First of all, I find it quite funny that I had those concerns in the above post and you immediately addressed them in the news and notes, especially the SFC thing. Secondly, putting it here instead of the thread itself, well done to you (and iMac ) for the interview; it was a great read. You're a very humble guy and tbh you should give yourself credit for both some terrific writing and some terrific bookiing in this thread. Congrats on your five years too.

Oblivion Feedback

Starting with Hussan/Punk is a move I liked. Far too often at the moment (looking at you WWE, Punk/Bryan/Kane opening Raw constantly) a main event feud or match is put first - I don't mind it, I do it myself, and will do with one of my upcoming shows, but it can't be done consistently or it devalues the 'main event' status of it. Rant over - basically, I appreciate the mic/segment time you've devoted to giving this feud one last big moment before the pay-off. Hassan is a strong midcard heel figure and a solid inaugural Dynasty Champion, and in a way his opening lines set up well for a Punk interruption, the classic cheap heat and anti-American attitude coming across perfectly. Face Punk 2007 is never an easy character, as he's still in his 'my drug is competition' phase with only a little of the sarcastic attitude that defines him nowadays (I also think he's a better heel but that's another discussion ) but you write him well. His picking apart of Hassan's character really gives another layer to the feud and of course the 'street rat' metaphor is one that characterises the whole thing so it was good to see you reference it. One small thing - you used 'conceded' a lot but you were almost definitely looking for 'conceited' in that context. Word choice issue. I'll agree with cp954, too; I think the real life Punk/Jericho feud veered a little too closely to this and chances are, when Y2J and Punk sat down with writers to figure it out, Punk said they could do the alcohol thing, but only if he didn't actually drink any of it. In terms of real life people, I don't think Punk himself would let someone pour two bottles of JD down his throat. Otherwise, a vicious assault from Hassan to really get him some heat, and almost certainly the final knoll to his title reign. Booking 101 suggests Punk gets his revenge, and the title, at A Very Merry War, but knowing me I'll have a huge discussion about this during my predictions anyway. To summarise: strong characterisation, good booking, well written, great way to open the show and make this match a must-see next week.

The hinted return of Christian is very promising. Jericho/Christian for the title, especially with the involvement of Lashley in the Legion and even Torrie Wilson (I assume), is the big money feud. Months of intricate booking preparing to pay off, and I can't wait to see you pull the trigger. Christian winning the title would be THE feel-good moment of the company.

Two athletic guys like Low Ki and Doane with a nice fast-paced match here, plenty to get excited about. Doane going over was of course the correct decision, and his recovery continues, especially with demolishing Evans afterwards, too. This was good stuff - sensibly booked for Doane's sake, with a good match in there to boot. "Whaddya mean what cost? It doesn't cost him anything!" was also JBL's line of the night.

"Everybody loves Carlito" reminds me very much of the cocky but doesn't-take-himself-too-seriously heel Carlito who's always fun to read. Contrary to cp (although the only thing I disagree with in his feedback), I actually really liked his debut promo. He got some cheap heat and established his character in a matter of a few well-aimed lines. I'm actually a fan of Super Crazy, if only because of his hilarious gimmick and killer finisher, but of course he had to get squashed here for Carlito's benefit and 'Lito looked damn good. Apple spitting afterwards was elementary and a good start for Carlito in AOW. You've got a long list of entertaining heels at the moment, so it'd be nice to see Kofi or Black enter the fray just to have another face or two to let these heels play off them. And at some point, push Super Crazy plz. He's Super AND he's Crazy.

"Uh... let him in, but stand really close to me." Brilliant. Finlay not revealing his motives just yet is fine, allows him to do something at A Very Merry War.

TAFKA Rob Van Dam? I know one of the main issues with this angle so far has been its closeness to Christian's, and the eerie feel of this linked a little to the 'Man on the Moon' promo, but you've given RVD a new spin with this and the empty arena was just chilling. Guessing Finlay will come out and interrupt him next week, sparking their feud for real, but hey, who knows. Nice little promo from RVD to add the next reason to watch A Very Merry War.

Samoa Joe is an asskicker. Got it. Reminds me a lot of Orton, the strong, silent 'hero'. Very effective.

BIG win for the Samoan Fight Club, and exactly what I was hoping for - a 15 minute match, competitive, with Manu getting the big clean (relatively) pin at the end and chanting "We destroy" during the pinfall. Great staggered action afterwards, each team gets a bit of the spotlight, but now it could go any which way. I thought Manu came out of this looking damn good, especially, but on every level, this tag team feud got very interesting here. Don't really know which way it's going, though I could see the Sons pulling it out so we have new face champions vs Mercs, SFC, American Made... again, not sure. Very unpredictable with your shows at the moment. Good stuff.

Agreed with the above in that 'HBK' then 'Mr. Michaels' was a continuity issue but otherwise this interaction between HBK and Danielson was a good way to give a little closure to Danielson's actions a few weeks ago. Also sells the idea that HBK might not get another chance to say this stuff, maybe playing the 'just in case' card and making next week's big match all the more vital. Short but sweet.

Thought the show was running a little long - guessing you go 9 til 10:30? If it's 10:25, I wondered how you were going to pull off the main event... and then I got it. Wright/HBK wouldn't have ended clean, so ending the show this way is just fine. You solidified Danielson as one of the real do-gooders (as well as being a bit of a 'come on, I'll take you all', which is the badass side of him that's easy to get behind) and obviously gave the Legion some more reason for us to hate them with the numbers game taking over. Joe following up on his earlier threats also shows him off to be deadly ahead of the match with the equally-dangerous Lashley, and you made sure they didn't do much to one another ahead of the contest; we can see the cowardly element of the Legion under Jericho, what with them essentially running from Joe, and overall, I'd say the whole thing worked. Everyone's character was developed to a degree, it was time efficient, and it hyped up both HBK/Jericho and Joe/Lashley next week. My one concern is Jericho taking the Superkick AGAIN, seeing as it's happened so much now, and it reminds me a lot of Jericho/Edge in real life ahead of WM26, where Edge kept Spearing Jericho every week and he lost quite a lot of credibility as champion as a result. Here, I'll let it slide tbh because he has the Legion to make sure he's always considered a threat, but maybe it's something to be wary of? Not sure. Keeping the theme of my nods to the small details in your shows, Joe not helping HBK is great - it means the face/heel dynamic doesn't define these characters, while it shows continuity in the mini-rivalry they've had in the past, and just in general it shows that Joe sticks to his principles. Strong, well-thought-out end to the show.

Overall, very good take-home show. Unsurprisingly, you focused on the matches set for next week, but you also got Doane and Carlito in there with much-needed and much-expected wins, respectively. Always a good thing. There was the occasional small thing I didn't like (the realism issue with Punk comes to mind immediately, possibly the number of times you had heels standing tall as well?) but all in all, I enjoyed it, and that's the key bit. Your characters and stories will perpetually be the reason to read this thread, not that there's anything wrong with anything else, but I'll use one of my favourite writing phrases to define it - the 'snowflake cast'. Each one of your characters is different, even down to the dichotomy in Low Jack, silent versus outgoing, and that means each feud is already half-written when you get to it. You have some terrific stuff in store, especially in the Christian and RVD angles that we've received snippets of in this show, and I'll give you my full insight into the individual matches in my predictions when you've done us a preview. AOW is looking healthier than ever - the King approves, stamp of approval and all that jazz. Now FEED US MORE.

Default Re: Presenting AOW: Art of War Wrestling - The Greatest Affair

I said this wouldn't be up too long. Wanna get this thing up pretty soon, like in a week soon, but before the actual preview, a few notes. As both of your gentlemen noted (thnx in bunches for the feedback, btw ), the Punk/Hassan stuff may have conjured up far too many parallels to the Punk/Jericho stuff in real life. Trust me, I've had that segment planned since before their Wrestlemania program, and being straight-edge myself, I will say having someone force alcohol down you is kind of a legit nightmare, so it's not mutually exclusive to just Punk/Jericho. Second, it was actually mostly an homage to PARANoIR's EPW. He did a long-running Punk/Hassan feud and had Hassan pour alcohol down Punk's throat at one point, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Or you could say I openly stole/borrowed the idea from him if it makes you feel better. And as for questioning the realism of Punk willing to have whiskey thrown down his throat...it could be water, right . As for returning this stuff - Melvis, I'm actually only two matches away from finishing your ER feedback, cp I might can get back to you (welcome back, btw ). I proly owe that iMac guy too for putting up with me for three hours.

For thread stuffs itself, no news, notes, or .com vids this time. I'll hold those off 'til after AVMW. The next batch of notes should have more information on the offseason that seems to have everybody peaked (or peeved). Anywho, onto the show -






12.26.07

The Hammerstein Ballroom – Manhattan, New York City, New York

~A VERY MERRY WAR~
*Special 2-Hour Supershow*
OFFICIAL PREVIEW

~AOW Dynasty Championship~
Muhammad Hassan(c) v. CM Punk


“You’ve become exactly what you hate…!”

The classic American notion of pulling yourself up by your boostraps and making something of yourself is an idea that’s been passed on from generation to generation of Americans. In the art of professional wrestling, this notion could very much be the literal MO of every single man to ever step in the ring. But for CM Punk, it’s not just a cliché statement – it’s a way of life. CM Punk has never been one to live in luxury; never one to complain about the way he was brought up, but always one to endlessly work hard and remain addicted to only one thing – competition. The notoriously straight-edge competitor has made it no secret he’s here for one thing and one thing only – to be a wrestler, doing exactly that for weeks on end fending off everything the Dynasty Champion had to throw at him.

Muhammad Hassan, meanwhile, has much more staggered motives. Being born and raised in the United States as Punk was, Hassan hasn’t always seen the brightest side of pulling up those bootstraps. Forever bitter about the American audience rejecting an Arab-American man trying to make it, Hassan came into a fortune before coming to AOW and has not been shy about spending a dime, using it to fund some Mercenaries, a $50,000 Challenge, and even a bounty hunt on CM Punk. In retaining his Dynasty Championship at World Ablaze, Hassan made sure to send a message to CM Punk by planting the face of his mentor into the canvas repeatedly, taking him out of action. Even so, Punk came into possession of the $50,000 given to him by Storm, leading Hassan to want it back at all cost, it being heavily hinted that perhaps his finances may not be as well suited to handle his demands.

The final edition of Oblivion before AVMW saw both Punk and Hassan’s very natures dismantled by their rival – Hassan’s penchant for being held down by “The Man” was reversed when Punk dropped the bomb on him that the champion was now, in fact, “The Man” that he hated so much. As for Hassan, he forced CM Punk to face what he hated when he drowned Punk in two bottles of Jack Daniels before destroying Punk’s spine with the Camel Clutch. With so much fueling both men, who will be able to walk out of AVMW with the Dynasty Championship – and their restored dignity – held high?


Rob Van Dam makes an announcement

“…the man they call Rob Van Dam. Is. Dead.”

Since the inception of Art of War Wrestling, Rob Van Dam has been the man at the center of the universe. At the forefront of every AOW title opportunity, RVD came up short on his chance at World Ablaze through no real fault of his own. He was given another chance two weeks later, but if he lost, he would lose the chance to compete for any title ever again. Once again, Van Dam lost through no fault of his own, as Finlay had a huge hand in Van Dam losing this time. Even through the shenanigans, it was determined that Van Dam’s verdict will stand – he could not compete for any titles. This announcement seemed to shake the ego driven Van Dam to his core, developing some kind of dissociative personality disorder, his ego caving in on itself. This last week, he went so far as to declare the man named Rob Van Dam ‘dead’. He also let us know that he would be present at A Very Merry War to make a statement regarding the rest of his career. What could Rob Van Dam possibly have on his mind...?


~Grudge Match~
The Samoan Submission Machine Samoa Joe v. The Perfect Warrior Bobby Lashley

“Now it’s just time to go out there and clean out the scum of this company by kickin’ some ass.”

Rob Van Dam didn’t lose himself on his own. After forcing Christian Cage out of the company, Bobby Lashley set out to shock the AOW world by joining forces alongside AOW Champion Chris Jericho and Paul “The Great” Wright to form the Worthy Legion, who appear to be hell bent on introducing Jericho’s idea of a ‘utopia’ of sorts in AOW. After taking out Mick Foley, running out Christian, and sending his friend Rob Van Dam over the edge, Samoa Joe made a very stern and unshaken vow to take down every single person responsible one piece at a time – and first, he was gonna start with this man, The Dominator, Bobby Lashley.

After Joe publically announced he was going to try and rid AOW of the ‘scum’ that was holding it down, Lashley wasted no time making Joe pay for those words by costing him an AOW Championship opportunity with a Dominator on the entrance ramp. A few weeks later, Joe felt Lashley’s wrath again when he was gored through the barricades after a match. But woe is Lashley, as he may have further infuriated a vengeful titan. With Joe claiming there’s no more thoughts, no more words, he says its straight up asskickin’ time. Who will come out on top in this clash of the titans – will it be the perfect warrior Bobby Lashley? Or a man who has actually yet to be pinned or made submit in AOW in the Samoan Submission Machine hell-bent on a mission…?


*4-WAY LADDER MATCH*
~AOW Tag Team Championship~
World’s Greatest Tag Team(c) v. American Made v. Sons of the Dungeon v. Samoan Fight Club


“We asked for competition…and we got exactly what we asked for.”

The World’s Greatest Tag Team has been on an absolute roll in the tag team division, defeating The Hooliganz in what many hail as the greatest set of matches in AOW’s young history for those Tag Team Championships. They have since defended it and upheld their ‘code of honor’, keeping the hearts of champions. Still, with the pool of tag teams in AOW very shallow at the time, the World’s Greatest had proven their worth for the moment…

Enter the October 17th edition of Oblivion, which not only saw the first ever AOKO match, but gave us the debuts of not one, not two, but THREE young and incredible tag teams – the Sons of the Dungeon, American Made, and the Samoan Fight Club. While the Sons had been advertised for a while, American Made interrupted not just their ads, but interrupted their debut match and even defeated them. But once the match was over, the team of Siaki and Manu made their name known by destroying the Sons of the Dungeon. From then on, all three of these teams have been linked somewhat, leading to the Tag Team Turmoil match at World Ablaze that saw the Sons take control, but be dismantled by the SFC inexplicably. This allowed American Made to pick up the pieces and become #1 contenders. The very next show, the SFC picked up where they left off and not only injured Psicosis of the Mexicools’ ribs, but assaulted the Sons backstage and took them out.

Fast forward a few weeks later, with American Made bad-mouthing the World’s Greatest Tag Team for a while and the tag champs asking for ‘more, better competition’. When their championship match was granted, they managed to again get the Samoan Fight Club to destroy the champs before the bell even rang, striking some kind of deal with the Club. But even after a grueling fifteen minute contest, and a reversed referee decision, the WGTT retained, leaving AM very vexed that they had no title and nothing to settle their agreement with the SFC about. With that in mind, the SFC went about destroying Nameth and Hagar, but not before they were assaulted by the returning Sons. It was then confirmed that all four teams would be in the match for the title in the same stipulation that crowned the first pair of champs – a ladder match! Who will be able to climb that stairway to Oblivion and get the gold? Will the WGTT prove that they are in fact the greatest? Or is it time for one of the many future options of AOW to take hold?


~AOW Heavyweight Championship~
*If Shawn Michaels loses, he can no longer compete*

The Worthy Champion Chris Jericho(c) w/Paul “The Great” Wright v. The Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels

“You did the same thing to another man. You say you’ve changed, but you’re full of shit.”

World Ablaze. The night the wrestling world stood still. It stood still to stand and marvel as AOW put on its first ever PPV spectacular, shattering all the odds. But the world stood still for different reasons in the end. Not only was Christian Cage sent into exile, but Chris Jericho pulled more than a few strings to retain his AOW Championship – most notably the strings of the man in zebra stripes for that match…Shawn Michaels. It was revealed later that Michaels had been compromised – in his contract, it stated that if Michaels didn’t win the AOW Championship in the year 2007, his run in the ring was done. He would be banned from in-ring competition. The Showstopper would be no more.

After finding some way to hold onto his title in a rematch with Van Dam, there was to be a Lucky 13 Battle to determine the new #1 contender. After an incredibly barbaric twenty minutes, Shawn Michaels emerged victorious with his one final chance at gold, even if he had to bend the rules and distract some referees to do so. Jericho applauded Michaels for his efforts, but reminding Michaels that he’s alienated everyone in AOW and that he was utterly and completely alone. To everyone’s surprise, AOW Cruiserweight Champion Bryan Danielson came to Michaels’ aid to make sure he kept his title shot, and even the ridiculously tensioned relationship between Samoa Joe and Michaels forced Joe to help Michaels somewhat.

But Jericho wasn’t done trying to drive his way into Michaels’ head. A worthy man doesn’t give up that easily. Instead, he wanted to prove to Michaels that was still very much alone by bringing him face-to-face with the man who had had the most detriment effect on his career – himself. A mirror before him, Shawn Michaels spoke to himself about everything he’d done; trying to speak to the man in the mirror. What resulted was Michaels admitting he was the same guy who committed wrestling atrocities years ago, but he was looking for a rebirth. While breaking a mirror isn’t exactly a way to get good luck, Michaels concluded by having no quams about breaking said mirror with Jericho’s body.

Now, with the legendary career of Shawn Michaels on the brink of an unceremonious end, will he be able to salvage up his Heart Break reserve and not just put on a show, but possibly muster up the biggest win of his career? Or will Chris Jericho prove that he is, more than anything else in the world, the true Master of War, the Worthy Man…?

Thank St. Nick, finish the figgy pudding, and put away your new bunny rabbit pajamas and tune in to A Very Merry War, this Wednesday, 9/8c only on FX!!

*If Shawn Michaels loses, he can no longer compete*

Chris Jericho(c) w/Paul “The Great” Wright v. Shawn Michaels

All of these matches are really hard to predict and this may be the hardest of all. Jericho’s reign on top has been excellent stuff, really enjoyable while Michaels struggle to get to the top has been captivating. Last chance saloon now for Shawn and I’m gonna say he fails to take it home. I don’t quite know how it’ll go down but I sense HBK being ousted, Christian returning to save the company soon enough before HBK is brought back with Heyman out of the equation. Should be a classic and whatever way you go you’ll make it work.

3.~AOW Dynasty Championship~
Muhammad Hassan(c) v. CM Punk

Been a really well worked feud between these two and I sense Punk takes the gold here. Hassan’s done extremely well as champion but I think you ended things really strong this past edition of Oblivion and a win for Punk would be the right call to close things out in this feud.

Rob Van Dam makes an announcement

Looking forward to this, just to see what route you go down, the way Van Dam speaks, his mannerisms etc. I’m not a hundred percent sure what you’ll go with but I’m excited by it. Certainly expect to see Finlay involved, possibly even Foley.

2.~Grudge Match~

Both men have looked like beasts since the thread began and it’s a tough one to call. I’m gonna go for Joe though, possibly even by DQ as Lashley just savages him.

1.*4-WAY LADDER MATCH*
~AOW Tag Team Championship~

World’s Greatest Tag Team(c) v. American Made v. Sons of the Dungeon v. Samoan Fight Club

Another really tough one to call. I think WGTT have had a strong run as champions and could quite easily see them retaining before heading into a straight up feud with one team. Could definitely see a title change however, but I’m gonna stick with the champions.


*Bonus Questions*

1) Select the match order- Done.
2) Select the winners of the matches Done.
3) Will there be any surprise appearances? If so, by whom? Finlay/Foley if he counts.
4) Will there be any blood? If so, which match? Hmmm, I’ll go with Joe/Lashley and the Tag Titles.
5) What will RVD’s announcement be pertaining to? Could be bloody anything. I’m gonna go with him set to walk away from AOW before Finlay or maybe Foley gives him 'something' to think about.


Should be a really exciting show and I’m very much looking forward to it even though I can’t call practically anything lol. Bring it home again my friend.

OBLIVION FEEDBACK

First off - Have I ever said how much I love the opening video? It's little things like that that I love, plus I love The Fight Song, so you get bonus points.

The opening promo was very captivating to say the least with Punk's reasoning standing out above all else. The way he's unravelled and enlightened the audience and the reader of how Hassan is the man who he says he hates is, quite frankly, amazing storytelling, and the way which Punk said it - the choice of words, mannerisms etc. - are all spot on. Hassan was great also, but the content was fairly typical from him, although I did enjoy the whole "The Man" schitck that he kept reffering to. I'm not too sure about the aftermatch of the promo, much like CP, in the fact that it's eerily similar to Punk/Jericho this year, and the minute detail that he poured the Jack down Punk's throat. That now ruins the fact that Punk has never drunk/taken drugs or alcohol. If it were more like how Jericho did it in real life and just poured it on him, it wouldn't be so bad. You get my point.

Also, @ John "THE COMMENTATING GAWD" Bradshaw Layfield

Good, solid match between Ki and Doane, not that I expected any less from these two. The follow up was great and it seems that you really do have some solidplans for Doane in the future. Hopefully LowJack aren't TOO hurt from this, but if anything it did great thigns from Doane, which I guess is the point.

:Lmao Carlito, one of my favourites. I've always felt he could have, and should have, main evented for a little while in the WWE. His heel character was hilarious and he was good in the ring as well. SImple squash match for Carly tonight, hopefully you find a storyline for him as soon as possible, the last thing I'd want is to see him either squandering and doing nothing for a while or just squashing people.

"Uh…let him in, but stand really close to me."

good stuff! I'm lovingt he fact that Finlay has a role to play; definitely one of the most underrated Wrestlers in history, IMO. Will be interesting to see where he goes, as well as this whole Heyman angle you've got going goes.

Very eery promo from Van Dam. To be honest, this is is most interesting character development/storyline I've read in a while, in any BTB, and in all honesty is probably the part I'm most looking forward to at A Very merry War. No knocking your other storylines, angles and matches, but this one could go so many ways. So brilliantly done, it's great! Kudos. Oh and by the way ... Joe vs. Lashley

I was a bit iffy with you ending the SFC's udnefeated streak, but you've made that up in leaps and bounds with this match. The way you've built up WGTT so far has been excellent so for the Samoans to go over them in such a competitive match realy puts them as a team over and to be honest, it sweetens the tag team division and the tag team title hunt a great deal. The aftermath was good also; basic promotion of the match next week, no complaints here!

Not much to say about the HBK/Danielson segment really - Bryan calling him HBK seems a bit awkward for me, but thats just me haha. I would love to see, if HBK does lose, for Shawn to almost mentor and guide AmDrag and slowly but surely lead him to the AOW Championship that he never won. That would be nice, but I'm sure you have your own plans.

Unreal ending to the show, tbh 619. I knew that there would be some carnage and chaos to end the show heading in to AVMW, but I wasn't expecting that, and with Samoa Joe the one standing tall, all very interesting. It's as if you've spent all of these weeks and episodes building up all of these dynamis and they've all collided tonight in the space of five minutes. Crazy, top notch stuff.

All in all, on a serious level, this was excellent. Other than the very little I mentioned, there wasn't a bad thing on the whole show. You developed the feuds and characters heading into AVMW, you showcased one of the best Tag Team Divisions I've ever seen in a BTB and you hyped the supershow perfectly for next week, which I presume was the #1 goal for this show. Keep it up, fella!

Now for some predictions!

FINAL CARD


4.~AOW Heavyweight Championship~
*If Shawn Michaels loses, he can no longer compete*

Chris Jericho(c) w/Paul “The Great” Wright v. Shawn Michaels

I know that at some point or another, Jericho has to lose the title; but I don't think Michaels is the man to do it. For me, Michaels isn't enough of a face to go over the megaheel Jericho, and HBK has had the best for the run in to the event. Although I can still see HBK around in AOW after this.

1.~AOW Dynasty Championship~
Muhammad Hassan(c) v. CM Punk

Hassan's character is just great, and I like the twist of him being filthy rich to add in a little more hateability. He has also been a great inaugural Dynasty Champion, but it is Punk's time now to get his hands on the gold; there just seems to be more for a face champion to do, as Punk will have his rematch with Hassan, and by then Carlito should also be ready to start chasing some gold. Wouldn't be surprised to see Ken Doane or even The Miz thrown in as challengers to Punk.

Rob Van Dam makes an announcement

2.~Grudge Match~
Samoa Joe v. Bobby Lashley

This I think is just a way to set up Joe as the Legion's main and biggest threat since it's inception, and these two will no doubt have a hell of a fight. We've already seen what both are capable of in this thread, but I see Joe having the edge and going on to be Jericho's next challenger, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him have to go through Wright first.

3.*4-WAY LADDER MATCH*
~AOW Tag Team Championship~

World’s Greatest Tag Team(c) v. American Made v. Sons of the Dungeon v. Samoan Fight Club

The hardest one to call, but I've gone against my gut instinct (WGTT) on the basis that I think Haas & Benjamin will turn heel and join the Worthy Legion as a result of not being able to win the titles back. This gives The Sons plenty of great matches with AM and SFC, and Low Jack can fill in as the "other" main face team in this utterly fantastic division.

*Bonus Questions*

1) Select the match order. Done
2) Select the winners of the matches. Done that too.
3) Will there be any surprise appearances? If so, by whom? Finlay, Mick Foley & maybe Ken Doane
4) Will there be any blood? If so, which match? Yes, in the Ladder Match as well as Joe/Lashley
5) What will RVD’s announcement be pertaining to? He wants Finlay or Foley in a match to get his right to challenge for titles again.


Cannot wait!
