Probably b/c it would've made it seem like he disposed of Kozlov, which probably wouldnt be good for their feud at this point. If he didnt come out during the match, then he would've been there for the celebration


From PWTorch.com:

Torch specialist Greg Parks was in Buffalo, N.Y. tonight for the Armageddon PPV featuring Jeff Hardy's first WWE Title victory.

Parks reports that Jeff Hardy stayed out in front of the fans for about 15 minutes after the main event match ended.

Approximately seven minutes was shown on the PPV, then Hardy stuck around another seven or eight minutes to celebrate with the fans. ECW champion Matt Hardy then came out and celebrated with him.

Parks reports Triple H also stuck around and shook Jeff Hardy's hand in the ring.


New sig coming soon.

I'm going to say Jeff holds onto it until No Way Out, successfully defending against Edge or H at RR while the other one probably wins the Rumble. Although if they do go with Triple H vs. Taker at the Wrestlemania, it wouldnt necessarily need the belt involved, leaving maybe a Jeff vs. Edge TLC?

Any combo of those top 4 guys on Smackdown is a solid matchup though


Gah, I was on my way here to predict Triple H winning the Rumble.

I always miss the PPVs where unexpected people win titles.

I hope if anything comes out of this, Jeff gets rid of the spinner. I don't care if he paints it or carries it around in a Hot Topic bag, every time someone new holds that belt I just get high hopes for it to change.

And risky - I wouldn't expect him to hold it past the Rumble, but kudos to WWE for finally pulling the trigger on him and making him an ever bigger star in the process.

Given Jeff's wellness issues, I'm somewhat surprised they gave him the belt at a PPV when the next one is over a month away. I'm glad to see them pull the trigger on him and get rid of the "choker" label they attached to him, as that really can nix a guy's drawing power if he loses the big one too many times.

Now that they've firmly established him as a top-tier guy after his big '08 push and title win, it's up to Jeff to stay clean and keep his momentum going, and if he screws up again, they'll have to hope he doesn't end up being a major draw for anyone else and have all the time they spent on him be wasted (ala Lashley last year). If nothing else, they turned what seemed like a missable show beforehand into a memorable one, and given people a compelling reason to order the replay.

Edit - An awesome Christian vs. Morrison SvR '09 match I had today.

Part 1:


Part 2:


Part 3:


The lineup for Global Impact II has been announced -

Nothing on paper looks as great as Nagata vs. Angle, but I'm hoping that this still winds up being a fantastic TV special/DVD like last year's was.

Well, that's amazing. My former fav wrestler wins the WWE Championship in my Hometown. If this was 2002-03 I wouldve been way more excited. Still, it was an awesome show live, and beat the living snot outta GAB 05 (the last PPV we had, and my last WWE live event).

On a side note; kids fucking love Cena. Like a lot.

Yep I got a feeling that Jeff is just a transistional champ on the way towards jobbing to Triple H at the Rumble to add to how many times Hunter has won the title. Either that or Jeff jobs it out at Mania after Triple H either wins the Rumble or wins some kind of number one contenders match.

New sig coming soon.

Hardy winning the title is a surprise. I'm at least shocked that they bothered to give the belt to Edge just to hotshot it to Hardy a month later. 'Course, if HHH is as high on Hardy as has been reported, I guess it's not too hard to believe - though I'm amused that HHH didn't take the pinfall.

Cena over Jericho is a joke, espescially since the Cena kicking out of the Codebreaker was treated as the spot of the night but Jericho kicking out after an FU is no big deal. Superman indeed.

Kinda bummed that Punk needed the angle of an "injured" Rey to win the IC belt.

It's nice to see somebody new as champ but I know it's not going to last long. Better than seeing more of Edge as champion. I thought the PPV was real lame up until the Jericho/Cena match. The main event matches were good though.

I'm surprised so many of you didn't see this coming. With Jeff being in the main event scene for several months straight and the constant references to him "never winning the big one" (even Matt cut a promo saying he wasn't sure Jeff could ever do it) it's been pretty clear that he was going to get the belt at some point. The length of it playing out, though, almost certainly had to do with making sure he was going to stay clean. I agree with most of you that it won't be a particularly long run, 2-3 months tops. Compared to Raw this last year, though, that would be Sammartinoesque. Just as a reminder for Jeff...

"Mr. Hardy, package from RVD."

Don't be stupid, Jeff.

I like the thread, especially since it uses the gif I posted. The JKO needs to be memorialized.

But, regarding the other part of the title- (and this has nothing to do with Chase lest he or anyone else may think such things) Why do people spell pro wrestling as "pro-wrestling"? There's something about the superfluous hyphen that irks me.


I find your use of the term "superfluous" superfluous.;)

I suspect Jeff will retain once at a PPV then drop it at the following PPV. Probably to Triple H. :bomb:

It would be neat if Christian returned and made an impact in the WWE title scene. I would dig it if he did a run-in and helped Edge regain the title or ran interference to cause Edge to lose an opportunity at regaining the title, or perhaps some other sneaky option.

That is, if Christian returns to WWE.

You already know who Hardy is going to lose the belt to as long as he doesn't get injured:

Did Edge successfully defend the belt at any PPVs, or did he just win it/return at the last PPV and immediately drop it at Armageddon?

(I remember when I could go one-for-one with this kid in high school for trivia, and now I can't even remember when Edge won the belt, let alone who was, say, the WWE World Champion in June of this year. Or July. Whatever.)

And don't blame me for screwing up the WWE title names; it's the company who has switched them on shows as well as given them equally uninspired and blase names. I think we need to focus on "spinner" and "wcw title." That makes sense to me, anyway.

After a quick wiki check, Edge successfully retained his belt at:

- Summerslam '06
- Judgement Day '07
- One Night Stand '07
- Vengeance Night of Champions '07
- Rumble '08
- No Way Out '08

No no no, I mean just this past reign. The last PPV was Survivor Series, right? Isn't that when Edge returned?

EDIT: http://www.wwe.com/i...wechampionship/

Yup. Triple H's reign: just shy of 7 months. Edge's reign: 3 weeks to the day. Jeff Hardy's reign: however long it takes to face off against Kozlov.

EDIT2: Did you know, the spinner title has changed hands only 3 times this year? 1st from Orton to HHH in April, 2nd from Triple H to Edge 3 weeks ago, and 3rd to Jeff Hardy last night. The WCW title has changed hands 8 times this year, OTOH.

Mike Bell, a former WWE jobber in the 90s and sporadically until 2003, has passed away of unknown causes at this time. He was 37.

He had a successful Indy career but is most famous for working as enhancement talent for the WWF in the 90s, working Raw on several occasions. One of his more famous moments came when he was wrestling Perry Saturn on C show Metal. Perry became pissed at several botched moves and legitimately dumped bell on his head on the outside and then rammed him in to the steel steps.

Bell was most recently featured in his brother's steroid documentary "Bigger Stronger Faster," where it was revealed he suffered from depression and had once tried to commit suicide.



Here's the match. The bump out of the ring happens around the 2:30 mark. You can hear Bell say "...right on my head".

I just watched Bigger, Stronger, Faster a few weeks back on XBL Netflix. Decent documentary, but fairly superficial in terms of an actual focus on steroids, and most geared towards steroids as an intrinsic part of American culture. Seeing Mike Bell move out west at the end of the flick for the chance of getting seen/getting a shot with the WWE was just sad, because everyone knew that he stood no chance. Even himself to a degree.

Sad for him and his family.

I wonder who's there in the real cover?

Looking back, Saturn didn't really go too hard on Bell in that match. He wasn't particularly kind to him, but what he did was nothing like what a cat like Bradshaw does when he wants to assert his status in the company.

I'm not justifying it. I'm saying that the reaction was overblown, and his punishment absurd, given that "punishment" is modified by your position in the company, and not what it is that you do to harm someone.

If you intentionally Fuck someone up, it should be your ass. But it's not if your name is JBL.

Was the mop punishment? It's hard to tell sometimes when people are saddled with things to punish them (black and yellow polka dots) and when people are saddled with shitbag gimmicks that creative really thinks will get over (take your pick).
