WrestleMania Money In The Bank

so the word is that the WWE is considering bringing back a 'Money in The Bank' ladder match for this years WrestleMania.

As a fan of the MitB matches, this doesn't seem like a bad idea to me. Interestingly though there have been rumors that rather than have a mixture of up and comers & former main eventers in the running for the suitcase, the WM match may only be competed by former champions.
This got my thinking about which former champs don't currently look to have a WrestleMania match set and  i've managed to come up with these 6 superstars who i think we can all but guarentee will be announced as the participants in the 'Money in the Bank' match...

The Return of The Undertaker...and His Wig!

Well The Undertaker has come back to our TV screens just in time to build up a huge WrestleMania rematch with his old buddy Trips...
Obviously the wrestling world was pretty excited about the Deadman's most recent return but something else also seems to be drawing a great deal of attention...

Was the Dead Man wearing a wig???...

no doubt it kinda looks like it, and with all the talk of 'Taker chopping off his locks while on his hiatus from the ring last year, i just think him going and getting standard extensions is just a bit of a missed opportunity...
If i could have had anything to do with it here's a few other hair style options i woulda tried to get 'Taker to consider for his big return...

Team Bring It...

Team Bring It

talking of WrestleMania, although i'm far from a Cena hater, i'm still firmly in the camp of Team Bring It.
with that being said i haven't been too keen on any of the Team Bring It t-shirts made available so far, so i'm gonna get my iron on transfers out and make a few of my own, taken from The Rock's best film role to date...

Rodriguez Fever

how can you not love this guy?!
(oh and i'm not just now hopping on his bandwagon...check out my sign from last year's WrestleMania...)
can the WWE hurry up and make this man a t-shirt already?!!!

Lizard's Licking Likelihoods - UFC 124 Predictions

Nugget Feature - Lizard's Licking Likelihoods - UFC 124 Predictions
Sheeeeee's back!
After a little break from reading the future the Psychic Lizard returns for the latest UC pay per view.
Although only currently sporting a 50% accurate record, the Psychic Lizard has polished up her crystal ball and scrubbed off any dirty spots that may have led to her inaccuracies. The Liz is pretty confident that starting with UFC 124 she'll turn it all around and begin an incredible run of correct picks. Who knows maybe a correct guess here will she the mystic reptile go on to predict 100% correctly throughout 2011.
The main event of UFC 124 & the fight that Lizzy Steamboat will be predicting the outcome of is the Welterweight title clash between opposing coaches of the Ultimate fighter season 12, Georges St.Pierre and Josh Koscheck. 
Kos has been running his mouth and trying to get under the skin of GSP during the build up to this fight, but does Liz think he has done enough to upset and throw off the game of one of the top pound for pound fighters in the world, GSP?
The way the lizard makes her decision is the same as always, 2 pieces of food are chosen to represent each fighter. They are placed in the reptile enclosure and whichever food is eaten first will be the victor of the fight.
I had wanted to use fruit fitting to the fighters names for these predictions but as Liz only has a select diet, Georges St.'Pear' could sadly not be used. 
Instead we go back again to the trusty apple and grape pieces to see who will be coming out victorious and with title gold around their waist...
