Smackdown went down the hill and into the ocean over a year ago. There's some good talent there but they're overshadowed by stupid story lines.

Anyway, what's everybody's thought on whose going to win it? I'd say definately not a ECW guy, nor SmackDown. I think someone like Orton has a shot to win it? :-?

BTW Venomous Prime, that is a GREAT sig! :grin:


Thank you, I thought about leaving out the WWE's WCW logo, but then decided to keep it. Just looked bare without it.

I'd really like Kevin Thorn or CM Punk to win the Rumble, but like you said, there is no way an ECW guy is going to win.

Shawn Michaels, entering around the #12 position, to win the Rumble.

Edge will eliminate Orton or vice-versa, they'll then lose the titles on Raw

Cena to retain against Umaga.

Batista to retain and hold the title until Wrestlemania where he'll defend against Undertaker.

Test to defeat Lashley to gain the ECW title. Let's face it, Lashley does a better job chasing, though does anyone actually care about the ECW title? No? Thought not.

Here's what I see playing out at RR.

Kali takes the Rumble and faces Cena at Wrestlmania for the title.

God help us all that could be the worst WM main event since Goldberg Vs Lessner.

I'm sorta hoping to see Kennedy vs Taker vs Batista at Mania, but I doubt it.

As for ECW.....Thorn really needs a better push, as near as I can tell him and CM Punk are the only two generating any buzz.

I leave RVD out of that because even if he blows the roof off of every arena they are never gonna put him over again after the drug incident, at least not this year. Vince usually puts you in the dog house for a year, RVD's year isn't close to up.

Oh and I have to ask how aweful were the Nitro Dancer wannabe's on ECW this week? Oh god never has three good looking women dancing looked so spasdic.

Notice the blank looks on their faces as their music was cut?

Priceless!

But the "rumour" going around is with it being the 20th anniversary of WM3 they were going to have him face Hogan, in an attempt to recreate or pay tribute to the Hogan/Andre match from WM3.

Frankly if that's the case i'd rather watch Khali/Cena. :?

Hogan...Khali...Cena...

Its sad to say, but I'd rather watch Hogan and Khali. Cena is funny out of the ring, but that dude does not have it in the ring. Not saying Hogan and Khali do, but Hogan is the lesser of the two evils

gentalmen...and ladies, (i don't know of any that post for this paticular topic) forget about raw, and smackdown, and ecw, and even tna impact. for i saw a wrestling program last night (or this morning, depending on where 12:00 am lies) that changed my life. its called wrestling sociaty x. i was amazed at these atleats. and there was no story. no one used a mic. the only talking was from the anouncers and the trash talk from the wrestlers. there where people going through tables left and right, and some one got electrocuted (maybe not for real but it sure looked cool). i never thought i'd willingly watch mtv since they cancled beavis and butthead and celebrity deathmatch. but that was the best wrestling i saw in a long time. check it out this tuesday at 10:30

Well ... the Rumble is done with. (Be warned, spoilers be below!)

Hardys/MNM - Good match as always from these guys. The "It's over"/"No it's not" exchange at the end has me hoping they have a HUGE match at Wrestlemania.

Test/Lashley - huh? What? oh ... yeah, didn't pay much attention really. Pathetic finish that's for sure.

Batista/Kennedy - Is it me or is Batista getting worse each week? What a waste for Kennedy.

Cena/Umaga - Wow, Cena pulls off another underdog win. Whoopdeedoo. And after McMahon told him he wouldn't. What are they going to do? Have a Cena/McMahon thing like Austin/McMahon? Geez I hope not. Credit to Cena though for taking so many blows. Shame he's still boring to watch and Umaga didn't help.

The Rumble - Fairly good match. Had HBK pegged to win but wasn't suprised to see it come down to him and Undertaker and Taker eventually winning. Great to see Miz fly into the ring and promptly fly straight out.

Overall I think I probably should have gone to work and just downloaded it or just read the results. Definitely not one of the best ppv's as of late but they did set up enough feuds for down the track.

Give Taker a run with the title, for old times' sake. For all the IWC rags on him, he is a legit legend in wrestling. I'm gutted we're probably not going to get Cena/HBK though.

if that happens then ole vince has really taken a big step to the looney bin Taker is still over with the fans his entrance music gets more of a pop than Batista half the time.

Thou for the wrestlemaina match i think it'll be a triple threat match Batista vs Kennedy vs Taker with Taker pinning Kennedy so Batista can say he was never pinned to loose the title.

I don't think he will turn heel though, and I'd be quite happy with Face vs. Face. The crowd would likely be behind HBK anyway.

Even watching half of RAW is sorta painful now a days.

I tell you, I could almost swear Vince secretly hated wrestling or something. I know some are thinking in a mocking way "oh yeah, he must really really hate the thing that makes him the most money in his life and go out there to brag about it." How many times did he try to venture into something else and have it blow up in his face (body building, football league)? Now you have him in a retro frame of mind, AGAIN prioritizing people with looks which could mean excess muscles (Lashley, Masters), height (Khali, Kozlov), or outright bimbos (any diva search winners, runner ups) all of whom had little or no genuine interest in "wrasslin'." But who of them would say no to the prospect of a contract that probably pays $50,000 & up and not have to go through the traditional breaking in to their industry those who genuinely want to be there would have to endure. They only want to use the WWE as a catalyst to do other things much like how the Rock and Stacy Keibler used the WWE for and walked away without looking back.

Negative outlook aside, let's look at the general negativity from tonight. Khali made Jeff Hardy look like an inexperienced jobber with a toy belt all the while Khali wrestled like fecal matter as usual. Val Venis apparently got beaten down by a "wounded" Umaga. Yeah, like even one of the 7 year old Cena fans didn't know who'd come out of that one looking good. Sean Morley (Val Venis) should have someone else make decisions for him as he evidentally doesn't have the sense to realize the WWE will keep him in his outdated, pornstar gimmick and job him to everyone whether it be on their internet program or their cable TV program. 4 or 5 minute matches on either show makes no difference in that he's still a very low priority. Surprised to READ that Cryme Tyme actually lost for once and to TWGTT. Well, I guess that means some poor booker/Hollywood hack is going to lose his job as that actually looks like something gone right. Lord knows the WWE gets to where they don't like that to happen.

In all, I sure do miss the Attitude era, and Fox's 24 on a non wrestling night when it wasn't hard to get good quality TV viewing done in a week. Just because it's occured to me as a thought means I should probably worry about it happening for real. But if Vince ever gets cocky enough to believe that the fans only wants his sense of humor as their entertainment, he might up and run one of his shows without an actual wrestling ring in the building one day. Just a thought though.

Batista has never lost the World Heavyweight Championship in an actual match. He relinquished the title in January 2006 due to multiple injuries. The title was put up for grabs in a battle royal on that week's SmackDown which was won by Kurt Angle (a first, given that he was a RAW superstar at the time).
