these are the earliest spoilers i've found thru 411 which they got via the Observer:
Ian Harrison (XWF) & Travis ??? b Norman Smiley & Billy Fives (IPW) Ultimo Dragon b Jamie Noble
Spanky b Chad Collyer Orlando Jordan b Shannon Moore Bill DeMott b Kanyon Rikishi b Crash
Rey Mysterio b Matt Hardy Billy Gunn b A-Train Undertaker b Johnny Stamboli Basham Brothers b Benoit & Rhyno John Cena b Funaki Brock vs. Big Show ended after Brock gave Big Show a superplex off the top and the entire ring imploded. It was absolutely insane and received a 10 minute holy shit chant. The corner posts all shot out and the ring fell straight to the floor.
I seriously hope Show is ok. And my guess is, they couldn't "gimmick" the ring to have a hole since to do that, they loosen the boards under and i'm sure it would've easily gave even without these two taking a bump on the weak area. Their combined weight alone would probably have it collapse easily.

Maybe Paul Heyman has some influence after all. This reeks of Bam Bam and Tazz.
But damn if it didn't get ME pumped! Looks like I'll be watching! :D
What is Mattitude? Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.
Well I guess it could be that the force from 800 lbs near-simultaneously slamming into a smaller area of the mat from up high could have a greater effect than 10 guys just standing around with their weight more distributed.
A few years ago on RAW, one set of turnbuckles came off during an Outlaws/Acolytes match. Although I can't imagine the whole ring being that shoddily put together.

I only just now got home from a LOOOOONG night that did, in fact, include catching the PPV. And my initial impressions have this as one of my top 3 PPV's of the year so far, behind Extreme Rules and Wrestlemania.
