Here are the results of WWE Breaking Point:

Singapore Cane Match: The Great Khali L vs Kane W

US Championship Match: Kofi Kingston (c) W vs The Miz L

United Tag Titles Match: Chris Jericho and Big Show (c) W vs MVP and Mark Henry L

ECW Championship Match: Christian (c) W vs William Regal L

Submission Falls Count Anywhere: D-Generation X L vs Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase W

I Quit Match for the WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) L vs John Cena W

World Heavyweight Title Match: CM Punk (c) W vs The Undertaker L

Normally what I would do here is talk about how the show was in general, but I feel like something else needs to be addressed. Vincent Kennedy McMahon: I hope you are listening.

We get it. We all understood what you did with the Punk/Undertaker match. For those of you who don’t know what the Montreal Screwjob is, search it on wikipedia and read what happened. Whether you read about it or know exactly what happened, you can’t help but be bothered by what the striking similarities of the match.

I will be one of the first people to say that fans from Canada are usually more knowledgable about what happens in pro wrestling. Flashback to Survivor Series 1997, the pride and joy of Canadian wrestling, Bret Hart was the WWF champion and on his way over to WCW for his own reasons. VKM screws him over and Shawn Michaels has the title. We return to Breaking Point in the same city as the 97 Series. We got the SAME ENDING.

My question is why was this necessary? I would have rather had Punk get DQ’d by kicking the ref than reinacting the screwjob. Hell, I would have rather the creative team say “we got no ending, so make it up.”

Imagine being a huge wrestling fan in Canada seeing your hero losing the title without him tapping out or anything. Think about how mad you would be at the bookers and how upset it would make you, seeing your hero have something truely stolen from him. Now, flash forward to Breaking Point. You just got tickets to or are watching Breaking Point, and you have to relive the memory that saw your national hero lose the title. I think once is unforgivable, but twice is plain cruel.

Enough is enough Vince. There is absolutely no reason to pull this. Am I to expect you to pull this every pay per view event your in Montreal? If so, let me know so I can get a head start. Otherwise, KEEP IT AWAY. I don’t care what you do, but don’t under any condition bring up the screwjob again.

We get it Vince. You won. You screwed Bret.

Drop it!

WWE Breaking Point Preview and Predictions

Here is my preview of WWE Breaking Point Tonight:

Singapore Cane Match: The Great Khali vs Kane

This is one of the matches that no one cares about on the card. Kane hasn’t been remotely close to relevent since he took off the mask and Khali is a joke of a wrestler. Kane gets the win in this suckfest.

US Championship Match: Kofi Kingston (c)vs The Miz

The Miz has looked like a legitimate contender for this title, but I think Kofi is too over with the fans for him to lose it to Miz. That being said, I am picking The Miz.

United Tag Titles Match: Chris Jericho and Big Show (c) vs MVP and Mark Henry

I like JeriShow so unless there is a legitimate tag team to come out, I will continue to pick them.

ECW Championship Match: Christian (c) vs William Regal

I pray that they don’t screw this one up. This should end with a Regal DQ and a beatdown.

Submission Falls Count Anywhere: D-Generation X vs Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase

I think Legacy should win this match to keep the rivalry going. I smell a DiBiase sharpshooter on Shawn Michaels.

I Quit Match for the WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) vs John Cena

I won’t even predict who will win since I really couldn’t care less about this match. You know that this match is stale when ABSOLUTELY NO ONE CARES WHO WINS. We have seen Cena/Orton 100000000 times. Dear WWE, FIND A NEW  TITLE CONTENDER.

World Heavyweight Title Match: CM Punk (c) vs The Undertaker

This is a good example of what the WWE does do and continues to do well. This should be the match of the night and I expect Punk to win the match cleanly.

Top 5s For SummerSlam

Posted in PPV Events/ Live Event Reviews, Top 5 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2009 by biggman621

Because it is easier to do, I’ll start with the bad reasons.

TOP 5 REASONS TO PASS ON THIS YEAR’S SUMMERSLAM:

5. The match card was extremely easy to pick winners.

4. William Regal deserves better than an eight second match.

3. The Great Khali vs Kane was atrocious.

2. John Cena and Randy Orton having another match at a Pay Per View. Seriously, besides Triple H, they face no one.

1. The worst ending to a match that I have seen in a long time. *Cena/Orton

TOP 5 REASONS TO WATCH IT

5. DX reunites for possibly the last run as a team. Both men are getting older and who knows if we will ever see it again.

4. Dolph Ziggler and Rey Mysterio put on a good match.

3. Legacy actually looked like they belonged in the ring with HHH and Michaels.

2. The TLC match was better than I could have expected, even with Hardy and Punk in it.

1. The Undertaker made his return to take on Punk.

Here is the match card for Summerslam tonight:

Jack Swagger vs MVP

The Great Khali vs Kane

Unified Tag Team Title Match: Chris Jericho and  The Big Show (c) vs Cryme Tyme (Shad and JTG)

ECW Title Match: Christian (c) vs William Regal

Intercontinental Title Match: Rey Mysterio (c) vs Dolph Ziggler

World Heavyweight Title TLC Match: Jeff Hardy(c) vs CM Punk

WWE Title Match: Randy Orton (c) vs John Cena

D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) vs Legacy (Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr.)

My Predictions:

Let me start off by saying that this may be one of weakest cards on paper that I have seen at Summerslam in a very long time.

I think MVP should beat Swagger, but the push that Swagger is getting confuses me because there are more talented and more experienced wrestlers who deserve it.  Ultimately, I am going to have Swagger win this one.

In the Khali/Kane feud, almost everyone I talk to thinks the sooner this ends the better. I would love to see another Kane/Taker feud, but that probably will not happen for a while. This will be a very telling point in the WWE career of Khali. If he doesn’t look good losing to Kane tonight, I would not be shocked to see him gone from the company.

The tag team of Jericho and Big Show has been a really nice addition to the lack luster tag team division in the WWE. In a post I will do later this week, I’ll rate the tag teams in the WWE and TNA and do a tournament to see who would come out on top so keep a look out for that. With almost no storyline put into this match, I can’t see Cryme Tyme winning the match, so I’ll give the nod to Show and Jericho.

The Christian/Regal match is the one I am most intrigued by. I have been waiting a while for Regal to get some kind of push and I really like the dynamic of this match. Christian usually gives a good match and Regal should provide a formidable opponent. If I was to book this match, I would have Ezekiel Jackson and Vladomir Koslov come into to distract Christian and Regal to roll him up for the victory. I think Regal will take this one.

I will be the first to admit it: I was unimpressed by Dolph Ziggler, but he has grown on me. He is very technically sound and I feel they may need to truely develop a new star and I think he is ready to take the title from Mysterio.

The TLC match is going to be a very interesting match. In the WWE’s struggle to be more PG, how in the world does a TLC match, which is one of the most dangerous matches, fit into that category? I think both men will do very well and make the match work in CM Punk’s favor. I just think this match might be a little much.

Cena/Orton 800 is the match I care least about. At this point, I do not care who wins this match. I just hope one loses to Jericho in the next few months because I am really tired of seeing the title cycle between 3 or 4 guys. I think Orton will keep the title.

I had a feeling about 3 or 4 months ago that we could see DX again and I feel like this is perfect timing. It puts another tag team, which I feel could take the titles, on the map and its nice to see Rhodes and DiBiase as something other than Orton’s lackeys. I think DX is going to take this one.

Sorry this so late everybody.

ECW Championship match: Jack Swagger (c) vs Christian

Jack Swagger vs Christian

Swagger is controlling Christian early with some mat wrestling. Christian slaps him and follows it up with a spinning calf kick. After a spinning elbow, Christian earns a two count. 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. Christian hit a tornado DDT for a two count. Another big slam from Swagger. Christian is up on the top rope and uses a backdrop from the second rope. Swagger hits a splash from the top rope for a two count. Christian uses and interesting roll up to get a two count. Swagger hits an Oklahoma slam and they both take off a turnbuckle cover. 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. Steamboat hits a superplex from the top rope for a near fall. A couple near falls from The Dragon later, Jericho hits an Ensuigri. Jericho hits the bulldog and goes for a lionsault. Steamboat reverses but gets caught in the Walls of Jericho. Ricky reverses into the figure four. Jericho rolled to the ropes to break it up. Dragon goes to the top rope, avoids a diving Jericho and hits the cross body from the top rope for a two count. Dragon goes to the second rope and Jericho counters with the code breaker for another two count. Steamboat uses a package for a near fall. Jericho locks in the walls of Jericho and Dragon has to tap out. This was an awesome match. 3 out of 5 stars. Steamboat salutes the crowd to a standing ovation. Continue reading

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
