There is also a Extreme Rules Match including Sabu, no opponent has been announced yet.
-------------------------------------------
Current Great American Bash Card
1.World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio Vs King Booker, doesn't the winner of the King of the Ring get a Heavyweight Title match?, I'm guessing Booker loses at the Bash and gets his other Title match at Summerslam.
2.Batista Vs Mark Henry.
3.Undertaker Vs The Great Khali in a Punjabi Prison Match, I personally can't wait for this match, mainly to see what a Pujabi Prison looks like.
4.Triple Threat Match for the US Championship, Bobby Lashley Vs William Regal Vs Finlay.
-------------------------------------------
A man was arrested outside of last Tuesday night's ECW on Scifi tapings for selling bootleg RIP Eddie Guerrero t-shirts.
--------------------------------------------
WWE is working on anthology box sets for Summerslam and the Royal Rumble following the successful sales of the WrestleMania Anthology set last year, i also can't wait for these.
---------------------------------------------
One last thing- I wonder where Smackdown are going with Vito, i mean a guy wearing a dress (not that there is anything wrong with it, even though he is winning), i don't see any potential in that, what do you think?

They had this Diva contest on Raw and it was a total disaster. The announcer forgot his line and he sat there for like 15 seconds of ackward silence.

Then one of the Divas said "Vote for me I would be a Great Deever (instead of Diva)" it was really stupid.

I haven't been watching Smackdown lately. Has Daivari been actually wrestling or does WWE still have him strictly as the manager of Khali? If it is the latter, then it is a shame since he is a terrific athlete in the ring.

Also, why on WWE's website is Agnacio aka Nacho listed on the roster?

Yes Justin, the divas in this contest seem to be rather lame. I suppose that is to be expected with WWE's angle towards womens wrestling.

Last month's topic went quite well. The first post talked about Kane's upcoming possible retirement.

For the first post of this month's thread, we will focus on Trish Stratus.

** The latest news says that Trish will be getting married this September to her long term boyfriend. In addition, Trish was brought back this past Monday just so she could lose cleanly to Mickie James.

Her contract is due to expire sometime next month in August. They say Trish is in talks with Johnny Ace to renew her contract, but with her marriage coming up, and since she just came off her shoulder injury, there's a possibility that Trish will end up taking some time off, like Chris Jericho.

This could be good news for the Women's division, as it would be fresh, with Mickie leading against Melina, Beth Phoenix, and others.

WWE Championship
John Cena defeated Edge by DQ, thanks once again to interference by Lita, Edge retains the title, after the match Cena FU's Edge onto the ECW announce table.
------------------------------------
Despite excessive promotion and the appearance of wrestling icon Hulk Hogan, it looks as though Saturday Night Main Event has come up short once again. Based on fast nationals, the show did an even worse rating than it's first return airing (3.11), doing a 2.65. The final rating will be out in a few days and is unlikely to vary much from this which will be a major concern for WWE.
----------------------------------
Mark Henry was injured in the Six Man Tag Team Match at Saturday Night?s Main Event. He is currently diagnosed with a fractured patella and a possible patella tendon rupture, If he needs surgery he could be out for 4 to 6 months.

The hourly breakdown for the most recent "Saturday Night's Main Event" gives even more reason to question Hulk Hogan's drawing power. The first hour (opened by Hogan) only did a 2.5/5 rating with a 1.3 in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demographic. The second hour posted a 2.8/6 with a 1.6 in the coveted demo.
-----------------------------------------
During today's press conference for the upcoming Great American Bash PPV, the WWE did acknowledge the fact that due to the injury he sustained on Saturday Night's Main Event, Mark Henry will not be wrestling Batista at the PPV.

However, Batista did issue an open challenge to any "sucker" who wants to take him up on it. It will be interesting to see who the WWE comes up with to face Batista at the Bash on such short notice. Batista also joked around saying that Henry was faking his knee injury because he knew he would get his ass kicked on Sunday.
-----------------------------------------
The Great American Bash PPV this Sunday is obviously going to need restructuring given Mark Henry's injury and Batista's lack of opponent.

Dave Meltzer reports that Batista may be added to the Mysterio vs. King Booker title match to make it a three-way, which will also mean the rest of the card will remain unchanged.

There is no heel on SmackDown right now to challenge Batista and it wouldn't make sense for either Edge or Big Show to appear on the PPV as Batista wouldn't be winning either title anyway.
----------------------------------------
Bob Orton, Sr., the patriarch of the famous Orton wrestling family, passed away on Sunday night. Orton, Sr. was the father of WWE Hall of Famer Cowboy Bob Orton and former WWE star Barry ?O? Orton, as well as the grandfather of current RAW Superstar Randy Orton.

According to Randy, his grandfather passed away as the result of a series of heart attacks. ?He had a heart attack at home, and they took him to the hospital where he has another more severe heart attack,? he told WWE.com. ?He had an eight hour surgery that gave him a 20 percent chance to survive; he did, but about 10 hours after the surgery he passed away.?

Tuesday afternoon in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. James Andrews performed surgery on Mark Henry to repair the knee injury Henry suffered in a Six-Man Tag Team Match at Saturday Night?s Main Event.

Following the surgery, WWE doctor Ferdinand Rios spoke with Dr. Andrews, who revealed the full extent of Henry?s injury; Henry tore his patella tendon completely off the bone, and also split his patella (kneecap) completely in two.

Henry?s surgery was successful, but the timeframe for his recovery is unknown. The optimistic prognosis is that he will miss about eight months.
-------------------------------------
It looks as if we have seen the last of the Spirit Squad as a group, they were told that they will be split up on RAW last night.

Undertaker Vs Big Show for the ECW Heavyweight Championship ended in a No Contest.

Pre-Match Rituals

?The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses.?
-Francis Bacon, Sr.

Michael Jordan had one. Wayne Gretzky and Wade Boggs had theirs too. Jordan ? a graduate of the University of North Carolina ? wore his UNC basketball shorts underneath his Chicago Bulls uniform. Gretzky sprinkled baby powder on his hockey stick before games, wore one side of his shirt untucked and refused to get his hair cut on the road. Boggs ate chicken before every game and prior to each at-bat he wrote the Hebrew word Chai ? meaning life ? in the dirt of the batter's box.

Perhaps the epitome of ritualistic behaviors hailed from former Major League Baseball pitcher Turk Wendell. A few of his many eccentricities included: insisting the umpire roll the ball to the mound before an inning began; brushing his teeth and chewing licorice between innings; crouching when his catcher would stand; jumping ? not hopping ? over the baseline when entering or leaving the field; and tossing the rosin bag to the ground with the same force as his fastball.

So, how does this relate to WWE?

The Superstars have the unyielding pressure of performing day in and day out in front of rabid WWE fans who notice every mishap, slip-up or sub-par performance. The immense pressure to succeed looms before every match, and without performing up to the standards of fans, the hours of training and preparation go for naught. This leaves the Superstars to believe that without sticking to their proven routines ? or diverting from the formula that allowed them to achieve success ? their luck may turn for the worse.

To better understand what type of ceremonial customs WWE Superstars have developed during their rise to the pinnacle of sports-entertainment, four of them were asked what they consider to be their pre-match rituals. Below are answers from RAW?s John Cena and Randy Orton and SmackDown?s King Booker and Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms.

RAW Superstar John Cena

"Everybody usually warms up and stretches out. My sh*t is real basic. I say to myself, 'Good luck, be safe and have fun,' because it?s what I love doing."

"I drink other people?s bottles of water, believe it or not. I?ll never open a new bottle of water, but it?s got to be cold and I always smell it before hand so I?m not drinking Vodka or any sort of gimmicked up drink."

"I always knock on wood, and always before I go out there -- and this is something that you can see in the match right before the bell rings every the time because I go out there with a lot of energy, and I?m kind of just rowdy and having fun?but when it?s time to get serious you?ll see me back up against the corner, put my head down, hit the corner, and then I?m coming out swinging. So, those are the things I do every single match."

SmackDown Superstar King Booker

"My ritual is meditation for one hour, and it may start around five o?clock. Then I start with my preparation as far as getting myself together?getting my body ready and warmed up to its peak. That may take jumping rope for 30 minutes straight; that my take doing 300 pushups; that may take doing a couple hundred sit-ups?and that?s just to get myself warmed up for that main event of that main course."

"I top it off with a coupe of Red Bulls. It?s like nitrous oxide kicking the BTZ off? the KING BTZ off ? getting ready to launch, getting ready to do exactly what I have to do, and that?s go out and be the best each and every night."

"Stretching is very, very important. One of my closest comrades, a loyal, loyal subject, Mark Henry, right now is sitting on the shelf just because of his stretching regiment. He should do more of it, and I?m going to talk to him about that as soon as he gets back because I see Mark Henry being a big, big part in the King?s court."

SmackDown's Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms

"I have a certain number of calisthenics that I do, and it?s always been the exact same number. I do the same number of pushups, same number of squats and the same number of high-step running in place; it?s the same number before every match."

"The numbers are different. The number of squats I do differs from the number of pushups and the number of high steps running in place is different from that. But it?s always those same three movements and always the same numbers for those same three."

"It?s (the number) not too high?it?s just enough to get my blood flowing, but not to get me tired. You have to warm up. When guys don?t warm up, they go out and get injured. So it?s a certain number that I do, and it helps me focus. It?s routine and organized."

"I also eat two Reese?s Peanut Butter Cups ? I always have ? before every match. I got it from Lex Luger. I saw him eating Reese?s Cups before a photo shoot one time and, he said it helps his vascularity; the little sugar rush helps the veins pop out, and mainly I like that because I really love Reese?s Cups and that gave me a reason to eat them?and I always eat them. If I don?t find them, I get really flustered. I have to have my Reese?s Cups."

RAW Superstar Randy Orton

"I have a stretching routine that I do. I also try to hydrate and drink a lot of water early in the day so I can get that first sweat going before I go into the ring?almost like I'm reaching my second wind before I go out there. The first five minutes out there is usually the toughest if you haven?t gotten your body warmed up to get in the ring."

"However I go about it, whether it?s jumping rope, stretching, Hindu squats or whatever, I like to warm up and get that second wind kicked up before I step in the ring."

"I?ll find different ways to do it. There are different kinds of core exercises I can do, something to get my heart rate up, then I?ll stretch-out and take some deep breaths and get my lungs opened and stretched out so I can breath out there."
