While WrestleMania XXIV will likely be Ric Flair’s final match, there is still a chance Mr. Kennedy could defeat Flair tonight to end his career. A possible scenario that’s been reported is that Ric Flair would lose tonight to Kennedy and then come back in a few weeks to beg Mr. McMahon for a chance to have his real last match take place on the big stage of WrestleMania. This one could go either way.
As we reported earlier, Rey Mysterio’s health is still up in the air. Last week he injured his right bicep muscle and underwent testing to determine whether the muscle is torn. A tear would require surgery and keep him out of action for up to 6 months. If the injury is less severe than a tear, he could be healthy much sooner than that. Either way, we can confirm that an injury angle has been discussed this weekend within WWE to give Rey time off to recover. Look for Edge to retain the gold tonight.
With Edge expecting to retain the World Heavyweight Title, look for The Undertaker to win the SmackDown/ECW Elimination Chamber match to earn a title shot at WrestleMania. WWE has been planning Edge vs. The Undertaker for quite some time and the Rated R Superstar’s title vs. the Phenom’s WrestleMania winning streak will make for one hell of a draw.
The most likely main event for WrestleMania will be John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. Triple H for the WWE Championship. Triple H should win the RAW Elimination Chamber match tonight, securing his WWE title shot at WrestleMania. Tonight’s Orton vs. Cena match could go either way, but don’t be surprised to see a controversial finish where the loser of that match and Triple H will both claim they are the #1 contenders for the title next month.
