We'll probably see something at E3, then.

BTW, WWE Smackdown scored another low rating this week with a 1.7.

A couple of things about last nights RAW.

The Divas match wasn't that bad. :o

When are they actually going to unify the Tag Titles properly and give the champions one belt?

Kofi Kingston is a personality vacuum.

Flair is becoming increasingly more annoying each week.

Would someone like to explain to me how a fatal four way is 'extreme!'

It's as extreme as it gets.

The Big Show's camel clutch hold is so bad it's been renamed 'Cobra Clutch Backbreaker' by the commentators. :lol:

I dunno, but there's something about this photo that just makes the whole scenario seem utterly ridiculous. I think it's the SHOCKING revelation that there's a cameraman standing there, & he's that close.

It's like some crazy post-wedding brawl where the father-in-law has taken exception to something or other...

I didn't think that car park brawl was that bad. :shifty:

At least the end put Flair out of it well and truly with no comeback looking likely.

I agree fully on the divas match, the crowd also seemed into it, with some 'kelly kelly' chants.

I can only assume that maybe they are intending to split the belts back up again and that's why they are still carrying 2x belts.

Did anyone notice that Kofi kept starting each sentence in his proper accent before his fake Jamaican accent would kick in? Why have they taken the belt off MVP? and in such a lack lusture way. Have they already given up on his push? or will he go for Orton straight after Extreme Rules?

Overall though i didn't mind RAW, thought it was quite good really. Certain parts felt like the old days. Parking lot brawl, Cage match, Blood!

Torrie Wilson is currently taking part in the American version of I'm a Celebrity...Get me Out of Here!

The slop Santino threw everywhere last night was rather amusing. I think it caught a considerable amount of people in the front row.

I thought that happened too. The fact that it caught the camera man too also added to it.

Also i would to see Kofi's Jamaican accent dropped and allow him to cut promo's in his actual accent, it was quite evident from the backstage skit with MVP that he can talk, and i think he will find it a lot more comfortable cutting promo's in his actual voice.

Summerslam is when we'll see the first of Smackdown vs Raw 2010. Announced at e3 but bugger all else apart from some naff line about "freedom never seen before".

Extreme Rules is this Sunday so it's time for the GRAPL predictions. But first a recap of the rules. I suggest some of you read this as every question I was asked during the bonus round was already addressed in here. Never be afraid to ask a question but don't be a lazy sod either.

GRAPL is simple to play. The Friday before every WWE PPV this year I'll post up a prediction sheet. You enter your predictions and post the sheet. For every one you get right you earn points and points are tallied up on the leaderboard. If you are top of the leaderboard after Wrestlemania next year then you win!

Same as last year you can change your predictions as many times as you like up till the 11pm Sunday deadline. Anyone found to be editing posts after that will be disqualified from that PPV. Any changes to the PPV after I've posted the prediction form will be ignored and the predictions for that match will be null and void. You can enter as little PPV's as you like.

Here is the leaderboard as it stands (in pauper text :()

It's not racist at all. 50% of the competitors are white so it's a nice 50/50 question to give some people more chance of getting a point. Which is handy when there are four possible winners.

You're HM aren't you?

If anyone thinks that a match will be a draw put draw. It's been in the rules from day one. N/A counts as a non answer.
