Ladies and gentlemen, RVD's flag.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

I was joking in the SD Spoilers when I said it'll be a bullrope match between Guerrero and Bradshaw. Why did that have to come true? 2 PPV's this month. Suppose a person is only going to purchase 1. Which will they purchase: Hell In The Cell, which generally is a bloodbath and exciting (providing they don't have Nash or Ray Traylor in the match) or a bullrope match, a type of match that very rarely is exciting?
RSN: 1-0 1 KO vs. current members of the United States Secret Service.

I agree whole heartedly but I have some faith that Eddie could carry a a broom to a quality match I'm sure he can carry Bradshaw(again) and use the ropes for some fun Lieing, Cheating and Stealing tactics(even though it's..rather legal)

WWE Championship BULLROPE Match Eddie Guerrero (c) vs John Bradshaw Layfield
Continuing in the great tradition of the GAB, a main event gimmick match. I assume this will be another bloodbath, and should be an enjoyable brawl. My expectations for this match have definately raised since last month's PPV.
WWE United States Title Match John Cena (c) vs Booker T
Nice to see Booker getting a shot at the title finally. This is what they should've done when he first came, but I guess they needed someone to feud with Taker. It's better than Dupree anyways.
Handicap Match: The Undertakers vs The Dudleyzzz
This will only work if the Dudleys actually look strong, this could be their push as a credible threat on SD.
Flag Match: Rob Van Dam vs Rene Dupree (w/Flag pole x2)
I wonder how they'll set this one up, it's a fresh matchup to say the least. But a flag match?
WWE Tag Team Titles Match: Rico & Charlie Haas (c) vs Los Chavos
I wonder who will have the Crusier title by the Bash. Hopefully not Chavo Classic. This should be a fun comedy match, if neither Guerrero is Cruiser champ, they should walk out with the tag titles.
Rey Mysterio vs Mark Jindrak
What? This is the best they can come up with for Rey? They seriously couldn't feud him with Ultimo, even over the Crusier title?
Kenzo Suzuki's debut match
Probably will be against Scotty, or Shannon Moore.

Sable has been off tv bcoz one of her breast implants were leaking and it is rumored that Jacqueline will take her place.
SD last week advertised that Sable will be returning this coming week, so unless something has changed in the past few days, she'll be on TV this week.
Considering Yogi Bear doesn't wake up until noon, yet gets every picnic basket that is in Jellystone Park, wouldn't it behoove Ranger Smith to advise those entering the park to consume the contents of said picnic baskets before noon?
Ugh! Well, Bad Blood gets my money for this month. I hate Bradshaw and do believe they will put the title on him, so Cena can take it off him. At least, thats what I hope will happen. I noticed Mordeci is not present. That is weird since, they have been making a big deal out of him. I like his look and as with any new wrestler it will take time with in-ring work.
Smackdown needs a major trade or dare I say get Big Show back or at least hope to God, Kurt is recovered in time for SummerSlam. This looks like a really weak PPV and that is saying something after Judgement Day.
I still have a feeling that they'll have Eddie/JBL in a Last Man Standing match, since the stipulation seems to fit the storyline more than a random Bullrope match would considering Bradshaw's trying to get away from his cowboy days. But if MELTZER said it...
A straightforward FCA no-DQ match would be far preferable to any other situation. A wild all-over brawl, with Angle at ringside constantly bailing JBL out a la Austin/Love from Over The Edge '98. Not as extreme as that level of sports entertainment, but similar.
Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.
I'm very skeptical, but I'm sure Eddie can pull some cool spots out of a Bullrope Match. But again, his opponent is BRADSHAW! It's like the punchline of a really bad joke (What's worse than one Bradshaw PPV main event? TWO Bradshaw PPV main events!).
If the UT/Dudleyz match does happen at the PPV, then I hope this'll be the final nail in the coffin on the Dudz' WWE career. I mean, really...win or lose, what would this feud do for ANY of the participants involved?
Maybe if I pawn this thing, I can finally pay off that damn collection agency!
Anyways, I don't really care whether or not it's an entertaining card or not, because the buyrate is going to bomb again, and that's really all that matters in the big picture. At least Cena-Booker and Van Dam-Dupree are fresh, but the undercard looks about as good as Judgment Day's (not very).
Actually, yes there was something stopping Vince from signing Benoit, Jericho, and Guerrero straight from ECW when Easy E signed them: MONEY. I'd go into a history rant right now, but it doesn't really seem worth it.
