They do a Money in the Bank PPV, a Hell in a Cell PPV and an Elimination Chamber PPV?

Yes and a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Pay-Per-View. I'm not really sure what they were trying to accomplish. They got rid of King of the Ring, they got rid of Survivor Series (or wanted to) but they keep making gimmick shows, so I'm not sure what the point is.

They still do MITB ? Seriously ? *yawn already*



People have turned on MITB already? Seriously? It's usually one of the best matches on the card, the only downside has been how they've kind of booked themselves into a corner with the winner getting the title every time, so it's going to end up like the Rumble where only certain guys logically can win it.

I wished it would've gone away two years ago. You either end up repeating the same match over and over or you do increasingly dangerous spots that endanger the health of your workers. Even good spotfests get old after awhile.

That Wrestlemania update article makes me angry because it refers to movie characters as heel and face.

Yeah, I know that was naughty of me, but I did it because of the stories that Johnson wanted to promote the movie like a dream wrestling match: Rock vs. Vin Diesel. :)

God I hope it isn't HHH v. Taker.


Small price to pay if it's the end of his wrestling career.


I always thought I would be excited for this day too, but he can do a lot more damage running the company than he can as a wrestler. I'm really scared of Vince retiring with this succession plan in place. But I don't know what Vince could possibly do with his free time if he retires, seems like he would go nuts.

Except apparently HHH is the guy behind the pushes for ADR, Ziggler, Miz, Barrett, etc...go figure, right?

Way to make these gimmick matches not special at all.

But Vince is already nuts! ;) I honestly don't know whether Vince's negatives outweigh his positives at this point and him having less input wouldn't be a bad thing. Apparently the few TV tapings Hunter has run were a much less stressful environment to work in. He certainly has more appreciation of the history of the business than the alternatives who could have come to power. I think it's also a good sign that he's willing to step aside from his wrestling career, unlike so many other bookers/owners who clung on for far too long.

WWE Hall of Fame announcer Jerry Lawler's mother, Hazel Lawler, died on Sunday evening. She had suffered from Alzheimer's disease for the past six years and her condition began to rapidly decline over the past month.

Funeral arrangements will be made today for a ceremony scheduled for Wednesday at Family Funeral Care in Memphis located at 4923 Summer Avenue.

Lawler is scheduled to be in Anaheim, Calif. on Monday for the live Raw TV taping leading to Sunday's Elimination Chamber PPV. Lawler will be challenging WWE champion The Miz for the WWE Title at the PPV.


Poor Jerry :(

Where is this info from? That's the first I've heard of it.

Alberto was pushed because they need a new star for the Hispanic audience since they don't think Rey (or his knees) are too long for the WWE Universe.

Also, he's pushed because Rey is difficult to work with (complaining about pay, refusing to do jobs, wanting more time off) and they want to replace him as the top Hispanic star with someone who'll be easier for them to handle.

Apparently, Rey vetoed losing the IC title to Dolph Ziggler, but that was after WWE promised him a long reign with the IC title. Shortly after, he was suspended for a Wellness violation.

I wasn't sure that's what he was saying -- he made that remark about how he'll see Cena -- and then sort of backpedaled and said, "just like I'll see everyone else"

Though who knows.

Certainly teasing Cena-Rock and not delivering would be a bunch of crap, but I don't see it happening. Dave made a comment on Saturday's Observer Radio that Michael Cole's match would be the most important on the show --which seemed ridiculous to me because how could Lawler vs Cole be a main event-- but if he means Rock vs Cole, then I understand. Sort of.
