    WWE Wrestlemania 28 - Team Laurinaitis vs Team Long


    Desperate times, desperate measures. With tensions running increasingly high between SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long and Interim General Manager of Monday Night Raw John Laurinaitis, the WWE Board of Directors was forced to take a drastic step. The nine-member panel released a letter stating that sole control of both Raw and SmackDown would be decided in a 12-Man Tag Team Match – Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny – at WrestleMania.

    Relations between the GMs began to deteriorate at Elimination Chamber when Laurinaitis announced his intention to govern both shows. Not surprisingly, Long took umbrage to the overt power grab and told Laurinaitis so in no uncertain terms, both in person and on Twitter, where @GMSmackDown and @WWERawGM have been strident in their criticism of each other.

    In an attempt to determine who might perform better as dual GM, one week before the Board released the letter, it allowed Long to run Raw while Laurinaitis took control of SmackDown. The one-upmanship was fierce with Long and Laurinaitis even competing against one another in a match that saw Teddy roll up Laurinaitis, a ring veteran, for the win. The Board decided that both men had performed their duties above expectation and that, to determine control of both shows, Long and Laurinaitis must each choose a six-man squad to compete against one another.

    On Raw SuperShow this past Monday, the rosters began to form, with Long naming U.S. Champion Santino Marella as his captain, while Laurinaitis selected David Otunga as his own captain. Before the night was out, Mark Henry had joined "Mr. Excitement's" troops as well. And with just three weeks until The Show of Shows in Miami, the struggle to add key Superstars to the rosters is sure to be intense. And the competition among Superstars to be selected to those teams promises to be just as ferocious.
    And here's your match to get on all of the midcard stars. I can see the teams being:

    Ace:
    Henry, Christian, Otunga, Ziggler, Swagger and Alberto Del Rio

    Long:
    Santino, Truth, Kofi, Khali, Ryder and Brodus Clay

    I don't imagine it'll be anything too good since it won't receive much time, but it should be passable.

    It's not that i'm excited to see this match but i just like the storyline. As for teams I just don't see Ziggler and Ryder (guess he will have some storyline with Eve Torres for a mixed tag team match) in it. And I really don't want to see the Great Khali in it.

    Here are my teams:

    Team ACE:
    Henry, Christian, Otunga, The Miz (i just see him getting in one way or another), Drew McIntyre (as for thanking Laurinaitis for giving him his job back) and Alberto Del Rio

    Team Long:
    Santino, Truth, Kofi, Mason Ryan (just need some muscles in it), Justin Gabriel and Brodus Clay

    Heres who I think will be on each team not included currently injured stars. Not sure about Teddys last man.

    Team Johnny: Otunga, Henry, Christian, Del Rio, Ziggler, Swagger
    Team Teddy: Santino Kofi, Truth, Ryder, Khali, ?
    Shit.....You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.

    here's also a possibillity.

    The beginning of a face turn of the Miz. Maybe Long says that he believes in the Miz and that he deserves to be on the card. So he's in on team long and maybe be the sole survivor? Come on you gotta give this guy a place somewhere on the card or else you wouldn't let him be the longest in ring competitor in the RR or the final guy in the EC

    I'd mark out so hard for a McIntyre run in to screw teddy out of his job - wishful thinking?

    From a storyline perspective, here's what I hope would be the teams:
    Otunga; Christian; Del Rio; Miz; Ziggler; Henry (no need for Swagger, he's nothing right now)
    vs.
    Santino; Ryder; Rey; Kofi; Truth; Morrison

    If they could get Morrison in for Team Long somehow, that would help balance the match, because right now Team Laurinaitis looks overwhelmingly better.

    I doubt that'll happen, although I do think that'll be team Laurinaitis though. The match should be given quite a bit of time since we haven't got that many more matches to be announced (something to do with Divas and Kane/Orton?)

    Shame Henry is going to job to Cena next because this week he finally looked like a killer once again. Face team really needs a Rey Mysterio or Evan Bourne (or both!) to carry them, though.

    They could feature Miz on Longs Team to start a turn. Like they did early in Cena's career at Mania. Miz could bitch about Johnny for his fall through the ranks.

    After watching Raw, that's exactly what I was thinking.

    Miz would be perfect for the last man in Teddy Long's team. The only real problem with it is that Long has literally no reason to trust Miz after the last several months with Miz sucking up to Ace. That and the fact that Miz has been on a losing streak for a long while now... Would Long want to risk his job on such a long shot?

    I miss the decent 10-12 man matches like the survivor series 2001 and 2003, those were fairly decent

    I'd like Ace's team to win, but at this point, it's obvious, at least to me, that Long is bringing it home. Ace wasn't on TV for years prior, and this is pretty much where he leaves TV again.

    Personally, I reckon it could swing either way CAPS, but that might just be because I want them to build Johnny up so high that when he falls from grace, it's epic.

    Nah Long's team seem dead winners for me as well. I dunno I just can't see this sort of match ending with the heels victorious.

    Pretty sure Bragging rights is gone. Can't remember though but it's not even listed on WWE.com anymore.

    Looks like Team Teddy for me.

    Says something about the midcard faces when you have to shoehorn Khali and maybe have to turn somebody just to get the match underway.

    Number of World Titles on Team Ace: 8
    Number of World Titles on Team Long: 0.

It seems the chaos has gotten so bad members mostly younger members are using racist and gay slurs to their answers in debate. Legit I saw three threads where members put f***** and that's it. Yesterday I rage over these members I basically told them to stop that, it gives no value to what you're saying in a post. No one will take you seriously if you using such words just to say it. Shoot even the sb is a jungle full of chaos with the same situation. I came to the G-Mod and said hey you're in charge of this forum, you let shit go under the rug why did I say that? Well last week a member came into my LD for Impact and spoiled the whole show for most people. I went in the sb for the forum and said hey man this guy is fucking up the experience for people in the sb can you do something. He pretty much knew this member and told me he's done this before so I'm thinking it took me to say something for you to act? Also a month ago I had a problem with a member named Nero where randomly out of no where he puts racist pics of Hispanic doing crimes, eating Tacos etc! I was like one I never talked about this guy the purpose of this. Again this G-Mod knew about his antics as well as Puls3 the Admin. A month before this I told the Admin he was a problem putting down new members left and right. Thank God I screencaped his actions and he hasn't been there since. Okay now back to the Global Mod I took it twitter and told the guy straight up you don't act because you love the slurping of your dick from members. He's doesn't want to mend fences pretty much and besides setting up a league for the forum for WWE 2k14 he does nothing for the forum. Now I want to talk to Puls3 personally because his rules are being broken left and right and his staff in charge is doing nothing by joining in the fun. I have a plan to get two or three other staff members who I think will be fair and firm when needed should I talk to him. I know I'm taking it seriously but I love this forum like I love this forum and I don't want it to be spoiled like Milk you feel me? Also on twitter and on the forum a bunch of little kids came to box with me when I was speaking my mind and I told them grow some hair on your chest before talking to me lol

    Looks like Nash has blocked that khali world title reign from his memory

    And I fear long could well win this, but really hope that isnt the case.

    We can write-off Team Long off all we want, but you've got to remember that the final teams haven't actually been announced yet. Yes, the rumoured participants make sense, but I can't see them being that lop-sided. WWE have more than enough time to swap and change guys.

    Team Johnny could have another member. This was tweeted by Drew McIntyre 2 hours ago."After suspending me, stripping me of my IC title, firing me twice and even deporting me...Teddy your F'n out!!! #TeamLaurinaitis".
    Shit.....You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.
