    Well Dusty did invent WarGames but a PG version would totally suck.

    I highly doubt they'll do a War Games gimmick with a Hell in A Cell PPV coming up straight after that.

    Hopefully, I never want to see a WWE version of WarGames.

    If D-Bry wins the strap will he be the first person to ever win the title at 3 consecutive ppvs??

    Come to think of it is he the first person to ever win it at 2 consectutive ppvs?

    Yokozuna won it at WrestleMania IX and King Of The Ring 1993, though that was in the era where PPVs were several months apart

    How about Punk at MitB 2011 and then again at Summerslam? Granted Del Rio cashed in so he didn't leave with the title, but he did win the WWE championship on consecutive PPVs?

    Would love to see nobody win the title and get a wwe title tournament building to survivor series or even do a tournament in one night like survivor series 98. Surely a way to elevate someone its not been done in a while.

    Randy Orton is the real deal. I hope he crushes your little goat faced hero.

    Yes!
    Yes!

    So, they've added four new matches to the card- Curtis Axel vs. R-Truth for the IC Title, AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella for the Divas Title, Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow on the pre-show, and Goldust & Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns with the stipulation that, if Goldust & Cody Rhodes win, then they will get their jobs back, but if they lose, then Dusty Rhodes loses his job.

    Right off the top, I have to take immediate issue with WWE burying Dolph Ziggler even further by putting him in a random pre-show match against Damien Sandow. Outside of the fact that they apparently hate Ziggler with a passion, it does not make any sense whatsoever to just completely throw out Dolph's feud with Dean Ambrose for no apparent reason. How WWE refuses to push Dolph Ziggler is infuriating and mind-boggling to me.

    I love the fact that, just because Brie Bella got engaged to Daniel Bryan, that makes her the #1 Contender for the Divas Title. I guess getting engaged can do wonders for your WWE career.

    I really hope R-Truth gets the Intercontinental Title. Of course it won't happen, but it would be nice. As expected, the Curtis Axel experiment has proven to be a failure. Curtis Axel is pretty much nothing like his father in the least. He has no charisma, very little in-ring ability, and cannot draw heel heat to save his life. Axel has been given more than enough chances in the WWE. He should have been let go ages ago.

    I honestly can't see this Rhodes angle going on past Battleground (at least not the current incarnation of the angle) and I can't see them just "firing" Dusty Rhodes and keeping Cody off of TV either, so I see a Rhodes win happening here. Too bad it's not for the tag titles.

    The Rhodes angle is just part time and and off shoot of the main story line

    WWE are pushing the pre-show hard. Being on it isn't a burial.

    I feel I need this to just copy and paste every month when they make the card and someone says "Why are they burying _____ on the pre-show?!?!"

    I'm pretty sure I said the exact same thing for Night of Champions.
