I don't know that anyone other than aleialoura or myself will actually post in here, but on the off chance that anyone else does like wrestling and wants to talk wrestlecrap with us, here's a thread.

Wrestling is really hot again at the moment - I watched from 1999 - 2003 pretty religiously and then haven't really watched properly since then until about 3 months ago.

Here's the card for Vengeance, tonight.

John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio (WWE Title, Last Man Standing)
The Miz and R-Truth vs HHH and CM Punk
Mark Henry vs Big Show (World Title)
Randy Orton vs Cody Rhodes
Christian vs Sheamus
Zack Ryder vs Dolph Ziggler (US Title)
Beth Phoenix vs Eve (Divas' Title)
Air Boom vs Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger (Tag Titles)

Me and aleia are also going to have a prediction contest in which the loser will be posting a video of themselves cutting a promo on the other, so I'm sure that'll be hilarious for everyone.
My predictions:

ADR defeats John Cena
HHH and Punk defeat Miz/Truth
Henry defeats Big Show
Randy Orton defeats Cody Rhodes
Christian defeats Sheamus
Ziggler defeats Ryder
Phoenix defeats Eve
Air Boom defeat Swaggler

RE: Atheist Forums WWE Superthread
Nice Thread

John Cena destroys Del Rio!!
HHH and Punk victory.
Big Show wins belt.
Orton beats Rhodes with his own mask for the win.
Sheamus stomps Christian a new mud-hole
Zack Ryder- Cleanish victory- wins belt.
Beth Phoenix makes Eve cry.
Air Boom! Can't wait for that!

There are my official predictions! I'm confident about all but maybe Beth Phoenix/Eve. It could really go either way with the divas.







Hehe

Swaggler! I love it!

Seriously cannot believe you think 8 face victories are going to happen. Not in a million years. Looking forward to your video.

RE: Atheist Forums WWE Superthread
I think WWE is mostly entertainment and acting.

A lot of what you see happening in the ring is fake and planned out before the fights begin. Sometimes they don't even hit each other, or they only act as if they hit the other person really hard, but the contact to the body might be very harmless. Also, I noticed that sometimes they pound one of their feet on the ground to make a *thud* noise while hitting the opponent in the face. I think the reason for doing this is to create the illusion that they are hitting harder than they actually are.

ElD and alei, do you agree with that?

But still, even if you know that wrestling is fake, there's nothing wrong with watching it just for entertainment. It's almost the same as watching a movie. Tongue

Ummm yeah we know that. But I don't recommend getting into whether or not it's really painful with aleia, since she used to do it.

Clue's in the title: World Wrestling Entertainment Wink

Oh, I'm glad that you guys know that. I was asking because I just wanted to make sure on this. And yeah, the clue is in the title itself.

yeah, we still love it!! lol

I went to the website of the company that employed me to both entertain and train new talent, and all I could find were 3 pics of me training some girls, and one of me mud wrestling. They were all protected, so I had to SS them and crop them out.

On his card, he doesn't talk about Ryder/Ziggler. Apart from that, he predicted the same way as me 5 out of 7 matches. The thing is, there's reasons why the faces can't win most of those matches. Here's why I've gone with my guys:

1. Mark Henry is an unstoppable monster who they've been pushing and pushing. They're going to give him a long run. After all the build up, if they have him lose to Big Show tonight it'll kill the entire momentum. It is possible that Big Show will get a countout or DQ victory, but I will be STUNNED if he walks away with the belt. Whoever they have beat Henry for the belt, it should be someone they have long term faith in, so they can use the victory to catapult them. Probably Sheamus or Daniel Bryan will be the guy here, or Miz or Ziggler if they turn face.

2. The WWE Championship has now changed hands FOUR PPVs in a row. They are going to bury that belt, and ADR if they don't give him the win. Having the LMS stipulation is simply a way to defeat Cena without having him get pinned. It'll probably either be a really ruthless attack for a long time by ADR that keeps him down and makes ADR look like a really dangerous guy, or something devious like burying Cena under something so he physically can't get up. This is probably the biggest lock on the card, I can't see any way they give Cena the win here.

3. Orton will pin Rhodes because he's lost two PPVs in a row now and if WWE lets Orton lose too much then his head will implode. They've made it non-title which is another dead giveaway.

4. Beth Phoenix only just won the belt, so it would be crazy to give it up. This is just to get young and teenage girls tuning in anyway, so who cares.

5. The tag title match could go either way, but Air Boom are the first serious tag team in ages and I really think they should be building around them. So yeah, them.

6. Ryder might not get it this time, I think he may win by DQ or something but I dunno. He's going to win it at some point but having already pinned Dolph a bunch of times they might want to make Dolph look stronger.

7. Sheamus beat Christian last time. Think they want to keep the pair of them going for a bit longer so I see a win for Christian this time out.

8. The Miz/Truth vs HHH/Punk match is hard to call. On one hand, there could be some Laurinaitis related shenanigans that cost HHH/Punk the win, on the other hand Punk has lost 3 PPVs in a row now so they might want to turn that around. My thinking is, go with the odds and assume HHH will put himself over with a win.

There's method in the madness!

Cool. I didn't know that you used to do train like that before.
Why did you fight them in the mud, though? Tongue
