Before anyone else starts ANOTHER thread asking where they are....
Thanks to Eddy Cornelison for the following:
Yes the worlds greatest recapper is delivering you the SD spoilers. Lets start off with the boring dark matches.
Carlos Colon beat Paul London. Quite sad.
Brent Albright was beaten by Orlando Jordan. The Velocity announcers were out for this match but no pyro yet.
Danny Basham vs. Billy Gunn. The Basham brothers switched a few times but Billy won.
Mark Jindrak beat Shannon Moore
Rico beat Jamie Noble
Kurt comes out and says he has a trophy that he is going to give to one person that will be determined by a series of matches then a vote on WWE.com. The winner also gets a title shot.
Bradshaw arrived in a limo with bull horns on the front. He made fun of his limo driver for being Mexican.
Big Show vs. Rikishi
Boring match where Show got the win after a choke slam.
Rey Mysterio and Spike vs. The Chavos
Spike won with a Dudley dog on Chavo.
After the match Bradshaw beat up both men.
RVD vs. Charlie Hass
RVD and Hass were both counted out then Angle came out and said he will decide the winner on points and he declared Hass the winner.
Booker T is in the back with Angle. Booker says he would be a good champion for SD. Angle then enters him into the tourney thingy. He says he will have to fight non other then HARDCORE HOLLY!
Booker T cuts a promo that wont air on how people in Columbus are ugly. Your preaching to the choir Book.
Booker T vs. Holly
Boring match that Booker won with a rollup with the tights.
Akio and Sakoda vs. The Dudley boys
Dudley boys won with a 3D on Akio.
Holly comes out and calls out Booker again. AKA they retaped the ending that Holly messed up.
Eddie arrives and talks it up with Bradshaw’s limo driver.
Rene Dupree comes out to watch the next Cena match.
Cena does a lackluster rap.
Cena vs. The FBI
Cena beats them pretty quickly after an FU on the bull.
Next Angle comes out and announces that the people that you can vote for on WWE.com for the number one contender are: Big Show, Charlie Hass, Booker T, Cena and a man who everybody can respect… BRADSHAW!
Eddie comes out and cuts a promo but its cut short when Bradshaw rides out in his limo. Bradshaw talks about how successful he is and how the only thing he doesn’t have is the WWE title but he soon will. Bradshaw goes on to say what he did last week was for the sake of business and it was nothing personal. Eddie says his personal life is his business. So he runs after Bradshaw who tries to hide in his limo roof but ends up getting his hat taken from him. Eddie taunts Bradshaw about his hat and has fans pour food and spit in it. Bradshaw complains about how his hat was $1,000 now it’s worthless. That’s when the show ends. IMO Bradshaw did a great job at playing a heel. I guess he took a lot of lessons since last week.
After the show Bradshaw calls out Eddie but instead gets Undertaker.
Bradshaw and Taker stand in the ring and Bradshaw is really nervous. He delivers a funny speech about a lot of things like how they are from Texas are veterans and go way back. He says stuff like I could punch you out right now but I don’t want to I wanted Eddie to come out. Bradshaw ends up getting a choke slam then a tombstone.
Biggest Pops 1. Cena 2. Undertaker 3. Eddie
1. Bradshaw 2. Booker T (during the anti-Columbus promo) 3. Hardcore Holly (when he came back out to challenge Booker again after the fans turned on him towards the end of the match)
Sounds reasonable enough. Dupree/Cena should be fun and hopefully Bradshaw gets some sort of rub from Taker (insert snide remark here ;))
EDIT: Oh crap, forgot the source. pwtorch.com (not that they evr get antsy about people forgetting....)
Interesting. I wonder if the WWE is actually planning to use a straight poll, or if this is going to be another one of their legendary "loaded" polls where the winner will end up being the guy they already decided would win.
(Here's a hint: if your number one contender is BRADSHAW, especially over Cena, then the survey was loaded.)

I'm sure you appreciate that the very absence of Funaki from the reckoning makes the poll null and void in any case
In answer to the question, I'd fancy they'll hope to 'load' it by having Bradshaw continue to be the guy who pisses Eddie off the most, thus making it 'Who do you want to see Eddie kick the crap out of?', rather than Who do you want to see main eventing?
They do appear to have the back-up plan of Bradshaw/Taker teased here though so it may not be entirely without basis in fact.
Originally posted by reddragonDo you hate wretling dMr you sound like a British publication called Power Slam which in my humble opinion looks very negatively towards the wwe
Um, no. What on earth gave you that idea? 'Sounds reasonable enough' rarely implies hatred, and if you would take the time to look through a number of my past posts I spend a great deal of time defending the WWE, Vince, and hell, even internet whipping boy HHH.
If anything I generally try to focus on the positive, thus my praise for Dupree/Cena as a potential feud, and the idea that Bradshaw might be helped to ME or upper-mid card status by interaction with Taker.
I expressed doubts somewhat playfully about the authenticity of the poll results, but frankly I think they'd be absolutely crazy to book feuds according to a poll like that (largely because I'm sure if you threw Austin or Rock in there they'd stand a pretty good chance of winning every time)
I'm genuinely fascinated that I've given you the impression that I'm even mildly pissed with the product based on either this thread, or thingsI've written in the past.
Feel free to enlighten me through the wonders of the PM though for I fear that such discussions in the public board are frowned upon ;)
So, Jindrak and Rico have been relagated to Velocity?! Maybe it's not so much of a demotion for Rico, he was never a major player on RAW, but Jindrak was being pushed as a tag up-n-comer on RAW, was getting quite a bit of TV time in that role, and now he's on Velocity. I wonder if they're planning on repackaging him. Hell, both guys could use a makeover.
So sayeth Randy Stilton, the real Stinky Cheese Man!
(I'm told that, in the UK, my name is actually hilarious.)

Keep in mind that both Shelton Benjamin and Bradshaw spent quite a lot of time in the past few months in Velocity Hell. In fact, it was maybe a year ago that they had Bradshaw working dark matches (presumably due to conduct during the “Flight from Hell”). In the long run, it really means nothing.
Not sure what "Flight From Hell" you're referring to, but if its the most publicised one then that was *two* years ago, and Bradshaw got a huge push on Raw almost immediately following it. So I doubt that he was working punishment duty for anything to do with it.
And what is this "Booker rolling up Holly for the win" business? Book just turned heel, they should be giving him some strong wins to establish him on SD. Holly should have eaten the Book End for the pin (1 set of spoilers I read mentioned "Book End gets a 2 count", leading me to believe Holly may have kicked out of the BE [what???]). If they want to have Book interject some cheating, have him nail Holly in the nuts to set up the Book End. I don't see the logic behind protecting Bob Holly.
Originally posted by Super Shane SpearThey could show Bradshaw on his HEEL laptop stuffing the ballot.
Who ever heard of a fictitious election?
I can tell I'll like the buildup to Eddie/Bradshaw. But if they can't deliver in that main event match, it'll leave quite a stain on both men. But if they're putting Bradshaw in a title program and having him do off-air segments with Undertaker, they must be pretty serious about him. I'm really hoping Bradshaw realizes what's being given to him and he backs up his awesome character makeover in the ring.
I also read the spoilers at the Observer and they have Angle verbally burying Triple H in a promo, saying he wouldn't have lasted 3 minutes on Smackdown. Nice to finally see someone burying Hunter in a promo for a change rather than vice-versa.

Absolutely. He did a brief look at the hand and then grimaced before going for a pin last Thursday, which I thought was a nice touch to get rid of some of his face mannerisms. Either cheapshot his opponents to set up the finisher or just hit the finisher, pick Holly back up and hit it again then use a cocky pin.
Booker is supposed to be disgusted with being on the second-rate show, and when he's facing the guy who ran his mouth in the back about what he was going to do for disrespecting the lockerroom, I'd expect Booker to go ahead and prove dominance over at least the lower mid-card guys. He should only be losing (or heavily cheating to win) against the big name faces.
Of course wishing for Holly to get squashed hasn't amounted to much in the past... :-)

Okay, he kinda got a push as the hardcore champ with the “Texas Hardcore Title” that turned him into one of the most annoying babyfaces in the company, and had him working dark matches and Heat tapings for months. If I recall, it was rumored that he was the one who cut Michael Hayes’ ponytail, or something.
For crying out loud, he started coming out to wrestle matches with a COWBELL ON A ROPE. What world do you live on where that could be considered a serious push?
So does anyone have a sense of deja vu about Bradshaw's character i.e. The Million Dollar Man......Bring back Virgil and the million dollar belt an it'l be complete....Mind you I'm not complaining cause I loved that character but it does seem to be rehashed now.
The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.

bradshaw CAN NEVER become the on and only million $ man.boredshaw or bradshit is a waste of time.he doesnt need a push,have him feud with cena and have cena beat the crap outta him,that would be nice to see the clean-cut business man get beat by a jeans and jersey wearing rapper.lol.i think hes trying to be an irwin r.synester and million $ man all in one,if so,BAD CHOICE!!!!
So...Is Bradshaw fueding with Eddy, or the Terryfunkertaker, cause either way its going to suck. I like bradshaw as a tag wrestler, heck, im interested in this new gimmick, i just dont want to see him in such a high profile fued. LEt him job out orlando jordan some...they deserve each other
What are they at now, 14 a year? 12 is a good round number, and I would even go so far as to roll back several (April, September, December) to around $30-$35 to create several tiers of PPVs as well as encouraging buys on a lesser effort.
