TNA Lockdown 2012 Predictions
TNA Lockdown pay-per-view
One of my favorite matches in pro wrestling is the steel cage match. When an entire pay-per-view consists of steel cage matches, wrestling fans take notice. Lockdown is one of TNA's biggest pay-per-views for this very reason. Take a closer look at my predictions for TNA Lockdown 2012.
Matt Morgan vs. Crimson
Crimson is (sort of) carrying an undefeated streak, a la Goldberg and Samoa Joe. For some reason, TNA has not hyped this Lockdown match very much which leads me to believe Crimson's streak will continue.
Prediction: Crimson defeats Matt Morgan
Robbie E vs. Devon (Television Championship)
Predicting who "should" win a pro wrestling match and who "will" win a pro wrestling match are two completely different things. Still, Devon must defeat Robbie E if TNA Lockdown is to have any credibility.
Prediction: Devon defeats Robbie E
Velvet Sky vs. Gail Kim (Knockouts Championship)
The two areas in which TNA is far superior to the WWE are tag team wrestling and female wrestling. I think this Lockdown match is easy to call. Velvet Sky will win due to Madison Rayne costing Gail Kim the title.
Prediction: Velvet Sky defeats Gail Kim
Motorcity Machine Guns vs. Magnus and Samoa Joe (World Tag Team Championship)
Due to injuries and breakups, tag team wrestling has experienced a lull recently in TNA. Magnus and Samoa Joe have been nice transition champions. However, Lockdown will restore legitimacy to the tag team division.
Prediction: Motorcity Machine Guns defeat Magnus and Samoa Joe
Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle
Kurt Angle has reportedly pulled out of the Olympic wrestling trials due to an MCL injury. I keep waiting for TNA to cancel this Lockdown match, but it's still on. Therefore, Jeff Hardy is sure to win so Angle can take time off to heal.
Prediction: Jeff Hardy defeats Kurt Angle
Team Eric vs. Team Garett
If Team Garett wins and Eric Bischoff just runs TNA from behind the scenes, smarks would criticize the promotion relentlessly. I can't see that happening. Lockdown will see Garett Bischoff leave for a while.
Prediction: Team Eric defeats Team Garett
Bobby Roode vs. James Storm (World Heavyweight Championship)
This Lockdown match is hard to predict. Both Roode and Storm are hotter than the sun right now in TNA. This rivalry would be best served by letting each occasionally defeat the other. It's James Storm's turn to be champion.
Prediction: James Storm defeats Bobby Roode
Patrick Michael lives in New Orleans and has always been a big fan of pro wrestling. Patrick's favorite wrestling organization was Mid-South Wrestling back in the 1980s.Patrick's favorite wrestling angle of all-time was the NWO and his favorite wrestler was Roddy Piper.
