Potential Smackdown spoilers: Take this with a grain of salt, but The Headbangers have said on Facebook that they will return to WWE on Tuesday's Smackdown, presumably to face the team of Slater and Rhyno.

Like, I would have never guessed them in a million years, but they really don't make sense with the whole "New Era" thing.

Two things:

1) Congratulations Dan Ryckert on being featured on Raw.

2) This might be the most random picture I've ever seen:

Here are the official rules:

  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Simply predict the answers to each question and, for every correct one, you get a point (unless stated otherwise); you don't lose anything for getting it wrong.
  • You do not have to bet on every match and you don't have to answer every question.
  • Whoever is in #1 after the PPV is allowed to have the Championship belt in their avatar.
  • If your prediction post is edited after the PPV, then you are disqualified for the event.
  • You must have your predictions in before the PPV/Pre-Show begins.
  • If the match ends in a draw (if Mark Henry suplexes The Big Show and the ring implodes, etc.), the prediction is cancelled and no points will be awarded/taken away.
  • Your final total (i.e. the one that will appear in the rankings) is the sum of all your PPV predictions subtracted by the lowest PPV prediction total. E.g. say I've done 3 PPVs (with scores of 30, 25 and 40), the score that would appear in the rankings is 30 + 40 = 70. If I were to participate in a fourth PPV (and I got a score of 20), then my new total would be 25 + 30 + 40 = 95.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.

So is the women's tag match off, or will the faces have to give someone up.. or will they call up Peyton Royce or something?

It's currently the rare (because it's stupid) 3-faces-on-2-heels handicap match unless the heels can find a new partner.

NXT Takeover tickets are as cheap as $11 with floor seats below $100. I am seriously considering taking an 8 hour car trip to watch it live.

I wonder how down that is from this time last year.

For the record, the show is sold out (as was last year's show) and sold out in like an hour. However, since this is 2016, most of the tickets were bought by scalping robots and the scalpers have been unable to sell them at high prices so they're selling them dirt cheap to at least make some money back. While I think that most of those tickets will move at the last minute, WWE could be faced with the awkward situation of being sold out, but still having a lot of empty seats.

I remember someone wondering what happened to that Surf's Up/WWE movie, well here you go:

Ha, the WWE-sponsored Flo Rida concert next Thursday at Barclays to promote Summerslam was cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

Considering that it was a charity gig, it might not be the nicest thing to laugh at it getting canceled.

So, I'm going to be that guy, but what the hell was so special about Ishii/Okada? It was a good match, but the love it's getting is kind of much.

Those two are both incredible in the ring. I'm just curious how they peel away from this story-line without making Kevin Owens look weak. That' the downside of leaving them on the same brand.

The GMs force a KO/Zayn tag team run?

@hadoken101: To be fair, the only cruiserweights that are on Smackdown are Kalisto and Chad Gable. So I expect guys like Tajiri to return to Raw to give the Cruiserweight division any sort of depth.
