| Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville vs. King Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev |

Ryan Davis: I don’t have to care about this match, right? Because I don’t. This is a match that has no reason to happen, so why should I care about it?

Prediction: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville

Dylan Osborn: Well we saw this match on RAW so why not see it again. For the people involved, they shouldn’t be on the freaking pre-show, but we should still get a somewhat entertaining match, I mean, WWE had nothing better to do with them, so I guess it makes sense putting them here.

Prediction: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville

| WWE Tag Team Championship – The New Day(c) vs. The Dudley Boyz |

Ryan Davis: Haven’t we seen this match enough? These two teams have gotten their hands on each other to often in the short amount of time their program has existed for me to really be hyped for this match. It will be a good match, there’s no doubt in my mind about that, but so were their other matches. I hope something new happens in this match. Whether it’s Dudley Boyz winning the titles or New Day actually defeating the Dudleys clean, something new needs to happen in this feud.

Prediction: The New Day

Dylan Osborn: Talk about build, The New Day have been on a roll! Winning a majority of their matches and having the upper hand against The Dudleyz (and sometimes John Cena) most of the time. With that said, The Dudleyz haven’t been booked awful or weak, they’ve had their moments including putting Xavier Woods through a table this past RAW. Going into the match, it should be a great contest, The Dudleyz have shown they still have what it takes, and The New Day are the best tag team in WWE right now. I feel The Dudleyz winning makes sense with how long The New Day have been champions, but it would look rather silly having The New Day look so damn strong only to lose.

Prediction: The New Day

| WWE Intercontinental Championship – Kevin Owens(c) vs. Ryback |

Ryan Davis: Regular readers of KOW Empire, you already know how much I dislike Ryback and like Owens, so I don’t have to explain that. With that said, I’m looking forward to this match, why? Because Kevin Owens is going to win and retain his championship and Ryback is going to lose another match. PERFECT!

Prediction: Kevin Owens

Dylan Osborn: Not exactly a compelling feud, but it hasn’t been awful, both men for the most part have been kept away from each other, having separate matches on RAW, Owens looks the stronger going in, especially with Ryback losing to Rollins on this week’s RAW. The match itself will be a decent enough match like their NOC one was, Ryback is a good wrestler on his day and Owens is good enough to carry him through it.

Prediction: Kevin Owens

| WWE Divas Championship – Charlotte(c) vs. Nikki Bella |

Ryan Davis: Again, to regular readers, you know how much I don’t like Charlotte. Unlike 99% of people, I will not say Charlotte is a great wrestler. She’s above average to me. Add that with not really having a character at all, I don’t care for her whatsoever. She doesn’t even know her father’s “Wheelin’ Dealin” shtick. How does Ric Flair’s daughter fail at being Ric Flair’s daughter. Becky Lynch > Charlotte. When making predictions, you’re not supposed to pick who you want to win, but who you think will win, but with this match, I just cannot bring myself to write that Charlotte will win this match, my heart will not allow me to.

Prediction: Nikki Bella

Dylan Osborn: WWE have booked Charlotte poorly since winning the title, her only wins have been this week’s RAW and the RAW after NOC, besides that she’s lost on a weekly basis and is normally the one getting pinned, were as Nikki has been racking up wins. Say what you will about how bad Nikki was with defending the title, at least she won her matches regularly. The match has a chance of being good with Nikki improving a lot recently and Charlotte being a good overall wrestler when she wants to be. With how things have been going I’m going with Nikki regaining the title with a perhaps swerve by Becky to fully break up PCB.

Prediction: Nikki Bella

| Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt – Hell In A Cell Match |

Ryan Davis: Anyone but Roman? How about anything but this match? Holy crap, I care so little about this match it’s crazy… and it’s a Hell In A Cell match! I do see this match being good and will not insult me, but the buildup gets TWO thumbs down from me, this should’ve ended at SummerSlam. Hopefully, HOPEFULLY this is the blow-off match.

Prediction: Roman Reigns

Dylan Osborn: Both cell matches being non title matches is rather strange but I guess it makes sense with how WWE have booked it. Back to square one with this story being about Bray and Roman, which I don’t mind, they’ve had some great singles moments such as Roman’s promo on this week’s RAW and their finish a couple of weeks back when both men were laid out to end the show. This match could potentially be awesome as Roman has improved leaps and bounds this year singles wise, and this feels like Bray’s type of match.

Prediction: Roman Reigns

| United States Championship – John Cena(c) vs. TBD |

Ryan Davis: JOHN CENA’S GONE, JOHN CENA’S GOOOOOOOONE. Yes, rumors have been swirling…. SWIRLING that John Cena is taking a few weeks off beginning this Sunday. Expect Cena to give it his all in this match. The man works hard, especially this year as he’s been on fire. I like to keep it kayfabe and we have to respect the championship 60-Day rule, Cena cannot retain in this match. AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA must stop being champion of these United States of America, hopefully to a fellow American.

Prediction for Mystery Opponent: Dean Ambrose

Prediction: Dean Ambrose(it will be Dean Ambrose)

Dylan Osborn: In terms of predictions for who Cena will be facing, my 3 would be: Dean Ambrose as he literally has nothing going on that night, Tyler Breeze if he does end up debuting this week on SD this week and finally, Chris Jericho. Yes I know, a bit of a wild card choice, but hey I feel even though it would be an obvious Cena win, the match itself would be kick fucking ass. I would like to see Cena drop the belt and take a break until 2016 title chasing wise, but I think we can safely say Cena will retain this Sunday, but any of the men I’ve chosen would have a great match against him. The US open challenge matches are always good, I expect this one to be no different.

Prediction for Mystery Opponent: Dean Ambrose, Tyler Breeze, or Chris Jericho

Prediction: John Cena

| WWE World Heavyweight Championship – Seth Rollins(c) vs. Kane |

Ryan Davis: I actually like Kane. He can still go and look at this buildup, if WWE gives Kane something to actually do, he’s pretty entertaining. Yes, I know it’s 2015 and Kane’s getting a title match, but it doesn’t bother me much. If this was Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, or Survivor Series, I would have a problem with it, but it’s not, it’s a transitional Pay-Per-View so I’m alright with it. But, it has Seth Rollins in this match and looking at Seth’s ENTIRE booking as WWE champion, this won’t be a clean finish. If anything, Big Show will run in and interfere and set up a Kane/Big Show feud.

Prediction: Seth Rollins

Dylan Osborn: This honestly on paper would seem like a very bad idea. But WWE have booked this well enough to get me into this story, with how they brought back corporate Kane and all the mind games he’s played. To having Demon Kane compete in matches to show he can still wrestle, I feel this match will be very solid at least, might even be a sleeper for match of the night as Rollins can carry matches very well, such as against Sting at NOC. With the stipulations, I feel Kane will capture BUT have Sheamus cash in, therefore corp. Kane keeps his job, but Rollins still loses the title. I feel that’s the best suited end to this match, as much as most including myself would rather see Sheamus cash in during 2016, this can still be pulled off well, maybe have Rollins take out Kane and take the rematch for himself or something along those lines, as I’m sure people would complain about Sheamus vs Kane.

Prediction: Kane

| The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar – Hell In A Cell Match |

Ryan Davis: Who wins? Will Lesnar win and Undertaker, here, take this L going into WrestleMania OR will Undertaker win and Lesnar, here, take this L? It’s very interesting to see what happens on Sunday because essentially neither of these men can afford to lose because WrestleMania is really going to be built around these two. The two biggest matches on that show will be Undertaker’s match and then Brock Lesnar’s match. I do think this match will be weird. With these two, you’d imagine they will have a brutal match(as they did in their last Hell In A Cell math), but it’s PG, Taker’s a bit older, etc. Can we just have Demon Kane rip the cell door off, tombstone Untertaker and that results in Lesnar winning to set up Kane vs Undertaker at WrestleMania?

Prediction: Brock Lesnar

Dylan Osborn: Well after the, let’s be honest, terrible finish at Summerslam, I wasn’t to keen on this match, but thought better to have it go one more match with a better finish and hopefully better match to end this feud. Considering WWE have still kept it rather low key whose face and heel, I guess it’s up to fans to decide who to boo and cheer at the outcome. The build for this match wasn’t as good as Summerslam so I’m a little less invested promo and build wise, I expect WWE to give Taker the win so he can end this chapter on a high note, potentially his last match ever outside of next year’s Wrestlemania. Undertaker winning won’t hurt Brock per say, but I’d much rather have Brock win here as it would make more sense in whose staying in the WWE longer and will be appearing more often.

Prediction: Undertaker
