DX © vs JeriShow: Unified Tag Team Titles
Randy Orton vs Kofi Kingston
Guest Host: Bret “Hitman” Hart
This looks to be an excellent show if WWE allows it to be. Hopefully JeriShow beats DX because Hunter and Shawn don't need the tag straps. If Edge is able to return, the smart move would be for him to reunite with his “brother” Christian and go up against ex-partner Chris Jericho and Big Show at WrestleMania XXVI. Keep in mind Edge suffered an Achilles injury last year. That's not exactly something you can just bounce back from. Having Edge in multi-man/tag team matches is the best way for him to get reacquainted with being in the ring.
As for Orton vs Kingston, I really think they should have saved this for WrestleMania. They should have Orton punt Kofi and put him out of commission until Royal Rumble. Then, Kofi could eliminate RKO. After that, the two rivals could face off as part of Raw's Elimination Chamber match in February. That could then lead to the big blow off match between the two at Mania. I love slow burning feuds that build up to a huge payoff. I'm not saying this can't be a special moment, but it would be that much greater at Mania. Either way, the result must be the same. Kofi Kingston needs this win no matter what.
Of course, it will be extremely interesting to see what Bret Hart does on Raw. Will he confront HBK? Will he interfere in the DX match?
Wrestling fans, you're in for one hell of a night!
