WWE Championship: Triple H vs. Vladimir Kozlov/Jeff Hardy/Kozlov & Hardy: I'm gonna guess Hardy solo gets the votes....and Kozlov interferes for the schmozz ending.
Undertaker vs. Big Show in a Knockout/I Quit/Last Man Standing Match: Since Show is the resident KO artist, I don't think the fans would want to see that match. I'll go Last Man Standing and Taker gets his win back.
World Title Match: Chris Jericho vs. Batista with Randy Orton/Steve Ausin/Shawn Michaels as special ref: Bah, Austin is the special ref and Jericho wins (though I wouldn't be surprised to see Batista as champ).
Kane vs. Rey Mysterio in a Falls Count Anywhere/No Holds Barred/2-out-of-3 Falls Match: Since Falls Count Anywhere is No Holds Barred with an extra stip, that gets picked. And Kane wins.
ECW Title Match: Matt Hardy vs. Mark Henry/Finlay/Evan Bourne: Oooh, Bourne gets his shot, but no way does he get the win.
I.C Title Match: Santino Marella vs. Goldust/Roddy Piper/Honky Tonk Man: Tough one. I think fans are conditioned to think of Piper as the bigger star of those three, but HTM has been pushed lately. I think Piper wins the vote, and Santino wins the match, with HTM getting involved somehow.
Jamie Noble & Mickie James vs. William Regal & Layla; or Miz & Morrison vs. Cryme Tyme; or Rhodes & Dibiase vs. CM Punk & Kofi Kingston: Punk fans vote en masse, and his match is chosen. They get the win over the tag champs, making them #1 contenders for hte tag belts.
Divas Halloween Costume Contest: Hard to guess since we don't know the outfits; but I'll say Mickie successfully defends her crown.
Originally posted by MUTigermaskI've sort of been away from wresting for a while and just came back this year. Do they use the actual results of the voting for Cyber Sunday, or do the tweak it to fit what they want?
I think WWE is pretty smart about it and they make the choices so that the one they want to be chosen is the most popular. Take the Jericho match for example. Orton is in there because the WWE knows he won't be picked. I'm sure they put Stone Cold in there knowing he'll be most popular. If they wanted HBK in there to continue the Jericho feud then they would've used two option less popular than HBK. That being said if they were wrong and the vote didn't go the way they wanted I wouldn't put it past them to fix it. I'm sure there are some matches (Hardy match?) where they genuinely don't mind going with any of the options.
Originally posted by MUTigermaskWorld Title-Jericho over Big Dave by heavy cheating and ref shenanigans(Austin). Can't see Jericho losing it so soon. He's done too good with it.
Care to expand on the ref shenanigans? Do you mean to say that Austin as ref would somehow help Jericho win? Or are you saying that even if/when Jericho wins, he'll eat a stunner?
I was thinking along the lines of if it is Austin, something such as Batista accidentally hitting Austin leading to them getting into a fight allowing Jericho to sneak in the victory. Or if Michaels if picked, he goes to hit Jerich with Sweet Chin Music but hits Batista instead. Maybe then going to Batista vs. Michaels vs. Jericho for SS.
WWE Championship: Triple H vs. Vladimir Kozlov/Jeff Hardy/Kozlov & Hardy: think fans like Hardy and want to see Kozlov, so we'll see a triple threat. This eliminates a DQ possibility so I think HHH pins Hardy again.
Undertaker vs. Big Show in a Knockout/I Quit/Last Man Standing Match: I agree the fans will vote for Last Man Standing, even though I Quit is a little more interesting, and Undertaker will get his win back.
World Title Match: Chris Jericho vs. Batista with Randy Orton/Steve Ausin/Shawn Michaels as special ref: Stone Cold as ref, Jericho wins. This one is pretty obvious. Batista is a real choke artist.
Kane vs. Rey Mysterio in a Falls Count Anywhere/No Holds Barred/2-out-of-3 Falls Match: Weird stipulations for this one. I say Rey finally beats the big man in Falls Count Anywhere.
ECW Title Match: Matt Hardy vs. Mark Henry/Finlay/Evan Bourne: Fans will definitely vote for Bourne and he will definitely not win. I say Mark Henry comes in and destroys them both for a non finish, then Finlay makes the save with the shelligeah.
I.C Title Match: Santino Marella vs. Goldust/Roddy Piper/Honky Tonk Man: Goldust won't win, that's for sure. I say Honky Tonk Man wins because they've been building that Honk-A-Meter, but Santino brings out a midget dressed up as HTM and pins him easily. Then, Haas dressed as Ultimate Warrior comes out and wins the IC title on RAW.
Jamie Noble & Mickie James vs. William Regal & Layla; or Miz & Morrison vs. Cryme Tyme; or Rhodes & Dibiase vs. CM Punk & Kofi Kingston: If Punk/Kofi win, is it for the tag titles? If so, they win the vote and lose by shenanigans. If not, they win the vote and the match.
Divas Halloween Costume Contest: I don't know, I don't care, I just hope they look good.
Shelton Benjamin vs R-Truth, MVP, Festus: Seriously? If this is for the title, Shelton retains. They wouldn't change the US title on WWE.com, would they?
I don't see any titles changing hands tonight. HHH wins cleanly because he's such a damn Mary Sue. Jericho wins with sneaky heelishness. Maybe he hits Batista with the belt and Steve Austin reluctantly counts to three and then stunners him. I bet Batista gets stunnered too because nobody is allowed to look better than Steve Austin.
I say they keep Undertaker/Big Show going another month, Undertaker gets chokeslammed off of something or through something for the loss.
Kane wins, Rey gets the "fighting underdog" thing.
Santino wins a comedy match, Matt Hardy wins in like 5 minutes, and Miz and Morrisson beat Cryme Tyme.
- HHH pins Kozlov in a Triple threat w/Hardy . - Batista over Jericho by DQ with Austin as the ref. He then stuns Jericho and shares a beer with Dave. - Matt Hardy pins Borne. - Santino pins Honky. - Kane pins Rey in Falls Count Anywhere. - Taker beats Show in I Quit match. - If it counts, Shelton pins MVP.

Err...no pun intended, right? Yeah, RAW didn't have much in ring action but I was darn sure entertained as I said in the RAW thread. It was probably the best RAW of 2004, so far. Anyways, I hope that the rating does stays strong.
