Smackdown Feedback


Wasn’t sure what route you’d go to open the show as there were several possibilities but Chavo’s certainly a good choice after the ending last week. I really enjoyed this purely for the fact you linked Chavo’s reasoning all the way back to the La Familia days and the argument he made was pretty damn valid. Only little gripe here was Chavo saying he’s not here to be a puppet, he’s his own man now but then pretty much saying he’s part of the Alberto Administration at the end of this. I’d say that right there isn’t being his own man lol, but I got the point of it.

Chavo/Christian’s a real solid match on paper and again, links in well to the current stories. Good contest as expected, glad to see both men get their fair share of action in this and the ending was nicely handled with Edge and Clay. I half expected Del Rio to appear but I guess that’s being saved for later which is wise. Big win for Christian heading into Extreme Rules, though a little disappointed as I expected this to maybe be the beginning of a mini Chavo push, defeat here doesn’t set the tone too well. I guess he will just be a lackey once more! The aftermath was pretty brutal from Edge here as well, he really tore into Chavo, guess this was a nice measure of revenge after last week but would’ve liked Chavo to look a bit stronger having made a fresh start almost here tonight.

Nice little interaction backstage from the three faces. Barreta taking centre stage was nice, glad to see you allowing him that opportunity. Mysterio wasn’t the best here but he’s a pickle to write the majority of the time. Did its job here.

Good win and good display here from Cara. Nicely worked in giving him some momentum back after defeat last week. Interested to see where you go with him once Extreme Rules is over with.

Enjoyed this with Drew. You got his character pretty nicely here, the accent and his ruthless streak. Last line was a good closer also.

Wow, really strong, impressive display from Justin Gabriel here. Loved this match and loved the outcome. A win over Show is huge, you’ve certainly done a good job in allowing Gabriel and Slater to look like they have a real shot come Extreme Rules. Nice job afterwards also, allowing Kane and Show to steal a march and regain their momentum, nasty table spot and this one’s gonna be good come Sunday I think, a real opportunity for Gabriel and Slater to step up again.

Hell of a run down for the card there, shaping up to be a cracker of a show.

Strong display and win from Beth here, meh doesn’t interest me too much though.

Really enjoyed this from Christian. Again, much like Chavo and the La Familia link, this feud’s been executed so well with the link to their ECW days. I liked how you really played up the importance of the World title here, Christian made it such a big deal which is a far cry from reality right now unfortunately. MASSIVE attack here from Swagger, such a cheap shot but bloody brilliant stuff. Gives him a huge advantage going into Extreme Rules as well, that weakened ankle will no doubt be well worked on come Sunday. Excellent job.

Perfect characterisation with Barrett here, nailed him and I liked how hesitant he was to mention what went down last week. Him building up the Corre as the number one stable in the company was nice too.

Fantastic action here from the Intercontinental boys. Really enjoyable tag team bout that showcased all six men supremely well. It really did look like it could go either way but in the end a big, big win for Drew Mac. I’m torn on who’s gonna walk away with the belt come Extreme Rules and that’s testament to yourself as each man has been built up strongly and has a realistic shot at becoming champion. Allowing these guys eighteen minutes to shine by the way is great, NEVER happening on Smackdown nowadays, can‘t you just book Smackdown instead of these current idiots? Aftermath was nice also, allowing Barrett to stand tall, giving the champion that much needed boost ahead of such a big challenge is always a good move.

Edge was, much like the majority of characters, pretty spot on here. Some cheesy comedy attempts but that’s Edge for ya! Del Rio was much the same with regard to character, very strongly written and it was some nice back and forth verbal action between the two. Edge’s comparison of the two’s different upbringings and whatnot was good but Del Rio’s response was surprisingly strong, the whole hiding behind Christian at Mania was in part true, didn’t expect him to bring that up. Would’ve preferred you to steer clear of the whole ‘Destiny’ stuff with Del Rio but I guess that was his deal at this point in time. Really nice close to this segment, the whole head to head stuff brought a ‘big’ kinda feel to it all and having them NOT attack one another was something pleasing, making it worth the wait for Sunday. That’s something the WWE normally would not do so I commend you for doing something different, expected a sneak attack from Chavo/Clay but pleasantly surprised.

On the whole, excellent go home show for the Smackdown boys and girls. Edge/Del Rio closing segment was highly enjoyable to read, the ending left me wanting to read their match at the PPV. Christian/Swagger really turned up a notch here with that ankle lock from Swagger, expecting the injured ankle to be a real focal point on Sunday now. The Intercontinental title challengers along with champion also came out of this looking very strong in what could well be a show stealer at Extreme Rules. Great stuff again here and looking forward to the PPV, don’t leave us hanging too long!

Now I feel a tad obliged to our fair King. Oh, and that I enjoyed the show, too...


619s Feedback for Melvis' Two-Month Late Smackdown



The Green Day opening really is awful. Good on ya for opting for a change. Marilyn Manson’s “Fight Song” is off limits, though. I know you’re just itchin’ to steal something from AOW

I do thoroughly appreciate the three-man booth you have here, especially since it’s better than in real life at this time when Cole was having his annoying character on every show. You and iMac (I believe it’s iMac…) have me growing fond of the trios booth.

Nice subversion of usual wrestling fan faction logic (or maybe just TNA logic) in pointing out that Del Rio and Chavo have one big thing in common in a rich heritage. The average mind would just blatantly point out that they’re Mexican. But you are no average mind, and I appreciate the extra depth pointed out there. I’ve honestly never been that big a fan of Chavo, but the guy is as underrated and underappreciated as they come. I know he’s still gonna play second fiddle to Del Rio here, but I like that he’s getting some spotlight at the moment in this thing. Very solid match shown by the two men here, who as you mentioned, know how to work a match. Good shot on making Chavo look like he somewhat had a chance here, and at first I was a little torn at having Christian need help in defeating Chavo Guerrero of all people, but I swallowed it when I realized this was merely retribution from Edge for last week and it made things even. The beatdown was another retribution act on Edge’s part I see, and nice to see that Edge has no problem against the new odds stacked against him, even though Chavo doesn’t exactly come across as looking any kind of strong here. Still a solid opener that sets up the dominoes nicely for the rest of the night. Also, I caught that blink-and-you’ll-miss-it quip at Brodus’ real life persona. T’wasn’t lost on me, sire.

Sin Cara! Walking! WITH AUTHORITY~!!

I had a good chuckle at Barretta’s persona here. He seems like old school Rob Van Dam, just a little more motivated on the ‘guru’ side. I’m not sure what this says about Kofi and/or Rey’s mic skills/personas, but Barretta was definitely the take-home character, so to speak, in this segment.

While this looks like somewhat of a throwaway match on paper, I thought it was wonderful. Not because it was some kind of wrestling clinic or anything, but the characterization was superb. Reks is the bigger man, and you made great use of that to overwhelm Cara, who had to go get somewhat crafty for the win. It was a nice break from what we usually see in this scenario, usually by Rey Mysterio, who is usually booked to be able to beat guys twice his size pretty cleanly and decisively, but this was much more believable, just smart booking I suppose. I almost wanna say another match is in the cards for these two at somepoint, but I think this will suffice for now. Hope you don’t wait too long to give this guy real direction, though. Cara/McIntyre in the near future, perhaps…?

I know you’re not the biggest fan of McIntyre, so props on giving him some time here. Didn’t have to say a whole lot to know that he’s focused on what he wants.

High on Gabriel, are we? As yes, you did read my mind as I was marking a great deal when Gabriel locked in the Koji Clutch mid-move, very sick and very much a way to give Gabriel more than a fighting chance in the decision. Gabriel getting the W was indeed a surprise, although it shouldn’t be given his showcase last week, but still, a HUGE win for Gabriel here. A terrific way to make the team as a whole look like a complete and legitimate threat (which they never really looked like, to Kane/Show, even with the gold), as well as Gabriel himself in showing that last week wasn’t just for show. I’d continue gushing about Gabriel here, but alas, I think you get the point. The closing moments brought the challengers back up to speed, as it was necessary to have them regain a bit of honor here. I’m holding out for a Corre win, but you’ve made a very strong statement with the big guys. Oh, and can’t argue with what the crowd really wants here, but my guess is since they did do it on the take-home show, they might not do it come PPV time. Guess we’ll see then…

ER better rise to the challenge, my fair King. Lest you become the Court Jester . Oh, and while I’m looking at the build-up, where’s Swagger been tonight? Haven’t seen him yet, but I’ll keep a lookout…

Beth > McCool. Every damn day of the week.

Oh, there’s Swagger. As soon as Christian popped up for a second time tonight, I was almost sure an ambush would happen, as sure as sugar it did. He didn’t disappoint, either. I love the intense and focused Swagger you have going on as opposed to his somewhat goofy character we’re treated with in the real world. He always draws comparisons to Kurt Angle, and while he can’t match Angle’s charisma and mic skills, the guy has all the intensity Angle had and matching mat skills to boot. Not saying make Swagger into the next Angle like so many people would probably do, but I do like that Swagger’s characterization is leaning very much on being a lean, mean machine kind of persona that Angle perfected. Oh, and you were obviously having too much fun writing Christian being a ham in the actual interview himself. Christian/Edge somewhere down the line would be utterly fantastic from you should it happen (although you might have some strong competition with that one. Following Wolfy’s SummerSlam, he may have planted the seeds for this to happen as well…)

@ “Britishness”

Barrett came across as a real leader here, not brushing aside his personal troubles, but keeping his stable in mind in the long run. I’m more than certain at least Jackson will be involved in the Six-Pack match in some way, but I’m gonna beg you to make the Corre into something dominant. It’s no secret the WWE dropped the ball with them (not that they gave them much of a ball to work with, anyway), but in your hands, I think everyone in this stable could benefit by sticking together a good while longer. Whether it be Gabriel challenging Barrett somewhere down the line over leadership/IC title or whatever, I think there’s a legion of possibilities with these guys in the long run.

Love how you set up the teams’ respective characterizations without anyone uttering a single word. While the faces got their segment earlier in the show to say they were on one accord, they actually showed it when they got together in the ring by at least acting like they were a temporary joined force. The heels, meanwhile, had nothing but icy and awkward tension between them before the start of the bell, every last one of them with Sunday on their minds. Loved that display. As for the action in the match itself, no surprise the heels dominated for as long as they did, but enjoyed the small spotlight you had on Barretta, seeing as how I don’t know much about him (or not as much as I should). Nice to see you had everyone wrapped up in their own little feuds, especially when it cost McIntyre precious time. Terrific action throughout the whole thing, everything was very much high paced and showed all the talents these men had to offer. After the ref bump, I fully expected things to go into the heels favor and it did, making for somewhat marred finish to a great trios match. I don’t know if this was intended, but through the whole thing, Wade Barrett had the ‘smart man’s wrestler’ subtle air to him, as he didn’t get in the ring much to do a whole lot, fitting his character in staying in shape for the PPV. The cycle of violence at the very end was essentially expected with this many bodies to go around, and I see that Barrett’s earlier non-involvement was no accident. The champion stands high as he should, although I still want this guy pushed to the end of his sanity somehow.

People underestimate writing the RAW Rebound. It gets folks caught up a little and fills out show if nothing else.

Edge being the snarker he always is was very well done. And like I said on your last show, props on the extra bit of research into doing Ricardo’s full on introduction in comprehensible Spanish (Google translate is wonderful, no?) Also, props on doing something so unnecessary anyway; real heel tactic to legitimately get under people’s skin. Nothing truly outstanding introduced here, although I’m really glad you didn’t have them get physical, seeing as how we just got that a few minutes before the segment. Again, nothing really ZOMG worthy, but a very quality promo nonetheless that kept everyone very much in character. The calm-before-the-storm ending was the right route to go here I think, although its interesting considering the vow Edge made during the segment. He wanted to rip everyone limb from limb, and they were kind of tranquil about it, bar Ricardo and DAT TRUMPET PLAYA. This one’s really up in the air to who will walk out come Sunday and really looking forward to what goes on in that cage.


Overall, a very enjoyable take-home for Smackdown, although maybe not as strong as RAW’s. The only thing that wasn’t as on level as with RAW was the main event picture, which I wasn’t expecting to match what we got out of the elevated level Miz and Trips took to themselves on Monday, but every base was covered and everything looked great. Smackdown is a good deal more up-in-the-air than RAW is, with Christian/Swags, Edge/ADR, and the Tag Team title matches all truly up in the air and, of course, the free-for-all IC title match. That’s just smart booking, as everybody looks like legitimate threats to everybody else (except maybe Trent Barretta, bless his heart). Most looking forward to how The Corre/Barrett advance on, as well as what you’ll do with Swagger, but got me pumped for the PPV (which WILL deliver…right?) Don't think I've given too much insight in this feedback, but I tried If I could borrow the King’s stamp of approval really quick…BAM…thank you. This show has been endorsed and approved by Kirby himself. Bon.

Is it finished yet? No, it’s not. But massive thanks for the SD feedback and I hope this can keep you all occupied until I get the damn thing finished – as I said before, exams coming soon. Thanks for the patience. Oh, and 619, I’m going have to see how many miniscule character traits I can throw in and see how many you notice, you’re like a hawk with this stuff.

Anyway, to the preview for my first pay-per-view, Extreme Rules 2011. Not sure if I’ll do a T-minus-three-hours post or not, seeing as I have a notes post planned that can accompany predictions results afterwards, but we’ll see how it comes along and if there’s anything I want to say before I eventually post it.

I imagine I’ll give 500 credits or something to whoever gets the most predictions correct, too.




Extreme Rules 2011
St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa, Florida | 1st May 2011



In the main event of Wrestlemania Twenty-Seven, first time WWE Champion The Miz extended his reign as the so-called ‘most must-see WWE Champion of all time’ when The Rock’s interference cost John Cena the contest. Since then, The Miz’s ego has been blown further out of proportion, the Awesome One lauding his victories and lengthy title reign over anyone who comes asking, and anyone who doesn’t. Meanwhile, we’ve seen Cena and The Rock ‘call it even’ on Raw, and now the former ‘Champ’ has his sights set on the championship he couldn’t get his hands on at the Grandest Stage of Them All in Atlanta. Cena demanded another shot because of the ill means by which he lost the match at Wrestlemania, and in one of the last decisions made by the anonymous Raw General Manager, Cena was granted a shot after he pinned Alex Riley in tag team action. Now Cena and Miz are at one another’s throats, each stating their case for why THEY are the rightful champion.

But there’s a third factor. Triple H could NOT break the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania, and when he returned to Monday Night Raw, he made an immediate impact, hitting Riley with a Pedigree to make a statement that he was coming for the WWE Title. The following week, it was Cena as Special Referee as the Game beat The Miz, but Cena gave him an Attitude Adjustment after the bell, and this past Monday, Cena and Triple H went toe-to-toe, only for the WWE Champion and his associate Riley to end the bout in a No Contest with simultaneous chairshots. Tonight at Extreme Rules, these three men will fly the flag in the banner match type of the entire event; an Extreme Rules match, where anything goes and a series of weapons are sure to be used so that these three men, each with their individual grievances towards one another, can punish and brutalise as they see fit. Only one man can hold the biggest prize in the entire industry – will it be the ‘most must-see WWE Champion of all time’? Or can John Cena retake the title that slipped his grasp so cruelly a month ago? Or will it be Triple H, desperate to recapture his fighting spirit after his loss to the Undertaker, who can win the title that has defined his career for over a decade?



Alberto Del Rio’s victory in the 2011 Royal Rumble entitled him to a World Heavyweight Title shot at Wrestlemania, but when he tried to use his associate Brodus Clay to give him an advantage, the former NXT Rookie was stopped by Edge’s ringside aide, Christian. Del Rio went on to lose that match, while Edge smashed in the hood of Del Rio’s car in a post-match victory celebration. While Del Rio’s night was nothing special in Atlanta, he immediately sought to put things right, claiming another World Title shot through questionable means the following Friday on SmackDown, and quickly assembling the ‘Alberto Administration’ of himself, ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, secretary Rosa Mendes, enforcers Brodus Clay and Chavo Guerrero, in addition to a trumpeter from a fiesta band to laud his accomplishments through music. Del Rio has since used the Administration to its full capability, including a brutal attack on Edge himself in which Del Rio, Clay and Guerrero left the Rated R Superstar flat on his back.

But Edge has never been one to take injustice lying down. He spoke to SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long about securing a Steel Cage Match against Del Rio tonight to counteract the presence of the Administration, and not two days ago on SmackDown he bludgeoned his former associate Chavo with a kendo stick for his actions against him. Tonight, Edge has to put his precious World Heavyweight Championship on the line once again, against a dangerous young opponent, inside one of the WWE’s most unforgiving match types. Del Rio has promised to bring in a ‘new era’ for SmackDown, vowing to become the new leader of the Friday night locker room when he reigns supreme inside the cage tonight, while Edge has similarly raised the stakes, promising to run through the Administration with con-chair-tos after the match when HE walks out victorious. Del Rio is fighting for youth, Edge for experience; can the Rated R Superstar finally bury his demons and rid the WWE of one of its premier pests in the Alberto Administration? Or will Alberto Del Rio bring in the ‘new era’ on SmackDown with a famous victory over Friday nights’ favourite hell-raiser?



It’s strange to think that less than three years ago, CM Punk had just won his first World Heavyweight Championship and was the toast of the WWE Universe. Nowadays, the Second City Saint is a bitter, vengeful competitor, and his recent exchanges with Randy Orton have shown that.

Starting at WWE Royal Rumble in January when Punk cost Orton his WWE Title match, these two continued to trade blows and words as the weeks progressed towards Wrestlemania, with Punk claiming Orton’s punt at Unforgiven 2008, the one that caused him to forfeit his World Title, was one that deserved the most vicious of punishments. The only problem – Orton had no intention of laying down and accepting said punishment, instead unleashing several more punts, this time on the members of Punk’s New Nexus, including David Otunga, Mason Ryan and Husky Harris, none of whom have been seen on Raw since. At Wrestlemania, Punk failed to achieve retribution when Orton caught him with an RKO as the Second City Saint came off the top rope, but he kept on his quest the night afterwards, demanding another match with the Viper. Eventually, Orton agreed, desperate to get his hands on the man who refused to leave him alone and would plague him in any match leading to a title shot until he accepted his challenge. Again, however, there’s a problem – Orton told Punk he wanted them to face off in a Last Man Standing Match, meaning this bout might not just be the end of the tale for these two men… it could mean the end of a career.

Between two men who despise everything about the other, who will go the extra mile and lay their opponent down for the ten seconds? Will Randy Orton once again reach into his sadistic depths to brutalise Punk? Or will it be the Straight-edge Saviour whose so-called ‘faith’ drives him to a performance capable of finally, finally getting his revenge by beheading the snake?



Speaking of rivalries that stretch back years, two men that have a storied past are SmackDown’s Christian and Jack Swagger. Both ECW Champions in early 2009, Christian stole two wins at Backlash and Judgment Day, using an exposed turnbuckle and Swagger’s singlet straps to pick up wins on those nights, respectively. While Swagger moved to Raw to pursue ‘bigger things’, the two met again at Wrestlemania XXVI in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match when Swagger’s victory came after he bludgeoned Christian from the ladder with the briefcase. Four weeks ago, the pair collided again, as during Christian’s match with Alberto Del Rio for a World Title shot, Swagger made a shocking appearance to cost Captain Charisma the bout.

Swagger told the world that Christian was the last person who deserved a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship when HE had been overlooked for so long; Christian, meanwhile, was hoping for a dream bout against his best friend Edge tonight. Instead, he walks into Tampa knowing he must make Swagger QUIT in order to bury his past and look on to a new future. That’s no easy task, as the All-American American has claimed on several occasions, as while Swagger is somewhat of a submissions expert, Christian has never been a man specialising in breaking an opponent’s will, instead opting for his tactics of cunning and speed. But with Swagger’s cold backstage assault on his opponent two nights ago on SmackDown, it looks like Christian’s ankle may be in no state to withstand Swagger putting it in the Ankle Lock again. Tonight is a true test of Christian’s will – if he wants to be World Heavyweight Champion, the so-called ‘Phenomenal Athlete’ stands in his way, and he must find a way to make him quit, as well as possibly sidestepping the infuriating Michael Cole, if he wants to do so. It’s going to be a merciless contest, and the winner will have to dig deeper than they ever have in their careers yet.



Extreme Rules marks the start of the new wrestling calendar after a heart-pounding New Year celebration at Wrestlemania Twenty-Seven; this also means it’s time for many competitors in the WWE to make a fresh start. Two such men who want to put their Wrestlemania memories behind them are Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler. While Bryan couldn’t retake his United States Title against Sheamus due to a No Contest ruling, Ziggler was embarrassed by Snooki, Trish Stratus and John Morrison in tag team action. Both men are hoping to break through the proverbial glass ceiling, especially Ziggler, who’s tasted barely ten minutes of the World Title back in February of this year and wants more. Neither man can stomach the other getting to the WWE Title before they do themselves, and this past Monday on Raw, they told each other why; Ziggler called himself ‘perfection’, in stark contrast to the man he called ‘the original vanilla midget’. Bryan says his drive and will to compete at the highest level will lead him towards a vital win here tonight, and asked the question if Ziggler was ready for such a huge contest. They’ve exchanged words – Bryan even took it one step further when he put Ziggler in the LeBell Lock on Raw a few weeks ago, and it’s clear that both these men have a point to prove in a Ladder Match sure to be filled with athleticism, risk-taking and most of all, the desire to just out-SHOW the other. This match is about pride between two men who would love nothing more than to unhook that contract, securing a WWE Title shot at Over The Limit, and possibly more importantly, denying that chance to the other man. It’s Bryan and Ziggler, two youngsters gunning for the biggest chance of their lives, in a combustible environment – will Gail Kim or Vickie Guerrero make their mark? Or will it just be pure competition between two of Raw’s most talented young superstars?



On the first SmackDown after Wrestlemania, Wade Barrett and the rest of The Corre beat the team of the Big Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston and Santino Marella in a rematch of the humiliating defeat they suffered in Atlanta. That Friday night, Barrett dealt Santino the Wasteland to declare The Corre’s momentum well and truly re-founded, and since then, he’s been determined to make sure his Intercontinental Title has stayed in his grasp. Tonight, however, he faces a huge challenge; he has five men to contend with in a Hardcore, Elimination version of the traditional Six-Pack Challenge, with the last man not pinned or made to submit leaving Tampa with the title. Barrett faces one haunting issue, though – after the lights went out in his match with Kofi Kingston, the Englishman went on a ‘hunt’ to discover who was responsible, only to unearth nothing and face a ten thousand dollar fine from Teddy Long because of the roughness of his actions. He stood tall two nights ago on SmackDown after his team were victorious in the main event, but with Barrett at the moment, it seems that nothing is assured.

And Barrett’s competition are no pushovers, either. Rey Mysterio is a former two-time World Heavyweight Champion; Cody Rhodes beat the Ultimate Underdog at Wrestlemania under controversial circumstances and the pair have been at each other’s throats ever since, a rivalry stretching back to when Mysterio forced Rhodes to wear his plastic mask by accidentally breaking his nose. Elsewhere in the field, Barrett must contend with the man he won the title from, the athletic former three-time Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston, as well as the exciting Trent Barreta. Drew McIntyre, the last man in this match, has his own problems with Barreta, calling him an ‘insubordinate, petulant child’, and those issues could well explode in tonight’s match-up as well. In such a dangerous, first-time-ever contest, these six men will vie for one of the WWE’s most storied titles, and it’s not going to be down to the best wrestler here – it’ll be who can adapt the quickest to their hardcore surroundings.



John Morrison, despite winning alongside Trish Stratus and Snooki at Wrestlemania Twenty-Seven, has had a terrible few weeks in the aftermath of it. Starting with a loss to United States Champion Sheamus twenty-four hours afterwards, Morrison’s new wrestling year got worse when he was Brogue Kicked over the crowd barricade, and understandably denied a title shot when he campaigned for it afterwards. Eventually, a win over William Regal was enough to secure him a title shot thanks to the input of Raw General Manager Jerry “The King” Lawler, much to the disdain of the reigning champion. The Celtic Warrior, who lost to Morrison several times at the end of last year when he was King of the Ring, wanted to put the Prince of Parkour out of his mind and move on to new pastures. However, he must deal with Morrison once again, and given the high-flyer’s tendency to pull out stunning wins when you least expect them, Sheamus’ undefeated run since winning the title may be under severe threat.

But this is Extreme Rules, which means there’s a second line to this match; Diva’s Champion Eve Torres has been plagued by the ambitions of the Red Carpet Diva, Melina, and it’s for that reason that Jerry Lawler made this match a Winner Take All tag team affair, with Morrison and Eve teaming up to face Sheamus and Melina. Moments after the announcement on Monday night, Sheamus hit Morrison with a Brogue Kick, while Eve took a Superkick to the jaw from her respective opponent, and it could just be that same killer instinct that decides who leaves with two of Raw’s titles here tonight in Tampa. In this bout, it’s men against men and women against women, and the first fall WILL result in a title changing hands, as either Sheamus or Eve are destined to lose their title when the bell rings to signal the end tonight. Will John Morrison finally prove that he has the ‘edge’ that so many people have doubted he has? Will Sheamus finally prove the opposite – that Morrison just isn’t of the calibre to be a champion in the WWE? Will Eve Torres pay back Melina for all the underhanded attacks and brash words? Or will the Red Carpet Diva claim her place at the top of the WWE’s women’s division like she’s been suggesting for weeks on end?



Big Show and Kane have held the WWE Tag Team Titles before, and when they did, they shook the foundations of the WWE, both metaphorically and literally. When they made their return to the ranks of WWE tag team action in early 2011, they found themselves matched up against the current champions in the form of The Corre’s Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater. While normally no team poses a threat to the World’s Largest Athlete and the Big Red Machine, Gabriel and Slater have done their best to disrupt the behemoths’ usual path of destruction by picking up singles wins over each of their opponents in the lead-up to tonight’s event. The most recent of these came this past Friday on SmackDown when Gabriel’s Drop Toe Hold brought Big Show’s head crashing into the middle turnbuckle, giving him the opportunity to unleash the deadly 450 Splash to collect the win. While Gabriel and Slater have certainly shown their talents inside the ropes recently, they’ve come under fire from various critics for their possible upcoming struggle in putting either of their opponents through a table. Kane and Show have done such an act as recently as two days ago, with both Tag Team Champions going through the same table courtesy of simultaneous Chokeslams, and now the pressure is on in this bout to see whether the two young champions can step up against the heaviest team ever to hold championship gold in WWE history. Slater and Gabriel might be the champions, but their champion’s advantage is well and truly nullified in this match – can they somehow find a way to overcome their monstrous opponents, especially with the whole of the St. Pete Times Forum sure to be cheering on the challengers?

Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan

HHH vs John Cena which I think you are building to doesn't need a title. I think Bryan vs The Miz could be very interesting.

Before I make any predictions I just wanna say how much I love your work and this thread is no different. Can't wait for this card

WWE Championship – Extreme Rules Match
The Miz (c) vs John Cena vs Triple H


Huge main event here, I'm really not undecided. It will either be Cena or Miz and based off the top contenders match I'd think it'd be Cena vs. Ziggler since Miz-Bryan has been done to death. But I'm not sure. I'll go Miz and assume Bryan will just get a title shot on Raw that won't be much of anything and then allowing Miz and Cena to finish their feud and eventaully lead to Miz-Triple H.

World Heavyweight Championship – Steel Cage Match
Edge (c) vs Alberto Del Rio

I see Edge winning here, Christian versus Edge for SummerSlam? Possiblibly Edge's final match. Thats the way to go and he deserves a good reign to close it out. Plus I think an Edge-Swagger feud is possible. Also Edge-Rhodes or Edge-Barrett. There is a lot more for Edge as Champion than Del-Rio. Plus Edge is just the best. Keep the strap on him.


Last Man Standing Match
CM Punk vs Randy Orton

Begin the Jesus Push


I Quit Match
Christian vs Jack Swagger

Christian will win, I can't see him saying "I Quit" but Swagger will put up a very tough fight and will be easier to play off quiting because he just say he was preserving himself and is smarter than everyone.


No. 1 Contender To The WWE Title – Ladder Match
Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan

I suppose of if Miz is winning Extreme Rules then Bryan is winning here but I see Title match coming on Raw the following night. This will be big for Bryan but he's not getting a real chance of winning the WWE Title anytime soon.

Intercontinental Championship – Six-Pack Hardcore Elimination Challenge
Wade Barrett (c) vs Kofi Kingston vs Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio vs Drew McIntyre vs Trent Barreta

Don't drop the ball with the Corre please, keep the title on Barrett for a long time until he advances into the World Title Picture.

United States and Diva’s Championships – Winner Take All Match
Sheamus (c) and Melina vs John Morrison and Eve Torres (c)

There is better things for Morrison to do than the US Title and Melina is better than Eve. Makes since to me than Sheamus' team is winning.

WWE Tag Team Championships – Tag Team Tables Match
Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater (c) vs Big Show and Kane

I'm serious. Push the Corre to the moon Smackdown.

1. Predict the match order.
1 - Ladder Match 2 - Six Pack Challenge 3- Winner Takes All 4.) I Quit Match 5.) Tag Team Titles 6.) Last Man Standing 7.) Steel Cage 8.) Extreme Rules
2. Who will take the fall in the Winner Take All match? Eve
3. Who will be last eliminated in the Six-Pack Challenge? Rey
4. What will be the shortest match? Tables Match
5. What will be the longest match? Extreme Rules
6. How many titles will change hands? (at least one because of WTA) 1

8. WWE Championship – Extreme Rules Match
The Miz (c) vs John Cena vs Triple H

Gotta go with Miz here, he needs this a whole lot more than Cena or Trips do. Having come off a HUGE win at Mania, having him lose here will just derail all that momentum.

7. World Heavyweight Championship – Steel Cage Match
Edge (c) vs Alberto Del Rio

This one is incredibly tough to call as you’ve got a lot of possibilities with both men as champion. Edge has a dream feud with Christian over the title, Del Rio still on his tail, Swagger potentially. Del Rio has a rematch with Edge, Christian, Mysterio, Taker perhaps as well as the Administration taking control of things. It’ll be so entertaining either way you go but I’m gonna go with Del Rio to take the gold here. I won’t complain either way though.

6. Last Man Standing Match
CM Punk vs Randy Orton

Punk to get retribution after his Mania loss. Please.

5. I Quit Match
Christian vs Jack Swagger

Very tough to call again, I can see an argument for both men here. Christian’s ankle will no doubt play a big role and that could be what tips it Swagger’s way, as well as Michael Cole’s involvement, screwy finish? Christian though could do with a big win to propel him into the title picture and with Edge possibly going out the door sometime soon if you keep up with real life, then Berto needs a new rival. I’ll go with Captain Charisma.

4. No. 1 Contender To The WWE Title – Ladder Match
Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan

With Miz hopefully winning the title match, gotta go with Bryan here. A great chance to showcase both men though here and a Miz/Bryan feud for the title or even just a one off match could really help Bryan look legit.

1. Intercontinental Championship – Six-Pack Hardcore Elimination Challenge
Wade Barrett (c) vs Kofi Kingston vs Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio vs Drew McIntyre vs Trent Barreta

The Smackdown side of things really is ridiculous to call. I could make a case for any of these six in all honesty. I would like Barrett in a way to win and have a nice run with the gold, however at the same time I wanna see him drop it and move on to better things, namely the Deadman. I’m gonna go with a final two of Barrett and Mysterio with Rey taking the gold due to a ‘distraction’.

2. United States and Diva’s Championships – Winner Take All Match
Sheamus (c) and Melina vs John Morrison and Eve Torres (c)

Very hard to call here. Gonna go with Sheamus and Melina though as Melina will make a much more interesting Divas champion than Eve while Sheamus can look like a beast with a lengthy reign hopefully.

3. WWE Tag Team Championships – Tag Team Tables Match
Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater (c) vs Big Show and Kane

I really hope these two get the win. A victory over these two monsters could really make these two as a team. Defeat and it could go completely the other way. Gabriel hitting the 450 on one of the giants through a table please.

1. Predict the match order. Done
2. Who will take the fall in the Winner Take All match? Eve
3. Who will be last eliminated in the Six-Pack Challenge? Barrett(due to ‘other’ factors)
4. What will be the shortest match? Tables Match
5. What will be the longest match? Hard to call but gonna go with the I.C. title elimination being a show stealer.
6. How many titles will change hands? (at least one because of WTA) Three. Divas, I.C and World title.

Very much looking forward to it and you know I’ll be back to leave some feedback. Good luck!

I wantz me doze credz

~ Prediction Template ~

8. WWE Championship – Extreme Rules Match
The Miz (c) vs John Cena vs Triple H

Mizzy needs to win this, as I am going for Bryan to beat Ziggler. Miz vs Bryan would be good to see over the title, and also Over The Limit is by no means one of the biggest events so it can be allowed a "non-blockbuster" WWE Championship Match, to showcase two potential big platers for the future. Also, I'm going for Cena vs HHH at Over The Limit to give Raw its "big match" on the card.

7. World Heavyweight Championship – Steel Cage Match
Edge (c) vs Alberto Del Rio

As much as I love Del Rio in this thread, I think that Edge needs to hold the gold for long enough for Christian to eventually turn on him. I don't think giving Del Rio a stable was needed if he is able to beat Edge in a Steel Cage one on one anyway, as it renders the stable and then the cage stipulation pointless. I think Del Rio will maybe get another crack later on down the line though. I must say that I LOVE the Administration (DAAH DAAH DAH DAH DAHHHHHHHHHHH) and the trumpet player props for keeping him around.

6. Last Man Standing Match
CM Punk vs Randy Orton

The New Nexus will return and I think they'll cost Orton the win.

5. I Quit Match
Christian vs Jack Swagger

Swagger needs this to move onto joining the WHC hunt, but I think it will have some possible Cole involvement. Also, Christian would be frustrated by the loss to someone like Swagger after their history and it would be part of his eventual turn on Edge.

And it is no secret how much you like Mr Swagger either.


4. No. 1 Contender To The WWE Title – Ladder Match
Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan

Bryan vs Miz at OTL plz. Not sure where Ziggles goes from here though.

2. Intercontinental Championship – Six-Pack Hardcore Elimination Challenge
Wade Barrett (c) vs Kofi Kingston vs Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio vs Drew McIntyre vs Trent Barreta

Now, I think that Kofi is going to win because:
a) Cody vs Rey feud does not need the Intercontinental Title involved.
b) McIntyre or Barretta aren't really big enough to win the gold at the moment.
c) A slight dimming of the lights would then cause Barrett to eat a Trouble in Paradise to give Kofi the title. Also, as I have Slater and Gabriel retaining, some tension in The Corre could be started as I think Barrett is going to be more interested in his own issues than being happy for his team mates, which will cause the friction to start between the members.


3. United States and Diva’s Championships – Winner Take All Match
Sheamus (c) and Melina vs John Morrison and Eve Torres (c)

Sheamus and Melina are much better champions, not much else to it really.

1. WWE Tag Team Championships – Tag Team Tables Match
Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater (c) vs Big Show and Kane

The champs to claim to literally giant scalps here, and I think it will be Big Show going through the table somehow (450 Splash?) and as I mentioned in the IC Title bit, The Corre will all become focused with their own problems to care about the others.


1. Predict the match order. Done that!
2. Who will take the fall in the Winner Take All match? Morrison
3. Who will be last eliminated in the Six-Pack Challenge? Wade Barrett
4. What will be the shortest match? Winner Takes All
5. What will be the longest match? Last Man Standing
6. How many titles will change hands? (at least one because of WTA) Two (Divas and IC)

I can't describe how much I am looking forward to this and I am sure this is going to be epic. So good luck, My King.

Your Weirdest Peasant.
