Prophecies of MCM0530

Backlash 2017

Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal

WWE Championship

Prediction:Jinder Mahal
Prophecy:When the U.S. title gets more attention than the WWE Championship, you know there's something broken. Randy Orton's title run has been boring AF this time around, so if Jinder is going to win the title so WWE can break into the Indian market, this is the time to do it. I predict the Jinderella story starts at Backlash.
Result:Jinder Mahal wins
1 Point Awarded

The Usos vs. Breezango

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship

Prophecy:The Smackdown Tag Team Championship has been extremely stale since WWE completely dropped the ball with American Alpha. Hopefully, Fandango and Breeze get a chance here to wear some gold... err silver...
Result:The Usos wins
0 Points Awarded

Kevin Owens vs. A.J. Styles

WWE United States Championship

Prediction:Kevin Owens
Prophecy:Owens has already played hot potato with the title once since Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, I don't see him doing it again this soon. AJ should be World Champion anyway.
Result:Kevin Owens wins
1 Point Awarded

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler

Prediction:Shinsuke Nakamura
Prophecy:Yeeeeeeeeowwwww! This match and the Styles/Owens match will definitely be the best matches of the night. I don't see Nakamura losing his main roster debut (that would be Chaos), but I guess it's possible if they're going to extend this feud over the next couple of events. I'll stick with Nakamura.
Result:Shinsuke Nakamura wins
1 Point Awarded

Naomi, Becky Lynch & Charlotte vs. The Welcoming Committee

Six-Woman Tag Team Match

Prediction:The Welcoming Committee
Prophecy:Carmella has pinned Naomi twice, so I see that being the next title program. I see a twist coming with Becky possibly turning on Naomi and Charlotte. Either way, I expect the Welcoming Committee to take this one.
Result:The Welcoming Committee wins
1 Point Awarded

Baron Corbin vs. Sami Zayn

Prediction:Baron Corbin
Prophecy:Corbin has been getting a push for a while and unfortunately, Zayn has not. BFC will most likely take this one. Another option would be Corbin getting disqualified for assaulting the referee, but we'll just have to see.
Result:Sami Zayn wins
0 Points Awarded

Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

Prediction:Erick Rowan
Prophecy:This could really go either way. Neither one have really been taken seriously outside the Wyatt family, so hopefully they'll put on a good match. I am going with Rowan based on his Talking Smack segment with all his weird sheep masks. I feel like they are trying to go somewhere with that.
Result:Luke Harper wins
0 Points Awarded

Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English

Kickoff Match

Prediction:Tye Dillinger
Prophecy:I don't see Dillinger losing this match. Look for the Chicago crowd to get themselves over by yelling "10" the entire match (and possibly the entire night) and for Aiden English to cry some more. Remember when wrestlers got over based on talent and not whether or not they have a gimmick the crowd can play sing-a-long with?
This is my lock.
Result:Tye Dillinger wins
