World Heavyweight Title TLC Match: Jeff Hardy(c) vs CM Punk

WWE Title Match: Randy Orton (c) vs John Cena

D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) vs Legacy (Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr.)

My Predictions:

Let me start off by saying that this may be one of weakest cards on paper that I have seen at Summerslam in a very long time.

I think MVP should beat Swagger, but the push that Swagger is getting confuses me because there are more talented and more experienced wrestlers who deserve it.  Ultimately, I am going to have Swagger win this one.

In the Khali/Kane feud, almost everyone I talk to thinks the sooner this ends the better. I would love to see another Kane/Taker feud, but that probably will not happen for a while. This will be a very telling point in the WWE career of Khali. If he doesn’t look good losing to Kane tonight, I would not be shocked to see him gone from the company.

The tag team of Jericho and Big Show has been a really nice addition to the lack luster tag team division in the WWE. In a post I will do later this week, I’ll rate the tag teams in the WWE and TNA and do a tournament to see who would come out on top so keep a look out for that. With almost no storyline put into this match, I can’t see Cryme Tyme winning the match, so I’ll give the nod to Show and Jericho.

The Christian/Regal match is the one I am most intrigued by. I have been waiting a while for Regal to get some kind of push and I really like the dynamic of this match. Christian usually gives a good match and Regal should provide a formidable opponent. If I was to book this match, I would have Ezekiel Jackson and Vladomir Koslov come into to distract Christian and Regal to roll him up for the victory. I think Regal will take this one.

I will be the first to admit it: I was unimpressed by Dolph Ziggler, but he has grown on me. He is very technically sound and I feel they may need to truely develop a new star and I think he is ready to take the title from Mysterio.

The TLC match is going to be a very interesting match. In the WWE’s struggle to be more PG, how in the world does a TLC match, which is one of the most dangerous matches, fit into that category? I think both men will do very well and make the match work in CM Punk’s favor. I just think this match might be a little much.

Cena/Orton 800 is the match I care least about. At this point, I do not care who wins this match. I just hope one loses to Jericho in the next few months because I am really tired of seeing the title cycle between 3 or 4 guys. I think Orton will keep the title.

I had a feeling about 3 or 4 months ago that we could see DX again and I feel like this is perfect timing. It puts another tag team, which I feel could take the titles, on the map and its nice to see Rhodes and DiBiase as something other than Orton’s lackeys. I think DX is going to take this one.
