WWE's Judgement Day comes to us this Sunday with their monthly PPV. Six matches have been confirmed so far and four of them are title matches. I expect one or two more matches to be added but we'll have to see what happens.

Here are my predictions, and if you don't agree or you do, feel free to comment about it and let me know what you think.


CM Punk vs. Umaga

Umaga and Punk have had a mini feud going lately with Umaga stopping Punk from cashing in his MITB against Edge on a recent Smackdown show. Punk lost to Kane at Backlash and I don't expect them to put Umaga over as it would make it seem like the MITB winner is weak.

Winner: CM Punk


Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho (Intercontinental Championship Match)

Rey Mysterio was recently drafted over to SD along with Chris Jericho and the feud was something that many people are loving to see between two of the best high flyers in the business.

Rey might not be the high-flyer he used to be due to injuries, but I still think him and Jericho can put on a four star match if they are given enough time. I actually expect Mysterio to win, by DQ.

Winner: Rey Mysterio (Retains Title)


John Cena vs. Big Show

This feud started when Big Show threw Cena through a spotlight and cost him his championship, and recently, Show has attacked Cena on Raw in recent weeks.

John Cena is the biggest wrestler currently in the WWE, and I don't expect them to put Big Show over Cena, I mean, Big Show never wins on Pay Per Views. I expect Cena to win and begin his run towards the championship again. Winner: John Cena

Jack Swagger Vs. Christian (ECW Championship Match)

Christian just won the title recently and I don't expect them to take the title off of him this soon.

Now, I might be biased because I think Swagger is very good, but I see him being the future of the company, but I don't think he needs the title to succeed, I think he can be a good chaser. Christian wins and this feud continues. Winner: Christian (Retains Title)

Jeff Hardy Vs. Edge (World Heavyweight Championship Match)

Edge just won the title at Backlash and although the title has been bouncing around lately, I don't think the WWE wants to take the title off of him this soon, and if they would, I don't think it would be to Jeff Hardy, which I will write about later so be sure to read that article too!

Anyways, Edge will win here and the line of challengers will begin to line up, and in my opinion, the man who takes the title off of him, might need the fans to open their eyes and see.

Winner: Edge


Randy Orton vs. Batista (WWE Champion)

Randy Orton is the hottest thing going on in wrestling right now, has a strong stable behind him, and it seems like he can't be stopped. Batista is an injury prone superstar who just returned back from injury.

Now do you really expect Batista to win? Randy Orton wins here and I eventually see Cena taking the title off of him, but not to soon, as I want Orton to have a very good run.

Winner: Randy Orton


So that wraps up my JD preview, I have all four championships being retained and Orton stopping Batista to retain his title.

Now many people are saying CM Punk will use his MITB after Edge's match or Orton's, but I don't really see him cashing it in and if he does, I don't expect him to win.
