Re: Being the booker

Expect Raw on Thursday or Friday. From now until the build up towards RR, I'm not writing Smackdown, so what I'll be doing is posting Raw usually on Mondays starting from January 9th, and then on Thursdays I'll post the SD recap, Heat and Velocity results, as well as the odd news bit. For this week though, I'll post all of that on Thursday or Friday.

Also, I've began returning some reviews for Survivor Series. For those who have yet to recieve a review back from me yet, I'll either have it done within the next day or two, or whenever your next show is posted.


News and Notes:

Madison Square Garden hosts Raw this week, just 24 hours removed from the 19th annual Survivor Series, which will be the first night of the Ric Flair administration on Raw, after Team Flairs thrilling victory over Team Foley at the PPV. Mick Foley will not be at Raw this week, or any time in the near future, although a return before Wrestle Mania is likely, should something come up for the Hardcore Legend.

The Raw superstars will be jetting off across to Asia next Saturday for a week long live event tour, which means the November 14th edition of Raw will have to be taped on November 11th in Grand Rapids.

It has also been announced this past week, that UPN will be airing a one hour live Smackdown Special on November 22nd.

Two more Wrestle Mania vignettes are expected in the coming months, with the first set to be aird at the Royal Rumble in January, and the second to the aired at the Saturday Night Main Event show, currently slated for mid February.

With the superstars earning the Christmas week off, the December 26th edition of Raw, and the December 29th edition of Smackdown will be 'Best of 2005' shows, featuring the best matches from television and PPV this last year.

Just as another note, regarding the Eddie Guerrero situation. I'll not mention him in the SD recap this week, but I will acknowledge him the following week. As I'm sure everyone knows by now, Survivor Series was the last time I would use him. Over the next couple of weeks, it will become clear as to the situation with the WWE Championship.

For those of you maybe wondering what I had planned for Eddie Guerrero had he still been with us, I unfortunately hadnt planned on giving him the WWE Title originally at Survivor Series, being screwed early in the match by Triple H to further that feud. He was then set to enter the Royal Rumble at #1, and go pretty far into the match (last 6), before being once again, screwed by Triple H. This would lead to Wrestle Mania, and a gimmick match, most likely No Holds Barred, against Triple H, with Eddie finally beating The Game. After Wrestle Mania, I hadnt made any solid plans for him, but he was set to feature heavily.

Major thumbs up btw to Grendrill for the Armageddon banner

Also, with things set to get going again in this thread, I thought I should post the title histories in this thread, as most readers I've gained in recent months, arent likely to have seen the one I posted previously 6 months or so ago...
