Prophecies of The Tocc

No Mercy 2008

Beth Phoenix vs. Candice Michelle

Women's Championship

Prediction:Candice Michelle
Prophecy:It looks like Candice is picking up where she left off when she was injured with a huge push. I suspect the only reason Beth won the title in that mixed tag match was to transfer it back to Candice. But will Candice win it back here or perhaps at the next PPV? Tough to tell.
Result:Beth Phoenix wins

Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy

WWE Championship

Prediction:Jeff Hardy
Prophecy:When in doubt, go with HHH, but I just feel like it's Hardy's time. HHH has been acting strangely lately - almost too elitist and fake. It's as if he knows his reign is coming to an end. I thought Hardy might be shuffled off into a feud with Koslov but since Koslov is attacking HHH as well it's clear he's just a wildcard. Maybe his involvement will lead to HHH dropping the belt. Then Koslov can feud with HHH since they seem to be avoiding a HHH - Hardy feud so far.
Result:Triple H wins

Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels

Ladder Match for the World Championship

Prediction:Shawn Michaels
Prophecy:Maybe HBK really is looking to retire and wants one more run with the title. If that's the plan, the fact that Jericho won the title out of nowhere at Unforgiven would make perfect sense. This feud is old now, so if a title change is going to happen, it should happen here so they can move on.
Result:Chris Jericho wins
0 Points Awarded

Batista vs. John "Bradshaw" Layfield

Winner Becomes No. 1 Contender for the World Championship

Prediction:John "Bradshaw" Layfield
Prophecy:The winner here almost certainly depends on the winner of the World Championship match, and I'm still not sure about that one yet. For now I'm leaning towards the face in that match so I'll lean towards the heel in this one.
Result:Batista wins
0 Points Awarded

Matt Hardy vs. Mark Henry

ECW Championship

Prediction:Matt Hardy
Prophecy:Mark Henry is still referring to himself as "The World's Strongest Champion", but there's no compelling reason to give the title right back to him here. Hardy will legitimize his championship reign with a clean win over the World's Greasiest Man.
This is my lock.
Result:Matt Hardy wins

Big Show vs. Undertaker

Prophecy:Taker needs his "receipt" (as Shane-O-Mac said on Raw). However, I'm reminded of Taker's feud with Khali. It seemed like he got dominated by Khali match after match until he finally turned things around and won the feud in the end. Perhaps this feud will have a similar formula and Show will take the opening match. I guess we'll find out.
Result:Big Show wins
0 Points Awarded

Kane vs. Rey Mysterio

Prediction:Rey Mysterio
Prophecy:For some reason I don't give a crap about this feud. It was built up with that burlap bag for a long time, but the impetus for the feud was all just a story. We didn't get to witness any of it. They've been bulding this up as a situation where Rey can't win, so typically that means he will overcome the odds. However, now they've thrown in the stipulation that Rey will have to unmask if he loses. He was unmasked for a while in WCW but after that he started getting really serious about his lucha libre history and his mask. But has anyone else noticed that his masks are getting smaller lately? They don't cover the back of his head. I'm starting to doubt my pick...
Result:Rey Mysterio wins
