It's time for another WWE pay-per-view and I'm not really looking forward to it.  For me, WWE PPVs are a time where I meet up with friends and party the night away with wrestling and fun.  But there just seems to be something lacking with these PPVs.  It seems like we are watching the same thing over and over and the creative juices are just not flowing.  So I am forced to ask: Is it worth the money to buy the Over The Limit pay-per-view?

At $54.95 (HD of course, $44.95 for standard definition), this is nothing to sneeze at.  I usually watch each PPV, and after a year it comes out to about $659.40.  Wow, I never realized how much money I was spending on these PPVs.  I wouldn't feel so bad if I were actually  satisfied with the product.  But I am a fan.  I have to watch or I'll miss something...or will I? 

Is this the fourth or fifth time we are seeing the Batista vs Cena matches?  Yes, this is different, it is an "I quit" match.  I'm not sure how different this is since we already saw Batista tap out.  If this is the fourth straight time for these guys to duke it out, then it cost me $219.80 of nap time. 

Why are we watching another Hair vs SES match?  We are saw this last PPV.  Did WWE forget that this was already done.  Maybe it will just be a replay from the last PPV with WWE hoping we don't notice.    

The Big Show and Swagger match is way too predictable.  If Swagger was going to lose, it would have been against Orton at the last PPV.  This match is to show us that Swagger is a "real" champion.  Swagger will win and the kids will wonder why their big and cuddly Big Show lost.  But we all know Swagger is going to win.

The Divas championship is going to be a waste of time.  This is just a filler match and it will not make a difference who wins.  The Divas division stinks and the WWE just doesn't put enough effort to make it worthwhile.  The only good thing about this match is that will give me enough time for a snack and bathroom break.

I have no idea how the Dibiase and R-Truth match is going to turn out.  It will probably be the first match and it will not last long.  Virgil will probably turn on Dibiase and Truth will win. Even if this doesn't happen, the match will be short and disappointing.

The Orton and Edge match might be worth the PPV buy, however, I am still skeptical of Edge.  Edge has not been 100 percent  in the ring with his matches against Jericho, so why am I to believe that it will be better against Orton.  This could go either way, but the match won't be as good as we would like.

We shall see how awesome The Miz and Jericho are on Sunday against the Hart Dynasty.  This is really up to WWE on how they want to shake up the tag team division.  I have high hopes for this match too but if it is a quick win for either tag team, then it may just leave an empty feeling.  

I am not sure if I will buy this PPV or not.  It is a toss up
