Do you guys expect Shawn Michaels to win at the next pay-per-view the World's champion against Chris Benoit?  They will be fighting in Chris's home town.  Can anybody say Montreal?

I'm expecting a screwjob deal, much like Hart\Michaels, truthfully.  Its kinda predictable, so perhaps it won't happen... But... :-\

I'm predicting Benoit retaining. I really don't want to see HBK as champ again.

Seeing as we don't get Raw until Friday (and Smackdown on Saturday) I read the report on PWTorch.  Looks like a decent enough show.

I got my remaining Wrestlemanias through in the post today (which brings my collection of WM's back up to twenty, that's with WMXX taped off Sky Sports), was able to watch XIX for the first time, which was a pretty good PPV.

XIX is a personal favorite for me.

Yeah Shelton winning was cool. Bradshaw looks to be getting a pretty big push as well, which I also like very much.

What has happened to some of the WWE Divas?  Teri, Jacqueline, Ivory, have they been let go?

Also, what has happened to Maven, Christopher Nowinski, Tommy Dreamer?

All those divas are still there, just not in the featured storyline at the moment. Maven will be back soon, Nowinski injured and last I heard there is a chance he may have to retire, Dreamer is still jobbing.  roll eyes That poor guy deserves a push.

Am I the only person that thinks this whole brand extension is not necessary? I was watching last week's Raw when the SD guys were fighting the Raw guys and I was thinking "this is ridiculus, they're all one company".

I think it is completely neccessary. There are just too many superstars to work on one brand.

If they were all together on one brand, they would just end up keeping some superstars on one show in order to cover feuds well and also the travel schedule would be hell. Seeing as Smackdown and Raw travel in different cities, wrestlers would be back and forth and everywhere at once, it would be hectic.

Also, with two different brands traveling to different cities and countries, this allows them to get more house shows in.

What injury did Nowinski get?  Didn't he get a head injury?  He had the same type of atitude as Orton and Bradshaw combined, which made him funny.

Terri has been fired, as well as Sean O'Haire today.

Sean O'Haire has been absent since Piper was fired.  Why was he and Teri fired, today?  Damn the WWE is letting go a whole bunch of guys; Faarooq, Goldberg, Goldust, Brock Lesnar.  Why is that, why deprive fans their favorite superstars?

That's simple:

Sean O'Haire - They weren't really going to use him anyway, so it's better to let him be free with the chance of a return someday.

Goldberg - Contract expired, had a hard time reaching a new agreement.

Goldust - Getting old, should have just given him the Dustin Rhodes gimmick, but oh well, have to make room for new guys.

Brock Lesner - quit to join NFL.

Terri - who acctually cares? She wasn't really doing anything anymore anyway.

I remember marking out for O'Haire's promos back when he was reintroduced into the WWF.  His "I'm not telling you anything you don't already know" bits were probably the last interviews that I looked forward to seeing.  I think with his look, mic skills, and potential, he could have been huge.  Too bad Vince hates anyone who ever made money for WCW.

That's right. He had a unique style. Sean is acctually very skilled in martial arts and has a great "Sean-ton bomb" that they wouldn't let him do.

Regardless of how good he was in the ring, WWE saying they are going to release O'Haire Wasn't "telling me anything I didn't already know."

No, it was the Swan-ton bomb that Jeff Hardy used to use. I guess they said he couldn't use it because Jeff was around, when Jeff left I guess he had just grown acustomed to not using it.

Is that true? Bummer; I mean, I can still remember when he was being seriously pushed in WCW - the entire stadium chanting "Goldberg!" at the same time. I'd never heard anything like it. That's a real pity. Still, Vinnie'll soon find out what a mistake he's made.

He was a jerk backstage and refused to up his in-ring work. Just look at his match with Brock Lesner.

I don't think his heart is in the business. Same with Lesner. It's weird, Goldberg has spent so much time in Japan but still isn't very good in the ring.

First off I think Triple H will win at Backlash, he's had the title 9/10 times last year.  Maybe this year will be different, although it's doubtful.

Second, where is the Undertaker?  Last I saw he tombstoned Heyman, did they just bring him back for Wrestlemania XX?

I think the Goldberg-Lesnar match was awesome, I was looking foreward to that match for awhile, and it stinks that they both left.  I wanted to see  rematch.

Fourth-  I think the Big Show should be champ again, that John Cena punk robbed him of  his U.S. title at Wrestlemania, but Show will get a WWE title shot WHEN he wins that Angle Great American Award.

Lastly, I don't think Farooq was let go for good, I think there will be  Farooq-Bradshaw fued in the future which I would love to see.

I think you may be right, too bad I haven't liked Triple H since before Wrestlemaina X7, and Benoit is an awesome champ.

As far as I know, he's still a part of WWE. It's just that his body is on the verge of falling apart from years of injuries and age, so WWE uses him sparingly on regular shows, and have him doing most of his wrestling on Pay Per View so Vince can get his moneys worth out of old 'Taker.

Brock was, quite frankly shoved down our throats, and Goldberg is only good in small doses. I'm glad they're both gone, although I would have liked to see Austin vs. Goldberg simply for the WWF vs. WCW aura it has. Funny, most consider this the worst match of WM XX.

Cena is a more popular wrestler with both casual fans (marks), and dorky internet fans (smarks). Back at the beginning of his WCW run as The Giant, show was a decent wrestler.  Around the time he joined the nWo, and  put on like 150 lbs. his in ring ability went down and he hasn't really been main event material since.

Also you do realize that Show has had the WCW World Title/WWE Title and his moment in the sun several times already don't you? Cena is a fresh face, and a better wrestler to boot. He deserves the US title more than Show, and I would much rather see Cena as the WWE Champ than Big Show.

Lastly, I don't think Farooq was let go for good, I think there will be  Farooq-Bradshaw fued in the future which I would love to see.

No wrestlers are ever "let go for good". If WWE sees a sutible storyline for him, or think he has potential to draw big ratings, they'll bring him back. While I'll be the first to admit that the WWE has had some very bad storylines over the last year, I doubt that a Farooq/Bradshaw fued will help matters much.

Now I have a question for you Lrrr_2004. You do realize that the winners of wrestling matches are predetermined right? Because it doesn't seem like you do after reading your post.

*Edit* On a side note, I love your Fire Pro Wrestling Z sig Coop.  wink

I know how you feel, when I found out about the reason for the name change I wanted to beat up some Pandas, but I learned to accept it, after all it's not the name that matters, it's...aw who am i kidding, why should those wildlife morons get the name WWF?  The wrestling is more popular, do you think anyone would care if the wildlife fund changed it's name?

Oh, and sorry to change the subject but does anyone know why my threads keep getting cancelled?  Any info would be much appriciated.

I think that the ammount of X-matches are fine at the moment. In fact, maybe too many.

I know that I am in the minority here, but to me wrestling has become too much dazzle. Too many crazy bumps and flips and leaps and little to no wrestling at all.

I don't mind the crazy stuff, but I believe that because of it, wrestling fans expect to be shocked every single match. This is why people are put off by guys like Bradshaw and Big show, because they don't believe that anything else is acceptable! The reason I watch wrestling is because I want to see guys with different styles facing off.

It just upsets me that in the future, this could be all there is. A lot of people say they are happy to see the "Big man" style go, but I'm not.  frown

I heard something about this awhile ago, either he got fired for using drugs, or from injuring someone from being too stiff. It could have been a combination of both.

Sweet Jesus, Shelton Benjerman just beat Triple H again! Granted it was by count out and he got beat down after, but beating Triple H two weeks in a row is no small feat, methinks he has a huge push coming.

However I did notice from the interview at the start of Raw that he needs to work on his mic work.
