So as I go and remortgage my house to buy the third WWE pay-per-view in seven weeks, Over the Limit already has five matches announced:
- Kofi Kingston & R-Truth (c) vs Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger (Tag-Team Championship Match).
- Leyla (c) vs Beth Phoenix (Divas Championship Match).
- Sheamus (c) vs Randy Orton vs Chris Jericho vs Alberto Del Rio (World Heavyweight Championship Match).
- CM Punk (c) vs Daniel Bryan (WWE Championship Match).
- John Cena vs John Laurinaitis.
- The Miz vs Brodus Clay
- Santino Marella vs Cody Rhodes (Champion vs Champion match)
- Ryback vs Tyson Kidd
Santino and Cody Rhodes have been having a war of words on Twitter recently, and I wonder if creative are going to utilise this. It's even possible this could be the match that breaks down the draft between the brands if both championships go on the line, lets be honest the brands don't really mean much anymore with a Supershow every other week. Add in the fact that Cody Rhodes is a fast rising star, and Santino is one of the most over faces in WWE right now, and this could be a very interesting match.
One of the matches I am looking forward to most though is the tag team match between Kofi/Truth and Dolph/Swagger. The tag team division has been awful for the past year or two, and while it will never be the same as it was when teams like The Dudley Boyz, Edge and Christian and The Hardyz were battling it out, it's good to see something is happening with it again. It's even starting to get a storyline with Epico and Primo involved. My predicition is this match will see Mason Ryan interfere somehow, and Epico and Primo will challenge the winners.
The Diva's division has also been stale recently, but will Over the Limit see the return of Kharma? It certainly needs something to kickstart interest in it again.
Add to the mix a fatal four way, and a match for wrestling fans everywhere in Daniel Bryan v CM Punk and Over the Limit may actually be worth remortgaging the house.
Which leads us on to the main event. On paper this seems a ridiculous match, the Raw and Smackdown GM vs the face of the WWE. But credit where credit is due, the creative team have built this match up in exactly the way they wanted to. I really want Cena to win, and put that pompous, arrogant, raspy voiced fool in his place. We all know there will be interference (Lesnar? Tensai? Big Show?), but creative have worked the character of Laurinaitis so well and got the desired results, we want to see him lose.
So while the WWE have only had a limited amount of time to build up any feuds, there are so many questions we all want to see answered that I can see this being a successful show.
