Poll Results - Night of Champions Matches

I'll have a new poll available tomorrow, but just wanted to focus on the results of this one since the PPV is tonight.

Orton vs. Cena vs. HHH - 9%
CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy - 45%
Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler - 4%
US Title Six-Pack Challenge - 4%
Tommy Dreamer vs. Christian - 5%
Chris Jericho & ??? vs. Legacy - 26%
Maryse vs. Mickie James - 4%

I'm surprised by the lack of love for the IC/US/ECW Title matches, as I think they all have sleeper-hit potential, but it's hard to compete against something like Punk vs. Hardy. A superbly built feud, tremendous mic work from CM Punk and a sympathetic challenger like Jeff Hardy who the crowd is just begging to see as World Champ.

And then of course, people are very excited about the mystery of Chris Jericho's tag team partner. My money's still on Christian, but it could really be anyone. WWE's shown that if necessary, guys will work double-duty, so anyone already on the card is fair game, but then there's the possibility that it's someone not even on the active roster right now. Just please don't let it be Kane.

Make sure to check back later tonight to find out if Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk is indeed the best match on the card, in my full Night of Champions review!
