Last time I predicted one match correctly, so I will see if I can top that and screw everything up this time.
AdR Orton HHH Ziggler (titles never change hands in randomly thrown together Fatal 4-Ways) Beth Air Boom Cody
Just so much: it's astounding how much is talked about the DIVA'S MATCH! Did they actually come up with something remotely interesting that would make people WATCH the match instead of using it as the regular piss break?
Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena, WWE Championship Match: Del Rio. Somehow.
Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry, World Heavyweight Championship Match: Henry. Hopefully.
CM Punk vs. Triple H, No Disqualification Match: HHH, though I'd prefer Punk.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger vs. John Morrison vs. Alex Riley, United States Championship Match: I'll go with what others have said: Swagger, to continue the squabbling between Ziggler, Swagger, and Vickie.
Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix, Divas Championship Match: Beth.
Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. The Miz & R-Truth, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Kofi & Evan, purely to see if that creates more CONSPIRACY.
Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase, Intercontinental Championship Match: Rhodes.
Originally posted by JustinShapiroMightn't it be good for Kelly to lose and chase against a big mean obstacle for poor little nice girl? I think one of the most important things in Trish Stratus making a real connection with the WWE then-iverse was her programs with Jazz and Victoria, where they gave her so much adversity and so many bitch-beatdowns but she never gave up and finally persevered.
Well, sir, no less an expect on the Divas than Trish Stratus (wwe.com) agrees with your assessment that a hungry Kelly Kelly who knows what it's like to be on top and lose and want it back might be the best thing for her. This, coupled with Beth actually being booked to be dominant on Smackdown in squashing AJ, and top secret news from an excited K2 that she hasn't revealed yet on Twitter leads me to suspect Beth might just get a hometown Divas Title win on Sunday.
Still, I'll hold fast to my prediction Kelly walks out with the pink butterfly somehow.
Del Rio/Cena - Del Rio in screwy fashion. The feud must continue. Blah.
Henry/Orton - They've done a masterful job building Henry up and it seems like he -has- to win. Strangely enough, I think he actually will. Any chance Taker's on the horizon? It seems like Mark's being set up to eventually challenge him (although not at Mania, they're not -that- crazy...are they?)
Rhodes/Dibiase - Easy pick of the night, Rhodes retains.
Ziggler/Swagger/Riley/Morrison - Who's the face if Swagger and Dolph end up in a full feud? At this point, I feel like Vicki turns on Dolph and helps Swagger get the win, probably at Riley's expense. So, Swagger here.
Beth Phoenix/Kelly Kelly - Kelly wins by fluke/roll-up, then gets destroyed after.
Air Boom/Miz-Truth - Miz and Truth are very awesome, but they both won their singles matches and it seems inevitable that AB wins in the team environment, allowing M/T to cry conspiracy further.
Triple H/Punk - I've struggled with this one. Clearly shenanigans will happen, but I have a feeling it will be a phenomenal match before the overbooking kicks in. That said, HHH is somehow betrayed, Punk wins but isn't satisfied and stays a face, ending up teaming with Trip against whoever's behind things. I desperately wish it was a returning Jericho, just because a Punk/Jericho feud would be SWEET, but that's just not going to happen. But I can dream.

Alberto Del Rio vs John Cena - The way this has been built up, with Cena burying ADR's gimmick at every turn, the finish really should be ADR going over clean. ADR will win, but it won't be clean, and Cena will continue to bury him on the mic.
Randy Orton vs Mark Henry - Henry destroys Orton in some fashion, allowing Orton to retain by DQ.
Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan - Yes indeed. Bryan cashes in on Orton and shockingly gets the World Title here.
HHH vs CM Punk - I'll go for Punk winning here, with possible interference from Nash/Laurinitis.
Beth vs Kelly Kelly - Kelly retains again.
Air Boom vs Awesome Truth - Air Boom retain.
Cody Rhodes vs Ted Dibiase - Rhodes retains.
Fatal Four Way - I can see them putting the belt on Alex Riley.
Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena, WWE Championship Match: Del Rio wins with help from somebody. Feud continues.
Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry, World Heavyweight Championship Match: Mark Henry in surprisingly dominant fashion.
CM Punk vs. Triple H, No Disqualification Match: Triple H wins when Nash, Johnny Ace, Stephanie, Motorhead, Michael Cole, a flock of geese, the 1989 Denver Broncos, and anybody else who is hanging around backstage interferes.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger vs. John Morrison vs. Alex Riley, United States Championship Match: Scott Keith suggested using this to turn everyone on Morrison and give Vickie a stable, which I think is a good idea. SO it won't happen. Swagger wins and Dolph and him continue feuding.
Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix, Divas Championship Match: There is only one major storyline going on in the Diva's division right now and in order for it to continue Beth needs a win so she gets it here.
Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne vs. The Miz & R-Truth, WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Air Boom win, but Miz/Truth look strong in the process. Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase, Intercontinental Championship Match: For whatever reason they seem determined to try and get DiBiase over, but I think Cody wins here and they continue to fued.
Welp, that's the plan. Meltzer said on WOL that JBL's already been told he's winning the title at the PPV. Broader question, why do two stiffs like Mark Henry and The Great Khali get such big (and in Henry's case continuous)
