My usual "Stars in Progress" is kind of pointless on the day of a WWE pay per view because a star's progress will most certainly change tonight if they're on the event. As a result, I'd like to use this space to share my own preview and predicitions for the big show tonight.


I want to first give props and respect to Big Show for making me even remotely interested in this match. Sheamus' current character simply doesn't register with me, so I know he's not the one I credit for the limited success of this feud.

I think Big Show could absolutely have one last run on top of the company if it were left up to his abilities alone, but that's not how it goes in WWE. You need help from Vince and Creative. And they simply view him as the biggest put-over man in the business. Literally.

Whether it's Big Show or a Dolph Ziggler cash-in, I absolutely expect the title to leave HIAC with someone new. My gut told me two months ago, and I then told the world via my Voice of Wrestling shows (which means it's documented), that it would be Ziggler cashing in to win his second World Championship. However, EVERYONE has since started predicting that online. And knowing Vince, he'll likely pull the plug on it for that reason alone, regardless of whether it was the original plan. Or even the best one.

But I digress. If Big Show wins it, it will be short-lived (but not necessarily tonight). If Sheamus wins it, it will be short-lived (as in tonight).
