Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment

Working on your review right now, bud. It should be up once I finish Smackdown, which should take a few days. Who knows, it might be sooner than that. Hope you're enjoying your holiday, buddy. Be safe and enjoy yourself!

Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment

Royal Rumble

The opening promo would've been much better than that, if you would have just kept the topic on Royal Rumble. I mean, it really wasn't more about 'Royal Rumble', but the wrestlers' flash-images were good that probably saves you here.
Rating: 7/10

Royal Rumble Qualifier
Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena

The length of this match was good in my opinion, but the flow wasn't 100% on the spot. Apart from the flow, I mean in the variety of moves, I personally wouldn't believe HBK going for a Hurricanrana at this age, but Cena countering that into a sit-out powerbomb was awesome. However, I think that you showed that move really weak because HBK kicked out real quickly. Anyway, after that move, the action picked up, and it went nicely. I liked the spot of Cena counters the SCM into spinebuster as well. Good creative counter. I also liked the spot when Cena went for the axe handle, but Michaels connected a SCM to him in the mid air. Perfect counter once again. Anyway, the match then continued, and the pace was just fine, which made the match exciting. I liked the finish as well because I think it is perfect to have Michaels getting pinned by a roll-up, not by Cena's finishing move because if Michaels would've gotten pinned by Cena from his submission move, then Michaels would have looked weak, but that wasn't the case here, which is definitely good.
Rating: 7.5/10

I didn't like the start of this promo with Vince and Eric, and that's only because you had Teddy Long there, but why didn't he say anything. He should atleast say something in my opinion, but anyway, JBL and Ric Flair really saved this promo. It looked awesome then. I mean, the confrontation between both of these superstars was brilliantly handled, but let me tell you one thing: I didn't really liked you throwing the usage of slangs for JBL because I don't think he uses them. But still, it was a good promo.
Rating: 8/10

Kurt Angle's promo was gold. He was spot on, and the intensity was there. Good promo to hype his feud with Triple H, which has turned out to be a personal and a heated rivalry.
Rating: 10/10

World Heavyweight Championship: Triple Threat Match
Batista © vs. Randy Orton vs. The Undertaker

Anytime it looked like that the match will slow down, someone will make a come back or make a surprise to give the match it's pace again. I liked how the way you written the match. It was a good fast-paced match, and the match of the night so far. Randy Orton's tactics throughout the match were fine, and The Undertaker and Batista were fine as well. However, the first 5 minutes of this match was just messy brawl, hitting each other with punches, stomps, etc, which I didn't like. Apart from it, the flow was perfect. and so was the realism. Excitement factor was present there, and the length was just okay. Start of this match was just okay, but the middle and the finishing part of this match was awesome. The way you wrote this contest made me excited, and it was actually 100 times better than Michaels vs. Cena. Batista retaining the title wasn't a surprise to me though. One thing I don't like, is that you didn't have The Undertaker sit up like he does in his matches. Anyway, it was a good read nonetheless.
Rating: 9/10

I don't know why, but I can sense that John Cena might win Royal Rumble, and that's maybe because you're hyping him throughout the show? Anyway, this promo here was kept short, which is okay with me. Eric Bischoff was perfect here, whilst John Cena was just being okay. The promo itself was alright, nothing too fancy, but it hypes John Cena's character, Eric's feud with Cena, and the Royal Rumble match itself. By the way, I like that Bischoff took the liberty of picking Cena's number. I now believe that John Cena will come out in the first 5 entrants. I can't be wrong here.
Rating: 8/10

I kinda miss Booker T after reading this promo. Mark my words: you captured Booker T amazingly here. You know, I read this promo (only for Booker's lines) 2 times, and that's only because Booker was being so good. Mysterio was just meh, but he didn't hurt the promo that much because you just didn't let him say anything more than a couple of lines. Nice promo to hype the Royal Rumble match even more, and by the way, I sense Booker T and Mysterio for the US Title for 'Mania.
Rating: 9/10

WWE Championship
Kurt Angle © Triple H

I really liked the starting of this match, but then it got boring somehow. I mean, the way you written this was great, but I was just waiting for them to get into the ring, but they just brawled at the outside of the ring, which bored me. I was just waiting... waiting... and waiting for them to get into the ring. Anyway, apart from it, this contest wasn't really a classical match. It just had brawl, which hurt the flow time after time. Anyway, every other match so far in this Rumble is obviously better than this match in my opinion. I also didn't like the finish because you used the same finish in the first match as well. It had surprise, which is good, but the repititiveness ain't good. Excitement was there, only because of your writing, but the content was just boring (Only because they brawled each other at the outside of the ring most of the times in this match, which hurt the flow as well). Realism was fine, but I still don't like the fact, that they brawled each other at the outside for most of the time. Anyway, Kurt retains the title, but I still believe that Triple H will somehow get a main event at 'Mania. Let's see.
Rating: 6.5/10

The content in this promo was just okay, and nothing special, but the way you write things is good, which really made this promo special. I liked this promo, mainly because of Edge's lines. Edge was perfect, whilst Batista was just being Batista. Nice promo to hype Royal Rumble match, and probably an upcoming feud of Batista vs. Edge?
Rating: 8/10

I didn't really like this promo, but the finish was interesting, which makes not me, but I'm sure everyone surprise. You know it, I'm sure that someone else is going to come out on Cade's number, and he might win it. Who knows? Okayish promo.
Rating: 5/10

Royal Rumble Match
Shelton Benjamin is fine to start with, but I don't think he's ready to win the Rumble yet. Cena as #2? Not surprised actually after his promo with Bischoff. It was clearly understandable that Cena will have a rough night: thanks to Bischoff. Anyway, they wrestle each other for 90 seconds nicely, and then outcomes JBL, who I don't think will win the Rumble, but he might last longer. I'm actually surprised to see Cena coming back, and taking down Cena with his right hands, and then a Freestyle. The way you write Cena, makes him look like a real Superman. Lol. Nitro is the next man in, and I thought the heels will double-team the faces, but I was wrong. Once again the action continues nicely, and Cena ONCE again dominates JBL, which I don't really like now cause it's making Cena VERY powerful. Anyway, Helms is up next, and then the action got better. I liked the double-teaming of Helms and Nitro, which didn't last long. And I also liked Shelton saving Cena with an amazing counter. Super Crazy's part with Shelton entertained me nicely. Anyway, here comes, uh, Eugene, and his part with Helms was okay, but then... Cena eliminates Nitro, which is good for the superman, but not for Nitro. Kane enters, and I liked the fact, that every wrestler stood tall against Kane, but Kane destroyed all of them, eliminating poor Crazy as well.

Kane's destruction then continues on Kane, whilst Helms eliminates Eugene. By the way, William Regal is still at the outside? I like it the way you're explaining that he's not entering because he's being nervous. Anyway, Mercury is in, while the stupidness of Gregory Helms cost him a chance to main event WrestleMania: thanks to Benjamin. The action was going okay, and then comes Haas, who slides Regal back into the ring, only to get eliminated by Kane. Haha. WGTT re-unites for the time being, and I'm surprised that they knocked Kane down. Carlito draws #12, and he SPITS the apple chunks right on the face of Kane? I'm surprised, but Kane soon takes him down, before handling WGTT. Mercury's out, and thanks to Kane, who then cleans the ring! Great way to show Kane's dominance. Chris Benoit is in, and I really liked liked the way he succeeded to take down Kane, but he sat up! Kane's just proving to be the real monster! Whoa, didn't really expect that! Kane gets eliminated by everyone! Great way to throw Kane out. Chris Benoit's dominance was amazing as well, and the Crossface is soon locked-in onto the All-American untill Striker is in!

Let me just you that Tazz's line before the action was gold. Striker then works on Cena, JBL takes down Cena, and Haas keeps Masters in the middle of the ring with the Haas of Pain, but Haas makes an error of letting it go, and Masters turns the things in a moment, applying the Masterlock on Haas now. Ric Flair is in, whilst Carlito knocks down Masters with a Back Cracker. Good thinking. Anyway, Masters is out next: thanks to Carlito. Haas gets eliminated now, but Shelton is the one who eliminates him? Great surprise. Kash is in now, and I liked his display as well. Didn't really expect Kash taking down Cena like that, which really, is good. JBL then takes down Shelton with his powerbomb, while Flair and Benoit have their moment by teaching Striker and Carlito with their amazing chops. Matt Hardy's in, and his part was done nicely as well, with him showing his dominance, whilst on the other side, Flair and Benoit go at it, and Benoit eventually gets the best of it, as he applies the Sharpshooter. Nicely done there. Mr. Monday Night, RVD draws #19, and he eliminates the schoolteacher, Matt Striker. Next up, is Finlay, and I liked the way you started his debut with him taking down Benoit with his weapon. It'd be enough for him to draw some heat, and it is actually a good start for him in this thread, but then... I didn't really like seeing RVD taking down Finlay, and that's only because Finlay is a debutant.

Anyway, the action again continues, and here comes Chavo, who shows a good display by taking down Kash and JBL. I don't know why, but I'm really liking that Kash is still there, taking down a former WWE Champ, Cena. London's in, and I liked his fast-paced dominance as well. The tower of doom moment was terrific, and then the RVD-Benoit moment was also great. I liked that Kennedy introduce himself before getting into the ring, and then him eliminating Chavo was perfect way to hype him. I'm really surprised to see the #1 (Shelton) and #2 (Cena) are still in here. Next up, is Conway, who doesn't do wonders anyway. JBL is out, thanks to Flair! I sense JBL coming back, and taking out Flair, and here he is: an already eliminated JBL... eliminating Ric Flair. Good way to start up a feud between these two, which looks promising. Mysterio is up next, and then the cruiserweights collide with each other untill Cena eliminates Conway. Kendrick is in now, but his partner gets eliminated by Mysterio, so now he will have to go alone. Kid Kash is then taken out by Cena, which is good seeing that Kash dominated Cena in this match early on. HBK?! Wow. Amazing. Loved the HBK hatred on Cena truly. Anyway, Lashley is in now, and he clears the ring, eliminating Kendrick. Lashley's powerful display was explained amazingly, with him taking down everyone. By the way, the mid air spear was truly phenomenal! Great 'Holy Shit' moment.

THE UNDERTAKER?? Wow. Great surprise again, and its good that he eliminates Lashley and Matt Hardy. Great part again, with you showcasing 'Taker's dominance on his other opponents.

Booker T's now in, and he eliminates Mysterio out of the blue. The luckiest superstar of the match himself, Edge enters, and throws out Kennedy, before he and Carlito align and take out Benoit. I don't like the fact that the debutant, Finlay is out already, but Cena eliminating him is good for Cena's character. And Cena then throws Booker out there as well. The action then picked up the pace, as the 6 men remain in the ring, battling out for the richest prize, and Edge throws RVD out. 5 men remaining now, and The Undertaker quickly throws out Shelton. Let me just say that Shelton DID do wonders in this match, and I now somewhat believe that he will recieve a good push in this thread. Final 4 now! I liked the unique double teaming of CCC and Edge on 'Taker and Cena, but then it gets broken down, as Edge tries to play possum with CCC, but CCC surprisingly comes back strongly, powerslaming Edge, but CCC is quickly taken to the outside: thanks to The Undertaker. Final 3 now, and we're close to the conclusion. Cena, Edge, and The Undertaker! Anyone can win this one! EDGE'S OUT! Wow! Didn't really expect that to come earlier! The Undertaker OR Cena are heading to Mania! Great action again, which continues for a couple of minutes, and the ending was filled with suspense. Amazing display once again by Cena, who eliminates Taker to win the RR. Great match, which had lots of excitement.

Rating: 8/10
I'm taking out 2 points only because there wasn't any flow in this match up, and I believe that's not your fault. You see, it is impossible to have a flow in this type of a match up. Other than that, the realism, length, excitement: everything was perfect. By the way, I expect Michaels to get into the 'Mania main event as well, making it a Triple Threat or something like that because it seems so obvious.

Overall, it was a great read. Be proud of this, Jonathan.

Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment

Royal Rumble Review

Michaels/Cena: Nice use of the veteran Shawn Michaels in the early going, outperforming the hothead Cena at every turn. Not use to seeing Michaels go for a hurricanrana, at least not this late in his career, so that was a bit out place. Nice spot though. Expanding the arsenal of John Cena a bit here, first with the sit out powerbomb and then the bodyscissors/chinlock combination. Solid action, with it going back and forth until Michaels hit’s a moonsault. Liked the focused assault on the leg of Cena but HBK doesn’t really have a submission move to take advantage of it, I don’t think. Maybe the Sharpshooter or Figure Four though. Some bookers would have rushed the “heel” beat down of Cena but Michaels working on the knee went a long while, good stuff. Honestly, I hope HBK turns full-fledged heel during this match or shortly after because he’s really pushing the line between face and heel at the moment, grabbing the chair. A bit of a stretch to see Cena kick out of Sweet Chin Music when Cena came flying off of the top. That should be enough to put anybody away…or you could have had some more time between the contact and the actual cover. You also over relied on the sunset flip in my opinion, maybe should have had a couple of more school boys or inside cradles. Finish came out of nowhere but was definitely a good thing, allowing Michaels to look strong as Cena picks up the victory. Solid, solid match. ***3/4

HBK starts a heel turn afterward?

Ouch. JBL completely owns Ric Flair in this segment, which is somewhat surprising considering the faces usually get the better of the heels in these one off interbrand segments. Leads me to believe that this feud of sorts will actually turn into a full blown one following some sort of incident in the actual Royal Rumble match.

Angle promo was solid in and of itself but the fact that he kind of glosses over why he wasn’t on Raw was a bit disappointing. Like the intensity Angle showed though, especially considering Hunter’s assault from Monday. Nice work.

Batista/Orton/Taker: Nice exchange between Batista and The Undertaker to kick things off, showing the equality between the two. In my opinion, Batista and Randy Orton don’t have particularly great chemistry with one another and was shown in their little brawl. Pretty plodding. Match is continuing the usual triple threat format with the individual matches taking place while each superstar catches themself a breather at one point or another. Gotta say I liked the way it was done as the action never really slows down, until Orton and Batista are left one on one as I said before. The back body drop through the table spot I could see from a mile away but was a nice way to get Batista out of there for a bit. Never seen Taker go for the cover after the Old School, so that seemed a bit off. Batista recovered rather swiftly and judging from the line afterwards, that was the point. Should have out it over/pointed it out more. Batista winning that way lets me know that Orton is pretty much out of the title picture for a while. If that was the indication, that was great booking as well as a solid finish to a good match. ***3/4

The Cena/Bischoff segment came off a little weak. Cena seemed quite a bit timid and didn’t say as much as he should with Bischoff, someone he hates, getting into his face. Also, the line about the WWE Championship boosting Cena’s ego, transitioning into the names of Hunter, Orton and Jericho came off as weird. I think I get what you were trying to say but it was just choppy. I expect Bischoff to somehow get involved in the Royal Rumble match.

Nice segment with Booker and Mysterio, establishing the cocky nature of the United States Champion as well as the underdog nature of Rey Rey. Booker’s slang was a little troubling at times but it fit his character well. A little more ‘straight’ talk could be helpful too though.

Angle/HHH: It was a little difficult to get a feel for the match since it started outside of the ring. You did your best to describe the surroundings - crates, wires and the such - but it was still a bit tough to visualize. Nice job illustrating the intensity of Angle though, loved the line about his face turning red. Just a really solid job of illustrating the match and giving the reader something to grasp on. LMAO @ Chioda and Doane getting their asses kicked this badly. You’re pushing it with the violence on the referees but it works with the two men’s hatred for one another. Angle has been booked to be a class better than Triple H tonight, looking strong tonight. I thought his intensity might bite him in the ass but that’s not the case so far. A little too reliant on Angle’s Euro Uppercut tonight. Just something to think about. Nice spot with the ring bell, reminiscent of Austin/Bret from Mania 13. Well done heel beat down by Hunter. Incredibly in character with his methodical pacing but Triple H, whom is supposed to be very intelligent, shouldn’t have gone for the cover after the spinebuster especially after he just saw both refs out. The working over of the leg was just done a couple of matches ago in Michaels/Cena so I wasn’t too big of a fan of it being repeated here by Helmsley. Another ref bump? Might as well have made this match No DQ right off of the bat. Angle finally puts it away with a roll up. Two roll up finishes almost back to back is not a good thing and in my opinion, effected the outlook of the match. Still a good match though. ***1/2

I liked the way you managed to use both Batista and Edge, having Batista’s lines kept short and sweet while Edge did most of the talking. Looks like Edge jumping to SmackDown to cash in the Money in the Bank contract is a very distinct possibility. SD could use the star power.

No clue what was going on with Cade and Murdoch at all. Closest I can come to is that someone took their number.

Royal Rumble:
Starting the match off with Benjamin is a good move, since he has a nice move-set to carry the earlier portion of the match up. Same goes for Cena from a storyline perspective, forcing Cena to go the distance. JBL at number three is strange. He doesn’t have an incredible amount of stamina so I expect him to be eliminated shortly, around the fifteenth entrant. A little too early to be filling up the ring with “jobbers” (Nitro, Crazy, Eugene, Helms), so I’m expecting a few to be cleaned out sooner or later. Lol, as expected Kane cleans house. Kind of surprising to see him only get one elimination though. Most have Kane go on a rampage of eliminations, so its somewhat refreshing to see you go the other way. In my opinion, it would’ve been more effective to have one person eliminate Kane, giving them a huge rub but I guess Kane is gonna be a focal point of this thread up until Mania. Still waiting for the star to get the huge amount of eliminations. Couple of eliminations here and Benjamin has come off looking really strong so far, starting off as one and he’s taken out a few. Big things for him seem to be on the horizon but he definitely won’t be taking this match. I like Kennedy making his return at the pay per view but he needs to last quite a while to regain his momentum. I absolutely love the brutality shown by JBL and his assault on Flair. Far too many times JBL is seen as a comedian or not serious and this showed how dangerous he can be. The promos between him and Flair should be something to read if done right. What the hell?! I like the heel turn by Michaels here but it was done far too close to JBL’s attack on Flair. Hurts the impact and the shock factor. I guess it was Taker whom was involved with the Cade and Murdoch scenario earlier but once again, this loses much of its impact because of the two attacks which just preceded. I understand that all of these guys are big stars so it should’ve happened towards the end of the match but still. Awww, would have liked to see Lashley go a bit longer but he had some impressive moments. Cena is looking like the epitome of a god at the moment. Impressive way to write him but this sis the type of booking that cost him many fans in reality. Great exchange with Van Dam and Edge before RVD’s eventual elimination. I had almost forgotten about Shelton Benjamin until he was eliminated. Used him really well tonight as the workhorse of the match and he’s gotten a huge rub from this match. Hope you capitalize on it. Same goes for Carlito. Glad to see you keeping the younger stars in and get a rub from rubbing elbows with top stars (Taker, Flair, etc). The final few minutes between Taker and Cena were well done and Cena came off looking like a complete monster tonight, going bell to bell after beating Michaels and getting drilled with the chair. A little unrealistic but completely overshadowed by some tremendous writing and drama. Really, really good match up, which started a couple of new angles and gave us one half of the main event … though now we can expect Michaels to be involved someway. Great stuff, Legend, be proud of a very good match and event overall. ****1/2

Cena crying afterward struck me the wrong way since I always felt that hurt a face’s credibility but it does show the importance of the win, so its worth it.

Sorry the review took so long. What can I say, great event. The Royal Rumble was hindered by the many main event angles which culminated at the end but didn’t effect the quality of writing throughout the show. 9/10

for the week of September 28th

I plan to start a review because it looks like a great show. It's getting great feedback and I want to read it for myself. I don't know when you can expect it though.

Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment

I had this finished on Sunday, and I completely forgot to post it. Sorry about the delay.

Renegade™ Reviews The Royal Rumble

Good opening video, set the scene well

HBK vs John Cena
I tell you this now, this was fucking awesome. Everything about the match had the potential to steal the show and my God it did certainately that. The rest of the card has ALOT to live up to after this one. I really didn't like Cena & HBK getting out of the pinfalls after they had been hit with the FU And SCM respectively, but the match was just a cliffhanger that I really couldn't decide who was gonna win it, but Cena steals it countering the roll up at the end to win what was a superb matchup. The flow sorta dropped in and out, but the pace and variety of moves towards the end kept it extremely readable. Great start. ****

Loved the promo between Flair/JBL/Vince/Bischoff. Nice comedic spot in tonight's show as I'm sure we won't see much more of them heading into WM in the next few months. A possible Flair/JBL feud for Mania could be brewing now, and it would produce some terrific promos along the way, should that happen

Angle was solid here, very intense on the mic. He's going out there not just to retain his title, but to beat the holy hell outta Trips, and I gotta believe he'll get it done, very much in character and notibly powerful promo, I liked it alot

Undertaker vs Batista vs Randy Orton
To be acutely honest, I thought this might lag a bit considering Batista is nothing much and Orton isn't that good to write for either, but it ended up being alot easier to read, because the excitement levels were always at a high, no matter how or when the match looked like it was going to become a little stale, there was always something do to keep the match going smoothly. Batista going through the table was a good spot to include, and when he came back into the match he looked strong after taking the bump, but it also made going through the table look a bit weak because Batista recovered fairly quickly. Anyways, the steel chair was used a fair bit too, the ending was pretty good too although it didn't seem to make perfect sense. ***3/4

Cena has most likely been given number one for the Rumble by Bischoff, so this likely rules him out of winning, although I wouldn't be surprised to see Superman do it from the front...

Booker T was very good here, this is why I like his gimmick so much better than King Booker. He and Rey seem to be getting a little edgy, US Title could well be on the line between the two for a WM match after this. Booker was spot on, Rey didn't say much, but he was alright

Kurt Angle vs Triple H
Very good read, it did start to drag out a bit and didn't keep the excitement of the previous matches, but it took a brutal turn and really turned out to be a nasty fight. The ref took so many bumps here, which I wasn't a fan of, but all credit to ya, finding ways to keep the match going when you looked stuck and low on ideas. Belly to Belly to the outside was nuts, we see the ring bell and sledgehammer amongst other factors come into play, and Angle still wins it despite copping a sledgehammer shot, with a sneaky roll up, which is just desserts for Kurt. He may not have won the match convincingly, but he did win and did inflict some pain on Hunter, which was his goal at the start of the match. Trips would be furious with the amount of times he had the match won but there was no ref. Overall, very good, all the matches so far have been of the best quality possible considering who's involved etc. ***3/4

What happened to Cade & Murdoch? Undertaker? Kane? Hmm, intriguing...

Royal Rumble Match
Shelton is number one, and Cena is two. Well, I knew he'd be out sooner than later, I doubt he'll go all the way but. Another big name is out early in JBL, possible Flair confrontation must happen in this match. LOL! Nitro, filler boy. Helms in at five, some solid names in early, Cena must be nearly out of gas already after his match with HBK. Meh, Super Crazy and Eugene come in just to fill up the ring, possible clear out should be on the way soon. Finally someone goes and it's Nitro, and here comes the cleaner, KANE! Poor Super Crazy didn't last long, Kane could put in another dominant showing tonight. Regal in, Eugene out thanks to Helms. No real jobbers left in the ring, all much more established guys to duke it out now. Liking the pace the match is at, so far, not too confusing to read. Mercury is here, not long after Nitro went. Helms is gone a little earlier than I thought he'd go, but he had a decent run. Charlie Haas in, he's a face? OK. Kane is still looking good, there goes Regal. Carlito comes in, very cool. Kane sends Mercury packing, the Big Red Machine is dominating. Wow, Benoit? I hope you stop using him after this PPV...

Kane is gone, but you made him look strong, as the entire ring needed to team up to get rid of him. RAW gets a string of entrants with Masters and Striker. Two guys who hover above jobber status mainly, should be interesting to see how long they last. LOL at Benoit chopping both Carlito & Masters, pansies couldn't take him two on one. Ah, here comes the Flair/JBL fisticuffs! Flair is gonna light up someone's chest. Jeez, two eliminations. Masters gone, Haas dumped by his old partner that's gotta piss him off. LMAO! Kid Rock! Soz, I meant Kid Kash. Using Rock's theme music is humerous though, considering they look so alike. Nice exchange between Flair & Benoit with the chops, that would've been good to witness. Hardy and RVD enter, fan favourites starting to roll in on some good numbers. Ah, I almost forgot Striker was still in this one lol, RVD looks good making an early elimination

Finlay debuting? Alright. He starts off looking good until RVD knocks him down. Poor Benoit copped it bad with that shillelagh shot. Chavito is here, he and Kash to go at it? They do, as I thought, and Chavo is over big thanks to the Eddie chants here. Another CW getting a good draw, God is smiling on London, Chavo & Kash here with some good draws. Kennedy is back, he runs his mouth but backs it up, getting rid of Chavo instantly. Yuck, Rob Conway. THERE IT IS! Flair gets rid of JBL, and you can bet that'll set Bradshaw right off. Just as I thought, JBL mugs Flair and takes him out of the match, definate WM feud in the making now. Here comes a guy with a good draw and chance, Rey Mysterio. Thankfully Conway didn't last any longer than a cameo appereance. Kendrick has gotten a great number, pity he'll be gone soon. London is gone pretty quickly, and Cena gets rid of someone else in the form of Kid Kash.

WHOA! HBK has just laid out Cena! Definately, they're not finished, HBK turning "heel" although you'd expect most to still cheer for him. Lashley has a nice number, and he shows his power game off early, getting rid of Kendrick, making Bobby look good from the word go. Lashley absolutely dominates the remaining guys in the ring until Cade no shows and UNDERTAKER is coming! This, is the man who is gonna win, my pick! Lashley is gone already, that makes him look pretty weak IMO, he was only there for a few minutes, but atleast he lost out to one of the best. Undertaker continues to rampage through, Matt Hardy is gone after a good showing. Booker T gets a good draw too, leaving only one man remaining. Rey is gone after an OK performance and here comes Mr. Lucky, EDGE!

Edge goes wild, there goes Kennedy. I might take back my earlier statement and say Edge might win. Benoit goes, Cena comes back looking like a true "Superman" and eliminates Booker and Finlay, and we're down to six. How did Shelton & Cena especially get this far? Carlito still here, ugh. RVD goes next, sadly, and Shelton finally leaves after a wonderful showing. I don't believe it, Edge is gone thanks to Cena! We are down to Cena & Taker. Why do I have the horrible feeling that Cena is gonna win? O MY GOD! Cena did win! Just, wow. Not what I wanted, and it looked unbelievably inhuman, but great Rumble match anyways. ****1/2

Very good show Legend. A

My review is halfway to completion, expect it up tomorrow.
Bout time,

Time for a apologe. I completely forgot about this review, up until now after seeing the others posted. So it'll be delayed, since I've already read most of the Rumble from us being partners, and your match, it should be easier to review those more quickly. It should be up in good time, depends when I stop being lazy,

I can't wait for the build up until WrestleMania to add, and I hope your vacation is going swell, we can get back to talking more again once your back,
