Rick T. – TONS OF FUNK.

Robert D. – TONS OF FUNK.

Wade B. – Rhodes Scholars are probably the most entertaining thing in WWE these days, but we all know what's going to happen here. CLAY, TENSAI, AND COMPANY win, dance like idiots, cash their checks, the end. The most watchable aspect of this match will be the glasscutters the cold weather gives the girls.

Jordan B. – FANDANGO.

Ryan R. – CHRIS JERICHO.

Bob Z. – FANDANGO!!!

Rick T. – RYBACK.

Robert D. – RYBACK.

Wade B. – As much as I like Henry, I think they've had the "WM Moment" idea of Ryback picking him up for Shellshock all along. RYBACK wins. 2 to 1 says he botches it.

Jordan B. – RYBACK.

Ryan R. – RYBACK.

Bob Z. – RYBACK.

Roger M. – RYBACK.

Mike T. – THE MIZ.

Chris Petta – THE MIZ (why this is on the pre-show is beyond me).

Rick T. – MIZ.

Robert D. – WADE BARRETT.

Wade B. – The IC's on the pre-show and Cesaro and the US title are nowhere to be seen. Way to book your mid-card titles, WWE (sarcastic clapping). I think they want a good vibe going into the show, so MIZ wins the IC title.

Jordan B. – WADE BARRETT.

Ryan R. – THE MIZ.

Bob Z. – MIZ.

Roger M. – THE MIZ.

CONSENSUS: THE MIZ 16-4.

Roger M. – TEAM HELL NO.

CONSENSUS: DOLPH ZIGGLER AND BIG E LANGSTON 11-9.

Mike T. – DEL RIO.

Chris Petta – JACK SWAGGER.

Rick T. – DEL RIO – Ziggy cashes in to become the WHC.

Robert D. – DEL RIO – Then Dolph cashes in.

Wade B. – WM really spotlights just how secondary this title really is. DEL RIO retains. P.S. Del Rio, please go back to your original theme music. I can't drink my champagne to what you're playing now.

Jordan B. – ADR.

Ryan R. – ALBERTO DEL RIO.

Bob Z. – ALBERTO DEL RIO.

Roger M. – ALBERTO DEL RIO.

Singles Match for the WWE Championship

Anthony V. – CENA.

Matt O. – JOHN CENA.

Darragh O. – JOHN CENA.

Gary H. – JOHN CENA.

Mike T. – CENA.

Chris Petta – JOHN CENA.

Rick T. – CENA – then a Cena heel turn.

Robert D. – CENA. I think it is time Cena wins the title. But won’t shocked if Rock won.

Wade B. – This couldn't be more obvious if WWE published the script for it online two years ago. CENA wins the title, and his Year of Redemption continues. Hopefully next year the champion going in will do us all the honor of soiling his hands and actually wrestling on basic cable.

Jordan B. – JOHN CENA.

Ryan R. – CENA.

Bob Z. – CENA wins then will pour some fruit pebbles and milk over the Rock and start eating them off of him, while saying "These are too good to waste".

Roger M. – JOHN CENA.

CONSENSUS: JOHN CENA 20-0.
