WWE Payback Predictions – How Did I Do?

wwepayback

We are just under a week removed from a wildly spontaneous and interesting June WWE pay-per-view event in Payback. So, as I always like to do, it’s time to look at just how well I was able to guess the results of the match. For those curious this will differ from Brian’s post in that I will be specifically recapping how my pre-show predictions match up to the results and assigning a score passed on that.

 
WWE Championship – Three Stages of Hell Match: John Cena (c) def. Ryback 2 falls to 1. I correctly guessed that result for a point in my favor.

 
World Heavyweight Championship: Alberto Del Rio def Dolph Ziggler (c) to win the title. I did not see this one coming I was hoping Ziggler wasn’t going to be a transitional champion. No points.

 
Intercontinental Championship – Triple Threat Match: Curtis Axel def The Miz & Wade Barrett (c) to win the title in what was considered a forgone conclusion by all commentators, including me. 1 point.

 
WWE United States Championship: Dean Ambrose (c) def. Kane by Countout. I correctly predicted this result for another point.

 
WWE Tag Team Championship: The Shield (Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) (c) def. Randy Orton & Daniel Bryan. This was another no-brainer to pick as the Shield are completely dominant at the moment. 1 point.

 
WWE Divas Championship: AJ Lee def. Kaitlyn (c). Who didn’t see Aj winning? I certainly thought she would. 1 point.

 
Singles Match: CM Punk def. Chris Jericho. Punk winning…in Chicago, another forgone conclusion. 1 point.

 
Pre-Show Match: Sheamus def. Damien Sandow. I don’t where they are heading with this, all I know is I called it for Sheamus. 1 point.

 
I did much better on predicting this event than the TNA Slammiversary event for a score of 7/8 or 87%. Combined with the Slammiversary event my total now stands at 10/17 or 52%. Let’s hope I can crawl past average with next month’s Money in the Bank event.
