**EDITED 12-15-06 DUE TO NEWS POSTING AND REALIZED I MADE A MISTAKE**
Hey, it's that time again. Armageddon is shaping up very nicely and I will leave predictions and thoughts. As always expect a PPV review from me. It will be a great way to relax because I have finals coming up three days this week.
Predictions for Armageddon:
World Heavyweight Championship Match: Last Man Standing Match:
Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena
Oh man. Ever since Survivor Series I have been pondering over who is going to win this one. I have thought about it more and more and I just think it is 50-50 at this point. I mean HBK needs to drop the title if he is to face the Rock at WM but how will he drop it. It makes more sense to have him drop the title to someone he has been fueding with and not just anyone. But, if the winner of the Christian/Orton match is to face the victor then he will probably win the title off HBK at the Rumble. This way The Rock can make fun of HBK causing HBK to cost him a opportunity. So, I think HBK will win. This is one of the predictions I edited.
Intercontinental Championship Match:
Rey Mysterio vs. Carlito
I'm going with Mysterio on this one because Carlito is new to the block for your show. Also, I see Edge getting the heel turn that he has wanted at this PPV hopefully setting up a match between Rey and Edge at Mania for the title. I just don't think it is time for Mysterio to lose the belt yet. Especially after surviving a long fued with RVD.
World Tag Team Championships; Ladder Match:
The DX Duo vs. The World’s Greatest Tag Team
I think the name of the tag team says it all. I don't see the DX Duo being able to cheat their way out of this one. Although, you may just switch things up to keep the readers on their toes but I think these two men have great talent and deserve the belts. Also, they could betray each other leading up to WM setting up a very talent filled match.
Trish Stratus vs. Victoria
Victoria has been on quite the role but Trish has conquered the Amazon. I don't think it would be right for Trish to get such a monumentful win about a month ago and then drop the belt so soon. Also, I'm glad that you have a little storyline going in the Women's division. I hope you book Trish against Gail Kim soon because that would be a great match.
Legend vs. Legend:
Ric Flair vs. Undertaker
(Flair cannot be disqualified, or counted out, and falls count anywhere)
I dunno but this match seems kind of fishy. We have the new general manager, who may not be staying long, already booked in a wrestling match. Oh wait. I think Batista will come in and help Ric Flair win hopefully setting up Batista vs. UT at WM. This would be great because it is time for a Batista push in your thread and you have been using him great. So yeah, Flair wins.
One on One:
Randy Orton vs. Christian
The two superpowers of Raw this year collide and this will probably be the MOTN. I figure the main event will be a close second. I don't see this being the end of this fued either. Anyways, Christian has been on a roll this year and if he is going to win the Rumble he needs to keep his momentum up. If the winner of this match is to get a WHC shot at the Rumble, then Orton should win. This way, Christian can win the Rumble allowing for a final face-off at the Rumble. It could go the other way but Orton has had a long title reign before so it makes more sense for Christian to lose this match and win the Rumble and for Orton to win this match and win the WHC at the Rumble. This is another one of my predictions that I edited.
Past vs. Future:
Sting vs. Batista
If Batista is to go on and face the Undertaker as I believe he will need some momentum. I really hope you don't have Sting go over Batista because he needs to go to the top. He is very dominant as a heel and needs a push, slowly but surely.
Edge vs. Rob Van Dam
I see Rob Van Dam winning this somehow whether it is through a clean victory or a DQ. The only way I see Edge winning is if RVD decides to get himself DQed. Anyways, I forsee an Edge heel turn after the match leading to a beatdown of RVD. While I like the current character of RVD, I am looking forward to you having Edge as a heel.
6 Man Tag Team Match:
Brotherhood vs. Booker T, Goldust & Eugene
This is another one that I am not sure about. Bringing the Brotherhood back together was cool but I hope you don't have Eugene and Booker job to them. Goldust, who cares. Anyways, Eugene was in the War Games match even though he was out first and I think he needs to become a contender in the I.C. division. As I said before he is very enertaining and is a decent wrestler. Anyways, if Brotherhood wins, I guess it won't be that big of a deal.
I doubt I did very good on this PPV but it should be a good one. I will review Armageddon but I don't know how long it will take after the show is posted.
P.S. Where did you get your star grading system for PPV's? Did you get it from one of those wrestling books by Scott, Norton I believe, or someone like that. I was just wondering because I have a wrestling book like that called the One Ring Circus or something.
