A late Merry Christmas to all the posters on The W.

I'm weighing up whether it's worth bidding for some WM23 tickets on Ebay but I've got no idea what the lineup may include/what the WWE is building up to. A few friends have suggested Taker/Batista as a possibility. Could anyone hit me with a few of their thoughts?....

Could anyone also make any hotel recommendations that are in the area of the WM arena? I'm from England so I "ain't the foggiest".....

A lot of folks have been saying that Hogan/Big Show seems inevitable if the Big Show is at all able to work. I would assume an ECW title match of some sort involving some combination of Lashley/RVD/Punk/Test/Holly. It seems like they might be building to a Cena/HHH rematch.

*pukes*

Give me Umaga crushing Cena like a bug at NYR and a build to a huge, Andre/Hogan-ish Umaga/Cena WM rematch over a Cena/HHH rematch any day. And I don't even like Umaga that much.

They need to turn RVD heel if they're going to do a Lashley/RVD ECW title match at WM. I don't see that happening since Paul E. wanted to turn RVD and Vince shot it down. At this point, Punk needs to be the guy, and needs to win. (Holly? Test? Don't make me laugh.)

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Vince shot a Lashley turn down recently, not a van Dam one.

Foley/Vince seems like a possibility, although there was a tidbit in a recent Observer about Hogan/Show being changed to a Hogan/Vince Vs. Show/Bischoff match, to boost its historical appeal. Foley/Shane was mooted as a replacement match, but given the circumstances of Mick's last appearance I'd much rather see Foley Vs. Nitro.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends.

Big Show's got a bad back, and probably bad knees. I'm sure you've noticed how his gut has gotten huge (even bigger than usual) over the last 4/5 months or so. He's either (based on who/what you want to believe): a) too hurt to work out, or b) too lazy to work out, which means he gets fat, which gives him the bad back/knees, which makes him not want to work out.

He's said he'd work Wrestlemania against Hogan, but other than that, he's pretty much done.

How about something like Foley/Carlito/Torrie against all three of MNM? That sews up Foley's feud with Melina, gives Carlito a good match for Wrestlemania and gives him some rub as well.

Cena/HHH would be ridiculous. Who wants to see that match again? Given that the brand extension seems to be dying a slow death anyway, why not unify the world titles and make it Cena against Batista? If HHH is still whining about being in a big WM match, make it DX against the Brothers of Destruction and them prop up UT's streak.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Here are some WM23 ideas I wrote about recently. Probably not the most realistic of lineups, but not completely impossible, either.

I still think HHH will be in the main event, and if so, I hope it is at least against Edge. It is a fresh match up, and it already has some good build. Throw in HBK vs. Orton to blow off the whole DX/Rated RKO feud all together.

Batista vs. Taker on the other side still seems like the best bet.

If he is back in time, I wouldn't mind a Rey - Benoit match, maybe somehow coming out of the feud with Chavo?

Foley vs. Nitro is the best scenario for Mick, if they choose to acknowledge how he left a few months back. Anything to keep Vince out of the mix, even if I would rather see a MNM vs. Hardyz and/or TWGTT.

I hadn't thought of the Foley vs. Nitro match. A solid performance against Mick could really push Nitro to another level.

As far as a match for the WWE title, there is nothing I've seen that interests me ... Cena vs. Edge is played out ... Cena vs. Triple H was last year ... Cena vs. Orton could be the most boring match ever ...

Cena versus HHH, with Cena turned heel, would be an incredibly hot match and would probably draw very well.

I agree, a Cena heel turn would be perfect. He definitely has the justification, due to the fans booing him for the last year.

Now that his movie is out of the way, they won't have to cram him down our throat as a face. But if you turn the fans loose on him, and actually ASK them to boo him, it could be like Rocky Maivia all over again. They have been wanting to anyway.

It would actually make me interested in him, something that has not happened in about 2 years. Just don't stick him with K-Fed as his sidekick. Bring back Bling Bling Buchanan!

Here are the top three matches I'd like to see.

HHH vs. Edge for the World Title
Orton has to cost Cena the title sometime soon, who better to benefit than his partner Edge. Edge is such a strong heel right now, I'd be digging it the most.

Orton vs. Cena grudge
Orton has to pay for costing Cena the title.

HBK vs. Batista for the WWE Championship
I think HBK would do well on Smackdown! I don't think it's ever gonna happen because he doesn't want to leave his buddy HHH. But he would definately freshen up the brand and get the kind of run that he's earned the past few years. Also, I like the matchups that it present with him as champ. Against Benoit, Finlay, Hardy, Booker. It could be good.

I could not agree with you less on that last one. There is no way that HBK should be champ. I say keep him out of the title hunt and leave that to the younger guys. Michaels' main value right now is to give "the rub" to younger guys, e.g. Edge and Orton. So not only is his rub wasted on Batista who is NOT young and probably doesn't have that many matches left in him, but he'd be taking away a spot that a younger star with more of a future should have.

I guess I understand your argument that he should stay on RAW for the sake of putting over the younger guys on that brand. But him not being champion on Smackdown? In lieu of whom, 40-year-old unmotivated Batista? Booker T, who has been there and done that? Finlay? The Undertaker? I mean, I guess you could argue that Kennedy could have a decent run with the title, but he's nowhere near that yet and a world title run for him is realistically a year or so off. I only use him as an example because he's the only young guy I see on Smackdown who's anywhere near being groomed for a big main-event spot. I don't see anything wrong at all with putting Michaels on Smackdown and making him champ, at least temporarily. It'd provide for great television and great matches.

Also, Orton and Edge don't need the rub from him. ESPECIALLY not Edge, who had a banner year that more or less penciled him in as a consistent main-eventer for years. I think throwing Michaels on Smackdown after the DX thing has run its course (in Vince's mind as in the minds of the fans it already has) is an excellent idea.

That being said, I sincerely doubt that will happen.
