OK, this is what has me confused... it's been announced that Jack Swagger will defend his ECW Championship against Christian next week on ECW on Sci Fi, while on SmackDown, Jeff Hardy will battle Matt Hardy.

Someone explain to me again why they're not saving these matches for... y'know... WrestleMania? Which is not to say they couldn't do those matches again at the pay-per-view, but WrestleMania matches are always best, in my opinion, when you see the so-called "blow-off" matches. Why the heck they'd have those matches at WM25 when they've already been broadcast on free TV is beyond me... not that I'm suffering from Epileptic Tree Syndrome or anything.

I'm betting since Christian got the pin on Swagger two shows in a row he'll either job to Swagger or more likely lose by DQ or countout or something, and maybe build to a Mania match. As for Hardy/Hardy I wouldn't be suprised by a non-finish.

It's not like they would have given Christian/Swagger more than ten minutes on the PPV anyhow.

As Smackdown informed us, we have 44 days until WM. That's a long haul.

Hardy/Hardy will also probably have a gimmick attached to it by the time we get to WM.

I believe we are not supposed to post SD! spoilers, but next week's show has already been taped, so if you are curious to find out the Hardy/Hardy match (assuming it takes place), there are places to find that news.

Your comments seem to conflict. In order to have a "blowoff match" for a feud, you have to have some intermediate matches with inconclusive endings.

Hardy vs Hardy in a TLC Match would be fitting

In a house show in Asheville, NC, yesterday, Christian faced Jack Swagger for the belt. Swagger won after ramming Christian into the post.

Swagger got fantastic heel heat. Second only to Orton.
