Should the matches announced on this week's tv shows be classed as spoilers?

Looks a bit 'made up at the last second' to be honest.

Lashley Vs Cena should be ok provided Cena wins.

Punk Vs Nitro will be surprisingly MOTN unless there's a major disaster.

I just don't get how people can say something is going to be bad before seeing it-who knows, the matches might surprise you! But if you don't give it a go, you'll never know...

Lashley/Cena will be great.

Tista/Khali not so much.

Punk/Nitro will suck because Nitro isn't a miracle worker.

Edge/Kane.. could be ok, actually.

Yes, I can confidently say that a ppv featuring Kane, Lashley, The Great Khali and Batista will stink. Or maybe you are right the incredible entertainment for casual fans (who don't buy ppv's) Victoria vs Torrie Wilson might save the show, then again...

Oh and I don't live in the UK.

:lol: As if in any lifetime Nitro is anywhere near Punk's level. You will literally have a go at Punk for anything it seems.

Fair enough mind; I just think there must be a limit to your hatred of Phil Brooks..clearly not.

I would write off every PPV for the next 5 years then...because Cena and Lashley are going to be main event stars pushed the most....

Or you could predict there going to be crap as always....watch the PPV as always, and then whinge about it as always....

You know as well as I do that Lashley, Cena and Batista are going to be around for some time yet, So I cant see the great problem...of course a PPV is going to have one of the three in it, probably all three in one show....So again I dont see the great problem....

You haven't looked at their opponents then have you? Edge is probably the top man right now for carrying opponents to decency. Batista isn't with Edge, look at who he will be facing. Lashley vs Cena is completley dead to me, the two guys I don't care at all about, and judging by LIVE TV reactions, I'm not the only one as far as Lashley goes. So what's left? The unbelievably boring, bland, phoning it in, hasn't had a good match in 5 years, Kane.

Now Sir, I suggest that this is why the show will be hugely missable, and not because Cena, Lashley and Batista are on the show, more to do with the abysmal pairings they are being given. Here's a way to make the show 1,000 better in a matter of seconds.

Edge vs MVP
Flair vs Finlay
Cena vs Kennedy/Orton or King Booker
Lashley vs OVW for 6 more months
Batista vs 14 midgets carrying pitchforks in a loser loses their steroids match.

Lashley v Cena sells this PPV for me. Its a match I expected them to keep for Summerslam, Survivor Series or even Mania. The rest of the card doesnt appeal much. Edge always puts on an enjoyable match and Im sure his match with Kane will be decent and Punk v Nitro should be ok.

I got a challenge for anyone who wants to take it:

Can someone tell me, without posting spoilers, how Kane got from feuding with MVP for the U.S. Title to feuding with Edge for the World Title?

Kane is a good main eventer but has been handled badly for years.

Edge is a class act that could carry the show.

I also dont understand the reason for cena v lashley now but they should put on a good match.

nitro/punk will be entertaining, but ECW need someone else involved in the world title picture with more experience.

As for the kane-MVP (U.S title)- Edge (World title) more armory for the smackdown creative team doubters.

Losing that weeks worth of PPV build has clearly affected the card. Good things its free.
