Summerslam Thoughts and NXT Predictions

I have a huge problem when there are two title matches that end in DQ, especially when there is only a total of 6 matchs. I was fairly on the mark when it came to my predictions.

Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston- I said that Kofi would probably win but not walk away with the title. I figured Vickie would interfer. I was way wrong. But still, it was a disappointing match because both have big potential to put on good matchs.

Melina vs Alicia Fox - It was a decent match for a divas match. Atleast there was no jello or pillows in the fight. I didnt expect LayCool to come down at the end of the match.

Big Show vs CM Punk/Luke Gallows/Joseph Not Joey Mercury - I expected the SES to walk away with the win. I was wrong. It was a short decent match.

Randy Orton vs Sheamus. This match could have stolen the card if it wasn't for it ending in a DQ. Sheamus lost, but retained the title. It was pretty awesome to see Sheamus go through the table though.

Rey Mysterio vs Kane. I know it was totally predictable that Undertaker was going to be there, in the casket. But it still was a great match, made even better by the return of the true legends of wrestling.

Raw vs Nexus - I know I said Nexus would win. I should have remembered that John Cena is this generation's Hulk Hogan. He never loses the big match. He rarely loses on PPV anyway. It was great to see Daniel Bryan back. I think he got screwed out of that whole situation. It was only a matter of time until he came back.

There are 3 left in NXT. I am pulling for Michael McGuilicuty or Alex Riley. I wouldn't be upset if Kaval wins, but I was McGuility to win more.

Summerslam Predictions

Today is Summerslam so let the predicitions begin:

Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston for the IC Title. I see Dolph retaining thanks to Vickie Guerrero. I am not saying Dolph wins the match, but he will retain the title anyway. Either by countout or DQ.

Melina vs ALicia Fox for the Divas title. Winner and new Divas champion! Melina!

Big Show vs CM Punk, Luke Gallows and Joey Mercury. It's hard to argue against Big Show, no matter how many opponents he faces. But I still say that Straight Edge Society win.

Kane vs Rey Mysterio. Kane will retain his title. It will be a great match with a lot of back and forth. But I think Kane will win.

Randy Orton vs Sheamus. I expect HHH to make his return during the match. And I think Randy Orton will defeated Sheamus for the title.

Team WWE vs The Nexus. One member of the Team WWE will be revealed as the lead of the Nexus and turn on the Team WWE allowing Nexus to win.

Lets see how well I do

The Invasion Edition

Yes, I know it's been a very long time since an update here inside the Wrestling Ring. But here we go.

Both Monday Night Raw and Thursday Night Impact are dealing with their own invasions. Raw has been dealing with the Nexus for several months. And now it looks like TNA is dealing with a Hardcore invasion with former OECW (Original ECW) wrestlers.

Yes, I know that Dixie Carter invited Dreamer and Crew to appear, but clearly based on Raven's actions at the end of last week not everyone is on the same page. I keep hearing that there is going to be more of an Invasion coming. After all, many people believed that "They" Abyss was talking about for weeks are the former OECW wrestlers invited. But they arent. Could there be more coming?

One of my first wrestling blogs was about how TNA has no originility. That they steal past ideas from other wrestling organizations. Um.... Hard"core" Justice just furthers that point. I always keep telling myself that I am not going to watch anymore TNA because I am tired of them having no originality. And yet, somehow every Thursday that I am home I am tuned to Spike. I can't explain it. I honestly think that last week's episode was the worst episode I have seen, with the exception of the Tag team match.
