Source: WWEWWE recently spoke to several Superstars about their predictions on some of the top matches at Sunday's TLC pay-per-view. Here are a few highlights:
Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena
Layla: This will be a tough, tough fight, but my money's on Dolph. It's his time, and he deserves it, too. He's worked so, so hard. Love him or hate him, he really is a showoff, but he has a lot to show off about. I think that's going to be a shocker, the jaw-dropper of the night, big time.
Road Dogg: I think this match favors Dolph. He kind of reminds me of my former partner, Billy Gunn, in that he is just a pure athlete. I'm not saying John Cena's old, but he's no spring chicken, and when it comes to climbing a ladder, my vote's got to go with the pure athlete, and that's Dolph Ziggler. It might just be time for The Showoff.
Tyson Kidd: Dolph has won over so many fans these last few years, and it sounds a little cliché, but in this one, it seems like it's a different side of Cena we haven't seen in a while, where he's fighting more with his heart than his mind. That could cost him. I think this is Dolph's chance to show he is where he really belongs, and I think Dolph comes away with the win this time.
Ryback, Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose
Wade Barrett: Team Hell No & Ryback is a formidable team, [and] they've all got their individual strengths. Obviously, experience is on the side of Kane, Daniel Bryan's an incredible technician, and you have the power of Ryback. And then you've got The Shield, who are kind of an unknown entity.
I really empathize with the position The Shield are in because I was in a similar position when I was leading Nexus in 2010 in the main event of SummerSlam, when we were taking on the WWE veterans. Unfortunately, on that occasion, it didn't end well for us. I hope for the sake of The Shield they do a little better. I'm certainly pulling for The Shield, but if I'm honest, I think Team Hell No & Ryback got 'em beat.
Michael McGillicutty: I've got to go with The Shield. Those guys are a cohesive unit, and that's what it takes to get victories here in WWE. Take a look at Team Hell No. Talk about a bunch of weirdoes, man. They don't care about anything but themselves and who's going to get the pinfall in a contest. Then you've got Ryback, and I still ain't believing his hype. The win's going to go to The Shield, bottom line.
