Now to the under-card, which features a "Money in the Bank" ladder match. Carlito, CM Punk, Shelton Benjamin, Mr. Kennedy, MVP, and Chris Jericho will all be vying for the no strings attached title shot that comes along with winning this match. Before Chris Jericho recently won the intercontinental belt, he was the odds on favorite. But now it looks like Mr. Kennedy will take this match home. Why was Chris Jericho just given the intercontinental belt you may ask? Jeff Hardy failed his second drug test with the WWE, which means Hardy is suspended for 60 days without pay. One more failed test and Hardy will no longer be employed by the WWE. Hardy's push is all but done. This is a sad story considering how well the fans were receiving him recently.
Shawn Michaels will be taking on Ric Flair in a match that stipulates if Flair loses, he must retire. Look for this to be the end of the road for The Nature Boy. Flair has had an awesome run as a singles competitor, but this will be the end. Look for Flair to show up on TV from time to time as a manager or perhaps even an announcer. Finlay takes on JBL in a Belfast Brawl match-up. There is not much to look forward to in this match. JBL will get the win and continue the feud. Everyone needs to respect how well Finlay has looked considering how old he is (50-years-old), but there's not much hope for him to win here. There is a 24-man battle royal to see who faces Chavo Guerrero for the ECW title. I am not going to waste much time on this, because the WWE won't. The Sixshooter's guess is that somehow, Big Daddy V wins this, then the belt. Batista takes on Umaga in a "My Beast is Better Then Yours" match. Look for Umaga to win and then move on to "Smackdown."
Candice Michelle and Maria will be taking on Beth Phoenix and Melina. If all goes well, they will be out there for five-minutes at best. Look for Candice Michelle and Maria to win this match via some sort of outside help. Now to the most intriguing part of "Wrestlemania 24" - The Big Show vs. Floyd "Money" Mayweather. The Big Show did not come back to be flattened by a non-wrestler. So how does the WWE spin this so the Big Show still looks strong? It's very simple if you look through the eyes of the Sixshooter. Picture this: Floyd Mayweather is supposedly getting paid $20 million for this match (in reality $2 million), so why did the WWE tell everyone how much he was making?
The answer is simple - he is going to pay off wrestlers to help him get the win. The Sixshooter's guess is at least 10 wrestlers will get involved to get Mayweather the win, and then the Big Show goes on a three-brand rampage, ripping apart the entire WWE for the next several months. Sting will make his return to TNA next month at their "Lockdown" PPV. Sting will be on the Christian captained team in Lethal Lockdown, a four-on-four team match-up. Kevin Nash and "Survivor" star Joel "the Truck" Anderson are their rumored partners. Speaking of "Survivor," TNA has officially signed Johnny Fairplay to be Anderson's manager.
Former WWE Superstar Bobby Lashley's no-compete clause is up in May. Lashley has been working out to become a mixed-martial-arts performer, but sources backstage in TNA expect him to sign on with the company. Kurt Angle brought Lashley into the business, so it is a perfect match. That is all for this month Sixshooter-a-holics. Remember, as the great Jesse Ventura once said, "Wrestling is like a ballet, just with violence."
