With the announcement of this "Best of 5" series coming on the same show that features a mini-Taker, would it be surprising if the series included non-wrestling events? Like a rap-off? Or a dance-off?

What percentage of the audience in attendance do you think will want to see Cena win the US title at SS? And what percentage of them do you think will be mightily pissed if Cena wins a match but gets no title?

Well the spoilers say the "best of 5 series" is at Summerslam, so I assume it will all take place in less than 2 weeks at the PPV. Though if they add at least 2 more matches, there might not be a lot of room for that kind of match.

If the entire best-of-5-series is at Summerslam in it's entirety, I wonder if this means Smackdown will get the short end of the stick and have only 3 matches on the card vs. RAW's 4?

It'll be the first Booker/Cena match at SummerSlam, so they can have Cena go over big in Toronto without having to put the title back on him. Then they'll do the next four-probably gimmicked up-over the course of the following month, with Booker winning the final match at Unforgiven. There's no way they'll try any kind of 3/5 Falls or 5-matches-in-a-night-deal at SS.



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.

In Toronto... Cena is over HUGE, so even though a title victory would be better, I think just a regular win would be fine.

Especially with Booker T being habitually injured and Cena having 5 moves.

Exactly. Personally I tihnk the series is a terrible idea, as in order for it to hold the fans' interest long-term they're gonna have to rely on either running the gimmick well dry or Booker and Cena's chemistry being a LOT better than we have any reason to believe. Whatever happens, we're gonna end up with two wrestlers and/or a buncha potentially valuable match stips overexposed.

Personally, I think Book & Cena have meshed very well in the ring over the course of the last month or so. Granted, they've been involved in mostly multi-man matches, but the segments with Book & Cena have been better (IMO) than any combo of Cena/Suzuki/RVD/Reigns.

Isn't Unforgiven currently set to be a RAW only brand PPV? That's what I remember reading last. And Cena is set for some sort of hiatus next month.

That's a great lineup ... but I'm wondering if they may milk the Tag Titles storyline a little longer ... I actually like the way that has been progressed, with Rhyno & Tajiri almost having to "earn" their shot.

As the resident RVD mark, I'm quite upset by his absence. Still, though, it seems like a pretty good card, so I won't complain. Let's just hope that they keep 'Taker/JBL to under 10 minutes.



The answer to WWE's financial problems...

Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.

Well i'm not a resident RVD mark, in fact i usually take the anti-RVD stance, but I'd much rather see him in the US title match, or the World Title match, or either tag match. I just find it hard to believe there is nothing for RVD or Haas to do when Smackdown's roster is pretty thin. Maybe the Kurt/Haas match will make someone realize that one of their better wrestlers is being wasted. Actually a Haas/Angle feud would be great after Angle/Eddie.

Not that continuity means anything in WWE, but Taker and Jordon do have some history together. There was a breif storyline, I think right after Nathan Jones left, where Taker was talking backstage with Jordon, being all chummy and stuff. Kinda like Taker was going to be his mentor or something. It went on for a couple of weeks, then it just got dropped outta nowhere. If they wanted to do a modern day Virgil gimick, they should have just brought back the original.

There may be some continuity in this storyline somewhere, but the chances of WWE mentioning or even remembering it are substantially less than zero.

I'm hopeful that Santino Marella will do okay, because the last time the E did this kind of Cheerful Little Guy Beats the Odds angle was Eugene, and he got over like crazy. (What killed Eugene was the limitations of his gimmick, not the angle.)
