WWE Unforgiven Match Preview
September 16, 2007
This is promised to be a night full of exciting events, dramatic returns to the ring and revenge-driven matches. Unforgiven will be broadcasted live tonight at 08:00 pm ET (05:00pm PT) from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee
For John Cena this night will be special in more ways than one: For one on 09-17-2006 he became the WWE champion, if he can maintain his title tonight against RKO, Randy Orton, he will be The Champ for a full year by tomorrow. The last time the WWE had a champion keep his title for so long was back in the 1988-1989, when “The Macho Man” Randy Savage held on to the Championship for 13 months!
The question is however, will Cena be able to keep his mind on the belt or will he be to pre-occupied by the wish for revenge on RKO for injuring his father at ringside by an dramatic kick to the head?
For Randy the match will be just that, a match in order to hopefully regain a championship and to destroy yet another legend. This rather impressive young man seems to be only interested in winning the match and, if possible, to destroy a wrestling legend, no emotional strings attached.
While revenge can be a strong motivation, it might sidetrack John Cena too far to keep him focused. The match tonight might be the highest risk for his championship ever.
For Randy Orton this might be the night where his strategies finally pay off, if he can insult Cena and his father enough to get Cena into the state of mind to forget all his intentions, he might win the belt. Of course, if he pushes Cena too far, to the point that he loses all control as he did just a week ago on Steven Regal, the new GM of Raw, he might leave the match on a stretcher.
The Triple Threat Match for the Heavyweight Championship
This should be a very interesting match to watch, the Great Khali, 7”3, 420 pounds of mass against Rey Mysterio, 5”6, 165 pounds and Batista, 6”6, 290 pounds of determination. While Rey’s signature move the “619” is rather successful, Khali’s brain crushing grip, which he developed over the last few weeks, will match anything and pretty much destroy anyone. While each competitor often surprised us, we really don’t know what to expect here, besides a lot of pain to be inflicted.
What else can be expected? Carlito and Triple H “The Game” will take on each other in the ring, Carlito claims that he wants to be end Triple H’s career tonight in a no disqualification match for Carlito but triple H can be disqualified, don’t seem actually fair to us, we’ll see about that…. The old saying: An Apple a day will keep the doctor away might just not work here tonight...
The Undertaker will return tonight and take on the self proclaim “Silverback” Mark Henry the worlds strongest man. This match too should be rather interesting.
ECW’s Champion CM Punk, who recently won the belt in a match against John Morrison, will take on Elija Burke. While Burke is a very dedicated and skilled wrestler, to defeat CM Punk when the championship is on the line might be harder to do than he might think.
World Tag-Team Championship Match: Paul London and Brian Kendrick take on Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch (Raw) for the gold.
Tag Team Championship: Deuce and Domino (with gum-chewing, roller-skating Cherry) will go against the current tag team champions MVP, Montel Vontavious Porter and Matt Hardy. The two unlikely tag team-partners, MVP and Hardy, forced into being a team by the GM Teddy Long, are sure to entertain us in their struggle to work together inside the ring.
Of course we will be able to enjoy a match of the Divas as well, Candice Michelle will defend her Women’s Championship title against Beth Phoenix, who won this opportunity in an All Divas Battle Royal at Summer Slam 2007.
In the previous year Trish Stratus had won the belt at Unforgiven in her final match before she retired.
For those who will not watch the matches, we’ll do our best to bring the play-by-play report to you tonight, after the last match is over.
