: MNT DEW KICKSTART YOUR HEART SHOW
Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs The Club (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson)
The Build: The Club lost the Tag Titles to The Hardy Boyz and lost the subsequent rematch. Enzo and Big Cass answered an open challenge after The Golden Truth were thankfully destroyed by Braun Strowman. Despite The Club beating Enzo and Cass, we get a rematch here on the Paycheck Kick Off Show.
My Pick: The Club
WWE United States Championship (If Jericho Wins the title, he will join SmackDown): Kevin Owens © vs Chris Jericho
The Build: Owens and Jericho fought to a disappointing conclusion at Mania and this is Jericho’s rematch. Since the Superstar Shake Weight, Owens and Jericho have been separated from each other and this should be the last we see of Jericho for a while. If Jericho does win, he gets sent to SmackDown as well, because Kurt Angle’s pill brain is worse than Daniel Bryan’s concussion brain.
My Pick: Owens.
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship: The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy) © vs Cesaro and Sheamus
The Build: After a surprise return, The Fractured Hardyz won the Raw Tag Team Championships. Sheamus and Cesaro won a number 1 contender match to give them possibly one last chance to become two time champs.
My Pick: The Hardyzzzz, via Cesaro and Sheamus split.
House of Whores Match: Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt
The Build: What was once anticipated to be a great feud turned to rot before our very eyes man. The Eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt held the championship in his holy hands, only for the Viper to sneak up and snatch it away. Once the suits in charge decided that Bray should be moved to a new kingdom, there was one thing left to do, have a House of Whores match man. Now, I know you may be contemplating what a Waffle House of Horrors match is brother, but I can tell you, nobody knows. The title is not even on the line anymore man.
My Pick: Bray, Because Fuck SmackDown Live, Amirite!?
WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Neville © vs Austin Aries
The Build: Austin Aries is the second best Cruiser on the roster, which is why he keeps winning number one contenders matches but Neville is the best. Austin Aries is like the Buffalo Bills when they lost four straight Super Bowls. #Sportsball #StayWoke.
My Pick: Neville
Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman
The Build: Roman Reigns. Braun Strowman. Big sweaty men. Erections to be had.
My Pick: Braun Strowman via anything to keep Roman strong while not burying Braun so he can get buried by Brock.
Seth Rollins vs Samoa Joe
The Build: Joe is upset that Seth hurt Stephanie and Triple H. Joe should be upset he didn’t get paid for WrestleMania.
My Pick: Seth
WWE Raw Women’s Championship: Bayley © vs Alexa Bliss
The Build: The Superstar Weight Loss shake took Charlotte to SmackDown so she could continue to be terrible at promos and brought Alexa, who is arguably the best talker in the Women’s Division, to Raw. Alexa won a number one contenders match because we don’t know how to organically create feuds anymore. Bayley has had a very forgettable and very poorly received title run.
My Pick: Alexa Bliss.
