Well, I really hope Benoit wins this one. Then we can put the dreaded Orlando Jordan title reign behind us. Hopefully, with Chris Benoit US champ, he can move on to a feud with Christian.

If Jordan wins at Summerslam...I swear :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant:

OJ's Title reign has lasted way too long.

But at the same time i feel Chris Benoit is better than the US Title. He should challenging for the World Title not the US.

True. But perhaps he can bring some value to the title, at the moment I couldn't care less about the US championship.

Has Benoit ever held the US title?

I don't believe he has...therefore, it would b cool 4 him to hold it.


However, I think OJ will win at SS, setting up a feud between him and Christian...i know they've been having house show matches

Technically I still consider that a WCW Belt, in theory, yes

Orlando Jordan is fairly awesome, IMO, give the guy a chance, the WWE hasn't.

Anyway, I'm not too excited about this match, and I doubt the fans will be either. I don't een think the match is a good idea. I'd be sticking as far away from TGAB rematches if possible. Personally, I'd like to see Doug Basham attack Chris Benoit from behind with a steel chair. Have Booker T or Christian unable to take his place due to the whole "house show fiasco" in which you can have it revealed Booker T was suspended and Christian couldn't make it to the event that night, so Doug Basham is free to challenge Orlando Jordan. Basham wins, boom, instant feud with Benoit in what could be a classic at No Mercy.

Or you could just have Benoit win cleanly, and then have Doug Basham attack him after the match, or on SmackDown!. Give me Benoit vs. Basham, though, damn it!

BTW, Benoit has held the US Title before.

Benoit will win, but it probably won't matter because the US Title is dead just like the Tag Teams and Women's division :(

I have a feeling Christian and/or Booker T will be added to the match.

Unless they want to totally forget Christian walking off on OJ a few weeks back.

I mean they have a perfect situation set up where Christian can be a full fledged tweener. And we haven't had one of those in like, forever.

Chris Benoit will beat OJ guaranteed. This is a 100% gurantee. There is no way that he will lose to him.

It would have been great to build up a feud between Benoit and OJ over the US title. By doing this they get OJ over, and when Benoit does eventually wins, his victory is even sweeter and he gets over more as a conseqeunce.

They started this plan perfectly when they had OJ successful defend at the GAB, but then they decided not to carry on the feud and for some reason involve Christian and Booker. Now the match has been thrown together a week before Summerslam and all momentum from OJ's win at the Bash has been forgotten.

So instead when Benoit does win this Sunday it'll be relief rather than a climatic finish to what could have been a great feud to elevate all three of OJ, Benoit and that shitty US title.

This was stupid. OJ got the win, and then a week later was on Velocity. It was pointless, and not only does OJ suck, but he got nothing out of what should've been the biggest win of his career.

And it wouldn't surprise me if the WWE dropped the Chritsian/Booker involvement entirely, since they seemed to have totally ditched the Big Show/Masters thing that they built for three weeks, which I totally expected was going to pay off with Show breaking the Masterlock at SS.

Carlito-Shelton probably would have been the better way to go or at least something to do with the tag title or cruiserweight scene...

Orlando-Benoit on PPV for a second time is hardly interesting action since it's a feud with no build-up whatsoever...

Guys on RAW like Carlito, Shelton Benjamin, Kane, Big Show, Chavo/Kerwin, Hurricane and Tajiri have no PPV match and practically no direction, even though Hurricane and Carlito are both supposed to be significant title holders...

To make things worse on SmackDown!, Christian was recently buried against Batista for a second time, and he is left off the PPV along with Booker T, William Regal, all the cruiserweights and the tag champions...

I don't remember a PPV without a single tag-team match in a very long time...

Hogan-HBK looks all right... Good build-up at least...

Jericho-Cena is also good in my books because Jericho is at least getting a shot at the gold regardless of the fact that he will probably be buried...

Hardy-Edge isn't interesting to me but there is a lot of heat over this real-life story so I guess SummerSlam seems like a place to capatalize...

Batista-JBL is okay for now although something new would have been better... I strongly think that they will try to better their last performance and put on a good show...

Rey-Eddie in a ladder match is definitely the highlight of the PPV in almost everyone's minds... I'm excited for this one... Good feud, good build-up, good place to end it and ladder matches rarely fail to deliver an exciting show...

Jordan-Benoit is pretty worthless stuff because Jordan could have already lost the title last month and Benoit could have gotten PPV time against Booker, Christian or Regal... :-\

Orton-Taker is okay for me... I like to see how Orton progresses in-ring wise and Taker still puts on exciting shows... Good place to end the feud and give Orton the duke and let both of them move on...

Overall, the PPV is lacking and the direction taken by WWE writers isn't leading to anything significant... More planning is required to keep stories interesting and matches fresh, especially in relation to the title scene and title direction...

That's 7 matches. Why not add one more, Carlito defending the IC title, making it an even 8? I'd prefer Carlito over OJ anyway. But with no build up I guess an IC title match would be meaningless too.

I honestly don't know, or care, what WWE is doing with their US Title. They want to make the title worth less then the cost of making the shitty look belt, fine.

You guys, OJ sucks, but in the ring he isn't bad...let him and Benoit have another go and let's see if somehow the match doesn't improve some this time.

It seems to be like everyone has already written off Orlando Jordan as wortless in the ring. I've heard he's good in the ring, but he just hasn't had a chance to show us.

Right from the get-go, Orlando Jordan was overshadowed by JBL. We only got ONE promo (by JBL I might ad) about why Orlando Jordan joined him. It is no secret that Orlando has had a tough life, so why not join up with a man that can make it easier? Why not have it revealed he sends his second paycheck from JBL to his brothers and sisters? Try and give the guy a character, a personality. Sympathy is a great asset for heels, so why not try and give it to OJ?

At least have Benoit come out and say he knows what Orlando's trying to do with the US Title. Have Chris tell Orlando he's realised he's trying to hold that belt under the radar, and not defend it so the division wears out. Then at Summerslam have Orlando come clean and say that he was trying to be discrete with the belt, not because he wanted to have a long reign with it, but because he wanted the extra paycheck that comes with holding the belt, so he could send it to his poor family members. Try and breathe some LIFE into OJ. It is possible.

It seems that Orlando Jordan and Sylvain Grenier are very similiar. Both guy show obvious talent, both in and out of the ring, yet both guys are given shit for being "green". I wonder if that has anything to do with both being trained by Rocky Johnson?

Seriously. OJ without the title > Benoit not in World Title hunt.

Benoit better win.

I don't think Benoits had a very good summerslam track record. Lost in a title match to the Rock, lost the IC title to RVD, and lost the WH Championship to Orton. But I don't think it'll look to hot for Benoit if he loses to OJ again.

if they wanna build asters up, wouldn't they have show trying his hardest to break the masterlock (for several minutes), but in the end, succumbing to it.

There you have it; show has nearly broken out of the most devasting move in the WWE (supposedly) and Masters has taken down the biggest guy in the WWE.

now that...is how you book matches

But if Big Show can't break out of the masterlock, it basically renders the move unbeatable - and this whole contest would become pointless (or more so). Shelton Benjamin came pretty close to breaking the masterlock, and look how great that treated him. Big Show has already lost enough credibilty over the last couple of years - the last thing he needs it to be made to look weaker than a man half his size.


Back on topic, I agree with The One - I don't give a rats ass what the WWE does with the US Title. They haven't given it one credible feud in it's entire existence (or at least nothing truly noteworthy), nor have they given it credible champions (ignoring Eddie Guerrero - the only one). If Benoit can win the title and give it some positive exposure on Velocity, cool by me. If Jordan retains, then that sucks for Benoit, but fuck the US Title, it doesn't mean shit.

I do like your idea. It wasn't as much of a surprise to me that they put the belt on him when the whole cabinet thing was hot. But so far they haven't done much to help make his US title run credible or to make us care.

at least the US title would be something to fight over and get more TV time for booker, christain, and maybe give them some storylines (though they may be small) to work with
