Picking Cyber Sunday
Let me start off by saying I went to the Eagles vs. Bears game last weekend in Philly, and I was thoroughly elated to see the Bears pull it out in the end. Speaking of Philly, I'm looking forward to seeing the boys at Monday's Raw in the City of Brotherly Love. It has been quite a while since I've seen anyone from the Raw brand, so it will be good to catch up.
Well, I'm back once again and looking forward this time to trying to make the picks that I think the people would go for. This makes it a lot tougher than normal but it will be interesting just the same. So here we go!
WWE Championship Match (Fans choose Randy Orton's opponent)
With Orton being the champion and the choices being HBK, Jeff Hardy or Mr. Kennedy, I have a feeling that Jeff Hardy will be the one chosen to fight for the gold. This match will be very fast paced with Hardy bringing everything he has to try to capture the title. Unfortunately, Orton is not quite ready to relinquish his grip on the WWE Championship, and although I'd love to see Jeff Hardy raise the gold, it's not going to happen on this day.
World Heavyweight Championship Match (Fans choose the guest referee)
Batista vs. Undertaker would be a great match by itself, but when you add in the World Heavyweight Championship and the guest referee of our choice (mine is "Stone Cold" Steve Austin), this is a must see. Batista looks stronger than ever, but when facing The Phenom, his days may be numbered. It's going to be interesting to see how the guest referee will play into this. I could see Stone Cold screwing over Undertaker and costing him this match. In my eyes, Batista will retain his title, but the battle between these two is far from over.
ECW Championship Match (Fans choose CM Punk's opponent)
I believe that this match will pit the ECW Champion against John Morrison. I think the fans may worry about Big Daddy V taking the gold, and I don't know if The Miz is quite the fan favorite yet. Punk and Morrison have had some great battles in the past and this one won't be any different. I really enjoy both of their bodies of work in the ring, but it seems to me that Punk has Morrison's number; he will retain the title and continue to be the great champion that he is.
Triple H vs. Umaga (Fans choose the stipulation)
I would love to see a Street Fight between these two, but I think a Steel Cage Match will be voted in by the fans. Either way, this match is going to be a brutal one. These two Superstars both have a great power game, and it will be put to good use when dealing with the hard steel. Triple H won the last meeting between these two, and although I'd love to see Umaga put him down for the count, I just don't think it will happen.
MVP vs. Matt Hardy (Fans choose the stipulation)
I would love to see a good old-fashioned Wrestling Match between these two. They've had many different contests to see who the better man is, and while they've been great as WWE Tag Team Champions, it will be awesome to finally see them lock up again. Originally I was going to give the edge to Matt Hardy, but I think MVP will find a way to come out with the win.
Rey Mysterio vs. Finlay (Fans choose the stipulation)
My vote is for a Stretcher Match. Although it's tough seeing the stretcher come out sometimes, this is one time when I'm looking forward to it. In fact, I'd like to see Finlay taken away on it. I've stated many times before that Mysterio is my favorite wrestler for what he is able to do inside those ropes, and this match will highlight his superior wrestling skills and high-flying abilities to their fullest.
Divas Halloween Costume Contest
Let's be honest, folks: Seeing the Divas in any of their little costumes is going to be a great thing! Since I have to pick one, I'll go with Kelly Kelly, even though she loves Balls…Mahoney, that is. Yay Balls!
Well folks, we've been dealing with some crazy weather all over this country, and I hope that you will keep those out in California in your thoughts and prayers. I have a buddy who lives on Lake Arrowhead and he's been evacuated along with over a million others. I'm sure the prayers would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you can, please keep our troops and their families in your thoughts and prayers; those, too, will be greatly appreciated. Take care.
Until next time,
Droz -- Peace
