Power 25 du 12 Avril 2008
|This Week||Superstar||Last Week|
The Academy has voted unanimously that the World Heavyweight Champion is No.1. Undertaker has been on a roll since WrestleMania XXIV.
Though it was a bad week for Orton, he is still the reigning WWE Champion. With three opponents now vying for his title at Backlash, two weeks from now might be a totally different story.
The Game certainly lived up to his moniker on Monday. He baited Raw GM William Regal to allow him to earn a spot in the WWE Championship match at Backlash. He then did just that by pinning the champion.
Punk is carrying around the MITB briefcase, but has not let any of us know his intentions. The Straightedge Superstar did let us know that he isn't taking a break though, as he beat The Miz on ECW.
The Animal isn't holding back any of his opinions of Shawn Michaels. The question, however, remains: Is Batista right to resent HBK for retiring Ric Flair, or did Michaels do the right thing at 'Mania?
Either way you look at it, Michaels will have to live with what happened at WrestleMania XXIV for the rest of his life. Is he prepared to deal with people like Batista for the rest of his life, as well?
The Rated-R Superstar took the week off with his fiancee, Vickie Guerrero, at a spa. He'll need all the relaxation he can muster with an Undertaker rematch on his horizon.
Though he has failed to regain the WWE Championship twice since returning at the Royal Rumble, Cena earned himself another chance at Backlash. Is the third time a charm?
The Glamazon is easily the most dominant Women's Champion in a long time. She has faced many challengers and the title is still around her waist. This week, Maria proved to be yet another stepping stone.
Four was just too many for the Big Red Machine. During a contract signing for the ECW Championship rematch at Backlash, Kane was ambushed and put through a table by Chavo and his cohorts.
Jericho may not have been in action, but he did host an incredibly heated Highlight Reel. The attention was not on him though, as he seemed to play the antagonist in a Michaels-Batista debate.
It should come as no surprise that Chavo likes to play with a stacked deck. The former ECW Champion made that obvious by adding to the "familia," who helped put the Big Red Machine through a table.
Who wouldn't want a jar of dirty water, a goat, a chicken and a bottle of scotch? Big Show, that's who. Unfortunately for The Great Khali, his peace offerings only fueled Show's fire.
With his son Hornswoggle back in good health, the Belfast brawler returned to SmackDown and made easy work of Matt Striker. There might have been some shenanigans involved, but we won't tell.
The Samoan Bulldozer may not have brought home the title of brand supremacy at WrestleMania XXIV, but he proved on Raw that it doesn't mean he is any less dominant in the ring.
MVP had a front row seat to Matt Hardy's win on SmackDown. The heat has turned up on this renewed rivalry and the "Franchise Playa" can't be cool with that.
In uncharacteristic fashion, another week goes by with no word from the Green Bay loudmouth. Did missing out on the Money in the Bank briefcase hurt his pride more than we thought?
The only gold to appear on ECW this week was the ECW Championship around Kane's waist. Shelton might be reworking his game plan after two straight losses to the Straightedge Superstar.
Last week's R&R seems to have done Kofi some good. The Jamaican Superstar hops back on track with a win over one of the boys from the Wrong Side of the Tracks: Domino.
Hardy continues to impress since his return. MVP had better watch out, because Hardy has made his intentions known -- he wants the United States Championship.
Kozlov bursts onto the P25 with an impressive win on SmackDown. His cold, ruthless ring approach might see him quickly become a superpower in WWE.
Khali showed his noble side this week, giving Big Show some traditional peace offerings. Show gave the Punjabi giant an offering of his own -- a one-punch knockout.
With two losses in one night, the self-made millionaire's stock is dropping fast. No wonder nobody is willing to listen to what he has to say.
