Perhaps, long ago, JayJayDean was offered $100 if he could only dribble a basketball five times, and then - TRAGEDY.

    Odds that I will win the money: 1 in 5,000,000 or so, assuming every Raw viewer gets an equal shot

    Odds that I will win the money assuming they restrict participation to Americans only: no chance in hell skooba da deba doo ba da boo ba DOY

    Odds that I will have my time wasted by this contest which really does not stand to benefit me personally in any way: 1 in 1


I was considering buying you something nice with my winnings, but never mind!

Well unfortunately for you there is another Dibiase in wrestling too, Mike Jr. They started training and started their career at the same time. Not sure why Mike Jr. hasn't been signed to at least a developmental contract yet but I'm sure he'll get a chance in the WWE at some point unless he's just a total ass like Teddy Hart.

There's also Nattie Neidhart if they do the second/third generation stable. She should be on the show with the Women's belt anyway.

And there's Jimmy Snuka Jr. and Ray Gordy although they would have to break up their tag teams.

Not wrestling since 2005 is what passes for fresh when you're just reshuffling the deck over and over again. They haven't done Batista/HHH since then either. Still too soon to come back to Edge/Cena, though. I would switch Batista and Orton in the draft. Can you imagine what it would be like to have The Animal on Raw competing against the Raw Superstars?

It'll never happen, but if they wanted fresh matchups you would move Batista to RAW while Hunter and/or Michaels go to SD. You would then have Hunter vs Taker, which hasn't been done in years, or Michaels vs. Taker which hasn't been done in over a decade. Meanwhile on RAW you'd get Dave vs. either Cena or Orton.

Well clearly they aren't going to move HHH and HBK but if you reversed it and sent Taker to Raw and Orton/Cena to Smackdown you could have the same matchups. I know they probably would never move Cena but it's more likely than HHH/HBK.

Of course the best way to make new matchups would be to actually move somebody up the card. MVP vs. HBK, Umaga vs. Taker, Kennedy vs. HHH, Jericho vs. Matt Hardy, Edge vs. Jeff Hardy, Punk vs. Orton. Crazy idea I know.

    Batista vs. Umaga
    Batista vs. Triple H
    Batista vs. Ted DiBiase Jr.


Really? Here's my prediction of what will happen in each:

HBK - beats him on RAW - loses at PPV
Jericho - beats him on both
Umaga - see Jericho
HHH - see HBK
DiBiase - see Jericho and Umaga

Move Jericho, Orton, Carlito, Jeff Hardy and Santino to Smackdown. Then send Batista, Undertaker, Mark Henry and Big Show to RAW. At least this would mean I would only have to watch one WWE product each week.

Here are my predictions.

HBK - loses when Shawn fakes a knee injury
Jericho - wins despite Jericho faking a knee injury
Umaga - wins after Batista Bombing him in a display of power
DiBiase - passes out to the Million Dollar Dream


    Move Jericho, Orton, Carlito, Jeff Hardy and Santino to Smackdown. Then send Batista, Undertaker, Mark Henry and Big Show to RAW.


wait, 'cause Carlito is good? and Undertaker ... isn't?

Regardless of whether you and I care about this means nothing. The fact that someone in this very thread brought up Deal or No Deal, is a good indicator that yes, there are people in the world that will tune in specifically for this.

Me, I like a game show every now and then, but I tend to like your Jeopardy's, Win Ben Stein's money, that sort of thing. But Deal or No Deal is essentially someone pointing at a suitcase and winning money and it garners a bigger audience of all the wrestling on t.v. in a given week. If Vince can get a few of those eyeballs for fifteen minutes a week, I think he'd consider it something. I mean, I don't get it, since ratings are supposed to indicate what you can charge advertisers and last I checked, none of that money goes to WWE anymore so not really sure how a game show/prize giveaway will result in more money for Vince.





Cena can't be beat because he's some unholy genetic recombinate of superstars past. I mean, you might as well call him John "Realest of the Real, Sargent Rock - Cold - A - Mania" Cena.

Ratings also likely determine how much WWE can charge for those "Subway Slam of the Week" kinds of ads too. I'm sure all of THAT money goes to the WWE. Plus, higher ratings equals higher fees when the contract is renewed so yeah, this will benefit the WWE.

Wouldn't those higher ratings have to be sustainable before they could potentially negotiate those higher fees? Admittedly, I'm a complete novice at this sort of thing, but to me unless all those potential new eyeballs stick around once the million dollar thing passes, what good will a couple of 4s do WWE if it levels back to 3.5 before the end of the quarter or whenever these sort of advertising negotiations come up?

No. Because Carlito is awesome and he has great chemistry with Carlito and Jericho. As for UT, he would have better feuds set up for him if he goes to RAW. Smackdown's roster would be too "small" for him. No offense to UT, just the facts.

I'm going to assume he meant Carlito has great chemistry with Santino.

It's not really that much of a compliment, because Santino has great chemistry with everybody. Until he has to...you know, wrestle them. STILL, Santino is a God among men and Carlito - as much as I was a fan of his at one point and think he has the tools - suffers from what at times is very poor work ethic.

Smackdown's main event scene is Batista, Khali, Edge, The Big Show (remember: there's a TALENT EXCHANGE~! between ECW and Smackdown), Umaga (soonish)...so while the argument could be made that there's better workers on the RAW side, it's most definitely not an issue of Smackdown not having any big or bigger men for UT to feud with.
