3 Hour Special Review
Right off the bat I feel I have to say that the interaction between JR, Coachman and tonight Cole and Tazz is great in this thread.
The choices for GMs are interesting and are the best choices for the job regardless IMO. Bischof will shake things up showing a bias towards the heels maybe even taking one under his wing ala Angle? Paul Heyman may show a little bias to the ECW originals. Perhaps we will see an extreme influence on Smackdown with Heyman there?
Luther Reigns leaves DX weakened which I'm sure will come into play in their Horsemen feud. LESNAR! Well that opens up some new feuds on Raw and gives him a chance to feshen up his character after losing at WM.
Carlito vs. Christian seemed like a good opener to the show which would get the fans going. I can only see this being a mini-feud to give Christian the final springboard to the Main event scene.
I really enjoyed this Brock/Eric scene and the tension was clearly evident between the two. I can see some potential friction with Bisch and Brock down the road concerning the title.
Well I don't see Snitsky doing much on Raw and Bischoff must be pissed that he lost Undertaker! A great choice here to move Taker to SD which balances out the loss of Lesnar.
Hall vs. Laree seems like a decent Women's match and it is great that you are beefing up the Women's division after seeing Shiquaia (sp) leave after WM.
I love this Jericho segment and Y2J comes off perfectly as the cocky heel. I laughed my ass off when he was calling Todd Rod.
Jericho was priceless when he was dissing England and soccer ball was genius. Also the everest comment had me in stiches. It looks like this Undertaker Jericho feud isn't over after the draft and it will be interesting to see where Snap goes with this. A great segment here.
Six man tag match is great and takes advantage of having everyone on the one show for a night. The action is quick paced as expected for a tag match with these people involved. Rey screwed his own team! It seems that Edge and Rey's feud will continue for a while yet.
I like the New Horsemen even if it was a quick transition from Evoloution. Flair does most of the talking however Tista and Dinsmore get a chance to develop on the stick.
Wow Bischoff is getting destroyed in this draft as RVD moves to SD while Simon Dean moves in the other direction. This was great the way that Bischoff tries to hide that he isn't pissed and then snaps after Simon Dean offers him the hair dye.
Bischoff really is pissed off! Rey has to defend the breifcase in an I Quit match. This match should be great and Rey picked the wrong night to cross Bisch.
HBK/Batista: I think HBK needed this win as Tista is only seen as a bit part player in the Horsemen and HBK needs to regain some credibility.
This segment with Cristian/Tomko/Test and the Page 3 girls is brilliant. The dialouge between Christian and Tomko was brilliantly done and seemed so natural. Also we see Christian is a bit of a ladies man.
Bischoff is really getting owned in this draft and the Horsemen have been weakened to keep this DX/Horsemen feud fair.
Wow Haas to SD and I guess the titles will have to be vacated.
Cena vs. Flair is decent but Orton plants Cena to show that there is still life in this feud yet.
Benoit vs. HHH. Wow. A great main event which caps off a great show. This was a suberb way to give Benoit credibility as champion defeating the game after such a long contest.
Great Show Man! I really enjoyed reading it.
