Tonight is the night!
Over the Limit will be shown live on pay-per-view in just a few hours. The wait has been just three weeks, but it has seemed like a lot longer.
For a few talents in WWE, there is a lot to prove tonight. For one reason or another, they have a lot of pressure on them to deliver.
Who are they? Let's find out!
Tonight is the night!
Layla is the Divas Champion.
She has held the title before, but this is different.
The division is all but gone right now. Her and Beth Phoenix will be carrying the torch on Sunday night. While the world waits for Kharma to return, it is up the Layla to deliver a good performance.
Sheamus is now hanging around the big names.
As he climbs the ladder to success in WWE, his opponents are going to get tougher and tougher. While Alberto Del Rio may not mean much, his other two challengers do.
As World Champion, he faces Chris Jericho and Randy Orton on pay-per-view. He did a nice job in 2010, but it's time for him to step up even more.
Daniel Bryan will be competing for the WWE Title on Sunday.
The man is great inside the ring. Nobody will ever take that away from him.
He even helped a lot with Smackdown ratings. I have long given him tons of credit for the Blue Brand having a lot of intrigue Friday nights.
Sadly, that has not worked out well on Monday nights. We all know about his rating segments losing viewers, so this will be a chance to prove those casual fans wrong.
Also, it will be another "test" to see how all of those "Yes!" chants are doing. North Carolina hosts the event tonight, so they are definitely a wrestling city.
How the crowd reacts will be very interesting...
How is this man going to wrestle John Cena?
I have no idea. It is sure to be filled with crazy antics, but I want to see how well Johnny Ace does inside the ring. He has wrestled in the past, so let's see how he does in 2012.
Some may laugh at this, but if he does, well...
...who knows when his next match will take place?
This success or failure of this pay-per-view is on him (and Daniel Bryan).
One day, John Cena will be gone. Then what is Punk going to do at the top of the Red Brand?
He will, eventually, have to carry an event. Buys and ratings have to be taken accounted for one of these days. You can't "pass the buck" forever folks.
Truth be told, TLC in December did a fine job on pay-per-view. With no Cena, Punk carried that show. The numbers were not spectacular, but they had better numbers than a lot of other events.
This month is a different story.
As I have said many times, the only way to support Punk on top is by purchasing the show. I really hope his fanbase is as loyal as he thinks. When the buys are released in a few weeks, we will see if he truly is the "best in the world..."
