Strangely enough my 3-year-old just watched that one today.

Soon, indeed!

THREE FALLS, ONE WINNER. The trivia title is on the line TONIGHT.

Anybody keeping up with Bleach? When I got my tablet, I got re-addicted to it. O_o Shiat is getting real, yo.

Oh yeah, I guess there's a PPV Too. XD

Missed the last few Raws live. They have me working too early the next couple of weeks. Technically, I shouldn't watch the PPV tonight either, but... what the hell. When there's wrestlers in the ring, you must Wippit
 
2013-10-06 07:18:06 PM  
I'd heard that they added Khali/Santino vs Cesaro/Swagger for tonight.  Why couldn't they have put that on the preshow and Sandow/Ziggler on the main ppv?
 
2013-10-06 07:18:26 PM  
Doing work at the moment and oddly not hyped at all for this PPV since the joke is that all the results of this one are null by the other PPV this month.

As per usual, we get OH MY GOD BIG SHOW JUST TURNED HEEL swerve.

I'll be in thread late but can't put together a guessing game so if someone else can throw it together, that'd help the group.
 
2013-10-06 07:18:56 PM  
Here's the full Battleground card, as WWE didn't bother to fill out or promote all of it last Monday.

Pre-Show: Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow

Comedy match: Santino Marella & Great Khali (w/ Hornswaggle) vs. The Real Americans w/ Zeb Colter

Squash: Bray Wyatt vs. Kofi Kingston

Intercontinental title: Curtis Axel (c) w/ Paul Heyman vs. R-Truth

Tag team match: The Rhodes Brothers w/ Dusty Rhodes vs. The Shield (Tag Team Champs, titles not on the line)
-- If the Rhodes win, they are rehired by WWE and Dusty keeps his job; if they lose, all the Rhodes are gone.

Divas title: AJ Lee (c) vs. Brie Bella w/ Nikki Bella

Grudge match: CM Punk vs. Ryback w/ Paul Heyman

World Heavyweight title / Extreme Rules match: Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Rob Van Dam w/ Ricardo Rodriguez

WWE title: Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton (title is in abeyance/vacant)

Overall it's not a bad card, due to the talent involved, but at least 2/3 of it was thrown together between Main Event and Smackdown last week, with no hype outside those shows, WWE.com and/or Twitter (Which only a small share of fans follow).

Rumor mill

- Big E's slipped through the cracks w/o his buddy John Cena to go to bat for him.

- RVD's deal ends tonight or tomorrow.

- Stacy Kiebler is rumored to come crawling back to return to WWE, but for a steep price if she does.

- Fandango might get shoehorned into Battleground to do a dance-off with somebody.

- Total Divas hasn't been renewed yet.

- Last week's Raw had its worst numbers since 1997. Expect panic mode to engage soon.

- Rey Mysterio hopes to return sometime. Don't hold your breath.

- Mark Henry's still hurt.

- John Cena's advertised for northeast events, but not in a wrestling capacity.

- WWE is coaxing the Ultimate Warrior to join the Hall of Fame.
 
2013-10-06 07:21:12 PM  
Not that it matters in this crappy PPV, but here are my picks:

Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton (WWE Championship match) - DBD by DQ so no title
Ryback vs Punk - Punk by DQ so this can go to HIAC
RVD vs Aberto of the River (WWE Hardcore Title Match) - RVD so Sandow can cash in and take it before RVD leaves the WWE again
Rhodes Bros vs Shield (Rhodes careers on line) - Rhodes Bros obviously
Curtis Axel vs R-Truth (Intercontinental Title match) - I wish it wasn't, but...Curtis Axel will leave with the title
Brie Bella vs AJ Lee (Divas Title match) - AJ Lee wins by the ass tap
Kofi Kingston vs Bray Wyatt - They're Here Kofi (Wyatt in beatdown)
Santino Marella & The Great Khali vs the shiatty Teaparty Americans - Have to go with Santino & Khali here
Dolph Ziggler vs Damien Sandow (kick off match) - Sandow loses here so he can cash in on RVD later

Good luck every body.

I'd expect it to be short and lucid, for Warrior anyway. He's not particularly sentimental about his WWE career.

2013-10-06 07:42:45 PM  
I don't wanna watch, I DON'T WANNA...

Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton (WWE Championship match) - DBD by DQ 
Ryback vs Punk - Punk 
RVD vs Aberto (WWE Hardcore Title Match) - Rio but Damien cashes in 
Rhodes Bros vs Shield (Rhodes careers on line) - Rhodes 
Curtis Axel vs R-Truth (Intercontinental Title match) - Axel
Brie Bella vs AJ Lee (Divas Title match) - AJ 
Kofi Kingston vs Bray Wyatt - OBEY
Santino Marella & The Great Khali vs Cesero and Swagger - ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Dolph Ziggler vs Damien Sandow (kick off match) - Ziggy
TWIST: HHH wins the belt.

I get the feeling WWE tries no where near as hard as it used to. When's the last time a wrestler went on a talk show, for example? I remember when Big Show used to go on Conan. Now they do stuff like Komen but it's all internal. It's being sold to those who already watch.
 
2013-10-06 07:46:56 PM  
Picks

Ryback over Punk via DQ
RVD over ADR, Sandow cashes in
Rhodes over Shield
Troof over Axel
AJ over Brie
Wyatts over Kofi, Kofi becomes new Wyatt family member (hey, I can dream for the heel turn, can't I?)
no one cares about Santino's match
Pre-show is frozen on my screen, but I'll say Ziggler

Twist: HHH screws both DBD and Orton over, awards the belt to Troof

So who wins this match is (though it shouldn't be) dependent on who is the lesser of two jobbers.

Last night me and P$ went to a WWE house show and Sandow jobbed to Justin Gabriel. Justin. farking. Gabriel. fark this company.

It's not easy being a Sandow mark.

Yes but being the MITB holder is like being the IC Champ. You have to job and put everyone over while you have it. At least with MITB you eventually get a win for yourself
