World Wrestling Entertainment's new pay-per-view event, WWE Breaking Point, will take place this Sunday, Sept. 13 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The newly named event will feature a special theme, with all the main event bouts being submission matches. The card has seven matches scheduled, and on paper it looks like a very solid show.
Singapore Cane Match: The Great Khali vs. Kane
Kane and The Great Khali will have their second pay-per-view encounter in a row, but this time things have been spiced up a bit with the addition of the Singapore cane.
However, don't expect the match to be much more entertaining then it was at last month's Summerslam. Kane looks like he could be in line for a possible push, so I think it's safe to say he will walk away with the victory.
United States Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. The Miz
This match was announced late this week, after The Miz picked up a pinfall victory over the U.S. Champion on the WWE Superstars show on Thursday.
With the ever-exciting Kofi Kingston battling the up-and-coming Miz, I believe this match could be the best match on the undercard. As for a prediction, Kofi Kingston will hold on to his strap.
Prediction: Kofi Kingston
ECW Championship: Christian vs. William Regal
Although their match at Summerslam ended in almost a blink of an eye, its safe to say this match will get more time, and more appreciation. This bout could also be a potential show stealer, supposing they are given a proper amount of time.
As for a prediction of the winner, this one is tough to call. Christian could walk out victorious this Sunday, and move on to a new feud. However, it could be interesting to see William Regal win the ECW title and become the top dog on ECW.
Prediction: William Regal
Unified Tag Team Championship
In my opinion, this feud has been the best over tag team gold in recent memory. On one side you've got Chris Jericho, who has shown that he can put on an entertaining match with just about anyone, and the Big Show, who has been paired nicely with Jericho.
The challengers are a perfect fit for the Unified Tag Team Champs, Montel Vontavious Porter and Mark Henry. During this bout, expect to see a lot of MVP battling Jericho and Big Show colliding with Mark Henry in a battle of the titans, as we have seen the last several weeks.
Hopefully, this match will be the first of a few between these two teams, but for this Sunday the champions will walk out of Montreal with their gold.
Prediction: Big Show & Chris Jericho
Submissions Count Anywhere Match: Degeneration-X vs. Legacy
For the first time ever, a Submissions Count Anywhere match will take place. These two teams stole the show at Summerslam, featuring a lot of twists and turns of momentum throughout the match.
It's almost a lock that this match will be just as exciting, if not better. Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes are two of the company's greatest prospects, and they proved that in their encounter with two of the world's best of all time in Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
Even though Legacy enters the match with the momentum, I believe good ol' Degeneration-X will make them submit somewhere the Bell Centre and the Canadian-American border.
Prediction: Degeneration X (Triple H & Shawn Michaels)
WWE Championship I Quit Match: Randy Orton (c) vs. John Cena
This will be the most heated battle of the night, and it will only end with one man uttering the words "I Quit". Randy "The Viper" Orton and John Cena had a controversial match at Summerslam, ending in several different occasions only to be restarted.
While I expect this match to be nothing less than classic, I believe there's a bigger picture to this match. Although WWE seems to have put it on the backburner, Ted Dibiase's brother, Brett DiBiase, did interfere in the Summerslam confrontation and did promise to never do so again in the future.
I believe he could play a major role in the outcome of this match. Although it is almost impossible to see John Cena to say those two words he has never let slip out of his mouth, I don't see him winning the title at this Sunday's pay-per-view event.
With some sort of complication, possibly an interference by Legacy or Brett Dibiase, Randy Orton will somehow slither away with the WWE Championship in his grasp yet again.
Prediction: Randy Orton by some sort of complication
World Heavyweight Championship Submission Match: Undertaker vs. CM Punk
The Straight Edge Superstar has taken everything from Jeff Hardy. His title, his pride, and even his job as a WWE Superstar. But with the shocking return of The Phenom, The Undertaker, could CM Punk's time on top be in extreme jeopardy?
Undertaker took four months away from the ring after putting on arguably the greatest match of all time with Shawn Michaels at the 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania last April. The result of this match could go either way, and is very difficult to predict.
I don't believe the WWE would tag the World Heavyweight title on the Deadman immediately after his return, but like John Cena, it's near impossible to imagine him submitting.
This feud might need more development, so it is possible CM Punk could retain the title somehow. However, due to Undertaker's submission history, I believe he is the favorite heading into this main event confrontation.
This feud could possibly continue, only with the Undertaker as the World Heavyweight Champion.
Prediction: The Undertaker
WWE's new creation, Breaking Point, will prove to be an excellent show this Sunday. All the main events will end with one superstar giving in to his opponent.
The winners could surprise, new champions could be crowned, and some could reach their own personal breaking point.
