Re: Forever-Delayed and Kane01 Do WWE
Opening segment- This was AMAZING, great way to hype their feud and Batista was really entertaining. Nice comments about attacking from behind and then turning around, that's pure gold right there. Edge sort of trailed off towards the end and was pulling out random comments, and Batista seriously ended up being more entertaining at the end, like the line about 'which bitch do you mean' just great lines for Batista that fit his character nicely. I loved the build up and you did a great job with Batista's lines, but Edge felt kinda 'out-there'.
Chavo/Kidman- A solid cruiserweight match with Chavo getting some offense but Kidman ultimately being on top. I didn't like London interfering, only because he's a face, right? Faces don't usually interfere. Anyway, good build with their feud, and I see a triple threat at WM, which should be awesome.
Carlito/Kennedy segment- A good promo, nothing special, both men seem more focused on insulting each other than they do on their NWO opponents, which basically means it'll be Kennedy/Carlito at WM, which I would love. Felt a bit shaky at times, as it was mainly them just taking shots at each other, but still good.
Dudleys vs XXX- Another solid match with had XXX seemingly about to win, but Mexicools screw them and Dudleys end up winning. A quick rematch for the tag titles at NWO will be good, especially with the stipulation. XXX/Mexicools should be solid at NWO as well, but I'm upset that XXX just randomly loses on SmackDown as their first loss, not the greatest booking.
Mysterio/Orton segment- The interview with Mysterio started solid and was hyping his feud with Angle well, until Orton stepped in. Orton seemed in-character for the most part, but nothing out of the normal, just saying he's a legend killer and its his destiny to beat Rey, heard it a thousand times before. Should be a good match though, recapped or not
Lesnar vs Holly- A squash match, but a fun squash, with Lesnar dominating with tons of power moves and finishing it off with Batista's moves, great way to set the stage for their upcoming WM feud.
HHH/JBL- Meh, akward. Some lines in character, some lines out of character, dragged on a bit, and didn't do much for me. Yes there were some funny and entertaining lines, and it set up their feud well, but other than that it didn't seem to fit the show and was overall decent, at best. The promos are lacking tonight.
Show/Kane vs The Cabinet- Meh, didn't care for this match at all. At least Big Show gets the win and gives him some momentum going into his NWO match. Other than that, this really didn't do anything and the match itself wasn't too entertaining
Rock promo- The usual Rock promo, nothing new or special but definitely entertaining and did a great job of hyping the feud with Kennedy. Promo of the night, went a really great length and everything was spot on.
Main Event- Great match, all 8 men going all out and trying to prove themselves and send a message going into NWO. The ending kinda killed the match but continued the feud nicely, having Batista overcome Edge with the chair and stand above him, although he has no chance of winning (I think).
Great booking, great matches...not-so-great promos. As Wolfy said in his review (I think it was him), your promos the past few weeks have been shaky, but two months ago they were some of the best around. Not sure what the problem could be. Also, I have a huge gripe with the feuds. Mysterio is more worried about Angle, Batista is more worried about Lesnar, Kennedy is more worried about Carlito and vice versa, suff like that. It makes NWO seem so un-important. I know WM is right around the corner, but c'mon. A solid show, but not your best. NWO looks great though, recapped or not.
