Hello everybody! It’s @TheMagnumDA with ROUND TWO of the Three Stages of Pick’em Hell – WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia! Today, WO’s Colin Vassallo looks for a clean sweep to claim the Undisputed WOPC Championship and head to WrestleMania as the Pick’em Champion. If I have anything to say about it, we’re going to be sticking around after tonight’s show. Hopefully not as long as the wrestlers had to stay on the tarmac last time they were in Saudi Arabia! 😀
Just to recap, if I win today’s Pick’em Contest, we will have a Tiebreaker THIS SATURDAY NIGHT for AEW Revolution – the first ever AEW Pick’em Contest!
What are we waiting for? ON WITH THE PICKS!
Viking Raiders vs. The OC (Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson)
Magnum: It’s all about who’s on the upswing…I see the Viking Raiders as two guys in the Andre Battle Royal. I see The OC as a unit hell-bent on destroying The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Who’s going to get the W? I’ll take the George Costanza route – I think it’s going to be The OC, but I’ll take the Viking Raiders.
Colin: Gallows and Anderson have been victims of horrible booking since day one here in WWE. Not their fault, but they are really wasted. Viking Raiders win.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Mansoor
Magnum: Mansoor is undefeated at these Saudi Arabia shows – why stop now? He beat over 50 guys in a Battle Royal once! Do you think Ziggler’s going to stop him? That’s hilarious – better than anything from Dolph’s stand-up act. Mansoor wins!
Colin: I don’t see Mansoor losing in his own backyard. I know Vince likes to do that. But we are in Saudi here so if he values his life…. I say Mansoor goes over. Big time.
Angel Garza vs. Humberto Carrillo
Magnum: These two have had a spotlight shined on them since Andrade grabbed some bench, and they have not disappointed. Ultimately, I could see these guys, Rey Rey, and Andrade in a Fatal 4 Way at WrestleMania for the United States Championship. For tonight, though…give me Angel Garza. That dude’s gaining some serious momentum.
Colin: I am starting to like Garza. I don’t know if the addition of Zelina Vega helped…but ya know… two very talented individuals here. I think Carrillo will win this one.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) (c) vs. The Miz and John Morrison
Magnum: The Dirt Sheet is back, baby! Miz’s TV show is pretty funny, but his in-ring persona has been as stale as week-old bread…getting Morrison back into the mix has actually helped both of them! Though, to be honest…I don’t know if they’re as funny as they think they are. That said, the rocket is strapped to their ass, so we better get used to them on top! Miz and Morrison take the straps.
Colin: I’m hoping we see new tag team champions here (Miz & Morrison). They haven’t done much with Morrison since he came back. I thought he’d have a better program than in a tag with Miz again. Time to get the titles off the New Day. #AndNew
Gauntlet Match for the Tuwaiq Trophy
AJ Styles vs. Andrade vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Erick Rowan vs. R-Truth vs. Rey Mysterio
Magnum: I’m torn – part of me feels like this will be another rib (like Shane McMahon winning the World Cup), in which I would pick R-Truth in an instant. Okay, who am I kidding – the rib’s coming. R-Truth wins!
Colin: What a weird name for a trophy isn’t it? I think Vince told someone to Google Saudi Arabia and pick a name and the genius behind the keyboard picked that one. Meh. I say AJ Styles wins and with The Undertaker there, maybe planting the first seed for their rumored Mania match?
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley (c) vs. Naomi
Magnum: I am sure that these two are thrilled at the prospect of being relegated from WrestleMania to this show. I think that WWE wants to really have a lot of surprises this evening, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Naomi takes the title. That said, I’ll stick with Bayley – you can’t end this historic title reign anywhere else but WrestleMania.
Colin: Not expecting them to pull the title from Bayley before WrestleMania. I’m hoping it will be Bayley vs Sasha at Mania. With that said, I’m really looking forward to see Naomi’s glow entrance. But Bayley wins.
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
Seth Rollins and Murphy (c) vs. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford)
Magnum: The Street Profits’ stock is on the rise, but tonight belongs to the Monday (Thursday?) Night Messiah. Rollins and Murphy retain.
Colin: I like The Street Profits. I think Montez Ford will be a huge superstar one day, I really do. He has IT. Can’t see Rollins and Murphy losing here though. The Monday Night Messiah thing is working. #AndStill
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Ricochet
Magnum: Something unique is going to happen here – I bet this match ends up being a million times better than people are expecting…or it could be an 8-second squash! Either way, if Goldberg wasn’t taking the Universal Title, I’d roll with Ricochet…but, nah. Brock retains.
Colin: I predict an upset. Ricochet wins! Okay, I’m just kidding. There’s more chance of me becoming a millionaire this week or scoring a date with Lana than Ricochet winning the title. Brock retains.
Steel Cage Match
Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin
Magnum: Tonight, Roman finally puts Corbin away and sets his sights on the Universal Champion. Roman wins big.
Colin: Just get King Corbin off my TV. I need a break from him. He really annoys me. Cool match for Saudi though, you know, with cages and stuff. Roman Reigns reigns supreme.
WWE Universal Championship
“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Goldberg
Magnum: Oooh, doggie. This is the one that the world is talking about. Apparently, if you’re following the real dirt sheets (and not the ones with Miz and Morrison), you’ve probably heard or read that the Main Events for WrestleMania are getting switched around. Personally, I’m hoping for a Triple Threat at WM – Edge vs. Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns – SPEARFEST 2020! Okay, I’m just kidding. 😀 In all seriousness, I think they’ve learned that Bray Wyatt can be in a big time match without needing the Championship. Give me Goldberg in a shocker.
Colin: This is an interesting one because I genuinely think it could go either way. Do I agree with Goldberg getting another title reign? Hell no. I still think though that The Fiend will retain here somehow, maybe with a screwy finish or something.
There you have it, friends! If I take tonight’s Pick’em, we’ll see you Saturday Night for AEW Revolution!! @TheMagnumDA signing off.
