Are these matches been confirmed or are they just what we are hoping for?

 

Oh and I hate the poster. Jericho playing Deal or No Deal doesn't do it for me.

At least it's mildly relevant to the event, as Jericho will be wanting revenge with Cena. It's better than a diva surfing or Kane moulding metal on a card he probably won't even be on.

With Edge winning the Title so recently, I can't see anything but him retaining. But I would absolutely love Jeff to win.

 

Last year at Armageddon, it was Edge-Taker-Batista, which was sort of an early set-up for Edge-Taker. I'd love if this was the same for Edge-Jeff at Wreslemania, but I really fear it's all leading to Edge-Triple H.

Edge/Triple H/Jeff Hardy should be a decent match, but as the card stands now, I could pass on this one. If Undertaker & Big Show have a HIAC Match, I might consider shelling out the $39.95, but anything less, I will probably skip it.

Undertaker & Big Show have a HIAC Match

 

that would be the worst one in histroy (well since HHH vs Nash) HIAC has been over exposed it means next to nothing these days.

I would love to see Beth Phoenix Vs "Melanie" for the Womens Title added to the Card after their interaction on RAW this week.

I imagine it will be. As for the rest of the card, looks alright. Should be enough to continue the good run of WWE PPV's. I'm still in two minds as to whether to buy it or not.

I wouldn't say it means "next to nothing". Sure, it isn't as big a deal as it was for the first couple (but you can say that about any match stipulation), but there have only been sixteen HiaC matches in over eleven years, so it's hardly been over-exposed.

I think I have to agree with TWP on this one, sixteen in eleven years means more than one a year on average. I think something like HIAC should only be seen very rarely, like once every couple of years, that way it is really special when one finally happens!

It's supply and demand! People like them so much, they want to have a good amount of them [to eventually make a DVD, which they have], but at the same time they don't want to make it like monthly, so they use it sparingly, and considering [not including house shows] they have about 150 shows a year and at least 12 pay-per-views, then one every 0.8 years odd isn't that bad. Far from over-exposed.

CM Punk Vs. Rey Mysterio in the Finals of the Intercontinental Title Tournament has been added to the card. Also, I just wanted to clarify that, despite reports on FourDown.org and in the Wrestling Observer, Finlay & Hornswoggle Vs. Mark Henry & Tony Atlas is not and never has been confirmed for Armageddon. That match took/takes place on the December 9 edition of ECW.

You have to also take into account that two of the HiaC matches were on RAW and weren't really matches anyway.

 

Kane/Mankind v Austin/Undertaker was a glorified angle, as was Mankind v Kane.

 

There were:

 

1997 - 1 match

1998 - 3 matches (only one of which was an actual out-and-out match)

1999 - 1 match

2000 - 2 matches (one in February and one in December)

2001 - 0 matches

2002 - 2 matches

2003 - 1 match

2004 - 1 match

2005 - 2 matches

2006 - 1 match

2007 - 1 match

2008 - 1 match

 

All of that gives you an average of just 1.33 per year (and if you take out the two RAW matches, it gives you an average of 1.1 'Hell in a Cell' matches per year), which isn't exactly that many and puts it almost on a par with the MitB and Royal Rumble for exclusivity.
