A video of the encounter, which shows the young Mendez being brought to tears by the meeting, has surfaced on YouTube.

WWE Survivor Series 2014 Predictions

20141103_EP_LIGHT_SurvivorSeries_AJ_Nikki_HP

AJ Lee vs. Nikki Bella

           Even I’m tired of seeing AJ Lee as the champion, I think AJ Lee will retained her Divas Championship against Nikki Bella. With or without Brie Bella‘s interference, AJ Lee will still be the champion.

Damien Mizdow vs. Stardust & Goldust vs. Los Matadores vs. The Usos

           I’m such a huge fan of The Usos and I want them to win so bad and I like Cody Rhodes not Stardust to win, of course with his brother. But I’m rooting for Damien Mizdow to win, I think it’s time for them to steal the spotlight. But if Goldust and Stardust wins, it is maybe by cheating.

20141103_EP_LIGHT_SurvivorSeries_Match_NattyAliciaNaomiEmma_PaigeCameronSummerLayla_HP

 Team Natalya, Alicia Fox, Naomi, Emma vs. Team Paige, Cameron, Summer Rae, Layla

           Honestly, when I see only 8 divas in this match, I’m disappointed. Why don’t WWE let Eva Marie and Rosa Mendes wrestle with them? They’ve been getting a lesser spotlight recently in the ring. By the way, in this match I think Team Natalya, Alicia Fox, Naomi, Emma will win this traditional elimination match, of course by Alicia Fox putting the win on her team.

20141110_EP_LIGHT_SS_WyattVambrose-HOME

Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt

          I like these 2 wrestlers, this is what business all about. I like Dean Ambrose for playing a bit crazy and I like Bray Wyatt  for playing crazier. But as long as I want Dean Ambrose to win, Bray Wyatt for what I predict.

 20141117_EP_LIGHT_SurvivorSeries_Match_CenaAuthority_HP2

Team Cena vs. Team Authority

           This match will be sick and this match will make history. I think Team Authority will win this match maybe because of Triple H cheating. You can’t blame the Authority, they always wanna win.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Predictions

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC__HOME_tag2_logos

The Usos vs. Gold & Stardust

           I always bet for the Usos to win ’cause I like them, they’re a total perfomers on the ring. But what I think is going to happen is that Team Gold & Stardust ill win this match, maybe by cheating as always.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_AJ_PAIGE_HOME

AJ Lee vs Paige

         Let me be honest with all of my readers, I’m actually tired of seeing these 2 faces again and again from previous pay-per-views. I want a new contender for the Divas Championship match or I want a new Divas Champion. WWE is missing other dominant divas like Natalya and Tamina snuka. But for my prediction for this match, I think AJ Lee will retained the title even Alicia Fox interferes the match.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Ambrose_Rollins_HOME

          Dean Ambrose vs. Seth rollins

            Dean Ambrose is my favorite crazy- played wrestlers. And I don’t like Seth Rollins since he left The Shield. So obviously, I’m betting for Dean Ambrose to win, and I think he will win this time.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Bire_Nikki_HOME

   Brie Bella vs. Nikki Bella

         This is the fakest storyline I have watched on WWE. Both Bella‘s have a worst acting, you can tell it too Nikki‘s voice sound and Brie‘s facial expression. Yeah I know, it was all just acting thing, but all I’m saying is that, they are not good actress’. But in this match, I think Brie Bella will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Cena_Orton_HOME

John Cena vs Randy Orton

           I’m one of the WWE viewers who are complaining about these 2 wrestlers who always have spotlight on the show. There are many superstars on the locker room, why are they always giving these 2 the spotlight? We all know that they are already popular and what’s best for business. But it is time to give the spotlight to others. But in this match, I think John Cena will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Smaus_Miz_HOME

Sheamus vs. The Miz

          These are 2 of my favorite wrestlers. It’s hard to see any one to lose but this must have to happen. As for Sheamus losing the spotlight these days and The Miz having the spotlight, I think, the Miz will win this match.

20141023_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Show-Russev_HOME

Big Show vs. Rusev

           I’m always excited when Rusev stepped in the ring. Every match he made in pay-per-view was awesome and this time against the Big Show, will be the “awesomest” match between USA and Russia. But I think, it’s time for USA to win, so Big Show for the win.
