Vengeance Prediction Post

Sheamus v. Christian - This has been an outstanding rivalry so far. Some people have questioned why these two have been feuding at all, but in a rare nod to the WWE's roster use, they seem to have found themselves with more contenders than they have belts. Certainly not all of those contenders are popular with the fans, sure, but at least they recognize that these two competitors are not benchwarmers. There's been quite a bit of back-and-forth, and lately, Christian has been extra ruthless. Despite Sheamus' ability to keep coming back at him, Christian will surely just keep hitting harder until something sticks. Ali's Pick: Christian

Triple H and CM Punk v. The Awesome Truth - John Laurinaitis took a page out of Teddy Long's "Tag-Team ALL The Matches!" Playbook for this one, but then again, it was a pretty obvious booking without it. With the show taking place in San Antonio, I'm wondering if we'll see some backstage antics from one Shawn Michaels. Either way, as much fun as this match is going to be to watch, this is just the start of an ugly war, and The Awesome Truth have more allies than their opponents, one of whom is the acting General Manager of Raw, who loves him some textin'. Ali's Pick: The Awesome Truth

Cody Rhodes v. Randy Orton - Ohhhh my how much fun is this going to be? Cody is on a roll lately, and now he's turned his incredible reign as the Intercontinental Champion into a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the Viper. This match does not appear to be for the Championship (it could still be added last-minute, but don't hold your breath), but that does not mean that it does not hold as much merit as a title match. Cody is not only on a mission to better his former friend, but also to bring legitimacy back to the title he holds. A win against a former world champion and fan favorite would certainly accomplish both those goals. Ali's Pick: Cody Rhodes

Beth Phoenix v. Eve - Sigh. I know what I'd like to see, but I also know how this company treats it's women. Which is unfortunate. Ali's Pick: Eve

Air Boom v. Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger - Evan Bourne is supposed to be cleared before this match happens, but Vickie's crew is tighter than ever. And don't think that a HEEL like Ziggler is going to forget about his recent injury. I can almost guarantee that he and his partner will work Evan's neck for the majority of the match. Air Boom should put on a good show, but not much else. The more dominant heel team have an amazing manager to back them up. Ali's Pick: Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger

Dolph Ziggler v. Zack Ryder - This should probably be one of the shorter matches of the night, probably the second shortest right up behind the Divas match. Hopefully it won't be too short, however, and we'll get to see some decent work from Zack Ryder. You can certainly expect Ziggler to underestimate his opponent, as he doesn't think he's worthy in the first place, and that is where his downfall will lie. Ali's Pick: Zack Ryder

Mark Henry v. Big Show - Powerful return from the Big Show, and an even more powerful message sent last night when he laid out his opponent for Vengeance with the WMD. Henry will finally have his hands full, but I still don't see this belt coming off the World's Strongest Man so soon. Ali's Pick: Mark Henry

Alberto Del Rio v. John Cena - Last man standing. You know, I'm actually not really sure how to call this one. John Cena has been seen using some... questionable methods to win this match before, but Alberto Del Rio is nothing if not crafty. And an escape artist. Also, it will be his chance to actually beat John Cena and put that man in his place. I've said before, if anyone on the current roster can beat Cena clean, it's Del Rio. Not that I'm expecting a clean finish, I'm just saying. Ali's Pick: Alberto Del Rio
