Royal Rumble Prediction Poll: McCool vs. James – VOTE!

This is the second of a series of polls I’ll be running all week for the five matches at the Royal Rumble. The poll is at the bottom of this post. Two on Sunday. Three on Monday.

The three month feud between Smackdown’s Women’s Champion Michelle McCool and number one contender Mickie James comes to a head at the Royal Rumble next Sunday, January 31st. I have really liked this feud. It’s the best and most memorable women’s feud probably since Trish/Mickie, which was four years ago now. They usually don’t devote this much time or tell this much of a story involving the women. I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The question is: Who’s going to win?

If Michelle wins: The feud continues likely into WrestleMania where Beth Phoenix could be inserted to make it a triple threat match, which would be the culmination of a long feud that has seen Phoenix toe the line between heel and face a few times.

If Mickie wins: The torment she’s suffered from Michelle and Layla calling her “Piggy James” has led to plenty of confrontations that have usually led to Mickie getting beat up. If she wins the belt the fans are happy that the tortured babyface has overcome the obstacles to win the Women’s title for the 5th time. Question is, would the win be better here or at WrestleMania?

I’m going with Mickie winning, but I’m torn. If Michelle wins I’m fine with that too because it’ll mean Mickie gets the belt at WrestleMania. This story still has legs. I just think they’re ready to do the title switch now.

    No Option for a No Contest? That’s what I think will happen, with Beth Phoenix interfering and destroying both of them.

      Good call. I added a No Contest/DQ option for those that want to pick that.

    I would rather see McCool keep the title. My booking would have her win by DQ or other heel means. Have Beth screw Mickie and then set up Beth vs Mickie matches until WM, giving MM time to heal from those nagging injuries. Between the RR and WM, have MJC trying to get to MM, only to constantly be stopped by BP. MJC could be shown talking to Beth, she could say that they’ve never been friends, but that MJC has always respected BP as woman and athlete and she is now no better than MM. BP could be shown to be contineously torn. Have a couple of matches that MM loses by DQ to keep her title. We get to WM and have a no DQ stip or maybe the ref bumps. Layla and MM double up on MJC until Beth comes in to help the heels. She, in fact destroys Layla and hits MM with the Glam Slam. MJC wakes up thinking Beth is going to attack her only for Beth to pat her on the back and leave. Astonished, Mickie smiles at Beth and then stands ready. MM gets up, turns around and eats a Mick Kick for the pinfall loss. This match should get at least 10 minutes. Thanks for letting me ramble. God, this a good feud.

    Can I vote for “Who cares?”

    I’m going with McUndertaker mainly because I’m not completely sold that WWE is completely sold on Mickie right now.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if MJC won though.

    Mctaker win with the Mc-syles clash to end a really bad mc-segment. Ain’t that mc-cool. MJ wins at Wrestlemania

    I predict Mickie James-Canton-Hempel winning.

    I see a DQ/schmozz finish of some sort. Title switch at Wrestlemania, MJC possibly winning there, but I’m curious how the music career develops and how much longer we’ll have MJC to watch.

      If she leaves I retire from writing. Maybe.

    I think McCool wins due to Layla’s involvement. This then leads to Mickie getting pissed off and taking her frustration out on Layla in big way. Sort of like when Lita beat the crap of Trish. McCool then realises she may have pushed Mickie too far and tries everything to avoid her, including getting Beth Phoenix to take her out (to no avail). This would then lead to a Wrestlemania Triple Threat and the title win for Mickie.

    I’d LOVE to see Mickie lose at the Royal Rumble due to Layla’s involvement, resulting in Mickie James returning to her psycho gimmick and taking out Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix, Layla, and Maria. Then on the next SmackDown, Mickie apologizes to Maria, thus keeping Mickie face and bringing back her FANTASTIC psychotic gimmick. Mickie stalks Layla and Michelle leading to a WrestleMania title win for Mickie James.
