Re: Being The Booker
Raw February 13; FresnoEDIT IN: ALMOST FORGOT!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! OR SHOULD I SAY... DRUNK DAY??!!
Absolutely phenomenal opening between Cena and Orton. It was very, very well written, and made perfect sense all around. The way you’ve approached this rematch, and both men’s current attitudes towards it is superb. Both men were in character, without using their egos. That wont last, but it is certainly a nice place to start, and following the #1 contender being crowned last week, it was perfect to start the show this way. But I don’t know, I still say Cena beats Orton again, although I would LOVE to see the legend Killer finally achieve his WrestleMania destiny.
Nice clean win for the Intercontinental Champ. Thought you might be going somewhere else with this. Anyway, WGTT can now stay with a WM match as a team, rather than them breaking down over the IC belt.
Great interaction between Tomko, Christian, Todd, and the fans. Well mixed segment here, which delivered a Christian promo that followed SNME’s actions well. The popcorn bit was too funny, and your cleverness didn’t stop there, as the beer can bit, and Christian’s hopeful dismissal of it were brilliant building blocks. Building blocks for the certain Austin ass kicking Christian is gonna get later. My favorite feud in all of BTB, period. Long running, and the best built EVER.
Shaniqua is the Big-Black-Bitch for sure. Don’t really know what you’ll do here, but Trish may be in serious trouble.
Loved Mania 9, which IMO, is highly underrated as a good Mania. Not near the best, but IMO, not near as bad as it get rapped for. JR’s first Mania as well!!
Carlito is pissed, and Hogan is set to be the MITB creator, which is cool. Cant wait for the announcement next week. WHICH I HAVE NOT READ. I do not spoil shows for myself, including reading others replies. Foley announcement to come up.
Truly surprised Austin opted not to show, but it just furthers the best BTB feud ever even more. I just cant wait for this match. Austin never was, and certainly is not now, great in the ring, but Christian is, and can carry the in ring aspect, while the sheer feud intensity will make this a magical match, one I think Austin will, and really should win. Nice win for Rey BTW.
OMG!! What an incredibly unique scenario for WM. A six man tag!! Hogan, Foley and EUGENE!! I think that works well!! Not toooooooo keen on Eugene, and I wouldn’t have minded a straight tag match, but it certainly makes sense. As for Flair and Batista’s partner, I’d say maybe… TRIPLE H!! Makes the most sense to me, as he seems lost for Mania atm. Or, perhaps Rhyno will turn heel, and align with his enemies Flair and Batista, being an even match for Eugene in the match up. Either way, this is awesome. The one thing I think is that you need to work on the Foley-Hogan companionship from now till then though, as they are both huge names, who until now, haven’t even mentioned eachothers names on TV in the last 20 years. But, seeing this match booked is a prime example of how original your thread and ideas are. And so we wont have a Mania match in common after all, as I could of swore it’d be Flair vs. Hogan in this thread too. Cool Wolfy.
Taker gets the academic win and… JERICHO!!! I LOVE IT!! Jericho-Taker at Mania!! Fabulous decision, and one I almost made when planning my Mania last year. Answers a lot of questions, but really leaves HHH looking lost, and now maybe he’ll def. enter the six man. This has been one of the best Raw’s I HAVE EVER read!!
My god, the greatness doesn’t end in this show. Edge in rare form. I have a feeling he’ll be added to the Hogan special match, in which he’ll win the MITB contract IMO. I think its fitting since he won the first one. And the Val Venis Condom match comment was priceless!! Raw altogether, in rare form tonight, with absolutely everyone taking it up a notch tonight in terms of storyline building and intensity.
And the main event wasted no time starting to end the calmness between Orton and Cena. Not much to say, a big win for DX, and a wedge driven between World Champ and # 1 contender. Nice cap off to an absolutely fabulous night. WrestleMania will be HUGE!!

Prefect way to open the show, with Austin finally MAKING THE CHALLENGE!! And Christian will no doubt accept. Nice commentary from Steve, calling Christian on the carpet about being a chickenshit. Not the best it could have been I feel, but enough to get the job done, and the points across. I loved the last line about it not being a nightmare. Monday Night’s interaction will be electric for sure, and I cannot wait!!
Academic win for Hardy in what was an academic match to build towards his match with JBL. Good start to the feud.
Angle punks Backlund, which works. This feud is building maybe a bit too much like Angle-HBK did at 21, but whatever, and it matters even less since that didn’t happen in this thread. Angle vs. Hart will be classic, and by all means, Hart must win, otherwise Backlund is right, and Kurt is just beating up old men.
JBL is pissed, and Hardy will certainly take out Noble next week.
ARGHHH!! Hogan beating Savage. Back then I was still young, and a “believer”. I wanted Savage to win BAD! I thought he was gonna beat Hogan, because I thought he was a better wrestler, which again I thought mattered due to being a “believer”.
Angle snaps another ankle from Bret’s past, and it was nice for him to win with the sharpshooter.
Erm, I could have SWORN I saw that you released Steiner in the news a couple weeks ago, yet he is in the back…? Maybe I’m confused. Odd segment really. Funny thought, with Maven wishing it were him. Austin kicks his ass. But again, it was odd, and I ask… WHY?
Very good Highlight reel, and a very sensible explanation from Y2J. He needs to make an impact in his eyes, and what better way? He wont win, but he’ll have a big match, and will be one of the select sacrifices for Taker at Mania. Match should own, as I don’t quite remember them EVER wrestling. Taker on Highlight Reel next week…? AWESOME!!
Nice retain against Kidman, and London seems okay, unless I overlooked an injry comment.
Funny Rock piece, despite being a short recap style promo.
Decent filler I guess, with the champs and Kanyon picking up a win.
My god, I just cant figure out where HHH is going. It really doesn’t seem as though he’ll be in the six man now. Perhaps a ploy though? I just don’t know. But wait, he wants a big name…? What about STING?? What happened to him in this thread, as I’ve missed that. But wait, I’ve got it, he wants a main event match, he wants a big match, and next week, he wants a McMahon in the ring to talk about it. I am sensing HHH vs. Vince or Shane now, which has the storied history to build on the fly, and be tremendous. Who knows though.
Tremendous main event, ands one of the best SD! Has ever had! Rock taps out… CLEAN!! Benoit is rolling now, and Rock is looking a bit below par, which scares me even more when it comes to HBK’s fate at Mania now. Nonetheless, a top notch Main Event, with a fabulous finish. And finally Brock comes out, and does Benoit in, which this feud needed, and Lesnar needed as the animalistic champion he is. Awesome ending Wolfy, and I can’t wait for Mania.
Fabulous couple of shows, with Raw obviously ahead of SD!. Look for a short review of the next Raw in a day or two my friend.
