Kevin Owens (c) vs. Ryback
Intercontinental Championship Match
Owens needs the win, but I’m not sure Ryback can take a clean loss. That tells me that Ryback loses this one with some sort of distraction or interference from whoever he’s set to feud with next. The catch? It can’t be seen as a step down from feuding with Owens.
The better bet, from my perspective, is a cheap win for Owens, leading to one, big stipulation blowoff match.
If I booked it: Owens walks out, to avoid a sure-thing Ryback win. Blowoff match comes in the form of… a cage match? A lumberjack match? Shit, I forgot that these gimmick matches don’t mean anything in 2015. Maybe a crazy falls count anywhere match would be fun.
