Beth’s Judgment Day Picks

May 17, 2009   ·   0 Comments

Be advised, there’s really no logic involved in who I pick. But then there’s no logic in WWE booking….so that makes us even.

* John Morrison vs. Shelton Benjamin
Shelton has sort of grown on me lately. He’s always been good in the ring and his mic skills aren’t as bad as some would like you to believe. I can see them going with Morrison here to continue the build up of his face character. I just hope they give them enough time.

* Umaga vs. CM Punk
So shoot me. I love Umaga. It’s probably a good thing I’ll never have enough money to go to Samoa. 🙂  He’s been getting the upper hand on Punk for weeks now, so I doubt it will continue tonight. I do think they’ll find a way to screw Punk though. The show is in Chicago, and unless your name is Cena, you’re doomed in front of the hometown fans.

* The Big Show vs. John Cena
What a waste. Show is fatter than he’s ever been. He’s blown up by the time he reaches the ring these days. I have no idea where they could go with this feud, regardless of who wins.

* WWE IC Title Match: Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho
Rumor has it that this is the start of a long term feud. Maybe…maybe not. Rey is anything but sturdy. I’m assuming that since Jericho is the creative force behind this feud that he has some clever tricks up his sleeve. I’m not a huge fan of the whole “mask” storyline. It’s been done to death in wrestling. But with Rey, where else do you go? It hardly matters if Chris wins the IC belt or not. But it always makes for a better feud if the heel has the strap. And watching him walk around smugly bragging about his nine IC titles would be worth a win here.

* ECW Title Match: Christian vs. Jack Swagger
I honestly don’t get the Swagger love. Yeah, he’s big and we know that’s what Vince loves. But IMO he still has so far to go. There are far worse guys than Christian to learn from. I say keep the belt where it is.

* WWE Title Match: Randy Orton vs. Batista
Randy was the hottest act going after The Rumble. So WWE logic says, job him out to Shane McMhaon and his tiny fists of fury and then put him in two of the dullest feuds imagineable. He needs to keep the belt and he needs to go back to being psycho Randy. And it wouldn’t hurt to let Ted and Cody start kicking some major ass too.

* World Title Match: Edge vs. Jeff Hardy

Edge absolutely needs to keep the belt. Why they turned him into the poster boy for transitional champions I’ll never know. And I’m not a Jeff Hardy fan by a long shot. He’s a major talent, but he’s missing something, that to me, spells champion.
