For those of you who are curious to know how well I predicted the wrestling pay per view, here are quick results.

Kane def. Khali in a nobody cares about anything match, I was wrong, but my motivation was just to end this ridiculous waste of airtime. Now they'll probably have to go at it again so that the babyface can beat the heel.

Kofi def. Miz. I called this one, but it was so incredibly predictable. They needed a match to fill time and they needed a fall guy. Miz was perfect, it allowed WWE to continue it's love affair with Kofi and since Miz has nothing to lose in the shame department it's perfectly fine for him to lose on a pay per view...again.

Christian def. Regal Yawn. Christian is becoming as boring as Cena, but without the muscles.

Show/Jericho def. Henry/MVP, also annoyingly boring. How's this for a finishing move, 7 foot 500 pound guy punches you in the face. No matter who you are, you go down, and thats the end of it. They have guys that do full gainers standing or from turnbuckles, they have guys that will dive on you from 20 feet in the air. They have guys that can lift 700plus pounds on their shoulders and bodyslam you, and they end a pay-per-view fight with a punch...again.

Legacy def. DX. I like this, because the bad guys win. They squeezed a submission out of poor 45 year old Shawn Michaels. Who was one of David's favorite wrestlers when he was 9. He doesn't remember this, but I do. 

Punk def. Undertaker. I like this because, although the match was poorly hyped and no one would be happy if the undertaker submitted, the general manager reversed the referee's decision to recognize Punk's tap by calling Taker's submission move illegal. Punk siezes the opportunity to lock in his own submission, and the referee calls Taker out without any sign from the deadman. Punk, GM, and referee together cheap Undertaker out of the title. Makes for an interesting Smackdown next week.

Cena def. Orton. I predicted brilliance in a Cena heel turn, but economics wins out. With Hardy probably selling the most merchandise, but then leaving and therefore getting his items largely pulled from WWE shop, Cena is propped up with his boring as anything ever concocted gimmick of being a marine-wannabe and yelling a lot. I hate Raw. I like ECW, and Smackdown is a real treat. This Pay-per-view largely sucked. That's all for today.
