Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment
DH6's SmackDown! Feedback
Liked how the show started off with The Cutting Edge, leaving the Steel Cage as the main event. Edge didn't get as microphone time as he could've before Batista came out, but his character was great. You got Batista's anger type character down perfectly, and it really got the intimidation across. The thing with these two watching each other's back may not be the greatest idea, but it's a great way to work a WrestleMania Main Event storyline.
The tag team division you've got on SmackDown! is fabulous. I have a feeling that it will be Londrick vs. MNM for the tag titles, possibly at WrestleMania. Shame that such a great match was brought to a hault by MNM, but it really establishes their heel status, so I'm fine with it.
JBL was in great character. He'll obvioulsy accept Ric Flair's challenge, which should be a great match at WrestleMania. His character during this segment was great. Like how you're giving him good amounts of mic time.
Don't really like how you have Vince as a face, but I s'pose I'll put up with it. The fifteen minutes of fame should be good, and possibly a Triple Threat between the three teams? I would mark, tbh, but MNM vs. Londrick would also be just as solid.
Two good guys to choose to compete to be in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Having Matt in the match will be good, but was hoping Jordan would be in it. Hopefully you'll have one or two heels in the match.
In the beginning, it felt like Flair was saying Wooo a little too much. It just seemed like he would say it between some words. Putting 'Wooo' between words won't put Flair into character, imo. Great for Bradshaw to come out, and I have a feeling that the match will be made tonight. This makes SmackDown! look stroner, because a lot of the time inter-promotional matches are made on Raw. Great intensity by Flair, I could really feel it. Glad that the match did get announced, and I have a feeling it will turn out to be epic.
Not sure if this means that Kennedy's guaranteed to be in the MITB Match, because it would be better if he actually qualified, imo. Liked how Book Man was doing some commentary; watching his WrestleMania opponent. Possibly some interference coming, but sometimes, the opponent will win the match and the other opponent will just stand up on the outside and have a staredown. Good choice for Kennedy, because I think that him and Rey work fairly good together. Good for Booker's distraction to sort of cost Rey, because it wasn't quite interference, but it still cost him the match. Didn't think the slap was necessary, since there hasn't been enough build for this match, imo.
This segment was my favourite of the night so far, tbh. I could just imagine it in my mind. I don't know, I just really enjoyed it. Hopefully Orton is a part of WrestleMania somehow, because it would be a huge loss if he wasn't. Possibly Randy vs. Vince?
The short interview really got across how focussed Noble was... until Kash attacked him from behind. This has been the second match where the champion has attacked. Not the best booking idea, but I guess it will set up the WrestleMania Match.
Lashley's quite focussed for a heel, but I guess you've been building him up more monster like, from what I read at No Way Out. Interesting to see if he'll prevail in the cage.
Bad booking decision to interview No Way Out after like 5 minutes ago he was beaten viciously by Kid Kash. This just wasn't realistic.
Definitely looking forward to this match. Good for Finlay to get busted open, since he's having a face turn and the face usually get bloodied first. Great for Heymen to slam the door on Finlay, as that was realistic and typical. Then Undertaker coming through the bottom of the ring? This was definitely unrealistic, and don't think that it could be done, imo. Finlay winning was good, but Lashley getting pulled through was strange. Well, the whole thing with Undertaker breaking through the canvas was weird, imo. Undertaker vs. Lashley was expected. Don't want Undertaker's streak to end against a rookie like Lashley. Would much rather it end to a legend like Flair, Michaels or possibly The Rock.
Overall the show was pretty good. Disappointed that Edge and Batista appeared at the beginning of the show and that was it. It's the WrestleMania Main Event, so keep them more active. Definitely some WrestleMania matches in the works, with a great card set to be on hand.
