Schrodt's WWE Payback predictions!

I tried this out Wrestlemania XXX and it went well, then tried again with Extreme Rules and people responded positively.  So, for the third WWE pay-per-view in a row, I’m offering up my predictions!  This Sunday’s Payback comes to you live from Rosemont, IL—a place I’m very familiar with (the arena is just a short drive from where Wizard World Chicago takes place every August).  I actually considered buying tickets for this show, but ultimately passed.  None of this information is important.  On with the predictions! (and don't forget about the Dear Dinosaur campaign on Kickstarter!)

Dear Dinosaur - Behind the Scenes: Volume V Cover

This week's all new Dear Dinosaur (the second to last ever), I'll be showcasing the cover for volume five.  Since I had already done two comic covers (I = X-Men, IV = Evil Kineval), two movie posters (II = Pulp Fiction, Complete = Star Wars), and only one album cover (III = Abbey Road), I wanted to do another album cover this time around.  I've been toying with this idea for months and even did poling on Facebook and Twitter.  Below are 9 potential options I came up with.  Which is your favorite?

Schrodt's WWE Extreme Rules predictions!

While I mostly use this website to promote my comic work and offer my thoughts on written things (like my Top 10 posts), I did get pretty solid traffic on my Wrestlemania 30 predictions.  Now that I have the WWE Network and can readily watch the monthly pay-per-views, I’ll most m predictions.  There is a healthy crossover of WWE and comics fans, so hopefully y’all don’t mind.  We’ll try it this month with Extreme Rules and then you can tell me if you totally hate it.
