TERRORDOME!: "Black Machismo" Jay Lethal vs. Curry Man vs. Kaz vs. Alex Shelley vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Chris Sabin vs. Johnny Devine vs. Shark Boy vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Consequences Creed. Winner becomes #1 contender.
I'm going to guess that Petey's going to keep his title and use subterfuge or Steiner to avoid title matches for the next two months. Therefore, this #1 contendership will be forgotten long before it comes to pass. Therefore it doesn't really matter who wins. I'll give it to Consequences Creed, who really needs to do something to make us take notice sometime soon.
DEUCES WILD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT: Man, not only are the random teams all feuding pairs, but half of the established teams aren't really established at all. Winners become Tag Champs.
It's really hard to imagine that this isn't an excuse to have wacky tag champions who can't get along, but I'm going to go ahead and predict Cage and Rhino because most of the other options make my head hurt.
KNOCKOUTS MAKEOVER BATTLE ROYAL: Gail Kim vs. ODB vs. Traci Brooks vs. Velvet Sky vs. Angelina Love vs. Jacqueline vs. Christy Hemme vs. Roxxi Laveaux vs. Rhaka Khan vs. Salinas. Winner becomes #1 contender.
I think it'll come down to Gail Kim and Roxxi Laveaux, and, even though she has immunity to the head-shaving, Gail Kim wins and Roxxi gets the haircut. (I am predicting this because Roxxi has "gimmick" hair and maybe she wants to get rid of it.)
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Samoa Joe vs. Scott Steiner vs. Kurt Angle. Winner is champ.
So Frank Trigg ("A Huge Angle Fan!" according to Tenay) will be doing commentary, Rick Steiner will be "in attendance," and Joe will of course have Kevin Nash in his corner. I am going to predict that this will lead to a Trigg/Rick/Nash match at the next PPV. Oh, and Samoa Joe retains.

TERRORDOME Kaz deserves SOMETHING after going from inches of beating Kurt to a ridiculous program as Super Eric's sidekick. I'll give it to Kaz.
DEUCES WILD This whole tournament seems to exist solely as a vehicle to create Vince Russo's favorite hackneyed plot device: The Wacky Tag Team Champions That Can't Get Along (or WTTCTCGA, for short). With that in mind, I'm going to say Sting and James Storm win the whole thing.
Bonus prediction: I'll go against the norm and say Awesome Kong gets paired up with Robert Roode. When they lose and an in-character Roode attempts to berate Kong for the loss, Kong knocks him on his ass.
KNOCKOUTS MAKEOVER BATTLE ROYAL The wrestling gods clearly hate Christy Hemme, dating back to the day Voodoo Kin Mafia decided to just arbitrarily label her a slut for no good reason. With that in mind, Gail Kim wins and Hemme comes in second place, because someone in creative will find it funny to shave a perfectly nice girl's head.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE I smell CLUSTERFUCK! Trigg and Rick Steiner run-in and cause general mayhem while Nash turns on Joe. Joe somehow overcomes it and still wins.
I think if Booker T and Robert Roode team together, they'll win the titles, because nobody is allowed to feud with Robert Roode for any amount of time shorter than three years. My secondary prediction is AJ Styles and Super Eric.
I don't see Nash turning on Joe here, since it's been made clear that Nash wants the belt. I'd say that some time Nash saves Joe (either after the match tonight, or at one of the next two Impacts), and then turns on him, to set up a title match.

Jay Lethal actually beat Angle, AND saved the X Division. And they've got him as a cheap-o too naive to notice his best buddy stealing his girlfriend.
TNA: Where pushes go to die.
It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.
I think the key here is that Steve Austin really has no incentive to return whereas Hogan would probably be really into just having the ultimate big WrestleMania money match. Austin losing to Rock was a perfectly acceptable last match.
