First off, I must say, that Snap has pretty much just copied how you layout a show Wolf, it seems like I am reading one your SmackDown's from before WM, it's eerily similar...
Opening promo was very good. Went on for a while and almost dragged for too long, but Lesnar, Trips and Rock all make good claims to Vinnie Mac who will be the GM for tonight, everyone was well in character and a big triple threat is made for tonight's main event, which you could see developing from the beginning. Benoit vs the winner at RAW's Draft show should be good, regardless of which of the three get to win tonight. I'll pick a Benoit/Lesnar rematch
Little AMW pre-match interview was fair enough, had the traditional line from Storm to end it. AMW go over the Un Americans team, and I wonder who their next challengers will be? Dudley Boyz perhaps?
JBL interrupts a filler match between Holly & Snitsky before it can even begin, and gives a run of the mill JBL style promo. The end is what grabbed me, perhaps pushing JBL into the main event scene sooner than later? He'll be a good addition
Kash beats Dragon just to get the CW's on the show really, Kash could do with a new feud to sustain the CW title's status on SD!
Maven lol! Hardy will beat him definately, and Austin was back there after all. Sadly, I get the feeling that he's gonna be rubbed out of this thread soon
Short and precise promo from Benoit about what he has planned for 06 pretty much, to be the champion for the whole year as it's his for the taking apparently. I doubt he'll hold it for that long tho
Dudleyz easy winners over the Dicks, and then are attacked by the debuting Spirit Squad? Ugh, why not just have Kenny by himself. I hate the SS, the gimmick and the fact you just had them bury one of the best tag teams around. I guess they'll be AMW's next opponents, and I hope AMW send them packing. But, because they just debuted, I won't be surprised to see them win the belts and have a coasting run with them
As expected, Hardy beats Maven but not as easily as I thought, Maven for the first time in this thread has been made to look credible...
Benoit showing some of that vigor he has stored in him, and proves that he'll be no push over champion
HHH is an angry man, and he could stay that way if he doesn't win next up
Good main event, but one thing annoyed me, Twice Lesnar went for an F5, and twice Rock did the exact same counter, landing on his feet and nailing a DDT. That's all well and good once, but twice in the same match is kinda lackluster and perhaps a different counter should've been used. Anyways, Lesnar does connect with an F5, but HHH steals the win off the Next Big Thing! Big surprise to see The Game win this, but you can be sure Lesnar won't be done just yet
Wait a sec, AUSTIN?!?! O boy, I think it's the retirement speech.
Austin is going, but he ain't going just yet. Austin vs Rock in two weeks, what a match for SmackDown! It's gonna suck not seeing Austin around anymore in this thread, but what has to be done, has to be done. Great moment to end the show with Austin & Rock downing some beers, and it should be a great way to say goodbye to Stone Cold.
I can see why Wolfy decided to go with you Snap. You are quite the writer. I did not remember you being this good from before. Only thing is, try and differ your shows layouts in the future as this felt like a Wolfy show, and not his partner's show. Apart from that, this was good stuff, and it's safe to say that "Being the booker" is gonna be as good as it's been before. 8/10
