Is Benoit not wrestling on this show, really? 'cause Mr. Kennedy's opponent is ... revealed in about 40 minutes, aww you and your spoiler-free euphoria. And Benoit hasn't been on TV in a couple weeks. Oh I have a great opponent for him, the match we've all been waiting for: Chris Benoit vs. Chavo Guerrero.
p.s. Batista and Undertaker will win when Michaels superkicks Cena.
Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... Cena/HBK v. Batista/UT: A friend described this scenario, which I like... ref bump, Rated RKO run-in, Cena/HBK get beat down, Batista/UT don't wanna win that way and attack Rated RKO, Batista gets trapped outside the ring by Rated RKO, superkick, HBK pins UT.
Lashley v. Kennedy: If it's ECW rules, Lashley wins clean; if it isn't... I smell a Kennedy DQ win with the Originals running in to save the title, leading to a rematch on ECW TV which Lashley wins clean.
Hooliganz v. Greasers: Hooliganz retain, because if the Greasers win, then they've totally dismantled SD's only face tag team and the division is pretty much dead in the water again.
CW Title: The rumor I heard was a seven-way, but regardless of the outcome, Helms retains to save his big loss for a more meaningful situation (and after he's been built up some again).
Kane v. Booker: Booker cheats to win, Kane destroys him after the match, and then wins a rematch on SD.
Finlay/Bastard v. Boogeys: Boogeys win. Finlay is bulletproof and Boogey's character would be very much damaged by too many losses. They'll throw the heels a bone by having the Bastard beat Mini-Boogey next week one-on-one.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

I don't know why I didn't have very high expectations for this show, but it turnde out to be very entertaining! (Tough problem, setting the expectations high enough that people buy the PPV, but not so high that they're disappointed.) It was a good PPV!
