Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Good opening promo between Edge and Christian, some nice dialogue between the two and the many references to them being "brothers." It done really well building up the feud for Wrestlemania and brawl capped it off.
JBL vs Bobby Lashley: Good opener, with a nice finish to the match having JBL counter the dominator into the Clothesline from Hell, nice to JBL in MITB should add extra to the match with his brawling background.
Good Booker T promo, i was expecting the "Tell me you just didn't say that line" when Josh asked his last question, but good build up for his match with Rey Mysterio.
Very good promo between Teddy Long and MNM, with everyone very much in character and a huge match scheduled for next week, 2 out 3 falls should be good.
Jamie Noble vs Shannon Moore: Decent match, good to see the cruisers getting an opportunity with a nice ending having Kid Kash lay out Jamie Noble and giving the cruisers an feud to go with, Kid Kash was put over very nicely.
The Randy Orton promo was fantastic, really good. I liked how the segment was similar to Paprazzi Productions of Alex Shelley, but the way it kept on cutting out his name, i didn't expect The Rock, but nice comments from the Rock and that match should be huge at Wrestlemania, truely Legend vs Legend Killer.
Ukliq vs Mexicools: Good win for Ukliq, nice stable with the Brits and good win over the Mexicools with the help off Finlay shillelagh to take the Mexicools out.
Batista promo with Undertaker was good. Another good match scheduled for Wrestlemania which should be good, nice mind games by Taker.
Good addition in Macho Man Randy Savage to the Hall of Fame class, which is good, nice to see Owen Hart (RIP) get recognition.
Matt Hardy vs Simon Dean: Good win for Hardy managing to keep Gymini at bay, nice to see him in MITB, should hopefully see some bumps from him.
Decent Benoit promo, put over his match with Ken Kennedy well and the MITB match.
Good Wrestlemania promo similar to the vignettes of Wrestlemania 21, nicely written, i can imagine that would be good to watch.
Ken Kennedy vs Chris Benoit: Great win for Kennedy to get into MITB, nice finish having Bookers music distract Benoit and cost him the match i can see some retribution being delievered.
Rey Mysterio vs Booker T: Another good NWO rematch, good to see Rey Mysterio retain, a bit suprised by no Benoit interference, but it should be good build up for the future.
Overall a very good Smackdown which built Wrestlemania up well, the promo's stood out really well.
