Cody Rhodes vs Dustin Rhodes (aka Goldust)
I thought this is obvious with the path that the Rhodes family is going down, with Cody being the “cold-hearted, greedy” brother. I see Cody winning, if only to put him even more over and possibly begin his main event push. Even if he loses, the match could still catapult him from upper-mid card to main event status, maybe with a humbler image from losing to his so-called “pathetic excuse for a brother.”
Dolph Ziggler vs Foley
Now, this may seem like a stretch to a lot of people, but we’ve seen this play out before with Edge and Orton both. Both were up and comers, ready for the main event scene, but they hadn’t really shown that they were ready or even able to pull off an edgier side (no pun intended) and get extreme. Ziggler is following that same path. He’s ready for a main event push, he just needs to show that he can go all out. Not that he hasn’t already, he just needs those rough edges ground out and he’ll be one of the biggest stars in the business.
The Jericho Scenario in general
Now, I’ve been confused with the angle they’re going with Jericho. If he were going to be made a face/babyface, they would’ve had him talk long before tonight, get the crowd more amped up and he wouldn’t’ve walked out last week in the tag. But if they were going full heel, they wouldn’t be doing this either as they’d be having him get more heat. Potentially a great tweener persona for him, although I feel he’s at his best as a heel. Whether or not he wins at the Rumble remains to be seen, as this year’s Rumble could go several ways, but either way I expect to see the following match….
Jericho vs Punk for the WWE title at Mania
This is the only other potential draw they could have for the event, IMO. With Rock vs Cena already cemented for the main event (although, prior to last year, the main event was always supposed to go to the Rumble winner… it was the first match last year, talk about dropping the ball WWE. And that sub-par Taker vs HHH match? Give me a god damn break…), you can’t really give Punk anyone else to go up against. I don’t see Punk dropping the title to anyone over the next two months, unless some insanity happens at the Elimination Chamber event, but again, who can carry a title match at Mania who’s name is not Punk or Cena (as much as I hate Cena with a a thousand hell flames, I like the angle they’re giving him right now. He’s technically still a face, but he’s doing more heel-ish things, better than his Super-Cena gimmick, although he does still stick to that…)? Triple H certainly isn’t getting another title match unless he gets gold-thirsty and wants to abuse his power in the booking department. Punk vs Jericho would be an insanely solid match with two people who’ve claimed at one point or another to be the “Best in the World.” Although, even with that, I see a stable forming, and this is going to be really far-fetched, but we’ve seen this kind of swerve before….
Stable with Jericho/Punk/Laurinitis
Remember the Attitude Era? I certainly do. There were more swerves, heel turns, face turns, tweener turns, firings and hirings, than even Penn State could handle right now. People want those days back, I don’t understand why. Booking was meh, matches were more flair than wrestling, and the only thing really great about the Attitude Era were the promos. Which brings me to the above prediction, which of course, would only happen if Laurinitis doesn’t become Ziggler’s manager after he gets fired as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations/Interim GM of Raw. I’ve been sensing a return of the stables in WWE. The tag team division is in shambles (Bourne doing his Jeff Hardy impression isn’t helping one bit…), and there’s only one other stable right now and that’s Swagger/Ziggler/Vickie, which is a sick joke. The guy’s don’t even go well together. On paper, sure, but the chemistry is off most of the time. Jericho and Punk could CLICK, I mean REALLY CLICK. If them and Laurinitis were to form an alliance, it’d be the icing on the cake to those who want the AE back, two faces with the “evil boss” like those few times Austin and McMahon worked together and when The Rock first joined the Corporation, left, and re-joined numerous times. It could work, but maybe I’m too hopeful for WWE to do something drastic with Punk. Granted, he’s been my favorite wrestler since I first saw him in Ring Of Honor and I absolutely adore him as a hardliner heel persona, I do love the Pipebomb Punk of today. I believe, that with the following he’s gathered, WWE still wouldn’t lose any merch sales from Punk (he’s number 1 as of the last time I checked, finally bumped Cena because Cena’s new shirt is terrible) if he were to go full-on heel, same with Jericho, you just love to hate the guy.
We’re more likely to see the Laurinitis/Ziggler scenario than the stable possibility, but that’d be the best route to go to stir things up right now, IMO.
AS FOR THE ROYAL RUMBLE
I have it down to a possible two or perhaps three. The third is wishful thinking. You have Wade Barrett, Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. Hear me out on McIntyre before you pass judgment: I know he was kayfabe fired on Smackdown. Good Ol’ Johnny ain’t gonna let the formerly known as “Chosen One” go away that easily. He’ll be resigned to Raw. If he could win the Rumble, he could go on to face smackdown’s champ at Mania to throw it all in Long’s face for firing him. The winner of Rumble definitely is not facing Punk/Raw Champion unless Jericho wins the Rumble and goes after Punk, I just can’t see another competitor for Punk’s title at this time. I would love to see a Barrett vs Bryan WrestleMania match, but you never know what they’re going to do with the Orton vs Barrett feud. Will it die at the Rumble? Will it continue to the chamber which both men will almost inevitably be in? Will it actually last to WrestleMania? Will there be a title involved if it DOES go to Mania? Too many variables and Orton gets bitchy with managment when he’s not at the top of the heap these days, or so it seems. He simply seems like he doesn’t want to get the new guys over. That is one thing I’ll give Cena credit for (I know it’s booking keeping a title off of him until after Mania but still….) he’s held off on the title hunt and had this small feud with Kane to last him til Mania so that people don’t forget about him. Although it would be interesting to see a Brock/Rock style training montage, with Cena in the Russian mountains from Rocky IV with a full beard grown and just come back a total barbarian. Wishful thinking though. Orton needs to help guys get over. Plain and simple.
Taker at Mania
Will we even see the Once-a-year-not-so-Phenomenal-One? If Foley doesn’t have a match with Ziggler, will we see one final encounter with the two? Or will it be Kane helping Taker reach 20-0? Will we see Taker vs HHH 3 (although it’ll be billed as 2 because WWE thinks we all forgot about Wrestlemania 17. Look back to the promos from last year, they act like it’s the first time those two ever squared off…)? Or will we see Nash step up again for his second attempt? I don’t see a “newer” guy trying to take on The Streak, Taker’s too old and too worn out to put on a competitive match with anyone under the age of 40, hell the man looked like he had a stroke halfway through the match last year, or even earlier. He simply can’t do it anymore. Might as well try to sign Sting from TNA/NWA/IMPACT whatever the hell you want to call it these days for a night and have the two biggest icons in wrestling duke it out. But we’ll never see that. It’s the dream match of all dream matches with those two in their primes.
Anyway, those are my predictions. Dispute them if you want, hate me for my remarks, if I’m wrong, hey I’m wrong, “to err is human,” and if I’m right, then cool. But I’ll enjoy watching either way.
Today, I heard her voice for the first time in nearly two years… It brought back all the same feelings and thoughts as it did before, and yet, I know it’s worthless. She chose him over me then, why would she leave him for me now? All I wanted to do was tell her I missed her and I just couldn’t bring myself to do even that, so I had an awkward conversation with her and then got off the phone and sat there, wishing I could just go find her and scoop her up like I used to and tell her that I love her. But, here I sit, pouring my heart out to no one. What a foolish person I am.
