Let's rattle off the superstars appearing on the WM25 graphic available at scifi.com/ecw, starting at the top and going clockwise:
Undertaker -> will face Michaels Edge -> will face Big Show John Cena MVP JBL Big Show -> will face Edge Randy Orton -> will face HHH Rey Mysterio Steve Austin -> presumably something "special" so we'll count him covered Kane -> in MitB Shawn Michaels -> will face 'taker Mark Henry -> in MitB Chris Jericho CM Punk -> in MitB R-Truth Jeff Hardy Triple H -> will face Orton
Let's assume Jericho is covered even though we don't have a match for him yet (and some of you need to stop speculating because it's starting to look like the dreaded fantasy booking).
We have six names remaining.
Let's also assume Cena ends up in the Edge/Show picture just for grins.
Hey, five names left! Coincidence? OR the announced-some-time-in-the-next-month remaining Money in the Bank participants?
Coincidence, probably. But still...*kinda* interesting!
(Sixteen of these same folks are on the WM Wallpaper (wwe.com), with Austin out and Cena in his bottom centre spot)
How come there's no Matt Hardy on that poster? Judging by current storylines, he's likely to play a big part in the card.
Forfeit the game, before somebody else takes you outta the game, and puts your name to shame Cover up your face, you can't run the race The pace is too fast, you just won't last - "Points Of Authority" - Linkin Park
I think it's safe to write Jeff out of MITB-the Hardy Vs Hardy match is surely a foregone conclusion. Kennedy's more likely to return in the draft, I think. Bourne would seem like a no-brainer, but he might not be a big enough name given how crowded the potentials list is.
After reading the next two weeks worth of spoilers, I can tell you that that poster doesn't have all the participants. I won't say anything else about it, but the fact that Mark Henry and not Santino is in this thing makes me think that MITB has offically jumped the shark.
Originally posted by AlexMark Henry is AWESOME but I don't know if he's the right kind of person to be in a ladder match. My guess is he and Kane are there to catch people jumping off ladders.
I think it would be a nice change-of-pace to have a few heavyweights in the ladder match. Most others have been mid-sized guys with maybe Kane being the only larger heavyweight to be in the match.
If he and another big guy like Henry were in the match, it would make for good drama to have the two ascend the ladder at the same time. Of course I'd hate to be the guy standing in the ring when he or Umaga came tumbling down.
Yeah, I mean Lashley was big and really green when he was in the match and they worked around him with only five other guys. Granted, Santino could've been scared of climbing and run away and stuff and I'm sure that would've been entertaining too. But they book these matches so intricately that guys are only put in position to do cool things.
That's a fair point, but if things are that bad they might have to shut down everyone who was on the SD roster at some point. There has to be some way to increase the roster depth and star power of the SD brand without creating a health danger.
