Well, it appears that my shiny Sacagesundheit coin kicked my butt for Armageddon, so I responded in the most civilized way I could think of: I donated it to the Salvation Army. So, now I introduce to you....my shiny Delaware quarter. Let's see how I do this month, hmm?

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP

CHRIS BENOIT (Challenger)(Heads) vs. KURT ANGLE (Champion)(Tails)


OK, let's see here. Everybody and his brother thinks that Angle and Brock are headlining WrestleMania. That is a match that I would pay to see; not to mention make baseless picks just to watch it happen.

I say: Kurt Angle
Coin says: Chris Benoit

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

SCOTT STEINER (Challenger)(Heads) vs. TRIPLE H (Champion)(Tails)


I've said it before, I'll say it again; I don't think Steiner can last through a match. Tripps retains.

I say: Triple H
Coin says: Scott Steiner

Notice a pattern?

FOR A SPOT IN THE ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH

BROCK LESNAR (Heads) vs. THE BIG SHOW (Tails)


If this match were for the 30th spot in the Rumble, I'd pick Big Show. Since it's not, Brock's my main man.

I say: Brock Lesnar
Coin says: Brock Lesnar

STEPMOTHER VS. STEPDAUGHTER

DAWN MARIE (Heads) vs. TORRIE WILSON (Tails)


It'll all go away, it'll all go away. Just keep thinking that it'll all go away.

I say: Torrie Wilson
Coin says: Torrie Wilson

These next few matches might not be on the card, but they're going to need to flesh it out some if the Rumble's only going to be 40 minutes.

EDIT: One Raw and already some of my predictions aren't even gonna be tested. It's discrimination, I tell you!

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS

THE DUDLEY BOYZ (Challengers) (Heads) vs. LANCE STORM & WILLIAM REGAL (Champions)(Tails)


Explain to me again why Storm & Regal got the belts in the first place. Still, there's no way the Dudleyz get the straps.

I say: Lance Storm & William Regal
Coin says: The Dudley Boyz

WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS

JOHN CENA & B-2 (Challengers)(Heads) vs. LOS GUERREROS (Champions)(Tails)


Pointless filler here, as with the next match.

I say: Los Guerreros
Coin says: John Cena & B-2

WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

WHOEVER THEY GET TO FIGHT KIDMAN (Challenger)(Heads) vs. KIDMAN (Champion)(Tails)


Ah, it's good to see the cruiserweight division being used for hot, important feuds, instead of just mindless spotfests and filler.

I say: Billy Kidman
Coin says: Billy Kidman

Well, I've avoided it long enough. It's time to flip that stupid coin 30 times. The number of heads will be the entry number of the winner of the Royal Rumble.

ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH

30 GUYS WHO WANT A BELT, INCLUDING BROCK LESNAR, THE UNDERTAKER, CHRIS JERICHO, SHAWN MICHAELS, LOS GUERREROS, JOHN CENA, B-2 AND MAYBE STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN, THE ROCK, REY MYSTERIO, GOLDBERG, RHYNO AND ANY OTHER GUYS THEY CAN SCROUNGE UP AT THE LAST MINUTE


One-minute intervals are going to kill this Rumble. Taker's entrance'll probably take two all by itself.

I SAY:
Number one entry: Chris Jericho (That's wrong.)
Number two entry: The Undertaker (That, too.)
Number 30 entry: Stone Cold Steve Austin
Winner: Brock Lesnar
Last man eliminated: Stone Cold Steve Austin

COIN SAYS:
Number one entry: N/A (can't flip for it)
Number two entry: N/A
Number 30 entry: N/A
Winner: Entry number 19
Last man eliminated: Entry number 12

Coin's got two guys going a long ways there. Then again, coin's get Benoit and Steiner winning belts. Coin's also crowing new tag team champions left and right. Well, it's time once again for this month's installment of Raw deal Ramblings.

Velocity, the new expansion to Raw Deal, comes out in February, featuring starters for Brock Lesnar, Goldust and Rey Mysterio. Also featured in starters are The Game, The People's Champion and the Big Freakin' Machine. These last three are remakes of HHH, The Rock and Kane, sporting new hand sizes, superstar values and superstar abilities. They will ahve access to all of their counterparts superstar-specific cards, but will not count as them. For example, The People's Champion can play The People's Elbow, but cannot search for it after he successfully plays Spine Buster. 3-Minute Warning and Jamie Noble are booster-only superstars, and the boosters contain other goodies as well. Chris Benoit and others are getting new cards, with Benoit's increasing his superstar ability against certain competitors. Velocity is shaping up to be one of the best installments of Raw Deal yet. In case you were wondering, Kurtski got thrashed at the December tournament. Absolutely destroyed. Not one win. Never fear, though. Although they will fight against each other at the Rumble proper, Chris Benoit will come in at the Rumble tournament to avenge the ass-kicking that befell Our Olympic Hero. February will probably see a Jericho or People's Team deck, depending on my mood. 12:48 AM's quitting time in these parts, so I'll see you in the Wrestling folder. Bye now.

Well, let's see here. How'd I do? How'd the coin do? How'd I occupy myself when I wasn't at the tournament? The stuff in regular bold is edited, the stuff in italics was there before.

    Score one for gugs, baby.

    WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

    SCOTT STEINER (Challenger)(Heads) vs. TRIPLE H (Champion)(Tails)


    I say: Triple H
    Coin says: Scott Steiner

    Coin wins, but it was by DQ, so I get a moral victory. One pick apiece.

    FOR A SPOT IN THE ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH

    BROCK LESNAR (Heads) vs. THE BIG SHOW (Tails)


    I say: Brock Lesnar
    Coin says: Brock Lesnar

    Sometimes we're both right. 2-2.

    STEPMOTHER VS. STEPDAUGHTER

    DAWN MARIE (Heads) vs. TORRIE WILSON (Tails)


    It'll all go away, it'll all go away. Just keep thinking that it'll all go away.

    I say: Torrie Wilson
    Coin says: Torrie Wilson

    Wishful thinking, gugs. Dawn says it's not over. I'll take Torrie to win at No Way Out.

    WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS

    THE DUDLEY BOYZ (Challengers) (Heads) vs. LANCE STORM & WILLIAM REGAL (Champions)(Tails)


    I say: Lance Storm & William Regal
    Coin says: The Dudley Boyz

    Stupid coin.

    <ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH

    30 GUYS WHO WANT A BELT, INCLUDING BROCK LESNAR, THE UNDERTAKER, CHRIS JERICHO, SHAWN MICHAELS, LOS GUERREROS, JOHN CENA, B-2 AND MAYBE STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN, THE ROCK, REY MYSTERIO, GOLDBERG, RHYNO AND ANY OTHER GUYS THEY CAN SCROUNGE UP AT THE LAST MINUTE


    I SAY:
    Number one entry: Chris Jericho (That's wrong.)
    Number two entry: The Undertaker (That, too.)
    Number 30 entry: Stone Cold Steve Austin I just had a bad night with number picking.
    Winner: Brock LesnarHA!
    Last man eliminated: Stone Cold Steve AustinHe wasn't even in the Rumble; I knew I was taking a gamble when I picked him.

    COIN SAYS:
    Winner: Entry number 19Charlie Hass was entry number 19. The coin was wrong.
    Last man eliminated: Entry number 12I don't remember who was #12, but I know it wasn't Undertaker, the last man to go over the top rope. Nice bit with Maven, though.



Well, I'm pretty sure that I came out of that looking the smarter of the two, so my shiny Delaware quarter's still got a job next month, assuming I don't spend it. I might do something in between now and NWO, but don't bet on it. Until then, I'll see you in the wrestling folder. Bye now.
