current rumours are punk and jericho is the opening match at WM. only 3 years after making the WWE title match come after HBK vs taker despite the participants reluctance to follow shawn and taker, just because its the WWE title, they're now going to open with it. what a stupid idea. its easily one of the biggest matches on the card, as they know quite well since its getting half an hour set aside. they should open with the GM match, WWE title should be last, or at the very least before rock and cena.

Punk v Jericho to open is bizarre. But it's a strong card and someone has to open, though it really should be Big Show v Rhodes and the GM match second.

There's no question that Rock v Cena will close and they'll get 45 minutes.

other rumours are the rock is getting as long as he wants for promos and segments, with the only match times set for sure being about 30 minutes for punk vs jericho, HHH vs taker and rock vs cena. so theres an hour and a half gone before the rock's promos. this years WM has potential, it could all go tits up if they put too much into rock vs cena :( theres no word on a diva's match yet, but i read a while back that there might not be one

I'd heard that they were having the divas match as a dark match, but there's a chance that there might not even be one on the card at all. I also hope that we don't have a situation like last year where they let Rocky talk for 20 minutes meaning that there's not enough room for one of the booked matches.

Maybe they're having the WWE Champ match on first in case they need to cut Big Show vs Cody Rhoades?

I think a title match would get the crowd pumped more then Rhodes/Big show.

The world heavyweight championship needs a hell of a kick up the ass, I don't even watch Smackdown these days, it's so boring. I actually prefer John Laurinititisiususususus to Teddy Long.

Anyone with any sense does! Unfortunately we make up a minority amongst WWE fans.

Laryngitis makes me cringe. He's not entertaining, not a good heel and not right for a TV role. Get him back behind the scenes and make Vickie or Regal the GM.

I do however want to see him battered by CM Punk.

i disagree, regal shouldnt be GM. he should be WHC. vickie needs to piss off, or at the very least be taken away from dolph ziggler. the only reason she gets any heat is her annoying voice. laurinitis is vastly superior, to both vickie and teddy long.

excellent :lol: more fodder to put Big Show over or whatnot

apparantly being rumoured he's being bought in for post-Wrestlemania and guessing at being Lauringitis' bodyguard, so guessing he wins the GM battle at WM .... :?

Prince Albert, is that who I'm thinking it is... The A-Train?
