Really, those are my own as well, which makes me a little unsure. When was the last time that the absolute consensus happened?
What's worse is I am actually going to watch and pay money to see a PPV where I (at least feel that I) know every circumstance; I made a promise to buddies that I would go once the Raw matches were announced. The bad thing is that the Smackdown matches gave us pause.
I find the most erotic part of the woman is the boobies.
I agree with geemoney, EXCEPT I think there will be a screwy DQ type finish for Orton-Cena, to set up a 3 way dance at WM with HHH. I just don't think they will pull the rug completely out from under Orton at this point. I can't believe I am saying it, but he has done a decent job as champ for the last 4 months, and those type of reigns this time of year usually result in a WM title match. If he loses Sunday, he also doesn't deserve to be chucked into the Jeff Hardy consolation MITB match.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... I present my No Way Out picks in haiku:
Orton v. Cena:
Ding, dong, Dumbfuck's dead No chinlocks in main events You can't see the Champ
WINNER: John Cena
Edge v. Rey:
A contest in doubt Means a change in the results DQ to clean loss
RAW Elimination Chamber:
Five good plus Bradshaw Will a prior wrong be fixed? Alas, not to be.
WINNER: Triple H
SD/ECW Elimination Chamber:
Two good, stiffs, hopeless Despite forces of nature The dead shall reign tall
WINNER: The Undertaker
Chavo v. Punk:
Is Uncle Eddie Looking down? Yes, and rooting Against flesh and blood.
WINNER: CM Punk
Flair v. Kennedy:
A swerve is coming Evil will cheat to triumph Good gets one last day?
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
Somehow, I actually think that the E will listen to the fans and put Jeff Hardy in the main event at Wrestlemania. It really isn't *that* out of character for them when you consider the past title wins (at or leading up to Mania) by Eddie, Benoit, and Rey. Therefore, I'm also going to predict that Orton retains.
Elsewhere, I'll go Taker (duh), Flair, Chavo, and Edge...over Kane.
CM Punk over Chavo when Chavo's "injuries" from the Gulf of Mexico match (SINUS INFECTION) rear its ugly head.
If there are any extra matches, I predict Santito (Santino and Carlito), Mickie James, Jamie Noble and Kelly Kelly.

I'm wondering how Undertaker AND Batista are getting into the main event of WRESTLEMANIA?
This also leaves Orton and Edge out of the title scene, which seems shitty for the two of them.
Under this scenario, Cena wins the title, HHH wins his Chamber and one of Batista or UT wins the Smackdown Chamber. Then, whichever of Batista/Taker didn't win the Chamber wins the belt on Smackdown (OR, one of them beats Edge at No Way Out as a replacement for Mysterio, and Matt Hardy replaces them in the Chamber). Or, to make it more interesting, HHH and the Smackdown chamber winner trade shots to set up Cena/UT and HHH/Batista or Cena/Batista and HHH/Undertaker.
This doesn't really make sense, though.
Chavo over Punk Edge over Rey Flair over Kennedy Cena over Orton for the title, but Orton invokes his rematch clause for Mania to make it a three-way... ...with HHH, who wins the Chamber Undertaker wins the Smackdown chamber

Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras
Orton wins over Cena (I think the HHH/Cena rematch will happen, but it won't be for the title. It's not needed, Orton's too hot, and so is his WM opponent . . . )
Jeff Hardy wins the RAW Elimination chamber, goes on to face Orton at WM.
Edge defeats Mysterio.
Undertaker wins the SmackDown! elimination chamber, faces Edge at WM.
Mr. Kennedy defeats Ric Flair to end his career. (But Flair will have one more match at Wrestlemania vs. Shawn Michaels a la Mick Foley's retirement. I think they are going to do it this way, because to have Flair's career ended at Wrestlemania is just far too predictable.)
Chavo wins over Punk.
I predicted three "upsets." (Kennedy, Hardy, Orton). Realistically, I'm hoping one of the three ends up being true, but I admit it may be wishful thinking on my part.
Having Kennedy beat Flair and then Flair do a final match with Michaels would be preferable to me, because psychologically it'd make no sense for Shawn to want to retire him. This way, an up-and-coming guy would get the boost from ending Flair's career and then Flair and Shawn could have the right kind of build for that kind of farewell match.

Doesn't that set up Ric Flair for more 'comeback/one time' matches even earlier than normal?
Although, I like the idea of Flair going out with a win.
Since I've been reading everyone's speculation on the boards, and watching both brands week in and week out, I thought I'd lay out how we'll probably see the WWE brands in the New Year. Here goes: Nitro. Yes, THE Nitro. Not WCW Nitro, though.
