WWE Extreme Rules Predictions and Preview

Chris JeterContributor IJune 7, 2009

Here are my predictions for today's Extreme Rules pay-per-view. Note that this is NOT based on inside information.

Randy Orton vs. Batista in a Steel Cage match for the WWE Championship

This should be the end of this feud as a one on one program. Somehow, legacy will interfere. Orton will retain the title by escape and Triple H will be added to this feud.

Edge vs. Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match for the World Heaviweight Championship

The build-up to this match has been great. It almost makes me believe that Hardy could win tonight. However, with Jeff's contract status in limbo, I don't see Hardy winning the title tonight. Edge will win with some sort of interference.

John Cena vs. The Big Show in a Submission Match

Because this is John Cena that were talking about, he will find a way to apply the STFU and pick up the victory AGAIN (I'm a Cena fan and I'm tired of it).

Christian vs. Tommy Dreamer vs. Jack Swagger in an extreme rules match for the ECW Championship

The added stip is that Tommy Dreamer will walk away if he doesn't win tonight. This will be Dreamers swan song as an in ring performer. Swagger will pin Dreamer for the title and continue his feud with Christian.

Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio in a No Holds Barred match for the Intercontinental Championship

Rey getting the upper hand on SmackDown probably means we will see a ninth Intercontinental reign for Jericho. However, I don't think he will remove the title yet. The should give Jericho the strap and the do a hair vs. title match to culminate the feud.

C.M. Punk vs. Umaga in a Samoan Strap Match

Since the announcers are basically saying that Punk has no chance, Punk will find a way to win. Plus, with Punk being Mr. Money in the Bank, he needs the win more than Umaga does.

Kofi Kingston vs. MVP vs. William Regal vs. Matt Hardy for the United States Championship

Should be a fun opener if it is the opening match. Kofi just won the title, so there's no reason to take it off of him right now. He will either beat Hardy or Regal. 

Santina Marella vs. Vickie Guerrero in a Hog Pen match

I don't care who wins this match. It will probably be Santina. As long as this match is short and painless.
