Even if all the wrestling fans in the world were talking about it, it doesn't mean the whole world is. Serious overdramatization.

Now that HAS to happen, I doubt there's any wrestling fan who wouldn't want to see that at Wrestlemania.

I may have missed it but has anyone posted predictions for tonight?

Edge vs. Undertaker (Hell in a Cell Match) - Not sure
WWE Champion Triple H vs. The Great Khali - HHH
World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk vs. JBL - CM Punk
ECW Champion Mark Henry vs. Matt Hardy - Mark Henry
John Cena vs. Batista - Batista
Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Jeff Hardy - Not sure (Hope it's MVP)
Winners Take All Tag Team Match - Kofi & Mickie (hope it's Santino and Beth)
Shawn Michaels announcement (I think he will announce that he is gay for HHH and he wants to get back together)

I've not posted who i think will win because for most of the matches i really don't know what will happen. A first for a long time. I strongly believe that Batista will beat Cena unless some kind of Cena turn happens because Cena just seems to be putting people over all the time now. HHH will obviously win too and CM Punk. I also think Mark Henry as well. Ok so maybe i was wrong, i do have opinions on tonights matches. I would also be shocked to see Kofi lose his title but i would like to see Santino and Beth with the belts. Plus the HIAC match. Surely Taker will win but if he does where will they take the whole crazy Edge angle?

Ok so i'm gonna go ahead and add who i think will win now anyway.

3 disc set out November in the US, no listing yet. Looking forward to it, although they really are trying to bankrupt me with all these great DVD releases.

I wonder if that would mean a match against Taker. This would mean he would have to lose to Taker though as Taker should never lose his WM streak, ever!!

Am I the only one who wants to break things whenever the words WWE Universe are uttered by anybody on screen. It's bad enough when the commentators do it, but Ranjin Singh? Especially claiming that "THE GREAT KHALI says..." and wanted to use that phrase!

What a shitty buzz word.

Indeed. I only remembered the other day that news story that went round a few months ago about them coming up with a new buzz word to describe the 3 brands. It's quite rubbish.

One thing that isn't are Runjin's awesome sideburns.

Quick question about Silvervision - do they charge your card right away for pre-orders?

Only when they send the items out, I believe.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

TNA has implemented a policy to no longer paper pay-per-view events feeling it's not good long-term business to give tickets away for free. TNA would often paper their pay-per-view events the week before the show due to lackluster ticket sales to make the venue appear full to the television audience. Last Sunday's Hard Justice pay-per-view drew 3,500 fans to the 8,500 seat Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, New Jersey, another figure that has to be considered disappointing. By not giving away free tickets for Hard Justice, TNA combated the appearance of empty seats by moving nearly all of the fans to one half of the arena to give the illusion to the television audience that they drew a packed arena. One side of the arena had nearly all of fans whereas the hard camera side was practically deserted sans a few fans in the ringside seats.

I noticed this watching it. No chance of moving out of the iMPACT zone any time soon, then.

They could do with improving the lighting rig on their PPV's too.

Summerslam Predictions:

Edge v Undertaker - Undertaker, I'd love to see them go to the top of the cell, but it seems unlikely, maybe a Foley interference as a complete shock
HHH v Khali - HHH
Cena v Batista - Batista
JBL v CM Punk - CM Punk, but I've a bad feeling they could give it to JBL
Mark Henry v Matt Hardy - Mark Henry
MVP v Jeff Hardy - MVP, probably will be fairly short if Jeffs injured
Kofi and Mickie v Beth and Santino - Beth and Santino, probably with Beth winning the IC title and Santino the womens knowing the WWE Bookers
Shawn Michaels announcement - That hes not gonna retire and wants to beat Jericho within an inch of his life

I was going to post here after watching Smackdown about how Edge is arguably the best performer in the business right now. And then I realised that it would be a pointless post, seeing as theres no argument against it. The guy is phenomenal, and has been for the best part of three straight years.

I agree. His performance when he lost the belt to punk was brilliant. The whole promo was five star. He needs freshening up a bit though. Jericho could easily sneak up on him once he starts getting a bit more air time.

Definitely.

He's been brilliant ever since he won the title the first time in 2006, and he seems to get better each and every week. Definitely my favourite wrestler at the moment.
