Wrestling Observer is saying that Rock's not there because of an injury he suffered during his match last night.

@jadegl: I'm going to go with either him not feeling the Lesnar feud or him not liking the way he had to put over Cena (with the whole passing of the torch thing).

Also, one of the reports online is saying that there was talk of burying The Rock on air tonight. I already have the feeling that this is going to be a fun night.

John Cena's new Belt:

One side is the OK hand gesture, the other is the U Can't See Me logo.

LoC time (13175 points):

  • Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs The Miz - Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship: 1000 points on The Miz - win or lose, both Barrett and Miz are going to be fine in the long run, so I see the face winning to set the mood for the night.
  • Tons of Funk and The Funkadactyls vs Team Rhodes Scholars and The Bella Twins - Eight Person Mixed Tag Team Match: 500 points on Team Funk - Maybe this is like last year's big tag match and the heels win, but I think this is just going to be a 10~15 minute cool down between two of the main event matches.
  • Chris Jericho vs Fandango - Singles Match: 675 points on Fandango - Vince fucking loves Fandango and Jericho's leaving soon, so I don't see why Jericho's going to win. On the flip side, I still remember Summerslam 2012 where everyone was saying that Ziggler would beat Jericho only for the exact opposite to happen.
  • WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No vs Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston - Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship: 1000 points on Team Hell No - There are more heel tag teams than face teams, Ziggler's not going to be a double champion if he cashes in, Ziggler could pull an Edge and cost the match early to get ready for a cash in, Reverse Momentum Theory says that Hell No are winning, Big E can still be a monster even if his team loses, etc. I know people are getting tired of Team Hell No, but I don't think the odd couple's reign ends here. Also, I could see Kaitlyn running down to prevent an AJ interference, setting up a title match at Extreme Rules or the night after.
  • Ryback vs Mark Henry - Singles Match: 1500 points on Ryback - Ryback needs a win and Henry is like Jericho in that he could lose and still be a threat.
  • Randy Orton, Sheamus and Big Show vs The Shield - Six Man Tag Team Match: 1000 points on The Shield - The Voice of Reason (Randy Orton) loses and then snaps at some point (either tonight or later).
  • World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger - Singles Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: 2500 Points on Alberto Del Rio - Seven weeks was WAY too long for this feud and I'm dreading six more weeks of this for Extreme Rules (and let's hope that, if this feud continues, Ziggler gets the title and feuds with someone else).
  • Triple H vs Brock Lesnar - No Holds Barred Match; If Lesnar Wins, Triple H Must Retire: 1000 points on Triple H - The Ass-Kicker gets his win back and Brock goes away again.
  • The Undertaker vs CM Punk - Singles Match: 2500 Points on The Undertaker - Some of you guys are really funny with your bets on Punk. The Streak's not ending, ever. And if it was, they wouldn't have built an entire story about Taker getting his revenge.
  • WWE Champion The Rock vs John Cena - Singles Match for the WWE Championship: 1500 points on John Cena - Cena, Redemption, I don't really care. I'd love to see something new from Cena, but I doubt we'll actually get that.

So, RVD's contract with TNA recently expired (which is why he dropped the X Division title about a week before Lockdown) and he's back to being a free agent. With his new status, he showed up on a Podcast/Radio show and said that he plans on returning soon to either TNA or WWE. Also, RVD is at the Hall of Fame tonight to be there to see his friend Booker T get inducted. The part that gets a bit weird is that this article just got posted on WWE.com:

NEW YORK CITY — There was an unexpected face among the WWE Superstars and Legends who filed into Madison Square Garden on Saturday night for the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

Rob Van Dam, the former WWE Champion and ECW icon, was one of the many sports-entertainment luminaries in attendance. Not seen in a WWE ring since the 2009 Royal Rumble Match, Mr. Money in the Bank remains a favorite of those WWE fans who have seen the aerialist — and his jaw-dropping Five-Star Frog Splash — in action.

“I’m here to support my boy Booker T,” said Van Dam, who added he’d known the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee for some time around 10 years. They also had a memorable run as a tag team when they were in WWE together.

“[It’s great] seeing a lot of guys I haven’t seen since I left,” said the longtime veteran, who memorably won the WWE Championship from John Cena in the rowdy Hammerstein Ballroom at ECW One Night Stand 2006

After some time away from WWE, RVD’s surprising appearance sparked much chatter backstage at the Garden. Still, WWE.com had to ask the former champion if he had any plans to return to his old stomping grounds.

To that, Van Dam only had one response.

“There’s always a chance.”

To see what other surprises the evening holds, tune into the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony this Tuesday on USA Network!

So here are the official rules:

  • Everyone starts with 200 points.
  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Using your 200 points you pick the winners of each match and assign a point value based on how confident you are in the winner.
  • You can only use the number of points you have to bet. In other words if you have 75 points, you can only bid up to 75 points for that entire show.
  • You do not have to bet on every match.
  • If you have more than 200 points, you can't bet all your points into one match.
  • If you reach 0 then you are eliminated.
  • 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.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.

And here's the official list of Matches (via WWE.com):

  • Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs The Miz - Singles Match for the Intercontinental Championship (This match is on the Interactive Pre-Show available on WWE.com, WWE Active on the WWE App, Youtube.com/WWE, Facebook.com/WWE and Yahoo.com at 6 PM EDT)
  • Tons of Funk and The Funkadactyls vs Team Rhodes Scholars and The Bella Twins - Eight Person Mixed Tag Team Match
