    If you k now this to be true, pleeeeease no spoilers. These threads are meant to speculate what "might" happen and what has happened. Or at leat use the spoiler tag. For me, I like to be surprised. I don't want to know who is coming back and when. Or who is going to be in future fights until they unfold live.

    Man it's the WWE. Crap changes daily. It's not a fact. It's just what one guy told me. It is just speculation.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I think I'm just so annoyed at WWE that the only thing left in it for me is the element of surprise. I get what you're saying. I have no doubt if people know things that are set in stone, they'll post as a spoiler.

    5-12) whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever, Payground, Battleback.

    Survivor Series used to be consider part of the "Big 4" but they have just lost the mojo of that PPV big time.
    I still don't understand why they ever got rid of King of the Ring.

    Re: WWE Battleground

    To be fair, I've heard like 6 ideas on what's going to be happening at Battleground/Summerslam/Wrestlemania.

    Typically, the WWE doesn't let these ideas slip past them. The only news that usually slips out of their hands is when a wrestler comes back like we saw with Jericho and AJ

    They did a lot of work to keep jericho under wraps. The deal came together Friday. They had Jericho fly into Boston, Then drive all the way to Conneticut (Not really far). Then they told production crew to get his music ready. He stayed under cover until the production meeting. WOuld not even enter the arena until the whole crowd was already inside the building so nobody would see him.

We'll hear for the next three weeks about how Cena doesn't even have to be involved in the decision to lose his title. We'll hear about how Cena's a huge underdog, and the odds are really stacked against him. But in the end, Cena will come out on top. Because Cena.

    And we've got the battle royal for the IC belt, which will be populated by a bunch of people with no hope of winning, and maybe two or three that have a legit shot.

    They've got a lot of work to do in the next three weeks to give me a reason to buy this PPV.
    Wyatt - Jericho (and potentially Miz) and Wyatt Family -Usos should be entertaining. But yeah, that's all im interested in at the moment.

    That's awesome. It was pretty fun to see him come back, but he's come and gone a couple times in the last couple years, so its lost a little effect.

    And it's an easy way to drum up interest and provide some structure to the booking during those down periods in WWE's schedule. I get that MITB has kind of taken over that June slot that used to be KotR's, but why couldn't you move one or the other to do a different month?

    Absence still makes the heart grow fonder. Just another reason they should cycle the roster to give everyone a 3-month or so sabbatical every year.

    I think it would be fantastic to give everyone 3 months off per year except maybe the champion would have to wait. It would keep the injuries down. Keep the characters fresh. Plus it would be great everytime someone came back.

    They could make July king of the ring that way you have 3 solid ppv in a row (mitb, kotr, and ss)

    I'm sure you could stagger it so it wasn't a strict schedule. Make sure all your top guys are back for Mania, have guys in reserve that can be called in if injuries occur, etc.. It just makes a lot of sense.

    Micheal had a spoiler posted close to that before. I don't want to type what it was because it was in the spoiler tab for a reason, if you want to find it it's back in the Money in the Bank thread
