Edge Injury

Posted in News, Wrestler Spotlight with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2009 by biggman621

WWE superstar Edge was injured at a house show a couple nights ago. The injury came in a match with Jeff Hardy when he tried to float over Hardy after being whipped into the corner. At first, the injury was only thought to be a twisted ankle or possibly a broken ankle, making Edge only miss a couple of weeks at the most. Unfortunately, after some additional tests, it was discovered that Edge suffered a torn Achilles Tendon and will be likely out until early 2010.

This is upsetting news since He and Chris Jericho had appeared to be slated to lose the tag titles in another team (my guess is Legacy at Summerslam or Night of Champions) . So, that plan will have to be reworked. Edge has proven himself to be a valuable asset to not only Smackdown, but to the entire WWE itself. I would like to wish him the best of luck in his recovery, which I hope is a quick one.

Sorry this so late everybody.

ECW Championship match: Jack Swagger (c) vs Christian

Jack Swagger vs Christian

Swagger uses a couple shoulder blocks to gain control and then a press slams Christian out of the ring which earns him a two count. Swagger uses a knee and then a reverse waist lock to ground Christian. Christian kicks out of another two count after reversing a kick in the corner. Swagger goes to a bear hug and Christian fights out. Another two count by Swagger by using a gut buster and then goes back to the waist lock. Christian runs into a knee. Swagger tried a splash from the top rope and eats s knee. Christian gets a two count from a great sunset flip. Another slam by Swagger and now goes for the Gutwrench Powerbomb.

Swagger goes for the corner splash and Christian counters with the Kill Switch (Unprettier) for the three count. Christian is the ECW champion. This was extremely fun match to watch. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Chris Jericho vs Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat

Streamboat has some gas in the tank. Steamboat gets control early and starts to work on Jericho with an arm drag. Jericho hits a couple forearms, but gets caught again with an arm drag. They trade shots and Steamboat hangs on to the ropes as Jericho hits a couple quick moves to gain control. Jericho puts in a terrible version of the tazmission. Steamboat hits a deep arm drag but Jericho gets up quickly and hits a clothesline for two. The fans seem disinterested by Jericho. Steamboat reverses a whip and sends Jericho to the top rope.

Here is the Backlash match card for tonight:

CM Punk vs Kane

Chris Jericho vs Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat

“I Quit” Match: Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy

WWE Championship Match: Triple H (c), Batista, and Shane McMahon vs Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase Jr., and Cody Rhodes

ECW Title Match: Jack Swagger (c) vs Christian

Last Man Standing Match for the World Heavyweight Title: John Cena (c) vs Edge

My Predictions:

Kane defeats CM Punk

Chris Jericho defeats Ricky Steamboat

Matt Hardy defeats Jeff Hardy

HHH, Batista, and Shane O’ Mac defeat Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, and Ted DiBiase Jr. – I feel a turn coming.

Christian defeats Jack Swagger – If he doesn’t win, Christian may want to start considering leaving again. This means that Vince won’t let him get any bigger than he is now.

Edge defeats John Cena – I would be shocked if both titles stay on Raw.

My WWE draft thoughts.

I have a lot to say about the WWE draft, so let’s get down to business.

MVP to Raw: MVP is a great wrestler who is finally starting to get recognized

Big Show to Raw: I understand they want to move the love triangle with Edge and Vickie, but this is giong to get stale very quickly.

Melina to Smackdown: I feel nothing about this move.

Matt Hardy to Raw: Matt Hardy will not survive as a heel on Raw. His mic skills leave a lot to be desired, but he can wrestle. I am torn on this one.

Triple H to Raw: Obvious move here with Randy Orton being on Raw. I think everyone saw this coming.

CM Punk to Smackdown: This move leads me to believe that he will have the title on Smackdown. Seems to me like Edge will win the last man standing match only to see Punk take it from him….again. Continue reading

WWE Draft Update

Posted in News, TV show reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2009 by biggman621

Here are the results from the WWE draft on Raw:

United States Champion MVP moved from Smackdown to Raw

The Big Show moved from Smackdown to Raw

Women’s Champion Melina moved from Raw to Smackdown

Matt Hardy moved from Smackdown to Raw

Triple H moved from Smackdown to Raw

CM Punk moved from Raw to Smackdown

The Miz moved from ECW to Raw

Kane moved from Raw to Smackdown

Chris Jericho moved from Raw to Smackdown

Vladomir Koslov moved from Smackdown to ECW

Divas Champion Maryse moved from Smackdown to Raw

Intercontental Champion Rey Mysterio moved from Raw to Smackdown

My Reactions:

Ok, I got a lot to say about this draft thus far. First of all, judging by Show moving to Raw, who doesn’t see Edge moving with him? I happen to like Smackdown’s picks as opposed to everyone else. The only bad thing about Smackdown now is that MVP won’t be there.

Also, The Miz and Morrison break up was a great move. I love the idea of the wrestlers moving into singles competition. My issue is that they brought up the wrong wrestler. Morrison is an incredible wrestler that deserves the spotlight and he didn’t get it. This is yet another time where the WWE shine the lime light on someone who probably doesn’t deserve it.

Be sure to keep it here on Wednesday because I will be posting the results of supplemental draft.
