@brodehouse: I mean a bunch of people still spray tan, although the worst was probably 2012 where The Miz left a giant spray tan spot in the middle of the ring during the Royal Rumble.

Also, I would say it's less lawsuits and more economy on wear and tear. It's easier on the body to not go out there and act like you're in a strong style match, especially when some of the guys work like 300 dates a year.

@hadoken101: Yeah, I get the feeling that they'll reveal the ad on Raw (Miz seems to have no clue what the ad even is about) and everyone will laugh at Miz for selling a dick pill.

@gorillamopena: You know, I think that's where Vomit Vision™ (when they zoom in and out on every single punch or kick) comes from. Also, while it has gotten clearer in general, it's also easier to spot it now than as a kid. I've gone back to old matches and can now clearly see blown spots and spot calling.

It's official, Bad News Barrett will defend the Intercontinental Championship in a Ladder Match at WrestleMania.

Opponents TBA (although it's a safe bet to say that Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth and probably Daniel Bryan will be involved).

The WWE continues to look like total asses week in, week out.

In booking news, looks like Daniel Bryan might have a direction for Mania (Smackdown spoilers):

A Four-Way Match between him, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett for the IC Title.

Krazy™ Predictions

  • Bad News Barrett will steal Dean Ambrose's clothes. Ambrose will then steal a Rosebud outfit to wrestle in.
  • At some point during Goldust/Stardust, Goldust will say "Cody"; Stardust will then murder him.
  • Nattie, to make up for screwing up the match on Raw, will cost The Usos their titles.

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.
  • Special Thanks to @EricSmith who is donating a year membership to Giant Bomb Premium to whoever has the best cumulative score throughout 2015.

@milkman: Alex Riley returned to action against CJ Parker. I'm guessing he'll get a few wins before he gets destroyed by Owens.
