@oldirtybearon: Yes, them, Fandango and Summer Rae were taken by chopper from the house show to Raw. So guys could pull double duty for two different shows.

Also, Cena vs. Ryback is the announced main event for Raw.

@damswedon: So did Maxine become Dirty Curty?

@oldirtybearon: WWE aren't the victims with the Network deal in Canada. They willingly accepted that Rogers gives them a boatload of money so that Rogers would have exclusive access to it (Vince basically admitted it in the conference call where the Canada deal was announced).

Also, Reddit did some digging and they were told that the issue was from a third party unrelated to Sky blocking it (and it will not be a Sky channel). Basically, we're back to square one with this stuff.

As a funny aside, fearful of the reaction regarding the Network, they tapped up the WWE Network apron to remove the word Network (so it's just got a WWE logo on the left side with nothing else on it). Also, they aired an apology from Vince McMahon (slightly edited version found here) that was booed to shit and led to one match getting drowned in "We want Network" chants. I really hope they don't have time to edit Raw this week.

Well that was weird, on Smackdown they did a segment where The Exotic Express were trick or treating backstage and met R-Truth (disguised as a sheet ghost), who proceeded to basically bury Adam Rose, saying that the bunny was upstaging him and that no one care about Rose, just the bunny. Rose tried to brush it off, that they're communists they're all equals, but Truth kept pushing it until he just stopped, gave out candy to the Rosebuds and gave to Rose a rock.

@turboman: Now, this could be some hot BS to prevent the stock from falling, but they announced to their shareholders the last time they put out a number that they managed to restructure the company in a way that, by 2015, 500k would be the break point and not a million.

The two thoughts I had after the main event were:

1) Holy shit, they just redid the original Hell in a Cell match.

2) Holy shit, this seems like exactly what happened with Daniel Bryan last year.

So 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.

A couple of notes from the Smackdown 15th Anniversary show:

- The Royal Rumble will be in Philadelphia in 2015 and, according to people who were there when they announced the show, it will be the second 40 Man Royal Rumble.

Now into spoilery stuff:

- Both Teddy Long and BIG JOHNNY returned and feuded over who was the greatest Smackdown GM. This culminated in Teddy making a 15 man Tag Team Match to declare the best (Yes, 15 divided by 2 is 7.5 and, yes, midgets are considered half a person). Team Teddy (Sheamus, Mark Henry, The Usos, Los Matadores, El Torito, and Jack Swagger) won against Team Johnny (Goldust, Stardust, Heath Slater, Titus O' Neil, Damien Mizdow, Bo Dallas, Cesaro, and Mini Gator aka Hornswoggle).

- The Rock was on the show in a backstage pre-tape with Triple H and Stephanie. They teased tension between the both of them and Rock teased the idea of Rock/Triple H. Stephanie defused the situation by saying that they should go get something to eat.

- Kane squashed Adam Rose, ending his winning streak. He then killed the rest of the Exotic Express sans The Bunny.

- Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble were in Seth Rollins' corner for his match.

- The stipulation for Cena/Ambrose at Hell in a Cell is a No Holds Barred Contract on a Pole Match.

Is Russo back?
