– Jim Ross has updated his WWE Universe blog. Ross speaks on next week’s tapings, Jerry Lawler and more plus his predictions for this Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view. Here are Ross’ predictions:
The Khali Kiss Kam….may scare small children and make even “The Fink’s” hair raise. I’m begging for a closed mouth, Hollywood kiss.
C.M. Punk vs. Kane….two Smackdown wrestlers face off and I have to give the nod to “The Big, Red Machine” in this one even though Punk’s Muay Tai strikes might lead to a “Chicago Made” win.
Jericho vs. Steamboat….I love Ricky Steamboat and have all the respect for him in the world but unfortunately Jericho doesn’t and will likely win this match. I hope that I’m wrong.
Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy….Who will say “I Quit?” I’m guessing Jeff Hardy finally beats his older, insecure brother.
Jack Swagger vs. Christian….be careful of wrestlers with only one name, JACK! Christian left WWE for a long “hiatus” and returned to win titles so here’s Captain Charisma’s chance. If Christian doesn’t win Sunday his road back to the Promised Land will go from being a freeway to being a gravel road.
WWE Title Bout….this is a unique way, to say the least, to put the WWE Title on the line and almost impossible to predict. Until someone beats The Game, he’s my pick but Randy Orton has become a huge star, has momentum, and even has his share of fans. Orton will no doubt be WWE Champion again but will his next reign start this Sunday?
World Title Bout….Did Edge essentially win the title Monday night after scrambling John Cena’s brains with a concharito? That’s what I’m thinking plus Edge is a desperate man who is down to his last chance to come out on top of Edge’s biggest rival. I give the “slight lean” to Edge in this one but I’m rarely right and suggest that you do no wagering.
