World Heavyweight Title Match King Booker (C) vs. Batista vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Finlay
Although I'd kinda like to see Finlay win here just to see what would happen, I'll predict that King Booker somehow manages to retain here.
Non-Title Match Mr. Kennedy vs. The Undertaker
Undertaker wins relatively easily-- he's good at squashing the up-and-comers. My hero.
Falls Count Anywhere Match Rey Mysterio vs. Chavo Guerrero
I'll give Rey the nod in this one, when Vicki's attempt at heel chicanery backfires.
MVP's Debut Montel Vontavius Porter vs. ???
I doubt they'll have MVP lose in his debut match, but then again I'm not sure what kinda story they're trying to tell with him. I'll give the nod to MVP here.
Non-Title Match? Matt Hardy vs. Gregory Helms
Hardy's been screwed the last couple weeks while his brother got inexplicably pushed to win the Intercontinental Title. Now I think it's time for the better of the two Hardy brothers to get a win here.
WWE Tag Team Title Match Paul London and Brian Kendrick vs. KC James and Idol Stevens
I honestly could care less, because the tag-team division has so bored me recently that I've just fast-forwarded through everything involving these teams. I'll go with James and Stevens 'cuz why the hell not.

WWE presents the 12th PPV of 2006, Smackdown's No Mercy:
-WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London & Brian Kendrick [with Ashley Massero] def. KC James & Idol Stevens [with Michelle McCool] via pinfall. No reason to take the belts off the champs now, especially to such weak challengers. IF they lose the belts, it's at a big event (Survivor Series or the Rumble). -WWE Cruiserweight Champion of the World Gregory Helms def. Matt Hardy. Again, no real reason for Helms to lose the belt. And the Cruiser belt is below Hardy at this point. Helms wins via cheating. -Montel Vontavious Porter def. Mystery Opponent in his debut. MVP looks decent in his debut. I *want* the Mystery Opponent to be somebody like The Boogeyman, but it'll likely be somebody like Scotty 2 Hotty or Funaki. -Chavo Guerrero [with Vicki Guerrero] def. Rey Mysterio in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. Vicki gets involved, Rey gets the loss. I'd expect Chris Benoit to return to save Mysterio from a heel beatdown. -WWE United States Champion Ken Kennedy def. The Undertaker by DQ. You HAVE to give Kennedy the rub...but it's pretty difficult to give him a pinfall victory over the Undertaker. Plus, Taker laid down for The Great Khali on PPV this year. He needs to maintain credibility. Kennedy actually fights toe-to-toe. -World Heavyweight Champion King Booker [with Queen Sharmell & Sir William Regal] def. Bobby Lashley, Batista and Sir Finlay in a Fatal Four-Way. I'm smelling a swerve. His Highness and the Court are actually in collusion...with Lashley. Heel beatdown! Booker retains. If Benoit doesn't return earlier in the night, he appears here.
I think that ref bumps are symptomatic of a larger breakdown of in-ring psychology. Nowadays, since a matchette is basically a race to hit the finisher (unless you possess the ability to pull off a devastating Schoolboy while holding the tights)
