Here's what I think
will go down at NOC 2013:
Miz vs. Fandango
Was pretty obvious that WWE was teasing a silly squat between them.
2 on 3 Handicap Match:
Mark Henry & Big Show (w. RVD) vs. The Shield
Just as what was the plan for Summerslam, but then a ppv later. With RVD managing them.
Grudge Match (perhaps with MITB briefcase on the line)
Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow
Round 2 in the story of Rhodes and Sandow. Given it is a champions ppv theme, the match could be made more interesting by putting the case on the line and the winner walks out the venue with the MITB briefcase.
Ziggler vs. Big E. Langston
This match-up would only be if WWE were to continue in this direction. Just to put Ziggler completely over as the babyface. If they don't go into this direction I would let him be figured in the World Title picture.
Singles Match for the Diva's Championship
AJ Lee vs. Natalya
This match is purely because Natalya beat one of the diva's division 'Face of the company'. And to give AJ another PPV victory.
Total Diva's Tag Match
The Bella's vs. The Funkadactyls
It speaks for itself. A match to promote the show.
Grudge Match (perhaps with IC Title on the line)
CM Punk vs. Curtis Axel
After Summerslam, Brock will be gone untill 'Mania. That is a given. But what next for Punk? Well, we'll build on the promo he stated on Heyman. "I'll kick everybody that stands between you and me!" And given Axel is a 'Heyman Guy', we have a reason to put Axel on a PPV.
Singles Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian
To continue this poorly builded squabble. Christian gets a new opportunity and 'One more match'.
*note that I said, Ziggler could be added in this match.
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Wade Barrett
This match intrigues me. It could turn out to be a simple singles match too.
This is pure speculation, as I have no idea what the HHH/Bryan/Orton angle will lead to. But let me at least explain why I chose Barrett to be placed here.
Barrett can be used in the angle for a few reasons:
- He has history with both men. History with Bryan through 'The Nexus', also in 2011 with the MITB briefcase squabble and more recently with the McMahon make-over skit. History with Orton as he has unfinished business after their 2011-2012 feud (start of the Barrett Barrage, which could be used as a re-emergence of the Barrage)
- As said in 1., it would re-ignite the Barrett Barrage
- He currently has nothing to do and is stirring himself lost in the mid-card.
- Barrett has the look, physique and the mic skills to be used as a good Main-Event heel.
