Huge ME tonight, but I expect Cena and Christian to go over after Lesnar turns on HHH, then Cena beats HHH at the Rumble because of Lesnar and Christian wins the Rumble match so we get Cena vs. Christian at WM and HHH vs. Lesnar also. Just my 2 cents, though.
Simple booking 101, tbh. Mysterio was clearly going to go over to get an IC title shot and while Kennedy loses he's going to get a huge ME push towards WM. I expect a stunning performance from Kennedy in the RR, possibly to the last 5 or so, but he's an outside shot of winning it.
HBK and Carlito vs. Finlay and Orton sounds like a pretty big match-up before the RR. Finlay's taking the fall tonight, imo, and Carlito starts his 2007 with a win.
Tomko get's squashed by Umaga. What's new? I expect Umaga to get a performance like Kennedy will at the Rumble by having a good effort but not winning it all after being eliminated by someone flukeishly.
Kennedy...Kennedy making a decent case for himself, but sorry KK, you ain't gonna win it.
at the video package. Well done.
Punk to go over Nitro and next week Helms will go over Mercury so they are placed into the RR. My predictions aren't always right (
) but this one isn't going to be wrong.
HHH gots it right here. Like I said above, Lesnar isn't going to help out HHH and co., even if he's on their team. I'd be surprised if he did, tbh.
I like Voices for Orton, and change is good, so thumbs up on that. I was right on who would win, just wrong person on who would get pinned and such. Continuing the HBK/Orton feud until WM, I see, which sounds like an awesome match. Go for it plz.
Looks like Melina wears the pants in this trio.
Why are Cena and Christian revealing WM's plans so early? It's not even the Royal Rumble yet [
]. Basic interview, more buildup towards the match. Other then that, meh.
Good to see Hall actually get pushed in a thread, although they didn't get a lot of time to work with, I don't enjoy many women's wrestling matches as it is, so thumbs up.
Yeah, Orton/HBK is going to WM now. Doane is going to win the TT and Orton is going to win next week, but HBK is going to eliminate him in the Rumble to further the feud, imo. The Rumble doesn't need to be filled up by New Wave people anyways. Two is more then enough.
Finally ME time. If Cena/Christian don't go over, you're dead.
Heck of a match, very entertaining, considering two of the guys can't wrestle a lick. Obviously Cena and Christian were going to go over, and now we have a title match and the winner of the Royal Rumble in the match.
Overall: Very entertaining show to open up 2007, Wolfy. The Rumble is shaping up nicely and a SD review will be edited in soon. 8.5/10
