ORRY'S Raw Review
Solid way to open the show, with Van Dam and Fonzie performing their usual routione. The Rated R Army hits the scene, and after punking out RVD on the mike, the Army attacks Mr Monday Night. As expected Carlito and Mercury arrive, closely follwed by DX (who seem to have no problems communicating with each other, despite the fact HBK left HHH high and dry last week?), as the faces clear house. Solid opener to the show, and the main event should be off the chain!
Melina vs. Mickie James:
Interesting choice for the opener, usually a Womens matchw ouldn't be the first on the card, as they tend to be dull, and fail to get the crowd hyped. Nether the less, Melina picks up a huge win over the Champ, but I see Mickie retaining at Summerslam.
This seemed a little off to me, with ex[ecially Orton out of character. The term "bloodied or bloody" was used way too much in this segment, and it detracted from the quality In any case, it continues to build the feud, and i can't wait to see what goes down at Summerslam.
Very short, but it got it's point across well- Edge will no longer be at a disadantage come Sunday, as I see the Rated R Army getting invloved.
Charlie Hass vs. Viscera:
Lol "butt-bump" sounds like it's a very powerful move
Hass squashes the 500 pounder in a match that was just their to fill time.
Umaga vs. Ric Flair:
Decent match, although I feel Umaga should be used in a more effective way- like a proper feud. Nether the less, Cactus makes his presence felt, as the feud between him and Fair continues. I somehow see Falir overcoming the odds at Summerslam.
10 Man Elimination Match:
Obviously this was way too short to be a fully written match, but the half recap, half full idea was great, and it resulted in an enjoyable read. The faces pick up a huge win, which makes me feel that Edge is retaining at Summerslam in someway shape or form.
Wow, this was way too short for a 2 hour program, this may have not even reached the 1 1/2 hour mark. Besides that and a few shakey promos, this was a pretty good show, and I am looking forward to Summerslam- 7.5/10. On another note, do not force me to review Summerslam man, I'll review the show if I feel you deserve it...which you obviously do of ciourse
However next time, a simple request will be much preferred, and maybe less death threats too
