    takes place on Sunday 9th Oct

    Pre Show
    Jack Swagger vs Baron Corbain

    WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose
    IC Champion The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
    Smackdown Women's champ Becky Lynch vs. Alex Bliss
    SD Tag champs Heath Slater and Rhyno vs. The Usos
    Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt
    Nikki Bella vs. Carmella
    Curt Hawkins vs. TBA

    expecting a standard run of the mill ppv with no real shocks or surprises

    rumours that
    wwe are pursuing Dolph Ziggler for a backstage role similar to Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble. So he may be losing this one

    John Cena and Dean Ambrose are set to go on hiatus to film stuff so expect Styles to retain with possibly help from someone

    Curt hawkins makes his debut but its all pointing towards a certain big red machine to come out and destroy him

    Expecting the USOs to win the tag titles and continue there heel run

    Bray Wyatt to lose yet again and to end the rivilary. Expect Orton to move into the title picture and maybe Bray going for the Intercon title or picking on Apollo Crews for some reason

    Becky to retain and Camilla to beat Nikki Bella

    I think I'll be watching the debate over this I expect a better Smackdown watching Trump and Clinton.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Hope Ziggler gets squashed.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,188 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    Hoping for a big debut or return (not Hawkins) if Cena and Ambrose are heading off.

    Hope Usos win, they are great since the change in attitude. Them v Gable and Jordan, with Heath and Ryhno chasing the titles again could be a good mix with three very differant teams. Could have a good TLC match with that group in December.

    WWE tweeted to say it would be the WWE title match starting the show.

    No clue what mad booking they came up with for this one. Will we get two title matches?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 11,348 ✭✭✭✭ricero


    Reckon miz v ziggler will see out the ppv. Have emotional send off for ziggler.

    Perhaps they didnt want the wwe title match to go up against the trump v clinton debate

    That's to do with the debate more than likely it kicks off at 1.30 am our time I'd say they are expecting horrible viewing figures tonight.

    I was thinking about that but since its on the network the do the figures really matter?Would the debate not be over by the traditional main event time anyway?

    They can tweak the figures anyway they want now with the Network but the watching live viewership will drop big time because of the debate and all the aftershows talking about the debate.


    The PPV on demand over the next 24 hours could pull big numbers but it's the live viewing figures that are always judged on what is a success or not.

    Is this on at midnight or 01:00 our time? I can't remember when the clocks change in the States.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    01:00 start.

    1am as usual, clocks don't change in the US until November 6th (ours is October 30th)


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 30,864 Mod ✭✭✭✭Insect Overlord


    Thanks lads. I'll have a powernap and get up to watch a bit of this live.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,431 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Actually loving the idea of Miz/Ziggler ending the show, given Miz's character direction over the last few weeks.

    God....I am looking forward to a Mis/Dolph match :pac:

    Backstage role.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,026 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Thinking there going to go with the whole distraught Dean Ambrose and John Cena losing angle mid show where they will both announce they are leaving WWE (keyfabe) and both will return rumble time

    A sad Ziggler crying and waving goodbye to end the show Id say

    SD is really low on star power ending 2016 (Cena, Ambrose, Ziggler all gone, Becky hurt, Shane McMahon non existent). Hopefully a few nxt call ups may happen soon (before the 8th Nov Glasgow show as im going to it lol)


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Apparently the finish to Miz/Ziggler may have unintentionally leaked by WWE themselves..

    Also tonight is the first time since '92 an Intercontinental Championship has headlined a PPV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,552 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    The Trump/Clinton debate is going to be box office tonight. Apparently Trump is going to go on the attack to try and save his campaign; it could get very bitter. Not surprised WWE are concerned about viewing numbers for the live show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,888 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    If this was one of the weekly shows I would say the WWE Title match would have shenanigans causing the match to be delayed to the end of the show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Actually refreshing to have this match on first

    Odd to have this promo on right after the entrances, no?


  • Posts: 8,647 [Deleted User]


    This will probably get the lowest ratings going against SNF and the debate.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,830 ✭✭✭shineon23


    Would be a good opportunity to have a women's match in a ppv 'main event' slot, not that it's going to happen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,159 ✭✭✭mrkiscool2


    Over the past 18 months, the greatest WWE matches have all been triple threats, they really get them right! This is another great one


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Another sloppy-ass suicide dive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,377 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Winning a match with a chair shot to the back doesn't sit right with me at all. It should never end a match, a shot to the head back when they were legal was the only time it should happen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 763 ✭✭✭princemuzzy


    That was outstanding


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,023 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    This match could be the Melina vs Alicia Fox of 2016....


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,159 ✭✭✭mrkiscool2


    Ranallo was like "I have no idea what Nikki was doing, lets call it an explosive tackle"
