Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Well, KOPV1, thanks for reviewing what I have done so far. I see you're set to drop a PPV, and really dont have an extremely recent show for me to review. So I will give some predics for Backlash, most of which will obvioulsy be shot in the dark, and then you can rest assured that you'll recieve a full Review from me on Backlash, and all post-Backlash shows.WWE Presents Backlash 2006

Rob Van Dam (c) vs Kurt Angle
I know RVD challenged Angle at Mania, after winning the Rumble. I saw your posters, and peeked at the thread from time to time when I was not booking. So, in that case, Van Dam CANNOT lose. I just can't see all the buildup, to lose the next month. Unless he is going to take it right back. I am not always against a series of title drops, creating a series of short term reigns. It doesn't happen often, but if done right, it can create some good excitement.
Shelton Benjamin (c) vs Gregory Helms
I dunno. I see Helms is one of your favorites, and it would make sense to push him here before everyone else does. And a title change is always good for PPV, and with RVD likely retaining, this may be the one to drop. However, these two could have some great matches, so perhaps this one will end in a smoz in order to prolong the feud, leaving Backlash with no definite winner.
World Tag Team Championships
3MW (c's) vs Eugene and Goldust
Can't see a title change here. Jamal and Rosey need much better competition. Eugene and Goldust is cute, and with proper buildup could be fun, and win the belts. But I am doubting they were at Mania in the title match, and with this being the PPV to follow Mania, I cant see them being ready or over enough to take the belts.
Women's Championship - Handicap Match
Mickie James (c) vs Trish Stratus and Ashley Massaro
Don’t really know the scoop behind this match, other than at a glance it seems like an elongated version of WWE's storyline early this year. Anyway, I'll go with Mickie, after Ashley turns on her...? Who knows?
Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Triple H and Kane
Special Referee: Vince McMahon
Special Enforcer: Shane McMahon
Seems the babyface team would be these two, and I cant see that the McMahon's are there to help HBK and Austin. Therefore, I see the two legendary competitors defying the odds, and winning this bout.
Steel Cage Match
John Cena vs Chris Jericho
I think Cena and he fought at you Mania, with Cena coming out on top. I just think Jericho deserves this win. Hopefully he'll get it, though it won't hurt my feelings either way.
Matt Striker w/ Test vs Charlie Haas
Decent undercard match I guess. I am going with Test making sure Striker wins. BTW, is the big dumby Striker's "student"?
Carlito vs Chris Masters
Carlito rules, Masters drools. Period.
Looks good KOP. Can't wait to read it.
