Smackdown presents yet another PPV this Sunday. Looks decent:

WORLD CHAMPION DAVE BATISTA vs. EDDIE GUERRERO:
Vaguely resembles the February 2004 clash between Guerrero & then-WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, at least in ring styles. Then again, Lesnar was better all-around than Batista. That said, Guerrero COULD win. Batista, while good, isn't setting the world on fire as far as ratings & buyrates are concerned. He has to lose the title sometime, right? Right? But now? And to Eddie? I'm of the mind that both Cena & Batista will lose their belts before the year's out, and both on PPV. I'd say Batista goes down first.
PICK: Eddie Guerrero by screwjob pinfall.

CASKET MATCH: THE UNDERTAKER vs. RANDY ORTON/BOB ORTON JR:
In the second bi-generational handicap epic of our time (the first being Shane & Vince vs. Stone Cold from King of the Ring in '99)...we get this. I don't get why. The Orton/Taker series was fine with a win apiece in a pair of pretty fine matches. Why stretch it?
PICK: The Undertaker. There's no point in having him job two PPVs in a row to Orton. I say the elder Orton ends up taking the brunt of the loss, leaving the youngster to save face.

JOHN BRADSHAW LAYFIELD vs. REY MYSTERIO:
Clash of titans or clash of styles? Big fat brawler vs. superlucha face. The winners? Probably not the fans...
PICK: Rey Mysterio. No reason to spend so long building up Rey just to job him to JBL.

U.S. TITLE: CHRIS BENOIT [c] vs. CHRISTIAN vs. ORLANDO JORDAN vs. BOOKER T:
Ah, Benoit...he rocks. This should be a pretty good match considering (3 of the 4) folks involved. Only question is...title change or not?
PICK: Chris Benoit. They're really doing a lot of nothing with the US Title right now, so it makes sense to keep it on Benoit and let him do his usual "fighting champion" schtick until he loses it to somebody via a feud, not a throwaway PPV title defense.

C.W. TITLE: NUNZIO vs. JUVENTUD GUERRERA:
Apparently announced on Velocity, it's a throwaway cruiserweight match!
PICK: Juventud. Why not?

6-PERSON: MERCURY/NITRO/MELINA vs. ANIMAL/HEIDENREICH/CHRISTY:
In lieu of an actual title defense...
PICK: The Faces.

PPV DEBUT: BOBBY LASHLEY vs. SIMON DEAN:
Duh.
PICK: Bobby Lashley.

PPV DEBUT: MR. KEN KENNEDY...KENNEDY vs. HARDCORE HOLLY:
Duh, again.
PICK: Mr. Ken Kennedy...Kennedy.

WILL "RAW" INVADE?
Duh, thirdly. Rumour has it that they're pushing a RAW vs. Smackdown feud for Survivor Series...so they'd be smart to promote it on both brands' PPVs in the meantime.

As I like to ask with most WWE PPV's . . . is "looks decent" worth $35 dollars?

Eddie Guerrero vs. Batista - Obviously going to end in a DQ non-finish that WWE is so fond of in 2004 and 2005 for big world title PPV main events. I'd like to see Eddie win the world title, but I have a feeling this feud is going to go a while longer. So I don't think he wins it here. Batista wins.

US Title Fatal 4 Way - So is this elimination rules or first pinfall/submission wins? And someone PLEASE tell me what the hell Orlando Jordan is doing in another US title match...on PPV no less? Pathetic. Title change or not, huh? Well, it is Booker T's hometown. And they seem to be going with the storyline of Sharmell cheating to help Booker T win his matches...so perhaps something similar here? I just wish now that Benoit is US champion he could feud with Christian or a dream match with Rey Mysterio. As usual, WWE is too clueless to do what they so obviously should. Toss-up between Booker T and Benoit I think. I'll go with Booker T. I suppose, though I hope Benoit wins.

LOD and Christy vs. MNM - So...are the tag titles on the line in this match? I guess MNM wins. I just wish this lame ass boring feud would end already. Smackdown's tag team division still blows.

JBL vs. Rey Mysterio - Swap JBL and Benoit, make this the US title match and you would've had a potential MOTYC and a much superior PPV card overall, but the UN-creative team in its inherent wisdom gives us this. Oh well. Didn't Rey beat JBL on Smackdown recently? JBL gets the win back here.

Casket Match - Oh God, not another one. I hate casket matches. The one between Undertaker and Heidenreich earlier this year was downright offensive. Don't expect much more from this one. I say the Ortons win to hopefully end this awful feud for good.

Ken Kennedy vs. Hardcore Holly - Kennedy wins in what will be a Velocity/Heat match at best.

Bobby Lashley vs. Simon Dean - Lashley in yet another match that should be on Velocity/Heat.

Nunzio vs. Juventud - Wow, a CW title match on a WWE PPV...something that they even failed to mention on Smackdown tonight. Pretty sad state for this division if you ask me. They should just rename it the INTERNET wrestling title, since that's the only place we see it. If this match gets over 7 minutes, color me surprised. Juvi winning could possibly give this division a good shake-up and a fresh face with the title, but I'm just going to go with logic and say Nunzio wins.

When's the last time a Smackdown brand only PPV had 8 matches on it? Can't remember.

Aw heck, I don't think it looks decent. At least if you were going to buy the Great American Bash, it'd be on the chance that Mysterio and Guerrero were going to have a great match. Here the only thing of some potential besides the seven minutes of grounded cruiserweights is how good a match Eddie can get out of Batista ... and that's offset by its being the worst built pay-per-view main event in WWE history. The fourway fourmat isn't conducive to being a good match unless they do eliminations and Benoit does a good final flurry with Booker or Christian. Grim stuff here, but I'm excited for Survivor Series if they pick cool teams for the Smackdown vs. Raw match.

The "second bi-generational handicap epic" is a great fact though. I thought Chavo and Classic must've teamed up against someone, but all I remember is them in a threeway where Sr. won the belt.
