Brock Vs. Kurt Vs. Show - What I'd like to see: Big Show - My prediction: Kurt with the Armageddon finish everyone else sees too.
It doesn't matter to me who wins this, I love to see either one of these guys victorious, so let them do what they want, I will be happy.
Vince Vs. Zach - What I'd like to see: Vince - My prediction: Zach
Okay, who the hell thinks Vince will win? Do you ever remember Vince winning a PPV match? The only one I remember is the Royal Rumble 99. Getting over Vince is just supposed to give a rub for the guy who defeats him, as he beat the owner of the company. No chance for Vince.....
Taker Vs. Cena - What I'd like to see: Cena - My prediction: Taker
Taker. No way for Cena to beat the Underseller.
Stephanie Vs. Sable - What I'd like to see: Steph - My prediction: Steph
No comment on this one.
United States Champioship Finals - What I'd like to see: either guy - My prediction: Eddie
Now this is something I have a problem with, simply because I set too much expectations in it. I can only be disappointed. But whoever wins, it will rule. Most likely Eddie, and they rarely give Benoit the chance to shine when the time has come.
Gunn Vs. Noble - What I'd like to see: Noble - My prediction: Gunn
They didn't give up on Billy for 10 years, like they would start now.
WWE Tag Team Championship - What I'd like to see: Haas & Benjamin - My prediction: Haas & Benjamin
It's too obvious.
APA invitational I have no clue what this is about.......
Brock vs. Show vs. Angle: Winner: Brock via pinning Angle. This sets up his heel turn and Angle/Brock II at Summerslam.
Vince vs. Zach: Winner: Zach via the moonsault Please, God, just END this storyline.
Cena vs. Undertaker: Winner: Undertaker via Last Ride, clean and easy. Cena has to return that "job" Taker did for him a few week before Backlash. Yep, can't have some young punk getting over on Taker's watch, no siree. But hey, maybe he'll get a handshake!
Stephanie vs. Sable: Winner: Stephanie, via ripping off Sable's top. Again, I plead with the almighty, end this godawful storyline. The only way that this match is not going to suck big ones is if Patterson plots it out like a fucking Rube Goldberg experiment.
Eddie vs. Benoit: Winner: Eddie via wacky Latino chicanery. It's win/win for me here, and this should be match of the night and a match of the year candidate to boot. I'm hoping they do the double turn here (Eddie face and Benoit heel) and just give up on trying to get the fans to boo Eddie.
Noble vs. Gunn: Winner: Noble via some Mouse Trapô set of heelish circumstances after Gunn dominates the match. They didn't hype the "Torrie Whoring Herself" segment on Smackdown next week for nothing.
Rey/Kidman vs. TWGTT: Winner: TWGTT via Kidman's or Rey's mistake I was hoping they'd do Ultimo Dragon vs. Rey at Summerslam, but this tag-team mini-storyline is clearly designed for Kidman to turn and fight the evils of San Diegans. Should be good-excellent if all guys are firing on the same cylinders.
APA Invitational: Winner: Me, for preparing dinner during this segment and thus missing it entirely.
I know that it's been longer, but I think that the frustrations with the product began in earnest, and was more widespread, starting with the 18 second defeat of Bryan at Wrestlemania. It reached it's apex at Batista's Rumble.
