WWE Night of Champions: Predicting the Winners of Every Match
The WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view is this Sunday night and there are a lot of questions about what several of the outcomes are going to be.
Come Monday morning, there is the possibility of having six new champions in the WWE along with a new COO. These are my predictions for every match at Night of Champions.
Tag Team Championship: AirBoom (c) vs. the Miz and R-Truth
It looks like the WWE is finally making a strong push to recreate their Tag Team Division and this match could be the jump start that the division needs.
Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne just won the titles and have been anointed with the team name of AirBoom. It looks like the WWE is giving the two a strong push, but their challengers, The Miz and R-Truth, have been getting an even bigger push.
This match should be exciting and it is the one that I'm looking forward to the most Sunday night, but I see the heels of the match coming out on top to begin a rivalry between the two teams.
Winners: The Miz and R-Truth
Divas Championship: Kelly Kelly (c) vs. Beth Pheonix
Hopefully this rematch from SummerSlam won't last too long as I think we would all rather see more time put into the other matches.
A few weeks ago I would have said that Beth Phoenix had the upper hand and was going to win the time, but after this past week when Kelly escaped from Beth, I think that the WWE is going to continue to give Kelly Kelly her push as Divas Champion—at least until Hell in a Cell in two weeks.
Winner: Kelly Kelly
US Champ: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Jack Swagger vs. Alex Riley vs. John Morrison
In this fatal four-way, the one contestant that we can completely count out is John Morrison. He hasn't been involved in the United States Championship at all and it wouldn't make any sense if he were to win.
That leaves the tangled web of Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Alex Riley. Ziggler and Swagger have been feuding over the idea of who is Vickie Guerrero's client or clients, and Riley has been getting victories over both of them.
I see Swagger and Ziggler hurting each other in this match which will give Riley the chance to sneak away with the pin and his first championship belt.
This way, Ziggler can get rid of the mid-card belt and once his problems with Vickie are sorted out, he can insert himself into the main event picture on RAW.
Winner: Alex Riley
Intercontinental Championship: Cody Rhodes (c) vs. ??
The Intercontinental Championship has yet to be announced at Night of Champions, but I would have to imagine that whoever Cody Rhodes faces, he will defeat.
Rhodes had a big win against Randy Orton on Monday night and it looks like he is going to get a big push as the new Intercontinental Champion.
He will probably end up facing Ted DiBiase or some other mid-card Superstar on the SmackDown roster, but whoever it is, Cody is going to come out on top.
Winner: Cody Rhodes
World Heavyweight Championship: Randy Orton (c) vs. Mark Henry
The World Heavyweight and WWE Championships have been passed around at a ridiculous pace the last few months. This Sunday night, I once again see the World Heavyweight Championship changing hands.
You would think that Randy Orton would hold on to the title for some time after winning it back from Christian at SummerSlam, but Henry's push is far too strong. Henry has been dominating everybody he faces and Orton has yet to get the best of the World's Strongest Man.
I see a feud that should last two or three months between these two starting this Sunday after Henry comes away with his first World Championship.
Winner: Mark Henry
WWE Championship: Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. John Cena
The last couple of weeks, John Cena has seemingly had the upper hand in this feud. Cena hit the Attitude Adjustment on Del Rio two Mondays ago, and this Monday Cena and Bret Hart took down Del Rio's personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez.
All signs point towards Cena coming away with the victory on Sunday, but I am going to go ahead and guarantee a win for the Mexican aristocrat.
Del Rio needs the Championship about a million times more than Cena does at Night of Champions. Del Rio needs legitimacy as Champion and if he were to lose it now, he would never be looked at as a true Champion.
Also, the WWE is about to do their tour of Mexico and they will definitely want Del Rio to be the Champion when they head down South.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Triple H vs. CM Punk
The possibilities are endless for this one.
CM Punk could win clean. Triple H could win clean. The Miz and R-Truth could show up and team with CM Punk. Miz and Truth could show up and team with Triple H. Miz and Truth could show up and beat up both Triple H and Punk.
Those are just a few of the options that could occur this coming Sunday, but I don't believe that any of those options will occur. I bet that we see the return of Kevin Nash at Night of Champions.
When CM Punk said that he thought that Triple H and Kevin Nash were acting and they were in cahoots the whole time, I believed him. I think that the punch in the ring, the "footage from the Staples Center" and the firing of Nash was all a setup.
This Sunday, look for Nash to make his return and team with Triple H to take out Punk. This way, Triple H will secure his position at COO in this no-disqualification match and Punk has yet something else to drop a pipe bomb about on Monday night.
Winner: Triple H
I hope you enjoyed, and share your thoughts!
