@turboman: Maybe I'm reading too much into the wording, but Heyman's website is hinting at WWE getting more Extreme, so I guess RVD? And that's hilarious because the last time they were together in WWE, Heyman screwed RVD out of the ECW Title.

Oh and here are my Krazy™ predictions for the third guy:

  1. The Miz: There was an article on WWE.com talking about how Heyman says that he helped create The Miz and that tandem would get heel heat from all audiences.
  2. Kaitlyn: Paul Heyman is actually the secret admirer and he's out to form a faction where every member is a Champion.
  3. The Shield: Not really Krazy™ because it seems pretty logical.
  4. Big Show: We've gone back in time to 2002/2006.
  5. Christian: Would be a good way to bring him back.

LoC

The Miz vs Cody Rhodes - Singles Match: WWE is high on Miz; Rhodes, not so much.
Winner: The Miz
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, DQ, etc.): Submission

Chris Jericho vs Fandango - Singles Match: Jericho gets his win back and opens the door for a possible third match.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, DQ, etc.): Submission

Randy Orton vs Big Show - Extreme Rules Match: Orton's "Just There" gimmick continues and loses to Show.
Winner: Big Show
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, etc.): Pin

Sheamus vs Mark Henry - Strap Match: I don't know, RMT says Henry's winning and he could be a great next challenger for Cena's title (and a win would make him look very strong), but Sheamus hasn't won a PPV match since Survivor Series (and Night of Champions was the last time he won a match by pin or DQ) and a win could set him up as a challenger for a title.
Winner: Mark Henry
Order of corners touched (1 point per correct corner): Front Right, Front Left, Back Left, Back Right

WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No vs The Shield (Rollins and Reigns) - Tag Team Tornado Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship: Shield wins and Freebirds the title.
Winner: The Shield
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, etc.): Pin
Person who takes the win (2 pts): Roman Reigns
Person who takes the loss (2 pts): Daniel Bryan

United States Champion Kofi Kingston vs Dean Ambrose - Singles Match for the United States Championship: Dean looks strong and is made to look better than Kofi, but he doesn't leave with the title.
Winner: Dean Ambrose
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, DQ, etc.): DQ

Alberto Del Rio vs Jack Swagger - World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender's I Quit Match: Jack flukes a win and either feuds with Ziggler, who turns face with his posse, or Del Rio finds his way back in and we're back where we started.
Winner (2 pts): Jack Swagger

Triple H vs Brock Lesnar - Steel Cage Match: Brock gets his win back for the win he gave back at Mania.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
Method of victory (Pin, Sub, Escape, etc.): Escape

WWE Champion John Cena vs Ryback - Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship: RMT says Cena's winning, that's good enough for me.
Winner (2 pts): John Cena

Krazy™ Predictions

  1. Josh Mathews interferes in the Cena/Ryback match and helps Ryback win, completing his heel turn.
  2. AJ/Kaitlyn ends up happening as a bonus segment. The segment ends with The Bellas standing tall over everyone else.
  3. The rest of The Shield attacks Kofi just before he's about to beat Ambrose, Team Hell No runs out to save Kofi and Teddy Long comes out and calls for a Six Man TAG TEAM MATCH! For all the gold.
  4. Jack wins when a recording of Del Rio saying I QUIT! is played and the ref thinks Del Rio is saying it for real.
  5. Fandangirl, jealous that Fandango is with Summer Rae now, comes out and costs him the match, aligning herself with Chris Jericho and leads to Jericho/Fandangirl vs Fandango/Summer Rae at a PPV.

Just so people are aware, the Method of victory is just meant to be how they win (pin, DQ, etc.) and not the exact finish. But, for those of you that have already written them, you don't need to change anything, I'll count finishers like the RKO as a pin and submission moves as a submission.

@milkman: Yeah, I know the corners thing is weird, but it's an attempt to do some weirder stuff with the predictions (do more than just winner and how they won).

@rabid619: Yeah, it's pretty much a reset. There was going to be one after Mania regardless, so might as well change the formula now.

Here's a secret, I never counted up the scores for WrestleMania... Until Now! (I should note that I counted the 8 Person match that was scrapped from Mania and done on Raw the next night). Also, look at the rules as they've changed dramatically because, as you can notice, number one and two are towering over everyone else. So, to give everyone an equal playing field the system's been changed to a questionnaire style prediction sheet. Also, since I'm spring it out of the blue, I'll take any sort of comments or questions about the new system and, if everyone hates it, we'll switch back to the old one for Payback.

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 don't 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.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.

So, i'm still catching up on last weeks WWE, just watched Smackdown, was that world record legit? He's not actually the WSM either is he?

Probably not, there were enough possible camera tricks to fake it and, if it was legit, the WWE PR machine would be talking about it nonstop. As for his nickname, it's a half-truth because he is an international strongman competition winner (The Arnold Strongman Classic) and, for a time, was considered to be the strongest man in the world, but he hasn't competed since the Arnold classic in 2002, so there are probably stronger people out there today.

@turboman: @drx25: It still amazes me that the top guy in the WWE has a move he uses all the time that shares it's name with a slang term for masturbation.

They renamed those moves years ago.

Nope, it's still called the Five Knuckle Shuffle, they only renamed the F-U (to Attitude Adjustment) and the STF-U (back to the STF).

Big Japan Pro Wrestling announced that Sami Callihan has been pulled from their May 24 event due to signing a WWE contract.

PWInsider is reporting that WWE is looking to open a language training center in order to have Superstars seem more personable and appealing to other cultures. The idea came about after Cena spoke French at the WrestleMania Press Conference and management now wants him to learn Chinese.

In other Cena news, he did an ad for Fruity Pebbles and wants you to five knuckle shuffle in your face:
