Taz had an awesome idea last week on his show to get Finn into the Brock/Goldberg match as a triple threat to give him the title back and protect Goldberg from being exposed as a 2-move guy, especially now. Gives the fans a match that is more than 2 minutes and continues his story line.....
....but hearing over and over again that Brock is supposed to just murder everyone until Roman saves the day next year at WM (similar to what was supposed to happen 2 years ago before the cash-in call) obviously conflicts with that idea....
I'm actually really surprised how little I care about NXT going into the next Takeover. Loving what I see from Nakamura, Roode, Asuka, Ember Moon, Kay/Payton, the tag teams, Sanity, even Cien..... just, nothing story-wise going on for me.
I think Mojo is winning ARMBAR. Would love to see him turn and go against Ryder when he comes back.... but I think he'll just have a "building" year like Corbin this year off ARMAR.
Enzo & Cass are winning the Raw Tag Titles. Hopefully losing them back to The Club Monday.... As much as I'd love to see Finn & The Club together in WWE, I don't see heel Finn being a thing after a comeback....and I don't see them wanting to make The Club a good-guy team.
Friggin Austin Aries at Wrestlemania. I can't wait to see him win. Loved him in TNA, can't wait to see him try to make the cruiserweights past Neville's old school heel promos every night promoting 205 Live.
I really hope Asuka debuts and wins in Smackdown's women's match. Her continuing her streak on the main roster allows for more non-title feuds, but if she doesn't debut I think Becky wins it back. They're definitely having surprises here, so maybe Lita (worked an indie recently) or that celebrity that gets WM matches....Eva probably. Hopefully no Naomi....they might expect a "hometown" reaction with her and I don't think they'll get it.
Corbin over Ambrose. Hopefully it's a hardcore match. Hopefully this ends up being what the Brock match could have been last year. I'd like to see Corbin fighting Harper for a bit and Ambrose moving up to the main title picture again, except properly this time. Less goofy, and more Mankind IMO.
Cena & Nikki with the big proposal after. This is actually one of my favorite things going into WM, even though it's very telegraphed. Miz & Maryse have been killing it. Hopefully Nikki retires after this though (dem promos) and we get a nice break from Cena for a few months until Summerslam.
Owens hopefully kills Jericho. Just, straight kill him. If Jericho wins it will be just as big of a headscratcher as Styles' match last year.
Sasha winning by turning on Bayley. But I see this backfiring, they somehow fucked up Bayley's charm lately so people are just going to be indifferent towards her and still cheer Sasha. At the same time, I can't wait to see Bayley Sasha III.
Shane is beating AJ. I have a feeling this is going to be a wicked awesome match (read: spot-fest) but I have a bad feeling that the teasing of Sami to Smackdown and AJ to Raw was foreshadowing. Hopefully a Club reunion on Raw to against Finn would be fun to watch, but Finn would have to win that since he's coming back. And with no title on Raw because of part-timers....I'd rather AJ stay on Smackdown.....but I just don't think that'll happen.
Roman retiring Undertaker. I think it's not going to be bad, but I mean, how can Roman beating up Undertaker be good? Based on the Roman vs Brock rumor for next year, I'm going to guess Roman beats Owens, HHH, AJ (if he ends up on Raw), and Braun a second time in the next year to build him up for Brock.
Brock beating Goldberg. Quick. I'm guessing 5 suplexes, & 3 F5s. F it, here's the match, Spear, Jackhammer, kickout, Spear reversal to suplexes, F5, F5, F5, pin. I'm guessing Brock holds the title until next year, with only 6 PPV matches until then. Beating Roman at Summerslam, and let's say KO (clean), Finn (with Club interference), Seth Rollins (clean), AJ (clean, if on Raw), and maybe Nakamura? (actual good match)
And Orton beating Bray. I really really really hope this match is amazing. The one I got to see in person at No Mercy was good....but I want great here. I love the theory from Rowan's Twitter. During this whole angle there was video of him moving a body bag and saying shit like 2 people knowing is too many people. I think he moved Sister Abigail from the fire and this reuinites the family.... or not. I dunno.
Again, I'm really surprised at how much I'm looking forward to WM even though it's supposed to be more mainstream focused than hardcore focused. I'm OK with Roman & Brock winning again just because no matter how much Raw gets fucked up, I'll still have Smackdown's greatness.
Nakamura to Raw....with feuds against KO, Finn, & AJ (if traded).
The Revival to Smackdown....hopefully learning from mistakes with The Ascension. I really like what the Uso's are doing right now, but these guys could be an awesome secondary team to have on the show.
Asuka to Smackdown. Just killing everyone, never losing, only losing in non-finishes or 3rd/4th person getting pinned.
Draft Whenever the hell this will be....maybe in a few months?

For the Hardys......I'd love for them to keep the Broken stuff in WWE, but I doubt it will happen. My ideal would be continuing the quest for gold and going against all 3 brands, appearing and disappearing randomly with all their "matches" being self-contained Network specials from the compound and other zany places like the WWE warehouse, offices, or in streets. How awesome would it be to see the old Smackdown or Raw stage/titantrons again because the Hardys teleported there?
....but we're probably going to get vanilla Hardys back on Raw similar to the Dudley's last run. Not getting my hopes up for them at all. Excited, curious, but reserved I guess.
I dunno. It's a fun time of year for this speculation/fantasy stuff.
