Tomorrow is the next WWE pay per view; “Backlash” is just a little too close to Wrestlemania for my wallet comfort. 

Sure, I would love to see Kane kick the snot out of what’s his name with the sharpie marks on his hands. Still I doubt this cause I know they are pushing what’s his name hard. So Kane, as he always does will somehow figure out how to make the guy with the brief case look good.

I always enjoy seeing Shane McMahon in the ring. But I will wait till the next PPV to see what looks like Shane vs. Bastisa feud.

There’s always the joy of seeing Orton beaten up. Yet for me, Orton is never worth laying out the cash ever.

Edge and Cena both are great and always entertaining. Still, as their promos have been pointing out three years—the thrill is gone. 

So my wallet curled up in my pocketbook and sighed in relief.  Dare I tell it, just when it thought it was safe.  I see the latest WWE “Backlash” commercial on Comcast late Friday night and the only wrestler still I just hand over the cash to see, The Undertaker.  More than a third of the ad that aired focused on what happened to Taker at the hands of the Big Show on this past Smackdown.  Showing the punch to the back of Taker’s head it was clear it was from Smackdown and not stock footage.   

I know there is no match listed—no hints or rumors of a match—yet.  One wonders if they will have a surprise match added in the end. 

I think I just heard my wallet whimper.
