Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment
Legend’s Raw Feedback.
Sorry that this is so late man. I’ve been totally snowed of late.
Good way to start the show with Edge. It makes sense to have him kick off the show as you really want him to be made out as a big deal as he heads over to Smackers to battle for the World Title. Edge’s character was pretty spot on for the most part and his dialogue in the opening stages was fine but when Carlito came out things really picked up. Carlito was great, you portrayed him brilliantly and a lot of what he had to say was funny shit. Coach was okay, nothing spectacular but no matter what he does he fails to entertain me. His character does absolutely nothing for me ever. Lol @ Kurt no selling the blow from Coach. That was something I could definitely see happening. This segment was very well written and very easy to visualise, you painted a good picture of what was going on. Edge hitting the Spear on Kurt definitely makes me believe that Kurt will walk out the winner later tonight. BTW, I definitely think Carlito will win MITB. Nice way to open the show.
No shock to see Guerrero go over here. Solid recap, good to see you go into some detail with it. Masters had no credibility to begin with so the loss isn’t exactly curtains for him. Chavo won’t win MITB but he’s a good choice because he’s an original one.
Flair promo? Hooray. Here we go. Solid enough promo from Flair, his character was fine but I don’t think it was as good as some of your previous promos with him recently. He felt a little dry, the intensity he usually portrays wasn’t quite there in comparison. Still, a solid promo. I definitely think Flair will go over JBL.
Well it seems that ECW is going to play a big role in the feud between Hunter and Van Dam. Hopefully it doesn’t engulf the whole feud.
Haas finally gets a win. Nothing major to speak of other than the fact that this finally gives Charlie some momentum. The whole deal with the Spirit Squad continues to build, I expect when the WGTT reunion does happen it’ll be a big thing.
Well this was different. Bischoff is generally very heel friendly so it was good to see him stand up to them. Carlito’s build toward MITB continues, he’s got to be winning the thing. He’s had so much build towards it. The whole thing with Masters was a little bit odd. Hopefully this doesn’t build towards a team between Carlito and Masters ala Wrestlemania 22.
This segment was fucking brilliant. Triple H’s intensity really shone through here. He was awesome, him beating the crap out of the backstage chap and then Eugene certainly establishes him very clearly as a heel. The opening of the squash where u noted that Hunter was still in street clothes and that the match wasn’t on the top of his priorities this was great. The aftermath was clearly the talking point. The character you portrayed for both guys was spot on for the most part. Although I have to admit two things, firstly I was surprised to see that RVD made his way out so quickly. I would’ve thought that it would’ve suited the moment a lot better had he made Hunter wait for a bit before coming out because it would presumably irritate the shit out of him. Also I didn’t like the fact that Hunter caved in on the match proposal straight away, I think you could’ve waited until at least next week before the Street Fight challenge arose. None the less, Hunter looks quite the force coming out of this mate. He looks in total control of RVD who really needs to regain some credibility soon.
Intriguing stuff between Shelton and Haas. The whole situation with these two continues to develop, I like that they are showing animosity between each other yet they’re also on the same page to a degree. The match next week should be sweet but it is obvious that Helms will go over. I was surprised that the Intercontinental Title wasn’t on the line in this match as well to be honest. It would’ve been a good way to get the belt off Shelton so he can really get into his feud with the WGTT.
Victoria is a beast. Good to see her destroy everyone. Brutality amongst females is good. This show has been full of beat downs, probably a little bit of overkill.
I really thought Big Show could’ve had a little more to say before he attempted to unveil Kane’s “maker” Having said that though, good to see the interaction between Show and Kane verbally was kept to a minimum as I think it does much more for the feud to have them beat the fuck out of everyone. Paul Bearer’s return is huge but I question the logic in giving this feud so much exposure since I’m sure you’ve said that this match won’t be at Wrestlemania. When this feud eventually culminates in a match, it’s going to be a brutal affair. Anything less would be a let down. This segment was total chaos, it could’ve even been a little bit of overkill, because it started to drag on a little towards the end.
I couldn’t really get into this promo. The content was good but I just couldn’t get into Shawn’s character. I don’t understand why he’s acting all mysteriously. It doesn’t make a lot of sense. Where’s Cena been tonight, btw?
Fucking awesome Main Event. You booked booked it brilliantly. It was a very well written match which maintained both guys credibility nicely. The finish was booked very smartly as it continues Angle’s momentum, Edge doesn’t look at all weak and Bischoff looks like an asshole. The only part of this match I didn’t like was Angle kicking out of the spear. Not overly pleasing, you need his finisher looking strong.
Overall mate, another solid show. Your booking shone through again as you made all the right decisions, but I think that there were a few to many beat downs for the one show. I know they all had good reason but some of them could’ve been put off. Your promos continue to shine as well, as there really weren’t any dull moments or meaningless segments at any point in the show.
