Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

I know I said I'd post this on either Tuesday or Wednesday, but I won't be around on those days, so I'll just post this now. Backlash will probably be posted next week, got a couple more matches to do. Anyway, here's some news and the Backlash preview, feel free to predict using the template below. Cheers.

wwe.com –

WWE has come to terms of the release of Paul Burchill and Alicia Fox as of today May 2, 2009. WWE would like to wish them the best of luck in all of his their endeavours.

wwe.com –

After weeks of demanding competition, Vladimir Kozlov will get his wish this coming Sunday, as per orders of SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long – Vladimir Kozlov will face off against a handpicked opponent.

pw.net –

WWE are apparently toying with the notion of unifying the WWE Women’s Championship and the WWE Divas Championship and having the Divas be able to appear on both brands. The WWE Divas Championship has, in the eyes of many, failed to be recognised as a prestigious championship, the design doesn’t help.

Rumours have been swirling throughout the week as Vince McMahon, Chavo Guerrero and Rey Mysterio were spotted in Mexico the past week. Apparently, after Chavo taped his match on Tuesday for SmackDown, the three men flew down to Mexico, where they had lunch with three unknown businessmen. This has led to speculation that the WWE is interested in forging a working relationship with one of the top Mexican Promotions, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) or Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion (AAA) . TNA had a working relationship with CMLL through 2007 to the beginning of 2009, but that relationship was cut, the reason is unknown. According to a source backstage, WWE is looking for a huge angle to take us throughout the Summer to Survivor Series and this may just be it.

On wwe.com we saw that Vladimir Kozlov was announced to have an opponent at Backlash, but he won’t know his opponent. A source backstage has told us that the opponent is not a current member of the main roster, nor the developmental roster. However, we do know that he is a former WWE Superstar and is a former WWE United States Champion and has challenged for the WWE Championship before leaving the WWE.

WWE Backlash
Date: May, 3rd 2009
Arena: TD Banknorth Arena
Location: Boston, Massachusetts

WWE Championship – No Holds Barred
WWE Champion Triple H vs. The Viper Randy Orton

It’s personal...

The WWE Championship is the most prestigious championship in the WWE, it stems back to 1963, since then some of the greatest Superstars in WWE history has held the title. Both men want to be WWE Champion, but this match isn’t just about the most prestigious belt in the company – it’s personal.

Many people may think this rivalry started at the beginning of two thousand and nine, but that is far from the truth – this actually begin all the way back in two thousand and five. Back then, it was very different, instead of being enemies, they were friends – involved in the WWE group known as Evolution. At Summerslam 2005, Randy Orton became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history when he defeated Chris Benoit for the belt. While this was the greatest moment in his short career, so far, it all came crashing down when Triple H, Ric Flair and Batista turned on Randy Orton and kicked him out of Evolution; eventually Orton would lose the belt to none other than Triple H.

Fast forward to today, Randy Orton has his own group, all most a mirror image of Evolution. Randy Orton has stated however, Evolution was used primarily to keep the World Heavyweight Championship around Triple H’s waist, while Legacy is about respect for each other. A man Randy Orton has no respect for is Vincent Kennedy McMahon, Orton attacked Mr. McMahon – punting him in the head and then targeting Shane McMahon and then Triple H’s wife, Stephanie.

This kicked off a mega feud between the two. Triple H has invaded Randy Orton’s home, Randy Orton has kissed his rivals wife, but Triple H managed to defeat Orton at WrestleMania, retaining his WWE Championship. But it wasn’t over, Randy Orton demanded a rematch, and he got it when he defeated Kofi Kingston in a number one contenders match. From then on, Orton and Legacy attacked The Game, getting the better of him on more than one occasion.

The last episode of RAW, it was cranked up enough as The Viper baited Triple H into a chase, where Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase jumped The Game backstage. Legacy decimated the WWE Champion, even RKO’ing him on the concrete. Then, later in the night, Shawn Michaels faced off against Orton, but came up short. After the match was the real talking point though, Triple H returned and attacked The Viper, but Cody Rhodes came to help his friend, Randy Orton. The duo handcuffed Triple H to the bottom rope, and when this was going on – Ted DiBiase was instructing production staff to play a home video.

The video in question was taken by Ted DiBiase as he, Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton invaded Triple H’s brother in law’s house. They destroyed the house and beat up Shane McMahon. The threesome left the house, meanwhile Triple H was forced to watch.

Tonight, Randy Orton challenges Triple H for the WWE Championship, but this match is about more than the WWE Championship – it’s personal.

World Heavyweight Championship
World Heavyweight Champion John Cena vs. The Rated R Superstar Edge

A three year rivalry comes to an end...

Ever since The Rated R Superstar, Edge cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase on John Cena at New Years Revolution in two thousand and six, the hatred between these two men has built and built. These two have traded insults, traded blows, one has thrown the other into a river while the other has laid his hands on the others father. This rivalry resulted in the two men facing each other five Pay-Per-View events in 2006, four of which were singles matches where the results were split down the middle, both men gaining two wins over each other. The feud seemingly ended at Unforgiven in 2006, when John Cena defeated Edge in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs in Edge’s home town. But, the two men continued to meet throughout 2007 and 2008, not in direct competition everyone knows that the rivalry was still brewing under the surface.

Every week, John Cena walks down the ramp, gaining huge reactions from the crowd, be it positive or negative but for every Superstar like John Cena, there is another man who will always be the bane of his career. Hulk Hogan had Randy Savage, Steve Austin had Mr. McMahon, The Rock had Triple H and The Undertaker had Kane – John Cena has Edge.

This rivalry was renewed, officially, just before WrestleMania XXV, Edge entered himself into the RAW Elimination Chamber and ended up winning John Cena’s World Heavyweight Championship. John Cena took exception to his and the rivalry went into a kick drive again, but with the inclusion of Big Show and Vickie Guerrero. Cena managed to expose Vickie Guerrero who was having an affair with Big Show, behind Edge’s back, and Cena won the World Heavyweight Championship back at WrestleMania XXV. With Show and Vickie out of the picture, this rivalry finally has its end. John Cena and Edge will go face to face, one more time, for the World Heavyweight Championship. No gimmicks in this match, just two men fighting for the right to be called World Champion. A three year rivalry comes to an end this Sunday, and it’s all about the World Heavyweight Championship.

Tables, Ladders & Chairs
The Dark One Matt Hardy vs. The Charismatic Enigma Jeff Hardy

Brothers collide...

When you think of The Hardy Boyz, you used to think of one of the greatest tag teams to ever grace the WWE, a team which defied gravity, a team that won multiple Tag Team Titles but all of that has changed - now when you think of the two Hardy brothers, you think of back stabbings, jealously and hatred. Both Hardy’s have had their share of success in singles competition, Matt Hardy has won the United States Championship and the ECW Championship, but that pales in comparison to his brothers achievements – the Intercontinental Championship and the WWE Championship.

When Jeff won the WWE Championship, everyone was happy for him, the crowd were elated and on the surface, so was his brother. It wasn’t until the Royal Rumble of this year, that we saw Matt Hardy’s true colours, as all the pent up jealously flowed out when he cost his brother the WWE Championship. In a match with Edge, Jeff was looking good for the win until Matt interfered, and smacked his brother in the skull with a steel chair which The Rated R Superstar took advantage off and won the WWE Championship.

At that moment, everyone found out Matt Hardy’s true colours. Everyone found out that it was he who made Jeff Hardy’s life a living hell over the months prior to the Royal Rumble. Matt ran Jeff’s car off the road, he threw his brother down a flight of stairs and even set Jeff’s pyro off just when he was in the middle of the firing range. The nearer we got to WrestleMania, the more heated this feud became as we found out it was Matt who burned down Jeff’s house which resulted in the death of his dog.

At WrestleMania XXV, the two brothers faced off in an Extreme Rules match. The match was brutal, each man left with bruises and scars but in the end it was Matt Hardy that picked up the victory. The week after WrestleMania, Matt Hardy demanded a shot at John Cena’s World Heavyweight Championship and was granted an opportunity to earn just that, when he faced off against Edge and The Big Show in a triple threat match. Due to interference by Jeff Hardy, Matt didn’t get the win, instead the brothers continued feuding. The next few weeks consisted off backstage attacks, brawls in the centre of the ring, strong words exchanged and it all comes to ahead this coming Sunday. When the two brothers collide in a match they helped make famous, a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.

WWE Intercontinental Championship
WWE Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio vs. The Ruthless Englishman William Regal w/ The Sinister Scotsman Drew McIntyre & The English Terror Nigel McGuiness

An champion in peril...

At WrestleMania XXV we saw the retirement of John Bradshaw Layfield, a former WWE Champion faced off against a former World Heavyweight Champion in Rey Mysterio, in a bout over the WWE Intercontinental Championship. In record time, Rey Mysterio hit JBL with the 619 and picked up the win, winning his first WWE Intercontinental Championship. After the match, as a result of this match, Bradshaw decided it was time to end it as he emphatically declared he was retiring.

The next Monday night, Rey Mysterio came out to celebrate with the fans on his big win, but his celebration was cut short when a former WWE Intercontinental Champion, William Regal interrupted and told Rey that he was a disgrace to the belt and in due time he’ll rip that belt from him. The next week on RAW, Mysterio faced off against the formidable Mike Knox, he picked up the win but the aftermath was the talking point. We witnessed the debuts of Nigel McGuiness and Drew McIntyre, the two men walked out with William Regal and the three of them attacked the Intercontinental Champion.

Ric Flair booked a match for the next week, giving Rey a chance to get some revenge as he faced off against Drew McIntyre. But, thanks to some interference from Regal and brass knuckles, Drew picked up a debut win over the I.C Champion. The next week, the RAW General Manager was attempting to deal with a situation between Randy Orton and Triple H when William Regal came out to the ring and asked for an Intercontinental Championship match, he was told if Nigel McGuiness beat Rey Mysterio then he would get a shot at Backlash. Due to more interference, Rey was beaten again, and William Regal got his shot at Backlash. The Intercontinental Champion will defend his belt in a singles match, but at times it will feel like a handicap three on one match, because McIntyre and McGuiness will be in Regal’s corner. A champion in peril is exactly what this is, we’ve seen Rey overcome huge odds but will this be too much for The Biggest Underdog?

WWE Tag Team Championship
WWE Tag Team Champions The Colons vs. The Man With A Plan The Brian Kendrick & The Dominator Ezekiel Jackson

Who is the best tag team...

At WrestleMania XXV, Carlito and Primo gained a huge notch on their belts when they defeated the World Tag Team Champions at the time, The Miz and John Morrison. On SmackDown, a few days after WrestleMania, The Colons defended their WWE Tag Team Championships against the team of Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder, after the match – the Tag Team Champions were attacked from behind. The duo were backing up the ramp when The Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel Jackson attacked them, decimating the champions on the stage.

The next week on SmackDown, The Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel Jackson came out to the ring and complained about Hawkins and Ryder getting a shot before them. They told us all that they are the best tag team on this brand, but two men had something to say, those two men were The Colons. The brothers came out and said they’d face the two men in the ring at Backlash, and they’ll put the WWE Tag Team Championships on the line. After the brief little exchange, blue gloop fell from the ceiling and landed on the two men in the ring.

The rivalry was then kick started as both teams picked up victories in single action before they competed in the main event of the last SmackDown. They competed with four of the biggest superstars on SmackDown, and the match descended into a brawl between the teams. This match is all about the WWE Tag Team Championships, and who is the best tag team on SmackDown.

Straight Edge Takes On A Demonic Presence
The Straight Edge Superstar CM Punk vs. The Big Red Monster Kane

Are demons present in the WWE...

When Kane debuted we saw something we have never seen before, we saw someone who was the epitome of the devil. He debuted and ran riot on everyone, then he went through a lull when whatever was wrong with him seemingly sorted itself out. However, now we are beginning to see the demon come out of Kane once more, and at Backlash CM Punk will face him and try and prove that demons don’t exist.

It all started when CM Punk knocked Kane off the ladder and pulled the briefcase down at WrestleMania. Nobody would have known what would happen next, as something inside of Kane snapped, or came to life as Kane put it, and he attacked The Straight Edge Superstar. Kane continued to attack Punk, and he informed everyone that he has a demon inside of him, which has been lying dormant for years, but now Punk has unleashed it. The question remains, are demons present in the WWE?

CM Punk is the current Money in the Bank holder, a former World Heavyweight Champion and he is a straight edge has anyone else. He believes that Kane has been abusing drugs which has resulted in Kane believing he is a demon, but if you’ve watched Kane over the years, you’ll know something is seriously wrong with The Big Red Monster and it isn’t drugs.

The Present And Future Of The WWE
The Shaman of Sexy John Morrison & The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels vs. The Best in the World Chris Jericho & The Awesome One The Miz

Two different mentors... two different ideologies...

If you are going to mentored by anyone, it’d be hard to pick two much better than Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho. These two are very different... two different mentors... two different ideologies but with both the same goal, to get John Morrison and The Miz on the map.

At WrestleMania, The Miz and John Morrison lost a tag team match to The Colons and as a result, The Miz turned on Morrison, ending their partnership and announcing Chris Jericho as his new tag team partner. In a title match, John Morrison cost them the Tag Team Titles, and as a result the feud kicked into overdrive. Jericho and Miz verbally abused Ric Flair and attacked the RAW General Manager, Shawn Michaels tried to save his friend but the numbers game caught up to him, but John Morrison saved him from a beating and we saw the formation of a mentor/protégé relationship.

At Backlash, these two teams will go face to face, two experienced Superstars teaming with what some believe to be the future of the WWE. Whoever wins this match, be it Michaels and Morrison or The Miz and Jericho, they’ll have a lot to brag about and for the young careers of the youngsters, it will be a huge notch on their belt.

A Lust For Competition
The Moscow Mauler Vladimir Kozlov vs. A Handpicked Opponent

Will the competition finally arrive...

In the weeks leading up to WrestleMania, Vladmir Kozlov told everyone he was going to challenge The Undertaker at WrestleMania, even gaining a pin fall over The Undertaker but Shawn Michaels eventually won the match between the two to decide who ‘Taker would face. Kozlov didn’t have a match at WrestleMania, instead he was left off the card and that did not sit well with The Moscow Mauler.

Vladimir Kozlov has been on a crusade to get some competition as Theodore Long seems reluctant to give Kozlov anything to do. Kozlov has defeated Evan Bourne, Jeff Hardy and The Great Khali when he asked for competition, but as said on wwe.com he will have a match at Backlash, where his opponent will be handpicked.

It’s not a man who is on the roster already, it’s a totally new Superstar, but the question remains will Kozlov deem this man to be big enough competition. Will the completion finally arrive?

WWE Divas Championship
WWE Divas Champion Maryse vs. The Strong And Sexy Gail Kim

Beauty versus beauty...

Maryse faces her toughest test yet after winning the WWE Divas Championship as she faces a former WWE Women’s Champion in Gail Kim. The Strong And Sexy Gail Kim defeated Natalya to win a number one contenders match which meant she would face Maryse at Backlash for the championship. It’s beauty versus beauty as two of the best divas on SmackDown go head to head.

Gail Kim already has a pin fall victory over Maryse when she pinned her in a tag team match before Backlash. The next few weeks consisted of Maryse getting her own back, attacking Kim backstage and then attacking her in the ring. Maryse is showing a new violent side to her, and she’ll be looking to keep her WWE Divas Championship.
