It's time for The 2nd Annual RAW presentation of Trainwreck...er...Taboo Tuesday:

One Fall for the WWE Heavyweight Championship:
John Cena [Champion] vs. Kurt Angle [#1 Contender] vs. Fans' Choice of Shawn Michaels, Kane or The Big Show
STIPS: Fans choose the third man in the match.
STIPS PICK: Shawn Michaels. Best possible option.
RESULT: Your winner and NEW WWE Champion, Kurt Angle. Heeish chicanery involved, possibly also some combination of Bischoff or HHH interfering.

One Fall for the World Tag Team Championship:
Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch [Champions] vs. Wacky Mismatched Team
STIPS: Fans choose the opponents, sort of, since the guys who don't get voted into the WWE Title bout compete for the loser belts.
STIPS PICK: Kane & the Big Show, by virtue of the fans voting HBK into the main event.
RESULT: Given Kane's injury, I'd say Cade & Murdoch get the deuce. Maybe Kane no-shows and Show goes it alone, leading to an eventual Kane/Show feud if they can remember.

Fans' Choice Grudge Match:
Ric Flair vs. Triple H
STIPS: Fans choose the match type. It's either a Steel Cage Match, a Submission Match or a simple 1-on-1 affair.
STIPS PICK: Cage.
RESULT: HHH. Lots of blood.

RAW vs. Smackdown Grudge Match:
Edge & Chris Masters [RAW] vs. Fans' Choice [Smackdown]
STIPS: Fans vote for the two guys they want to represent Smackdown. It's the top two vote-getters of Christian, Matt Hardy, Rey Mysterio, JBL and Hardcore Holly.
STIPS PICK: Mysterio y Hardy.
RESULT: Mysterio y Hardy. They wouldn't job out Rey in his hometown, and they need something to add momentum to the rumored Survivor Series bout.

Fans' Choice Grudge Match:
Dave Batista vs. Jonathan Coachman [with Goldust & Vader]
STIPS: Fans choose the match type. It's either a STREETFIGHT, a debate or an arm-wrestling contest.
STIPS PICK: StreetFight.
RESULT: Batista wins

Grudge Match:
Mick Foley [dressed as either Mankind, Cactus Jack or Dude Love depending on how the fans vote] vs. Carlito
STIPS: Fans choose which face of Foley wrestles.
STIPS PICK: Doesn't matter, but I'm guessing Cactus Jack.
RESULT: Foley wins somehow.

2nd Annual Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royale for WWE Women's Championship:
Trish Stratus [Champion] vs. Mickey James vs. Victoria vs. Ashley vs. Candice Michelle vs. vs. Maria
STIPS: Fans choose what the dames wrestle in, out of a choice of cheerleader outfits, leather & lace or lingerie.
STIPS PICK: Cheerleader.
RESULT: Winner and NEW Women's Champion, Mickey James.

Tag Team Match:
Eugene & a Legend of the Fans' Choosing vs. Rob Conway & Tyson Tomko
STIPS: Fans choose Eugene's partner out of a choice of Jimmy Snuka, Hacksaw Jim Duggan or Kamala.
STIPS PICK: Hacksaw.
RESULT: Conway wins, with the legend taking the fall.

WWE Championship
I voted for: Kane.
The fans will pick: Shawn Michaels.
Result: Kurt Angle wins the title, and defends it singly against Cena at Survivor Series.

World Tag Championship
Result: Cade and Murdoch get the win, which gives them some much needed validation.

Intercontinental Championship
I voted for: Submission match. I mean, wouldn't Flair have the advantage in that?
The fans will pick: Steel Cage match, because they're sheep.
Result: Triple H gets the win when his newest cronies comes to ringside to give him his sledgehammer, and they reform Evolution. On Monday night, he tries to give the IC title to one of them, but instead Bischoff declare's an 8-man tournament for it.

Raw vs. Smackdown
I voted for: Since you could only vote for one, I voted for Matt Hardy. Given the choice, I would also vote for Christian.
The fans will pick: Matt Hardy and Rey Mysterio.
Result: Smackdown gets the win due to interference from another Smackdown star (I mean, all five will have to be there, won't they?)

Steve Austin vs. Jonathan Coachman
I voted for: a verbal debate.
The fans will pick: a Street Fight.
Result: Vince McMahon helps Coachman cheat to win, and JR remains fired.

Mick Foley vs. Carlito
I voted for: Dude Love
The fans will pick: I have no idea.
Result: Foley loses, again.

Diva Battle Royal for the Women's Championship:
I voted for: Leather and Lace, because I don't really know what that means.
The fans will pick: I have no idea.
Result: Mickie James wins, which sets up intrigue between her and Trish Stratus.

Eugene & A Legend (and we use that term loosely) vs. Rob Conway
I picked: Kamala.
The fans will pick: Probably not Snuka, as he's been around rather frequently in the last couple years.
Result: The Con-man gets another win over a washed-up wrestler.

Re: HHH vs Flair.

Correct me if I'm wrong but they never said the IC title was on the line in this match.

And, to me, the «one fall to a finish» stip suggest that it's a no DQ and no countout match, and not a simple 1 on 1 match.

I'll order the show. I was going to pass on this one but the two main matches look really good and I get to see Austin AND Foley wrestle. Works for me.

Intercontinental Championship
I voted for: Submission match.

Result: Triple H wins... lots of blood

Raw vs. Smackdown
I voted for: JBL

Steve Austin vs. Jonathan Coachman
I voted for: a verbal debate.
The fans will pick: a Street Fight.
Result: Austin will win, JR rehired but not as RAW announcer... Steph makes it clear next RAW that JR will be rehired as ass kissing champion or something

Mick Foley vs. Carlito

The fans will pick: Mankind
Result: Carlito is Cool

You are correct, sir.

And on the Taboo Tuesday "Matches" page, they make a point to show that it is a non-title match.

I guess I got confused with the Flair/HHH match because it says "Intercontiental Champion Ric Flair vs Triple H", just like it says "WWE Champion John Cena vs Kurt Angle vs Kane, Big Show, or Shawn Michaels".

I hereby retract the second part of my statement then.

Judging from the Taboo Tuesday page, WWE has decided to quietly forget the "JR gets his job back" stip -- at least, there's no longer any mention of JR in the match description. So I'm changing my prediction for that one to "Batista goes through Coach, Vader, Goldust, and anyone else they throw at him like a wrecking ball through cellophane."

You know what, since they announced last night that the match was now going to be for the IC Championship, while their website (although being updated for the rest of the card changes) still says it's just a grudge match between the two, it's safe to say that the whole company, webmasters included, is as screwed up as the creative team.

I guess we'll have to wait until tonight to see if it's for the title or if the WWE hereby retracts their whole promotion of the title (?) match.
