WWE TLC PPV Predictions
This PPV is stacked. Every match is a gimmick match... which should be interesting. Will it be enough to generate PPV buys? Vince McMahon seems to think so.
The only problem going into this PPV with all these gimmick matches is that the wrestlers can't give it their all. I'm not saying they won't try their hardest, but they'll definitely limit their moves so it doesn't outshine the other matches. So in a ladder match, you'll see probably one unique move and that's it. =\ WWE Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Ladder Match: Dolph Ziggler (Intercontinental Champion) w/Vickie Guerrero vs Kofi Kingston vs Jack Swagger
If there was a match I would pick to steal the show, it would be this one. This feud started when Kofi fought Jack in a #1 Contenders match and Kofi Kingston won that match by hitting a Trouble in Paradise finisher on Swagger while he was in the ropes.
Swagger claims that it was illegal but apparently his protest didn't go through. Kofi Kingston then fought Dolph Ziggler in a title match on Smackdown and would have won the Intercontinental Title if it weren't for Jack Swagger interfering and giving Kofi Kingston the Ankle Lock.
It sucks to see Jack Swagger here fighting for the Intercontinental Championship since he was the World Heavyweight Champion 6 months ago! Jack has been used extremely poorly as of late and I'm surprised he's even in this match.
Dolph Ziggler hasn't exactly been on the winning side either. He's been losing to Daniel Bryan every time he shows up on RAW and gets his butt kicked by Kofi Kingston as well. Not really the best way to build the IC Champion but whatever.
Kofi Kingston on the other hand is quite over with the crowd. However, since he's working against 2 heels.. I don't see him winning this. I'm going to go with Swagger to win the IC Title. He's been handled poorly ever since he lost the World Heavyweight Title. Perhaps this win can be a good reboot to his character. My Prediction: Jack Swagger wins the Intercontinental Championship. Divas Tag Team Tables Match: Lay-Cool vs. Natalya & Beth Phoenix
I heard that WWE made this match to counter TNA's Women's match which held in a Steel Cage between Mickie James and Tara? Unless I'm wrong.. doesn't matter.
I'm not sure who will win this but I'm certain that Michelle McCool will not go through the table. Undertaker isn't going to allow it.
I think this feud between the tag team divas could go a little longer so perhaps Natalya will go through the table. My Prediction: Lay-Cool. Chairs Match: Wade Barrett vs John Cena
*Sigh* I'm sure you all feel the same way I do. This storyline had SO MUCH
potential but it derailed so badly. Cena is "re-hired" and I don't see him losing. I kept getting my hopes up with Nexus and yet over and over, I kept getting suckered in to thinking WWE will go a different route.
But let's face it... WWE is too scared to do anything. They refused to turn him heel and they didn't even bother selling the "fired" angle. Super Cena will win but where will he go from here? What's going to happen to Wade Barrett and Nexus after Super Cena wins again?
Thanks WWE. My Prediction: John Cena. Ladder Match to determine the #1 Contender for the WWE Championship: Sheamus vs John Morrison
This one seems like a no-brainer to be honest. As great as it would be for Sheamus to win this... since he's the King of The Ring and all... there's no way he'll be facing The Miz at a PPV for the WWE Title. Heel vs heel match = no-no for WWE.
John Morrison also needs the win really badly if they're serious about making him a main-eventer. Besides, a feud between Morrison and Miz? That would be quite interesting since they were Tag Team Champions on ECW. My Prediction: John Morrison WWE Championship Tables Match: The Miz (WWE Champion) w/Alex Riley vs Randy Orton
No chance in hell Randy Orton wins the WWE Title here and I commend him for losing to The Miz. This is a gimmick match which means The Miz can win with help. Just look at Sheamus last year when he beat John Cena for the WWE Title in the very same Tables match. There was no way Cena would get pinned cleanly in a 1 on 1 match and there is no way people would believe it if The Miz pins Orton in a singles match.
So Tables Match it is...
One thing I do want to take a wild guess on and that is Michael Cole going through a table. I think Orton will look like he's about to win and then Michael Cole interferes and gets powerbombed through a table for his trouble. This will allow the fans to be happy that Cole got killed and then The Miz can still retain the WWE Title. My Prediction: The Miz retains the WWE Championship. World Heavyweight Championship Tables, Ladders & Chairs Fatal Four Way Match: Kane (World Heavyweight Champion) vs Edge vs Rey Mysterio vs Alberto Del Rio
This one is quite exciting. I'm certain that this match will have lots of spots and will be fun to watch. This is Edge's match as the TLC match is his specialty.
Edge is the favorite to win despite what he did to Kane for weeks. One can argue that Kane will retain again because he's been on the wrong end of this whole feud. But I don't know... I'd like to see Kane in the Royal Rumble since he holds so much records for that match.
Alberto Del Rio winning the World Heavyweight Title would be insanely awesome. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening just yet. Plus, you already have The Miz as an "undeserving champ" on RAW. I don't think people would like it if Alberto Del Rio held a title on Smackdown.
I can see Rey Mysterio win this yet again since he's the ultimate underdog. Also, if Alberto Del Rio is to win the World title, I think he needs to beat someone like Rey Mysterio to do so.
So I'll go with... Rey Mysterio. I think Edge/Kane will be too focused on each other and it'll prevent Edge from winning this match. My Prediction: Rey Mysterio wins the World Heavyweight Championship
