Bragging Rights has the potential to be a great Pay-Per-View if done right. I don't doubt WWE will put on a good show, but they have had the history of taking something good and messing it up...

So what do we got:

WWE Championship: Randy Orton(c) vs. Wade Barrett w/ John Cena
- There are several ways WWE can go here. Orton can beat Barrett cleanly with Cena just letting it happen. Cena can interfere or Orton's behalf (accident or purpose) and cause Barrett to lose, setting up a 'firing' angle of some kind on RAW. Or they can do the right thing and give Cena his full-fledged heel turn, by attacking Orton.

World Heavyweight Championship: Kane(c) vs. Undertaker (Buried Alive Match???)
- The best thing here would be to have Taker win to end the feud, and give Kane a few months off. If Kane wins, then it may continue the feud at a later date, but I don't see that happening for a third time. This time the 'Dead-man" wins and sets up a new feud with someone else over the title.

7-on-7 RAW vs. Smackdown Match: Team RAW( The Miz, Sheamus, John Morrison, CM Punk, R-Truth, Santino and Mark Henry???) vs. Team Smackdown (Big Show, Edge, Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston and Tyler Reks)
- The teams seem pretty even and Reks was put on Smackdown, basically as Santino's level counterpart. Based on the overall power of the teams, I believe Smackdown should win, with Edge spearing and pinning The Miz. (Set-up from their encounter on RAW last week after Edge was 'traded').

Divas Championship: LayCool(c) vs. Natalya
- This time Natalya should win, but we'll see if WWE does that. They have what they believe is a good thing going with LayCool and they may not want to take the belt off Michelle McTaker.

- These have been announced, but here's a couple of other matches I'd add:

Intercontinental vs. United States: Dolph Ziggler vs. Daniel Bryan
- I personally would not unify the two belts, and I don't believe WWE will, without proper build-up. I believe Daniel Bryan wins this match, forcing Ziggler to tap out. Most would probably want Kaval to be Intercontinental Champ for this match, but it's not the case at the moment.

Unified Tag Team Championship Match: Drew McIntyre and 'Dashing' Cody Rhodes(c) vs. The Hart Dynasty
- WWE will have David Hart Smith turn on Tyson Kidd, and ruin the best tag team they have, so this match will be kind of pointless.

Does this work for everyone?

Undertaker won't be world champ again. His schedule is far too light

Other than that, you probably aren't far from right

Never stopped them from putting the belt on him before!

He'll get the belt to end the feud. I don't think he should hold onto it for long, but I'm going with what I think WWE will do. Personally, I wouldn't give him the belt anymore, because it's time to move on.

If Taker is really going to retire after Wmania I actually expect them to give him the belt. I think Vince will give Taker the respectful sendoff he deserves having him face off against a top WWE guy (I Cena), beat him to maintain the streak, and retire as the champion. I don't know if he'll take the belt as early as Bragging rights but I expect it will be soon enough to start a build to Mania.

This PPV isn't shaping up too badly but since it's "Bragging Rights" I'd like to see more than one Raw vs Smackdown match. They had a perfect opportunity with Edge starting some heat with Miz before changing brands to put them in a inter-brand match but instead they stuck them on the opposing teams.

I think it's possible that they'll do this match, but i hope the unification stipulation isn't in place. It will be a bad move to unify the mid card belts, as WWE will have a huge number of stars beneath the main title picture competing for absolutely nothing! But if WWE are going to unify both belts, then they need to have a proper build up to it as both belts (especially the IC belt) has a lot of history. But as it is WWE, You can expect the unification match to happen as you said.

I wouldn't say "especially the IC belt," both of them are drenched in memories of historic matches over the years. But I agree, it's not the best idea - but it will probably happen. The unification thing would work if they scrapped the whole SD/Raw hing, and jus have everybody competing on all shows. (could even happen at Bragging Rights)

I have the match between the two champs, but I don't have it as a unifying match. I see it like last years match, just a bragging rights theme that the winning champion has.

Thats likely, I was just thinking, if they're thinking of unifying the shows (so to speak) the US/IC unifying match would be the begnning of the end of seperate shows, and the main event of Bragging Rights will be the actual end.

as much as i like Taker, he doesnt need another WH reign. what he needs is a IC title reign. i made a blog about this. whether u agree or disagree, its the only major title he hasnt held that is still active today. if this happens, i think it will help get over a young talent like Dolph Ziggler or Kofi without burying them. (no pun intended) and who knows. if this does happen, if Taker gives them praise backstage for how well they worked, a nice push would probably happen for whoever it is. im just thinking out loud here though.

I don't see any match with Daniel Bryan to be announced until the Monday before Bragging Rights. WWE is prolly keeping him in the wings in case Mark Henry can't make it. Otherwise an angle probably would have been started already with only 3 weeks until the PPV. Have a Nice Day.

I hope bragging rights is good, i hope for more SD/Raw matches

And i hope creative try and create some storylines out of the big team match, not necassarily someone turning again, but maybe someone claiming glory for the team when another eliminates like 3 people?

idk just tossing ideas around

if they do do a match where they unify the intercontinental and u.s title which one will they keep?it will probly be the i.c title because the u.s was a nwa/wcw belt or then again they might just make a whole new belt like they did with the tag team titles.

Firstly, it's not spoilers, it's speculation. :D

Will Undertaker retire this year? Who really knows, anything is possible. One thing I do know for sure is he won't be getting his wife's name tattooed on his neck again! ;) You can pretty much guarantee that a relationship won't last when you do that!
I like the idea of Kane disappearing (give the guy a well earned rest, he's constantly been on the job) and bring him back against 'Taker at Wrestlemania. That's what I want to see anyway.

Before people go recklessly posting about the 'rich history' of the IC title as opposed to 'that old WCW' US title - DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!:mad: The US title is in fact older than the IC title and held by many great names.
