The Angels of Anarchy vs. The Master Craftsmen: As expected we get a draw here. WWE RULE BOOK! :P OF COURSE! Was wishing for something different here, but this is the safe and logical step to progress this storyline and push for the triple threat. I like the 5 more minutes chant, good stuff.
I could only imagine some off the cuff remarks by Punk after the match going to a draw, especially about this WWE rule book. The way you are booking the follow-up is kind of strange, but that's just the purest in me liking everyone kept strong before a match at a PPV.
Cody Rhodes/Dustin Rhodes Segment: Cody Rhodes apparently watched bWo's WWE debut...Nice little segment to build up the Rhodes dynamics some more, actually starting to feel sorry for Dustin at this point so you got me emotionally invested.
ALL HAIL KING BOOKAH...I mean Jerry Lawler...
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler vs. Dustin Rhodes w/Cody Rhodes: Guess this angle will come to an end at Nemesis before a possible Dustin vs Cody feud?
Beth Phoenix vs. Mickie James: Really good, this is what I wanted for the second week. Now it'll be interesting to see where you go with this next as there are plenty of options for how to move forward with this.
Rey Mysterio vs. Kurt Angle Promo: Good match up set up here, I just wish it was more unpredictable given the fact that Mysterio rarely if ever loses his mask in BTBs. An interesting dynamic here is I couldn't see WWE Mysterio wanting Angle to lose his medals so it'll be interesting to see what the aftermath is.
William Regal vs. Shelton Benjamin w/Theodore Long & Alicia Fox: .......HOOD JUSTICE BABY! I DIG! Even though I don't get my beloved Finlay vs. Regal match now
. Looks like Hardy vs Benjamin will continue, which I'm not really into because Hardy's character is very dull at the moment.
Matt Hardy & John Cena vs. Mr. Kennedy & The Miz: Good decision to give The Miz the fall here.
Katie Lea/Harry Smith Segment: Psh, Harry is still a heel for making Katie Lea choose between him or Burchill.
Survivor Series Announcement: IT'S A CONSPIRACY! We better get Jesse Ventura on the case...oh wait...PAUL HEYMAN OR FIT FINLAY FOR GM! Belfast! Belfast! Belfast! Got to have a believin'!
Rhyno vs. Umaga w/Armando Estrada: GORE! GORE! GORE! RAAAWRRR! replacebatistawithrhyno So it looks like we have a squash here T.T. Gets the story across great though and at least The War Machine gets a main event match on Raw.
