I did one of these last year and it was fun so here we go again. Your picks are very welcome.
Firt off, whats the match order gonna be and what star rating would you predict? My pick: (not including Battle Royal) Eddie/Rey***1/2 Sumo Match1/2* Money in the bank*** Womens title1/2* Angle v HBK**** Piper's Pit WWE title**1/2 Undertaker v Orton**1/2 World title***
Match of the night: Angle/HBK
I decided to put Orton/Taker just before ME so Angle/HBK wouldnt take away from the ME.
What do you think the buy rate will be. I predict a high one but not to surpass last year. About 750,000.
I' hoping the crowd will be good this year, it will take alot to surpass MSG, but the crtowd was pretty hot for Judgment Day. I predict the Hall of Fame crowd just to stand on the stage and wave like last year. They must do some backstage skits with afew of them, if not all. I am really looking forward to the show and ALL the matches, Sumo, bring it on, Women, bring it on, its freakin Mania afterall.

Mike Johnson at PWInsider has reported that Diamond Dallas Page is gone from TNA. Though DDP was over with the Orlando crowd, I give TNA kudos for the stance here. Monty is gonna be one of your top 3 guys (along w/ Styles & Daniels)
