Torrie/Dawn: Turns into a three way when Jackie Gayda (from TE2) comes down and says she was having an affair with Al Wilson while he was married to Dawn Marie. Then shows footage of her and Al "doing it". A three way "mess" ensues and the fans are treated to the best women's wrestling match ever!

Dudleys/Europeans: The referees spend the first ten minutes "searching" Lance and William for the brass knuckles. However, they fail to check the most obvious spot: Regal's hand. As Regal goes to punch Bubba, Bubba (in a nod to the most underrated movie ever "Gladiators" and no not he one with Russell Crowe), puts his head down and Regal cracks the nuks on the steel plate on the top of Bubba's head. D'Von then pulls the tables out and 3Ds Regal. Morely protests, gets the 3D, as does Storm, Bishoff, the Ref, Fink, JR, King, Tazz, Cole, the Spanish Announcing Team, the ring photographers and for old times sake, Mae Young. DQ win for the Europeans.

Brock/Big Show: Big Show, sick of heyman, chokes slams himself and lets Brock win in ten seconds. The two big men embrace and the crowd is happy.

HHH/Steiner: They pose, they shove, they flex, they yell, they spew catchphrases, they do pushups, they do jumoing jack, squat thrusts, pulls ups, sit ups, deep kneee bends, balance on one leg, touch their fingers to their noses, and just when you thought you had seen it all, Flair hits Steiner with the taser and HHH pins him for the win. Crowd is silent because they are in utter awe of the physical display they just saw.

Angle/Benoit: Unfortunately, these two have to follow a MOTY in HHH/Steiner. They do their best but can't even come close to the level of intesnsity in the previous match, or in the women's three way earlier. Fans boo and demand their money back. HHH fires Angle and Benoit.

Rumble: Jericho and HBK eliminate each other 1 minute in. Maven and Nowistki, with the help of Chad for TE 3, the #30 entry, clear all other super stars and stand alone. For the next 30 minutes, we are treated to some of the most stellar wrestling ever. The end comes when all three tumble out of the ring and land on the floor at the same time. All three will go onto to face the RAW Champ at Wrestlemania in a sick four way Hell in the Cell/Casket Match.

Money well spent.

Bravo! I haven't laughed this hard since Patrick wanted to get banned.

Seriously though, those were the best predictions ever. I would love to see a "Deep Knee Bend" competition, just not with HHH and BPP.

WHERE HAS FREEWAY GONE? HE PROMISED TO UPDATE THE RUMBLE MATCH!!

Ok, I'll do it.

FROM RAW:
Batista
Booker T
Chris Jericho (#2 Spot)
Chris Nowinski
Christian
Goldust
Jamal
Jeff Hardy (won qualifying match vs. Raven)
Kane
Maven
Rob Van Dam
Rosey
Shawn Michaels (#1 Spot)
Test
Tommy Dreamer

FROM SMACKDOWN:
A-Train
B2
Bill DeMtt
Charlie Haas
Chavo Guerrero
Eddie Guerrero
Edge
John Cena
Matt Hardy
Rey Mysterio
Rikishi
Shelton Benjamin
Tajiri
winner of Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show

If you've counted them up, you know that only adds up to 29. I thought the last wrestler was going to be OVW's The Damaja, but now I see a thread saying that he's not going. Before I found out about Damaja's disappearence, I thought he might be beaten up by the loser of the Lesnar/Show match (Big Show), who would then take his place in the Rumble. Or it could be a special surprise!

Anyway, my predictions:
World Title Match: Triple H retains, although it will have a ref bump, during which Steiner will pin Triple H, and then Flair will try to help him, and then Batista & Randy Orton come out to help HHH win. 4 HORSEMAN 4 LIFE, BABY!

WWE Title Match: Chris Benoit wins by disqualification.

Step Match: Dawn Marie will be announced as "Dawn Marie Wilson." Torrie wins the match, though.

WWE Tag Match: Dudley Boyz win, when Spike steals Regal's brass knuckles again.

Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show: Lesnar F5's Big Show AGAIN, he gets the win and the rumble spot.

Royal Rumble: Lesnar wins from the oh, let's say 20th spot.

EDIT: Apparently Hurricane & Trish are out. So let's make it, um, hold on a second, let me go to raw.wwe.com , and see who is actually on the roster. Ah-ha.
PRE PPV Heat Match: Victoria vs. Jacqueline - Victoria pins Jacqueline with help from Steven Richards.

Hurricane and Trish are at the World so that won't be the Heat match but I wouldn't be surprised if it involves Steven Richards. It usually does.

What's the line on whether there will be a D'Lo promo claiming he'd be the Rumble if he were white?

I still think the 30th Rumble spot will be The Undertaker. I shudder to think about the other ideas that are floating around this board for him actually happening.

Dawn Marie v Torrie- PICK: TORRIEBERG- In the 3 minute filler that has the focus of a WrestleMania main event you have to go with TorrieBerg who's slaps are more powerful then 50 Triple H sledgehammers and sells as well as the ice cream man in Northern Alaska, IT'S TORRIEBERG.

Brock v Show- PICK: LESNER- Pretty obvious.

Dudleys v Storm/Regal: PICK: STORM/REGAL- I would have chosen the Dudley's but it seems like my predictions all but one face wins. So I have to pick the heels here.

Angle v Benoit- PICK: ANGLE- Much like my cat keeps chasing his tail Benoit keeps chasing his World Title dream.

HHH v Steiner- PICK: STEINER- In a huge upset Steiner wins, call it a hunch

Royal Rumble- PICK: BROCK LESNER- On his way to a WrestleMania main event with Kurt Angle (which will not get the same focus as Torrie/Dawn had these months). Brock looks like a safe bet, unless TorrieBerg enters herself in with her slaps o'doom then all bets are off

HANDICAPPING THE ROYAL RUMBLE
Entrant [#th Rumble; any Final Four finishes (and any wins)
Brock Lesnar [1st Rumble] or Big Show [4th Rumble: 1]
Chris Jericho [2nd Rumble]
Shawn Michaels [7th Rumble; 3]
Batista [1st Rumble]
A-Train [4th Rumble]
Booker T [2nd Rumble]
Edge [3rd Rumble]
Eddy Guerrero [1st Rumble]
Kane [7th Rumble; 3]
Rey Mysterio [1st Rumble]
Matt Hardy [3rd Rumble]
Chavo Guerrero [1st Rumble]
Bill DeMott [1st Rumble]
Rikishi [9th Rumble; 1]
Goldust [5th Rumble]
Test [5th Rumble]
Jeff Hardy [3rd Rumble]
Christian [3rd Rumble]
Maven [2nd Rumble]
Rob Van Dam [2nd Rumble]
B2 [2nd Rumble]
Rosey [1st Rumble]
Jamal [1st Rumble]
Chris Nowinski [1st Rumble]
Tajiri [1st Rumble]
Charlie Haas [1st Rumble]
Shelton Benjamin [1st Rumble]
John Cena [1st Rumble]
mystery entrant

Handicapping is very subjective. I basically imagined that my brain was as damaged as a WWF booker: Basically, 5 of the 15 Royal Rumbles had a first-time winner (including the first in 88). MEANING, basically, 1 in 3 Rumbles has a first-time Rumble entrance win. Of those (Yokozuna, John Studd, Jim Duggan, Ric Flair), the average size was HOSS sized...Brock Lesnar is also HOSS sized. Therefore, if he gets in the Rumble, he'll have the best chance. If Lesnar doesn't win, it's between Jericho, HBK and the mystery entrant (one of Rhyno, Hogan, Undertaker & Stone Cold Steve Austin). Hogan's won twice and Austin's won three, so if they're in it...they may go all the way.

BUT, they probably won't be. In that case, place yer bets on Lesnar, Jericho or Michaels.

It's wit like that that makes the internet wrestling community what it is today.

On a more serious note, I'll be ordering the Rumble, and I'm looking forward to it since there isn't a blatantly obvious winner. Brock's the favorite, but he seems likely to get the title shot one way or another, so perhaps a Raw guy will pull off the upset(simply because the Raw side doesn't seem to have much set up beyond HHH vs. Steiner). I don't get Smackdown so I'm looking forward to seeing Angle vs. Benoit.

I can't seem to find anything about Diesel happening in the Royal Rumble in 1993? Do you have a year wrong, or are you possibly thinking of some other wrestler?

It also ended a feud with one 10 second match. Remember the match with Shawn Stasiak(I think it was him.) where Regal pulls out the knucks right in front of the ref, socks Stasiak with them, puts them back in his trunks( STILL with the ref watching!!!) and goes down for the 3 count which the ref did happily.

Ahh... good times, good times.

Anyone see this tonight? I thought it was a REALLY well done piece by WWE, focusing on last year's WM, with behind the scenes footage and interviews. Focused mostly on a few matches- Austin v.s Rock, Angle v.s Lesnar for the most part.
