They go at about 1 mile an hour and most of them don't even connect. Awful. :lol:

Is anyone going to notice? The talent are practically on every show anyway, especially for ECW.

We can all pray for one thing though. Jim Ross back to Raw!

LOL seperate brands.

If the upcoming draft stops Miz and Morrison appearing on pretty much EVERY SINGLE WWE SHOW I will be unamused.

Though blates Morrison needs to get drafted to Raw and pushed to the moon as a singles guy again.

Just been reading the last couple of pages.... just what the strawberry float is going on? :lol:

I cannot, just cannot, believe what I read about Christian. Atleast let him debut on a PPV, at the very least Raw. I heard this Swagger guy is pretty good so I have no problem with the feud but to piss on Christian like that at a time when wrestling needs big moments quite frankly is strawberry floating stupid. I have thought, as i'm sure you guys have, for a long time now that Vince is losing his minus touch with the business. He's just alienating more and more fans

And wha's this about Flair? Such a great moment last year, all for strawberry float all. It hasn't been a year and he's back? Screw that

And Petey has gone? :x One of the top talents, sorely going to be missed on the x division roster

Really though - the commentary was dire for Christian. Unforgiveable.

It's . . . christian :|

So they've dreadfully undersold his hugely anticipated return - how do you follow it up?

This moment is just become instantly classic! :o

You strawberry floating contradict your partner with an stupid statement, that's how.

If he wasn't tupping Swagger, you'd feel the same.

The surely could have rehearsed a decent few lines.

Watching the Starrcade DVD, one thing is painfully evident. Tony Schiavone was quite clearly into everything that was happening, no matter how ridiculous. Compare Schiavone to the likes of Michael Cole kicking off Raw. "Welcome to Raw" in the most monotone, disinterested manner possible. For example, this past Monday night. The show has just gone on the air, Ric Flair is walking down the ramp & he's practically comatose.

It could work ridiculously badly if Swagger ends up on the wrong end of things. Saying that they made out like Christian needed a hand beating Swagger on Tuesday so who knows where this is really heading.

'See you in the ring Colons' :lol:

Seriously why is John Morrison being wasted on ECW with The Miz again?

He's main contender material through and through; awesome in the ring and genuinely funny in all his promos.

I agree that Morrison should be pushed this year into main event material, but him and the Miz are great together and although the Miz isn't perfect he's still developed into a very good talent with excellent mic skills, which is something I thought I'd never have said 3 years ago.

It's time for.........

GRAPL Round 2: No Way Out
No Way Out is this Sunday and for some of you it's your chance to catch up before the final round but for the lucky few it's your chance to create an unstoppable lead. It could still go either way so it's worth entering even if you didn't do very well at the rumble. After the rumble it's safe to say that it's not as easy to predict as you think. Will A J Styles stumble and open the door for someone else to claim the top spot? Will Corazon do amazing but blow it for no sensible reason, again? Will E-man fight his way off bottom in an incredible comeback? We shall have the answers this Sunday.

GRAPL Leaderboard after Round 1

WWE Champion: A J Styles - 11
Zellery - 10
Trugamez - 10
Dark Dragon 64 - 10
Mockmaster - 9
Laggyjim - 9
Brick Tamlin - 9
Return_of_the_STAR - 9
Ironmaiden - 9
Teh Bork - 9
PsychoPriest - 8
Poncho - 8
Sw26 - 8
Adam Pollard - 8
Drumstick - 7
PsychicSykes - 7
Corazon - 7
Lonestar - 6
Cropolite - 5
ECW Champion E-man - 4

Here is the prediction form. WWE have made my job hard by only announcing 5 matches. They'll add more but it would be too hard to get everyone to add them so forget any that are added.

ECW Champion Jack Swagger vs. Finlay
Winner:
Will Christian get physically involved? (yes/no)
Prediction:
JBL vs. Shawn Michaels
Winner:
Randy Orton vs. Shane McMahon
Winner:
Will Vince McMahon interfere during the match? (yes/no)
Prediction:
Elimination Chamber for the World Championship: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kane vs. Mike Knox vs. Kofi Kingston
Winner:
Last person to be eliminated?
Prediction:
Elimination Chamber for the WWE Championship: Edge vs. The Undertaker vs. Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Big Show vs. Vladimir Kozlov.
Winner:
First person to be eliminated?
Prediction:
Jeff Hardy to last longer than The Undertaker? (yes/no)
Prediction:
Which elimination chamber will last longer bell to bell? (WWE/World)
Prediction:
Will Matt Hardy physically attack Jeff Hardy at anytime during the show? (yes/no)
Prediction:

Some odd ones there I know but fitting 12 points into this piss poor card was hard.
