WWE Night of Champions card and thoughts.

Triple Threat match for the ECW Championship: Kane (c) vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry
WWE Championship: Triple H (c) vs. John Cena
World Tag Team Championship: Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Ted DiBiase and TBD
World Heavyweight Championship: Edge (c) vs. Batista
WWE Diva’s Championship: Natalya vs. TBD
This match will inaugurate SmackDown’s WWE Diva’s Championship by determining the first champion.
WWE Tag Team Championship: John Morrison and The Miz (c) vs. Finlay and Hornswoggle
WWE United States Championship: Matt Hardy (c) vs. Chavo Guerrero
WWE Women’s Championship: Mickie James (c) vs. Katie Lea Burchill
WWE Intercontinental Championship Chris Jericho (c) vs. TBD

The biggest question at this point is who will fill the blanks in some of these matches.  Three matches are missing an opponent.  Here are some possibilities:

WWE Divas title:  After this week’s Smackdown Six Diva tag match that Vickie Guerrero paid next to no attention to, I would think that the front runner to face Natalya is Vickie’s “wedding planner”  Alicia Fox.

WWE Intercontinental title:  The big guess is that Shawn Michaels will make a dramatic return to beat down Chris Jericho.  Another possibility would be a heel swerve by Jericho in which he lays down and lets Lance Cade pin him.  In one move, it puts over Cade, gives him a belt to get over, and frees up Jericho to feud over the World title.

World Tag Team Championship:  Assuming Ted Dibiasie’s partner will also be a second or third generation wrestler, there are a few possibilities in WWE.  It could still be DH Smith, and his draft move was just a swerve.  Cody Rhodes could be bought off and turn on Hardcore Holly.  Or, flying under the radar are two other 2nd generation wrestlers.  Deuce, recently traded to Raw, is the adopted son of Jimmy Superfly Snuka.  Also, Jesse from Smackdown is the son of the late Freebird, Terry Gordy.

We’ll find out tomorrow night.
