Stomping Grounds, formerly known as Backlash (wonder why WWE don’t want Backlash this year), a Pay Per View that is built up from mainly Wrestlemania, Money in the Bank or Super ShowDown rematches with a couple of new matches to try to make it seem less noticeable. In this article, we will be detailing the current betting odds for WWE Stomping Grounds as well as who is likely to win each match. As always please remember to gamble responsibly.

New Day vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

A match that has been flung together after 2 matches on Raw and Smackdown this week both of which being 2 out of 3 falls matches and this one is, you guessed it, a regular tag team match. As this match has come about with little to no build it’s tough to say who will win this match with the bookies giving odds of 5/6 for both teams. If WWE are planning a breakup of the New Day then it would be smart to have Big E and Xavier Woods lose here with Kofi winning later to create a rift in the group by having Kofi keep winning and Big E and Woods keep losing. It could also be smart to have Owens and Zayn win to show them as a formidable tag team to potentially challenge for the tag titles later down the line. With this in mind, we predict that Owens and Zayn will win, likely on the preshow. Owens and Zayn to win 5/6

Cruiserweight Title: Tony Nese vs Drew Gulak vs Akira Tozawa

A multi-man match for the Cruiserweight Championship between Nese Gulak and Tozawa should make for a high paced and fun match. Tony Nese has been champion since defeating Buddy Murphy at Wrestlemania and hasn’t shown any signs of stopping. This match will almost certainly be on the pre-show as they apparently don’t care about the Cruiserweights. The fact it is a Triple Threat match could be there so Nese wouldn’t have to take a pin while still looking strong. While the bookies are heavily favouring Tony Nese at 2/5 we believe that the finish of the match will see Nese hit Tozawa with a move from the top rope only to be thrown out of the ring with Gulak stealing the win. Drew Gulak to win 4/1

US Title: Samoa Joe vs Ricochet

Ricochet outlasted Cesaro, The Miz, Bobby Lashley, and Braun Strowman on Raw to earn a match against Samoa Joe for the United States Championship. This match has the potential to steal the show as it is one of the few matches that we haven’t seen in WWE on a Pay Per View yet. If WWE wants to make a big change at this PPV this may be the match where it happens but if they gave the US title to Ricochet that would derail all of Joe’s momentum. Since Rey Mysterio is set to return in a few weeks we, unfortunately, see this match as a placeholder until Rey gets back so they can continue their feud for the US Title. Samoa Joe to win 4/11

Smackdown Tag Team Titles: Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs Heavy Machinery

Here we have a Champion vs Champion match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship. We see the Smackdown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan and Rowan defending their titles against the YOLO County Tag Team Champions Heavy Machinery. There are very few tag teams on Smackdown that can be viable challengers for Bryan and Rowan at this stage, New Day are currently busy with the WWE championship, Owens and Zayn are still mainly singles competitors and on different brands and The B Team are the B Team. This is why Heavy Machinery should win the Smackdown Tag Team Championship. They SHOULD win but we can’t see Vince looking at Tucker and Otis and thinking Championship material. At this point they really should just combine the Tag divisions but since the brand split is still a thing apparently this won’t happen for a long time. Daniel Bryan and Rowan to win 2/7

Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre

There is no shame in losing someone who is the best. Roman Reigns took his first pin since returning from battling cancer at the hands of The Best in The Wooooooooooooorld, Shane McMahon. Yeah, there might have been a tiny bit of assistance from Drew McIntyre but Roman has now taken his first pin but will Drew provide his second? It’s possible there could be some interference from Shanes new stable, maybe a distraction from the Revival? We feel that this is building to a match between Roman and Shane at Summerslam so in order to make it seem like Roman has a chance at beating the best in the world we regrettably have to think he will go over Drew. After all, he already beat Drew at Wrestlemania so since this is a rematch, chances are it’ll have the same result. Roman Reigns to win 4/5

Smackdown Womens Title: Bayley vs Alexa Bliss

Bayley is most likely going to win this as we can’t see how having a Raw superstar being a Smackdown Champion would work. While it worked for Becky being a double champ and the wildcard rule being in effect that sees a maximum of 4 people able to switch brands at a time (the moment on Raw when Kevin Owens starts counting how many people are wildcards was amazing). If Bliss wins potentially with the help of Nikki Cross this could answer the question of what would happen if a wrestler won a title on another brand. As long as this match is better than their match in 2017 where Bayley didn’t understand how to use a Kendo Stick then I’ll consider it a win. With all this to consider we can see Bayley retaining her title. Bayley to win 1/6

Raw Womens Title: Becky Lynch vs Lacey Evans

Lacey Evans is getting better and better on the Mic every week as Becky is still a strong a champion as ever. This is a pretty difficult match to call as Lacey seems to be being pushed hard but if she loses then she’ll have lost to Becky twice in a row but if she wins then she’ll be champion very early into her run dethroning one of the most popular Women’s Champions in history. We feel that this feud will continue beyond this PPV, possibly to Summerslam and we believe it has the legs to make the distance but we just can’t see Lacey winning the title just yet. If Lacey did win then it would most likely be via shenanigans, potentially a Charlotte run in to have a match between Charlotte and Becky at the next PPV to build other women in the break between now and Summerslam. That Being said we still don’t see Becky dropping the title anytime soon. Becky to win 2/7

WWE Title: Steel Cage Match Kofi Kingston vs Dolph Ziggler

This match will likely be the longest match on the card but the wrestlers involved will make the match a spectacle. Kofi is likely to retain his WWE Championship in this match but where would he go from here? If the New Day break up at Stomping Grounds this could see Big E turn on Kofi and help his old friend in Dolph Ziggler to become WWE Champion for the first time in his career. Whoever takes the title off of Kofi will have nuclear heat but we just can’t see it being Ziggler. We believe that Kofi will retain his title, potentially doing a trust fall from the top of the cage. Kofi to win 1/12

Universal Title: Seth Rollins vs Baron Corbin

This match will feature a Special Guest Referee who at this time has yet to be announced. Seth Rollins has been attacking anyone who has been a possible referee leaving Corbin unable to coerce anyone by the time Smackdown ended. When you think about it the best special guest referee we’ve had in some time has been Curt Hawkins who isn’t currently doing anything on the card. There is a high possibility that the referee could be Brock Lesnar or Paul Heyman to have the entire match focus on the potential cash in. Even with these possibilities, we see Seth Rollins winning the match to retain his Universal Championship against nobodies favourite son Baron Corbin. Rollins to win 1/8
