Oh. I wonder if Randy Orton is going to win this #1 Contenders match as the only man who is even VAGUELY face in the steel cage.

And if Barrett loses, he's out of Nexus, and there's no way they're making Punk a Barret lacky.
God damn, this just got thoroughly predictable.




I'll leave an "edit" here just in case Creative manages to surprise me.

EDIT: They didn't.

God damnit.

Started great, ended shite.

And I must have missed when they changed the Steel Cage rules, but what is the purpose of the match anymore when the fucking ref just opens the door every now and then? Seriously? the getting out over the top was the only challenge in the match.

On reflection it wasn't helped by the Uso one pulling the rope down about half an inch :P

"old" video - still a fave for Cena hate though, god that crowd hated him - but huge respect for working his ass off in that match and for going out to a crowd who obviously detested him :lol:




Mick Foley wrote about this in his book , he said it was the only time he had ever felt worried for Cena because that crowd would have killed him

I have this on dvd , he proved tome how well he can craft a match in this , he called the match in the ring

I love that PPV so much.

I miss the days when Van Dam could always pull out at least a 4 star match. He is phenomenal.

Too bad he's wasted in TNA, that joke of a company needs to die already, it's so bad. It's worse than WCW at its lowest.

EDIT: The t-shirt thing never ever ever stops being amazing.

I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

Glorious three way feud with Punk and Cena I hope.

Btw, something I just saw:

"Here's an interesting stat. John Cena and/or Randy Orton have been in a WWE Title or World Heavyweight Title match at every WWE pay-per-view for over two years now. The last show that didn't have either of them in a top title match was WWE's Cyber Sunday 2008 where the main events were Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy for the WWE Title and Chris Jericho vs. Batista for the World Title."

SPOILERS.



Apparently he's over on Smackdown at the moment. Which is perfect, because just what Smackdown needs is another mid card heel :|

They might build him up to be a main event heel. But the real issue here is why the fuck did they move him over to Smackdown when there's a perfectly AWESOME feud potential on RAW. I mean, I know Smackdown sucks but come on, WWE. Give the people what they want.

I'm pretty sure he's been moved over to Smackdown for a fued with Undertaker when he returns, since he was incharge of nexus taking him out a while back.

Shame he's been moved, smackdown is the drizzling shits. :(

The one good thing about Smackdown is Alberto Del Rio. But sadly, ten ADRs will not make up for even one Rey Mysterio and so Smackdown I do not watch.
