I really don't get this decision. At least Morrison vs Ziggler had a week's build. This match just comes out of nowhere. So they had Swagger, Carlito and Miz all claim to be the next champions, and then they had a fatal four-way really early that killed that plotline. And now just The Miz is getting a shot, and it's not even announced on RAW? Why? This does make me wonder if it's finally The Miz's time, though. It's just a shame that, if they would have built it better, it might have meant more.

John Cena. I just can't see him saying "I quit" after he guaranteed victory and then was left laying so definitively at the end of the last RAW before the PPV. Not to mention his whole gimmick is fighting and never backing down. I just can't see him saying "I quit."
World Heavyweight Championship - Submission Match
Champion CM Punk vs. The Undertaker
I'm going to go with the dark horse here, the choice of a new generation, the first-ever straight-edge world heavyweight champion in history, CM Punk. I honestly don't see Taker tapping out either, but I think Hobbes' idea of the match ending due to Taker being knocked out would work. It would really suck if Punk got the title taken off him yet again so quick.
Champion Christian vs. William Regal with Vladimir Kozlov & Ezekiel Jackson
Christian overcomes the odds and keeps his title.
Submissions Count Anywhere Match
Shawn Michaels & Triple H vs. Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase
DX win in yet another close encounter.
Unified Tag Team Championship
Champions Chris Jericho & Big Show vs. Montel Vontavious Porter & Mark Henry
I honestly think this is just a one-off to keep Jericho/Show busy for when they feud with DX. The result that would most surprise me about this PPV (outside of Cena saying "I quit") would be MVP and Mark Henry becoming tag champs.
Singapore Cane Match
The Great Khali with Ranjin Singh vs. Kane
Why is this on the card? I honestly don't even care. Uh Khali I guess.
"Leaping Lanny and Randy Savage are brothers, and Randy Savage, your name is Randy Poffo. THAT'S RIGHT, RANDY POFFO. You're ashamed of going around calling yourself Poffo so you probably got the name Savage because you're ashamed of putting yourself on the same level as your brother because he is much better than you are. YOUR BROTHER IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A SCUMBAG. THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE; YOU'RE A DOG. YOUR NAME IS POFFO." - Ronnie Garvin to Randy Savage, ICW Wrestling, 1980.
