    Elevation X, basically an old school scaffold match (NWA style)....

    Looks interesting. I guess they will start up on the scaffold and try to kick each other off? That kind of ends up happening in every Ultimate X match anyway.

    I'm surprised they put Rhyno in there and not Christopher Daniels (or Elix Skipper, or any number of more agile stars) though.

    yeah that really surprised me too, i'm hoping they do a secondary match on the card utilizing the scaffold, maybe an X division invitational, that would be nuts

    Masato Tanaka's my favourite wrestler and his matches with Awesome in FMW are just incredible. That article from pwinsider mentions his match with Tanaka at the first One Night Stand as being the best thing that's come out of the ECW revival...I tend to agree. It was one of the must-see matches of the 'new' ECW.

    So seeing as Vince picked Umaga last night, it may make sense that Trump will pick Roddy Piper as his opponent...factoring in the recent attack, plus it's the 20th anniversary of Piper's hair vs hair match against Adrian Adonis. ;)

    It'd be cool, but Piper's not in any shape to wrestle right now. Dude is still recovering from cancer, and if you saw his last match, he ain't pretty no more.

    Umaga would use piper as his own personal bagpipe...at this point Flair would look better in a match than the rowdy one and that's saying a lot.

    I think this would be a solid WM:

    Batista vs Taker
    Cena vs Michaels
    Umaga vs Lashley
    Kane vs Khali
    MITB = Edge-Orton-CM Punk-Booker T-Elijah Burke-Kennedy
    Melina vs Ashley
    Finlay vs Boogeyman
    Mysterio vs Guererro
    Kendrick and London vs Taylor and Regal
    Carlito vs Flair
    Open Invitational Battle Royal for anyone else not listed above

    i can;t believe i actually just thought all of that out, what am I, 12????? :p

    Spoiler for Mania:

    It'll be Lashley (with Trump) vs. Umaga (with Vince) with Stone Cold as the referee. Apparently there was a photo shoot with all of them not long ago so barring an injury to one of the participants, that's what it's going to look like.

    Apparently Hogan dropped out because (surprise) he wasn't going to get the biggest payday out of all the participants on the show.

    I'm seriously shocked that Hogan won't be at Mania. He pulls that same act every year around January where all of a sudden all these other groups are interested in him and if Vince wants him he's going to have to pay up. Then sure enough, he and Vince come to an agreement and he ends up at the show.

    I thought that this year would be even more of a lock since it's the 20th aniversary of Hogan vs. Andre and they'd want to recreate the visual of Hogan slamming a giant like Big Show or Khali.

    I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this week's Observer now to see what the explanation is.
  15. Flashy_McFlash

    This is from Hogan's mouth on the Bubba show (according to pwinsider) so it's still kind of dubious but I would think that if he were going to appear, it'd be in the Trump match.

    Then again, Khali's not booked right now so they could still put him in. Lashley/Umaga is fairly locked up right now from what I've been hearing though.

    Unfortunately, that means they're not going to take the belt off Lashley anytime soon either.

    McMahon pulled Hogan from Mania because he leaked the Hall of Fame Candidates on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. McMahon was understandably pissed, and booked him off the show.

    I never liked Hogan anyway. Good for Austin to decide not to work with Hogan, and good on Michaels for showing him up at SummerSlam 2005.

    found this here: http://pewterpirates.blogspot.com/2007/01/wwe-hall-of-fame.html

    Rick Rude,the Von Erichs, and Flair should go in for sure, and Dusty's already confirmed. Flair might be up for debate though since hesstill an active wrestler.

    Warrior wouldn't happen, and I have no clue why the Bushwhackers are on that list.

    Anyone catch the 2-hour Impact last night? Thoughts?

    I tried to watch it but it's just so cheesy and I couldn't stand it for more than a couple of minutes. I remember actually paying for a few of the weekly $10 PPVs years ago and they were great, and then I was soooo stocked when they 1) brought in Samoa Joe (but failed to use him properly) and then 2) had him feud with Kurt Angle (which they also completely blew). At this point I've lost so much faith in their ability to book a decent product and a lot of what I read about the current state compares TNA to WCW circa it's dying days.
