Back in 1999 at No Mercy PPV the Hardy’s took on Edge and Christian in a ladder match. Then the following WrestleMania and SummerSlam had a triple Ladder match. Then in the spring of 2001 Mick Foley who was the commissioner at the time made that famous line saying “Tables, Ladders and Chairs oh my” Once they had their crazy and spot fest match at WrestleMania 17 the match was sold in the hearts of the WWE Universe. Hardy’s brought the Ladders while the Dudley Boys had tables and The two future world champions Edge and Christian had the chairs.
TLC Match For Both WWE and World Heavyweight Titles: John Cena Vs. Randy Orton
Many people think this is the unification match for both titles but I would say you’re wrong. I see this as what it should be. Cena goes on to win it; He holds both titles until WrestleMania 30. Randy Orton wins the Royal Rumble and challenges Cena to a unification match at WM 30. The winner is the “Undisputed Champion” of the WWE. I would have John Cena go over to make the title prestige once again and they would go on to feud over the title. It gives both men a mission and a storyline for the next couple months.
Alberto Del Rio Vs. The Big Show For the Right For the Big Show to face Triple H at Royal Rumble PPV.
For months now the rumor as been Big Show and Triple H will get a match together down the road. Most of the past couple months have felt like that with Big Show being broke storyline and Triple H costing him the WWE Title at Survivor Series. With Del Rio kicking him in the head and probably a concussion storyline on Raw. This will make sense to have all men have a program. Big Show blames the “Authority” AKA Triple H for not letting him compete for the next two weeks. Then the stipulation is added.
CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Rhode Brothers Vs. Wyatt Family, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins in a 8 Man Tag Team Table Match
Punk and Bryan was taken out by Both Wyatt Family and The Shield on Raw. The Rhode Brothers already have a feud with The Shield. Have the Rhode Bothers come to their rescue and they team up in a match of the night candidate. Have Reigns spear one of them through a table and continue this feud between Punk and Bryan Vs. the Wyatt’s.
Tornado Style Chair Tag Team Match: Mark Henry and Big E. Langston Vs. Curtis Axel and Ryback
On this past week’s Raw we saw Henry and Langston tag up. They were dominating and for some odd reason WWE keeps the former “Heyman Guys” together. All four men have a history so why not let me go at it. Have Henry and Langston in a dominate style
Ladder Match: The Miz Vs. Kofi Kingston
It’s the opening match or Pre-Show match. Let them go out and burn down the house. Have Kingston go over to further more make Miz mad and push him closer to being a heel.
Divas Title Match: Brie Bella Vs. AJ Lee ©
They been teasing for Brie to finally beat AJ and at this PPV let her go over. New Champion!
Do you agree? Disagree? Or even think these matches happen. Let me know.
Good Day fellow wrestling fan’s. I’ve been away a while and I apologize for that. It’s been a busy couple of weeks here in the Canadian nation capital of Ottawa. I’ve been away, but I’ve been watching, and I figure, why not vent some of my thoughts over the past couple of weeks of WWE TV. I obviously can’t cover everything, however, here is what sticks out the most. Let’s get to it.
The Shield & Real Americans def. Rey Mysterio, Usos, Cody, Goldust
ARs Truth: A good opening match that had an upset with the winners. All men got good time but with their only being Reigns as the last guy he stood out for a reason. He will be someone down the road but right now I’m not sure that time is now.
I just want to come out before I dive into this prediction column and say if WWE expects big numbers from this PPV then they have officially lost their minds. Look just at the card and how they built things up it should be a card that has some good matches but nothing to go out of your way and pay 60-65 bucks for. The build to this PPV has been poor in the nicest terms. On to the card:
I am a die-hard wrestling fan and I like to go back watching old, classic matches of wrestling. From now on these columns will go back and relive some of these matches. The first edition is for the World Heavyweight Championship from SummerSlam of 2004 involving the Champion in Chris Benoit and the challenger Randy Orton.
Many WWE fans know the back ground of Triple H, the man who changed the business and held many championships. He has been the upright gentlemen when he made his WWE debut through the young and juvenile member/ leader of “Degeneration X” to the corporate guy. In his later years the top guy in company and is the “Authority” figure of the WWE.

WWE’s first-ever (first annual?) Battleground pay-per-view event is this Sunday, and as of this writing, it feels fairly cold for a WWE PPV.
Night of Champions was WWE’s first bad show in a long time. Battleground is coming too soon, and of the three announced matches so far, two are Night of Champions rematches. The lion’s share of online discussion I’ve seen of the main event has been centered around what exactly the finish of the Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan main event will be.
Editor’s note: SBNation writer Bill Hanstock (@sundownmotel) wrote this funny article comparing Major League Baseball teams to professional wrestlers. Check out the list of National League teams below:
A couple weeks ago, the Diamondbacks unveiled their official D-backs Luchador mascot, who will join their bobcat mascot and their three “Racing Legends” mascots as a third-tier mascot. Still not a mascot for the Arizona Diamondbacks? Any sort of reptile. Seems like kind of an oversight.
Naturally, we set about to determine which professional wrestlers, past or present, would be represented by the current incarnations of the Major League Baseball teams. We get paid for this!
