Welcome to the first ever WWE PPV preview with The Hart Twins, Ace and Jack. Enjoy as we just take you through a back and forth chat with two twin brothers who love the WWE and can’t wait for this Sunday. Real basic set-up, we’ll be running through each match-up and giving you our opinions and predictions as we see fit. So let’s get to it!
Sin Cara vs Chavo Guerrero
Jack Hart: I don’t really see a point to talking about this match too much for a couple reasons. Firstly it’s currently just rumored and secondly we know who is winning. The one thing I’ll say is how surprised I am that this is already on PPV. I expected a few more weeks of build and then a PPV match. I guess any feud with Chavo feels weird because I don’t expect him to win any matches. I expect a good exciting match and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if this match opened the show. Sin Cara obviously has a style that excites the fans, so it could get the crowd going. Plus I enjoy seeing Chavo on a PPV. His last PPV match, besides the Royal Rumble, was a 2 on 1 Hog Pen match against Santino Marella with his aunt Vickie Guerrero. Two years later here we are. Go Chavo.
Ace Hart: Yeah no kidding, I must say that I was absolutely shocked to see Chavo back on television, as I had just assumed he has taken more of a backstage position on the WWE Creative team or something similar. I’m with you as well, I would have rather they held off on this match a few weeks and had Chavo start off as his actual manager to give a voice behind Sin Cara, considering he currently has none. I don’t believe there’s a better low-midcard wrestler (currently on the roster) more fit to put over Sin Cara. Should be fun, if like you say Jack, it actually happens.
Jack Hart: To sum it up I’m picking… Sin Cara! Yes shocking I know.
Ace Hart: Haha, I’m gonna have to agree with you on that. Sin Cara over Chavo Guerrero following a flipping rock bottom off the top rope that you can see being set up a mile away.
Ace Hart Prediction: Sin Cara By Pinfall
Jack Hart Prediction: Sin Cara By Pinfall
A Bella Twin vs Kelly Kelly
Ace Hart: Should we even preview the potential women’s match?
Jack Hart: My prediction is Kharma comes out and beats up a woman
Jack Hart: really any woman. She may even grab a woman out of the audience
Ace Hart: Kharma? I don’t know who this Kharma is that you speak of… If only WWE had done a better job of having her on TV every week, maybe I would…
Editor’s Note: As we were typing and watching Smackdown, a match between whichever Bella holds the title and Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly was announced. This does not mean that we will be talking anymore about it. Moving on…
R-Truth vs Rey Mysterio
Jack Hart: I’m shocked for how much I’m looking forward to this match considering how small the build has been. I think that just goes to show how interesting the heel character of R-Truth has been this last month or so. I couldn’t care less about him when he was a face and I saw him stuck in the midcard forever, but now he’s becoming someone I would love to see in the World title picture. Plus having him face Mysterio, one of the most beloved superstars in the WWE, makes it even easier for the fans to hate Truth.
Ace Hart: I used to think that the next match-up I wanted to see for Cena’s WWE Title was Alberto Del Rio (who is nowhere to be found in this PPV after his World Heavyweight Championship loss last month as Extreme Rules.), but I must say that I hope Truth is up next for a title shot. He’s been ruthless the last few weeks and I’m entertained every time he’s on television, whether it’s in a match or just cutting a promo. I’m completely positive Truth is going to win here, because he absolutely deserves this push. He’s been given a lot of room for creativity the last few weeks and I believe he’s exceeding the expectations that were set for him when his Heel turn came about.
Ace Hart: My prediction is that Truth will find some way to win, possibly by cheating. I believe he’ll do whatever is necessary to win and insert himself into the upper echelon of WWE. And in the off chance he doesn’t win, you better believe Rey is going to receive the beating of a lifetime. And that’s the Truth! (Get it?)
Ace Hart: Cause his name is R-Truth
Ace Hart: And it’s a part of his catchphrase… And stuff…
Jack Hart: The one question I have here is what is Truth’s offense going to look like as a heel? I’d imagine we’re going to see a more aggressive style from him, especially considering his opponent is an excellent seller of moves. We’ll see Mysterio start off quickly and then a slower, more methodical type offense from Truth to ground Mysterio. I’m going with Mysterio to win here, but only by disqualification. No way is Mysterio the winner any other way.
Ace Hart Prediction: R-Truth By Pinfall
Jack Hart Prediction: Rey Mysterio By DQ
- Wade Barrett vs Ezekiel Jackson
Ace Hart: I’ve made it pretty clear in my Weekly Rankings, that I am not a huge fan of where the Corre has gone in the last few months. Almost as much of a laughingstock as the “Apple” stable, they have somehow managed to win multiple titles during their run together, while doing nothing but burying the titles and men themselves. I give major kudos to Zeke that he has managed to separate himself from the group and perhaps we’ll see more lines of separation at Over the Limit for the Corre. At least we’ll see some significance towards the Intercontinental Title, which hasn’t been defended on a PPV since Wade Barrett won it, and to be honest I can’t even remember when it was last defended by anyone at a PPV and personally i haven’t cared and i blame that on the WWE creative team.
Jack Hart: Heck Wade didn’t even win it at a PPV. It’s hard to care about the Intercontinental title when no one else appears to. I couldn’t really care less about this match, beyond the fact that I’m a big fan of Wade Barrett. I’d much rather see Daniel Bryan fighting for the title here, but for some reason the WWE decided it was time to turn Jackson face. Ok fine. I’m going with Jackson to win here. Sorry should I be calling him Zeke? I don’t care. Maybe Zeke will become a main event player for years to come, but I don’t really see it at this point. I’m guessing Barrett losing the title here leads to a further split of the Corre. If you remember, Heath Slater was the one who suggested Barrett defend his title in this match. Maybe Barrett tries to get Gabriel to help him beat down Slater, but he refuses and they turn on him. Barrett moves on to a bigger better solo career and Gabriel and Slater continue as a tag team, and the WWE tries to figure out where they went wrong.
Ace Hart: Yeah, you have to call him Zeke, because we’re on a first name basis now. Kind of best friends really. Any opportunity for The Corre to end their run of mediocrity is a plus as far as I’m concerned. End the Corre and start Zeke (my BFF) on his epic 1 and a half month title reign.
Ace Hart Prediction: Ezekiel Jackson by Pinfall
Jack Hart Prediction: Ezekiel Jackson by Pinfall
Big Show & Kane vs CM Punk & Mason Ryan
Jack Hart: This next match gives me a good chance to plug my article on tag team wrestling which you can read about right here. It’s quite excellent. Trust me, my mom said so. Anyway this match feels oddly familiar. The Tag Team Champions Kane and Big Show defending their titles against two members of a faction. How original. CM Punk is one of my personal favorites in the WWE, but I feel like the focus will be put on Mason Ryan in this match who is rumored to be turning face in almost identical fashion as Ezekiel Jackson did with the Corre. I don’t see Kane and the Big Show losing the titles here, but I could be wrong. I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing CM Punk with some gold around his waist.
Ace Hart: I’m with you on CM Punk, he looks great in some gold or whatever weird color the tag titles are. If WWE wants this match to be anywhere near watchable we need to see a steady dose of Punk, but to be honest, I can’t imagine we’ll see much from this match at all. After putting CM Punk #1 on my rankings this week, I have the utmost confidence that WWE now may know what direction they have for Punk. As far as this match goes, I think you’re right, we’re at another moment where they show how powerful Mason Ryan is because he can beat Kane and Big Show. You know who else has beaten those two? Almost everyone on the roster. Big Show and Jericho were better…
Jack Hart: Don’t bring up Jericho to me… You know it hurts too much. I think Ryan gets a ton of offense in, and then Punk tags himself him to show Ryan he’s the leader of this group which leads to Punk taking the double chokeslam for the win. The goal of this match will probably be to create further tension between Ryan and the rest of Nexus. On a side note, break up Nexus, move Mcgillicutty to Smackdown, shoot Otunga into space with only enough gas to get to the moon, and move CM Punk into the World title scene. Good talk.
Ace Hart: I wouldn’t even say we have to shoot Otunga into space on an actual ship, why waste the money? If he can’t learn how to breathe in space, then he doesn’t deserve to at all, we can’t coddle him forever. That sounds like a perfect ending to me. Except for the fact that Punk and Ryan are going to win this match, thank goodness because I was worried we wouldn’t get enough Mason Ryan time on television…
Ace Hart Prediction: Punk and Ryan win after interference by Nexus. Or New Nexus, whatever.
Jack Hart Prediction: Big Show and Kane retain by Pinfall.
Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole
Ace Hart: Sigh… wasn’t this feud supposed to be blown off at Wrestlemania when they got 15+ minutes for a match involving two non-wrestlers? I could go on and on about how little I care about this match but I’ll try to review this tactfully…
Ace Hart: Ok…
Ace Hart: Here we go…
Ace Hart: Yeah this isn’t working, Jack can you take over from here?
Jack Hart: I think Jerry “The King” Lawler is going to win. If you want anything more, go read an article on another site.
Ace Hart: Yeah exactly. What he said.
Jack Hart: Oh I have one thing to add. Hopefully this is the beginning of Jack Swaggers face turn. All right, now I’m done.
Ace Hart Prediction: Michael Cole spontaneously combustes.
Jack Hart Prediction: Jerry Lawler wins… After Michael Cole spontaneously combustes.
Randy Orton vs Christian
Jack Hart: Before we begin I just want to clarify, I am excited for this match. If it’s anything like their match on Smackdown a few weeks ago it will be another gem. However this has been kind of a dull lead in to a match. I’m fine with two faces competing because they can, and their slow rescues of one another on Smackdown actually brought a little animosity to this match, but at the end there was no anger as they stood triumphant next to one another. For the love of everything holy, give the man an RKO to end the show. But for once I do believe the WWE has a plan here. It looks like one of these men will be turning heel and the WWE is doing a great job at keeping us guessing who that might be. It looked like Christian would be turning and now it looks like Orton to me. This feud has a very fresh feel to it.
Ace Hart: Took most of the words right out of my mouth. I honestly must say that I’m very excited for this match and have been looking forward to it since the title changed hands at Smackdown earlier this month. Orton and Christian showed great in-ring chemistry and I hope we’re looking at a legitimate feud, not just Christian’s last shot at the title for a while. They’re both obviously over huge with the WWE Universe and I can only imagine they’ll be tons of pops during this match for both wrestlers, which is what made their first match so special. I hope they get as much time as they want, because they need to make this match good to outdo the one on Smackdown.
Jack Hart: Oh this definitely has to be the beginning of something big. I’ve got a fatal four way next month for the title with Mark Henry and Sheamus involved. This feud has enough sparks to push it all the way to Summerslam as long as the creative team doesn’t rush it and screw it up. This feud has a similar feel to it that the Jeff Hardy CM Punk feud had a few years ago, which was great because they took their time and let the story play out. Let this feud do the same thing. I really want Christian to win the title back here, but it’s not the right time for it. Orton retains in a match that has some pretty hefty expectations.
Jack Hart: And just as a warning, this match will be good, but it won’t outdo their previous title match on Smackdown. You’ve been warned
Ace Hart: Well thanks a lot Jack. Way to kill the mood. I’ve got Orton over Christian which will no doubt further infuriate the IWC, but let’s think long term here people. P.S. all hate email should be sent straight to Jack Hart. You’re welcome.
Jack Hart: Jokes on you. I don’t use email, I use carrier pigeon.
Ace Hart Prediction: Orton wins by Pinfall

John Cena vs The Miz
Ace Hart: Awesome! Since I am HUGE MizFit, I am very excited for another main event for the former WWE Champion. I know he has exactly a 0.01 percent chance of winning, but that’s not even the most important factor for Miz in this match. I Quit matches are an amazing opportunity for both men to look great and I’m excited to see what Miz is going to pull out of his hat for this one. Since it’s the Miz we know everything he’s apart of is awesome, right Jack?
Jack Hart: This is definitely the match I am most looking forward to. Everyone has said it, but I’m just gonna repeat and say it’s incredible to see how far The Miz has come. When he first was drafted over to Raw and had his mini feud with Cena, he was buried any time he faced him. Now he actually has a win over him at Wrestlemania. He’s a big deal. I’m curious if an I Quit match will become a staple of the poorly named Over the Limit PPV. Last year Cena beat Batista at Over the Limit with the exact same stipulation and this year he will… lose to the Miz! (stunned silence) Yes I’m picking the Miz here. I had Cena picked to win this match up until the promo Miz gave on Raw talking about all the different ways he can make Cena say I Quit. I think Miz might try and put a “fan” in harms way in order to make Cena say I Quit. Sort of a hostage situation. We’ve seen the Corporation threaten to hurt Chyna in order to get HHH to quit, but I don’t believe we’ve ever seen a superstar threaten a fan in this type of a match. Obviously the audience member would be a plant. Vince doesn’t want a lawsuit on his hands.
Ace Hart: Wow, thats the first I’ve heard of something like that. It’s actually really brilliant and I would love to see it. But overal I thinkl we’re looking at the first PPV Defense of a long title reign with John Cena. You almost had me there for a second Jack, but I’m not going to get my hopes up for the most must see WWE Champion to regain back the title that so rightfully belongs to him. If only. We are living in his moment Jack. His moment…
Jack Hart: haha. I just don’t see who Cena feuds with next if he’s set to feud with Alberto Del Rio at Summerslam. I think Cena wins it back next month, but Miz wins it here. It’s bold, but if I’m right I can shove it in your face for a very long time and that is truly Awesome.
Jack Hart: I didn’t think I was very excited for this PPV and after writing about it I’ve decided that I am really not excited for this PPV save the two world title matches. Beyond that this looks like another Raw or Smackdown show. Hopefully they prove me wrong, but I just don’t see it.
Ace Hart: If you were paying attention to me earlier I stated that R-Truth will be the next challenger for the title. Or something like that, I don’t know it was a long time ago. I think I’m a little more excited about this PPV than you are, but I have to agree with you. I know I wasn’t looking forward to Extreme Rules either, but at least that had all of the Gimmick matches to bail it out just in case. I expect very little buys for this event but hopefully we’ll be pleasantly surprised.
