Ditto on the picks with one exception. I think Batista and Khali will go to a double countout when both guys fight to the back. There's really nothing for Batista to do, so they'll probably want to rematch these two at Summerslam with a stipulation attached.

Originally posted by GugsEvery champion retains, Orton over Dusty, Khali over Batista.
I agree with this - but I have a sneaking suspicion that the Lashley/Cena match is going to switch, with Lashley (finally) going somewhere, and I assume with help from the outside. Possible HHH help. I want to see what happens on Raw tonight about this one.
Cena retains over Lashley. And I don't see Triple H helping anyone win a championship, least of all Lashley, whom he's never met.
Edge retains over Kane. I don't think Kane will ever be a world heavyweight champion again. (And Edge should win, he's hot right now while Kane's just the #1 Contender of the Month.)
Batista wins his third World Title by pinning Khali. I don't think Kane will ever be a world heavyweight champion again, although I think if they're ever gonna give him another run with the big belt, they should do it right now. With Edge gone, the Big Red Machine is in a perfect position to carry the brand for a couple months.
Nitro Morrison retains over Punk. He'll find some way to cheat his way to victory, but there'll be a rematch at SummerSlam with a stipulation attached, and it's there that CM Punk will finally win the ECW Title.
Orton defeats Dusty Rhodes, either because of or in spite of Cody's interference.
I've gone with a lot of heels winning here, so... Matt Hardy defeats MVP to win the United States Title. MVP wins it back shortly thereafter. I like both those guys very much, and it should be a good match.
Great Khali defeats Batista.
If Umaga defends the Intercontinental Championship, he retains it.
Umaga retains the Intercontinental Title over Jeff Hardy. (Although it'd be nice symmetry to have both Hardys win titles.)
If Cade and Murdoch defend the World Tag Team Title, they retain it. If Chavo Guerrero defends the Cruiserweight Title, he retains it. If Deuce and Domino defend the WWE Tag Team Championship...
They retain it. Unless they're facing Eugene and somebody outrageous like The Undertaker.

John Cena over Roberto Lashley Edge over Kane David Batista over The Great Khali Randy Orton over Dusty Rhodes Montel Vontavious Porter over Matt Hardy Umaga over Jeff Hardy Johnny Nitro over CM Punk Melina over Candice Michelle
And here is my ranking (from most boring to least boring):
1) Melina vs. Candice will be the most boring match of all those stinkers!
2) Dusty Rhodes vs. Randy Orton - Elbow, punch, elbow!
3) Thatīs a hard one - There are so many boring matches on this card. I just go with the safe bet: The "Great" Khali!
4) Cena vs. Lashley - If you are into steroids yourself: Here is your DREAM MATCH! I think the Warlord would be a great Special Referee for this one! (Only if heīs still jacked up AND alive!?)
5) Umaaaaaga vs. Jeff Hardy - Talk about a clash of styles!
6) MVP vs. Matt Hardy - Yeah, everybody loves Matt and he should be the WWE, World and ECW champion all at the same time, but still .... heīs REALLY BORING and will probably NEVER EVER make it! And whatīs wrong with his one leg? Kerry Von Erich was more agile than Matt and he had only one real leg! Is Mattīs leg fake as well?
7) Edge vs. Kane - JUST because of Edge! Other than that Kane is always boring as hell as well- So you never know!
8) Punk vs. Nitro - This match probably wonīt be that great as well, but at least it does involve TWO guys I actually like to see wrestle!
If you're gonna go, can you just go instead of being really, really annoying?
Cena over Lashley, clean Edge over Kane, mostly clean Nitro over Punk via heel chicanery Orton over Dusty via Cody heel turn Umaga over Hardy, clean MVP over Matt, cheatery abounds Candice over Melina, clean Batista over Khali, clean
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
WWE Championship Mash - John Cena until Trip comes back.
Heavyweight Championship - Heart says Kane, but head says Khali.
ECW Heavyweight Championship - They just changed his name, so they're not gonna waste it. Morrison.
Intercontinenal Championshpi - Jeff Hardy. Left WWE due to some kind of drug or drug test problems - comes back supposedly clean. Not that I think he'd necessarily be any kind of spokesman for them, cause he seems kinda flaky, but I think a allegedly (and self-admidtted, IIRC) reformed druggy with a pretty major title could possibly be touted as a positive for the WWE Drug Test program.
Women's Championship - Candice.
Bullrope Match - Orton. Hate to say it, but I think it's gonna be a bore.
US Championship - MVP. I like both these guys, but I think Matt will win at Summerslam or something bigger than this.
Umaga d. Jeff Hardy: They've fought each other roughly 20 times in the last six months. Not only has Umaga won each match, but it hasn't even been close. Hell, one of those matches ended with a ref stoppage and a stretcher job! What the hell makes anyone think people would want to invest their time in this match when the past matches have been so utterly decisive?
Khali d. Batista and Kane: Somehow, I see Khali winning and getting a double-pin. It just seems like something that would happen.
Sandman d. Carlito: Carlito gets the cane, but Sandman wins by spitting beer in his face...or something.
The Wisdom of Homsar: DaAaAa, these Easter pants are gettin' way too tight!
Good thing I remembered that I had made picks before...gotta change 'em now.
