WWE Predictions: Over The Limit

We're spending the weekend in Chicago so the Brewers recaps will be coming a little later, so in the meantime I figure I'd leave you with something you'd rather have - WWE Predictions! This weekend's pay-per-view is "Over the Limit", and for the first time in a while I will not be ordering this one. The fact that I regularly get these says a lot about why I'm 26 and single, but when it comes down to Lost vs. the WWE, Lost is going to win out every time. Sigh, I'm a loser.

R-Truth vs. Ted DiBiase (w/Virgil) - A decent midcard feud that has Ted DiBiase following in the footsteps of his father, the Million Dollar Man. The result of this feud came to be when DiBiase was looking for someone to be his sidekick, similar to how the Million Dollar Man had Virgil had his sidekick. Virgil is actually back in DiBiase Jr.'s corner, so it wouldn't be out of the question for him to swerve on the fortunate son and side with R-Truth. But I think the angle works best if DiBiase picks up the win, so that's what I'm going with.

Eve vs. Maryse for the Divas Championship - Maryse is the more recognizable Diva, but Eve just won the belt from her a few weeks ago. I don't think they take it back from her this soon, Eve for the win.

The Hart Dynasty vs. The Miz and Chris Jericho for the Unified Tag Team Championship - The Miz and Chris Jericho both have been Tag Team champions lately, each of them partnered with The Big Show. Now, they are going for the title together, and I'm really not sure which way this will go. I don't really expect title changes on this show, but this could be the one that does switch hands as it's usually better television for the good guys to be chasing the belts than having the bad guys do it. But with Bret Hart's increasing presence, and him just winning the United States Championship from Miz, I could see the Hart Dynasty's luck continuing. In the end though, my beer gut is telling me to go with Miz and Jericho.

Randy Orton vs. Edge - Former tag team partners have somewhat of a score to settle, as Edge recently cost Orton the WWE Championship, and Edge is bitter that the fans haven't embraced him the way they have Randy Orton. I'm going with Edge in this one, allowing the hot feud to continue.

Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk - These guys will be battling for what seems like their 8th straight pay-per-view, but they always put on a good match so no complaints from me. If Punk wins, Mysterio has to join his "Straight Edge Society", a group of people that preach a drug-free life. Trust me, it's more intense than it seems. But if Mysterio wins, Punk has to shave his hair. Ooooooo, right? Well, as much as I think Mysterio joining the SES would be great television, I kind of see Punk losing here and shifting to a new feud. I don't know though. Credit the WWE for having some matches without clear outcomes on this card.

Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental Championship - McIntyre has been the IC Champ for awhile now, but he recently had the belt revoked when Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long fired him. Well, apparently McIntyre got reinstated thanks to Vince McMahon, as Drew often claims to be Vince's "chosen one". McIntyre revealed this to Long about two minutes after Kofi won the IC belt as the result of a four-man tournament. Not only did McIntyre get reinstated, but he got the belt back without challenge. Naturally, this match is a result. I'd like to see Kofi lose actually so that they can get him into a feud with Jack Swagger for the Heavyweight belt, and even if McIntyre does lose, he'll snake his way out of it, at least that's what we've been trained for. I'm going with McIntyre.

Jack Swagger vs. Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship - So apparently Big Show is a babyface now, good for him. Despite losing to Kofi on Friday Night's Smackdown, I'm enjoying Swagger's title run right now and don't want that to end. I don't think it will, at least not to the Big Show. The Big Show serves a purpose, but he should not be given a belt at this point, although now that people like him I'm afraid the WWE may want to do that. I still think Swagger retains though.

John Cena vs. Batista for the WWE Championship - Again, two guys that have been wrestling each other way too much lately. Not entirely sure how this one will play out, as there has been a lot of speculation that Batista is leaving the WWE with his contract expiring soon. That would mean an obvious victory for John Cena. But the WWE does like to throw curveballs now and then, so I wouldn't be surprised if somehow Sheamus walked out of here as the champion. Sheamus has been in the middle of this feud for the last few weeks now, and I think he'd have to play a role in this match too. Bullet to my head though, I say this match ends the show, Cena wins, and the crowd goes home happy.
