Will NostroJOEmas strike again a la Night of Champions, or will I fail miserably like I did when I predicted The Great American Bash? We’ll find out, because here are my WWE No Mercy predictions!
WWE Championship: Triple H (C) vs. Jeff Hardy
I thought for sure that Jeff cost himself the WWE Championship when he was removed from a flight for appearing intoxicated a few weeks back, but with reports that Hardy is not facing any diciplinary action, and the fact that he’s been booked to look strong on TV since the incident, I could be wrong. However, the other thing that the last couple of weeks have said to me is that Vladimir Kozlov is next in line to face Triple H, and as such, I fully expect a no contest tonight with Kozlov standing tall at the end of it.
World Heavyweight Championship: Chris Jericho (C) vs. Shawn Michaels in a ladder match
I just can’t see HBK winning this match, given that there’s going to be a number one contenders match on the card featuring two guys that have heat with Jericho. By hook or by crook, Jericho wins this one.
ECW Championship: Matt Hardy (C) vs. Mark Henry
With this prediction, I’ll officially be declaring that I don’t expect a world title to change hands tonight. If Mark Henry was destined to be champion after No Mercy, they would have had him retain in the Championship Scramble at Unforgiven. Sorry Mark, I’m glad you got a pretty decent title run, but it’s the elder Hardy’s time to shine.
The Undertaker vs. The Big Show
It’s been pretty widely reported that The Undertaker is in pretty bad shape. He’s likely going to need some time off to let his injuries heal, so I’d venture to say that something will happen tonight to have ‘Taker written out of the story for a little bit. As such, I predict a Big Show victory.
World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contenders match: JBL vs. Batista
Batista is going to take this one. Not taking anything away from JBL but with Jericho likely to win the ladder match tonight, I’m fully expecting Batista to be the number one contender.
Kane vs. Rey Mysterio – if Rey loses, he loses his mask
Rey Mysterio is one of the most popular superstars in the WWE among a few key demographics, particularly the younger set. Unless the publicly traded WWE suddenly decided that they’re making too much money off of Rey Mysterio replica masks and want to unload what’s left of them at rock bottom prices, I’m fairly certain that Rey Rey is winning and keeping his mask. What is this, WCW?
WWE Women’s Championship: Beth Phoenix (C) vs. Candice Michelle
Let’s go with Candice… BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, Candice is going to win this match. Candice, whose return match was luckily taped because the WWE can’t edit botched spots out of live broadcasts, is NOT winning the Women’s Championship. Bring on the Fabulous Moolah meter, because there’s virtually nobody on the roster right now who deserves that title more than The Glamazon.
