Congrats on the Mod spot.

This is three reviews at once, KOP, so bear with me. I'm a tad behind

The Cutting Edge is always a surefire way to kick off a show, and this particular edition with Angle as the guest was very interesting. I have absolutely no complaints with the characterisation, as in these kinds of situations all Edge generally does is say how "unintimidated" he is, and Angle basically rants about how he is "gonna' snap your damn ankle". There was plenty of that in here, which certainly helped it seem intense and personal. In my opinion, despite the fact that this match has been made into an "I Quit" Match, this feud has not been anywhere near as personal as it should be for a rivalry that has really been going on and off since Judgement Day of last year. Saying that, the Suplex through the table last week during the contract signing and tonight's Cutting Edge have definately upped the ante. BURCHILL~!!! Excellent, really excellent choice to re-invent his character like this. The Ripper/hooligan gimmick he uses is the one that will get him places, not the comedic pirate one. I have been wondering where he has been for a while, so it's good to see him back. I think his inclusion actually tips the scales, so that I would name the Angle/Edge feud now my favourite one in this thread leading into the Royal Rumble.

Matt Hardy is really picking up a hell of a lot of momentum lately. Obviously it's to set up Kennedy retaining come Sunday, but even so, it's great to see Matt winning on a constant basis. Hopefully this sets a precedent for the rest of the year. As for Chavo ... stop jobbing him out plz. The man is severely underrated and awesome.

Well I haven't been into this "Ladies Man" thing at all with Kenny, and this segment with Ashley did nothing for me. It came off as very bland and generic. Now I don't actually mind Dykstra on the mic; I think he's decent, but I think if you really want to push him you should have paired him off with a woman who actually has charisma. Ashley is blander than stale bread. I know you mark for Kenny though (I guess I do too), so I look forward to seeing where this push goes.

Great hype to the Cruiserweight Championship match with the video package. At least you are giving the division some much needed attention. Good match between London and Noble as well, and it was a given really that Noble was going to retain. His reign with the belt has been pretty much flawless for a year. The only other guy who I would like to see with the belt is Kid Kash As for the two guys who screwed London; it's so obvious they're Deuce and Domino I don't even need to say anything.

Lol @ Deuce and Domino. They're awesome on the mic to be honest. One thing though, when you're typing "OOOOOH", it sounds a bit camp. I know the sound you are going for, but maybe it would be better writing it as "OH~!!!". Up to you though.

Nice little backstage segmeny from JBL and Edge. Burchill taking on Angle next week should be a treat if it is indeed a proper match, as Burchill is phenomenal in the ring. I just hope Ripper doesn't do the job and gets DQed or something. Angle as a nut is awesome, and so is angry JBL. Interesting about the 'Last Chance' stipulation to the match. Looks like Edge will have a different challenger come No Way Out then, but who could it be?

Wow, ECW really will be a roster full of jobbers, eh, KOP? Anyway, I though Big Dave had qualified before tonight but obviously not. I can see him setting up his feud come the Rumble match. He better not win though.

Pretty bland interview from Rey Rey. Just the usual schtick he always gives about being the underdog. He doesn't stand a chance in the Rumble, but given then 'shock factor' you promised, I guess you never know.

Your WrestleMania tagline still sucks tbh

NOOOO~!!! Regal and Taylor have now become jobbers? I'm gutted. They were an awesome tag team. Oh well, at least CM Punk is being pushed. Anaconda Vise > Go 2 Sleep all the way.

If you give Mark Henry a quality manager I will be all in favour of this push he seems to be in the middle of. Decent promo from him though. He is always very interesting on the mic I find. I can see him, Umaga and Batista being the three monsters who completely dominate the Rumble match.

"retarted" really, Tazz? Anyway, pretty lackluster Main Event in all honesty. You could have gone with a six man tag or something. Both Kane and Henry have really done nothing of late, and are not Main Event level anymore. Regardless, stills surprising to see Kane go over so easily.

Raw Feedback


This really has felt quite similar to the Hardy/Orton feud of late due to the way that Randy has been completely dominated in the lead up to their Rumble encounter. I'm not all too keen on Heyman and ECW having to do all of Van Dam's talking for him, but I'll admite, Paul E. does make every segment he's in considerably more interesting. With ECW banned from ringside on Sunday at least we will get a nice clean match. However, is that person who Orton keeps speaking to on the phone still a storyline? You haven't mentioned it recently. Wow, huge Main Event for tonight with RVD/Foley versus Orton/??? in an Extreme Rules Match. Maybe too big? Seems like a PPV calibre match to me though. Umaga for Orton's partner plz.

Gregory Helms jobbing to Sabu = absolutely no ratings whatsoever. Helms is an awesome young wrestler, and Sabu is an over-the-hill spot monkey. I'm apalled, sir

Ah, another superstar just declaring how is going to win the match. I know Cena is so good on the mic he would make this fun, but even he can't distract me from the fact that there have been far too many of these.

MNM being in the Rumble match is a neat way of disguising the fact that they have now become glorified jobbers in the tag team division. Such a shame. Might as well split them up if that is the case. Haas and Flair get the win to give them some momentum, but Burke and Benjamin still come out looking the stronger. I still hope we get a title change though. Also, B&B need a team name.

Jericho being a bitch to the fans really is a disappointment. There were much better way you could have turned him back into a face. Palumbo blindsides him? Wow, those two really are through. I hope Chuck gets into the Rumble match, as he and Y2J need to beat the crap out of each other in that match.

Wow, Foley hasn't made an appearance since WrestleMania 22? That certainly is unrealistic for you, KOP. Ha ha, it might be a good return for him, as RVD needs some momentum heading into the Rumble, but it could also be a bad return, as he may take the pin fall.

Ugh, I think I hate you sometimes, KOP, you keep jobbing out all of my favourites like Helms and now Carlito At least Jeff Hardy is the Intercontinental Champion, which makes it bearable I suppose. Still, if you want to surprise me with the RR winner it had better be good.

Oh yeah, Umaga is Orton's partner~!! 'Mags is still undefeated right? Once who start posting shows in full again I can't wait for Estrada to get on the mic more.

Oh no, not another Rumble hype. This time from HUN-TOR. More of the same as Cena really. You have alot of star power in this match to be honest, but I honestly hope no one too big wins it.

Well at least Shawn Michaels' Rumble hype was done in a more interesting fashion. Masters has been a jobber in this thread since he dropped the Intercontinental Championship last year, so the result was never in doubt. As for HBK's words on the mic afterwards, he is one of the many superstars who I really hope do not win the Rumble. Someone young and fresh plz.

Nice little promo from RVD and Foley. Foley intense ECW mode is always good. The Main Event sounded wild as well. It was wierd to see Van Dam get taken out of the equation so soon, but Foley held his own really well, actually getting 'Maga to go through a table, before Orton RKO's him on a chair for the win. I'm quite surprised that Randy picked up the win tonight, as he will almost certainly be retaining this Sunday (I hope). Still, this could be played off as a bit of an injury to Van Dam before the big one, thus helping Orton win. You never know.

SmackDown! Feedback


An Over-The-Tope-Rope Battle Royal tonight? I remember this happening in real life. I think they had guys like Kane, Miz, Benoit etc. but Undertaker interfered and killed everyone. So long as you don't do that I'll be happy. Finlay for the win plz.

Ugh, Regal and Taylor really are jobbers now I guess with Regal taking his turn to lose to CM Punk this week. Hopefully Punk's push starts to get big following the Rumble and heading into WrestleMania.

Well I wonder how many Rumble hypes we will get tonight? Here's one already from Big Dave Batista. I'll give you a bit more credit, since this was about the Battle Royal tonight as well. Still, I hope we don't get any more of these.

Yay, Deuce and Domino's push begins. They're likely to be shoved into a feud with The Hooligans fairly quickly, since you don't really have any other tag teams right now.

@ MizTV. It's so cheesy I almost like it. Almost. Matt Hardy and Mr. Kennedy's feud is getting some really nice attention in the lead up to their match. This is another nice segment from the two of them, with Kennedy mentioning the fact that they have been feuding since No Way Out last year. That really is quite impressive, to have two guys go at it one and off for almost a year and it not get boring. The brawl at the end was fairly equal in the end, but the whole build to this feud has me assuming that Kennedy will retain. Both men should put in great performances in the Rumble though. They deserve it.

I love the pairing of Edge and Paul Burchill already. They seem a little bit like Jericho and Chuck Palumbo used to be on Raw. Hopefully Burchill doesn't get jobbed out tonight.

Wierd business between Kenny and Ashley. Why would she accompany him to the ring if they aren't dating? Anyway, solid win for Dykstra over Jimmy Wany Yang, although I;m still waiting for this "Ladies Man" gimmick to really grab my attention.

Ah the unholy Cruiserweight alliance of Jamie Noble and Kid Kash. They are two of the best things on the roster if you ask me. I'm glad London and Kendrick are being kicked out of the CW division, as it kind of takes away from the Tag Team titles. Oh boy, Deuce and Domino are already proving how great they are in this thread. Champions plz.

Oh come on, how could you eliminate Finlay first? Why do people not mark for Irishman as much as me? Kane going out early is fine, as is Mysterio (awesome powerbomb over the top). Batista kills Henry to win the match and is rolling into the Rumble. I can definately see 'Tista doing a Rikishi, a Diesel or a Kane and just completely dominating the match until he gets eliminated. Should be good to see.

Woah, woah, woah, less of the anti-English tripe, KOP. I consider myself British but it still hurts. Me and DC may have to whoop your ass Anyway, solid promo from Angle (who I now hope loses because of his racist ways). I still don't know how he is going to say "I Quit". It's not in his character, and certainly not in his face character. He should sustain an injury beforehand or something.

Good Main Event between Angle and Burchill. I think we have finally seen the way Edge will be getting Angle to quit on Sunday. Burchill completely tore the shit out of Angle's shoulder and arm, during and even after the match, and you highlighted it so much that I think this is the way Edge will win. I'm glad Burchill didn't job, as he is far too good at this point for that. Like with Orton ending Raw on top, I'm surpised by Edge's dominace here. I expected him to retain at the Rumble, and I guess I still do. It's just that it seems a little odd for both heel Champions to go into the PPV looking strong and then both win. I hope they both do though.

Overall these were three solid shows, KOP. As you probably know, I find the endless Rumble hype from certain superstars very dull, but at least that will be ending now. I have my problems with a couple of results. Ha ha Just ignore me. Still, the Orton/RVD, Edge/Angle and Hardy/Kennedy feuds have all had awesome build of late and really have me looking forward to the Rumble this Sunday, as it should be a great PPV. Best of luck

Default Re: WWE Unleash the Fury

Sorry I missed Smackdown. Double review here for you though...

Monday Night Raw

Opening up with the Champion. This feud has definately got a lot more attention than the Rumble participants on Raw over the weeks, which would strongly hint at a Smackdown star (Mysterio imo ) winning the thing outright. Although, it's title feud has also been the centre of attention, so who knows. Glad RVD will be going it along come RR, as Orton being the heel champion shouldnt have to 'fight the odds'. Hot main event tonight, VERY hot.

No surprises to see Sabu go over Helms. He'll no doubt get a good run in the Rumble. And if not good, it'll be a better one than I expect Helms to get. Neither have a cat in hells chance of winning though.

Finally, some solid build up for the Rumble for a top line star. Cena (even in this recapped format), was put across well, as we get his drive behind winning the Rumble, apart from the natural title shot. It;s been a long time coming, but I just dont know if I can see you putting Cena in the WM main event.

Generic build up for the tag title match on Sunday, and that's all it needed really. It'll be a minor undercard match, so it doesnt need to blow me away in the build up. I expect *DEMAND* new champs at the Rumble.

I'm really pleased to see a different feud in BTB. Over the last week, I've actually changed my thoughts on the direction of Jericho, as it's something different. As long as his goal is to win back the fans, and not just play to them like a buffoon, this could really get over. Jericho to eliminate Palumbo from the Rumble anyone??

Good little win for Hardy here. The last sentence surely telegraphs a slow winding heel turn for Carlito?? Maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

Orton and Umaga, eh?? With the reminder also noted there, could that possibly be a hint towards a longer term alliance?? Proably reading too much into again . Hard to top the Samoan Bulldozer as a tag partner.

Triple H puts himself over. It might've been better served to have him interrupt Cena during his promo and say all this, as it could've created a conflict heading into Sunday, and maybe add a little more entertainment to both promos, as this one (albeit in recap form) didnt seem as interesting. Both versions do work though.

Michaels over Masters is meh. HBK has just beaten a couple of jobbers in recent weeks, which doesnt exactly make him a favourite to me as a contender for winning the Rumble. Post match promo though helped him gain a little steam.

Main event time, and well booked finish. Orton over Foley makes sense, as RVD doesnt have to really lose, and Orton gains a little more steam as champion. Sets the tone for RR and the title match.

Although you made more effort into building the Rumble match on this show, it still didnt feel that important. There maybe could've been an in ring promo, maybe after HBK's match, with HHH interrupting HBK's speech, and then Cena to have some sort of conflict, and further build up. Better show than recent weeks though, which were bogged down with qualifier matches.

-------------

Friday Night Smackdown

Instantly, Smackdown puts more emphasis on the Rumble, with a big main event match between five of the SD competitors. This is why I have been leaning to SD when thinking about a Rumble winner.

Big win for Punk, who I fully expect to get pushed rather quickly in the thread.

Looks like a couple more promos from the big names then, with Batista letting everyone know his goals.

Not keen on Deuce and Domino, but they can be a firm heel team in the tag division, although I wouldnt exactly be thrilled to see them go over London and Kendrick - not when MNM are doing nothing atm on Raw. MNM > D&D

Oh yeah, meant to say - ROYAL RUMBLE DOUBLE DUTY ROCKS MY MY WORLD!!! Loving that you've got a few guys pulling a double shift in the Rumble. Reminds me of the old days. Really pleased. Hardy and Kennedy should settle their issues at Royal Rumble, although No Way Out may end up being a better point for that, as ending the feud at this juncture, might find it get lost in the shuffle.

Is Burchills nickname here The British Nightmare, or The Ripper?? Pulling for The Ripper personally. I <3 Burchill btw. Hoping he continues to get the rub, by associating with the champ.

I assume it's a 'watch this space' relationship developing between Ashley and Kenny. Cool to see a lower card angle running. The end was a bit confusing. Kenney rolled out, Ashley rolled in, and helped Kenny up :S

Looks like D&D wont be waiting long for their title shot. I just wonder if Londons singles gold aspirations will hinder the champions tag title reign?? Then possibly mean a break up of the tandem, and an eventual London / Kendrick feud?? Just a really early, 'out there' prediction for the next 3 or 4 months.

After the title feud closed Raw, I would;ve expected a bit of build up for the match that sells the PPV to close out this show. Mysterio jobs out here worringly, which could well affect my prediction for the Rumble winner. Although it'd make for a good underdog story, overcoming a couple of monster figures like Batista and Henry. Big win for Big Dave, but I dont see him going to the WM main event.

Burchill ends up losing only by DQ. That actually comes off as a decent result for Burchill imo. Edge beats down Angle, and stands tall heading into the PPV. I cant see the face quitting in a match like this, and with Edge getting the last laugh before the storm, I see a title change at the Rumble, with Angle headed to a second straight WrestleMania main event.

Default Re: WWE Unleash the Fury



The 20th Annual Royal Rumble is set to take place this weekend. With such a stacked card heading into the show many people are expecting this to be one of the best Rumbles yet. But don’t look past the Royal Rumble match itself. It’s produced many dreams, many heroes, and many failures sadly too. But let’s take a look back at the past list of Royal Rumble winners

1988 – “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan
1989 – Big John Studd
1990 – Hulk Hogan
1991 – Hulk Hogan
1992 – Ric Flair
1993 – Yokozuna*
1994 – Bret Hart* and Lex Luger
1995 – Shawn Michaels
1996 – Shawn Michaels*
1997 – Stone Cold Steve Austin
1998 – Stone Cold Steve Austin*
1999 – Mr. McMahon
2000 – The Rock
2001 – Stone Cold Steve Austin*
2002 – Triple H*
2003 – Brock Lesnar*
2004 – Chris Benoit*
2005 – Batista*
2006 – Rob Van Dam*

10 of the past 19 Royal Rumble winners have went on to main event WrestleMania and then turn around and win the title that night. This years Royal Rumble match is certainly going to provide a big win for whoever wins as they will get to go on to WrestleMania 23 in Miami, Florida and pick their choice of whatever title they want to go after. Will we end up seeing a seasoned veteran walk away with a shot at glory at WrestleMania? Will it be a relative young and up comer? What brand will they be from? Raw or Smackdown?

History has had its moments in the Royal Rumble match before and this year will certainly be no different. History is made every year whether it’s most eliminations, longest duration in the match, least amount of time in the ring or whatever. You can guarantee that something will go down that will never be forgotten.

One thing is for sure. Thirty men from Raw and Smackdown will assemble in San Antonio this weekend with one thing on their mind: WrestleMania. Everybody knows that this is either make or break. This could be your shot to head to the top or you can continue to linger at the bottom of the show. Will someone rise up and shock everyone like Rob Van Dam did is the question. One thing is for certain though…

These warriors will battle it out and make sure nobody forgets this night.




Edge made a promise to his former tag partner in Rated RKO Randy Orton on the first Smackdown of 2007 that he might not be able to keep now. He promised that both him and Randy would win their matches at the Royal Rumble and both go on to main event WrestleMania. But Edge is looking past one big force and that is Kurt Angle. Angle and Edge have been at one another since Kurt first came to Smackdown last May courtesy of the Open Season where anybody could switch freely at any time. It brought about many changes but also brought up one of the more storied rivalries of 2006 as well. Now as we head into 2007 both men will settle their differences tonight where the winner is the man that is able to force his opponent to say the words “I Quit”. These matches are perhaps just as dangerous as a Steel Cage or any other match in that anything goes and with Kurt Angle and Edge in the ring it’ll be very hard to get one of them to mutter those two words.

Angle has already promised that he will not quit because he wants to main event WrestleMania this year just like he did last year once again. Edge however has a promise to keep and he has brought back up just in case in the form of the “British Nightmare” Paul Burchill. Edge has Burchill on his side just in case something was to go wrong in his quest to WrestleMania 23 and he might just be unstoppable with the British Beast he has.

Both Edge and Angle have big wins over one another. Angle pinned Edge in his very first match on Smackdown in a year. Angle then turned around and won a Six Pack Challenge to become the new champion at Judgment Day last year. Edge however fought valiantly trying to earn his title shot back which he did in September. The rematch was set for No Mercy in October to which Edge struck gold literally as he won the match and ended the five and a half month reign of Angle.

It was however Angle though who was able to win a Battle Royal as a prelude to the Royal Rumble and earn himself this shot. But one has to wonder just why Edge wanted an I Quit Match with Kurt Angle? We all know what Angle is capable of doing in an environment like this so why’d Edge want to risk his title? We don’t really have an answer to that one but one thing is for sure. One man’s dignity could be lost this Sunday whenever he has to physically stop and say the words “I Quit” because he cannot carry on.




A feud built on pretty much redemption. Rob Van Dam has been after his WWE title that he lost back in November at the Survivor Series in the Elimination Chamber. But he has to get through Randy Orton who is standing in the way. Orton and RVD are no strangers. They’ve met before in the ring but that was a few years back. Now though it’s become personal and since ECW announced it would make its return, as it’s own entire brand RVD has been looking to finally shut Orton up about Orton running his mouth about ECW.

It all started back on the cold night of January 8. Randy Orton came back to his hometown in St. Louis, Missouri as he was having a Welcome Home party. He had many friends there and family including a few guests. Randy invited three guests in particular: His dad, his friend and World-Heavyweight Champion Edge, and then Paul Heyman. Heyman certainly was a weird choice for Orton but Randy had no clue what Heyman was really there for. Heyman revealed that just like Edge and Randy’s dad had given him a few surprises, he had a big surprise too. The rebirth of ECW was announced and Randy ditched the ring before he could be attacked.

Since then Randy has said that he is not concerned about any of the ECW originals. But that really comes down to why did he then get Raw GM Jonathan Coachman to ban them from the arena? Is Orton really afraid of the fact that he might end up losing his title to RVD? Orton has said that it’s due to the fact that he wants a normal match just like he deserves. Orton says that there is nothing to be concerned about with the Originals.

RVD’s main goal is to take the WWE title with him to ECW if he does choose to go there. Heyman has been leading the group trying to help RVD get a big advantage but it all will come down to whether the presence of the ECW Originals (Who are rumored to be sitting at ringside this Sunday) do indeed come or not.




Flash back to February 19, 2006. That night in Las Vegas, Nevada Mr. Kennedy issued an Open Challenge to anybody at the No Way Out PPV. Little did he know his opponent was going to be Matt Hardy? The rest is history since then. They have already met at a few shows and Smackdown since then with both men sharing a big number of wins against one another.

Both men met at WrestleMania 22 in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match with one another. They then ended up in an interesting predicament later that summer whenever Mr. Kennedy defended his title against Rey Mysterio at SummerSlam. Kennedy was able to win as Hardy was the special referee and Hardy got knocked into the corner. Move two months ahead then as they all three met in a Triple Threat at No Mercy to which Kennedy once again prevailed. Move ahead two more months and you’ll see that Matt Hardy finally got another singles win over Mr. Kennedy at Armageddon in a non-title match.

This is certainly become personal. Eleven months on and off these two have been at one another and you know that Matt Hardy is gunning to take the United States title off of Mr. Kennedy. Matt however would maybe even be just content if he were able to beat the crap out of Kennedy and not even earn the title. There really is no telling but one thing for certain is that one man will walk out very happy and the other well…very angry.




When you hear the tag team name of Ric Flair and Charlie Haas called out you wonder just how they got paired together again. Rewind back to August of 2006 and you’ll remember that Charlie Haas had tag team sign ups to find a tag partner. Luckily “The Nature Boy” was free and now the rest is history. Everybody knows the story of this dream tag team between Ric Flair and the “Suplex Specialist” Charlie Haas.

Shelton Benjamin certainly knows it. He’s sat back and watched his former tag partner in the World’s Greatest Tag Team run around with the greatest wrestler alive in Ric Flair with the tag gold around their waists. Benjamin had his first title shot back at Cyber Sunday when he got voted in with an odd pairing of Carlito to take on the tag champs. But Benjamin wasn’t really as so concerned about the tag titles back then. Now is a different story…

The beginning of the New Year brought in his friend and tag partner Elijah Burke. Burke has proven to the fans that he can hang with the best and he already has big wins over Charlie Haas and a few other proven tag teams here on Raw along with Benjamin. Benjamin and Burke have proven that they are the real deal and that they will not be denied.

Ric Flair and Charlie Haas beg to differ though. They’ve been the champions for four months now and don’t want their dream run to end just like that. Flair and Haas have since become very good friends and tag partners. Benjamin though wants to bring an end to this dream tag team and the best way to do it? Steal their tag titles!

...

Aha, predictions time

WWE Royal Rumble
Sunday January 28, 2007
San Antonio, Texas

The Royal Rumble Match
Triple H, Jeff Hardy, Umaga, John Cena, Johnny Nitro, Joey Mercury, Carlito, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Charlie Haas, Shelton Benjamin, Elijah Burke, Sabu, Chris Jericho, Gregory Helms, Kane, Mark Henry, Kenny Dykstra, MVP, Rey Mysterio, Batista, Finlay, Brian Kendrick, Paul London, Jamie Noble, CM Punk, Matt Hardy, Mr. Kennedy, ??? and ???

Plumping for Mysterio. If not him, definately someone from SD. There just hasnt been much onus on anyone from Raw as a real contender. Obviously HHH, Cena and HBK are big contenders, but none have really been put over enough to be seen as a real contender. Mysterio though has been built up just about right. I'm interested to see just who the two mystery entrants will end up being though.

WWE Championship
Randy Orton (c) vs. Rob Van Dam
Orton is taking this and going to WM. Dont think he'll be in the main event though, as (if I'm right), I'd guess Rey would take on Angle at WM. It wont be clean, as I would expect you would want to keep RVD as strong as possible with the reformation of ECW. Orton retains, and probably goes on to face Cena or maybe HBK at WM, just through process of elimination. Of course, this all hinges on Rey winning the Rumble, or this domino effect just goes tits up

World-Heavyweight Championship
I Quit Match
Edge (c) vs. Kurt Angle
After Edge got the last word on SD, with him leaving Angle laying, I'm definately calling a title change. It's hard for a face to come out of an I Quiot match having lost, and still look strong. Edge to quit, Angle to go to WM, and face Mysterio.

United States Championship
Mr. Kennedy (c) vs. Matt Hardy
If this is to end the feud, Hardy would normally be my pick. But given my predictions, there are already going to be 2 titles changing, so Kennedy to retain this one. Under most circumstances, I'd pick Hardy, but I dont see 3 titles changing hands.

You know this has to happen. DO IT.

Looking forward to it KOP, hope it doesnt disappoint.

Backstage News and Notes Prior to the Royal Rumble

Emotions are boiling high tonight with the 20th annual Royal Rumble set to take place in only a few hours. The fans have been lining up outside the SBC Center to try and get in. Gates open in less than an hour and the arena is set to be jam packed tonight. The stage is set up in a Roman theme (the 2006 Royal Rumble set up) in which giant doors will be opened for every superstar before they enter the ring.

Two matches that have a lot of focus heading into them are of course the Royal Rumble match and the I Quit Match. Angle and Edge have been rehearsing their finish to their match all weekend and feel it will be something special indeed. The Royal Rumble match is expected to go by fine as Pat Patterson will of course be by backstage to make sure everything goes by just right!

It has pretty much been all but confirmed that the United States title match will kick off the Royal Rumble tonight. There was talks of there having the WWE title match start the show but since Kennedy and Hardy plus the competitors in the tag match will all be pulling double duty they wanted them on the card early.

There has been talks all this weekend if Creative was sure they had picked the right Royal Rumble winner. There was legitametly four possible winners that were planned and they feel they have picked the right one. It seems Creative is very confident the match will go over well and hope it delivers as it has been planned.

Rumor is going around that the ECW originals have bought tickets along with Paul Heyman to come watch the match tonight at ringside. There has been a special area set off for a few of the Originals and Heyman. Coach barred Heyman and his posse from appearing in the arena but if they have tickets he cannot do a thing.

There is expected to be a bit of hype towards WrestleMania starting tonight with a few more matches for the Grandest Stage of them All to be revealed. Some feuds are set to start tonight while others will of course begin in the next few weeks. But regardless there is expected to be a few surprises thrown in tonight.

And finally to close the backstage news out prior to the Royal Rumble in the Sunday Night Heat main event. We saw Chuck Palumbo defeat Robbie McAllister of the Highlanders
I've bumped the date for the Royal Rumble to go up to TONIGHT! I decided to let reviews start flowing in that I would do it tonight. Also the next show (Raw) won't be going up no earlier than Monday March 17 to give time for reviews to flow in. Look for the 'Rumble later tonight!

It wierd. You promised that this Rumble would be a surprise, and I don't think things are more surpising than sudden pushes for big mid-upper card talent like Matt Hardy. I can see him losing to Kennedy via DQ somehow and then going on to face Edge at WrestleMania in a very big confrontation. This is the most outlandish prediction I think I've ever made though ;p

WWE Championship
Randy Orton (c) vs. Rob Van Dam

Easy to see that Randy is taking this. He has been dominated in this feud except for the final show, but with RVD probably on his way to ECW, there is no chance of him getting the belt again. I'm looking at two heels carrying the belts into WrestleMania.

World-Heavyweight Championship
I Quit Match
Edge (c) vs. Kurt Angle

I was very confident previously that Edge would retain, but now I'm not as certain. Edge has looked quite dominant in this feud so far, especially since the inclusion of Paul Burchill. Angle could get the win though, but I think the destuction of his arm on Friday will lead to him quitting. Personally I don't want to see Kurt with the strap again unless he is a heel. His reigns as a face have been bland. Like I said above, two heels go into WrestleMania as Champs, and having them as Rated RKO makes it all the more significant.

United States Championship
Mr. Kennedy (c) vs. Matt Hardy

I think KK is holding this belt until WrestleMania in a JBL type reign before someone like Mysterio or Punk beats him for it. Also, i see Hardy getting DQed in some way, leading to him pulling out the match of his life in the Rumble.

World Tag Team Championships
Ric Flair and Charlie Haas (c's) vs. Shelton Benjamin and Elijah Burke
Flair and Haas have not really impessed as a tag team. Burke and Benjamin have. Flair and Haas are better as singles wrestlers, and B&B could really add some fire to the tag division.

The PPV has been built nicely, KOP, and everything has me hooked, especially the Rumble Match. Good luck with it

I would love HBK vs. RVD so that is why I chose it. One mystery entrant will be the Undertaker and he will eliminate Umaga.


WWE Championship
Randy Orton (c) vs. Rob Van Dam
See above

World-Heavyweight Championship
I Quit Match
Edge (c) vs. Kurt Angle
I have a feeling Angle will snap and keep Edge out until No Way Out before Edge returns to screw him.

United States Championship
Mr. Kennedy (c) vs. Matt Hardy
Transitional champion- Kennedy is not one of those things.

World Tag Team Championships
Ric Flair and Charlie Haas (c's) vs. Shelton Benjamin and Elijah Burke
Shock win before Flair and Haas get a feel good moment on the next RAW and Burke and Benjamin split up and face each other.

The event looks golden. I haven't really been following along with your thread, but I'll still try to drop by a review for the Rumble.
