I think a lot of people wish Guerrero's death was a work, distasteful as that would've been. Unfortunately, the man is gone. :(

-- There is talk backstage that Dalip "Giant" Singh will be making some sort of appearance at WrestleMania 22, and there is also talk of him doing a program with Matt Hardy at house shows after WretleMania.


For those who don't know, Dalip Singh was on "The Longest Yard"... he's fucking enormous, ugly as hell but absolutely gigantic.

yeah, it's been announced that he's been signed a long time ago. I have a feeling he'll sucked in the ring. Seems like they only signed him for his size.

I'd like to see the big european guy that jerry jarett introduced to vince a while back.

WWE.com has posted an item saying WWE has "broken all professional ties with Marty Jannety".

Jannety was heavily involved in the "Kiss my ass" segment that closed RAW last week. The storyline was that Jannety would have to kiss Vince McMahon's ass to secure a WWE contract.

all it was really was some of his matches...not really a history, or anything at all biographical.

singh-taker, if it happens....well, hegoes from mark henry (not that hes wrestled him (yet) but still...) to him...two great big underskilled overrated lumps of lard. not saying that thats how singhs going to end up...but, thats the way, knowing how the wwe works, that he will end up. i mention the taker-henry feud cause thats what looks like happening....knowing wwe, taker will retire just after having his wrestlemania win streak ended by the worlds sweatiest man, mark henry, at wrestlemania 22.

of course, there's always...how are they going to explain takers retirement? he's been killed several times already, and every time he comes back. he cant die, he has already. he cant get old, hes dead. am i the only one who finds it annoying that wrestlers always have to fake injury to take time off, they cant just say "so-and-so is taking some time off"?

The Singh thing will be interesting... McMahon loves big guys, and Singh is a legit 7'2.. unlike guys like Kane/Taker who are closer to 6'9 but advertised at 7'. I'm interested to see him... then again, Nathan Jones was also huge.

They already admit that Taker's 6'10 actually. Kane's really 7'0 or at least that's what most wrestling sites say.

As for faking an injury to take time off, it was kinda refreshing to see how HHH left by just saying he's pissed at the fans and leaves to prove that the industry needs him. Funnily enough, they cheer him when they come back only to boo him a few weeks after :lol:

Taker is supposed to be arouund 6'10", but I've read that Kane's height is boosted by his boots. In an interview, he stated that the fact he wore extensions before shaving his head was one of the "best kept secrets in the business".

I hope Lance Storm is mistaken, after all that's happened I hope the Hitman does attend the proceedings though there'd be some poetic justice in there if he screwed McMahon by no-showing.

lance storm would be a reliable source. he has said in the latest commentary on his website that he doesnt think bret will show up, and thats why nobody has said he will yet. so vince isnt expecting him to either. if thats the case, although lance could be wrong, he hasnt spoken to bret about it yet. but they know each other well, been to each others houses for visits etc...


and ecw will be having another PPV....called "Another One Night Stand". no word on who's involved as yet, butlance storm has said on his website that he's interested (hes making a ring of honour appearance to wrestle someone for some title, so hell be giving up jericho as his last match anyway), and he would definitely do it if he could wrestle benoit.

I thought his appearance had been confirmed already. They're pushing it a lot which would seem strange if they weren't confident of an appearance, at least at the HOF event before WM22.

Speaking of Lance Storm, he's set to wrestle Brian "The American Dragon" Danielson for the ROH World Title. Danielson or AmDrag is probably one of the best techinical wrestlers in the business today together with Benoit.

Explanation on the Jannety situation

-- Below is Marty Jannetty’s explanation of why he will not be on RAW this coming Monday:

OK, for my fans, family and friends, here is the situation....Due to travel restrictions I have as part of a probation agreement, I was denied travel this week to Birmingham, Alabama for Monday Night Raw. As you could or should imagine, this is a disaster for WWE as they now have to go back and rewrite a major portion of their show in which I was to be included in, and with less than 3 days notice. The fact that this could happen again at any given time my PO decides against me traveling, is good reason for WWE to be concerned in another major disaster especially with WrestleMania coming up. Could you imagine that 2 days before that show I'm told I can NOT go to Chicago. Please understand WWE's position, and believe in them as they have not closed the window of opportunity yet. We are working hard right now on getting all travel restrictions lifted. It is a good possibility that it will happen. If you really care and are concerned, believe me when I say, prayer works and is greatly needed and appreciated right now. I'm getting tons of e-mails from friends and fans hating Vince and the WWE right now. They are not at fault!!! And, they are supporting me on this, so no more hating on them, ok?? I thank all of you for your support, cares and concerns. I love you all!!! I do have a strong gut feeling everything is going to be fine!!!!

Not really, though let's see who represents Smackdown. I think it's going to be weaker than last year, it's the kind of match where you need a few people who are close to or already at main event level. It's a shame Chris Benoit and JBL will be involved in a program, as much as I hated JBL's title reign because I feel he didn't deserve such a push, it has established him as a guy who can be involved in these matches though preferably not winning them. Chris Benoit's involvement is self explanatory.

I have to give the WWE credit for the way they finally remembered/utilised Edge's MITB shot earlier this year. Even though I wanted Cena to make it those few extra days at least and beat JBL's title reign (yes I know, it's not real but it's just sad he's got that long reign when more talented performers never got a chance to run with the ball like that), that was a crafty move that suited his current heel persona.

The other problem with this year's MITB is that Shelton Benjamin is involved. That needn't be a bad thing because he's a fine athlete and talented performer and he's getting better with his character as well but he's once again going into MITB as the IC champ which means once again that belt will not be defended at Wrestlemania. Even if the WWE isn't doing a fantastic job of booking the main events these days they're really struggling to effectively handle the mid and lower card. Perhaps part of the problem is the brand split and all the belts...it's kind of watered down the meaning of the secondary championships.

agreed. they need to at least unify the tag belts. there are at least a couple of decent teams on smackdown, namely mnm, that can give at least some credibility to the tag division. last year neither the tag or us belts were defended at wrestlemania (from memory), so at least that's a step up.

I can't recall a US title defense at WM21 either. It might never happen, but I'd love to see the end of the brand split. I think it's run it's course and it's starting to limit the possibilities for storylines and matches, as well as watering down the individual belts.

yeah. they need to bring back both brands they will have 3 shows RAW,Smackdown and Saturday night main even. they have enough shows to have alot of storylines to have both brands joined together again. half the time wrestlers from Raw are at smackdown backstage and vice versa. why randy orton showed up 2 weeks ago to RKO chavo guerrero.

PLZ JUST END THE BRAND SPLIT. Unify every title make the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE THE MAIN TITLE. just cause it has so much history behind it. if wwe keeps going this way TNA will just get more popular and be the next WCW eventually being bought out in 5 years. lol :cool: then we can have another brand split. and we can see a WWE vs ECW vs TNA PPV.

The WWE title (RAW) actually has the most history. It dates back to the 60s while the World Heavyweight title dates back to 2002, not long after the brand split. I'd prefer it if the WWE title (but get rid of Cena's custom belt, that's run its course) was the lineage they continued.

World Heavyweight title was back in WCW and it goes further back to NWA

WWF History
The WWF got kicked off in the 1960's by Vince MacMahon's father (Vince McMahon Sr.) It is called the WWWF (WorldWide Wrestling Federation), and their style of wrestling is much different than the goofy style of today. There were no weird personalities (clowns, mounties, insane Iraqies, etc.) there were just normal guys in serious matches. But in the early 1980's, the federation was passed on to Vince Jr., and all that changed. He used a style of wrestling that was much more exiting and the WWF became world renound..... when it was started, the basis of it was centered around Hulk Hogan. The match where he faced the champion the Iron Shiek (who was an Olympic champion at the time) was probably the most know match of all-time. Hogan won and held the belt for a LONG time.....a few years...
In 1990 a Southeastern based Organization is formed an joined the National Wrestling Alliance. This Organization is known as World Championship Wrestling.

In 1991, with only several regional branches of the NWA still operating, WCW TV Announcers start to refer to the NWA World Title as the WCW World Title.

On March 21, 1991, Tatsumi Fujinami defeated Ric Flair in Tokyo, to win the NWA World Title. the WCW however disagreed with the NWA and started there own World Title and gave it to Ric Flair. They claimed Tatsumi should have been disqualified. This now made two Recognized World Titles within the NWA.

On May 19th,1991, Ric Flair defeated Tatsumi Fujinami in Florida to unify the two belts.

When Ric Flair joins the WWF on September 8 ane the unified title is stripped from him.

August 12, 1992, Masahiro Chono defeats Rick Rude in tournament to fill the vacant NWA/WCW World Titles. The Titles change hands several times throughout the next 11 Months.

July 18, 1993, Ric Flair after his return to the NWA/WCW defeats Barry Whindam for the NWA/WCW Unified Title.

Later that year in September, WCW withdrew from the NWA on an upcoming Pay- Per-View match between Ric Flair and Rick Rude. The result of this has the NWA no longer recognizing Ric Flair as its champion a. WCW then renames there title the WCW International title. It is then renamed back to the WCW World Title.

In March of 2001, World Wrestling Federation Entertainmen ("WWFE") aquired World Championship Wrestling from AOL/Time Werner, which is where we currently stand.


WCW History
Though The National Wrestling Alliance (which is the father of World Championship Wrestling) name itself did not come into existance untill it was officialy created in 1948. New information has shown that the NWA's roots far surpassed that. All the way to the early 19th Century. Where the first Organizaed Wrestling Organization existed in Lousiana. Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of the United States was one of the earliest champions.

The earliest known Title History of the NWA has been traced to 1877. When on Febuary 7th William Muldoon defeated French Champion, Christol, to win the World Greco-Roman Championship, this earned him the right to be named the World Wrestling Champion. The title chamged hands many times over the next 70 years.

Then on July 14th, in 1947, the National Wrestling Alliance was formed by several Wrestling promoters in North America. Although they run in different territhey all agree to work under the NWA Banner. The first NWA President is announced to be P.L. "Pinkie" George. Orville Brown, the reigning Midwest Wrestling Association World Heavyweight champion, is then known to be the first NWA World champion, as the MWA joines the NWA.

In 1990 a Southeastern based Organization is formed an joined the National Wrestling Alliance. This Organization is known as World Championship Wrestling.

In 1991, with only several regional branches of the NWA still operating, WCW TV Announcers start to refer to the NWA World Title as the WCW World Title.

On March 21, 1991, Tatsumi Fujinami defeated Ric Flair in Tokyo, to win the NWA World Title. the WCW however disagreed with the NWA and started there own World Title and gave it to Ric Flair.

Yes, but the WWE Title is the one with the most lineage within the company it's currently a part of. Also, it would seem that TNA is claiming lineage with the old NWA belt. (Source)

The WWE doesn't even recognise anything before 2002 as far as the Heavyweight title is concerned (Source), although it does bear the design of the old WCW/NWA title. In comparison, the WWE title dates back to the 60s. (Source).

As far as the WWE's concerned, the belt that John Cena holds is the more significant one in the history of the company. The title Angle holds has a much shorter lineage in the WWE (since it doesn't continue on from any NWA/WCW records) and is basically the Triple H World Title.

Yeah i guess that makes alot of sense. WWE just kept the WCW belt but even in WCW it was reannounced as the NWA title im just saying it was the NWA title before WCW and NWA had beef and TNA bought the rights to the NWA title.

Flair is an idiot how many times can someone be striped of the title :mrgreen:

Christian Cage Best NWA champ yet even though he copies alot of what the ROCK did in WWE 8-)

It has the same design but it's basically newly created. Anyway, the main point is the brand split's really run its course. Having two major titles just doesn't work and they both kind of undermine each other.

I think back to the Eddie Guerrero tribute shows and all the inter-brand matches. Obviously I would have rather seen those matches for different reasons but it showed what could be accomplished if they went back to the way things were in the Attitude era. And I know we're supposed to suspend belief when it comes to pro wrestling, but it's just silly how they act as though wrestlers from the other brand shouldn't be there or whatever, yet they're able to come in to their entrance theme...as though they have the magical ability to make it start playing as soon as they enter the arena.

And while I'm ranting about that...as fun as it was to see Shawn Michaels throw what looked like apple juice on the McMahons, wouldn't any normal person have an open and shut lawsuit against the company after that, with video evidence? Wouldn't the cameraman have said something? It's kind of like that whole Batista/Melina thing. There was a camera there! It should be open and shut.

I know, one of those things we're not supposed to think. Right up there with John Cena being arrested for vandalising JBL's limo and getting arrested but when Randy Orton brags about murdering the Undertaker, he's not even questioned. Little bit of an inconsistency in the writing there. They used to be a lot better at avoiding situations like that.

not to mention the fact that he magically appeared in time to take the title from jbl anyway....and when batista smashed all the windows out of jbls limo after triple h faked a run-down, nothing happened to him.

I'd forgotten about that. I suppose there's no point questioning it but it seemed like the writing was much better before the current era. Or maybe I was just younger and less critical.

Just a note for my fellow Aussies with Foxtel: not only are RAW, Smackdown, Velocity, Heat and Experience being shown at their usual times on Main Event free-for-all (digital channel 955), Saturday Night's Main Event will also be shown on Monday free of charge.

After the Simpsons marathon finishes...so if that's the 27th, then yes, the 27th. ;)

It's all on 955 (46 analogue) at the moment. Smackdown! wasn't on today though in its usual repeat slot since there was a boxing event.

Just caught Saturday Night's Main Event. Pretty good show I have to say. Those reports that some people were concerned about JR doing commentary and showing up Joey Styles - with all due respect to Styles - were pretty much on the mark. He hasn't been on TV in months, he comes straight in and he's as good as ever. Great to hear him calling the action again. It's a shame he won't be doing it fulltime, I'm hoping he'll be involved with Wrestlemania perhaps calling the main events at the very least.

I watched some of the main event, the match at the start was alright, just some massive orgy. And the beer comp stunt was (N) and Edge getting chairmoled or whatever it was called was :headbang:

I missed the street fight though :cry: Who won?

The "hey" one is more recognizable anyway, they should go with how they did kane's, benoit's and edge's change in music. Have the same intro with a different song mixed in.

Finishing up watching the first disc of Bloodsport: ECW's most violent matches. Just finished downloading Impact and SNME. Have to watch it later.

SNME was pretty good everyone knew orton would turn on angle and rey same for HHH hitting the pedigree on Cena the ending was a decent. Orton is your next Champ looks like they are really pushing him.

I'm not certain about the outcome of the main events at WM. I have a feeling Cena's going to retain the title but with his iffy crowd reaction and HHH's backstage influence I'm not totally sold on that. It would seem that the feud will continue past WM so the title may well trade hands a couple of times.

As far as the world title is concerned...I really can't predict it. As you say they're pushing Randy Orton but there'd be a great underdog story if Mysterio was to win it as well. And on top of that, it would make a lot of sense for Angle to retain since he's overdue for another long title reign and he's been pushed as a strong champion since winning the title in the wake of Batista's injury.

WM is shaping up quite nicely, even the Mickie James heel turn. The women's matches haven't been too bad at all lately. Usually it's just been T&A but lately they've actually done a decent job of writing and the matches have been above average, making it entertaining from a wrestling standpoint as well as pleasing to the eye.

I'm not sold on the Taker/Henry match though. I'm a Taker fan and upon reading this might be his last WM, I had hoped for a more talented opponent. I really hope they don't put Mark Henry over here. I know they invested a lot of money in him but he's disappointed them almost every time. Why let Taker go out on a bad note in their last ditch attempt to make the World's Sweatiest Man (yes, I stole that one) seem worthy of a push?

I'm also not too keen on HBK/Vince. I thought when Bischoff was outed as part of his vacation to end his WWE tenure, we'd actually get another GM. Instead it's just been Vince, which again doesn't make much sense as far as the brand split since technically anything Vince says would override Teddy Long. It's also sad to see HBK job week after week. I wonder how many other main eventers would be doing what he's doing right now.

I would've much preferred HBK/Taker at WM this year. If the brief feud with Angle achieved nothing else, it showed that Taker still has something left in the tank and with a talented worker like an Angle (or HBK) is capable of having a really good match. Two potentially lousy matches could have been avoided and a really good one made instead. The original HIAC with Taker/HBK is considered a classic. They don't have to do that again but that doesn't mean it couldn't be great.

That was possibly the gayest thing ever. That was so fake, and really bad, not even good acting, me and my friend were about to cry from laughing. "C'mon Shane, your a McMahon" :lol: And the ending was so retarted, something big has to happen at Wrestlemania.

i can't believe they're wasting HBK's talent by pairing him up with vince. what a crock of shit. i would've rather seen him in that money in the bank match, or an interpromotional match versus the undertaker (and subsequently end his streak). HBK will deliver the goods though, he's never disappointed in a wrestlemania match, not even with a really bad back.

Oh yeah, I've read the spoiler a while back. Although the guy in the poster doesn't have the title I think. But then I just read about the transcript of the Backlash video ad. It's really confirmed that the guy in the poster wins.

HBK is taking a "Vacation" after WrestleMania and will be gone for a Good Amount of time. Vince Will Screw HBK and Cena at WM and the Corporation will be born again. (Y)

I saw that before, and the transcript of the ad. I really hope it's a swerve but it probably won't be. Still, I won't be completely sold until I see it. The creative team may not be as good as they used to be but they still have their moments.
