WWE Predictions: Three 2012 Predictions Sure to Go Horribly Wrong
Shhhhhh! It's a secret! Every so often I like to predict things that are destined never to happen.
Yes, I'm the guy that actually said Val Venis would be a world champion in the WWE. I'm the guy that always thinks there is a chance that the Undertaker will lose at WrestleMania. I'm even the guy that thought Hornswoggle was the next Stone Cold Steve Austin. OK, the last one is not true, but I have been know to make my share of bad predictions.
Let's continue that trend with these three fun, little scenarios that are sure to go wrong. It's my destiny!
Ted DiBiase Will Finally Get over with the Fans

How many failed attempts on getting over can a guy get before the WWE gives up on him? If the answer is somewhere around 300, then Ted DiBiase is running out of chances.
Legacy couldn't do it. The Million Dollar Championship couldn't do it. Maryse couldn't do it. Will being the lackey to Cody Rhodes finally do the trick? I say yes!
The lackey has been a popular stepping stone in the WWE over the years, with Alex Riley being the last to somewhat capitalize on this opportunity. If Ted plays his cards right, he could be the next.
Cody Rhodes is skyrocketing to the main event scene, and Ted should be able to ride his coattails to popularity. Cody does the talking. Cody gets the heat. All Mr. DiBiase has to do is find the right time to turn on his mentor and BOOM, instant popularity.
A Returning Mick Foley Will Once Again Win the WWE Championship

Remember the pop Kevin Nash got when he returned at this year's Royal Rumble? Let's step it up a notch!
Mick Foley has left TNA and had already been rumored to return to the WWE in some capacity. Word is he has already been dropping weight in anticipation of a match of some sort.
Imagine for a second that Mick Foley returns to the WWE at the 2012 Royal Rumble as Cactus Jack. He gets eliminated and then later returns to the Rumble as a later participant as Dude Love. Once again, eliminated. Finally, around entry 30 he returns once again as Mankind and miraculously wins the Rumble.
From there he goes on to WrestleMania to defeat the Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match, thus ending the streak. Foley! Foley! Foley!
The John Cena Heel Turn Finally Takes Place

How long has this been rumored? I believe I first caught wind of the possibility that Cena would return to his heel-ish ways while reading the book of Genesis.
Listen, Miami is not going to be kind to Cena during WrestleMania. The crowd will chew him up and spit him out.
The reaction will be similar to how he was treated by the Chicago crowd at the Money in the Bank PPV. The only difference is that WrestleMania is the grandest stage of them all, and there is no better place for the WWE to make the rumored impact of a John Cena heel turn a reality.
Imagine the heat this man could receive when he even makes the women and children hate his guts. The Rock is eye candy for the ladies and a Hollywood star to all the little Jimmies out there.
Whether they know it or not, they are invested in the Rock. He would be the perfect opponent to seal the proverbial heel-turn deal!
No Crystal Ball Here

OK, so I really don't have a crystal ball and these predictions are not very likely to come to fruition.
Maybe my optimism comes from the rose-colored glasses I look through, or maybe it's more like I'm the class valedictorian at the school of the blind.
What are some things you want to see but really don't expect? What are some things that you hope doesn't happen but predict they will?
As always, comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks for reading! God bless!
