Guess he didn't really learn much as Jericho's protege . . .

From the WWE site:

"World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of Raw Superstar Lance Cade as of October 14, 2008. WWE wishes Lance the best in all future endeavors."

What could have been . . .

No Mercy 2008 Results!

I wasn't 100%, like predicted, but close!!! (71%)

Beth Phoenix (c)
vs. Candice Michelle (WWE Women's Championship) (1/1)

Candice Michelle sucks and no one cares that she returned.

HHH (c) vs. Jeff Hardy (WWE Championship) (2/2)

Another "no shit." Hardy is over with the fans, but Triple H is banging the boss' daughter.

JBL vs. Batista (winner becomes #1 contender for the World Title) (3/3)

So it's going to be Batista versus Jericho at the next PPV, I guess. If Batista goes over Jericho, the world will cry.

Chris Jericho (c) vs. Shawn Michaels (Ladder Match for the World Title) (4/4)

Even though Cade interfered, this was still the right move. Michaels is past his prime by like 15 years.

Matt Hardy (c) vs. Mark Henry (ECW Title) (5/5)

The chances of Mark Henry winning this were less than the chance of me buying an Amy Grant album.

Big Show vs. Undertaker (5/6)

Big Show knocked out the Undertaker with a MegaPunch!!! Crazy.

Kane vs. Rey Mysterio (If Rey loses, he must remove his mask) (5/7)

Rey won, but by DQ. Whatever.

Sandman Officially Retires

From his Myspace bulletin-thing:

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I Just Spoke With Sandman & He Wanted Me To Let you All Know That After Speaking With Tommy Dreamer & Having A Long Talk He Has Decided That After 20 + Years In The Pro Wrestling Business That It Is Time To Hangup The Boots & Call It Quits. He Would Like To Thank All Of You Fans That Have Supported Him Throughout His Time In & Around Wrestling. His Last Match Date Will Be Announced In The Coming Weeks. You Can Still Book Him In These Few Weeks. BUT After That He Said He Is Done. He Has A TWO Month Old Child & A Girlfriend To Look After So Now It Is Time To Step Out of The Spotlight.

Thanks A Bunch

Team Sandman

What's up with every word being capitalized? Whatever. Here's a goofy picture of the Sandman (AKA Jim Fullington) for your viewing pleasure:

Official No Mercy 2008 Predictions!!!

Alright, here we go! I've been following wrestling, but with football back and Fall TV getting started, I've been a little slack with the posts.

Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Candice Michelle (WWE Women's Championship)

I've gotta' go with Beth Phoenix here. Although it's already been teased that Santino is talking to another woman on his cell phone, it could just be a red herring. Like, maybe he's planning something for her or something. The possibility exists that Santino will cost Phoenix the title, but these two as champs/lovers is too good a storyline to let go this quickly.

HHH (c) vs. Jeff Hardy (WWE Championship)

HHH, all the way. The fans want Jeff Hardy to win, but he's just not good enough on the mic to be champ. Another bizarre face vs. face match that will most likely just confuse the audience.

JBL vs. Batista (winner becomes #1 contender for the World Title)

This is a toughie, but I'm going to go with Batista, even though he sucks. Possibillity of Michaels vs. Bastita, turning Batista heel or something, could be a cool extension to the Jericho/Michaels fued that started with Batista involved.

Chris Jericho (c) vs. Shawn Michaels (Ladder Match for the World Title)

Another toughie, but I'm going to pick Jericho, because while Michaels probably wants another title run, he's so old and crusty that I'd rather see Jericho keep his amazing heel run going. Could be an insane match, because we all know that Michaels likes to perform.

Matt Hardy (c) vs. Mark Henry (ECW Title)

Matt Hardy will win this. Then, 20 years from now, Mark Henry can tell his kids that he was the ECW Champ from June 29 to September 7, 2008, and they'll laugh behind his back that all he had was the ECW title.

Big Show vs. Undertaker

I predict some sort of screwy finish, because this storyline has just gotten started.

Kane vs. Rey Mysterio (If Rey loses, he must remove his mask)

The best part about this was the talk on Raw about Rey like, "What does he look like under that mask?!" Um . . . he wrestled without it for some time for a little ol' company named WCW!!! Once again, choosing to ignore wrestling's history makes this match fucking retarded. That being said, I'm going to go with Mysterio losing, but some sort of stupidity that causes him to remove his mask, but not letting the audience see his face.

See you later on this week for my percentage of correctness, which I will now predict will be 100%.
