Since I'm kicking off threads...

HEY! A whopping FIVE matches have been announced! So tell me, on Monday who will have won between...

World Heavyweight Championship: Batista vs. Triple H

(World tag team championship on the line?) Muhammad Hassan & Daivari vs. Shawn Michaels & Hulk Hogan

Intercontinental Championship: Shelton Benjamin vs. Chris Jericho

Last Man Standing: Edge vs. Chris Benoit

Kane (with Lita) vs. Viscera (with Trish Stratus)

...because I sure as heck ain't buying it. ;-)

Didn't they announce during the match that it was a non-title affair?

Yeah, pretty sure Hassan and Daivari did not win the titles. I've heard rumors that there's going to be a tag team turmoil match on the card, but I'm not sure.

6 days before a 35 dollar PPV and they've only announced five matches. Pretty sad, IMHO.

Here are my pics:

Batista over HHH. This feud totally lost its steam after Wrestlemania. Really not looking forward to seeing this headline at least 2 more PPV's including...probably a Hell In A Cell. Lame. I think the match will end in some DQ or lame finish to prolong this boring feud to June. I'm sick of HHH. I want to see some fresh matches and feuds already instead of HHH vs. whoever.

Edge over Benoit in what will probably be the match of the night. Seems to be the logical conclusion to this feud.

Benjamin over Jericho.

Hogan and HBK over Hassan and Daivari. I dunno, I wouldn't be surprised if Hassan and Daivari won, but I'll just say Hogan and HBK for now.

Kane over Viscera. Good God, I never thought I would see the day of Viscera on a WWE PPV again. This is how bad the WWE is right now...Viscera returns to PPV this Sunday.

Tag Team Turmoil 4, where the tag team titles are on the line in this type of match for the first time. Its also the least amount of teams that have ever competed in this type of match. I say the Heartthrobs win.

A couple matches could make this a watchable show, but its a very underdeveloped and could be better card.

No matches for Christian or the tag team champs either.

Yes, tonight's tag match was nontitle, although it was only mentioned once (just before the match started, IIRC).

Batista/Triple H: Batista.

Edge/Benoit: Edge.

Benjamin/Jericho: Benjamin.

Hogan & HBK/Hassan & Daivari: Yeah, like Hogan is going to job in what might be his last match ever.

Kane/Viscera: I'm going to say Viscera, because what's really important here is furthering the always-thrilling Trish/Lita feud.

As for further match possibilities: Regal & Tajiri/Dean & Maven would make okay, though hardly PPV-worthy, filler. I'm sure we can expect some crap with the divas to promote Divasearch 2005.

Batista over HHH leading to Vengeance.

Shelton Benjamin over Chris Jericho as Y2J continues to take losses. A heel turn is coming, oh yes.

Kane over Viscera. Hopefully this lasts about as long as the Sumo match at WM 21.

Edge over Benoit after some sort of shenanigans.

HBK/Hogan over Hassan/Daivari. This will NOT be Hogan's last match in WWE, especially after this match gets more heat than any of the other matches.

Additional matches include a possible Masterlock Challenge or tag title match.

Benjamin vs. Jericho: Hell froze over and Jericho won a match on RAW. In his role as Y2JTTS, he won't win two in a row. Benjamin wins.

Edge vs. Benoit: Since Edge is the #1 contender in waiting, that means he loses. Sets up a future match with the briefcase on the line. Benoit wins.

His Highness King Mabel vs. Kane: Would have been more impressed by Mabel on RAW if he broke out the Al Wilson/Herb Tarlek/Back of a '77 Pinto line of suits. Still, it is a year ending in 5, and Mabel has his success in that year. Mabel wins, dragging out the Trish vs. Trash feud for another few months.

Hogan/Michaels vs. Hassan/Daivari: Conventional logic states neither Hogan or Michaels gets pinned. However, since Michaels keeps talking about how God will prevent him from turning heel, it should flash the shining light that a heel turn is coming. See Sting/Flair vs. Pillman/Anderson from Havoc '95 for how this plays out. Ends up with Michaels realizing that Hassan and Daivari are religious men like him, they leave Hogan for dead in the ring setting up a Hogan/Michaels match down the line. No Contest/Some form of DQ that is never announced.

Batista vs Trip: Trip ending RAW in the victor position at one point would have been an indicator of him losing, but that indicator has been off recently. Hometown the past few years has also meant someone jobbing, but Trip isn't someone. The hometown boy gets #11 and sets up a rematch before Batista gets sent to the midcard by SummerSlam. Trip wins.

Unless they are having Benoit/Edge and Jericho/Benjamin go 45 minutes each, there probably will be multiple DivaCrapFest segments to eat up airtime.

HHH/Batista: If theyre serious about Batista in the long run, hell retain here.

Shelton/Jericho: Shelton retains.

Edge vs. Benoit: Edge wins, but collapses. Come to think of it, when was the last time a face won a Last Man Standing match in the WWE? Was it Jericho/Kane?

Hogan/Michaels vs. Hassan/Daivari: Hogan getting pinned? I cant see him coming back just for that. Michaels? Not on PPV. Hassan? Hes still got the undefeated streak going. Looks like Daivaris taking one for the team here.

Viscera vs. Kane: Viscera scores the dirty win somehow.

Jesus, this is a thin card.

This event will probably exceed my expections because they are so low at this point with the poor build.

Batista over HHH, they can't make the same mistake that they did with Orton.

Kane over Viscera. Would be funny if Trish made Viscera lose to get out of the ''payment''.

Edge over Benoit.

Shelton over Y2J (so Jericho can go to Smackdown)

Tag champs retain.

Hogan/HBK over Hassan/Daviari.

Edge vs. Benoit: Edge.

Jericho vs. Benjamin: Jericho.

Daiviri/Hussein vs. Hogan/HBK: Daiviri/Hussein.

If people think this will be Hogans "ONE LAST MATCH" they're seriously mistaken. Hogan will work for Vince again one day. He IS back, after all, for advertising for his new show, right? At least, that will come up eventually....

-World Champion Batista def. Triple H via pinfall
-Hulk Hogan & Shawn Michaels def. Mohammad Hassan & Khosrow Daivari via Hogan pinfall on Hassan
-Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin def. Chris Jericho via pinfall
-Chris Benoit def. Edge via 10 count
-Kane def. Viscera via pinfall

The Torch says there's Tag Team Turmoil featuring La Resistance, Maven & Simon Dean, Hurricane & Rosey, the Heart Throbs & William Regal & Tajiri with the Tag Titles on the line. Let's say the Heart Throbs get the win, setting up a rematch for Vengeance.

Batista over Triple H- It would be bad to end his title reign so soon, but I don't see Trips jobbing two PPVs in a row (although I said I did think he'd job 2 WM's in a row either)...lets call shennanigans leading to a DQ or some schmoz

Hogan and Michaels over Hassan and Daivari- If Michaels had any other partner, I'd probably say the Arabs go over

Jericho over Benjamin- hopefully doesn't end the feud, though

Edge over Benoit- just because

Kane defeats Viscera- come on....IT'S VISCERA.

EDIT: Tag Team Turmoil: I'll go with the Champs retaining.

Batista over HHH- by DQ after HHH's sledghammer onslaught. Batista demands a rematch, hell in a cell at vengeance.

Edge over Benoit- really, what knockout move does benoit really have? the diving headbutt that busts himself open? jeez.

hogan/hbk over hassan/davairi- no need to explain.

benjamin over y2j- thank god, and jericho goes to sd. hopefully as a heel, because i really hate him as a face.

viscera over kane- kane can't really do much to vis. chokeslam him? possibly. i just dont see kane winning, unless trish interference.

tag team turmoil??- i don't really care. raw has crappy tag teams anyway. the latest laugh, the heart watevers. what a joke. if there is some rematch at vengeance with the heart thobs, damn. My first ever live event i go to, vengeance, and i have to see them.

doesnt look very good, unless they make another match. diva search again?? sh*t!! maybe they'll have an actual wrestler break out of the masterlock and there, setting up a fued for vengeance.

Batista over Trips by DQ - Trips gets desperate and gets caught by Mike "Vigilant" Chioda using the sledgehammer after Batista kicks out of the Pedigree, not once, but twice. This sets up the HITC at Vengeance, in which Trips gets an ass-kicking to rival the one he received from Cactus Jack at the 2000 Royal Rumble, and after which Flair turns face on him after Trips loses decisively.

The Egomaniacs over Those Arabs Who Speak The Truth - If they can't put Hassan & Daivari over (and they won't, since Hogan is in there), the correct booking decision is Shawn pinning Daivari. Hopefully that's the route they'll go.

Edge and Benoit go to a double-countout draw, pissing off the marks and setting up a ladder match for Vengeance with the briefcase on the line, which Edge will win.

Benjamin over God - *sighs* Jericho's gonna be stuck in limbo until after the Benoit/Edge feud has run his course, since I figure Jericho/Edge is next in the Edge stall-fest until we reach Unforgiven, where Edge invokes his contract immediately after Batista retains in a tough match against Benoit and steals the title in a cheap five-minute cop-out match.

Viscera over Kane - In its own sick way, this is the most interesting match on the card, since Viscera has suddenly shown some talent for entertainment out of NOWHERE and the whole love triangle is hitching on for the ride as a backdrop. And given Trish's injuries, they have to keep the dynamic going for as long as possible.

Tag Team Turmoil - I think this is totally dependent on the route that they decide to take Hassan in after the show. If they're going to keep pushing Hassan in singles and send him to feud with Benjamin, one of the heel teams (probably Simon Dean & Maven, since it's WAYYY too early for the Heartthrobs) take it, but if they're going to push Hassan/Daivari as a team, Regal & Tajiri retain. I would have bet on the former until Raw, now I'm betting on the latter.

Batista & John Cena represent instant upgrades over their predecessors as world champions. However, there's still a general state of backlash around Cena and a specific state over the way he won (however misguided it may be), and the usual tag/cruiserweight complaints persist. The rematches should be interesting, however...

Quick predictions...

1) Tag team turmoil - Tajiri/Regal retain.

2) Benjamin/Jericho - Jericho wins title by surprise pinfall.

3) Edge/Benoit - Edge wins and the briefcase will be a factor in the end.

4) Viscera/Kane - Kane wins by pinfall after interference by Trish backfires.

5) Hogan/HBK vs Hassan/Daivari - HBK/Hogan wins by pin, HBK superkicks Daivari into oblivion and Hogan gives Hassan the boot (Daivari will do the job, so Hassan will still say that he hasn't been pinned since coming to the WWE).

6) HHH/Batista 2: Electic Boogaloo - The usual HHH blood loss will happen. Batista will get out of the pedigree, and Flair interference will give the match to Batista by DQ, and Batista will get destroyed by HHH/Flair/hammer. This will lead to HHH/Batista 3:HITC. That match could go either way, depending on when Edge will use his title shot.

With Hogan fighting Hassan on the sidelines

HHH V Batista- Batista is stunned by the pedigree, and as HHH celebrates and goes for ''Sister Sledge'' Batista dummies and grabs the sledge and throws it away and powerbombs HHH ..Batista retains

Edge V Benoit- Wow may well be worth the price of the PPV alone...err no not really , but you know Benoit will give all he has got. Edge to retain for no other reason as continuity. How can you have the number 2 contender lose to a mid carder and still reatin some heat.

Shelton V Jericho- Shelton to retain

Kane V Viscera - Kane to win??? Its a PPV folks Viscera wins and Kane jobs again.

Tag Team Turmoil- Looking at the participants it comes down to 2 teams for me. Hearthrobs or Regal/Tajiri.. Hearthrobs to win ..Regal to promote his book and Tajiri to work with someone else.

HHH defeats Batista. New Champ. Old shit.

Edge defeats Benoit. Making Edge look like a credible contender for the title, a LMS victory over Benoit definitely helps.

Benjamin defeats Jericho. Should be a great match, but I still hate it that any time they have nothing else to do for Jericho, they throw him into the IC title mix, which should be waaaaay below him.

Hogan/HBK defeat Hassan/Daivari. Maybe I'm all markish, but two of the biggest names in the business should not lose to two relative newbies.

Kane defeats Viscera. Otherwise I'll puke my guts out.

Tag Team Turmoil? If yes, look out for the Heart Throbs to get the title in a "shocking" upset.

Sweet dreams......
