WWE Extreme Rules. The Extreme Event set in a world of PG rules. So, yeah this PPV isn’t really going to hardcore or anything but never the less lets see how WWE plans to hold our attention following a good Wrestlemania Event…

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton

Robbie’s Pick: Seth Rollins – The RKO being banned won’t matter. Randy will RKO Seth just for spite and I see Orton losing by a DQ.

Shane’s Pick: Hulk Hogan – As much as I hate to pick Hogan, it’s apparent he’s been running strong recently, tagging with Booty Man and winning matches like crazy.  

Derick’s Pick: Sid Vicious- Sid has the deck stacked up against him. First, he has the Harris Brothers. We’ve seen over the past month what they are capable of. But Sid is Sid. He’ll defeat them and take our Nash to become world champ. Book that!

WWE United States Championship Russian Chain Match: John Cena vs Rusev

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – I’m actually digging Cena in this role. Let’s leave him here awhile and maybe he will deflect a lot of hate.

Shane’s Pick: Konnan – I see Konnan retaining the US title for this match.  He hasn’t yet really connected with the fans, but still, he’s clearly the guy they’re going with right now.

Derick’s Pick: Shane Douglas- Chain matches are intense. And no other feud is more intense than Shane Douglas and General Rection. This will come down to determination, will and most importantly, experience. I expect The Franchise top pull this out, if not barely.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Daniel Bryan vs Bad News Barrett

Robbie’s Pick: Bad News Barrett – My guess is WWE is going to take Bryan of TV for awhile and have a full medical evaluation. I’m not sure what he’s suffering from but there is no reason for Daniel to keep pushing himself until he ends up like Stone Cold, Edge or so many others. I really fear Daniel’s days as a wrestler are closing in and that’s sad.

Shane’s Pick: The Belfast Bruiser – He debuted great against Regal at Uncensored and had a hell of a match, so I expect that to carry over here.

Derick’s Pick: Glacier to win- With his 400 year old helmet handed down to him by some old dude in Japan, Glacier gets his vengeance tonight after the many beat downs by Wrath and Mortis. Glacier via Cryonic Kick to Wrath.

WWE Diva’s Championship Match: Nikki Bella vs Naomi

Robbie’s Pick: Naomi – Are the Bellas still leaving WWE?

Shane’s Pick: Bull Nakano- Really, she’s the best female wrestler in the company right now…how do you pick against her?

Derick’s Pick: Devil Masami- Now we go Live via satellite to Kanagawa, Japan for the Women’s title bout. Devil wins via Fire Valley to win. Sorry Zero, you knew your days were numbered.

Last Standing Match: Roman Reigns vs The Big Show

Robbie’s Pick: Roman Reigns – Good Lord this match reaks of bleakness but “we gotta make sure Roman looks strong.”

Shane’s Pick: The Giant – He’s been showing a lot of flavor since turning against the Dungeon of Doom a few weeks ago…that being said, Jimmy Hart did pay him off to beat up Sting recently, so we’ll see.

Derick’s Pick:  Ernest Miller- “The Cat” is not to be messed with. Once you get hit by the Feliner, you’ll be down for WAY longer than 10 seconds. Be sure to ask Elix Skipper tonight on the post-show what it’s like to get danced on by The Cat!!!

Chicago Street Fight: Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper

Robbie’s Pick: Dean Ambrose

Shane’s Pick: Sting and Booker T – Lex Luger’s mouth may have gotten Sting into this match, but it will be Sting and Booker T that take out the Road Warriors and show who is dominate in WCW’s tag team division.

Derick’s Pick – Dustin Rhodes – This match is dangerous. Very dangerous. You have 2 competitors on the back of a big rig, trying to ring a bell on the other side of the tractor trailer. This honestly is a toss up, so I’m gonna pick Dustin.

Kiss My Arse Match: Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus

Robbie’s Pick: Sheamus – Good Lord WWE! Stop making Dolph look stupid by putting him in terrible situations and awful matches!

Shane’s Pick: Marcus Alexander Bagwell – This kid has an amazing dropkick and it’s going to lead him to singles glory right now.

Derick’s Pick:  Jericho to retain- Raven is great. He really is. But expect Jericho Security to interfere to allow Chris to retain via Liontamer.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs The New Day

Robbie’s Pick: Cesaro and Kidd – Way to keep Cesaro on the preshow….again…

Shane’s Pick: Public Enemy – They got a good one over on the Nasty Boys the other night, so I see that carrying over to this match as well.

Derick’s Pick:  Minnesota Wrecking crew: I see the MWC going over Flair and Valentine. Gene and Old are on a huge roll as of late. Plus it seems to me that Flair has his eyes on the main title. So MWC to retain.

Here we are at WWE’s biggest PPV of the year. While this hasn’t exactly been the most thrilling ride on the Road to Wrestlemania, there are still a few matches on this card I’m interested in seeing. That and it is Wrestlemania so it’s kinda of tradition. Let’s take a look and see how Kick Out at 2 predicts the outcome of Wrestlemania 31.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns

Robbie’s Pick: Brock Lesnar – I’m really glad to hear that Brock resigned with the WWE and that he has effectively retired from the world of MMA. I think Brock is exactly where he should be and I honestly do not see him letting go of the championship any time soon. In fact, if he holds onto the title for roughly 7 more months, he will take away CM Punk’s record of being the longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era. With Punk not being one of WWE’s favorite people, I could really see them using Brock to take that achievement away from The Second City Saint. Brock isn’t going anywhere for awhile so they may as well make use of that new 3 year contract.

Shane’s Pick: Brock Lesnar – The moment Brock made his announcement, I feel that solidified him as keeping his belt at Mania.  They may still feel the need to go with their favorite boy in the end and give Reigns the belt, but I just feel that if they push him for another year, let him get better and make him earn it, then this same match at WM32 with Reigns winning will taste a lot better than it would this year.

Derick’s Pick: Brock Lesnar – Because he’s Brock F***ING! Lesnar!

Sting vs Triple H

Robbie’s Pick: Sting – I know this is the match that Shane and Derick are looking forward to the most so I will let the Master of WCW knowledge explain this match.

Shane’s Pick: Sting – Potentially the Stinger’s last match and I don’t believe that they’d bring him all the way in just to lose that one final match since this one isn’t against Taker.  This is the match I’m looking most forward to, just as Robbie said, and just as you can all read about in my Kick Out at Nitro segments!  I am, however, calling some interference by Sting’s longest foe, The Nature Boy, right now.

Derick’s Pick: Sting – I was WCW before I was WWE so I gotta go with what I know. Sorry, Hunter…. but “You’re still the best at Wrestling

WWE Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Daniel Bryan vs Stardust vs Dolph Ziggler vs Luke Harper vs Dean Ambrose vs R-Truth vs Bad News Barrett

Robbie’s Pick: Daniel Bryan – My guess is WWE uses Daniel to help elevate the Intercontinental division. With Brock keeping the main title, I see them using top tier talent as the Intercontinental and United States Champions.

Shane’s Pick: Dean Ambrose – Honestly, I think it’ll be Bryan, but I’ve now sided with my compatriots twice and I didn’t want the third one in a row to happen.  I do REALLY hope it’s Ambrose, though!

Derick’s Pick: Daniel Bryan – Time to bring the IC title back to some relevancy.

The Undertaker vs Bray Wyatt

Robbie’s Pick: The Undertaker – The Streak is over and we haven’t seen The Undertaker in a year. I see him returning with a vengeance, with a purpose and the Dead Man will be there to show he hasn’t missed a step. My only question is will he return as The Dead Man, Big Evil or a new version we haven’t seen yet? At the end of the day, it isn’t Wrestlemania without The Undertaker.

Shane’s Pick: The Undertaker – As much as I would like to see Bray get this win, it doesn’t mean as much as it could have now.  Taker comes back, everyone is happy with a win and it vindicates last year, we all go home.

Derick’s Pick: The UndertakerSurely they won’t have him lose twice at Wrestlemania. I honestly think they realize they made a mistake last year and don’t see them doing that again.

Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins

Robbie’s Pick: Seth Rollins – I really wanted to pick Orton here. I really did. The only reason I’m not is because I know if Rollins lost here he would go on to cash in later in the night after the Main Event and I just don’t see anyone but Brock walking out as Champion. Orton has already gotten his retribution for being put out of action so I’m going with Rollins. This is the only match I don’t feel good about my pick and if Orton wins I will probably literally” kick myself where my appendix used to be!”

Shane’s Pick: Randy Orton – Seth is bulletproof right now, so the loss to Randy makes the fans happy and Rollins still has that briefcase he can use at any time.

Derick’s Pick:  Seth Rollins – If he loses at Mania it makes him look weak. Being Mr. Money in the Bank, I just see him walking out of Mania with a win.

WWE United States Championship Match: Rusev vs John Cena

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – I’m still surprised Hulk Hogan isn’t in Cena’s corner but then again it may be a last minute addition to the match. I just see Cena winning here and USA getting the best of the “Evil Russian.” With all the America vs Russia stuff in this setup, I can’t see anyone but Hulk Hogan or Sylvester Stallone holding Cena’s hand high in victory.

Shane’s Pick: John Cena – I’m okay with this.  I wasn’t…until I watched Cena on Kimmel the other night.  Why isn’t he like that ALL the time.  Yes, it was jokey Cena, but it wasn’t silly jokey Cena and he actually put over Rusev as a threat…he just made funny comments on how he was going to win.  I liked it.

Derick’s Pick – Rusev – Because F*** Cena that’s why!

Wrestlemania Andre The Giant Battle Royal Match

Robbie’s Pick: Sheamus – Those return videos airing on RAW haven’t been for nothing.

Shane’s Pick: Hideo Itami – ‘Cause, why not?

Derick’s Pick:  Damien Mizdow – Wouldn’t that be the best thing EVER…. OF ALL TIME!?

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs The New Day vs Los Matadores vs The Usos

Robbie’s Pick: Cesaro and Kidd – You don’t put 3 baby face teams against the heels unless you really want them to pull all their hell like shenanigans.

Shane’s Pick: Cesaro and Kidd – What are they going to do…give it to the Uso’s for the eleventieth time?

Derick’s Pick:  Cesaro and Kidd – Cesaro should be the ruler of EVERYTHING!

Diva’s Tag Team Match: AJ Lee and Paige vs The Bella Twins

Robbie’s Pick: AJ and Paige – The Bellas are leaving. I care about that as much as I do this match. Why isn’t this the match that got bumped down to the pre-show?

Shane’s Pick: AJ and Paige – It’s Mania…babyfaces winning makes us feel good.

Derick’s Pick:  AJ and Paige – Because one of The Bellas is dating Cena. Let’s face it, I simply don’t pick anything Cena related….

 

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!

Before we get started I gotta say… 1- I Love This PPV Poster & 2- Watch The PPV Commercial if you haven’t already! Ok now down to the regular monthly business pertaining to our post where Shane, Derick and myself share our views and predictions on the upcoming PPV and its getting to be a close race here at Kick Out at 2.  WWE has decided to return No Way Out back to the normal line-up, to this day I still associate No Way Out to Eddie Guerrero’s WWE Title win but lets see what we have here after a 3 year hiatus from the schedule.

WWE Championship: CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan vs Kane in a Triple-Threat Match

Robbie’s Pick: CM Punk – I still see CM Punk as The WWE Champion after the smoke has settled. This could have been the repeat of another perfect match with to indy guys who made it big in The WWE. I guess that’s why Kane was thrown into the mix so Vince could have one of “his creation”s in the story. 

Shane’s Pick: CM Punk

Derick’s Pick: CM Punk – Let’s keep this gravy train flowing of actual “wrestlers” as Champions.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Sheamus vs Dolph Ziggler

Robbie’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler – It’s his time! WWE needs a fun heel holding a title.

Shane’s Pick: Sheamus – Don’t see that belt coming off of him for a long time.

Derick’s Pick: Dolph Ziggler – I really like Sheamus all around but “the Smark” in me is ready for the Zig-Zag…SUCCCKKKKAAAAA!!!!!

Intercontinental Championship Match: Christian vs Cody Rhodes

Robbie’s Pick: Christian – I swear they better not start the “ping-pong” game again with this title.

Shane’s Pick: Cody Rhodes – I don’t see Christian title runs lasting very long anymore for some reason.

Derick’s Pick: Christian – WWE, you made him go to TNA for a night AND shake Hogan’s hand!! Hasn’t he been punished enough? Let him keep his damn belt!

John Cena vs The Big Show

Robbie’s Pick: John Cena – It still pisses me off to no end that the WWE/World Title are not to focal point of The WWE at the moment. That being said this is one match that I can say I want Cena to win because good lord man! – I thought Michael Cole was bad but putting up with Johnny Ace and Cole on a weekly basis has made it really tough to watch.

Shane’s Pick:  John Cena – So Johnny can come back and bring Brock Lesnar with him and setup the HHH match in August.

Derick’s Pick:  John Cena – Way to reveal the story early again WWE.com

Tuxedo Match: Santino Marella vs. Ricardo Rodriguez

Robbie’s Pick: Santino Marella – The US Title is on a comedy act, not being defended and the talks of unification are floating about the web again… I wonder which title will take precedence soon?

Shane’s Pick: Santino Marella – It’s a fun, feel good match.  Babyface has to go over.

Derick’s Pick: Santino Marella – *Stone Cold Voice* “COBRA! COBRA! COBRA!”… Oh God what’s wrong with my face!?

Diva’s Championship Match: Beth Phoenix vs Layla

Robbie’s Pick: Layla

Shane’s Pick:  Layla – Just because there’s no sense in Divas matches.

Derick’s Pick:  Layla – These Diva segments will get a lot more funnier soon… just wait…just wait.

Brodus Clay vs David Otunga

Robbie’s Pick: Brodus Clay – I am ready for a solid built feud soon though. Hey WWE here’s a thought… Brodus vs Ryback with a touch of “the slow burn” to help both guys out perhaps?????

Shane’s Pick:  Brodus Clay – I really hope this is the start of actual programs for Brodus.

Derick’s Pick: Brodus Clay – I love Brodus but if he is really hurt this is going to be a dumb..dumb match.
