Predictions! When I did these over at the ROH board for pick ums I realized that these are the hardest choices that I've had to make all year. A lot of these could go any way.
Non-Title Three Way Sara Del Ray vs. Lacey vs. Daizee Haze
I'm sure this will be fine, but I don't care enough to think forward about storyline ramifications and blah blah. I'll just go with the Champ.
Triple Threat Match Matt Cross vs. The Necro Butcher vs. Jigsaw
What a bizarre three way this is. The returning Matt Cross, the versatile Jigsaw, and the crazy ass Necro Butcher. Normally I'd say the returning Cross gets a much needed win, but I just have a feeling about Necro on this one. Jigsaw takes the fall (again), and Necro punches Matt Cross for good measure.
Tag Team Scramble Jack Evans & Ruckus with Julius Smokes vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black with Lacey vs. 2 of Brent Albright, BJ Whitmer & Adam Pearce with Shane Hagadorn
A case could be made for all 4 teams getting the win here. Evans and Ruckus just beat the Briscoes, AotF have their match with them tomorrow night for the belts, Steen and Generico are back and could use a big win, and the H3 have a shot coming at the straps two shows from now. Toss up, I'll go with Steenerico announcing their return with a big win over one of the H3.
Grudge Match #2 (Castagnoli Leaves ROH If He Loses) Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero with Larry Sweeney, Sara Del Ray, & Bobby Dempsey
I was saying Claudio all the way up until the past week when ROH stopped saying that Claudio would be forced out of ROH if he lost and altered it to "Sweeney will own Claudio's contract". Now I'm more sure than ever that Hero wins, and we get a CHIKARA rerun in ROH for 08 with Claudio being a reluctant member of the Kings Of Wr....ERRRRRR..... Sweet and Sour Inc.
ROH World Tag Team Championships - 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match Jay & Mark Briscoe defend vs. Roderick Strong & Rocky Romero
This one is tougher than it should be. Normally I'd call for Briscoes in two straight, but there are other factors at work here. There is a stipulation in the bank for the AotF match tomorrow should they lose the belts tonight, the NRC are LEGIT contenders, and this match actually is on PPV. I'm still taking the Champs, but with no real confidence what so ever.
Relaxed Rules Bryan Danielson vs. Takeshi Morishima
I have no idea who to take here. Either guy could win and it would make sense. My guess is that Dragon snaps and goes nuts with a chair or something. I'll take Danielson, for no real reason I can think of other than a wild guess.
ROH World Title Match Nigel McGuinness defends vs. Austin Aries
Easiest choice of the card. Nigel is back, is teasing a heel turn, has matches against rivals for the belt set in January, and is fully healed. Aries puts up a hell of a fight, but Nigel KO's him with that lariat and retains.
I expect to be right on .... 0% of these, btw.
Patti Mayonnaise Real Name: Bumkiss. Stanley Bumkiss.
Grudge Match #2 (Castagnoli Leaves ROH If He Loses) Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero with Larry Sweeney, Sara Del Ray, & Bobby Dempsey Winner - Chris Hero
Tag Team Scramble Jack Evans & Ruckus with Julius Smokes vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black with Lacey vs. 2 of Brent Albright, BJ Whitmer & Adam Pearce with Shane Hagadorn Winner - The Hangm3n

The anticipation is killing me!
What a weekend this is gonna be....
Wii Friend Code = I haven't turned on my Wii since May 17, 2008. Worst console of my lifetime. *My playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance is not an endorsement of the company with the worst editor-in-chief of all time. I just want the easy 1250 points
