So I had this thought as to the Royal Rumble winner and the buildup to Wrestlemania, since it appears to be leading to a few brand vs. brand matches ...

Paul Heyman has stated that Benoit will never get a shot at the WWE title again ... So what if Benoit wins the Rumble and Heyman says that it's written in some sort of binding contract or something that Benoit cannot receive a shot ... this brings Linda McMahon out the say that while she cannot override the existing contract she can offer Benoit a shot at the title ... the World Heavyweight title against Triple H ...

The whole brand vs. brand could be interesting if superstars start showing up on the rival show ...

And if Triple H puts on a match with Benoit like he did with his most recent one with HBK, then it might be something worth seeing.

Wow...and Hunter could start killing the pushes of guys on both shows. Seriously, I'd be all for that, if I thought for one second that Benoit would actually be put over HHH after so many aborted pushes.

As far as the crossover matches, though, I do think they should work it so that the IC and US titles switch shows. Raw's titles would then all be identified geographically (World, US, World Tag, World Womens - I know they don'd do that last one right now, but it's a simple switch) and the Smackdown titles would all carry the WWE preface...create a bit of uniformity within the shows.

But here is my only problem with it, why would Benoit have some thing in his contract that says he cannot have a title shot?

I'm not really too high on that idea. What I really want to see is Benoit finish his feud with Brock Lesnar and get a title shot that way. Benoit's presence is much more appropriate and needed on Smackdown! and Benoit/Lesnar is still a fresh match, especially when I was kind of underwhelmed by the feud Benoit and HHH had a few years back. He was HHH's whipping boy then and if it happened again he'd be his whipping boy now.

I remember a match at a PPV between Benoit/HHH that was truly badass. Benoit even busted out the Dragon Suplex!

With that said, though, I'd be much more excited about Benoit/Lesnar. Their match on Smackdown a few weeks ago was seven different kinds of sweet. I want more!

That's what they seem to be saying in the sheetz, although not necessarily mentioning Benoit. But "Smackdown winner challenges Raw champ". Angle and Cena are probably viable candidates, too.

As much as I'd like to see Benoit win it, does anyone feasibly see that happening? They've hinted about it for the last few weeks, but man, how many times have we been teased with this?

I feel like it'll get down to someone like Benoit and Bautista or Orton and then a sit-out powerbomb/RKO later... it's like, "Just kidding, smarks! Enjoy your all-Evolution WrestleMania! Fuck off, love Vince."

I seriously doubt Vince cares about smarks enough to think about them for even a nanosecond. Let alone fake a Benoit push just to piss them off.
Although if he did, I'd really like it.

What about Goldberg being a surprise entrant for Smackdown, delivers 29 spears and faces Lesnar at WMXX?

According to the newsletters you may be on to something, Mr. Mayhem, though now everyone's going to be mad at m...Seadawg about spoiling the Rumble surprise.

Good point, I really should have just written "marks." Because it seems like Benoit's getting decent enough reactions to elevate him past just being a smark favorite. Like when a movie that critics love catches on with the mainstream - such as Mystic River. Or Cabin Boy.

A funny idea would be if all 30 guys got in the ring for the Rumble and Tajiri runs in and sprays mist in all 30 guys' eyes and we have the first ever Blind Royal Rumble.

But really I would like to see Y2J win the Rumble.

No way. Surely a slightly twisted, not entirely accurate version of it will end up on 411 or wherever.
