“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (inducted by “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase)

“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels (rumored to be inducted by Triple H)
Last year I started a tradition where I would pick who would win the match and in what order the matches would be. I am happy to say I was 7-2 in who would win, but a dismal 0-9 in the order of the matches. This goes to show you that the WWE must know better than me on where a match should be placed.
Anyway, that will not deter me, as I am again going to pick who will win and in what order the matches will be. Its on with the predictions:
Keri Hilson will perform “America the Beautiful.”
Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes
This should be an entertaining match as Rey can electrify the crowd with his high flying skills. Cody is a good wrestler, who on any day can beat most wrestlers. Today will not be one of them as I see Mysterio winning by a disqualification. I think Sin Cara (mystico) will make his WWE debut.
United States Championship Match
Daniel Bryan will vs Sheamus
Its power, Sheamus, versus high flying/high energy, in Daniel Bryan. Sheamus destroyed Bryan the last time they met. Sheamus is bigger and stronger than Bryan, but Daniel could wear down Sheamus. In the end, it will be the Sheamus, and his strength that actually wears down Daniel Bryan with a three count.
World Heavyweight Championship Match
Edge versus Alberto Del Rio
“The rated R Superstar” Edge, and his faced pace action, will put his title on the line against the up-and-coming Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio has an extensive background in wrestling, his father is legendary Don Caras and his Uncle is the great Mil Mascaras, so Alberto should have no problems keeping up with Edge. The winner of this match will be Del Rio.
Eight-Man Tag Team Match
Big Show, Kane, Vladimir Kozlov & Santino Marella versus The Corre (Wade Barrett, Ezekiel Jackson, Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel)
The Big Show can dominate. The Corre is great when they can gang up on an opponent. The loose link in this match in Santino Marella. He has matches where he can wrestle very good, and then he has matches that are stinkers. Which Marella match is this going to be? I think it will be the Big Show and his group defeating the Coore.
Randy Orton versus CM Punk
This match pits “sick and twisted” individuals, one is more twisted than the other. Both can wrestle, while Orton is the stronger of the two. CM Punk won’t have the members of NEXUS with him as Orton had to beat each of them to prevent them from being at ringside. Punk got the better of Orton lately, but in the end Orton will prevail.
Jerry “The King” Lawler versus Michael Cole with Jack Swagger in Cole’s corner as his personal trainer. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will be the guest referee
Somehow, I don’t see Cole busting any moves in the ring. He was able to put the ankle lock on Lawler and JR on Raw two weeks ago. I do see Swagger getting involved as to prevent Cole from getting the crap beat out of him. In the end “Stone Cold” will beat up on Swagger and Lawler will beat up Cole for the win.
No Holds bar match with The Streak” on the line
Triple H versus The Undertaker in a no holds bar match (There is talk Shawn Michaels will be in Triple H's corner)
Ten-years and two days ago, at WrestleMania X-Seven, these two legends fought an 18:17 match. It was an outstanding duel, and as well all know it was The Undertaker who won to extend his streak to 9-0. Does anyone think that Triple H has a chance. Yea, he has a chance, but, he isn’t going to win. It will be The Undertaker to choke slam Triple H to go 19-0.
6-Person Mixed Tag Team Match
Lay Cool and Dolph Ziggler versus Trish Stratus, John Morrison and Snooki
This match was made when Snooki beat up Vickie Guerrero two weeks ago on Monday Night Raw. Ziggler has been doing a number on Morrison. Trish is looking better then ever. To me this match is a handicap match, do really think Snooki is going to wrestle a lot? The Jersey Shore native might not wrestle much in this match, but she will get the three count over one member of LayCool.
World Championship Match
John Cena versus The Miz for the World Championship
“Fan favorite,” John Cena goes against the most underrated star in the WWE, The Miz. Talent wize, Miz has Cena beat hands down. Its ironic for a wrestler who can wrestle like The Miz to have a sidekick, Alex Riley, interfering in the outcome of his matches. Tonight though, it will be someone else who will interfere in this match to help The Miz win. I see The Miz retaining the Title if you smell what The Rock is cooking???
There you have my predictions.
Who do you think is going to win this years matches??
