ORRY'S Smackdown Review
Opening Segment: I'm not sure if it was the fact that Matt Hardy was invloved, but I must say man that this opening segment was excellent! Everything flowed very nicely, with Hardy showing great courage and desire, while the 7 footer refused to back down. Mysterio's appearance was expected, as he allowd Hardy to take out Show. Although Show is occupoied with Mysterio at the moment, you can't help but think that his mind is on Matt Hardy.
Cruiserweight Championship: Great action between two great wrestlers, with Sabin picking up a shock win to end the 7th month reign of Helms! I don't think we've seen the last of these two in the ring.
Kings Court Promo: A little repetetive and a bit to standard, but when you think of it all the Court's promos are like that. Decent promo here man, which helps build the 6 Man Tag Team Match up well.
Hardy/Long Segment: Interesting segment here,and I wonder what Hardy has in mind. Will he be able to get Mysterio to relinquish his spot? What will go down at Summerslam? I can't wait!
Hooligans vs. Mexicools vs. Pitbulls: Solid match here, with the Champs ever present at ringside. As expected, JBL and Kennedy interfere to cost the Hooliogans the match, and the aftermath was very effective in building the Ladder Match stipulation.
Batista Promo: Shaky promo here, but Batista promos are always hard to write. It was decent enough to get his point across, and I am looking forward to Benoit/Batista tonight!
Chris Benoit vs. Batista: The match was average, but the aftermath was fantastic, as it helped build towards Summerslam tremendously well. Henry attacks, but instead of attacking Batista, Angle takes out Henry, only to be hit with a SPinebuster for his troubles. Batista heel turn in the mix?
Kings Court Promo 2: This was probally a little uneccassry and unneeded. Keep in mind you dont have to have a promo between every match. Nether the less this was ok I suppose, but it was effective in giving the Knights their roles for the night. You could have done this in the earlier promo though.
Lashley vs. William Regal: As expected the King interferes to give Regal the win. A little to predictable, but the aftermath was good, as was Taker's appearance. I'm not getting the videos at all, they don't make much sense but nether the less I can't wait to find out who thi guy is, as well as Taker's partner.
Kurt Angle vs. Mark Henry: Good main event, although I'm not into Henry's monster push. Benoit's interferance costs Henry the match, but after the encounter Benoit looks weak as Henry easily takes him out (I hope there is a different story at Summerslam). Batista then hits the ring and takes out Henry, before Angle gets payback by hitting the Angle Slam! Good end to the show, I hope Angle keeps his momentum rolling at Summerslam with a win.
Overall: One of the best shows I have read from you man, good stuff. Summerslam is looking solid, and you have built the card up pretty damn well. 8.5/10!
