Countdown to No Mercy
By SLAM! Wrestling Staff




How to you preview a pay per view with the main event not known? With a lot of guessing. Who will be in the main event, facing Randy Orton, for the WWE World title? We'll find out in a few hours. In the meantime, enjoy our pontificating...

 
MAIN EVENT: WWE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Randy Orton vs ???
 


SLAM! Predictions

Richard Kamchen

Jericho. Gives the brand the biggest pop.

Bob Kapur

Some of the other writers think Randy's opponent will be a returning Jericho, but I'm still convinced it will be Kennedy. They've been building up Orton so much, he has to go over.

Greg Oliver

Ahh, the great mystery of our time. Who will be in this match? The bigger question, perhaps, is, Can anybody topple Randy Orton. I say no. He'll be the champ after No Mercy. (It'll be Kennedy, BTW.)

Matt Mackinder

I said late last week that Chris Jericho gets the spot here. Now I'm not so sure. Maybe the whole Cena injury is a swerve? Maybe Mr. Kennedy, who's not booked at No Mercy, gets the chance and turns face? Who knows? Maybe it still is Jericho. All that's for sure in my book is that Orton wins and gets the title ... somehow.


WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH

Batista vs. Great Khali


SLAM! Predictions

Richard Kamchen

Punjabi prison match... what the hell. What a joke. Batista I guess because Great Khali going over helps no one.

Bob Kapur

What's with everyone hating on the Indian guy? Nah, I'm just kidding... he really sucks. Batista wins.

Greg Oliver

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. Me no like. Bad wrestlers. Bad match. Ugh. Batista wins.

Matt Mackinder

Why is Khali still on the WWE roster? Why??? This is "his" match, but no way does he get the title back. A match like this has juice written all over it, literally, and for a World title match, I donít know that it gets any better. Both get fanís reactions, but here, itís Big Dave that retains the gold, but loses blood.


  ECW HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH

CM Punk vs. Big Daddy V
 


SLAM! Predictions

Richard Kamchen

CM Punk v Fat Pig Daddio. Probably the latter. I can't imagine the WWE not pushing a human blob over a small man.

Bob Kapur

Can BDV please just go away? If there is anything good and holy in this world, Punk goes over.

Greg Oliver

Punk will have to prove he can work with this man on a new mission. But he'll retain, even if it's a fluke ending.

Matt Mackinder

No, no, NO! Big Fatty canít even wear pants with a belt, so why on Earth would he get a title here? This guy needs to go back to his jammies or at least the purple outfit with Mo and Oscar. I know he was once King of the Ring, but that got him nowhere. Still, Vince digs these big guys. I donít know why. Punk keeps the championship amidst interference from Matt Striker and the returning John Morrison.


 

UNDERCARD

 

 


SLAM! Predictions

Richard Kamchen
Umaga vs. Triple H - No big guess here... HHH all the way. Monster push to a 'roid monster son-in-law.
Finlay vs. Rey Mysterio - Mysterio. Finlay is just a high profile jobber. He ain't out of retirement to win, just to teach.
Candice Michelle vs. Beth Phoenix - They'll push the Amazon, of course. Phoenix.

Bob Kapur
Umaga vs. Triple H - I can't see HHH jobbing three times in a row, so look for him to get the win. And look for Vince to get his comeuppance as well.
Finlay vs. Rey Mysterio - Wow, I have no interest in this match whatsoever. Mysterio wins, I guess.
Candice Michelle vs. Beth Phoenix - Phoenix gets a dominating win.

Greg Oliver
Umaga vs. Triple H - Superman wins. Nothing can stop him.
Finlay vs. Rey Mysterio - Might be match of the night, if they allow them enough time. Mysterio wins.
Candice Michelle vs. Beth Phoenix - Phoenix rising all the way to the top, baby!

Matt Mackinder
Umaga vs. Triple H - Yeah, HHH loses. Yeah, right. More blood and another win for Hunter.
Finlay vs. Rey Mysterio - Mysterio is being groomed for another title run, so winning here over Fit is a mere formality.
Candice Michelle vs. Beth Phoenix - A new champ gets crowned tonight in Beth Phoenix. Candice had a good run, though.
