Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
JBLoser Reviews RAW - July 3, 2006 Edition
Ric Flair vs Chris Jericho: Wow excellent start to the show by having a high quality match to open it. Looked to be a hot opener, and Jericho gets the win by grabbing the tights. Maybe this leads to a feud later on? I sure hope so, as some good promos could come out of it if it comes into fruition.
Trish/Mickie Promo: This was a decent interview. They both seemed in character, and I can see a Trish/Mickie match down the road at Summerslam after this promo. I see Trish winning a match against Victoria or something to get the title shot.
Chuck Palumbo vs Val Venis: Chuck Palumbo aye? Hmm, this could be interesting to see how this works out. Hopefully he doesn't get too big of a push, and only an IC Title run or something, as he isn't one of my favorites. Looking forward to see how you use him though.
Matt Striker Promo: Liked this promo right here. Striker comparing himself to the likes of Sammartino, Flair, and Hogan is great, as it shows his cockiness, which you are bringing out tremendously, and to no surprise as he is one of your favorites. Not too shabby, and Striker going for the Intercontinental Championship sounds good, and a title run is probably in his future.
Jeff Hardy vs Booker T: Exciting match here. A good finish with Hardy picking up the win, but with the unwanted help of Carlito. A Booker/Carlito feud could be fun to watch, and is something fresh. Looks good to me.
Saturday Night's Main Event Promo: The same one we've seen, and it's a pretty good one in my eyes. SNME should be a good read when it is up.
The Highlanders vs Cade & Murdoch: Eh, decent tag match. I don't like these teams too much, but they have some talent. Good win for The Highlanders, and it seems Cade & Murdoch are falling into obscurity.
Christian Promo: Loved this promo here. Christian was in character, and the movie was HILARIOUS. The Venis/Viscera stuff was gold, and HBK challenges Christian to a match. Christian though doesn't like the idea, and has better things to worry about in the No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal, which should be a fun match. An HBK/Christian program seems to be in the works, and a good, fun match could come out of this. HBK gets the last laugh tonight, but I expect Christian to get the better of him come next week.
Triple H vs Eugene: Doesn't seem like much of a match here. HHH gets the best of Eugene, and now where does HHH go? I see that he is in the No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal, but somehow I don't see him winning that match. Honestly I think it could be a darkhorse winning. But that's just my opinion, and we'll have to see what happens in the next few shows.
RVD Promo: This promo was a pretty good one. It kind of reminded me of the HBK/Cena situation that was going on right now, as Forever-Delayed noted, but this was one of the better interviews I've seen from Van Dam, as I agree with Forever-Delayed.
RVD/Cena vs MNM: MNM gets the victory tonight, after Nitro keeps Cena's foot down on the outside. Interesting end to the show with Van Dam sending a message to Cena, by hitting the Five Star on Mercury. The RVD/Cena feud looks to be short term, unless a Smackdown! superstar wins the Battle Royal. Regardless, this could be a good match come SNME.
Good show KOP, keep up the good work.
