Just thought I should let you know you’re still the best going around, and if possible you seem to improve week by week. Everything just develops so fluently. I’m not going to review a show so much as this will just be a general post about, well, everything.
I think you’re doing a great job keeping the World Heavyweight Title picture fresh, despite it featuring the same names as it has for quite some time now. I’m certain you’re heading for an E&C main event, so I expect Christian to ward Umaga off eventually, and for Cena to fail to do what he did the previous year in capturing the belt around six weeks before WrestleMania.
There’s A LOT to like about the Bischoff/Anderson thing, and everyone that’s involved. Angle’s return and face turn (I’m guessing, although it’s obviously not being announced explicitly) comes at the right time, with him having done just about everything from a heel standpoint against the top guys on RAW. I’m expecting Angle/Umaga soon (WrestleMania? The timing seems right), although Angle/Kennedy has potential too once Kennedy has dealt with his pesky WM match with Triple H.
Kennedy is another I’m liking on RAW. The feud with John Cena (who I’ll get to in a moment) has been great in terms of elevating him, and the Triple H thing should put him over the top. It’ll be interesting when you pull the trigger with him, as there may not be room to do it on RAW, but I feel like you’re intent on it happening there. With Benjamin seemingly approaching a face turn and potential move into the main event too, you have a lot to work with there.
Cena’s heel turn has been built well. The interactions with Matt Hardy really solidified it happening, and I expect he’ll crack it when he finally can’t get it done one-on-one against Christian, which seems to be the only thing holding back the heel turn right now. If I had to guess, I’d say he’ll get Undertaker at WM, but then I may just have all of these matches wrong. There hasn’t been a whole lot of foreshadowing for that one too, so maybe you’ll do what you did with Cena/Orton and have Christian/Cena II at WM. Plus, there’s always Batista’s conflict with Undertaker too.
The actual gimmick behind the Bischoff/Anderson team match is good, because it kind of feels like they’ve both reached a point where they can go. I suspect it’ll be Bischoff, but I wouldn’t be surprised for Anderson to not be GM for much longer either.
SmackDown doesn’t quite have the freshness in the main event scene that RAW has, but Flair’s return has brought some life. His team is frankly a little underwhelming, but the David Flair/Bob Orton promo was enough for me to love the match. Jericho’s promo with Joey Styles had me convinced he would come back heel, but he has swung a few times in this thread, so maybe these promos are for his return to try to eliminate Orton. Again, not the freshest, but I think you get that on SmackDown.
I don’t have a whole lot else. I’m still reading and think you’re still immense. I know you said no Survivor Series predictions, so as I read back over this, it looks like I’ve left WM predictions instead. Oh well.
