Re: BKB Star. Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment 2006
Thanks for all of the comments so far guys, I really appreciate it. My first RAW is pretty much done and dusted, so expect a preview in a few days. Until then, here's some news which may or may not reveal which direction it is I'll be headed in as we go to Mania.
~ So, with the Royal Rumble just three weeks away, the talk around town is obviously about just who exactly it is that is going to win the 2006 Royal Rumble. Names from both brands have been thrown up as possibilities with quite a few contenders in what appears to be an even field this year. The top candidates from RAW are Triple H, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair (his name has been tossed around), Shawn Michaels (overcoming Vince McMahon), and Rob Van Dam (should the rumours of him returning be true). On the SmackDown! side of things, The Undertaker, Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio look to be the only actual chances. Odds are that we’ll see a RAW winner this year.
~ As far as other matches at the Rumble go, having seen the Royal Rumble poster, I can confirm that it will most likely be Edge defending his WWE Championship against John Cena. Cena of course has a rematch after Edge cashed in Money in the Bank last night, so they aren’t expected to waste any time on that feud. SmackDown! is meanwhile looking like having Batista vs Mark Henry, after Henry made a return last Friday by ripping the cage door off in the Seel cage Match between Batista& Rey Mysterio and MNM. After the assault on Batista, it’s expected we’ll get Henry vs ‘Tista at the Rumble.
~ While people are hoping Henry will be better than he used to be after time away from WWE, we can confirm he isn’t. In fact, his performance at a house show last Saturday as so poor that many people thought he had injured the fragile Batista, which we can now confirm is false. Vince McMahon, who hadn’t seen him wrestle up until his return is said to be absolutely furious about the way Henry was wrestling, and was considering pulling him immediately. However, he will most likely stay on the roster in an attempt to make Batista look good, before they may send him off for good. When Vince isn’t a fan of you it’s definitely not a good thing, so Henry’s in a terrible position here.
~ Trish Stratus and Mickie James are set to continue their storyline, though it’ll likely be more dragged out. Don’t expect the two to wrestle again until at least WrestleMania 22.
~ JBL is set for a big push in the company. While he had formerly been complaining of back-pain, JBL has gone to Germany to get treatment on his back with calf’s blood. His back is said to be in much better shape, and he will probably stay in the ring until at least WrestleMania 23. This likely means a push, as we all know that Vince and JBL are good friends in real life, and even use the same barber.
~ Randy Orton is another person WWE will push... if he can keep his behaviour in check. Orton is said to be a real pain currently backstage, and he’s doing himself quite a bit of harm. In fact, some are even saying that if he wasn’t such a liability backstage, he may have defeated The Undertaker in their Hell in a Cell match back at Armageddon. We all know how that actually went down...
~ There were many rumours saying Juventud had been released from his contract with his profile being removed from wwe.com. However, we can now confirm that he is back on there. One suspects that it was a short suspension, especially with Juvi not being announced as being released by the WWE at any point.
~ In WrestleMania news, the card really hasn’t taken much of a shape yet, though we do suspect that The Undertaker will face off against either Chris Benoit or possibly Rob Van Dam, which is to be set up at the Rumble. Kurt Angle vs Triple H is a chance too, since Angle has been getting a face reaction, and may as well just turn now, even with Daivari managing him. Vince McMahon vs Shawn Michaels also looks a lock at this stage with the way the feud has just started.
~ And finally in news relating to TNA, former ECW Champion, Rhino is said to be coming out of contract this May. With rumours that WWE may make ECW a third brand, there’s a chance they’ll go after Rhino. This is going to be a case of waiting and seeing.
