Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker gave his predictions for WWE No Way Out on "4th & Pain," the only wrestling radio show to be hosted by an NFL player.
In an homage to former teammate LaRon Landry, Carriker is actually in the "LaRoning Challenge" with his co-host Chuck Carroll. The first person to pick 30 matches correctly wins. The loser has to post a "LaRoning" picture on Twitter wearing a tight, bright pink shirt. The shirt must be a brighter pink than the one worn to the ring by Dolph Ziggler.
Heading into No Way Out, Carriker held a huge 18 - 8 advantage over yours truly. His dominance began with picking matches at WrestleMania. He most recently extended his lead by picking Timothy Bradley to upset Manny Pacquiao. Personally, I wonder if Carriker had something to do with the judges' decisions.
Jokes aside, here is how the Redskins starting left-end and I picked the show.
Brodus Clay vs. David Otunga

Carriker can't quite close out the "LaRoning" competition if he does well tonight, but he can come close.
In another interesting segment on the show this week, for the first time ever Carriker became the interviewer instead of the interviewee when we were joined by WWE Superstar Heath Slater. As it turns out, Slater was afraid of Vader growing up -- especially that big mask that would shoot smoke.
Listen to that interview and all the banter on the No Way Out predictions
