C.M. Punk vs. The Rock, WWE Championship Match: I'd love for Punk to retain and do title vs. streak against Undertaker at Wrestlemania. He still may face Taker there, but I think Rock wins here, leading to a WM re-match with the Rumble winner, who will be...

30-Man Royal Rumble Match: John Cena. There are a few other options and a dark-horse like Sheamus last year could always come out on top, but he seems to make the most sense as far as building to Mania.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show, Last Man Standing Match for the World Championship: Del Rio retains. I would guess Ziggler cashes in here, but they seem to be building Del Rio as this big Latin icon, and having him lose the belt so quickly won't do much for that.

Team Hell No vs. Team Rhodes Scholars, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: I don't think WWE gives up on the juggernaut that is Team Hell No quite yet, but it isn't doing anything for Sandow and Rhodes to be losing this often.

C.M. Punk vs. The Rock, WWE Championship Match: I just feel that Rock's time is over he shouldn't be in the main event of a ppv let alone the Champion. So I have to go with Punk


30-Man Royal Rumble Match: John Cena it's not like anyone else was built up as even having a shot to win this. Dolph wont, Kali wont, The only other person I can kinda see winning this is Wade Barret.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show, Last Man Standing Match for the World Championship: Del Rio

Team Hell No vs. Team Rhodes Scholars, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Hell No.

C.M. Punk vs. The Rock, WWE Championship Match: CM Punk retains. He boasts on RAW that NO ONE can defeat him, which leads to Elimination Chamber. Cena and Rock go at it and cost each other the victory, setting up a grudge match. Punk then declares NO MORTAL CAN DEFEAT HIM. Which of course is clearly temping fate.

30-Man Royal Rumble Match: Ziggler picks #1 due to his ego, and legit goes coast to coast, meaning he has the briefcase AND wins the Rumble. Builds him up huge.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show, Last Man Standing Match for the World Championship: Del Rio wins the match.

Team Hell No vs. Team Rhodes Scholars, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Rhodes Scholars.

Kaitlyn wins vs whoever, and Cesaro wins over the Miz.


ALTERNATIVE FANTASY BOOKING [BUT OH MAN, ZED HATES THIS BUT IT'S ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA (THESE ARE NOT PREDICTIONS BUT WHATEVER)]

Ziggler tries to cash in and LOSES thanks to Ricardo or whatever. Ziggler looks like a huge chump, and the entire IWC screams in disgust.

The Rumble happens, and Ziggler goes coast to coast. He picks the WWE title, to fight the Rock. Cena somehow works his way into the title picture, which then leads to a Triple Threat at Mania, leading to a passing of the torch.

C.M. Punk vs. The Rock, WWE Championship Match: Rock. You have 6 months of buildup going into this match and the opportunity to set up WrestleMania 29 well in advance of the event here.

Personally, I'm all for adding more days to CM Punk's reign, and for Punk defeating The Rock, but I also don't see The Rock coming back to lose to both Punk and Cena. So, he has to beat one and lose to the other, unless it's setting up a Triple Threat match. But it's likely not.


30-Man Royal Rumble Match: Cena, with Ziggler being the last guy eliminated. Like above, setting up the WrestleMania match is probably more important. Sure, they could screw Cena out of the win, then have him win the title shot at the February PPV. They do need to do something with the WWE Title (RAW?) Elimination Chamber match. But Cena winning the Rumble and Rock winning the title is clean cut and well defined.

The idea of Ziggler having both the Rumble and the MITB in his back pocket is a really cool one to explore, though. Surely, there's a payoff for Ziggler holding the MITB briefcase for so long. But, for as decisive as WWE seems to be about the WWE Title scene, they seem really indecisive about the World Title scene.

It seems like Ziggler's turning face, but Del Rio turned face and he's the champ, so he almost needs to lose to a heel so Ziggler can cash in. I don't know what's going on, but the briefcase he has is for the World Title, not the WWE title, and I see Ziggler staying on that side of the fence, so winning the Rumble does nothing but convolute things.


Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show, Last Man Standing Match for the World Championship: Del Rio. They seem to be getting behind this reign at the moment and it's too soon for him to lose it.

Team Hell No vs. Team Rhodes Scholars, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Rhodes Scholars wins here just to make things more interesting between Team Hell No. They can win the belts back later.


Also, Cesaro.

The Rock, I don't like it, but its what Vince wants.

30-Man Royal Rumble Match: The Miz enters 3rd(like Ric Flair did) and is last eliminated. Cena wins. I don't like it, but its what Vince wants.

Alberto Del Rio

Rio over Ziggler. Ziggler tries to win the title and rumble in the same night, but fails.

Team Rhodes Scholars - Kane causes a DQ.


Surprise Rumblers -Lesnar, New Age Outlaws.

Punk/Rock - Cena/Rock seems set in stone for Wrestlemania so that means Rock getting the belt before then. If they do Punk/Undertaker at WrestleMania then I don't envision Undertaker a) losing or b) defending his newly won WWE title. So that means Punk losing the belt before WrestleMania. The question is; does Rock win the title here or at Elimination Chamber? As I don't know if he's even gonna be at EC (I kinda hope he is as a Rock/Punk/Cena/Ryback/Bryan/Kane Elimination Chamber match would be pretty great), the safe bet is Rock pinning Punk at Royal Rumble.
Winner - Rock

30 Man Royal Rumble - Cena seems like a mortal lock here.
Winner - Cena

Del Rio/Big Show - I don't see Del Rio holding onto the belt past Elimination Chamber but it's too soon to take it off him here.
Winner - Del Rio

Hell No/Rhodes Scholars - Hell No win, blowing off this feud, before moving onto a feud with The Shield. Maybe.

Surprise Entrants - New Age Outlaws, Shelton Benjamin, John Morrison, Mick Foley

WWE Title Match
CM Punk (champion) vs. The Rock

I prefer: CM Punk.
I predict: The Rock.

Golly, but this is one prediction I'd love to get wrong. No way CM Punk's historic title reign should come to an end at the hands of a guy who's only wrestling his third match since 2004. (And if I recall correctly, only his fourth match since losing the WWE Title to Brock at SummerSlam '02!!)

Royal Rumble Match

I prefer: Drew McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz or failing that, anybody but John Cena.
I predict: John Cena.

(Of course there's no way Drew McIntyre will win the Royal Rumble, but) wouldn't it make a nice change to have a true underdog win the Royal Rumble? I think the last time that's honestly happened was with Benoit in '04.

I predict that Cena wins here, though, meaning that we have a rematch of the "Once in a Lifetime" match at last year's WrestleMania. Marketing slogans and stipulations don't mean anything, after all.

WCW Title Match
Alberto Del Rio (champion) vs. The Big Show

I prefer and predict: Alberto Del Rio.

Way too early for him to be losing the belt, and he is just straight up KILLING as a face. Who would've thought?

Tag Team Title Match
Kane (champions) and Daniel Bryan (champions) vs. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow

I prefer and predict: Team Rhodes Scholars.

Though they can ditch the word "team" from the name. Just "Rhodes Scholars". It's cleaner.

Surprise Entrants: Brock Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin, and what the hell, Ric Flair. It's not like Flair has never come back from a retirement match before.

I disagree with TheGreatWhiteBob; I don't believe John Morrison's coming back. I'd love to be wrong, though.

United States Title Match
Antonio Cesaro (champion) vs. The Miz

I prefer: The Miz.
I predict: Antonio Cesaro.

Because THIS FEUD MUST CONTINUE!

Another prediction: If Rock wins the title here, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY he defends the belt inside the Elimination Chamber. That is not a match for Hollywood pretty-boys. (He might defend the title at the PPV in a singles rematch against Punk, though).

Del Rio d. Big Show. I'm loving Alberto as a face.

The Rock d. CM Punk, but Ziggler cashes in immediately. Technicality.

Royal Rumble: Anyone but Cena. I'm sick and tired of him.

Rhodes/Sandow d. Bryan/Kane, but the titles stay with Hell No.

Cesaro d. Miz.

Zigler wins the Royal Rumble.

Disagree. I think Rock doesn't get the belt until Elimination Chamber.

Rhodes Scholars win the titles when Justin's amazing best-fantasy-booking-ever scheme of a Dr. Shelby turn comes to fruition
Kaitlyn retains, has giant hooters
Cesaro defeats Le Miz
Del Rio retains against Show, but Dolph cashes in and steals the title
Punk defeats Rock via some form of shenanigans
Cena last eliminated Dolph to win the Rumble and foil Ziggler's night-long plot to unify the belts at WrestleMania. Surprise entrants: Shelton Benjamin, X-Pac and Batista

Ziggler wins the Rumble after failing to cash in MITB.

Kaitlyn wins if she faces anyone.
