Re: WWE 2006 & Beyond by DDMac
Great way to open the show. However being it SNME, I thought that Jericho/Taker segment would open the show. However the match between Carlito and Van Dam was great. Surprised to see Carlito win the match, as I thought that Van Dam would be leaving the Intercontinental Champion. However I have a feeling that Van Dam will be one of the members in the Money in the Bank match at Mania.
Excellent Cena promo man. I see that you’re keeping the hip-hop style of Cena, and that’s great. This promo was very original, and you were able to get the fans to turn on Cena within the middle of the promo. Taker coming out was expected, but I’m surprised to see Cena hit the F-U on Taker, as it made Cena look a little too strong against Taker, but there match at Mania, should be a classic.
Not surprised to see Umaga vs. Kane end in a DQ. While the match was not a classic, it was able to continue the feud between Kane and Umaga, and Raw and Smackdown. The Interpromotional Tag Team Match at Mania looks like it is going to be a huge brawl.
Evolution’s promo sets the tone perfectly for the huge main event. The promo felt very realistic, and it got the point across. Looks like the members of Evolution are all on the same page, and the main event looks like it is going to be great.
Man, I’m shocked that Chavo lost the match. I hope there is a reason as to why Chavo lost the match, and hopefully returns to the ring in this thread. Great match, and I like how you kept the realistic view of the crowd with some of the NYC showing some disrespect to a legend, Chavo Guerrero. Looks like Mysterio versus Daniels is going to be off the chain come Mania. Hopefully after Mania, both Daniels and Mysterio are pushed more in this thread, and a possibly run at the US Championship for Mysterio.
Great promo with all three men in character, and even some comedy was added into the promo. I like the buildup that this match and the WWE Championship has been receiving in this thread.
Great Hall of Fame class man, as all of the men inducted truly deserve to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
That might have been one of the best Rey Mysterio’s promos that I have read in BTB history. That was great as the promo flowed so well. In that little segment, Mysterio just made that match against Daniels for Mania, a must see match. I have a feeling that the match might be the match if not MITB to open Mania, and if it is, I have a feeling, if given enough time, that it will be a match that quite possibly steals the show.
The push for Lashley continues as he and Finlay win the match, but Finlay turns on Lashley after the match. Looks like Finlay will be the next person that Lashley has to face as the build up for Lashley in this thread continues.
Austin comes to the ring and cuts a great promo, and Coach and his crew along with Angle come and attack Austin. Surprised to see Vince, but this is SNME and it’s at the Garden, so Vince has to be on SNME. Great announcement from Vince, and now that Coach won’t be the guest ref, Angle vs. Austin should be a classic!
Didn’t know that Mickie has been the Women’s Champion in this thread for eleven months. That is quite impressive. Victoria wins the match, and gets the momentum back in her corner, and we have a staredown between Victoria and the champ, Mickie. I thought that the two would start a fight, but it seems like that will happen on an upcoming episode of Raw.
Excellent Main Event match man. Evolution wins as expected, but the point of the match, was that The Rock returns and the crowd is on its feet. Rock vs. Hunter is going to be great man!
Overall Comments: After reading your last Raw, I thought that SNME was not going to be that good. However Smackdown had changed my opinion. And this event was great, as it got the gears going for Mania. Still surprised that Chavo lost, but everything on this show was on point. Looking forward to Raw, and the WrestleMania card is looking great!
