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

Posted in Match Cards, Show Predictions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2009 by biggman621

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.

WWE Champion Suspended

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on August 29, 2009 by biggman621

Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio has been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of the WWE‘s Wellnesss Program. He will be allowed to work this week’s Smackdown, but will likely drop the title to Dolph Ziggler.

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.

Jeff Hardy/WWE

Posted in News with tags , , , , on August 21, 2009 by biggman621

I have gotten information regarding Jeff Hardy and his future in the WWE. I still have no way to confirm the status, but check tomorrow and I should have confirmation by then.

Another WWE Release

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on August 8, 2009 by biggman621

Former Smackdown Superstar Ricky Ortiz has been released by the WWE. This move comes as no surprise to most that I have spoken to. He had the build that Vince normally looks for in a wrestler. Although, he never quite panned out or reached his potential.
