – It hurt to write that, it really did. The “Twice in a Lifetime” match is one that we here at KO@2 have seen since over a year ago. It has been inevitable since last year. The proverbial “torch” gets passed and that’s it. We get promos of happy Cena again. And the crowd goes…mild.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger

Robbie’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – I see Alberto fighting a long hard fight but ultimately coming out victorious with a clean pin or submission. Hopefully after this match Dolph decides he will cash in and walk out of Wrestlemania the new World Heavyweight Champion.

Shane’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – And here’s where Swagger’s drug bust gets the better of him and sends him into derailment.  I’m certain this match is the only reason he wasn’t sent home for a while immediately after it happened.  I figure a hard fought victory leaving ADR hurting…so that we can finally get Dolph’s cash in!

Derick’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – Swagger’s character isn’t working. His catchphrase isn’t working. His promos sound flat. The only thing great about him is Dutch Mantel. Sadly, I don’t care about this match at all. I’d rather watch JBL throw trash cans at Hornswoggle again. PLEASE DOLPH, I BEG YOU. NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME TO DO THIS!!!!

The Undertaker vs CM Punk

Robbie’s Pick: The Undertaker – Every fiber of my being wants me to pick CM Punk but due to tradition I have to go with The Undertaker. However, for the first time in the history of The Undertaker’s legendary streak this is the first year I could logically see it coming to an end. If you read my previous article you will understand the reason behind why I say this. If you haven’t read it yet, check it out.

Shane’s Pick: The Undertaker – Apparently I’m the odd one out in our Ko@2 bunch because I never doubted this one for a second…and I carry the CM Punk banner higher than anyone on this staff, I would argue.  You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, and you don’t beat Taker at Mania.

Derick’s Pick: The Undertaker – Up until the death of Paul Bearer, I was 100% behind Punk breaking the streak. And it would have been awesome. But I just don’t see it. Not now anyways. I think ‘Taker gets the emotional win and goes back to wherever he goes for 9 months. I’m 51% Deadman and 49% CM Punk as of this moment so I gotta go ‘Taker.

Triple H w/ Shawn Michaels vs. Brock Lesnar – No Holds Barred Match 

Robbie’s Pick: Triple H –Even though I could kinda see him calling it quits in the same manner as his mentor Ric Flair and his best friend Shawn Michaels I don’t see it happening just yet. Honestly Hunter will probably hanging around for a few more years, especially with their lack of full time top superstars. Initially once I heard that there was going to be a stipulation added to this match I hoped it would have been something along the lines of, if Triple H lost he would hand over all COO duties to Paul Heyman and return to being a full time competitor. That would an been an awesome scenario to see play out but this year I think Triple H adds a win to his Wrestlemania record.

Shane’s Pick: Triple H – They haven’t been exactly using Brock wisely for the last year, so why start now?  Plus, I truly feel that when HHH calls it quits, he’ll mean it, and that’s not something that happens with 2 weeks buildup.

Derick’s Pick: Triple H – When this match started coming together, the teenager in me was doing backflips. Triple H pulls out a win in what I guarantee will be a brutal match. “He’s not just trying to hurt the man – he’s out to end his career!” will be said. And it’ll be so literal!!!

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Team Hell No vs. Dolph Ziggler & Big E Langston

Robbie’s Pick: Kane & Daniel Bryan – This match is here to throw us off. I really think they want us to try to forget about Dolph by throwing him in the mix of all these Superstars until we see him again later that night. I see Dolph and Big E. losing here only for Dolph to steal the spotlight later on.

Shane’s Pick: Dolph Zigger & Big E Langston – I’m calling double gold for Ziggler coming out of Wrestlemania!

Derick’s Pick: Kane & Daniel Bryan – This is the last time I pick Kane/Bryan. I want Daniel Bryan on his own, badly. They had a good run. Time for Kane to set people on fire alone, and Bryan to make people tap. And I want a feud between Ziggler and Bryan. And pancakes. And beer. But not simultaneously. AND, I don’t see Black Lesnar lasting. He looks too much like Carlton Banks.

Randy Orton, Sheamus & Big Show vs. The Shield

Robbie’s Pick: The Shield – I look for Randy Orton and Big Show do a double turn. Show goes face and looks to have things won only to be betrayed by taking an RKO from Orton. I don’t see Orton aligning himself with The Shield afterwards but than again as an Orton fan it wouldn’t be the worst thing that could happen to him.

Shane’s Pick: The Super Friends – Yeah, this is going to happen no matter how much I fight and scream and kick.

Derick’s Pick: The Shield – Why is Orton, Sheamus, and Show a team? Hell, I dunno. Why do little leprechauns live under the ring? Why are there always weapons under there too?!? And smoke billows out all the time. Don’t they see this stuff under the ring when it’s taken down? I guess they don’t care. Doesn’t seem safe. Oh, this match? Eh.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Wade Barrett vs The Miz

Robbie’s Pick: The Miz – A few months back The Miz was in a decent feud with Antonio Cesaro for the United Championship. I originally envisioned this leading into Wrestlemania with Ric Flair in the corner The Miz. If Flair’s health and recent passing of his son were not an issue I could have seen him being there to support The Miz allowing for a “feel good” Wrestlemania moment. The fact this feud with Barrett was quickly thrown together then bumped to the pre-show almost guarantees no Flair involvement in this match.

Shane’s Pick: Miz – This is happening?  Was there build up?  Did I skip past it?  Where’s Cesaro?!

Derick’s Pick: Wade Barrett – Ugh… I like watching this storyline. BUT, I like watching paint dry. This match feels more thrown together than the Divas battle royal @ WM 25. And that was crap. Much like this is crap. 100 lbs. of crap. 5 feet of crap. Hang on, my phone is ringing. It’s crap, says he knows this match. Oh, You remember when Cody Rhodes made the IC title relevant again? Well, this ruined it.

Ryback vs Mark Henry

Robbie’s Pick: Ryback – Simply because I want to see if Ryback can do “Shell Shock” to Mark Henry. I like both these guys but I see the 15 Year veteran Mark Henry giving Ryback a massive victory at Mania. I’d like to see this continue a while longer or like Derick said lead to an ultimate team up opportunity down the road.

Shane’s Pick: Ryback – This is the match I’m most waiting to read Holzerman’s writeup about on Monday.  Hoss fight!

Derick’s Pick: Ryback – I wrote in my article as to why Ryback wins earlier this week. I don’t want to type it again. Plus I’m too busy thinking of them as a tag team. “Somebody’s gonna feed more!! Meat on the table getting they ass kicked!!”

Chris Jericho vs. Fandango

Robbie’s Pick: Fandango – Every since JBL had talked about him on his show I had been intrigued, wondering how this character would manifest. I admit I rolled my eyes once I saw this playing out the way it was but once Jericho was involved my mindset changed. Honestly, I see this match surprising us all. Jericho wouldn’t agree to work this match if he didn’t see something in the new talent. With JBL and Y2J backing him up the pressure is on Fandango to impress us.

Shane’s Pick: Fandango – Putting over the new guy is what Jericho does now…and he’ll do amazing at it.  Plus, one does not simply debut at Wrestlemania and look like a chump.

Derick’s Pick: Fandango –  If they don’t do something with this crap quick, I’m over it. I already don’t like it. Stupid! Either make Fandango work, or send him back. Poor Jericho. He’s been used better.

Tons of Funk & The Funkadactyls vs. Team Rhodes Scholars & The Bella Twins

Robbie’s Pick: Team Rhodes Scholars & The Bella Twins – The Bella Twins are back and I don’t see them losing in their return. It appears as though Rhodes Scholars are likely to remain as a Tag Team and hopefully Tag Team Gold is in their near future.

Shane’s Pick: Team Heels – Yeah, I’m not writing that out.  Yes, I just realized that I could have copy and pasted from someone else’s post.  Shut up!

Derick’s Pick: Tons of Funk & The Funkadactyls –  And I don’t need a damn explanation!!! I love Brodus Clay. He follows me on twitter. And you people can hate all day. Jerks.

 

For the 3rd time since the creation of this site all of Kick Out at 2! Will be watching the PPV together. Joined with our new friends “The Gotham Gang” these PPV get togethers have turned into nothing short of hilarity,  moments of uncontrolled rage, massive freak outs, shout fest and just all around good times. Not to mention more wings then should legally be allowed under one roof. Anyway here is our picks for the worst placed PPV of the Year, The Elimination Chamber.

WWE Championship Match: The Rock vs CM Punk

Robbie’s Pick: CM Punk – This is without a doubt the most conflicted I have ever been during a feud for The WWE Championship.  The Rock hasn’t changed and I love that about him. However everything I love about him worked during his feud with John Cena but just isn’t working the same here with Punk. I’m sure they had big plans for Punk when he dropped the title but with The Undertaker 50/50 for Mania I see Punk getting his title back here tonight to set up Brock vs Rock. If not hopefully Punk will be added at Mania in a Triple Threat.

Shane’s Pick: – The Rock – You people have no idea how much it pains me to say that.  However, Rocky in the title picture at Mania makes money, so it’s happening.  I can only hope that Punk is also involved in the title match there as well.

Derick’s Pick: The Rock – Wrestlemania 29 “Twice in a Lifetime!” 😦

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Alberto Del Rio vs Big Show

Robbie’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – I really don’t care anymore. I hope to God after the match Big Show lays out Alberto with a K.O. and Dolph better get his ass to the ring!

Shane’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – Someone get me Ziggler, stat!

Derick’s Pick: Alberto Del Rio – Due to Mexican Shenanigans!

World Heavyweight Championship No. 1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match

Robbie’s Pick: Chris Jericho – Time for my boy to be back in the title picture and his feud with Ziggler to pick up where it left off 6 months ago.

Shane’s Pick: Randy Orton – Babyface chasing a heel Ziggler into Mania…sounds like a plan.

Derick’s Pick: Randy Orton

John Cena, Ryback & Sheamus vs. The Shield 

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus – I really hope not but they gotta keep their “golden boy” and Rumble Winner “looking Strong”. One question if The Shield are to stop the injustices within the WWE where the hell were they when Cena won the Rumble!?!?!?

Shane’s Pick: The Shield – By way of “The Sword”…Brock Lesnar!

Derick’s Pick: The Shield – I’m just not picking John Cena (Hulk Hogan Jr.) for anything the rest of the year.

WWE United States Championship Match: Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz

Robbie’s Pick: Antonio Cesaro – The dude is just to much into his “I Love America so much I’m saving it from itself gimmick” I see The Miz possibly taking it from him when Ric Flair is in his corner. If Ric is there at the Chamber I can see Antonio dropping it at The Chamber. Ric will probably be there for The Miz at Mania and give him his first real “feel good” Wrestlemania Moment as a Face.

Shane’s Pick: Antonio Cesaro – Other than get his ass handed to him in beatdowns and various furniture tossing, what has Miz done lately?  Ceasro for the win.

Derick’s Pick: Antonio Cesaro – Am I supposed to do the double fist pump like he does when I choose him…What should I do with my hands!?!?!?

Divas Championship Match: Kaitlyn vs Tamina Snuka

Robbie’s Pick: Kaitlyn – Trish Stratus 2.0 will continue in her struggle to try to make the Diva’s Championship look relevant again. Good Luck with that.

Shane’s Pick: Kaitlyn – She’s been crammed down my throat enough to know who she is now, sadly.  Where’s Sara Del Rey again?

Derick’s Pick: Kaitlyn – Even though I still don’t know who the F*** she is! To add to Rob’s note, It would take every Diva from the 90’s to mid-2000’s returning at the same time to make that division relevant again.

Elimination Chamber Pre-Show Match: Brodus Clay & Tensai vs. Team Rhodes Scholars

Robbie’s Pick: Brodus Clay & Tensai – Rhodes Scholars breaks up and reunites for one night to win to a newly formed random Tag Team that WWE threw together. Not by any logic I have ever seen.

Shane’s Pick: Brodus Clay & Tensi – What now? 

Derick’s Pick:  Brodus Clay and Tensai –See this is what gets me. This is just a cluster-f*** of everything that I SHOULD like but can’t get into it. You have Brodus which I have loved from day one. You have Tensai rocking a Japanese gimmick but they dropped most of the elements that made it cool. Plain and simple I just don’t know if this will work long term for most people. There is only one place all this stuff and coexist and that is in my brain and well that folks…that’s just a place ain’t no body got time to visit… nor should you!
