Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website, in which he discusses the brand split, the future of superstars like Jack Swagger, Batista, & Chris Jericho, and more. Below are his predictions for Night of Champions:
-HHH beats CM Punk in the no disqualification bout thanks largely to the stipulation. Not sure how much WWE plans to have HHH wrestle so this is a viable opportunity for fans of ‘The Game’ to tune in on what could be a rare bout by the future WWE HOF’er.
-Alberto Del Rio has had a somewhat quiet WWE Title reign thus far but ADR can change that by defeating John Cena Sunday night. However, I see Cena winning in what I think will be a PPV closing bout.
-Mark Henry is on a roll and I think he beats Randy Orton to win the World Heavyweight Title.
-Buffalo native Beth Phoenix will win the Divas Title from Kelly-Kelly or so I am predicting.
-Air Boom, nice handle, retains the Tag Titles against The Miz and R Truth much to Michael Cole’s dismay.
-I see both Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes retaining their titles at NOC as well.
