The pre-show kickoff is going to feature Daniel Bryan in the role they brought Hulk Hogan back for: promoting how awesome the WWE Network is. Bryan's been out with a neck injury since shortly after winning the belts at WrestleMania. I'm thinking he just talks about how amazing the Network is, tells everyone he can't wait to get back, and says keep a close eye on Money in the Bank, teasing his return... that won't happen.

I predict they'll announce Barrett as being out and have the replacement's music surprise the crowd, which will either be The Miz or Lesnar. Rollins and Ambrose keep each other busy, blocking the other from winning numerous times, until either one of the former Shield members pulls down the briefcase for Lesnar if he's in the match. Between Rollins and Ambrose, I'll take Rollins for this.

Winner: Rollins

Big E vs. Rusev

In the second WWE battle between America and Russia, I think it's about time Big E got a win. He was slated to be one of the top-level superstars and then completely fell off. They're wanting Rusev to be a major character, but every superstar, no matter the sport, experiences adversity. It's time Rusev gets beat down for one match.

Winner: Big E

WWE is saving the Usos for Ascension, using the excitement the two teams put into their matches to catapult the tag division to another level. The Wyatts are building towards unseen dominance, but none of them will walk out tonight with the gold.

Vince McMahon has lost most if not all of his faith in Paige, but Triple H still believes in her. It's great to see a talent like Naomi get another championship opportunity after getting injured before WrestleMania, spurring the free for all match that we saw. I could see them having Naomi win so that Cameron turns on her in an effort to win the belt, but Paige is being built up too much to lose now.

Winner: Paige

This is a complete throwaway match, made all the more so with the rumors that this may end up being a dance-off. Fandango only joined up with Layla because Summer was off shooting Marine 4 and they needed something to do with him, leading me to believe he's going to ditch his latest fling and go back after Summer Rae.

Winner: Summer Rae

Rybaxel has experienced quite a bit of success in the last few weeks, getting more wins under their belts than they likely had in the rest of the year. The problem with that momentum going into this match? StarDust. The fans have gone loopy over the new iteration of Cody Rhodes, which makes me think there's no chance the Dust Brothers lose here.

Winner: The Dust Brothers

While I want so badly to see Roman Reigns win this, there's little to no chance they put the gold on him this early in his push. Cesaro is an outside candidate with the chance of facing Lesnar at SummerSlam as a Heyman family feud. Orton killed his chances with his Smackdown moment, which leaves the obvious choice: Cena. Everyone now knows Cena/Lesnar is tenativley planned for SummerSlam, so here's to another Super Cena win.

Winner: John Cena
