I personally feel the WWE Creative team really screwed up on Jeff Hardy's title reign. I could recall everyone being surprised or excited to see Hardy as the WWE Champion as it was something people thought wasn't coming for at least another six months, but he did it. He's the most over guy in the WWE right now and him only getting a one month reign is kind of a slap in the face to him really.
Without that I feel Edge is probably gonna hold the belt going into Wrestlemania and will do some sort of program with Triple H, as I know he'll make himself get into that match. Also, I do see Triple H winning because I remember reading somewhere that he was once a little angered because he hasn't won a World Championship at Wrestlemania in years now.
I don't want to see Triple H as champion as he bores me, and we've seen it time, and time again but I'm pretty certain he'll be holding the title some time down the track in 2009. As for The Undertaker, I say no, I do no want to see him as the champion because he doesn't really even entertain me as much as he once did.
So seriously, in 2009 I only see Edge, Triple H, Jeff Hardy and maybe a draft pick or two win the title this year.
