Yeah, gotta be Punk here. This is REALLY what everyone is paying to see.

Gotta be the Lucha Bros. here. In fact, I’ll be pissed if it isn’t. I think I’ve said this here before, but the Bucks whole gimmick since turning heel has been “We outsmart everyone and we get outside interference!” Then, the final Dynamite before they PPV, they pin Fenix clean and have the Elite kick the shit out of them for the mega heat segment. To not pay they off with the Lucha Bros winning in a cage match would be slopppy storytelling. It would be NWO/WCW storytelling. If they indeed want to give it to Santana and Ortiz in NY, then at least have the Lucha Bros look good in the go-home show. Or just have the Lucha Bros drop in to S & O to further the Pac/Andrade storyline.

I think I read that the Britt/Thunder Rosa rematch isn’t coming until 2022. They seem to be giving Conti a lot of airtime. So maybe her?

Also, I figure the surprise will either be Ruby or Sasha. Sasha should appear at some point, given how much Miro talks about his “hot wife.0

I can go either way on this. The match really shouldn’t be happening. I think the better move would have been after Jericho loses, Sammy come in to take up the mantle and go over MJF. It’ll probably be Jericho, but I prefer MJF wins. I actually like Y2K a lot as a commentator. He’s got a great future as a heel color guy.

I’ll be okay with this if it ends with Agogo coming back and knocking Wight out.

I’ve heard Danielson might be there. Cole would be good too. I’ve also heard Flair. We’ll see.
