How soon time comes around eh peeps! Vengeance saw me flat broke as a student still up in Nottingham, the GAB sees me flat broke, with a dissertation still to do, but i'm back home and working! What? The Wrestling? Oh, never mind...

Poor Smackdown. No Benoit, Burchill, Henry, JBL, Batista and Kennedy until recently. They're having to 'push' a champ with a crocked knee and a green newcomer in Lashley - essentially relying on Booker T and Finlay to carry things. And they've done ok, up to a point. But showcasing the main event in 3 different forms (spoiler alert - friday is horrendous booking two days before a PPV) shows how badly SD needs people on its side. So what do the E do? They keep Taker off the booking schedule and move Randy Orton over to RAW. I'm no fan of young Randall, but as a main-event heel he should have been kept on SD - they needed him badly. Why they didn't put anyone of Test, Big Show, Fertig, Shannon Moore or CM Punk on SD is beyond me - none of them are really needed on ECW. I feel really sorry for Henry - getting such a bad injury in the middle of a monster push that his physique deserves. Still, c'est la vie. At least we've got Khali:rolleyes:

Having said that, Booker, finally getting a big push - and his PPV match with Rey should be awesome, as well as the Tag match. But we'll see. At the moment only 5 matches are announced - expect that figure to go up once I find out more spoilers, and i'll put them up as soon as I can.

You know the rules by now - pick your winner from the matches, and your tiebreakers. You've got til 1am Sunday morning to choose your results - when matches are added just edit your choices. I'm gonna spoil away with this thread, so apologies in advance.

Your Matches

1)Rey Mysterio (c) v King Booker - World Heavyweight Championship
2)Batista v Ken Kennedy - Batista's open challenge
3)Great Khali v Undertaker - Punjab Prison match
4)Finlay v William Regal - US Championship
5)The Pitbulls v London/Kendrick - WWE Tag Team Championship
6)Ashley v Kristal v Jillian v Michelle McCool - 4-way Bra and Panties match

Your tiebreakers

1) How many matches will have outside interference?
2) From bell to bell, how long will the Batista match last?
3) Pick a weapon, other than steel chair or ring steps, that will be used at any point in the evening.
4) Pick a SD superstar not announced in a match who will appear at any point in the evenings proceedings. Does not include people who accompany ie Daivari.
5) Which match will go on second?

We're at the halfway stage of proceedings, so anything can happen with a change in positions. Eddie missed out last time, allowing Johnson to take a two point lead ahead of myself and CPFC_619. But get picking guys, and the best of luck to you all.

I've added the 6th match and removed Lashley. SD really is cursed:(

Quite the rant at the top! Generally fair, but you can't seriously think Punk would be better off being repackaged as a hell's angel or a heroin junkie over on Smackdown? And Big Show would have just continued being a boring slug over in the land of lazy booking, the man always needs motivation. The vampire dude and Jeff Hardy's even-faggier buddy probably would fit in better with the leprechaun, the tranny and 8-foot retard though :)

apparently Pscosis won a Number 1 Contenders Match for the Cruiserweight Title against Super Crazy on Smackdown as well. So it would be Psicosis vs. Gregory Helms

No idea if that's true, but it seems bizarre if it is, considering Psicosis is a heel.

No, but if they were gonna move CM Punk up they could've done it on SD, what with the B-show its treated as. Show i can see where your coming from, but he has main-event credibility, and that's something that SD severely lacks.

Every new guy has to have a cartoon gimmick on RAW & Smackdown. ECW may not be much different in the wider picture but it is the only show on which he could have kept the personality that made him so popular in the first place. Would never, ever, have been pushed as a top guy on the family-friendly SmackDown as he's too edgy or on RAW as it's the a-show.

Yep! Anyone know anything more specific about what this liver stuff means, obviously the two of them must have failed the same test, there must be a strong suspicion of substance/supplement abuse for them to both be suspended immediately?

Sussex Eagle
22-07-2006, 01:18 PM
Don't envy you doing the results for this one notts!

1) King Booker
2) Batista
3) Big Show - presumably there'll be no goofy cage involved?
4) Finlay - surely time for them to push their best heel to the top? Will be a a far better match without Bobby, but they'll have to do something special to keep the crowd involved.
5) London & Kendrick, maybe not clean but they'll win & retain
6) Ashley, since none of the others are at all over. Presumably, hopefully, she does the 'babyface takes her own duds off' spot afterwards.

1) Two
2) Mr. Kennedy's in for a squashing......SQUASHIIIIIIIIIING - 9 minutes 10 seconds
3) I think you may see some barbed wire & thumbtacks tomorrow, but my actual pick has to be Shilleileigh
4) Super Crazy
5) Bra & Panties

according to the wwe doctor, Lashley had elevated liver enzymes. I did a quick google and that could be caused by multiple things.

Many possible reasons for sure although given the nature of the business it's surely far more likely to be caused by steroid use. However that does not necessarily mean it is current usage that caused the problem.

Had he? Since a match hadn't come up on the Website, like an open challenge or something, I figured it was valid.

Well i don't mind not having the point for it anyways if people don't like the call, but i figure some interpretations are gonna be controversial...
