No Way Out Predictions

David LloydCorrespondent IFebruary 11, 2009

ECW Championship Match: Jack Swagger vs. Finlay

Theodore Long has signed Christian Cage. All I can say is, wow.

And now, Christian will challenge the victor of this match for the ECW title. I was looking forward to this match beforehand, and now can’t wait to see what develops.

First of all, Hornswoggle will be roaming around, looking to cause havoc for Jack Swagger. Also, it is impossible to think Christian will not get involved in this match in some manner. 

I think Swagger will be able to overcome all odds and successfully defend his title, (suffering succotash!)  This will set up a nice feud for the two, and help Swagger, and ECW gain some popularity.

Winner: Jack Swagger

All or Nothing Match:  The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels vs. JBL

Shawn Michaels has a lot of built up frustration from being JBL’s whipping boy the past few months. He took out some of that aggression Monday Night against Mark Henry. 

I think Shawn will have a chance to put this match away after giving JBL a little Sweet Chin Music, but his emotions will get the best of him. 

Instead of going for the pin-fall, he’s going to look to hit it again. Only the second attempt will miss.

This will give JBL the momentum, but no matter what he does, JBL won’t be able to defeat HBK. Shawn will be determined to do whatever it takes to win. He will not give up, he won't be pinned, and will never submit.

After JBL carries the momentum, HBK will pummel him with everything he has got. There is no way HBK can lose this match. The storyline would be forced to continue, and I think we’re all ready for Shawn to move on to bigger and better things for WrestleMania.

Winner: Shawn Michaels

No Holds Barred Match: Shane O’ Mac vs. Randy Orton

Something’s gotta give here, folks.

Since Shane’s return, he’s looked more invincible than John Cena. First, it was the ridiculous punches that knocked out the entire Legacy. 

Then it was the kendo-stick attack, which once again took out Orton and his boys. 

Then, Shane was able to foil the Legacy once again on Monday night, although the Undertaker helped him out with a chokeslam or two. Shane looked a little unsure of himself as he took to the top turnbuckle to jump across the ring.

But something just doesn’t seem right about all of this. There has to be some underlying plot twist that none of us can see. 

It reminds me of the Attitude days, of the PPV where Vince screwed Mankind out of the title and helped the Rock become the champ and the new face of the Corporation. 

I personally think Shane will align with Orton’s Legacy, although it wouldn’t make sense for it to be Sunday at No Way Out. 

I’ve read thoughts to the contrary that it will be Stephanie McMahon. Or could it possibly be Vince McMahon?

After a beating the life out of Shane with everything Orton can get his hands on, look for some kind of interference, followed by an RKO and his trademark punt to the head.

Something tells me Orton will stop looking so cowardly against the kid from the mean streets of Greenwich, Connecticut on Sunday.

Winner: Randy Orton

And now ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for predictions that are sure to go wrong!  Two titles, two elimination chambers, and 12 Competitors. Anything can happen.

WWE Championship: Edge vs. The Undertaker vs. The Big Show vs. Triple H vs. Vladamir Kozlov vs. Jeff Hardy

I could see Triple H and Vladamir Kozlov starting this one out as the first two men in the ring. The two will go back and forth until The Big Show enters and dominates both competitors due to his sheer size. 

The Undertaker will then enter to even things out a bit. I imagine he’ll focus heavily on The Big Show due to what happened at the Royal Rumble, and he is a big threat.

Jeff Hardy and Edge will then enter, in no particular order. There will definitely be a lot of action, and a nice spot by Jeff Hardy, who is always revolutionary. 

Edge and the Undertaker are my picks to be the last two men standing. I could see Edge winning, as it would just be another quick title switch.

But 'Taker is headed towards WrestleMania 25, in his (and my) hometown, with his undefeated streak on the line. It would be great to see him walk into WrestleMania 25 as the champion. 

Winner: The Undertaker

World Heavyweight Title: John Cena vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Mike Knox vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Kane vs. Chris Jericho

I could see Rey Mysterio and Mike Knox starting this one out in the ring.  These two have some history, and it would make sense for them to square off. 

Kofi will probably be the third, and the two will team up on Knox. The match will really get going as Kane and Chris Jericho enter the chamber. Mysterio should deliver some great spots and take some big risks. 

I just think the writing is on the wall for this chamber. As much as I like Chris Jericho and Kane, they will probably not win this chamber.

It’s hard to believe that the other three competitors will be able to defeat the virtually unbeatable Cena. The good news is, Orton will wipe the floor with John Cena at WrestleMania 25.

Winner: John Cena
