England must adore their hometown boys enough to cheer them, but it makes sense since in essence, they are making their country proud by reigning as Tag Team Champs. "The crowd booms as Angle stands back in the ring." Umm, Angle? A terrific, terrific matchup to start off the show, though I've never liked it that WWE always steps things up when they go to Europe. They should just treat it as a normal show, not a semi-PPV. I'm VERY happy to see that London and Kendrick are not out of the title hunt just yet. I have a strong admiration for you giving every single division the proper attention that they deserve.
I absolutely loved Kid Kash's interview. Nothing short of perfect, that's for sure.
Hmm, Orlando Jordan. Nice of you to remind everyone that he was a great US Champion, keeping his credibility in tact, though there surely can't be a whole lot left for him to do. Hardy, however, should be well on his way to possibly capturing the United States Championship. Only time will tell. KEN - NA - DEH. I was really upset when he didn't win MITB, but I'm sure he'll be able to find himself doing something awesome soon enough. Matt challenged Ken? This feud seems alright so far, and the best part of it all is that you're taking your time, and not rushing into a Pay-Per-View Match.
Booker T is a wildcard. He just lost the United States Championship, so really, this would be a golden opportunity to boost him into the main event spot, which I see happening. Royalty? King Booker? Don't think so, and if you do happen to go down that path, I'm gonna come out and say it may not be the wisest because it will get pretty darn old after a while. I'm seeing a whole lot of King Booker
. Though so far it's not that bad, maybe because Sharmell isn't doing all of Book's talking, and he doesn't have a whole locker room of jesters.
It's Gunner Scott. That name was just so pathetic. Newcomers are so lucky, they always get to plough through jobbers for a while. I still don't know who this woman is, has it been said in news and notes or whatever? Meh, Albright beats Nunzio, a tough victory to say the least
A solid promo between Shane and JBL here, with both men in seemingly good character (just like basically every promo you write). Leave us hanging, will ya? I found that to be rude~!
I honestly don't know what McMahon wants, though it probably has something to do with maybe getting revenge on Edge for Spearing him last week?
~I just realised we haven't seen Batista yet. I must've missed something, may he won't be in attendance tonight?
Michael Cole blows when he gets in the ring. And along with that, I've never liked in-ring interviews like this, unless it's some host show like the Highlight Reel or something. Rey Mysterio is definitely not what I would call a good mic worker, but at least you're giving it a try. However, I'd try to stay away from Mysterio promos for the most part. More Regal and Burchill, huh? I suppose now's the best time to use 'em - England. I guess this segment was not bad, though including Shane McMahon calling out Edge later on, that will be three in-ring segments. A little much, eh?
Jamie and Rey teaming up can only lead to interference from the people who are thriving for their titles. Solid enough interview from Noble. The only thing I'm not too keen about in the Noble/Kash feud is that they're both rednecks
Matt Hardy and Finlay are most likely to have a match at Judgment Day with the way things are headed. Both men are currently on fire, and Matt gave Finlay his first pinfall loss. Juvi .. meh, the whole Mexicools thing didn't really work out (that's just my opinion, actually), which is what I think really fucked him over big.
This ten second promo didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, though I know there is some significance to it, I just don't know what.
This CM Punk promo has been been playing for a few weeks now, so soon enough I expect that we'll see an exact date in the promo. I'm excited to see how you use Punk, rather than sticking him on a jobber of a brand, ECW.
Paul Heyman's first few lines in this monologue made him soon like a psycho creeper. That's never good news. Heyman's more of an evil genius than some psychopath, and this promo gave me vibes of a psychopath personna. In otherwords, I really, really hope that's not how it's gonna be. Heyman always does awesome stuff on the mic, nothing out of the ordinary, except for him being a creeper, but whatevs.
"I don’t think there’s ever been a match in the history of Friday Night SmackDown with as much gold involved as there will be next week; the tag team, U.S & Cruiserweight Champions all getting it on." - Ok, so this line by Michael Cole baffled me because just last week, every SmackDown champion was involved in just one match.
I'm really liking this whole Election business. Creativity simply flows in the idea. Ahah, I love how you can have a superstar take heat for saying something the fans don't like, but quickly bounce back with a comment the fans will LOVE. Great stuff. ANGRY EDGE~!!!! Edge as mood-swings, but they're portrayed well, particularily in this segment. A fantastic main event, and Batista finally making an appearance on the show was golden. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Edge has to defend against the Undertaker, with Lashley interferring and leading to a Judgment Day rematch, but it all depends.
Great stuff, nearly flawless as there were a few minor things throughout. Keep the ball rollin'. 9.5/10
