It's been a busy week around the Ross Ponderosa here in Oklahoma. dodging tornadoes and selling plenty of "Q" while doing my homework for this Sunday's PPV in Chicago known as Judgment Day.
Here are a few predictions and slow, smoked random thoughts:
The Quiznos TV ads where the oven is talking to the young, male cook are spooky. Somebody might have been standing too closer to the smoker when those ads were created.
According to WWE.com, Shad of Cryme Tyme fame allegedly has the "hots" for Eve of Friday Night SmackDown fame. Wow, now that's a revelation considering most healthy men do have more than the casual "wondering eye" (no offense to Jack Elam) to the former Southern Cal coed.
Melina will not grace the cover of any milk cartons nor is she living in Arizona under an assumed name as the WWE Women's Champion will make an emotional return to Friday Night SmackDown this week, and will compete in tag team action.
I watched an old tape, from the mid '70s of a young Bruiser Brody and the rugged Brody and SD's Mike Knox do have some of the same tendencies.
John Morrison did a nice job on commentary Thursday night on "WWE Superstars" on WGN America. Morrison has the chance to be one of a handful of potential "break through" stars on SmackDown in 2009.
Morrison was the one with the flowing, long locks, while yours truly was wearing a black hat, and the other guy, TG, had the head full of hair gel.
Batista will not win the WWE Title Sunday at Judgment Day. Want to know why? Just keep reading.
John Cena is obviously not 100 percent physically ready to compete in Chicago against a near 500-pound mammoth of a man which leads me to lean to a Big Show victory against Cena this Sunday. Bottom line, as Stone Cold used to say, is that I don't see Cena leaving the All State Arena in good shape Sunday evening a few minutes past supper time.
I could tie in Judgment Day with a Last Supper reference here, but I choose not to go there ... thank you very much.
Christian vs. Jack Swagger for the ECW Title should be an exciting bout that I see Swagger winning and regaining his ECW Title. Christian can retain if he can confuse and out quick the young Oklahoman, but few in WWE can handle Swagger in a straight up wrestling bout. I'm looking forward to watching this match from our plushy seats at ringside complete with tepid, bottled water.
