WWE Super Show-Down Preview

  • Pin It

A 5am start time on a Saturday for a WWE Network event?

Oh that’s right, it is taking place in Austrailia!

WWE Super Showdown is going to be a near sellout, if not a sellout as the company puts on a mega card for the fans of Austrailia. It’s not a coincidence such a massive match card has been put together. With the company heading to Saudi Arabia next month for Crown Jewel, a few of these matches will help lead in to that show, especially the Undertaker vs. Triple H main event.

Here is your match card for the show. I will not be watching live, will watch when I get up just like most of you!

– Asuka and Naomi vs The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce) – 

The IIconics have floundered since joining the main roster. Asuka has endured a similar fate ever since her loss to Charlotte at WrestleMania in New Orleans. This rivalry with Naomi for Billie Kay and Peyton Royce is essentially an afterthought.

Expect Royce and Kay to get the loss, this is a glorified house show. Faces usually go over on house shows unless the heel has the title.

 

– WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Buddy Murphy – 

This Cruiserweight contest may be a wild card for match of the night. As of now, they aren’t on a pre show so it gives them main card spotlight. Buddy Murphy has resurrected his career and it’s about time he gets a title run.

With Neville officially back with Dragon Gate, WWE needs a good heel champion to go on a run. Murphy can be that guy.

Murphy defeats Alexander.

 

– Ronda Rousey and The Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie) vs. The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan) – 

It’s a near guarantee Rousey and the Bellas win here.

I just hope Liv Morgan makes it out of this one without a concussion.

Anyone else wish The Bellas went back to focusing on reality TV and their fashion line stuff?

I like the Bellas, but they’re just not that good anymore when comparing them to this new wave of women’s wrestlers.

 

– Smackdown Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair – 

Becky Lynch as champion has provided quite possibly the most positive reaction I have ever seen from the WWE Universe. As heel or face, Lynch is by far the most cheered women’s wrestler in the company. She is receiving Trish Stratus type reactions, maybe even greater.

Unfortunately, Charlotte has become the target of boos and unfair heckling from the WWE Universe. If Lynch had won at SummerSlam, Charlotte would not be in the tough predicament she is in now. However, we wouldn’t have heel Lynch, who is not only smoking hot as a heel, but she’s got swagger for days.

Lynch will retain but not in a clean way here. This feud has a lot of mileage left in it.

 

– John Cena and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Elias – 

Anyone else love this pairing between Kevin Owens and Elias?

These guys together are pure comedy gold and have tremendous chemistry with one another.

It’s a shame they are going to lose to Cena and Lashley.

John Cena doesn’t lose on shows like this.

He is known as big match John for a reason.

 

– Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz (Winner earns a future WWE Championship Match) – 

The Daniel Bryan and Miz feud has been one of the best things in the WWE these last few months.

Miz is so easily hated but yet, it’s hard not to like him at the same time. He is so arrogant, so loud, but the guy wins. He has a beautiful wife and a child. He is human. There are many that relate to him in regards to working hard their entire career and being overshadowed by the other guy.

Not to put anything against Daniel Bryan, who is the ultimate underdog.

The Miz’s part of the story is just so much more entertaining and relatable. The Bryan story has been played out for years.

However, Bryan is the face of the brand and is due for a WWE title shot, so he will become victorious. Plus, if Miz wins, you know Samoa Joe will lose later in the night. If Bryan wins, both possibilities remain open for the title match.

It’s all about logic.

 

– Smackdown Tag Team Championship: The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and/or Xavier Woods) (c) vs. Cesaro and Sheamus – 

Another potential show stealing match, New Day and The Bar have a lot of chemistry and have worked together on many occasions.

The New Day title reign has a lot more to it, so expect some type of quirky finish which leads to a Crown Jewel rematch.

 

– The Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins) vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre – 

These six man Shield matches are always entertaining and give the fans a show.

It’s hard to see The Shield losing here or Strowman taking the fall, so Ziggler or McIntyre taking the loss is a big possibility.

Expect a lot of chaos, high spots and false finishes mixed with a quality match.

Keep an eye on Dean Ambrose and Drew McIntyre here, both have been on the radar for jumping sides.

 

– WWE Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe (No Count-Outs, No Disqualifications) – 

The most personal rivalry in the business in a long time, this may finally be Joe’s time to win the gold. Styles is almost a year in to his title reign, but a potential match with Miz or Daniel Bryan makes me think Styles will retain.

Joe could win too, bringing us a Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe fantasy feud.

It’s a tough call, but going to pick Styles to retain.

 

– The Undertaker (with Kane) vs. Triple H (with Shawn Michaels) – 

The match everyone is most looking forward to.

After Undertaker and Kane chokeslammed Triple H and Shawn Michaels this past Monday night on Raw, the common thought is Triple H ends up getting the victory.

However, there looks to be a more underlying tale that will be told.

It’s a foreshadowing of what we will see in November at Crown Jewel.

There will NOT be a winner in this match once both Kane and Shawn Michaels get involved.

It will lead to a Brothers of Destruction vs. D-X showdown in Saudi Arabia.

There are rumors the Saudi leaders are paying a “handsome” amount to get Shawn Michaels out of retirement, which would make sense since Michaels has always been so adamant on not returning to the ring.

If there is a winner, it will be Triple H, with Undertaker looking to exact revenge on Shawn Michaels next month, hence the match setup.

 

There’s no other reason for both Michaels and Kane to be at ringside.
