Now, the complete card isn't finalized....but there's three matches that have caught my eye, for the simple reason that on eof the participants in each match has everything to lose....and has potential to reach the next step, or continue wallowing where they are. And the interesting thing is, each of the three are wrestling against great workers, which means if they botch it....well, they did it to themselves.



Hell in a Cell
Triple H vs. Chris Jericho

I've made it abundently clear in another thread on this board that this is Jericho's make or break match. He HAS to do well in this match. If not, then any chance of him being a main eventer in the WWE is shot. If he doesn't win the match....even if he does his best and puts out the match of his life, I don't know how far it wil go in the eyes of the fans. If he wins with the match of his life....we'll see what the WWE does. They've botched him too much already.


Hair vs. Hair Match
Kurt Angle vs. Edge

Edge is an interesting position. His last match with Angle (aka Midas) was a showstealer, and eliminated many doubts about him. This match could easily propel him to the top....but if he does poorly, then the doubts will resurface. Plus if he loses....well the obvious will happen. ~BALD EDGE.


Intercontinental Championship
Rob Van Dam vs. Eddie Guerrero

Is RVD a overrated spot machine? Or is he truely deserving of a push to the main event? Only this match will tell. Eddy has been Eddy sense his return, so this is RVD's biggest chance. If RVD puts in a greta show and LOSES, I see a main event push.

I disagree on the Hell in a Cell, I do think this is a HUGE match for Jericho, but I don't think HHH deserves to be considered a "great" worker anymore. Sure, he used to be, but he hasn't been the same since he came back. He hasn't had one stand-out 4+ star match since he came back (and he's wrestled both Angle and Jericho). I think Jericho is CLEARLY been the better and more consistent worker over the past 5 months and if the Hell in a Cell isn't good, I'd be willing to bet it's gonna be because of HHH. And I'll STILL be shocked if Three H's puts him over. May even have a heartattack.

As for Edge-Angle, I 100% agree with you, I'm in the "had doubts...washed away" category myself. I honestly don't see any way Edge can lose this match, Angle being bald is a short-term funny moment (he'd look normal in what? 2 weeks) where as Edge going bald could honestly ruin him. The key, as you said, is the match quality.

I also agree with RVD-Eddie. I don't think he wins this match and his performance in it dictates where he goes from here. If he's subpar, he's gonna move on down the ladder.

I'd also throw in Booker T-Goldust (assuming it happens). I think this is huge for Booker, I still can't tell if he's supposed to be the heel or the face though. Either way, he's in a position where he's supposed to get over (don't think Goldust is the best opponent to get him over, but oh well) and if he doesn't do it, he may not get another main event run, which, I, for one, definitely think he has left in him.

Also, could throw Holly-Orton in there for both of them, should they actually do the match, which I'm not holding my breath on.

I'd say something more along the lines of HHH moves like Teddy Ruxpin, but doesn't cut as exciting promos as Ruxpin.

Jericho had better win this.

And I'm STILL reeling in shock that Hunter let Jericho dominate their last match at SmackDown, which kicked ass all over their WMX8 match. The difference being I didn't have to pay $40 for the better match. Gotta love the WW... WW... fuck it.

I see Booker T as being too talented and experinced for this to be *the* crossroads of his career. Besides that, the fans love the guy (casual, marks, and smarks) and he works wlel with pretty much anyone.

That Teddy Ruxpin joke is the funniest damn thing I've read in a week.

I don't think Jericho and H could put on a bad match in the HITC. NO fucking way, the only bad one ever was the kennel(which al snow got ribbed about on jakked btw). Also it doesn't matter if Jericho wins or not. As long as he takes the "big bump" he will come out gold.

RVD and Eddy have been working in tags for a month now so they know each others styles better and I'm expecting the show stealer from them.

I would love if somehow Angle and Eddy could get in a program but barring a face turn for one of them were not going to see it for a while. I do think Angle will job to Edge. Jeez the guy probobly hasn't cut his hair since he was playing with a motherfucking Teddy Ruxpin.

Anyway. My predictions so far... HHH;RVD;Edge.

The big bump doesn't help everyone (Rikishsi). The match itself doesn't help everyone (Bossman/Snow, Bossman/Undertaker). Jericho HAS to deliver the match of his life.

EDIT: Fixed MAD typos =\

Not for nothing, whether that was a typo or a simple joke, I can't help but think now of Ray Traylor frollicking around the woods, totally nude save two moss pasties on his nipples and a moss pastie on his little Bossman, all the while nibbling on tree bark.

Thanks for putting that into my head.



While working security at a local indy show, I saw Ricky Morton's bare ass, and the next time I hear anybody out there say "playing Ricky Morton", the person they mention had best have a really nice ass.

I think that this is a crossroads of his career for one reason only--his age. If this face turn goes well, he might be in for one more big main-event push. If it doesn't, he'll probably stay in the mid-card until he's ready to hang it up. Because he is so talented and popular, I don't think he's in any danger of losing his spot, but I think this may be his last shot at moving up the card significantly.

Booker T's only 35. 2 years older than Benoit, and younger than 2 members of the nWo, Austin, Regal, Faarooq, Al Snow, Godfather...

He could possible put in a good 5-6 years..

Triple M, Booker also has knees as bad as Austin. Some people have had careers shorten with better knees in bad shape, but then there's Austin whose still going. Take it for what it's worth.
