Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English (Kickoff Match)

Winner: Tye Dillinger

Why: Tye has been in limbo since being called up. Since he’s still a relatively new act to the main roster he needs a win here. After this match, creative needs to find an interesting program for Tye.

Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

Winner: Luke Harper

Why: 50/50 booking will rear it’s ugly head here which I’m actually okay with here because there is no reason that Luke Harper should be losing to Erick Rowan.

Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin

Winner: Baron Corbin

Why: It seems like Sami’s fate is to be beaten up by bigger guys. We all know that Corbin is somebody that will be in line for a main event push. Sami’s job on Sunday will be to make Corbin look dangerous with his superior selling.

SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella & Tamina (Six-Woman Tag Team Match)

Winners: Naomi, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch

Why: Naomi, Charlotte, and Becky have not been able to get the better off the “Welcoming Committee” since this feud started. It’s time for the Lass Kicker, the Queen, and the Glow to get some momentum back.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura

Why: Because it’s Shinsuke Nakamura and his opponent Dolph Ziggler. Enough said.

United States Champion Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles

Winner: Kevin Owens

Why: AJ Styles has not beaten Kevin Owens since his WWE debut. I think this stat can be a great narrative used in their feud. I can this feud lasting a couple months with a big blow off at Summerslam.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions
The Usos vs. Breezango

Winners: The Usos

Why: I have to admit that Breezango a.k.a The Fashion Police have been pretty entertaining the last couple of weeks. However, I see the Usos retaining to feud with the returning New Day. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see New Day interrupt the Usos’ victory celebration.

WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal

Winner: Randy Orton

Why: It’s been 3 weeks and Jinder has not delivered a single interesting promo or match. The ratings have taken a nosedive with Jinder in the main event program. I see this Jinder Mahal “experiment” as a failure.
