|No haters please. Many of us know what happened last year and then people betting on this got hairy and then people who like WWE are "losers" and apparently that's supposed to hurt us in some way? Anyway...here are the lines.

The Rock (initial ruling) +115
John Cena (initial ruling) -155
The Rock (end of broadcast ruling) +180
John Cena (end of broadcast ruling) -260
Everything is "end of broadcast ruling" from now on.
Triple H +400
CM Punk -130
Chris Jericho -110
Daniel Bryan +145
Cody Rhodes -120
Big Show -120
So here are my takes on this...
Rock v Cena
The first thought is that Cena is going to win just like when The Rock beat Hogan in a "passing of the torch" type of situation. But now there are talks about this being a 3-part series with the final match at next year's Wrestlemania (The Rock is confirmed to be a part of that). And then it seems like a sure thing that The Miz will get involved in this match in some capacity, which would lead to them saying it wasn't fair and make them have a second match which would be won by the loser of this match and then, next year, have Cena win. So I could really see Cena win this because of the interference by The Miz so it seems like The Rock didn't lose anything and got screwed, keeping his cred. But that's my view on in.
Triple H v Undertaker
Taker is going 20-0 at Wrestlemania...there's no doubt who will win this one.
CM Punk v Chris Jericho
Jericho will be going on tour with Fozzy this Summer so he won't be a good champ to have around. And it doesn't make sense for him to win to be honest. CM Punk is the "big guy" right now also so I can't see them friggin with that.
Daniel Bryan v Sheamus
Well...if CM Punk wins the title...Daniel Bryan, the heel, should still be the champ, right? Something tells me that Sheamus should be the champ, though, so this one is tough for me to call. Shouldn't this Daniel Bryan experiment over with already? I hear they plan on doing a storyline between him, AJ and the Bellas. Can he do that as the champ? Is it easier to do it as the champ as opposed to looking to become the champ? Or does he just fall out of the title picture? Tough one.
Cody Rhodes v Big Show
The Big Show as an intercontinental champ just doesn't make sense. But I can't read into this one.
I can't wait to get this discussion started. Hope to see Kapono and Shango around as well as others who were involved in this last year (in a positive way).
Keep it cool, fellas.
