Tonight is the night WWE goes extreme… or less PG than usual. Either way, it’s usually a good PPV and I am certainly look forward to. But, I hear you ask, who does Wrestlebitch think will be victorious? Well, luckily for you I’ve looked deep into Cody Rhodes’ crystal balls and here is what I saw.
Layla vs Michelle McCool – Loser Leaves WWE
The internet may have pretty much ruined this match. It’s been rumoured for a while that Michelle McCool wishes to leave WWE. It’s fair enough, she recently got married and, although internet rumours are never 100%, she wants to spend time with ‘Taker as he gets over his injuries. It does worry me what will happen to Layla. She’s not particularly strong in terms of wrestling skills. I imagine she may be some sort of partner to Kharma (Awesome Kong) when she arrives.
Speaking of which, everyone is wondering if Kharma will debut tonight at Extreme Rules. I find it difficult to believe as it’d mean that she’d be going after Layla but let’s think about it logically. Could it be possible that WWE might surprise us? Who are we to say that they haven’t planted the rumour themselves? After all, Kharma’s promos are all about Barbie-looking blondes.
So I’m going to go bold and say that Michelle McCool will win this!
Jerry Lawler & JR vs Michael Cole & Jack Swagger – Country Whipping Match
I anticipate this match is going to be painful and I don’t mean for those taking part. I’m a huge fan of all parties involved and it’s a great feud but I have a feeling that this match will drag on longer than it needs to.
I also reckon it’ll be Lawler/Swagger heavy as they are the two wrestlers in this mix but I really want to see good ole JR take it to Cole. I just hope JRs hand doesn’t cause him too much bother in this whole thing. Either way, it should make for an interesting match and it’ll be extremely interesting to see where the storyline will lead to if it does end.
My prediction? Jerry Lawler & JR will be Country Winnin’.
Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes (Falls Count Anywhere)
This has to be the first Rey Mysterio match in a long time where I’m genuinely excited to see it. I think the Wrestlemania match was just
a warm-up and both men will go all out as this wonderful feud comes to an end. They’ve spent months brilliantly building this up and it has to be one of the most exciting parts of Smackdown recently.
I predict we’ll see these two fight it out in the stands, brawling backstage and they’ll give it their all.
But, if wrestling formula works, it’ll be Rhodes who loses out tonight. I forsee the end the feud and the end to Rhodes wearing the mask. I hope not as his Phantom-esque persona is really working for him.
Either way, I’m predicting Rey Mysterio picks up the win.
Randy Orton vs CM Punk (Last Man Standing)
It’s clear that this has been a case of Randy Boreton making us all go to sleep recently but with Smackdown fire in his belly and Punk’s eagerness to impress, this should actually make for a good match. It’s clear that the deciding factor here will be the role that New Nexus are going to play in this match which I think will be interesting. I think that the New Nexus hasn’t quite worked out how WWE hoped and let’s face it, it’s kinda lame. The Corre are failing over on Smackdown too so why not have The Corre take on New Nexus?
I guess we’ll have to see how that plays out.
Either way, I’m going for a Randy Orton win.
Christian vs Alberto Del Rio (Ladder Match for WHC)
Interestingly enough this is one of only two championship matches. It’s clear that WWE need to start pushing their belts a bit more. Either way, this should be a fantastic match due to all the emotional angles involved surrounding Edge. It’ll be interesting to see how this one is going to play out and it is quite hard to predict. One can assume that Del Rio will win as that may have been his fate when he was due to go up against Edge but then you have to factor in the fact that Del Rio is going to RAW.
I never thought I’d see the day where Christian would get such a big push and it has been fantastic to see. Sure, this is based on circumstance but I actually forsee Christian having a good run.
The question is though, could the WWE be angling to merge its two championship belts? It’d certainly make for a lot of intrigue but it’d also kill the already-dead brand division. In the knowledge that WWE very rarely backtracks, I’m going to say that the WHC will probably stick to Smackdown.
So that’s a Christian win.
John Cena vs Miz vs John Morrison (Cage Match for WWE Championship)
This will also be another interesting match because you have to factor in the amount of publicity that WWE has gained from The Miz being champion. You also have to think about the R Truth factor and I believe that Truth may play a big part in tonight’s match. I think he will either beat up Morrison before the match in a bid to get in it but then the RAW GM announces it’ll just be Cena vs Miz or he’ll climb up the cage and interfere during the match.
I think the first option is more likely and will bring the biggest surprise. I just hope R Truth isn’t too tied up dealing with Jimmy, his new imaginary friend.
I find it too difficult to imagine The Miz losing the belt just yet so I’m going to have to predict that The Miz will win.
So they’re my predictions but what are yours? Who do you foresee as the winners? Leave a comment, tweet me, break into my house and write them with blood. Either way, let me know!
