Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Ah, well.

I would imagine WWE is paying him a pretty hefty sum, and I don't think they'd want to have to shell out more.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I'm pretty sure it's at least two appearances every month, with space for more.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

The status of Brock's contract has been posted in the thread before. It's basically one year (until 29 I believe) and as mentioned two appearances every month plus promos I think...I also think it covers one PPV each month. The two appearances might be reduced to just Raw (which is why they did the stupid Brock wanting to take over Raw segment with Big Johnny). I was finally happy to see Triple H back to assert his authority as COO. Trips/Brock should be interesting if that is where they are going and Bryan/Punk should be awesome!

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I like that Paul Heyman is back as an onscreen character, since this role is where he excels in the wrestling business, despite what the IWC will tell you.

The guy can still cut a promo and his presence in WWE will lead to a generous enhancement of Brock Lesnar's current storyline with Triple H.

I've always thought of him as a fantastic booker, but on who definitely needs someone else to reign him in. Regardless I'm really happy to see him back on TV. A guy like him can always bring something to the table.

I've started writing for Bleacher Report. Naturally I'm filled with great pride.

Here's my first article:

It's about Rylump.

Good article with many a salient point.

I wrote for them several years ago, perhaps when I had something relevant to say on the subjects of the Intercontinental and US Championships.

I lost interest after writing three articles.

Good article. It's definitely a step above some of the crap I've seen on Bleacher Report (likea recent article written as if Big Show's firing by Johnny Ace was real...the author gave absolutely no indication he thought it was fake and actually got comments from others who thought it was real too ).

Cheers guys. See, I read the site occasionally and thought "I can do better than this" so finally got around to it. Summink to do, innit. I can claim to be a writer anyway.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Surprised no one's mentioned the news of RAW expanding to 3 hours permanently in July.

It's not quite comparable to Nitro going to 3 hours since WCW had all sorts of issues of its own that caused their product to be complete shit (wrestlers with full creative control, Bischoff, Russo et al.). Personally I think this is a horrible idea considering the WWE has a hard enough time filling up a 2 hour RAW without resorting to crappy skits and garbage filler matches no one cares about.

I'd like a Dolph Ziggler vs Cody Rhodes Iron Man Match for the IC title. If we get that then I approve.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Huzzah, another PPV.

Kane vs Ryder
Who I want to win: Kane
Who I think will win: Kane
Kane relegated to the preshow? Against a man he's frequently squashed since his masked return? Sake.

Beth vs Layla
Who I think will win: Beth
Who I want to win: Layla
Oh.

R-Truth and Kofi vs Ziggler and Swagger
Who I think will win: K&R
Who I want to win: Z&S
Are Truth and Kofi a team because they're both black? Is that why? That's the logic isn't it. Shame on you WWE. Anyway, 4 great wrestlers in here. Of course, Ziggler's the best wrestler probably ever, so I want him to win.

Sheamus vs Orton vs Del Rio vs Jericho
Who I think will win: Sheamus
Who I want to win: Jericho
You can bet Del Rio won't win, that's for sure, considering it was originally going to be him and Sheamus. Jericho's good, I want him to win. Not much more to say than that.

Punk vs Bryan
Who I think will win: Punk
Who I want to win: Bryan
At least we should be damn near guaranteed a good match. Bryan winning would be a good move, considering how over he is. It'd be interesting to see how far they can go with him. More likely they'll play it safe and go with Punk though.

Ace vs Cena
Who I think will win: Cena
Who I want to win: Ace
Considering how explicitly they've painted themselves into a corner, either there's gonna be some big swerve or this is it for King Laurinaitis.

Not really much to say clearly. Just can't get excited over it.

Great stuff!

So I think in honour of this, I'll go with Ghost Bones' format for my PPV predictions...

Kane vs. Zack Ryder
Who I think will win: Kane
Who I want to win: Zack Ryder
- I think they were really getting somewhere with Ryder, but alas WWE will abort pushes randomly for various reasons (often one's that don't seem just).

Beth Phoenix vs. Layla
Who I think will win: Layla
Who I want to win: Layla
- I'm thinking we might get the return of Kharma tonight following the conclusion (or during, in which this could be a double DQ) to set up a new feud or two.

R- Truth and Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger
Who I think will win: R- Truth and Kofi Kingston
Who I want to win: R- Truth and Kofi Kingston
- I'd imagine that this is one of these throwaway PPV matches that is designed to add credibility to the new champs.

Sheamus vs. Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Chris Jericho
Who I think will win: Sheamus
Who I want to win: Randy Orton
- I think WWE is looking at turning Orton heel again, given that he is in danger of gathering dust at his current stage. However, I also think that WWE really wants to continue with Sheamus' push because he's a big guy that is capable of working to a pretty high standard, who is still young and in his prime - If they don't build him up, then gasp! It falls to the likes of Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes and Dolph Ziggler to be the top guys and we can't have a WWE without tall, muscular men!

CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan
Who I think will win: CM Punk
Who I want to win: CM Punk
- I think it would be cool for Daniel Bryan to win, but by doing this they will be giving away their pay off way too early. I look for this feud to continue up until MITB at least.

John Laurinaitis vs. John Cena
Who I think will win: John Laurinaitis
Who I want to win: John Laurinaitis
- I think they've essentially given this match result away by "firing" Big Show and then declaring that should any "contracted" superstar interfere that they will be fired. I'm thinking Show will interfere and cost Cena the match and explain it away as doing what he needed to get his job back.
