Sorry it took so long to get around to you, been lazy this week.
So, we’re off with a bang. JBL gets the tape he’s been waiting for, and it looks like Michaels attacker WILL be revealed this evening. Big time news … but this would’ve been better to have been built up from last week and added some intrigue to the big reveal.
Helms continues his war on the Cruiserweight division in what is coming across as a really interesting angle. But has Helms explained what his problem is with the cruiserweights or is he just looking to eliminate all his competitors??
Well, Jeff sure is fired up for SummerSlam. No worries on his part if the match is going ahead, he definitely wants it. Should be epic, and I expect some sort of twist in the coming weeks as there just seems to be something lined up to throw this one over the edge.
Seems a bit of an odd SummerSlam match, and frankly, looks really out of place on a loaded card. Just looks like a match to get some upper midcarders / main eventers on the show, as this one seemed to get announced with no prior build up. Only thing interesting for me here is that someone is coming back to Smackdown. Direction for Christian please
Kingston over Masters in the battle of the debutants. One of them isn’t going to survive the cull imo. Too many mid carders on the show for both to be able to stick around.
So, Michaels seems convinced that it was JBL behind his attack last month. I guess with Layfields relief at the finding of the video, he’s not the culprit.
Best of the mid card get to go at SummerSlam, and I cannot wait to see how that one turns out. Loving the Paul London push, and even despite the loss tonight, I can see him becoming Intercontinental Champion somewhere down the road - but probably not at SummerSlam. Glad to see the best athletes on the show all battling out for the I.C Title, reminds me of the glory days in 2000.
Bit of a nothing segment between Morrison and the tag champs. I guess we’ll either be seeing the reintroduction of Mercury or Miz to join him for a by the numbers tag feud. Probably the best place for Morrison at this point, as the mid card scene is extremely crowded for him to get a proper look in.
Wow. Ric Flair, huh?? That was certainly a surprise, and a heck of a reveal. Despite the reveal hitting the target, you still need to hit a home run with Flairs explanation next week or you’ll suck the life out of this feud. The explanation needs to hit the mark for the feud to succeed and get over properly imo. If it’s by the numbers Ric Flair - ‘I want one more run, and need to be the dirtiest player in the game’, I’ll be disappointed. I want a big reason - one that’ll make me go ‘Oh fuck’ in a good way. Make it happen KOP, make it happen!!
Loving MVP as the champ. I’m certain you’re the first to go there, and it’s refreshing to see a new face in the main events. Jackson as his bodyguard is the perfect fit, and I hope we see Porter as champion for a long run. Hardy with the win here to add some momentum towards SummerSlam, but the big story and final moments go with Edge and MVP, and a strong finish to the show, with Porter making the most of his big bodyguard. How will Edge overcome that disadvantage?? He wont
